I have to agree with Nothing371 that a lot of players generally take a break after an epic CRPG which also may factor in the sales.


This is definitely true for me. I decided to take a breather after seeing how the sequel handled imported saves, and it's a fairly interesting spin on the scenario. Without dropping much in the way of spoilers, the game kills you in the introduction.

Welp.  I did my part and bought 3. 

 

But yeah that's a very telling statistic.  There is only so much room in the world for new release CRPGs.  People play like one, and then take a break.  Plus you've got Divinity 2 stealing the limelight with better review scores as the definitive game that everyone is going to buy first. 

Its not just that but all of the competition this year in CRPG's. Its a haven for fans after a long drought but we have POE2, Pathfinder: Kingmaker, Bards Tale, & Divinity2. Two of those within a week or two of each other.

 

From the article:

 

"Yeah, I thought as much when I backed! The question is not why Obsidian failed that so much as why they thought that was a likely target.

It's possible they *didn't* think it was likely, and structured things such that they'd never have to pay back Fig investors (or Fig itself!)"

I'm not sure if it was mentioned, but I just noticed Fanatical has the Broken Sword 1, 2, and 3 as their daily deal for $1. 

For a few more hours at least.

Risk of Rain 2.  Not sure about the change to 3D but I'm excited anyway.  Loved the first one.

I'll be honest.  PoE was slow.  I play it because I like slow.  PoE2 was meh.  I just don't get the whole pirate thing and the story didn't progress fast enough to interest me.  D1+2 I bought but didn't get into because of the cartoon-y detail.  I like the controls better, but also don't enjoy where I control multiple characters.  The character selection was also goofy.  I felt like I had to read through piles of materials to decide on character choices.

Agreed, the first one was fantastic, played tons of it. However, the change to 3D really turns me off from the second, not going to bite for a while.

As long as the item stacking stays the same (or very similar), I'm pumped.

Have they put out any boss footage yet?

Gross on Risk of Rain 3D. I would have preferred a slightly less pixellated 2D version. It could be alright though, but I also enjoyed the first quite a bit.

I believe the item stacking is the same, stays unlimited.

 

The only possible boss footage I saw was what was included in the trailer.

Good deal on the new i5-9600k if you were looking for a new processor like me.

No more free games for madjoki.

Valve has rewarded a man with $20,000 after he discovered a bug which let people generate thousands of free codes at once for any game.

 

The flaw was rooted out by security researcher Artem Moskowsky who reported it to Valve on August 7.

 

Valve fixed the issue weeks ago and it has since been made public via HackerOne.

 

By changing a single parameter, any person with a developer account on the portal could generate thousands of activation keys simultaneously for any other game hosted by Steam.

 

Speaking with The Register, Moskowsky says he found the bug by chance while exploring the functionality of a web application.

If Observer was in the BTA Tier, I'd order this Bundle up.

But, it's not there.

 

With Observer in the $15 tier, they really need to pack other games other than just *that* one to get me enticed to buy the $15 tier.

FWIW, just read that the RX 590 (launching November 15th) will include codes to redeem the following games for free:

 

The Division 2

Devil May Cry 5

Resident Evil 2

 

Card will supposedly cost ~20% more than the 580 for ~10% more performance, but that's as good a haul as you're ever likely to get from a GPU purchase.

Dunno if the extra 12% POWAH is worth the price... especially assuming 580's will get steeper discounts on Black Friday to push out the inventory with a new model coming in.

Asking these jokers is a fools game.  They will list a price then bitch about it and MysterD will write a dissertation on it.

Great idea. Just give me a while and you'll get about 6 or 7 paragraphs worth of stuff, okay? ;)

Is this gonna be 8GB of VRAM (like the 580)? Or did they increase the VRAM count?

If this means I can get a Division 2 code for cheap, then I'm happy.

In news that nobody cares about, I've been going through my wishlist and trimming the fat. I was up to something like 2,200 games which is utterly ridiculous. I'm about 1/3 of the way through (going by date added, oldest first) and have removed nearly 300 titles. Right now I'm in the range of games added in early to mid 2017, which is when I was fairly liberal about what I wishlisted. My removal rate has increased, so I could very well end up removing over 1,000 games when all's said and done.
