What? I thought Greenlight didn't even exist anymore! Valve has been talking about shelving it for literally the past 3-4 years - how haven't they gotten around to it yet?

Never believe that anti-Semites are completely unaware of the absurdity of their replies. They know that their remarks are frivolous, open to challenge. But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past.

They're probably waiting for some modder to remove it, then buy the rights or the modding team and pretend they removed it on their own.

 

And people will be raving about how the great Gaben delivered them from the terrors of Greenlight. ;)

600 hours of play???!! DEAR GOD WHY??? The most I have in a game is probably 120 hours, even upon completing The Witcher 3 multiple times wasn't even 120 hours.

Just what do you think you're doing?! You dare to come between me and my prey? Is it a habit of yours to scurry about, getting in the way and causing bother?

 

What are you still bothering me for? I'm a Knight. I'm not interested in your childish games. I need my rest.

 

Begone! Lest I draw my nail...

No hope now. Valve finally closed Greenlight and now Valve Direct is happening which is going to be amazing for pc gaming. Think of it as Nintendo's seal of quality approval <3

Not only doed it look absolutely horrid but it's going to be priced at $40 with 10% off at launch so says the official page anyway. 2 hours ago it said "This game will unlock in 1 hour". Even though I'm not interested in buying this game I am interested in seeing the initial reaction for people who are interested in purchasing it, savvy?

 

Another user made a good point recently saying:

 

"I was going to buy it until I read that the dev said the game was in development for over 20 years, which is hard to believe..."

 

How do you all feel about that?

Well, now it's passed Steam's next update/release window, but I can wait. If something has been in development for two decades, a few days aren't exactly a problem. :)

 

Interestingly, during a few minutes, the game was actually tagged as available:

I never believed the lie, never will but those Steam forums are full of intelligent and often hilarious content from random people.

I got a buddy with 700 hours on Rocket League.

I'd say the answer to that question is kind of like the answer to "who's the sucker in this poker game?"*

I spent over 10k hours on World of Warcraft and Star Wars: The Old Republic and some thousands of hours on Quake World and Quake 3 Arena. Apples and oranges a bit, no? :)
