It's a way for them to make sure you can't restore a previous save point because you mess up or don't like something that you did.
Okay, that's even worse, but thanks for telling me. Now I know to avoid JFO entirely. :)

Re: What are you playing now?

I just started Jedi Fallen Order and I'd better stop playing new games because I have 4 now I need to get through (Horizon Zero Dawn, God of War, Spiderman, and now JFO). Good experience in the beginning but I feel like the controls are a little clunky. Actually I probably just need more time to ad...

Re: Beyond a Steel Sky

I have Beneath a Steel Sky (free, as you said, from GoG), but I've actually never played it. Is it any good? No idea. I haven't played it either. I've been meaning to for a long time, but with all the distractions around (not the least of which includes a constant influx of new games), playing a 26...

Beyond a Steel Sky

No, I didn't mean Beneath a Steel Sky . That game is free on GOG. I'm talking about the sequel that's being developed (and published) by the same company that made the original. It's called Beyond a Steel Sky and it looks like it'll eventually be available on Steam . No word on whether or not it'll ...

Cedric Shooter

NOTE: I don't know if this game has appeared before on here (and I'm not particularly inclined to search for it), so if this is a repeat, well... too bad. ;) Okay, who hates Cedric? I know I do. A free game has appeared called Let's Kill Cedric (aka "Cedric Shooter"), a game where your objective is ...

Re: Laura Bow and the Mechanical Codex

I'm not surprised that Activision is taking a wait-and-see approach to this. The adventure genre hasn't been a big earner (in mainstream gaming) since the early-to-mid 1990s. I've looked at the characters on NineZyme's website and although I didn't really notice it, Maia said the fashion and hair fo...

Re: Question about Half-Life 2 ...

:( It sounds like a game I wouldn't enjoy, then. [...] Is there a "sneaking" skill in HL2 that you can improve to avoid ambushes and surprise attacks? I'm asking because, IIRC FPSes like Wolf 3D and DOOM etc., I could be sneaking around the dungeon and suddenly - BAM! Someone ambushed/critted you, ...

Re: Question about Half-Life 2 ...

What do you mean by "antiquated", DPX? [...] So how is HL2 different? I'm just curious ... :) Well, besides the graphics, I mean the general game design, interface and options would all seem very outdated. That might not mean much to you since your experience with FPS is limited to older titles (th...

Re: Question about Half-Life 2 ...

So, my question is this: what kind of game is HL2? Is it a pure FPS, or ...? *shrug* As far as I know, Half-Life 2 was the first game on Steam back in 2003. HL2 was an adventure/FPS. By "adventure" I don't mean the Sierra/LucasArts kind, but just that it involved more than purely run-and-gun tactic...

Re: Toys of your childhood...

Like Rath, I had tons of Transformers from the 1980s. There are probably still some at my Dad's house, although I did bring one with me to Canada: an original PowerMaster Optimus Prime that I purchased back in 1988. Nowadays the plastic creaks if I try to transform it, so I just leave it robot mode.

Re: Codename: Iceman Comic

I didn't write either of the following paragraphs (notbobsmith did), yet somehow I was quoted as having written them... I think Hollywood has a tendency to G.I.

Re: Codename: Iceman Comic

I know this comic is only meant as a tie-in to the game, but it's so full of inaccuracies, I don't even know where to begin... :shock: Where? The comic is pretty much a "walk thru" of some of the near end game sequences (the disguise, the contact on the beach, hiding from the enemy). Maybe it's acc...

Re: Question about "The Witcher"...

That's another reason why having a DVD is better for me. :) It's either that, or having to download games from Europe ... and as games get bigger, the download times get longer. True, but you can back up the games you download from both GOG and Steam. Sure, you have to download them first (and in y...

Re: Cool little Sierra find...

Codename: Iceman is visually a very beautiful game. But that Sub Sequence is... brutal. The thing is - Running Silent isn't the only thing you need to do. You need to dive the sub down also and get below the cold area - and run silent, so that no heat signatures are detected. You're referring to us...
