  1. The Nintendo Wii U is Great Thread

    More importantly, how many stars do those reviews have? I only bother read reviews rated 7 stars or above.
  2. DOTA 2

    It also acts as an auto-translator for when you get matched with people who don't speak your language (I assume so, at least).
  3. Torchlight II

    I've been leveling up my outlander's shadowling ammo skill a lot lately, and my favorite thing in this game now is that the bugs you can squish are able to spawn shadowlings. My guy is running around stomping cockroaches and making their ghosts fight for him.
  4. Torchlight II

    oops, I thought I was in the other Torchlight 2 thread.
  5. Torchlight II

    Wow, you guys were right about Act 3 being really good. I've only just started and all of the encounters so far feel much more substantial than Act 1 or 2. Also, on the first day of October I get a bunch of masks drop. Coincidence? (I hate it when my coolest looking armor has the lowest stats.)
  6. Torchlight II

    I just met the Djinni and I believe that over half of my play time now has been Act 2. This game really is huge, much much bigger than I expected. I am getting a bit bored with the desert setting though, so I'm really looking forward to Act 3! Also, is it normal for me to only just now find a healing spell? I rarely get spells drop (maybe because I'm an Outlander?) and I finally found a healing spell from a vendor. This should save me thousands of gold on potions now.
  7. FTL

    I'm really liking layout B of that ship. I try to get a teleport as quickly as I can and immediately start taking over ships. Sector 3 pretty much destroys me though, probably because I focus so much on leveling up my away team and teleport that my shields and weapons are pretty much useless :\
  8. FTL

    Have the devs talked at all about patching in any new features? Aside from basic stuff like Steam achivements, I'd love the ability to save/export replays.
  9. FTL

    I've always played on normal, but tonight decided to check it out on easy (partially to cheese my way through some achivements) and wow the difference is huge. I actually stopped playing around sector 5 just because I got bored, it was so stupidly easy. Normal is still so hard though.
  10. FTL

    Every time I jump to a solar flare, I think I'm so clever for opening all the airlocks to empty rooms and drain all the oxygen. It seems like every single time I do this, the very next thing that happens is my doors and oxygen systems go down.
  11. I think you guys are probably right that a system like this is undeniably biased like that. The worst case scenario I see is that Steam gets a lot more games, but a much less diverse selection. I'm not too pessimistic about it though because I think Valve has a financial incentive not to flood their storefront with samey pandering zombie games.
  12. It's interesting how Greenlight's entire purpose is to put *more* games on Steam, however everyone's concerns are that it will limit the selection instead. To counter you guys' example about games like Amnesia possibly having trouble on Greenlight, it's worth noting that Routine (Amnesia in space, as far as I can tell) was accepted by Valve after only about a week of voting. I found Routine through Greenlight, with no idea what it is, and immediately voted on it because it looks super cool. On the other hand, La-Mulana is a game with a very strong fanbase that has been asking for it on Steam for a while now, and it' still only 3% of its way to approval. It would be a real shame if it just sat in limbo forever, and Valve just assumed no one's interested because it isn't attracting a massive number of Greenlight votes. I assume that for short ~10 minute long story games (like Thirty Flights of Loving), they'll just have to make a name for themselves outside of Steam first. I'm thinking of stuff like The Stanley Parable which has existed for a while as a free mod, and has a pretty strong following. Personally, I'm not afraid of Greenlight limiting the selection of games, but rather reinforcing the status quo. Popular games that would get on Steam anyway will all be voted up, and niche or obscure games won't. But no matter what happens, it's not like Steam's the only place I can go to play games anyway, so I can deal with it.
  13. The Walking Dead

  14. The Walking Dead

    Did anyone else die more often in this episode than in previous ones? I never died in episode one, only once in episode two because I was dumb and didn't pay attention, but died several times in three. I'm assuming that was a deliberate design choice on Telltale's part, since the shooting and punching parts seemed a bit harder. I guess this episode was supposed to be a bridge between the first and second halves of the season, since it just seemed to be setting stuff up for the next two episodes and tied up loose ends from the previous. The plot arc wasn't as strong as the previous ones either, and once I decided to check my achievements just so I could gage how far into the story I was.
  15. I just got a Dota 2 key, and I've never played a game of lord's management in my life. I joined the steam group in hopes of playing with some fellow Thumbs who won't be too mean to me
