Anyone playing multi? By myself, it's pretty much unplayable.

Going to try to pick up Crysis 2 for this for my next upgrade....

Confirmed, it is a steamworks game.
44  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Steam Deals Thread: Holiday Sale! on: December 29, 2011, 01:32:46 AM
Anyone have a coupon that would get a discount for Witcher 2? I have been waiting for it to go on sale, but it hasn't happened yet...
45  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Defense Grid (and other tower defense games) on: December 07, 2011, 12:52:35 AM
I stayed up WAY too late playing OMD last night. If you don't have it, definitely a great time to get it during the current sale.
46  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Steam Deals Thread: Orcs Must Die! Sale + King Arthur Sale on: December 07, 2011, 12:43:12 AM
OMD is pretty awesome. If you have even a passing interest in tower defense I would give it a try. Note: I had tried one of the other TD/FPS hybrids (Sanctum?) and it didn't gell for me, but I've had a blast with OMD. It's a steal at the sale price.
47  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Biggest surprise hit/disapointment of the year 2011 on: December 05, 2011, 05:48:00 PM
Really more PC specific, but my biggest disappointment was Sword of the Stars 2. I'm a huge fan of SOTS1, but the release of 2 was nothing more than a glorified alpha. It's been roughly a month, and the game is only now approaching something that should be released.... but it's still got a LOT to go.

Surprise hit? Bastion. Dark Souls is also pretty darn good, but I haven't gotten to the 'hook' bit with Dark Souls like I did with Demon Souls yet. Plus, DS pretty much delivers what I would expect, so not so much a surprise...

Might be a day one purchase now... the video has me really interested.

Are there any other must have mods alongside OOO, or is OOO a good one stop shop for modding? 
50  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Sword of the Stars 2: Lords of Winter on: October 29, 2011, 10:58:03 PM
To confirm, yes, this is not the state software should be in if you're charging for it. It's a beta, pure and simple. A lot of stuff is obviously not linked in, a lot of stuff is absent. Manual is a joke.

At this point I really feel screwed. I wanted to support Kerberos, so I went ahead and got the game. At this point, though, I'm out 40 bucks for a beta that might never be finished. Maybe they have been having some money/employee issues, but at this point, honestly, that just makes me feel more screwed. You've used the goodwill of your fans to make your payday.

The game shows potential, but at this point that's all I can say about it. Until they resolve this mess, no one else should purchase it. And unfortunately for Kerberos and Paradox, they have to weather the shitstorm this release is going to do to both their reputations.
51  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Sword of the Stars 2: Lords of Winter on: October 29, 2011, 04:49:46 AM
Now downloading an update via Steam, will see if this is the 'real' release.
52  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Sword of the Stars 2: Lords of Winter on: October 29, 2011, 02:31:38 AM
Confirmed, however as yet no "official" response on the game forums (that I saw, anyway). The steam build is an old beta version. Not sure on the GG version, but since I purchased it on Steam... bleh. Kinda sucks. I was hoping to give it a go. The little bit that works is pretty cool, and promising for the full version, but my steam copy keeps crashing.

Hopefully it will be resolved soon.
53  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Guild Wars 2 on: September 30, 2011, 07:28:42 PM
Anyone still active in the guild, or is everyone waiting for GW2 to go active? If anyone is still around, and has mats/money/time to help with filling the Hall of Monuments please let me know.
54  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Xenogears, Vagrant Story, and more coming to PSN on: August 22, 2011, 12:24:11 AM
Are Chrono Trigger/Chrono Cross on PSN?
55  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Mystery GOG countdown (now general GOG discussion) on: August 17, 2011, 04:05:27 AM
Anachronox needs to come to GoG, also.
56  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Steam Daily Deal: Universe at War: Earth Assault + Zeno Clash on: July 16, 2011, 10:15:42 PM
Good RTS. Definately worth a fiver.
57  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Impulse Weekend Sale 6-16-2011 on: June 16, 2011, 11:54:28 PM
SotS for 6 bucks is another no brainer.  thumbsup
58  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Steam Daily Deal 6-16 Trino + FEAR Collection + Indie Packs on: June 16, 2011, 11:31:40 PM
I had been wanting to pick up Atom Zombie Smasher since playing the demo a couple months back. Was steep when it was 20 bucks, for 10 and the pack it was a no brainer.
59  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Sword of Stars 2 plus several other games announced by Paradox on: May 28, 2011, 12:54:40 PM
Didn't see it mentioned.... is there a release date set yet for SoTS2?

What about something for those of us who actually got ALL of the shards?

you get a kick in the balls.  as soon as you fire up the game and it detects that you did that a remote signal is sent out, summoning the Sony Ball Kicking Ninja Strike Squad to your home.  they're an elite team of ninjas, you'll never see them coming until you are rolling on the ground in pain.

