    What is Dungeon Keeper? It's only the classic game of creating a den of evil with which to entrap and torment the heroes of the world.

    I remember with Dungeon Keeper 2 I had to turn down the volume anytime my Mom came near just in case there were any Dark Mistresses in my dungeon.

    I just finished my winter semester and I have THREE DAYS before spring starts. I feel like a starving person who's just been rescued and dropped off at an all-you-can-eat buffet. This may very well kill me.

    Let's be fair. There were always Dark Mistresses in your dungeon.

    Dungeon keeper is one of my favorite games. It was so good when it came out.

    I remember the later dungeons would grind my PC to a halt when I sent my minions into battle. I would have to scroll away from the action just to keep my FPS above 10.

    I haven't gone back to it in a couple of years so it'll be interesting to see how it holds up.

    The least I can do is buy the 2nd one after gog giving me the first for free.

    Okay, no more new games until I beat one.

    I have too many games. It was easier when I only had a mac and had like five games that I played all the time but now there are too many options, too many deals. If anyone on Steam sees me buying a new game then you need to leave me very angry disapproving messages.

    Man I was just thinking about Giants Citizen Kabuto recently. I think it was when Sacrifice was getting talked up a bit. That was a fun weird game.

    I played it about a year ago and made it a quarter of the way through before getting distracted and it has aged surprisingly well. It's still a funny goofy great game.

    One of these days, I will finally manage to play a full multiplayer set (5 mecs, 3 reapers, 1 kabuto) of Giants. I've only managed to play a four player game of that and it was fucked because the balance isn't there.

    L4D people are making a game called Evolve where you are a 4 head hunter team trying to take down 5th player monster that evolves as time goes on.

    Looks like the type of game we wanted overstrike to be.

    So, I'm not even entirely sure where to post this, but it's too good to ignore.

    Remember that terrible game that came out on Steam at the end of last month called Guise of the Wolf? Totalbiscuit did a very unfavorable critique of it on one of his WTF is series. Well, the developer, FUN Creators, is currently trainwrecking themselves.

    First, someone issued a copyright strike on the WTF is video which got it taken down. It was a little unclear at first who issued the copyright strike, then it was narrowed down to have come from FUN Creators. FUN Creators denied that they had issued the strike.

    TB then tweeted a screenshot of an e-mail correspondence his associate had in his request to have FUN Creators retract the strike, which in their reply, FUN Creators admitted to having issued the strike. This screenshot can be seen in the reddit post here: http://www.reddit.com/r/Cynicalbrit/comments/1xxvuc/email_from_the_guise_of_the_wolf_people_to_tb/

    FUN Creators then tweeted a response accusing TB of photoshopping the correspondence e-mail entirely. Their twitter is at http://twitter.com/funcreators . They also accused TB of 'blackmailing' them, in which I'm pretty sure they have no idea what blackmail actually means.

    TB's associate then created a short video of him accessing the e-mail in question in Gmail, showing the full headers, etc. Now, in the comments on reddit, someone noted that the headers themselves don't actually prove anything in particular, as the e-mail was sent from a server that wasn't verified or denied and the IP wasn't the same as their website's IP (not that that means much itself, e-mail is often handled from a separate machine anyway). But it does show it isn't photoshop and would have to be a waaay more elaborate fake if it was a fake. This is, of course, ignoring the fact that TB has no real reason to fake it in the first place.

    FUN Creators then retweeted this video and have now stated that "they wonder why TB is doing this" and that they're going to "stop talking about this incident".

    The whole thing is really damn bizarre, they're trying to discredit TB in a really strange mix of bad English and ignorance, several weeks after the video was put up.

    TB's had this stuff happen before.

    Which is weird because you'd think after the first few incidences people would've figured out that he's the last youtube personality you want to throw that kind of crap at.

    Be that as it may, TB's not in the wrong here.

    And yes, this did happen fairly recently with Day One: Garry's Incident. They did the 'copyright' strike shortly after the video went up and I believe ultimately TB got the strike removed. Youtube has a 3 strikes policy where if you have 3 strikes on your account, your account is shut down permanently, so this is pretty serious for someone whose channel is their livelihood. Not to mention when the strikes in question are utter bullshit.

    Are strikes different from the random DMCA complaints from people who aren't the companies?

    the namco store is running a promo where a bunch of games are 50% off by themselves, but 75% off if you buy more than one.
    notably this lets you get Pac-Man CE DX and the full dlc pack for $4.50 (it was just 7.50 on steam daily). it also has Dark Souls and a couple other somewhat notable games

    Well, then, for the price of free I suppose I should do something about that.

    I also remember wanting to play that Giants game at one point, but I never had the computer for it.

    And most importantly (for my backlog) I have conquered Skyrim. Not just beaten, I have done every quest, gotten every item, dotted every 'i' and crossed every 't'. And gotten every achievement! You know, except siding with the Imperials or the Vamps, since those are exclusive of the other side and both Tullius and Harkon were utter tools. But I'm done! Now on to Castlevania! WOOOOOOOOO!

    If your account gets three copyright strikes, it gets suspended.
    Maybe TB is protected through some other company to have the strikes revoked or something but afaik that's how it works.

    I believe so... I think the DMCA thing is an automated system sort of, the copyright holder can claim that some sort of video or audio is owned and videos that use that thing can't be monetized. The system will go through and any video that has the video or audio in it is automatically removed from the monetization system if it's in it.

    This is a copyright violation claim against a specific video in which the video is immediately taken down and a strike is issued against the channel.

    Edit: And in relation to DaxterMax's comment above, TB just tweeted that Polaris (presumably their lawyers) is now handling the issue. Polaris, formerly The Game Station, is a group sort of like Machinima (in a way) which TB is a part of, so he does have a bit of protection more than just a standalone channel might have.

    Thankfully, Steam tags are on the job.

    Yeah well, it didn't help Day One, and according to the Steam metrics that Northernlion tweeted earlier today, in the last 48 hours, a maximum of two people have been seen playing Guise of the Wolf at any particular time so...

    Its some sort of puzzle adventure game where you help the ruling body fight the werewolves and must fight to cure your own infection. The videos speak for themselves and the whole game is a disappointment to those of us who wanted and entire game built around being a werewolf and fighting the infection.

    All TB has to do is point to the videos and ask if anything he said in them is inaccurate.

    If these geese didn't want bad press, they shouldn't have released a bad game.
