Next spring Steam will allow you to convert gems into bracelets.
Then during the summer, you can convert bracelets into coins.
Then the following fall, you can convert coins into pogs.
Then during the holiday sale, convert pogs into rations.
Then after that you can convert rations into Gaben idols.


Honestly, I wasn't too far off...

I especially hate it when trying to get the news.  Pretty much why all mainstream news media websites are worthless now.  Everything has to be a video.

Don't disagree with any of this; although my stance against EPIC is entirely due to their exclusivity shenanigans.  If they want to give away free stuff, great.  But I won't be buying anything from their store until they drop those paid exclusivity arrangements.

I very much agree with Mooby on this. 

I'm sure my stance would probably be different had Epic launched just a bit earlier, but by the that Epic opened their game store and started giving stuff away,  I already had thousands of games on Steam thanks to bundle purchases, and I was already slightly annoyed that I had to deal with GOG, Desura, Origin, Uplay or Battle.net for a few other games.  

It didn't help that I saw how poorly they handled account management with Unreal Tournament, so when they wanted me to start giving them credit card info and stuff like that?  I gave it a pass.  Enough time went by that not only did their free games end up being heavily bundled elsewhere, but lots of their timed exclusive started to show up... and at similar prices or better. 

Every time they've run their flat $10 coupon sales, I've gotten close to telling myself I should stop being pigheaded about this, but I realize that pretty much all of what I'd buy will just get added to the backlog, and by the time I get around to playing the game it'll probably be bundled elsewhere or get given away by Twitch Prime or added to Microsoft Game Pass. 

I guess if you weren't buying bundles while bundles were still kinda good, don't have Game Pass and don't have Amazon Prime, the allure of it would have been a lot more... it is a lot of free games and the occasional huge sale they had were pretty decent. 

But they've never been good enough to get over my misgivings over their security and data security as well as my distaste for their insistence on using exclusives.

Or having an actual sale with added incentive coupons that save customers money ... no no, I prefer stupid meta games where I can collect gems and cards that end up having barely any value. And if I buy $50 worth of overpriced games, maybe I'll get a $5 coupon. Sorry mates, Steam has been a joke for years. The only reason I still use it is the investment that's already been made ... otherwise, they've gotten lazy and bloated.

Just finished Chimera Squad. I really enjoyed the game, the breach mechanic, close quarters focus, and different turn structure definitely added a nice twist to the normal xcom formula. I did encounter some pretty bad bugs and crashes. The game froze several times and just closed itself on multiple occasions, which was annoying, but the bigger issue was the inventory bugs I encountered, mostly the fact that the masterwork shotgun wouldn’t appear in anyones inventory after crafting and buying it, which just made things a little more difficult in the last missions. (Apparently there’s a fix by editing some files in the game, but I didn’t wanna mess with that unless I couldn’t finish without it)

My go to squad was Godmother, Claymore, Terminal and Patchwork, with Axiom as my go to when someone developed a negative trait.

I had also posted a while back about my new pc build blue screen crashing and tweaking a few settings. That didn’t actually fix anything, but I determined one of the sticks of ram I got was bad, so after dealing with that everything is all good.

Gonna start focusing on Gears Tactics now. I enjoyed the hour or so I played before I got hooked on XCom

So I finished up Rage 2 tonight and it wasn't nearly as bad as I was led to believe.  If all you do is play the game for about an hour its not that great.  The story sucks and the game makes you want to strangle most of the voiced characters.  There is a lot of driving around which isn't necessarily a bad thing since the different vehicles are (for the most part) fun to drive, but there is just so damn much driving that you get tired of it quick.  Where the game really shines is the combat.  The different weapons and abilities you unlock along with the fast paced combat was really enjoyable.  Pretty much Doom in the desert.  It is an open world ubisoft esque collect-athon game but the varied locations and great combat alleviated a lot of the repetitiveness that goes along with having a million ?s to discover on the map.

 

Having said that disregard it all because there is apparently a very common bug where if you save and turn the game off before completing the last mission as soon as you receive it (like I did), or if you die or otherwise enter a loading screen, pretty much anything besides immediately doing the last mission results in this bug.  And this bug makes it completely impossible to pickup the last mission, its gone from your logs, none of the quest people will talk with you, you're just stuck.  How big a piece of shit company can Bethesda be if this apparently fairly common bug has been around this long and not fixed?  What a joke.  I just youtubed the ending and uninstalled.

 

Prior to getting shafted at the end I would have rated Rage 2 a solid 7/10.  Instead I rate it a spectacular 10 pieces of shit out of 10.  

 

I'm glad I didn't pay for Rage 2 as that would've been the ultimate slap in the face.  It was enjoyable for the most part and for the time I put into it I'm not sad I gave it a shot on gamepass.  Getting blocked from being able to finish the game when you're at the end is the ultimate kick in the balls though.

Decided to take a chance on another rogue like card game. This one is Meteorfall: Krumit's Tale still in early access.

 

I have played a decent amount of this (very addicting) and it's a good one. First of all the graphics are very Adventure Time like and quite nice. The sounds are also excellent and sound very action packed and all. The gameplay is unique where you have a board that I believe is 3x4 that has enemies as well as your own decks items. There are 4 characters that all play differently and get their own unique cards and some powers. You pretty much have to clear out every enemy and after that you move onto the next area. Everything other than the order the cards come out in is very deterministic. If you do 2 damage every turn in battle you will do that. It makes the numbers add up easier though abilities and cards make some of the math a little harder to predict. You can have 4 items on your character at a time that could be weapons, items, potions, armor, abilities, etc... Balancing when you can take out enemies easily or with just some damage is the draw of the game. There are some status ailments in freeze, poison and burn, which can help you out. Frankly it gets hard quickly after a few stages and becomes punishing later. I think a decent problem is in the later stages figuring out how to build yourself up early as all the fights are hard. Every few stages has a boss in it too which are difficult. Another major flaw is that every enemy has a set attack pattern, but in the actual fights I'm not sure if there is a way to check them. In the before you enter an area screen there you can click the enemies and see the attacks, but I'm not sure how to do it when the level starts. This is needed as I said everything is deterministic in battles. Honestly the whole game is very original and very unique. It's super fun and I'm sure will be great when released. It's fully featured already in its early access form. 8/10

I am loving these mainly because I have noticed you also have an interest in card games like I do. I would love to get a ranking list of all the card games that you have played if you don't mind.

Hey guys! Did you know that you can add non-steam games to Steam and that Epic's client isn't good? My mind's blown over here!
