  1. You must be a fun person to have on parties... Mate, if you don't like the country you live in, then move. I can tell from experience though that there will always be something that you don't like in a different country. Take some time off, do some work and travel abroad (Australia and New Zealand are very good in this regard, but obviously not the only options) and try to find a country that suits your specific needs enough. It doesn't have to be perfect, as long as you can live in it and feel at peace.
  2. This week Epic Games is giving away 6 free games. Batman Arkham Collection https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-US/bundles/batman-arkham-collection LEGO Batman Trilogy https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-US/bundles/lego-batman-trilogy I don't think these need any explanation. If you haven't played the Arkham games yet, then I highly recommend them as they do an awesome job of giving you a badass Batman feeling.
  3. For a limited time and till stock lasts Humble Bundle is giving away a free Steam key for Endless Space (a 4 X strategy game). This is for one more day so act fast if this is your kind of game :).
  4. From now till the 19th the free game on the Epic Story is: Conarium Conarium is a chilling Lovecraftian game that follows the gripping story of four scientists and their endeavor to challenge what we normally consider to be the "absolute" limits of nature. Inspired by H.P. Lovecraft's novella At the Mountains of Madness, but largely set after the original story. You, as Frank Gilman, open your eyes inside a room filled with strange, pulsating noises. Patterns of lights executing a Danse Macabre on the walls is presented by a queer device on the table. Having recalled nothing other than that you’re in Upuaut, an Antarctic base located near the South Pole, you find the place deserted and have a distinct feeling of something being terribly wrong. Somehow knowing that your memories cannot guide you enforces a strange feeling of vulnerability, a familiar yet alien sensation of being a part of a peculiar whole... Soon you will discover that having used the device during the expedition, you have died but then returned subtly changed, speaking of strange memories and of strange places. You have lost something important or gained something sinister... Explore the Antarctic base, as well as dreams and visions. Study clues and unlock secrets, whilst avoiding macabre beings at all cost. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LNUzrWv50EI https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-US/product/conarium/home
  5. The Epic Launcher certainly isn't the most polished yet when you look at Steam, but I'm willing to give them a shot. Quite a few games are a lot cheaper than on Steam and I know Steam has a lot more to offer socialwise and with reviews and all. But to be fair a review is just based on opinions of other people and there have been several games with horrible reviews on Steam that I actually enjoyed. And yes like stumpy said, you can obviously subscribe to receive emails, but even then it can't be difficult to remember sometimes if you don't take a look right away because you have just a week to 'buy' the game.
  6. Quite a few people probably don't know or don't remember that the Epic Store is giving away free games every week. As most people have very busy lives nowadays it can be difficult to remember to check the store every week. They have been giving away some pretty good games and it would be a shame to miss these. Therefore I will try to update this post every week with the games they are giving away until they stop doing it. This is obviously meant for people that are interested in downloading something from the Epic Store. This week you can download: The End Is Nigh https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V8DUps2QKA0 The End Is Nigh is a sprawling adventure platformer where you die a lot, but that's ok because you are probably already dead anyway. https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-US/product/the-end-is-nigh/home ABZU https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e9d8YjpJgiU From the art director of Journey® and Flower®, ABZÛ is a beautiful underwater adventure that evokes the dream of diving. https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-US/product/abzu/home
  7. In my own defense, I've never said such a thing and would never think that either. Being skeptical or wanting to see proof doesn't mean I dismiss her perspective. It's absolutely horrible if it is true (even though after reading about her work life you'd think her life couldn't get any worse). I just want justice to be served, whatever side that is. Did you take a look at some of the sites linked at the bottom of the article? Some of them had the option to comment and I couldn't find one comment that wanted to wait for proof first, he's already crucified. After being on the other side of the story, I know how horrible it can be to be falsely accussed. We'll see how this will turn out in the end.
