I assume the point of the tattoo is to make it look like you're infected with HL/Valve? Because it looks like it's infected.

The green comes from the beginning part of HL1 when you push in the test specimen and everything goes crazy. Basically, what starts off the whole mess at Black Mesa.

The latest Steam beta update screwed up the spacing in my Grid view on Metro. Anyone know the files/lines I need to change to get them back closer together again?

Thanks in advance...

Here ya go

steam/resources/layout/gamespage_grid

Change interior spacing to 00
GridView.DropShadowLeading "XX" Replace XX with a value between 00 and 03 depending on your skin.

Then steam/Skins/*Name of Skin*/layout/gamespage_grid

mirror your settings from the Steam file.

NOTE: Some people have reported that you don't need to do the latter. It seems to vary by skin, but I've found the best results just doing both regardless.

One of my mates got a tattoo of the Gears of War skull logo. It's actually very well done and you wouldn't assume anything of it if you weren't already aware where it's from.

Man I cant wait for this movie... shame its only 88 mintues long.. :(


JIM :*(

The film was certainly better than I thought it would be considering the largely crummy reviews that trickled out of TIFF back in 2011. The IMDb description suggests it's an action film, but that's not really the case -- I'd say it starts off as more of a black comedy before switching gears at about the halfway point to evolve into an introspective drama, with interstitial bloody violence.

It screams science.

You monster. (Portal is Aperture Science, but whatever. :p)

There shouldn't be any issues with using another person's save aside from their achievements unlocking on your end.

Lol @ people crying about Deathstroke's bossfight. That shit was truly baller. I nearly orgasmed during every transition.

What are people saying about it? I've been cynical about the game but saw it on the GB quick look and thought it looked kinda cool. That and seeing some of the new forensic stuff has actually made me more interested in the game.

Finally finished Tomb Raider!

Really liked the beginning, but was getting tired of the formula somewhere around the middle. They have a great base for the inevitable sequel.

I also finished Tomb Raider just now, I definitely saw where some of the hate came from regarding QTE's, but I really enjoyed the entire game a lot and I think the sequel will be even better (bigger tombs, more open, etc). The visuals were beautiful and I found the atmosphere and music top-notch. I can't wait to read Gail Simone's TR comics miniseries in 2014, maybe Crystal Dynamics should get her to write the next story of the sequel, I think she'd do good things with Lara.

Roth had a great voice actor too, I just liked his accent so much for some reason haha.

The entire combat system for 3 games now has been a QTE....

Yes, but you have more freedom in the regular battles. You can jump over enemies, stun them with your cape, and use all your gadgets.

None of that stuff worked against Deathstroke. You spend most of the fight countering him.

Mr Freeze in Arkham City is an example of a boss fight done right. One that puts all of your skills to the test.

That Freeze boss fight was killer, probably the best part of that game IMO (I didn't much like most of it). However, I feel like the Deathstroke one works just as well as more of a spectacle fight, and it fits the character. The only way they could have made it better was if
Batman didn't drop the sword

Yeah, I guess you're right. I still enjoyed the fight, but it was just missing something for me.

Also, I don't know much about Deathstroke, so that could be another reason. I suppose fans of the character would enjoy it a lot more than I did.

How did you actually end up fighting him? Being effective in the entire first stage is predicated on jumping over him and attacking, just countering barely registers any damage.
After he starts attaching the hook for the explosive to come after you, the entire battle is basically using your hook to catch him off guard for you to then beat down.
Counters are only really a factor if you're b-lining straight for him or get caught in weird positioning.

Hmm, guess I did it the boring way.

Countered a lot and landed a few punches in the first part. When his mask came off, I basically did the same thing again, except for when he did the smoke attack (which triggers a beatdown) or hooked up explosives (where you use your grapple to bring him towards you - I think this only happened twice in the whole fight).

When I play the game again on Hard, I'll try to mix things up.

I used pixelvision some time ago, but ended up going back to the default steam. Couldn't handle the client and website looking different. :p I wonder how much work it would be to convert a theme to userscript or something.
