> 1) Enabling refunds ...

Does the Steam refund system work by letting the developers authoritatively choose whether to approve or refuse refunds (perhaps either automatically or case-by-case) after the 2 hour / 14 day minimum requirements?

I think they need to talk to Valve about it to get it enabled.

Damn, I was sort of hoping this was a sequel or remake of Codename: Outbreak, a 2001 game by GSC (of STALKER fame). Although rough around the edges, I nonetheless still quite enjoyed that game; it was a nice mix of tactical- and action shooter. It had - for its time - fairly large levels, you had a teammate who was surprisingly useful and the stealth aspects were great. Its eighth(?) level also formed a significant chunk of the the first map in STALKER. I'd love to see a modern remake of that.

This, however, is not the game I was hoping for. This is just another of those games that makes me dread "indie" titles. Lousy animation, an awful interface, unexciting gameplay and a complete lack of imagination (gee, zombies in the city, how /original/). Thank you for alerting me to this travesty so I know not to buy it.

Thanks. I'd never heard of this one. I see it's on GoG, so I think I'll pick it up.

Crap, just ordered the Fire HD 10 for $100.
Gonna see how it compares to my nexus 7.2.

even remembered to use the bluenews link, spend that .0692˘ wisely blue.

Looks like it's still going to be the same price. Good, cause I just ordered 2 of them myself. One for me, one for my wife. Should be a good upgrade over our old Fire 7's.

Shitty CGI garbage trailer, no gameplay, no announcement of this before release. Ten year old game that was left in a broken-as-fuck state after its first expansion (with the rubberbanding bullshit.)

Sounds like a winner!

Do you ever not sound like a grumpy 40 year old virgin who chases kids off his lawn in his spare time?
Those are his good points. And we are all pushing 50 around here.

Hey, hey now...I'm not pushing it. Just gently nudging...

When the King Tut exhibit had rolled through in my area, I was pretty young and had no interest in it, so I never saw it. These days, however, I would absolutely LOVE to check that out.

Just watched this vid last night:

Thought it was summed up pretty well. I'm definitely interested. Not at full price though. After all, I own all of their games, and I enjoy them, but haven't finished a single one so far.

Yep, and word is, Chesko himself is making this mod. This whole creation club nonsense is just weird.

Haven't played this yet (although I did grab my key for it), but I played the demo for 2. Ended up not finishing the demo cause I got so fucking startled. Will definitely check this out though. At least for a bit.

It is. And the graph itself is rather slick.
I think the 'hours played' stat should be a bit larger or bold. That's something I always look at when looking at reviews. I hate seeing something like 'best game ever! I play it every day!' and they have 1.6 hours on record. Sure, some of the time may be played in offline mode, but still.
Glad to see them tweaking it.

Cutter Slade, Navy SEAL? Hrm, was his name that bad in the original?

Looks fairly interesting.

Yeah, I think that's what his name was. Original (updated version) is on GOG
I had checked it out from there, as I had never played it originally. Seemed like a cool game, but if I remember right, the controls were pretty wonky. Didn't really give it a chance. This remake looks pretty decent though.

But repopulation is back. They worked out a deal with the engine folks and got it going again. My old character was still there too.

I've gotta finish my first playthrough of Mad Max. Really is a cool game. Just too damn much to play.

This game is fucking confusing. I can't seem to really get into it. It's a weird kind of game that I've never played before. I've had this game on my PC for a couple of years at least, and I go back to it every so often, but it still never really makes sense to me, and I'm not even sure if I like it or not... I can't describe it. :/

Perfect way to describe it. I'm in the same boat. I've installed the game a number of times, but I just can't get into it.

cool gonna try out Titan fall..

heard titan fall 2 had a good single player campaign.. how is it in the original ?

There isn't one. It was multiplayer only.

As for Unravel, I thought it was pretty cool at first, but it's just not really the type of game for me. Not too big on puzzle type games.

May have to pick this up...We shall see....

Ok I'm sold on the GI-Joe Cobra tank, and driving over Hungry Hungry Hippo's. (The only game my sister and I had for a total of 5 mins before it was promptly taken away due to noise, and replaced with a rubik's cube that my dad spent 5 mins turning just to make it impossible to solve).

Heh. Yeah, that game was friggin LOUD!

I need to reinstall Conquistador. Got distracted with other stuff, and never got very far into it. Really enjoyed what I played though.

I agree with all of the comments about live-tv. I'd also like to throw out one of my own: convenience. When I want to watch something, I want to just select it and start watching. I don't want to plan things around a show. I remember hating that as a teenager. Wanted to do something, but damnit, X-Files is on in 10 minutes!
