I really hope this game will also be available on Steam and not just exclusively on the crappy Windows Store...

This was my game of the year 2015. Hit me right in the feels. I really hope we see more Life is Strange in the future.

When my SSD comes in on god fucking knows when, I'm going to install Windows 10 and I have the laundry list ready to roll when it comes to disabling 'features'.

Desktop PCs with Windows 10 do NOT get encrypted by default when install the OS from scratch, the article is talking about Windows phones and tables... don't worry

I just wanted to get DX12, and that has been delayed without any word as to when we can expect it.

What do you mean: "DX12 has been delayed"?

DX12 is included in Win10 at least nvidia supports it already with their Win10 drivers, there even a few DX12 demos available and one game...

No problems here.

Probably because I'm running Windows 7.

False sense of privacy. I'm not surprised. MS added a LOT of spying settings in Windows 7 during the last few years, without any way at all of disabling them using any Windows settings menu.

For Windows 10 users, just install Spybot Anti-Beacon and be done with most of the privacy concerns. Windows 10 will thereafter spy less on you than Windows 7 does on default.

BTW: Anti-beacon does also work on Windows 7, just try it and be surprised how much privacy you got

What's the name of a similar game, name is very short, like 4/5 letters IIRC. Anyone have names in mind?

Brink?

great, can't wait for the finale.

The story-telling and emotions part of this game is very strong. Very unique and fresh experience.

Does anyone know what happens when you use a trainer? Does this make the game not scary?

This will make the game, not be a game. It's like the ability to drive in a racing game.

Amnesia is all about being help- and defend-less and trying to survive. By enabling godmode, you disabling the core gameplay element. Better go watch a walkthrough on youtube, same effect as using a trainer.

By simply running through the map, one cannot finish this game. The game has actually real gameplay and good puzzles to solve and therefore is not just simply a Dear Esther kind of game.

I really enjoyed this game, breathtaking visuals and a gaming experience to remember. Can't wait to play the redux version.

BTW: at least with the initial version, using 3D Vision is a must. It enhances the experience quite considerably.

Already preordered the game but I will avoid any gameplay or teaser videos. The less one knows before playing this game, the better it is

It took a lot for me to play it through and finish it, it was tough, but I did it, and it is a great game. Amnesia: AMFP was just 'okay' on its own, but I was pretty much disappointed. Now, if I can just work up the nerves to play and finish Outlast (by Red Barrels).

The Outlast games have been the most nerve-wrecking games for me ever. Way above the Amnesia series but I still very much enjoyed Amnesia and will certainly buy SOMA.

I usually buy games based on the quality of the game, but to each their own.

Did you buy Arkham Knight, too, because Warner opened up about it being a shitty port and even pulling the game for a complete overhaul? Just asking.

You misunderstood my comment. I bought both Trine 1 & 2 and spent over 40 hours in both games combined. I immensely enjoy these type of games.

Concerning Trine 3, I anyhow planned on buying that game because I don't doubt for a second, that the game is fun. It's just that I don't have much time for the moment and intended to buy the game at a later stage.

I agree, that you shouldn't applaud someone making a mistake, it happens, especially if the intention to create a great game was real and the game, in the end, still turns out to be great fun but just too short.

That's why I bought the game now full price to support them... and no, I haven't bought Arkham Knight yet, eventhough I own the previous 3 games.

After reading this honest statement by the developers, I opened Steam and bought the game instantly, instead of waiting for a sale.

Way to go, too bad not many developers are this open about what went wrong during the production, even though it is still an amazing fun game.

Was wondering that myself. I guess (hope) they calculated the budget they got through from kickstarter to last throughout 5 chapters.

I'm almost done with chapter 2 and enjoying the game quite a bit so far.
