Glad they are doing this. Regardless of how much people like Steam, some of their practices are downright horrible and I'm glad someone finally stood up in the EU against that. In the end us consumers will be benefited.

Enjoying TL2 a lot so far. Word of advice, choose Hard or higher for difficulty. Normal's way too easy.

Just when you thought publishers couldn't get more disgusting this happens.

This is why they are merrily heading towards the crash and don't care to even rectify their heading. And when it happens I can happily say good fucking riddance.

Capcom's support for the PC has improved greatly since RE4 but they don't seem willing to go all the way. They need to drop GFWL and release PC versions at the same time as the console versions.

It did improve, but only until SSFIVAE where their ports went sharply down in quality. SSFIVAE and SFxT had and still have so many PC specific issues that I'm surprised anyone is still willing to give them a chance when it comes to porting to PC.

Damn it, so many deviations of the original story and all the other writings of Tolkien about the Hobbit. Sigh.

First stellar review for T2 comes out.

And I'm having quite some fun in Black Mesa. It's easy to forget that HL1 was one of the best survival games out there and Black Mesa nails that aspect of the game.

How far back are we going with this stuff? What's next, a Zaxxon 2 Kickstarter? The Last Ninja? Robin to the Rescue? PONG???

I would throw money at a The Last Ninja remake.

Well, after T2 release I guess it's safe to say D3 will hold a lot less players than what it already is which, if rumors are any true, aren't that many to begin with given the series.

This game is going to make or break Bioware. To be honest I bet on the latter since I don't believe DA3 will be on the level of DA:O. I expect something a bit better than DA2 but still a very underwhelming RPG.

I have a feeling that with Wasteland 2, Shadowrun and Project Eternity, Bioware as a house is about to be railroaded completely out of the industry.

And now all I have to know is which button I have to press for awesome to happen.

So great to see FTL there, and it only released Friday, meaning it only had 3 days of release while the other titles were on release or pre-order the whole week. Glad it's doing so great, this game deserves all success and then more.

Wonder how many big dev houses are following this and feeling tempted to follow this line of business and go kickstarter on their next project.

FTL is also on GOG. I'd rather support GOG (drm free) than Steamware.

Then you should buy directly from the devs which gives the DRM-free file plus a Steam key and all the money goes to the devs.

God damn I still can't stop playing this. Holy hell is this game addictive.

It's also Steam's #10 most played game right now and #1 on the Top Seller's list. Quite a feat for such a small game.

Am I the only one that finds Obsidian using Kickstarter to be a bit repugnant? They're an established developer - they should be going to a publisher and doing it right, not hitting up gamers for money before they've even begun. It's like a millionaire panhandling.

I'm sure that if you put them in touch with a publisher who will fund their PC-only, turn-based, party-based, isometric RPG, they will be HAPPY to scrap the Kickstarter and do it the old-fashioned way.

Go ahead and make some calls. We'll wait.

This.

Me, I hope more big devs go this way and say fuck off to publishers. Obsidian going this way is actually pretty big and I wonder if some publishers are now realizing the potential of big dev houses going to kickstarter and probably being more successful there, in terms of delivering game quality and in terms of sales after release.

I rather have an awesome game with good production then an awesome production but a mediocre game.

Fwooosh, the sound of my money disappearing from my wallet!

This is the first big developer house to turn to kickstarter. Could this be the start of something amazing, big dev houses ditching publishers and risking on kickstarter? One can hope.

Good for them. I'm already looking forward to their next game.. some kind of pig machine or something? What's it called? Anyways, I saw the trailer and it looks pretty creepy.

A machine for pigs.

most ships unlock if you do some missions or some very specific stuff.

I believe ya, but when I entered the 5th zone it was basically like "You made it to the 5th zone, you've unlocked the Engie ship!" and an achievement popped up too.

Yeah, the engie ship is the easiest to unlock since you only need to reach the 5th sector. Most of the other ships are only obtained by doing specific quests successfully.

Looking forward to this one. This has the potential to become one of the most deep strategy games of the decade with a hell of a theme.
