You are right, it'd be nice if people all around de-escalated. Please inform the police to stop treating the people they ostensibly exist to protect as the enemy, killing and assaulting them at will.

However you, and TenNapel, are making the same prejudiced mistake that seems to be occurring quite often, sometimes deliberately: confusing the actions of some statistically insignifcant portion of violent rioters with what has been an overwhelmingly non-violent (on the protestor side) movement.

I know, it's human to have a hard time to separate individuals from a group, mentally, but it's something everyone has to work on, so you don't end up judging many by the actions of a few. It's easy to get confused by this last bit, as right wing media loves to focus on an individual bad actor and claim all the millions of protestors across the country are the same way.

Perhaps I am misunderstanding you and I welcome some clarification. However, it seems to me that in the first part of your post you are doing the very thing you are criticizing in the latter part of your post. That is, you are assuming all police are bad rather than a smaller subsection (which definitely exists and is a problem).

I was looking at the list of games and I don't see a single game I want to try (that I don't already own). Unlike others, I am not against using another service. However, it is not a good sign when you can't even get me to sign up for the free week.

Wow, I forgot about Solitaire 3D. It has actually been around for many years, but I guess this is the first release to Steam. Also, it is solitaire with 3D graphics. It doesn't have any unique 3D gameplay (which was the impression I initially got from the news writeup). Anyway, I remember it being a decent solitaire package with over 100 variants of the card game.

It looks like an interesting Action RPG with some base-building elements.

Well, the reviews aren't very good... Seems they should have priced it at $15 or so along with the Goat and Goose games, not $40, with how little content there is.

I agree that $40 is a bit too much, but I read a bunch of reviews and I would say the consensus is "good, but repetitive after a while".

I feel as though the total combined cost of the games isn't that important of a stat. How much are they paying a developer to release a game for free? If it was an average of $50,000 each, the 108 games would be a combined total cost of 5.4 million.

I'm sure it depends somewhat on the type of game. I would assume Grand Theft Auto cost them more than an indie game like Into The Breach. Whatever the case, I would think it is a nice income boost for indie developers who released their game a few years ago.

I also loved the original game, but like many, I am anxiously waiting for the full release before taking the plunge.

The reviews seem to be hovering around 7/10. Good, but not great. Still, for $10, you probably can't lose if you are a fan of the previous games (like myself).

I don't think Shadow Tactics is that linear, with the exception of the final part of the last level. There are so many different combos with the characters' various skills and a player just needs to be creative.

Whatever the case, Desperados III looks like an interesting evolution of Shadow Tactics. It looks to have more gunfights (which makes sense for the setting). I always wait for reviews, but I am definitely keeping a close eye on it.

After that disaster Commandos 2 remake, I've lost all faith or desire for a new Commandos game. I hope it's gonna be good though.

On the bright side, Desperados 3 is looking awesome. Damn I wish I played it while I was at PAX. I watched some play it and it looked good. I just wasn't into holding controllers/mice/keyboards with a potential death virus on the loose.

I am not overly excited about a new Commandos game either. Desperados 3 is by the same developer as Shadow Tactics, so I am much more excited about that (and I never played the earlier games).

Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun is the best recent game in the real-time tactics genre. Hopefully, the new development team for Commandos take lessons from that game.

To be clear, Operencia came out on Epic Games on Mar 8, 2019. I am not anti-Epic, but the announcement makes it look like the game is a new release.

I always get the Outer Wilds and the Outer Worlds confused.

This game, Outer Wilds, is an indie game reminiscent of Subnautica (but in space).

The Outer Worlds is by the developers behind the early Fallout games and it is an evolution of that.

I'd be willing to give it a try if it was free-to-play, but I wasn't interested in paying $40 (or whatever it was) to try it out. These games are usually cheaper (if not free) and they make money with other methods (like selling decks).

Umm... okay. As a child from the Atari age, I am curious about this. However, I can't imagine a hotel based on a console from the early 80s will do well.

I was a fan of the original MST3K, but I just couldn't get into the new show for some reason. I think the humour was more slapstick than witty and most of the jokes just didn't land for me. The original show was hit or miss for me as well though.

Well, I grabbed it and played it for a couple of hours yesterday. It had been on my wishlist on Steam for a while.

I like the visual style and enjoy the gameplay. However, it isn't very deep and I don't see it lasting for long on my playlist. Glad I got it for free in the end.

The general consensus among the reviews is that Fallen Order starts off strong, but quickly loses steam. It is also how I felt about the Battlefront II campaign, which I bought with a decent sale (fortunately). I think I will wait for a decent sale on Fallen Order as well.

I wish they would simply combine different editions of the same basic game*.

I've never played DayZ, but I thought it was just a straightforward multiplayer zombie survival game. Where do sex, drugs, and crime come into play? I can maybe see drugs for painkillers and such, but actual drug use?
