Way to perpetuate the gamer stereotype there, RDR studio.

Depends where they were going to market the game. In Japan, dating sims like Love Plus, sell quite nicely and could have been a good move for them and XBox adoption there.

I'm still on Snow Leopard. I haven't really seen the need to upgrade yet.

Ditto.

Technically, I don't think I can upgrade to Lion, even if I wanted to. I have a 2007 iMac... and I read somewhere something about Lion doesn't support the older Core 2 Duos. I'm pretty sure Mountain Lion will definitely out of reach. (Not that I care)

Well according to the article the officially supported Macs are:

iMac (mid 2007 or later)
MacBook (13-inch Aluminum, 2008), (13-inch, Early 2009 or later)
MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid-2009 or later), (15-inch, 2.4/2.2 GHz), (17-inch, Late 2007 or later)
MacBook Air (Late 2008 or later)
Mac Mini (Early 2009 or later)
Mac Pro (Early 2008 or later)
Xserve (Early 2009)

So I guess it depends when your Mac was made as to will it work. I'm guessing it will be available through the OSX app store (possibly only there) and will be able to tell you if you can use it (or not show up if you can't use it).

I also think it will only be available through the OSX app store because it will help prevent people from needing to ask "Will my mac run this?"

So, Game of Thrones... any redeeming qualities at all, or did the reviews basically get it right?

I have to admit, even with the mediocre reviews the premise is still intriguing enough to tug at me.

While off topic, the whole Game of Thrones question does remind me of that video I saw on youtube...

Those responsible for making sure the uninterruptible power supplies were not interrupted have been sacked.

Considering this is Valve, I would hope they would be moved to the Aperture Science Enrichment Center for testing purposes...

Hey Steam,

If you can't handle it; If you aren't going to do everything that is required to run a store, then maybe you shouldn't be running a store?

Never seen a city/town wide black out before? Same thing, or do you tell every store that doesn't have a big back up generator for those rare times the same thing?

How much did games like Amnesia, Bastion and Minecraft cost to make?

These games were great and sold great but as far as I know, they didn't cost millions upon millions to make. Just because you can spend millions on something doesn't mean that you need to, and there is a thing of too many people on a task.

Haven't bought many games lately and while I can't say much about the console side of it (haven't bought a console game for myself in over a year...), all my Windows games have been pretty much from the different indie bundles that keep coming out.
While not every game in each bundle is great or something I would play, there is at least 1+ per bundle it leaves me with more games then I can play.
Also there are the Steam sale bundles which also means more games for cheap. Buy in bulk and don't have to worry about new games for a while so my purchases drop heavily after bundles happen (indie and Steam bundles)

I think the prequel/remake is out on dvd now (or very soon), but sadly it didn't get very good reviews.



I saw it and honestly, it was bad. It is a prequel, not a remake and not a good one either. One of the things they didn't understand when making this movie was that the Thing wasn't shown on screen much originally not because it was hard for the effects, but that it helped add to the feel of the movie. In this prequel the Thing is on screen almost a third of the movie, and obviously CGI which just kills it. Less is more in this kind of movie, less really is more.

As good as an idea I think bundling games in this manner is for Indies, I'm still more inclined to buy my Indies on Steam daily deal sales for 2 to 4 bucks a piece

I prefer these bundles since they are more of a random grab bag. I know if it wasn't for them, I would never have played games like The Binding of Isaac.

I'm wondering if they have finally corrected the issue with the music links. I emailed them about it like 2 days ago and still nothing. One of the albums is a dead link for both the mp3 version as well as the flac version. Another album is one the second half of the album, tracks 7 thru 14 I think. All in all,a very poorly staffed bundle that I really wouldn't recommend.

I was a late comer to this one. Fun SP, but would love to do some MP.

My indie GOTY is The Binding of Isaac.

If you want to try multiplayer, you can hit up my Steam ID (slashimus).

Actually, it would be cool to get some Bluesnewsers together for some multiplayer at some point. (If we can drag them away from Skyrim...)

I have been considering getting The Binding of Isaac...I hear good things about it...but not its performance.

While I'm not playing Skyrim (I'm playing Fallout New Vegas still...) I'd be willing to try multiplayer when time permits it. My steam name is my Bluesnews name if you feel like trying with me. Be warned though, haven't played Sanctum in a few months so will be rusty

Fuck. you.

Oh, but because they expect to sell twice as many games will cost half as much!

Wait, they AREN'T going to discount the games?

Actually, game prices will be going up by 20% when the new xbox comes out.

I remember when PSX games were $40 new...

...

...

Granted I also remember my Sega Master System games being like $100+ (here in Canada in like the mid-late 80's)

Sweet!

I followed these guys on Facebook and pre-ordered the original almost immediately. Game played great at launch and just got better and better as they added to it.

Multiplayer is a blast as well.

My only slight concern is: "bringing the next version to console players..."

That worries me slightly... Uneasy

From what I remember, there really wouldn't have been a issue with porting the first one over to consoles as it is. Its based on the Unreal engine which is easily tuned to consoles and it even supports controllers out of the box. A quick port (more or less)

Granted, lets see if it gets dumbed down or notn (hopefully not).

On a side note, never played it multiplayer besides with one friend (who would be beside me). Don't normally trust random games of any game and only one of my friends has this game.
