The Outlast and Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs coming out in the next 2 weeks. These will be a memorable couple of weeks for horror lovers.

News Comments > Steve Ballmer to Retire

This was more than likely a move forced by the shareholders. The failing sales of Win8 and their tablet, plus all the debacle of the Xbone and the constant 180s have forced them to finally retire this clown.

Now I'm curious to know who will replace him.

News Comments > EA Offering Origin Game Guarantees
34. Re: EA Offering Origin Game Guarantees Aug 20, 2013, 11:46 ASeven
 
As much hate EA gets, deservedly, this is a very good step in amping up the competition against Steam. You don't go against Steam with shitty exclusives, you go against steam by offering better services and this is a good example of it.

Not that it will make Origin any more popular but I'm glad competition for Steam is ramping up at last. Competition is always good.

News Comments > No GFWL for Batman: Arkham Origins - GFWL & AOE Online Ending Next Year?
31. Re: No GFWL for Batman: Arkham Origins - GFWL & AOE Online Ending Next Year? Aug 20, 2013, 08:43 ASeven
 
This is one of the very rare cases where piracy becomes a viable alternative to play the game you've paid for. I'm sure not all devs will patch GFWL out of their games and it's very likely that many games will become unsupported and unplayable.

MS has fucked up GFWL since day 1 and not even in closing down their service can they do anything right. Still, at least GFWL will be permanently gone so there's that.

Thought so when the trailer for this showed the Steam logo instead of the GFWL one.

Capcom dropping GFWL is huge since I believe they were the biggest publishers to exclusively use GFLW on all its games.

Papers Please has become my top game of this year. The game is just amazing, it's one of those one of a kind games. Everyone should do a favor to themselves and get the game, it's truly awesome.

Right now this is more of a fun physics/collision sandbox. If they add a demolition derby mode to this, however, the game will turn into an instant classic for the ages. This game right now has the best collision and damage physics I've ever seen in any game or program.

The fun part is, pirates have already cracked this game 100% with the use of a local server. So even the DRM was defeated in the end. Pathetic.

Valve was super cool about it and is letting us continue to work on our game and is also giving us the office.

Hey, here have an office! Nice.

And it sounds like they also said "Keep the project assets and game you were working on while we were paying you".

Reminds me of a similar story a month or so back...Valve told those folks (and the attorneys) they could take their project assets with them as well. Pretty cool. I am not sure most, if any, other companies would do that.

Indeed, this is pretty cool of their part.

I'm not an attorney myself, but I do work for a large law firm and I have a lot of legal experience because of this - my opinion after reading the developers post (and being a backer myself) is that the developers have been advised by their attorneys "keep your mouth shut until this is over".

You don't need a gag order from a judge. Human nature is to talk about problems, that's also a good way to open yourself up to further damage or to make a problem worse.

Fair enough, but it still seems weird though.

Yeah. Here's hoping for the best, they already had the foundation for the game built and their ideas were pretty solid for a zombie apocalypse survival game.

Those graphics are quite something. And I love the X series so this is a no brainer for me.

Backed this one, it had some great ideas and it was one of the KS projects I was really looking forward to. This update however leaves me uneasy about the future of the project and I am on the same mind as others that this may become a scam. I hope I'm wrong but this update raised a lot of red flags for me.

Fatshark has now a reputation of abandoning their games and making average multiplayer games. I wouldn't be too excited for this.

I can assure you the 360 version of Skyrim outsold the PC/digital versions by a HUGE margin and will remain that way forever. Combine it with the PS3 numbers and it's laughable to assume the PC will catch up.

Played and finished this twice back in the Amiga days, still holds a special place as one of the best RPGs I've ever played. A shame the remake turned out to be this bad, the game deserved better than this. If the patching turns the game into something more decent I'll think about buying this then.

Hopefully this will be the last time we ever hear of the douchetard.

Creston

Still waiting for your game, btw.

Why? I am interested to hear how that has anything to do with anything or what your intended point is. Is there a previous discussion that offers context to this?

I believe he is being, as that guy said, a "tosspot".

Come now, a better question would be when isn't he being a "tosspot"?

I was talking about Snapdad, not Creston. Creston is cool beans.
