I'd say I played last night, but really I just died over and over. I figure I'll just be a spawn point for my squad. This is my life now in BF5.

Save yourself some time. Get an asset flip from Steam. It's going to be more enjoyable. Really wish I hadn't backed this one.

Loved the game, although the tilesets started to become repetitive after a while. Looking forward to seeing what it looks like. I don't imagine it's aged well. I nearly jumped back on after the publisher changed, but it seemed a bit sketchy so I avoided it. Having it on Steam would feel better.

After watching the video, it seems to work best by hiding the actor either off-screen or in a dark area, and then having them barely speak. That appears to limit it to only "mostly something wrong" instead of "this is completely wrong".

Got over 200 hours in this game making it my top game in Steam. The mods are amazing, and I look forward to whatever Tynan does next.

1. Fallout 76 Oct 16, 2018, 21:27 Frijoles
 
Fallout 76 Platinum Edition costs $115, doesn't include Fallout 76.

This is perfect. I keep buying games I don't play. It's clearly marketed towards me.

Enjoying Odyssey, but the size of the map is daunting. At 10 hours in, I feel like I've hardly put a dent in it. Hell, it took me 4 hours to get to the title screen (once you leave the first island).

I sunk a lot of hours in to XCOM 2, then left. I keep returning and have no idea WTF is going on anymore, so I don't stick around. It seems like everything is an emergency and needs to be addressed, so I just alt-f4. I enjoy the missions themselves. It's all the other shit going on that I get lost in.

No twisting required to make TWoT include many strong female characters, it's built right in. Title is just SJW click bait.

Was thinking the same thing. The first several books have women solidly in charge. It isn't until towards the end that men are on equal footing, and that's only some of them. However, I fear they'll go the Sword of Shannara direction and turn it in to shit so it's more appealing to people who haven't read the books.

I've been wanting to buy the books for a while, but fuck that now. He sounds like an alcoholic douchenozzle, if other commenters (on other sites) are to be believed.

Uh.. until? I believe they could strike out that whole first part:

Until data is misused, Facebook’s breach will be forgotten.

If we didn't do shit to Experian, why would this one matter? Facebook just has to keep quiet and it'll pass.

Played at release for a while and really enjoyed it. Came back a few months later and it looked like a tablet had taken a shit all over the screen. Click this, click that, get a daily whatever! What a mess. Think I stuck around for about 10 minutes and haven't been back. I'm going to miss my bunny.

From Steam's preferences, you can already filter out tags like anime or visual novel,

It's annoying that we can't filter out custom tags. Battle Royale isn't an "official" tag yet, so I can't block them on my preferences. I can add them myself, but that doesn't do much good.

Game's already dying, huh?

They've done many of these. And every time someone makes the same attempt at a joke.

Actually the only hitch it had was within the first 10 mins of release and it was more or less queues and a busted interaction with Magni.

I think I was disconnected about a dozen times with world server down messages a few times. Definitely not smooth for me. Didn't get better until pretty late last night. Chat would continue to work so I could bitch to my guild mates at least.

Not too impressed with the game. I'd refund it if I were not past the two hours. I planned for a grind going in, but I didn't think it'd be at the same level as an MMO grind (or worse).

Are these games buying and downloading automatically for you?

Of course not. Are they rating themselves and proving they have no malware included? Nope, not doing that either. GOG is. And that's where I buy my games now. Why do you and others object so much to a curated (by Valve) section of Steam? In what way does it harm you from browsing all the other shovelware and asset flips? They'd still be there, ready to mine Monero.

I'd like to see Valve release a Steam Premier which is basically a curated form of their store. Leave Steam up with all the shit that goes with it for people who like to live dangerously. Steam Premier could be like old Steam. Same app, just a different section of it.
