GMG emailed my POE key today and it's pre-loaded in STEAM already. I would have bought it through GoG but it was only $33 on GMG yesterday so I pulled the trigger...

Origin is being ddos'd or something since the download rate for the patch is slower on my cable modem than a 56k modem from 20 years ago:

It's easy to take the quick STEAM downloads for granted.

Yeah I have to resist buying since I know I don't have the time to play it anytime soon. I will definitely buy it eventually though.

Just played the first level in Outlaws. The music for the game is ripped to .ogg files and plays just like the original. Also, they use dosbox with glide baked in since I saw the 3dfx logo when it started. I didn't test multiplayer but it allowed for direct connections from what I could tell.

Hell yeah! I hope the soundtrack is included with Outlaws since it was one of the best and played from Cd.

It's the top seller on STEAM right now and after watching some twitch streamers who got pre-release builds I can see why. I'll probably pick it up on a sale (summer maybe?) down the road.

I would love to learn Unreal Engine but just don't have the time unfortunately. Guess I'll stick to derping around with haxeflixel making trying to make 2d games.

This is long overdue. I hope the gold sellers go out of business but I doubt it.

I've posted this in comments here before but I interviewed with LucasArts in 97 for a job as a level designer after I made a multiplayer level (rattlesnake ravine) for Outlaws, a game which Stinnet was also involved with. Stinnet emailed me himself and offered to fly me out to interview based only on playing that level online.

I remember meeting Stinnet and the level designers for Outlaws. A lot of them had architectural backgrounds if I remember. They were all working on Jedi Knight 2 so I got to see some of that before it was released. It was a great time even though I didn't get the job.

That's the price for buying DRM baked in I guess. The same thing could happen if Valve decided to shut down STEAM, however unlikely that would be.

GalCiv3 worth buying?

And Blue, GalCiv3 is 50% off not 75% which GalCiv1&2 are. Never mind I didn't read the "up to"

Bought Hand of Fate (not on the list.. yet) on Friday. Great game. Combat isn't much, but the rest of the game is really great.

Yeah I saw TotalBiscuit's review of Hand of Fate and it looks good, especially if they add more DLC down the line to be able to dual wield, etc. I can wait to pick it up in a sale though.

I burned out on WoD a little after two months. I'll probably be back at some point to level an alt or something...or maybe as said earlier in this thread I'll just play on a private server to scratch the WoW itch...

I bought the Sega deal on Amazon and just got a promotional email for a free $1 mp3 credit as well. So it's even a better deal lol!

Your purchase or rental of a qualifying Digital Video Game has earned you a $1 Amazon MP3 credit. The credit has been automatically applied to our account and is good toward the purchase of any album or track from the Amazon MP3 store. Visit http://www.amazon.com/mp3 on your web browser, iPhone, or iPod touch, open the music tab on your Kindle Fire, or open the Amazon MP3 app for Android and begin shopping. Your credit will be applied to your purchase(s) until you have used the full $1 value or until the code expires on March 31, 2015.

I can't say I really care for the unlock stuff they've done in the game though.

I just started running the Pepperidge Farm map with the Autohotkey script so you can leave it on over night, while at work, etc and get home to collect all your bulletins/commanders. Works alright, still dislike the whole system though.

Reddit has a post showing some bits added to the game files in the Feb 4 patch that suggest we're gonna have customizable commanders soon, possibly along with an in-game currency..

Wow, thanks for this tidbit. Any desire to purchase this game is gone now. I'm not a big RTS fan anyway but I did enjoy COH1 when it came out. Grinding for unlockables is not my kind of game (well besides my addiction to WoW for a few months every new expac..).

Guess I've been lucky with Chase. It has two factor in as much as it verifies your browser once with two factor and stores a cookie on the machine so it's not necessary every login. I don't think their app does though, unless I did it when it was first installed and forgot.

I found some people giving praise to uBlock, it's suppose to be extremely light on the memory footprint.

I'm using Adguard on my Android tablet with great success

Yeah I've been using uBlock since I saw it on Hackernews a few weeks ago and I haven't had any problems so far.
