News Comments > Arkane: Steam Refunds = PC Prey Demo

For some here on Blue's News the demo they like is the complete game for free. I mean there could be a bug in the final battle so they must be allowed to play through just to check it out, right?

Pardon my French, but vaut le fuq would we do with a remaster? FarCry 3 still looks awesome with all bells and whistles turned on. Maybe it is FarCry 3: Unfinished Business? We get back to the island and this time will actually be the bad guy for a change?

This is the way to go: while doing what you loved most in your life. The only horrible thing was the poor kid playing the guitar with Hampton lying at his feet. In the beginning everybody thought he would listen to the kid playing with his ear close to the stage speaker, but the poor man was passing that very moment. Must have been a terrible shock for the kid.

Chet Faliszek also said with the cameras turned off: "I gave them all the hats I had to give. There are no more hats left in me. When I had to choose between working on an actual new game and retirement with a few millions in my pocket, I knew that my time in the virtual hat making industry had to come to an end."

Valve - providing virutal hats for more than a decade now and still being proud of it!

Looking forward to this!

I always played these with a friend -- one of us would pilot and the other, who would be designated "R2", would manage the shields and throttle. Fun times.

Funny, but so did we a few decades ago! X-Wing was manageable alone, though, but TIE Fighter really needed me to pilot and shoot shit down and my buddy to find the right targets, take care of the energy management, and reading the new goals during the mission.

Dear XWVM, would you marry me?

No, really, this is impressive. I will definitely go back to X-Wing with this mod. Great work, guys! And now... TIE Fighter, please, after you have finished this mod. PLEASE!

From the mod website:
Perhaps, by the time we are done and happy with X-Wing, we will have a flight engine that will be so similar to that of TIE Fighter that a it will be just a natural step to support that game's content files. But this is still in the future.

YES!!!

Stay awhile and listen....

Say what you want I would like to see a complete remake of Diablo 1 and also Diablo 2 in the Diablo 3 engine. I still remember "Stay a while and listen" and this wonderful music in the background... Great gaming memory.

So the latest TES game will be announced.

And I haven't even finished Skyrim yet... I am playing Crysis 3 right now (nice ego shooter with pretty good graphics) and will play either Skyrim or Fallout 4 after it. Both will take up my gaming time for a few months I guess. If they announce another TES, I will play Skyrim first.

It's a good idea to have your system tested by the best. Better Brits find the holes than the Chinese.

And that independent colony will finally come back and become part of the great UK again. After the Brexit they need this neat little colony called USA.

If the original writers didn't intend a KKK reference then a translator has no business putting it in. It is that simple.

Whitey Whiteman, the hired translator, still insists the KKK reference is NO typo!

Thanks for all the congrats on our martial endurance!

Heh heh, I think you probably meant 'marital', Blue.

Although all is fair in love and war, of course.

Same meaning, different words.

Unreal was all about the loading screen flyby.

True to some extent. Unreal had awesome graphics, but Half-Life had a good story and better gameplay.

RIP Jon Demme!
Only one of the most memorable scenes in modern cinema. I guess I did not include enough exclamations to pass muster.

Everybody knows this scene. This does not make your posting better. Whatever. Some people just are weird, I guess, especially in the anonymity of the internet.

Then again, you are already on my block list but I have forgotten to log in so I had to read your drivel. Time to log in and enjoy the board without you.

Working title: Alien Frustration

Loved that game until the Alien got paranormal instincts and detected me wherever I hid. Then I quit and uninstalled. Don't tell me I am weak because I already know I can get frustrated with games after a long day at work if it gets too difficult. To each their own.

The graphics are pretty low quality, then again it is a "90's styled" space combat simulator by a small indie team. I will keep an eye on this. If the reviews are okay, I will bite!

Cue all Star Citizens saying "B... b... but... IMMERSION! SHINY GRAPHICS! LANDING ON PLANETS! EGO SHOOTER! MMO! PERSISTENT UNIVERSE! SCOPE OF PROJECT!" Star Citizen should have been either a Wing Commander or Privateer game updated with modern graphics. It would have been released by now and the studio could work on adding elements or building a MMO Privateer. This small indie group understood this and pulled it off! Is it a good game? We will see. But at least a finished game got released.

March for Science, a guaranteed republicon free event.

If there's anything about genetics or evolution, Democrats will be absent as well.
Those fact things like percentages are not in your favor. But keep trying, it's cute.
Significantly fewer Republicans believe in evolution than did so four years ago, setting them apart from Democrats and independents.


Well, Republicans make even me doubt evolution. I mean - evolution is about moving FORWARD as a species, right?

I still bring out DOW I every once and a while. It was a nice RTS where most of the single player campaign let you proceed at your own pace, turtle down or blitz.

I stopped playing in the level where exactly this was not the case: play at your own pace. It was the level where you had to synchronously lead two different troops down two different paths. Too much stress for me in real time, I would have prefered such a mission in a turn based strategy game. Up to this mission, it was a very good RTS game, though.
