Steam News :

Source 2 to have level streaming (aka no more load screens)

http://facepunch.com/showthread.php?t=1415694&p=45659262&viewfull=1#post45659262

  • I remember Neverwinter Nights also had streaming levels, but the loading screens were still very much there!

 

Alienware’s ‘Alpha’.. yeah, I quit reading there as well

http://www.engadget.com/2014/08/12/alienware-alpha-software/

  • “Alienware says you’ll be able to upgrade to Steam OS and the Steam Controller whenever Valve’s got those ready.”

    • *grabs popcorn*

  • “For now, though, the Alpha feels undercooked — a rushed product which serves Alienware’s bottom line and little else.”

    • Well… DUH!

    • Valve time sucks, but when they release things they tend to be good!

    • Haste makes waste and all that business.

  • I really stopped giving a shit about this when they announced that they’d be using a custom GPU soldered on to the mobo itself

  • Though it sounds like they got the name right.

 

Depression Quest doesn’t let you depress buttons on linux

http://store.steampowered.com/app/270170

  • Lists full controller support, but if you scroll down to the requirements

  • Didn’t know Robin Williams used Linux

    • Well, you don’t know Jack

    • Does this game have you Hook’d yet?

    • Don’t leave me hangin’

    • Sorry, still a bit shook up

  • A text adventure without animu cleavage? What has this world come to?

 

Shots fired!

  • burn.jpg

  • A sorcery FPS with randomly generated levels.

    • Good on them for getting rumble working on the 360 gamepad, but who in the hell would play an FPS using a controller on PC?

  • Interesting levelling concept.   Supposedly it changes how you play the game in order to ensure that you need to be skillful to succeed.

    • Will it live up to that?   We’ll see when they actually release the damn thing

 

A week too late

http://www.reddit.com/r/linux_gaming/comments/2daw61/leadwerks_game_engine_now_shows_up_in_linux_steam/

  • They listened

  • We should be taking full credit for this!

  • Dammit Ledwerks!   Where’s our cut of the kickstarter!?

  • Me: After the steam release would you (or someone in the company) be up for an interview via Skype?

    • okay.jpg

  • Controls only work for in-game movement FK menu navigation

  • Updates include

    • Achievements bug fixed.

    • Graphics optimization.

    • AI mechanics improvement.

http://store.steampowered.com/app/303870/

  • Demo http://www.indiedb.com/games/blinding-dark/downloads

  • Demo nopes

  • As far as shit unity games go, this one doesn’t look half-bad from what I saw on the trailer

  • Demo is busted in a way only Unity games can get busted.

  • Mouse is so twitchy.   At least it doesn’t crash.
