Depends on the game surely. Last I checked (some years back) EVE was hosted in London. And most of the bigger games will have Euro servers which'll generally be slightly quicker to reach from most of...

(re farming simulator)
I thank you, you may consider this a successful talk down - for now at least. Can't guarantee I won't give it occasional flirty glances at lower price points :)

Ahem. Erm. I find myself, embarrassingly, drawn to Farming Simulator.
Fave games of the last year have been Euro Truck Simulator, Elite Dangerous, Kerbal Space Program, and (of course) Witcher 3....

Grumpy, bad mood, perhaps a little angry at injustice or a perceived slight? A spot of gleeful cathartic violence is called for. Taking it out on the kids would mark you out as some kind of bad...
Turns out I'm a dirty cheating exploiter. Apparently.
News to me. Haven't played since before Christmas.
A bit of forum-fu suggests that anyone who's bought ships/modules from the Founders...
Yeah, with it being a whole tenner cheaper for a boxed copy on Amazon right now does not suggest this is steam sale of the year territory.
I've been rather (naively perhaps) surprised by the...

Yeah, I've been hovering over that one for a while. Kinda almost hoping no-one can talk me down. $5.59 is a helluva price you've got there tho - £7.50 in the land of tea & crumpets, which I'm...

It's the talk me down thread :) Telling him how much fun I'm also having in Elite doing all those other things isn't helping :)

Going to try to stick to the "talk me down" ethos here, ignoring the positives and just focus on why you don't want to buy it now.
If you don't like Euro Truck Simulator you won't like Elite at...
Completely valid point. Corporations are able to use globalisation to source cheap labour and materials from the third world, and run their tax affairs through the Carribbean, yet will lobby hard to...
Thanks Sparks - I'm warming to the t-flight. Sure the X52/pro might be "better" but I'm not getting the impression it's a hundred quid better.
intel i3 530 (2.9ghz, 2 real cores / 4 threads w/hyperthreading), ATI HD7770 (1gb vram DX11/mantle), 4gb ram, Win 7 64bit - will it work? First bit to upgrade?
Ahh that's a far more sensible approach, always a little wary of embargoes so close to release - what are they hiding? Were it for any other franchise, by any other dev, and any other publisher I'd...
Ouch - I take it you're down under?
Something odd(er than usual) seems to be happening with Aus/NZ prices. At £30 in the UK (c. $50 US?) it falls into my "very occasional treat" price bracket.
Anyone else a teensy bit excited?
I don't pre-order games.
Well, I kinda do. Looking back I've pre-ordered three games in the last four years - Civilisation V, XCOM: Enemy Unknown, and, now,...
Just wandered over to the RPS forums to ask the same question.
Note that in the steam forum the devs are confirming 26th September release.
2014 was going to be the year of the space sim but I...
Last I looked early access was priced at a rather silly 70 odd quid, now it seems down to a far more reasonable £27 for the weekend.
Further, it strikes me as the sort of game that doesn't suffer...

Ok, trickier challenge:
State of Decay
Your best shot is to tell me that keyboard & mouse support is still whacked despite recent patching. I don't have any particular religious grounds for...

This one's going to be tough, not gonna lie.
My best shot: It's not the multiple playthrough game you might think it to be. After a couple of false starts, you'll get one playthrough. You'll...

It's four, really really bad cracks at different genres. Together it makes for mild short term entertainment but an extremely shallow game.
First phase is basically pac-man.
Second phase is... I...

In addition to that already said, it might make you hurl.
If you're like me (and many others) you might suffer from motion sickness in some first person games. I seem to be only mildly afflicted -...

Not about to google "hot pipes fanservice" (well, not on my computer anyway). Nude mods, good god, can thankfully be ignored. But I'm getting the impression that a large part of the draw seems to be...

Liking this thread, glad I'm not the only one who's had Far Cry 3 on their list through multiple sales.
So, good internet people, please put me off:
Might & Magic: Heroes VI
A big bunch of the Lego games are 75% off on Steam's mid-week thingy, including Lord of the Rings & Marvel Super Heroes for £3.74 each.
Yay or nay for a thirty-something cynical old grump with no...

The ending credits to the first Borderlands introduced me to DJ Champion with this:
Bought the album as a result. And the subsequent one....
