I've actually passed on the Master Chief collection up until now mainly because I didn't want to deal with an X-Box account (I know, silly/wimpy/whatever *shrug*) but for $20 -- I can't pass it up.

It's not an Xbox account, all of Microsoft's stuff is unified. So if you ever had a Hotmail or Live email, created an account for Windows, etc... That's all you need. You shouldn't even see the login screen after the first time you plug it in, either, at least not for a game through Steam. Make sure you have the Win10 game bar stuff disabled, though, 'cause that will remind you it's there real fast when you start playing a connected game that has 700 achievements.

But yeah, totally worth it just to play through all those Halo campaigns [again]. The spin-off is pretty meh, but everything else is good to great.

In my cynical mind, linking a garbage email account and my OS login to the same password sounds like an AWESOME idea... said no one ever <3

$27M sounds like a lot, but the game probably cost $150M to make and market.

Everything I've seen from Death Stranding makes me want to avoid it like the plague. I wouldn't play it if it was free. So yeah, $27M earned is nowhere near the game breaking even.

I thought the same thing until I played it. Videos, screenshots, and even watching others play don't do it justice. You have to experience it for yourself. Both gameplay and story are wholly original, but somehow they work well; it shouldn't be like that, but it does. The gameplay element of building things you know will help others is a powerful draw. When you construct your first road segment in an area that doesn't have it, it gives you a sense of pride to know that your small contribution helped make both your gameplay and other's gameplay easier. I also like the focus on non-violent combat; enemies are typically disabled or stunned. It looks like Hideo Kojima, Kenji Yano, and Shuyo Murata wrote the story backward, meaning they started at the ending and fleshed out all the details to the beginning. Everything fits so well together when you conclude. All the fragmented flashbacks that don't make sense while playing, in the end, replay in their entirety, uninterrupted, and in linear order, so the full scope of the Death Stranding becomes easy to understand.

All that said, it was a play-once game for me. Once I know the ending, I had no desire to replay it. But the first experience through was excellent.

Exactly my view on it, an awesome experience, once. Wouldn't have missed it and maybe replay it in 5-10 years when online functions are down and you have to solo-survive, which is SUBSTANTIALLY harder.

The best way to ensure a colony ship never reaches its destination on a multi-decade journey is to give guns to the passengers.
Or access to any sort of armory or 3d printers....
Or have any passengers at all... which makes even less sense. If they can have children (which in zero grav isn't possible, FYI) they could have frozen them embryos and have an AGI nurture them 18 years before arrival (give or take). But that would make for a far less interesting game now wouldn't it.... ^^

Also, if they traveled to Alpha Centauri at 1g acceleration and de-acceleration they would travel .... an insane amount of years like insanely insane long time.

Good thing that Booking.com leak didn't happen in Ireland....

Because then there would not even be a fine.

This is my contribution to the topic. If you are curious, just google "Ireland GDPR" to see the face of one of the most corrupt politicians in the EU

To give you an idea of the scale of corruption

In 2020, the authority disclosed that 4,660 complaints had been received under the GDPR, but that at the close of the year it only had 83 statutory inquiries on hand, which comprised 56 domestic inquiries and 27 cross-border probes.

fwiw for anyone that still cares...
the dodge roll change is excellent. That said, there was no reason this should not have been THE ORIGINAL DESIGN OF THE SKILL, precedent correctly being set by just about every other ARPG and MMORPG with dodge skills over the last decade.
Too little too late, all of this and these patches. Now one year later.

That being said, how is the game now? Compared to... current state Diablo 3, Path of Exile, Grim Dawn, etc.

I am mildly interested in Wolcen, I love ARPGs, but I hear Wolcen still suffers from no endgame, recycled content, etc.


It's better but not great... not because of the content, but because of lack of it.. as you can see, we are 1 year past release with ZERO new content.

There's a huge difference between finding 'one' cheat tool and saying "gaming mods and cheat engines" are spreading...
It's like .00001 percent of gaming mods and cheat engines.

Secondly, notice how they say Cheat Engines, instead of Cheat Tools?
There's acting a great tool called, Cheat Engine that's been around for a decade or so and 'never' had the issue. Downloads are directly from their site only.

Fear Tactic 101 - Their language and tone are directed at experienced computer users but message is 'don't use mods or cheat engine'
because we found something else all together different and dangerous on the deep web, where all the scary stuff is!

Normally, credible malware hunters warn about specific issues, not go all hyperbolic and all inclusive. Paperbag

Exactly, even when you download Cheat Engine directly from the official website and link, you'll get false positives on a lot of antivirus engines.

( Case in point, here's the virustotal of CE version 7.2 download securely directly from the official website and link )

And the funny part...

Do you know when those false positives began to happen on CE?

When CE began to be used to bypass some single player games microtransaction monetization schemes. Why pay 10$ for 1000 gold in a single player game when you can scan the memory address and put in 1 million gold if you want to? That triggered quite a few publishers and games are a BIG industry now with lots of clout.

My hypothesis: The publishers lobbied antivirus makers to tag a false positive on some bits of code from Cheat Engine without telling them it would flag CE as a false positive. People who know nothing about computers begin installing it, AV warning pops up, a lot of them abort install, bite the bullet and buy the microtransactions instead. $$$

That MS scan result is why I have Windows Defender disabled.... and I am only using Cheat Engine for speeding up some old games even.. WTF MS?

Btw, the actual installed exe only gets this
Virus Total

As someone in indy dev circles I know this problem well. If you make your own custom installer say, with INNO Installer, and not with MSI you get fracked by MS defender nearly always... wonder why... mystery really

I went ahead and bought a 5600XT for my friend thinking the driver issues are long finished and it was the biggest mistake I've ever made. Talk about one head ache after another when it comes to stability and troubleshooting. Pretty much swapped out every other component, BIOS flashing, underclocking/volting and did a stripped down install of the drivers and she still runs in to random black screen flickering and flat-out driver crashes. I don't think she can even play Fallen Order because it'll outright crash the computer.

Was "fortunate" enough to find a RTX 2060 with only having to pay an extra arm and everything is fine meanwhile I'm going to RMA this card for the sake of doing it and then offloading the damn thing to someone else or right in to the river. Paying extra never felt so good now that I don't have to wonder how her PC is doing during every gaming session.

RMA the mofo and never look back.... and btw, this was my experience with every AMD GPU ever. So I am not gonna tell you to go AMD.. ever That said, I also had a 6600 GT .. yes, with the cold boot power-state bug... that was an interesting experience lmao. Btw, Internet decay made the original issue list for that card impossible to find..... great.

What do you mean?
This is data that steam should provide but doesn't.
We're lucky these two guys do it.

It's more of a DMCA / hyperactive lawyer abuse issue than how the site is ran.

Edit
"A Sega rep said the company's legal team is now looking into the situation."




I mean anyone with half a brain doing anything online with large enough presence has lawsuit insurance and laughs at fraudulent DMCA claims. The moment you mention you lawyer up instantly these claims evaporate, and that freedom costs you less than 10$ a month. If you don't defend over this kind of stuff you get it again and again. And to understand why you have to realize that SEGA isn't even involved here, they outsourced this, and now they are scared shitless it goes into court. Perjury is not a minor offense.
