Is it just me or are the Bundle Stars getting worse and worse all the time?

They've always been pretty ghetto. They do have the very rare sale on something good every once in a blue moon though.

I guess I started following it around the STALKER bundles and I got the FEAR bundle which was a steal. But yeah it seems to be basically bad offerings.

Run out of operating capital, so you gotta ship, even if it's not ready? Maybe they should have done a Kickstarter or Early Access if that was the case? This kind of game would probably work for EA.

I doubt given their stellar track record of releasing absolute turds that they would be able to raise money that way.

I haven't looked at the reviews of XXL so it might be better. However, after trying to play through 75 minutes of XL 2012 I'll never buy this.

Will someone explain why the pre-ground ultra expensive DRM locked coffee scam machine is better than my 10+ year old coffee machine which grinds fresh beans? Seriously is it a lazy thing or am I just not getting the taste?

Yeah I'd jump on that bundle in a second! I'm holding out hope that those are the coming soon games. But alas it won't be so.

Great so any chance of it getting out of alpha before 2020? That being said I played around 40 hours and had lots of fun with it. However it feels rather incomplete because it is.
Do you know how I know you didn't watch the video yet?
Oh, I'm very sorry I didn't watch the whole 30 minute plus video for a game I don't play.

Well I hope it's not just Californy, that would be boring. There's plenty of other places I'd rather drive in the US. And I definitely prefer the flat-faced European style trucks.


I can't seem to find the blog post stating this; however I remember the devs stating that initially ATS will be limited to California, Arizona and New Mexico. The release map will be as big as ETS's is now. Eventually they will add the rest of the U.S. as free and paid DLC. I think they might do Canada as well.

SCS's DLC is some of the few paid DLC that I buy without hesitation Going East was great and I'm looking forward to Scandinavia. I'm expecting very good things from ATS. I really like ETS yet I'm not quite sure why.

Looks a heck of a lot like ETS2
The inside of the truck is still looks so static.
Keep in mind this is from the ALpha build and it looks like they're using some ETS assets as place holders. I'd expect the finished game to look much more American.

Yay, I guess? At no point have I really wanted to buy random virtual goods from other people, especially when it starts mucking with game balance such as in TF2.

Reminds me of when Apple announced years back they had paid out 100 million or so to app devs...

Assuming Valve takes the usual 30%, and round it slightly to 33%, that means they've made 25 million 'free' dollars just for hosting that transaction...

Where does all their money go, if not (many) new features, or games...
Quite a bit of it goes towards paying the credit card transaction fees. Valve still makes some money, but they don't get to keep all of it.

At least in Apple's case, the iTunes store is largely revenue neutral. Fees eat most of it, the rest is spent on app advertising.

How do you know this? It has always been my understanding that Apple is very very secretive about their financials. Also I've read that iTunes takes quite a sizable chunk especially in their music sales.

I wonder if this is actually legal. One could claim this would be like buying a grey market camera. Only to have Nikon come to your house and rip it out of your hands since the guy on eBay wasn't an autherized seller. If this happened with me I'd be on the phone with my lawyer.

This is really shitty of Ubisoft and makes me, again, not want to buy their games.

After seeing the dated graphics the sense of nostalgia dies pretty quick. It'd be nice if they were re-released with updated HD graphics. Look at Resident Evil for example, they can do the same here.

I played rouge Squadron on the N64 and I don't remember it looking that bad! Did the N64 get a graphics update or is my memory clouded by nostalgia?

Interesting stance by Valve.
Tits=censored, extremely graphic
Blowing someone's head off = all good
Welcome to America! We'll sell you a shotgun, all the booze you can drink and a really graphic video game in which you stomp some guys head in. But don't you dare try and see a boob.

That being said don't people know the internet is for porn and Blue's News?

I hear ya about these subcriptions. I want to/ kind of need to get photoshop but I'm sure as hell not paying them a monthly subcription. I suspect that if Micro$oft tries this with 10 it will make 8 look like a massive success.

I'm not sure how deep you want to get into Photoshop, or how much of a power user you are, but GIMP 2 is an open source image editor with a shocking amount of functionality built in for the low low price of completely free. I'm still learning the ropes, but I've been having a great time with it.

I've been using the GIMP and honestly with add ons it does nearly everything I need. But that interface! Oh god it's just horrible!

Some clarification on the Windows as a service comment.

That's downright decent of them. I hope they make the clean installation less fussy with the key. I recall having trouble doing a fresh install of 8.1 with an 8 key whereas updating an 8 install to 8.1 works fine.

That actually really is decent of them. But there has to be a catch there is always a catch.

We weren't satisfied with the rigidity and limitations that most crowd funding platforms presented

Limitations such as being unable to cash out on an obvious scam?

Will the real owners of the STALKER series please stand up and sue them.

I hope Amazon removes all the negative feedback for sellers who canceled the one 1p orders. I also hope that Amazon covers the cost of their pricing errors for orders that were shipped.

I hate when people try to take advantage of such an obvious error and complain about when they're stopped. If the company honors the pricing error great! If not you knew it was an error shut up and realize you were attempting to exploit an obvious mistake.
