    I have a hopeless backlog since I bought the Paradox Interactive deal two summer sales ago. It was like 15 games that each support over 150 hours of play, with all the DLCs and whatnot. I have given up trying to complete it; the 350+ hours I got from Europa Universalis III frankly paid for the whole thing by itself.

    This year I plan to be more... surgical. At the top of my list? Tomb Raider on a flash sale of 66% or greater.

    Didn't you win that in a giveaway from me a while back? I'm almost certain that was you.

    And yeah, it may have the sort of art that appeals to kids, but the dialog and humor is definitely geared toward adults. Not because it's dirty or risque or anything (I think there might be a couple of innuendos is all), but just because it's likely to go over childrens' heads. Death being bored out of his mind because "this is a point and click adventure and nobody ever dies in a point-and-click adventure!" is probably much more funny to an adult.

    @Luchaire, huh, you're right. I DID win this one from your contest. I have the email. From receiving the gift. With YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS. Just saying. I KNOW HOW TO FIND YOU. I have access to your giftbox. And, this message can be taken in a very creepy way, to clarify, I mean it in the non-creepy, your backlog will be fucked sort of way. Yeah.

    That would have been way more intimidating... if my email address wasn't already right here in my PA profile.

    Because I have no fear.

    :twisted:

    Actually, you have all 3 FEARs, I just checked. Woulda been a hilarious gifting if you hadn't though, just sayin'.

    That's because @Big Classy is a monster!

    And he is probably single-handedly responsible for half of my backlog.

    I know he's single-handedly responsible for giftblocking me far too often. And, that should be a term we use around here, not sure if someone can come up with a more clever synonym...

    It's funny - I never realized the option was there to allow it to be displayed. It's a bit like that guy for the privacy protection service who used to put his social security number on the side of buses to show how secure they were. Like "You can't gift bomb me, and I'm so sure of it, here's my email address."

    Finally got around to restarting Psychonauts (already finished it once), this time for cards. Guess what my first drop was?

    ("I am a collectible card game player. Here is my deck."
    "That combo is so Oh Pee."
    "Some cards are rarer than others, and thus more valuable.")

    @Incindium, decided I should get a good start to August, too. So he gifted me the new Rise of the Triad pre-order with the Apogee Throwback pack!

    This should be fun. Also, kind of a relief that the next time I want to play Blake Stone, I won't have to A. Find my 3.5" floppy disk copy, and B. Plug in the PC that still uses 3.5" floppies.

    Thank you!

    My fellow Steamicans,

    A few pages ...erh...threads back, the game 'unepic' was reviewed and given some negative looks because of a few annoying bits of gameplay. I've been playing through it and have been rather impressed by its gameplay and length. Recently, I got to the annoying bits of gameplay in question, and while I admit the issue is annoying its also rather avoidable. With care i simply equipped crappy weapons so my good items would not get turned into a toy hammer. Some of the other points raised seem restricted to challenges which do not have to be done to beat the game.

    Basically ive had a good bit of fun with the game, and give it a hearty thumbs up.
