I have a 'gaming' laptop, in that it has a halfway decent video card and decent processor/ram, decently sized SSD. 19" screen? 17.something I think.

Of course you get more bang for your buck with a desktop, but sometimes the convenience of being able to carry around something you can still play most games at reasonable resolutions is nice to have.

That said, this Razer thing is somewhat interesting, but not what I was hoping the article was about, aka the next in the line of large screen, full keyboard(with numpad!), good cpu, good ram and SSD laptops. Which may or may not get extremely hot while gaming.

This one is about 2.5 years old now, contemplating an upgrade.

My experience was about the same as yours, I've never liked timers in games, and all these Survival based games are basically just pitting you against a clock the entire time.

Still, I thought Don't Starve is extremely well made, just not my cup of tea, for most of that genre.

Interesting. I'll be getting this at some point, but at some distant sale/GotY version, not anytime soon.

The queue is just untameable at this point. Also, Blue, why doesn't your spellchecker recognize 'untameable' ?? It's a perfectly cromulant word! (Obligatory Simpsons ref.)

What the hell is wrong with Kickstarter? They should have immediately blocked this guy's either extremely naive, or outright scam attempt when it was submitted.

Fair enough, the games queue is quite ridiculous already. Although just a heads up to people considering, there is an option on the store page for PA owners to pay a reduced upgrade fee, currently it's like $9.90 or something.

I'll say it if no one else will:

Half-Life 3 confirmed.

Clearly he felt he could leave, now that HL3 is complete.

Ah, Star Citizen. Whenever I start feeling that 'hey, isn't it a shame nobody has tried to replicate Scientology in the PC gaming scene?' I can just read one of your news stories.

Surely nothing can go wrong with having employees track people online to see if they speak out against the project!

WHAT THE SHIT?!

You gave up FiOS for cable!?!?!? ARRRRGH! I would slap all of YallQaeda for some FiOS where I live.

IMMEDIATELY get FiOS, just watch Amazon Prime, Netflix, Crunchyroll, Hulu, whatever... ARRRGH! Just thinking about that situation is infuriatingly depressing.

But seriously god luck with your situation, I highly recommend a return to FiOS.

I'm tempted to buy PA:Titans, but they were such jerks about the whole thing, it seems like a mistake to support their bullshit.

Hrm, coinflip time maybe.

Well, Grim Dawn is definitely an evolution of TQ, with ex-TQ developers and a modified Titan's Quest engine.

There's also some D1/D2 developers as part of the GD team. Your also not forced online, and can play Internet or LAN COOP... which as far as I'm concerned is light years better than the online DRM that D3 and PoE have.

All 3 have there +/-, but GD hangs with those two easily (plus NOT forcing you online).


Oh I know, but I can't honestly say that D3 doesn't have a better engine, or PoE doesn't have a better setup for the passives, or a much better short length league model. I enjoy Grim Dawn the most currently, but even Torchlight 2 has some pluses over Grim Dawn, to be honest.

Very excited about this. 1 more month.

Edit: Oh God, no...

Most start concealed and with a set number of rounds before mission failure, making each match more fast-paced than you’d think a turn-based strategy could be.

So MOST missions now have a fucking turn counter???? Well, that puts a huge damper on my interest.

Wow, that is a fucking terrible change. I hated the timed missions the most in the first one.

Also, expensive Day 1 dlc.

Oh well, bargain bin it is, on the one hand it's good this choice was so easy.

For a second I thought this was about frozen pizza.

Wow, HARSH reviews on Steam, lol. Rougher than you normally see for a game.

The problem I have with Grim Dawn is it feels like everything is for nothing. The community is small and it just feels too far under the shadow of Path of Exile and Diablo for me to really sink my claws in to. If I want a better baselone ARPG, I'll play PoE and if I want better combat, I'll play Diablo.

I recently gave GD the best attempt I have ever done and hit level 30 with a Stormbringer Druid build but by then I was practically out of all ambition to continue. I wasn't really a fan of Titan's Quest either so this is likely where that lack of interest stems from.

Well, Grim Dawn is definitely an evolution of TQ, with ex-TQ developers and a modified Titan's Quest engine. So far I'm pretty impressed, I have a level 58 Demolitionist/Solder, mostly focused on Ranged and Grenados, who is pretty fun to play, but yes, clearly PoE and Diablo3 do certain things better.

Still, Grim Dawn isn't even out of early release yet. I think they are aiming for February for the official release? What you can play now is 'feature complete' but I've noticed a couple bugs this past build, particularly with some regents not combining correctly this last patch.


As for D3, I'll probably try this new patch, but their steadfast desire to force people to play seasons to unlock STORAGE SPACE in Non-Seasons is making me wonder if it isn't just time to give up on D3 and free up some of my SSD space.

So is the DLC that makes it good? Given how bad the original game is they should be giving these things away.


Sheesh, we get it, you aren't a fan of Pillars of Eternity. Do the haters need to come out for this every PoEt thread?

Besides, based on past game experience, PoEt 2 will be one of the greatest RPGs of all time. (BG1 vs BG2)

When all you have is a hammer...


Looking forward to this though, PoEt is arguably the best of the current crop of new squad based RPGs. Only issue I have with Pillars at this point is the developers seem a little too easily swayed by the vocal minority on their forums, some of the 'balance' changes are drastically changing the gameplay, and not for the better in my opinion. But, when this is finally out and patched, then the balance mods can get finished up and PoEt can be a truly great game.

I've been finishing up some AAA games recently, such as Shadow of Mordor, waiting for this second part of the expansion to come out. Many thousands of Orcs have been murdered to control my boredom.
