News Comments > Shadwen Released

I wonder if it improved at all since the first gameplay release they revealed. That was horrendously bad and made me question how the hell it was from the same company as Trine.

Will have to check out the video above later. At work.

The last few years Steam Sales have been kinda crappy. Games have been cheaper elsewhere.
Besides I have so many games I got no time to play I am not aching to buy anything new atm.

This pretty much. Also, less and less time.

And less energy to learn something new. When I sit down for an hour of gaming at night, I find myself playing old favs as opposed to spending the effort to learn something new.

Over saturated market.

While I have disposable income these days, I still can't justify the high prices at times when I have other priorities to pay for such as I don't know... RENT, car payment, student loan, electric, phone, FOOD, etc. It makes it hard at times to include full priced games, but it's what I enjoy. Gaming. Does that mean I should be excluded because I can't afford to pay full price at times?

I wasn't aware we were all entitled to the luxury items that we want regardless of our ability to pay. I should try that tactic when I replace my car in a few years and see if I can leverage my used Corolla budget to get a new Porsche.


Were not talking about jacking a Porsche here. Paying 60 vs paying let's say 20 or 30 is a big difference when you see what you can buy at a lower income with that 30 or 40 your saving. Food, gas, a utility bill.

Some people at the higher bracket would never understand that because they never had to deal with it and feel nobody lives like that.

When you buy your games on these shady sites with huge discounts, you have to understand that you're shooting yourself in the foot. The developers get less money per sale and this affects the frequency and quality of games of that type. Vote with your wallet. Encourage the devs and games you like... I understand that these publishers aren't panhandlers and that you're not rich, but you're still affecting the game industry.

The developer can kiss my ass. I have no sympathy for them when they take short cuts on games and give you a half assed game that's last around 5 to 6 hours. Sorry but you are barking up the wrong tree here pal.

Well. You're reasoning in this case is utter bullshit because this particular game seems like the developers really gave what the gaming public wanted from a DOOM game. so saying "screw the devs" buys you no clout in here.

However, I do frequent the grey market, because if you think that the developer is getting less money because of the grey market, I'd first look at their publisher's take-home, their online distributor's take-home, before you look at 30% reduced revenue from a grey market site.

If you really been heartwrenched about not giving devs a proper cut, just mail them a cheque directly for the full price of the game, it will be 20x more effective than buying on Steam. I used to pirate a lot of games when I was uber poor, and always felt shitty about it, it's nice now that I have some disposable income sometimes that there's a way I can still buy games legitimately without putting me in the poor house. fucking $79.99 CAD, with tax in my province it's about $93 for a fucking game. If grey market sites didn't exist, I highly doubt any singleplayer game would ever get a dime from me.

lol, I feel this guy.

I used to pirate back in the day but it was for the reason being that I simply had no money. Now that I do, I never pirate, however paying full price is even a burden these days. You almost need price brackets just for gaming because you have your "child" gamers, "rich adult gamers" and "poor/midclass adult gamers" that find it hard to put out the extra $$$.

EA are scummy. Anything they give out for free should not be considered a huge act of generosity but rather them letting go of "junk" or a way of advertising a new product that will bring them more $$$.

You guys want a true Doom feeling sequel, grab yourself a FREE copy of Brutal Doom (provided you have one of the older Doom games on Steam), and enjoy.
It's so damn fast, fluid, gory as hell, and well, it's DOOM. Incredibly addicting due to the modern updated FPS controls and speed at which you mow down hordes of Demons.
If they charged for it, I would of happily paid.

Hmmm, while it's not terrible, it's a sure bargain bin game. Couldn't see myself paying anywhere near full cost on it.

He mentioned how the environments resemble almost like a skate park or "arena" to make the combat more fun. I noticed that immediately and didn't actually dig it as it doesn't feel as authentic of an environment as it's specifically designed for a battle.

Well, with Doom 3, my expectations were in the toilet, not much worse this could of been. Like I said, bargain bin.

News Comments > Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition Launches
12. Re: Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition Launches Apr 28, 2016, 20:57 Xero
 
Ok, I already jumped on this. When I watched the trailer and saw all the little new stuff, I figure, why the hell not. I had a blast and wish there was more before it ended and this just might fit the bill. 5 dolla upgrade.

The dude that says over hyped indie garbage is out his mind. With that said, if he's referring to everyone talking about how sad the game is, at least the intro, maybe he's right on the overhyped part. Didn't think it was all that sad to make you cry, however the music is very saddening at times yet very relaxing. It's like the perfect mix to go with the visuals.
Hear this song to get an idea - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wnB4mFmlaCM
That's during the game as your ducking dodging, and attacking back, lol. Very mellow.

Will buy!
Needed a reason to play this game through again and this is it. I loved the hell out of this game and believe it or not, beat it using mouse and keyboard, never a controller. The controls were very responsive and made it actually easy to manage even on keyboard.
From the art direction to the sound effects and music. Everything worked here. I'm actually hoping for a sequel in the near future.

Sounds awesome. I loved the original. Epic story with an awesome ending. Didn't get into the second one all that much as I would have liked to, however it had some awesome shoot out moments.
Looking forward to this one.

News Comments > DOOM Open Beta Extended
4. Re: DOOM Open Beta Extended Apr 18, 2016, 00:00 Xero
 
Wow, lol, read the reviews on Steam. It's getting destroyed. But I also noticed, nearly all the negative reviews have less than an hour of game time... I mean, you would imagine that you would have to spend at least minimal an hour to get an idea of the game. Your telling me in under an hour which includes the time spent in the game menus/etc. they can fully judge the game?

I did notice also though, negative reviews with 3-4hrs on record, so it does seem to be just...BAD.

Well it was no harm in joining the group and viewing the pages it required to receive the key so I'll try it and if I don't like it, quick uninstall. It's not like you couldn't immediately leave the group after

Considering the Geforce Experience tool can auto update a driver and all you got to do is hit install when it prompts that it's ready, I'd say, this is quite dangerous.
It's like Nvidia sent out a bomb to blow up people's rigs without anyone aware of the potential.

I play CS GO at least one competitive match a day minimal so I'd say I'm fairly active, considering I used to be glued to the damn game pre CSGO. With that said, unfortunately there are tons of better players at this point because CS has gone through so many iterations, people got their skills early on.

I've played plenty of matches were my teammates are whiny biatches just because they keep dying when they literally suck balls, our opponents are legit better, and all I hear are whiny hack rants. It's so lame, and ultimately that is what kills the experience because someone can't wrap their head around losing to a better player.
