Few hours into Callisto Protocol. Definitely not a bad game and all performance issues seem to be fixed. Gorgeous to look at, stellar performance. It isn't scared at all, though, because the game designers have made the dumbest mistake ever. What did these absolute morons decide to do? To make it melee oriented. So they made a spiritual successor to Dead Space, but the one big difference is that Dead Space was scary because the LAST THING YOU WANTED were these scary fucking monstrosities to reach melee range as they'd completely destroy Jacob in a slash and a bite or two. In Callisto Protocol, because it's melee oriented, you're walking around with a "COME AT ME BRUV!" attitude. In the meantime, millions have been put into trying to make this game scary including loads of "jump-scares". How -- one must ask, though -- can a jump-scare be scary when those mostly involve close-range encounters?

"BOO!"
*BAM* *BASH* *BOOM*
"Ha! Boo yourself, you idiot!"

Nothing about this game is in any way a spiritual succession of Dead Space sadly. Combat, Level design, Characters, Setting... they failed on every account which is surprising to be honest, I expected way more

Lets play + boobies + jump scares = $$$WIN$$$

Are you talking Dwarf Fortress or Fifa 23?

In my most recent DF fort, a troupe of nude elf dancers showed up in my tavern to entertain my dwarves. Boobs everywhere! But right after they showed up, dwarves started dying in their beds with their blood drained. I had a vampire. I suspected the elves were vampires and slaughtered them all. Turns out that they weren't vampires and the culprit was another dwarf. Oops, sorry elves.

It's so hard to tell if this is real or made up (I know it's real, but without the additional posts...)

That's hysterical

Really glad Dwarf Fortress is doing well. Hopefully they keep adding polish, performance improvements, and achievements.

It's selling so well that the brothers are probably getting a huge influx of cash.

They might be able to actually hire people to do smooth animations for the game and keep the complex heart of it

Geek hint: You can find vampires by going into character profiles and checking the group affiliations, vampires are enemies of everyone (very easy to spot!) - when you find one, you just discovered what the KILL ORDER command on military squads is for

Or if you are super fancy, make your doors out of silver (yes, really) <3

The true fun starts when one of your awesome dworfs turns out to be a werewolf...

Nice, I didn't know vampires were averse to silver! I eventually identified the culprit by finding the one dwarf who wasn't eating meals. Didn't see anything too suspicious in group affiliations, but I do remember checking. Maybe I had a young vampire, or I wasn't looking close enough. Anyway... fun times!

140 hours in Darktide already. That game is so good and knowing Fatshark, all they'll continue to do is improve upon it.

Callisto Protocol already off the list. A friend gave his AMD reward to me, which is that game, so I'll probably try it today. My gut tells me that apart from the performance issues, the bad reception is mostly because people expected Dead Space 4. I never did, so I wonder if the combat etc will disappoint me as well and for the same reasons. What strikes me as odd is that the game translates really well to Let's Plays and it's hard to imagine the game sucking.

For the one or two people that don’t have The Witcher 3 GOTY edition, pick it up now before the sale ends Monday and the next gen patch is released this week.

Couple of gaming buddies bought Darktide and have given up after a week of constant crashing and unplayable.
A beta, online game only, sold as a functioning release and a cash shop, without stable functioning network.
The reviews are falling fast and hard to believe the devs were so corrupt.
This story has been told 1000 times. I learned decades ago never to buy a game at release. BF 2042 is stable and fun a year after release and comes with a 4 player coop mode. Check it out.

The main reason I purchased it was to support Bay12.
It was a touch pricier than I was expecting, but still well worth it, in my mind at least, because over the years I've spent many hundreds of hours playing the game, and I'll do so again in the future.

Now, where my RTX 3070 turned itself into a 2D graphics card only, I am very thankful for the Steam Deck. Currently I am playing The Walking Dead Definitive Edition on it and this is the kind of game where even I can work with the stick controls of the deck.
I will be buying an AMD graphics card soon, though. Either an RX 7900 XT or, if it should suck and/or be too expensive, an RX 6900 or 6800 XT which are pretty cheap now - especially compared to Nvidia's overpriced hardware.

Pretty much. It's not for everyone, but it really is a work of art and has served as inspiration for games like Minecraft and Rimworld. A graphical version with an actual mouse-driven GUI was always a pipe dream for many players, including myself. But it has now become reality. It's not perfect, but it works. The ASCII version has it's own charm, I suppose, but I think the majority of players will stick with this version going forward.
