Sure, why not? If they can offer games cheaper than Steam, I will definitely become a customer.

Are you stupid enough to give your credit card info to some Chinese company just to save a few buck?

Yes, this tiny Chinese backstreet laundry Tencent... What was your point again?

And I still haven't played it yet - but bought it a year ago or so when it was very cheap. I still can't believe it is really that bad unless it has multi-colored endings.

I got a BOOM! Michael Bay ...SPLOSIONS! Disorder BANG!

I am sure there are a lot of therapists offering some very expensive and ineffective therapy for this kind of disorder.

I can understand having some FPS shooter parts to break up the space ship shooter parts but it seems silly putting this much FPS work into a game that's suppose to be a space ship shooter.

picking up mundane objects and twirling them around in your virtual hand is beyond silly.

Showing stuff like this is buying them some more time - I think it is all about smokes & mirrors with this "development" now. Show small stuff and ask for more confidence, patience, and money from your whales, uhm, supporters.

I don't get it.. $400 for a virtual ship?! It's a digital asset composed of the same code components that make all the other ships. To each their own.. but anything over $20 seems ridiculous for, again..., a game asset.

This vexes me. I am terribly vexed.

It's religion - it cannot be explained, just believed.

Unfortunately, I am not a believer!

Also, I had to confirm the e-mail I have been using for Steam for the first time again in the last 14 years or so. I don't know why they wanted another confirmation after this loooong time.

Germany fails to advance out of the group stage in the World Cup. Wow. Finishing last in the group no less.

Wow! That's bad. To think in 2014, they destroyed the competition and went on to win the cup.

That's what happens when you got a trainer who dumps the ENTIRE team that won the Confed Cup (a year prior!) for overpaid and overrated club players who then go on to lose all the test games before the entire event. We lost deservedly, South Korea was amazing. No goal in 90 minutes is just crazy bad, back in 2014 we dominated, today others will. Fair is fair and personally I am now rooting for Argentina

Funny, because Argentina played almost as bad as the German team. I am rooting for Croatia and Belgium - both played the most entertaining soccer in this tournament up to now. also, Spain vs. Portugal was a very good match (as expected).

Forced PvP? Really? No sale. Not even for free.

No one knows yet if PVP is forced. I would be surprised myself. A ton of people don't want that and essentially every other game of this type lets you play on private servers with friends only.

I hope so. Forced PvP is a No-Sale-argument for me. If the co-op is more like in Guild Wars 1/2, I will be all over this.

Hopefully the steam link doesnt suck
I don't use mine often, but when I do it seems to work perfectly. I do use wired ethernet, though.

I heard Steam Link is pretty horrible when used via WLAN.

I used Rocky 3, because he kind of changes by learning footwork. The problem with most 80s movies (and Disney movies) is that the hero doesn't change their tactics, they just recommit and change their resolve.

Very good example. Rocky totally changed his style for the rematch with Clubber Lang. Better footwork, much lighter, better condition, less powerful shots but lots of them - pretty much like young Ali.

Hm... I am currently just interested in complete editions of FarCry 5 and the latest Assassin's Creed - both are still too expensive, so I am going to pass on this sale.

Yeah, clearly $350 million box office for Solo, released in the summer schedule, was just TERRIBLE. Rolleyes

The movie cost $250m to make, with an additional $100m in advertising, so that's break even. Not what you want from a summer blockbuster.

jdreyer, you are waaaaay off! $350m in the theatres, dude. You do know that the theatres get a share and don't work for free?

And $100m for worldwide ads? Not even close...

And I HIGHLY doubt that including reshoots the production cost was just $250m. We will get the real numbers as soon as Disney has to inform its shareholders about the quarterly details. Then we will see...

Solo lost money. A Star Wars movie should not only NOT lose money but should make TONS of it. Star Wars is failing, and Disney has hit the brakes and will now investigate what is going wrong and what they can do about it. I got a feeling Kate Kennedy's head might be rolling very soon... Of course it will all be a planned retirement and not a reaction to Star Wars going under.

This also means that ALL projects she started with the exception of episode IX got stopped and will be under investigation, too.

Making movies about minor and pretty flat characters like Boba Fett has always been a stupid idea. And who actually wanted to watch a movie about The Adventures of Young Han Solo? Who asked for that? Right - not many people. And this is why you fail, LucasfilmDisney... And destroying the ideas and magic behind the original trilogy with a very horrible episode VIII was also a sign that the people running Star Wars now just don't get why the first three movies worked.
