Damn, soon enough we'll have 10 editions of one game to preorder and it'll take over the whole list...

Half-Life 2: Episodes 3 - 12!!!

With four Avatar sequels and six Alien sequels coming up, I dare Valve to go and do it, too! It's sequel time, Valve!

Ash - Driven by AMDs Bullsh... ehm... Bulldozer cpu. When under stress, he breaks down and starts killing people.

It's probably been 10+ years since I've watched Alien, but I swear Ash doesn't malfunction, he begins killing because he is ordered to by the company. The Aliens universe has gone back and forth a few times with androids basically following Asimov's laws and just being straight up robots who will comply with any order from their controllers, especially in the comics. Nerd OCD objection is over, continue.


Of course, you are right (your name should be MoreSkillThanLuck in this case). But the joke wouldn't work this way, so... creative freedom, you know. The alternative way to say: alternative fact.

Alright, alright, it was fake news, BUT IT WORKED, and this is all that counts nowadays, goddammit!

So GMG has a pretty good 20% off deal, but say the release date is Thursday the 23rd? It's coming out on the 21st, isn't it?


Logged out it's 17% off for me, and logged in a whopping 18% off! WOW!

Maybe this is because they send me a 5% off coupon for my birthday and that is why I only get 18% logged in. In other words: the 5% off coupon is pretty much useless this way, if I am right.

Well, I can wait. Even two years or so. No biggie, got lots of other games waiting for me.

Interesting article about Ryzen. So, the patch won't make it really competitive when it comes to gaming? It is not just Microsoft's fault? No patch will make Ryzen great again?

Just kidding. Ryzen offers quite some performance for the asked price, but for those with deeper pockets, intel is still the first choice.

James Cameron: I am working on FOUR Avatar sequels!
Ridley Scott: I see your four sequels and raise you SIX Alien sequels.

In a month...
James Cameron: I see your six Alien sequels and raise you EIGHT Titanic sequels!
Ridley Scott: Wait.. WHAT?! Titanic SEQUELS?! Okay, okay, I see your eight sequels and raise you TEN Blade Runner sequels!

How old are these guys?!

So, I give up playing the Steam version of Shadowrun Dragonfall. I got stuck at the loading screen, no game save loads. I have tried several saves. The problem is not new and has not been fixed sinc 2014 (there are a couple of Steam forum threads dealing with the problem). Great job, Harebrained!!!! It seems the GOG version does not have the problem, and currently Shadowfall is 80% off at GOGs Spring Sale. Sooooo... shall I invest the few bucks and actually pay Harebrained even more money although they don't fix an old bug? Aaaaah... But I want more Shadowrun... DAMN!

Damn, that sucks, man. I'd contact harebrained and ask them for a GOG key. No reason you should have to pay again.

Thanks, Creston, already bought a GOG key for 80% off. And indeed this version is hassle-free up to now. Steam must somehow handle the save games differently which is why all my save games got broken. Thanks to the "Rewind" function I only have to replay the current map, so I am a happy gamer now. Nevertheless, it is a shame that Harebrained must know about this bug with Steam and does not bother fixing it.

I mean.. these kinda lyrics, I hate them. "I'm only human" yeah so what are you saying? There's no other standard to compare "human" with because that's all all of us are. Now, if this is a song made in the ME universe... it's racist and implying that humans are inferior to the other races. Lolz.

Dumb song. Dumb lyrics. Can't move on. Horrified.

#humanlivesmatter

Should be a tag (paid dlc) that you can spray all over alien space!

Hilarious!

Ash - Driven by AMDs Bullsh... ehm... Bulldozer cpu. When under stress, he breaks down and starts killing people.
Bishop - Driven by intel - is helpful even under huge stress.
Walter - Driven by AMDs Cryz... Ryzen. Tells you it can handle 16 tasks, but goes into slomo once this really happens.

Dear Weylan-Yutani, can I please have a Bishop for my next space mission? Thanks a lot!

EDIT: Maybe Walter is connected to a Xeon based cloud? Just in case, you know?

No, you bought the game, now play the game you bought with your money and do what all the other people do when they can't play the game they bought because of some game-breaking bug...torrent that bitch! (Hell, I've got it, I'd send it to ya if my internet connection weren't just shy of dial-up!) If you bought it, there's no reason why, in my mind, you can't torrent the GoG version. Doesn't GoG let you get STEAM games already in your library through GoG Galaxy?

=-Rigs-=

Bought the GOG version, had to rewind my save, but now everything works! The Steam version must do something different with the save games, sometimes corrupting them. Whatever, now I am happy.

Rigs, I think you mean GOG Connect. This offers you the GOG version of SOME Steam games, if the publishers allow it. Dragonfall is unfortunately not one of those games.

RIP EPA and the environment.

I heard the personal is completely compostable, so slowly killing off the EPA will not ruin the environment!

If nature was important, it would be a Wall Street listed company with a perfect lobbying structure. But noooo, that little princess nature not even financially supports any party or candidate. So why should politics care about it? Fuck that little loser!

The promo should have started "Lend us your ears, we got news for you!"

Missed opportunity. Most likely the PR guy has never watched the movie.

I have great respect for Josh Parnell but he should use what he has got to find some investors, build up a good team, and work with them to finish the game. He is an extremely smart guy but the way he develops this game comes close to torturing himself.

Take care, Josh! Best of luck to you and listen to your doctor's advice.
