I refuse to play games that require services like Steam. Tell why do I need to have additional software installed just to play? That is so fu***ng wrong!

The potential alternative we were facing when Steam first came out was NO games to play if you may remember.

Exactly. Even if you never touch Steam because you object to one or more facets of it (which is perfectly acceptable as freedom of choice is one of the greatest things about PC gaming) to my mind it is a virtually undeniable truth that the obvious viability of Steam on PC has sold publishers who might otherwise have abandoned PC gaming long ago on the idea of sticking with it and even ramping up overall releases. It has also almost certainly convinced fledgling publishers to make PC gaming their primary platform, leading to even more great indie releases on PC. I believe Steam' s benefits to the health of PC gaming are almost immeasurable.

Did anyone else notice that the insiders didn't really beat us? Phil would have placed 6th and Cris only managed to tie our winner. Me thinks they need to get more challenging insiders.
I don't see why guys are e-peening over this all the time - all it really amounts to is a glorified guessing game. You could use a Magic 8-Ball and guess as good as those who pore over stats for hours on end!

Maybe they've pulled Blur from Steam because the dev studio was shut down and Activision probably shut the MP servers down.
Steam probably did not want to get into shit about no MP.

That's crazy about Blur. I was going to post "Just buy it on Steam like I did!" before I checked to see it had been removed. My copy still works fine though.

An even better idea: Dual boot Windows and Steam OS. Given that so many home users own windows for the games...

I like this idea.

I for one care about the studio. I'm assuming they had back-ups - it would be crazy not to this day and age - but it still has to suck to lose all their hardware like that. As for living in "flood zone" if you live in a flood zone then the insurance company should not even be allowed to make flood insurance optional - charge more and cover everybody. At least that what they would do if they weren't interested in collecting your money when everything is fine but then looking for any out they can when crisis strikes.

So, the Swapper.... It has universally positive reviews. Could it be the platformer/puzzler for a guy who doesn't like platformer/puzzlers?

And while I'm in the inquisitive mood... just what is it about Euro Truck driving that makes everyone love that game so much? Is it cathartic in some way you could only understand after playing it or is everyone just fooling around? I prefer my trucks to be snuggly...

Contrary to what some have suggested I think this year's sale has been great. I've picked up lots of games for big discounts!

Guess I'm asking if GamersGate is trustworthy.

I'd say yes. I've used them quite a bit in the past and never had a problem.

Gamer's Gate is pretty low on the DRM end. Download, install, and activate throught there proprietary downloader then never use it again unless you need to re-install. Just be aware of what DRM the game itself ships with.

And YES nin, I GOT FAR CRY BLOOD DRAGON.

I just realized I STILL don't have FC Blood Dragon. Has it been on sale on Steam yet this season? (Not that the $15 normal price is all that out of reach!)

WTF PREZ?!?!?

How can you say no to this?


Well...*SNIFF!*... if I had any friends they would buy it for me but I guess I don't! Bigcry



I'll pick it up next week.

A:CM and SimCity were far and away my biggest disappointments of 2013. Rounding out my top 3 would be GTA 5 not making it to PC.

Why can't valve anticipate that when they do something like this their website store goes down do to load. Why not throw some extra capacity at the problem to prevent it from happening? Now people can't access the site to buy games.

It seems so basic yet Valve bungles this every year. Apparently a lot of people still hadn't bought L4D2 by now.

Pit Bulls have a (undeservedly) bad reputation

Their angels, until they aren't and then you want no part of an unruly Pit-Bull. That is the point. And since too many people have them like personal Honey Badgers, raising them to be bad asses, well it is what it is.

It's true, they have been bred to be more aggressive, but I have personally helped rehabilitate fighters and bait dogs into wonderful loving and docile animals, many of which we have adopted out. Not every one is a success story sadly; we've had to put down some dogs who simply could not be rehabilitated to get over their aggressiveness, but only the worst cases who repeatedly try to attack any dog they go near or ones who try to bite the workers at the shelter. As has been mentioned, the nature of these worst-case animals is to be blamed on ill-treatment and improper breeding and training, not on the breed itself.

Shadow Warrior and Rise of the Triad are extremely different. Shadow Warrior is a modern day remake of an old classic, loaded with modern day FPS mechanics. RotT on the other hand is a throwback in every sense of the word. It's old school - we're talking Little House on the Prairie, Laura-Engels-in-a-one-room-schoolhouse old school.

The game is not for me, but damn those are impressive numbers. The little guys are ever-so-slowly beginning to elbow their way in to what was once the exclusive domain of the big publishers. That is awesome.
Bohemia Interactive are long time industry veterans. Not small time cookies.

The mod was the work of one guy. I didn't realize BI is publishing the standalone version.

Lol!

I never thought to add up all my different games and see just how many I own, but I doubt I'd beat his number. His are all hardcopy, while the vast majority of my collection is digital. I probably only have about 500 CD/DVD games left. I'd be willing to bet I have more PC games than him though. Looks like his collection is largely made up of console games.

Merry Xmas everyone!

I loved that story on the pit bull who cuddles other dogs after surgery. Pit Bulls have a (undeservedly) bad reputation but in truth out of all dogs I work with pit bulls are among the most empathetic, sweet, and affectionate dogs I've seen. Treated right and properly socialized you won't find a more loyal and loving companion than a pit bull.
