Great news, now they just need to stop charging $59.99 as the base price for the game.

Wow, Darwin award for animals needed. Luckily no humans were killed chasing after that stupid mini-dog, ugh.

It has no online coop. Only local coop.

Well, that's definitely a flaw, but I'm not doing much coop these days aside from FPS stuff like Killing Floor 2, I don't think my gaming group has the patience for this type of game anymore.

Whatever happened to software like Kali, or whatever it was called back in the day, that provided online multi for LAN/local only games?

Sooo... is this game still mostly boring, or worthwhile now?

Anybody? Bueller?

Holy shit, Eugene Jarvis was actually involved? I guess I do have to get this now, especially since it's 30% off for Outland(free last week) owners.

Robotron and Smash TV are two of my favorite games, all time.

Outland was pretty good also.

Yep, price discounts are far less now than past years. I'll probably still pick up a few games if they pass beneath the threshold on the Wishlist though.

Unfortunately, Prey, Resident Evil 7, etc. are all too new to really get discounted.

Remaster Warcraft 3? That engine still looks very good, and it plays well.

A Diablo 2 remaster would make more sense, but even then I'd probably skip it, I've put thousands of hours into vanilla and modded D2.

I ended up enjoying it, even though they clearly made a mistake only have 4 person parties, with a combo move system.

Cutter's criticisms are valid, although I didn't think the writing quality was quite that bad, he's right that there are basically 3-4 endings that you get funneled into.

6 person combat, no combo system(and those resources spent elsewhere), and no emphasis on alternate paths in subsequent playthroughs(some areas locked for an entire game) would have made this game far better.

It's still worth it on sale, in my opnion, and I'll probably get this expansion, just to keep crushing people with my party.

This thread illustrates the true damaging effect from any Russian(or other agency) misinformation campaign: people continue to assume experts are lying because whatever standard of proof they expect to see has not been released to the public, or they heard something else on some social media page.

Secret/Top Secret information, will never be released to the public, aside from leaks obviously. There is already more evidence for the Russian tampering than there ever was for WMDs in Iraq, as VaranDragon brings up(remember the hearings about the LACK of evidence back then, too late of course, but they did occur). Yet people ignore it because somebody lied to them 15 years ago.

People distrust the media, distrust scientists, distrust doctors(anti vaxxers, etc.), distrust any trained expert and believe shit they read on Facebook or some conspiracy site.

Donald Trump is just a bump in the road in comparison. This sort of systemic distrust of experts is something I am not sure the human race will even survive, let alone overcome within the next 20 years.

I just love guns, if there is one thing America needs it's more of them. Remember to support the outdated 2nd Amendment.

Also, you know the world is in a sorry state when Dennis Rodman is the USA's best potential diplomat with North Korea.

Best focus on your business, I fail to see how the travel ban impacts the game industry. Unless your are working on Grand Theft Jihad.

It affects any industry(including the games industry) where not everyone is a Christian US citizen. If any of your employees are, for example, Muslims, they are no longer free to travel into and out of the country for whatever business/personal reasons there may be, without potentially getting shut out, and thus being unavailable for work, let alone having their civil/human rights violated for trumped up scare tactics.

This should be obvious.

I played a test round on the new map, tried the new guns, etc.

It feels pretty good, and that map style (run here to activate power, run here/here/here for trap activation, etc.) is a cool addition.

The new models also look way better in most cases than the default models.

Hrm, played a few hours of Long War 2... I do not like the infiltration system.

You can easily get 30+ enemies, with armor and psychic abilities, in literally the first mission in the game if you don't set up infiltration well. (it takes 8 days of waiting, by the way).

I'll need to look around for a Long War 2 mod that keeps all the other cool stuff and scraps that system, that's just annoying.

some of the stuff they are talking about in terms of changes already happened with FC: Primal, but nobody played it so they dont know any better..

I think most of bluesnews skipped Far Cry Primal, I know I did. Far Cry 5 looks pretty good regardless, so it's going on the sale list. I'm thinking under $20 maybe, under $10 for sure.

Personally I don't care about a delay because who cares, it's not like anyone loses anything because of it. What I do care about, and honestly I won't be buying this game because of it, is the 1 year (might be more as there is still ps exclusive in destiny) exclusivity on actual game content. It's very disappointing to see gaming outlets largely ignoring it as if it's acceptable. A strike, pvp arena, weapon and potentially more are being held for ps4 exclusive for a year. This is bullshit by any measure as that means you're paying to subsidize the ps4 players content. This is the most poisonous exclusive I've ever seen or heard of in any multiplatform game.

This is my main concern. If this actually ends up being how it plays out, with PC people waiting 1year+ for content, forget it.

Devolver had the best conference by far...

Yeah, that was better than the usual E3 presentations, although it felt a little forced to me at times.

Also, Ruiner is looking awesome. Don't turn out to be crap, and don't take another 2 years to be released.

Never thought I'd hear Duran Duran as the soundtrack for survival horror.

Duran Duran can go with anything.

Also, what's wrong with this comment section? it's all scrunched up on any computer I open it on, unlike other comment sections on Blues.
