I don't think I ever got it

 

I'll try sending again.


In Topic: keeping track of your digital games?

The advantage to something like Backloggery is you can link to it.  So if a friend wants to play a specific game with you, they can just look it up and see what you both have in common (from reading, I can't recall if it has a list compare function).

 

Actually, CAG has that kind of thing as well, doesn't it?


In Topic: SteamOS - releasing "soon"

Linux is already remarkably secure, because the vast majority of viruses and exploits are written for Windows.

 

"Not being Windows" doesn't make an OS secure.  As the saying goes, security through obscurity is NOT security.  I can use BeOS or something else very few people know about, but that doesn't, by itself, make it secure.

 

And I'd kind of contest the claim that "Linux is secure" anyway.  Security Tracker always has far more issues for Linux than for Windows.

If anyone is playing Darksiders 2, I just finished the game and all the DLC.

 

IMO, the DLC isn't really worth it: it was barely even worth playing, so don't feel you have to get any of it or worry about what is "best".  The Crucible is really good: they should have made THAT a DLC, or made something as creative as that.  The game also has unique weapons, but there are only two worth using (Achidna's Fangs and Aftermath, otherwise possessed weapons are far better).

 

 

BTW, if anyone starts playing and gets possessed weapon(s), PM me here and I can boost it up for you.  Plus you get an achievement for doing a trade, so you'll get two things out of it!  I have about 8.5 million gold, so it's not like it's costing me anything.

 

I'm going to probably uninstall it in a while (a few weeks I guess), so try letting me know sooner rather than later.


In Topic: Stuck in FF VIII (PS1)- Start of disc 4

FF8 was an oddity, not just in FF but among all JRPGs, in that you should be able to finish it at any level.  There are even "low level runs" where people try to complete it with as little xp as possible.

 

I remember junctioning endlessly to max out my stack of "spells" which I'd never cast, just because I wanted the biggest bonus it would provide.  Interesting design... in concept... but the implications of certain aspects made for a lot of boring grinding.
