This doesn't at all concern me since I don't run GoG galaxy at all to play my games. No Cloud saves for me, only local storage and stand alone installers. Still I am surprised people keep such massive amount of saves. I at best use 3-4 manual slots and whatever the auto save does and possibly a quick save slot or two. All my CDPR games are all under the 200MB limit except one game that uses about 800MB.

You have to kind of wonder if they don't want to spend the resources on it because the Windows version runs perfectly in proton. Still I think it's kind of a dick move since it was part of the kickstarter promise and even if you say only working, tested, and support for a particular linux distro version, I don't see why they won't just compile a version for those OSes.

That just simply means they will kill off the servers soon but don't want to stop selling it. I still have to give them some credit for adding the single player, it's better than what Ubisoft did with "The Crew".

Just finished binge watching it even went so far as to pay for ad free just to get dolby vision (f**king amazon pay walling the dam best HDR for my TV) and I loved it. My only complaint was where are the giant scorpions? As far as the female lead I have to say it was great IMHO because I made a female character in Fallout 4 and she kinda looked like her.

If by 'the same stuff Ubi does' you mean 'idiotic but easy to ignore', then I am still in. Capcom put really stupid microtransactions in Devil May Cry 5 yet I didn't feel remotely compelled to use them. I saw them, cursed under my breath and never thought about them again. It helped that the game was so damn good.

On the subject of Dragon's Dogma 2, I have to say that I love the idea of no fast travel. Nothing kills immersion more than that feature in my opinion. I know it's a very different game, but I never once used fast travel in Cyberpunk 2077. I felt compelled to travel every meter myself. Everyone is different though so that's a pretty bold decision and I applaud them for it.
Yeah you can buy with real money stuff you have to grind for in game. It's stupid and a big issue not because it's there and you can ignore it, but it's there and therefore capcom will mod protect the game so they can keep that revenue stream in place. Cause why would you let someone use a cheat or QOL mods in a single player game when you can demand they pay for it?

There is fast travel in the game, but like the first game you will have to find out how it works and most likely won't be usable till the late game. And there is a "slow" travel ox cart you can get on that is available in the day time.

WotC probably doesn't want to let them make any DLC or BG4 either. BG3 basically killed their online game thing that they were making.

Actually I find that the way Rockstar handled the GTA Vice City music licensing thing on steam just as big a problem. Sure they didn't stop selling it but they actually removed music content from people who bought the game ages ago due to their license expiring. I get that they can't sell new copies to people with that music but they shouldn't have been able to rip the music out of my local copy and call it an "update".

But why would the Super Bowl make Arkham Knight more played? Wouldn't it impact all games mostly equally?

At the moment, Suicide Squad isn't in the top 100 games being played. It's 10:15 on a Monday, but still. It's below Russian Fishing 4 and something just called Squad. It has 2,020 players at the moment. Arkham Knight has 3,176, so over 50% more. Arkham City GOTY has 1,266, and even Arkham Origins has 864.

Arkham Knight's 24 hour peak is higher than Suicide Squad, though only by about 25%, and its all time peak is over twice what Suicide Squad's is.
For a game that seems to rely upon recurring revenue, rather than a one-time sale, that's already kind of bleak.
Not saying it's the reason, but big events can cause people to do other things especially if they are playing a coop game where they might be waiting on some people to log back in. And 10:15 (I am assuming AM) on a Monday would also prevent coop for a lot of people who should be at work. I am sure Suicide Squad is actually not doing well, but if you want numbers that matter, it's best to do 24hour peaks not just current ones on a weekday. Check the peak tomorrow for today that should be a better measure.

Is it really anything to be concerned about? The article was published on Superbowl Sunday, so I don't see how it is an indicator of anything other than someone thinking it would make a great click bait article since there would be a big drop of US players over this particular weekend. Just saying it wasn't just a normal weekend in the US anyway.

