So they release Godus Wars, a game with almost no reviews, and say they will delete the Godus store page and focus on this game instead.

Right, not a way to delete all the negative feedback and brush it into the rug or anything.


SSSSSHHHHH!!!!! Look, pretty pictures!


OOOHHHH. Wait, these are all pictures of you.

Putting Amiga into the console section? HERESY!

It is a microcomputer and a damn fine one at that.

Fucking hell Peter, all you had to do was remake Populous with modern technology, it wasn't that hard but you had to fuck it up, as always.

Also, this may be the first early access game to leap into early access.

savage, fast-paced combat and execute bloody and bone-crushing attacks that will see heads rolling and limbs flying.

But will there be boobs? Or are boobs inappropriate for children?

Conan is inappropriate for children. Period.

The great shame is that almost nobody has read the original Robert E. Howard Conan stories and all they know of Conan are the movies or the comics, both of which really lack compared to the original stories. In the stories Conan never, ever, walked around without armor and yet all the portrayals we have of him is bare chested.

Since Howard's Conan stories are now in the public domain I recommend them to anyone who likes the fantasy genre.

Indeed. Fuck cancer, fuck this fucking disease. Alan Rickman was one of my favorite actors of all time. Heck, I always thought he would have been the perfect Ankh-Morpork's Vetinari if he had been given the part.

For me, Queen have always been the number one band but Bowie followed them pretty closely. So sad he passed, one of the last true legends in the music field.

Since Conan was written in 1932, isn't it and its character out of copyright and in the public domain now?

If I'm not mistaken, all the original work by Robert E. Howard is now public domain. However the pastiches from other authors that came from his work are not.

News Comments > Star Wars Battlefront 40-Player Battle Shown
35. Re: Star Wars Battlefront 40 Player Battle Shown Dec 1, 2015, 10:22 ASeven
 
Here's something curious. Publishers, or any company for that matter, love to tout about sales numbers, especially in the critical first days of sales, however EA has been deadly silent about the numbers of sales this game has generated.

I think not even the Star Wars theme was enough to save this utterly mediocre game from selling decently, and that's a good thing. Strip away the Star Wars theme and you have one of the shallowest FPS experiences of the past year and the way player numbers are dropping I think this game will die faster than Titanfall and Evolve.

Ah yes, the old minority fallacy. Like the Payday2 complainers that were the minority, or so the minority of fanboys wished us to believe.

Although it might not affect the quality of their arguments, lets be realistic here, this is the internet, it's usually ALWAYS the minority that's the loudest.

True, but there's always notable exceptions and at this point KF2 has the potential to become the next Payday2 in terms of fuckery made by the devs with critical response from the community.

And people keep arguing about the content of the microtransactions without addressing the critical factor that makes people unhappy, the timing of Tripwire presenting the microtransactions.

The reason why people are up in arms is not the microtransactions themselves but the timing of them, presented during early access while the game has developed damn slowly, with only 2 major content updates. It is fucking tasteless to announce microtransactions while the game is nowhere near completion, with a lot of promised classes, perks, guns and maps still not in the game. Had they announced this after the game was complete then I don't think the furor would be as great, but doing this while the game is still very much incomplete reeks of greediness and sheer stupidity.

Is it greed to implement a feature expressly designed to further empower the modding community, in the vein of Valve's player-created content shops for TF2, Dota 2, CS:GO, etc.? And regardless, does such a feature not also need to be tested and iterated upon as much as anything else they add to the game, hence the Early Access period being appropriate for its deployment? If it's content you want from them, why do you disagree with their efforts to offload the creation of cosmetics to the community?

I'll repeat again. If the game was finished people wouldn't have complained so much. Doing it during early access while the game is far from complete, however, is another thing entirely. I don't give a fuck about them wanting to provide us with more content with his cash store, that's what they promised us from the start before any microtransactions were even known and that promise was far from fulfilled. And they promised maps, perks, guns, classes, not fucking hats.

Finish the game first, if you need microtransactions to finish a game during early access then it means the developer was already in financial trouble, and therefore maybe they should have completed the development of the game and make due with their initial promises in order to release it to generate more sales before implementing this stupidly timed cash store? Just a thought. As it was they now burned a lot of bridges and you can bet there are a lot of refunds being asked to Steam right now. Financially speaking, this was a very moronic move.

Reviews are brutal and on point, game is pretty but ultimately a very shallow mess of a game. Also, being a DICE game, it's reported as being plagued with tons of issues, from not being able to connect to servers to BSODs.

Guess not even all the shills and the subreddit bribes could save this.

Before Sensible Soccer there was Kick Off, so Dino Dini is the real grandfather. Kick Off started the storm for football games, which produced Sensible Soccer years after. Though Microprose Soccer came before and it was by Sensible Software but it was mainly not as good as Kick Off 1 and 2 were.

News Comments > Europa Universalis IV: The Cossacks Next Month
2. Re: Europa Universalis IV: The Cossacks Next Month Nov 11, 2015, 13:48 ASeven
 
Ah yes, the trailer alludes to what may have been the most badass letter ever written in history, the reply of the Zaporozhian Cossacks to Sultan Mehmed IV of the Ottoman Empire, if this letter has indeed existed to begin with.



Sultan Mehmed IV to the Zaporozhian Cossacks:

As the Sultan; son of Muhammad; brother of the sun and moon; grandson and viceroy of God; ruler of the kingdoms of Macedonia, Babylon, Jerusalem, Upper and Lower Egypt; emperor of emperors; sovereign of sovereigns; extraordinary knight, never defeated; steadfast guardian of the tomb of Jesus Christ; trustee chosen by God Himself; the hope and comfort of Muslims; confounder and great defender of Christians - I command you, the Zaporogian Cossacks, to submit to me voluntarily and without any resistance, and to desist from troubling me with your attacks.

--Turkish Sultan Mehmed IV

The Cossacks' reply came as a stream of invective and vulgar rhymes, parodying the Sultan's titles:

Version 1:

Zaporozhian Cossacks to the Turkish Sultan!

O sultan, Turkish devil and damned devil's kith and kin, secretary to Lucifer himself. What the devil kind of knight are you, that can't slay a hedgehog with your naked arse? The devil excretes, and your army eats. You will not, you son of a bitch, make subjects of Christian sons; we've no fear of your army, by land and by sea we will battle with thee, fuck your mother.

You Babylonian scullion, Macedonian wheelwright, brewer of Jerusalem, goat-fucker of Alexandria, swineherd of Greater and Lesser Egypt, pig of Armenia, Podolian thief, catamite of Tartary, hangman of Kamyanets, and fool of all the world and underworld, an idiot before God, grandson of the Serpent, and the crick in our dick. Pig's snout, mare's arse, slaughterhouse cur, unchristened brow, screw your own mother!

So the Zaporozhians declare, you lowlife. You won't even be herding pigs for the Christians. Now we'll conclude, for we don't know the date and don't own a calendar; the moon's in the sky, the year with the Lord, the day's the same over here as it is over there; for this kiss our arse!

- Koshovyi Otaman Ivan Sirko, with the whole Zaporozhian Host.
