I had to log in to my secondary steam account just to check it, but it appears to have been used.

Cheers, means that it's another key to cross off of my list.

Conquest of Elysium 3 is pretty great thus far. Ridiculously easy to learn the basics of since there's no base building or city management and very little in the way of development for your units, plus combat is automated. Despite that it seems to still have a good amount of depth (Each faction seems to play fairly significantly differently) and it's satisfying running around the map scooping up towns and building armies.

I was gonna say the AI might be questionable, but it may just be the barbarians have an easier early-game than the Cthulhu cultist race. The Cthulhu AI player wandered up near my camp early game and I squished both his armies and commanders super easily. Now I've found a troll/goblin AI player and he's much more dangerous. Has an ancient wizard troll who can summon frogs which is a major pain in the ass since it makes a bunch of distractions for my soldiers to fight while his real troops wail on them.

Cool game, saved an otherwise terrible indie royale.

While I'm at it - given how amazing Bioshock 1 was, I really hope Bioshock: Infinite lives up to its INSANE hype-o-meter...


Well, Bioshock 2 came in between, and that was a step down from the first (still good, but more of a rehash), so Infinite doesn't have to worry about being the bastard stepchild, I guess.

So I finally got around to installing Diablo 3, over a week since it arrived. It was all in all quite confusing and far too much effort. First I had to break into this outer envelope thing. Then figure how to open the damn box, shuffle through "guest passes" and stuff to finally find this round silvery thing. So I pop it into my computer and launch the installer... after some confusion and aborted attempts (and a reboot) I figured how to install it to E:\Games\ (on the accept EULA screen, WTF?). So then the disc starts spinning, making lots of noise, so I decide to go take a shower and wash my hair. When I finish it's still not done. A few minutes later the disc finally stopped spinning, now it wants to download stuff, and chew most of my CPU while downloading. I haven't even gotten around to precisely copying some long alphanumeric code from print media into my battle.net account. Jeez... Kinda makes me appreciate my steam pruchases, a couple of mouse clicks, and maybe a copy-paste.

I played your little game. Got tripped up on MC Kage's name though. Off the top of my head, I thought Kage started with a C.

Re: D3, you can't really discount user reviews because they mention the always-on. Like it or not (and I certainly didn't), it's part of the game and is basically cited as a feature. Sure, it got review bombed by halfwits, but it's a legitimate aspect of the experience to consider.

Bleh. Apparently Jet Set Radio on Steam is buggered. Ran it and it was running way too slow. Found a guy who hacked it and you need a program to set it to 30 FPS. Also, I don't know if I can play it with a keyboard.

I do have to admit, they make teaming up pretty easy. Basically, I just consider Diablo III an MMoG.

STARTROPICS? WHERE? I played that on NES, so lovely.
Disappointed Far Cry 3 doesn't have achievements, would be a perfect game for it being open world. I don't like non-steam works games. Its just bad all over.
Here's hoping and praying that Terraria's successor gets Steam achievements. Starbound will be my goty 2013.

On other note. Looking forward to scouring GOty 2012 lists to fill up my Steam wishlist for winter sales! YES!

Why would you set it to 30? What does it run at otherwise? X(

So do ALL games allow it now? I enabled it in the dev menu awhile ago, but certain games still didn't allow you to select which install location you wanted. In fact I think I ran into that a few days ago...

(Not really a big deal if you know how to symlink though.)

Imo, the always-online nature of it is a clear given. I don't see the value of that in user reviews. It's not a hidden gotcha. i however agree it sucks. Moreso, it adds unnecessary lag in my single player gaming.

In my experience, no. Not a big deal if you have a 2TB drive dedicated to steam =) Telling Diablo 3 where to install was just daft. It's on the screen with the EULA.

Becomes an issue when you run Steam from an SSD like I do. Symlinking solves the problem easily though. Not as complicated as people make it out to be.

For example.

  • Download LA Noire (13GB).
  • Install LA Noire.
  • Launch LA Noire.
  • Nothing happens.
  • Spend 2 hours scouring the net to see what's wrong.
  • Spend another 2 hours trying ridiculous fixes.
  • Fail.
  • Ragequit and delete everything that says "LA Noire" on your PC.
  • Hold yourself back from deleting all other Rockstar games on your PC out of sheer rage.
