Indeed, the stuff I heard about the first beta was frustrating at best. Hopefully things will have improved. Don't want to get all hyped up for nothing.

Anyway, I'm ready. I do hope that the Chun Li TE2 fight stick doesn't come out this month, as I need to eat!

Popped on Wolf3D earlier, 22 years on still plays like a dream. Depends on the game, your past experience with it and maybe tolerance to something a little older. I like to judge a game on its own merits than compare it to something more modern. Most older games that have say horrible controls still had them when it was released but you might have looked past that for other factors at the time.
Yep, it's never accurate to generalize. While many older games are borderline unenjoyable, there are plenty which aged gracefully.

Usually what I found out is that early 3D games age bad, not only visually but also in gameplay. 2D, strategy, sport games on the other hand have much higher chances of being still good.

Ozium: You know what I want.
JaseC: No, I don't.
Ozium: You played it for her, you can play it for me!
JaseC: Well, I don't think I can...
Ozium: If she can stand Assassin's Creed, I can! Play it!

Will using a trainer break Mad Max achievements? I'm trying everything to inject fun into the game.

Karma's important my friend.

In other SF news, I posted about this earlier today, but now I found some more pictures of the Ultra SF4 Halloween costume dlc that's coming out this month. There's a more complete gallery here.

Karma's important my friend.
After the last 2 reveals and the leak, my hype for the game died. Especially after learning that Karin doesn't have a Tekken style counter -- something I was saying I'd like to see on a character in the SFV roster (and being told that Karin had that in Alpha so she may be worth checking out).

Sure, it still has one of my main's, but waiting on the last new fighter and last classic character, I'm sure they'll be disappointing as well to me... I was already considering a refund and looking into cheaper options when the game released (gmg/nuuvem/whatever) but all of my dwindling hype told me to just refund it now.

Knowing some of my preferences when it comes to gaming, I was mainly looking at it on PC because that's where my current fight stick would work, though I'd probably prefer to have it on PS4 for trophy earning potential since online is the same either way. :\

Anyway, hope this beta is better than the last for you folks who are in.

Soooooo, despite having sworn Spelunky off just yesterday I believe, I find myself launching the game constantly :/
And then, bam! Second Ironman Run! Bam! New Personal Record! Bam! Jumped above friends in Leaderboard!
I really wanted to stop spelunking and go to other games but man, this is some digital crack-cocaine right here. Hooked right into my veins, I tell ya!

speaking of street fighter I really hope this fight pad:
ends up being good and works nicely with PC, not a fan of fighting sticks so its would be a great alternative



Wow i just saw that gameplay for Resident Evil Umbrella Corps, it looks so damn bad :\

Hate it automatically cause Ryu is in your image.

It looks like a Mad Catz PS4 controller that has a second trigger for r1/r2 on the face so that you get the 6 buttons for capcom fighters? that's actually not bad... I'd probably grab one of those since it'd work on PS4/PC most likely and allow me to play the game if I got it on PS4 without having to buy a new fight stick.

If it shows up as dinput or xinput when connected to PC as a USB controller, it should be compatible. Mad Catz stuff has worked on PC before (my TE fightstick is a 360 stick that's been dual modded for PS3...)

I only just realised I could get a Steam key for rFactor using the order number from my online purchase of it from way back in 2007. Nice! Will install and mod the hell out of it for science and nostalgia.

Must've put well over a thousand hours into rFactor over the years. Online league racing with my Belgian sim racing buddies was the time of my life.

Gentlemen, we can rebuild it. We have the capability to make the world's first enhanced store. Steam will be that store. Better than it was before.

Steam client update:
I'd happily give Valve my cell phone number
(and have coincidentally sent it directly to Gabe Newell via email)
but their system won't recognize that my number is legitimate.

Does this new change mean it's now more annoying and spammy than it was before?

Shantae point and click adventure game when?
I assume when Shantae gets a movie, possibly starring Jack Black.

(Speaking of which, don't be surprised if the Goosebumps game gets pulled eventually, seeing as it's licensed...so you +1 people know what to do.)

Shantae played by Emma Stone or Jennifer Lawrence. Jack Black could be Shantae's Uncle Mimic and wait for people going wild about the white washing.

Seriously guys, if you pick up Contradiction in the bundle, play it. Decent game. It takes a while to get used to the keyboard only control interface though.

Steam client update:

Do they ever actually send the text verification?
I just got it. Took about a minute to arrive after inputting my number.

Great bundle and such... too bad I own everything I want out of the bundle. :(

Next question is, do I want to sacrifice my morals and virtues for Fallout 3 Season Pass on GMG?
