I put off trying these types of RPGs (Baldur's-Gate-like? is this called crpg?) because I know sometimes the combat can be tedious. I think this will be a good entry point for me. I'm really enjoying it so far because I can take my time with it and explore and stuff. I'm a little bothered by having so many decisions on how to deal with things because I fear missing out on ALL the possible outcomes but I've really forced myself to just go with my gut and not worry about missing anything.

If you can't get RCT2 to work, try OpenRCT2

Re: Let's talk about Stream and buy mountains of games

Summer sale is on.

Pretty underwhelming as usual but at least Doom Eternal is 50% off.

Re: Let's talk about Stream and buy mountains of games

Picked up a few games, among them Monster Train.

It's been a lot of fun so far - seems like a perfect match for anyone who likes Slay the Spire. And who doesn't?

Re: Let's talk about Stream and buy mountains of games

Are they still jacking prices up right before the sale and then listing them on sale near the original sale price?

Not seeing any obvious effort to compete with Epic yet.

Four big sales per year, plus a number of smaller ones. Halloween is the next big one, but not as big as this one, Autumn, or Winter sales.

Most games will go on sale at some point between sales also. If there is something you really want, wishlist it and you'll get notified if it is on sale.

Nobody, with the possible exception of Sweeney, thinks epic is any competition to Steam or a threat they have to respond to.

A "business model" based on spending millions buying exclusives and giving away free games is pretty much out-competing itself in the long run.

Re: Let's talk about Stream and buy mountains of games

So strange, new account, first post, replying to a 10 year old post that is post #209 in this thread, so not like it is shortly after opening it if starting from the beginning, properly using the quote function and doesn't appear to be spam.

I think if he is quoting post 200 he has clearly missed something.

I don't quite understand how that type of post occurs so often. Not just on here, but many forums internet-wide.

Do some people just google things and then reply to the first search result, no matter the post date?

On the front page the there are links to first 9 pages of this thread. That post was on the 9th page. I guess it is not impossible to think 9th page is the most recent page.

Please don't allow this to become a derail but I laugh and forget about the "ps no republicans" part each time I read it.

That's exactly what happened lol. I didn't saw it was from before 10 years ago at all.

EDIT: I was legit wondering why the hell these people still talk about TF2 and L4D2 in 2020.

Uplay+ is having a free week. Works even if you used the free month before.

And speaking of Uplay, free PC copy of Watchdogs 2 if you log in during Ubisoft's "E3-ish" show on Sunday 12th.
