Saints Row 3 was actually the meh'est of 1-4 (I thought 4 was phenomenal. 2 was fun since I had already played all the GTA's at the time but still wanted something more.)

Whereas most of the time it's the best of the series that gets remastered, maybe they decided to pull a psychological trick and remaster the worst. I mean...it actually kinda makes sense.


Disagreed 100%. 4 was a cash grab that added almost nothing. 2 was boring as hell and still trying to be GTA with (very) slightly more humor. 3 was when they realized in-game insanity was what made their game fun and unique.

The thing about the Civ games since Civ 4 is that every expansion has really changed and improved the gameplay. For these games it has been the case (for many I've talked to, including myself) that the previous iteration with all expansions is better than the current with no expansions, but the current with all expansions is better than the previous with all expansions.

And the expansions for each game are properly classified as Expansions and not DLC. While the core mechanics stay mostly the same, each expansion also introduces a lot of new stuff (not just new civs) that change how the game is approached.

Very true. They have both DLC and expansions. The DLC is generally a new faction and a couple faction based units/scenarios. The expansions include major game changing things (religion, etc)

Civ4 was the best. The lead designer for Civ4, Soren Johnson, has a new Civ style game coming out called the Old World.

Early access for it is already available apparently, but be warned it appears to be Epic store only so expect to attract the haters just by virtue of mentioning it.

I would have preferred a Saints Row 2 remaster as I have heard it was the best one, but I only ever played the demo a little and found the graphics poor and the controls super-jenky.

Still, of those I've played SR:T is my absolute favorite. So I'll almost certainly be grabbing this.

Disagree on number 2 being the best. As far as I'm concerned, it was still following way too heavily in GTA's shadow at that point. It wasn't until the Third that they distinguished themselves by not taking themselves seriously and going to truly ridiculous lengths to create fun gameplay.

The way that email is written implies that Epic is reaching out to recent purchase makers to just throw some money at them... Like, I could, and have, had other stores do this (Future Shop, in Canada, before BB bought them, you could just head up to the Customer Service desk with your receipt and get the difference), but for the company to pro-actively do that is just straight bad business practice heh

They do something nice for customers and you're criticizing them for it? Treating customers well build reputation and earns repeat business.

Personally, I have no problem buying from Origin, GOG, etc.. In fact Steam is my second top choice to buy from.

Epic has the resources to compete toe-to-toe with Steam. They have brand recognition, and mountains of money to feed into strong development. They've instead chosen a route of forcing me to a lackluster store front if I want certain (and I'm sure they'd prefer it be all) third-party AAA games on release day.

Their sales and giveaways are great, but that too smells of money just being thrown around for short-term gains. A race to the bottom I choose not to favor in who I support with my purchases. If they improve things I may consider them more so in the future.

Not a very compelling argument. "If I want it on release day" is directly contrary to the use of the word "Forcing". No one is forcing you to buy it on release day. You're the one doing that.

If you and enough others wait for the release window to open on other stores and buy it there, companies will realize that the exclusivity isn't in their best interests and it will cease to be a thing.

As far as 'forcing you to use a lackluster store front', if you already know the game you're looking for, all you need do is type it in the search, click and hit buy. Then you can run it from your library or home page quite easily. The fact that you cite these things as problems is pretty telling. If they're AAA titles that you are intent on buying on release day, you already know what you're looking for and you know what store it's releasing on, then you should be able to use a search function. Of course, you don't need to, given that every major release has a banner ad on the home page on the first week of their release that you can click on just as easily as you would on steam or Origin, or GoG. Then the purchase button works just the same way.

You make it sound like you're manually scrolling through a series of disorganized titles to find what you want, when given your own explanation that's /clearly/ not the case. It's a lie. You have lied to try and make your argument against them.

Feel free not to buy from them all you want, but the nonsense you're spewing isn't helping your argument any at all.

I know a lot of people don't like Sweeney's tactics, but a Steam monopoly is better? What's the alternative?

Oh it has nothing to do with what people like or what's better for gamers, or anything like that. This is just like politics these days. It's a my-side/your-side based argument where my-side are the only intelligent, morally responsible people and your-side are the embodiment of pure evil.

These people have gone past logic and are all about ideology now. They've identified with 'their-side' whichever that is, so thoroughly, their belief so entrenched that no amount of information or facts are going to sway them.

Probably safe to say that 99.99% of gamers enjoy free games, 0.01% go on rants about how much it sucks to get free games.

Very safe to say, I'd imagine. More to the point of this, if your only issue is with wanting to screw Epic over, then shouldn't you be getting the free games anyways, just in case it makes epic pay for them? Then don't play them all you want.

Yep, that's all that exists in this world. Jerks and snowflakes. There certainly isn't a large segment of mature adults between those two poles that would rather not have to listen to a bunch of a**holes cursing each other out and berating newcomers to a game for not instantly knowing everything about it.

Wonder if it has something to do with the specific titles they're going to offer in that period. Maybe they're splurging on something more expensive than the usual and want to make sure people aren't spoofing accounts for it? Who knows?

The Internet Research Agency, just a regular ol' PR firm, amirite?

I guess that's why Mueller had to indict them.

Thirteen Russians and three Russian entities were indicted by a federal grand jury in connection with the attack on the 2016 election. The indictment lays out a number of detailed allegations against the Internet Research Agency located in St. Petersburg and against individuals who owned, controlled, funded or worked for the organization.

Goodness. This sounds like more than a few measly memes that only got 50k views. And I do believe the article states that it began in 2014. Now, my math may not be perfect, but I'm fairly certain that's before the 2016 election.

Thank you for the source. Of course they'll claim it's just NPR, a left-wing rag or something like that and dismiss it entirely, but what can you do?

I still prefer the SR2 to all the rest. The Third was fun, but will live in infamy for killing off Johnny Gat.

Edit: Well, didn't notice it was EGS exclusive. Looks like I won't be getting it anyway.

2 still took itself too seriously for my tastes. Felt like GTA with a little humor added in. 3 went off the rails and made it insane fun for me. 4 is garbage.

So much insanity, so much chaos. It is without question in my mind, the best of them.

That said, as someone who loved this game even I don't know that I care about a remaster. The graphics were never an issue in the first place.

Yep, how dare people not put their health at risk so you can have your games patched faster? It's clearly all a hoax, just so they can refuse to fix their games right? I mean, it's not like the majority of businesses are shutting their doors right now or forcing people to work from home, and countless people have been laid off from jobs that they don't even know will still exist when this is all over.

Yes, it's all an excuse.

The name of this game is pretty terrible, but the game looks good. Once they fix the servers I'll give it a shot.

Is it pronounced 'WOL-SEN' or 'WOKEN'?

Wol-sen. Anyone who pronounces it "Woken" (the "l" isn't silence, and there's no "k" in the word) should have their PC taken away and only be allowed to play video games on a Nintendo Switch.

Funny, having never heard it before, I automatically assumed it was pronounced 'VOL-CHEN'.
