Hrm looking on Steam, it's 20% off if you have Shadow Warrior 1 on Steam. Surely somebody has mentioned that before, but I just noticed, and it only shows the 20% off price on the game's page, not in your Wishlist.

News Comments > Diablo III Season 8 Details
2. Re: Diablo III Season 8 Details Oct 12, 2016, 21:54 MoreLuckThanSkill
 
Seasons never appealed to me, and I'm a little shocked to see Blizzard keep piling on the seasonal crap.

Still, it's clearly got some die-hards hooked, they go nuts every season playing 20+ hours a day apparently. Or their bots do.

people are streaming this now, I'm currently DLing it, I could run a stream if anyone here cares? take requests for showcasing stuff?

Don't need to stream it, just need to confirm for me, apparently they restricted the movement of the Howitzer version of the light tank's turret to only 45 degrees left or right(instead of 360).

That seems like a major hassle, probably a medium nerf... have to see it in game to judge, but I'm not going to buy into EA Access.

Anyway, going to try to avoid single player spoilers for the next week, but have fun, you EAA people.

What? There are already dozens of Rogue-like (that term is really overused and misused by the way) games out there already that have permanent death.


Not to mention most of the new generation RPGs offer hardcore modes with limited saves, etc.

Oh, I see, this guy is a console peasant, who only plays AAA titles.

*Cue PC master race rants.

This looks amazing, I'm tempted to buy it with just that 10% discount on Steam.

Choices, choices...

Also, way to play on my age group's nostalgia, using the best song from the original Transformers animated movie.

They need to release training videos for how the multiplayer works, in Rush you had this ability to call in artillery if the defending team "used" the telegraph "mcom" but apparently you have to spot enemy soldiers in order for it to work.

never saw one artillery barrage in RUSH because nobody knew how to use it.

I guess the biggest dust up is that clans can no longer rent their own server, some are speculating that EA/DICE are doing this because of "badadmin" abuse which is a real thing. Join a server and get moved to the opposite side while a gang of people using organized commands through teamspeak pummels the n00bs. I'm not a fan of scripts that limit kits or imposes rules like no explosives. Downside is there won't be any way to boot cheaters from games, no increased ticket servers etc.

They've also ditched punkbuster, probably a good thing as it never really stopped cheaters.




Whoa, they are getting rid of Punkbuster entirely? What is going to replace it? Punkbuster banned plenty of people, not all the cheaters obviously, but tens of thousands of people(or accounts at least) got PB banned in BF4.

Any new mechanics, like the Rush Artillery, will confuse people the first couple of weeks, it's a given. Eventually the players will learn how to use things, after much cursing and name calling.

Ideally, there will be some missions in the single player that use each of the new mechanics in the game, and explain them tutorial style.

EA is really pushing their subscription service with Battlefield 1, the EA Access program.

Unfortunately I think they are having a fair amount of success, plenty of people in the forums and on BF4 servers seem to have signed up for ...EAA, when it comes up in conversation.

People will really pay for anything, it seems. Says the man who has like 500+ games across Steam, Gog, Origin, Humble, etc.

Holy shit that's a great clip. Beautifully written, perfectly acted. It's so easy to forget how talented Danny DeVito is, when you watch some of his characters, ie. It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

Great performances all around, actually. Although, wtf Vimeo, stop buffering! I assume their site was getting hammered a bit.

I must have gotten some grit in my eye, I'm tearing up over here.

*EDIT* Whoops, writing credits go to Joshua Conkel, I initially though DeVito wrote it also.

I bought this on sale from Gog awhile back, the vanilla game that is.

You know your queue is out of control when stuff you bought at a deep discount already has extra DLC or sequels out, and you've yet to even touch the base game.

PVE content? Is Overwatch dying already, or was that part of the plan all along?

Looks very well polished, either way. Clearly Blizzard's A/B/C teams have left Diablo 3 in the dust.

That spider... one on the one hand, that's amazing, and I'm extremely interested in watching it and my jaw dropped hearing the noise its' legs make during movement. On the other hand, it should be inside a secure, heavily reinforced cage at all times, preferably under armed guard. Far from where I live.

*EDIT* Food poisoning, entirely possible, don't worsen the problem by not drinking enough water and getting dehydrated. Keep drinking water, if you can't keep water down, obviously see a doctor.

Blue, nin's idea is simple and brilliant. Could you or Frans please add this to your site?

Same, I've been coming to this site for like 15 years or more, and only learned about the Amazon thing about a year ago, when somebody mentioned it in a thread. Adblock all the way by default on every site, for me.


Also, a bald eagle trapped in a car grill in Florida during a hurricane. There's a clever metaphor for the USA in there somewhere...

That really is an impressive costume, although more from an imagination standpoint than a technical one. Plenty of insanely intricate Iron Man and other power suit costumes have been done in the past.

Also a ton of props for not just being nude body paint, and wearing a suit for 85% of the costume.

Mafia III


OMG HL3 CONFERMED!!!!!!!!!

Mafia III is in position 1, 2, and 4. This adds up to 7.
Sid Meier’s Civilization® VI is in position 3 and 9. This adds up to 12.
7 divided by 12 equals 0.583333333. It all points to 3! Even 8 - 5 = 3. It's a sign! Valve were not responsible for 9/11. That'd be 0.8181818181 after all. No 3's.

So far in this thread, I've seen nothing but hard science, backed up by rigorous measurements by impartial groups. HL3 Confirmed.

I bought Wasteland 2 in early access, not the Kickstarter period, but I enjoyed it thoroughly. Two playthroughs before they even released the DC version, one extremely buggy vanilla, one patched.

I guess I'll have to get in on the ... Fig for this. Is that discount only for people who actually Kickstarted, or anybody who bought during Early Access too? I'm assuming just Kickstarter pledges.

Technical issues aside, everything else about this game sounds great. After a few patches this game should be pretty sweet.

Definite buy for me, but at this point I'll just wait for some patches and potential price drops. The queue really needs to get cleared out a bit.

News Comments > Dungeon Keeper Free on Origin
10. Re: In other news, Origin is once again... Oct 7, 2016, 12:39 MoreLuckThanSkill
 
?? What's with the resentment in this thread?

Origin is about as bad as Steam is these days, in other words, don't buy the junk, get the good deals if you're interested, and move on.

Dungeon Keeper is one of my favorite games, all time. I have it on Gog(and on original CD), but I'll probably get this Origin version too, because hey, why not?

Dungeon Keeper 2 is pretty great also, so really the majority of the series is good to great.

Looks great, and as always, looks like the player is hacking with all the powers they have.

I'll definitely play through this one with no kills(aside from story kills).
