WARSAW

Use everything at your disposal to help a team of accidental heroes survive the onslaught in their home city and overcome tremendous odds stacked against them in this tactical rpg set on the streets of occupied Warsaw of 1944.

Enlist the help of men and women, soldiers and civilians, the young and the old and use their unique skills, expertise and abilities to challenge the enemy. Meet people from all walks of life united in their attempt to overthrow the German occupiers.

Create a mix of versatile skills that will allow you to flank your enemies, detonate obstacles, snipe stragglers and push or pull enemies into the area where your carefully planned attacks deal the most damage.

Make sure your Heroes are stacked with the right weapons salvaged, obtained from the enemy or air drops. Develop them using medal system to unlock a unique set of skills, and construct the best team of all the Heroes – both joining the forces and enlisted in the Hideout in exchange for the collected resources.

Make your way on the carefully reconstructed map of Warsaw of 1944, encountering both historical and random events that immerse you in the story of the city that valiantly stood up to the Nazi oppressor. Patrol the streets fulfilling the orders issued by HQ, discover facts about the past of your Heroes and decide when to fight, and when to withdraw.

Learn all the strengths and weaknesses of your assigned team. Find the best combination of personnel, weapons and skills to overcome more and more lethal enemies thrown to quell the uprising. Fight your way through infantry, specialized troops, heavily armed units, special ordnance and armored vehicles. Make your choices in many story-infused events and live with their results. And don’t let the ever-increasing ferocity and intensity of forces thrown your way stop you from your one goal. Turning your Heroes into survivors. Not victims.



Neo Cab

Hold on to humanity in a world overcome by automation. Play as Lina, the last human driver-for-hire on the streets of Los Ojos. Your friend and only lifeline has gone missing; with no money and nowhere to stay, the only thing you can do is keep driving.

Meet people. Learn their stories. Stay human!

From the Neo Cab app, you’ll choose your passengers and navigate the city grid. Connect and converse with them as you drive to their destination. You’ll need to maintain your perfect rating to stay on the road. Balance your monetary needs and the needs of your passengers with your own emotional wellbeing. What’s more important: your mental health or your star rating?

As you discover the secrets of the city from the front seat of your cab, you may uncover more about the danger facing your friend Savy.

Each character you meet has their own story to tell, and secrets to share. Every choice you make affects your mood, and your mood will affect what choices are available to you.

This is an emotional survival game. Balance what feels right with what Lina needs to survive.

Bee-at the Impossible Lair! Players are free to tackle Capital B’s Impossible Lair at any time; however, they may find it too much of a challenge without the help of the Royal Beetallion. Free them by completing levels and they will add to your defences when taking on Capital B’s dastardly traps!

Pine

Pine is an open world action adventure simulation game. Set in the beautiful world of Albamare, you take on the role of Hue, a smart young adult who will have to explore, trade, and fight his way through a vibrant world filled with creatures much smarter than humans.

As you're looking for a new home for your tribe to settle in, you'll have to engage with the large-scale ecology of Albamare. Prepare by exploring, bartering, talking, crafting and fighting in six different biomes, with and against a diverse cast of species that will not simply help you.

Battle for the hive in two teams of four — one Queen, and three Workers.

Workers excel in adaptability, making them essential for game-winning objectives.

Choose whichever form helps the team pursue one of three different types of victories.

Chernobylite

Chernobylite is a new game from the creators of the critically-acclaimed Get Even.

It's a science-fiction survival horror experience, mixing the free exploration of its disturbing world with challenging combat, unique crafting, and non-linear storytelling. Play as a physicist, one of the Chernobyl Power Plant’s ex-employees, and investigate the mysterious disappearance of your beloved. Try to survive and reveal the contamination zone’s twisted secrets. Remember, the military presence is not your only concern.

You can spend as long as you need preparing, however, be aware that your story is still being written.

And on top of all this, supernatural dangers are arising around you in mysterious patterns. Each day brings new challenges with the ever-increasing severity of your current situation. Plan your strategy carefully if you want to survive.

Craft your gear and weapons to protect yourself from the hostile military personnel and supernatural threats lurking in the zone. Make use of the sophisticated tools at your disposal to aid you in your struggle while navigating the rough and contaminated environment.

