Baldur's Gate 2 is one of my all time favorite games, across all genres. I'm almost done with my latest BG1EE playthrough, BG2EE is already installed and modded up, ready to go with my imported character. I keep getting drawn back, in between super AAA 3D eye candy, to that 2d (although BGEE versions technically have 3D models now) party based RPG. I loved Pillars of Eternity 1 and 2, Divinity: Original Sin 1 and 2, NWN, Icewind Dale series, Planes of Torment, Tides of Numenaria, Wasteland 2 reboot, etc. etc. but I have probably done about 6-7 complete playthroughs of BG2, vanilla and with mods, and probably had a half dozen more started but interrupted by HD death or computer wipes/upgrades, or other mishaps.
BG2 was also my first introduction to the D&D/AD&D style ruleset, I'm somewhat ashamed to say.

Give me another word for it and I shall use it I called it a TOS violation originally, but I admit that no customer was directly scammed. I just can't think of a better word for it.
Also this game has, literally, the discussion topic of "This game is a scam" and "Report this dev for TOS violation" (which you can't by the way, report hasn't got a TOS reason to select) shown in the community hub overview.. I think steam is just backhand trolling there but it's quite funny ,p

I really don't understand the gripe about not having reviews or forums. They already integrate with and show review scores from various third-party sources. It seems to me a third-party source for reviews will always be better than whatever is trying to sell me a product. Also, aren't there like hundreds of other forums and review sites if people really want to post them?

Come to think of it, a space sim with sub style warfare would be both accurate and awesome.

"Windows 95 is 25 years old today"
The beginning of the Start menu era.
I think it tool like 5 major versions of the OS before they removed the word "Start" from the menu button and changed it to the Windows icon (Windows Vista?).
But even to this day (and after they removed the menu in Windows 8), we all still call it the Start menu. ;)

"Click on Start..."

As for shutting down, I just tell people to press the power button on the case. Windows 10 moved the shutdown action to the "power" submenu (oops, "⏻" - no text allowed), so it's too much to try and walk people through if you're not standing next to them to say "click that button, then that button, then "shutdown".

This has been going on for years now, and still I am amazed at the number of people here that are totally ignorant of how distribution and retail operates in the real world. Taking at least 30% (or marking up the wholesale price by 30% with the retailer keeping the profit) is pretty much standard for retail world wide. People just seem to have no clue what it takes to run a retail operation bricks and mortar or online.

For a solid portion of EGS titles (over half the titles I've grabbed through the weekly freebies), the EGS launcher can be ignored after installation.

I think it's obvious that they don't have the department that handles these things at other companies. Their Facebook pages have been abandoned, their website is a hiring portal and nothing else, they've never had an Instagram, and their Twitter account - about half a year old - might be an automated bot that just barely sends out announcements of updates and events for Alyx, Dota and Artifact. I think Gabe gave up social media half a decade ago. None of this says to me that there's a room of white guys trying to tiptoe around the big social issues of the day.
