DUH, ya think? It has been progressively becoming worse, and we've all been victims of it one way or another. It is a serious issue that does certainly need to be addressed.

There's an old saying, :Believe nothing you hear, and only one half that you see" EAP I think......Heck, I think it is way less than half now.

They say it the loan is just some publicity wizardry to avoid losing money on even more international credibility currency conversion.

Fixed that....

News Comments > Steam Summer Sale Launches
25. Re: Steam Summer Sale Launches Jun 22, 2017, 16:53 MajorD
 

There are some nice discounts on several games in wish list, but I'm not gonna fall for a banana in the tailpipe trick again, and buy more games that I really don't need until I play/finish the ones I purchased from the previous two Steam Sales (Summer & Fall of 2016).

Tempting, but NOPE! not gonna do it......walking away......looks back over shoulder......NOPE....runs away.............................

@Dev: True, good point(s).

@RedEye9: Good/funny videos. Sad but true......

But heck, maybe we'll all be surprised when they announce Half Life 3, Portal 3, and Left 4 Dead Again!

News Comments > John Guthrie Leaves Valve?
10. Re: John Guthrie Leaves Valve? Jun 17, 2017, 11:17 MajorD
 
Hmmmmmm, this exodus has me wondering two things:

1) They've wrapped up the writing, design, etc. of some major forthcoming titles, and from there Valve will just concentrate on the cash cow (Steam) and no longer develop games.

- or -

2) Valve decided to quietly walk away from developing/releasing games and let the cash cow (Steam) roll in the money, which forced all these talented people to say, "F this, if you're not in the business of making great games anymore, we're out of here!"

Sad, I wonder if 'The Freeman' will ever show his face again.

Best FPS Campaign CoOp game ever made! It is better to play the campaign with 1 to 3 other people, as Techland did a great job coordinating that. Other developers should go to school on it.

The wearing out of melee weapons didn't bother me, as there are so many different ones to pick up, along with scrap materials to repair them with.

Nope, definitely region locked ;( And I tried with various anti-region lock sites too.. nothing. In fact ALL Bethesda videos (literally, all of them from their youtube channel) don't work for me.



ERRRRR, well that has got to be frustrating. :-(

So glad Machine Games is developing this series again, as they did such a great job rebooting the series with NO and OB, despite having to use/work with the idTech5 engine......

Fallout VR.....not really liking the first person presence, especially with weapons (especially hand guns) floating in mid air....look too wonky to me. I'll stick to my 28" monitor thank you very much.


Floating guns look weird when you're not in VR. When they move with your hands, your brain immediately accepts it. Also, Raw Data does the "hands and arms" thing and it screws up enough that it's far more distracting than just having the guns floating.

Seriously, BEFORE saying something looks wrong or cheap in VR, how about you actually try it first? You need to give it a good hour's worth of goofing around in it, and THEN ask what few questions you have left. To those of us with VR gear, the CONSTANT asking of questions that are instantly answered by USING VR feels like having to describe every component of a casserole to a picky 5 year old. Just fucking try it, shut your mouth and TRY IT.

Easy there tiger, I said it looked 'wonky' to me, not wrong or cheap. But, now that I've read your post, and others, explaining why it looks that way, it makes sense. So, I'll have to demo some VR goggles to get the true visual experience.

im getting a bit of a Duke Nukem vibe from it... its got an over-the-top action plus weirdo comedy thing going on... seems a bit different than the previous ones

I'm glad Machine Games is continuing with the franchise, as they did a great job reviving it with New Order and Old Blood, but yeah, I agree, hopefully they don't Duke it up too much.

I'm a fan of this series, and this one looks to have good potential, but I just hope it isn't too scripted and bogged down by QTEs.

I got Wolfenstein on a Steam sale last year for cheap, and I was pleasantly surprised how fun and decent it was. That prompted me to get Old Blood, which I thought was even more fun, but too short.

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus is being developed by Machine Games, which is great news, and it is scheduled to release this year (hopefully).

For breakfast a couple times a week, I enjoy FAGE all natural plain Greek yogurt with a little blue agave sweetener, crushed up all natural granola bar, and fresh berries (raspberries, blackberries, and/or blueberries). Healthy, satisfying, and tastes F'ing great!

Well, when you have negative opinions about pretty much everything, your chances of being right about a game not doing well are pretty high.

Oh... look... CJ has a negative opinion on something he hasn't personally experienced. That's a surprise. I literally cannot believe it. I'm so shocked the guy that does nothing but come here to complain about every single thing, the guy who apparently gets joy from nothing other than making us hear his endless diatribes about how he hates everything, hates this game.

Such wonderful contributions.

Yeah, I too found this to be very surprising.

WOW, 25 years? Happy Birthday Wolfenstein 3D!

I remember downloading this from a BBS and was immediately mesmerized and enthralled. That is when my PC gaming addiction all started.

Yes, I feel old now too.

News Comments > Arkane: Steam Refunds = PC Prey Demo
9. Re: Arkane: Steam Refunds = PC Prey Demo May 3, 2017, 11:02 MajorD
 
We couldn't do a demo on both the console and on the PC, we had to choose. And besides, PC has Steam. Steam players can just return the game [prior to playing] 2 hours so it's like a demo already.

I don't know, maybe my coffee hasn't kicked in, but this just struck me as a copout douchebag spin.

Isn't getting a refund through Steam a hassle, or is it pretty painless? Regardless, I think it is douchebag response.

I also want to clarify that there's no PC port. I keep on hearing 'oh they're going to screw up the PC port' there is no PC port. We do the game on PC.

Since when?

It looks almost identical to Grimrock. I like dungeon crawlers and will keep an eye on this. Hopefully it isn't just a rip-off.

Yeah, same thing I thought when I watched the trailer. I think 'Almost Human' resurrected this genre, and did it well I must say.
