Award for the worst-named award ceremony in history goes to... "Game Awards 2016".
An appropriately lacklustre sale for such an event.
What is it about "The Game Awards" that offends you so? Is it the fact it uses he word "Game" when talking about games? Perhaps having the word "Award" is a little too on the nose? Maybe you just detest things that start with "The", like all those annoying indie bands.
I can understand your anger and frustration though. Game award ceremonies are not to be taken lightly and we should put more effort into our naming of them. And as for receiving a discount on some the best games from very small teams that have been released this year?! Don't get me started on that!
I hadn't realised it needed spelling out - my apologies for my overestimation. "The Game Awards" isn't a good title for a game awards event because it makes it indistinct from other game awards events, and also causes search engine confusion with anything else "game" that happened in 2016 (e.g. the Olympics). It's akin to releasing a game called "Game" - beyond the brain-blistering blandness lies the further, unending problem of indistinctiveness. Or perhaps you think that the games industry is so small and insignificant that a single, poorly-named awards event is enough?

As for receiving a discount on those games, we had the same - or better - discounts last week, and we'll get the same or better discounts again in about three weeks. Stick around the site for a bit and you'll learn all about games discounts. :{

Wow, what a mature and thoughtful retort, thanks!!!
P.S I know that Kevin and Perry was on the other night and "sad act" is funny in that context, but in real life, it just makes you look pathetic. You need to grow up, name calling is for the playground, lets keep it civil, like you said, you have so little time on your hands, shame to waste it on here ;)

Got time to leave pointless comments though.

I didn't mind your comment, but you have to agree that it was completely pointless. It is like me commenting on a football-related thread while having no interest (or time) whatsoever in sports.
​it wasn't even meant to offend. some people are too touchy.

So calling people you don't 'no' [sic] "sad acts" is not meaning to offend? Oh, and you clearly have too many breaks! :)

A mix of badly run PR from an inexperienced small company (with an over-excited boss) pushed by Sony to expand their remit to a full price game
The PR was on Sony's side. Hello Games were offered money for development of the game, which Sean Murray turned down and instead insisted be spent on marketing (gotta get that false hype up).
It was Hello Games' decision to charge $60 for the game, not Sony.

the growing number of self entitled gamers out there makes for a real toxic combination..
I think people have a right to feel entitled to features that the developers and head of company flat-out said were a part of the game. Multi-player, being the most striking one.
It's like going to a movie, watching the trailers, and then being ushered out. You'd feel a little peeved to say the least.
Over-reaction much? It's more like going to see a film where extra bits were added to the trailer that ran 6 months prior to launch and weren't in the film (so, like Suicide Squad).
The game was never meant to be 'multiplayer' in the traditional sense, which they made clear. It's certainly multiplayer in one sense; that planets, creatures etc can be named by other player, but they did mention during development that there would be the odd possibility of bumping in to another player, which is the one thing that didn't occur.
It was all about managing hype (which every game needs) against the final feature set (which often changes over time). Just like with most of Peter Molyneux's games, Sean Murray wanted to add all those features, probably had code for them but may not have been able to get them working or just believed in what the team could do a little too much. He obviously realised this just before launch and did publicly mention that the game wouldn't be the same as the demos seen and interviews held in 2014.

I see your analogy, the trailer for the game looked epic - the game did not deliver!

No Man's Sky's new additions have really helped turned the game around. Ignoring 'those trailers' and the one lie, it's a good game.

cold for me, they sold an indy dream, and delivered an overpriced turd. I can't believe the recent asa complaint ruled in the devs favour on what sounded like the asa not understanding the complaint properly.

Very nice to see that the original reports were wrong and th more recent rumours correct. :D
What are you trying to say here? oO
Simply what I've said. :p
When the remaster was first announced, it was denied that it would be free for existing owners; in the past few days, rumours have been surfacing of it actually being a free upgrade in the end - as has now turned out to be correct.

I just picked up the Darksiders Franchise Pack from Kinguin for around £7.40. So a little cheaper than directly from Steam which are charging £8.99.

Got the lot, plus this "freebie" when added to steam. :)

Cheers!

How the heck did you finish MA trilogy in a week? I'm playing my second round and it's taken me 40 hours of gameplay to just about complete MA1 and half of MA2!
HOT - One of the greatest games ever.

Well I haven't actually finished them as I'm still playing ME3 but I was off work for a week and wasn't feeling very well so I pretty much spent most of my time playing Mass Effect.

I played ME1 for 36 hours and ME2 for 52 hours (it was more like 10 days than a week) and I have just finished [spoiler]Tuchanka[/spoiler] in ME3 so still a while to go with that one but I'm still loving it. I really hope they recapture the magic with Andromeda.

I have just spent the last week replaying the trilogy (currently on ME3) on PC with the HD texture packs and the controller support in 4K and it is a thing of beauty.
These are still great games and this is well worth £1.99, as for the DLC Bring down the Sky is free here and is really the only DLC from the first game worth playing anyway.
Just an FYI my steam code does not work on Origin saying it is invalid but I didn't really care.

Bought this a year ago and was just playing it tonight for the first time. It is pretty fun. There is a point where it gets quite dark and I cheated by pressing one of the "F#" keys lol.

Only complaint is it doesn't have an FoV slider and I wasn't able to get any of the workarounds suggested up and running.

My 11yo asked for this a few weeks ago but I didn't get it because it's incomplete. Is it worth it anyway? Do you then need to pay full price for the full version when it's released next year?
Based on the above comment by Phil and the thousands of reviews on Steam, the content in the game more than justifies its price.

Regarding the possibility in a price change, this is taken from the dev's Q&A: "Q: Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access? A: Subnautica's price might go up, down, or stay the same during and after Early Access. We don't expect it to change, but the possibility is there.” However, keep in mind that the older the game is on Steam, the bigger and more frequent the discounts are

steam logoSteam – From Counter-Strike Software to One of the World’s Largest Gaming Communities

Valve, the company behind Steam, have been in the gaming business since 1996. Since that time, they have produced the first-person, sci-fi shooter Half-Life, horror titles such as Left 4 Dead, and the multiplayer combat game Team Fortress. They’re also the creators of the popular online action game Counter Strike, as well as Portal.

Steam is one of Valve’s newest innovations. Initially, Steam was simply a tool to provide Counter Strike customers with game updates however, the technology quickly morphed into a gaming platform. Today, Steam is one of the largest gaming platforms in the world. It has more than 3,500 games in a variety of genres that ranges from action to indie as well as an ever-growing community of gamers.  The number of members currently stands at more than 100,000,000, made up of people from 237 different countries worldwide.

Steam allows both fans and game developers to not only buy and play games but also to modify and create new games, in addition to building communities around games from Valve and other independent game producers.

Finding the best deals at Steam

Steam also runs a big sale once a year during the Black Friday weekend. This normally begins on Black Friday and runs through until the end of Cyber Monday. During this weekend, discounted products are normally featured on the homepage as well as on the “Specials“ page.
