I say this every time they announce a new DLC, but they really need to release Victoria III and maybe cool it a bit with the DLC. I'm not really massively bothered by the huge amounts of DLC they release, especially considering I never buy the aesthetic addons, I usually buy them on sale and some of the expansions add a lot and keep me coming back to these games years later, but just looking on Steam it's pretty obvious that they're pissing off a huge part of their fanbase and they can't really ignore it anymore at this point.

Their great games are now getting some awful reviews for this reason alone and the daunting amounts of DLC are probably putting off new players far more than the steep learning curve has in the past. If I were a new player and was considering CK2 but saw 29 pieces of DLC, I would ignore the game completely since it gives the impression that you need to pay $300 to get the full experience. I know this isn't actually the case, but try telling that to someone who is seeing the game for the first time.

I really hope they release a new iteration of my favorite game in their roster and that it meets the quality of CK2 and EU4. Stellaris really showed they can still develop fantastic games, I can't comment much on HOI since I never liked the series. I think that would restore a lot of good faith with the community.

Anyway, the EU4 DLC looks like it adds a lot.

This is good news, because the original game was excellent but had a number of graphical quirks. I might replay it if I have the time, I remember enjoying it a lot.

It's possible 'Two Point Hospital' from Two Point Studios & SEGA may be coming to Linux

When this is eventually released, I hope someone makes a mod to replace the music for the original TH soundtrack. Possibly the best soundtrack in gaming history.

Valve has added 11 new currencies to the Steam Store
14 November 2017 at 8:43 pm UTC

I did notice when looking at Steam through the browser, games are now considerably cheaper. They were always displayed in Argentine Pesos, but it seems it's no longer a direct conversion, but they have country-specific pricing. I pay with everything in GBP and my Steam account is displayed in that currency though, so it's of little significance to me, but it's cool that people in Argentina will be able to buy games for less.

Comandante ÑoñardoThey removed Paypal in Argentina, by the way...
but that is not a problem because they added local payments systems like Rapipago and pagofacil, so people without credit or debit cards now can buy games and Steam wallet credit just using cash.

It would really be easier if everyone in Argentina just got a bank account and debit card like in every other country on earth instead of always making everything needlessly complicated, just saying. I can't see why anyone would want to physically go to Rapipago every time they want to pay their electricity bill or buy a game on Steam, it's absolutely insane and time consuming. The only explanations I've ever gotten for not having a bank account has been "blah blah, 2001, blah blah, they're all crooks, blah blah" - as if it's the only country on earth which has had recessions and this therefore justifies the hysteria and necessitates having all your money in cash under your bed.

Looks good! Hopefully the release of this will mean they'll get to work on BoUT 3 as well .

What games do you want ported to Linux? Feral Interactive want to know again
11 August 2017 at 10:42 pm UTC

FF7 Remake, and other Square Enix titles since they are already working together. Some more of the back catalog would be nice. That seems like the most realistic request.

Things like Fallout and Elder Scrolls seem unrealistic, since that would mean having some sort of deal with Bethesda. In business terms though, It makes sense to do more deals with developers and publishers like they have going with Square. Who knows, some day Feral could strike deals with Rockstar or Bethesda to port future titles to Linux and OSX.

To be honest, I don't get why more companies don't do those kinds of deals. It means their products get onto more platforms, and Feral takes care of the work.

Stardew Valley to get multiplayer beta by the end of the year
6 August 2017 at 9:01 pm UTC

I don't get why there's such a huge demographic that demands multiplayer in games like this which are clearly supposed to be a single player experience, but then again, I'm an antisocial hermit who hates humans.

Sunless Skies, the successor to Sunless Sea should see day-1 Linux support for Early Access

I really liked the old game. The only criticism was the mix of how slow it was with difficulty. Had no problem with it being a hard game or with the permadeath, but combined with its pace, it just meant it took ages to get back to where you were and it became a bit of a grind. I sunk a lot of hours into it, and never reached the end of the game. I hope they add some more balance to it, but I'll pick it up either way when it's out of EA.

Total War: WARHAMMER II announced and it sounds like it may see Linux support

high elves! I'll get this for sure, I enjoyed the previous game despite the lack of high elves.

I hope they flesh the game out a bit more with more maps and stuff as well, the old one was decent but lacked replay value.
