Ricochet: Source

Play Ricochet with the new Steam Power Glove peripheral. The power is in your hands! Our entire building has been working on this for some reason!

92-Year-Old World War II vet avoids eviction by daughter.

I can't believe that story. So the guy give his daughter power of attorney (he's 92 after all) and she uses it to transfer the deed of his house into her name and starts eviction proceedings??!! UNBELIEVABLE. So they crowdfund buying the house back from her, WHICH SHE GOT FOR FREE. I guess it's legal and all, but still, there oughta be a law against that.

This is why King Lear should be required reading in school.

I like Big Picture mode, it's easy to use and its sort of dumb that Microsoft never got implemented desktop control. I can plug in my laptop to the tv and sit on the couch for hours, huzzah.

Not really sure what a Steambox will bring to the room though, since thats pretty much what I have going already. And we know they fired all their hardware people so I don't expect any particular innovation. Sounds like they're just trying to get in a wedge with Shield and Ouja.

I may or may not have borrowed things from my friends on the internet before but since I got Netflix it hasn't been worth the hassle. Same with games, why bother when it can be had for $5 or as part of a bundle for $1?

Well it took over 50 years to finally get rid of the Comics Code Authority so I wouldn't hold your breath.

Also I guess Hollywood had a form of this called the Production code that also lasted 50 years. They couldn't say words like "virgin".

Without a doubt, eight controllers at once makes Xbox a must buy!

You know back in the day we all played Golden Eye on 19 inch TVs in four player split screen. Now the screen real estate has more than tripled in most peoples homes (assuming 46inch), so why not have eight player split screen? Everyone gets a Brady Bunch square.

Also, is it just me, or are Humble Bundles the new Steam Sales? I have bought maybe one or two games on Steam all year, but have bought the Humble Bundle at least once a month this year. Confused

Oh man, I've picked up so many Humble Bundles even $5 is too much for a game these days. Talk about backlog. Just cleared Hard Reset last night, picked that up from a Royale bundle in February...2012.

News Comments > Mighty No. 9 Kickstarted

For a 100 bucks I'm sure they'd be happy to burn of a steam directory unloader and write Mighty 9 on the front with a sharpy. They probably don't want to bother making a full packaged product though if they can help it. Hey, maybe there's a business opportunity here. I see Two Player Productions has found a niche in the kickstarter world, maybe someone with a 3D printer and a laserjet printer could provide boxed game services.

The demo was a lot of fun, looking forward to picking this up.

Origins was easily one of the best couch coop games of the generation, destroying Mario. I somehow got through the Living Undead bonus level and even on the high ends the difficulty is tuned just right thats it's exhilarating and not frustrating (looking at you super meat boy).

On that water slide loop de loop, what happens if you don't get velocity to clear the loop? Do they have to cut it open?

Assuming one wouldn't pay $125, is CKII worth the $5.80? I already got EUIII from a Gala bundle and the rest of the games I probably wouldn't even add to my Steam account.

What I really mean is, if I haven't even played EUIII yet (and won't for awhile), is CKII special enough to be thrown on top of the pile too?

Lets fix that statement:

“It is profitable for us when you go buy something instantly, the instant 'gotcha' feel, that 'we took noobs for a ride' high,” he said, “however after the honeymoon of nubs spending was over, we were no longer seeing much profit and want to appear like we care with this new update.


This must be true. The game has been out for a year and a third nearly, and they're just now noticing what everyone has been complaining about since day 1?


Still haven't gotten this but if they get around to finally making D3 correctly I'd be happy to pick it up on sale one day.

My guess is someone at Valve headquarters was rooting around the Steam backend and rediscovered the Greenlight program which had been sitting abandoned for months after everyone wheeled their desk over to L4D3.

One week later, oh yeah, here's a stress test(okay?).

So far there's just too much overlap inbetween console cycles, so the only big game on launch for the PS4 is Killzone. It will be interesting to see how the gameplay compares between generations, like in AC4 for instance.

On a side note, thanks to your unbridled cyniscism I'm not sure I'll ever get to Kinect curb stomp somebody in Gears of War 7. Is this the world you wanted?

Imo, it's good for some mindless fun but it is underwhelming overall. Particularly in the story/writing department.

I disagree, I think the religious Crusade Dark Age element was a great update to the boiler plate Dracula is magic endless resurrection crap that was going on in the 2D games. SoTN is an amazing game but it really has no story to speak of.

In Lord of Shadows, I liked the Tolkeinesque idea of the changing of Eras. Before there had been a society that made the Colossi, and maybe before that was the age of magic that Pan was from. The current Era was the Crusaders trying to fight the plague (in this case monsters, not disease). The game ends in a different era entirely (Modern).

The end game boss is the culmination of the fears of the current era, but in getting there you journey through all the wreckage of days past.
