News Comments > Steam Winter Sale

I dread steam sales now, cause the front page scroll is at least 1000 and takes 15 minutes minimum.

Saw a couple mention Amazon, did they have their holiday sale yet, I don't recall seeing it?

Yeah, I get your point. I just thought despite UBI flaws (not to mention forced third party login while on Steam), they do a pretty good job on open world. Their random discovery areas, base capture system, shooting mechanics and driving (cars, boats and heli) are all good. It's true they aren't the best at everything but usually the games are fun and solidly built. It would have been interesting to see their take on Post Apocalyptic setting. I don't think they would have any trouble competing with those 3 other companies.

It's hard to believe they went Primal instead of Post Apocalyptic! Slap

They are doing open world design pretty well and I could see them doing a much better job than Mad Max, Rage and not mention Fallout 4.

Oh, I thought GOG worked it's magic with DOSBox to get a pretty stable Daggerfall. Or it just could have been a wishful thinking, kind of daydream! Please

My understanding is that Daggerball was just a buggy buggy mess to start with. Can't fix that!
I bought it at release, and the major issue I remember was Sound Blaster incompatibility. Iirc it was one of the first to use the new SB tech. Also, wasn't there a patch or two to fix the broken quests. Since it's free, guess it really isn't as big of issue and it's probably the most stable version atm.

Yeah but are there more than three base gun models which do the same amount of damage regardless of your level?

If you're using guns in Dying Light, you're doing it wrong.

On a side note, I love how much post-release support Techland has given DL. It's surprising given that WB is the publisher and they have a pretty poor record of DLC and post-release support.
Support has been good, but the ability for the community to mod is still extremely weak compared to Fallout or Elder Scrolls. It's obvious how much of a benefit to longevity and sales full modding is to a company.

Too bad they don't offer Future Shock, wouldn't mind having it to complete my collection from the olden days! :Terminator Smiley here: Nod

Still, one free game and 2 more free games if you buy at least one Bethesda game is a great deal.

Almost everyone liked the starter island, but once you left it went down hill fast. Iirc, I don't think it did nearly as well as LotR, when it went F2P.

What? the starter island was dull, both Cimmeria and Stygia where a Conan fan's wet dream. The atmosphere in AOC was incredible.


I bet its gonna be a F2P moba
It's been so long I've forgotten, but did the voice acting stop after the starter island? It was like they ran out of money at level 30 and everything after (especially the addon/expansion) was a grind-fest.

I would advise against it, unless your a glutton for punishment! Biting Giggle
Even for free? Either way, I doubt I will every play it due to BUSY life (still haven't seen Ant-Man, SW:TFA, etc. :P).
Yeah, sadly. Iirc, it's not real F2P like Guild Wars 2 or LotRO, limited more like SWTOR to make you pay even if your not monthly.

I love the game. Running 6 toons. (I don't play MMOs, I play this cause of the lore.)
Same here, but only 4 toons for me. I'm really playing because of the lore as well, getting to see all the regions and world it pretty damn cool. Lighter

Also, I'm betting it's more like 38 gig download for the 45 gig install, since there is compression. They did make a mistake by not making it for 5 to 7 days.

i'm generally disinterested by mmos, and love the elder scrolls. i just bought an amulet of akatosh from the beth store (don't judge me) but that was another of my qualms in ESO in addition to how outright boring it is: it just has some bad, bad lore. it shouldn't surprise me that there would be contradictory or stupid material considering how many writers must be working on it but god damn is it stupid sometimes. and the quest design.. eruughh. in the daggerfall covenant at least it's just an endless chain of "go here, kill 20 things, figure out which daedric prince is causing trouble this time!
Don't feel bad, I finally spent that 1000 crowns we were given as pre-buy2play members. After seeing this video I bought the polar bear cub. Glomp

I don't remember the Daggerfall area quests being terrible. Nor do I remember any quests which were about just about quota without a story basis. I.e. if I need to take out some bandits and rescue kidnapped victims, it's perfectly reasonable to take out 5 guards and 5 traps (for victim escape). At least to me, almost anything is better than the writing at Bethesda, in fairness the dialogs seem better in Fallout 4. TES has always been about power and political manipulations, not to mention centering on the conflict with daedra.

The storyline I was most surprised by was the Aldmeri Dominion. I avoided it until I had to play it, since don't play villains in games. I sure didn't want to play an Aldmeri jerk! Backstab . It turned out to be a struggle I could get behind, without giving away spoilers. In fact, I'm still memorized by her behind. Mwahaha

Yeah, it sucks some are at risk, but there's still a chance it's not too serious. I would imagine if there was a massive breech and the security firm didn't inform them officially they could be held liable in some sense.

No way I will update till everything settles down. I finally got LOOT running, it's been driving me crazy having 106 mods, 51 of which are eps plugins. Even though the masterlist is just getting started, it recognized and sorted all 51 esp files.
How will you be stopping it what with steam update and all?

Also I hear the beta disabled esp file loading,and news on if the final does?
Offline mode, just disable your connection. Then try to connect to Steam, choose offline mode.
