Steam is totally dead y'all.

Well ... when it's a Steam Exclusive in all but name, you have no choice but to use Steam, do you?

And they complain about Epic. *sheesh*

Valve didn't pay the publisher to make it a Steam exclusive. Your "point" is invalid.

Valve/Steam didn't bribe the publisher to make it a Steam exclusive.

People were bitching about Epic well before any of that started happening. Gearbox chose exclusivity. So did Deep Silver. And they became pariahs because they wouldn't suck Gaben's dick. Yet Creative Assembly chooses to go onto Steam only and nobody bats an eyelid.

And don't forget the only reason why Steam started giving refunds was that the Australian government was taking them to court and they thought they could get out of it. Fuck Steam. They had the market on anti-consumer for years before anyone else came on board digital distribution. I'm glad their monopoly is being carved up.


Perhaps you missed the part where MeanJim wrote, rightly so, "Valve didn't bribe the publisher to make it a Steam exclusive." That's why nobody is up in arms about it. If the publishers wants to go exclusive on a particular platform that's their business. But when the platform pays a publisher not to sell their game on a competing platform that's when people get upset.

Dark Crystal... squeal or prequel?

Prequel I believe.

Confirmed. "In May 2017, it was announced that The Jim Henson Company, in association with Netflix, would produce a prequel to the film The Dark Crystal."

This studio does amazing work! Their Divinity games, especially Origin Sin 1 and 2, are wonderful classic RPGs. I could totally see them making a wonderful BG sequel.

I bought this on steam to test it out. Very, very boring game. The voice cast is really bad also. One of the worst games Cyan has ever made. It's free though so good enough. Glad I refunded this game last year.
And they've already started a Kickstarter for a new game.

And that means what exactly?

Nobody hits a home run every time.

Good news everyone. Alex Trebek's stage four cancer is near remission. "It's kind of mind-boggling ... the doctors said they hadn't seen this kind of positive result in their memory ... some of the tumors have already shrunk by more than 50 percent," Trebek says.

Microsoft Modern OS = do everything invisibly while connected to “the cloud”.

Count me in!

Microsoft was the first to join the NSA PRISM program. The NSA wanted Microsoft to add basic spyware to Kinect 2.0 with its always on, always watching, and always listening technology so they could track "potential threats." Back then Microsoft's definition of "invisibility" meant joining a top-secret spy agency program.

So no thanks, Microsoft. I'll pass on your BS "invisibility."

Sodapoppin is streaming Classic WOW with 36K viewers. Others are streaming Classic with 9k, 10k, and so forth. Basically Classic WOW makes up more viewership numbers than BFA. Between Classic and BFA, WOW is the 5th highest watched game on Twitch ATM. So one could conclude a game that is 15-years-old is almost as popular as Fortnite, Counter Strike, GTA5 and League of Legends. Whoever said Classic WOW has no market or no interest is a tool.

In other news, Anthem has less viewers than Microsoft Fight Simulator X and Tetris. Valve's colossal Hearthstone-clone failure Artifact has more viewers than Anthem.

Yeah, it depends on what they really mean by "invisible", as long as that doesn't also mean "unlogged"...

Pretty sure invisible means happens in the background without the user's knowledge. There will be a log of it, but the update itself will be hidden to end user. When users encounter computer problems, they might not think to look at Windows and first think hardware or some recent software they installed. Only after hours of searching online do they come across a post with the same issue and someone mentioning there was a recent "invisible" update. Microsoft needs to go back to way updates were; optional and visible to end user. Letting the user know an update is ready and letting them decide when to apply the update is the best and only option Microsoft should choose.

Usually, problems can be traced back to recent Windows updates. However, when the updates are invisible, and you encounter an issue, it'll be very challenging to pinpoint the cause. Nobody wants to spend hours searching for the reason to a problem only to find out 5 hours later it was a recent invisible Windows update. Making the updates invisible is a total disaster.

"Sea of Solitude centers on the essence of loneliness and tugs on the heartstrings of its players by mirroring their own reality"

Oh stop, EA. The only heartstrings you tug on is the essence of financial loss associated with your slimy microtransactions.

Thanks Gabe for these 7 steaming turds

Having put over 100 hours into Grim Dawn, I know for a fact, is it not a "steaming turd." It's a cross between Diablo 2 and Path of Exile. An enjoyable game to play that looks great on 4K with all the settings maxed out. Combat is challenging. The story is interesting. I like the synergy between the classes, devotion tree, and weapon stats. They all work together and independently to produce exciting gameplay.
