If you already own the base game you still may want to do this. It will upgrade you to the Deluxe version once you put in the Steam key.

came here to say this. upgraded mine just a bit ago.

I have averaged just over 156 dollars a year for 14 years. That puts my average game price a hair over 7 bucks. I would have guessed so much more. I actually feel pretty good about it being that low. (grand total of 2168.89)

I tried to like TESO. Like, 5 times. Multiple characters, classes, and races. Probably a good 2 weeks total. I tried really hard. I love TES games. I like a fair amount of MMOs compared to most of my friends. This should have been right up my alley...

What a waste of a game.

I liked it. It has its ups and downs because it is very strong in some gameplay elements and very mediocre at others. It would have been better if it had launched with a Klingon story campaign that was as robust as the Federation one. The crafting at the beginning was...lacking...to say the least. Don't know how much that has changed. I have been gone a year or two and expansions are always a good time to pop in and see what has changed.

There was a time when I thought this game would suck and Champions Online would be awesome. I have the lifetime subscriber status with CO to prove it. That was the third biggest mistake of my life, which is saying something since I was married to the other top 2. I would gladly switch my lifetime sub to STO from CO if I could.

The attempt to divide the state is on the ballot much more often then people think. It feels like every state election has some version of this....

It doesn't work that way Duke. None of this works that way. You should be relieved to hear that, as that means the world is that much safer, but I bet instead your gut reaction is to scrape the bottom of the conspiracy/half truth barrel to support you conclusion.

It's like people want things to be shit. They would rather cling on to the most completely bogus bullshit and be "right" in their own minds then find out they were wrong but the upside is that none of that terrible shit is actually true. If that isn't some sort of psychological issue I am not sure what is.

I don't know what it will end up being, but if you told me it was a cross between Destiny and Titanfall, had unlimited verticality, and took place in an open-world......that sounds like something I would want to play. That second trailer is pretty cool too. EA being involved tempers my enthusiasm and my expectations though.

Yeah but pot isn't legal in the Netherlands, it's decriminalized - to a point. Canada will be the first country where it's completely legal.

Potato potato. You will never get arrested for anything pot related in the Netherlands, unless maybe strangling someone to death with it, and even that's debatable.

Probably depends on who you strangle...

The last one was okay, but I am looking forward to a DOA game built specifically for this generation of consoles. Maybe the PC port won't suck either. Maybe. Okay, maybe not. *shrug*

TBH, I am looking more at Soulcalibur VI as my next fighting game. It has a far better chance of pulling me from Injustice 2 than DOA6. None of them are going to get me to give up Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite anytime soon though. Damn that game is fun.

2. Re: Steam Game Removals Jun 8, 2018, 11:05 Jivaro
 
I guess if they go after the low hanging fruit, games with names that basically advertise their illegal or trolling purpose, they will mostly keep Steam off the mainstream media's radar. If the media can't make a dramatic headline out of the title they are far less interested. Theoretically. If the game was called "Tomato Soup Simulator" that doesn't generate clicks like "Sexing the Neighbor's Wife Simulator" even if the content of the two games are exactly the same.

I mean, that is if you believe Valve is making decisions based on what takes the least amount of effort. Otherwise it doesn't really make sense to get rid of anything that isn't illegal. Censorship takes effort.

Shopping Tip: Firstly, Nine Parchments is a part of the Trine universe. Now, Nine Parchments says it's on sale for 9.99USD, but if you select the Trineverse Bundle instead of the game itself and you already have the Trine games in your library the price for Nine Parchments itself lowers to 6.49USD. Bonus discount for loyal customers I guess.

International House of breakfast. Obviously.

Preparing for their hobbit themed mini-cafes called "IHOsb", or International House of Second Breakfast. Obviously.

All that means is that Valve needs to provide more opportunities for games to gain a spotlight when deserved. Which may be the case, I have never had trouble finding games and have a crazy backlog to prove it. A fair amount of people here seem to believe they are being hindered in the hunt for something of quality to play though and I can't just ignore that opinion. Even so, making it harder to even get your game on Steam in the first place doesn't encourage progress or success and it certainly doesn't make life any easier for indie developers or their potential customers. Not in the current industry and early access being the words of the day.

I don't see how this is bad except for those people who seem to think that it's realistic to demand that everything in front of them be relevant to them and automatically placed on a platter and at the very same time demand that they have complete freedom of choice, a lack of walled gardening, etc etc.

Nothing will ever make those idiots happy because they seem to want two contradictory things. Steam/Valve/Gabe/that desk they roll around in the office...whoever...this was the right call.

my bet would be on another expansion, or even just another class and a small amount of content. Way too soon for D4 by Blizzard's time standards.
