thats also a historic low for 7days to die, 7.12 after coupon
Game's way overdue for a bundle imo. At the very least, it'll be a Monthly unlock at some point.

Hope you guys managed to get Keen Dreams and Abrams Tank on Steam. The developer changed their name to Gayben's Flatulent Asshole... and promptly got banned from the site. They even killed the forums, and the badges. My Keen Dreams badge doesn't even show up on my profile anymore.
Edit: Holy crap even the Achievements page is gone!

I dont remember if there was a single demon pre-order bonus, but each of the 3 dlc packs included a new demon. The press release said all maps, weapons, and demons would be going free for everyone. From what I can tell the preorder bonus was just a 'demon' armor set, not a full demon. So you may not get that armor set, but thats just some cosmetic stuff

Last night, the bros played Armello. In typical fashion, no one had played it before except DukeEdward seemed to have some passing knowledge and Parallacks showed great initiative in playing 60% of the tutorial before getting bored. We had enough to run two games (max 4 players) with Duke, Bah, Fox and myself in the one. It's not a bad game, in fact I can't think of any immediate criticisms -- looks good, the UI was pretty navigable, game play seemed like you could do a bit with it. The game was intuitive for us to blunder through but we missed a bit of stuff such as not recognizing that there's multiple win conditions until the final turns of the game. The goal (as I understand it) is to either heal the sick king or else to ascend to the throne yourself either by killing the king or else having the most prestige when the king dies. The final condition was the only one we were really aware of and I won, placing the beloved Queen Bear onto the throne of Forest Animal Land for a thousand years of light and benevolence. Long may she reign. Fox's warrior bear more or less tied with Duke's she-wolf for 2nd/3rd and Bah's wolf guy got a participation trophy.
Tonight is some basketball thing (NBA 2k17?) that I don't own.
Edit: I had Jimbo in there for Duke. Corrected it and all apologies to Mr. Edward. Seems as though the only guy with a clue should get proper credit.

for any r6 bros out there, alpha packs have started. You get a chance (50% + .3%SP) on each win to get a pack drop. You can also buy packs for 4500 renown, so pretty cheap, and Ive gotten a fair amount of cool stuff out of these so far
This is great news for the competent people who farm us in R6!

Time Lords changing gender has been mentioned at least as early as the 1990s in some of the non-television Doctor Who stuff. So it was being floated as an idea before Doctor Who even had its television reboot. They picked a good actress which honestly is the main thing I care about.
Doctor Who is frequently pretty silly or just plain stupid and a lot of episodes in the last couple of seasons were only saved by Capaldi's acting ability making his Doctor interesting even when the story was not. Well that, and Nardole.

It's the same thing as "How come Hollywood only makes sequels and reboots?" -- because those are safer money than the expense of trying to promote and sell a new product which statistically will likely fail. Everyone and their dog has heard about the new Doctor now whether you watch the show or not and I'm sure they'll get a swell of new viewers for at least the start of the season out of curiosity or feminist support. The finite time argument feeds into it. Someone who is going to see one movie every six months is more likely to pick the "safe bet" of a property they have passing familiarity with than something completely new. Likewise, it's a lot harder to make a new show and promote it and try to convince people to watch it than it is to work with an existing show.
Ultimately though, science fiction is a game of "What if...?" so even "they're doing it just because they can" seems like good enough reason to try it.

