I'm all about Disciples III, yo!

Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space looks intriguing. Is it fun?

I have no idea - I bought a bundle of games, and these are the ones I don't want. That's right, you're getting my table scraps.

Does this mean you want the key, or you already have it, and are just exclaiming your joy for the game?

It means I would be interested in acquiring a key for that game, Christopher. :)

If you like Saints Row games, this bundle is a very good deal:
https://www.humblebundle.com/?deepsilverbundle

BTW, the price has gone up 10 cents in the last 30 minutes.

Pretty good ID sale going on at Steam, GMG and GetGames. If you've got $90 burning a hole in your pocket, you can own every Bethesda/ID game that Steam sells:

With just the Elder Scrolls and Fallout games alone, you could play full-time, 40 hours a week, and you could easily play for 4-5 months without playing the same content twice.

EDIT: Oh, and they're good hours. It's not simply about the numbers, because lots of games can suck up tons of your time. But grinding is no fun. These games are actually good.

I played about 3 hours of Fallout 3, and got really bored (I got to the first shanty town, where you have to defuse or detonate the bomb - neither of which I actually got to). Not sure what it is, because I can play for Oblivion or Just Cause 2 for hours and hours on end, and never get bored.

Ha...I played it for 5 minutes, and couldn't stand shooting big insects over and over (worse than the wolves in Oblivion, which I had to mod to stop from happening). I'll plough through Fallout one of these days, and then try New Vegas again.

$5 for Morrowind (includes expansions), $6.25 for Oblivion Deluxe (all DLC), $15 for Skyrim ($36 for the Legendary/DLC edition). All very good deals.

Bear in mind, if you're thinking about buying any of these, Bethesda is releasing this next month:

Daggerfall made to run on modern systems = win!

I still have my original Daggerfall disc and guidebook.

Daggerfall works just fine, if you use the EXE from this site:
http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Daggerfall:Files

That box is only worth it if you're a collector, or just want the maps. Otherwise, you can get the games for a lot less individually (especially the first two).

Insane Humble deal:

https://www.humblebundle.com/?originbundle

Mind you, 3 of the games require Origin to run, but still...

Holy Shit! I have half of those games in one form or another but still totally worth it to have them all on one platform.

There will be at least one more game added to this as well, and you get separate Origin and Steam keys (so, for most games, you actually get two copies!!).

If anyone wants, they're welcome to either the Steam or Origin copy of Mirror's Edge.

Wish I would have realized this. I would have given the Origin copies away had i noticed I could get them on Steam. I also wouldn't have paid more to get The Sims because the hell if I really feel like using Origin. Not that it really matters.

According to some very smart peeps on Reddit, Humble will be adding steam keys for Dead space 2, Medal Of Honor Airborne, Bulletstorm, and Red Alert 3 Uprising before this deal expires. It's quite possible EA will add additional Origin-exclusive games as well.

Don't know where else to put this, so I'm putting it here:

Dead Rising 2 and Crackdown are both free on Xbox Live right now.

I can't speak for DR2, but Crackdown is super rad and totally worth a download.

I'm not sure if Microsoft was able to hang on to this sharing feature for their upcoming console, but Steam is...er...steaming ahead with their own version:

http://www.engadget.com/2013/09/11/stea ... y-sharing/

Very cool.

Also, great Humble Bundle this week...

I have a key that unlocks Duke Nukem 3D (Megaton edition) and Shadow Warrior Redux, for anyone that wants it.

It's a single key...and you can't trade the extra copy of DN3D, assuming you already own it.

I'll take em both, then. I have the GOG version of DN3D but I guess it won't hurt to have it for Steam, too.

Interesting....?

http://store.steampowered.com/livingroom/

Also, if anyone wants a Hitman: Absolution key, lemme know...unless you can convince me it's a good game, and I should just play it instead.

I just finished it a few weeks ago. It's a good game if you like stealth games in the Splinter Cell realm of things. The story is a great big who gives a shit, but the gameplay can be pretty tense and fun. Some levels are linear, but the open levels are cool. You have a big area and a target or targets to kill, but you can't get caught or be seen, so you have to scope out ways to kill then. You can snipe, corner them in a remote place and strangle them, arrange for an "accident" to happen, etc.

I don't really recall you ever mentioning that you like games like this, but if you've ever enjoyed a stealth game you should give this one a whirl.

The less story (and cutscenes), the better. My favourite way to play Far Cry 3 is with just a bow and arrow, and (stealthily) picking off bad guys one by one. I'll give this a whirl.

Holy crap - 26 GB to install Hitman!

The big reveal (no, not HL3):

http://store.steampowered.com/livingroom/SteamOS/

The family sharing thing sounds like what the Xbox One was trying to do...

The story mode had a lot of story and (skippable cutscenes), all of which can be gleefully ignored.

You might prefer "Contracts" mode, though. They strip away all the story and just give you the levels of the game with certain people marked for death and specific conditions under which to do it. If all you want are stealthy kills, that mode will give you unlimited kills, since the contracts are created by users.

Yep, just as I feared. A Linux-based platform that won't play most of my games. No thanks.

If Valve thinks that game developers (especially indie devs) are all of the sudden going to abandon Windows and start making Linux-compatible games just so they can be on the Steam Box, they're out of their fucking minds.

Developers are going to make their games available to the most common platforms. Outside of consoles, the far-and-away most common choice is Windows. I don't see that changing soon.

I get it, Gabe. Windows 8 REALLY sucks. No argument here. But PC gamers just aren't jumping ship to Linux because of it. Mostly they're doing what I'm doing -- simply sticking with Windows 7. A perfectly viable platform for Steam Box, if you ask me.

Edit: I would bet HUGE that the 3rd announcement is going to be Half Life 3 exclusively for SteamOS.

Shit.

There's a reason Windows game developers switched from OpenGL to Direct3D. Switching back (which is the only option for Linux) will never happen in a million years. These Linux games will be restricted to 2D platformers, or just awful ports. This is why Valve came up with this streaming solution (which is what Sony is doing with the PS4). A solution to a problem that shouldn't exist.

Yeah the streaming thing baffled me, too.
1. It's going to run like shit.
2. If I have to have another PC on my network that's running Windows to get this to work so I can access 100 percent of my games, then why should I even bother with this thing? HDMI cables are real cheap.

Eh.

http://www.destructoid.com/valve-introduces-a-new-type-of-controller-for-steam-262578.phtml


I get what they're going for here but I'm pretty sure I'll be using my Xbox 360 controller for ALL of the titles that support it. But, I DO like the idea that it will act as a keyboard and mouse for games that only support that type of input.
