I did pick up Don't Starve on the weekend instead of Dust and now I'm sorta regretting it.

I really like DS because it is so quirky. The game itself is too formulaic. The first few romps through the game (once you have a general idea of what you need to do) are really engaging, more so than other games of its type, because of the constant, CONSTANT pressure to find more food.

Why is that so hard for you to understand?????

Probably because you're dismissing many of the greatest video games ever produced, like the afformentioned Mario and Castlevania (Symphony of the Night is in my own top 5), Metroid, Contra, Actraiser, Duke Nukem, Commander Keen, Double Dragon, Flashback, Golden Axe, Mega Man, Donkey Kong Country.

If I sat next to somebody while they played Super Metroid and they looked to me and said, "hey, I don't like this," I'd probably punch them in their stupid face. I would be fully cognizant of fact that everybody is free to like and dislike what they may, but any slight against something I hold in such high regard as Super Metroid would, completely beyond my control, result in a Hulk-like rage on my part.

The need to justify and defend one's opinion, and to "enlighten" the ignorant masses of their (obvious) poor taste, permeates throughout social society. Such a dissonance as we have here often creates a situation that simply does not compute in one or both parties, and persons will feel it Their Personal Mission to see the other side brought to reason that the universe may return to normalcy. From these humble beginnings arose the mighty Flame Wars, which as we all know birthed the lowly Troll race. Were I a studious man I might endeavor to study the rise of this phenomenon.

In case anyone is interested - 'The Last Remnant' is $2.50 on GMG today. It's the rarest of animals - a JRPG on the PC, and activates on Steam.
Is it worth it?

Ironically the PC version is far superior to the 360 one as it doesn't suffer from its brutal framerate problems, and you can assemble your squads of characters entirely from Hero units (on console you could only have one Hero and the rest of your squad had to be "red shirts"). It's got an interesting combat system and some super tough battles.

But still I don't really get how a PC community can get so excited about these side-scrollers.

Because we're not all elitist idiots, and some of us grew up playing shit like Ninja Gaiden and Castlevania.

Dust isn't any more a platformer than Half-Life is; combat is the focus. Think of it like a 2D Devil May Cry: hordes of baddies and you, the lightning-fast sword-wielding protagonist.

When, exactly, are you saying the #2 seller on steam is going to be under $15? Define "a few months".

If it follows the same course 2033 did, then it will.

Awful convenient the massive push against cafes following the opening of a bunch of casinos here in Ohio. Truth be told I haven't noticed such an alarming concentration of them as I noticed while in North Carolina: in NC one cannot piss with hitting both a Subway and a "sweepstakes" parlour.

I'm not too concerned about FOV (in a singleplayer game), but this shit here is a huge no no.

Call of Juarez isn't fucking Avatar.

"Every generation, as you've probably heard, has grown approximately 30%," he said. "So this generation is about 300 million units. Most industry experts think the next generation will get upwards of about 400 million units. That's if it's a game console, over the next decade."

Moreover, Medhi thinks the general entertainment capabilities of Xbox One and PS4 will more than double their selling power. "We think you can go broader than a game console, that's our aim, and you can go from 400 million to potentially upwards of a billion units [Update: just to clarify, he's talking about all next gen consoles combined here]. That's how we're thinking of the Xbox opportunity as we go forward."

Even so, still a ridiculous claim. Nongamers are not going to rush out and buy a predominately gaming device on which to do... whatever it is all that social media shit/TV shit Sony/MS are playing up.

I'm going to file a patent for KPC: Kinect-Proof Camo, the only patented full-body camouflage designed explicitly for use in concealing viewers from Kinect's cold, emotionless sensor systems!

This game really isn't anything new.

You're right, between Chivalry and War of Roses there is just such a supersaturation of multiplayer medieval melees. Lazy fucking developers need to grow some fucking balls and make a modern military shooter, instead.

The cost makes no sense for anyone. I'm sorry, but inflation hasn't gone up thirty fucking percent in the past year. What's a 760 going to cost, a mere $400?

Immediately after installing this, Windows was freezing up for seconds at a time. Rebooted. Less than an hour later, system hangs.

What the fuck does WHQL even mean.

I've never cleaned my lenses beyond wiping them on my shirt, and this is years of use and not casing them out of service. How about not picking them up by the lenses???