Decide what happens in the world around you by making choices and finding, or avoiding, the truth.

Maintain your resolve and keep your wits about you – the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant is not what it once was. No one can foresee the horrors that may have befallen your beloved.



Autonauts

Travel the universe colonising uninhabited planets with the sole goal of setting worlds in motion through the power of automation.

Fresh from your spaceship you must harvest stick and stone and begin your colonisation efforts. Create rudimentary crafting items from blueprints and slowly build a number of workerbots to aid in your efforts. Teach and shape their artificial intelligence with a visual programming language, then instruct them to begin the formation of your colony. Marvel as a planet you’ve shaped becomes home to a civilisation of workerbots, happy to do your bidding!

Expand further with the creation of colonists; beings that require your assistance to survive. Push your workerbots further by introducing fishing, cooking, housing, and tailoring and help the colonists into a state of transcendence.



Felix The Reaper

Felix works at The Ministry of Death, and he's in love with Betty The Maiden from The Ministry of Life. He believes that going to the human world as a field reaper will enable him to one day meet her, so he's taken the job of making sure people die—and taught himself to dance, in order to impress the love of his (un)life.

Since Felix only moves in the shadows, he needs to tread carefully through this strange world. Luckily, reapers like Felix are able to turn the sun and shift the shadows, creating the paths necessary to navigate the land of the living. He does so to solve puzzles and make sure people die according to ministerial plans.

Each level unlocks a hardcore version of itself for the motivated ministerial go-getter. You can also collect skull achievements that further unlock bonus time trials for the most resourceful employees.



Ice Age Scrat's Nutty Adventure

Join Scrat’s quest for the Crystal Nuts

Ice Age’s favorite sabre-tooth squirrel, Scrat, is at it again in an all-new adventure! A mysterious mechanism in an ancient Scratazon Temple, has locked away his prized possession – and the only way to get it back is an epic quest to find four legendary Crystal Nuts, scattered across the land.

It’s up to you to guide Scrat through a hilarious 3D action-adventure, where you’ll face fierce prehistoric creatures, survive crazy calamities, and return the missing relics to their rightful home.

Get ready to visit a host of classic Ice Age locations, where you’ll jump from icicle to icicle, ride raging geysers, leap across burning lava, and reach for impossible heights, all with Scrat’s hilarious slapstick acrobatics. You might even spot some familiar Ice Age friends along the way!

Explore adventure-packed locations to discover treasures that unlock special powers and help Scrat to jump higher, grab heavier objects and find every last treasure.

It takes guts to get the Crystal Nuts! Prepare to deal with fierce wolves, insidious insects, giant prehistoric bosses, and – most perilous of all – Scrat’s never-ending bad luck!



Moons of Madness

A mysterious signal has been recorded coming from the red planet.

The message confounded Orochi scientists. Their analysts broke it down and determined it was of intelligent origin. Orochi management immediately concluded that the discovery was too sensitive for public knowledge and moved to keep it hidden. In secret, the corporation began construction of Invictus, a state-of-the-art Mars research outpost designed to identify the true nature of the message.

You are Shane Newehart, a technician stationed at the Invictus and your security clearance means you are completely unaware of the existence of the mysterious signal. Your job is simply to keep the lights on until the transport ship Cyrano arrives bringing with it a new team to take over your duties.

Soon you discover strange and unusual setbacks. Crucial systems are malfunctioning, the greenhouse is filled with a strange mist and the rest of your team has yet to return from their EVA mission.

Things are starting to fall apart.

You begin seeing and hearing things that aren’t there. Visions, hallucinations – or is that even what it is? Is this real… or are you slowly descending into madness?

With your only hope of rescue hundreds of thousands of miles away, you will be forced to explore the real-world fears of isolation and paranoia, enhanced with supernatural elements and cosmic horror. Terrifying visions and monstrous apparitions will make you question what is real and what is not as the very fabric of reality threatens to tear at the seams.

Navigate a functioning Mars base in a game that uses non-fiction elements to immerse players in a believable setting. Overcome obstacles using computers, electrical systems, rovers, solar panels and more, then go beyond the outpost and explore the darker side of Mars.

