Man, I was for 3 seconds hyped until I remembered that nothing good ever comes from Warhammer RPG announcements

Basically this, but surely they can't mess up the ARPG format too much?

j/k that's literally one of the harder genres to get right, as evidenced by truckloads of shit ARPGs.

CoD ripoff of Left 4 Dead and Strange Brigade? Not interested personally, but I'm sure it'll make a billion dollars.

Interesting premise, although the trailer doesn't really look like anything special. I'll keep an eye on this, I can't get enough of good XCom variations.

Can some company for the love of jeebuz acquire the rights for "Nocturne"? Was I the only one that lived when that game came out and blew me the f**k away? Who the hell else knows what I'm talking about. I never hear anyone mention of it. It was pure badass for it's time. I'd even love to buy it now with proper Win10 support.

I remember Nocturne well, the idea was great, the controls were... well it's unfair to say horrendous, because there was an autoaim option, but oh my god, talk about fighting the controls! Also I remember it being extremely buggy, at least the initial release. Still on CDs?

I don't remember playing any patched version later on, so maybe it got better.

Also, I remember it being the Crysis of its time, in that it ran at like 5-10fps on midrange computers of the day.

Two pistols John Woo style, fighting vampires and werewolves for Theodore Roosevelt, cool. Two pistols, attempted to be mapped to mouse controls in a slightly isometric 3d environment even with those weird laser sights? Made me rage. It's been awhile but I swear there was an option to map each arm to a different control set or something? Lol, basically I had issues with the controls.

It's one of those games that needs a patched up re-release on GoG, now that it can run at a real framerate for everybody.

It's cool that you love it though, Xero... reminds me of Soldiers of Anarchy for me, which about 3 people played world wide, and was crazy awesome.

I don't get some of these remakes like this... I mean I enjoyed Fallout:NV, but I don't think I enjoyed it enough to do another 200+ hour run through the game, just because it's in a slightly better engine.

Part of the appeal(in making the mod) is that it is a labor of love for the developers of course, but who even has time to play these remakes?

*EDIT* Grammar.

One story: "Almost half of US cellphone calls will be scams"

Another story: "FEMA to use cellphones to put out Presidential Alerts"

I see a potential issue here...

Also, let's keep people in constant fear, that'll help.

Haha, is this an Onion or other satire site video? This can't be real... #GetBlown is their hashtag? Rofl!

I'll hold out for version 3.0 with Smellovision.

Ahh, BF4, the best Battlefield. On the one hand, it's nice that EA is basically giving away all their older multiplayer games for free or at a massive discount, but hoo boy, I imagine the cheating situation is going to be insane for a few months.

I was a little hyped up for this pre-release, glad I didn't buy into it at retail. Moving this to the $10 or less list.

That looks pretty awesome actually, obviously somewhat derivative of Broforce, but I love that game.

Now, how do I convince any of the coop group to buy this...

none that I have noticed, on w10 with 1070 and obviously the same driver since it was forced*

What games did it break?


I shouldn't have said break, but Mad Max and BFV Beta became basically unplayable, didn't try many more. Pausing every 10-40 seconds or so, for a good 3-4 seconds. But, it's Windows 8.1, so maybe Nvidia half assed that driver.

I went back one driver version as I said and no issues, so hopefully it'll be fixed for whatever version comes after 399.07, if I give in and get BFV later.

Way to film the death or maiming of your friend, buddy.

Pretty sure this clip is years old though... something about these videosift style sites, they are dredging up old clips all the time, acting as though they are brand new. It's strangely depressing.

Meh, I thought the reboot and the sequel were okay, well worth the 10 bucks or less I spent on each. I'll probably pick this up when it's under $10 as well, and murder thousands of henchmen in gruesome fashion, so I can Indiana Jones some chunks of carved stone or something.

Uwe Boll, questionable at best as a director, but a high master of tax loopholes and gathering funding.

MORE GAMES WITH CAPS PLEASE. Said nobody, ever.

I thought we already established it a few weeks ago; if your game's name is ALL CAPS, it's instantly successful on Steam.

Accurrate article. It's been mostly downhill for BFV for me, since I found out Supports can't just build wherever the hell they want with their sandbags and gun emplacements.

Luckily we're in a golden age of RPGs and tactical squad games right now.

With a slight resurgence of coop vs horde games to boot.