Lets be truthful here. This is more Discovery noticing that removing people's paid content on a platform they sold to them due to their desire to monopolize the content on their streaming service was a bad idea once the public started screaming, "it's back to piracy for us". This "license update" from them to Sony was only given because they don't want people to have a righteous justification for people to stop buying digital content and going back to piracy.

I am cautiously optimistic with this news. I have some hope because Cavill is a fanboy of Warhammer but I am cautious because Amazon is the wallet. If Amazon starts giving too many "suggestions" that can't be ignored or it will pull the show, then it won't matter how much of a fanboy Cavill is he will have to comply or be removed and then it will go the WoT/LOTR route.

I mean look at whats happening with Dead Pool 3. Uggh. That should be a slam dunk of a movie to just follow the previous two installments, but now it's looking like it's going to get Disney-fied.

I urge anyone to NEVER use this feature. I am sure in the EULA it will state that by using this feature you are giving EA permission to use your voice likeness forever for free.

Where do you people find the time to game on your Steam Deck? Seriously, I mean if I have an hour or two free to game (which has grown increasingly rare these days) I usually sit down on my gaming PC to do it. Anything less than that is usually better spent on my kindle or phone or whatever and just isnt worth the effort. Not criticising, just perplexed and amazed that people game on handhelds.
Can't say for others, but for me it shows it's worth when I do my laundry or if I have my machine busy doing something like converting some video files/rendering etc.., where I wouldn't want to play a game on it and slow things down.

Yeah but subscription(s) can be part and also not part of the package. Sure you can buy it for $200 but that of course comes with some well placed ads in various places. If you want the ad free version, not only will you need to login to a MS account, but also pay them a ad removal subscription monthly fee. See that's how you can do it and still claim no no subscription required to use it.

Look at Amazon Prime, sure you pay a yearly fee that keeps getting increased more and more, but it still wasn't enough for Amazon they want more of your money. So look sure you get prime video for free with the full prime subscription, but even though they have raised their prime subscription fees the past 3 years (IIRC) they probably figured out that hey no one is going to like them increasing it for a 4th year in a row so they decided to inject ads into the prime video and of course they can remove it for you if you also pay yet another monthly fee. So yeah technically Prime is the same price as last year, but not really.

I wanted to buy this for a while, but I won't spend a 1 cent on a online only game. Now once the patch drops and is confirmed to work offline I'll grab the complete edition on sale then.

I was already planning to move to Desktop linux by October 2025 due to Win 10 EOL. I was thinking maybe a preview of Win 12 would show up before with something that might make me want to stay, but if this leak is true, nothing they could offer would make me use it. The only real bad thing is I lose Directory Opus as my file manager. I think the various ones I have tried under linux are mediocre at best.

Yeah I'd dump unity if I was using it for something immediately. It would suck if you were in the middle or close to the end but there is no way I'd trust any company that would change their pricing policies retroactively. Someone in management thought this was a great idea, but this is probably going to bankrupt them in the long term. No one is going to trust them going forward that they might not do this again in the future even if they do walk it completely back to their previous policy. Trust is something you lose in a second, but takes years and years to build. Good luck to them trying to build that back up while maintaining some kind of income.

I waited for a year before I signed up to steam. I was one of the ones that didn't like the idea of digital distribution because of ownership rights. It took till Oct 2004 before I ended up caving. That was still the time when Valve still kept promising that if they ever went out of business they would provide a way for game purchasers to play the games they bought. Shame they reneged on that promise ever since they changed the ToS that everything was not a "Purchase" but a "Subscription to".

I think the guy might have done the right thing reporting the crime, but he definitely deserved to get banned for bragging about being the one who snitched on him. If you do something "right" in a manner that seems more like you want the accolades for what you did, then you shouldn't expect to be thought of in a good light. The ban on the subreddit is perfectly justified IMO given the topic is about leaks. And every leak is technically illegal in some manner because it breaks a NDA, ToS, or EULA that the leaker is a part of. If every leaker posting were held accountable to the NDAs they broke they'd all be in legal jeopardy in one way or another, so you wouldn't want a potential narc in there that is willing to rat them out for the bragging rights.
