Marketing ploy or good game?

Marketing ploy for sure.

Actually, I'm hearing the opposite. A bunch of friends are playing, and all of them are saying it's really, really good.

It can be both good and a marketing ploy. It's basically a Thing now that when you launch a new MMO you have to do a press release where you say how the game is practically too popular for its own good, and apologize profusely for how popular the game is, and how they're scrambling to meet this spectacular popularity, did we mention how popular the game is maybe you'd want to give it try too?

On the development side, a free-to-play game lowers the risk involved in making a game. A developer is able to release a high quality game that represents a fraction of the total vision, and if players think it is fun and justify it by spending money, the developer can continue to improve the game for months or years on end. If the game does not find success in the marketplace, it is far better to release a game and fail after a year of work than it is to fail after six years of blood, sweat and tears.

That sounds really defeatist somehow. "We're probably going to fail anyway so why try so hard". If you're just throwing something half-baked out there with the hope that it'll somehow do so well that you can evolve it into a proper quality game, it likely won't. Just make the best thing you can and try to have some faith in it.

Edit: Kotaku's link-baiting attempt at controversy worked again, but I have an adblocker so the last laugh's on them Smug

I ditched my physics degree a decade ago so I'm likely out of date, not to mention dumber than I was back then, but as I recall dark energy is hypothesized to be a constant property of empty space and to have negative pressure, so it acts against gravity. As space expands, the density of regular matter (which familiarly likes to clump together and so slows down the expansion of the universe) gets smaller, while the density of dark energy, as an inherent property of space, stays constant. The end result is that the larger the universe gets, the less gravity can act against the negative pressure of dark energy, so the expansion gets ever faster.

Or something along those lines.

No I meant that the inflation can't happen imo unless a force of nature faster than light pushes it. If it were a force slower than light, growing inflation would reduce speeds of inflation over time..

Basically I am saying that I don't understand how the universe can expand ever faster without a force pushing at the outer boundaries at a (increasingly) faster than light speed. If it were at just 99.99999% of light-speed, inflation would slow down, and not speed up. At light-speed inflation would be linear... so yeah.. why?

No kidding. Back in 2000 when he first became president, I was happily surprised that Russia actually managed to get a sane leader, what with the other options having been Zhirinovsky and going crazier from there, but turns out some sociopaths really are just better at hiding it than others. Here's his latest crusade (possibly NSFW, depending on how your workplace feels about brutal violence).

I wasn't going to buy it on PC as I really liked Demons Soul on PS3 and I have already seen how bad Dark Souls PC port was at release.

Well it's a bad port in the sense that it's not really even much of a port as much as it was just dumped on the PC as is, but that still means the PC version is actually the best version as long as you have a fast enough computer and a gamepad. It's exactly the same, except you have higher resolutions, sharper textures, post processing and all that stuff with the user-made fixes. Getting GfWL working may take some effort though.

It does get extremely grindy, though, as fun as it is for a while. Can't imagine ever being bored enough to actually finish it.

That's a whole lot of Might & Magic for a few dollars. I never played any of them back in the day, so time to fix that. Apparently IV (Clouds of Xeen) is the best place to start, unless you want to go super-retro.

Each of the games is apparently the most amazing game in the world. How can anyone write that many superlatives without starting to feel self-conscious? Calm down Jason!

$2000-3000 for a gaming PC? rly Yerli? I think my desktop was around $500 a couple years ago, and it still runs everything. I suppose the purported high cost of PC gaming is one of the myths that keep console gamers from feeling like chumps, so it lives on.

This is all very confusing, since Strygatsky never owned the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. IP. They'd have to buy that one from Sergey Grigorovych. If it was Roadside Picnic rights I'd understand, but surely that's quite a different thing even if S. is heavily inspired by it.

No comment?

They seem to be getting close to scraping the bottom of the barrel. I mean no offense to those devs, but they seem to increasingly come up with games I have no interest in...


I don't know, this is the first bundle I've felt like buying for ages. It's worth it for Super Amazing Wagon Adventure alone! Here's some words on that for those who don't know what that is (likely most people).

Shattered Horizon is of course always nice to have for a couple of pennies too. And Analogue seems interesting; I liked Digital at least.

$15?! Why? When I can steal it for free!!! I'd hate for us to make liars of Ubisoft so I hope no one if planning on paying for this!


Cutter, with hard work like yours...we can push the rate to 97%!


Ah, a true visionary!
