Love the Tomb Raider games, cant wait for this one. Should be great!

Yep, should be fun. Crossing fingers. Day 1 for me. Although it's the latest "Thief" team doing this one and not the folks from the last two, is that right?

Awesome news, I've been hoping for word of this having really enjoyed the last two. Having just installed a new card to replace my aging R9 290X, I am ret-2-go for this in 4K (hopefully).

Same here, I don't particularly care if I don't get some super item thing in an ARPG. I just play them for a challenge and the fun of it. With D1, D2, and D3 I played them literally once to complete the single player and that was it. But understandably people play these aRPGs for differing reasons. I don't have Grim Dawn, but if the SP is pretty challenging/meaty I might consider trying this game - full price $24.99 sounds reasonable if there is lot's of content.

That's me in a nutshell too, I don't play Ultimate builds that require MI gear or whatever; I prefer to play veteran mode and just play with skills.

Everybody is different so I certainly respect folks liking this or that when it comes to ARPG but, for me personally, Grim Dawn is tits.

Yep. Who needs that but the military, SWAT, and murderers ? What's wrong with a bolt action, low caliber sports rifle, meant for shooting targets in a sports club ? Oh btw here if you do own such a rifle: quite often the ammo stays at the sports club...

"This shooting sport is ok, nothing wrong with it. That shooting sport is not, it's for murderers!"

Spoken like a true fudd.

I can't wait for 3 gun season to start backup.
I am going to get my appleseed patch this year that I have been procrastinating on for 6 years since my last event. After that I am going to try 3 gun. It looks intense.

This incident, more than any previous from what I can tell, certainly is sorting those who get the 2A from those who don't. I am fresh out of fucks to give for those that don't.

I haven't finished it yet, I have been playing on Steam Link here and there when I get time and have been thoroughly enjoying it. It is a puzzle game for the most part and the atmosphere is really well done, and the story is engaging. Steam currently shows me with 11 hours and I'm sure it's not very long but it is easily worth the cost at it's current sale price. They certainly aren't just throwing the "lovecraftian" bit around, they understand it.

Opinions vary, of course, but I find it engaging and immersive.

Agreed, it will be interesting to watch the virtual currency market and how it develops/matures over the next few decades. This is a beta test of the future of money. Fascinating.

The suit claims that Trump's Twitter feed is a public forum and an official voice of the president. Excluding people from reading or replying to his tweets—especially because they tweeted critical comments—amounts to a First Amendment breach, according to the lawsuit.
Private property, the constitution does not apply. Because they are publicly traded does not make them a public institution or service.

This is true for people that aren't the POTUS. But the rules are different for him. No one is claiming Twitter is a public institution or service, they're claiming the account of the President is.

If there is an official statement saying his account is official then, yup, I get it and agree.

I hadn't considered that the administration regarded his twitter activity as "official" and that, certainly, makes a difference.

However, if this is what they are going on then it's still pretty shaky ground IMO

"The President is the President of the United States, so they're considered official statements by the President of the United States," Spicer said, when asked during his daily briefing how they should be characterized. Spicer did not indicate whether that included both of the President's Twitter handles: @realDonaldTrump and @POTUS.

I was going to try to get into Duels until I read about them walking away from it after AKH and I'm not playing Magic Online, just no.

I wish them luck on their MMO but I am not even remotely interested in that. Good lord, I just wish you would get your shit together and offer a decent digital product.

Great news, I'm very happy for Crate.

Steam shows me at 206 hours so I guess it's kind of an okay game. ;-)

Seriously, way to go Crate, great job. When I need my ARPG fix, this is where I get it.

Update (source http://steamcommunity.com/games/440900/announcements/detail/579113052933850650):

A new update on official servers
FEBRUARY 9 - COMMUNITY MANAGER (JENS ERIK)
Dear Exiles,

A week ago we made the tough decision to end the partnership with our previous official server partner (see statement from 03.02.2017 for more information). Since then we’ve been working hard on getting new official servers online. You have been incredibly patient with us in this matter and we wanted to reach out and express our thanks for your patience.

We also have some good news for you. Today, when the next patch is released, we’ll start the process of bringing official servers back online.

First 81 servers will be going up in the US, with 31 European servers going up tomorrow. Servers will start with a player cap of 40, but this will increase as we monitor performance on the new hardware and are able to ensure an acceptable level of stability and server performance. The plan was for players to keep their progress, but we encountered some instances of corrupt data. Be prepared that there is a change your progress has been lost.

We are still waiting on hardware for servers on the west coast of the US, South America, Eastern Europe and Oceania. We will be receiving more hardware over the next few weeks and these servers will go up when the hardware is available. We know a lot of players in these territories are waiting for the official servers come up and we’re working hard to make that happen. We truly appreciate your patience.

We also wanted to make a comment about server settings: The settings on the official servers are not “the way we intended the game to be played”. We intended for server admins to create a wide variety of servers with different settings to players could choose a server that best fit their playstyle. We high encourage you to explore the thousands of player-run servers that are out there to find a server that suits you best.

Once again we thank you for your patience.

Your cross awaits, exiles.

Best regards,
The Conan Exiles team

They had a couple available briefly today for testing. Still no ETA. Apparently some "database issues". https://twitter.com/ConanExiles/status/828984962393190400

I believe they went with gameservers.com for this next attempt.

I will probably give the online play a try when they get the official servers spun up. But I imagine it's going to be a while before they get everything running nice and smooth.

I really didn't enter this EA with any real expectations, I guess I'm just used to EA titles being a complete mess when they start and I'm okay with that; if I'm not or have little faith in the capabilities of the devs then I don't buy. Not an opinion shared by a lot of the folks on the Steam forums. I look at EA as a buyer beware situation but it's apparent a lot of people were expecting quite a bit more.

There is a very recent Q&A session posted up on the Steam forum right now that may be of interest to someone: http://steamcommunity.com/app/440900/discussions/0/133256240739163040/

Quite a lot fun with friends. hosted with 2 friends co-op for 6 hours and loved the exploration of the new world. Got our moneys worth. Heaps to do, plenty of immersion, seems to be a involving story so potentially awesome if you like these type of games. Had more fun in this than a lot of those $60+ games that came out recently and I've just started. Single player would likely get boring after a short while, and the public servers likely a hit and miss affair. But highly recommend coop with a few friends.

Reading most of the negative comments on steam, people have real issues with EA games (but bought this one), expected bug free, lag free experience on day one, couldnt run the game on their pc, or seem to hate survival games in general (yet bought this one)?? Steam is filled with lots of cranky people giving real hatred filled reviews on games that they have played for less than a hour. Imagine reviewing the first halflife before the train ride is over, or oblivion before you get out of the sewers into the world. Too many people who hate games in general but review for the world to see. /rant

Yep, same gameplay experience here, I've been having a lot of fun solo on local. I knew better than to try and hop right on the servers. Right now I'm having a blast learning the mechanics, building stuff and exploring. I intend on hopping on the Blitz PVP when they get their stuff more stable and raise the player cap back up to 70.

I agree, also, about the Steam reviews. Honestly the game is in much better shape than I expected at this point so I am hopeful for the launch product.
