Dont forget these come with Telemetry imbeded in them to send data to nvidia every hour.

PC Gamer: Nvidia's telemetry monitor is not spying on you

Ok, yes, I know, you're technically correct, they are transmitting stuff, but no more than they have for years now.

I used that beating heart to analyze every opponent's true heart. Evil guys (like "He will end 2 more lives before going to bed tonight") I killed. Others (like "He works two shifts only so he can feed his family") I knocked out or ignored.

What? Never heard of that heart thing! In the first game, if you killed a lot, the entire game would change. Things would look darker, and there'd be more rats, dead people and destruction. I wonder if you only killed bad people, did it still make the world darker? Even brighter than if you killed no one?

Good news - they actually are making it work like that in Dishonored 2 - if you kill the bad folk, it generates less chaos than if you kill the good folk, according to what the heart determines about them.

I have a large hunch that they're announcing Diablo 4. Admittedly that's based purely on a tweet from the official account the other week that asked what was your favourite part of D3 using the ThrowbackThursday tag - referring to D3 as well and truly in the past, and not a current game. But hey, that's what I'm going with.

Didn't you need an SSD to get over the terrible popup in the first game? Maybe that's their hook

It looks more like a rollercoaster with maybe some minimal button inputs for things that cross the track but that's it.

I'll grant you here, I haven't played it (the price tag is sadly just too high), but from what I understand you've kinda summed it up. The bit you might be missing and I guess don't pick up unless you have played it is that the beat of the music only happens when you get the timing right in the jumps/grinds etc, so when it's right it "feels" good. The only other gameplay is the boss fights at the end of each level - you have to complete a set of obstacles correctly to fire an attack at the boss.

It's essentially a twisted version of the old Audiosurf games. Another equivalent I can think of is the BIT.TRIP RUNNER games - the sound your runner makes as you avoid each obstacle matches the music, and is a minor reward for avoiding each obstacle correctly.

I reckon it's more about the aesthetic anyway - if you love the foreboding music and generally evil look of it, you'll dig the game.

RPS (among many others) have a review of it that might help explain some more.

I've been hyped about this for months, but then realised that the day it comes out I have to visit my in-laws a few hundred miles away for five days, so I'm gonna be gritting my teeth..

Since everybody seems to be jumping around in pure excitement because of the announcement that Steam will soon preload this game...

From the perspective of a PC gamer: has anybody actually seen footage of the PC version being played by mouse (not a stupid controller), and if yes, please point me to the source.

Because if this hyped-to-heaven console port looks like a simple console port and plays best with a controller I'll PASS.

I'll grant you I haven't seen it played with M+KB, but given the game is made by the same team as it's predecessor, and that game's PC controls were just fine, I don't think we haven't anything to worry about.

If I have any concerns, it's that they might bungle the performance on launch like they did with Human Revolution. The stuttering in that took them a fair few weeks to fix. Here's hoping history doesn't repeat itself.

VaranDragon wrote on Aug 12, 2016, 06:16:
So they already know the size of all the extra DLC that they are going to produce??? Or is it the preorder DLC or what?

Probably, yes. I'm sure at least a chunk of the DLC is already made or at least quite far along. Handwave a little worst-case estimation, and boom, there's your figure.

I did note that Green Man Gaming have two of the weapon DLCs up on their store already. Hadn't seen them announced anywhere else. No price or anything, just "coming soon." I've no care for them myself, I only want actual gameplay, but heyho.

I had 2 on Games for Windows, which was the only way to have it. I think I bought it boxed, maybe? Maybe I did have it Steam but it needed Games for Windows? Or I got a free code somewhere? I'll need to see if I have it on Steam. The others I had for the 360.

Good news - they converted the retail keys to Steam keys and excised GfWL. Try activating it on Steam, I believe it should work.

It's not noted here (unless I fail at reading comprehension), but these are all also free if you own the games on Steam (end of third paragraph) - so might be worth picking them up during the Summer Sale if you're interested.

For anyone interested, the other dev has been replying in this thread, though he mostly says/repeats "I'll make a statement, but not yet, waiting on getting more info."

Download link doesn't work for me. I guess I missed it.

Mm, no, the site looks different than it did when I looked this morning. There were separate links for each prize "package" that you clicked - there was no "Download Now" button, which is new and, as you can see from hovering over it, appears to go to a Google search string. Seems they're rejigging the site maybe? They've had a lot of demand..

News Comments > Hitman GO: Definitive Edition Next Week
7. Re: Hitman GO: Definitive Edition Next Week Feb 16, 2016, 03:49 MoonSpook
 
I loved Hitman: GO on Android. It looks great in it's own art style, and the gameplay, although not too difficult for the most part, does make you think. Lasted me a fair few hours, too, and the only microtransaction it had (after ponying up for the game itself) was being able to unlock hints.

The only thing that made me despair was all the reviews on the Play Store exclaiming how it was terrible because it wasn't like the mainstream Hitman games...

As for it coming to Steam, it's a different market so I don't know how well it'll do, but I'm glad it's going to be there. Plus, it may mean Lara Croft: GO comes to Steam too, which is also a great little game.

This looks like yet another fantastic patch of content. I have the habit of waiting until a patch comes out, playing so much I burn myself out (3-4 weeks, playing every day) and then not coming back until the next patch, but damn if this video doesn't make me salivate.

Can we just get a final Yes/No on another expansion???? Please Blizz?


I'm similar. I went nuts on it recently (or as nuts as I can when I'm looking after a 2-year-old), then played some other random game and simply didn't go back to it. Have done that a few times since it was released.

Also was very surprised they didn't announce an expansion at Blizzcon last October. Felt like the right time for it, but nope, just info about a patch. Very curious.

One of the Blizzard chaps on Twitter did say that there's a "ChoGall" chat channel you can /join with folk willing to group up for it, if that's any help, too.

I dunno about you guys, but the Celebration Package appears to be perm? I used it once, and it's ended, and I still have it. So, basically, it's 10% extra XP forever.

If you follow the link, the item does say that it requires WoW's 11th Anniversary - in other words, it'll disappear from your inventory after the event ends (in just under a fortnight). Take advantage for your alts while you can

The title says Fall, but the actual linked article and email says Spring.

That's a long way out.

Australia's Spring is the Northern Hemisphere's Fall/Autumn, as Blue's description says.
