  1. Team Fortress 2 Co-op! Mann vs. Machine

    Idle TF2 Server?
  2. Rockstar's L.A. Noire

    After much delay, I finally started playing L.A. Noire on my PC last night. With how much fuss was made regarding the motion capture, the overall environments and even the bodies of all the characters are very uninteresting. Basically like they've got a great head pinned onto an OK body. Plus, it seems as if the detail just isn't there through a lot of the characters. Very strange feeling in that regard. I'm glad they give you the ability to have your partner drive to crime scenes because quite honestly, the driving is kind of dumb. It seems like the only reason it exists at all is because of the random side missions that are also not great. The real meat is most certainly the main investigations and I'm throughly enjoying walking around to check out crime scenes. The other stuff hasn't put me off enough so I'll keep playing to see where Cole's adventure takes him.
  3. I played two matches last night with people I knew against bots. They are all League of Legends players and mocked the game basically the whole time. The first match, we were accidentally playing against hard bots and I picked a generic dude on a horse (forget his name, but he seemed angry). That didn't go well at all. The second I picked "Gyrocopter" because he looked funny and did reasonably well (we won that match). No, before you ask, I didn't plan ahead as to who I should pick... I just winged it. They want to teach me LoL instead of Dota 2 because "Dota 2 is stupid."
  4. Tonight, I'll be trying this for the first real time ever. I'm so scared.
  5. Castle Story

    Another day, another Kickstarter. This one appears to be for extra funding instead of full development of a game though. Castle Story is supposed to be like Dwarf Fortress which I've never played but has always sounded intriguing. This thing hasn't been up very long, and they're almost at their goal. What'cha think?
  6. This games really needs some quick start guide. I fired it up and the interface is fairly daunting by itself. I went to the training tab, and it's basically a bunch of videos? Can I "train" by playing?
  7. Castle Story

    Have any funded Kickstarter game projects been successfully released yet?
  8. Those Opening Ceremony things are on right now for people who didn't stream them... and I've already gotten completely grossed out by Lauer and Vieira commenting on everything as well as the commercial breaks. Every time I feel awe (honest!), something pipes up and says, "HERE'S SOMETHING THAT'S SYMBOLIC BUT IT SYMBOLIZES THIS YOURE TOO DUMB TO FIGURE IT OUT." The ceremony itself is incredible, the other stuff is just awful trash.
  9. Thirty Flights of Loving

    Regretting only backing $10...
  10. Here's mine. It's marked as private, but I'll certainly add whoever requests friendship FRIENDSHIP.
  11. Just joined it. I've been pretty hostile towards the genre ever since DotA All Stars and it's toxic community and thought LoL was a bit tough to get into. I still don't have beta access to Dota 2 though, so whenever that happens, hopefully you guys can cuddle me under your kind wings. Edit: Scratch that... just checked my list and it's there but I was never notified of it. Installing now.
  12. DotA 2 Key

    So far, I've never been able to get into any Lords Management style game. I've applied for the beta of Dota 2 though, and am fairly interested in seeing how Sins of a Dark Age turns out. I may need some hand holding... A lot of hand holding. I'm not as good as I was when I was younger.
  13. Castle Story

    And it's already fully funded.
  14. Centurion: Defender of Rome

    A long time ago, I had the game Centurion: Defender of Rome. It was both a military and political game where the entire goal was to become Caesar. My most memorable aspect was that eventually you could take elephants into battle. They had "huts" mounted on their backs with archers in them and were extremely powerful. What I don't know is if there's any sort of game that's comparable to it today. Rome: Total War is mentioned as a 'see also' in the Wikipedia section, though I've never touched any of the Total War titles. Do those games allow you to have both strategy and political aspects, or are they primarily RTS titles with large amounts of units? Also, has anyone even played Centurion?
  15. Steam Summer Sale 2012

    I didn't buy a ton this year, just the following: Gratuitous Tank Battles Amnesia The Dark Descent SPAZ Indie Game the Movie
  16. Ouya: Ooooh Yeah!

    Has this been confirmed anywhere other than that tweet? Because the way I'm looking at it... you can read it and think the same thing all the other developers have already stated "Hey, that could be cool!"
  17. Ouya: Ooooh Yeah!

    It happened two days ago, but I didn't see it because I'm not a backer of OUYA. Julie Uhrman updated the Kickstarter with the following: Then, in the conclusion: "Some games" have not jumped on board. In fact, there are still zero confirmed. Average Joe is reading this whole Kickstarter as they've got Minecraft, and now they've got Hawken. Their "progress" with the product was basically them having a conversation with nVidia. This feels very wrong.
  18. Ouya: Ooooh Yeah!

    Thanks. It'd be better to just wait and see than to commit the money now. I'd be much happier with a Steam Box whenever they get their 10-foot interface going. Once someone can figure out a low profile device like that with plenty of storage, they'll be the one to back.
  19. Xbox Live: Threat or Menace?

    Yeah, I rarely play games online anymore and just use it for the stuff I could use it for on my PS3. I've just gotten used to using the 360 for media stuff... Which i realize is really stupid.
  20. Ouya: Ooooh Yeah!

    If you watch the video it appears to be the firm that's doing the industrial design, Fuse Project. Basically, It's not even OUYA's staff. I went to Fuse Project's website and there are a couple pictures of areas that appear in the video.
  21. Rockstar's L.A. Noire

    Actually it was a custom engine, not the same as GTA, so the inclusion of all that stuff in general seems even weirder. I did not search.
  22. The Walking Dead

    In Episode 2, if you're a horror fan, it was pretty easy to tell where the story was going, but some of the surrounding stuff totally caught me off guard. For example:
  23. Yager's Spec Ops: The Line

    Yeah, I read that yesterday. Pretty fantastic writing and a great summation of shooters and Spec Ops.
  24. Defense grid 2 (kickstarter!)

    Really enjoyed Defense Grid but you're right, not sure why they'd need a Kickstarter. They're the same folks doing CS:GO... Maybe all the current funding is going that way?
