I've enjoyed it for a change. Also, they are giving REAL payouts this time. Not 3 points for winning, but I was on a winning team and got like 800 points.

Let's not forget their constant need to cram every fucking windows update down your throat too. like how State of Decay 2 absolutely requires the latest build of windows or it wont even install.

Thats some bullshit right there. I totally wanted to avoid getting the creative update on my pc because of all the bullshit issues it brings with it. So, yea this just pisses me off eve more to no end.
Well yeah, that's probably mandatory with more than one game on windows store nowadays. Or it's a paid MS exclusive or something (which probably means no steam).

MS wants you to stay updated so they can go reset all the registry edits you've done to turn on privacy settings they want to move to enterprise edition. Things like that.

Sounds pretty cool, thanks for the info and the heads up link for the game! Anyone know how many times you have to play it, to be able to have all the choices?

Finished one ending. Appears to be 24 total endings. But you don't have to finish all of them as best I can tell.

I did a first impressions video of this back when it was new.

It's an interesting game where it's cartoony but deals with dark themes of war and betrayal. You end up playing the same story over many times but each time, you can unlock additional choices and places to visit. Ultimately, your goal is to make the best decisions to get the best ending.

The combat's nothing innovative but it's a really neat approach to story telling. I never finished it but did play it quite a bit after recording the video.

The devs made this free to drum up hype for the next game, Oversight, which comes out in the next week. Planning to stream it and probably do a video of that too. This was worth checking out for real money and for free, it's a no brainer.
Thanks! I was already going to add it, you've convinced me to play it too And added the next game on wishlist too (went ahead and entered the contest too, gave a screenshot of it on my wishlist).

Sad that the top two games came out more than a year ago.
Happy that CSGO is not on the list.

I canít remember the last time CSGO wasnít on the list.

Don't worry, valve still pulled in tons of money from skins and stuff from it.

News Comments > Hunt Showdown Content Patch
1. Re: Hunt Showdown Content Patch May 11, 2018, 21:26 Dev
 
I'd love to try this. But it's got a huge number of negative reviews... most of which say the gameplay is fun... when you can play it, because the servers and stability suck. And on a rogue lite type game with perma death, it would seriously suck to lose a run from a server burp or a game glitch.

So every couple weeks I go back and check the news... yep, still filled with them restarting game servers every few hours or couple days. This has been the case at least 3 months.
https://steamcommunity.com/games/594650/announcements?p=1
See for yourself, most of the 150+ news updates posted are about server restarts. Including announcing more restarts one each day this weekend.

I can see a few weeks, maybe even a month, but past that? Come on now. They have had plenty of sales and enough money to hire a couple smart consultants to fix their SQL crap, or help them spin up more cloud servers, or get a load balancer, or WTF ever is causing instability or memory leaks in the servers, or other issues. Completely inexcusable to take that long. Or even if they can't fix it, setup some redundancy (can anyone say virtual machines?) so they can run games on one server for a few hours, then stop anymore connections to it, wait for people to finish, route people to another server, reboot the first server, etc until everything is rebooted without any interruption. I do something similar with our Exchange server environment every month for windows server updates. One at a time. No downtime.

So until I stop seeing those server restart updates anymore, I'll wait.

The only three games I'm really waiting on are Dishonored 2, Far Cry Primal, and the XCOM 2 expansion. My numbers for those are $9.99, $5.99, and $19.99.

Per isthereanydeal.com there's been a sale on amazon for an xcom 2 war of chosen expansion for $10 total. Also I believe prior to release Greenmangaming had a sale on it.

Just gotta keep an eye out

There's actually a bug (for me at least) where occasionally the region selector picks Asia for me instead of NA. Make sure you check that every now and then, might be the reason you keep ending up with non-english speakers. I haven't run into Chinese players on NA servers for a while now after it being pretty bad a few months ago.
I've seen that same bug multiple times before and it's annoying! I was wondering why I had performance issues, turned out it was the lag from AS default. But anyway, I'm referring to being on NA servers and ending up with a team full of Chinese speaking people (even the 8 or 10 man teams on some events). Maybe it's because I sometimes play at weird hours or something.

It's long past due to just outright block Russian and China from Europe and NA, methinks.
And yet another keyboard warrior edge lord chimes in with yet more clueless angry white man xenophobia. impressive

Presumably he meant region lock PUBG, which I support. It would be nice to play with a team that speaks my language once in a while.

The fact they didn't include factory coolers from the git go is beyond stupid.
Actually, I think Intel's decision to go with thermal interface pad material on $1000 enthusiast CPU's (what do they call them now, HED or something?), rather than spending 5 cents on thermal grease, is what's beyond stupid. Why the frack should anyone have to relid a CPU?

10 VM's at once?! I must really be using my system wrong because the other day when I was using a Linux VM it nearly brought it to it's knees. I mean, a Core i5-750/2.8, 14gb DDR3 and a 1050ti/4gb isn't exactly shabby.

It's a Xeon E5-2690 v2 with 128GB of DDR3. It was specifically built so that I can use it to fully emulate stacked clusters before I rolled them out in to production. I also happen to game on it.
I knew it was going to be ram. 90% of time the limiting factor for VM's is ram

14gb vs 128gb

By contrast, Wozniak said, ďApple makes its money off of good products, not off of you. As they say, with Facebook, you are the product.Ē

That's bullshit on so many levels. Apple datamines the shit out of people too. And they make lousy walled-garden products that are environmental nightmares. Which they do by exploiting consumers and workers alike. Apple is hella more evil than FB IMO.
But keep in mind the historical context, he hasn't been at apple in forever. At the time he was, it was more about good products, and not so much datamining. I think he just has rose colored glasses from that time frame.

Probably through rockstar directly like mine is. The social club thingy. Probably got it through one of the same sales I got my copy

and I still haven't played it..... Laugh2

The story mode is pretty spectacular. I didnít find the multiplayer very engaging, as the shooting/driving is vastly inferior to more focused titles. If you can get it on sale, the single player is worth going through.

The worst part.... I OWN IT!!!

Just haven't gotten around to playing it! Lol_dies
Shhhhh don't tell anyone, I'm the same way

Glad they're going back to just doing a remake. This "Re-envisioning" thing they were sliding into had my hackles up. Who are you to re-envision one of the greatest games of all time? Keep your hands off.

Yeah, it worked out terribly for XCom.

Thing is though, there's been a bunch of remakes for xcom (yes I realize the sarcasm in your post, but discussing the point of remakes vs re-imagining).

They have ranged from completely faithful remakes, to complete reimaginings from various companies under various names, including some kickstarters.

I am glad though that firaxis did a good job and it was repaid with success.

But anyway, there haven't been a bunch of similar things for system shock. So yeah, I think a close remake is a good first move.

This is just typical troll Boll looking for free publicity...and sadly getting it. He doesn't - and can't - own the rights to the word "rampage" and he knows it, ergo, trolling. Note the insult to Trump. He's hoping to sucker Trump in to a Twitter war to really ratchet up the free publicity.
That's actually a hilarious idea. Don't know if he will respond, but if anyone would it's him.
