Hello, you may now embed "gifv" simply by pasting the link (same as youtube). Enjoy!
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Steam is a big fat jerk: Get your barf bags ready, Shattered Horizon

    The slime tether was actually not nearly so useful as I would have liked it to be.

    Steam client update just now "Fixed registering GFW titles after preload decryption"

    Interesting, as it means that my BioShock 2 woes were likely tied to the combination of Steam and GFWL rather than Microsoft's platform on its lonesome

    Still, as an additional layer of validation it remains painfully pointless

    Well does it use GFWL for matchmaking

  • EdcrabEdcrab Registered User regular
    edited February 2010
    I believe so, complete with a lack of dedicated servers and a lack of optimisation

    Basically everyone should just throw money at Valve and integrate via Steamworks

    When GameSpy killed all of those terrible IPX over IP matchmaking services, it didn't stifle competition. It just provided for a period of stability with functional, multi-game matchmaking until a better platform was built.

    So, Civ4, what's probably the easiest victory to shoot for on lower difficulties besides time/score

    I've been winning by that and it's boring as hell

    Playing as Willem van Oraje (Fin/Cre) if it matters

    Do you seriously have to go through steam support? That blows.

  • DogDog Registered User, Administrator, Vanilla Staff admin
    edited February 2010
    Yup. says I've exceeded the amount of activations allowed (which I've only used two to my knowledge), so I can't even launch the game unless I get my activations reset. Reading through the Steam forums its apparently a widespread problem with Anno.

    Some of my favorite game memories are playing all the battlefield games with PA folk. Tried the demo on the 360 and liked what it was doing but it also felt totally different due to the game pad controls.

    I really liked the 360 version, but I already paid for the PC version and it seems like more people here have it for that anyway.
