Won't allow you to purchase the Bundle if you already own ICEY by the way.
Which kind of sucks, I would have taken the Steam Link

They don't just offer the transaction service though, they offer their userbase and the ability to advertise your product towards them.
The larger publishers could easily distribute their software themselves, and a couple of them do.
The problem of having to advertise wouldn't diminish if Steam took a smaller cut and I somewhat doubt that the games would get cheaper, too.

Diablo 3 patch 2.6.1 makes big changes to NecromancersDiablo 3 patch 2.6.1 makes big changes to Necromancers
「Spaerk」 Avatar
I wouldn't really call those "big" changes. Probably won't change anything about the ranking of the different Necromancer builds. The biggest change seems to be the one to Dayntee's, which will allow you to run with something else than DecrepifyReply

Indeed, the changes seem minor/cosmetic, rather than significant in regards to gameplay. If I understand correctly, the skellies won't die (as much?) and won't raise continuously to recover their numbers.

I think it would have been worth mentioning that the channel in question is streaming 24/7.
Obviously the established media will try to use this to cement their monopoly and push newcomers out if it isn't revised, but it's not like this was some random dude who only streams every now and then.

TW:40K with Necrons would have definitely been great, but the Lizardmen are neat, too.

Especially the feature two play on both maps (from I and II) sounds interesting.

I hope that one day the 40K license gets shared with Creative Assembley (I believe Games Workshop still own the licenses for game production of 40K, they haven't limited themselves to THQ have they?)


The multi-map support reminds me of the Lord of the Rings version of Risk. They made 4 maps (one for each corner of Mordor) that you could just put together and play over the entire area. I hope the balancing works and results in a square-enough map. 4 maps is easy to turn into a square, but if TW:W2 is to the west of TW:W1, where can they place the 3rd installment to stop it from being one extremely long (and narrow) map?

I would take everything BuzzFeed says with more than just a grain of salt, so I'm inclined to agree with Tovias.

Both of them are free for everyone who bought the early adopter package but can also be bought individually from the Steam store.

Actually the second, they already released a DLC for the Space Marine fleet a while ago.Reply
Ben Barrett Avatar

I thought that was a pre-order thing, later released as DLC? Suppose my definition of first is off either way.

Warhammer 40,000: Regicide review snippet Does Warhammer 40,000: Regicide reward strategic planning?
Unless you switch to classic mode and turn it into regular chess, not really. The RNG influences the outcome of each turn too much. You can obviously still make stupid moves that end up with you losing valuable pieces, but "good" moves (that aren't just a follow up to a bad move from the opponent) aren't guaranteed to end with a positive outcome if the dices decide it's time to taunt you for a bit.

This is one of those situations where they are damned if they do, damned if they don't.
If they had made them too easily available they would have had a different crowd complaining that they don't feel rare enough.Reply

Spot on. I have a few friends in the industry, mainly artists, and I cannot tell you the disappointment many of them talk about when their assets are underappreciated or even unnoticed. Rarity is sometimes a good thing.

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada review snippet How active is the multiplayer community for Battlefleet Gothic: Armada?
Sadly, it has gone done a lot lately due to the inability of the devs to hotfix problems with the balancing. On top of that their communication with the community isn't stellar either and deadlines seem to be seen as a vague estimate.

Darkest Dungeon review snippet How harsh is the RNG in Darkest Dungeon?
Quite harsh when you attempt to switch into higher level dungeons as soon as they become available. I watched a team of champions who had beaten lower level dungeons without difficulties disintegrate after just two mob groups in a higher one more than once. If you take the time and keep sending new recruits (your high level ones will refuse to participate in expeditions that are below their level) into the easier dungeons to gather resources & upgrade your guild and smith as well as farm some decent trinkets, you can counter most of the RNG.
