Same here. Over the years I've obtained a bunch of free games from Origin, including Dragon Age, Mass Effect 2, Jade Empire and BF3. 17 games in all.

Funnily enough, I have never bought a game on Origin. Just the free ones.

Me too for some of their games. It's sad that I still haven't played some of them!

I played the earlier v1.0 demo, but it was so choppy and slow on this ancient computer. It was WAY better with this new release. Great game just like the original! I like how it supports all OSes!

Meh, I dunno. Do those things actually prevent accidents?

Also our robot driver overlords cannot arrive soon enough.
I want KITT/KARR!

He was in for heart surgery - though I don't know what exactly - and he had a stroke post-op from which they couldn't save him. People forget a lot of people go in for surgery, of all kinds, at any age, and don't come out. It's not something to be approached lightly ever. I'm still having complications and problems 2 weeks on now and it was elective fucking day surgery. Anyway, that sucks, everyone loved Bill. Actually just watched Aliens a few days ago too.
Yea, I hvave had surgeries that messed me up too like in 1998. Broken nerves for my jaw surgery. These days, I am having health issues too.

No Saturday post as of yet. I wonder if Blue is moving today.

Yeah I hope he's ok... I've been coming here 3x daily for at least ten years, probably more... And I don't recall ever seeing him miss a day. Hopefully there's good news.

Might be a first for bluesnews.
Uh, he did have to take a break from posting when his mom died many years ago. I think Frans took over his role during those times.

5. Sunless Sea was decent during its previous/last free weekend... Feb 18, 2017, 03:33 Ant
 
http://aqfl.net/node/11751 for my brief review. I wonder if much changed since then to make it better?

Didn't NBA2K always suck for PCs compared to consoles?

... Its a lot of fun to talk with the devs and see the games and play them.
Yep, like David Braben @ E3 2014 which was unexpected. Cool room, very few people, cool Elite:Dangerous game (not an Elite fan series, but my friend told me to go look!), etc.

Perhaps I'll make the move for retirement, when an Internet connection isn't so important.
Pfft. My usage went up when I retired.
Or unemployed.

Trailer looks super good, game plays like shit, lags horribly, combat is extremely clunky. But you can drag your 12" dick over your dead opponent and look at giant silicone tits.
Marketing always look good.

This is actually a really good PvE Sci-fi action game thats suffering from a famished playerbase. I have to say that the main reason I quit playing was the lack of players to play with

The community that exists is pretty nice though, as are most niche and small communities.
Ditto. I finally found people to play with earlier today. It was actually fun even though I suck badly as a newbie. I didn't escape and had to sacrifice my life in game. Ha. Anyways, the game reminded me of ALIENS, Alien Swarm, etc. Single player's mission 2 was hard though because I couldn't figure out how to find more of the resonators from the mapping device.

More in <a href="http://aqfl.net/node/12036">my brief review</a>.
