10 DLCs, no less, way to go Paradox. Furious2

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.

They are the kings of dlc nonsense but there are a lot of publishers taking up their cause. Many AA publishers have bought into that mindset, I guess to maximize their profits given their customer base not being as big for other genres. All it has taught me in the past five years is to be more patient and buy games 6-12 months after release up to 2-3 years in some cases.

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.

Eh, guess thats life. Ya snooze ya lose. The game has been free on Epic for a week and in several Humble bundles and the monthly the past 1.5 years. I'd be more sympathetic but I have major gripes with the pricing on this game (paradox published so no surprises there) and own it on 3 platforms now. Only one of which has the full version, minus the new dlc anyway.

SFC 3 but not 1 or 2?
No Starfleet Academy?

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

SFC1 has been on GoG for a couple of years at least now.

wow that heist story is nuts. the chinese aren't just content to steal IP anymore, they're stealing whole western corporations now. nvidia and apple really need to do what google did and unilaterally pull out of china.

They've been doing it for a long time. Just look at Fellowes paper shredders, what over a decade ago?

100 years ago Mauser and Astra were in competition with Chinese copies of their pistols (broomhandle c96). Licensed copies? Hah, no.

Shit sale as always. The last good sale was about a decade ago (yup folks, time goes by fast). I remember setting my alarm in the middle of the night so not to miss the flash sales -- man, those flash sales were SICK!

10 years ago, people. 10 fucking years ago.

The flash sales still exist. They're now called mid-week and weekend sales that happen... every week of the year.

Definately better potential then DLSS in the long term if the rumor mill is true on how little work is needed to implement it. The list of games is amusing though. The Riftbreaker isn't even out yet except for its demo. I'd say give it 6-12 months to see the true effect on its adoption by devs.

Oh, sorry, wrong store. Stickers and points instead.
What can we do with stickers and points, oh right, absolutely fuckall.

Another Steam sale - another thread of full of people complaining about shitty sale prices. With most repeating how they hardly buy anything from Steam.
,..,,.,.,.,..,.,.,
And whoever thought of time limited demos requiring you to play by their schedule (not yours) deserves a special place in hell.


Gotta hype up the product so people will consume said product then get excited for next product.

It does prove that the devs/publishers who claim a demo is not worth the time/money to make are often lying or exaggerating. Then again maybe devs have realized that they need demos again given how crowded the market is these days.

Trigon (rimworld in space), City of Gangsters, WH40k Battlesector and Wartales look interesting at least to download the demos.

Also, I'd buy something on Epic Game's $10 off subsidized sale if they had any exclusive games I was interested in buying for $10-15 this time but alas they do not.

Except for Linus, who seems to be trying to defend Nvidia's money grab lately, no one is impressed with the 3070 ti. Performance doesn't really warrant the extra $100 (MSRP) and the silicon would have been better used cranking out more 3070s instead of diluting the high end market even more.

Jayz has a point that by delaying the 3070ti announcement to one week after the 3080ti announcement, Nvidia was likely just trying to get everyone to buy a ridiculously over priced card.
Linus has been getting it wrong a lot lately. His coverage of the Apple M1 CPU was atrocious. His hot takes on the state of GPU releases also seems to be self serving. Since there are so many other sources for this kind of news that blow Linus out of the water, I don't pay much mind to him anymore.

Its been interesting to see if Linus' is just being a contrarian or if he is really that ego bruised over his foolish take on the 3080ti. Especially when even the 3070ti at a mere $100 more than the $500 of the 3080ti is still a bad deal. Its just less of one.

His middle of the road take during the GPP drama with Nvidia a couple of years ago then switching to the anti-nvidia side when they backed down was illustrative of his worrying still about cheesing off corporate sponsors. Of course, then he was anti-Nvidia when they went after Hardware Unboxed last year.

Just an FYI, the game came out on Epic in Dec, 2019. Its been out for 1.5 years on that platform.

It looks like they've made some decent improvements with the expansion, which of course brings the price up to the same as release's $50. Co-op is still controlled by the host but at least you can let your friends gear out their mechs themselves. I don't see anything definitive if the game will have Steam workshop support though.

Oh, and I've read that the offline installers on the GoG version haven't been released yet.

Never played the first two games and given the issues with Stellaris, Imperator Rome and EU, this is a hard pass until 6+ months after release with great reviews.

Lets just say I regret buying it instead of waiting for reviews, even on a 20% discount. Apparently the co-op is uh, well you can help friends in missions but you get no credit or rewards even if on the same team/crew like in the space ship part of the game. Also, make sure you have 100+GB free storage space if patching your install. Otherwise, uninstall the game and download the new version (70GB total size up from the 25GB of Horizons).

Torn Banner developers got into a big argument with Steam users on the Community page and the thread was locked. They kept making arguments that Steam didn't support or care for developers because of their 30% commission and how Epic is now the future because they help fund the game in advance and only take 10%. Failing to comprehend that this is an unsustainable startup strategy to try and grow their book while losing $100's of millions a year. Can't really hate Steam for not doing likewise. If they think Epic is going to keep doing this indefinitely they don't understand how anything works.

Hopefully they aren't that naive and its just them trying to justify taking the Epic cash and defending their sugar daddy. I get the devs taking the easy money to help the bottom line and get their game out but they should just be honest about it.

Interesting takes I've seen on this one. Pro and con. Shame the matchmaking is apparently not good. Hopefully once people learn the mechanics they'll work together more.

No real interest in this one from me, not interested in just pvp. It was summed up well by a streamer I watched play it last week, "I was hoping it was going to be a medieval payday". Maybe they'll put in a coop pve mode down the road.

I wonder what they can do that they haven't done already. I suppose we say that about Civ as well though, and they manage to innovate.
The UI looks "Stellaris level" good. That said, I'm not sure I will dive into this one with Stellaris making good progress and Distant Worlds 2 coming out soon (I'm in the closed beta). I loved GalCiv 2, but GalCiv 3 never captivated me since moving to Distant Worlds. And all of the Brad Wardell drama has kind of soured me on him and his antics.

Eh, if its Stellaris level good UI in looks that might sell me on it. GC3 was ok but spent less time with it than 2. I still have to try DW. I tried to get back into Stellaris but it just isn't grabbing me. Paradox should just give up and start over. They've been trying to fix that game or figure out a coherent design for 5 years now.
