    What's the difference between playing..Age of Empires III for example on Steam? As opposed to going to Gamestop and buying a copy and playing it on like the Microsoft servers or whatever servers?

    Having 50%-75% more money in your pocket when steam sales come around

    Seriously? I know Steam has a lot of sales. But I meant gameplay wise and anything else.

    Steam is like Netflix for computer games, if that makes any sense. overall, you'll get a similar experience watching a movie over Netflix streaming vs buying the movie from a store; but Netflix can be a better deal, both money-wise and convenience-wise.
    Forget trying to pass for normal. Follow your geekdom. Embrace nerditude. In the immortal words of Lafcadio Hearn, a geek of incredible obscurity whose work is still in print after a hundred years, “Woo the muse of the odd.” You may be a geek. You may have geek written all over you. You should aim to be one geek they’ll never forget. Don’t aim to be civilized. Don’t hope that straight people will keep you on as some sort of pet. To hell with them. You should fully realize what society has made of you and take a terrible revenge. Get weird. Get way weird. Get dangerously weird. Get sophisticatedly, thoroughly weird, and don’t do it halfway. Put every ounce of horsepower you have behind it. Don’t become a well-rounded person. Well-rounded people are smooth and dull. Become a thoroughly spiky person. Grow spikes from every angle. Stick in their throats like a pufferfish. -Bruce Sterling

    Games don't disappear from your library like they could from Netflix though. Unless you get banned i guess?

    That said after i get my paycheck I'm gettin xcom and dust. Super ready for that. I'm still playing mark of the ninja game is really good, I'm working on a quick all silent run.

    yeah, it's not a perfect analogy :rofl: it was just the closest thing i could think of at the time.

    i've been playing RAGE on and off for the past week and i enjoy it. i think this weekend i'm going to download all the games i have bought through Humble Indie Bundle and check them out since i have 7+TBs of free space now.

    it would at least be a nice change of pace instead of only having cave making good shooters.

    Cave isn't the only one making shooters. Especially on Pc where there are quite a few.

    Qute Corporation, Plantine Dispositif, G-Rev, Astro Port, Zun, Tennen-sozai, all say hi.

    Anyway Platinum's style is really great and all their own, I don't think they need to change it for now. But having Pc versions and Vanquish, Bayonetta, and Max Anarchy would be sweet.

    RAGE had awesome gameplay. I snagged the DLC but have yet to play it.

    If I wasn't broke I'd buy Sonic and Sega All Stars Racing Transformed for $7 off Steam. I loved the first game, and I hear the sequel is even better.

    I been playing Dark Souls, and Awesomenauts lately. I would love to also play AirMech or Unreal Tournament 2004 with anybody (I suck at both). I also use Steam as a handy IM chat that can be used while playing games.

    You'll soon discover that the main problem with PC gaming is not the lack of money, but the lack of time to play all the shit you buy for 5 bucks.

    That and HDD space. Goddamn is HDD space important, same with console games that need installs on PS3. I have to delete installs/PSN games all the time to make room for new games.

    Yup.

    I can't wait for Lords of Shadows on PC either. LoS ran like ass on consoles, so it should be really interesting to play the game at a stable framerate. What's your Steam account, DM? Do you still post on the CV Dungeon forums? Are they whining about LoS/Mirros of Fate over there as much as @Rugalitarian does here?

    My ideal world would have IGA still doing 2D Metroidvania/classic-style CV games, with MercuryS developing the 3D games.

    I was really excited when they announced the LoS2 would be on PC. And I'm sure the differences between LoS on PS3 and PC will be pretty apparent and I've been loving that game (almost got a complete 110% game save!) so I'm looking forward to having it on my PC. My Steam account should the TheDoctaMario Look me up dude!

    Yeah I still post at the Dungeon and yeah there are still some folks complaining about LoS, but there are folks like me who really dig the game to balance it out a bit. I understand some of the criticism (God Of War stuff) but I still think it's a great game. LoS2 looks like it's going to be even better!

    I'll have to check out that stream! Doom II was the first Doom game I ever really played BACK IN THE DAY! :D

    I don't know why but I thought you were part of the group of us that played L4D2 back at launch... I loved that game.

    I was part of the OG crew that ran through L4D1 on the hardest difficulties with mic assist for hilariously good times.

    I ran with @Amordien @m00b and @GeesePants

    There were some others but I can't remember.

    Why does Source have to have such shitty, shitty hitboxes and hit detection? :(

    Did they fix that shit in CS: GO? Or is it still Marvel 3 Vergil normal-esque hitboxes where headshots are more common than anything else, to a point where you can get headshots without even trying to aim?
