I installed Creator's Update early and haven't had any issues. It has a few nice enhancements. That being said, if you are like me and don't care about the new creator apps, there aren't any major changes.

I am looking forward to the Neon Update which will hopefully bring some nice visual enhancements.

News Comments > Gone Gold - Expeditions: Viking
3. Re: Gone Gold - Expeditions: Viking Apr 22, 2017, 11:00 Sacrifice
 
I've been playing Expeditions: Conquistador during its free weekend. I am liking it so far and I am probably going to buy it.

Reminds me of Heroes of Might and Magic, but with RPG and survival elements. Combat is turn based like Heroes and X-Com, but with the added ability to set up barricades and traps.

Vikings is certainly on my wishlist now as well.

News Comments > Grimoire Gets Greenlight, Due Next Month
18. Re: Grimoire Gets Greenlight, Due Next Month Apr 17, 2017, 19:13 Sacrifice
 
I have mixed feelings about this. As an older RPG gamer, I want to appreciate the classic style and gameplay. I loved Grimrock.

That being said, user interfaces have improved over the years for good reason. Grimoire just seems too busy with the actual zone taking up only a quarter of the screen.

"...and offers no player rewards."

Pardon?

Loot boxes still drop, any items unlocked in PTR are saved to the regular game.

Maybe he means competitive rank and that point system?

It is true that the loot boxes still drop, but anything gained on the PTR isn't transferred to the regular game.

I am not a huge racing fan, especially freestyle, but I still grabbed it. The critics give it a mediocre review, but the Steam reviews are positive

Unannounced project doesn't necessarily mean a brand new game. Some Overwatch players have been asking for a permanent co-op mode since that Halloween event. Maybe they are going to expand upon that idea: Left4Dead style co-op game in the Overwatch universe.

I like my dungeon crawlers and I was excited seeing the title. It was short-lived however. Isn't a trailer suppose to entice you to buy a game? This did the opposite. Is it just a long hallway of crippled monsters?

I hope this is true.

I enjoyed Sunless Sea, but it was slow to a fault.

Was there a mod that addressed this?

I didn't know this game even supported mods. So maybe?

I enjoyed Sunless Sea, but it was slow to a fault. I spent over 60 hours in the game and I don't think I had uncovered half the story.

I didn't mind the slow moving ship. I would say the income generation was too slow. After so many hours, I was only able to purchase a slightly more powerful ship and a few upgrades.

I pretty much stopped playing once I uncovered all the islands.

News Comments > Overwatch Tick Rate Increasing
13. Re: Overwatch Tic Rate Increasing Aug 13, 2016, 13:04 Sacrifice
 
Mordecai Walfish wrote on Aug 12, 2016, 21:50:
This is a very welcome change. I've rated each and every match played since release a 1/3 after I heard about how abysmally low their tick rate was. Lucioball's recent introduction has made it all the more apparent that the tick rate needs to be increased, with how much it looks like you're hitting the ball but actually not.

Really? Rating every game 1 after you learned that it was only 20 tick rate? Apparently you didn't notice it until after you learned about it? That is ridiculous.

I've been playing Overwatch since release. I agree that increasing the tick rate is nice and will provide a bit more accurate gameplay, but the game was more than playable before the increase.

Why there never was a sequel to ET blows my minds, even Quake Wars was worthy enough to warrant a sequel...but no, we got brink...

Enemy Territory was amazing. One of the first games where I joined a clan and did some online competitions. It is too bad they never made a sequel.

On the other hand, Brink was the last game I ever pre-ordered. It still saddens me when I occasionally notice it in my Steam library.

This Skyrim pricing inflation was heavily discussed on Reddit and generally dismissed as incorrect.

Only one unit per tile of V was a complete deal breaker for me. Capturing a city was about bringing a constant stream of single units rather than attacking it with large forces. It wasn't fun. It looks like they improved that a bit, but I don't feel like it'll be enough.

To each his own, but I prefer the one unit per tile mechanic. Made for more strategic maneuvering and easier to manage.

As others have mentioned, it is annoying how each new version is a step back in features until the expansions.

That being said, I like some of the ideas. The combined arms is interesting. I am curious to see what they do with multiplayer. We start games but often never finish them, at least with my semi-casual gamer group of friends.

This graphic overhaul is going to be controversial, but I actually like the simplified cartoony look. I think it brings clarity to elements on the map. I am going purely by the two screenshots though.
