For the life of me I will never understand this underhanded bullshit they pull with later releases for the PC over consoles.

Such bullshit!

Consoles are considerably easier to QA, and generate more income... I'm disappointed too, but it is what it is : )

WoW Token prices spiked again, as expected... Glad I got my $60 Blizzard Balance last week ; )

Between this and Dead Cells, metroidvanias are getting a LOT of love in the near future.

Can't wait to give this one a try.

Thanks for mentioning Dead Cells... Had never heard of it, but looks interesting, and is now on my wait list : )

Not enough details to really have a well thought out opinion, but I liked M:TG 15-20 years back, so I'm at least interested (which is why brands are worth so much)... But I'm also wary... I don't want to play another PC CCG, so the more they stay away from that, the better (for me)...

Unless...

This is just Etherlords 3... Then I'd buy the hell out of it ; )

Loved this game back then... But I wouldn't trust buying anything this old on Steam (as opposed to GoG, that actually tests shit).

Always liked the SpellForce games, though while I picked up the 'expansions' to 2, I never went through them...

Looking forward to 3... And updated engine is sorely needed, and looks good so far... Not launch day good, but I'll keep an eye on it ; )

Windows 10, the securer os.

I have no doubt it's the most secure Windows OS... But... It's still Windows... : )

I mean... Except against it's own malware... : )

Glad to see they hit this milestone... And for those that have yet to get it, it's currently at 50% off on Humble Store (12.49 USD).

As a fan of all three recent major ARPGs (D3, PoE, GD), I appreciate what each brings to the table/genre...

And I'm looking forward to the expansion... Which I hope/expect has new content along with the two new classes, and I'm eager to check out each (though also worried they'll be badly balanced initially, making later nerfs/buffs more painful).

News Comments > The Surge Released
19. Re: The Surge Released May 16, 2017, 21:45 Alamar
 
I'm 13h in, and still loving it...

As a massive Souls fan (have all + BB), I think it's great another company is making these kinds of games... And I agree with some of Quinn's points, in that, LOTF is a better 'experience' than souls games, in that, it feels like you're playing part in a story... Though LOTF has nothing on Souls replayability... I played through on all three 'classes', using weapons appropriate to that starting design, and it's varied quite a bit, but all three were fun ; )

The Surge continues that... There are 5 types of weapons, and variations within each type, but the advancement system doesn't lock you in, like it does with Souls games (minus those with respec systems). The various types of armor seem to make even less difference, but I guess that's pretty true in this entire genre...

In short, it's a great experience so far... The story is interesting enough, the graphics are great (for this genre), the advancement is good (The implant system is a nice way to add to it, and the trade-off vs energy usage is good), the fighting feels good (and gory, if you like that shit; loved Shadow of Mordor kills myself).

I'll admit it... When I saw, In Steam, that it was available... I considered, for half a second, to buy it just to refund it... I actually tried the demo on PS4 and was pretty disappointed...

And this is one way games are urged towards my, 'will play in a few years when it's $10' list...

Looking forward to The Surge in a few weeks though ; )

Here's a longer one for starters:

Disappointed with how the combat looks, including animations... But I like how the story is portrayed, and Skyrim has proven shitty combat doesn't ruin this kind of game for everyone ; )

Definitely need to see more of the advancement/abilities/etc, but it's on the watch list now at least ; )

Being a pc gamer for the last 30 yrs,i bought a xbox one to try the first one and loved it,but hated using a gamepad with it.

I had the opposite... I've always been VERY pro KB/M for FPS, but it came with my PS4, and it took me a day or two to get used to it, and I actually choose controller over KB/M in some other shooter games... Mouse is still better, but the comfort of the controller is worth it at times.
