Is it enough to just add world in conflict and asscreed 4 to your account, as i just did? Or do i also have to download the uplay client and games? I won't be reunited with my pc until the end of the month.

I am asking because neither game has shown up in my transaction history on account.ubisoft.com.

But the mobile site is weird and may not be properly displaying items correctly. Not sure

Borderlands is an RPG?  :-k

 

Is this one of those "Pac-Man can be an RPG if you imagine that you're really eating pellets while being chased by ghosts" sort of things?

 

Or did he really mean this?

Spoiler

 

Borderlands is a FPS (obviously) mixed with some ARPG elements (i.e. crazy loot galore and leveling-up system).

 

No way is Borderlands a usual type of RPG. Doesn't really do the dialogue trees thing and also doesn't really give you those branching choices.

Unless I am mistaken the deluxe version of sword coast legends is just tilesets and things for dungeonmasters. Considering the lack of enthusiasm in the game I imagine everyone will be just fine with the base version unless the deluxe stuff is counted as dlcs and you just have to catch them all.

Okay, so look, there's this movie out called Wonder, and it's basically the movie Mask (not The Mask, with Jim Carrey) where it's about some disfigured kid and blah blah everyone learns to look past his weird face and see his beautiful soul or whatever.

 

But that kid isn't ugly enough! He just looks like he was moderately burned or something, he's not a fuckin freakshow like those kinds of movies need. If you want to have someone overcome their physical deformity you need to make that kid look disgusting, like as soon as you see them you instinctively go EEUUUEGHGH, because then it makes the journey more satisfying at the end.

 

I put this here because I needed to vent my frustrations about such an obvious oversight, thank u

Ok, if. Larry can vent, I can vent here too. Why am I still watching The Walking Dead? It's not because of its intricate plot lines. It's not because of the character development. At this point I'm waiting for all the original characters to get their brains eaten! IS THAT TOO. MUCH TO ASK FOR??? GOD THIS SHOW MOVES SLOWER THAN MOLASSES IN THE ALASKAN WINTER!!!

I bailed after the first season and I'm glad I did, because despite having a fantastic pilot the show just got worse and worse, even within those first few eps

So if you buy Sword Coast Legends now you pay $5+ for some mediocre game that you otherwise would have never bought and will never play, but you can tell all your grandkids that you have a game that was unlisted from steam, which is priceless.

I think you have to add the games from within Uplay some kind of way. I don't know whether you can do that with a mobile app or not, but if so you should be covered. You don't have to actually download them, but I believe you have to add them via Uplay and not just the website. 

 

Unless I am mistaken the deluxe version of sword coast legends is just tilesets and things for dungeonmasters. Considering the lack of enthusiasm in the game I imagine everyone will be just fine with the base version unless the deluxe stuff is counted as dlcs and you just have to catch them all.

Well, there's also a special forum badge. . . and for those soundtrack enthusiasts among us (you know who you are), it includes the soundtrack. 

 

 

 

 

Has anyone been following this Ataribox business? I find it weird that no information on available games, pricing or specs is available. Is it just like a Steambox with some old Atari games preloaded? If that's the case, I can understand why they wouldn't want to dole out details, because that's just goofy. I'd rather buy an old Flashback device for when I get super-nostalgic about playing Pong, Centipede, and Space Invaders.

I can understand bailing. I think after the first 3-4 seasons it's really lost momentum. Should have went from 16 episodes down to 8-10 episodes and tighten up the whole show.

Also, I don't believe they have any end game in mind, they just want to keep milking the cash cow. Which I suppose is what makes sense from a business perspective.

Looking for a good sci-fi/fantasy show to watch, anyone have any suggestions before my post is removed for being off topic?

On topic: there is a 15% off sale somewhere on a Steam game.

I could have sworn Diluvion was one of the Connect games a few minutes ago, but it's gone now.  Maybe I'm seeing things, but I could swear it was there.  I had been wrestling with whether to buy Diluvion on sale for 75% off on Steam, and seeing it on Connect almost pushed me over to the buy column.  But it's not showing now.  Anyone else see Diluvion on Connect?

It was, I saw it too when I ran it an hour or so ago.  I think they swapped it with Zombie Night Terror since I don't recall seeing that one at that time.

That's kinda by design. The comic is that way too, and Kirkman was upfront about how the concept was a series that never had to end. I think it kinda got bogged down by being too attached to certain characters, though. Rick really should have died long ago, but he's the main dude, so he can't, even though ANYONE CAN at ANY MOMENT!

 

I don't know if it counts, but Happy! just started and I loved the first episode. It's on Syfy, and involves a tiny flying blue unicorn, which is pretty fantastical.

