With no flash deals anymore, the whole sale is meh. Check it out on day 1 and then don't bother coming back. Hell, ignore it on day 1 and come back on day 2 so you can use Steam without it crashing.

Eh, it depends. I still come across games on sale I didn't see in the list the first day. Steam changes what they highlight every day or few hours so you can find something you missed if it isn't on your wishlist.

Case is probably the most important issue with silence and fans. Fractal Design's Define case (R5 model now) is one of the best while only being around $100 (with built in case fan speed control).

CPU air cooling, Noctua is the best in my experience. Expensive but not as much as good water cooling.

News Comments > Civilization VI Announced

I've been a cynic on this series since Civ3 long ago. Civ4 is probably my favorite of the series but like others I'll wait until I see what the DLC/Expansions offer.

I got V after the second or third expansion I think. I shouldn't have... it wasn't much better than the original demo. Its just not as good as Civ4 and I hated the hex and combat systems. At least I was only out about $20. Beyond Earth looked to be much the same and I avoided it.

I've spent almost no time in the single player, almost all of my time is online with friends. It helps to have people to run heists etc. with. There are negatives in overall gameplay and design but the game is great.

Hackers are an issue though and rockstar is only going to care about the hackers and the people who get free cash from them because that dips into their shark card business.

Panned by fans.

Panned by people too concerned with "SJWs" and conspiracies to actually prioritize their lives.

It is hard to avoid conspiracies it when the producers etc. make a big deal out of it being all chicks to try to sell it under the whole grrl power meme. But ignoring the politics angle, just look up the reddit post/thread about the issues around the making of the film. A supposed insider dished a bunch of dirt awhile back. It doesn't look good. There is even a rumor from the leaked "north korean" sony hack that they studio was putting legal pressure/bribes to old cast members to do cameos/talk up the new movie.


And then there is the trailer. Status: They've nuked the fridge with another "classic" Hollywood franchise. Now back to your regular coverage of lame movie tie in games.

News Comments > Beamdog on Siege of Dragonspear Complaints
48. Re: Morning Mobilization Apr 7, 2016, 18:40 FloorPie
 
Hah, people citing the Riker versus ensemenating a husk chick-non chick episode of TNG. Pretty sure that episode was to demonize straights vs gay more than gender binary vs not. Of course, in that TNG episode you could argue they had evolved to non binary genders rather than say, just cutting off body parts.

Back to Take the Beam out of our Eye Beamdog:

"We’ve received feedback around Mizhena, a supporting character who reveals she is transgender. In retrospect, it would have been better served if we had introduced a transgender character with more development. This is a lesson we will be carrying forward in our development as creators and we will be improving this character in a future update. "

Translation: Get stuffed, you intolerant BG traditionalists. You'll get more tranny nonsense and maybe we'll write a decent story around it, because we really do care... to virtue signal to people who probably don't play our games.

Apparently the girdle or masculinity/femininity and Edwin(a)'s nether scroll don't exist in the original games, making the whole tranny storyline moot and dumb to begin with.

Why don't they just write a new story in Faerun? Nah, gotta shit on the classics.

Then there is the fact that its reported to be a buggy mess and the story is rather lame overall. But the trannies!

I played in that open stress test weekend last fall. Its a fun enough MP shooter but not worth $60 to me.

First game I've pre-ordered in awhile besides blizzard ones. I had lots of fun in the beta, put about 6 hours in. I have some concerns about gameplay and longevity but I'm willing to take the risk based on what I've seen.

I can't complain to much. I got the game via nvidia with a video card and then because of the problems they gave out free copies of Arkham City (I think) and another batman game.

I always feel somewhat suspicious when they are coy with the gameplay before it comes out.


Yeah, that has me worried as well. Tempting to get it since I don't have the remastered versions of Homeworld but with no early reviews or let's plays out there... its hard to buy in now.

I've seen it on sale for the xbone at $39. I'll probably get the PC version when it hits $20 or less.

Well, I still use Winamp daily as my sole MP3 player. I have zero interest in streaming content (unless it's one of the few webradio spots left), and I have a thing called directory-structure that functions as my library.

Someone turned me on to something called AIMP when I brought up this headline today. Haven't checked it out yet, but sounds promising.

I've been using it off and on for a couple of years. Its not perfect but I like it.

No kidding. I complained about CIG's marketing rigging a community poll for best development studio of year on another gaming news site (seriously, Square Enix was ahead by a mile then CIG's marketing announced the poll on reddit and suddenly CIG had almost 700 more votes) and got attacked by the cultists. To call them immature and rude would be a gross understatement. I don't envy Derek for having to put up with the constant barrage of hate these rabid idiots have hurled at him since he started pointing out that CIG might not be on the up and up.

Don't feel sorry. He knew exactly what he was getting himself into when he took CIG to task and made demands. Besides if there ever a person who can handle it Derek would be that person.

I have to give Derek respect for it. Never thought I would say that after the usenet days.

As for the GOG sale I haven't bought anything on GOG in quite some time but the X-Wing bundle was ripe for the picking this time around, although I wish they would have sold the individual games for the prices inside that bundle because I didn't really need/want them all.


Thats how they get you. Same thing happened to me with HOMM5 last sale they had. Oh well. I already had #3 but now I have all of them. At least they take the one's you own out of the price.

Gettysburg Generals for $4.49 looks good, that and shadow warrior.
