    I'm not normally phased by shit in games, but the premise of that game really bothers me.

    The fact that its a basic asset flip, and that the women take no action in the trailer has something to do with that.

    The fact that the opposition exists just as standing targets and have no agency (shit, least baddies can fight back in other flips) is scratching at some brain cells.

    The fact that its distilling complex geopolitics into waifu bullseyes is clotheslining some other cells.

    Finally, there's the idea that someone could be doing this exact idea better and more ethically but asset flips like this drown them out.

    I was going to call you guys a bunch of hypocrites since no one would care if the enemies were vaguely brown men from [insert random middle eastern country here], but then I watched the video on the store page and now I guess I agree with you.

    I guess it's still kind of weird getting too worked up over it since the most popular example of a successful game in the sniping genre is basically an extremely gory and gratuitous "wait patiently so you can line up the perfect line of sight to shoot a man and watch a bullet tear through his ballsack in slow motion" simulator.

    It's kind of weird to get too worked up over it because almost no-one will buy it, and the ultra-heavily involved Steam users like us are the only people who are even aware it exists. You know those articles/social media posts you see occasionally about some restaurant or other that supposedly sells some food coated in gold leaf or similar for an absurd price? You know how no-one actually ever orders or eats those things, and they basically don't actually exist except as publicity stunts to garner attention, including from all the people who post the articles on their twitter while screaming about guillotines? This is sort of the same principle.

    Fanatical's Black Friday sale started earlier this week. I haven't dug into it, but I suspect there's some solid values there.

    Also with this round of sales, look for perennial favorites to be on sale if you don't have them:

    Hellblade
    Any Supergiant game (Hades should be on Steam...soon?)
    Hollow Knight
    Homeworld or Stellaris
    XCOM (and XCOM 2 -- but you should play Battletech instead!)
    DOOM
    Dead Cells
    The Surge and The Surge 2

    Pure and simple, this is an early alpha taking away attention from better games

    Yikes. Good luck!

    Just a gentle reminder that Autumn Sale happens on November 26th to December 3rd and is prime time to #GiftPixie3k! I also think it's 99.9% unlikely to happen, but I'd like to get at least 10% off Jedi Fallen Order.

    If you go to Fanatical and use the coupon BLACK10 you can get it for $70.

    However GMG comes with 5 free games, don't know on quality though.

    Edit: Seems the 5 free games is linked to the Intel site so it could be good?

    Edit 2:

    If anyone has a craving to try it out, it is in the Microsoft PC Gamepass right now. It did not grab me as much as the original, but certainly worth trying.

    SoD2 has greatly improved since launch, the devs actually listened to players and implemented features that were asked for along with lots of quality of life fixes. The co-op has always been a bit wonky, as you are "tethered" to the host, so you can only go a little ways off before being snapped back.

    Took me ten freaking minutes to figure out how to open a locked door in a temple (CROSSCODE). It's the only game I know of where having a key and walking up to a door (and/or pressing the use key) doesn't unlock it

    No, you need to stand on the unlock panel near the door, then shoot the door. The game does an excellent job at tutorials in a myriad of it's detailed systems but somehow this one slipped through the cracks. What a joke!

    There is nothing wrong with only playing one game on Steam.
    If that one game is the “add more games to your library and instead of finishing the ones you already own” then yes it’s ok to play one game 😉
