    I am in need of three suckers fine and classy gents who play games during the am est. Or that is, to say, generally around now, as I'm getting out of work soon and this is when I play.

    14:33 - Isorn: I see people buying that dino beatdown game
    14:33 - Isorn: heard it was very broken though

    Apparently this was code for getting this gifted heh. Thanks choco.

    Yeah, that happens every now and then. It's no big deal.

    It seems like it's been happening a lot more lately, though.

    Having fun with Port Royale 3.
    But it is exactly the same game as Patrician 4. Exactly.
    They changed the graphics and the map, but otherwise..

    I was hoping they'd add a few mechanics or something, but..

    Lords of the Realm II was fantastic for its time.

    Lords of the Realm III was an entirely different game and I personally thought it was horrible.

    Hmm. I may pick up the earlier ones then and not III

    If Steam community is having problems, you get that in your sig due to the fact that it can't read your profile.

    I think most people consider LotR3 the best one, though. There was some discussion on it in the GoG thread.

    Starting to see why people hate GFWL. Only real exposure I had with was Age of Empires Online. Most of the other stuff that used it didn't run well for me. Now that they do, I have spent the last 20 or so minutes in DOWII while it applies an update. Fun. Honestly not sure it's actually applying it and just getting hung up on something by how long it takes. Killed it once, restarted...same thing.

    When DoW2 was released, GFWL wouldn't let me play it online for about a month, due to some bug. They fixed it eventually, but I wasn't happy.

    So, for those of you that have Toy Soldiers, how does it run? My laptop meets all the minimum (and recommended) specs except for the graphics card part--mine only has 256mb of memory, and the specs say 1-2gb.

    Also how bad is the gwfl component? Sounds icky.

    Chime is very much worth a buck and a quarter.

    It would absolutely be my favorite music game if it had more songs to play with.

    good to see a recommendation straight away, i came to ask if it's worth playing. any chance you could give a bit more of an explanation as to why it's good? I know it's only £1 but I still have Sequence to play and I've barely touched Audiosurf since buying it years ago

    I fired up Chime a week or so ago after not playing it since I first got it and kind of got hooked for a day or two. You make combos by tetris filling your pieces into the area(s) they give you to fill. You get points based on how well you do this, etc. The music is what makes the game though, and I enjoyed the limited songs they had. I must admit, I really enjoyed the Portal song the most I think, even though I am not good enough at the game to create the Companion Cubes :(

    For those who are not Steam friends with me for some ridiculous reason, here is my Chime recommendation straight from Steam:
    One day I hit my head on a low doorframe and/or ingested lots of drugs and I had an idea for a game that was basically Tetris crossed with music crossed with Lumines. Actually, it was more than an idea. It was a vision, a divine vision that affected a heavenly euphoria in the manifestation that entered my mind. The singular power of so beautiful a portent impressed me into the service of such a wondrous outcome, and I spent the next two years building a pyramid of pure white limestone to house what would eventually be the greatness of this game I had envisioned.

    At some point the developers of Chime must have talked with my dealer and smoked the same stuff because I was like, 15% done with the pyramid when this game came out. I was pretty pissed, but then I played the game and realized that it was quite fun, then I got pissed again when I realized that there weren't enough songs.

    Also I think they narced on my dealer.

    Still: a fun game. 11 out of 13 peyote-fueled spirit quests.

    That dinosaur game looks amazing, I didn't think I could afford anymore games this month but I think I can justify it if I review it.. maybe?

    Also, while I'm in a crazy games buying mood, anyone know if there's any good deals on Anno 2070 at the moment? been waiting forever for that to get cheap.

    The Steam forums for the game and the devs website are pretty overrun with people complaining about performance. Too bad there's no demo.

    From the latest indieroyale bundle, I already had it.

    Man, I was about to feel bad that you wasted $10 on that thing, but I suppose it's all good now.

    In case anyone might ever actually be tempted to get this, DON'T. It's basically just incredibly shallow twitch evasion through an environment that is far less interesting than the developers seem to think it would be. After 10 minutes or so of playing, I never want to touch it again.

    To counter this, I really enjoy Brainpipe. It's basically computerized DMT, with some really nice sound, and is relaxing to play, I'm really enjoying my time with it. This may be because I bought it for 3 dollars in the Indie Bundle, but I think it's a solid trippy game.

    Amazon is apparently really moving forward to having more of their games have Steam Keys whether they're Steamworks or not according to the CAG thread. Like if it has a Steam version at all they're apparently going after Steam keys if at all possible (example, one of the upcoming sales is Divinity 2 for 6 bucks, and they're trying to get Steam keys for it). Will be pretty nice since they're supposed to be having some good sales this month.

    Is this going to be retroactive; I got Dead Space 2 from there, but it's not Steamworks.

    I finally finished Borderlands. That was pretty cool - thanks and menaces to @Iolo for getting me going on it again. I did the Dr. ned DLC, but not Knoxx, Claptrap or Moxxie, because I was feeling a bit burned out. I'll go back in a few months and finish them up I think.

    In the meantime, Star Trek Online (I blame...I think, @Docshifty for that one?) and Jade Empire.

    Going to try and get my Dino Beatdown on - it CTD'd on initial load. Is that just me?

    No, in a future type thing. Like how a few months ago Amazon randomly started selling only Steam keys of Borderlands. Not likely to sway a company like EA either way.

    I know nothing about Star Trek and I'm not really interested in learning about it. Would I still enjoy STO? I see a lot of people playing it.
