    Is that tweet supposed to imply ITVOG got canceled, or that those Campo Santo people are now working at Valve proper instead of their own game?

    More that it's implying that ITVOG is in Valve development limbo now.

    Truthfully, I mostly just miss Important if True and Idle Thumbs :(

    I mean, they basically scuttled Idle Thumbs because nobody on the show played video games anymore. There was a solid year where Danielle would be the only one who had anything to say each week and that's cause she's an active games journalist.

    Important if True was also fun, but these days I just get my Nick Breckon fix on Twitch.

    I guess Chris did some interview recently and said he hopes to bring back Idle Thumbs someday, but I doubt it will happen while he's employed by Valve.

    I dunno. Gabe has always seemed to care about his image. He has happily got involved in memes and videos. I could see him wanting some sort of legacy.

    His legacy is "I invented Steam".

    It's served him fairly well in his life so far.

    Just in case it hasn't been mentioned, the whole "EA returns to Steam!" thing (with the new Star Wars game) is a bit misleading. You still need an Origin account to link the game to, and it downloads/runs a thin version of Origin. On the plus(?) side, the price is the same so EA gets less money if you buy it through Steam.

    Also the process of launching the thin client only works with the latest Steam UI, so us holdouts have to suck it up and update if we want to run the game via Steam/thin client. Otherwise you can do a backup/update/restore dance to get the game registered with Origin, then just run Origin.

    That’s exactly how Ubisoft games work/worked. You actually own the game on both platforms, owning it on Steam also gives you Steam achievements, cards, etc. But launching from Steam just launches your uPlay/Origin version in their lite launcher.

    I really don’t see the problem, but I also don’t have a problem with Origin or uPlay.

    I guess the only difference is the update/UI thing. If I'd known it was gonna cause me grief to run the thing through Steam I would've just bought it on Origin. No biggie, though; ultimately I'm just complaining about the 10 extra minutes it took to get the game activated on Origin while also preserving my precious Steam UI.

    That one. The first one. To be fair, the two are not necessarily exclusive (though they might be), but the first one unquestionably.

    Theres going to be a sequel to Disc Creatures!

    *squeals like an excited teenage girl*

    Going to write a shitload of thoughts down on this game once I finally finish it but its easily one of the best experiences I've had from the genre outside of Pokemon and it deserves so much more attention. I frickin adore this game.

    Disc Creatures looked like a very good game in that genre. It looked from the screenshots like less of a copy and more of its own take on the genre. Im glad to hear it was successful enough to get a sequel, thats awesome.

    Man, it's a shame what they did to that series. It's like every new game was worse than the last. This looks pretty neat, though. Character design looks kinda Hollow Knight-ish (which makes sense cause they're bugs). Consider me interested!

    A is the first letter of the alphabet, so a = 1.
    There are 3 letters after A in Alyx, so we get a 3 from them.

    1 times 3 is 3.

    Ergo, Half-Life Alyx = Half-Life 3.

    Half Life: Alyx is Frog Fractions 2, I'm calling it right now.

    What's the entry cost to VR these days, anyway? Hopefully it's not VR only, every single VR exclusive FPS I've seen is either "You're stuck in one spot", or on rails like Time Crisis, or uses that incredibly dumb looking "point to a spot you want to be at and click on it and you'll walk over there" system for movement (and also requires hundreds of dollars in specialized hardware).

    Could be that Grav Gun Fetch with Dog level, but in VR.
