the accpetable margin for products failing is like 3-4% the battery epxloding was like .1% so no it was not a real issue

There are levels of failure. 3-4% might be acceptable for minor defects out of the box. But every 25th or 30th product catching fire would be somewhat catastrophic.

Imagine if every 25th car or plane blew up.

All it really needs is a "creation kit" so i can mod all the crap outta the game

that should have been their highest priority as soon as the hype train started going off the rails, back when it was announced.. because if they had released something like that along with the game, it could have prevented much of the backlash or at least softened it to a huge degree

They should have had an open beta, and not kept so much stuff secret.

Still, I blame the rubes for buying into the hype and not waiting for reviews. It's simple people: in the digital age, there's no need to pre-order, there's no need to buy on the first day. Wait for reviews, then make an informed decision.

You might try Empyrion.

I started playing last night, and it has been a blast so far.

Great games on that list, but my God, how did NMS ever make it on there...? There really are a LOT of people who fall hook, line and sinker for bullshit hype.

I think the most amazing part about it is that it had no legs, so it was one of the top selling games even though it's sales window only lasted a week or so.

I bought nothing. The discounts were pathetic.

Lego games go on sale for $5, great time killers. Good value at that price too.

Great couch coop with the kids too. I own most of them.

All I bought in the "sale" this year was Abzu, and Factorio which wasn't on sale but I got about .75 off with trading card credits lol.

Got my wife playing Abzu. She loves it. Way to get a non-gamer into games.

    Blue, all I would change to the site is this:
    Give us an option to donate to you so we can either get a t-shirt or rid of ad's.
    Patreon?

    Beyond that: I'd love to see more editorials about your gaming habits (beyond solo'ing Rock Band with 4 instruments at once).
    Beyond that, I hope you are all safe as we ring in the new year, and hope/pray we don't have another 2016 for 2017. Love ya all good/bad!
    More doggy adventures and pics!

    I plan to celebrate the new year at home playing The Long Dark with a nice Chimay tripel.

    Which will come first:

    - Blue's well-deserved retirement

    - The ubiquity of self-driving vehicles such that a drinking and driving PSAs are no longer needed.

    Be safe everyone.

    including the interactive drama Firewatch

    Makes you wonder if the author even played Firewatch.

    Adding a female char to Mario is pretty simple. Doing it for FW would require rewriting the entire game.

    That's nuts. Boston is probably the most convoluted driving city in the US.
