The only Stronghold I've ever bought was Stronghold 2. I don't think I'm over that yet.

Is there a difference between Stronghold and Crusaders other than the setting? Which is better?

It's simple, the TP is pushing for actual debt reform, while the Rinos continue to just cave to Obama, because the majority liberal media continues to blame congress for everything, that's what the low information voters are going to believe. I'm sure that makes some in big business nervous.

Let's see now.
the TP is pushing for actual debt reform - Economic self destruction.
while the Rinos continue to just cave to Obama - Actual, grown-up politics.
majority liberal media - The majority looks liberal when you're on the far right
continues to blame congress for everything - It (the shutdown) is their fault, specifically the TP's.
low information voters are going to believe - Calling them that doesn't make it true. Just painfully ironic.
I'm sure that makes some in big business nervous. - Economic self destruction.
It's simple - Yes. So how come you're so wrong?

Ain't that the truth Creston. Losing pets have been the worst moments of my life; I know that makes me very lucky in a way but there's no getting around it, it's horrible. To lose 2 must be brutal.

I've never considered how to deal with other dogs. I can certainly see the logic to what you say Prez. jdreyer, after watching the documentary "Koko: A Talking Gorilla" on YouTube, I've become more convinced that communication is much more of a barrier than intelligence to understanding animals and unlike Koko and her poor kitten, there's no other way to tell a dog.

I'm a bit nervous about today's Into The Black. Fingers crossed.

I will not preorder this one, but if they make good on their promise of making it accessible to mere mortals, I will buy for sure. I've always been fascinated by the scope and depth of the X games, and I loved Wing Commander / Privateer, but found actually playing X3:TC to be a rather frustrating experience.

Likewise. This game looks amazing but I've bought their products before, I'm waiting for feedback and probably a patch or two.

The automated Youtube takedown system sucks so much and gets abused constantly. Unfortunately it is a necessary evil when I hear friends talking about how they watched a full length movie someone uploaded there. I have no idea why people would want to watch a movie on youtube's compressed service especially when it might disappear at any time but whatever.

It must be to YouTube's benefit to improve this. They don't look too clever here IMHO.

Perhaps some accounts could be labelled as trusted, either hand picked, or based on the most popular accounts.

If a take-down request comes in for a trusted account's video, they get 24 hours to challenge the take-down before it comes into effect.

If the content owner doesn't want to wait 24 hours, or if the account owner challenges the take-down, the content owner can file a legal DMCA take-down rather than YouTube's own take-down request system. However, the content owner would then face legal consequences if they abuse this.


(Edit: yes Creston, that's it.)

So I haven't actually followed this incident. Can someone summarize it for me?

Video reviewer asks developer for review code and explains how he reviews games. Developer gives him review code and says on Steam forums in a separate incident that monetizing YouTube videos with DOGI content is fine. Reviewer pans game, finding fault with virtually every feature. Developer gets YouTube to take down video because it contains copyrighted material.

Even if they hadn't supplied the game and given blanket permission, this would be covered under fair use.

When I saw TotalBiscuit's video I thought Day One Garry's Incident looked like it might be fun. Rubbish, but fun in part because of the awfulness.

There's no chance that I'll buy it now.

I don't understand. Does that mean you have to play through it in one sitting?

Eh, well, yes, but that's not as bad as it sounds. It's designed to be played over and over with each play being different, if short.

Edit: Never mind, you're too stupid to understand the difference between Muslim and Terrorist.

The difference between religion and race is a fair point. I don't know what the right word is, Islamophobia is good especially as phobias are irrational fears, but I suspect it's rather more than that. I don't believe you make a distinction between it being a race and a religion unless you're treading water and are desperate for a point to make. I believe that if you see someone who is a bit brown, you assume they are a Muslim and therefore a terrorist. You'll deny this of course and I can't say for sure but I would trust my estimation a lot, a lot more than I'd trust you. I would genuinely trust a random guess more than I'd trust you. At least a random guess has a chance of being right.

Stanley Parable is awesome! I wouldn't really call it a game though... I have no idea what I'd call it! It's a lot of fun for three hours.

wtf. Steam says I played 11 hours. There's NO way that's correct.

