The Leave EU people are the best. They sound like the dumb Texan's wanting to leave the US any time there panties get in a bunch over some trivial BS. Like children throwing a fit at there parents when they are told they have to eat there vegetables, but the child's response is to run away from home and make his own home! With out vegetables being required. That will show'em!! Just stupid.

The EU is not the best, but NO government is, by default. The good thing about the EU is that they can throw judgements at companies who are tax dodging like Apple and more then likely get them to be held accountable. Look at those numbers. That is some serious tax dodging. Its unfair to everyone even to the Irish locals who pay the full normal tax amount.

If the news read, ohh Ireland is suing Apple for back taxes. Nobody really cares outside of Ireland. But the EU says it? There is a TON more weight behind it.

And you cannot throw that 6000 jobs thing at anybody. Same kind of argument is made about the Coal miner's in the US. Its a sad story to see a job go. But ruining everything else for those 6000 jobs is worse.

Spot on. You couldn't get this sort of judgement outside the EU. One country goes it alone, Apple could quite happily back their bags and starve them out, the EU does it and they've got to cough up the cash and there is nothing they can do about it... unless they want to lose access to a market of 550 million (relatively) rich people.

And yet Leave EU keeps parroting the line that the EU does nothing for them. Depressing such limited intelligence exists in the self-styled first world.

So what happened to Relic Games? The guys who made all the THQ games I liked?

SEGA bought them in the THQ fire sale.

"Now they're doing it to Steam"...has steam been broken or gimped in any way with win10? Or is this speculation? I haven't noticed anything change in regards to functionality.

It's been rock solid for me on Windows 10. So much so, I don't even realise it's running.

Settlers died many versions ago Book

Yes The first, second and even third one was really enjoyable - then they tried to add too much stuff in, taking away from the industry-focused economic model with stylized fairytale graphics that was so great.

But a blue florp under a purple sky isn't that different from a cyan florp under a azure sky. Seing a green florp eat purple leaves is not a unique experience from seeing a yellow florp eat blue grass.

I wanna florp

This game failed mainly in part because most everyone was hoping for a Neverwinter Nights successor. Well that never happened, this game was far from what Neverwinter was.

As long as you mean successor to Neverwinter Nights; Mask of the Betrayer. That one was truly awesome - the others? not so much.

If all you see is Cartoon style then I'm sorry for your lack of vision.


Go watch Big Hero 6 and tell me it's just a cartoon.

It's not just a cartoon, it's a crap cartoon.

Although, Homeworld remastered and Homeworld Deserts of Kharak both pretty awesome strategy games imo.

Agreed.

If you actually READ those reviews, many of them ARE bullshit. Complaining about things that aren't reality.

The one's I've read on metacritic are pretty damned accurate; mediocre cover based shooter with a coop mechanic thrown in like a pony with one trick. Likely to have concurrent players numbering in the low 100's within weeks of release.

There is nothing exciting, fresh or innovative about this game. I think the one word I read that summed it up is; tired.

Never understood why boss fights in 'Souls never took inspiration from Dragons Dogma, which is way better at dealing with epic monster battles. Clambering up a giant monster and hanging on while slashing away is way more epic than basically a foot slashing contest.

This scummy little Hawaiian company only pressed the suit after Facebook bought Oculus. The had every opportunity to bring their case prior to this, but entirely failed to do so.

Facebook may have billions in the bank but it seems morally wrong that they should have to pay anything to these cash grabbing thieves. I hope they bankrupt them and get awarded damages.

The movie was terrible. Seems dropping Force Awakens themed DLC at least doesn't associate this lacklustre title with the pile of theatrical faeces.

$50 for the pre-order?? Game looks great but I'm going to wait till its cheaper.

50 USD? You pay more than the UK - it was 29.99 GBP (44 USD) here or 23.99 GBP (35.97 USD) if you've got Homeworld Remastered already in your steam library.

Game looks pretty cool tho - air units more like Total Annihilation and not like most RTS's where they are land units suspended 10 meters above the ground.

That GTA mod is pretty insane. The initial bit where they're fighting in the rain on the freeway is truly a double take moment. It looked like something out of Heat/The Wire
