Jeez what is it, indie month on Steam?

Half Minute Hero 66% off #3.39


Seems GODLY RPG MONTH to me... but, if they start so high, I'm afraid they can only go downwards from here... next up, Legend of Grimrock half-off! ;)

That looks cool. From the makers of Magicka and it looks to have Magicka style DLC plans, probably in an indie bundle eventually, but still interesting concept.

Multiplayer only, unfortunately... judging by the developers' talent, they could have easily implemented a story mode with tons of scenes and situations ripped straight from the 80s, but maybe that would have also required tons of nearly perfect voice acting and thus a bigger budget...

Slightly off-topic, but I remember some people asking to be updated about that $20 Playstation Vita from ebay a while back.

I received my package today. Ordered two different things, so I was hoping to get at least two items. Nope, only got 1 counterfeit 1885 coin worth 5 Swiss francs. I would've disputed it to get my money back either way, but I was hoping to at least get something remotely usable. I guess Ip Man has given me false faith in the integrity of Chinese men; they truly are the sick men of Asia. ;)

Just a joke, I'm not racist!

I hope I get something that interesting in my package, though I already got my money back so I'm not too concerned about what ends up showing up.

Man, Microsoft crushed the "Halo on Steam" rumors a bit, but I'm not entirely convinced that these titles won't make it to the service. Halo 3 did make me suspicious, since it doesn't have an existing PC port (Unlike the other two). However, Halo 3 did get its own Community Hub page. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

After all, Ms. 'Splosion Man had a Steam entry as well as Steam Achievements before it vanished, so anything is still possible.

Even if Halo 3 got a PC release, I don't see many people buying it. It isn't exactly a new release.

Microsoft response:
http://www.eurogamer...-steam-database

Update: It looks like Halo isn't coming after all.

"We currently do not have plans to release any 'Halo' titles on Steam," said a Microsoft spokesperson in response to our query.


Key word = CURRENTLY.
Doesn't mean that in the FUTURE, it will or won't wind-up on Steam or the XBox For Win 8 Marketplace.

I believe it was during the winter sale. Something along the lines of own this get 30% off and own this get X% off. The discounts were not supposed to combine but they did, making it relatively cheap.

Yes. You should have an electric guitar already, or check out the Rocksmith thread for a cheap one. The physical copy comes with a 1/4" to USB jack that you'll need to even play the game.

It's a basic rhythm game, but the challenge progresses the better you do. It doesn't actually teach you how to play guitar, but it does a good job at familiarizing you with how to play certain songs. The auto-tuner is great if you're just beginning and don't know how to tune by ear. And there are many mini-games that try to familiarize you with note placement. You might end up playing those more than the songs, actually; the Duck Hunt style game does well in "teaching" you the location of frets and how to play them fast without looking. I had some trouble with note detection, but once I started playing softer it was fine.

It won't teach you names, placements, or how to play or write your own music. It doesn't teach you theory or fundamentals. What it does teach you, through repetition, is how to play some popular songs. And if you want to practice while having fun, it's a fine game for that. It's much better than any Guitar Hero or Rock Band game, but not quite a course on how to play guitar. It's more of a segue between the two.
