This isnt really a 'steam' thing it's just another application on the steam store.

The title makes it sounds like its an integrated feature which is mislading

Actually I think the inclusion of the word "utility" makes is sound completely unlike an integrated feature.

Kind of out of the blue:

DOD aims to scrap A-10 to fund F-35.

The Super Tucano would make a great flight sim subject!

And the first story suggests Defense Contractor Tycoon.

I would totally buy SR4 purple Violator replica. :D

I know they gave some out to the press for 3. I heard that based on their weight, they tore easily.


Well to be fair, they do work at desks a lot. Oh wait... you meant the violators' weight?

Backer-exclusive documentaries and updates were part of the commitment Double Fine made with the Double Fine Adventure. Making the updates public may have reduced the Internet hate, but would have been breaking a promise to their backers. I really hope you aren't suggesting Double Fine should break their promises.

Not at all. I'm just suggesting making a couple of public updates along the way may have been a way of preventing it coming to the point where
he said: "That was really a lesson for us, learning that even though our backers are really well informed, the rest of the world hadn't really heard of us since the Kickstarter happened."

Apologies for melding the interviews and the op ed stories, obviously this caused a problem with the comments when they were separated.

Was it nearly as good as Scandal's Warrior?

One of my pet ways of annoying the crew is by turning various moments into musical interludes, so I actually did sing bits of that while we are playing. I regularly make MrKawfy crazy by singing Black Betty any time someone says Bouncing Betty.

I'm sure Bats' regret that the game is always full is eased knowing this.

Nice Blue - I always try and get into your game - you have a solid 4 players. hahahahahah Jealous.

Sorry, yeah, we are quite consistent... we have only played these four players together in co-op since we rolled them up, and always as a foursome except for a point during a boss battle where our gunzerker lagged out, and has been a little behind on XP ever since.

This is becoming like a fetish for you, isn't it, Blue?


I think it is... it used to be the BBC writing NASA, but to have the mouthpiece for Xbox LIVE not respect their own oddball capitalization scheme seems even weirder. He even calls himself Xbox Live's Major Nelson. Weird.

when the Warrior dropped, and a good time was had by all.

Did they finally fix it where some of that awesome loot is no longer under the warriors body, and you can actually get everything?

Seems that way -- I remember that from the first time I soloed the Warrior, but there were no issues last night.

Also, RIP Ralph.

and an incredible catalog of first-hand anecdotes from the golden age of baseball.

A lot of these "first-hand anecdotes" from baseball's old timers tend to simply not be true.

You'll notice that I made separate mention of his knowledge of the game from the point about the anecdotes, as they are two different areas. It's like the old saying about not letting the facts get in the way of a good story.

From his Daily News obit:

He once met the actress Jamie Lee Curtis at the ballpark. Ralph, in his courtly way, told Jamie Lee that there had been a time when he was a younger man when he’d dated her mother, the actress Janet Leigh.

At which point, according to Ralph, Jamie Lee leaped into his arms and yelled, “Daddy, I’ve finally found you!”

That's a fake story going around.

Protip: Things that read like news stories but are listed under the "Link" section here are usually satire. The Borowitz report is an Onion-style site now owned by the New Yorker.

I cracked up at the part about sweetening her up. I also liked the U2 on the radio for stereotype value.

If you live there (I have never been and have no desire to even get close to the cess pool)

At least you're open-minded on the topic.

The square? Yea, would never even dream of going there. Are there things I want to see in NY? Sure, but it is pretty far down on the list.

The question: Is there anything there that someone who lives in NY needs to go to in that area? Don't people avoid it?

Well, it's the junction of three major midtown thoroughfares (Broadway, Seventh Avenue, and 42nd Street), so it's sort of smack in the middle of things, and how Broadway veers westward as you travel uptown makes it an efficient path in many cases. People avoid the area because it's touristy, but there are tourists everywhere, so if you need to pass through Times Square, you do it.

The cesspool comment is out of date, however, though maybe you didn't mean it how I'm reading it. There was a time when the place was a dirty den of porno theaters, peep shows, and assorted crime not limited to drugs and prostitution. But nowadays its all cleaned up and commercialized, so if you have a desire to see a Broadway show or eat in a theme restaurant, or if you need to catch a bus at the Port Authority Bus Terminal, it's a perfectly safe experience. Overly commercialized and lacking some of its former character? Definitely. Cesspool? Not at all.

Made some awesome bacon wrapped chicken cordon blue breasts last night with taters and carrots. Also yesterday made an awesome fall apart roast with carrots, garlic, snp, beer, brown sugar, and some other stuff. Removed the carrots and meat, then let the beef stock sit overnight so I could remove excess fat (wasn't enough to remove) then made a beef stock veggie soup today. Man. I love cold winter cooking.

Tonight dinner is left over pork n kraut with a bit of veggie soup and jalapeno corn bread.

Stay at home daddy day care = lots of cooking.

This is making me so damn hungry right now.

Same here, though I didn't see it until this morning, so it is conjuring up images of an unusual breakfast.

Spartacus S1 had such a complete cathartic arc, that I'm reticent to watch more for fear of spoiling what I view as perfection. Also, too: the main actor sadly passed away.

In my opinion the series got better with each season.

there was a definite drop off after andy died imo. the series carried on and concluded successfully, but i don't think it got better. i actually feel they rushed the last season; their romp through the italian boot should've been much more successful and damaging before it came to an end. you won't regret finishing the series, but at least in my case, it felt... insufficient. also i really hated the chick that took over for nevea.

I stand by my opinion for the most part, though I agree at the end the actual war part of it seemed rushed, so the last season is a little uneven. But I loved everything in between, including the odd prequel season while they were still hoping Andy might recover. And I also have to agree about the Partridge Family move on Nevea... the new one was horrible.
