    I need to get back into FTL

    really enjoyed my time getting to that final sector

    then was crushed so horribly it just kind of ruined any desire to get back into it immediately

    but I really want that mantis ship

    wish there was a slightly less random way to get that stuff

    I need five

    Breach bombs are what you always wanna buy if you wanna get to the last sector.

    Stealth is what you need to survive the flagship.

    And blast doors and proper oxygen deprevation tactics.

    Blast doors and the opening thereof is one of my favorite tactics in the last few sectors.

    Was that a knock at the door? Tell them to come back later, I'm doing the dishes.

    Point of note:

    Should you find yourself with two mantis crewman and a Crew Teleporter at the early stages of the game, you will find yourself using the Port-and-Murder-Everyone Tactic made famous by such notable commanders as George Armstrong Custer and Erwin Rommel. The bounties are substantially larger than normal, especially fuel, which negates much of the buying of said consumable at various vendors, netting you even more of the luscious Spare Parts to pimp your ride.

    Do not get fucking greedy and try to take over every last ship; some of them are randomly impossible to do.

    p.s. Mister Spacebar is your friend.

    If you have cameras on their ship and a breach bomb and a teleporter, you can bomb to kill most of the guys then teleport to kill the last guy who is dying from lack of oxygen since his room is breached.

    Humor can be dissected as a frog can, but dies in the process.

    Playing deus ex: hr right now. Was going to do a non-lethal run then
    belltower mercs slaughtering everyone in the garden pods happened

    Brutally murdered every one of those motherfuckers... Including the guards standing outside.

    Nothing gets my blood boiling like ruthless thugs in uniform.

    I shot the regular ol' street cops when they interfered with tranq darts cause they don't know a thing and they seem okay

    But if you're wearing a belltower uniform

    Bullet to the head

    Cyborg Matt, a big member of the Dota community currently on a Valve tour, just uploaded this picture

    Apparently a Valve employee left their computer on while he was there
    Either Valve is trolling, or that guy ain't ever being invited back.

    But this would jive with the leak awhile back that showed a lot of people working on L4D3.

  • FishmanFishman Put your goddamned hand in the goddamned Box of Pain. Registered User regular
    I think RPS put it best when summarising the last leak:
    Every time a slip, leak or whisper emerges from inside the caverns of PC shop owners and former developers Valve, the gaming news press (us occasionally included) gets into a frothy frenzy at the mention of Half-Life 3. “Could this be evidence they’re working on it?!” everyone cries, tickling their own legs in excitement. OF COURSE THEY ARE! Of COURSE Valve is working on Half-Life 3! It’s not even vaguely feasible that they wouldn’t be! They’ve obviously been working on it, in some capacity, since HL2: Ep 2 came out. News would be if they actually bloody finished it.

    Today’s leak comes from the erstwhile spies at Valvetime, who have gotten hold of a Valve “project tracker”, which contains words like “Half-Life 3″, “Source 2″ and “Left 4 Dead 3″, and understandably the community enthusiast site celebrates this coup. But what the find isn’t is revelationary.

    What would be a hugely interesting news story would be discovering that Valve wasn’t working on Half-Life 3, Left 4 Dead 3, or a significantly improved version of the Source engine. What would also make for front page headlines would be the news that they were actually going to bloody well release anything other than DOTA 2 for the 47th time.

    So yes. You can assure yourself that Half-Life 3 is in development. It will have been in development in various iterations and forms for about six years (SIX YEARS since Episode Two), some of which will have been scrapped, evolved, persisted with and given up on. The only interesting thing left to hear about Half-Life 3 at this point would be news that they’d managed to make something worth talking about.

    Eh, the previous leak was pretty informative, as it gave an idea of where Valve's focus lied; namely there were a lot more people on the L4D3 list than the HL3 list, so we'll likely see a L4D3 announcement first. This is pretty decent news, as it means I better manage my expectations the next time Valve starts rumbling with a game announcement.

    Hey, guys

    Lego LotR is pretty great.

    1) Throwing Gimli is a valid (and heavily emphasized) puzzle-solving technique.
    2) During the battle with the giant octopus-thing outside Moria, Legolas fires Gimli's axe with his bow right into the monster's face.
    3) Gandalf's fight with the Balrog is fucking rad.

    they only just released tools for custom gametypes in l4d2, so I'm not sure why they're making another one already?

    That and the recent Linux port of the game have been the only comprehensive in-house work Valve has done on L4D in years, and neither of those really added any in-game content that the majority of players would ever make use of

    The most recent original game content they put out for L4D2 was the Cold Stream campaign, which was a) fanmade b) delayed by a full year between when they first released the beta version to the public and when they actually released the final version and c) not really any good at all

    The last Valve-produced original content for L4D, not counting tweaks to Cold Stream or ports of L4D1 content into L4D2, was when The Sacrifice came out in October 2010, nearly three years ago

    finished Riven last week, started and finished Machinarium this weekend, started Bastion earlier. puzzlepuzzleRPG? this isn't counting the filler Audiosurf and Beat Hazard sessions, of course. finally getting through the backlog!

    On dude, what did you think of machinarium? I played it recently and it was awesome! I did have to cheat and look up how to finish on puzzle in the arcade room because I got stuck on it for like two days

    it is really cute and charming and i am far too dumb for the later bits of it. i apparently need my puzzles way more apparent than implied. plus i was overthinking a few of them, heh. it also took me awhile to realize that i could use the keyboard for the arcade games and not just the mouse, which meant for some fiendish-quick movements, lemme tell ya. i already loved the soundtrack, and had played Samorost 2. those games are definitely worth playing, moreso if you have the patience to figure out what you've missed and thus, the puzzle.

    i love this game so much, i have eked it out a.. very long time. so i am currently in a non-lethal playthrough that's been going for a year+. when that bit happened, i killed every last one of those fuckers.

    and then reloaded. a bloody little fantasy, Jensen!

    i also had a freakout and got killed, then did my best to save her on the reload.
    not knowing she actually could be saved. so my fruitless gesture, spitting in the face of death, turned out to work. i was surprised and gratified at that little reminder of, "oh, yeah, this isn't a game totally on rails!", along with how much i'd invested in her character, so... good job, developers.

    Oh my God, the jokes in Lego LotR

    Aragorn says, "Let's hunt some orc." In response,
    Gimli cocks his axe like a shotgun.

    I'm dead.

    I meta'd that, having left Paul behind in the original and having found out later that he could be saved. So when presented with the same choice in HR, I was like "Haha, I hope you guys like ONETWOTHREEDEATH!"

    when a game gives me nonlethal options, I generally use them, because most of the enemies in that kind of game are just dudes punchin' a clock

    no reason they gotta die just because they happened to switch shifts with Bill on that night or whatever

    but I did the same thing in that part of DX:HR
    oh, you're all just going to exterminate a bunch of civilians?

    okay then
