    State of Decay is FFVI turned into a survival game. I'm convinced there's a mimic in the belly of the beast, I just have to find him.

    I need this explained to me in detail. Because I have serious kinemortophobia, but I fucking love FFVI.

    So I think I definitely want to recommend Probably Archery to everyone. The short version is that the game is basically QWOP or Surgeon Simulator 2013 except with archery. The longer version is my my objective review of the game plus this video I recorded of myself playing one of the game modes, which sums up the game pretty well:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PoCAR6vOn_k

    The game is 25% off right now so it's a good time to grab it. Let me know if you ever want to play multiplayer too - right now nobody is really playing so it would be nice to get some multiplayer matches played to augment my single player shenanigans.

    Real enough to be in urban dictionary ...

    Personally I really wish that this whole zombie trend in games would just die already, hopefully Rust removing them is the first step, I never even finished The Last of Us because I can't stand zombie games*.

    *unless said game is Saints Row the Third, in which my hate of zombies was counteracted by my love of beating them up with a dildo bat and also a
    Burt Reynolds cameo!!!

    So, like FFVI, you start off with a small crew trying to get by. Then you get a base and get access to more people. Once you have those people, you can set out with whoever you want, switching to that character, their skills and their inventory. Progressing through the game unlocks more characters to tool around with. Do well enough in the game and you can convince more character to sojourn out with you into the battle for survival.

    That's where the comparisons end, after that is a decent open world game with a B level crafting system. But its damn fun....aside from that one time feature.

    Also, don't go near the big guys when you're low on health, they will take advantage of that.

    Well, technically all terms are made up (particularly when there is a need for them) but that term for the fear of the moving dead is used in multiple places, sadly excluding Wikipedia (whose phobia list is devoid of a fear of the walking dead). It is far more appropriate than necrophobia, because while the dead might creep me out, I don't have pants-wetting, night-terror-producing, cry-like-a-3-year-old reactions to the dead. So kinemortophobia it is. Especially since my original search for the term months ago was the top Google result on a search of "Fear of Zombies". ;)

    What's midwinter?

    Kind of chilly but still topping 75 F when it feels like it with the occasional freeze that lasts all of two hours. Basically it's shorts and t-shirt weather for the beach, late winter though is wetsuit territory and I hear it's coming.

    I don't know much about midwinter short of my smartass answer and the wiki but state of decay doesn't seem that similar to it. State of decay you are not restricted to the amount of time you can play a character but you do get penalties if they are injured or you've played them for a while. Folks you control can die and occasionally npc's that can become pc's die on their own or due to your negligence if you lead them into a horde. (been a long time since I've played so don't quote me on this because a lot has changed.)

    Occasionally you would also run out of food and everyone just dies due to incompetence when perfectly good human meat was just left next to them.

    IsThereAnyDeal alerted me to the fact that Gamestop was selling FF8 for $6, the lowest I was likely to see before a Steam sale.

    I double-checked the page to ensure it was a Steam key and yep it all checked out. Then I get an email with order confirmation, which should have held the key I purchased. Instead it held a download link for Gamestop's app and told me I needed to download it, log in through it, then go to a tab and request the key I'd purchased already. After I'd done so, with no small amount of griping, and it was safely in my Steam library I went about uninstalling this magnificent pile of app. Except Gamestop doesn't include a handy-dandy "uninstall" feature so I had to go in through my PC's Control Panel and uninstall it that way. Luckily there wasn't any kind of last-minute "I'll not go quietly into that dark night" from the app and it seems to be gone now.

    That is the last time I will ever purchase a Steam key from Gamestop.

    Man, Rome II has really improved since earlier, but there's still some really lacking things.

    I'm defensive allies with Sparta. Sparta's at war with this smaller guy. Smaller guy basically goes and says to me "pay me some money and I'll become a client state. Part of your empire, pay you an annual fee, it'll be great." I go "sure!"

    Sparta's still at war with them. And there's no option for me in diplomacy to go and tell Sparta "hey, knock it off." Other than, I suppose, declaring war and requiring it as a peace term, but STILL.

    I've noticed while checking out Steamgifts after forgetting it existed for a while that there are a few indie devs using it to try and promote their games and/or fishing for greenlight votes.

    This really interests me. I've never been an indie game developer, but it seems like traditional low cost advertising for your upcoming or newly released PC game is having a website, and then promoting your game through webforums and maybe youtube, with traditional web advertising (like buying adspace on GameFaqs or IGN or something) of any seriousness being far out of your league economically.

    But here we have Steamgifts, where a giveaway can have thousands upon thousands of entries if the period is long enough or the game is popular enough.

    So let's say I'm an indie game developer (SmokeSoft? SoftStacks? We'll run a few possibilities and see which ones resonate best with our targeted focus testing) I could buy a new highly anticipated Steam release that is at a budget price point (say, the upcoming Resident Evil 4 re-release), and instead of paying out the ass for adspace on gaming websites or trying to hustle for interest on webforums (most forums do not have a dedicated indie game forum like we do, and do not tolerate shilling) I could instead do a Steamgifts giveaway promoting my game. So now for the cost of $20 I've gotten 5-10,000 people to look at my game promo. I don't know how much web advertising costs in comparison (and comparing the two would be difficult since my understanding is that a lot of web advertising is paid by clickthrough, not just by view), but still, that seems to be a pretty good return on your investment to me.

    I don't know how many people that use Steamgifts just click on the enter giveaway button without reading any of the text, but how many of them would pay attention to a web ad?

    It seems like Steamgifts could be of great use as an ultra low cost advertising solution for indie devs that is less scummy than sitewhoring on forums, and is immune to browser-based adblocking.

    Interesting.
