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

"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.

That... looks like it'll be one of the most depressing war movies since probably Casualties of War.

Soldiers packed together, getting strafed for 2 hours... sheesh.

Playing backlog and just thought I would mention it. Did anyone else find Survivalist really good Zombie RPG for under $5 US (sale price seems to be $2.49 US) I'm pleasantly surprised after an hour or two and I haven't even tried CooP yet. FYI, fast action, Top Down, with up to 3 other NPCs or players (CooP) I'm guessing. There base building and management, also an actual story. There's also actual Cause and Effect, Factions and Quests.



That actually looks pretty interesting...also that upper right window in game, with closeups, I swear the first Terminator PC game had that, back in the day, with its terrible blocky graphics. I'm not sure useful that window is, with the speed of the game, but it's not the worst feature I've ever seen.

That game looks like they should have sold it for more than 5 bucks, there's a lot of stuff going on. To the Steam Sale list it goes.

On the one hand, the premise of this game seems interesting. On the other hand, sounds like this is the ultimate griefing bullshit game, anybody with some actual experience playing it?

Why don't I just download it, you ask? Well, like most people under an ISP monopoly, I currently have a data cap.

Holy FUCK, rofl! This game finally entered beta!? Wow, Early Access titles...

I've installed and played this a couple of times; clearly I have not been keeping up to date on this game, I thought it went into beta like 2 years ago.

Actually, I have more than a few of these perpetual development games in my Steam account:

Space Engineers(ran it enough to see if it was playable, it is)

From the Depths(barely scratched the surface)

Call to Arms(Men of War Dev...but then they made the game F2P...)

Besiege(Already awesome, take your time)

Interstellar Marines(pretty sure the devs gave up)

Road Redemption(Already awesome, so I don't mind too much)

Note to self, stop buying into Perpetual Early Access games.

*EDIT* Corrections.
