    It also had a movie that was decent enough. Probably only if you liked the show though.

    It has its ups and downs, but overall it was pretty good.

    It's become harder to watch ever since I found out that between Jayne and the actor playing Jayne, Jayne is actually the better person of the two.

    To me, Firefly was the moment I figured out that Wheedon spends too much time up his own ass.

    There have definitely been points in the game where I feel like Mal just trying to hold the ship together long enough to get paid and refuel.

    The ship in FTL: Faster Than Light breaks down almost as often as Serenity does in the show!

    I've heard nice things about Ring Runner: Flight of the Sages, but never got around to trying it out.

    So much for those 0 byte updates meaning fewer redistributable downloads in the future. Just had 63 more 0 byte updates. And at least some were from games that had them last time, too.

    I didn't enjoy it but I heard people compare Rebel Galaxy to Firefly, at least thematically.

    Man Cowboy Bebop is great but "spaceships" is literally the only thing they have in common. Watch them both! (Firefly doesn't hold up super great but it still has some really solid episodes/scenes.)

    I mostly just know some quotable stuff from Firefly that's relevant today.

    Like "Curse your sudden yet inevitable betrayal." That fits real well with Steam chat.

    Wasn't there some Firefly MMO or something that was supposedly coming along eventually? IIRC there was one that bombed and then another one was being worked on. I dunno, it was years ago.

  • cooljammer00cooljammer00 Hey Small Christmas-Man!Registered User regular
    A couple of Amnesia Fortnights ago, one of the Double Fine devs pitched a game as basically Firefly. Had a lot of space battles, breaking an entering, stealing, bounties and whatnot. Seemed interesting, but now that I type it out, everything about that pitch has probably been done by now in other games.

    There was a Firefly tabletop RPG. I own a copy. Though to be fair, they make a tabletop RPG for pretty much anything.

    Yeah it was supposed to be XCOM style combat in the Firefly universe but it was for mobile and it's kind of just disappeared after being announced.

    Edit: The Facebook page still exists.
    Final post from just about 3 years ago "We're still here. We're still flyin'. Game is still in development. Stay tuned."

    Outlaw Star is the one Firefly directly lifted some key scenes from. even then, other than those scenes they share only a very passing resemblance.

    Personally I think the Desperados 3 method would suit Firefly much better. Large hubs with mission zones around them, all in real time with an ability sync button (basically Shadow Tactics with a large town hub joining missions).

    You could land in a town, walk around and talk to people, get local jobs, go around and do them, hop back in your ship, fly somewhere else, repeat. Even have jobs that take place over multiple planets as they unfold.

    I had the Serenity one at one point but never got the opportunity to play it. It seemed cool, though. Good atmospheric sourcebook, at least!

    That's the one. Came out around the same time as the movie.

    The other thing (besides DOA5) that I grabbed this sale to get up to that £30 mark for the £5 discount (gods, I'm a whore) was Far Cry 5 for its absurd-by-modern-Steam-standards 75% off. Couple of hours in, I'm liking it so far! I already have a doggo. And he's a good boy, yes he is. He's cute and fuzzy and he rips throats out of motherfuckers on command. And I can get a mountain lion kitteh later as well. More games should offer this!

    Anyone have input on Sims 4? My daughter has been watching vids and wants to try it. My wife is a bit apprehensive because she's not sure if there are any parental controls. Is there an older Sims that may work better?

    I don't have any Sims experience so I'm not sure how to handle the situation.

    The kids are 8 and 10.

  • Santa ClaustrophobiaSanta Claustrophobia Ho Ho Ho Disconnecting from Xbox LIVERegistered User regular
    I don't know about 4, but my experience with Sims games are they are very benign. There is no explicit content (By default. Mods can change that.), but there are 'adult themes'. Death can happen and Death can appear. Two sims can engage in 'woohoo'. Bathroom visits (toilet and shower) are accompanied by a blur.

    The major changes over time are mainly graphical, so going with an older version, if you choose to try it out, means that you have a better chance of getting most or all of the add-ons for a cheaper price. It can get very expensive to own all of the content.

    I expect there are some controls available to prevent online purchases in any of the titles with a built-in storefront, but maybe others have more detailed info.

    I wouldn't say it's a children's game, but it isn't quite adult.

    Oh Hey I just want this one steam game so I guess I'll buy it for the sale.

    Oh look if I spend 10 more dollars I get 5 dollars off.

    ...

    DAMNIT!!!

    Edit: As long as I am posting does anybody have any particular opinions on Heartbeat? The trailer looked really neat and the game looks cute but i was hoping for a Giant Bomb quick look or somthing to see it in action first. RPGs can be really hit and miss for me. (if you respond to this part feel free to @ me so I see it)
