Victor Vran is definitely worth the $9.99, half off price. Very good, but gets a bit grindy/repetitive as time goes on. Also, Ranged Legendary weapons are WAY better than melee legendaries, at least the ones I've had drop.

Otherside Entertainment is set up by the original studio head and developers at Looking Glass - the people who created Ultima Underworld, System Shock, Flight Unlimited, Thief, Terra Nova etc. They got the Underworld license back and are making Underworld 3.

They are the best folks to make a System Shock 3 game, so it is an awesome development. If Doug Church (the original engine creator and project/design lead for System Shock) can join them, it'd be even better. I think he's working at Valve these days.

Dammit, now I am unreasonably excited about this, with probably unreasonable expectations as well.

Also very unforgiving to slower CPU's. Changed out my G3258 CPU for an i7-4790 and that fixed ALL issues I was having with stuttering/framerates. When I built this machine in May I had plans to eventually swap in a faster 1150 socket CPU anyway but this game made my mind up for me Went from average 30-40 fps on low-med settings to steady 60fps with the i7 on mostly high settings. That's with a 970GTX 4GB video card and 16GB of RAM btw.

Ouch. Sounds like it's time to upgrade... my main desktop is years slower than the system you just upgraded out of.

Phew, almost a week went by without the announcement of another MOBA! That's a relief.

Interesting, but I can't see myself ever using this. Making different game categories/folders has helped enough.

I'm working on a new app called Launch Your Launchers. Basically it launches your other launchers. Keep all of your handy publisher launchers in one list! I'm going to make a killing, I can feel it

I'd like to point out that I've already secured the patents for my Launcher for your Launcher Launcher, hopefully I can see a reasonable amount of profit before the Launcher^4 takes over the scene.

More on topic, didn't know Peter David had been involved, I'm a bit more tempted to get this now

The Gunslinger perk seems really good so far, good combo of weapons(all pistols and a Katana), and the cosmetic drops don't even seem too annoying in this build.

Hopefully they keep it up and finish this game(enough for release) pretty soon.

Pretty good metroid-like game -- had an area that you get locked out of near the end so I missed one item, never felt like replaying. Getting ready to dig into Axiom Verge soon, wonder how it stacks up. (SC is associated with Orson Scott Card in case that's a problem for some, you know, due to the Ender's Game movie being so bad.)

Oh yeah, I remember why I passed on Shadow Complex the first time around, Orson Scott Card's insanely racist/anti-gay rants terrible movie.

Hrm, the queue of games is already ridiculous, but I'm tempted to buy Stasis for 50% off, that game looks great.

I'll probably skip buying Witcher 3 for awhile, need to finish up the other lesser massive open world games I've got half/almost finished anyway.

Ah nice, this game was pretty good, but I only have it on DVD currently.

I hate to say it, but online is so convenient.

That whole thing was fucking bizarre to read. From what I saw yesterday, the "journalist" basically started it and then cried when the other guy posted about it on social media...


I was curious about this, and reading the article, the person in question works at Breitbart. Pure scum, no doubt he deserved a beating of some sort, but it's always better to control your temper and avoid a lawsuit/jail time, Dota 2 person.

It's good to see Counter-Strike: Global Offensive doing so well.

Meh... I guess. I just find it amazing there are still people alive, with a computer, that don't have CS:GO, or have already played enough of the previous versions to be utterly sick of the CS format.

$15 Elite:Dangerous was too tempting, I contributed to that #5 placement, I'm sorry to say.

DA:I base game for 14.99, but the 'complete' version for 39.99... is the DLC worth it, or just ignore it and get the base version?

For the players that have actually played Inquisition, of course.

With the price standing, Turing will offer additional money-saving measures such as new, smaller bottles with only 30 tablets

Oh good, then your monthly bill will only be $22500! Why, that's practically a steal!


That's what happens with less government regulation and a really bad idea of a Free Market healthcare system from top to bottom, really pays off this way. People VOTE to let this happen.

But...but... the tv man, and the guy on the radio keep shouting that big government is bad, and the Free Market is Jeebus' plan! They can't be wrong!?

Also, Civil War... I am required by international treaty to watch it, but these movies are getting so far from the source material sometimes, the comic nerd in me is getting depressed. In that trailer, Iron Man shoots Captain America in the face point blank with a repulsor shot, and he just shrugs it off!

Same. Apparently we waited a bit too long. Although the obvious question arises, is the game in good working order right now, as of whatever the last patch was?

SHIT. 50% off Witcher 3, 62% off Dragon Age: Inquisition... has the time for purchases come!? NOooooo! *Shakes fist at the heavens*

*EDIT* Curses, Origin is of course pulling the DLC crap, so the "complete edition" is quite a bit more.

Well, that seems like a valid DMCA claim, those models and the camera/room setup seem like they were lifted straight from FNaF.

A bit more gameplay in CASE, but it still looks like they took a LOT from Freddy's, design wise and possibly the actual models.

Well, I was a fan of KF1, I bought KF2 months ago on sale, and I've been a bit annoyed at how long it's taking them to get out of Early Access. That said, this system seems a lot more like CS:GO Cosmetics/skins than anything close to the Payday 2 debacle.

In game drops(for some), cash shop, trading(I assume?), it apparently has worked out very well for CS:GO, although I found it really annoying in that game also, it didn't break the game in and of itself for me. Hundreds(thousands?) of hours in various CS flavors before CS:GO did.

I'll reserve judgement, assuming Tripwire can get their shit together and actually complete enough to get this game into a release state sometime soon. As others have said, seems like it's been almost a year or so without them adding promised Perks and weapons, etc.
