This is all Bat Rats

Don't let the fact that there's a sale going on fool you

Are you kidding? Bad Rats is only 51% off. I'm not spending my hard earned 49 cents on Bad Rats. Not when there are games that really deserve our money, like Temper Tantrum.

Looking at the Font that Temper Tantrum uses, I feel like i'm about to get some horrible flashbacks to the PS1-Era.

I feel pretty good about not having any of those games in my STEAM library.

I don't know if you're being sarcastic or what. I know this has been a touchy topic on the forum in the last week and I have no interest in all that drama. I just personally feel they will release it in the West eventually and it would sell enough to cover their costs and make them a profit.

Why eventually? It's already going to be localized in English when it originally releases. Why would they leave money on the table?

Why can't I go to Vegas and bet on things that don't have a finite end? ]:

Urgh, who the f*ck thought Nightmare mode was better than the regular campaign in Blops 3??
The balance here is even worse! It's sooo easy to get swarmed by zombies and stun locked and if you're playing solo that's basically you fucked. I had to reduce to easy D:

So this whole thing has been a waste of my time >_<

EDIT: Fuck it, it's rare for me to give up on a game, but fuck this mode hard.

Thanks! That's one of the things that confused me after reading about the series. Somany people said that Rome 2 has gotten much better after patches and dlc. But no one said anything about the new state of the game compared to Shogun 2.
Which era do you prefer? That's usually the biggest selling point for what game you want to pick up if you've never tried the series before. From Napoleon onwards, the underlying mechanics have kind of not gone through too huge of changes. Although Empire probably has the biggest map of all the games, so that's also an option, it's just that there's a significant amount of mechanics changes from Empire to Napoleon.

Shogun 2 vanilla is Sengoku Jidai - so swords/arrows/spears/horses. Very focused map, very tightly balanced cause the bulk of the unit roster is very much the same for all the factions.

Fall of the Samurai is very late 19th century warfare - men in bright uniforms lining up to shoot each other with guns, artillery, ironclads and all that; Empire/Napoleon are early 17th to 19th which the difference isn't too huge or unless you prefer Empire's super large map (eastern seaboard to central america, continental europe and then some and indian subcontinent) or you prefer that you have white people kill each other in your video games.

Rome 2 covers a lot of ground in classical 'peak' Roman history and even a few centuries before but it's mostly standard formation warfare, so back to swords/spears/arrows/horses mostly, but it has a lot of faction variety and the map is pretty huge and covers quite a bit of ground, has a few campaigns that cover a lot of different periods with smaller, focused maps.

Attila is similar to Rome 2 but it's less an empire-building 'paint-the-map' expanding grand strategy game and more of a survival strategy game (or at least a good part of it is) set in the Fall of Western Rome era.

For anyone interested in what is going on for the game awards, it seems the "world premieres" so far include:

- Far Cry Primal
- Quantum Break
- Mortal Komat X [probably new character]
- Oculus "Special Announcement"
- 6 other things

The first 4 things don't really fill me with much excitement, or care at all



Same. Was pretty sure that sort of stuff wasn't allowed

Well, I'm just filled with excitement >_>

Greetings to the great people of SteamGAF.
As is tradition, the conclusion of Steam Sales means Crom blesses thee with the chance of winning at least one of a group of much desired magik empowered entertainment venues.

Test your luck and laugh at the Four Winds whether you win or not.
It brings Crom much joy.


Crom will have his feeble servant, the gnat whose task of offering you such joy, apologize for neglecting to provide the 2nd chapter of TITS. Crom is aware of how desired it is, for even He can appreciate a plump chest.

Wow, thanks.

Thanks for the great giveaway tizoc!

Of course I and a massive amount of people will go for DQH here.

Then hopefully they'll let me win Kero Blaster :p

Mmh, would GTA V benefits from being installed on a SSD ?
After some time with windirstat I saved a good 50go of disk space (astounding the fucking shit some softwares leaves behind)... but there is Just Cause 3 releasing and I don't think I can get 100+ Go of space even with a good hard look at my hd junk.

Wasnt the question "A super hero movie without the "the" and without an "s"

Super Hero Movie = The Incredibles
without the = Incredibles
without the s = Incredible
...
So was the original apparently. Sounds like you would have to have played the game before to win, never saw a flan say incredible, unless they do in XIII and I haven't gotten that far.

Every game with loading screens benefits from being on an SSD.

Just finished the Never Alone DLC Foxtales

The controls are even worse than in the main game

MGS fans acting like they're going through the struggle waiting for a "Chapter 3".
Where have you been as I wait for Snake in Smash? The far more important matter.

Yesh, the Target web site is just getting thrashed. You'd think by now online retailers would understand how to handle high traffic. But of course we see what happens to Steam every sale too.
