Why send up satellites anyway? Launch all politicians into outer space!

Looks interesting. I love my classic (i.e. no FPS) tower defense. Also looking forward to Defense Grid 2.

System Shock? No, that's not their genre. Frictional is more into games where all you can do is run and hide, not really act and do something vs. your opponents. So, I'd love to see another System Shock or some kind of "reboot", but not by Frictional. I like my horror games, but only if I can challenge the bad guys/evil force.

I thought that Riptide was a very weak sequel to Dead Island. I like Dead Island a lot, but Riptide felt like a rushed ripoff to quickly make some $$$.

News Comments > Steam Controller Announced
45. Re: Steam Controller Announced Sep 28, 2013, 02:37 El Pit
 
This is my personal opinion: SteamOS doesn't interest me, because I won't be able to run Windows games (most likely because of DirectX) DIRECTLY on it. The gamepad doesn't interest me, because this kind of controller is the reason I don't buy consoles, so why should I use one instead of keyboard/mouse controls and turn my pc into a console by doing so? So, only their Steam machines might be of interest to me, but that depends on the price, the hardware, and whether I can run Windows on them instead of SteamOS.
It's obvious: I am not their target audience anymore. Valve, never forget: there are millions of pc gamers out there that don't like consoles. Don't scare them away by trying your best to turn pcs into consoles and by catering to the console gamers!

I liked Dead Island very much, but Riptide was a lackluster sequel. The island and the story of the original game were much better imo.

Blue, I hope you're alright, because those double postings and wrong date (NO NEED TO APOLOGISE!) give me the feeling that you're really sick. Get well soon, Blue.

When it comes to DLCs, I only care about storydriven singleplayer add-ons. Keep your skins, multiplayer, and battle arenas.

Only half of the gaming press there were backers of Fargo's 'Wasteland 2'? It should have been all of them!

You expect the guys from XBox and PS3 mags to support a pc game? Dream on!

Oh, come on. Just because it's had a long development cycle doesn't mean it won't be fantastic and amazing. Look at Duke Nukem 3D and A:CM... Oh, wait.

Duke Nukem 3D was a fantastic game. You must be talking about Duke Nukem (took) 4ever.

14. Re: SteamOS Announced Sep 23, 2013, 13:43 El Pit
 
If they can make ALL windows games run on it, I will be very interested. If it's more like "turn your pc into a console and plug in a console controller", then I have to stay with Windows. But that's just my decision and opinion.

EDIT: Just read it. This won't be the case. To play Windows games, I will have to start one computer with windows and stream it to another pc running Steam OS. So, sorry, but not interested right now. This thing could and SHOULD evolve, though.

EDIT2: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! There it is: a hideous console controller next to the cat in the picture. Keyboard and mouse or GO AWAY! Not only cats love mice, you know.

Got me worried there for a bit Blue.

Me, too. I was really afraid something terrible had happened. Good to know it was just a misunderstanding.

I coined a new phrase after seeing that movie. When something is REALLY bad, it is "Tara-Reid-able". Mwahaha

Yes, Tara's performance is surely Oscar worthy.

Guys, I just watched Sharknado again. This is a 10/10. Brilliant filmmaking, but it definitely lacks 3D. Screenplay, acting, visual fx - it's truly a masterpiece. Buy the blu and lots of booze, invite some friends to come over, and don't forget to get drunk BEFORE starting the movie. It's The Asylum's best movie up to date and definitely better than Pacific Rim (both have memorable characters and a great screenplay, though).

I'm looking forward to Sharknado II or even Dinado (or Tordino?). Laugh2 Laugh

Sad that boxing has been rigged for decades. Wrestling has the same level of legitimacy.

Boxing is definitely NOT pro wrestling! There is no "screenplay", boxing bouts are not acting classes. But yes, there have ALWAYS been shady decisions and fixed fights. For example, one judge (CJ Ross) scored the fight of "Money" Mayweather vs. "Canelo" Alvarez a draw, which was absolutely outrageous, because Money easily won the fight by six of even seven rounds (as the other judges scored it correctly). Ross stepped down a few days after the fight. So, yeah, the mob still has its fingers in boxing, but so it does in a lot of other sports.

I was under the understanding that it was uncut in Germany?

Just checked it out: yes, the console version seems to be uncensored in Germany.

Germans get a special edition, where every car will be either a Mercedes, a BMW, or a Porsche. And you won't be allowed to drive over civilians, cannot shoot anybody, and you'll be living peacefully with your wife, two kids, and your dog in a pink house.
It'LL be more like Grand Sims Auto I.
