If they were to bring 1 old RTS back from Ensemble Studios, I want it to be Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds.
I want this so bad.
I'm a huge SW nerd so it always bothered the living hell out of me that they misnamed some of the units. Also iirc they shared art for a unit across sides that was Republic/Empire specific. (I think the hover tanks)

Looks like the cards are finally working for HR: Director's Cut.
What?
But... "This game will unlock in approximately 1 day and 14 hours"
And it's 9 cards?
Squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiix!

Edit: Wow, these descriptions are very... lazy.

Different unlock times for digital games are ridiculous, especially just for a new version of a 2 year old game.

It's even sillier when there is no competition with retail because it's not getting a brick and mortar rerelease on the PC.
Oh. And the console versions are already out.
What. The. Fuck. Squenix.

Controller and make sure you set advanced controls before playing. Something like Y - Spear, B - Roll.
And set zoom out to toggle instead of hold.
Any other suggestions for controls?

Square Enix literally can't make rational decisions anymore.

Though I will say, their pricing model for the Director's Cut on PC is spot on.

Careful, Squeenix might decide to remove the game from the sub.

Sigh.

In other news, Eleusis keys are being added to the Groupees be mine 8 bundle... but mine hasn't appeared yet, so I guess it's staggered again.

... and the Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 daily is finally active, 36 minutes after being announced on the news page.

Gentlemen, we can rebuild it. We have the capability to make the world's first enhanced store. Steam will be that store. Better than it was before.

Path of Exile having Steam Trading Cards is an exciting prospect. It either means that their cosmetic ("non-pay-to-win") DLC is coming to the Steam version, or they'll be using Steam's in-game payment system for said DLC.

Either way, you'll be able to purchase the content using Steam wallet funds.

Thanks for the heads up, got my key.

The latter would be my guess as it's far easier to manage.

I feel like I'm living in a dial up era. The sooner fiber gets here the better.

The bizarre justification of not releasing digital games at the same time is just baffling especiall DX:HR - DC. "Ah yes but chart tracking is from Friday to Thursday." But Steam don't release sales figures. "Oh um well we might upset retailers." But you're not stocking it at retail. "Yes, well *runs*".

Well, if Grinding Gear does release DLC on the store, while buying a piece won't tie the game to your account per se, it will tether it to your library.
On that note, thank you Sonic CD for having some Spiral Knights DLC bonus.

Seems you can't even buy the good Sonic games without getting speckled in some feces.

(big list of strings)
I wonder what will happen when I load my existing character from the beta. Since I've already done a lot of these things, I wonder if the achievements will unlock automatically.

I'm kinda hoping the answer is no.

Mmh, I always thought that if you spend even a little money on a FTP it would then be attached to your account. Wrong ?

I believe purchasing content now ties the game permanently to your library
In-game transactions don't count. It has to be store-bought DLC.

What I mean is that your game count won't go up but the game will remain in your library even when uninstalled.

I'm surprised they didn't do what most F2P titles on Steam do - make a "Starter Pack" that has some cosmetic DLC stuff. I also hope they release some sort of store DLC as I too would like this game permanently attached to my account.

I guess they really wanted to hit home that the game is free.

So what's the minimum you have to pay to get cards? I guess it's something ridiculous as in TF2.
Last I knew it was the same for all F2P titles - $9 per card drop.

Me: Man, Limbo was alright and beautiful and all, I hope people enjoy it a bit more than I did, I remember it was pretty fun on the 360 when it released.


"Let me and chance gift you this game, bitter one."

Me:
Gonna have to pay this forward somehow... To be continued.

So happy they added controller support to Don't Starve. Feels good.

On the fence about Sir, You Are Being Hunted. Is the new update any good?
