I'll buy Cold Steel at launch but I'll wait for CS2 release before playing.

Well Doom has been crazy cheap for so long, it would really be the perfect early unlock because Humble can say "$50 value" but its regularly $10-$15. I welcome it as I have been wanting to buy it and it is a good excuse.

The Karate one was pretty fun. I haven't played the others. Doubt I'll go for this, though. Still, goes to show that the well for remakes is almost bottomless.

Is there any way to force Steam Overlay to work in some old games? Not DOSBox games, some titles from early 00s, for example Runaway 1-2, Lost Planet DX10, Tomb Raider Legend, random casual puzzle games... Is it possible to fix this issue manually? Why exactly steam overlay could refuse to work in some games?

For your sake, I hope it's in there.

For mine, I hope it's not.

That game is one of the best experiences I've had in recent memory. Pedal to the metal from start to finish. Immediately brought me back to forever ago, trading Doom 2 back and forth with my older brother.

but these arent really remakes... they just copied some old games to resell them under a new name without the need to license them...

kinda shady, they even used the old Epyx name to make them look more legit

There isn't any problem with it. You could also do this natively within the Steam client without downloading any external programs too. You just won't get the convenience of the software auto-switching when you already get cards from that particular game.

Anyways. We got hit by this stupid terabyte data cap last year. Atlanta also got hit by this. No idea if this applies to other Cox subscribers. It really freaking sucks because I would use a ton of data.

That's pretty much how I feel. I enjoy reading about these games and how everybody is having fun with them, but usually I have no interest in playing them.

Eventually, I get curious and try a multiplayer game, but in a very antisocial way. I played WoW for a few days to see what it was all about, but I played solo and just ignored everybody ^_^

I also played DOTA and HOTS for a few hours just out of curiosity (against the AI, of course). I'm interested in how these games work because they're huge, but they're definitely not for me.

Considering Divinity: OS2 comes out in September and the first game's high profile, maybe it makes sense to make it a highlight of the next monthly. Was it ever in a regular bundle?

This is me. I have zero interest in online games, but it's nice to see games like PUBG do so well.

It's also saved me a lot of money.

Heh. That reminds me of the Forza titles on 360. The later mainline & Horizon titles introduced Online Leaderboard tracking, and I used to have a blast trying to shave milliseconds off of Lap Times from people on my Friends List.

I don't have social anxiety about Online Gaming, I think I'm just too hung up on playing on My Schedule, the way I Want To Play (i.e. I'll stop and sniff the roses whenever I want). Doesn't gel very well with community gameplay sessions. Guess I'm just an anti-social narcissist. :p

Yup. I still track the highs and lows in genres I don't play.

It's really awesome to see PUBG's grass-roots success.

They did try with Black OPs 3 with server browser and modding tools. The issue is that they took fucking ages to get those out. It's something it should have been there from launch, not after the interest on it is all gone.
