So when I got my whole new PC a month ago (Haswell-E! 16 gigs of DDR4 ram!) I went from a 650ti to a 980.

It's an *awesome* upgrade. The 980 can run just about anything at 1440 at max or near-max settings.
Yeah, my intention was to buy a 970 and then a second one after I'd sold my 670s... but the true nature of the card means that would be unwise. One 980 would last me just fine until Nvidia inevitably drops the price in response to AMD's R390, I think.

Well fuck it I'm now at 4 games bought for the year already after crumbling and preordering Revelations 2. If I stick to my plan of 5 games for the year I'm already fucked as I've got Majora's Mask 3D and Arkham Knight preordered too. I'm either going to capitulate or bend my rules slightly it seems.

Lara Croft Death Simulator 2013.
Strikingly accurate and fitting at the same time.

Welp, might as well wear this icon forever. Pats 4 eva.
Or just change it every time Brady gets another ludicrous haircut.

Specific scene in REmake spoiler:
The life/death of Lisa Trevor is fucking tragic and depressing.
I almost always save after that and take a bit of a break before tackling the lab. It's been a good run so far, and I really love this game.
Did you read some of the notes and/or diaries about the Trevor family? Freaky deaky man.

So what happens when you click "down" on the d-pad?
*giggle*

Saying that seeing as coop is limited to local only until all the episodes are out there won't be any plonkers online stood in the starting location just spamming gestures.

I really hate it....:/

Gaming-wise completely agree. Just about nothing worth mentioning this month, except Darkest Dungeon Early Access but that doesn't count as a release because, well, obviously it doesn't release this month. Evolve is the big one for me but I doubt it will last more than 10 hours. Not hyped.

Although for sim racers it's going to be a good (Steam) month. Reiza is finally putting their latest games on Steam with Formula Truck 2013 coming today and Game Stock Car soon after. I had no interest in Truck racing but give it a try if you happen to own it/bought the bundle, because it's actually very different type of racing and I certainly enjoyed it. Also if you have already bought it, go here to get a Steam key: http://www.gameformulatruck.com/en/steam.php. Similar system coming soon for Game Stock Car.

I wasn't here at the startnof the last generation, were delays always that bad? There are so many games that delay for months since the end of last year.

That first reply is a bit extreme.

Also the unreasonable outrage at the HDD requirement is sad.
i dunno about outrage but 65 gigs for a game is stupid.

it's easy, just make an optional "free dlc download", everyone's happy

i'm not gonna play the game on mega ultra whatever, i don't wanna have to dedicate a tenth of my hard drive to a single game to get textures that i won't use and uncompressed audio i'm not gonna be able to tell the difference

Everyone should buy Life Is Strange. It is awesome and has awesome music. Unfortunately there's no free demo on PC, only on consoles, but episode 1 is cheap enough that it should be a no brainer.
Yep, great game and really awesome music. I already wishlisted a bunch of albums. I can't wait to hear what the other episodes will bring :D

I will, when it's
Finnish
if there are no QTEs and some gameplay, preferably fun ;)

edited: forgot to mention that Loot Hunter got major update,

Loot Hunter update 110 released!
Hi! We have prepared a major update of the game after the feedback we have received from players in the last few days. Here is the list of changes and new features in the new build 110st:

Adjusted collisions with land. The ship should sail more easily.
The camera view was adjusted, so the ships are closer and bigger.
The shops offer five items for sale.
A golden number on an item in a shop indicates an item with a favorable price.
Rare items have higher prices.
Price of a peace with a faction depends on how many ships of that faction you have sunk.
Shop is accessible in locations with a quest.
Autosave after each battle and finished quest.
Ships you buy have different number of slots for upgrades.
Items show, whether they are common, rare or unique.
You can end a battle immediately by a surrender button in the game menu.
You can see multiple enemy ships while in a battle with a squadron.
High level ships are more expensive.
A lot of bugs fixed
edit2: some of those fixes are great, actually.

That's promising, now they just have to keep it that way for the rest of episodes!



It's simply truth of life!

edited: Are they promising to fix Grim Fandango? Any feedback at all?
It is mainly an adventure game with focus on interacting with your environment and having Max give her thoughts about the stuff around her.

I know what it is, but even Telltale games are called adventure games these days, when they are VNs with QTEs (a whole new genre! (><)

So... it's Gone Home.
removed from wishlist this instant!

I lost my entire first act because I forgot to save the entire time when I hit a game breaking bug.
yeah that really sucks

really begs to wonder what the fuck is going on with all these companies

did the good qa companies get shut down? has it become too expensive to betatest games? or is the standard for like shippable bugs suddenly lower industry-wide?

i'm really curious how it can be that there are so many damn fuckups

So... it's Gone Home.
STOP

FUCKING

Yep. Only Max likes '90 stuff, like the Polaroid. Milambers missed the flashdrive thing, apparently.
to be fair - it's a game about high school girls ... so I'm pretty sure Milamber was paying attention to other stuff than when or where the game is set while watching the trailers ;)

Life is Strange feels more like a playable TV series. If the content was based on Freaks and Geeks (based in the 90's) then it would totally be my GOAT but the teen setting reminds me more of the students from my last teaching placement. It's got promise though and a lot of the pop culture references are to things that were pop culture when I was a teen so I don't feel like an old man shaking my hand at the air.

btw, same as Milamber I'm not buying anything until summer sale, except for:
Trails SC
Lightning Returns and kicks versus out of this universe.
WotS4
Wild Season
Stardew Valley (if released)
Atelier Shallie! not on PC unfortunatelly

talking about Wild Season, it's possible to preoder it http://quickfiregames.itch.io/wildseason
but I'm fairly sure, you don't get steam keys if you buy there. Am I wrong?
