I'll give the demo a try but I am not sure I'll get the game.
A video on my youtube feed came up as a complete play through 6.5hrs
I skipped to the end and indeed the guy finished the game. It seems rather short. I thought the previous games were much longer

As with all games, your playtime comes down to several factors:
1) The difficulty setting you choose.
2) Your playstyle.
3) The amount of optional content you complete.

If you play on the highest difficulty and go for 100% completion, you'll easily get at least 20 hours out of the game.

Portal Combo package for a whopping $2.99 .

Is there anyone in existence that doesn't already own both Portal games?

On a side note, Shadow Tactics is awesome and everyone should buy it.

Bethesda's games seem to go on sale real quick. Wolfenstein II and Evil Within 2 both came out about a month ago and they're already 50% off. Even more surprising is that the Wolfenstein season pass is 50% off on a bunch of sites too.

These awards are based on community votes, so don't expect anything niche to win.

I mean, you got two huge, incredible single-player games winning for the other consoles and a multiplayer phenomenon on PC, all exclusives... then Xbox's GOTY is an indie 2D action/platformer, which by the way wasn't deemed good enough for overall best indie game.

There was no award for best overall indie game... only best indie game that was part of the Square Enix Collective program, which is extremely limiting.

I was thinking they probably regretted doing AP.

Not at all. They've gone on record saying that they'd love to make a sequel.

The bonus missions were just that: bonus missions. They weren't originally part of the season pass and were basically given away for free.

THESE bonus missions aren't like the OTHER bonus missions. They're super special!!!

Why?

Because IO was still owned (and funded) by Square when those bonus missions were made and now they're not? IO's financial situation is completely different now that they're independent. They can't afford to continue creating substantial free content when they've already delivered everything they originally promised with the first season. Hell, they've delivered more than they promised.

I know it's a crazy notion but game development costs money. Content doesn't magically create itself. But hey, continue fighting the good fight on the internet. You'll show those damn greedy developers who actually want to get paid for doing their job!

In this case, "show, don't tell" definitely applies. Gameplay would have been far more effective than some generic protagonist talking.

$20 for the GOTY upgrade is a bit much for what you get, but I consider it a donation towards Season 2's development.

BF1 sold 23 million copies? Or am I just misinterpreting that statement?

Sounds about right, including PC, PS4 and XB1 sales. Battlefield games are generally solid performers on any platforms they are released on.

23 million is more than just solid. I have a feeling they're including people who just played the beta/demo or played the game on Origin Access.

News Comments > Descent Underground Next Year
24. Re: Descent Underground Next Year Nov 2, 2017, 04:13 Jerykk
 
There were a lot of red flags about the Kickstarter. For one, nobody on the team had actually worked on any of the original Descent games. There's also the fact that almost none of the devs have worked on a game that's shipped within the past 10 years. Then there was the paltry $600k goal with an 8-person team. That would cover maybe a year's worth of development if they worked out of someone's house, skipped all benefits and accepted a low salary.

I don't have much faith in Overload either. They made $300k on KS (before taxes and KS's cut) and have about 6000 owners on Steam. If you subtract the KS backers, that means they've only sold about 1000 units on Steam since they started Early Access in March. 1000 units in 8 months is pretty terrible.

Sadly, there simply isn't much interest in the 6DoF genre. By comparison, Carmageddon: Reincarnation and Road Redemption (two other KS games based on old niche genres) have over 100k owners on Steam.

And Slick "IMO" is not a valid excuse. But since you fail to understand what I'm talking about. Do this: the next time you log into a publisher's heavily modded community forum, start promoting another competing title. See how fast your post gets locked/deleted/relocated.

But this isn't a publisher forum. This is a gaming news forum. I see nothing wrong with talking about Overload, since that game would also be of interest to people interested in D:U. If Overload compares favorably to D:U, that's not our fault.

Good to see older games receiving updates for modern compatibility. Wish more devs/publishers would do that.

Just beat EW2 and enjoyed it quite a bit. Definitely a more consistent experience than the first game, where the first half was good and the second half wasn't. I do think the first game had a more interesting story and characters but that may have been due to the mystery of it all. In the sequel, you basically already know what's happening from the very start.

But yeah, I'd be shocked if EW3 ever happens. EW2 has flopped commercially and hasn't received much critical acclaim either.

RNG and shooters don't really mix. Shooters need to be 100% skill-based. If I lose because my opponent has a better deck, I see no reason to play.

Giant Bomb gave it GOTY. It was my personal GOTY too. $20 is a bit much for a bunch of remixed levels but I really want to see Season 2 and as indie developers, they need all the support they can get.

Personally, I say it's still complete bullshit, as long as they are still running their single player, 'microtransaction dlc scam' and obviously the denuvo. Middlefinger

It's like people turn their brains off when they hear the word "microtransaction." The microtransactions in DX:MD are only for the optional (and completely worthless) Breach mode, not for the actual single-player campaign. You will miss nothing if you buy the game for $15 and don't spend anything after that (except for the DLC, which is actually pretty solid).
