    WRATH: Aeon of Ruin (a new game from 3D Realms)

    That's the first thing I wrote before people wanted to change my mind. And I even mentioned that I don't want to discuss my preference. This is the last time I respond to anything related to that topic. It's really boring. I will definitely not buy the game if that “mechanic” is retained. To reiterate it a final time: That's the first thing that I wrote and nothing will change my mind. It's such a shame. I was really happy when I first noticed the project until I noticed the non-saving part. Obviously I should not have said anything because I have to defend my opinion over and over again. I seriously regret writing something in the first place.

    That's not comparable and you know it. It's a finite resource that's dependant on things outside of the game. Maybe it's comparable if you live in a vacuum without friends and family – otherwise it's not.

    TV Tropes Addiction

    I get bursts where I keep reading tropes for several hours and then I don't visit the site for many months.

    Ion Fury, a new Build Engine game out now.

    It's the Hexen/Quake 2 problem all over again. In theory I like the hub system. In practice I don't.

    WRATH: Aeon of Ruin (a new game from 3D Realms)

    It sounds like someone, i.e. you, doesn't have s shred of self control so that someone needs external control to be kept from abusing a mechanism. There are so many games with bad save mechanisms (e.g. that Warhammer one with checkpoint saves that have unskipable cutscenes after a save) that I will never buy such a game again. I like to be able to choose if and when I save a game. That can be never if I set myself that challenge (and I don't need achievements for that either) or more often when something has stupid difficulty spikes or other bad design choices (like sudden quicktime events).

    WRATH: Aeon of Ruin (a new game from 3D Realms)

    It's not a feature. And I will not. I've wasted money on games that have that bug by design.

    WRATH: Aeon of Ruin (a new game from 3D Realms)

    That's a good workaround, although it feels like cheating. Even if they blocked it, it will be open source, so if everything fails, it could be repaired that way.

    WRATH: Aeon of Ruin (a new game from 3D Realms)

    I don't want to start another saving/savescumming discussion, but I don't like the Soul Tether concept at all – I even think I will not buy the game without a normal save system.

    ion fury is out

    I haven't seen anything that would make me call anyone involved a scumbag. The thing is – people are entitled to opinions that differ from your own. And the language barrier has to be considered as well and that includes both English as second/third language and even differences due to different upbringing. Text based communication lacks many important channels like voice modulation, facial expressions and gesture. All of those things make it very easy to misinterpret something.

    Can anyone explain in a short paragraph what the problem is?

    What Video Game Are You Currently Playing?

    I don't think anything other than replacing the microswitch will work. I've had the problem several times and I've ordered a small bag of them.

    Doom 1-3 on the Switch?!

    Apparently all the big brick and mortar stores. I consider that kind of (self) censorship to be highly problematic, because it can be interpreted in several ways: 1) conforming to a law that probably does not apply to it, 2) trying to hide the Nazi past, 3) prevent Nazis from being shown in a negative way.

    Doom 1-3 on the Switch?!

    Or: “We thought we could get away with it, but that was a mistake.”
  14. No, I want to say that I – having never seen a single episode of that series – associate the name with horses, while I didn't associate the previous name with the band.
  15. I'm not convinced that the name is a good idea: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fury_(TV_series)
