    So the Classy Crabs have a Minecraft server now. There are 2 or 3 major Minecraft servers for PA and they are great, but our Steam Chat group is pretty cool so I put one up for them/us. All PA are welcome of course.

    The Crafty Crab 66.85.168.170:25571 - Dedicated server, 24/7, Normal Survival. It's to have fun!
    Note: You need to be whitelisted for now so just head into Steam chat and PM CloudBomb or yell at a bunch of people until I show up, or until I add other people who can add other people. Yeah, that works. You can PM me here as well, but I am not sure I can get to it in a timely manner.

    Don't be a dick, more details coming later.

    Steam thread Minecraft server? Now that's intriguing. Haven't crafted mines in quite some time so this could be the thing to drag me back in.

    Yeah same here. I've been looking for a server and most of the public ones are horrible. And I never really got into the war server or whatever it changed to in the minecraft thread. I'll be checking it out for sure.

    edit: Cloud just whitlisted me and I checked it out. Everything works fine. I was the only one on though. :( But I did find someone's shack.

    Is HoMM 6 worth it for someone who is a big fan of the King's Bounty games?

    I haven't played kings bounty, but I Jus got HOMM6, and its pretty much the same old stuff, rejigged a little. New little story etc. I paid $15 for it at a brick and mortar store (these still exist... and have games on sale sometimes!), which is another 10$ off the price on steam here in Aus (not sure of US price) and I thought it was worth it for that.

    You haven't played King's Bounty?! I can fix that....

    @aerynkelly Apologies for not responding earlier, it was my sons birthday this weekend and I had a busy one. I would love to take you up on that offer though, I have heard good things about King's Bounty.

    Hey, sorry if this has been answered already, but what's the difference between the Penny Arcade steam group and Armadeaddon? From what I gather, Armadeaddon is basically the "other" PA group.

    Armadeaddon is a L4D group. Or it started that way anyway.

    Interesting. How does one get an invite to Armadeaddon? Is it the similar 6-month activity rule like with the PA group?

    Since when can the sigs tell what non-Steam game you're playing? It's recognizing me playing Starcraft 2. And how is it doing it? My profile and the XML for my profile aren't showing it. Did Suds find a way to get the data only shown to the in-client friends list?

    Now it's a non stop pretty much adults only sex chat room featuring a lot of hentai discussion and high school girls who try to pass themselves off as legal. Oh, and the Pax Witch is their goddess symbol.

    Stay out of that Steam group, trust me.

    I really need to play some more Payday... Haven't got my president masks yet.

    I also checked out my Steam wasting... I think I might have one of the most embarassing cost/hour with 4.98/hour. I need more free time!

    Interesting site.
    Ranked 2015th with 3066.0 hours played. Has played 98/144 games. Owns 144 games for a total worth of $1768.43. Overall account cost/hour for gametime is $0.58.

    that's 127 days, 18 hours, and 0 minutes, where Terraria is their most played game, which accounts for 13.5% of their playtime

    Hosting the Terraria server when it came out upped that time. You used to have to have the Client running to do it.

    Top Games: Terraria, Dungeon Defenders, Company of Heroes, mount & blade. I am good with this list.

    That pretty much sums it up. The ending is rather underwhelming.

    It's because on the first fight you have no extra life, your stuff isn't powered up, and you have no skills.

    That and the throwing mechanics are a bit shit.

    Nothing else in the game is anywhere near as bad as that first fight.

    Make sure you finish the game, the ending is one of the most badass things ever.

    Just started playing this yesterday and got up to the bat boss and gave it one go before calling it a night. I have a feeling she is going to be challenging.

    So apprently the managing director of gog says that massive discounts on steam games are bad for us.

    http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2012/04/06/gog-talks-preserving-value-of-games-slow-death-of-drm/

    In a way I guess they are bad for my backlog, yet good for my wallet. Also, I love steam and gog, but I can't help but think comments like this are kind of stupid since we know gog is targeting steam's customers recently. I mean is he really trying to convince me not to buy games on sale? :?

    I don't know of anyone who buys games they don't want, sale or not.

    I've bought games I've been interested in, but wouldn't otherwise at full price. And I don't see how that's bad. If anything it's good. People discover new favorite games as well as developers they otherwise would have ignored.

    I know most gog games are already cheap, but it just sounds like gog can't offer the kind of discounts steam does so why not attack it? I love gog, don't get me wrong, but I think most people can agree that gog's marketing strategies are kind of terrible.
