These devs are assholes, instead of making it a Coop game, they fucking went for pvp. This is why I did not fund them.
ROFL! I didn't get my way so I'm stomping my feet? Really? They put out stretch goals based off the majority of player interest in order to maximize their kickstarter. More missions...expanded single player...pvp... And the hint of co-op (probably in an expansion). So they're assholes for sticking to what Battletech has always been in tabletop and on computers....and what will actually get the game funded. Gotcha.

One of two kickstarters I backed that I am really excited about. I particularly like how they didn't put up any further stretch goals. Instead they state that any further money will be for polish and co-op PvE.

I finished H2S and the DLC... Genuinely enjoyed it.... 2 should be well worth $15. Too bad I just dropped a few hundred on the Super Dungeon Explore and Battletech kickstarters....

I really enjoy finding old gems like this (or the many on GOG) and getting my kids to play. When they're at the height of a game I tell them that the game is 5-10 years older than they are. Total mental reboot.

Do those entities ask for that information?
They're so far up your ass already that they don't have to ask...

Glad to hear everything went OK, Blue.

News Comments > Another Steam User Record

I use it all the time. Still works well for consolidating games and managing auto-updates across my library. I'm not particularly active in the forums or workshop....but the platform does everything I'm looking for.

With regards to the 'shovelware' comments.... I've been pleasantly surprised by some of the indie titles I've run across for a couple of bucks. It seems fairly easy to ignore the titles that do not interest me. If you guys are this sensitive, I don't know how you guys navigate Amazon.com or walk through a department store....

Same.

I think some of you have an odd take on Twitch. Most viewers don't watch *instead* of gaming. They watch during the time they *aren't* gaming. Sometimes I watch at work. Sometimes I watch while cooking or while getting ready in the mornings. It replaces quite a bit of the non-interactive slots that some people use sitcoms or other television. That said, I do occasionally stop activities in order to watch an important stream like League of Legends world group stage a couple of weeks ago. No different than the time I spend watching Green Bay on Sundays...

ArenaNet: "Thank you, Guild Wars 2 veterans for your money when you bought the base game! We hope you've enjoyed the years of play that came with that purchase. We would like to expand the world, so we're offering an expansion for a reasonable amount of money. In the hopes that you can get your friends involved, we won't punish new players with an obscene entry level fee of $100."

Me: "Easy. I won't buy your expansions. How do you like that?"
There, fixed that for you..... Yeesh, talk about American Entitlement at it's finest.

Linux is the future that's been taking its time coming, but it is inevitable...
Chuckle. How many decades will I have to hear "THIS is the year of Linux on the desktop!" Linux/*NIX/BSD is fun for geeks and programmers. It will never be mainstream without being bundled by a profit driven parent that cares about the user experience (Google. Apple. Amazon.). And in that instance...it really isn't Linux or BSD any more, it is forked into ChromeOS, OSX, or FireOS.

Anyone else remember BeOS? That's the one I really hoped would unseat Windows. sigh.

News Comments > Sword Coast Legends Delay
2. Re: Sword Coast Legends Delay Sep 22, 2015, 12:16 Primalchrome
 
Here were my issues :
- Hopefully their estimate of unveiled content is much higher.
- Netcode seemed buggy....lots of lag and spikes.
- Way too fast paced, though I hear switching to turn based fixes the lag and the fights being over in less than 2 seconds.

The easy fix to me seems to release it with a fully functional (read NOT simple tiles) editor. That handles the content issue. And if turning on turn based mode solves the rest, I'm good to go.

I *really* wish they'd just put out a standalone server and browser. Maybe offer the whole shebang free to anyone that spent more than $10 on it prior....and allow anyone to get the full unlocked version for $5. Essentially let the game go free in the wild rather than let it finally die on the vine.

Between CS:GO and DotA2, Valve is doing a lot to push their competitive gaming scene. Then when you look at all the updates they push into Team Fortress 2 for the casual scene... It's great that they've found a way to monetize these games and keep them relevant year after year.

I never saw the two games as competing. D3 is a different game from TL2 and I think TL2 captures the essence of what I liked about the previous Diablo games better than D3 ever could.
I thought TL2 was a better game than D3. The only thing that they needed to do better was develop a few memorable characters. There was no Deckard Cain analog... Honestly I'm shocked that people still play D3, but it has a thriving fan base. It felt very cardboardy and bland to me.

Laugh. This is exactly what I thought when I read the post. I still play AOE:II and can't understand for the life of me why people thought Starcraft was better. Hell, I thought it was better than Starcraft II as well.
