Not 100% on the lore, was there a reason JC Denton wasn't brought back for HR? I tried #2 (invisible war) but basically skipped it as it wan't my cup of tea so I don't know if it was explained in it.

Human Revolution was a prequel to the original Deus Ex, where you play as JC. So he didn't exist yet.

Edit: I'm too slow with my replies.

Why would anyone spend 20 dollars to buy a token, when you can spend 15 dollars for 30 days of game time?

Because you want gold, not game time. Game time is the incentive to sell the gold.

Well, guess I know where all my gold is going... At 30k, if you put in some effort, you can make it all back long before account expiry too : )

30k is easy to get with barely any effort. I expect the price to increase to around 50k. You can easily get 2 - 3k per day from the garrison missions if you have 4 or so level 100 alts doing it.

Not sure what you'd spend all the gold on though. I guess you'd buy all BoE gear so you can replace it in a month. Or crazy expensive mounts.

Stuttered here, quite a bit around the middle. Running on a GTX 980 with an i7 and 60 meg connection. No 4k monitor though. I'm wondering what systems are running this smoothly.

Oh thank god. Such a minor thing, but it's going to make me go crazy. I was hoping it'd be in the first patch.

I want a series focused on the Borg (like the ones that split off). Wouldn't really be federation, though.. although I guess it could be if they split from the collective.

I'm such a nerd.

No mention of the caged mouse bug; I hope it's on the list. Every damn time I have a conversation, the mouse is no longer contained in the game. Have to alt-tab out and back in. It's really annoying (although I'm trying to use middle-mouse instead for movement).

Enjoying it otherwise.

I think you're right on the money. This headset will work well for only a few genres: flight sims, racing games, maybe a few first person games specifically designed to work with it.

Horror games and adventure games work very well in it. Anything where you move slowly. I'd love seeing the RPG / Roguelike genre go to town with this. HL2 looks really good as well, but you can tell it wasn't built for it. I think a proper VR HL2/3 would be great. Isometric RTS games would be pretty awesome also. No more zooming in out, just lean forward to view the map closer. So many possibilities beyond "sitting in cockpit" games.

I'm okay with that, so long as VR is developed. Palmer has said the same thing. If Oculus fails and another company succeeds, that's fine. So long as it takes off this time.

Valve seems to be going all in though. That's awesome.

Brink taught me to not buy games that have no real singleplayer campaign. I don't mind an MP match here and there, but multiplayer only games aren't for me. I'm too old. I did get some enjoyment out of it. Just not enough for the full price.

"If You Like RPGs, You Must Play Pillars of Eternity."

Already started it, but I need to see if it saves games to Steam Cloud before I continue here at work. If it does, I won't get anything done today. If not, I'll wait until I get home later. Don't want two campaigns going. Going to check at lunch to see if it does.

I buy the book thing (the Compendium) for the free goodies. I also watch the finals. Don't know the teams well enough to care who wins, but they're very good and fun to watch. Looking forward to it.

Maybe they are working on a Half-Life MMO, where you can play as either the resistance (Gordon Freeman, Alyx Vance, etc) or as a Combine soldier.

Your first Combine quest: pick up 20 cans.

Nice looking ship. I checked out the others.. holy crap they're expensive. I've got 2 ships, and I feel like a damn peasant. Someone give me $400 so I can feel better about myself.

Since they can't decide who owns it, sounds like we're all clear to pirate the hell out of it. I bet re-releasing it would get someone to find the paperwork.

Then there's a few boneheaded things they've done since after launch, like the whole personal story reorganization that made no sense and essentially broke it.

They addressed this one recently and said they're going back to fix it. Whether that's before the expansion or not, I'm not sure.

If the only way you can think of to add tension or vulnerability to a game is have me pick a lock 100 times,then you suck as a game designer...how many locks have I picked over the last 30 years?

How many zombie apocalypses have you gone through?! I kind of agree, though. Why can't I just take an axe to most of those boxes/doors? If the world is coming to an end, I sure as hell won't give up because of a padlock.

There are plenty of better things out there than that in my opinion. Assetto Corsa, Vox Machinae, Elite: Dangerous, TxK, and even little demos like Lava, Inc. and Ocean Rift.

And Alien Isolation. Don't forget that one. I loves me some dust floating in front of my face.

As for Hand of Fate... It's a rogue-like, with a different UI. Instead of moving on to the next room with a random layout and random set of mobs, it's portrayed with narrative, using cards... It's an interesting style ; )

Yep. Hand of Fate is a dungeon crawler. The card game is how they randomize the dungeon, gear and monsters. Each time you start a new level, you can customize your deck. If there's a piece of gear you never use, just remove it from the deck. As you move through the dungeon, a weapon card can be drawn which will be one from your deck.

There's a ton of replayability in the game. It really reminds me of Warhammer Quest (not that shitty one they just released, but the board game) how things are so random. Plus the narration is spot on. If you're in to dungeon crawling and rogue games, have a look.
