I would not call putting in a female farmer skin a feature. They could easily model and patch that into previous 2-3 farming sim games.

You could say the same for pretty much any addition in annual iteration simulations.

Still wish someone would merge Spintires with this one... as it stands, it is really more a plastic lego world than anything else, and this is sadly a trend with these annual simulators Farming just doesn't feel right when all you do is basically change the field textures with your work steps.

Also it kinda bothers me mono-culture isn't punished by decreasing yields and increasing diseases. This game really shows only the "teen" rated side of farming.. if one can call it that. I get why they do it, but something in me craves for a *real* simulation with all the ugly and complex parts of farming. Mainly because it would be highly educational, and for joke, the start scenario starts you with nothing, you start your farm in-doors with aquarium sized modern growth equipment and expand from there, to a fully robot run farm ;p

thank you for that !!!

Ditto, was running old version here too apparently.

Well you guys are welcome Had to fix this on 3 PC's... so yeah. Ever since they released version 4 everyone on Version 3 was stuck there apparently, never receiving updates. What a giant (security) pitfall....


Yeah as soon as I read your post I updated several PC's. I'm usually OCD of keeping stuff updated and this totally went below my radar and considering how important pw vault is.... pretty disastrous on lastpass part imo.
ah well it saves me so much time and ease of use for random websites.

It's actually even more problematic than that. Version 4 *is* alpha so the fact that the 2 biggest security issues in quite a while are only fixed in Version 4 is downright evil. That said I don't have any issues with LastPass in Version 4, so YMMV... but when it gets down to it, I'd rather use alpha version than be exposed to two giant security holes no matter what other issues arise.

And it being an alpha also means that it isn't allowed (by Mozilla) to override 3.3 stable. Yet Lastpass pushes version 4 extension as installer if you download it from their site...

That's a lot of sigh worthy stuff imo.

If ye using Lastpass make double sure it actually runs on version 4.xxx

Auto update does NOT update from version 3 to version 4 by itself as I just noticed +.+

Hey, lottsa people would like a farm, I'm one of them. Not that big and commercial but gentleman farming for sure. Enough to provide most of my own food and enough to sell at farmers markets and restos to make some bucks. I'd really like to get into mushroom and microgreen farming.


What is stopping you? You can establish an indoor mushroom farm with modern growth LED's and a basic vapor based watering solution for around $2k... takes about as much space as an aquarium.

What uPlay game did you link there? Redirects me to the front page of the store

uPlay has retarded geo IP features so links might not work correctly. I'm not sure what happened but until recently you could buy at least most EA/Origin games from uPlay DE.
Right now they are not showing up in the DE store. Whether that is a bug or intentional or whether the games do still show up in the UK or US store, I don't know, but here is the official announcement of third party uPlay titles. uPlay is not exclusive to Ubi games.


Then I concede that you are right Although to be fair, I did check before posting and uPlay in Germany (from the client) shows currently (no idea if that was ever different) only Ubisoft games for sale. And in case of Origin I could not find any indy aside from Popcap/SpinTop Games that EA bought, and looking for other publishers from the client when browsing 2 or so pages of trending games i Only saw EA, turns out on page 5 is Witcher 3... So yeah, it is clearly not "none" .. had a major brain far actually because I saw Rainbow Six, and thought that was owned by EA.

Interesting actually. Seems both store fronts are opening up as well.... though Origin still has horrible regional pricing, and uplay.. well as I said, I can't see what you were seeing... and this is insofar funny as I am constantly having uPlay active and browse it... I was playing Anno after all

All that aside, I guess this is a recent change with Ubi, as.. Rainbow Six Siege isn't just sold on Origin, it's also...
http://store.steampowered.com/app/359550/
And same for Anno 2205

Well, always things to learn it seems.

Uplay actually has games from several other developers, example
Same with Origin: R6
I know Valve used to sell games on other platforms too. Dunno what happened.

And imo it is extremely sad that to show what an open platform is, I actually have to point at STEAM nowadays.

What is really extremely sad is how extremely wrong you are Wink . What exactly is "open" about a Steamworks title that absolutely 100% requires Steam to run? Where is the choice? There are literally hundreds of Steamworks games on Steam.

Also, Valve's own catalog is 100% exclusive to Steam. You can buy EA, Ubi or Activision (just to name a few of the biggies) games on a large variety of platforms from GOG to uPlay to Steam. But Valve are keeping their games Steam exclusive. The only other bigger publisher who is doing this is Blizzard who are keeping their games Battle.net exclusive. Everyone else is way more open and giving people more of a choice where to obtain games.