  8. I get what you're saying peter_spy, but just like any crime it's difficult to prove so many years after the act. And just because someone writes down a detailed description of what happened, it still isn't anything more than just that: a detailed description of one person. Crucifying one person because of that doesn't seem to be the way for me. How many men have actually had their careers destroyed because of false accusations, but they are just collateral right, for the greater good. I don't try to sympathize with the actual rapers, I'm just trying to say that like every crime it has to be proven first. And if there isn't any proof, then you just have to hope that the guy stepped out of line more than once (what a lot of times is the case) and these women come forward as well with their stories. The good thing about MeToo, is that it will improve the live of women now. As rapists will think twice to step out of line. For the victims of these crimes years ago it unfortunately might not change anything, because like you said, it isn't just a car accident that can be proven easily. Edit: Just because there are people that don't immediately believe a detailed story like you and want proof first, it doesn't mean they choose the side of the rapists. I know that is kind of the way discussions are done nowadays (if you're not with me, you're against me), but I condone rapists just as much as you do. The only difference is that I first want some kind of proof before I look different at one person. One of my best friends was falsely accused for sexual conduct with an underaged girl and he can't live in his home town anymore, he lost almost all his friends, lost his job and recently left the country to start a new life. Because even though the charges were false, people had already crucified him. That might explain why I don't believe a story that easily, no matter how detailed.
  9. I think this has to do with the amount of MeToo accusations that were false. The false accusations unfortunately have kind of destroyed and discredited what the movement should actually stand for, which is helping the women that are really being sexually abused, harassed, etc. In this case I have read Nathalie's whole post from top to bottom and although the way she has been treated during her early career is horrible, there's no sort of proof that she has been raped by Jeremy Soule. The way she says he has treated her and almost destroyed her career and life could be enough incentive to falsely accuse him of rape (to get back at him for how her fellow colleagues treated her, for discrediting her, for putting her in a bad daylight, etc.) The hatred for what that one person has done to her, to live in a hell for so many years, can be more than enough for a personal vendetta. She obviously has the skill to create such a story. Now, I'm not saying that this is the case, but I'm also not a person to judge another person just based on one post. I still believe in the innocent until proven otherwise. The largest part of her post is about how bad she's treated and how Jeremy Soule is responsible for this. The part about the actual rape is just a tiny part of the post and could easily be fabricated by someone with her skills. She doesn't want any money out of this (as far as I understand), but nowadays an accusation of rape is enough to destroy the life of one person, just like how Soule almost destroyed hers. So although it could all be true that Soule raped her, it could also be true that he made her life a living hell (without raping her) and she wants to get back at him and knows that accusing someone with a rape story is enough to destroy a career. I personally find it disturbing how fast someone nowadays is found guilty by the world for something that hasn't been proven yet. All the men that are proven guilty deserve all the hatred that they receive/have received and for the ones that go free (even though they are guilty), I believe the bill will always be paid in the end (one way or the other). But burning everyone like witches after a rape accusation that hasn't been proven is not the way IMO.
  10. Something I read recently as a tip is using a first part of a password that is the same for all the sites you use and then adding the website behind it. For example: passwordTDM. When you then change your password you can add a number to it.
  11. I'd love to hear your opinion after you've finished the game. As I've read several reviews that said that the later part of the game (after about 5 hours) isn't as good as the first part (like the developers ran out of money). Some of these reviews are more than a year old though and quite a few patches have been released since then, so I wonder if it has improved. There are expections like chakmann said. I still love to play the Soul Reaver games, the story is just amazing. I have a potato laptop, so graphics are always last on my list of priorities. The Tomb Raider games you mentioned were great games because gameplay-wise that was kind of the standard at that time. I wouldn't mind playing them if it was just the graphics, but IMO they haven't aged very well on the gameplay part either as there were a lot more limitations at that time.
  12. Yeah, it's a shame really. I remember playing the demo of Thief 2 endlessly while I saved enough money to buy it. Demos are a perfect showcase of your game. If they would have released a demo for Anthem though, it would have sold even worse I think, so it's probably a strategic choice to not do it.
  13. You could always download the demo and see if it is something that you can get into or not. I'm not sure how up to date the demo is, but it will atleast give you an idea what to expect. Yeah, visually it's very basic, but as long you find the gameplay good I think you should be able to enjoy it. I've had lots of fun with it and still play it sometimes (have the game for years now), even though top-down isn't my favourite perspective either. Development of the game is pretty slow (on the feature front), but they release new updates quite often.
  14. The sandbox mode that Project Zomboid offers might be something for you if you don't mind a top-down perspective. The 'normal' game mode is pretty hardcore and makes it very difficult to escape from the zombies (as that is the vision of the developers, to kill you). In the sandbox mode you can change pretty much change all the settings to your liking though, such as speed, sight and the amount of zombies and a lot more. Whatever your preference, you still have to be smart fighting zombies, as one bite usually means the end (which can be adjusted as well).
  15. Thanks for sharing this, as I didn't know about these. Those are now weekly free giveaways till the end of the year I think. Next week Rebel Galaxy will be free and that was just a game that I wanted to buy.
