    Unfortunately you can't create and upload your own head designs to the Steam Workshop, just level designs created with the ingame editor.
    Otherwise there would be tens of forumer heads uploaded by now. :#

    Mine would be the easiest head to make. Really simple, I'll outline the steps.

    I can't support Fez because the developer is a colossal goose. I had thought he'd decided to vanish from the public eye after his previous kerfluffle but he's gone on record recently and stated that LP'ers are stealing money from him when they play Fez and that all their ad revenue should belong to him.

    That's... yeah, that's corporate level goosery there.

    Not to start a debate about it, but I don't see how at least a portion shouldn't go to the dev. But that's because I feel the same way about used game sales. My opinion is meaningless since it's not something that affects me or will change any time soon, so whatever. But I don't see this as yet another "Oh, Fish..." moment.

    I just want Fez 2, dammit. That logo promised things to me. I want those things.

    It would be nice, yes. Legally though, it's fair use. (Game sales are first-sale doctrine, and I don't see why the dev should get a cent there - same as any other manufacturer and secondhand sales)

    Anyone who thinks a $400 console is ever going to compete with a $1000 custom rig in power is delusional.

    It's depressing that they're willing to gut their own product that way though. If people prefer to buy the PC version, how does that hurt them (as long as PC supports console specs on the low end I mean)? I'm curious the reasoning behind that.

    "...there is definitely a lot of push coming from publishers to not make the experience so different on consoles as to alienate people into thinking that next generation is not as powerful as PC."

    IE, a lot of push to prevent people from realizing the truth.

    Which makes no sense, because they bundled in Watch_Dogs with higher end GeForce cards this month. Why would buy a brand new graphics card for a 'next gen' experience if I don't actually get that?

    Whoa, @Iolo‌ , with the amount of people you've hit on this page alone, I believe this qualifies as a spree.

    Thank you so, so much for The Banner Saga. It looks gorgeous, and I can't wait to jump in.

    Speaking of vikings, after downloading 10 gigs of texture packs and HD updates, I started up Skyrim last night and Gwendolyn the viking is smashing things with her big warhammer. I put on some Amon Amarth in the background and let her go to town on some bandits for a little while. Almost shed a tear at how happy I was at that moment.

    It's not new for this thread to sort of get treated as a catch-all PC gaming thread sometimes for lack of an actual one. That said, better to address it in the specific threads for The Division (I know we've got one, although it's probably several pages deep) and other Ubisoft games.

    It's probably an unfair comparison given how awesome TWD is, but I've heard that it is not as spectacular as their previous works. A recent Game Informer podcast I listened to seemed to indicate that every other episode is good, and and that the overall experience is weighed down by the lack of character development/emotional attachment which isn't nearly as well done as TWD.

    I'm personally waiting until it's $5.00 or less, but that's also because I have a lot to play.

    @Lindsey Lohan
    Thanks a TON to @Elvenshae who launched the Kerbals my way. I think me and my son will boot it up tonight, it seems like the perfect type of game to keep him busy over the summer vacation and maybe do a nice combo breaker on his Minecraft addiction! We have 1 computer with me, my son and my niece sharing it this summer, I have a feeling that competition is going to be getting stiffer!

    You are absolutely welcome! I know you were waffling earlier because it's early access still, but believe me when I say that it has more content in its early access state than many whole games have on release. The next patch (coming Any Day Now / Soon (TM)) will be introducing the beginning of the financial side of the equation. The previous major patch introduced the career mode, where you get to research more and better parts over time.

    KSP is a great educational tool, too - after about an hour of it, you'll have a better handle on orbital mechanics and general spaceflight than anyone short of a NASA engineer. :D

    Hope everyone likes it, and feel free to drop by the KSP thread if you've got any questions!

    I've only played the first 2 episodes, but yes. The Wolf Among Us is worth the asking price. It's fun to be controlling a detective, and the combat QTE are surprisingly fun. Has just the right amount of Jurassic Park in it which I'm missing in TWD season 2 and gives me high hopes for Tales From The Borderlands.

    I've enjoyed Wolf Among Us quite a bit. It remains to be seen if they can stick the landing I suppose. Walking Dead is probably more universally appealing. Wolf Among Us has a different vibe. It's like Chinatown with storybook characters in 80's New York City. I'm also coming at it familiar with the books, so hard to say how much that impacts enjoyment. Similar to Walking Dead it's not going to be a super long game. But a well crafted story experience.
