Why would you...all you need is the DLC stuff, which is like in a total of 7 or 8 files. Big files, but just several files. If you're going to go the cdkeys route, why not just hop on TPB and get the dlcs for the base game? It's the same fucking thing. As far as I'm aware, they didn't change anything in the GOTY edition from the base+dlc.

Because he's not a pirate..? Far Harbor is great and easily the best thing BGS has made in years. It's easily worth $15. Nuka-World was alright and worth about $5-7. The rest was just filler, though Automatron did let you make some pretty overpowered companions.

These sales are great for catching up on the 2-3 years of gaming I missed. Got a lot in the Thanksgiving sale and now time to get the rest. Dark Souls 2 and 3, the more recent isometric RPGs, Vanquish and maybe Quantum Break? Gonna watch a bit of that one on the 'tube.

You can get Quantum Break (and Dawn of War 3 and The Long Dark and a bunch of other random games) for $12 if you sign up for the Humble Monthly bundle. Humble Monthly is great for catching up on older games you might have missed.

The award for the most retarded sale goes to Hitman though. What a bunch of fucks at IO. They learned well how to screw over gamers from their Squeenix overlords.
It has become apparent now that the free holiday pack is lure for a no lube anal intrusion of the highest order.

As much as I enjoyed the free demo, I ain't touching that shit with a 10ft pole simply due to their super-shitty business practices. Merry xmas to you too, assholes.

What are you talking about?

My favorite Far Cry order: 2, 3, 1, Primal, 4.

Far Cry 4 always felt like a Far Cry 3 DLC/expansion to me. I couldn't get myself to appreciate the game at all.

This game again looks like Far Cry 3 in a new setting. So far, though, it looks like I'll really love this setting.

Weird, 4 is easily better than FC3 in every way. Better enemies, better animals, better NPCs, better vehicles, better characters, better world-building, better story, more interesting terrain, better mission design. You also get the wing suit right away.

I think FC4 is in many ways the Fallout: New Vegas of the Far Cry series. FO3 left a better first impression than NV and FC3 left a better first impression than FC4. However, like FO:NV, FC4 got better the more you played it while FC3 got worse. If you didn't play much of FC4, you really ought to give it another shot.

Hope Tim is doing something in the vein of Fallout. I'd rather see a new CRPG in some setting other than high fantasy, particularly from him.

I have it from a former employee they are working on their own post apoc CRPG. Since Obsidian can't get Fallout they decided to make their own fallout like IP with the original Fallout devs.

Seeing as Tim and Len were Fallout I'm pretty fucking stoked if that's the case. Regardless, Tim is one of my fave game devs so it'll be day one for me regardless of what it is but a new post-apoc game from him would be win icing on the awesome cake!

Cake


Then you may also be excited to hear after this game, assuming it does well, there has been some talks in making another VtM game, a bloodlines spiritual successor if you will. Since Obsidian already has a working relationship with the new owners of the vampire IP it would make sense.

FYI

If Obsidian did make another Vampire game with Paradox, it most certainly would not be 3D. Paradox doesn't have the money to make a 3D RPG like Bloodlines. It would likely be a 2D, isometric affair which I'm fine with but a lot of people wouldn't be.

I wonder if this game will have any sort of post-launch DLC that they charge money for. Call me a literalist, but if you charge $14.99 for content not included in the original vanilla game... that's a fucking microtransaction.

Not really. Microtransactions refer to payments for things like loot boxes, in-game currency, early unlocks, etc. You're paying money in order to speed up progression. Paying money for meaningful new content is not a microtransaction.

Publishers love microtransactions because they don't have any real cost (aside from the initial system implementation). It's pure profit. DLC, on the other hand, requires developers to actually create content and that costs money.

I'll definitely play it, but I fail to see what's different about this game gameplay wise. Looks like just a different coat of paint.

Pretty much. I definitely got that feeling from Primal, which is probably why I got bored of it so quickly. The Far Cry formula is getting stale. FC4 was the best one but at this point, I think they need to mix things up a lot more.

