Don't forget XCOM2 for lowest sale it's ever been, $12.
It's the bonus for subscribing to humble monthly. Subscribe and then set a reminder to cancel in second week of Feb.

As it's the early game, can't you just sub for the month, the cancel immediately, getting XCom2 now, the other ~5 in a few weeks and no threat of extra payment?

This 'trailer' didn't do much for me, but it linked to a gameplay one at the end... Looks interesting... Going on the watch list now ; )

never got into descent... seemed like a game trying to make the most of its technical limitations (underground tunnels, no physics) but IMO it was not a fun result

always preferred Magic Carpet ... now that would be a good reboot

Magic Carpets were great games... There have been a few hobby developed attempts over the years, including my own, but they die off before getting anywhere near completion, including my own heh.

I would love to see a 'real' company take that style and do something with it.. With the crap ton of voxel/terrain-deformation going on these days, I'm not sure why it hasn't happened... MC had it's drawbacks of course (repetition of all Bullfrog games really), but it could be fun ; )

I still have my original dreamcast game, lots of memories with that game, I remember really liking driving the fork lift lol..

For some reason I couldn't seem to get into 2 but maybe I need to revisit.

I still have my original disc too... But I didn't end up liking it, at all, so I've played it about an hour...

Sci-fi Dark Souls? Yes please... Not a fan of the glitching screen effects though...

Noticed the 'souls' multiplier in the bottom right, and I'm wondering if it's made by Lords of the Fallen people.

Edit: Yep... Deck 13... I had no issues with Lords of the Fallen, and thought it was a great take on the Souls style gameplay.

Edit x2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?list=PLzQNCgQ0GV7ar47tm5CWLFatSbqwgTIXx&v=TGK4KITyluY for some detailed goodness... I am now hyped... : )

Hmmm... Telling myself to stick with the BF guy for a bit... So I head to Lab... Belly of the Beast drops, which the 36% Inc Life would be great for my RF/Ray build heh...

Got to 49 with my Blade Flurry Assassin.
We're all Blade Flurry Assassins!! I'm only level 30, but I plan to at least try for 24 challenges this league. Also, I was so excited to log in right away and get the nice simple name "Flurio". I've been going around to town folk and saying in Antonio Banderas' voice, "I am Flurio, much blade, so flurry." It really adds to the immersion.

56 here... Ya, some of the Breaches are so satisfying... Others are quite the quick death heh... Found one of the bosses so far, and he killed me 3 times (it was close to the entrance) before I found out he can't even be killed... But at least I got the 'Achievement' credit for it I guess.

I'm actually really underwhelmed by BF... I played some Scorching Ray before the buff and found it great... Though, being the first char in the League, all my gear has been mostly crap, and my resists need some love. BF has it's moments of course, but it hits fairly softly so far... Will see what the next set of Ascendancy points do for me.

hahahaha... That was great... Typical Shooter mentality is, 'Shit, I have this crappy <insert melee weapon>... Where do I get my first pea shooter?'...

The whole name thing still turns me off, but I like what I'm seeing... Reminds of some of the mechanics in BioShock, and a few other shooters, which is a good thing ; )

There was a lot of hate on for this game when it was fresh, but I enjoyed it quite a bit ; )

I'm really curious about the Duke version... Unless the game actually 'bleeps' out the cursing... Unlikely considering the original is pretty 'adult oriented'...

That's gotta be a good deal of re-work though, as the main character is seen/heard a lot in the original...

I closed everything else when updating... Because driver updates can still set the resolution to 1024, and it messes up windows so many times... So instead, it decides to fuck over the icons on my desktop in a weird way... By weird, I mean, it set them all to every 4th row/column... I only have 5 or so that are in specific spots, but it's still stupid annoying.

Hrm, the prices in general weren't great, but I've already given in and bought about 8 games this sale.

Dark Souls 2, Dragon's Dogma, Windward, Star Ruler 2, then the big ones, MGS V:Phantom Pain, and Rise of the Tomb Raider.

Shen DLC for XCOM2 and Planetary Annihilation:Titans also, I believe.

