I had no motivation whatsoever to continue playing THIEF. Somehow I did, and finished it too, but it was one big forgettable "blegh" the whole way through. Btw, I tried so. fucking. hard. to like it, too.

The Wolf Among Us is on sale and I'm thinking about picking it up but I have a concern. I've heard from several people that there likely won't be a season 2 since Telltales other teams are on other projects and it didn't sell very well. Is it relatively self contained or does it lack any form of closure? I don't want to have it end on a big cliff hanger then never get to find out what happens.

Shite! I just bought the game for 5,75 euros under the assumption that season 2 would be on the way -- somehow I just assumed this game was selling well. A game without closure feels like a stab in the kidneys so here's for hoping it's self contained -_-

keep hearing good stuff about wolfenstein so i guess ima have to play it

It's worth picking up for sure. The gameplay is solid if still pretty standard stuff, but the story is engaging and well-told.

I just impulse bought it because I was bored and it was $25 on a Steam sale at the beginning of the summer, and it wound up being one of the best games I played this year.

I agree completely. It's a solid game and finally an FPS that doesn't try to be more than what it is.

Hoping for big sales on:
FC4
Project Zomboid
Dead Rising 3
All AC games
The Lone Dark
This War of Mine
Road Redemption
Shadow of Mordor
Rust
Life is Feudal

Picked up Shadow of Mordor for $26 through GMG plus the front page code just now. It was on my "buy at $20" list, and I figure that was close enough.

SoM is my biggest disappointment of the year by leagues. Every time I'm reminded of the game, my wallet does a cry of regret and sorrow. It's killing orcs and collecting useless collectables. Just a horrible game imo.

Biggest surprises of the year:

Dragon Age Inquisition
Risen 3
Lords of the Fallen

In that order.

Been watching that first gameplay trailer again. This really is a tribute to Postal You begin exactly the same as in Postal -- facing east, at the front door of your home.

Can't help but think this game looks good and like fun. It simply is a Postal remake. I cannot believe the (negative) attention this game receives. It's like one person made some noise and the rest decided to keep on screaming. Kinda like the "Zwarte Piet" bullshit here in The Netherlands.

Well, no shit they delayed the game

I wonder how they will integrate this second character thing. If it will be like GTA V, where you can hit a button and the map will zoom out and zoom back in at the other character... That'd be sick. Or they'd have it like a DLC thing in the main menu, where its a seperate save file with a little stand-alone campaign. Doubt it. Or maybe it'd be mandatory, forcing you to play her at certain parts in the story. That would kinda suck and ruin immersion at least for me.

I'd like to play this game. Shooting a rocket into a tupperware convention full of mommies (with babies!) or setting a grocery store on fire (please have a mechanism in place that makes me able to lock/block exits!). I'd just love to do that and I would have hoped I could play it on my favourite platform (STEAM) and that I'd get the "No Parent Material" and "You're Out of Milk!?" achievements in the process.

Not kidding. That's one of the reasons I'm pissed they banned this game. So screw anyone who agrees with STEAM's hypocracy. I could have had so much fun while you would feel just the same whether it was greenlit or not. Ffs.

No matter how good games like Wasteland 2 and Divinity Original Sin are, they are fillers to me. Not remotely as good as the stuff like Dragon Age, The Witcher, Mass Effect, etc. There's a reason developing the latter games takes and costs more. I feel that reason every damn minute playing, forgotten that I'm still on Earth.

That's because your taste is shallow, you admitted it already. You want visuals and thin gameplay over depth and complexity, that's fine. It's not a bad thing because everyone has different taste so whatever. I like plenty of trashy movies and books. No one cares until you start acting foolish about it and make ridiculous comparisons.

Give the Wasteland 2 devs 50 million to make a game like Bioware then I'm sure they will produce some fabulous spectacle to dazzle you.

