Here's the thing... if StarCitizen was on Steam right now how do you think reviews would go? If I checked out the KS page it would be FULL of fanboi reviews (not being an asshole about this speculation but I think I have a point if ya check out the Star Citizen forums).

That's why it's not on Steam. CIG can't control what people say and how they rate on Steam.

I'm glad Valve is doing this. I want to know what people, who actually bought and spent more than a few hours playing, think.

Considering how many units they sold I'd imagine No Man's Debt is another apt name for NMS. Arrrr.

I have a wild theory that CS:GO is #1 because it's a fun game that people enjoy playing. Crazy I know.

Do you guys think Valve also fake the user stats that show CS:GO had a peak playerbase today 10 times higher than the next most popular paid game (639,072 vs 64,958)?

Or do you think it might just be a popular game and there's no conspiracy or malpractice behind it?

I don't believe Valve did anything nefarious. More than likely the recent mass VAC bans led to enough people buying the game again to place it on Steam's Top 10 list.

I think CS:GO is #1 in part because you can make a lot of money from selling cards, especial certain rare ones, on the Community Market. 4 of the Top 10 go for as much as $436 a piece.

#2 StatTrakô Karambit | Doppler (Minimal Wear)... Starting at: $436.01
#4 StatTrakô Flip Knife | Lore (Minimal Wear)... Starting at: $426.10
#9 Karambit | Crimson Web (Minimal Wear)... Starting at: $415.44
#10 StatTrakô Karambit | Doppler (Factory New).... Starting at: $415.44

Not liking Star Trek Discovery's premise. Feels to much like the season three of Enterprise.

God damn it... Rogue.
If it's Rouge, it's a makeup based simulation.

Maybe the game is born with it. Maybe it's a Miscalculation.

I thought this review on GOG was an excellent summation. (Cleaned up grammar and fixed typos)

4/5 Finally a good space game by AdamSnow

After the disappointment that was No Man's Sky and Star Citizen, which is long ways off, I was looking for a good space game to scratch that itch; I found it.

Pro :

- Fun combat: Layered weapons systems with an interplay between shield and hull damage,
- Sound controls: works great both with keyboard and 360 controllers in 3D and 1st person view,
- Replayability: Being rouge-like means you will die repeatedly, and each "level" is different enough not to be too similar,
- New objectives and missions throughout each run: sometimes they will jam your sensors, at times prevent you from continuing forward and something they will ask for your assistance,
- Didn't encounter any bugs (knock on wood)

Con :

- Poorly explained mechanics: especially with the crafting, and the fact that you should not try and be mister-space-hero right off the bat. Also, doesn't explain who's friendly (Green) / enemy (Red) / neutral (Yellow/Orange),
- Lacks a sense of progression at times: There is a sense of an overarching story, but it is not fleshed out yet,
- Can't keep my favorite weapons and load outs

Things that can go either way:

- RNG elements,
- No central motivation aside from keep moving forward,
- Rouge-light / Rouge-like

Summary:

It is a good game that is unfinished and not expertly explained.

If you are still not sure watch ACG review on Youtube. It is a great (and updated) example of gameplay.

----

Hope that helps.

I made $3.26 selling those Steams "cards" you occasionally get while playing games. Not exactly rolling in it, though. But just think: 24 more cents and I'll have tree fiddy.

Nice thanks, I forgot about archive.org!

Welcome! Archive.org, Wikipedia and a few other sites I give to every year. I couldn't imagine the Internet without a site like Archive.org. The old school news (like 9/11 and Occupy Wall Street) and old school PC games are fantastic resources for what happened.

It's been on Steam a long time. I remember it being in past sales plus you can see that the total number of reviews and recent number of reviews are not equal.

Weird. Might have been a database glitch then.

It means something when there are no reviews on Steam for this game.

I see 10k+ reviews on my end. Mixed rating.

Oh, that is interesting. At the time of my previous post, there were no reviews. I made the conclusion the game had been on Steam for months, if not years, and no one bothered to write a single review. It would appear Ubisoft published it on Steam today.

Well, there's Runic. They made Torchlight with Diablo alumni and former Blizz employees. Pretty successful project.
Runic was founded by people who jumped the Flagship before it sank.

Indeed. I stand corrected.

Remember the last studio, founded by dev celebrities departing from Blizzard, being richly funded from the start without having a proper project?

Ahh, yes, Flagship Studios! Oh boy, those were funny days

Go back and read how the conversation unfolded. I posted my thoughts about NMS in a trivial manner, and almost immediately it became adversarial. You weren't keen on having a conversation about the comparison. You only wanted to prove how my analogy was wrong and was looking for nothing less than an admission from me for that. The point is if you want to have a discussion with someone don't start a reply with a hostile variation of "you're wrong." That's an excellent way to get people to tune out, or not go into details about what they meant.

Chris Metzen isn't going to retire. I'm certain he'll end up at Rob's studio soon enough; maybe not this year, but likely next.
