    I really hope PGI doesn't drop the ball with this.

    Honestly, even if MW5 isn't great, if it leads to the older games getting a re-release either on Steam or GOG I'll be happy.

    Of course, I want it to be awesome, but as always, we'll see.

    I doubt it's that easy unfortunately. The Mechwarrior IP has had a storied history.

    Oh, I know. But somebody (can't remember if it was PGI or not) had a short-term license for 4 at least, hopefully they can get that renewed to help build up some hype.

    Fallout 4 + Settlement building + Mods = <3

    What mods are those? That looks pretty nice.

    Some of it is vanilla, but I am using Brighter Settlement Lights and Homemaker, which adds a lot of new settlement items, like the trees. I just threw this together last night and plan on tweaking and adding more:

    It also looks cool during the day, where it shades the whole platform.

    Ok, the poll was pretty clear. Accepting gifts and doing a cute stream were the most popular options. So for my incentives,

    At $1000, I'll do a cute stream. This means a stream in which I'll be playing a selection of the cutest games I have and Benji's cam will be extra big. I'll also throw in some storytime breaks.

    At $2000, I'll be accepting gifts during the sale (limited to one game per person).

    It is exceedingly funny that one of the incentives to donate to charity is the ability to gift a person games.

    Never change Steam thread. Never change.

    Ahaha you guys, I'm getting questions about this on steam, too. Ok, I'll try to be super clear and answer all of the questions I'm being asked in this one spot. One item per person. It can be a game, DLC, soundtrack, whatever. Bundles are a no-go. (They're a whole bunch of items.) This is for the duration of this upcoming winter sale only. I will not be accepting friend requests from alt accounts (and please no cheating with proxies). <3
    And just because I wouldn't put it past some of you, despite the fact that I don't own it, I won't be able to accept Dishonored 2. A family member is getting it for me for Christmas. <3

    Edit: This is for digital, Steam items only.

    Bit less this year - still rebuilding savings post-wedding/honeymoon, and with things as they are right now, I'm spreading my annual charitable givings around a bit more (National Park Foundation, EFF, etc).

    Also, seriously good on you, Maguano. I know the feeling of creeping dread going "shit, what did I get myself into?" watching the number tick up :P

    Calling it labyrinthine would be oversimplifying it. I'm cautiously optimistic, but I think they missed the mark by setting it during the Third Succession War. Gimme a Word of Blake Jihad game.

    Well, I just mean that a lot of the fanbase hated the Jihad. I didn't find it any more ridiculous than the rest of the background, but it seems safer to avoid it.

    I kinda hated it because it was just a mass killing of the universe, mostly written by people who'd never touched the universe before. I think the peak of the Battletech universe was the FedCom civil war, but MW4 wasn't a great representation of it for me.

    All I learned from MW2 were that the Clans were assholes. I was too young to understand what was going on. I ended up playing MW1 after the fact, which didn't help either.

    As someone that only touched the universe through pc games and novels, the whole thing struck me as a way for Wizkids to have a clean slate to have their Mechclix or whatever they were called spinoff game be its own thing. Not sure why that needed its own timeline though when they could have done a greatest hits approach and let you field a clan invasion omnimech against a Star League whatever.

    I really shouldn't do it, but that Lego Deal is pretty tempting......nah I only beat one game, and I'm struggling to start Supreme Commander up again to beat that. I can always get it in the summer sale. I've held off on that Arkham Knight bundle for God knows how long, and it just keeps getting cheaper and cheaper.

    Lego games are awesome! They're light hearted and funny puzzle platformers with collection bits. Sometimes the puzzles can be downright obscure, but that's pretty rare. Good for the conpletionist in you for your chosen series. Plus my daughter loves the dinos in Jurassic world or just the game in general for the lego movie game.

    Go buy the cheapest one you can get (probably Star Wars since it's the oldest) and try it out.

    If you don't like it than you're only out a few bucks and you'll have to come to terms with the fact that you are an emotionless lizardman.

    If you do like it than you'll be in luck, because there are a ton of Lego games from a ton of different franchises to get into, everything from Indiana Jones to Harry Potter to Marvel.

    The only thing about the Lego games is this one caution I give to you. Buy nothing until you've found and bought at least the 2x and 4x multiplier red bricks. They're very expensive but after that you can be like me and have billions of studs when you finally 100% the game.

    I'm slowly learning how programming works with Shenzhen I/O.
    I've had to crib *alot* of notes from Scott Manley and watching his vids over and over again.
    But the good news is that I've been able to go back to earlier puzzles and figured out how to optimize them to use few lines of code and/or power on my own.
    How do you programmers out there do this day in and day out? I know that Shenzhen is kids play compared to C# et al. but its kicking my ass.