"That's because your taste is shallow". *sigh* Such nonsense. Like I implied earlier, if that was the case I wouldn't enjoy books as much. It's about the way a story is told, really (if a game is devoid of one, like most sims for example, I don't touch them to begin with). For me, games like Wasteland and Divinity do have a story but its emphesis is mostly on combat and micromanagement. I don't see people play those type of games for the story (same goes for HoM&M for example). Then there's games who focus way more on the story and how it's told, and not just the story but a focus on the world the stoey occurs in. Those games would crumble to dust if the player wasn't motivated to find out more about the world and move on in the story. Those games are DA:I, The Witcher etc etc. That's what I meant to say with the jigsaw puzzle and reading a book comparison. I didn't mean to say one is worse than the other. A person can find joy in completing a jigsaw puzzle not because they desperately want to see the picture a complete jigsaw puzzle shows, but because of the act of just doing it. A person mostly doesn't read a book just for the act of reading, if you know what I mean. That's the difference. You can be both type of gamers but I'm mostly the book reading one, which is maybe why I have a hard time trying to understand all the complaints about the UI and gameplay in DA:I btw.

Wall of text, sorry. Smartphone.

Out of curiosity, have you actually played WL2 or D:OS? Neither game was as pretentious as Bioware's games but I thought their writing was interesting enough. Aside from the companions, I thought DA:I's writing was fairly mediocre. The story, characters and quests simply weren't as compelling as they were in DA:O. Also, Bioware's RPGs have a heavy emphasis on combat and micromanagement. They are all squad based and combat is often the only solution to any given problem.

I have played D:OS about 15 hours. Wasteland less because I realized sooner the game didnt have a hold on me whatsoever. I thought I loved D:OS until I realized I hadn't touched the game for 2 weeks without giving it a thought.

Honestly, I can't put my finger on it how it is DA, Risen 3 and older games like Neverwinter Nights win my complete heart while games like Wasteland 2 and D:OS leave me cold in the end. They just do. I'd have to chew on it for a while.

Btw, I agree with your complaints about DA:I. Verno's too (the main story is way too short compared to all the filler stuff). I do praise the game though. Highly. And I'd recommend it to anyone. If they made it a tad less open-world and focussed more on the main story... I'd have built a freaking pedestal for this game. In the middle of my living room. xD

I dont see GTA V banned from steam yet? I mean, squeezing titties, bringing strippers home to put a bullet in their vaginas, running around town shooting and burning people and running them over with tanks or punching whores to death to get your money back... THAT'S OK? Of course its OK because its a GAME! Hatred should be handled the same way. But hey, GTA V will make big money and that's where morals get grey! Fucking hypocrites.

This us censorship. Period. The people themselves should decide whether it's worth their money or not. "Steam has the right to--" Blablablabla yes Steam has the right to ban it from its store. But because it basically has the monopoly, it's worth it to get loud when it starts to make decisions for us. You know, like a government dictatorship, since there's only one.

Seen the movie Rampage? I thought it was fun.

Not in favor of gov't censorship, but totally happy if these assholes went out of business. This game is nihilistic and pointless. I, too, wonder how all this will turn out.

Who cares if its nihilistic and pointless. It's a game. As long as there is no proof (or is there?) that these are neo-nazis, I wish these guys the best of luck with this game. I didnt mind lobbing a molotov cocktail or two into a crowd of civilians in Postal and would like to do so again with PhysX xP

My god Steam is becoming a fucking mess. Indie & early-access & Free To Play garbage everywhere I look. I personally don't upgrade my PC for 1200,- every 3 years to play that weird arcady shite. Immersion, man. Some quality RPG stuff. No sidescrollers or random generating maps crap. Hate to see this becoming the new PC thang.

/rage
(seriously, open your Steam app on your smartphone right now and feel where I'm coming from)

83 hours into DA:I and still got 3 huge areas to explore. Loving it. Can't wait for The Witcher 3 either. Luckily not all devs resort to the low-effort-big-cash-in shite Steam is swamped with these days.

