So, would it be worth 3 playthroughs, just to see everyone's special area? That was my original plan, until I became sidetracked by Mark of the Ninja.

 

I thought it was fun seeing each person's area, yeah, new writing, new puzzles, etc..  But it doesn't stop replaying other characters parts from feeling like '...but I already did this one.'

So, would it be worth 3 playthroughs, just to see everyone's special area? That was my original plan, until I became sidetracked by Mark of the Ninja.

I played through it three times and thought it was worth it. It's pretty easy to breeze through the parts you've already played so it doesn't take to much time to replay the parts you've already seen. Each of the characters areas are pretty great, though I wish they'd made it so the number of characters matched up with the amount you play with so you didn't have to replay them as well (7 characters, but you can only take 3, so the final run you have to repeat two areas. 6/9 characters would have been a better choice I think).

 

With games like this w/multiple endings I wait to replay it later, like w/fallout new vegas I'm going to make different choices next time I play it, sometime next year maybe. If it's a game I don't like enough to replay I just youtube it. No use going through all the trouble replaying the game, but that doesn't mean I wouldn't like to see the different endings.

Normally I do this too, but subsequent playthroughs of The Cave only take 2-4 hours so I was just going to bang out each character. Then I found out there are good and bad endings and just said to heck with it...I might play it again sometime, but not for a while.

I played through The Cave once, and I was unimpressed by it enough that I didn't find it worth playing through it again to see everyone's story.

Some new old games on Steam this morning. . .  Jack Orlando and Enclave. I wonder whether we'll get Steam keys from Bundlestars and Groupees respectively.
 
Also I saw no one mentioned the Fables game being available for pre-order. I'm not big on pre-orders, but I hope Telltale has sorted out the issue with The Walking Dead where it loses your save file every time you update with a new episode.

I enjoyed The Cave a lot, but became pretty annoyed at having to play it five times minimum to see the different endings :joystick:

 

Why do you have to do it five times?

 

I thought it just required three?

There are seven characters each with a good and bad ending, so one the first two playthroughs you get one ending for each character, then the third get the first ending for the final character along with the other ending for the other two you bring, then finish off the other five endings in your next two playthroughs.

Voted YES as fast as I could find the button! It's crazy that Treasure has to go through the Greenlight process.  :whee:

 

 

Hey, Greenlight is all about egalitarianism. Treasure and teams composed of uninspired, ringtone slobs are EQUAL.

 

8-[

 

 

Booo, no DLC on sale.  I want my sexy Learned Siren.

 

 

Please, Neuro, I have a bad heart.

 

 

And black lungs but who's counting? Me. I have 2.

It has aliens now, just like a real American ER. The authenticity is staggering.

 

 

Since this is a doctor sim and all, you get to Fuck with people until you amass a fortune. And then you Fuck with people afterward merely because you're a bad person.

 

 

edit: 10+ edits. I am sharp.

Not sure if someone mentioned this already but it appears they may be patching GFWL out of Arkham Asylum and Arkham City GOTY editions. This guy has been watching those two games plus Bioshock 2. http://www.neogaf.co...ad.php?t=619976 Unfortunately my Arkham City is not the GOTY edition. :(

 

Well, everyone who had Bioshock 2 got upgraded with the DLC.  Maybe the same thing will happen with the Batman games.

 

I picked up Virtua Tennis for $2.40 from GMG in the summer sale.  If anyone wants to play a match or two, hit me up.

It's good for the fun times of trying to saw through a person with your character's hand at ridiculous angles. Worth the $3 in Steam cards I put for it last sale.

They've certainly stated their plans more clearly, which is probably something they should have done from the outset. I think this will help more people realize that the Steam Machine is meant as a console alternative and not as a replacement for everyone's current PC.

 

This is clearly a shot across the bow of Sony and Microsoft stating "We've got a machine for the living room that will always allow you to carry over your library from one generation to the next. We've got services that are free and friendly to the consumer. We have awesome sales and reasonably priced games. We don't necessarily need you."

So I went digging through the backlog for a short, fun game after GTA V and found The Cave. It's Double Fine at it's classic hilarity. Basically you explore a talking cave with 3 of the 7 characters at a time. The Cave taunts you when you die, but death has no penalties, you just respawn near the puzzle. Each character has an area with puzzles based on who they are. The knight has a castle with a dragon, the hillbilly has a carnival with games/puzzles etc. It is an easy game, but anyone who likes the visuals and writing of Double Fine should definitely think about playing this when you need a light game to break things up.

 

I caved and move this on top of the backlog. Thanks for the recommendation.

Yeah I was thinking that if we're really lucky that maybe they would upgrade regular owners to the GOTY editions of each game. I have GOTY of Asylum but I have regular for City and paid for a lot of the DLC also.

 

 

 

You can power a high end gaming rig with 450w?

High end CPU/GPU typically have a v2 released a while after, same power, less energy consumed. Pick a quality PSU, the right components, never overclock, you can easily have an awesome rig with reasonable power requirements.

I wonder how much these will be. That"s some beast hardware in there.

That's cool, I have a 650w currently and kind of thought I might have to upgrade it next time I upgrade my video card.
