Anyone play this yet? Is it as good as Conquistador?

Star Citizen allows me to get out of a virtual bed, go to my space ship, leave the hangar, the planet, travel to another, land, get out of my ship. Load some cargo on the ship. That is physically put a box from the new planet on my ship. Not just an inventory menu! Fly back to my apartment. No loading or interruption whatsoever. That is incredible.
The game runs well on my RTX 3080, i9 10900k, 32GB system. It’s an experience.

Valheim is the kind of game I can't play right now due to a lack of available time...so it will go on the backlog list for now. Nexus has a modding section for it, which sounds fun as well.

I'm not sure who they think will buy this. It was a great game 21 years ago. You can't release a 2 decade old game with zero updates and enhancements and ask people to pay $30 bucks for it.

Oh, Steam forums are lighting it up too. this is not going the way the devs hoped it would. They better do some real soul searching and rethink this, or it will be the end of this game. The sales will plummet and pirating this game will take on a whole new meaning.

Great yet another mission that's given to you by assholes who make Lamar seem tame (Still would pay 20 bucks to kill him).

Hopefully the Godfall Challenger edition has the full game? It is somewhat vague, it has bonuses listed, so one would assume it has the base game, but who knows.
It is not the full game. The story campaign has been completely removed. From what I've read, you get a boosted Level 50 character so you can try out the endgame content - and evidently they are hoping you'll like it enough to buy the full or deluxe versions of the game.
Those devious bastards... they've reinvented Shareware!

It's gold but we won't be playing it until February?
I won't be playing it until there is the Platinum Enhanced Edition or whatever they are going to call it. Like most games these days, it will be much more enjoyable when fully patched and (extra) content complete.
If it's anywhere as good as DL1 you'll be playing it at launch alright. If the reviews are good I'll be all over this like cheap cologne on a German hooker.

It doesn't help when publisher/devs play even more pricing games on GoG then they do on other platforms. Since there are no 3rd party key sellers (well a few games via humble that activate on GoG), the prices are not as competitive. Even during the holiday sales you are forced to pay an extra fee for DRM free because many games are cheaper on Steam, let alone the 3rd party sellers that under cut Steam a few more percent.
I saw at least one game that was only 50% off vs 65% off on Steam and that same game's DLC content nor their deluxe edition was on sale at all. Hmm, buy a game on Steam for $30 on sale or pay $45 on GoG.
Its one thing to pay $5-10 extra including foreign transaction fees, its another when it hits $15-20 for the same game.

They've done the deepest dive into the new memory that I've found. When it comes to gaming, it looks significant to me, especially considering how tight performance is with AMD.
It's disappointing to see that DDR5 makes so little difference in general
Their Alder Lake review shows a difference of 5% or less average FPS on every game but Far Cry 5, where it's nearer to 10%... and that's at 1080p. Have you seen the prices on DDR5?
As for price... we're talking about the launch of the fastest hardware on the market, so I give that a pass, for now!

I don't remember having to wait for a login queue back when I used to play D2 like 20 years ago...
IN THE BEFORE TIMES....
Well, even IN THE BEFORE TIMES I seem to remember that the original Diablo 2 launch was many things but not flawless. However, thanks to the absence of a queuing system, all we had to do IIRC is hit the 'retry' or 'reconnect' button like a woodpecker on steroids to get into the game.
My memory is not the best but I seem to remember that it took quite some time back in the day until all launcher issues were ironed out. To be fair, the concept of Battle.net and a distinction between offline and online characters was a novelty back then so we shouldn't be too hard on the Y2K incarnation of Blizzard.
That said, there is certainly no excuse in the year 2021. Diablo 2 Resurrected should be working flawlessly around the clock. Period.
That said once again, my personal experience has been positive (online character in EU) and I have not had any issues at all all the way up to the end of Act 2. The only "issue" I am having is finding the motivation to pick up the corpse of my Necromancer from Duriel's chamber. I know that it will be a grind because to raise skellies you need corpses so first I'm going to have to get back my army of skellies and then I'm going to have to find a way to make them last longer. The first and so far only time I entered Duriel's (very small so no kiting) chamber the skellies lasted all of ten seconds while my Necro was more or less one-hit killed by Duriel. It's going to take some effort to get past that bugger and I'm enjoying other games more at the moment so we'll see... maybe I'll even start over with a Sorceress or a Druid. A summoning-focused Necro was a bit boring and limiting to begin with...

I bought Stellaris recently, since I love sci-fi and civ-style games. But I just couldn't get into it, and part of that was knowing there were more than a dozen DLCs out there that complete the game. F that noise. Two or three expansions I get, especially if there's a GOAT edition, a la Civ or XCom. But a dozen??
As much as I'm loathed to admit this, the DLC for Stellaris is actually good value for money...the last several updates have actually added to several DLCs in their list. I can't speak to their other games but so far I'm much less raged at Stellaris than I thought I would be.
Must be getting old...although with age comes crankiness...so ...hmmm

Yeah, their DLC strategy has really turned me off to their games over the past few years. And I'm a pretty big TBS player.

Its still misleading dude, I'm on the west coast, do you know what that means? It means that by the time Blues got this posted, the deal had already expired for me by the time I got a chance to get on and see it because most of the time, blues doesn't get his updated news posted until around 10 am time my time.

As for Bridge Commander, the fan modded "Maximum Warp Edition" is absolutely the definitive version.
