I really don't get the appeal of games like this. Someone help me understand.

It's hard to explain unless you try it. It's also a trucking management sim where you hire NPCs, purchase trucks and garages. It just feels awesome to take a truck from New Mexico to Washington to drop off a load. You also have a wide selection of Internet Radio stations to listen to on the way. You can customize the truck to your liking including the various settings to make it as easy or as hard to drive the truck. All along the way you see just beautiful landscapes. And, there are plenty of mods from trucks, to audio to real life businesses to add or replace the existing generic ones.

The only one I have played of those is Furi, and that was a fun little game. Definitely recommended if you can nab it for "free".

Bomber Crew is a really good one too.

The name of this game is pretty terrible, but the game looks good. Once they fix the servers I'll give it a shot.

Is it pronounced 'WOL-SEN' or 'WOKEN'?

I've heard WOL-SEN by a Youtuber.

Still a better launch than D3. I joined the kickstarter because I wanted a SP game, esp. in the rural area I live where Internet connectivity is flaky as it is. And I'm having a blast with it. Haven't seen any game breaking bugs, issues with my stash or disappearing saves like others have. I have seen some textures missing weirdness with stumps on the ground. Other than that I love the classless abilities of choosing weapons and skills from melee , casting and ranged characters.

I like the video, but it's UE4, so it till run like dogshit with that many highly-detailed models plowing across the screen.

Has anyone played the original? I could go for a good RTS, me.

It's turn based so UE4 issues shouldn't be a problem.

I played the first one and it was a heck of a lot of fun. It can get pretty hard though. I never did finish all of the campaigns.

Those were the days. The first speaking computer game, IIRC. Played it on my C-64.

Same here. That and it's sequel. The digitized voice was up there with Impossible Mission as the first games to use that.

Impossible Mission, SO GOOD

I played Impossible Mission religiously but could never figure out how to put the pieces of the puzzle together. I spent many hours on the game and never beat it.

It still surprises me that there has never been a sequel or remake to the original Wolfenstein game. As much as I love the first-person shooter games, I think there would be a market for a isometric stealth-shooter in the same vein as Castle Wolfenstein. I think Bethesda would make a bundle just based on the game's name and nostalgic appeal alone.

They did have a sequel of sorts released in 84: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beyond_Castle_Wolfenstein

My friend and I are enjoying duoing the game... but man, are there some strange interface design decisions:

* When buying or selling in the store, there is no compare feature to compare it to your current item (It just shows the gear score level difference), and also doesn't show what bonuses the gear piece has.

* When in a bivouac, you can't actually bring up your inventory to do management, which is odd, since it seems like a thing you would do when camping.

* with the amount of items you can have, you would think either the item wheel would have more spots, or they would at let you at least use consumable stat-buff items from the inventory menu, so you didn't have to waste time slotting them, using the item, then reslotting your active use item.

* speaking of the inventory screen ("I" on the keyboard)... is there even a use for that screen, since you can't equip the items to your radial menu from it? (You have to do that from your loadout screen.

Agreed with all points. I never know what attachments go with what. Got a gun with no silencer and there's no option to buy one back in the shop.

Didn't know about "I". I've only been using "L"

I was initially a little interested, but after hearing from beta players, fuck this microtransaction-heavy mess of a game.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is out in November, albeit on Rockstar's Yet Another Game Launcher thing, so....

lol, RDR, anther microtransaction game.

Anyway, I've been having a blast with Breakpoint. Really no different than Wildlands transactions and you don't need any of those to play the game. And like the first, it's a blast with friends.

It actually doesn't offer anything on the "Epic Store"

It's a uPlay game, and the version on the EGS isn't an EGS version, it's an uPlay version

Yeah, they did this last time where I mentioned the Season Pass could be purchased on the Ubisoft store yet the announcement just said Epic Games.

I would like to see a more stealth version of Ghost Recon Wildlands.

Never played Splinter Cell: Blacklist though. Might have to go back and take a whack at it.

There are some previews out there, RPS's video is one, where they suggest being stealthy is more important now with bases and against drones. Those new drones/robots feel harder to take down compared to the spongy humans. Avoiding them around bases and in general seem to be the better way to go.

ok, so sell the game cheaper on Epic. If people want to save money and/or love the service, they'll buy it there. But on the flip side, I'm saving money for now as I am going through my library of unplayed games!

I was going to say that the console game installs so much and then you're downloading 30 GBs of additional files and a Day one patch
