    ARGs are always too tech-focused for me

    I did the Dark Knight ARG all the way through, and ended up getting free prescreening IMAX tickets for the movie. That was neat.

    I loved the hell out of the portal 2 ARG, they can lie all they want but they're definitely up to something.

    I get to some point where you need to know latin or binary or time zones or some shit and then realize that I'm at least 50 steps behind whoever's discussing this on some forum somewhere.

    The games and stuff they added to was great, but didn't the end point amount to absolutely nothing? Like Portal 2 got released an hour early or something?

    Pretty much? I spent 40 bucks in the potato sack pack and got a free copy of every valve game including portal 2 so that was cool. I really dug all the art and alternate covers and stuff that it unlocked. It was just fun to follow along and try to figure out.

    Oh and i got a burning hatred for cogs, fuck you cogs. I even have an extra copy of that game now, don't even remember why.

    Cogs... I don't remember that game. But yeah, all the art and indie games getting highlighted and stuff was pretty awesome.

    You know those little square sliding puzzles with one empty space and you have to rearrange the picture?

    They're back! In cog form!

    I tried to do as many of the achievements for that ARG as I could but eventually I started cheating. The one in cogs is you had to get a gold rank on a portal themed level, I downloaded a auto hotkey script for it and the script barely beat it with seconds to spare, I dunno how they expected a human to.

    I got a trading card yesterday

    Now what???

    There are definitely parts to this trading card thing I don't quite get even after looking at their FAQ.

    Such as..max card drops. Is that max unique drops? Or if you're limited to 3 drops with 6 available, and you get a 2 unique and 1 duplicate...is that it? Or do you just get your stable of unique cards that you can keep generating over and over, or..what.

    The second one. Although I think games with ingame purchases (like TF2) give you more drop chances when you buy something.

    is there a good KSP mod that helps you build ships with any idea of how powerful/heavy they are? Just something that will tell me the minimum delta V needed to get to various places and a readout showing me how much the rocket can deliver.

    There is, but I'm buggered if I can remember the name. Trawling through HOCGaming or Scott Manley videos on Youtube might enlighten you. Otherwise just skim through kerbalspaceport.com and see if you can find it. I'll have a look myself, when I get a chance.

    Edit : I'm a dumbass. You can sort of do it with Mechjeb, it turns out, from what I read at the mechjeb wiki.


    Edit 2 : It looks a bit like this. Vaguely useful, I guess.

    Yeah, but I want it in the VAB

    So should I have a bunch of cards just for owning games? If so, how do I find them?

    Playing the games unlocks the cards

    Easy, look through this list for games you have, then run said game and either let it idle or actually play for a few hours and you'll get your drops.

    That sounds infuriating.

    There's an option in mechjeb to show your mass, delta-v, burn time, etc for each stage in the VAB

    I like the Trading Card idea more than I thought I would when I read about it. It's giving me incentive to go back and play my games, especially since I guess I can sell my cards on Marketplace?

    So if the dots are the solar system and it's pointing to Saturn, wouldn't that just make the word that goes in the dotted lines Saturn with the SA portion highlighted.
    Presumably requiring other puzzles elsewhere to fill in more letters.

    Obviously this means Valve has brokered a deal with SegA to release all the Sega Saturn games on Steam.
