  1. Summer Steam Sale

    That's a lot of shit I ain't ever gonna touch.
  2. Neptune's Bountiful Pride 3

    Yeah. It's weird because going out you can, really, only claim about three stars before the distance becomes too great to continue (until you upgrade range, which is the most expensive tech), while inside it just gets closer and closer, so the map is basically funneling players inward.
  3. Neptune's Bountiful Pride 3

    Way to out yourself And spiral galaxy is weird, but I think a lot of the weirdness comes from the slow one planet start. Once people start expanding towards the centre and start developing range to be able to cross, I think things are going to get really interesting.
  4. Neptune's Bountiful Pride 3

    I guess it's worth linking to http://np.ironhelmet.com/gamestats?game=7895088 Not all that interesting to outside spectators, but it does give a general idea for how the flow of the game will go.
  5. Neptune's Bountiful Pride 3

    Do we have any forensic linguists in the house? I'm sure all communications now will be studied and analyzed greatly as we all try to identify each other. :shifty:
  6. Neptune's Bountiful Pride 3

    Should be interesting. This is just my second game, and my first on a spiral galaxy... and I can already imagine the kind of problems a spiral galaxy would cause.
  7. Pub, London, this Friday.

    Too far
  8. Harmonix is continually building on their passion for music and music playing, via games. Neversoft is continually building on their passion for games, with music and music playing. I think that was pretty evident from the start, when Guitar Hero 3 added "boss fights" and weird battle modes and licensed personalities while Harmonix went and made it more fun to just play music, and do so with friends.
  9. iPhone Carcassonne

    I'm playing as n0wak so I'm game, but I think the game requires email address (?) so, uh, send a PM if you don't have it already.
  10. Recently completed video games

    Hey, I actually completed games. PLURAL. Zeno Clash Red Dead Redemption PixelJunk Shooter The latter was completed just in time for a PixelJunk Shooter 2 announcement at E3, which gets me excited. Liked the game a great deal. There was an Ace Team game announcement too, so doubly so.
  11. Child of Eden

    I don't know. Miyamoto had a personal demonstration of Child of Eden at E3. I think more than anything it has a lot to do with the fact that Q? is a fairly small outfit and a lot of this kind of stuff depends on sales / publishers giving them money to do things. They expressed an interest to port Rez to the Playstation 3 as well, and asked if people would be interested on Twitter, but it's hard to know how much that'd cost and sell.
  12. Rayman Origins

    The characters are totally drawn and animated within Flash. That's not a bad thing, but it's very noticeable stylistically.
  13. Beyond Better & Evil!

  14. Red Thumb Redemption

    Custom games are worse. But they greatly improved the free roam, to the point where you actually have things to do there other than pointlessly kill each other. And it's a fun world to mess around with. That said, a co-op update is coming soon and that might add an extra level of fun, though I assume the number of supported players with that will be limited.
  15. Red Dead Redemption

Fuck you.
  16. Super Thumb Fighter 4

    Anyone that wants to play my super annoying Vega (76% win rate on Ranked Games!!) or my slightly less annoying Juri or Blanka (I'm working on making my Gouken more annoying too) can find me on the 360 as n0wak. I'm pretty much game anytime I'm on, so send me a message.
  17. If there's room and you figure this out, I'd be willing to join in. I have a non Steam version of Civ IV that I'd need to dust off, but if all else goes bad I can rebuy it anyway (just so I have it for Mac too, and the expansion packs.) Hmm, could I connect to the game from the Mac version?
  18. Stupid connection problems kept me sidelined for most of this and kept dumping me into fucking single player, so I went off and tried some multiplayer Grand Theft Horse and... some of the same UI annoyances from GTA are present there. WTF ROCKSTAR.
  19. Steve even more famous then Famous?

    And to think, he linked to me once!
  20. Somehow I expected a better XX to XY chromosome ratio from Tell Tale. Not sure why. Maybe it's better beyond the TF2 team?
  21. Obligatory comical YouTube thread

  22. Nifty browser games (inc. Flash)

    Yeah, was playing with this earlier. If you go west from the hedge maze, you'll find my scene of peaceful contemplation.
  23. XCOM returns

    I don't know. It gets the Farbs Seal of Approval so that makes it fairly promising in my books http://twitter.com/FarbsMcFarbs/status/12158420566
