I think it's not just hammering from the Steam sales, but they are also getting DDoSed.

Too many people using default passwords/never updating firmware on random Internet of Things crap that shouldn't be on the internet in the first place.

Very nice, Humble. I picked this up earlier today, whilst pondering the Steam sales.

For those of you concerned about giving your Steam info, you usually have to anyway for any Humble purchase that has Steam as a requirement.

This reminds me, I need to make a full run through the BG1 BG2 Enhanced versions... they should be patched up pretty nicely by now.

Hopefully all the good mods are ported over too.

News Comments > Steam Winter Sale and Awards Voting Begin

I'm probably going to buy:

Abzu
Creeper World 3
Double Dragon:Neon
Enter the Gungeon
Livelock
Deserts of Kharak(Discount for owning Homeworld Remastered)
We Are the Dwarves

Debating getting Deus Ex for $19.79 or whatever it is now.

Also debating picking up Descent:Undergound and Overload to support the indies, but both of those projects seem pretty far from completion.

I can no longer use the key resellers, chance is way too high they are bought with stolen credit cards.

We intend to do exactly this within the Descent Universe, we are rebooting the franchise, but with a small amount of funding we had to do this in phases, this is phase 1, by phase 3 we will all be in space fighting over Alien technology, but we need to be successful in phase 1 etc to have the funding.

We do not have millions of dollars and raman noodles are getting old, real fast.

WM


Dammit, an impassioned Indie Dev posting in a thread about his own game on Bluesnews... now I have to buy this and the other Descent remake.

Good luck, WingmanDU, it's looking really good so far.

Steam store seems to be hammered still, but I'm not really into the Gog Galaxy client(required for multiplayer?) hrm... should I finally break down and install Galaxy? *ponders.*

I'm hoping this game goes on a rather severe sale tomorrow, it looks like a lot of fun at $9.99 or so.


It's available in a lot of places (G2A, CDKeys, etc) for less...

I am sure it is, but there is stil the potential that a lot of those keys are stolen/bought with stolen credit cards. I can't justify using those sites anymore.

Wow, steam is HAMMERED right now, lol. Can't even search for anything effectively, and my account isn't registering correctly with what I already own. GG Steam sale.

"Mankind has fallen."

I wonder what it says about the human psyche that so much of our imagination, from entertainment to religion, gets focused on apocalyptic scenarios where our entire species is either on the verge of death or destined to die soon or already dead.

Aside from that, yet another VR title. Shotgun method engaged.

*Nostalgia glasses off*

I think the original Descent was overrated. The degree of motion was cool, but the actual gameplay got boring quick for me.

Curse all these developers for trying to sucker people in with nostalgia!

I thought there was an AA truck. Did that shoot you down?

One of the variants of the Artillery truck is an armored Anti-Aircraft version.. it's very strong vs planes and even the Blimp Behemoth. Whenever there is a free vehicle slot and the other team gets the Blimp, on Blimp enabled maps, I get one and start wrecking their airpower.

You can ALMOST one man the Behemoth with it, if you target their gunners first.

It certainly feels like there is a wide disparity in skill in this game... I swear a lot of people are playing this as their first FPS on a PC or something. I don't even play BF1 that much, and I'm getting extremely high K/D ratios even as infantry. I only ever get killed in a tank when I aggressively cap points. I really wish there was a more detailed battle report system like BF4 had, for BF1.

*EDIT* Grammar.

Men of War: Assault Squad 2 is excellent...$7.49 is a bargain for that game. It's the best of the series by far.

If you're an RTS fan at all, and somehow don't have it, I recommend picking it up.

Caution: Micro and Macro required.

Looking good, and the last couple of gameplay Alpha videos haven't been too shabby either. Hopefully this game turns out well, Dawn of War 1 is one of my favorite RTS games, all time.

Space Hulk:Deathwing... officially moved to the deep Steam sale list, for me. It still looks good, but I've got far more than enough to play, if it's still a buggy mess. Spring or Summer sale it is.

So, how bout that Tomb Raider?

Rise of the Tomb Raider is actually pretty good, not full price good, but 20-30$ good easily.

Although I would like to say, I liked Laura Croft's face a LOT more in the first 'new' Tomb Raider game(2013?) It feels like they either had a different art team sometimes, or at least a different direction. Yes, she is somewhat younger, but her face bones wouldn't be that different.

Wow, very interesting, Poland. CD Projekt RED will no doubt make something awesome eventually, and I find it really nice that the government supports their homegrown tech companies, even for video games.

All of these space exploration/building games look awesome to me...I looked at some videos of Empyrion, that looks great too. I'm down to try ALL of these, I just need to win the lottery or something to have the time to really get into these open ended building games.

I like the the clip of cartoony astronauts vacuuming up the terrain and reforming it, reminds me of a less depressing 3d version of Cortex Command. I could easily see myself getting lost in any of these games for days at a time, building absolutely meaningless, vast structures in my own corner of the game universe.

Well, they are certainly getting good at putting interesting trailers together.

I just want to get a chance to play the full single player game before the Trump-led Oligarchy kills us all.

My total contributions to Star Citizen: still $0.
So you have donated the correct amount of money and you have normal expectations. Are you sure you posted in the right thread?

I know you're joking, but dammit if they haven't gotten me interested, in spite of my very strong ridicule and skepticism earlier on in this Star Citizen experience.

I almost hate to say it, but I'd rather they actually finish the game at this point, than have them collapse in a massive failure/shame pile.

I played through DOOM with no issues with Denuvo, didn't even notice the copy protection affecting anything, to be honest.

As much as I hate the idea of copy protection, if a studio WANTS to use it to protect their sales, I can't really fault them that much. Denuvo seems pretty honest and realistic about their copy protection too.

Not much to see here.

Scottish Martial Arts wrote on Dec 16, 2016, 18:12:
Well despite the strafing, the Brits got nearly their entire expeditionary force and a portion of the French 1st Army out of there, principally because every seaworthy boat in the UK showed up to get them ("England's fathers sailing out to rescue England's sons."), not to mention the feats of the RAF's Fighter Command. If you were to pick a single most dramatic and heroic moment in the history of WWII, you would be hard pressed to pick something better than Dunkirk and Operation Dynamo. After all, had the Brits failed in the evacuation from Dunkirk, it's very likely they, like the French, would have been forced to surrender in short order.

Spoilers!

I'm reasonably familiar with the evacuation the movie is about and to be fair, I am interested in seeing this film. But I can't imagine it being uplifting until possibly the very end, a bit of a 'The Road' style picture, emotionally.
