I should hope that everyone already owns Rogue Legacy, but if you don't, you can't beat $2.99. Best game of 2013, imho.

It SOUNDS like it was stuff that was probably originally planned but figured this would be a better marketing move. 'Jeepers! 16 FREE DLC?!?! What a bargain! Derp!"

It's not the good guys fault the bad ones are milking their customers like cattle. It makes the good guys look all the better for doing the right thing. They're just playing the hand they were dealt. When it's that easy to look better than your competitor, why the hell not?

Played, died 3x, deleted. Not my cup of tea.

One of the other PS+ games this month, Steamworld Dig, is holding my attention though. A mix of digging and metroid stuff. Pretty cool.

I bought Steamworld Dig on PC. Very good game. I think I played through to the end.....maybe just right at the end. Can't remember. I also downloaded it, plan on playing it on vita as well.

/damn, had a super sweet run going and messed up....was hard to come by HP.... roid rage, maggie, common cold, placenta, guppys paw - activate, contract "wealth but at what cost", daddy long legs (best passive in the game so far), ring worm, rotten meat, rotten baby, mysterious liquid.

//NOOOO!!! Died with literally one more hit on mom. Had a cool build, but no strength+ through the whole thing, tons of hearts, just took to long to kill bosses: prayer card, luck up pill, pinky eye, magic scab, started basement 2 and it said "curse of the maze" (HA! GENIUS!), placenta, stigmata, match book, 3 dollar bill, old bandage, ball of bandages, goat head, heart, my reflection.

Picked this up as part of PS+. Only played for a little bit, but it looks to be the same great fun the original was. Noticed there were new monsters and some kind of new gambling device (I'm assuming) that ate my coins with no perceivable reward.

There is a machine that says "Donations" at the top. I put 8 coins in it and it jammed....I then bombed it and got 5 back.

I believe the donation is progressive and carries over on each playthrough and unlocks things after certain amounts are donated. But it appears to jam randomly.

I keep hearing about how great this is. Watching game play vids, I can't really tell what kind of game it is. RPG-puzzler-plaformer? You play with a controller, no?

It's a straight up 2 stick shooter. Think roguelike+smashtv+zelda w/ random power-up drops. not really rpg. Not every run will be successful because of randomness, but getting very skilled can make every run productive. Let's just say it rewards skill and luck equally. controller, yes, but I prefer the keyboard.

update: just beat mom, w/ a interesting build. the possibilities for crazy builds in this thing is insane w/ some of the new powerups.

update2: bible run, what what??!?! Mom's heart down.

Played for a while today, then fired up the Vita and grabbed it for later tonight. I did try controller support, it recognized my xbox360 controller, just had to select it (it said it didn't but it did see it).

I actually prefer keyboard use over controller.....I dunno, maybe I will play with it some more. Tonight with the Vita will be very telling.

The game is damn hard. For anyone that has put ANY time into the previous games, this one plays like +game7 or about there. I haven't gotten to mother yet.

Rooms are over sized so it scrolls, there are tiny rooms, split rooms, etc. It is very well done. Going to put a TON of time into this one.

Bought for pc, and I would have purchased on ps store if they didn't give it away the second it was avail.

Playing this right now and probably nothing else for at least a week. The original BoI sneaky crept into my Top 10 games of all-time. Really digging the new challenge.

Can't put my finger on it but something is wrong, movement? or view? or bob? ... somethings definitely off.

That was my first thought. All the models are running with sticks up their asses.

I believe the video states the animations are stock CryEngine placeholders. This is a concept video guys, pre-alpha stuff. It's not going to look great, or even good. They just want to give an impression of how it could be. They absolutely have to nail the space sim part of it. I hope the FPS and other parts are just diversions from the grind. If they pull off the diversions competently, and the space sim very well, it's going to be a good game. But I'm an optimist.

I hope Roberts can pull it off.

10 years = $1,798.80 in fees monthly

10 years = $1,558.80 in fees 6 months at a time

The thing about that is, when I played wow, it took up so much time that I didn't buy/play as many other games.

A fairer comparison would be comparing it to how much a given player spent on other games in 10 years.


I did the math on my time in WoW exactly once. I spent 18% of ALL THE TIME from January 2005 to May 2009 playing WoW. That's 4-5 hours a day for 4 years. Jesus. I don't regret a second of it. That game, man. what a ride.

TotalBiscuit writes a very eloquent blog post on GG.
You know what's funny about this, is that TB was very neutral when this all started. Right up until the anti-gg side decided to attack him for being so.

