    :hmmm:


    Past this it's largely titles that have been in a bundle, have been given away or are otherwise extremely common (Orange Box ect.) and would be true for most games or hits low enough similar percent isn't worth much. Bloodlines is, curiously, just ahead of Fallout 3 though.

    I wouldn't be taking out the champagne yet. "Top 10 on Steam" or "Top 5 on GOG" on slow days mean a few hundred sales, rather than tens of thousands. So we'll have to wait for VD's actual numbers, and also how long the early rush lasts.

    Of course, there isn't a game in the last 15 years that I wish better sales on. Go go.

    I’m promoting this game in almost every community you can imagine. I’m feeling like a sophist whore spreading my STD into the darkest corners of the web!

    Come on, guys, Bee and trannies. Let’s get the word out!

    True, but it is a known phenomenon that irrational optimism leads to more hype, which increase awareness, which leads to more promotion and sales. Stop ruining the hype, “decline enabler”!

    My favourite part of this release was waiting until midnight only to find my online debit card had expired. Why didn't I just pre-purchase? :negative:

    I been ready to D1P for a decade or so. Haven't touched AoD anything since the combat demo, which dropped in the mid '80s if anyone else here remembers.

    What resolution is it intended to be run at? In the first one I picked all the text in the loot window overlaps the "hold shift and click" type shit underneath it and makes it illegible.

    Also in the F1 help menu about alchemy it mentions "hey in the beta we're doing such and such" when this shit ain't no fuckin beta bros

    Also it took me a few minutes to figure out I needed to go talk to Dellar more so I could get a waypoint on the world map. I was like how do I leave this town

    I still think Vault Dweller is a humorless asshole for not releasing this on a Thursday but whatever. I'm gonna enjoy the shit out of it.

    That was the plan but Valve suggested to move it to Wed. Since they know better...

    You could actually heal in-combat in Gold Box games, too. Of course, that was party based.

    I'm not against in-fight healing as a mechanic, it's just not fit for the type of game we made. Especially when it's asked not as proper fight mechanic but as a way to heal-scum through the difficulty.

    Party based makes a big difference. Not so much in an action game, as you can have interrupts, make it so the player needs to create some breathing room to get a moment to quaff a non-instant potion. Healing during fights in a turn-based solo game will usually just create the same mechanics as having an increased health pool for that fight, stretching things out but not actually altering the play or challenge (might be okay for thematic reasons, e.g. making the player 'feel' like a particular fight is epic, but not justified as a purely gameplay issue).

    Indeed. Top 10 on Steam on ANY day is huge for an indie old school turn-based cRPG.