Moons of Madness draws upon the rich lore and mythology of Funcom’s Secret World Legends. Both games exist in the same thematic universe, but playing one is not a prerequisite to enjoy the other.



Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout

The concept of this title, the latest in the series to depict a new "Atelier" world, is "True-to-life youths that develop together, even if just a little bit".

It is the story of a girl and her friends who are about to become adults, discovering what is most important to them.

To depict the story of the main characters discovering things they've never seen before, we've created fields with natural shadows that allow you to feel the breath of the world. Graphics have been further enhanced, allowing for a world of daily-life and adventure to be depicted in a new way.





Phantasmagoria 2: A Puzzle of Flesh

Curtis Craig is a quiet young man. He has a steady job working for the WynTech Industries corporation. He has a lovely girlfriend, Jocilyn. He's been out of the mental hospital for exactly one year. All Curtis wants is to live a normal, happy life, but something seems to have other plans... Strange events, inexplicable and terrifying, begin to happen all around him. Curtis begins to doubt his own sanity, and the very fabric of reality.

Then... The murders begin...

New thread smell and all that.
Some cool releases this month. I'm really curious to see how Pine is going to work out.
Atelier ports are usually messed up in some way, right? Still curious about those games because I never tried any.
I still need to check out Mistover demo to see what that's all about too.

I hope Atelier Ryza is as good as that image suggests.

Also, I had no idea Chernobylite is already coming to early access this month. Get Even was pretty good so I'm looking forward for this one.

If Valve does not have a banner for Atelier when it releases I will riot, I mean Code Vein technically has had 2 banners. They got one the "day" it come out (yes it released on the 26th but it did not get the banner until the 27th when it was officially out and selling very well), so there was a THQ publisher sale banner which was then replaced with the Code Vein one, then the following few days the THQ banner would go up and finally the Code Vein one is back up on Steam again.


What other games are out on October 29th?

Tomorrow is when the Destiny 2 banner goes up
Thigh Strikes Again - A Digimon Story


I'm saying this again since the last month thread is now closed.

Sadly... I did not finish any games this month....

I forget who mentioned it but I think some one was saying how there may be the chance that the new Atelier game hit 1 million copies sold? But isn't the thing that while thighs are what bring people in, that the actual combat and all of that might not bring in 1 million people into the game? Do all of these new people even know what the game is about? I have a vague idea of what the games are about and I plan to play it.

Code Vein has crashed on me, there seems to be some weird animation issues with the game, in MHW if you are very far away from monsters they move like a slide show and the same happens in Code Vein, but the thing is that some move like they are in a slide show but the Lost next to them moves normally. I kept thinking that Code Vein had a more linear map but it does not, I kept thinking when I get to this one point it will be the end of the line and I will be sent back the the base to do more story related stuff, but that was not the case. God Eater did have some interesting backdrops but the actual maps themselves were not that great and that does carry over to Code Vein.
Gomen Bandai chan but when tomorrow comes well.....




Or has anyone found any other solutions?

Steam Client Beta - September 30, 2019

The Steam Client Beta has been updated with the following changes:

Note: This update includes a number of fixes for making sure users can keep GPU web view acceleration on without negatively impacting GPU usage when Steam is not in use or a game is running. GPU web view acceleration is important for good new library and friends ui performance. If you have previously disabled GPU acceleration this update would be a good time to try it again.

General:

  • Improvements to prevent new library doing any animation/GPU work when the library window is covered by other windows or games regardless of GPU acceleration settings
  • Some library animations now pause when the library window does not have keyboard focus or mouse hover, even if the window may be visible
  • Fixed a steamwebhelper memory leak impacting Mac and Linux users and some Windows overlay browser usage if GPU acceleration for web views was on
  • Fixed web view GPU acceleration to default on for Mac and Linux
  • Fixed library failing to load for some users with very large numbers of non-Steam games

Linux:
  • Steam Linux Runtime updated (0.20190927.0):
    • Disable obsolete SSLv3 in libcurl, fixing a libcurl problem on Arch
    • Disable LDAP in libcurl
    • Update SDL2

Great OP, as always lash.

God these last months are even worse in terms of new games coming out. It doesn't help that I am playing these long RPGs, were it takes forever to complete them.
