I was a Kickstarter backer for this game, and played it a while back. Can recommend.

Heroic Games Launcher has a bug fix release AND a huge new overhaul Beta

Quoting: fearnflavioHeroic is probably counting some DLC as well.

Sounds plausible.

Quoting: fearnflavioif they overlap we show two different cards since we treat as two different games now.
For instance, I have Absolute drift on GOG and on Epic

Ah, thanks for that example - I have the same.

Quoting: dibzHe probably suggested it because there's a working open-source client (nile) compatible with Amazon Games Store already, so Heroic just needs to add support for it.

I assume nile is this one:

Which means that "Amazon Games Store" is this:

And not this:

I guess "Prime Gaming" is what became of the Twitch store when Amazon bought them. I did claim some of the free "Twitch Prime" games back before I canceled my Amazon Prime account, but never tried to use the required client to download them; I'm guessing you need to have an active membership to get anything you claimed previously.

It just keeps getting better! I was trying to figure out if I had any overlap in my libraries (i.e. the same game in both EGS and GOG), but was confounded by the counts: All Games (572), Epic Games (293), GOG (278). Somehow the total is more than the sum of the individual counts?

Crazy that EGS has given away so many games - I have never given them any money. Anyway, I was curious if, in the case of overlap, a game would be listed with dual store badges, or would get an entry for each store.

What happens when the host creature gets an itch, and rolls over to scratch all those pesky parasites on its back?

Techland ends support for Dying Light, 7 years after release
14 June 2022 at 4:48 am UTC

Quoting: LinasI was wondering if it makes sense to buy all those weapon / costume bundles? Do they make any difference in the single player campaign?

I was wondering the same; Hellraid looks cool, but the reviews on it are still not great. The rest of the Definitive Edition DLC all seems to be cosmetic stuff, as StalePopcorn mentioned. I don't mind picking those up super cheap, but even at an 84% discount that still adds up to more than I want to pay for skins.

System Shock remake gets a brand new flashy trailer

Quoting: AnzaDeus Ex though quite soon took immersive sims to whole another level.
Luckily it wasn't last of its kind, but there's not too many immersive sims out there.

Can you recommend some other games that are similar?

Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance II arrives on Steam 'this Summer' with Linux support
11 June 2022 at 7:54 pm UTC

Quoting: CyrilSo I start to hope a bit we can see this dev to port more games in the future on Linux/macOS.

Looks like it's the same group that remastered the original Wasteland game, and the Bard's Tale ARPG:

Not sure why they only take credit for the console ports of Dark Alliance on their website, when Steam says it was them.
