This feels like a lawsuit waiting to happen. Dead of Winter is the name of a popular board game. I have my doubts they gave permission for the name to be used.

You (as well as nearly everyone else who commented in this topic) should learn or maybe google what a "trademark" is and why it's not copyright and why it's not enforceable in this instance. For that to understand, google the actual trademark of the boardgame

Hint: Type: GS0281 - Board games

Unless US trademarks work different... this seems a clear case.

As an alternative to clicking on a character in the world, players will also be able to easily select and attack whoever they want from the UI.

That the above wasn't in there yet baffles me. It is new ammunition to my decision to stay far away from this game until it's released. I also don't really get it: when I look at vids, the game just looks like a Divinity OS 2 Expansion. Yet if that's even remotely the case, how come such a basic feature as referred to in the above quote -- that was included in DOS2 -- wasn't in BG3 EA yet? I guess that's good news, and the game isn't just a rehash of DOS2 assets and codes.

This is really not a re-hash. They used placeholders to get some UI stuff working quickly but obviously everything related to 5e systems is new, and this means new AI, new gameplay and likely entirely new game-code, since stuff like mid-turn modal actions and reactions, jumping + flying, pushing is not trivial to implement. I only very shortly checked it out in patch 2 and to me it seems around 20% D:OS 2 and 80% new... which is just fine. I am waiting for full release and got no hurry.... and they still got plenty of character classes missing too

EA announces Codemasters will be developing Anthem 2.

if I had used such BS for Warhammer 1 to 2 I'd have paid 300€ .... needless to say, even buying the DLC and games even at full price would have been WAY cheaper. This is a questionable offer! Unless you only play the game for a month and then ever again.. but if you are a fan of this game that is not how it's gonna go now is it.

Also this deal becomes *WAY* worse when you buy on sales...
And let's not ignore what precedent this sets.. no more complete packs for games. DLC always at full price. Paradox dreamworld apparently.

If think that is bad just remember that there are now less viewers in Germany thanks to the new owners of F1 kicking out free watching in Germany... now only on SKY, and I will never ever give that scummy company a single € (just to watch Mercedes winning again)

F1 is dead to me now... one year of no race watching will cure me of any lingering interest...

It's a good thing they added druid, because now they can face the problem of mass poly-morph and shape-change. And if I can't turn into a giant mammoth I am gonna be sad.

I know I'm old, but why would anyone play this wank, let alone want to watch anyone else play this wank. No matter the side-boob.

Yeah, never mind the content, but I don't see the appeal of the "visual novel" style of game at all.

For those who are interested in seeing if this is for you, one of the "best" examples of the genre is available free on Steam. Warning: Not for children or those who are easily disturbed. Dreyerdaughter, huge anime fan, quit 20 minutes in.

DokiDoki is hardcore spiritual successor of the "big" psychological thriller VNs that go beyond the normal concept range -> "Ever 17: The Out of Infinity" or more generally "Code_18"
This is about as "kids" friendly as reading Nietzsche without any guidance. There is a reason it is free, you don't need to get any rating for a free game.

It's also got nothing to do with HunniePop2 but that's neither here nor there

Whoever had the idea to make this a poetic ode video with this many cuts from the actual point of the video SERIOUSLY needs to rethink their life choices. Doom 2 cardboard should be full-blast heavy metal and screams of awesome destruction! So what if it's not 10 minutes... it could have been an awesome 3 minute video.

Yup....but no one can bring themselves to just make something neat anymore, they have to make sure everyone sees them jerking themselves off over it as well.

Well whatever the case is, I won't be posting any negative shizzle on his video or anything.. I just think the creator missed his chance to do some huge viral hit here if he had just focused more on maybe 1 or 2 levels and had tight editing and keying of music and action. I mean, where else could you do it if not here? Maybe what bothers me more is the missed chance I see, and not what it is. The first video for Doom 1 had the same problem, but yeah.. the creator is the one making the choices here.. we are just consumers.

Eh anyway.. it was a neat watch, but it wasn't awesome. It could have been WAY more awesome and that's what boggles me.

If Dyson Sphere has no combat its worthless to me anyone know if it has enemy AI to break up the boredom?

I also don't get the attraction of these games, where you just build more and more complex factory sims, without any real drama or reason for playing. I mean in SimCity I had to deal with increasing complexity and keeping my population healthy, happy and safe. There was a real sense of accomplishment in that game.

We will see where it is in that respect once it finishes development, no? Right now it's a sandbox just as Factorio was nearly a decade ago.

And besides, you don't have to like a game any of us like Everyone got their own tastes.. to me the game is SUPER chillaxing.

5900X: 3k sold, 0.37% RMA rate

These are the numbers that count.

Yeah but 0.5% RMA rate for a binned and tested product is ABYSMAL too - the CPU's are ALL tested to be in working condition post shipping. Any failure post test happens because of shipping, so there is clearly an issue here. And I mean this issue got nothing to do with AMD, this is some kind of widespread shipping failure.

Dyson Sphere program is Factorio on crack (and factorio itself was crack... so dyson sphere would be speed balls?) . Like an expanded 3d version of it requiring planetary involvement as opposed to railways. LOVE the liquid extraction (it puts them in packaged bars in conveyor, back to liquid when it hits a tank) it was a cute way of doing it, hope it isn't replaced by pipes in the future.

Though with a TON of similarities (resources, mining, storage, recipes, terrain manipulation, research, research items [even the colors are the same to start for research items] automation / transport... basically the whole game is a copy of Factorio that's been expanded) it'll be interesting to sere if it spawns any legal issues.

The joke is, if DSP adds more features they will EASILY overtake Factorio in terms of gameplay thanks to the insanely low feature density in Factorio. It's really mind-blowing that a game that was nearly a decade in development has not actually changed much in those years.... even removing gameplay features instead of adding new ones near the end (campaign.. and enemy science drops making enemies completely pointless to ever fight) instead revising visuals.. as if ANYONE played Factorio for the visuals. Could have been pixel art and it'd probably even have ended up a better game.. oh well I got my money out of Factorio and then some.. and same for DSP.. which is criminally underpriced in this Early Access.. way too cheap for what it already does.
