    I started playing both Van Helsing 2 and Witcher 2 this week

    They both CLEARLY want me to play with a pad - if you have one inserted, VH2 won't use anything else (until you make a char and can get...

    Steam has no 'machine restriction' in it's terms (that I've noticed) - I believe some games on Steam MIGHT still have limited activation third-party DRM but they're likely to be scarce in this...

    So I picked-up Grim Dawn over the w/e and - well - it's rather good isn't it?

    TQ has always been a BIT marmite for me - I like most of what it does but it's a slow starting game which relies...

    I've always found that you need to get a lucky/good run on the first 2 levels to have any reasonable chance of success - distance from gem to exit and 'some random factor' seem to govern how much you...

    Someone recently posted a screenshot of Metacritic showing GTAV as the top PC game ever - they cropped it so that the user score (rather lower than Half Life 2's) wasn't visible tho ;0

    Having done with VH1 I picked-up VH2 cheap and - well - I'm glad it was cheap is all I can say!

    I was prepared for it to be 'different' - many people have said this (most didn't enjoy it) - but I...

    Posted a small change today - the bar charts for 'all games' now operate on 2 separate axes (scales) so they're a bit more visually interesting.

    As with my Reviews thing - I now have access to...

    Waking this as I ended-up talking with the guy who runs SteamSpy - he has a lot of data on 'likely ownership' numbers as well as better estimates for 'actual played time' for games on Steam AND he's...

    OK - rather than what does/doesn't happen now, what do you actually WANT in terms of DD (rather than physical disc-based) game sharing?

    You have an account (be that XB, PS, Steam or whatever)...

    Yup!

    GoG is really no less a 'rental service' than Steam - almost every game on Steam can be "backed-up" and made to work without Steam (the only ones which can't are those which require active...

    To be clear - whilst GoG offers DRM-free games, there are still rules on how games can be shared you're supposed to comply with.

    DRM-free just means there's no digital means of enforcing copyright...

    Of course the bit the OP missed was that those games cost about 8 pence in any sale you care to mention.

    If a game works 'offline' the problem doesn't even exist - so it's really just games which...

    I've posted some changes both to SteamME and SteamTray - the problem is, as ever, the issue of "you don't have all the information, all the time" (you can't know Last Played AND Time Played without...

    I assumed this was already a thing - I'm almost certain that 99% of Steam's pages would redirect you 'your store' when you attempted to read them - let alone buy something from them??

    As much as you may or may not love Star Wars, it'll be an FPS with the same assholes which infest every other FPS and it's going to be a HARD SELL in the world of the modern online FPS!?

    GW2 was definately aiming for the 'massive spell effects' marketplace - I look back at GW now and think it was probably the better game (tho I've long argued it wasn't an MMO and still do)

    In fairness - I went into it expecting an MMO and not an ES game and it's certainly had some lore and effort thrown at it - it even offers the 'many paths of progress' you'd expect, but there's so...

    To it's credit, it ran a LOT better than it did in Beta - looked nicer, ran smoother but the content was just horrid.

    Perhaps because the subset of 'beta tester who didn't buy it' was enough to bring the games to it's knees?
