Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire gets a release date

valczirI'm still debating in my head whether or not I liked Tyranny better than Pillars. Either way, those two games are my favorites in nearly a decade. I'd definitely agree that Pillars had its issues, but every single game on the planet does - one's favorite games are always just games that have issues one can stomach.

I'm really excited for Pillars II. I'm hoping for some of Tyranny's features to seep into it.
I finished Pillars of Eternity + White March part I and II in 192 hours according to Steam. In Tyranny I have 9.5 hours so far and I can't start enjoying it. I don't know why to be honest, but I love PoE, but Tyranny? Not so much...
Give it some more time. I had a hard time liking it in the beginning too, but after about 10 hours I started to get it and enjoy it.
There's a lot of information to assimilate in the beginning, and having to be cruel and evil can be off-putting as well. You can however be relatively benign in most circumstances and not hardcore evil.

In my opinion they are both equally good, just different. Pillars has in my opinion the best combat mechanics, and Tyranny the best world and story.
I'll definitely buy Pillars of Eternity II when it's out and the first few reviews have trickled in. I got burned on Tides of Numenera and will never preorder a game again.

I've been wanting to play this for a long time, but there's never been any good sale on it. At least now I can play part of the game for free! :-)

To the Moon sequel 'Finding Paradise' will launch in December with Linux support

stabbyjonesI just want to say how truly terrible this game is.

Rpgmaker walking simulator with a hideously boring story.

Are you referring to To The Moon? In that case I'm glad I'm not the only one who didn't like it!

I played it a few years ago and I found the gameplay to be absolutely abhorrent and nonsensical, and the story to be rather bland. It's not that I can't get emotional, but the story just didn't resonate with me. I won't spoil it here, everyone should have the chance to experience the game and judge it for themselves, but there was nothing in it that I found particular intelligent or touching. Sure, it was a little touching, it's not that I didn't feel a thing, but the ending in particular was just bad.

I'd say, play it and judge for yourself. My opinion is obviously in the minority, most seem to love the game.

According to netmarketshare Linux hit 6.91% market share last month, higher than Mac

I bought a Chromebook half a year ago and run Linux on it from a microSD card. The plan was to install Linux permanently but I actually like using ChromeOS for the occasional web surfing and youtubing. Still, I use my Linux install for all serious stuff (developing etc).

About the stats: I wish they were true!

Forgot to add: I'm in Europe and bought the Chromebook from Amazon.

Fugl – Meditative bird flying game should hopefully see Linux support

LinasFugl means a Bird, in case you were wondering...
In Danish and German at least
In German it's Vogel. I'm pretty sure this is a Danish game, at least Scandinavian. Or they just borrowed the name ;-)

Paradox has acquired Triumph Studios, makers of Age of Wonders & Overlord

Bad news in my opinion. I hate Paradox' DLC policy and would hate for current and future Age of Wonders games to get the same treatment. Age of Wonders 3 is already feature complete and was even before the 2 DLCs. In my opinion, Paradox games are more akin to early access games on release.

I don't want to start a flame war here, just stating my opinion.

The Steam Summer Sale is now live, lots of goodies
23 June 2017 at 10:37 am UTC

morbiusCould this be the first Steam summer sale where I don't buy anything? Few games that I had my eye on (Firewatch, Knee Deep, Cradle...) are still pricey.
Same here, the few games I might have been interested in are still too pricey, and I already have so many games I've yet to play. Plus, it's summer and I hardly play anything anyway!

Planescape: Torment: Enhanced Edition officially announced with Linux support
29 March 2017 at 9:00 am UTC

I'll certainly pick it up (as long as there are no 'Beamdog story enhancements and NPcs' in it). I've played the original, but it's a few years ago since last time.
Still, I'll have to finish Tides of Numenera first...

It looks like we may be getting a Planescape Torment Enhanced Edition

EikeI never even had heard about Planescape: Torment until 2016. I wonder if I should fetch it. Heard great things.
If you like cRPGs, then absolutely yes. It has a great story, though the GUI could have been better.

I just hope Beamdog keep themselves to making the enhanced addition without having to add extra NPCs and stuff. In general, their stuff is absolutely awful, as seen in the 2 enhanced BG games they made.

I think Neera in BG1:EE is awesome ^___^

Neera is OK, it's the other NPCs I hate. Some of them are really cringe-worthy...
