Interesting statistic. Trump is the first president in nearly 50 years not to have started any new foreign conflicts. The president before him not to do that was Jimmy Carter.

When was the last president that started as many internal conflicts, I wonder?

Um.... what? Note the price listed for the expansion pass at $2,499.99 CDN. I think you guys might have been off a little on your projections of how much DLC there will be for this game.

So how is the game? Better than W2? W2 was very meh to me. Nowhere near the charm, story and choice that Fallout2 was.

I quite disliked W2, but I've been enjoying W3 quite a lot. Definitely much improved. Is it as good as Fallout 2? For most people probably not, nostalgia adds a ton of weight to things that were good way back when. It has some strong improvements to the combat, like illustrating who you can hit from each spot you can move to by hovering over it and the hit chance. Often encounters have multiple ways to resolve them, from outright attack, to talking your way out of it, to bribing people, to surprise attacks (not stealth though... no getting yourself set up in reasonable locations then firing unless you want to be way far away and engage your first shot with a sniper rifle.) Like, there are some places that have world elements that can be used against the enemies if you take the right path and have the right skills, and you can wipe out a good chunk of them before the fight even starts. But those are pretty rare.

The story allows for some ambiguity in what's right. Some question on who's actually being honest with you and who's not. Do you trust the gangster? The lawmen? The thugs? More than that, do you risk your reputation by trying to find the truth instead of just following public opinion on who 'should' be the guilty parties? And it doesn't always tell you if you got the answer wrong, you just march on ahead hoping you did the right thing.

It's a good game. Is it worth $80 to me? I don't know. I'm playing it via the gamepass and it's obviously well worth that.

On what platforms will Wasteland 3 be coming out? The reviews seem to be mostly glowing, but since the game is not officially "OUT" yet, I wanna hear a bit from the early buyers. Looks more interesting than W2 though, which is my main gripe with W2. It was just "Meh"....

Give it a shot on Microsoft's Game pass. $1 and you can try it for a full month yourself. Officially it's on PC (steam, MS Game Pass or GOG), Xbox One, PS4.

Microsoft PC Game Pass is the best deal in PC gaming at the moment.
I got it for $1 the first month to play Outer Worlds and have kept it. 5 bucks a month is nothing for how many games I have been able to play and try.

MS Flight Sim
Wasteland 3
Ori
Minecraft Dungeons
Gear Tactics
State of Decay 2
and a ton of others.

Give it a shot..it is literally a buck for the first month.

Also is going to have Crusader Kings 3 on it. Definitely worth it to try out the games and see if you want to drop the coin on a separate copy.

There are few good things to say about it at this point. I already uninstalled it after steam refused a refund based on the fact that I spent too long trying to connect to the servers in an attempt to play the game to warrant a refund. Literally, I played the login menu for too long because i wanted to try it.

When I actually got in and played, it was one of the most bland and boring ARPGs I've played in a long time. Uninteresting skills, not enough sense of impact in getting hit or in landing hits. The art style is cute, but that's about the only plus.

No VR sadly, the Superhot VR is one of my absolute favourite VR experiences. But still free for existing owners of the original game (either version) is incredibly generous. I totally would have paid for it and been happy to do so.

You can buy T3, but isn't it still "Early Access"?

I think they meant 2.

This. I can't imagine anyone trying to suggest Torchlight 3 is good.

Interesting how some posters believe in guilty until proven guilty in regards to these cases. Perhaps someone should blanket accuse some of you. That would be grand.

See, the thing about that is, a company doesn't have to follow that. They can decide you're guilty based on accusations, or they can decide it's not worth the hassle or negative PR of waiting for a longer investigation. You do not have a right of presumed innocence when it comes to your employment. That only applies in court. If these people felt themselves wronged, they can take the company to court for slander and see what happens. Of course that drags all the evidence that the company has against them out into the open during a trial. Up to them if they truly believe they've done nothing wrong.

