Also, 12,231 people have rated the game on Steam.
The majority are labelled EARLY ACCESS REVIEW.
Have to wait and see what leaving the EA program does for sales and reviews.

70% so far based on launch reviews.

Sounds like the campaign is just too hard. Hopefully that gets tweaked.

I bought this back in Early Access, probably a year ago. If you like building massive forts, and having enemies run up to those forts and get annihilated by your insane defense(or destroy your town because your plan was flawed) then this is probably the game for you.

To be fair, I haven't played it for awhile; I had 20+ hours in the EA version, which was basically a sandbox only mode(timed). I'm looking forward to the missions, should be awesome!

I think I put it aside during EA right before they added the trains.

same. it was an awesome zombie defense game. do we get the full version, we that bought early access?

From the announcement:

"At last, They Are Billions reaches version 1.0. We are leaving the Early Access and the great Campaign, The New Empire, will be available for all players."

The Boys may be watchable.

Karl Urban is always watchable.
Like in DOOM movie?

Especially the Doom movie!

Actually, that movie deserves it's own place in Hell to torture poor souls.

Lumberyard at heart of Amazon Game Studios' development woes…

Chris Roberts said there was no problems with Lumberyard. Problem, Amazon?

You trust what Chris Roberts says?

Of course! I'm a Star Citizen Concierge member, and Legatus Pack owner. He'd never steer me wrong!

Sorry Tipsy, sarcasm is difficult to do in text only.

'Flesh-Eating' Bacteria May Be Spreading to Beaches Once Thought Off-Limits. Here's Why.

"And a 60-year-old man who went crabbing and ate a dozen crabs from the Delaware Bay developed progressive swelling in his right leg. He required surgery to relieve pressure in his leg. But his condition worsened and spread to his other limbs; doctors eventually needed to amputate all four limbs, though the man did survive."

Good times.

Can Marijuana Help Cure the Opioid Crisis?

TL;DR: "Correlation does not mean causation." More research needs to be done.

Square Enix CEO Yosuke Matsuda interview -- Betting big on The Avengers game - VentureBeat.

This game is a huge risk, moreso than usual. People are so used to the MCU versions of these characters, that it will be hard for them to accept these similar yet different versions. Had they gone back to the comic book roots, I feel they may have had more success.

I took a chance and installed the game and I have to say that I find it charming. There is no combat to speak of but tons of exploring. The mechanics are challenging enough to be fun but not so challenging that you feel punished for making a mistake (especially in landing).

I've thoroughly enjoyed playing it because it's a lot like ATS where you plan it and just zen out.

Outer Wilds is another game from Annapurna Interactive, and offshoot of Annapurna Pictures. They do non-traditional games like Edith Finch and Gorogoa, both of which are excellent.

The comments in that lobbying story are funny.

"'Kudos to the board of Traverse City Light and Power and the residents of Traverse City for being brave and making this investment in their community.'

What kind of a fucked-up country do you guys have if a city has to fear a goddamn corporation?

The proper order should be, by decreasing importance: people, governments, corporations."


Sanest comment in the whole thread^^

Corporations are people, my friend. And rich ones at that. That makes them #1 automatically.

The Sharp Decline In Original Movies From 1980 To 2018.

Not sure what to think here. The chart shows the increasing domination of films "Based on Previously Existing Fictional Work." I hate remakes and soft reboots of previous films. I'm lukewarm on sequels. However, I'm all for making movies based on other media such as comics or novels or short stories. That's how we got Game of Thrones, The Expanse, Altered Carbon, and Arrival.
I'm more concerned about the decline of original video games.

There are gobs of original video games. Look at Anthem, wasn't that great?

Seriously though, all the good original stuff comes from indies.

Given that Russia wants to ban the Chernobyl miniseries, I'm surprised they're letting this proceed. /s

Russia, you never go full Streisand.

To be fair, there are lots of inaccuracies with the miniserie ( see
this ), but to go to such lengths is a bit nuts...
She missed the part about the show being a DocuDrama.

Yea, I've been seeing a lot online lately about how the show wasn't 100% accurate. Like... no shit? It got everything right that it needed to get right. People enjoy nitpicking I guess.

I'm reminded of the Steve Jobs movie. Someone close to Jobs (supposedly Steve Wozniak) said of the movie, "None of it is true, but all of it is true." It's possible to capture the essence of something while changing the details to create a better narrative experience.