Goddamit TB. You used to be cool! Where does he get off telling people that thier personal relationships are somehow evidence that they're corrupted or unethical? I might punch someone that said that to me. It's uncalled for and a grave insult.

"Appears to damn chummy?" That's not evidence, it's innuendo. I'm not convinced.

That's not true. Everyone says they want ethical journalists. It's not what everyone actually wants.

And you can see as much in the coverage of #GG.

I denounce death threats. Whenever I see this come up among GGers, I never see a guy who says 'someone should send her a death threat' or 'X got a death threat, that's great, maybe it'll shut him up'. Find me the prominent outspoken GG supporter defending death threats, or encouraging them, as opposed to denouncing them.

Yet how many times is GG reported on as 'the group of people who send death threats to women because they hate women' by the media?

How ethical is that?
o

It's ethical because they're reporting the news and those people have the loudest voices. It's not unethical to report what people say. It's not the media's job to ignore the loudest most offensive voices. That's your job, sir edit:(or, ma'am.). Take some responsibility about what news outlets to trust. If the loudest voices were GG's denouncing the acts of the assholes then that might get some play as well. If you think the media is unfair, let them know with words and actions.

#GG is still relevant as long as there is rampant corruption in game journalism.

How many of the articles linked to under the umbrella of GamerGate here are about game journalism, or even about games? I'm all for talking about corruption in game journalism.

But we don't seem to be getting articles about it, or discussions about it.

There's no discussion about it because there's no discussion to have. Everyone wants ethical journalists, there's no debate there. It's a truism. Since there's no debate about WHAT GG's want (ethical journalism), the other side is looking for your means of achieving that goal, and because of the assholes and what they do, the conception of what that is, based on the tactics employed and words coming out of your mouth is censorship. If that's not what you want, then please start telling people this, because that's what they think.*

edit: HA! my first ever concern troll.

Half the time I wonder if news sites make this shit up.

Anonymous "victim."
Anonymous "perps."
No official complaint to the authorities to back up the story.

News places used to be somewhat nuetral, reporting on the events without spin. These days news places use any event to push their political agenda. I would not put it past them to make up stories to push their agendas.

There was never a good old days. The media has always pushed what will sell or get clicks. Nothing has changed there. Neutrality is a different issue entirely.

How can you tell which side they're pushing? Both sides of an issue use the same evidence as proof of bias. There's almost nothing to go on. Besides, there's a wide gulf between pushing a political agenda, and providing what creates revenue. Sure, sometimes the agenda is what creates the revenue, aka a "brand", (Fox News, HuffPo), but that's more like preaching to the choir than an active attempt to exert influence. I just don't buy it.

For the most part, I think most places report the news (what, when, where?) well, and that includes Fox news and MSNBC. It's their commentary (why?) I can't stand. Make up your own mind about which outlets to trust. You only have access to literally all of them.

Who cares about if someone screwed someone else and, if all that's true, suffer the rightful professional consequences. It's not an indictment of the media. It's a stupid thing that's, quite frankly, none of my fucking business and we're all worse off for having been exposed to it.

What these fucktards are doing is deplorable but don't these idiots realize that by giving voice and by extension, fame to these people, they prolong the problem?

Stop putting this shit all over the net, on the news, giving a voice to this extreme minority and 'threats' will stop.

Why don't you go ahead and ask Blue to take this story and thread down, because "journalists" and not "assholes" are the problem.

The 9xx series SLI voltage bug is not fixed yet. Their driver team seems stretched beyond capacity if they didn't see this type of bug before release. All they had to do was put two 9xx cards into a PC and check voltages in SLI. How could that slip through?


link me, sir. I haven't heard of this bug and a cursory google search didn't find me anything. thanks!

That's awesome, the first game still has a pretty large community and is a blast to play.

Verno, did you play this game with a keyboard or a game pad?

I tried to get into this game, but just cant get past the crappy slow controls. So, that has kind of killed this game for me.

That's how I feel about it. I've tried to play this game 3 or 4 times, but I just can't get over how unresponsive it all is. That said, not having stupid GFWL to deal with could make future attempts more palatable.

controller sounds reasonable. If i had to choose one control method for a space sim/3rd person/fps combo, I would pick a controller too.

If the servers are down, the "Start" button on the menu will be red. If it isn't, then you're connected.

We should direct the vitriol of both sides of this argument to where it belongs. The manufacturers of the underpowered consoles are to blame for this. Beth is just trying to sell a game and this is one way they are choosing to maximize sales. They know they are alienating certain markets and that's a business decision. You can't make everyone happy. Really though, do you think they want to be capped at 30fps? Hell no.