Nah, a signal is sent out, but then Sony just gives your credit card information to hackers and you have to fight identity fraud.  retard
61  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: [GOG} The Witcher Enhanced Edition $4.99 on: May 10, 2011, 10:50:44 PM
Ok. If you don't have this, buy it now. Only reason I can think of to hold off would be if you wanted to tie this to your Steam account (and no doubt, with all the Steam sales sometime in the next year, it will be on sale on Steam for five bucks or under).... but seriously, if you haven't played this, buy it now. It's one of the best games I've played on any platform.
62  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Darkspore on: May 06, 2011, 12:14:28 AM
After spending some more time with it I'd have to agree with the above... although there is some of that loot collection here like D2/Torchlight the real appeal of the game is setting up the heroes. Something to note, not only do you have the flexibility with the individual heroes, but the real game is setting up a team of 3 out of the 25 heroes and their variations and the combo's between the 3 and the other members of the team (if you're playing online). Looking for that synergy and finding cross team or in-team combinations that are effective is cool.
63  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Darkspore on: April 26, 2011, 10:58:45 PM
I played the beta demo on the last day and was impressed enough with it to order it. More updates when the download finishes.

(Side note: for Steam preorders, is there a way to get steam to autodownload as soon as an item releases?)

Diablo 2 lite is about right, from my run with it. Kinda scratches the same itch as Torchlight. Will this replace D3? Heck no, but with the right support, it could fill that niche well until Blizzard finishes D3.... whenever that might be...
64  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: [beamdog.com] Precursors for 7.49 on: March 28, 2011, 04:07:35 AM
How is the ship combat in the game? Some of the reviews I've seen kinda slammed it...

Nope.  Even though it actually asked me which version of Windows 7 I have and I answered "Home Premium", it still let me go through the download and install process before telling me I don't qualify.  Microsoft are arseholes.

I guess I'll try VMware or something.

Ran into this on my mom's laptop. Even though you cannot do XP mode, you should be able to create a new VM and load XP on it manually.

This needs a 1 week trial.
67  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Squeezebox Alternatives on: March 03, 2011, 11:51:08 PM
Nearly made the jump on a Squeezebox Boom today, but missed the deal from Logitech. However, in looking at the specs on the hardware, it appears it wouldn't have been a drop in fit for our setup (Twonkymedia Server backend). Anyone have Twonky and a UPnP player/receiver they like?

Edit: Or DLNA. Basically, if it's a player and it works with Twonky, it would be a fit.

Gamestop will mark everything up 300% and have a sale on all that preowned hardware....
69  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Impulse Daily Deals: 1-6 Disciples III: Renaissance on: January 07, 2011, 11:05:38 PM
My only holdout on this is that there will eventually be an expansion, and therefore a Gold version, which will one day be on sale on Steam for $5.
70  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Steam Holiday Sale 2010 - IT'S STARTED!!!!1! on: December 24, 2010, 07:05:31 PM
Is there a demo of Borderlands?
71  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Steam Holiday Sale 2010 - IT'S STARTED!!!!1! on: December 24, 2010, 06:28:52 PM
Overlord complete for $3
Torchlight for $5

Definately worth it at those prices.

The Witcher super mega ultra deluxe edition for $5.

I never played this, but I hear I should.  I'll take it!

Holy crap I missed that. I still haven't played it either - IN! icon_biggrin

For anyone that doesn't already own The Witcher, do yourself a favor and BUY THIS NOW. Seriously, it's one of the best gaming investments you will ever make for 5 bucks.
73  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Oddworld Strangers Wrath and Munch's Odyssey on the way to the PC on: December 18, 2010, 12:02:04 AM
Coming to Steam on 12/20 with 50% off MSRP of 24.99 on the first day.
74  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Popcap Games: Every game 50% off on: November 27, 2010, 05:06:22 AM
Another vote for PvZ, although if you have a 360 there is more content for the XBLA version.

Quote from: CeeKay on November 16, 2010, 08:13:04 AM

finally got around to giving this a shot last night.  Not bad, but I'm not sure how long I'll end up playing.  I've never played any of the Sly games, and I think I see why: one hit on anything damaging and you're dead.  I can almost guarantee there will be a point before even the first game is over the frustration level goes above what I care to subject myself to.

still, amazing visuals.  Well done Sucker Punch!

The 'one hit' aspect of Sly is only in the first game. The rest of the series is a little more like Jak and Daxter in that regard than Sly 1.
76  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Steam SupCom2 plus DLC 66% off on: November 04, 2010, 10:09:25 PM
Pretty sweet deal on both. 5.10 for supcom2 and 3.40 for the new DLC.
77  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Guild Wars 2 on: October 16, 2010, 04:45:34 AM
You pretty much get 3 points for just having an account. Having a few minipets will get you 1-2 points (depends on rarity). Level a ranger pet up to 20 = another point. Rare pet (black moa, etc), one more. Have MOX? Another. I haven't done much for titles, etc and I've got 9 points. When I used the calculator, If I work at a few titles, hero and character armor and weapons, I could get it up to 30. (30 is the max needed for bonus items and not just titles). Not sure if it's really worth all the effort or if all that gear will be replaced very shortly.

Anyone see any videos where gear/weapon equipment management is shown?
78  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Guild Wars 2 on: October 11, 2010, 03:08:17 AM
Ok.... watching this and reading some of the dev diaries, this just went from 'Ok, I know I'm going to buy this eventually' to 'Holy cow, when does this come out so I can play this -now-'.

Any preorder bonuses been announced?
79  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Supreme Commander 2 on: October 09, 2010, 01:12:04 AM
Any impressions on the new DLC?
80  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: GOG closing shop? Say it ain't so! on: September 22, 2010, 10:26:20 PM
$5 off coupon on next purchase and all will be forgiven.
