I was so excited to play this game when it first released, but the sheer volume (41?) of DLC just ruined it for me.

Apparently I must be in the minority on this otherwise they wouldn't keep shoveling out the DLCs. I know I don't have to buy them but I feel like I'm playing an out of date game if I don't have them.

I bought them for a bit at first, then finally just uninstalled.

If you owned it on Steam you will be blessed by mandatory patches that literally break the game if you don't own any DLC, because patches change functionality but expansions give you access to them. One of the many things I hate about Paradox. You wouldn't believe how different CK2 with no DLC but latest update is to the release version. And I am not talking about less bugs, I am talking balance wise it's completely broken if you don't have the big expansions.

Sounds cool. I wonder if it will have any DLC...

Inside joke to you Paradox gamers out there :)

Highly doubt it, Paradox never does DLC.

[serious] It will probably be a good game though [/serious]

Is it dry sarcasm hour?

Hrm, this game looks awesome, I may just risk it at $14.99.

Someday in the near future, my Gog library will surpass my Steam library, which has admittedly come to basically a standstill.

Just be sure you realize it's a 2-3hr game...

I seem to be in the minority where I was never able to get into Bioshock 1 or 2, but I thought 3 was great. I thought the world and atmosphere in 1 & 2 were amazing, but the game and gameplay overall I didn't find very fun.

I enjoyed 1, until the point that I didn't. Around when everyone started falling in love with it, the wax sculpture guy, I started finding it tedious.

I enjoyed 2, which I actually feel as if I got for free from a cereal box (I got it free somewhere odd), but don't recall any of it at all. Just that it was more of the same with a slight twist, pretty solid, and crapped on somewhat unfairly.

I was mesmerized by 3, again, until I wasn't. Really enthralled, but at some point facing like 5 mechaWashingtons at a time just started sapping the fun out of it for me.

Yeah but nothing in any game ever captured the rail gliding in the same way as that game did. It really felt natural after a while and once you got the hang of it you were dominating like a god. The game fell apart when it removed the rails and added scripted arena fight rooms, by the hundreds.

Another MS game that is a sad joke. No surprises there.

It is really a bad generation for Microsoft, all their chickens came home to roost. Arrogance with partners towards the end of the 360 era. Lack of ongoing investments in studios who make content. Tedious back and forth micro management of their few remaining partners. Corporate interference leading to lack of creative freedom and multiple cancelled projects. Pissed off most of the Japanese industry by fucking with PlatinumGames and they weren't well liked there to begin with. Pushing for multiplayer focused titles for revenue purposes only and totally neglecting their singleplayer IP stable. The LOL Xbox One launch which doesn't even need to be explained.

Just a fucking shitshow there. The only thing they've done well is the backwards compatibility bit which no one really cares about anyway at this stage in a console gen. It's a testament to the power of the brand that its sold as well as it has in North America because it deserves to do much worse. I'm still shocked anyone bothers buying one, nothing worth playing, the store is a hilarious disaster and they made a mess out of the interface by re-designing 3 fucking times in a single gen.

Let's not forget their constant need to cram every fucking windows update down your throat too. like how State of Decay 2 absolutely requires the latest build of windows or it wont even install.

Thats some bullshit right there. I totally wanted to avoid getting the creative update on my pc because of all the bullshit issues it brings with it. So, yea this just pisses me off eve more to no end.

You don't like reinstalling windows (which is what these updates really do behind the scenes, and I am not even joking) and resetting most settings everywhere every time a MS game releases?

I run 1803 by necessity (freelance work for a W10 store app thing kinda forces me to, as the fucking store requires latest update). It's why I will always say that the W10 store is the biggest fuckup in the history of fuckups by MS. This dwarfs games for windows live by a galaxy sized magnitude.

Ms has actually managed to make a store that doesn't even sell Windows 10 games, it sells Windows 10 v1803 games, and ONLY v1803. And I will never, EVER buy anything from this store. NEVER

I actually detest MS for this shit. If 99% of all games weren't forcing me to run with the herd I would think of alternatives, but there is no alternatives. You wanna play all games you gotta eat that shit with a shovel. But MS apparently thinks that's the way it ought to be.

One of the worst sci-fi shows ever made, imo Will happily skip that sequel.

Did you watch all of season 1? What didn't you like about it?

Well if you really want to know, my big 2 issues with this.

# Constructed conflict everywhere (that's a method in script writing to create conflict by having characters behave out of character to create a conflict / resolution arc within an episode). Literally every Robinson has at least 4 of these.

# Space done wrong, nothing happening in space in this show is in any way realistic or even pseudo science fiction. This show is pure fantasy. I nearly fell off my chair when that rocket exploded in the end and saw what followed. (That debris would not be in any orbit) (Yeah yeah, blame me playing KSP too much to understand orbital mechanics)

And aside that, I didn't like the tone of the show. It felt like a kids show more than anything else.

He's currently ruining European relations too. Lots of inner political calls here to flat out oppose him and ignore any sanctions by the USA. And as last stop we have the Swift banking system. Trump might have just pissed away 70 years of alliance.

You Euros should straight up just forget the US. It's probably safe to assume we're done for over here. I don't see much hope. Best to proceed under that assumption and get yourselves a good start on the post-USA world.

Nah, once the Putin-and-Xi-loving Trump is out of office, things will go back to normal.

By that time we will have forgotten what normal even looked like.

The first book barely touches on it, but one of the odd/interesting things in the "Altered Carbon" universe is humans have found significant evidence for a seemingly extinct but highly advanced Martian civilization. The "stack" technology is adapted from discovered Martian artifacts. All the planets which have been populated by humans were found via coordinates found in Martian relics. The second and third novels feature Martian technology much more prominently. I haven't seen much sci-fi which featured a significant Martian civilization outside maybe War of the Worlds and John Carter of Mars...

Mass Effect.... anyhow the show touched very little on this (much more interesting) element.

What the what? Syfy cancels The Expanse
That blows. Hopefully someone else picks it up.
Shows are cancelled for a variety of reason with the primary ones being ratings and profitability. The Expanse most likely got dropped due to the "nature of its agreement for the series, which only gives the cable network first-run linear rights in the U.S."
Also, sci fi shows be expensive.

1 Game of Thrones episode = 5 The Expanse episodes

Future proof that Syphilis fucking sucks, we got the god awful Lost in Space, the even worse Altered Carbon from Netflix, proof that Netflix still doesn't even come close to making good sci-fi shows, and then a big empty shitty plain of crap (in the sci-fi genre)

The Expanse is literally the only good sci-fi show on right now. How this can be canceled is absolutely beyond me.

I have never watched The Expanse but really dig Altered Carbon. It is a great show in my opinion.

I liked Altered Carbon as well but it isn't a space opera like The Expanse. Which is what I really crave currently. Krypton is there, sure, but that's not really... I mean, they didn't even enter space once yet.

And with worse I mean the feeling. Altered Carbon was neat but it had no greater ambition behind it. Maybe a season 2 will change that.....