 

The most surprising thing is that it's based on the absolute worst Grant Morrison comic, yet somehow might end up being the best comic TV show. I also wasn't aware they can say Fuck on Syfy before watching it.

 

They put the whole first ep up on the tubes, too. Other than that, yes, Black Mirror has some very good episodes, but being an anthology, it's also pretty uneven.

No, it definitely was.  This is the list I made when I updated the GOG topic:

 

Age of Wonders III
Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition
Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition
Darkest Hour: A Hearts of Iron Game
Diluvion Fleet Edition Upgrade
For The Glory: A Europa Universalis Game
Homeworld: Desert's of Kharak
Homeworld Remastered Collection
INSIDE
LIMBO
>observer_
Outlast
Perception
Punch Club
Rebel Galaxy
Rogue Wizards
Sengoku
Sunless Sea
Tahira: Echoes of the Astral Plane
The Final Station
Torment: Tides of Numenera

 

Looks like they added Zombie Night Terror, but removed Diluvion and Torment: Tides of Numenera.

Just want to add my two cents:  I'm still really enjoying The Walking Dead.  If you're after the zombies munching brains, you're sure to be disappointed, but the characters and drama in a post-apocalyptic world are excellent.  And Negan is always entertaining.

 

For those looking for a Sci-fi show that's really good, try The Expanse.  Smart, gritty, hard sci-fi.  Solid production values and really entertaining.  I don't think it's airing now, but pretty sure ou can get a season or two from Netflix or Hulu.  Genuinely hard to believe this was on the Syfy channel.

 

Finally, GOG, y u do dis????

I don't actually care about TWD one way or the other though.  I watched Season one (or most of it?) and got bored.  I'm a little surprised that it's still chugging along but then we have six seasons and counting of Two Broke Girls so who am I to guess what shows stick around?

I nabbed Torment just in time!  So I guess that's something.  Seems like titles are disappearing every time I refresh the page.

I kind of avoided playing the game because of all the noise surrounding it even thought I scored it on the newegg glitch.  Im kinda enjoying it,  there is a lot of game here, maybe even too much game,  even if you just play solo.  It looks good and they did amazing with the city and the maps.

 

Was all the flap about the dark zone?  I have a feeling it probably sucked,  because lets be honest,  people are dicks and ruin everything they touch.  Ill get my 30-40 hours out of the game running with the bros and be more than satisfied.  Division Fridays?

There was more to it then the Dark Zone but, undoubtedly the DZ was the biggest part of it for a number of reasons... Mostly because the game lacked a real PvP mode and it was the only place for the PvPers to enjoy the game the way they wanted too... but they left allot of victims in their path because the PVE players where just trying to farm the landmarks and the PvPers would often wipe them out from behind while they where engaged with the NPCs.

 

Also when the game first came out the punishment was pretty extreme for going rogue and dying....  Like you could lose whole DZ ranks if you died so they lowered it... but they lowered it so much that they're was so little punishment that the Rogues didn't care about dying...  So it went from something that would rarely happen to something that happened allot.

 

Finally, the loot was just so poor when it came out...  You could look for weeks for the high end weapon you really wanted and, frankly, never have that model drop...  Let alone have the talents you wanted.  So progression could basically grind down to nothing and it did so quickly.  (Also you couldn't trade drops, you couldn't reroll any talents on weapons.)  We've all heard that expression about the deck being stacked against you...  The early Division experience was pretty much five decks stacked against you.  Hell, I got extremely lucky with a 163 SOCOM M1A drop with Balanced in the 3rd shot or I could have been one of those heading for the doors...  but maybe not.  I really love the world the game has, the detail, etc.  Its truly one of the most amazing (though scary as Fuck I hope this never happens in the real world) world's every created in gaming.

 

TLDR: Loot and a lack of true PVP was the big issues in my mind...  1.4 fixed allot and each patch since has, frankly, built upon that new base.

 

The latest (and last) Global Event launched this morning...  28K players in the game this morning.  The recent totals have been about 4k-5K so the game is still beloved by some and I see allot of threads on Division websites of people coming back every day.  Its really quite amazing. 

 

I truly hope we see a season 3...  Paid or free (like season 2 was) I don't really care.

Saw Torment and have been tempted to buy it from cdkeys, but just doesn't seem worth it at this point. It bombed in reviews and I doubt they profit much, especially when cdkeys is selling it so damn cheap. Guaranteed to get humbled.

I know, and I agree. I think that concept only worked if, like I said, they actually started fresh every now and then, but instead it became too attached to certain characters which makes them seem unkillable when the whole Thing is that ~nobody's safe~.

 

It's still around because, for some reason, people keep watching it despite everyone apparently hating it. Also, Two Broke Girls is cancelled, but don't worry, because Young Sheldon will be around for the rest of our lifetimes.
