Probably a decade late to be relevant, but Neverwinter Nights 2 forums reopened on the Obsidian forums (probably as a result of the demise of the Bioware forums where they used to be hosted)

Yeah, I just noticed the announcement at the top of the forum and was wondering if it'd been there since 2006 and that perhaps I'd just never noticed it. :ninja:

I predicted we'd get NWN2 forums when the Bioforums went kaput. I'm a veritable Nostradamus. To welcome them home I feel mildly compelled to work on a magnum opus about the chemical composition of Neeska's sweat.

 

In slightly old random news all the Paradox games' sales figures are back on steamspy, including PoE.

So they didn't reach 1 mil for PoE.

I'm pretty sure Obsidian declared the game a success after 500k sales tho (also keep in mind there were some boxed copies for backers, GOG copies and Origin copies)

Origin copies???


I'm the enemy, 'cause I like to think, I like to read. I'm into freedom of speech, and freedom of choice. I'm the kinda guy that likes to sit in a greasy spoon and wonder, "Gee, should I have the T-bone steak or the jumbo rack of barbecue ribs with the side-order of gravy fries?" I want high cholesterol! I wanna eat bacon, and butter, and buckets of cheese, okay?! I wanna smoke a Cuban cigar the size of Cincinnati in the non-smoking section! I wanna run naked through the street, with green Jell-O all over my body, reading Playboy magazine. Why? Because I suddenly may feel the need to, okay, pal? I've SEEN the future. Do you know what it is? It's a 47-year-old virgin sitting around in his beige pajamas, drinking a banana-broccoli shake, singing "I'm an Oscar Meyer Wiene"

I wonder what how much Origin manages to sell of the games they don't publish?  Like, why would you ever go there if it isn't for an EA title?  They run some sales, but they usually aren't that crazy.

Looking at the price history, Origin have had it for 50% off at most, Steam at 60%, full price is the same. No reason not to try to sell it on Origin given they take the same 30% cut as the other major platforms.

All these articles Sierra classics on Steam is puzzling in the reaction to them, given how long they've been on GoG :p

Anyone who bought these immediately will probably be annoyed by this bundle. I know that I would have asked for a refund.

Yeah, there's Timeshift in there.

I look at it as getting the new Kings Quest for 10 bucks off and getting half of Sierra's back catalogue for free.

Theres a new King's Quest? They kept that quiet.


Quite an experience to live in misery isn't it? That's what it is to be married with children.

I've seen things you people can't even imagine. Pearly Kings glittering on the Elephant and Castle, Morris Men dancing 'til the last light of midsummer. I watched Druid fires burning in the ruins of Stonehenge, and Yorkshiremen gurning for prizes. All these things will be lost in time, like alopecia on a skinhead. Time for tiffin.

Yup. It's episodic and apparently, individual episodes take ages to release. It also seems to be a bit more of an action adventure game with direct control over your character as opposed to traditional point and click, but given the weird mash of genres that the original was (or was it? Do I remember that right?), I don't think that really matters too much. There's also a complete lack of objective markers which means I never know where to go, especially in linear corridors. It's horrible.

BT sues Valve over Steam patent infringement allegations !?
 

The suit alleges that the core Steam platform infringes on its Gittins Patent, which “relates generally to providing users with content that originates from multiple subscriptions services and delivering it through a single portal where a customer may access content for which it has access rights.” Steam infringes upon that patent, the suit says, because it “locally stores third-party content, such as videogames, and, through the Steam platform, makes them accessible to users who have access rights, precisely as claimed [in the patent].”

BT also claims that Steam Chat infringes on the Newton Patent, Steam Messaging infringes on its Beddus Patent, and Steam Broadcasting infringes on its Buckley Patent.

 

I think I'm going to patent All the Things, and any time anyone does any out of All the Things I'm going to sue them.

Bt is one of the companies that have claimed to have patented the hyperlink previously. Patent trolling for fun and profits.

I just checked Steam and it's there alright, achievements and all! Titan Quest is one of my favourite action RPG's so this is great (and unexpected) news!

Doesn't Steam have all that stuff now since 10 or so years?

Jim Sterling have managed to get in touch with some insider from Eidos Montreal development team, and got pretty interesting information about the development of the game in the final phase + some more other juicy bits. (Like development cost of 70 millions).

 

This Jimquisition is worthy of watching, even if you do not like the guy.
