I still remember Cubeworld, god what a disappointment that was. It wasn't on Steam's early access but same principles apply.

There is certainly something amusing about Derek Smart of all people calling Star Citizen a pipe dream.

As was mine.

Ok? No one said it wasn't.

As I recall Derek Smart actually likes Steam, he abuses the moderation privileges to silence critics.

Not sure what you are debating. Shit is still shit.

I'm not debating anything and the text of the post is pretty self explanatory. I think it's shit but maybe someone else doesn't, people keep buying his games somehow.

Yeah I've got major franchise fatigue with these games too. AC4 I was pretty much going through the motions when off the Blackdaw. Didn't pick up Unity, no plans to get this or to bother with the series going forward without major revisions to underlying mechanics.

Free or $60, 25 yrs ago or now, a shit game is a shit game.

Wasn't there a time a few years back he was whining that they wouldn't put his games on Steam?

*shrug* free is free. Personally I think there are far better ways to spend ones time than playing terrible Derek Smart games but perhaps someone finds some value in this. I doubt it but hey whatever, no one is making me download a copy so I'm happy.

I didn't love Braid to be honest but this looks pretty interesting. I need some games to play on the consoles, they're just gathering dust these days so maybe I'll pick this up.

Understand when I say attention "whore" I by no means using that term as slander against her gender; I view her as an attention whore as I am a New York Pizza whore.

Absolutely and there's nothing wrong with that. I don't think anyone is really having a debate over these things either, its just causing polarization and conflict. What frustrates me is how one sided it is, people don't give the industry any credit. The gaming industry is still young but despite that has grown significantly in terms of gender specific offerings and representation over the past 10 years.

People also seem to ignore other forms of media and marketing where gender tropes are even worse, many of those industries where women are in positions of power now even. Like movies and television, gaming is a business first and foremost so companies are giving the consumer what they desire. That doesn't mean the industry or its audience are flawed, people often seek out unrealistic and exaggerated entertainment, women are no strangers to that either.

I made your chili recipe on Saturday Blue, it was with my girlfriend and another couple I know through work. It was really good but came out much hotter than I anticipated. Next time I will not throw that extra chipotle in just because I want to get rid of it, haha. I was worried it would be too much for the others but I kept the wine flowing and everyone was either too drunk to notice or just genuinely enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

I got to the butcher late on Friday so they were almost out of everything so I ended up using a mix of meats (ground pork, ground beef and some veal). I threw in a bit of brown sugar as well.

2) On game day release, the servers will be overloaded, "we didn't foresee this many people wanting to play our game despite how many people pre-ordered it"

I don't know, do you really see this selling that well? Word of mouth on it has been pretty tepid.

Yes, Verno, you've figured it out. I am Beamer's sock puppet, or he is mine, or something. Better add me to your list too. Can't have any disruptions in the echo chamber.

Interesting how I didn't use any names and yet that connection was made Sure, I will toss you into the "echo chamber" of my massive ignore list, all 2 people that are on it. To be honest your frequent diatribes were getting kind of tiresome anyway, have a nice life.

I've never really had an issue with Steam Support, the few tickets I've had were answered within a business day and resolved without issue.

Greenmangaming's support on the other hand is terrible. They tried to screw me on a refund (their fault) which took 8 back and forths to resolve. It only ended in my favor because I refused to accept their BS reasoning and threatened a chargeback and complaint to their payment processor. That was a real wake up call to the price of cheap games there.

The book (Under the Skin) is worth a read, although surprisingly (to me) far less surreal.

I haven't read it, but I understand that it lays out the whole back story and explains things a lot more explicitly.

Watch Donnie Darko recently for the first time recently, and I love that movie for a lot of the same reasons. There's something surreal and intricate going on, but you're only seeing a slice of it, and multiple viewings deepen your understanding of it.

That's how I feel about Momento, its by far Christopher Nolan's best film. I've seen it half a dozen times and I always get something new out of it.

I'm actually going to take a crack at your chili on the weekend since we're supposed to get another foot of snow here. I want to try weapons grade but my girlfriend doesn't have my tolerance for hot food so we're going to do a few jalapenos and some chipoltle as a compromise. She reminded me to pick up some pitas on the way home and we can use the chili leftovers in wraps.

2 hours to learn a game isn't much of a time investment and it really depends on the genre. It is really hard to make a game with depth if any user can "learn" it in 20 minutes. The best games are smart about how they unfold mechanics gradually over time.
