Hey man, not trying to bite on your idea but I created a 4 for February thread so that people could pair up and get this started


No worries man, you've saved me some trouble. :)

Of note, though, is that the "pick 4 for someone else/they pick for you" was a modifier the OP at NeoGAF did with his friend; it's not really required. That might be worth noting in the topic, as that might otherwise stop people from participating.

But thanks for making the topic, hopefully it does well. I'll whip together a shortlist of, say, the 10 or 15 titles I wouldn't mind going through, and seeing if I can tap someone to partner up. (Motoki?)

I really liked the idea of you picking for someone and they pick for you, but seeing how its just a fun challenge I think its open to however people wanna do it.

I created a list of my entire PC backlog, but I am kinda scared to let someone pick 4 games from it, so I may have to slim the options down a bit to like 20-25 games

Haha, Dark Souls is on the list, but probably wont make the final cut for my eligible titles, theres quite a few of other really lengthy games that wont be a option either

Also, Blood Bowl Chaos Edition is $9.89 thru Gamestop right now, activates on Steam.


I was quite fond of the original on PC pre-Steam, I'm looking forward to re-hone my skills and play a couple of games.
Are there any fundamental changes between Legendary and Chaos editions, and is the latter worth buying if you already own the former?

That's why we should limit choices for (not overly long) story driven games... sims are ruled out by default, or maybe they could be choosen only if you can play them till obtaining a reasonable (still within the aforementioned play time) achievement.

Yeah, this isn't for me. I have around 850 I've never played and don't want to go through them all and weed out multiplayer-only games and the like. Although I did "beat" Rusty Hearts by getting all but one or two achievements. Good enough.

I've edited the OP in the topic giving some basic rules. Any game is fair game, as long as it has a defined end point of some kind, or a set amount of content that can be gone through. You can also say no to someone who acts rather an ass and picks all 200+ hour games or the like. It's just for fun, so don't overthink it too much guys. :bouncy:

Saw that you edited the OP, Thanks a ton. I knew someone would be able to set it up better than I had. Looking forward to see how this unfolds.

I think Chaos adds a new team or something quite underwhelming. Stick with Legendary if you already own it and play casually.

King of Fighters and Halo 1-3? That interesting. The gem of the bunch is clearly Fast and Furious 6 though. That should be quality.

Edit: Cool, Fez and Lococycle are on there. I'll play those.

The indie stuff makes sense, but the Halo's seem kinda odd. They announced they were shutting down Halo 2 PC multiplayer this month, why would they do that if they were launching it on a new storefront which would substantially increase the playerbase?

Cool. Based on those that I recognize, it makes sense. The most surprising one for me is Second Life... I suppose they need the exposure. Even Halo 3 makes sense to me, it's no longer a driving reason to get a (or replace your RROD'd) 360, so might as well monetize it on PC.

I have a recurring dream where I awaken on a crisp winter morning and fresh snow has blanketed the ground outside my bedroom window. I brew a cup of black coffee and check my email, only to find a notification that I have in fact been added to the Steam registry.

I do a search in the Steam client, then, after several minutes, exit out of the client, because it's taking too long. Instead I execute the same search on Steam's site in my browser, and find that while I am not a product for sale, I do have a community hub.

Eagerly, I look to see what's posted there.

So it's going to change to Multiplayer going through Steam instead of being shut down. Microsoft doesn't have to run servers anymore, but still gets some sales from Steam. Steam gets a cut of sales of Halo games. Win-win.

This is not news; entries are added to the CDR all the time that end up being nothing. Final Fantasy 7 and 14 were both added to the database in 2011: http://cdr.thebronas...e:final fantasy

^_^ When I first heard of that deal I was like, "meh." Now thinking about it, it is 25% off a Blizzard game (at release to boot). Looking at that list, Blizzard's $40 MSRP looks rather more favorable than the $50 and $60 launch prices.
