Ceiling Steam watches you masturbate? Humble goes to eleven, FTL goes full-metal time vampire, and something about Strife. Then we throw the chairs at Guacamelee. All this, plus your hate mail.

Steam’s VAC protection now scans and transfers your DNS cache

http://www.ghacks.net/2014/02/16/steams-vac-protection-now-scans-ans-transfers-dns-cache/

  • Now /w damage control goodness

  • http://www.reddit.com/r/gaming/comments/1y70ej/valve_vac_and_trust/

  • At the end of the day Valve is doing sneaky shite because there is a kernel level market for hacks.

  • It’s Valve, they’re a big corporation. Of course they do sneaky things.

  • As long as they keep providing a decent service I’ll keep using their things, just like Google.

Paranautical Activity devs say it is Steam’s fault

  • ^ slipped that in

  • Having fun /w Guacamelee! Gold Edition

  • Holy crap!   Only one game I already own!

    • ^ same

 

Strife Closed beta

http://strife.com/

  • 64-bit only

  • I have to note that their website design is much better than your typical linux game fodder

  • Waiting on Feb 28 to try this sucker out

  • Never did get an invite, but if it’s 64bit only then I suppose I don’t mind.

 

FTL updates

  • Le Drool

  • Seriously though, why an ipad port?   Android first man!   ANDROID!

 

Paragon Evolved

http://rootgamer.com/10024/demo-2/download-paragon-evolved-demo

  • Unity Quake 3 in a Tron suit

  • Demo starts, menu interaction is fine.

  • No ability to change key bindings

  • The demo freezes for me whenever the window is in focus, in game.

    • If I change focus to another window it seems to run perfectly fine. It’s when I try to interact with it that it throws a hissy fit.

 

Arena of Heroes

    • ….And Its basically turn based LOL.   I don’t really know what I expected

  • Bitchin’ soundtrack is bitchin’

  • I liked the art style but fell in love when it was brought to my attention that it could cause fk mothering seizures \:D/

  • Knocking it a chair the decided lack of children

J-

  • The soundtrack is pretty awesome

P-

  • Shank in a full metroidvania outfit.

  • None of the gritty stuff

  • It’s all colorful and cheery

  • Background music compliments the visuals perfectly

  • Where Shank and Mark of the Ninja fell short, Guacamelee succeeded.

  • Tight and responsive controls paired with an out-of-the-box working PS2 Dual Shock can only mean one thing…

FUN

V-

  • Pacing is spot on. Really, piss me off just enough and I keep coming back.

  • Most modern games are just too easy

J-

  • Little disappointed the chickens don’t try to kill you after turning red.    Pollo Loco indeed

  • Gotta love Luchadores

P-

  • On the first go, it sucked me in for over an hour without me even realising it.

  • It’s like Shank and Dust: An Elysian Tale got drunk in some random mexican bar and this was their dumpster baby.

  • At least it doesn’t take itself seriously. Unlike the aforementioned two.

  • Random pop culture references are actually pretty mild and, considering the general tone of the game, well placed.

  • It does prey on the mexican stereotype to get some cheap laughs, but it does so successfully.

  • Have to duck it a chair because, like most metroidvania games, it resorts to having you backtrack like some obsessive compulsive lunatic in order to squeeze some extra game time.
