News Comments > Indie Royale Adds More Sanctum DLC

Not even sure why I bought this since Gemini Rue is the only game up my alley and I already owned it. I guess for $2 any game is worth getting.

Nimbus and ARIES might be fun for 10 minutes.

I liked the Vegas games okay, but given Ubisoft's recent track record I don't have a ton of optimism for more R6 games from them. We shall see.

Steam doesn't allow AO games so I guess this will be rated M?

The first game set a pretty high bar for animations and atmosphere, I'd say it holds up just as well if not makes minor improvements on it.

As far as I know the main improvements are larger areas with more on screen. The graphics quality itself seems the same, but in a large open city rather than smaller areas.

I haven't played it yet, though.

I have a gay sister. I have a gay friend. I am not outraged by his comments. My gay friend would think the whole thing was pretty funny, because unlike the primadonnas of the world, he has a sense of humor.

Just wanted to share.

My ex had a best friend who is a gay male and he used "fag" all the time, because just like me he grew up with it being a common term.

I wonder if vsynch works in my Just Cause 2 now. When it came out vsynch caused this weird slowdown effect, not at all a normal framerate issue, but actual slowdown as if it was FEAR.

"Gay" and "fag" were VERY commonly used words when I was in high school and after, mid-90's to early 2000's. It's going to take a lot of time for them to become the horrible slurs that instantly identify you as a homophobe that GLAAD and similar groups want them to be. Personally I bet that 80 year olds who were born in the 80's and 90's still say those words casually in 50 years, just like my grandpa still says all manner of shit currently considered racist/sexist/whatever. That's just human nature.

It's more about context than any words instantly identifying you as anything.

All that said, their performance was disgusting and not something I personally enjoy.

considering I bought Daggerfall back in the day for $120, and PC titles have generally stayed around $40-$60 over the past 10 or 15 years, I don't see that as too much for this game.

Indeed. Not only is a $10 increase over 20 years not that much at all, but games were not always $50 10 years ago either. I know for a fact from looking at advertisements in my boxes that Under a Killing Moon was $80 for example, and Warcraft 3 was $60. Doom 3 was $60 before the Xbox 360 came out.

This news is sure to upset some people. I know my interest in the game has dropped to nothing.

Only those not paying attention... when a game is announced for iPad, phones and PC what kind of game do you think it is? Not an FPS, obviously. Also given that it was a comic book first this kind of game makes perfect sense.

The campaign is no worse than any CoD campaign, or MoH's from last year. It's no better either, but certainly no worse.

It looked worse to me, even more scripted and controlled, but that could be because it was the opening.

Why must my reason be one that isn't shared across all stores? What difference does that make to the fact that I like using Steam?

Because the whole point of the conversation you chimed in on was why Steam's features would please singleplayer only gamers. That was the entire point I was discussing. So when you come in and say "I am a singleplayer gamer and like Steam" it gives me the impression there is something about Steam that appeals to you as a singleplayer gamer. I wanted to know what that was.

I guess you have nothing though, so... okay?

That's just what they're saying to be polite. We know you're just stubbornly sticking to something dumb you said years ago.

I'm really not. I mean if that makes you feel better about your PC issues then fine, believe what you want. I seriously 100% honestly never have issues though, ever.

The last MoH wasn't terrible in singleplayer really. I mean it wasn't great, maybe not even good, but it was a fun 4 hours or so. Nowhere near worth $60 of course, but for like 10-20 it was alright I guess.

Okay nevermind it was shit.

Bethesda has listed plenty of quest and game-breaking bugs in their patch release notes, so the bugs were obviously there. If you never encountered them, then you're just very very lucky, and should probably quit talking about it before you jinx yourself, not that you'd ever admit that.

According to everyone in this thread I am the luckiest man on the planet.

Even if that's true, it's luck, not maintenance.

Believe what you want, but removing conflicts is obviously going to help stability.

The fact that all of Bethesda's RPGs have had numerous official patches is sufficient evidence that they have major and/or critical bugs. If you didn't personally experience any of these bugs, consider yourself lucky, but you can't dispute that these bugs existed when the patch changelists prove otherwise.

Almost every PC game gets a patch or two. By this reasoning every PC game is a buggy piece of shit.

If you are that lucky then you should be playing the REAL lottery. The cleanest PC imaginable was prone to BSOD's when Fallout 3 was new. I should know; I am OCD when it comes to keeping a clean PC, and it happened on all 3 of mine.

I haven't had a BSOD for any reason since Windows XP, and I updated to Vista on day one of the release candidate.

And yes, I bought and played all Bethesda games on day one.
