Interesting that you have to get it via the battle.net client. Apparently you can buy it with WoW gold too through the WoW token


First I was like "Huh? You drunk, mate?" then I was like :blink: and now I'm like :banghead: **** that noise.

I'm lost

Well, at least now, I think you can pay for the game with your Blizzard Battle.net Balance, and you can buy WoW tokens with gold and redeem it for a Battle.net Balance. That's how that works, sort of. You'd need to get like 400k gold though, or something large like that

Destiny 2 is apparently exclusive to Battle.net on PC.  Which makes a certain amount of sense, but still...

From the creators of This War Of Mine comes FROSTPUNK. A Steampunk survival game in the Arctic? It appears so. Check it!

Yes, it was console exclusive.

Well, they are doing because they need a stronger player-base. Titanfall 2 has awesome multiplayer but on the PC it's pretty much dead. That's what they are trying to avoid I think.

I've got a mate of mine that has about 15million gold, the little AH manipulator that he is. Should probably ask him about it and see if it is possible.

They don't use safety lines to prevent falling, they don't climb together to make it easier on the group, the ones on top don't help the peeople still climbing...

 

I don't climb or hike mountains but even so this staggering incompetence pisses me off.

That is all correct.  But PC version will come out later or so the internetz sez.

I agree that it's a horrible name, but it's short and memorable. I think Rise Of The Tomb Raider was a great game, the newer Tomb Raider games, I find, are much better than the old games. Well, I'm going to be honest, while the older games were good, they've aged horrbly and I wouldn't touch them now, while the newer games will age very well. Anyways, I'll be keeping an eye out for Frostpunk, maybe it will be better than the overrated Don't Starve or The Forest. I've yet to find a good survival game and hopefully this one will be decent enough.

There are people who rock climb and ice climb without safety lines/ropes so I'm not sure how it adds a factor of unrealism to the games when there are people doing it in real life. It's just most people don't really know that there is a community of hardcore sportsmen/women who take danger to the extreme because they are that good.

It's not about realism, it's about being stupid. If they climbed properly, there would be a safety line the people climbing later could use, reducing the casualty rate of the climbers. And what do hardcore sportsmen have to do with dozens of people climbing for survival? Clearly they'd want to maximize their chances, not show off.

My comments wasn't to start an argument, I was just simply stating a fact that people tend to overlook. Being a hardcore sportsmen has everything to do with Survivalism and is right to be put in games as it has been lately because that's what people would have to do in order to live.

Please, allow me to explain: In extreme situations, you won't have time to do everything like set your ropes, clamps, especially if someone is trying to kill you or you lose a backpack, etc. You have to act fast on the fly, if you're in a life and death situation, chances are you won't be mentally or physically prepared either. You won't even have the proper tools to make things safer and easier in the first place and that's the mindset of the extreme sportsmen "Would I be able to do it if I was alone and not prepared? Let's see just how far I can pi sh the envelope today" fully coming to peace with dying, acknowledging the risk just for 3 words. "I did it".

You're right, it's stupid but then again so is climbing Everest or K2, even with all the help in the world and every life saving gadget, a good number of people who attempt it still die yet they continue to do it... skydiving or any other extreme sport with life threatening situations may be just as stupid but I'm glad they put these kind of things in games because I won't ever do them in real life lol

I can't wait!

I wonder if Chloe and Max will return or if it will be with all new characters. What do you guys think?

Hopefully new characters. Else it will likely just end up being fan service crap.

I have a hard time seeing how they could build upon the possible endings of Life is Strange and be true to the characters.

 

But maybe they'll surprise me.

 

I'll check the game out either way, though.

DONTNOD already said at the end of Ep5 that if they were to make a sequel it would be with a new cast. Old characters might get cameos but that may be just wishful thinking on my part.
