this was a poor "choice" Humble

It's not just a game that's a mindless killathon but it actually has a lot of heart and soul within it's characters and storyline which is why this iteration of the series is so beloved, praised and has so many awards.
Jonjonz wrote on Jan 6, 2022, 06:41:They don't need a specific law banning cheating in games, they can simply point to a breach of contract. When you make an account for (almost) any online multiplayer game, you have to accept the Terms of Service (along with the EULA for installing the game in the first place). The ToS is considered a legal contract and every ToS I've seen for an online game has strictly prohibited any form of cheating.
This needs to get thrown out unless Acti-bastards can show significant financial loss due to the cheating which is highly doubtful.
Please show me a law in any country that outlaws cheating in privately organized games. Since when does government at any level have any concern about how people play games published by fat corporations, other than ones where gambling involving real money is concerned?

I'll just wait until EGS gives away the bundle for free

I’m actually fine with this. Anything to put pressure on these low life cheaters which is ruining online gaming.

First, who ever titles something like that, second, who has ever made an objective list of best games of all time, other than a handful of grumpy old men here?
Beamer wrote on Jan 2, 2022, 12:22:Titles of articles and listicles are important, the vast majority of people will look at the title of a listicle and consider that to be what the listicle is supposed to be. IGN knows this, which is why they didn't call it "Our Top 100 Video Games of All Time". They want it to appear as if it's some sort of (semi-)objective answer based on more substantial data than the collaborative opinions of their staff members, and if anyone stopped a second or two to think about it they'd understand that.
IGN knows it's their opinion:
Beamer wrote on Jan 2, 2022, 09:08:There's a difference between voicing an opinion and presenting an opinion as something closer to a statement of fact. On the other hand, IGN is not known for their high integrity.
I hate when opinions are different than mine! Mine are objectively right!

Where's my time machine... who knew how good we had it back in the 90's.
Diablo, Quake, Asheron's call, Warcraft 2, Baldurs Gate.... then pop into my mates house for some Mario Bros.
Oh yeah, and no covid.
Bumpy wrote on Dec 31, 2021, 08:18:You can frequently just boot up the game from the executable without the launcher running. The launcher is only required if the dev/publisher decided to require it for some reason.
I'm appreciating the free games.
What I DON'T appreciate is many of their single player games can't truly be played Offline.
EGS does not have a true Offline mode; Steam and, of course, GoG does.

Hmm, can't get the launcher to launch...
Also those Twitter comments from the entitled incels banging away on their keyboards complaining that they can't get their free games immediately when they want are priceless.
As for launching a game. Many of them can be opened directly from the executable.

Snag it while it's hot.
The Flying Penguin wrote on Dec 25, 2021, 12:13:From what I can tell of the giveaway, Mooncrash seems to be included. It's mentioned in the description but there's no DLC for it.
BTW it's on sale for $7.50 (75% off) on Steam until Jan 5th, if you prefer that platform, or you miss this deal.
I would not recommend wasting your money on the Prey Mooncrash DLC, though. It's pretty much a joke. They should just give that away for free.

How about they celebrate by releasing the fucking games?
loomy wrote on Dec 16, 2021, 20:20:Cryptocurrency has become so embedded in how criminals do transactions online that making it illegal to own or mine cryptocurrency in every single nation on Earth would likely have little impact on the value of the various large currencies. Companies getting hit by ransomware would still be asked to pay out in bitcoin, etherium or whatever other cryptocurrency the criminals are interested in.
The inevitable crypto crash when people realize that crypto is useless and worthless could cause the next recession lol
Tomas wrote on Dec 14, 2021, 21:39:I expect it to mostly be a combination of cryptobros, people hoping for a quick buck by flipping what they bought and some plots being bought by the studio itself (to make it seem attractive to buy into this scam).
Honestly though, what is wrong with people?
Razumen wrote on Dec 13, 2021, 00:50:Things like donation drives and GoFundMe are squarely inside the socialism box. From what little I've seen of US social media, GoFundMe is used a lot by the lower/middle class to cover unexpected expenses (frequently medical in nature).Beamer wrote on Dec 12, 2021, 08:21:
without understanding that our economy is heavily loaded with it.
But according to this thread there is only predatory capitalism in America, now it's suddenly loaded with socialism as well? How...convenient.
