All of that doesn't take long, but when I only do it every few years, I end up stumbling through 3 million settings, trying to remember what I set where.

Did you know Firefox's sync will do all that for you?. It auto changes settings, auto downloads addons, and if the addons are well made it also remembers their config as they have some kind of cloud space to save addon data too.

I use it all the time. Install Firefox on a new pc, log into sync and Bam! My whole browser's there.

Hadn't read about these wackos before, but I had a good laugh with the videos and all those homoerotic stories. Go internet!

I'm just annoyed because they haven't shown a proper gameplay video.

Gameplay here!

I removed it myself once, but when they made it reappear I just used the GWX tool and it's worked well.

Apparently I read that Microsoft resets those regkey values up to 5 times a day for each user to make sure they can't disable the nagging, so this GWX tool has a mode where it just stays in the system tray waiting for windows to change them and changes them back immediately.

Oh my, I just saw the European price is 699 + 50 shipping. We got really screwed by exchange rates this time.

how many USB ports is the damn thing gonna take?

I ran the compat program on my PC and it just mentioned that I pass the USB part because my PC supports USB 3.0. Where did you find these specs?

A little pricy, so I'll just wait for people to start getting it and see their opinions...

Well, that was an interesting speech, especially when he talks about the different kinds of players and how each one would see and try to solve the puzzles.
I gotta admit I was amazed at the game at the start, but got frustrated at some point and never looked back. I got intrigued by what he said though, so I'm downloading it again to see if I can get any further now...

Ok, I'm a bit confused with the Mystery Games thing. I bought two, yet it doesn't tell me what games I actually got :/ I don't see any new games for download in my account. Sad panda...

They just appeared on my library. Check there. Also if you already owned them they might appear as a gift somewhere

So what happens when you buy a mystery game and you already own it?

You get it as a gift to give out.
I bought a couple of them and got Space colony HD which is cool, but I also got jade empire which is free right now on origin...

Does it just change the wheel to numbers?

No. It changes the vague responses like "agree" to exactly what the character is gonna say when you choose that option.

Oh yeah! Real sorry guys!
Now take a look at our brand new tournament with over 250k in prizes!

Looks like the apology is basically clickbait to announce that tourney that's starting next week.
I bet most pissed fans wouldn't have even read about it if that "apology" wasn't in the title.

My guess would be bots.

Yeah, I think this would explain a lot. 500k new users in 24 hours is crazy, at least seeing how steam has had such a steady growth up till now.

I'm afraid we're gonna start seeing more and more news like this from now on...

This is very probably meant for VR. What may be a barely noticeable effect in normal gaming might be the difference that makes a VR game a nausea inducing experience or not.

Well... glad it's fixed as this move sounded really shady.

Sure, it may have been accidental but no wonder people are wary after the first release fiasco. I'm glad steam refunds and reviews are there, who knows how this would have gone without them...

There's actually a second part right here in case anyone is interested

They're really good, I'm still playing through SOMA so I'm not sure if I should be watching these but it really gives you the creeps.
