Heads, buy it. Tails, buy it?

Well, the coin flip is more of a Day 1 buy vs 'Hold off for a Sale' buy.

It's nearly 100% garaunteed that I'll get it at some point.

Urine, feces, sweat, other body secretions, and skin cells + chlorine = strong chlorine smell. Enjoy those stagnant bodies of water!

This looks gorgeous... dare I risk a day one buy!?

Warhammer 40k games lately have been a bit of a letdown, to say the least.


But, this is Relic, an experienced crew, hrm.

coin flip time.

The original comic is a masterpiece.

I was not that impressed with the game though, although I was probably execting too much after reading the comic.

I'll take a look at this when it's done though, probably.

Okay, clearly Netflix has dump trucks worth of money to toss around, they got Will Smith and that trailer actually looks pretty interesting.

"It comes out in December, but hey let's start bragging now!" -Netflix.



*EDIT* TYpo.

Bleh, I bought this via the Bard's Tale Kickstarter, but so far there is nothing on how to reclaim my key from InXile/Kickstarter.


You just have to go to the InXile Backer Rewards page and redeem your key for Steam or GOG. The link is here.

Whoops, thanks... yeah I saw that finally after reading inXile's page a bit, needed to create yet another account on there, for the various game codes. Code redeemed via Gog.

I'd much rather prefer they just put the codes in Kickstarter, I seriously don't need an account at every website on the planet.

But I'm sure there are other technical reasons as well as gently urging people to use their website, oh well.

*EDIT* Thanks also to WaltC!

Also, there is at least one combo of Orc chief abilities that is basically untouchable: Ranged High Damage, Cannot Be Surprised, Cannot be Executed, Cannot be Harmed in Melee. In the second 'zone' it's possible for a guy to spawn with all of that.

So basically you cannot harm him except with a mounted beast, but then he can kill a mounted beast from range pretty easily.



Pretty sure you can headshot that guy? I think I saw him. Put a few arrows in his skull and down he went. The annoying thing is that since you can't melee him, you never behead him, and he keeps coming back. Eventually I just ignored him.

My fatal mistake with that guy was I got killed by him once, and the power he gained was "Immune to Arrows," or whatever it's called in game.

So yeah he comes back even if he dies, and I could only kill him with a mounted beast attack. It's sorta good, in a way, you can steamroll most of the lieutenants with no problem whatsoever, just that guy had immunity to basically 98% of the player's abilities.

*EDIT* Typo.

I started out loving the first one, then got worn out with the grind. I maxxed out my character's abilities, but had utterly no desire to finish the story.

Also, there is at least one combo of Orc chief abilities that is basically untouchable: Ranged High Damage, Cannot Be Surprised, Cannot be Executed, Cannot be Harmed in Melee. In the second 'zone' it's possible for a guy to spawn with all of that.

So basically you cannot harm him except with a mounted beast, but then he can kill a mounted beast from range pretty easily.

I'm pretty sure I still have my saves though, it's on my list of things to go back and finish if somehow all my other games vanish.

Wow, a surpising (to me, at least) number of Last Stand supporters here. That mode is the exact opposite to what I want out of any RTS game, but cool if you guys enjoyed it.

Personally, I just hope DoW3 is way more DoW1/traditional RTS than any of that MOBA sort of stuff.

hrm, I need a second SSD I think, I got this for free because I owned AotS, which I had gotten on a discount for owning SoaSE or something.

But currently, no room to even install it and become jaded and disillusioned with the modern RTSes. I'm looking at you, Grey Goo and AotS:E.

A sequel to Space Marine would be welcomed.....

While Space Marine was pretty cool, don't even joke about potentially messing up this RTS, especially since it's more DoW1 than DoW2.

"Hrm, some of these people liked Space Marine. Let's scrap the RTS game and just do Space Marine 2!" -Marketing Drone #75864

I'm tempted to actually sign up for this beta, just to put down the classics:

Starcraft(mostly 1, polish of 2), Warcraft 2 and 3, Men of War, DoW1, Battle Realms.

Cherry pick the best aspects of half of those games and DoW3, with the 40k lore, will be ridiculously awesome.

If they go more Hero heavy, then Spellforce 2, Soldiers of Anarchy, and Dragonshard, for how to have some insanely cool small team rts with heroes.

That reminds me though, I need to go back and finish Space Marine. I have like a dozen games half finished on my main desktop at the moment, keep getting distracted.

16. Re: Cats, toxoplasma Gondii Feb 23, 2017, 15:12 MoreLuckThanSkill
 
Wtf, that's the least useful fucking study I've heard about in awhile.

If you're testing for dementia/psychosis, you can't stop the study at 18 years old...

Unfortunately there will probably never be a real toxoplasmsosis gondii study done in humans, it takes too long, and no living person is going to let their brain get biopsied.

tl/dr: don't be around cats or cat droppings.

10. Re: Pillars of Eternity 2 Fig Campaign Raises More Than $3 million. Feb 23, 2017, 15:08 MoreLuckThanSkill
 
CJ_Parker wrote on Feb 23, 2017, 14:26:
P.S.: Wow, I totally forgot about the Fig funds. It is even more of a super-epic mega fail if we deduct the investor funds. The actual pledges only stand at about $1.8 million right now which makes it well under 50% of the first campaign. Talk about a complete failure. I'm proud of all my fellow gamers who, like me, did not fall for Obshittian hype of nothingness again. A nice wallet vote right there. WTG bruuuuhs!

Yep, not as many people like FIG, or wanted to pledge/pre-order, 30k vs 74k for PoEt 1. Still, they are going to end up with probably $4 million from this campaign. That doesn't seem like a complete failure.

Keep in mind, some people chose to actually invest(game+monetary returns) rather than pledge(no investment returns, just the game/rewards), so it's a bit different than a straight Kickstarter campaign. Less people ended up giving about the same amount of total money, potentially more if they want to get to the additional Ship Types stretch goal. 28 hours to go, they'll probably break the $4million mark.

In addition to how the game actually turns out, I'm curious to see what sort of praise/rage we hear about from the investors after this is all over. Theoretically even if the game isn't good, the Fig model might still 'work' for the investors. So far though, I'm liking all of the info and clips about the game, except the 5 man party decision. This game will probably turn out to be pretty damned good.

*Disclaimer: I pledged only, the $45 dollar version -$5 for owning PoEt 1.

I'm going to start using this excuse at work. "Wasn't me, it was cosmic rays!"

Surely that won't lead to immediate termination?

Holy crap, that does indeed look like Ghosts N' Goblins... The jumping style, and the crouch and tossing lances really stood out...

Didn't like the video overall though... Too much flipping between images really quickly...

Video editing aside, yeah that game looks pretty sweet, in a focused nostalgic way.

I used to love/hate Ghouls N' Ghosts back in the day, talk about an unforgiving old school game. Real pros keep the lance the entire way through.
