Yeah for 2 clams I got it. I'm always surprised there are more board games converted to video games.
I've never been blown away by a video game port of a board game. You can't replicate the feel of dice and such in a video game and for me that an essential part of a board game.

I've heard very very good things about the board game but nothing about the video game. People seem to like it on STEAM.

Now that refunds are so much more accessible hopefully publishers will learn that they can't get away with this nonsense.
I hope so as well. However, telling us to wait for a patch before giving refunds won't cause that. A game should play "out of the box" on day 1 without significant pactches. Telling us to wait so they can fix their broken game is which never should have gone gold is poor form.

Perhaps sales and bundles aren't the real problem. Perhaps the real problem is that some people in the video game industry believe they're entitled to $50+ for a copy of their new game, no matter how long it has been out or what platform(s) it is on. Add to that the cost of the inevitable DLC and/or expansion packs and that game's cost surges well past $100 before it's all said and done. Sorry, but without bundles, discounts, sales and GotY editions, I, and many others like me, would buy far fewer games.
Exactly! the problem is also the steady creep up of prices. Remember when you could get a new game for $40 and no additional DLC? Yeah its the greed of publishers/ devs that have gotten us to this point not sales.

I thought this was the weakest sale. So many companies pulled weird things with their pricing that it really got insulting. Do they think we can't see through their BS discounts? Also so many things were on sale for the exact amount as previous sales or sometimes more. The number of games that have less of a discount on this sale then previous ones is truly staggering. It's times like these that Enhanced Steam saves your skin. Also far too many early access games were featured and far too many 20-40% discounts as dailys or flashs.

I did get Ground Zeros and The Withcer 1 and 2. I'm on the fence about Grim Fandango. It's a good price for what should be a good game but I can't shake the feeling it'll be back on discount for the exact same amount or probably less fairly soon.

oh nevermind, apparently IGN actually played the game, which gives them a leg up so far on every single person giving armchair appraisals on here. they gave it an 8.0

IGN also pisses itself for the latest COD big dev clone so I wouldn't trust them to review anything.

Do these survival games ever come out of Early Access? Seems like there are umpteen number of them popping up every month, and they remain EA indefinitely. Yet people seem to flock to them.

There were a few I wanted to buy, but the EA tag kept me away. I took several bad purchases in past sales to teach me my lesson. I'd rather just wait until the xmas sale and see if they've left EA. Seems like the daily deals and flash sales had a large percentage of early access titles.

I'm getting so sick of early access games. I don't like the idea of paying for demos especially bug riddled ones. At first I thought it would be good but so much crap goes on e.a. that I no longer think its a worthwhile purchase. It does seem that a significant chunk of the sales were made up of e.a. games. Between that and the pricing shenanigans, by various companies, I think this was the worst sale yet.

And this is why you don't design by committee. They obviously had no vision or passion. The most successful things come about because of those two things. Someone asked John Lennon once how the Beatles wrote so many hits. He replied, they never tried to write hits. They were just writing music they themselves wanted to hear. And being for average working class lads there were millions just like them around the world who wanted the same thing.

But yeah, I guess it's everyone else that's the problem for not realizing they're hipster geniuses.

Exactly! One of my favorite Mexican places they guy started it because he couldn't find the type of Mexican food he used to eat as a kid in my area. So he started a restaurant and it's done pretty well. You can't appease everyone so do what you do best. God these guys sound so freaking stuck up.

The PR company probably didn't do a good job cause I never heard of the game before coming here. Also why only an ad on RPS? They love this type of quirky game. Why not reach out to them and ask them to play a preview copy?

Are we that jaded? We complained about them nerfing a direct walk through in the last one. So, of course, we will complain about them addressing that. Also, keep in mind they said that this was a walk through designed to show off Adam's powers.

They're referring to "active" video games using the Kinect like Just Dance and whatever else. It's still total nonsense and ignores the important face to face socializing that people do in sports but whatever.

I don't have face to face time in road running. Does that make it any less of a sport?

Overtly oppressive corporate run society or not I could live in that world, everything is so clean.

I want to play this with the Oculus Rift and a barf bucket right next to me.

Move to Singapore in that case. Corporal punishment for littering. It's a very clean, very orderly city, and all you have to do is submit to the will of the state and give up your basic civil liberties.

You should read Freedom for Sale by John Kampfner. I think you'll enjoy it. I think you'll enjoy it Cutter and agree with a lot in it.


As for the game it's self I'm really looking forward to it!

Ugh, I know Mass Effect is very soft scifi, but the trailer bothers the hell out of me. It presumably takes place hundreds of years after Mass Effect 3, during a time period where the races of our galaxy developed the technology for intergalactic travel (tech which even the Reapers did not have). Yet Hero McBadass still has the N7 logo centuries later and is still using an Omni Blade.
They're continuing the commitment to weak ass writing and illogical writing that defined the end of ME3.

When I first went cordless Hulu provided a large part of my streaming TV. Then the ads got worse and the restrictions on shows started. I briefly looked into Plus but people told me not to bother as the ads are almost as bad as they are on free. It's not that people are confused about Plus as much as it just sucks. Of course regular Hulu sucks too.
