Is ‘Less Piracy’ even an issue any more? I just bought Watch Dogs 2 this weekend when it was on sale for $15, it came out last year and that Gold version was $99. Prices drop so fast and quick on these games there is really no reason to pirate them anymore…. plus with some many of these games having those anti-cheat tools or need to connect to a server it almost makes pirating not worth the effort or risk any more.
But I definitely agree with 2,3.
Agreed Pinback…. we will only benefit from the competition and maybe the summer and winter steam sales will just be huge battle grounds for Steam and Epic to get customer sales.
I stopped buying early access about 2 years ago now, yeah I through them in my list wish so I don’t forget about them but I no longer buy them. Both Star Citizen and another game 7 Days to Die they have been in early access for 5+ years it is crazy and I hate playing unfinished games.
But it is amazing all of the youtube content being created over Epic Store 🙂
I have worried about that myself at times, I am approaching 600 games on Steam and I wonder if steam ever went away what would happen to all of that money I have spent on games?
I know that just plan time will make my games irrelevant as operating systems and hardware changes.
Geraldine you do have a point here, because I lost a few games as well when Desura closed. Valve would have to do something for their customers (which is close to 250 million users) if that scenario ever happened. But I doubt highly this would happen, I think they would be sued into bankruptcy if they ever tried to close down without allowing customers access to their games.
I think if steam ever closed or whichever service I had the bulk of my games in and I lost them all I think I wouldn’t game anymore or I would only play MMOs or I would switch to strictly console. But I doubt highly that day will come while I am alive 🙂
Especially since my kids ask me day what gonna happen to all of your games if you die 🙂 hahaha soon we are going to have to pass down game libraries
Can’t wait to learn more about the story and the gameplay in SPG3 and how it differs from SPG1&2…. hope that reveal on gameplay comes soon 🙂
Damn Epic, what is Steam doing? I cannot blame Obsidian they are just trying to get paid and it will release a year later on all other store types.
I personally like all my games in one spot and I don’t intend on changing for 1-2 games, especially since they will all be on steam eventually. I guess I will just wait, I have over 500 games on steam that I need to play any way 🙂
Why devs not just release it everywhere…. and let the people choose where they buy it. This strong arm tactics that Epic is doing is kinda low in my opinion and I hope Valve has a answer for this stuff or Epic will continue to own the big titles.
I was looking forward to The Outer Worlds, but now I will just wait…. Which might be the better decision any way, when it hits steam it will be all patched up and ready to play.
I been looking around into Stadia here is some facts and some thoughts I have:
- It will not cost us a thing, will probably be a plugin to our chrome browser or an app on our TV/Phone/Tablet.
- You would need to have a minimum of a 20-30mbps connection (my guess you would need to have a good home network setup as well)
- Google will have a store, to probably buy games from…. will they allow this service to hook into Steam and services like that don’t know?
- With all this Epic and Steam drama, now you are adding Google which probably has the biggest pockets on the planet and could buy any dev to exclusively put their game on their service….
- Companies are trying to remove ownership of games in my opinion…. the majority of PC game sales are digital its only a matter of time before a company can just remove access to a game that you bought
- Offline play impossible with your game?
You are right D.C. in your worries, even though I love seeing new tech. I always know there is going to be a cost to that tech and we aren’t just talking about money here. I mean when you think about it on a grand scale, Google will own all of the content we do online for the most part. They would be the largest single monopoly out there. Think about what control they would have over society/governments….?
I guess in the end we were always just Lemmings 😉
Looks like BSG: Deadlock has a new piece of DLC, ‘Sin and Sacrifice’
np and welcome, we have chatted with many LGM Games devs over the years. And thanks for making some great scifi games 🙂
Looking forward to that new gameplay reveal video that will show off more and I am sure we will have more questions then.
Oh I definitely agree about bandwidth and hardware that would be needed to accomplish this. What ever year google would have to replace thousands or millions of top tier gfx cards…. haha that would be so expensive. Yeah google could sell the older cards to gamers and they would buy them up at a discount.
For instance I go to the philippines 1-2x a year and the bandwidth there on a good day in Manila is 10mbps. This whole country wouldn’t be able to use this technology unless major infrastructure changes happen… and there is over 121 Million people there.
I don’t think even the USA infrastructure could support this personally. I live in upstate NH and I have a decent connection over 100mbps, but when you have several people in the house maybe gaming or watching netflix that would affect your experience in my opinion.
I will be watching this closely this year for more info and reviews on how this actually runs.
Will be nice to see that next trailer from LGM has. But with them focusing on SP elements and story I think will pay off. I want to care about timeline and story and what my actions and non-actions to have an impact on the timeline.
I absolutely loved Mass Effects way they built stories/quests around your crew, you cared for them and didn’t want them dying…. So implementing anything like that to the game would only be a plus.
I would need to see more reviews or feedback on this one before getting this, yeah the more recent trailer videos look good. But the recent feedback on steam is negative for the most part. But by next week we should start seeing some reviews of the released game.
Looks like a nice time waster and it comes with a level editor to have unlimited playability.
Currently on sale on Steam for $5 until 3/27, I might pick this up if I remember too…. so many games so little time.
Dune 2000 was good as well. There is plenty of places to download Dune/Dune 2. I haven’t put them on the site because I am still unsure if I can host them.
I know right. People generally love Star Wars games, especially the older LucasFilm ones. If they just remake them in current gfx engines and fix a few bugs they can resell them all over again and people will buy them. I think the effort is worth the investment.
Just seeing this demo shows what can be done….
