i'm waiting for that to plan my cs2 replay followed by cs3 right before cs4
I thought about doing that until I remembered how mind-numbingly boring Rean and old class 7 were in the first two games (and it's not like old class 7 was much better in 3, but at least Rean was somewhat more tolerable in the new role). :coffee-blob:

Looking forward to when MS announced what they will do with Zenimax. My reaction to social media posts will basically be

I suspect it might end like EA and Codemasters deal meaning Codemasters will maintain certain degree of autonomy.

We (EA) will be treating the Codemasters’ studios as an independent group for the foreseeable future, giving them all the support they need to deliver their much-loved games and exploring all opportunities for growth as we go,

"for the foreseeable future..." when is the end of the financial year? April? I reckon we'll hear differently once earnings etc have been dealt with.
Let's hope the Codies don't get an invite to a picnic in the woods in May.

I forgot but I am more confused, 2 hours left? Its beyond Jan 22nd..
We're just joking around because Wok was like a madman reminding everyone to get their choices in before the voting period closed. Don't worry about it.
On another note, what the heck is your avatar picccy?

Haha yeah I can't wait to see the outrage on Era and other forums when PS5 owners realize that the next Skyrim, Doom and Fallout won't come to their platform of choice. I wonder if they still think that exclusivity is good for competition when/if that happens. ;)

I'm not too happy with MS purchasing Zenimax either by the way. While this means these games aren't likely to become exclusive to a single launcher, Microsofts ridiculous €70 pricetag makes it unlikely that I'll be buying them until a steep discount. Game Pass coming to Steam or a decent client would be the best thing happening for me. Any new rumors about this Queen?

I guess the only change PC gamers will see regarding Zenimax games is a Xbox Live login which I have no problems with and change in publisher name in the store page (Bethesda -> Xbox Game Studios).

Nothing else.

Hopefully they won't be released as Store apps because that's the one gateway i'm not prepared to deal with at the moment.

Don't forget to pause that humble choice if you're subscribed and don't want the new one. It'll autobill tomorrow, I believe.
I don't know if I got it wrong but pausing the sub tomorrow before the new deadline ends would cancel current monthly Choice not next one. Am I wrong?

Yep. Pause if you don't want Feb. Next month starts on the 2nd.

I had a quick look about but couldn't see anything and figured some of us might be interested in this.
NoxCrew have released "Terra Swoop Force Remastered" a rerelease of their classic "Terra Swoop Force" updated for Minecraft Bedrock and Java 1.16+
It's great. Basically you leap into a tunnel and glide through branching paths and obstacles to reach the next section. It's really easy to play and good fun.

It's a rather straightforward mode, dunno if there's any guides for it.

I can try to give a few basic tips though:
  • The mode works in levels, the level is increased every 2 kills (using guns) and you get a new weapon every level.
  • Using the regular knife to kill an opponent brings you up to the next level even if you were at a point where you needed 2 kills to level up and it also decreases the opponent's level.
  • The weapons you get throughout the levels follow a specific order, going from machineguns, to assault rifles, shotguns, snipers, heavy machinegun, pistols, and at the end the golden knife.
  • The first player to use the golden knife to kill an opponent wins the game.
Thanks but I picked that all up while playing the game. Meant more like strategies like how to play to get a kill with the golden knife for example. I should've made that one clearer

XCOM2 just got a tiny random 19.5k update... makes me nervous. Every time they screw with this they break something. I need to switch to my GOG installs...

I discovered this game today and the atmosphere and theme reminded me a bit of Dark Souls. Since it says Definitive Edition I guess this is not the first time this game releases. Has anybody heard about the game?

yes, it was shown for the first time when Iphone 11 was showcased, it was one of those "gaming" moments on the stage prior Apple Arcade.

Pricing Reminder: making sure customers all over the globe can buy your game

Supporting lots of currencies provides a better user experience on Steam. What happens if a local price is missing?
We wanted to share a quick reminder about global pricing to help developers ensure that their games are available in every currency we support.

Steam supports 39 different currencies globally. If the package for your game does not have pricing entered for all local currencies, then users in some countries won’t be able to buy your game. For example, if your game doesn’t have a price in Japanese Yen, then users located in Japan won’t be able to purchase it.

If your game has been out for a few years, then it would be a good idea to double-check the pricing entered on your store package, as Steam may have added new currencies since the last time you entered your pricing. There is a tutorial video on how to enter and update your pricing in the Pricing Documentation page along some things to consider when entering pricing.

Sometimes customers will bring this to our attention, if they can’t buy a game they’re interested in. When that happens, we reach out to give you a heads up, and then you can enter a price in the missing currency.

Steam provides guidance for pricing your game in the many supported currencies, but ultimately it’s up to you to decide how to price your game.

"[...]collectables and shine shit[...]"

EA is letting this guys do what the fuck he wants, LOL, I love it.
Ive read before that the EA Original partnership is really good, they basically let the devs they partner with do what they want and when EA has recouped their investment all additional revenue goes to the devs.

I mean, I wouldn't expect a man like Fares to partner with a company who would treat him and his employees bad.

I want to be optimistic for once and I believe I see some subtle words regarding regional pricing from Valve there, meaning "please don't hesitate to use our suggested regional pricing for your products".

Also, I believe Valve is trying to not interfere with this particular issue and tries to remain as neutral as possible like Switzerland but I would like to think they sure get emails from users complaining about awful regional pricing set by some publishers as well as those who can't purchase games because there is no local currency set for them.

Maybe this is a glimpse of hope or so I want to believe like the X-Files.

Valve can't tell people what to price their games but they understand better than anyone that proper pricing means more money in the long run.

According to Resetera insiders a enhanced sku of Death Stranding is coming to PS5 with new story content.

I hope it will come to PC too. I'd gladly pay for it.

"Stop overpricing your games and losing sales in untapped markets you dumb motherfuckers"
i wish they did ... but it's not that, sadly :( it's just a reminder to add prices for the currencies that have been introduced after the games went on sale ... because without doing that those games aren't available in those countries at all
