FTL devs return with Into the Breach, turn-based kaiju defence with giant robotsFTL devs return with Into the Breach, turn-based kaiju defence with giant robots
Anakhoresis Avatar

I was going to say I wish they had ported FTL to Android, but then I realized it would probably be an utter pain to try and get move the little guys around on my phone screen...


Into the Breach (Pacific Rim?) doesn't look so far to have micromanagement like that but the website only says Steam.

Yeah I can't imagine playing on a phone, but FTL works beautifully on tablets.

That should be interesting. I hope it also gets ported to mobile. FTL just went on sale for iOS for the first time in 2 years and the biggest discount yet, so hopefully this means they haven't totally forgotten about the platform, and might launch for it at a later dateReply

This is the first time I've taken the plunge with humble bundle's monthly. Even if all the rest are either shit or I already own them, just 12 dollars for Xcom 2 is a very good deal. I just finished Xcom 1 less than 2 weeks ago, so this bundle came at a very good time for me.Reply

I've been doing it since it started and some months are mostly golden, some aren't. It's introduced me to games I've loved that I wouldn't have looked at twice in the steam store.

I deal with this by

1. savescumming

2. play all tacticool

3. always expect the worst

buy xcom 2 for $12 it's really worth it, the dlc is worthless, probably

Get xcom 2, play it for the tutorial it is. Install Long War 2, and sit back for the 200 hour ride it takes you on.

Buy any Nvidia 10-series GPU and get For Honor or Ghost Recon Wildlands freeBuy any Nvidia 10-series GPU and get For Honor or Ghost Recon Wildlands free

You're getting a game for free and you complain that they should have a wider selection?

Take what you're given and stop complaining that you're 'stuck with the game'...

MrJinxed Avatar

I don't know if that's entirely fair to say. They are marketing these things to consumers to try to lure them to buy their GPU over the competitors, so you're not just getting a game or two for free with your purchase, it's very much part of the package, so "take what you're given" is not entirely accurate.


Some people have been selling off the game for a few extra dollars to recoup from the pricey GPU purchase. I don't think that's entirely out of line. Maybe it is, I don't know, but I don't mind people doing that.


I have no idea what kind of selection they offer these days either, as it has been a few years since I bought my GPU.

I fkn love gog when they do things like this. It's one of the best games in the genre. I'm definitely getting this. I had given my physical copy away a couple of years ago, and was kinda sad about it as I really wanted to replay it. This is going to be absolutely glorious.

Man, that's awesome. I really need to finally play this game. It has been sitting in my library for far too long.

This is great. I don't care for him or the channels like his, but this will give the smaller channels a chance to grow. There are many really great content creators out there, and this might be the perfect chance for people to go look for other things.

In reality they'll just migrate to 1-3 other channels, and they'll probably grow by a large margin, but one can hope.Reply

He's just deleting his channel. He said he isn't done with YouTube. This is probably all a marketing sham and knew exactly what he was doing before announcing this.

Non-accredited Fig investors can now purchase equity in games on the crowd-funding platformNon-accredited Fig investors can now purchase equity in games on the crowd-funding platform
MrJinxed Avatar
Can we please get some proper reporting on the scam that is fig, instead of just posting whatever press release they feed the media?

Maybe one day.Reply
Burningpet Avatar

I did the math. Wasteland 3 will have to sell 2.5 million copies before the investors could start seeing return on their investment. Wasteland 2 sold 600K units, i believe a 1/3 of which under 50% discount.


This is an utterly bad investment.

And so we get yet another postponement. And not even by a little bit. And what's the reason exactly this time ? "More features". Which? Sounds like a lot of drivel, and yet another postponement for the game that might never see the light of day.Reply

They know the whales are in need of milking so they're putting off the release until that need has been sated.
