I wish I'd bought Bloody Good Time when the community was active. Really fun game, and one of the most unique deathmatch games I've played. The different ways you can kill people are hilarious, and you get more fame (which is what determines your score) depending on what weapon you're using so you have to keep switching weapons rather than stick with what's best which is a good way of balancing things out. Plus when you kill someone while they're sleeping/eating/on the toilet (which is required to maintain your stats) you get double fame.

 

Too funny watching Reds run around like an idiot on fire when there's a fountain of water right next to him, or killing someone while they're on the toilet after their moans/farts give away their location. I think Bah didn't like it much though, but Fox and I enjoyed it. The weapons and traps set it apart from most other games, I suggest buying it if you're bored with AAA MP shooters. We have another event planned next month, but maybe we could schedule it again sooner. The game does have a little bit of a learning curve cuz there's a lot of depth to it, but it's solid once you figure out all of the mechanics.

TWD is a bad show.

It sure is. It's a soap opera that relies on violence and emotional exploitation for entertainment value. It's basically the D-Trump of TV shows.

TWD is a bad show. It has a good episode here and there but every season is mostly comprised of forgettable filler. Without any clear plan to actually end the series the narrative and story arcs have no payoff. Characters die, others join group, they go from point A to B, they meet another group led by a big mean bad guy, they suffer losses, they escape, rinse and repeat.

 

The last season finale was pretty bad but got me to finally realize I'm not interested or invested in the show. I should have stopped watching after season 3. Kept with it hoping there might be some closure for Rick and the core characters who are still alive, and that the show would have a clear transition to a new group of characters. I guess that's not going to happen anytime soon now that there's a spinoff.

 

Yes, I realize this is who I sound like.

I'm kind of surprised by the hate for TWD...  Then again all that its about is man's continued desire to survive no matter what.  There will be no happy ending, no one is going rush in at the last minute and save the remains of mankind...  Basically, it comes down to how far do you want to walk down a endless road before you give up?

 

Anyhow, I enjoy it.  I think the next episode will really tell is about the future of the show...  but I guess I'm mostly happy that the value of the comics keeps going up.  :D/

This is how I feel too. It's pretty much recycled drama. When I watch a tv series, I tend to always stick to the end even though most shows goes downhill after S2. I gave up on TWD after Season 5 or 6...

I rarely ever cut off watching a tv show but I guess my tolerance level isn't as high as before. TWD is a perfect example of redundancy so it was easy.

I liked Bloody Good Time (despite getting frustrated from time to time with the controls).  I mean, it's not a AAA shooter or anything but it's fun and unique and certainly better than a lot of indie shooter/hunt games we've played.  Like Spoder said, the mechanics force you to keep moving and swapping weapons so there's no "I'll hide here with the sniper rifle".  Fun game but dead community so you'd have to bro night it or convince a bunch of people to buy it.

Have you played The Ship?

As far as I know, BGT is a sequel that removed features from The Ship

Bloody Good time was pretty good. Can't say I am as excited about it as Spoder but I did enjoy it. Was worth the buck and change.

I've played The Ship a couple of times, but didn't like the social aspect of it and the matchmaking kind of sucked. maybe the new version fixed the issues with the matchmaking but I preferred how Bloody Good Time stripped it down. I think overall BGT is a better game, but I'll have to play The Ship Remasted sometime to see what it's like.

 

The Ship is probably better if you're really into the social aspect and have a good group to play with, but that isn't my thing.

Well... Welcome.

 

Not really.

 

Steams main "sales" are Winter and Summer.  They do have Fall and Spring sales. 

 

I highly recommend googling isthereanydeal to see.

 

Anymore, it's highly unlikely to get a "good" Steam sale (meaning greater than 60-80% off).  Bundles for new people are a great way to build a library.  Really you're pulling the trigger on one or two games and the rest are 'free'.

 

Steam runs weekly and weekend sales and sometimes there's a sparkle to the turds but for the most part most of us try to take advantage of oopsies.  And lately just Fakey-bro'ing (buying it retail).

I didn't mind it. We've played better, we've played worse. It was nice looking considering its age and at least it tried to do things differently.

I'm going to contradict the other response to this as I think he's a little off.

 

- Steam does have a "fall" sale that falls around Black Friday. It's not like the big ones in that its less populated in terms of the amount of games onsale (Winter/Summer are the big ones) but its a decent enough preview of the Winter sale and in years past Ive spent more during it than during Winter sale. The prices during that sale will be the same during winter. Winter Sale lasts two weeks and starts fairly close to Xmas time. You wont be able to miss it. Last year I used Fall to plan what I wanted most during Winter and get a general idea of how much I wanted to spend. 

- There will probably be a Halloween sale this week. It will probably start on Thursday. Obviously it will focus on horror games and things like that, but you may find something then. 

