Came to argue about BI, but stayed to agree about a great year in gaming. Spoiled for riches. Some of the coolest and gripping games ever.

Couldn't agree more. And with some extremely high-profile Kickstarters due on 2014, next year is looking to be pretty great already.

Diablo3 was so dissapointing, it should be included on the 2013 list as well...

Diablo 3 was released in 2012...

I really really want to play Anno 2070, but I refuse to buy games with crappy DRM. Sigh.

Left 4 Dead 2

381 hrs on record

Infected killed
128,385

Rochelle 39%

Been there, done that! Spot_left

It looks as if a few achievements have been added since my playing days. Nothing worth the trouble of installing the game again although there is an incredible amount of replay value in L4D2.

Free? A slap in the face to all those who purchased the game years ago.

If you had known that it one day would be free, would you have never purchased it?

Guide Step 1: Convince game makers to release linux ports.

Still waiting on that one.

Making progress, with Steam for Linux and a good number of Linux-supporting kickstarters.

You know, I'm REALLY looking forward to this. MOBAs are a completely underrepresented genre, and we really need more of them. We haven't had any for a long time. It's got a combination of strategy and action unmatched by any other game type. And its players are some of the most helpful and understanding of any genre. I'll be checking for updates on this several times a day.

Hahaha, awesome.

Am I the only one who has a problem with this early access bullshit? It seems many devs are jumping on to this way of development and I don't like it! I refuse to pay for an unfinished game, even at a discount. I don't get it.
I put well over 600 hours into the mod and I was so excited for the SA but this is bullshit. In this case, it isn't the price either. I want a complete game!
I'm very disappointed about this.

...then don't pay for it, and wait for the finished game?

The finished game is going to come at the same time regardless of whether they do early access or not. In DayZ's case, this may very well be never, but having early access available isn't going to change anything.

Let's just get Eternity out the door first, shall we? I am not a happy camper as it is when they're talking about adding more stretch goals this late in the development cycle. I think I'm done with KS at this point.

This late in development..? They probably haven't even hit alpha yet and the game probably isn't coming out for another year. Boggles the mind that people can complain when developers offer to make a game better. It's not like they are charging you extra. You reap all the benefits of increased funding without needing to spend another dime.

I think it's meant to be $60. I remember seeing a few kickstarters that were saying get the game for xxx when it's going to be xxx at launch. This is in part kickstarter to make the backers not feel upset. (which is bullshit because you backed it knowing a sale on the game will happen) This people bitching about pricing is horrible... $60 is the normal cost for a game these days, just get over it. We're lucky the price of games hasn't followed inflation and gone up to over $100. Also this is in part the way consumers have been breed now, as they expect and won't buy things unless they're on "sale". This causes retail costs to be inflated to adjust for the sales. Look at amazon and you can see this in about 10 items(esp tv's).

The Wasteland 2 devs are quoted as saying that the price at release will be probably be less than $60. PA was supposed to be $40 at release, I believe.

This is what's wrong with digital distribution.

Humans forget to easily.
Family and friends have been affected, I won't forget.
I remember taking moments of silence on certain days in school - I doubt they do that anymore.
Do they even do the Pledge of Allegiance anymore?

All states except five (Hawaii, Iowa, Oklahoma, Vermont and Wyoming) give time for the pledge to be recited as part of the school day.[43]

In September 2013, a case was brought before the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court arguing that the pledge violates the Equal Rights Amendment of the Constitution of Massachusetts. [44]

States I will never move to. Unreal.

The Pledge always made my skin crawl as a kid. That felt like something some totalitarian dystopia would do to brainwash its kids.

Over the last year, the browser has taken steps toward being more stable and secure.

I've found Firefox crashing more and more as time goes on. It dies about once or twice a day for me, now.

This is a sad day for boardgames. Thousands will be exposed to one of the most aggressively boring strategy games ever made, and turned off the hobby forever. Stratego could do what Monopoly failed to. Why are all the good games only on iOS and crappy websites?

Talisman is available on Steam. As a pre-release sorta thing.

Shadowrun Returns @ 55% off is a steal! (It's 55% at the moment, although it says 40% at the main page).
What's that game about? Sooo many people on my friends list have it.
I've never even heard of it before.

It was a Kickstarter game. It's a fantasy-cyberpunk isometric RPG based on the pen-and-paper RPG of the same name. There were also SNES and Sega Genesis games set in the same universe.

SSDs are gonna be like $.50/GB tomorrow and/or monday. Amazon and Newegg already have Seagate 600 240GB for $130. I paid $200 for a 250 not long ago

High-end 250GBs are still $200-250. Low-end 250s have been ~130-150 for quite a while.

I think, right? I'm not really sure where the Seagates fall. But it's kinda: Samsung 840 Pro quality: ~$1/GB for a year. Samsung 840 quality: ~$0.75/GB for a year. And then everything else is a bit cheaper than Samsung (except Intel, which is pricier). So the "low"-end non-Samsung name brands are closer to like $0.60/GB.
