Starcraft Remastered

This came out of the blue. I do believe I'm looking forward to redoing the old campaign.

Only problem with beamdog making a remastered version is that make planescape more PC and they block the original being sold like they did with BG 1&2.

Meh, while I won't give Beamdog any of my money because, one, I have no desire to replay these games, and two, I think they're cashing in on other, far more talented, peoples' work, I'm not too bothered by their "enhanced editions" existing.  While the original content they add themselves tends to be of much lower quality than that of the base games, they make it easier to run on modern operating systems than installing the preexisting mods yourself.  I do wish the original games were still available for sale by themselves, for those that want to play the games and don't want to give Beamdog money for their cash-in, but such is the way of things.  Oh well.

Brian Fargo calling it a day after Wasteland 3.

http://www.eurogamer...steland-3-ships

He's definitely put in his time in the video game business. Can't blame a guy for wanting to relax and enjoy his life. I'd retire right now, if I could afford to, and I'm significantly younger than Brian Fargo.

I'd retire immediately if I had the money to do so and I'm 30 years younger than Fargo. But then again I'm not creating anything else except tears and misery.

I'm sorry but this made me laugh out loud this morning. I needed that.

Didn't them Polish people invent Good Old Games just for this purpose only? I don't need an enhanced version with someone else cashing in on someone's great product. Their own game failed from what I've read and I don't think anyone should add anything to Torment. Not even MCA if they can bring him on to the project. Leave the game as it is if you must release an enhanced edition for it.

It does look like a WW2 version of the wargame ... Games. Which could be a good thing, considering.

Is it the kind of job where you don't have to interact with any human being at all? If so, do you have an opening?

I completely suck at any of the Wargame games. Really tried to like them, but I can't even win the most simple missions. Everything is just so tiny and chaotic and I don't know.

Brigador is scheduled re-launch in June.

If you don't know what Brigador is, it's a bad@$$ single player fast-paced mech game with fully destructable environments all at an isometric angle!

http://store.steampo....com/app/274500

There are over 80 vehicles to pilot, from Fallout type power suits to tanks to hovercrafts to killdozers and mini mechs and giant mech-warriors too!

Why is it relaunching? It's not because it's a bad game, it's actually a phenomenal one but there was a lot of mistakes that were made in marketing and that hurt the game to be the success it should have.

What will the relaunch consist of?

Of course you're going to see this game om the front store page of Steam (again) but also the game will be recieving a huge content update. New pilots, new missions, new lore, new pilots, new everything!

For those who already own Brigador, you'll be getting this update for free :)

Mostly no and, I have to talk to people every day and no openings either.

Classic DS game "Lock's Quest" is coming to Steam in an HD remastered form next month and I'm excited about it.

Anyone hear of an upcoming game called Dauntless? Looks like a fantasy RPG meets Evolve (without the PvP). Co-op monster hunter. I really enjoy the style and it looks fun. Apparently by ex-BioWare and ex-Riot people, and it'll be freemium for PC. I thought it looked pretty interesting.

Were it possible, I would give you two thumbs up. One for the awesome game trailer and the other for the awesome gif.
