Correct - you can read the patch notes but in 2.0 or 3.0 or somewhere in between they did tons of work on it. First, they added a bunch of 'ruler quests' where you make decisions about things and...
Yeah, I definitely didn't like the health system as much post-patch (I experienced it when playing the expansions). Not sure what was wrong with the original, unless they felt it was "too forgiving."
Also via a just-released KS update for Overload (the new 6DOF shooter from the Descent devs):
"We're working hard on Overload and the game is looking great, but as sometimes happens, it's taking...
Here's some additions, via me doing a "where are my Kickstarters at/what is their current estimated release date" check today.
System Shock (original release date - won't be surprised if...

Ah, thanks Graham, that warms my heart - had no idea any staff paid attention. I used to be good at this, I promise ;)
And yes, I think we are all aware in our various "WHAT?" reactions that the...
Thanks for sharing. Not understanding what I was getting into, I chose NOT to be informed when The Jig Was Up. Yikes.

Given your avatar I'd assume that Quadrilateral Cowboy was also a highlight? (also sadly absent from the list, totally on mine).

Oh - and as someone who tends to primarily play games a few years after they come out via cheapo sales/backlog, and also has some tastes not reflected in the hivemind, I've only played 3 of the picks...

I just want to emphasize how impressive spoken_starfish's score is here. The all-time high is 18, and that was in a year where they more-or-less spoiled 8 of their picks via Game of the Month, and...

This is only the fourth annual competition and I won two of them, so starfish has only won once before!
But yeah: obviously Devil Daggers is on there. Which produces more head-scratching misses...
I have a little widget (via isthereanydeal.com) that alerts me when an item is at its lower-ever price. As of the first day of Steam sale, 28 items on my wishlist are record lows (either from Steam...

Great, not only am I gonna lose but I'm gonna be out double the cash! ;)
But yeah, if Devil Daggers isn't tomorrow's pick, then GOTY is Devil Daggers, no doubt. If it IS tomorrow's pick...well,...

Which does make one wonder who exactly puts together the 'top lists' - Civ 6 wasn't in the strategy top 50 and yet will inevitably be selected over games ranked in that. *shrug*
19-12-2016, 08:42 PM
Yeah, I genuinely have no idea why that didn't happen last year - it was very confusing, and I sure as heck hope there will be. For instance, there are five games that came out this year that RPS...

Cut this one at the list minute so sub in one of a few games which will definitely not win. #imagenius
And yeah - with only four picks left there isn't much room for doubt. I will personally eat...

It may be a sign of them getting older, but in general RPS seems ever-more-friendly to positive iteration - that is, if there is a game they really like and there is a sequel that slightly improves...

The remainder of my list is actually more or less identical to spoken_starfish's, in terms of things that have a chance. Which may be a bad omen for him...
Then again, I will be pretty surprised...

It's going to take them a while to get the systems in place to even offer legal marijuana (it takes time to spin up a bureaucracy) and when they do it will be absurdly expensive, none of which...

I don't know what I've done to deserve what 2016 has given me.
16-12-2016, 05:39 PM
Well, "spoken starfish" is an anagram of "shapes of stink." Seems pretty suspicious to me!
14-12-2016, 11:51 PM
RPS, you're hurting me.
14-12-2016, 12:40 AM
Ooo, yeah. That's almost certainly it. Given that we know Alice picked it for her GOTY I won't be shocked to see it take top honors.
13-12-2016, 06:48 PM
Yeah, I don't think they're gonna repeat the 2014 shenanigans. "Second-best hell," eh? Does Inside take place in hell? Shadow Warrior 2? Was listing Inside as GOTY not actually a mistake?
Tried it, didn't work. Guess I'm reinstalling. There goes my Saturday.
I haven't! I will try that tonight.
