News Comments > Steam Winter Sale Next Week?

But.. I dunno what to buy anymore. This new steam sale method with no flash sales is boring and disengaging.

This will be the first year in a while that I just don't care about Steam's sale. The fall one was such a let-down. Sure I'll jump on and look at my wishlist prices, but after that it's ho-hum.

I really like these. And I like that they're okay with scrapping a game system that sucks (or in D3's case, the majority of the system).

Bioshock 1 & 2 were quite awesome. That last game, not so much. The story was just far too ludicrous for my tastes.

But Elizabeth was wonderful! One of the rare NPCs that isn't terrible. I'm looking at you, Dogmeat.

I just went to try it and it looks like I need to reinstall from scratch. I'm wondering how the flight controls are these days. When it first came out, I absolutely hated them. I've heard they've tweaked them a bit and made another mode even, but haven't tried yet. I really like the feel of Elite Dangerous and wonder how it compares.

So far it looks like those in the stress/beta test have enjoyed it, and those who are not recently had a pet murdered by Blizzard. Maybe a few in between.

Developer Diary was good, but I still want to see them address monetization in the future. I assume we're getting outfits.

Not in beta, cause to me this just looks like Unreal Tournament in HD, a twitchy fast paced get creamed by 12 year olds kind of game.

Let me guess, it is designed from the ground up to be played with a game controller.

It is very fast and twitchy. I'm sure there are some characters that can be played with a controller (tanks maybe), but quite a few would be hard as well. One thing I really like is that when you do the character selection, it tells you which roles are missing. It really encourages a well-rounded team. And the roles aren't just healing/support/tank. It says things like, "You have no builders" or "you have no snipers" depending on the map.

I got in to the stress test and enjoyed it. You can tell they're just barely beta, if not alpha, though. No personal stats at all on any of the characters, so it's hard to see any progression. Not that it's needed (Q3 didn't have no stinkin' stats), but it's nice to have. Lots of other little things missing. Gameplay was really good though.

Also, Mei for life. <3

Yeah, a Desktop Manager, it's like the Task Switcher (alt-tab), only more useful, and Linux and Mac have had it for years.

Been using this since I switched to 10 and I'm not sure I can go back to an OS without it. I use it at work all the time to hide my games.

I'm tempted to rollback to 7. I get really weird hard drive usage bottlenecks on 10. I haven't been able to figure out the cause, but it's moved past annoying. The whole system locks up for about 20 seconds if the C Drive gets even slightly busy.

If they are the same, it's because Beth was lazy and reused assets.

Ummm...aren't these drones going be shot down and or destroyed/stolen in some way? They can't be cheap.

People keep suggesting this, but a FedEx truck seems easier to steal. They have no door and leave the key in. Also, the drones have cameras, so it'd probably only happen a few times if that.

I use the controller on Ori and the Blind Forest. Works fine for the most part, but I also ignore the touch pads. And then I got the Bash skill. And then I raged. Bash let's you point in a direction you want to go, but on the Steam Controller it moves at warp 10 so you can't position it very easily. Had to switch to keyboard so I could aim.

Aside from that it's been fine. Not sure anything is gained over an XBox controller, though.

Had a lot of fun in NS2 back when it launched. I think my biggest frustration with the game (aside from shitty or no commander) was the fucking long load times. I know they put out a patch to fix that, but it was too late by then. A lot of people had left. Still, I got my money out of the game and enjoyed it while it lasted.

This game didn't seem to click with me, and I'm not sure why. It's pretty enough, and very interesting looking. It's been a while, though, and I can't remember why I didn't play it more. Perhaps another game came out. I'll probably give it another go since I hear nothing but good things about it.

They should use some of the profits from the game to buy keyboards and mice for everyone. It's clear nobody in Beth's imaginary QA department has one. Now how do I exit this window? Is it tab? Escape? E? Fuck if I know. Press all the buttons. Skyrim wasn't as bad as the shit going on in FO4. It's like one of their employees got pissed and deliberately fucked up all the keybinding code.

Mods can't get here soon enough. And yeah, Dogmeat pissed me off with getting in the way, so I ditched him and went with the no companion perk. No regrets.

You don't strike me as having sufficient brainpower if you call SC2 better than SC1.

All you're doing is calling him names and not backing anything up. Why do you feel SC1 was better? Give some examples. I don't recall a whole lot of depth in the SC1 missions. It was primarily "build base and overwhelm enemy" or "take this tiny group to point X". I could add that SC2 has a few other mission types, but you'd just call them a gimmick. Not really sure what you're looking for in an RTS.

Glad to see an RTS selling over a million units. The genre needs more releases. And this expansion was really well done. I'm about half-way through, and the variety of missions is great. Plus the cut-scenes after each mission are amazing. Only wish I had more time for both this and FO4.
