A review can be unfair, when it's not criticizing the game on the basis of the game itself, but for example on the political stance of the reviewer (e.g. "too much SJW in the effin game").

And that sort of criticism is completely fair. I'm not buying a game for you to espouse you political point of view. If that's what you did, then yeah, it's going to get slammed.

Or on the basis of a fundamental misconception of the intended game design (this shooter is a horrible RTS)

You can't fix stupid. And if it isn't clear what your game is to begin with that's your own damn fault.

Or overlooking basic features. An example for the latter was a "professional" review for Titan Quest from a magazine, where the reviewer hated the game for walking great distances to the last village/merchant and back again. He simply overlooked the teleport feature, ignored the NPC in the starter village explaining this feature, overlooked the big shiny, noisy round thing right next to him.

Well than it really wasn't self-evident, was it? I can't even count the number of games where this is an issue. You play through half of it before you find out that you can do XYZ. That's poor design. So yet again, completely fair to criticize.

Or simply not being able to play the game, like this infamous review for Cuphead, where the reviewer wasnt familiar with basic platformer mechanics. Or using a controller. Or both.

How is that not fair? A person shouldn't have to be an experienced gamer to try a game and understand how it works - at a basic level - inside of 10 minutes. Unless the devs definitely state that a controller is required and the game isn't suited to new gamers, it's fair criticism.

There really is a thing like an unfair review. And instead of faking positive reviews to "balance the score", Valve should give developers the possibility to respond to any Steam review. Like "I am sorry that you didnt like our game, but have you tried X or Y?" Then Valve can end all business with certain devlopers for insulting reviewers

Devs can respond to any review they like. I've been banned from certain game forums for panning a game from hyper-sensitive devs. So what about that? They're allowed to skew results by outright banning people and shutting down all dissent. The assholes who did The Long Dark are notorious for that. They were banning people left, right, and center for any hint of criticism. And the game is a complete POS. So no, there is no such thing as an unfair review with the sole exception if you lie outright and actually haven't played the game at all, and you can't do that on Steam anyway. Shifting blame is what people who do poorly do. It's everyone else's fault but theirs. Rolleyes

It's a good little time waster. It's definitely worth $5 - which I think I paid for it in an earlier bundle - so free is sweet. Music is really good in it.

Drool! Bit sad they're saying it's going to be more of an action game than RPS though.

I'm not quite sure how anyone can look at this example and claim "capitalism" is the solution to all market issues. If you get rid of all the government regulation on business, as so many conservatives claim they want to do, you'll see this happening a lot more often in any kind business where there is a limited source for the product or service.

If there was an actual free market this would never happen. So much for the claims from the right about America's "free market capitalism". Oh and generic version is available in socialist Canada for a mere $33 bucks? God, socialism is so evil! Preventing robber barons from capitalizing off dying infants!

Stylized art is nice. Too bad it's a griefer/cheater game.

Another PVP game? doesn't anyone know how to make a good SP game without all the bullshit PVP attached?

For SP survival have you tried The Long Dark? It's pretty good. Also, The Solus Project, if you like your survival mixed with a bit of sci-fi. Other SP games in this genre which I'm looking forward to are The Flame in the Flood and Subnautica. I own the latter, but am waiting to play it until I get a VR rig purchased.

Long Dark. No. It should be avoided like the plague. Solus Project? It's ok. Flame and Flood. Enh, it's a good little time waster tablet type game but no great shakes. Subnautica kicks ass!

There are three mods that are active, look in the workshop and install these three mods.

hidden_hats
LitMan Item Stack & Container Size
LitMan Weight

In this order, the way Exiles works for mods they have to be placed in this order how they are on the server side.


yeah that's not a pain in the ass or anything

Its not, and your making it sound like it is, how about trying it first before complaining about it.

The Workshop is built in to the game, its very easy to get the mods.

It is that they have to be in order. That's just ridiculous.

"He came into the office and just fell over as I was about to examine him," Dixon said. "I thought he'd had a heart attack so I told the nurse to call 911 and get an EKG on him. As she was opening his shirt, she said, 'he's got a great big tick on his chest.' I told her to pull it off and he began to rouse almost immediately."

So there was a big tick on the guy's chest for a week and he didn't notice it? Yeah, I'm gonna call BS on that one. And after a quick bit of research it seems that this highly unlikely to happen in adults, mainly children, dogs or anything smaller, though you will feel the symptoms of fatigue, weakness, etc. Still, I agree the various govts out there need to be doing a metric fuckton more about tick eradication.

Yeah, just as important as "The Cloud" was a few years ago. Everyone and their dog just had to be in on "The Cloud". So when AI doesn't pan out over the next couple of years they'll all be moving along onto the next trend. Same with all the blockchain bullshit.

They already make money through partnerships. They made over half a billion dollars last year alone. So they're not doing stuff for "free". If it's a real issue, and it's not, why not allow people to buy the browser? Charge people something nominal like $5 a year for patches/updates. Problem solved that doesn't involve advertising.
