    I got an email from Steam today that read "Uninitialized is now available on Steam!"

    What the hell is Uninitialized?, I thought. I have no memory of a game called Uninitialized. But I was about to go on the road, so I could only think about it.

    I opened the email and got my answer:

    I have absolutely no idea what is going on in that multi lol. But the blue player is named Koopa and I find that strangely coincidental.

    Win by reaching the top or knocking the other down. The rest is all in the details. It's the most accessible fighting game ever made.

    Had a successful gaming outing today though I do need to make a tweak and have people gather in the PA FNG Steam chat starting around 3:30 pm PST so that we can hash out which game we are playing.

    Tonight it was 4 player Monaco and much smooth thieving was had--as other thieves died/ran screaming away from the guards.

    Thanks to @Blackhawk1313 @Qanamil and @destroyah87 for being partners in crime this night and having many a good heist.

    Hi all, just a reminder that today, tomorrow and Saturday at 4 pm PST I'll be holding Friday Night Gaming sessions for an hour each (possible to go longer since I have the free time).

    Friday Night Gaming Steam Group--we'll gather in the group chat there as time approaches.

    Games this Week (as according to the poll)
    Magicka 1/Magicka 2
    Terraria
    Castle Crasher
    Torchlight 2
    Monaco

    F2P Options:
    Warframe
    SCP: Secret Labratory

    Games are subject to whims of players who show up and nothing is set in stone.

    I hope to continue this through my school semester, but I'll see. Classes come first after all.

    Epic might be swimming in a pool of money thanks to the success of Fortnite and the debut of its exclusive-gobbling Steam competitor, but it’s also—to hear the Better Business Bureau tell it—in hot water with its own customers.

    Today, the Better Business Bureau announced that it’s awarded Epic with an F, its lowest grade possible, citing 247 “unanswered customer complaints” on its website.

    Well that's not a good sign.

    Looks like Hero Academy 1 and 2 and Orcs Must Die Unchained are being closed down in April:


    I got Hero Academy a long time ago...and never played it. Maybe it was in a bundle?

    I loved Orcs Must Die! and what I played of Orcs Must Die! 2, but as soon as they announced Unchained and showed it was a multiplayer game, I lost interest.

    The company apparently has two new games in development. Hopefully it's something closer to what I enjoy!

    Also yeah the BBB is not a government entity, it has no actual power, and no one pays it any attention. It's basically an extortion ring (think Yelp but for big corporations).

    I liked Hero Academy quite a bit but was terrible at it. Orcs Must Die and OMD2 were both great. I love the board game, and had no interest in their MOBA thing. I sincerely hope that one of the next two games in development is Orcs Must Die 3 and that it's coming to PS4 so I can play it in local multi.

    I'd take it on PC and play solo, but I'd absolutely love local multi on a console for it.

    Nearly every Steam review and description of Atom RPG I read said the same thing: It’s old-school Fallout, but Soviet. “That can’t be,” I said to myself as I waited for the game to download. “That’s too reductionist.” A few hours of playtime later, I’ve revised my opinion: Atom is old-school Fallout, but Soviet.

    I played some Hero Academy 1 in it's heyday...

    g6ewvqt7pg03.png

    And that was just the Steam version. Probably at least that much on iOS from 2010-2012 as well. By the time I stopped playing, I was ranked in the top 100 with each team. I even created a fan-made expansion team to be added into the game. While they couldn't use my team, it did get featured on their Facebook page, much to the chagrin of the player base wanting to play my creation.

    Hero Academy 2 though...yeah, that game was a pure money grab. The gutted the heart and soul of the first game in an attempt to make that Hearthstone/Clash Royale money. A large majority of the base from the first game, myself included, hated the new game and hoped they'd bring it back in line with the original. Sadly it never happened.

    It sucks to see these games no longer being supported, but I get why. With any luck, RE won't have to close their doors.

    How is the translation though? The main draw of the original fallouts was the narrative design and C&C. Which is why wasteland 2 fell on it's face, despite having members of the original team

    Didn’t Wasteland 2 make an absolute goose-ton of money?

    I for one enjoyed it’s narrative design and tight combat encounters, and IIRC the amount of copies sold and review scores indicated that a lot of other people did, too?

    ...what definition of ‘fell on its face’ are we using here?

    Atom looks neat, too!

    So Catherine is out on Steam now? I remember enjoying that game, but once I was done with it, I was done with it.

    Maybe I'll just wait for the Switch port. Because at this point I'm willing to believe just about anything will get a Switch port.

    Basically, if you pay for accreditation, you get to decide whether a complaint was addressed positively or not (with some limits, but it's heavily skewed in your favor). If you don't, the customer gets to decide, no matter how unreasonable their case may be.

    Not that I'm trying to defend Epic, but does this article go into detail regarding the "complaints"?

    Because the younger portion of Fortnite's playerbase (of which there are many, as I understand it) apparently flock to Epic's website to complain anytime a weapon is added, removed, or tweaked in Battle Royale.

    I would ignore those as well.

    I'd be more inclined to pick it up there in due course.

    As I said in the Division thread, I buy my Ubisoft games on uPlay anyway because if you play any games on there you’re guaranteed a constant 20% off, even pre orders now.

    Oh yeah, also need to use up my uplay points before they expire, which still seems like a move I don't particularly like.

    Well I was just going to turn them into coupons so I wouldn't forget but good luck getting the Uplay Club to load so you can even get those coupons.

    I'm starting a new organization, it's the Steam Thread Accreditation Bureau.

    For a nominal fee you can register and become accredited. For a slightly less nominal fee you can file a complaint about another Steam Thread user who is registered, which may impact their Forumer Rating. For an even less nominal fee you can nullify someone else's complaint to maintain your current rating.

    Oh god I think I just invented the SA forums.
