When OnLive first launched I scoffed and stated that it will never work. Through the numerous trade shows and press releases that followed I never once thought they had a chance and it was absolutely no surprise that they virtually collapsed in late 2012.
Remember how we made you all play Loadout for our community play last time? We are apparently really trendy - everyone else is playing it, too. Wait, seeing as we're early, does that make us hipsters? Or are we just mainstream and doing what everyone else does?
As if there weren't enough Steam sales as it is, now we can expect even more discounts and great deals. I honestly don't know if my backlog can take it. Oh who am I kidding, of course it can!
You remember that awesome 80s song from the Waitresses? I Know What Boys Like is a modern classic, and seems to be the mantra of some game developers. Booze? Robots? Porn? Well, all you need is a steak/hamburger and you've got a Dennis Leary Cure for Cancer standup.
Steam Sales are always after your money. Awesome games at bargain prices, who can say no? Now, these prices aren't quiet comparable to the ones you saw in December, but some of them are pretty good.
I was going to write something awesomely witty here, but I was distracted a cool new feature of my indie wrap that you'll see after the jump. So, yeah - insert humorous and ironic statement here.
It's that time again! We're going to be playing with you again. No, not like that - we don't talk about that. Friday night (7 pm) is community play night, and we have an awesome game in mind. In fact, there's no voting this week, because this game is just too awesome not to play.
Mobile games have a pretty sorry reputation, some of it deservedly so. But then there’s Simogo, a developer who put out two – count ‘em, two – excellent iOS games last year that should make you rethink what the mobile platform is capable of. One of those titles, Year Walk, is making its way to PCs via Steam on March 6th. If you missed it last year, now you’re out of excuses.
Is the buzz getting to you? Have you been itching to see what all the fuss around The Witcher is all about? Got a PC with Steam loaded up? Then this news is for you: The Witcher Enhanced Edition and The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings are free to play on Steam until Sunday at 9PM GMT.
I can still remember anxiously paging through my 1995 issue of PC Gamer, the front cover of which declared Interplay’s groundbreaking shooter as “The Doom Killer.” My nostalgia muscle is squealing with glee right now.
I like playing games with our community - it's fun and welcoming. Plus, unlike our community get togethers, it doesn't involve consuming something I shouldn't. That's right, I was duped into smashing something in my face again - not a chili, but rather an awful syringe of deathly booze. At least when we play games together, I only have to worry about you all killing me off - that's way better!
The Castle Doctrine is a game based on the eponymous legal doctrine in America that designates a person's home as a place where they can use deadly force to protect themselves. The premise of the game is simple, and yet psychologically complex. At its core, the game is about protecting your home (and safe), complete with wife and kids, before going out to raid other houses. Yet as you play, you find yourself becoming more paranoid about your home, and more intent on revenge.
If there was ever a time to play Starbound, it’s now. The latest patch is the absolute last character wipe, so all character progress will be saved in later updates. Chucklefish confirmed on their development blog that the latest patch came out yesterday.
