I still love the innovation coming out of Valve (like their VR and controller work), but today I listened to the Beastcast Episode 2 and saw that Steam is implementing game refunds. This is something GOG has offered for quite some time now. It appears that GOG is starting to eat Valve’s lunch as it’s […]
Yesterday I put in for the GOG Galaxy Beta and today I got my invite. I couldn’t wait to get home to see it in action. I did not bury the lead, it was exactly as I state in the title, A Good First Start. The settings are so minimal at this point that it […]
If I mentioned it on this site, I wasn’t able to find it in a search because of the generic word, but I was very annoyed and pretty upset about EA’s Origin store and platform. Part of what I enjoy so much about playing PC games is that the only limitations on what you can […]
Although I didn’t play as much on average, I did take advantage of one weekend to do a mini marathon in my Extra Life playing. It led to my biggest donation yet! The Witcher (17 hours) I’m still having fun playing this game, mostly due to the great dialogue writing. I’m at a point in […]
The Witcher (15 hours) Assassin’s Creed was the first game series Vinnie of Giant Bomb convinced me to try by talking about it endlessly on the Bombcast. The Witcher is the second. (This is why I miss his voice on that podcast so much) It has turned out to be a lot more fun than […]
Civilization V (30 minutes) – We got a few turns in our multiplayer games, but other important things (like planning weddings, perhaps) have kept my brothers from sending me new turns. Pac-Man Championship Edition DX+ (38 minutes) – I got it as part of a Humble Bundle because eventually my PS3 will die or be […]
Civilization: Beyond Earth (7 hrs): This game was a great evolution on Civ V. I enjoyed that they continued with the same sense of humor. I also thought they did a good job evolving things so that it felt different enough. It’ll probably take a few games before I get the hang of all the […]
This year I did not play as many new games as in previous years. I was deep in my graduate degree and most of my free time was during work travel. Since I don’t have a powerful laptop (and Steam on Linux was just taking off early on this year anyway), most of that time […]
Poker Night 2 (2 hrs) – Played with Danielle thanks to Steam in-house streaming. Also played alone to unlock some more skins. Xenogears (1 hr) – After having wanted to play this for around 15 years, finally started. So far my best friend is getting married, I was raised by the Elder, and people fight […]
Civilization V (1 hr) – Dan, Dave, and I didn’t play too much because life got in the way and then the GMR servers went offline. We hope to play some more in the following month. Poker Night 2 (30 minutes) – Testing out Steam’s internal streaming from Windows to Linux.
Can you erase us from the Mr. Do! Top scores? AAA is me from when I didn’t know how to change the letters.
I still really love using Linux, but I don’t follow the Linux press like I used to. I’ve settled into a comfortable zone where I only follow Fedora and KDE news since that’s what I use. But I followed it very closely for nearly 10 years. Every year there’d be multiple articles asking whether this […]
In order of most to least: Watch Netflix Watch Amazon Watch Youtube Listen to music via uPNP Play PSN games Play disc-based games So…I doubt I’ll be getting a PS4 or any next gen system. I could get by with a Roku (or Google or Amazon or whoever streaming stick) and a laptop to stream […]
Civilization V (18 hrs): Mesa Bros I noticed Dan was on my borders right when I started having the Cho Ku Nu, my special unit. Having played civ and RTS games with Dan, I figured it was strike or be struck. So I went to war. Unfortunately, Dan fights better than AI and because of […]
This is completely unacceptable and these people are complete jerks for doing this to Sarkeesian.
