How about your Epic Game Store senses? Because Thimbleweed Park will officially be their next free game (Feb 21 - Mar 7).

Is that game going to become an Epic Store exclusive too? ;)

The Division private beta started this morning... I didn't get to touch it for long but it's much, much, better than what I had played previously. I suggest anyone with access give it a try. So much of it has been improved upon from the first Division.

Other news, Apex Legends is getting great reviews and pub so maybe Fortnite and Epics source of money will start drying up.

If all of these unbundled games were willing to just give them away, where has Humble been the last few years?

I was just thinking about how we needed another battle royale game to play. 

 

Does it come with teabagging squeakers?

The version of Axiom Verge that's currently free from the EGS is DRM-free, BTW. No idea if the Steam version is as well, but just like with Subnautica before they "fixed" it, you can copy the game folder and uninstall the client and still play the game without issue.

It's free. It introduces some different mechanics.  People are saying it is better than Blackout.  It'll probably guarantee we get a Titanfall 3.  But yeah, let's just be grumps about it.

I don't care about F2P games.  In fact they have hindered development in, if not made all but extinct, one of my favorite genres which is mmorpgs. 

 

People throw money at all sorts of bullshit now, which is why we get the games that we get.  It's why enthusiast level PC components have gotten so expensive too.

Here's something funny: The EGS version of Axiom Verge crashes every time you enter the third area. Here's what the log file says (emphasis mine):

 

Caught exception trying to load SoundEffect Steam
Microsoft.Xna.Framework.Content.ContentLoadException: Could not load asset Audio/SoundEffects/Steam! Error: The content file was not found.

 

Basically, someone tried to scrub any mention of Steam from the files and it ended up crashing the game.

 

FWIW, the third area begins with a bunch of steam pipes.

 

EDIT: Dev fixed it:

Just going to put this game out there, even though it's just released early access and not part of this "sale"

https://store.steamp...y_for_the_Gods/

Obviously it's hitting the Shadow of Colossus notes hard, but it's also not so subtly aping Breath of the Wild and kind of looks like an indie Horizon Zero Dawn. All of these things, especially combined, give me a chubby, but the fact that it almost feels professionally made/plays great for a game only released a week ago. Give'r a look see.

I remember seeing a trailer for that at on of the gaming events.  PAX maybe.  They're the ones that had to change their title because the guys that made the new Prey threw a shit fit over them having "Prey" in the title.

Developers make the games that people put money into. If people put money into crappy games, crappy games are all that will be made. I can see your point here.

This I dont get. I would understand if you were saying that enthusiast level PC components have stagnated because people pay for even the slightest incremental upgrade. But I dont really see how that translates to component prices being so high.

Did you post about it on the Epic Game Store forums to make sure the dev knows about it?

 

oh...

wait...

But has anyone actually spent $$ on the MTX's?

Ain't that the whole point for dev's/pub's doing a F2P game?

The game just came out.  It's not about the money this week, no.  The whole point is to build a dedicated playerbase first  by using charming aesthetics in your game.  Then the $$$ will roll in automatically after that.

They gave me $10 worth of in-game currency for being a Origin Access Premier member.  Used it to buy some loot boxes.  Got some nice stuff - uniforms and gun skins.  You get loot crates just by playing and you can unlock the other legends for free by playing.  Nice system and great game.

Hint: they aren't giving them away. Epic's paying for them.

Off topic, but I just had to free up 28 gig of space on my PS4 in order to download the 200 meg patch for Division 2 beta.

Think I'm going to take advantage of the Steam sale and finally get Witcher 3 and Celeste. Really been wanting both of those although I have no idea when I'll get around to playing Witcher.

 

Probably throw in the cheapest game on my wishlist to get over 30, Hell Girls.

Isn't sloppy programming fun? I had a game that took up 90GB of space (full install size of game) and took an hour to update on Steam because of lazy devs. For a 4gb patch. Since I only had about 80GB free on the ssd it is installed on, steam used the slower harddrive's free space.

 

I didn't have that problem you did with the div2 beta on PC as far as I could tell. It did make me load the game, take 2 minutes then tell me it had to finalize the update and reload the game again, making me watch the intro logos again.

Can I redeem my Derpvision 2 code now via the AMD system?  Didn't bother to check yet since I know launch isn't until March.  I suppose that might give me access to the closed beta, too?  But I've never been a fan of playing betas.



#107609 cobolatrix  

Posted 09 February 2019 - 05:06 PM

You can redeem it now, but it won't give you access to the beta, but a lot of people here got invites so you can get one if you just ask.

 

Edit. By redeem you mean choosing the game or you meant adding the game to uplay? You can do the first but not the second.

Yeah I already picked RE2 and Derpvision, just haven't bothered activating them.
