Hunt Showdown i shall get later when there is more content...Looks good though...
And when it actually lets you play, once they fix up initial bugs. Rating is a pretty horrible mixed 66% because they had to put a cap on player numbers, since their servers are so buggy they couldn't handle the load from the first week sales numbers. If crytek doesn't fix that crap up ASAP, it will fix itself... by all the players abandoning it in early access, and giving it bad ratings. Basically anyone who actually GETS to play rates it positive, so sounds like it's a good game underneath. Although apparently the official recommendation for people who want to play with friends, is play random and hope you get your friend in your game, hahahahaha.
Also showing another hazard of not letting players host servers.

News Comments > More on Controlling Star Control
3. Re: More on Controlling Star Control Feb 24, 2018, 14:59 Dev
 
Timeline per the Q&A seems to be that the two guys started filing DMCA claims against Stardock, to not only stop distribution of SC1 and SC2, but also some DMCA against SC3. Then stardock had to respond with a lawsuit (presumably so a court could rule on who actually owned what). Then the two guys counter sued.

Also it's interesting that stardock spent a while developing the game and suddenly after decades the two guys suddenly decided to announce another SC game. Why couldn't they have done another SC years ago?

There's plenty of room for 2 SC type games in the market and I would have bought both of them. It's unfortunate it went this way.

Dunno why these two guys started all this. Stardock was carefully staying away from the aliens and story of the first 2 games. Like it's been dormant for what, a decade or two now, couldn't they have talked it out?

I admired the duo before, they released open source for Ur Quan Masters, and didn't stop that from going forward. And I love star control 2. I was thinking it was cool we'd get two star control type games, I'd buy them both. Now, who knows.

I just double checked. To clarify, these 7 are free for everyone including non subscribers until March 2nd. So blue's story is accurate, "free for all"

Only subscribers get the full set of 40+ in the trove.

Basically this is a "first taste is free" kinda thing.

Since they are DRM free downloads, you can keep them forever.

Comments I saw on the FB SMS story on other sites blamed the users for setting phone number in FB wrong. Turns out commenters were all idiots who as usual assume there's nothing that exists that's outside of their own life experiences.

This is part of their "Trove" program. As best I can tell, they are also offering another 40 or so titles in that that aren't time limited.

None are steam, all just direct DRM free downloads. So one could get 1 month of humble, then keep all the free downloads. Pay $12 for the headliner title (last month was Civ 6, previously there was xcom 2 one month) and get another 40 ish free

https://www.humblebundle.com/monthly/trove

Trine, Overlord games, torchlight games, limbo, shadowrun returns, ai war collection, bionic dues, volgarr, shelter are the ones that stood out to me.

Blue,
May want to update the story to mention the other 40 games in the trove, perhaps include this quote from the story you linked :)


" Active Humble Monthly subscribers get ongoing access to the full Humble Trove of over forty DRM-free titles, including our Humble Originals."

News Comments > Steam Wishlist Changes and Lunar New Year Sale
12. Re: Steam Wishlist Changes and Lunar New Year Sale Feb 16, 2018, 08:49 Dev
 
Only took about 10 years for someone to wheel their desk to the wishlist corner and improve it. Now it's actually useful... in some ways with the filters and sorting.

WARNING! Be careful doing what I did! Don't sort to review score and go remove all the bottom reviewed titles! Review score does NOT reflect the game's score as a whole. I think it's only recent scores. On obscure indie games this gives the impression some have never been reviewed, if you visit the steam page, they actually have been reviewed, just nothing recently.

Also watched the first two episodes of Altered Carbon. Great stuff.
I binge watched it. I enjoyed it, haven't read the books, though I will. Lots of deep moments and I like how there's a lot of explorations into societal and moral implications of the stacks.

Gabe isn't going to sell to MS. He loves his employees too much for that. Wheeled desks & flat management would go away if they sold.

wtf_man wrote on Jan 29, 2018, 19:37:
Steam however, I will drop in a heartbeat if MS buys them. (Which is fairly feasible for me since I've converted a majority of my game library to GOG... and would remain offline mode forever for the Steam games that I already purchased)
Doesn't work like that. It has to check in on occasion. I don't recall the details, but it wouldn't stay offline forever and let you play.

This is a bit misleading.

They still need 1 more Repub senate vote to pass this, THEN they need the same bill to pass the House, THEN they have to get the Prez to sign it.... sooooooooo, yeah.

Don't worry about me - I'd sign it in a heartbeat.
HEHEHE! Dude, if you were the president I imagine a lot more of us would be happy right now
If Prez were president, everyone would get a free game for voting on election day!

Prez/Snuggle Truck 2020

I'd vote and donate to that campaign

I'm wondering if they are just wanting a piece of the many millions CIG has brought in. Jokes on them, pretty sure that money has already been spent, lol.

PUBG is driven entirely by hype. I'll be happy when it falls off the list. No EARLY ACCESS / CROWDFUNDED / UNFINISHED title should have those kinds of numbers; especially above proven titles like GTA5, CS:GO, DS3, W3, and ACO.

Was that sarcasm? If not, it's just hit 1.0 and isn't early access anymore.

CJ_Parker wrote on Dec 22, 2017, 14:20:
By the way: Kudos to Valve (if it is somehow something they did and not just due to a lack of interest in the sale): This is the first Steam sale ever in the history of Steam sales without massive errors, 404s, slowdowns, database hiccups and all that shit that usually goes along with Steam getting hammered.

The only minor issue I had was, when you click on 'specials', and tried to go through the list, it would sometimes not populate the list correctly when clicking on the 'next' (page) button. It turned up a blank page for some reason.

But other than that it was pretty smooth sailing. Maybe a little slower than usual but much, much, much better than previous sales. Maybe it's also the lack of a retarded gimmicky mini game this year. If so please keep the sales game-gimmick-free. It's pretty nice when you can actually use the fucking client in the first place.
Yeah maybe they finally added the servers that the projections said they needed. Or wait... someone wheeled a desk over to server ordering corner.

So how are those comics awesome? Don't see it.

Also, the extra and hidden charges are going to get worse, with the rollback of the rules of disclosing all that... because it's too "onerous" for the ISPs.

Sounds like marketing speak for microtransactions to me.

Well yeah... they already put in single use DLC for single player games into I think it was the previous deus ex. Like literally you open the box and it's in that save game and no where else, and that's for single player.

Market has been saturated with card buying games for years, unless your name was Blizzard.

However, these kinda games are going gangbusters on mobile.

Who voted it game of the year !? ?

I don't remember seeing that before......
Nowadays no need for that, lots of companies self label.

However, it was a great game, so I suspect someone did.

Also this is one of the few successes I've seen with episodic release, and it was actually completed. (yeah, looking at you valve)
