    They were chosen to be a Daily Deal for the sale. Valve opposed them discounting their game any further, as it was so new. Valve talked them out of giving it a further discount, and the game was...

    SteamSpy's numbers don't look particularly amazing. Sure, there are devs that would love to have those numbers, but Mode 7 might have hoped for better? Cortex also never picked up the word of mouth...

    If you mean Jesus_Phish's comment, and you really don't know, it was in reference to Ubisoft's reason for not implementing a playable female character in Assassins Creed Unity. (Ubisoft basically...

    Resident Evil was tagged as survival horror because it was a horror game with (at least perceived) limited resources that made it a survival game as well. This label was given to the series before...

    The PC ports of Netherrealm fighting games have been troubled for some time. MK9, Injustice, and MKX were all ported to PC by High Voltage Software, and all of those ports drew complaints about...

    I played it on a Gamecube when it came out.

    It is my least favorite of the "classic" RE games. It is kind of annoying, kind of stupid, rather forgettable, ... It isn't offensively bad or...

    Games with loading screens that aren't animated in any manner. Not so bad for short load times, but this happens in games that have much longer load times.

    Broforce is guilty of this. Instead of...

    I'd guess not. It looks to be based on the current controversies around the management of Bitcoin that some argue have the whole system on the edge of collapse.

    You could buy the console versions of Borderlands. They have two-player split, and didn't the PS4 version add four-player split?

    There also was a way to get the PC version to play two-player...

    But who doesn't already own all of those games through previous bundles?

    On an unrelated related note, looking at the Steam description for Death Goat made me realize how annoyed I am that "arcade...

    It may be most properly understood as a board game, but it is being sold in video game form and thus opens itself to judgment as a video game.

    Further, what works in one form does not necessarily...

    The alternative leads to "too much junk". That was a complaint about the Roguelikes Moria and Angband, and which remains an issue with random loot games. Junk was anything that was effectively...

    From my experience, "shut up and listen" coming from marginalized communities is only sometimes as noble as your provided interpretation.

    At other times, it is "Shut up, I don't want to hear...

    Bunny Must Die is rather proudly Super Metroid crossed with Castlevania, as it openly takes elements from and makes references to both series. (The first thing in the game is a play on the power-ups...

    You can read the quote as being a "no buy" because of 30fps, or because it is a Japanese console game, or because it will be a fairly straight port of a PS1 title. It covers all the bases of "true...

    It is a $30 game that has yet to see official release and is now one of six games in a $2 bundle. That is very much not a healthy sign for an Early Access title. Yes, plenty (arguably too many)...

    I doubt it was done that way to convey a world-weary traveler perspective. It is purely a side effect of power levels, inflated further by a loot system mechanic.
