Anyone ever deal with Win 7 and upgrading hardware? Apparently it's some kind of drm nonsense. I need to change my motherboard and RAM, so I'm a bit concerned.

I like the "gritty" feel of "The Expanse". I think they did a pretty good job of showing what the early days of intra-solar expansion might be like. Politics, greed, and prejudice isn't going anywhere anytime soon...
The origin story is another cool thing about The Expanse. One of the main reasons they have so much lore is it was originally developed to be a mmog, iirc.

PSA: If you have not seen Stranger Things, you are missing something special.


Yeah, October is a long way off. I think that and Westworld were easily my favorites of last year.
Liked both those, also Travelers, Lucifer, The Expanse, Preacher and Magicians.

I missed the Snow Hell day, damn hope Gunner was keeping his Kegger full!

Still haven't seen John Wick 2 yet, so no spoilers please (i.e. don't tell me if he shoots anyone or if he's no kill ghosting it.)!

I decided to watch John Wick and Shoot Em Up, together. I always thought Shoot Em Up was a better, even though I liked John Wick a lot. The thing that really gets me is something like Taken did better than Shoot Em Up. The actors, story, action and humor was better in every way. Clive is a extremely good actor and was originally up for Bond at the same time as Daniel. Anyway, my rant for the day! Paperbag

Hump Day Bundle

Never heard of any of those games. Anything good?
I'm only familiar with White Gold. I'll probably also hang on to Tyrfing Cycle, Alchemist and TurnOn, then trade the rest.

The FPS is White Gold, if your adventurous and play foreign indie games. It's one of the games Wesp makes an Unofficial Patch for, but it requires a bit of work. It's considered the sequel to Boiling Point Road to Hell. In case you know the name, for good or bad.

Just for reference it's a Russian take on Far Cry style of game. It's a bit more like Just Cause in that you can steal planes, helicopters and tanks. No crazy physics though, well unless it's a bug.

That seems based on delusional narcissism. I.e. their game is so awesome everyone has to have it now. So if they prolong the cracks, people are like drug addicts and will stop at nothing. Not only to play their game but also do anything to get the money if they can't steal it.

I'm not saying these developers aren't talented or there aren't good games in there somewhere. It's just whoever is making these design decisions is clearly out of touch, endangering the longevity and viability of the franchise.

They have walked all over these IPs, Deus Ex and Theif with hubris and bad decision after bad.

What is wrong with how they've handled Deus Ex? Human Revolution and Mankind Divided had some story issues but other than that were excellent games. I think my only real rub with them is the constant loads between areas due to console limitations.
There was a huge uproar about how they handled both HR and Thief. They were both made by the same company and iirc both teams are in the same building. They focused on console designs for starters, press button to win. Secondly, even Ion Storm was smart enough to know stories need to contain empowered women and not just as sideline characters. These are the same people who didn't allow Jumping in Thief. In reality, nothing else should need to be said, after that absurdity. This doesn't even cover the Boss fights, where they forced you to kill. Or the fact they went back adding dlc breaking continuity in HR. I also mentioned lack of modding in a previous post, but that's just the tip of the berg.

Oh also, do you remember their reasoning for not allowing jumping in Thief, it was just too much trouble to design. Yousaidwhat

I mean, they've already done a battleship movie, so the bar hasn't so much as been set low, but just laid on the floor, and begged for people to step over.
Lmao, I'm soooo glad, I didn't know about it. Think I would cringe for the poor actor, who had to say "you sank my battleship!". Paperbag

I can't really disagree with that. I didn't think the ending to the most recent was horrible, but it was clearly lacking. And if they walk away now, for a break? That's a hell of a bridge to burn...
I probably shouldn't be posting in this thread, since I haven't played MD. Thanks for not spoiling, the ending. It's too bad from your tone, you'd think after HR, sticking the ending would be important.

Whoever has been leading Thief and DX should be canned, they clearly don't understand or care about the franchise's future. They seemingly eliminated 30% of their audience (females) and another 20% PC gamers (might not apply to MD), with just 2 bad decisions. Probably killed 40% of their sales and longevity due to no modding.
