Game burnout.........I haven't played a new game since May.
Not really an issue of burnout for me though, just how I've always played games. Extremely selective on single player games, MP the rest of the time.

Looking forward to playing Dishonored when it gets the price drop or as a gift for Christmas. And I MIGHT play 1-2 backlog game between now and this time next year. Till then I'm waiting for Wasteland 2

started playing Mark of the Ninja tonight. pretty cool game. some really good stealth in that ...especially impressive for a side scrolling/ 2d game.

i'll complete that and The Walking Dead soon i guess. i'm about to start episode 4 in TWD ...so i'm getting close to the finale.

maybe after those 2, i'll give Assassin's Creed 3 a try.

Yeah, Mark of the Ninja is a really fun game and they do the whole 2D stealth thing perfectly. That game wins my indie game of the year. It is quite a but longer than Klei's Shank games in case you're wondering though. I believe I have 2 missions left and have 5 hours in the game. Definitely recommend that game though, it's a ton of fun and tries something different.

Has anyone played Don't Starve? I'm having fun with it, I love the aesthetics reminds of Tim Burton before he sucked.

Crusader Kings 2 is 75% off just now on Steam. Just bought the proper expansions.

I've seen a few videos of it, definitely caught my attention. Might pick it up. Too bad they aren't going to be adding any sort of co-op to the game.

I think Jade Empire is the best thing Bioware has done post Baldur's Gate 2, tied with Neverwinter Nights I think.

Those aren't, they're level 5 items that you stop using after a very short while

The rest is i'd say, especially the ones that came out with the season pass

Yeah Beben, I watched Totalbiscuit's "review" and that **** was bad.

Steam should be pretty embarrassed.

Who is buying it? That's what I want to know. I think it's pretty well known throughout the video game community what a joke this game is. Valve should have known better then to allow this trash on Steam.

Turns out the douchenozzle that gave the interview, who's basically in charge of making that atrocity they dare calling a game is the very same guy that made...

I hope Valve actually does something to help with damage control in the way of kicking the game off Steam.

For the Big Rig game, look at this:



Oh yeah, not only was the respawn time of 1 hour absolutely insane (and the ability to pay for a early/instant respawn with actual money to pay the devs with), but they bumped it up to FOUR HOURS for respawn time...

What sniveling little *****. These guys should have no jobs, no money and have a sledge hammer taken to their balls for the trouble they caused people.

The fact that it was allowed on steam makes me very disappointed in valve, they flat out lied about the features of the game on the page.

The worst part is a lot of people are buying it thinking its the Day Z stand alone =\.

I still have a feeling Hammerpoint played Valve as well, but not fully. Seriously, this company should be taken to the FTC, BBB and whatever else so they are dead and gone and no one can get their game ever again.

Just got a tweet from Kotaku saying that Steam pulled the game off their store, pretty interesting move.

Yup, Its been pulled.

Valve's statement:

“From time to time a mistake can be made and one was made by prematurely issuing a copy of War Z for sale via Steam. We apologize for this and have temporary removed the sale offering of the title until we have time to work with the developer and have confidence in a new build. Those who purchase the game and wish to continue playing it via Steam may do so. Those who purchased the title via Steam and are unhappy with what they received may seek a refund by creating a ticket at our support site here.

Again, we apologize any inconvenience.”
