Question for those who have played Amnesia: The Dark Descent.

Is it largely quite linear, or big and sprawling? I really want to play it, but I don't like games where it's easy to get lost. I don't mind getting stuck for ages on puzzles, but I don't want to be fumbling around. I want to be pushed reasonably adeptly through the story.

It has adaptive difficulty, doesn't it?

It's a linear game, but it has some areas where you have a little "hub" area that leads to about 4-5 other areas that you have to visit to proceed.

I am really loving 1000 amps, it's kinda like Fluidity!

Even though it needs to be patched (has crashed 3x now for me), it's still made a very positive impression on me. Definitely recommend it if you like low-key exploration games (knytt stories, fluidity, etc.).

Renegade Ops has a pretty badass sale (5 CD keys for about $8.76/6.81€) on Nuuvem.com.br, a Brazilian website I've already used once before without a problem.
The game is a Steamworks title, no problems there, and at least one copy (what I understand of Portuguese is what Google Translate tells me, so...) will have two DLCs included - Coldstrike Campaign and Reinforcement Pack.
Paypal only for international purchases, as far as I know.

anyone experienced this error before?



Ive been getting this for days now. But whats weird is that I only can't access the Store and Community even on my browser. I can play and download games normally and even getting patches. Checked for some troubleshooting on the Steam forums but nothing still works, any tips here?

I'm getting it all the time when going to the store from Steam itself. Works fine from Chrome though.

Not really Steam, but anyone want a closed beta key for Risen 2?

First person to quote this can have it.

EDIT: Maybe it was Steam related. No time for the beta either way. Sent to Remfin.

Shouts to IGN Prime. I am now downloading the Risen 2 beta on Steam.

I feel stupid for asking this... how did you get past the "City, ZIP/Postal Code: " section (aka how did you put yours in to get into the beta). I have tried every combo that I can think of my city and zip code and it keeps telling me to put in a valid one.

Everybody is still getting the ign prime emails even if you cancelled your ign prime right? I wanna make sure I'm not the only one and somehow didn't cancel it from the last monthly thing.

Yup, resuscribe box unchecked, emails still comin'.

Yeah in addition to cancelling auto renew, and I used an empty pre-paid CC to sign up for my trial. There's no way that they could be charging me. Yet I still receive the emails and i can even log into my prime account.

you probably weren't reading the form correctly. there's a box for your city, then a box for the zip code on the far right. anyways, i redeemed it and i'm PMing you the steam cd-key.

Hello!

I might be fumbling in the dark on this one, but I bought the alpha collection (http://www.indieroyale.com/) and I am desperately trying to acess my games. I understood "Desura" is the only way to get the games. I've downloaded Desura and now there is nowhere to redeem the codes?

Thanks in advance.

once desura starts up, click the blue icon (next to your avatar picture) in the start up window and go down to tools and select activate cd key
