Steam crushes X-bros …faggot

http://www.theverge.com/2013/10/30/5045830/steam-65-million-active-accounts-6-million-concurrent-users

  • “PC gaming’s dead, Jim!”

  • Our glorious PC gaming master race is expanding!

  • Wait a tick! The mainstream press says PC gaming is teh dead!

 

Steam control

http://steamdb.info/app/241100/#section_info

  • The more I see of the Areola Controlla the more I want to twiddle with it. Doug, why you no reply to my e-mail?

  • Just make mah Distance Alpha work!

 

100 New games Greenlit, 39 claim Linux support

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=188949082

  • This time I went through the list, one by one.

    • Shitty ports of shitty android games

    • More Rogue clones than I care to admit

    • At least 10 Unity games that the devs didn’t feel like clicking export.

    • Looking forward to After Reset, Estranged, Festival of Magic, Pulse and You Are Not The Hero.

Steam is now in RPMFusion

http://negativo17.org/steam-is-now-in-rpmfusion/

  • Does the spot repo still work?

    • It was discontinued when Steam went out of beta

  • Fixes a stupid bug I was having about it asking me to install Ubuntu packages on Korora. Thumbs up from me!

  • A nice nice to have

 

L4D2 is a real boy

http://store.steampowered.com/app/550/

  • No more stupid FPS hitching, everything on 11 using the Open Sauce drivers and it works swimmingly! About goddamn time!

  • No linux system requirements as of 10/29

  • Runs the same NTTAWWT

 

FORCED v1.03

http://steamcommunity.com/games/249990/announcements/detail/1677882912774399262

  • Fixed some issues preventing players from proceeding past the starting screen.

  • Fixed some issues with the mark system not working on Linux.

  • 1.4 GB update

  • Ohey, Linux updates!

 

The Anniversary 1.3.3

http://gunsoficarus.com/community/blog/update-1-3-3-release-notes/

  • I say it again, if they had a publisher like EA or ActiBlizzion this would be called DLC and cost $20. Still doin’ it right!

  • Good to see that they’ve been putting work in improving their game

  • A number of graphical and AI fixes, enhancements and new features.

 

Shadowrun Returns has moved from Beta to release

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1613260297/shadowrun-returns/posts/646403

  • WHAR keys?

  • As of  this recording, you still need to opt in to the beta to play it on linux

  • A little disappointed, it’s not what I had hoped for. Basically it’s ARMA Tactics with a Fantasy/Sci-fi do over. Which is great on its own merit, just not what I had hoped.

  • Its like a little retarded up version of actual shadowrun

 

Eat a bag

  • I may not like the game, but I like the devs a whole lot more after this.

  • Indeed.   Kudos for sticking to your guns.

Makes with the working

P-

  • On both the calculator and my 8 year old Valve recommended steam box. (Yes I’m running Xubuntu 13.10 on it)


Total-


Shiny / Sounds

V-

  • Honestly, it looks a bit simple but hella nice for a rougelike

J-

  • They’re good for what they are.

  • Too busy listening to slayer to judge the soundtrack

P-

  • Graphics… Those don’t really matter much on a top down roguelike. If they did Bionic Dues would have to get 5 chairs.

  • I lowered the volume of my mp3s and sat listening to the menu BGM for a good 10 minutes. Very nice job.

  • The NPC quips may get old after awhile, but I’m 21 hours in and they still haven’t.


Total-


Control

V-

  • Everything was tight but figuring out the targeting was a bit obtuse.

J-

P-

  • It’s a roguelike, the control scheme is intuitive to anyone familiar with the genre and stupid easy to learn by the new players.

  • Was originally going to give it three chairs but they’ve since removed the camera control issue I was having. They literally nuked it out of the game. Thumbs up!


Total-


FUN

V-

  • Hey, I enjoyed it and rougelikes are not my dice.

J-

  • Fun little roguelike.   Reminds me of Doom the roguelike a bit.

  • It grew on me

  • Why…Why was I programmed to feel pain?

P-

  • Fun? FUN!?

  • Freakin’ time vampire is what it is, respekt!


Total-


Verdict –

  • Is it worth $10? Yes it is! There are plenty of games out there being sold for $60 that don’t deliver anywhere near as much fun as this little game.
