    @CuvisTheConqueror saw that I was a weak, flabby manbag, filled with doubt and loathing. He bestowed upon me Brutal Legend! Now I am full of Ummmmmleeeeeetssss!!!!!!!!

    I, for one, enjoyed the Mako.

    Pinball FX2 PSA:

    Everyone who is playing PFX2 regularly, make sure your large Steam avatar image is working. Seems broken large avatar images is behind the problem. @rikdaly was helpful in testing this for me. (For those of you friends with him, try restarting steam and trying PFX2 again)

    I think steam broke large avatars recently, cause it seems a lot of people have problems with them (myself included) a simple re-upload should fix it.

    That might be the most fabulously obscure game-breaking bug I can remember. Kudos. But how the fuck did you track that down? :lol:

    Yup, just checked and it looks like my large avatar is borked, I'll get it re-uploaded. Unfortunate for the Pinball FX guys that this happened during their daily.

    Re: Saints Row IV. Got a weird bug last night where during missions I could hear other character's dialogue but when the Boss spoke, his lips moved but I got no audio. I haven't played since last night, but is this just one of those bugs where a restart fixes it?

    Reading the forums on Steam and then poking around with my own random theories based on what other people had experienced.

    I bought the Humble Bundle for two games I didn't have and think I'm going to give the rest away.

    What is this PA G&T Adventure Team thing?

    Heard the proposition that RIAA and MPAA should join forces and form "Music And Film Industry Association"?

    So the game isn't out, but there's a demo of PAC-MAN Championship Edition DX+ up on Steam. It's time to eat a million ghosts.

    EDIT: That demo is a bit more restrictive than I like. There's already a time limit, but the demo stops when the countdown reaches 3 minutes. Still excited for the full game finally being on PC next week.

    It's a steam group we use as a chatroom for general steam things as well as hosting giveaways on steamgifts. If you post your profile up here or join the chat and ask for an invite we'll be more than happy to drag you aboard.

    Occasionally we also go on quests to slay a dragon and win the heart of a princess
    The Newell needs those hearts (apparently they are used as power supply for the Steam servers).

    So I wonder if there's any chance that any of the upcoming announcements (I think there's 3?) will involve Steam running on the X1 or the PS4.

    I'd assume not a chance in hell without the national debt changing hands. The big 3 wouldn't want to give up publishing control with them already taking a hit on the hardware. But I suppose weirder things have happened.

    I don't mean as it's like OS or something; but just a side thing integrated into games that are also steamworks, kinda like uplay and such, like they did with Portal 2 on the PS3; let some cross platform stuff happen and such. Of the two I could see it happening on the PS4 more than the X1, but Microsoft might be getting the hint, shutting down GFWL and all.

    I can't tell if Hydrophobia Prophecy is supposed to be/become a survival horror game yet. Drowning to death is scary enough, but then they keep showing these corpses in such a way that it's like "Whoa! Dead body and loud noises and camera zooms!"

    Nope. Just think of it as Mirror's Edge with better gunplay and a shitload more water.

    also i'm disturbed to see that only 9 people on my steam friends list own The Darkness 2. it's fantastic and i've replayed it many times. so next time it's on sale try to remember to PM me and i will buy it for you, depending on whether I've kept my job or not. or else i'll just buy some copies for giveaways.

    Well there you go, then. To think of all the games from just this past generation were either never released on PC or licensing issues caused problems. Prey, for one.

    I have finished Saints Row IV, it was very good. I am excited with what they might do with that ending and post-credits.

    Now I've started The Bureau! It is pretty neat. Combat is fun and it looks great. Between this and SRIV though I have been playing a lot of Mass Effect-esque games lately.

    SRIV takes a lot of cues from Mass Effect actually. The gameplay is quite different but having your own ship to return to, loyalty missions for each crew member, other little references and bits as well as Keith David reminded me a lot of ME2.

    I wouldn't call it "like" Mass Effect, in so much as it was parodying some aspects of Mass Effect.

    So I got the Egosoft Weekly Bundle, and that's a lot of X's in my library now.

    There's three X3's and what is this I don't even?

    What I'm asking is: which should I go with first; which X3 anyway? Albion Prelude, Reunion or Terran Conflict? Or should I go more old school and start with one of the earlier ones? There's X and X-Tension?

    What fucking order do these damn games go in? :lol:
