I'll buy ebooks in bundles, but never one-offs. Part of the reason is that the price is the same. Publishers need to make ebooks half the price of print if they want sales to improve.

As for ereader sales plummeting, duh. Just like tablets, it was the new hotness, now cooling. Lots of people tried them, decided they didn't like them. For those that did, these are pretty robust devices. If you bought one a few years ago, it still works for the vast majority of people.

Hey cool, I didn't know there were other bundles. I only always bought the book bundles from Humble (I mean real books, not comics or audio books or something). Thanks!

I'm pretty happy with my kobo. Always keep it in my bag, although it can be pretty slow. I'll probably buy a new e-reader some day but so far there is no reason to do that.
Maybe the new kindle. I'm not keen on the monopoly amazon has on the e-reader market right now.

Pretty sure I'm going to get this one. After I played Risen I got bored by PB's games, although Gothic is my most favourite gamer ever and I told myself I'd always buy everything they make.
Well, ended up buying everything they made anyway and now I'm going to buy this.

Meanwhile Netflix offers less than 30% content in Germany while being more expensive.

Yeah, I dunno. I enjoyed The Force Awakens a lot. I loved that movie. I also liked Rogue One, although not as much as TFA. I'm really, really looking forward to episode 8, have been since I saw episode 7.

Yeah everyone loved TFA. They loved it the first time they saw it 40 years ago.

I saw A New hope in the mid-90s or something like that. I didn't even like Star Wars when I saw it for the first time.
And yeah, TFA was basically A New Hope. Don't really care about that, it was still an awesome movie.

Why reboot? Why not acknowledge that SW:TOR was a mistake and then make a KOTOR3 instead?

Wasn't there a free weekend just a couple of months ago? Hmm... or maybe that was in summer. I don't remember.

I remember trying it and... well, I was not that impressed. But then again, I automatically compare these kinds of games to ARMA3 and so far nothing CAN compare to ARMA3, it's still king. So I'll stick with that.

10,000 funded game projects, 200 of which actually shipped. GG Kickstarter.

Was just going to say "How many actually produced a viable product?"

Re-reading my comment now, it is not entirely clear that I was being sarcastic, in case you took that literally. I'm sure more than that have shipped out of 10k. It's easier to point the finger in the other direction because we are more likely to hear about the games that met their goals and turned into scams or ended up a victim to poor planning, on news sites like Blues, than to observe whether each game being released is a kickstarter success story or not.

Nah, I was going to post the same, sarcastic comment. I think we're all on the same page here.

Kickstarter provided us with some awesome games, like Carmageddon and this influx of CRPGs. But a lot of things also went terribly, terribly wrong.

This video is dramatically better than all previous videos we've seen. I'm still left wondering why I should play this if I played Q3 to death and I'm tired of it. Also, 3 rockets for one kill? That seems like too much.

I would love to have a Quake e-sports scene again. I miss watching Q3 matches, the WCG, the CPL...

Also if he recently picked up Mega and Red Armour it would take three rockets. That guy took 100+94+100 damage.

I hope it will be possible to have a "clean" version of this game, without damage numbers and stupid announcements.

It's been at least 15 years since I last played Torment. Im definitely interested in how I would enjoy the game today. I passed on Numenora, not "Tormenty" enough for me. I dug the shit out Tyranny, but it was a combat heavy game, with a very good ruleset. I wonder if I'll enjoy this again. The 2nd edition D&D ruleset is kind of shit, but I still managed to enjoy all these games back in the 90s.

I loved Tyranny and yeah, it was a combat heavy game. I found the combat in Torment to be good but, to be honest, I tried to avoid combat as much as possible. I only dabbled in Planescape Torment and the new Torment game is definitely different but I'm enjoying it a lot.

Personally I liked Wasteland 2 and Pillars of Eternity but to me those two games were kind of warm ups for the teams. Tyranny and Tides of Numenera are a lot better and I'm looking forward to Pillars of Eternity 2. Wasteland 3 is going to be interesting, too.

The one thing I miss from the Baldur's Gate games is the Vancian magic system that is used in the D&D games but I like what they replaced it with.
Although, when looking at modern CRPGs, I like the combat from Divinity: Original Sin most.

News Comments > Brian Fargo to Retire After Wasteland 3

Wasteland 2 was good. It was not great, I didn't finish it but it was a good game, a fun experience.

I'm having fun with Torment right now. I'm a couple of hours in and it's good so far. Don't get why it only has a mixed rating on Steam. I read the first view lines of the first negative review I came across and they complained that it's a short game with only 30 hours.

I'm actually kinda glad. I don't have time for really long games anymore so it's a plus in my book. And I wouldn't call 30 hours short anyway.

Wow... rest in piece, Chuck Berry. You were a pioneer of rock music.

Right on, (well, except it's peace not piece) I've always felt Chuck didn't get the accolades he deserved. George Thorogood always gave him his due. I believe this is a quote from George on Chuck Berry: the most important rock guitarist of all time. Hes the man. Hes the link between blues and rock and roll. He never gets enough credit for it. Guitarist

Thanks, corrected my spelling, it was late yesterday.

I'm torn between whether he is as recognised as he is important or not. Only after I studied a bit of his music with my guitar teacher I realised how incredibly influential he has been and that almost all modern guitarists owe him a lot.
Just this morning I told my girlfriend when we listened to Johnny B. Goode (it was interesting, that song came on and when I switched stations after the song was over the other station immediately played that song, too) that you probably wouldn't realise what kind of effect his style of playing had on modern music if you didn't play guitar or were a musician yourself. So I think that has something to do with that, too.

Not getting my hopes up but I will wait for the final product before I form an opinion.
Already not a great start that it's going p2w f2p, though.

Got my KS key yesterday and played for a bit. It feels really good. The movement is good, the shooting feels nice, overall a great experience.

Being in small, tight spaces with enemies surrounding you is quite unnerving, too. Had some fun times.

Really excited for this. I played the last closed alpha and there was indeed a lot of work to be done but it was incredibly fun. The shooting was really good and the pacing of the game was acceptable (compared to Quake 3 CPMA/Quake 2/Warsow there aren't any fast shooters availale anyway).

Do Cellphones Cause Cancer? Most likely not.

Most studies that were done, the ones that showed a correlation and the ones that didn't show a correlation, were flawed.
Additionally, the predictions that were made about the how certain types of cancer would become more frequent but the rates do not increase, actually.

Furthermore the radiation emitted by cellphones is non-ionising. Ionising radiation probably starts above 1PHz, around were ultra-violet light is. Normal light is below that, infrared is below and that the frequencies that are used by mobile phones, afaik a couple GHz, are below that.

Man, the only good shooter last year was Shadow Warrior 2.
However, I also loved the Lawbreakers Alpha.

Dirty Bomb was good but the F2P/P2W element killed this game for me. Too much grind, stupid unlock system. I would've much preferred just to pay 40 for it and be done with it. But now, they had to be greedy.
