    Same. Got it from a bundle already anyway.

    I didn't even like playing as him in Super Meat Boy.

    So, not sure if the Steam thread is the right place for this question.

    I've had a hankering for an economics sim for the past two weeks but don't really have any money to invest in buying some to test if they are good. I remember that I have Patrician 4 on steam and try it out yesterday and really like it.

    I seem to remember somebody saying that Patrician 3 was a better game, and think it was someone in this thread. Can anyone comment on why Patrician 3 should be better, since I like the graphics in 4 and don't want to spend 4,5€ buying 3 if the "better" thing about 3 is mostly someone preferring sprites over 3d models. Is there a significant gameplay difference?

    The only thing I saw people saying was better in 3 was the ship combat. I have both games and I don't see any reason to go back to 3. I'd also recommend getting the expansion as it improves the base game.

    Love Recettear, but lost interest once I figured out how to make infinity moneyz by ignoring Tear's advice. Really hope there is a sequel one day that greatly expands on this awesome base.

    Ever since I first played Final Fantasy 4 as a kid, I had always wanted an RPG economic sim/town builder where I create all the shops and accommodations In a typical 16-bit RPG to effectively take advantage of bands or traveling heroes.

    Just caught up on monday morning steam thread: this fits a bit of The Guild II: Renaissance or Pirates of the European Seas. Midevil life/business simulator, with politics.

    Been dicking around with it, and so far it's actually fun. Like a MOBA but without the DOTA bullshit.

    Still that same one article from the Verge I'm afraid, it's just that all the other games news sites are re-printing the same information and linking back to the first article.

    Has anyone played Wakfu? RPS posted a feature on it today, and it looked really cool. I'm at work, so I can't play it, but I was wondering if anyone had some impressions of it.

    I laughed at that too, and obviously they don't read our thread cuz the way the broke down Purchases didn't fit properly. Do you have more than x games? Yes I have more than 200+.. have you bought any in the past month? Yes, but.. sales sales sales.. is when I get most of mine, and there was no mention of "Do you get gifted many games from the Classy Chaps of Penny Arcade Forums?".

    That man named PeteRoseHair has gifted the complete Brothers in Arms series to me!

    (You're freaking awesome. Song made up on the spot, set to the opening tune of Pirelli's Miracle Elixir. Feels appropriate for announcing something.)

    oh SNAP A THEME SONG!

    Hahaha I absolutely love this, thank you!

    And enjoy Brothers in Arms. For WW2 buffs, it's pretty great. Lots of great touches and attention to detail. The suppression mechanic is also damn fine and lends some weight to taking a hill. You didn't just charge up and throw bullets at guys, you actually lead your squad, direct them, and take a location.

    I wuv my wireless 360 controller. Couldn't possibly go back to the wired one now. My only complaint with it is that if you disconnected the receiver dongle while the controller is active...it will keep looking for the receiver signal until its battery dies. So you need to make sure the controller is asleep before it loses the receiver signal.

    Didn't Quake 3 have cross-platform gameplay between PC and Dreamcast players? And I believe that the PC gamers kicked their asses. For FPSs, gamepads have nothing on KBAM.

    Probably not too many, honestly.

    Ah, thanks. Didn't even notice the expansion. Hmm, costs as much as the game atm. Going to wait on it till the summer sale I think.

    Having not been instantly gratified with an answer I looked on youtube for a let's play or review and found a LP of Patrician 4 done by one of the more annoying people in the world. If you haven't played the econ game your LPing before, then please don't.
    I also found a LP of Patrician 3 by a guy that seemed to think the way forward in business is to hijack your competitors' assets.

    Patrician 3 seems more old-school in it's management which isn't what I want right now, but I can believe ship combat is better, since it's quite bad in Patrician 4.

    I think I need to find a strategy guide to Patrician 4 since I feel like I'm not managing my automated conveys in the right way :/

    Most people that I meet who prefer consoles always brings up the fact that they can sit on their couch and play games. I have a hard time imagining how you would use KB&M where you wouldn't be more comfortable sitting in front of a PC. Then again, I really don't understand how playing games from a couch is better then in front of a PC, but that might just be because of the games I play and my more-then-5$-office-chair.

    I certainly never played any PC players back when I played Quake 3 on the Dreamcast. There was a keyboard and mouse available for the DC though, so even if there was cross-platform play, it wouldn't necessarily have been so one-sided.

    Someone here would know this.

    Is there a really simple Steam backlog website? Something where I can just log in with my Steam account, and it will show me a list of my games, and it will let me click a "completed" checkmark next to one of them? (Bonus points if it can automatically check games off when it sees an appropriate achievement unlocked).

    Because I logged into backloggery. And saw how it didn't look much like my Steam library anymore. And it looked like way too much work to update.

    Not to mention it takes about 2 minutes to plug an xbox controller into your PC and and HDMI cable from PC to TV and poof, you can game from your couch with your PC, but the graphics and framerate are far better than your console.

    I think you're stuck with either the categories in Steam, or keeping Backloggery up to date. I went with the backloggery option, it works for me but it did take a couple of hours to set up so it's not ideal.
