Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Elephant in the Room (a game exclusive to Humble it appears)
and a demo for the Cortex Command guy's next game.
The next month's early unlock is ARK Survival Evolved, and given it is 12 bucks for a month that seems like a really good deal given I'm not sure the game has hit that price alone yet, let alone with 5+ other games.
Durante has fixed Tales of Symphonia's most glaring issue, the internal resolution being stuck to 720p.
Is that really its most glaring issue? I thought the DRM shenanigans with it writing a new exe to the C: drive every time you start it was the most glaring issue?
I mean, it's a shitty DRM but one that was easily broken and doesn't really seem to affect much. It's more of a "This is stupid and makes little sense" thing given it's a more intrusive DRM than Zestiria, the brand new game in the series.
Anyway Durante has an article up about it and other shitty PC ports from likes of Koei Tecmo at PC gamer:
So... all these crazy anime games keep being put in my face on Steam. Are they just that popular or have I somehow wandered my way into an anime hellscape algorithm? No matter how many times I tell Steam I'm not interested, it keeps putting more of them in my discovery queues and recommended lists.
 Holy shit this thread is heavy. I was not prepared.
I was in this phase in recommendations during the winter sale. I think owning anything remotely anime or Japanese makes Steam think you want all the games about fucking catgirl maids and shit. No matter the amount of not interesteds I'd push, I'd even get sequels to those games recommended to me after.
Part of it is that they have extremely dedicated fanbases so that means lots of very positive reviews so they seem to be flagged as well reviewed and popular.