So, saying that Steam or Valve are particularly "open" or about choice is simply blatantly factually incorrect.

Uh, the very same developer I linked to in the same response you funnily enough cut out, is on Steam and GoG entirely DRM free, you can run these games even without steam running even when you buy it via steam, and you can buy the steam key on his website if you want. This is the very definition of an open platform. Steam does not force a dev to use steamworks, and even if he uses it, nobody forces the dev to enforce steam is running while the game is.

And Valve games make up 37 of 6000 games... so that is pretty much irrelevant. How many games on Origin are not from EA, how many on uPlay are not from Ubisoft?

Hint: None

Well you won't hear me disagreeing there.. but nothing can hide forever on Steam. Stuff is found, reported and removed every week.... Steam doesn't do enough, that I can agree with, but I'd rather have greenlight than not, even with all the consequences.

Many great games, and many Kickstarter projects, are only a thing on Steam now because of Greenlight....

Notice in GOG genre selection there is none for puzzle games :/

And as for Eroge games, remember GoG has this
https://www.gog.com/game/huniepop

Which is listed under... Simulation (like.. what?)

So I feel like there is some disparity there... If Huniepop made it on there which is a objective and time based match game then Tidalis should be there too imo.

I wonder if one were to dig and scour indy forums how many other great puzzle games were never accepted by GoG

And well.. as for how GoG behaves..
https://www.gog.com/game/double_dragon_trilogy
Read the reviews ,)

I don't have an axe to grind here, I know Tidalis because I worked with the devs before (not on Tidalis, mind you) and they make great niche games.
Huh. This confuses me somewhat. Why would the store that built its reputation on selling stuff DRM-free be pushing a client in this fashion? I knew they had one, of course, but I didn't know they were tying multiplayer to it. That's stupid.

As far as them not selling most puzzle games, it's their business if they want to leave money on the table. And you know, maybe they do; Valve is raking it in with all the asset flips and other shovelware turning Greenlight into a pig sty. Perhaps GoG believes that stricter curation will have a better payoff in the long run. I don't think they can be faulted for that.

If you want to my thoughts about Tidalis specifically, well... http://bottomlinegamereviews.tumblr.com/post/146645971860/bottom-line-tidalis

Yeah as I said Niche games (And it's totally OK if you didn't like Tidalis) and GoG just don't mix.. which is why I consider Steam absolutely vital. I mean there are tons of games I don't like on Steam.. but personally I want to see them on GoG and Steam because I like competition and choice, and GoG curating for reason X (certainly for genre: niche puzzlers | v-novel | kinetic novel etc.) is not how an *open* platform behaves. Steam is an open platform and GoG certainly stopped being that a long time ago. Which is why I am even more annoyed by UWP games than usual, nobody is served by another curated store. The curator might have shit taste, a bad day or whatever and robs you of seeing and finding the 1 game you love above all (however unlikely)

And remember, if you didn't have the contrast of bad games on Steam you wouldn't really have a way to build up a proper taste in games

Anyway, not faulting GoG, just saying that GoG is not an open platform anymore even though for the most part they still sell truly online DRM free games... but that boundary is blurring.

And imo it is extremely sad that to show what an open platform is, I actually have to point at STEAM nowadays. Steam even allows you to link any non-steam game into the client and stream it via Steamlink for example, allow you to use the steam controller features on any game even the ones not bought or even running via steam....

Oh well And btw, Tidalis is certainly a very strong case of either love or hate

Yeah, and we all know how many bad games made it onto Steam because all Valve cares about is money and not game quality. I guess GOG is just avoiding this for now...

If it were about quality.. but GoG does not select by quality, they select by genre and personal mood of whoever it is that decides this. That is the literal meaning of a closed platform. Quality is no deciding factor to get on GoG
Some examples? I'm unaware of GoG disallowing any particular genres on their service. I mean, I'm guessing they probably don't have any eroge. But other than that...

That said, any dev going UWP exclusive must be brain dead, market share isn't even 50%, and with Vulkan there is even less reason to upgrade to Windows 10 since that works perfectly fine on Windows 7/8 etc.

This was actually what my wordplay was targeting at.. Rio isn't much more than a glorified sewage drain and ripe with crime and corruption.

So.. Olympic games are a perfect fit really after allowing Russian mass dopers back in with zero punishment....

These Olympic games are just.. sigh worthy
