Well, it's good that they don't get corrupted now, but how about the supposed massive increase in loading times once they are over 6 megs? Still exists? Over exaggerated in the first place? Inquiring minds would like to know.

Nolan has a lot of talent, but he also has probably the most annoying sound design of any modern 'famous' director.

Insanely loud music or mood audio, then almost inaudible dialogue. Every fucking movie. On purpose. I turn up the volume to hear the dialogue, then piss off my neighbors when the next "BOOOOONG" comes on.

Very nice, this is a great game. I already have it on Steam though, so while I picked it up, I don't know if I'm going to regrind everything on the GoG version. I wonder if saves are compatible?

If you have NOT played it, I definitely recommend picking this up on GoG, especially for free.

Since this isn't a Steam exclusive game, might I suggest linking the official site's patch notes instead?

https://deadcells.com/patchnotes

I love Dead Cells and played a ton of it back when it came out on Steam a couple years ago. But this new Malaise system sounds annoying, not sure I'll get into it. Might give it a shot over the holidays.

This Malaise rework sounds like basically a more annoying timer. Not cool, the game already has a variety of timer based challenges built in, and it's a fucking rogue-lite too. Don't get me wrong, I love the previous versions of Dead Cells, I just disagree entirely with them adding YET ANOTHER TIMER MECHANIC to the entire fucking game outside of boss fights... what the fuck for?!

Hopefully it can be toggled off.

Ah yes, late stage capitalism, where medical centers must hope for donations from random streamers.

Still, good job by the streamer and thanks to the donors... but how fucking broken is this country, rofl.

The Onion hit it on the nose earlier this year:

Haha! I almost feel bad for the Onion, the past 4 years have been such a shit show, their satire was often tamer than reality. Plus, the growing number of people who take satire sites as real news...

Man, I am not doing good this season with getting the EGS freebies. I missed several already; whenever I'm at the computer with free time I've been playing Cyberpunk 2077, or reading about it, haven't remembered to check the EGS stuff.

I seem to remember to check EGS when the free game is something I already own though.

I have the ps5 version. Not only does it look like total ass. But on my way to the first mission in my car. Another car fell out of the sky. And killed me. So yea.theres that.

That's actually hilarious.

Life in Night City is dangerous!

The funniest bug by far that I've encountered; every so often when you are putting down a body that you're carrying, it gets THROWN down at like 2000 mph, and violently explodes and destroys nearby destructible items. Seems to be happening less after the last patch, but still there as far as I can tell.

I'm playing DOOM Eternal off and on, and I played all through DOOM. It definitely feels like they recycled at least some of these animations for the Imps and melee kills. Aside from that, it's all practice for whatever final game gets made... a lot of studios 'trash' a ton of work, before they get to their final iteration. Look at old school Blizzard, hell probably even current day Blizzard. Whole games worth of art/animations/sound/levels get locked up in a vault somewhere.

I wonder why crafting materials matter? There are only a few types, and it shouldn't require more than a handful of bytes to store how many you have...

If you craft, for example, the Armor Patches for clothing, it can be a random quality, white to legendary yellow, with the 'common' crafting pattern. So craft 10 times, get 2 blue, 3 green, 5 white, etc. Then you get people crafting 500+ times just to level crafting, and their inventory is full of that crap, so they sell all their greens and under to NPCs or the vending shops, and apparently those sold items never get deleted... there goes the save file size, apparently.

If that's true (I haven't been able to confirm yet if sold items do get deleted from vendor inventory after some time) then you could probably stick with selling your loot at a terminal which doesn't have an inventory. It just disappears. That might help. Having said that, I rarely craft and my save files are at 5MB now, only 3MB away from the 8MB limit and I've got a ways to go. This needs to be fixed soon. This is not something that only affects people who dupe items through glitches or hacks. The game runs pretty good for me and I've been having fun with it, but now I'm afraid to continue playing and corrupting my saves.

The Terminal deposit stations don't have an inventory, until you sell a bunch of junk and other items there, then they have a "Buy Back" window, which has all of your stuff. I'm not sure if that times out eventually, but it definitely persists through saves and reloads, I just tested it. Weirdly, after I sold off all my food and junk at a Terminal, my save file went down from 4.38MB to 4.37MB, but all of the items are still in the "Buy Back" area of the terminal. For the record, I've crafted probably 40-50 armor patches, but I have thousands of each component, hundreds of grenades and health sprays from looting, and 7-8 guns, and 3 melee weapons, with some main clothes and a few backup clothing pieces. I destroy most guns and clothes I pick up. I'll be curious to see what exactly their explanation and fix is, whenever it comes out. I don't even want to get to the 6MB slowdown phase for saved games.

Wisconsin Republicans selling out their state to Foxconn and now are probably going to settle for an even worse deal in the end, classic.

I don't get how people in these states can think corporations paying zero taxes for 10-20 years is at all good for the state, let alone the population of that state. Of course they didn't build the fucking factory or produce any jobs... ugh.

I thought The Expanse had an ending, since it came from a series of novels.

The Expanse (novels) will have an ending, after the ninth and final novel is published.

The show... I don't see it lasting 9 seasons honestly. It's pretty good, very good really, compared to a lot of TV, but I don't see how they get through the next couple of novels' worth of material with a regular budget. I mean, I guess it's doable, but if they stay true to the source material it'll be some serious CGI and a LOT more characters.

Yeah. Defense Grid and Sol Survivor are the original OG TD games for me.

Then I discovered X-Morph Defense and that took it to another level by having my character represented by a badass alien ship. Good times!

I couldn't really get into X-Morph Defense for some reason... it felt like the towers were too weak and/or the ship was too necessary, or something. I did love the demo of that studio's next game, Riftbreaker, though... I'm really looking forward to that coming out in 2021!

If they actually mean the generic materials.. that's really crazy, unless the game is just recording the position change on the map for every item you picked up ever (I think it is for some item types), also leading to bigger save file sizes. I don't see any of the teal 'Crime in Progress' encounters respawning, so I think all the item status information for every one of those bottles, guns, materials, etc. at those places are saved in the main save file.

Somewhere, there is going to have to be some garbage collection to keep saves under control.

Sheesh, how do you say "ambulance chaser" in Polish?

I'd say this is without merit, but then again the Polish legal system seems weird as hell, CDPR had to pay out to the Witcher author awhile back, even though in most countries he would have had no case.

Don't get the draw of these games. Do you guys like games like this, They Are Billions, et al? Are people that play these RTS fans too?

I love RTS games, TAB is very good, albeit kinda repetitive eventually once you get the hang of the units/buildings/AI, and I do like some good Tower Defense games every so often. This game, Defense Grid, is one of the better TD games honestly, although TD games (especially DG) are more like puzzle games than a real RTS. Units come out in the same pattern for the level, so if you lose and replay you know exactly how they are going to come out the next time, unlike(*EDIT*) more random RTS games obviously.

Tower Defense, DotA style games, are all RTS lite, nobody is going to argue against that. They can still be fun though!

There's probably a subset of TD fans that actively hate regular RTS games though.

*EDIT* Autocorrect typo.

Holy shit, you were actually able to place an order for a 3080 and a 3070!? And possibly actually receive a 3070!? From Amazon.. amazing. anytime I look(which admittedly, is not often) they are all sold out, even third party sellers.
