I read the article, and an addict is an addict. It doesn't matter if it's video games or drugs or sex or religion, many people, arguably most people, struggle with control when it comes to one or more activities that bring pleasure.

This article seems a bit unfair in that aspect, the main subject had psychological counseling starting at age 6, diagnosed ADD, etc. video games could have just as easily been replaced by almost any addictive substance/hobby.

Got the Deponia games separately for MUCH less than the "Complete Deponia" experience, although I understand that combined version has a bit of added functionality.

Too many good sales across Gog, Gamersgate, etc. already, and Steam hasn't even gotten into their full winter sale yet. The queue cannot be conquered.

Nice... I was on the tail end of the game, but had put it aside for BF1 and some other games. I'll go back and finish it with this DLC next week, hopefully.

Death (Metal) Troopers...that's awesome. They need to make a full length song/video for that immediately!

Same.. that definitely says something about the general age and nerdiness level of Bluesnews.

I don't think ROM (Space Knight) has had a comic in... like 15 years?

Furi, that game looks intense and visually stunning, but it also looks like it has the potential to make me smash my keyboard because of the memorization/movement execution required for each fight.

To the deep sale wishlist it goes!

Nice, I'm up to 18 games in Uplay, of which I've actually bought...4? All on ridiculous discounts too.

I did have to update Uplay a couple of times before though.

Ubisoft is at least being pretty generous with their older titles, although Uplay is still far more annoying(due to the update procedure mainly) than Steam or Origin at this point.

This release reminds me, I need to finish Black Flag. I get soo sidetracked in those open world games, running around pushing guards off the roof or other non-plot nonsense.

Final fantasy"s story is so stupid. These tragic events happen, then the characters just go on as if nothing is wrong, fishing and taking pictures, and going on stupid quests not related to the story. And they never discuss what just happened.

Or maybe they're just made of sterner stuff than you are and don't need to piss and moan about past tragedies for the rest of their lives.

I don't think I've played any FF games since probably FF2, but I always love reading about the cheering and gnashing of teeth anytime a FF game comes out.

I'm still backing it simply because of the price and every thing they improve between now and the new release date is a great bonus.

Well, just to clarify, did you actually cancel you pre-order, or not? I thought you said earlier you did cancel.

I'm leaning towards buying it off of GMG, the setting is addictive to me, and it's not completely implausible that they patch it up before or shortly after release day...

*EDIT* Whoops, typo.

Why does this seem like Just Cause:Tom Clancy Edition?

Looks pretty interesting, but I'm done doing any sort of beta testing. Have fun, people who got into the beta, let us know how it really is!

I read some beta player reviews, apparently there (currently) is no randomization in the spawns, so after you play a level a few times, you can theoretically memorize most or all of the attack/spawn sequences.

Can that be fixed? Yeah, theoretically.

It's like $27.29 on GMG, with the above and Wallshadows' account, it seems like there is the potential to back yet another shitty Warhammer 40k game that never gets patched up to a playable state for a year, but it's not that much money... hrm.

Just saw that a new single player Mechwarrior title (Mechwarrior 5: Mercenaries) is in the works:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gz8Y1V8gy1A

About fucking time.

Looks like it's using unreal engine, which is a bit of a surprise considering it's being made by the same team that made Mechwarrior Online, which used Cryengine IIRC.

Hrm, that looks really good, and definitely more sim-oriented than the Titanfall 2 arcadey mechs I've been using. Although, the Shogo-ish Titanfall 2 version is pretty fun, Mechwarrior looks like it'll be a lot more enjoyable long term.

jdreyer -> Beyonce is objectively hot. I now question your judgement.

Titanfall 2 single player campaign was actually really good, for those who are curious. I definitely recommend getting it on a deep sale, if you aren't into the multiplayer(which is also pretty damned good, a nice style break from BF1). Short, of course, I think the campaign took me about 6-7 hours.

I was all ready to curse this guy out, but reading the article, he is a classic old school hacker, and no doubt none of his devices will contribute to the IoT botnets. Have fun, buddy.

There are 9 chapters spread out over 7 ships that are part of the hulk. Each chapter has several missions (3-4 I believe) and each mission takes 30-45 minutes apparently. So there should be quite a bit of meat on its bones. I bit the bullet and preordered, but Im a bit of a Space Hulk fan, and I liked what I saw from the gameplay videos. Even if I play through it once in solo, and maybe a few coop games I think I would have gotten my money's worth. Got
the game from GreenManGaming for like 27 Euros, which is not bad at all.

Hrm, I hadn't checked greenmangaming yet. $27.29(USD) for pre-order... hrm. It might be coin flip time.

Can't really tell anything about the gameplay from this clip, but the 'ancestry' of their development team sounds pretty strong.

I'll give them the benefit of the doubt until they show some real gameplay footage.

Whilst the ambiance is awesome I'm concerned it's just an A to B grind. Where are the side missions or reasons to explore? Finding artifacts and other things? Seems like they'll be missing out on a great opportunity if that's the case. I'm on some massive derelict of a space hulk, of course I want to explore it.

Agreed, but I think this game is smaller scale than you'd probably like, I doubt there is much side area/secondary objective exploration in a given mission.

With so many games out, multiple sales, etc. I may just hold off on this for a few months, Killing Floor 2 has been great for my COOP pve fix, honestly. BF1 for Pvp of course.

Looks pretty good,although the friendly AI seems a bit suspect at times.

I'm tempted to buy this, in spite of the classic Pre-Order reservations.

Not to be confused with "We Are The Dwarves," which also features vertically challenged humanoids in a fantasy strategy game.

This looks pretty interesting, I'll add it to the Steam sale list.
