    So Steam on Linux is basically just going to be Source Engine and a few indie games for a while, right?

    If they continue with Steamplay it would be pretty cool to buy a game and then have copies of it for Windows, Mac, and Linux.

    As far as I know, L4D2 will be the only Valve game on Linux at first. I'd guess others will come after that, but L4D2 is the only one they've talked about publicly.

    Porting other games from the Source engine will probably be trivial in comparison to porting the actual Source engine.
    Theres also all the games that have participated in the Indie Bundles (quality stuff there) aaaaand... not much else?

    Steam on Linux has more chances of success than Mac OS did back in its day, since pretty much anyone who doesnt mind a bit of hassle can get a PC with linux going, while Mac requires $$$

    I was playing some Borderlands 2 with the fine gentlemen from Wangs Without Borders and I stumbled into an issue. Typically when I chat online while gaming (mostly Skype + League of Legends) I have it set up so the verbal communication goes through my headset while the sounds of the game go through my speakers. This combined with my noise-canceling headphones makes it easy to hear my team without blasting them with my own game noise.

    Is there a way to set this up for Steam Voice?

    I am in the business of saving lives.

    Fuck it I'm getting an extra game; I just finally finished painting my kitchen, it looks great and I deserve a god-damn treat!

    So way back a while ago @AnteCantelope gifted me TorchLight 2. I had completely forgotten until yesterday when Steam suddenly alerted me that I had something in inventory, and there was my gift copy of TL1. So I spent like 5 hours yesterday playing TL2. And it was pretty fun.

    Thanks!

    So... Alpha Protocol? What's with the combat? I hear it's bad, but why? Keep in mind, I'm someone who likes the combat in Mass Effect 1, even as I recognize its flaws.

    I, for one, enjoyed the Mako.

    Alpha Protocol is awesome, buy it. Sneak around, choke and stab people, shoot them in the head with a pistol.

    It is exactly like the combat in ME1

    Youll be fine

    Be wary of going full stealth though, one boss in particular is a bastard if you do this

    More or less. Though there are a few skills that are pretty much obligatory, else you'll have some nasty times ahead. That was part of the problem.

    Yeah, heard about that, what are they again? Stealth, hacking, pistols? Is there anything that just plain sucks?

    My OCD? At first I couldn't bring myself to complete a level if ANY enemy saw me before I killed him. I realised eventually that this wasn't possible (except on one level) and just had fun regardless.

    Daily deal is Renegade Ops along with the DLC. It's a pretty good game and great co-op craziness.

    I think I found Saints Row The Third to be actually disappointing, if you had been hyped up like I had. It was just never...crazy enough for me, if that makes sense. Yeah, you could go around thrashing people with marital aids, but I played my game relatively straight: my Boss was a woman who dressed normally and took running her gang business/empire very seriously. So I guess that's my fault?

    Well, I haven't played it in "woooo I'm karayzay!!" mode, mainly because that's not my playstile. But to say it's not crazy enough? After the plane thing? Doing 'deals with action figures and mix tapes? Dr. Genki!?

    Seriously, this game has it all!

    (Guess I'll hold on getting it mainly because I want the whole pack, like in the previous sale, not just the game.)

    If you can get all the way through the game and out the other side and still say that, I will have to say that you are dead inside.

    It starts out over the top. Then stuff gets fucking crazy. And weird.

    I guess the wrestling bit is probably the most "out there" bit. Everything else was just "shooting, but with 'weird' shit happening around you, like Tron or gay prostitute chariot races".

    Maybe I just wasn't blown away as much as I feel I should have been. Still a fine game though.
    Except for that bit where you are shooting at invaders from the balcony/penthouse area of one of your cribs. They are in the street below, and it makes you take the elevator down to the ground floor instead of letting me jump off the balcony firing my guns as I wanted and felt that they should have let me do that.

    It's because it came out after ME2. And that people are impatient and keep jamming on the fire key, increasing the firing cone, rather than waiting for it to shrink to laser like accuracy

    All of the combat skills other than pistols are, to phrase this diplomatically, sub-par.

    Aiming for a Stealth/Pistols/whatever two skills make hacking and lockpicking easier build will make 99% of the game's combat so effortless as to be comedic. The 1% is a boss fight that you'll know when you get there.

    AP's combat is incredibly unbalanced and clunky, but then again, that's true of a bunch of other great RPG games.

    The combat really isn't like Mass Effect 1, and I'm not sure why everyone always says that. In ME1 you could pretty much just hold down the fire button. Alpha Protocol is closer to something like Deus Ex: get your crosshair on someone and wait for it to narrow. Just level up pistols a million times and you'll be fine. Stealth is the other skill to grab.

    AP Is awful, i couldnt even get out of the tutorial area once i hit that fucking horrid number matching minigame with the clunkiest most impossible controls ever devised. I've taken a crack at the game 3 times and never been able to pass that spot before getting super frustrated and annoyed and giving up. If a game isn't fun why play it right?

    I'm going to disagree with the above two posts and say that SR3 was very very fun, one of my favorite GTA-esque games (up there with Sleeping Dogs) and Alpha Protocol is very much in my top 10 RPGs. The combat is nothing to write home about but the dialogue, story and branching paths are brilliant.

    SR3 was my first entry into the series and while I havent finished it (I got distracted by shorter games in an attempt to clear out my gamebank) I was a little let down with the whole start out on top thing, but that said the game is a lot of fun. I kinda think a source of my let down was that I started with a bunch of shit thanks to the DLC which I otherwise wouldnt have. Like, I gain money really quickly so buying things isnt a problem, I can already select a tank, a hoverbike, a witches broom and a couple other vehicles that I wouldnt otherwise.

    I typically dont like the GTA style games with a KBAM but I think SR3 handles just fine and I have no desire to use a controller even though one is plugged in.

    The game is pretty wacky but for some reason I cant bring myself to make a wacky character.

    I would totally recommend the game to anyone who likes GTA style games.

    I absolutely loved SR3. It was great for short blasts of insane but quick fun and equally amazing for longer stints. One of those games that once you start playing, the time just whizzes by.

    This is definitely true, I would sit down with the intention of playing for maybe an hour before I went to bed and would instead find out its 2am and Ive been playing for 3 hours.

    The game has the terrible tendency to get you into the "just one more mission" mindset.

    With the Cockney voice it made for a entertaining protagonist.
