  • May 2024 : Selection of games to be released
    @GoLLuM13 That is a good point, I did not think of that. Need to investigate this a bit more. But it does bring up a question of how the game's popularity is evaluated these days. Steam is one of the biggest platforms and is often used as a standard to assess how good the game is doing, but it... see more
  • Revenge of the 6th: check out Tales of the Empire!
    @Saka I want to say it's not just Finland, usually it is warmer than what we have now here too. But in my recent experience, it is not so much as the weather is abnormal, it is more that the weather is a month too early or too late. The odd thing is, though, that summer is early for you but late... see more
  • Warhammer fans, save the date: 23rd of May!
    @ChristianRasmussen That's fair. Though I wonder why Summer Sale. I mean, with Christmas and New Year, you need to shop for presents and it helps you save with those sales if you need to buy games for your friends, your kids, your friend's kids, your kid's friends and so forth, it is a season... see more

  • Revenge of the 6th: check out Tales of the Empire!
    @Saka Oh my, that is warm and humid. A couple of years ago it was very warm this time of the year already, but not this year. What is the usual temperature for Finland at this time? see more
  • [ STEAM : Publisher Sales ] It's PARADOX's turn to offer -80% promotions!!!
    Which is why I am more inclined to...not forgive exactly, but overlook that shortcoming if they are actually making a trilogy and this is not the "proper end" but more of an "intermission". If they manage to turn this thing around (and they got this feedback not just from you and me either, many... see more
  • Revenge of the 6th: check out Tales of the Empire!
    @Saka It could if there was a shop around that sold those, and if the temperature was not 14 degrees 😅 As things are, we get ice cream once a day when the old-style ice cream truck drives by (with a jingle and everything). I guess I could try to arrange it so that I'd go out to pick things up... see more
  • [ STEAM : Publisher Sales ] It's PARADOX's turn to offer -80% promotions!!!
    @Saka But even with those two choices the consequences are superficial at best. I mean, if almost everything except the final cutscene is the same, well, that is not a good thing. That kind of gameplay design was in 20 years ago, but these days, after Witcher and Baldur's Gate 3 and Fallout New... see more
  • Steam is having Open World Survival Crafting Fest!
    Hello Legion Gamers! A bit of good news for saving: Steam is having Open World Survival Crafting Fest! It will offer discounts on selected games until the 3rd of June! Check it out: A few good offers here, especially if you have not played some of the games yet, like Subnautica or Days... see more
  • May 2024 : Selection of games to be released
    @GoLLuM13 so The Rogue Prince of Persia is out in Early Access, but it does not seem to be doing all that well yet: and that's after them postponing the launch because of Hades 2. I wonder what went wrong? Maybe it is a bit too much like Dead Cells after all... see more
  • Revenge of the 6th: check out Tales of the Empire!
    @Saka It is, but then I need to find the time to sneak it in, too. And I need to come up with an excuse for why I am going out (I live in a village where there is literally nothing to do). It's like a spy thriller here when organizing these things... see more
  • A TV potpourri
    @Saka That is true, and rightly and deservingly so! But is being a national pride and treasure enough to stay afloat these days, I wonder? I honestly do not know, Moomins have a lot going for them. I want to check if Pippi Longstocking and Karlsson get as much reverence in Sweden as Moomins do in... see more
  • Revenge of the 6th: check out Tales of the Empire!
    @Saka For me, it is both easy and hard. Arranging surprise gifts is relatively easy, like you, I can ensure the privacy of my screen. What I struggle with is delivery: if I order a gift to be sent to me that I want to use as a surprise, it is hard to arrange a date when no one else is home so the... see more
  • [ STEAM : Publisher Sales ] It's PARADOX's turn to offer -80% promotions!!!
    @Saka It is more of a rumour at this stage, developers are dropping names and hints but nothing specific. We're not even sure if it is going to be an AAA game or a MMORPG game. So stay tuned 😉 Yeah, it did feel anticlimactic. But then again, the whole game is a bit like that, there are almost no... see more
  • [ STEAM : Publisher Sales ] CD Projeckt RED is running these promotions! Cyberpunk -15% , Witcher 3 - 50%, ...
    That is true, but I mean, even if the ending is horrible, it is a proper ending, closure and everything. Sure, if you ignore all the sidequests and make bad choices you will get less of an ending, but the game gives you a chance to have the best proper ending, too. Some games are bad with that and... see more
  • A TV potpourri
    @Saka Then I am not sure, hard to guess the specifics of their business model without looking into it extensively or having an inside source. But hey, Moomins still got it, that's nice that they remain popular. Kind of like Hummel figurines 😉 see more
  • Kendo
    Why does it take so long? I mean, many skills can take long to grasp, piano comes to mind, but there are reasons for that, from training muscle memory to establishing new neural pathways. In the case of kendo, why does it take this long? see more
  • Revenge of the 6th: check out Tales of the Empire!
    @Saka To be honest, I would not enjoy a surprise party either 😅 But what about more conventional surprises, like choosing a birthday or Christmas gift or something like that? Then again, I guess you do not need that much time to do that. see more
  • [ STEAM : Publisher Sales ] CD Projeckt RED is running these promotions! Cyberpunk -15% , Witcher 3 - 50%, ...
    @ramax It is hard to end games properly. Mass Effect is one of the most famous examples, but there are plenty more, @Saka and I were just discussing Hogwarts Legacy endings, too. And it is hard to let go of a game that makes money even with a good ending, too. The Witcher 3 ending was good... see more
