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

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.

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.

Just grabbing it for the single player campaign. Free is good. It's an Origin key so you don't need the Amazon gaming app.

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.

Featuring $10 off coupons for everyone who is buying a game.
Oh, sorry, wrong store. Stickers and points instead.
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.

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.
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.

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.

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.
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.