Weird. I feel like you're me. Same feeling about Steam and I'm at the same point in DA:I as you and loving it. Weird.

Somehow read over this post last night (it was 4AM :P). Feels good to see I'm not the only one who feels this way about Steam! Funny how I'm stepping on people's toes here, obviously. Obviously, we can all have our opinions as long as it's not in conflict with others.

I just hate these half-arsed, simple games -- and for the record, I'm comparing it to stuff like DA:I, The Witcher, Wolfenstein, Skyrim etc. There's PC gamers here who act like this and that relatively simple indie-game is their wet dream come true, yet try their hardest to bitch about everything a big fish releases simply because it "can take the beating" (learned that much from earlier threads). Silly. There's this little and maybe irrational fear inside me other devs will catch wind of this thang going on, and maybe in a few years all we have is Wastelands, Dungeon Defenders and side-scrolling survival sims. While all these kinda games are fun in their own way, there's one thing they can't deliver and that's immersion, which is why they leave me as cold as ice.

The fact that you consider Wasteland 2 "simple" or "half-arsed" is downright absurd. There's nothing simple about it. It's a 80+ hour CRPG with tons of meaningful choices. Having completed both it and DA:I, I can safely say that the quest design in Wasteland 2 was way more interesting than the quest design in DA:I.

No, the only reason you'd ever classify Wasteland 2 as simple or half-arsed is because of its presentation. If the only thing you care about is presentation, no wonder people are offended by your comments. They come across as incredibly ignorant and shallow.

The question is simple: Do the story and situations in Wasteland 2 move you as much as the stuff in Mass Effect and Dragon Age did? I highly doubt it. Being emotionally involved, that's the immersion I need. Do the latter games only immerse in that fashion because of the visuals? Well, because I can get as emotionally immersed into a book as I would in said games, it doesn't have to be the case.

No matter how good games like Wasteland 2 and Divinity Original Sin are, they are fillers to me. Not remotely as good as the stuff like Dragon Age, The Witcher, Mass Effect, etc. There's a reason developing the latter games takes and costs more.

i understand that you can't risk 50 million dollars on a new ip that might flop, but it's because of that type of risk-aversion that steam is filled with all the indy stuff.


A scary truth. Not scary to everyone, sure. Many people love all the kind of different simple shit that's getting released almost daily and that's completely fine. For gamers like me, who really only play games for immersion, it's a big facepalm situation. [Most of the indie shite you see the moment you open the steam store, whatever the genre] is getting more popular every day, yet I've tried enough to know immersion isn't their selling point. Ironically, if I'd ever touch my dusty PS3, it would be to play a game like most of said shite. I don't say it should all disappear. I just feel that the crap and non-crap ratio was less horrible in the past.


By "immersion," I assume you mean "big-budget presentation." Immersion isn't limited to a game's presentation. Gameplay is a huge factor as well. Dwarf Fortress is a perfect example of that. Horrible presentation but once you get into the actual gameplay, you're immersed as can be. Conversely, a game like CoD has a great presentation but the gameplay is so vapid and forgettable that it's essentially impossible to become immersed in the experience.

As for the "crap and non-crap ratio," it wasn't less horrible in the past. There were just as many shitty games out there, they just weren't on Steam. However, there were also a lot of great games that weren't on Steam either. It's pretty easy to ignore games you don't care about. I'd rather have that option than miss out on games worth my attention.

What you are talking about is immersion for sure, but not the kind of immersion I'm talking about. I think it's comparable with doing a jigsaw puzzle and reading a good book. Dwarf Fortress gives a form of immersion similar to doing a jigzaw puzzle while The Witcher gives a form of immersion similar to reading a good book. I only care for the latter form. It's literally the one and only reason I play games.

It's pretty easy to ignore games you don't care about [on Steam].

For gamers like me, it's honestly not that easy anymore.
