    Yeah, I got my butt kicked pretty hard by that last night. Then I went to Salvation Prophecy and got my butt kicked even more, because goddamn that's crazy hard, too.

    It was a rough night. But lots of fun!

    I had the same thought. Then I remembered that the Humble Weekly Bundle changes weekly, and is due to roll over tomorrow. The main Humble Bundle generally has "off" periods where they don't have anything running. There's no guarantee that they'll transition right into a new bundle.

    As far as that troll went, Freespace 2 didn't ship with a cockpit view and it still has a pretty thriving community and is racking up sales for GOG. Did I-War have a cockpit view? In fact, the only one I recall with a cockpit view that everyone wants is also the series (singular and plural) that we can't get legally online.

    I'm not sure what you mean by the bolded

    Lots of games have cockpit views

    Descent and the sequel. Don't remember 3; didn't play it much.
    TIE Fighter had cockpits
    Wing Commander
    All of the *Siege games, which (to be fair) aren't SCS games

    I'm under the impression "cockpit view" is something that's on the Great Checklist of Space Combat Games. This could easily be mistaken.

    I was talking about the star wars games, all of them, in their glory.

    But as far as the cockpit view, what I'm trying to say and accomplishing poorly via a written medium, is that its not as essential to flight games as the troll made it seem. Yeah, its fun to see all the dials and buttons, my sketchbooks as a kid are filled with them, but I'm not considering their absence as the biggest sign that a space fighter game sucks. I'm squeeeee'ing over enemy starfighter as much as anyone else, but its about the game as a whole, the color palette of the ships and space, the division of combat, the weapons, the leap from tactical to strategic, not just the graphical interface.

    It feels like swearing off strategy games because they don't have the Command and Conquer interface.

    edit: Dammit! Why isn't terraria in the cloud?

    I've received an invite to the family sharing system. If anyone is able to send me a sharing request, I'd like to play with it.

    won't be home until midnight, though, so if you do and I don't respond, don't worry.

    On the subject of Warframe, if anyone gets one of those 170 platinum codes and just has no use/need/want for it, I would be super happy to relieve you of it for my son who has become quite a Warframe addict the last few weeks. Code get. Thanks, @rikdaly!

    Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons is absolutely incredible and everyone (with a controller) should play it.

    The control scheme -- each brother controlled by a separate stick/trigger -- is as good as it's cracked up to be. It is beautiful, charming, fun and overflowing with feels.

    Seriously the feels. I feel pretty confident saying that it is solidly in the top three with Spec Ops and TWD. To the Moon does what it does well, but there's not much actual game there, you know? The brothers, meanwhile, are Nathan Drake-ing all around this cool, Hans Christian Warcraft world. A world which gets dark at points. Wow. I was routinely tempted to screenshot the hell out of this thing, but I think the places you go and how the world evolves are so interesting and compelling that even that would constitute a spoiler.

    This game is so good that the control scheme itself has feels by the end of the game!

    It is short (4 hours give or take), although that's a virtue for the 'mature' gamer with limited time as far as I'm concerned.

    For reals brilliant game. Possibly even flawless. Thanks so so much to @Ceno for gifting me this last month. Just like everyone should play Spec Ops and TWD, everyone should play Brothers. It is that good.

    Everyone in the warframe thread always says weapon and warframe slots, everything else can be obtained through grinding. Orkin reactors are pretty useful too though.

    Picked up Bionic Dues, as I'm a sucker for anything vaguely rogue-like.
    Pretty hard so far.

    Ooo, that looks neat.

    More info on this game please. it twinged my buttons with 'turn based' and 'rogue like', but i cant watch videos at work. would like some impressions.

