Yeah. It's a very fun game. Simple yet quite difficult once you reach the 'blue' space section. Tried to get my wife into it but she only wants to rock 'Streets Of Rage Remake' - She wants to beat it on Mania with no continues.

Really glad to hear you found something you like. Maybe we should get together. Another person from here has been asking me to hop in from time to time and I think I may give DDO another shot soon. I kinda of gave MMORPGs the cold shoulder awhile back but already my heart is warming up with so many more MMO type games coming out that were former retail and all of the PM request.

I play on Khyber server. I ended up paying about $100 for the whole game, not a bad deal since I play all the time.

If you start I can give you a hookup on some gear and cash.

Sounds good. I will have to make a new character for that server. I will PM you when I'm done creating it.

In the mean time, Xfire, Raptr, STEAM and AIM name are Megazell.

Software Spotlight

STEAM

Posted Image

Steam is a digital distribution, digital rights management, multiplayer and communications platform developed by Valve Corporation. It is used to distribute games and related media online, from small independent developers to larger software houses. Steam also has community features, automated game updates, and in-game voice and chat functionality.

As of May 2011, there are over 3,368 games available through Steam, and over 30 million active user accounts. Although Valve never releases sales figures, Stardock, owner of Impulse, a platform competing with Steam, estimated that Steam has a 70% share of the digital distribution market for video games.

Many major publishers have large catalogues available on Steam, including Bethesda Softworks, Activision, Rockstar Games and others.

STEAM also have freeware games to be enjoyed along with a compliment of Free To Play games.

Megazell's Comment - When you get STEAM for free some features are not fully functional until a purchase is made. For example, the friend list will be available but you will be unable to add others until you make a purchase or recieve a gift (free game that they may have purchased) from another STEAM user. Also Humble Bundle are made every once and awhile where you donate (from .01 and up) to indie developers for a suite of games...those games may have STEAM counter parts and will register as a purchase.

You really don't buy any games? Not even fantastic deals such as The Orange Box or games with unlimited replayability like Starcraft?
These games also are a modder's delight for a massive amount of other free games, with long-term support and free servers as well.

Somewhere on CAG is an actual list of every PC game I bought when I supported retail PC games. Though I did support it back in the day I would never pay full retail. I always found a way to get it for less (Extreme Couponing FTW).

With the advent of DRM, DLC and other nonsense I stopped buying any PC games all together. The last game I thought about buying was 'Disciples 3'...but it was a no go because all of the nonsense it came attached with.

On top of this I often get retail PC games for free from various places. On CAG alone I have over 130 games on STEAM through gifts from other forum members. I get games for free retail games though bank reward programs. I get free games from forum giveaways like what 'Green Man Gaming' is doing right now. Giving out 160 retail games.

Then you have betas like what OnLive did where I got to play and end the latest Batman game.

I'll donate to freeware developers but I'm done with supporting retail PC gaming.

I'm inclined to agree with you. I'm getting more and more selective about what I will actually shell out money for. I used to do a lot of preorders based on hype, but now I wait til each game is thoroughly reviewed or discounted. My last purchases were Mass Effect 2, Starcraft 2, Portal 2, and the Witcher 2 (that's a lot of 2s, I know, which just goes to show that I only really got them out of some loyalty to the franchises). I guess it's a combination of all the disappointment, DRM and BS like you said, and also the fact that I just have so many games that really don't get old and I'll probably still be playing them years from now, so I really don't need more.

I have HL, HL: Opposing Force, HL: Blue Shield and SC. I actually gave them all away here on CAG and then ended up getting them again as gifts from various places. A long time ago I had a MOD thread like this one but not as refined. It was on the Quake9 forums and Planet Half-Life. I had mods for Quake, Doom, HL, UT, Solider Of Fortune and some other non-FPS games. Those are great games and the mod communities for them is still going strong.

But I don't think in this climate those games would be released today the way they were back then.

Thankfully, many of these freeware and F2P games have the same following and mods, maps, models, skins and more come out for them often.

Well I'm just asking because there are a lot of obscure titles here, which is why I keep coming back to this thread as a reference to find new ones I'd likely never find on my own. I tend to get lost sometimes though, not that you don't have it organized well but because there's just so many, and I don't really know how popular they all are. I don't really have the time to just try them all myself.

You put a lot of work into this, and I really can't ask for more, but a lot of the game details aren't very personal, they're just developer descriptions so I don't actually know your thoughts on them. Personally I'm mostly a fan of RPGs, strategy, and shooters. Co-op multiplayer is nice, but only if there is a very active community with dedicated servers to play on, otherwise just single player.

Yeah. It's intentional that I don't 'review' the games too much outside of a small comment here or there. I think reviews should be empirical - Story/Description, System Requirements, Warnings about mature content, Warnings about bugs/errors/glitches and genre.

For strategy games I would try 'Glest' - It has a large mod community and 'Dwarf Fortress' - You can spend years finding all of the mods for that one and still not hit a 1/10 of what's out there.

For shooters (I think you mean FPS?) - I would get on 'HL2: Deathmatch' - Lots of mods, maps and dedicated servers. There are a few CO-OP maps where you and others take on custom made bosses and such in a mode that looks and feels a lot like UT 2k4 Invasion mode. For CO-OP FPS I would go with AA3, Tremulous and AVA not many mods there but lots of players and servers.

For RPGs games I would try games like 'Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup', 'Iter Vehemens ad Necem', 'Linley's Dungeon Crawl aka Crawl', 'Nazghul' and 'Nethack' - They are not pretty but lots of campaigns and mods available with some very devoted crowds.

With all those hats, crates and keys costing real money, it seemed like the next logical step. Last time I played was the during the annual Halloween event with the boss with special item that would appear (forgot his name). I'm thinking now is a good time to try low-res mode TF2 http://forums.steamp...d.php?t=1149207

Everyone's jumping on the freeware/F2P train. Hope the STEAM servers can take it.

Man, TFC was one of my most played mods from Quake 2 to HL 1. It's going to be fun to try this since I have so many friends that play it.

Hahaha, was wondering how long it was gonna take for you to post TF2 in here. Glad to see it wasn't long at all. Valve getting your Megazell seal of approval after Alien Swarm, TF2, and semi-officially supporting other free to play games?
