In the Steam Community Beta, did they take away where you could see what the top 3 most played games for a group were for the previous two weeks? I can't seem to see it anywhere when I click on all the various tabs.

It looks like they did, yeah. I don't see any options to add it in, either, from the admin tools. That's probably an oversight, because it seems like the kinda social networking metadata they'd want to keep. The old-school store pages still reflect which of your friends own/want/are playing that particular game, though.

It's not due next spring, there is no official information on the game at all let alone a release date.

Today's deal is The Adventures of Shuggy at 75% off ($2.49).


Excellent. This one's on my wishlist and it was only 50% off during the Summer Sale, if I recall correctly. At $2.49, Shuggy looks good enough to buy now.


In other Indie news, I finally got to play some of Dynamite Jack yesterday. It's a bit simpler than I'd hoped. Levels are brief and always start you without any of your tools. Each of these level morsels gives you three optional objectives, some of which double as Steam achievements. The levels tend to focus on spotting patterns to avoid guards and traps with the occasional use of bombs to lure guards away from necessary passages.

It is fun, though I can't see anyone playing it for more than an hour at a time. Probably better as a mobile game. I guess I was just hoping for something more cohesive where you don't revert to being powerless every two minutes and with more freedom to bomb your way around. I expect I'll complete every level and each's challenges (except maybe a few of the time trials, never liked those) and never look back.

I'll give it this, though. Deaths are effectively creepy to the result of really wanting to avoid them.

Is getting Just Cause 1 worth it if I already played 2 to death? Not sure if it's much of a downgrade or not.


I have not played 2 because I wanted to play the first, I just bought it the other day and must day, it feels really clunky, the shooting has that 'tank turret' feel a lot of older shooters have. The "story" is not engaging in the slightest, after one small 45 minute sittings, I don't really want to go back and play it, I imagine if I will just jump on the second game (Which I played a bit of and enjoyed at a friends) ignoring the first game completely.

I know some people were talking about Dark Souls and were upset about how terrible of a port it was going to be. You were spot on, but with Durante's resolution fix + a controller the game is phenomenal. I mean the game is just fun no matter what, but the resolution fix solves the blurry textures and adds the ability to hide the mouse cursor (Oh yes the white mouse cursor is visible in game) and with how the movement works I really wouldn't to work with kb/m controls.

If you have never tried Demons'ssss's's'sss's'sss Souls or Dark Souls then you definitely should because they are very fun. I can understand not wanting to support such a shoddy port, but the fixes make it perfectly fine.

after further review, I retract my previous statement but it's sometimes hard to fight my cag instincts. I believe it will be at a lower price within 3 months, just saying. Not Gay


Was there a reason for that random bit of homophobia?

Just play the second and enjoy the new multiplayer, the first isn't going to offer you anything new or original.

I'm with hal. Shuggy looks worth it at $2.49 to buy it now rather than wait until who-knows-when.

It's funny how we say that every game that looks remotely indie at a price point under $10 is going to be in an indie bundle. ;)

(Probably a third of them actually show up in a bundle...)

Terraria - $1 (Steam),  X3: Terran Conflict - $2 (Steam)Fable: The Lost Chapters - $2 (Steam)

I gave up on the indie bundles. I figure I have over 200 games on Steam now and it's just getting ridiculous getting all these extra games that at some point I just need to stop and play what I have. I work over 60 hrs a week, so I do not get much gaming time in every week.

It was part of last year's Halloween sale, so it's a pretty good bet.