I enjoyed it, although I wouldn't say it was awesome. It's so hard to describe but the demo does it justice.

There just doesn't seem to be quite as much to do as I'd expected. Perhaps I've only seen a little bit of it, due to its nature. Such a strange game. So short it doesn't have a save function or checkpoints, it seems you just start from the beginning every time you play the game. That would be a disastrous system in 99.9% of games but it works here.

I LLOLed at the boarded up door. That's the sort of Portal-esque charm that this game has.

It's more an awesome concept than an awesome game or awesome implementation. Awesome concept, good implementation and in all, a really good game with innovation that is all too rare and which I'd like to see encouraged.

The Stanley Parable spoilers:
Is it ever explained where your co-workers are, what happened to them, why the mind control system switched off and why only Stanley was left behind? The endings I've found explain little, just to hint that Stanley's former happiness was a sham.

Can you do anything more on the confusion ending? There's additional steps listed which don't seem to apply which confuses me ... is that the point?

Can you disable the bomb? There seems to be hints about what buttons to press and you get 3 attempts - but given the nature of the game, it could just be trolling me.

Sometimes things come up, like "Press 'B' on your controller to continue" - did this do anything for anyone? There's a video on YouTube where someone gets beyond message apparently by just following the instructions but pressing that button on my keyboard or on my 360 pad did nout.

Why does one of the screens (at the top, above #465 I think) say 'Pirate'? It's a legit copy of the game, if it's a middle finger to people using pirate copies then it shouldn't be in my version.

I always hear population density given as an excuse as to why the US lags so far behind everyone else. Don't they have farmers and people who live in the boonies in Europe too?

My parents have a mobile home (AKA a trailer to Americans, but nice and for holidays, not shitty and for dying alone in) in The Republic of Ireland quite far from civilisation by Irish standards. The only connection we can get is a weak 3G signal and probably satellite. Perhaps the caravan site owner could get some sort of ADSL but it would be weak even before being shared between around a hundred caravans.

In my view, this site does not have broadband. Either they have a very generous definition of broadband coverage or they're weaseling out by very literally limiting this to homes - although I would presume the few actual houses in the area don't get any better.

This was never going to be anything but bullshit and sure enough...

If satellite internet counts as broadband then doesn't most of the developed world have 100% broadband coverage?

I certainly won't buy their game now. I hope others won't as well.


It looked interesting. An interesting concept perhaps combined with so-bad-it's-good gameplay. Maybe. I'm never going to know now.

Wow, TB roasts the guy on his KS...beautiful.

It appears that he didn't just unload on Wild Games and tried to sort this out in private so kudos to him for offering them more courtesy than they deserved. It became public when someone noticed the video had been taken down, which was obviously just a matter of time, then he had little choice (and zero moral implications) but to respond publicly.

Incidentally, apparently there is a petition to get DOGI off Steam - Total Biscuit has said that he does not support this.

I see they've backed down. I really hope that the publicity gives TB a boost and not Wild Games or DOGI.

(In case the joke was lost, Beamer isn't really the person I expect to be banned any day now.)

That victory mosque bullshit is why you're so clueless. I'm not going to explain to you the flaws because you're an idiot and a racist and I have no interest in giving you the courtesy of explaining further. You've shown that you are neither worth the effort or capable of understand it. You've shown it right here:

[nin will] call you names and insult you. That's a good lil sheep,

Only 8 words after the name-calling accusation, you name-call.

I've already sent it in. It's a sticky subject but I'm sure any legal issues are between Wild Games and Total Biscuit, not Blue.

Judging by certain people in other threads recently, I'm guessing not.

YouTube reviewer/critiquer Total Biscuit AKA The Cynical Brit (or Total Halibut, not sure where that name came from) has posted a new video, about Day One: Garry's Incident.

Video on YouTube

Ooof!

I would only ever have bought the game as a novelty after seeing TB's previous DOGI video and the "I broke it" video. Now, there is zero chance of me ever buying anything from Wild Games Studio, or where-ever Stéphane Woods can find future employment.

(edit: spelling)