I think you just need to stay away from RPG's then.
RPG's are normally built for the long-haul, for time-sinks + marathons - a game that normally takes its time to develop a lot of its actual story, plot, character stuff (i.e. Bethesda game - they'll give you tons of quests + stories, but don't often expect depth-galore; they give you a huge pool, but its waters are often shallow). Possibly + hopefully, with all of that story, plot, and character stuff - hopefully they add a lot of depth to all of that (BioWare & Obsidian seem to be the best at the depth part for RPG's on this stuff).
Nonsense. Fallout (pick one -- no, not Brotherhood of Steel or Tactics, smartass) was engaging from the word go. DA:O was good right in. The idea that a game should get a 10+ hour grace period is absurd. It's just poor game making and an insult to the customer if you're going to waste ten hours of their life before the game starts. Same thing with games where the dorks say "The REAL game starts at level 40!" or shit like that. Bitch, I got a million other games where the real game starts at the loading screen so don't even bother with that trash. This isn't like when you were eleven and got Laser Space Dragons 2 for your birthday and it sucked but you weren't getting another game until Christmas so LSD2 for the next six months it is. If you can't grab someone's interest in the first hour, you made a mistake somewhere. I'm not speaking specifically to W3 but any game with the excuse of "You need to play 10/15/20+ hours..." can go lick taints.
As for Dark Souls, I'm happy to just know that it's a genre I have zero interest in. People defend it by saying "But when you FINALLY beat the Zombie Plumber after 35,000 tries it's such a rush and accomplishment" and -- nope -- that ain't my bag. I feel nothing after fifty attempts aside from a quiet hollowness in my soul where the annoyance at having wasted money on a game that takes fifty attempts to beat one guy once smoldered. But, that's cool. That's what DS is and it doesn't pretend to be otherwise so I can leave it with lol2hard4u platformers and bullet-hell games and stuff like that. There's an audience for it but it's not me and that's fine.

the ones left will destroy you though knowledge, skill, perhaps glitches, that a newbie would never know.
Even sadder, you'll be that one random who pops into the abandoned game server on Bro night and pitifully tries to play with us.
In fully unrelated news, I see that they finally turned off the old uBB Steam forums within the last few months. Also, apparently you're not allowed to post screenshots from non-Steam games into your activity feed any longer. Another change from the last couple months but new to me.

If you have PUBG add me on Steam, I have it but haven't played+ experienced it yet. (Won it in a giveaway + freebie) I'm looking to play tomorrow + Saturday if people are around +down with play + enjoy PUBG
It's scheduled for tomorrow at 10:00 PM ET.
Also, that Alex chick doesn't own jack shit. She made the music as a work for hire. The devs own it. Sometimes devs will allow the composer to retain a license to sell the OST or give them a cut of the OST if they are being nice, but this chick has absolutely no right to any of the music. She's abusing the system. And I'm all for trans rights, but if this was a cis gender guy doing this shit I don't know how much the devs and everyone would be concerned about mental health and hoping Alex was okay since Alex is being a big fucking piece of shit pain in the ass. So, I don't know, I don't care one way or the other, and Alex is getting a lot of unnecessary shit from this and death threats, but she's been doling them out too. I mean she's making no logical sense, so I don't think a mental health crisis would be the wrong conclusion but it sounds like she got paid pretty well for what she did (one dev said they paid her $40,000).

My thoughts on today's news.
Chronogg games - my coins are safe another two weeks.
River City Ransom Underground being pulled - I thought about buying it during the sale... I should buy it now...
The person that got RCRU pulled was the same that got Star Mazer DSP pulled - It came back... I'm not gonna bother buying RCRU then.
The Alex person is trans - What does that have to do with them being a pain in the ass to
devs everyone for work they were commissioned to do?
Jotun is free - Sweet, I never did redeem my copy from that free IndieBox.
People posting youtube vids to explain things - I wish we could get a TL;DW for vids. I don't care to watch XX minutes for what could be a few sentences.
MysterD's online gaming/MP only games thoughts - If I have a group of people that for sure will play a game consistently, I like playing with them, and I know I can play consistently, then I feel MP only games are one of the few games that should be bought at full price or near full price. MP only games can die so quickly these days it's foolish to wait if you enjoy MP games.
Domino's has 50% off regular price pizza - Best news ever. I like to get Pan or XL Brooklyn during these promotions, since you can't get those with the $7.99 large three topping they have all the time which is basically the same as half price.

It's interesting how spoiled we've come. A big sale with games you can DL instantly is considered a "dumpster fire". I remember the 90's when a Saturn game cost $70 online after shipping and it could take over a month to arrive - if you even got the game at all. Now we get instant games for $5 and less and no one is happy. SMH.
Why, back in my day you had to go to the speakeasy to hear jazz music but today the kids are all listening to it on their iThings and Walkingmans and boomer boxes! And instead of listening to Frankie Fiver & His Swing Man Band because that's who was performing that night, they want to hear six or seven different music-men on their audio machines! It's the madness of this new generation, I tells ya!
