After seeing this in the console news section earlier this morning I followed some links and found somewhere stating that owners on PC of the original will get this as a free upgrade. Having trouble finding where I saw that atm.

This is bullshit, I paid full price for this game 10 years ago, and now it is free to play. UGGGGG!! DAMN YOU EPIC STORE!!
That's not what people complain about, but you do you if that tickles your fancy boat.

Riahderymnmaddog is the prince of hyperbole and biting satire so much so that the Poe's Law wiki actually references him.
But it's still funny when he trips up a forum regular.

My point is still valid Kool-Aid drinker.

Stop listening to all the idiotic outrage over nonsense.

Always listen to constructive criticism (but then decide whether it's applicable).

One thing (of many) the LoTRO game did right (played it ages ago (no meta-pun intended)) was you never "died" from battle. You just became too severely wounded and "passed out". This meshed with the low-fantasy lore.

I bet this is going to be another - you're the chosen one; brought back as part wraith to end the evil threatening ME.... unkillable just like every other player you see bunny-hopping around you...

News Comments > Steam Summer Sale Concludes With Giveaway
24. Re: Steam Summer Sale Concludes With Giveaway Jul 10, 2019, 16:48 Drayth
 
As with everything it's up to them what to do with the data. Developers do have motivation to get their games sold sooner rather than later before other games absorb up hype, or eclipse their own game. A ton of wish lists with no one biting could mean that sweet low low price you're aiming for happening sooner rather than later.

Probably more frequent but less deep sales, but I enjoy the service it provides and video games themselves enough to not worry about something for $14.99 vs $11.99.

Note I don't use it with AAA publisher games however (easy enough to track those anyways). For indie pre-release games it helps show the publisher there's demand for the game, so a tight budgeted one may get more funding, or not axed.

Yeah but once EGS replaces Steam, everything will be so great, guys! Just wait and see! Tim Sweeney loves us, he really does!

I'm more concerned about them drying up the market and killing off GOG.

If they kill GOG Imapissed.

And sacrifice frame rates on those future 1444440hz 1080p monitors?? No wai! RTX: Off

I recall Alan Wake being over the shoulder 3rd person with a dot shooting setup a little like early Hitman games, with some inertia when you run and change directions. Also with the flashlight debuff mechanic. Your character wasn't supposed to be an ultra elite soldier though, I think they purposely designed the movement with the 'human' animations of changing direction etc. (ie. slowdown) on purpose. I can see those animations REALLY pissing people off who wanted faster responding controls though.

I don't remember having any problems with the kb&m setup either.

Wow...you know if CJ Parker says its crap...

Then it is at least worth checking out.

Wasn't ground breaking, but I quite enjoyed it. The narrative caries the game. Quirky horror, VERY Twin Peaks'ish. Some other inspirations they're not shy of pointing out in the game too (the borrowing of styles is worked in as part of the plot).

When's the last time CD Projekt Red went out and sniped a game on steam a week before release to make it GoG exclusive, undercut a couple of Kickstarter projects that were to be released on Steam and made them exclusives, and then had Piotr Karwowski jump on Twitter to tell consumers that they are limiting their choice of retailers for their own good and the good of developers?

Sweeney brings this on himself.

Can't tell if you understood that was my whole point or not... but sure, yeah.

Epic doesn't get the kid glove treatment just because they're a new player in the industry. Seems pretty rational to me. I'm not sure why people are so obsessed over what others do their money either.

Seriously. GoG does pretty much everything right, and how much discussion on them occurs on average? You don't see anyone feeling the need to grab a sword and shout from the castle walls every time they have a sale, or when something doesn't get released on their store. Point being, if evryone's more or less content with a service there's not a whole lot to discuss other than the occasional praise over a sweet deal, or legitimately interesting news.

But when Epic news causes a genuine stir there's a VERY vocal few who feel like they need to explain to you how your thinking is wrong and their crystal ball has told them that Epic checks out. They totally will stop starving the market if their competitor will just give in to their demands, that they themselves totally will be living by as well forever. And yeah they may have gotten rich off someone else's idea, fumble how to handle a seasonal sale, and are known to have a stressful workplace for the sake of constantly pumping out new content, but their tactics are totally altruistic, meant for the betterment of all gamers, swearzys. Throw all your money their way so they can keep starving the market.

It's not like a company that can literally throw tons of money to anyone willing to sign an exclusivity deal with them would also have the money to hire some of the best marketing people who could come up with tweets like this one. This is from the heart.

Oh and if their tactics of buying out all these indy games happens to kill off GoG, meh... at least we're sticking it to the evil Steam store, with it's dumb feature rich store front and earned market share.

According to that link they're releasing the first 3 maps of 6 for beta testing. REALLY hope those other three aren't too far behind and are being held back so as not to spoil too much.

They may actually finish this thing..??

Played through the free version a long time ago. Own the payed version, but been waiting for them to finish off Xen before doing a play through. Think I'll pass on the videos and just hold out for eventual release... eventually.

What next, Skywind...?

They have the resolution wrong in that article. It's a 3440x1440 monitor.

Also, it's the same height as a 27" 16:9 monitor, fyi.