Now of course is the time when someone will try to cry "wrongful dismissal" which is a load of nonsense unless you were dismissed under discriminatory circumstances (and no, these don't apply).

Steam now carries all of the EA games that EA pulled from their store, as well as all the Ubi games. So I don't see a reason to use either Origin or Uplay.

I generally don't either, but at the same time it's worth checking to see if any game you might be interested in is part of Origin Access. I wanted to try Anthem, but wasn't ready to shell out full price for it, played it for a month, along with trying a few other games I was interested in. Got my fill, decided I didn't want to spend full price on it. Total cost, $20 to play 4 or 5 games as much until I wasn't interested in them anymore.

It was definitely worth it for me, but I wouldn't maintain a subscription with them. I just keep an eye out and if there are a few games I'm interested in but not willing to pull the trigger on at full price, I might drop another $20 with them again to see if they're worth buying.

Did the same with the Xbox game pass for PC which had a $1 trial month, very much worth it to try a few games I was interested in.

I don't know that there are enough Ubisoft games that interest me though outside of the ones I've already bought.

Also, should be pointed out that the $30 yearly is only for the basic Origin Access. The premier that includes their newer big title games is $130 a year, though there is a ton of games still offered in the basic. Way more than ubi seems to offer. Still if there's a game on there you might be interested in, could try it full for 7 days.

Well deserved. This game has some of the smoothest gameplay I've ever seen in a platformer/action game. Always feels like there's something accomplished in a run, whether you get past a boss, get to a new zone, find some new blueprints or even just bring home some cells to spend on upgrades. Haven't played it in a while, but it's something I come back to pretty regularly and well worth every penny I spent on it and more.

Outward is not an MMO, it's a sandbox RPG that feels a lot like Morrowind both aesthetically and mechanically. The defining feature is that you don't die and have to just reload a save when you lose all your HP, you pass out and wake up in a semi-randomly chosen other location, losing some time and maybe some items. I.e. if bandits defeat you, they'll take you back to their camp and hold you prisoner, so then you need to escape. It also supports two-player co-op.

Thanks for that. I've seen some people complain the world, whilst nice, is fairly devoid of actual stuff to do. Would you agree or not? I guess, ultimately is it worth $15US? I'll watch some gameplay of it. Have you grabbed the new DLC for it?

It is a bit on the empty side, but that said it's an interesting take on an RPG, including survival issues. The need to bandage wounds or risk bleeding out after a fight. Curing poisons or diseases before they 'kill' you. Eating, drinking and sleeping or suffering increasingly debilitating consequences. Have to be concerned with the weather. Walking around in the snow you need the right clothing, or need potions to negate the negative effects or you'll freeze. Hot weather you have to mitigate the same way or eventually it'll get you too. Have to consider the tent you buy, bigger is more comfortable, but easier to spot so you get interrupted rest more frequently. When you DO rest, you have to decide how much time is devoted to actually resting, how much to repairing and how much to keeping watch for bandits/predators.

There are story missions that have major impacts if you fail or ignore them for too long. For example, you're warned of an attack on your home town. If you take out 3 leaders of a bandit group, you stop the attack. If you fail or wander off to do something else in the meantime, the home town is destroyed and inaccessible.

It has a lot of REALLY cool ideas, but the end makeup of them is honestly a little weak. I personally think it's worth $15 just for the experience. That said, haven't tried the DLC.

Oh! And the co-op... it's weirdly made. It works, but only the host player can save. Whoever is playing with you as a guest, cannot play that save without you. At all. They'd have to start their own private game to play without you.

"Justice" has been served for the low, low price of just ONE tweet. A bar-gain.

It was more than one tweet, all this tells me is you didn't even look at what was said. It was 18 successive tweets, and his apology is essentially admission of guilt. While it may not be enough for a court, it's definitely enough for a company to decide they want nothing to do with him.
