Well another nice gift for you, if you are buying on steam.

 

Don't you dare to move to another country, if you want to continue to play your games!!!

 

http://www.pcgamer.com/new-regional-restrictions-on-steam-gifts-come-to-light/

 

 

The restrictions may also apply to more than just gifts: A user who purchased Skyrim while he was living in Ukraine found that it wouldn't run when he moved back to the US; ironically, he couldn't re-buy it until he contacted Steam support and had the original key deleted from his account.

 

It's not the kind of restriction that's going to affect a lot of people, but those who are affected are completely out of luck: The support page also warns that "Steam Support is unable to modify or remove any region restrictions."

..Steam Support..

 

 

 

Guess it's appropriate that on St Paddy's day we get mention of mythical creatures that guard pots of gold.

 

 

Funny enough I have had no issues with Steam support, I have only had to use them twice

 

Once I bought a game, Mafia 2, and when I tried to load it Steam said the activation key was " already in use "

 

I contacted Steam support  and they asked me to scan my original slip from the company I bought the game from and then email them this scanned slip  as proof that I had indeed purchased the game 

 

 This was slightly inconvenient  but once I did this they gave me a  new activation key

Looks like Nintendo, spurned on by disappointing Wii U sales, has finally decided to step into the mobile market, partnering with Mobage owners DeNA. It doesn't seem like Nintendo will develop any of the games themselves at this point.

 

They also announced to be working on a new handheld concept called Nintendo NX that would not be a part of the DS series.

 

EDIT: Correction, it's not yet known if it's a handheld or a console.

All I know is that they better not abandon the Wii-U until they've finished Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem.

More importantly, Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem better still be happening.  I desperately want that game.  if it goes the way of The Last Guardian, I will cry.

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2015-03-18-warhammer-quest-dev-reveals-new-warhammer-40k-game-deathwatch-tyranid-invasion

 

 

Rodeo Games, developer of Warhammer Quest, is making a Warhammer 40K turn-based strategy game.

 

Deathwatch: Tyranid Invasion is being built using Unreal Engine 4 and is due out on iOS devices summer 2015 as a premium title.

 

You control a squad of Space Marines special operatives called Deathwatch and battle Tyranids.

 

Gameplay is similar to Rodeo's Warhammer Quest, but Deathwatch is full 3D, so you can spin, pan and rotate the camera.

 

It also uses a Codex book, which functions like a sticker book. As you collect new pieces of wargear, relics and weapons, you see them place in the book. There are 250 of these items.

 

You can have a maximum number of five units in your squad, Rodeo's Ben Murch told Eurogamer. The single-player offering includes 10 acts, each containing four missions. Each act portrays an important conflict in the battle for the Astolat Sector.

 

"We want to bring back that feeling of playing table top Games Workshop games where you can take your time, and plan turns in advance in order to succeed," Murch said.

 

"Equally, you can charge in all guns blazing. It's just that all your marines might not survive."

 

Each marine in your squad has active abilities and passive abilities, which are unlocked by saving up and spending experience points you gain from missions. However, if your marine dies on a mission, then he will lose any unspent XP, adding a risk/reward element to the gameplay.

 

Away from single-player, there is a multiplayer component. You can take your marines from the single-player campaign, with all of their wargear, and fight up to three friends online.

Recently, a team of modders released the 1.00 version of System Shock Infinite, improving and expanding the already amazing System Shock 2 in various ways. It's like the content mods for Kotor 2, Vampire: TM, and various other games. Here's the feature list:

ALSO, there is a Cyberpunk Sale on Steam until March 20th, which has System Shock 2 off 75%, for a measly 2.5 dollars. Now is a really good time to either get into or revisit one the best games of all time. If you prefer DRM-free, GOG has it, though not on sale currently.

 

If you don't like the additional stuff from the mod (some of the changes are quite radical), just grab a hi-res/wide-screen support mod.

 

(I skimmed through the user reviews, and I was very pleased that no small number of people who played BioShock first went back and played the precursor SS2, and now they say it's better and their new favorite. That's right, son, learn to respect your elder games.)

That's just *cool*, it totaly gives the sense of Scale that EVE has a hard time providing. Didn't really catch what ship they were flying in (I think it's supposed to be the fighters/fighter-bombers that are generally launched by (super)carriers). But flying alongside all these iconic ships looks pretty damn awesome, it's also pretty cool how the collateral damage of the Doomsday being fired by the Avatar "accidentally" annihilates the player ship, not sure if that was just done for the sake of the clip tho, CCP is pretty good at making awesome clips after all...

Does anyone know by a chance if The Arland Atelier Trilogy compilation contains some DLCs on the disc or only the three games?

 

I am searching all around the web, but can't find clear Yes or No anywhere :(

I have the games already, but if the disc contains DLCs, I'll be willing to purchase it again.

I still don't really know what to think about this game. How will it work? Does it have singleplayer? How much fake is the walking on planets and space stations? Will it be an MMO like Eve?

From what I've gathered, you will actually live in space with Chris Roberts.  Although it has permadeath.
