Yea let's see, dump an extra workload,(with no additional compensation) on a wide swath of employees, give them gatekeeper status, sure, no way those lowbies might take bribes from nefarious site owners to promote their sites.

SOMA

The live action teasers were way more interesting than 90% of the game.

I thought the exploring the sunken ship was the most well done part of the game, while the rest was pretty boring typical walking simulatior in second rate FPS Shooter maps.

Great bargin bin game, no where near AAA value.

Ha Ha Ha, As If those Steam reviews were a good indicator of game quality and fun or how so many Steam titles won't install, or run, or run in various screen resolutions.

To get the real skinny on any Steam game on sale:

- always filter the Steam reviews for the negative ones first. Look for repeated mention of technical issues, and core gameplay criticisms, then go check the positive reviews.

- check the community discussion board, look for any of these bad signs: game won't run/install in Win10, game won't run in certain resolutions, major in-game bugs.

- go to Youtube, search the game title followed by "gameplay". Actual game play is always better to judge a game by than reviews which tend to be dominated by people with other agendas.

Just more PR-droid speak that sounds like they are getting rid of the loot box system, while in reality they are just slightly re-arranging the cups hiding the pea.

I just finished playing through the original. It was definitely a classic, but not without it's flaws.

My favorite thing about this game was the enemy AI was pretty advanced for a late 90s era game. Groups would split up, use cover, and flank you if possible. Their main weakness was you could snipe them from cover at a distance with impunity.

It had Lots of glitches involving NPCs or items not spawning at the right time, thus preventing completion of certain quest lines. It also had really clunky sluggish wsad control, and awful aiming.

Based on the early reviews, none of that has changed, it is straight up re-skin only, so I am going to pass at this point.

Its all over folks. PC gaming has gone full mass market, just like the web did. It was fun when it was populated by enthusiasts and first adopters, but once it became mainstream, the Korporations bought up everything and now put the screws on to squeeze out all they can from the mouth breathing, ill educated unwashed masses.

It tells me whoever actually coded this, has a fleeting grasp of BSG.

  • New Galactica vs old style 70s toaster starbases

  • No flack screens

  • Fewer fighters on screen than Xwing vs Tie Fighter

  • Capital ships that completely vaporize after a few hits with no discernible previous damage



  • I have seen way better BSG portrayals in player created mods for various old school space sims.

    Gotta love the last paragraph about Evocati in Wikipedia:

    "The name evocati was also applied to a select body of young men of the equestrian order who were appointed by Emperor Domitian to guard his bedchamber."

    I find it truly amazing that other online players like Facebook, Google, Amazon, etc. have not caught on to this microtransaction gambling scam.

    These games are getting tons of cash by selling chances to get some fluff.

    Amazon could do it too except substitute chances for x,y or z actual products, ie, make it $2.50 a chance, for a $15.00 actual product, with the hidden odds at something like 10 to 1.

    As a low end computer owner that likes to play games, I would buy more if I could quickly filter out games based on their requirements. In my case, if a game requires a cpu => 3mhz or => 4 GB ram, it won't run on my potato. The closest their filters now come to this is to sort games by release date. Most games pre 2009 run just fine on my old gear.

    I fucking hate their business model, selling ppl paint jobs, ship spoilers and other useless crap...but if you don't really want to do spreadsheets in space, this is it...at least until Star Citizen comes out.

    The main issue with cosmetic items for cash, is that before you know it, the games core development grinds to a snails pace, because the devs are working overtime grinding out funny hats and shinies for the cash shop. There are new items in the cash shop at a furious pace, while bug fixes and core game development take a back seat. The game becomes from the publishers view, a fancy themed lobby for the cash shop profit center.

    Now that Korporate and Robber Barons can do what they wish with no more regulation, it is a race to see who can erect barriers and put up toll booths the fastest on any thing that was once a commons.

    You don't think the chocolate factory would turn down a substantial "investment" from a flush advertiser who would like its adds to get preferential treatment, naw, no example of that kind of shenanigans in our history.

    Its kind of sad how almost all of the money grubbers running big game houses have seen how successful a few MOBAS have been that now no matter what type of game franchise, from MMOs to RTS, they sink the most development resources into trying to make those games more MOBA like.

    Imagine if your local library used the same logic. Cookbooks out circulate all other types/genres of books, so from here on out, the library will only add books that include recipes. Does that new SciFi book have any recipes in it, because if it does not, the library won't stock it.

    If game companies want to make MOBAS, fine, but stop trying to shoehorn every other well established game type into that mold.

    Been supplying Microsoft with a years worth of telemetry from my home HP Pavilion notebook. So Win 10 was slurping all this information so they could anticipate and fix issues faster etc. Ha... Win 10 Content Creators update is a total fiasco on my Pavilion now.

    Every week or so the update takes over my computer for an hour or so of downloading and diskthrashing, only to end with an error message:

    "Some apps need to be uninstalled
    These programs need to be uninstalled because they aren't
    compatible with the upgrade.

    HP AMD Carrizo A10-8700 CPU

    Uninstall and Continue"

    Right, uninstall your CPU and then continue...

    HP, AMD, and Microsoft are all now in finger pointing mode, with no resolution in sight.

    I still bring out DOW I every once and a while. It was a nice RTS where most of the single player campaign let you proceed at your own pace, turtle down or blitz.

    I could not finish DOW II. The levels were smaller, more cramped, and more like MOBA lanes with a Boss at the end you had to dance around for five minutes to kill.

    DOW III sounds like it is moving further away from the old school RTS and towards frantic twitchfest fast action. I'll pass.