Thief should have been a slam dunk. Go back and play 1 and 2. Modernize the mechanics but don't reinvent them. Create a compelling story. Ship it. Sell like gothcakes on Halloween. Shalebridge Cradle is one of the pinnacles of atmosphere and level design. It should have been an easy inspiration.

Pure stealth games don't sell enough to justify development costs these days. Publishers expect AAA games to sell at least 5 million copies within a year. Making a shinier version of Thief won't generate those numbers.

Also, Shalebridge Cradle is from Deadly Shadows which was the most hated Thief until the latest one was announced. The Thief community is not open to change and will shit on any Thief that isn't exactly like the first two. They crapped themselves when Deadly Shadows replaced the rope arrow with climbing gloves and they crapped themselves again when you could only use the rope arrow in specific locations in the latest Thief. In order to justify a AAA budget, Square would have to streamline certain mechanics and make combat a more viable option, at which point fans would start hating on the game before it even came out. This is exactly what happened with Deadly Shadows and the newest Thief.

Square isn't going to make a game that won't sell 5 million copies and will generate negative hype long before release.

Bethesda really needs to do a better job of marketing their games. Prey, Evil Within, Doom, Wolfenstein, Dishonored... they've made a lot of good games over the past few years but failed to give them the exposure they need to really succeed. EW2 is a significant improvement over the first game in many ways but it barely got any marketing.

Enough with the stupid battle royal nonsense, you can't shoehorn it very easily into an existing game and it usually turns into an disliked part of the game. Just a waste of developer resources.

What you just said is pretty much the exact opposite of what has actually happened. H1Z1 gained significant popularity when it added a Battle Royale mode (which is now the primary mode of the game). Same with Fortnite.

Making a Battle Royale mode for Dying Light seems like it would be pretty straightforward. The game already had co-op. Just turn on friendly fire and add some sort of time pressure factor. Bam, Dying Light Battle Royale. I could totally see this being successful.

FYI: This is the first game in the series, from 2011, not the 2016 Homefront: Revolution which was pretty good. I just grabbed it, so I have no idea if it is better or worse than the sequel.

I liked the sequel a lot more. The first game is basically just a lower-budget version of CoD. The multiplayer was apparently good but I don't think anyone plays it anymore.

Yup. PUBG's been top dawg since March consistently every fucking week after week after week...
No CoD, no AssCreed, no Middle Earth, no GTA, no Skyrim, no Witcher has been able to dethrone it. Sad but true.

PUBG has sold over 22 million copies in less than in a year. On PC alone. It's pretty insane.

What IGN thing? Anyway, good game. I picked it up ages ago for a fiver or something. Quite enjoyed it actually.


Could not disagree more. If you miss this, you will be fine. I'd call it 4th worst Xcom game behind enforcer, Xcom3 and interceptor.

As an XCOM game, it wasn't great. As a standalone game with no baggage attached, it was actually pretty decent. The setting was cool and the combat was interesting enough. The story also has one of the weirdest plot twists I've ever seen in a game.

There's a pretty good chance they're going to release the Steam Link 2.0 soon. It's standard to significantly discount previous hardware iterations when the next iteration is just around the corner.

That's a lot of laptops where little timmy installed Steam on Grandma's computer because he wanted to play minecraft.
I bet the difference between on-line an in-game is 3 to 1.

Okay? It's not like Valve was claiming otherwise. This statistic simply shows how many people are using Steam at the same time, regardless of what they are doing on Steam. Valve doesn't really care if you're playing games or not.

Also, Minecraft isn't on Steam.

Does it add a sense of pride and accomplishment by gutting everything in the franchise that made it interesting?

/snark

People are still hung up on this? Really? It's not like the original Prey was a critical or commercial success. Most people didn't care enough to play it and those that did thought it was just a solid shooter with some interesting gimmicks. Prey 2 had potential but we never saw more than a brief and heavily scripted demo. Who knows if the final game would have lived up to its promise.

What we did end up getting was a great spiritual successor to System Shock 2. If that's less important to you than an arbitrary title, you should probably reassess your priorities.

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.
