    This is great!

    ...but it seems they dropped support for Windows XP, which means it doesn't start on my toaster, which means I can't register the game. Sigh. :sad:

    This is the most amazing icing on the most amazing cake. (yes my metaphor needs work)

    Steam Battle has probably been one of my favorite things of 2015. I will miss reading the weekly misadventures of all the ships as we wonder the universe in search of Steam.

    I mentioned that it had lasted longer that Firefly, I think I may miss it just as much.

    Steam battle, as silent as I was, was something I enjoyed watching, even if I didn't squeak up half as much as anyone there. And as a gift that keeps on giving, this means I can even take part in the upcoming Steam Sumer Sale, a gift in and of itself. I do hope this happens again, as it was a lot of fun watching Sci-Fi adventures iiiiiiiin spaaaaaaaace. Maybe next time it could be something like Game of Thrones-style houses, with betrayal and murder abounding? Just a suggestion. :biggrin:

    I tabbed out of Marvel Heroes, a bit weary after grinding Punisher to 60 in a few hours. I literally hit 60, tabbed out while zoning back to base, and a window popped up. What window?

    I've heard very good things about this game, and once I can drag myself away from MH i'll be sure to give it a try. Thank you so much Captain @Pixelated Pixie <3 You'll always be a winner* to me!

    @Shade strikes with Squishy The Suicidal Pig, thanks Shade!

    Also beat Sword of Asumi it was a big fat meh, meehhh.

    I blew this guy off on a date cause I"m barely reading this, he comes over to my room, "that date was really fun" "yeah I had fun too". Other choices don't matter that much.

    Also deviant art...art with the characters facing the camera even tho they're talking to each other. Asumi almost always has her mouth open. And for a master assassin she gets snuck up on a lot.

    It's also very short.


    This is the first screen, spot the grammatical errors!
    ?.jpg

    The backgrounds are static with things like "it's getting very dark out" while Asumi's in her bright very obviously noon at the latest room. Or the pool being so packed (it isn't).

    And seriously her mouth is almost always open and it bugs me more than it should.
    ?.jpg

    The artist can do good art too but were lazy and didn't. Also how do you like your salads? I like mine with words.

    So turns out the Rougelike did get 2nd Place despite our best efforts. So @akajaybay hit me with a Wolfenstein: The New Order key! @Shade also struck with Squishy the Suicidal Pig because he is sad his package has not reached me yet.

    Thank you both!

    Life is weird.

    And the ISS Rougelike flip-flopped into second place thanks to a math audit... like something out of a space comedy.

    As 2nd place prizes had already been awarded, @akajaybay went way above and beyond and distributed another round of 2nd place prizes. INSANE RIGHT? :surprised:

    Well, SteamGifts has been down for most of the day so i'm not going to bother relying on it for this, i'll just handle it all manually.

    I picked out a few games that I really enjoyed from the Humble Store sale so other people can give them a try. Just send me a PM here saying which ones you'd like to sign up for and i'll make a list and in a couple of days (but before the sale ends so the people who don't win can still get them themselves if they want) i'll do some RNG work and send them out to the winners. I'll reroll any duplicate wins, but feel free to sign up for any or all of them.

    Risk of Rain
    Mercenary Kings
    Gunpoint
    The Swapper

    Guess i'll repost this for today, even though the thread is almost over. I'll probably choose sometime tomorrow afternoon. The odds of winning are pretty good still.

    So, as others have been noting, @Akajaybay crunched the numbers and concluded the Rougelike (props to @iolo for giving the ship an amazing name) actually got second place. As a second place prize I was sent a humble bundle link for Hand of Fate. I tossed this on my wishlist back when it was on early access and kinda forgot about it since. Thank you so much for this, I'm always up for a good roguelike and this looks like a really good one. Again, thank you Akajaybay for running the steam battle, I always looked forward to reading the updates for last year's steam battle and this year was no exception.
