Entropia is a pay-to-win hellhole for which MindArk deserve the utmost respect for being able to maintain for so long. Maybe that was its plan all along: maximise revenue via minimal effort, then unleash the post-human singularity. The company name suddenly seems apt.

Why did Far Cry 5 trade its teeth for GTA-style humour?Why did Far Cry 5 trade its teeth for GTA-style humour?

Funnily enough I was working through the Disco Inferno mission earlier today and from what I've played of the game so far - which isn't much tbf - FC5 feels closer to Wildlands than any of the previous Far Cry games. Kinda wished I'd gone for the Standard Edition now. Oh well.

Some people with money buy a ticket for Virgin Galactic. Other people - gamers - with less money, pre-order VR tech. Both are relatively expensive, both are in some ways a leap into the dark, but they also offer the chance to be on the frontier of something literally game-changing. It's exciting!Reply

Or in some cases, people with barely any money buy in anyway, because YOU CAN'T STOP MY DREAMS.

It's nearly 50% cheaper at various cdkey sites. Well worth it.

All of which are selling Uplay keys, not Steam.


Mystery solved.

You only needed to read beyond "from the creator of X-Com" to stop yourself from being duped.

There's no split screen on PC though, right?Reply

That's what I've heard too, which is very disappointing.

WWO did have a habit of killing off its user base, which probably hastened its demise.Reply

Mechanically it's probably still the best MMO out there, so "demise" is probably not in the near horizon. Eventually, but not just yet.


Everything else feels outdated though.

I'm going to go out on a limb and predict that it won't be available on Steam.Reply

To be honest Orgin is pretty decent these days. Not that I love EA in any way, but it has improved a bit, considering it could be a lot worse.

Elite: Dangerous review snippet How good are the sounds in Elite: Dangerous?
Considering how poor the medium of space is at conducting sound, Frontier has done a brilliant job of tickling your brain via your ears. There are of course plenty of standard-issue sci-fi effects to take in; beeps, boops, zaps, hums and background static, all of which is expertly crafted and delightfully subtle. There are however one or two areas where the sound design borders on genius; an example being the throbbing and whining of your ship as it strains to accelerate, and later on, when under attack, as faint metallic groans work to ensure you can feel the bulkheads buckling all around you. Probably even more than the cockpit interiors, the sounds of your ship work to reinforce the fact that your vessel is you both your armour and your tomb as you navigate the most hostile environment humans are ever likely to endure.