    Haven't gotten far at all, but it's a decent take on the genre. You pick a party of four mechs - there are six types, and you can mix 'n match as you please. You choose a pilot, which has a strategic ability of some sort. Then you end up looking at the strategic map, which is a little bit like FTL's; a bunch of random nodes connected to each other. Each node is a mission, of which there seems to be a pretty good variety. You select a mission and go blow stuff up.
    Only one of your mechs is active at any given time, but you can hotswap as you go. Tactical mode is turn-based on a grid. Lots of stuff going on. After a mission the doomsday clock advances one day (more, for certain missions) and various enemies level up (seems to be random). You get randomly generated loot in a type and amount depending on mission type and how successful you were - wiping on a mission does not end the game, though in practice I suspect you are probably fucked if you do. Loot feels kinda Diablo-3-ish. There's a decent variety of stuff - I can see some build possibilities, but I have no idea yet what might be most useful.

    When the doomsday clock has advanced fifty days, there is apparently some kind of ultimate robot assault on your HQ. The exact numbers and types of enemies supposedly depend on your performance in the game so far.

    I've heard good things about it, but....okay, so Patrick Klepek of Giant Bomb recently answered a question on his tumblr.
    "I have not played Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons. Nor has anyone spoiled me on what the apparent big ending moment of Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is. Is it cynical to look at it and go "Well, probably one of them dies or is otherwise grievously injured, because it's a story designed to be emotional"? It seems like in people's quests to avoid spoiling it, they make it super apparent what the spoiler inevitably has to be. Can't gaming stories move past that tacky cliche?"

    The beauty in Brothers is not the story it tells, but how it tells it.

    I know it's hard to answer such a question without spoiling it further, but is Brothers a game heavily reliant on a twist ending of sorts?

    I don't think you can send share request unless that person has installed a game on your computer with their account. And the only other way to share is that person logging in on that computer and authorizing that machine.

    I had heard there were framerate issues with AC 3. Is there any truth to that? $7.50 will be my magic price for it, personally.

    @idx86 I bought it last night and played the tutorial, I didn't notice any issues on my ancient GTX260 with everything on high, not sure if it will stay that way when I get out in the open though but I'll find out tonight

    Okay, sounds good. The stuff I read was related to ATI chipsets, but I didn't know if GeForce stuff was affected too. Please let me know how you get along. I have a GTX 460, although I have heard there will be so e price drops forthcoming on 660s so I may upgrade soon.

    I've played a bit more now and I'm in Boston, it did slow down a bit so I lowered a couple of settings and haven't run into any issues so far

At that point, it's too easy to rationalize buying them and I do so.) This one might have to be an exception to that "rule" though.

    No argument there! It's definitely more one of those things that makes more sense in your head than it does when you actually use logic. I guess I think that maybe I might lose interest in some of the unbought games by the time I'm ready to buy them, but that's pretty unlikely.

    @cooljammer00, jclast has the right of it. Regardless of what does or doesn't happen, the delivery is consistently fantastic.

    Actually, I meant to say before that if you have a hangup in games about putting children in harms way (like some people have hangups about violence against women in games), then this is not the game for you. Shit gets perilous.

    For reals brilliant game. Possibly even flawless. Thanks so so much to @Ceno for gifting me this last month. Just like everyone should play Spec Ops and TWD, everyone should play Brothers. It is that good.

    I've had my eye on this one for a while! It sounds like exactly the kind of game I would adore. I've been trying to hold off and wait for it to go on sale, but the temptation is growing... (I'm sure I would have caved already if I wasn't so determined to someday catch up with my backlog. I'm trying to avoid getting new games - unless they're really on sale. At that point, it's too easy to rationalize buying them and I do so.) This one might have to be an exception to that "rule" though.

    The irony being that by not buying games and focusing on your backlog you are now creating a backlog of games you want to play but haven't purchased yet.

    That's more of a forelog, though, isn't it?

    You can get that snipped as a rite of passage, no?

    Isn't it a tad early to be speculating about Christmas 2013 sale prices?

    OH GOD. You have called the GabeN with your non-expectance of sales.
    Tomorrow starts the brand new 2 week long Halloween sale event thanks to you.

    We usually do get a Halloween sale, but it's never as big as Summer/Christmas sale. I'm pretty sure we even have had Thanksgiving sales. We are literally entering the season of sales, and not just with steam, but everywhere. Hold on to your butts.

    The Thanksgiving sale was great. It was all (or mostly) multi-packs so you could pass games around super easily.

    That one time. Wish they'd bring it back
