Towerfall, member of the infamous "Indie PVP battle game with no online mode" club, it's such a great game too.

At least if you buy this game on Steam you can now use the remote play together thingy and have actual online fun with friends. I mean the game is good, and is certainly worth money but getting it for free on the EGS is fine. Just remember there is no online there at all where as Steam has the option for the remote play stuff now.

I'm confused on the cross platform play, how are console players going to respond to continuously getting annihilated by PC players?

Simple, controller players on console are matched with controller players on PC, and mouse/keyboard on console are also matched with mouse/keyboard on PC. You simply opt into this system, or opt out if you so wish (and thus get annihilated all the time I'd imagine).

Looks just like the original and worse than some mods... What am I missing?

I'm not sure why they bothered with this to be honest. As I understand things, the code for the game was lost right after the original PC release back in 99 or whenever it was. So any improvements made to the game since then aka this version, is just upscaled or uprezzed models and some tweaks here and there to the visuals. They have no access to the backgrounds, lighting and shadow systems and whatever else might be under the hood. Unless they found someone to actually unpack the code or backwards engineer it (or hired someone good with the current codebase) its just another version of the near 20 year old PC version as it is.

News Comments > Bigben Announces Three More Epic Exclusives

Plus, WRC 8 was listed on Steam for almost a YEAR at this point, and now literally less than 14 days before release, they pull it to be an EGS exclusive. That's some shady crap and I'm sorry I won't support garbage like that. Normally I haven't had any issue with EGS (Hades says hello I guess) but garbage like his really irks me. Hey Bigben why not just wait until launch day when people are waiting for the game to unlock on Steam and then pull it for EGS? That'd work out well for you!

One thing I'm a little worried about for BL3 is that a HUGE chunk of the charm and awesomeness from BL2 came from Handsome Jack. Will they be able to capture that same magic again for their new bad twins duo? Without their main BL2 writer still there?


The way Pitchford said that Jack was dead, kinda hinted that he might not be dead, but that's just how I took his way of saying it. I'm sure he's not coming back, but you never know in a game series (especially this one). That being said, if the evil bandit twins can even remotely come close to Jack's charm etc, I'm sure the game will be fine then. If they suck as characters then well, its just another looter shooter with no story then.

Last time i tried Dirt Rally, it was a microtransaction nightmare. I was sorely disappointed.

Yeah not sure what game your talking about - but Dirt Rally has zero microtransactions in it. You pay for the game, you get the entire game. Dunno if Dirt Rally 2.0 is going to follow that same line, but Dirt Rally itself is a full game right out of the box so to speak.

I go months and months between matches sometimes, and in public servers I usually have a great time. I find the KF community is awesome most of the time, offering help and advice, and almost always giving out dosh (money) when you ask or need it.

As for going in totally blind, yeah you should be fine.

There's been bots in the game for a couple of months now at least. Sure it was only training mode stuff at first but now they fill out multiplayer matches and you can join players vs. bot matches in a playlist, along with making a custom match with as many bots as you want and open it up to others.

Sigh, I wish they'd do the same for Armageddon. I know most people hated that game - but I thought it was quite fun. I actually finished RF:A but never quite finished RF:G. Still, a remastered version of Guerrilla, maybe now I'll finish it.

Warhammer 40K Inquisitor Martyr is an ARPG and its been out in EA for months now (getting close to final release). Its from the Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing devs, so yeah. Chaosbane is not the first ARPG set in that universe.

Yea, I bought this when they first started to sell it on their web site. Played it a little. been also avoiding this one so I dont get burned out when it goes live. But its been a fun game too. just a little disappointed in their approach to how Coop works.

They opted to not have the Campaign Coop. only missions.

Bummer!!

Yeah not having the campaign fully coop capable is a bummer, but at least there is coop. And aren't the missions you can do in coop randomly generated etc, so you'll always have something to do no? And I get you about not wanting to get burned out on the game before it even comes out. I've only played the game a handful of times now, usually when big patches come out - to see what's changed and if it ran better on my rig. Thankfully it runs great for me now, and combat etc feels way better. I am indeed looking forward to the final release.

Warhammer 40K is the sci-fi universe, regular Warhammer is medieval fantasy.

Oh, when Blue said "fantasy Warhammer universe" I just figured that meant 40K lol I guess not then. Probably should have read the rest of the story it seems I dumb dumb.

It's not 2143, so the only real question here is "how disappointing is it?"

Man I've give both my nuts for a sequel to 2142. Still one if not my favorite Battlefield games ever. I mean, 1942 was terrific but it hasn't aged so well now, but Battlefield 2 was amazing and still is. 2142 was like that, just with lasers and giant mechs. I don't know how long its gonna take DICE to go back to the future, if they ever do it.

Anyone hear a confirmation on if that rumor that this was coming to Steam is true or not?

My friends and I want to try this, but we don't want cancer from the Microsoft Store.

Its coming to Steam for sure, especially when they get error messages pop up during a live stream recently telling them that Steam isn't connected Here's a screengrab from the stream itself someone posted on the Steam forums. The video in question was removed from Twitch (I guess for obvious reasons?) so all there is is this now. Also, from some people talking the SoD website also states the game will come to Steam at a TBD date in the future aka MS exclusivity deals.

Yeah I had a blast with it for about 40 hours or so as well. I did enjoy the end game stuff for a bit, but man its really lean. Still, I would go back since I had so much fun just shooting stuff over and over. I'll wait until a price cut or sale at some point down the line - and jump back in then.

Don't you just love it when someone posts fps and "everything maxed" but fails to mention system specs.
quad 1080Ti

If you didn't get max on that set up, I'd get my money back lol

Loved the game, right up until the game turned into the RTS it really is. Not sure why Double Fine literally hid the fact that the game is an RTS most of the time, but whatever. It was years ago, I got over it lol Still, pretty fun game and I recommend it, especially if you are a metal head or like rock.

Not gonna lie, that trailer got me pumped for this game. I'm super excited to see them return to WW2 as it is, but this looks like a legit good game to me. The story seems good as well, which is always a plus in a CoD game. I just hope the entire SP isn't set piece after set piece after set piece.

Some of you might like this then, its a 2 part PAX West awesomefest celebrating The Witcher's 10th birthday - hosted by good ole boy American hero Danny O'Dwyer himself. With some of the big wigs from CDPR on stage with him, its pretty good. The sound is a bit low, but if you raise the volume on your PC/whatever or download the video or audio straight up, its easily fixable.

Even though in the end the Van Helsing games were still buggy by the end of life patches - they were still awesome and fun ARPG's. Not to mention the co-op and multiplayer was fun as well. Deathtrap - same thing just tower defense.

This is basically Van Helsing as someone said earlier just with a Warhammer 40K skin and some different mechanics surrounding that. It is buggy, and stuff isn't in yet obviously. Still, I'm having just as much fun with it as with the other games from NeoCore. I just worry the game will never finish being patched out.

Also, just today there have been like 3 patches. So yes, this isn't a moneygrab or anything like that. These guys are a known quantity (however good or bad that is) and you can be almost certain the game will come out of EA finished (besides the mentioned buggy stuff their games usually have).
