Don't think login is required if you don't install experience, i.e. drivers only, correct?

As fucked up as it sounds, I enjoyed the flash sales and checking in, even for that insane deal at 2 in the morning...

I buy a lot more at gog now anyway...back to collecting the classics.

Yup, sorry RedEye9, I'm with Nin here. Flash sales forced people to participate to get good deals and was often a community event. Everyone knows the real reason Steam stopped was because of the return policy. If it's not now, soon be will internationally enforced, after the Australian legal decision.

At first it sounded like another pvp only game. After asking in the steam forums, sounds like servers don't even have to turn pvp on, yay!

At least now I can keep an eye on this, without wondering if it would be another rip off like h1z1, dayz or any of the other pvp only games trying to trick pve players just to get sales.

Do we need to play ME1 to understand ME2's story?
Ieeeeee...you what...never played ME! Faint

Unless you specifically have a reason not to play it, you really should. You can get a nice package on Steam with ME and ME II for under $8 during sales.

Even though it's consoley, it's got a pretty good story and acting. On the downside, it's frustrating to be forced to use a cover system and the gear modding is annoying. The only 'story dlc' for ME is free and ME II you get about 30% of the dlc in the package. You should defiantly avoid buying any extra dlc from ea/origins unless you've got a goose who lays golden eggs. Saying they are overpriced 6 years later, is saying the flu is a random sneeze. ea has been in full exploit mode, about ME II dlc for 6 damn years.

Gratz on their success, good to see a small team of experienced developers moving away from publishers.

It's more of a story/walking simulator to me, the choices don't mean much at all and has a poor ending. It's an interesting story, if your into that sort of thing. There's no real need to ever play it again, once you know what's going on. It's not like you can improve on your game experience.

The biggest Independent developer surprise hit, for me was Survivalist. Even though it's two years old, it was new to me and couldn't stop playing it. Lighter

Never played borderlands because it was gearbox. The only respect I've ever had for gearbox was from Opposing Force and Blue Force, which was all lost after halo.

Well Deus Ex is back up, after a sluggish looking release. Still no Dishonored 2, which it seems conflicting. I've seen good reviews and complaints. Personally finding out there is no real story anymore (if what I've read is true) seems a huge disappointment. I still keep trying to avoid spoilers for both games but not sure how much longer that's possible. Also first choice would be to wait till they remove the new drm, but we'll see.

World’s first solar road....
That's pretty ingenious, if all buildings and roads had solar panels, there would be no need for nuclear or coal and probably water diversions for hydroelectric. Massive job increases for education, design, installation and service, could sustain a whole country easily.

Ok, someone explain the logic behind this? The Witcher 3 GOTY edition is $30 while the DLC-less original release is still...$40? WTF?! That makes absolutely NO sense to me whatsoever.

I like deals and sales, who doesn't? But when you can't understand the logic behind some of the choices at times, it kinda makes the ol' credit card slink back in the wallet...

=-Rigs-=

This is what I have been saying - their pricing is all jacked up most of the time.
Think it was bethesda that started that crap, trying to get you to buy their game a second time, in goty form. Iirc, it was their super-amazing-genius business plan, after horse armor. Flamethrower

Guess Amazon gave up on video game sales.

News Comments > Vampyr Trailer
7. Re: Vampyr Trailer Dec 23, 2016, 22:07 Acleacius
 
Well Quinn, I live in a world where vampire lore as been around for at least 60 years. In this world which seems to be alien to you, vampires feed off blood. So in this world unknown to you, if you kill off your supply of blood, you die. This doesn't even begin to contend with the fact there is more than ONE vampire in the world. Also, feed as autokill is so ridiculous I'm not sure where to begin, maybe your world of kookoo land?

Agent-Zero I don't eat steak, duh? Which vampire lore has them eating steak? Are you from Quinn's magical world of cray cray? Zombie

I saw the original trailer released a couple of months ago. The big problems seem to be the Lore. Not to mention their previous game Life is Strange was so binary (i.e. final choice).

In this game afai can see, if you feed you kill. No matter your whether your playing good or evil. It seems a ridiculous, since vampires obviously need living healthy humans. Lore which kills every time you feed obviously destroys your food source, duh.

I do really enjoy the different art styles their games offer. Just they seriously need to spend more time on their writing or hire new ones. If they can't pull off the scenarios and general dialog, then it won't matter if they have a great story lines.

jacobvandy, thanks for offering the info. Not sure I understand, how do I link my account? Guess I'll try it, but not sure what Link My Steam Account means, if not give my info. Confused

Haha, I tried it and Steam is still dead, so I can't. Still don't know what info they want.

I was just going to ask if anyone could get through, seems the fine broke valve and they had to turn off the Steam Sale servers.

Thanks Mordecai Walfish, that makes sense. Still passing, I'm usually behind the curve, on these things. I didn't even get Steam till 2011 with Dead Island's release.

It just seems the more places that have multiple data the riskier. It's probably too late to worry about personal data protection, since it's gone to shit. I wouldn't put it passed world economic collapse in the next four years. It almost happened here in the US between 2005-2007. There was a push to privatize Social Security (a moron thought he had a mandate). If it would have passed, all that money would have been gambled into the Stock Exchange before 'The Collapse'. The economy of not only the US but almost every nation would would have collapsed.

The Long Dark is still in EA, but reviews are amazing. Is the game still getting constant support?
If you scroll down, where it says early access, the most recent update was Dec 20, 2016.

Personally I would go for Black Mesa first, but this does sound interesting for a cold simulator.
