as opposed to $40 retail for USA, and $30 on sale at GMG

It is only 5% off at GMG for me. What am I doing wrong? Well, in this case I will wait for a sale. Got dozens of games on my backlist to play, so I can wait for a more reasonable price.

Guys, whoever paid to watch this travesty must get his brain checked. A 49-0 multiple world champion vs. a 0-0 boxing newbie (MMA champion with no boxing experience) - what... the... hell...?! No real boxing fan has watched this, this was really a bout for casual fans and people who thought this would be a fair competition.

Hope it's better than DOS. I dunno why buy DOS was pretty meh for me. Tried to get through it several times and just got bored and quit at some point along the way.

I absolutely loved DOS. The best kickstarter game I have ever invested in. I hope DOS2 will be just as good if not better.

I don't get it. Many fans of X (up to X3) ask for the same. More of the same? Really?

I am still waiting for a new Privateer. Not a economy sim, no MMO, just a real single-player space adventure sim. (Cue all the Squadron 42 posts coming up!) Is there really no market anymore for a game like Privateer? With a good story and lots of space exploration, buying new ships (no, not setting up trade routes and building space stations, thank you, no fiddling around with this tedious stuff), weapons, shields... Where is our savior making this happen? (Cue CR and CIG - I want a game, not a game of promises by a snake oil salesman). Disney, EA, how about a "Han Solo" game where you start as a small time pirate and become Han Solo and get the Millennium Falcon close to the end? Before meeting Luke and Leia?

"In the latest twist to the Star Citizen saga, Cloud Imperium decides to give all of it's backers facials at Gamescom2017. The crowd was overly enthusiastic about their facials, with one proclaiming 'In an ideal universe Chris Roberts would be bending me over all day!' The event ended in uproarious applause as Miley Cyrus made a guest appearance to 'wipe down the loads' as the guests exited the arena."

As Miley said: "You gotta come before you leave."

Facials! Immershun! Buy ships, guys, BUY SHIPSSSSSSSS$$$$$$!

This is a financial black hole. It is endless and will suck every single cent in that is coming close to it producing nothing of note.

for fuck's sake, someone just give me the freelancer successor i've wanted for 15 years.

Star Citizen?

But that's gonna be another 15 years before they finish it

Never. The promised games (SQ42 and the MMO) will NEVER get finished and released as promoted/promised.

I'm rooting for Chris Roberts and the Star Citizen team to pull it off frankly and I didn't even back the game.
Thumbsup They'll get there. I can easily give them a pass for what they're trying to achieve.

Can't comprehend the mindset of the naysayers.

Good luck. Let's see if they can pull off anything close to what they promised within the next few years. To me, this is Duke Citzien Forever.

They added real time facials animation system, so there is no delay, the game is just not feature complete yet. Don't rush it, it is all good if my grandgrandgrandgrandchildren can play the beta.

Hilarious!

CR: Well, the latest delay is based on RT facials... Sorry, I mean RT facial animation systems. This is the thing you wanted although up to now you did not know that you really need it. We will implement it and ask you to buy new ships in support of us breaking new tech grounds! Also, we expect to go beta just a bit later - with all the great stuff we are working on and that we will add in the future, we expect to go beta late in the next millennium or early in the millennium after that. Now go and buy ships, suckers! And don't duck our facials... uhm, facial animations!

I, too, like XCOM2 quite a lot. I also had not problem with the turn limits in the missions. Of course, I played the game on regular difficulty and guess that the turn limit will be a bigger pain the lower back region at higher difficulties - but isn't the game meant to be harder at higher difficulty settings?

There is no technical reason for these games being a W10 exclusive.

Except for promoting your new OS that you even offered to people FOR FREE? Again another totally new concept right there, right?

Kajetan wrote on Aug 22, 2017, 13:15:
It is sad, that there are people, who are offended by other people critizising their favourite "thing". Have you such low self esteem?

Where was I offended? I am AMUSED. I imagine some people shaking their fist and stomping their feet with a tinfoil hat and just can't stop laughing. Then again - to each their own.

By the way... Why is AoE not working on WinXP? "There is no technical reason for these games" not working on WinXP where they once worked...

Well, no AoE 2/3 DE for you. I think MS will survive this lost sale.

I am all for ARPGs instead of multiplayer only BS, so bring them on! I will look and see which are worth a buy. It is really nice to have a wide choice.
