Anyone who puts the last Indiana Jones movie in the top three, let alone the top two needs to... fuck it this is the guy who let Michael Bay fuck up Transformers.

Yeah, Spielberg has lost it years ago. I'm going to blame the arrival of his kids. I read an interview a while ago that he said that having kids changed how he makes movies. His last truly great movie was Saving Private Ryan in my opinion. That was in 98! All his others are generally "meh" for me.

I find it weird that GoG tries to encourage pre-ordering. They're try to put out this image that they're pro-consumer, but this is clearly against consumer interest.

Well, it's clearly a sales tactic, I agree, but clearly against consumer interest? I'd argue that's not so cut and dry. If you're already leaning towards buying a particular, already released game, and are interested in one of the upcoming titles, and those two happen to intersect in one of these sales, then you're saving money. (not counting some larger percentage sales months/years from now)

If you're on the fence, then maybe it's not so appealing, sure. Obviously if you hate one of the games in the combo, then it'd be a pure turnoff.

I wish they had that Absolver/Furi deal up during the Steam sale though, I probably would have picked it up.


There's definitely some value here, but I feel that pre-orders with incentives are fundamentally a way to trick you into shelling money for a product when you don't know everything you should about it. It's deceptive and shady. And if you think that it's just like early access(you probably don't), I disagree, because you can play early access games immediately and it's understood that they're unfinished and will change significantly.

I haven't bought an EA game since 2014, and it was Dragon Age Inquisition, which I didn't like.

Every year since the xbox has been introduced, Microsoft has vomited these lies while consistently doings things that are against the interest of PC gamers. I've seen it happen and I remember.

And they wonder why VR is tanking. Who want to plat this scheisse, much less pay for it?


I thought that it was a really good fit for VR. One of the main problems with VR is movement. The type of game this is makes the weird teleport movement that most VR games do non-weird. The game itself looks boring and uninspired though :p

RPG? Right... This is a sports/strategy game with RPG elements. Zero interest. I respect these guys though, I'm sure the game will get good reviews, but I'm just not a big fan of them. I'm one of those who didn't like Bastion. I thought that it was boring and had bad controls.

Ah okay, never bothered with no weapon degradation mods. Vendors sell oranges like they're candy, and the few yellows I have, I just refurbish through the blue shield vendors when they break, so eh.


The crazy high weapon degradation is the main reason why I stopped playing the game. I love these types of games, and I even loved Dead Island, which also had weapon degradation, but I hate the way it's implemented in Dying Light to the point that I didn't like the game. It's not like I didn't give it a chance either, I got 11 hours of playtime. I heard about that mod a little while ago and I planned to play it again, but now screw it.

It's really not that high, though. You need to slaughter like 400 zombies for an Orange to break fully, and even then you can just refurbish it again. (and again, and again, and again, ad infinitum.)

I don't know about that, but my experience was, take best weapon, upgrade it, hit 10 times with it, it's broken, slide kick about a million times.

I like Neil, and I'm a big proponent of science, but I have zero faith in his game. The guy knows nothing about games and the Kickstarter pitch was vague and reminded me of No Man's Sky. I don't know which studio is supposed to make it, but there's no way it's big/experienced enough. I have even less faith in George's ability to help development.

I haven't played any COD in years, because, WHY???? But this game has always looked more like the classic arena shooters to me. Way faster and crazier that all the modern COD clones. Plus, it has pretty original features and the net code seems good, which is a major achievement. If I had to play a modern competitive shooter, this would be it. Now they're adding a full coop mode for free? I actually feel pretty bad that I'm not giving them money to encourage what they're doing. I just don't have the time to play a game like that.

Can't wait for this game. It looks so much like Dragonball Z Hyper Dimension, which I consider the best DBZ game of all time.

Could never wrap my head around the show which seemed to involve large amounts of time with two characters posing in front of each other followed by a lot of glowing and screaming... = \

Yeah, they're known for stretching one action sequence over 10 episodes. They re-released the whole series in blueray under the "Kai" name. It's a remastered version, but most importantly, it cuts almost all the filler and makes everything much tighter. You could try that. The new series, Dragonball Super, has at least something important happening in every episode. There's still some filler episodes I could do without though. Still love it.

I played it for a while a few months back. It was fun for a couple dozen hours but then it just gets SUPER grindy to make any progress without spending money. And I found the AI to be annoying. You spend all this time laying out traps and the AI will just go around it or break a hole in the wall and avoid everything you laid out. Smart for the AI? Yeah. Fun for the player? Not so much.

I don't like laying traps or tower defense, will I like this game?

The trailer was pretty hard to watch, but a coop survival game from a more experienced studio is something I should keep an eye on.

I like the gameplay of games like Stardew I just can't stand the graphics. I hate that cutesy style crap. I'd love to see a game like this with a bit more realism graphically. Something like Fallout or NWN with being able to do all this sort of crafting.

I personally like it, but I get what you're saying. They did do some 3D Harvest Moon games and in my opinion, unfortunately, it changed the gameplay for the worse. It's like 2.5D platformers vs 2D ones. the 2.5D ones never feel as good, or at least, they feel like different games. From my elder scrolls modding experience, I think that what you want would be a pretty easy mod to do. I've had this idea a long time ago and I'm surprised there's nothing yet.

Here's the review - from a month ago - that really dissuaded me...

I guess that if you were a kickstarter backer, you might be annoyed. But the way I see it, I paid very little for a game that I loved. I then got several massive updates that warranted new playthroughs, at no extra cost. The next update comes out soon and I'm going to play it during a small lan party. This is the best game there is for coop lans and lans are essentially one the funnest things one can do in this world... Can't complain. I see it from a different perspective: the full game was released years ago. They've also released huge free DLCs. I don't give a damn if they call it alpha, beta or whateva... But you decide.

I'm not defending their price jump, but I can probably guess why the price increased and the timing.

They very well could lose their retail shelf space if the digital version is selling below the retail price (and it's not a temporary sale), hence the price jump.

As for the timing, Steam has a policy that you can't put your game on sale within 30 days of a price jump. I'm guessing they want to do a launch discount and their launch is just a little over a month away.

If they didn't announce the price jump, it could be because they didn't want people who were waiting for the exit of early access to buy the game at the reduced price.