- Amazon in the past has had killer Black Friday deals on digital games (yes Steam keys for many). The past 2 years have been a bit blah since they don't care about their digital division as much as they have in the past, but they do tend to match Steam on the bigger named games + its a good place to get things like EA games (they are on EA's own platform called Origin which have many exclusives) and uPlay which is Ubisoft's. They also will have decent deals on physical copies, 99% of those these days will contain a Steam (or Origin or uPlay key depending on DRM) inside the box.

- There will be other random deals around Black Friday from other sites. Best is to watch this thread as the active users tend to be forthcoming about deals they find. Other places to watch are the subreddit, Game Deals. 

 

He's right about bundles though. You can get on those at any time. There are many bundle sites that cater to PC gamers with Humble Bundle being the one with the most quality. And ones like Bundle Stars and Indie Gala being more hit or miss. There's a lot more bundle sites than just these 3, just google "indie game bundles" and you'll find plenty of sites that list them all.

 

I'd also recommend checking out the trade section here (Master Lists) and look at the Steam thread. Lots of opportunities to get games you may have missed really cheap user to user. Another option is the site Steamgifts.com which does a lot of giveaways and have a very active trade section. You may not have a large enough collection to join there yet, but its something to think about if you want to try more user to user options.

Probably not worth a buy right now but likely worth a spot on the ole wish list. Ghouls and Ghost inspired, which you don't see that often.

re: Bloody Good Time

 

I enjoyed it a lot mostly because it was different.  I think the Hunt mode is actually not as good as the Deathmatch.  Deathmatch is good because of the way different weapons and kills (traps) give you more points so there's a little strategy rather than kill, kill, kill.  It is a bit frustrating and the controls and weapon switching could be better, but overall enjoyed it. 

 

We have it scheduled on a bro night next month too for those that missed last night. 

 

re: The Ship

 

I know it's technically a sequel, but I remember we tried to bro-night it a while ago and we couldn't figure out what was going on or what to do.  BGT makes everything a lot clearer so I think that's where it wins.  If Remasted is an improvement to BGT I would be willing to give it a try. 

 

re: The Walking Dead

 

I really love it, but hey I love most things zombies.  I don't get the hate for the show either.  I mean I get it's not everyone's cup of tea, nothing ever is. I feel part of it is just general backlash when something becomes too popular the geeks that were into it before it became popular get mad.  Like it was cool at first when it came out, but then it was a major number 1 hit and now it's not cool anymore.  

 

It's based on a comic, which means like most comics it is going to have major plot holes and nonsensical story arcs and convenient revisions of history, and it's NEVER GOING TO END!  Which may be the main problem it seems for some.  It's never going to end.  It's just going from one villain/challenge to the next with a lull in between.  I do think it has it's weaknesses at times.  I think that there was sort of a boring period during the season on the farm.  I think some of the "villains" sort of get built up for an entire season and then the actual conflict or pay off lasts one or two episodes when they could draw it out more.  Some of the deaths feel wasted.  But overall I still enjoy it more than most shows.  Enjoy Fear the Walking Dead too although it took me almost both full seasons to start getting a little invested into the characters.

The Walking Dead is still pretty good.  But it has its ups and downs.  There are individual episodes each season that stand out as truly amazing.  The Morgan backstory episode Here's not Here as well as the discovery of the town Hilltop stand out as highlights of season 6.  The Grove from S4 with Carole and Lizzie was one of my favorite episodes of the entire series.  However S6 was pretty weak compared to season 5.  The introduction to Alexandria was much more appealing than the whole getting the walker heard away from town and impending doom of the Saviors arc.  S6 was just nonstop danger and and a bleak outlook.  I feel the exact same way about season 4 being much weaker than season 3.  S3 was really interesting with the thriving Woodbury community.   But then S4 just dragged and dragged with the resolution of S3 while they sat in the prison forever.  Man the prison got stale.  By far the worst part of the entire series were the later prison episodes.  That was a huge mistake by the writers to have the crew sit in the prison for two whole seasons.  However, S4 ended on many interesting notes with both the Claimers and the intro to Terminus. 

 

S4 and S6 were by far the weakest seasons imo.  They certainly didn't do a good job of keeping any lasting appeal at the end of S6 with Negan and the Saviors.  Things have just gotten so abysmal.  Worst part is it feels like they are just writing from season to season with no complete series arc in mind, no planned ending, no end in sight.   Shows that meander with no plan on how to end a series tend to be looked back upon quite unfavorably.  The best TV series are almost always five to seven seasons for a reason.

And thats where its going to hover for a while. Its EA. EA games typically don't drop even on the grey market early in release. The place to get them was always Mexican Origin before they raised the price there.

 

You're going to have to bite at that price or wait. It was the same way with FIFA and other recent EA releases. I'd expect BF1 to get a sale around Black Friday which is what Im waiting for.