The queue gorges itself, chuckling as it moves farther and farther away from completion.

If you can get a refund on Dragon's Dogma, it's this month's Humble Monthly 'top' pick... So for $12 USD, you'll get that, immediately, and another 5-7 games in a week.

kinda curious what gems you linked with it.. I tried the skill on a totem and was seriously UNimpressed by its ability to kill things.. thats on a tabula with a few support gems, bought on a lev 90 char, given to a lev 70 char , tested in a lev 60 area. could reliably kill zombies.. if they came one at a time..

that said RF is the only build it might be useful for , for a few % extra dmg from the -fire res mod. slooowly building up to a whopping -24%
still.. instead of waiting for it to tickle things you might simply use a different spell, actually do some damage and proc for example element equilibrium for much greater resistance reduction..(-50% instant)

Ray is linked with Controlled Destruction and Elemental Focus... Both of which are pure buff... The drawback don't apply to Ray anyways... Also Faster Casting for faster stacking damage/debuff, Improved Burning and Rapid Decay... Using Orb of Storms to proc Elemental Equilibrium, Curse On Hit (Currently Flammability), and with Inc crit strikes for Elemental Overload...

Build or Check ZiggyD's Google Doc... Currently 61 with not great gear, and still wiping out groups with one sweep.

Tipsy: If you mean Fire Damage Leech, Ray (and I think all DoT damage) can't Leech. Which I guess is another reason it's an RF build, since you get many of the % regen nodes (~11% total, then 4% from standing in consecration from Inquisitor).

I've been enjoying the new Scorching Ray ability... Started out a bit sluggish (in part compared to crazy good early game leveling uniques for melee skills, and my lack of +spell damage early on), but it's pretty low mana cost, so throwing 3-4 support gems at it didn't cause me to be out of mana all the time...

The skill is a bit clunky at times, but when it works, I'm basically just waving it past a group of mobs over half a second, and they all start burning for 1.9s.. Rares don't always die in that sweep, but a bit of concentrated fire helps that...

I've never had so little trouble with the Lab boss though... Great concentrated damage, and I didn't insta die to a charge/projectile because of all the extra life/regen in that build.

I'm using a build based on ZiggyD's RF/Ray Inquisitor, and this is the first time I've actually gotten to play RF, because it takes so much regen and fire res investment, I would just throw it on for 2s and wonder how people can use it... Now that I'm using it effectively, it's great, both from a 'run past small mobs and they die', and the huge dmg buff to Scorching Ray : )

Still won't likely make it far enough to do Uber Lab though, but we'll see if the content progression changes coming up change any of that... If Atlas only made me spend an extra few hours in maps, I don't see the other stuff doing enough for me.

This is a good change, but I would love to see a gameplay video also being a requirement... And the order of the vids are fucked for so many game... I don't want to see your newly added character/DLC before actual info about the base game. The last part has always made me wonder if Steam just didn't support re-ordering vids.

News Comments > Book of Demons Demo

I picked this up a few days ago on Chrono.gg for about the current sale-again price going right now...

In short, it's an action RPG... It's not as 'deep' as other Action RPGs, but I've had a ton of fun so far (just beat the foozle for the first time)... And I'm eagering awaiting the new classes and other planned content..

I highly recommend it, but you may want to try the demo first... It is a bit quirky, from a story/humor and control perspective... So it's great they have a demo to see if that's good for you.

I also had zero technical issues with it, so it's one of the most stable EA titles I've tried.

20-30 hours of doing the same fucking repetitive shit I've been doing since the game launched.

NO. MORE.

This is no more or less true than just about any other game... So go do the same shit in a different one ; )

The last time I dropped my Galaxy S4, it 'encouraged' me to upgrade to a new phone, which at the time, was the Nexus 6, while going out of stock, which I realize makes my whole post pointless... Nevertheless...

I really like the Nexus 6, and I imagine the updated model is also nice. The size difference is noticeable, and every time I pick up the wife's S4, I'm shocked at how 'tiny' it feels. No problems with it so far, but I'm sure at some point, I'll drop it and it'll again 'encourage' me to upgrade ; )
