Richard Donner's Superman laid the foundation for all superhero flicks.  Tim Burton's Batman films are two of my all-time favorite movies.  I cannot understand how Warner Brothers, who owns these two characters, has fallen so low as to give them both to a hack director like Snyder.  It's like the studio just gave up after Bryan Singer's Supe-reboot, and said "screw it, let's find a director who will work cheap".

Warner Bros was looking for a director who A) Hates women, and B) Hates women. That way they can keep saying that a Wonder Woman movie would never work. They can point at all Snyder's movies and say, "Women are just props, man!"

Thanks for your help. I want a physical copy because the person I'm giving it to has a shitty Internet connection and can't download the game. You can still install games that require Steam from discs, right? I'm not familiar with PC games nowadays.

You can, but he'd still have to download any updates through Steam..

Sometimes yes, sometimes yes with a shit-ton of hoops to jump through.

You can, but he'd still have to download any updates through Steam..

 

If his connection won't allow any connection to Steam at all, he's hosed.  If he can connect for the occasional "authentication check", then he can play it -- but only after it's been patched with whatever updates weren't on the disc.

 

If your friend is close enough to you to come over to your house, and your own Internet connection is good, here's what I would suggest:

 

1) Have him come over and log in to his Steam account at your house.

2) Buy him the game (or install it from the disc).

3) Let the game install, register to his account, and download whatever patches are necessary.

4) Use the "Back up games" function to save LP3 to compressed files.

5) Copy those compressed files to a thumbdrive or DVD or portable HDD -- something he can take home with him.

6) Make sure he logs out of his Steam account before leaving.

7) When he gets home, he logs into Steam, and then uses the "Restore games" function to install the game from the compressed files.

8) Tell Steam not to download any more updates for the game.

9) After starting the game once, he should be able to put Steam into offline mode and play it from there.  (Steam sometimes ignores the "do not download" setting, so playing offline ensures that no additional patches will get installed.)

I really doubt Lost Planet 3 is worth all of that effort though..

Well, I was going to say that it probably doesn't have much in the way of updates outside of minor bug fixes.

#7332 spoderman  

Posted 30 April 2014 - 08:33 PM

So.. the lamest cash grab I've noticed today is this.

 

The differences seem to be commentary, achievements, steam cloud, soundtrack, and trading cards.. all of which could've been patched into the original game.

 

I bet they didn't even fix any of the bugs that were in the original.. This is just pathetic.

Got my Paranormal State key, does this game have cards or should I not bother installing it?
 
Oh, it does have cards.

Thanks for thinking aloud again! 
 

You're easy to please

No kidding, I didn't even have to buy him dinner.

Hey, you look like you have a lot of money; how about donating some of it to my Extra Life drive?

Croixleur Sigma is on Steam now, if you got it from Groupees Build a Doujin they have keys. It's a fun little game, sort of like a Devil May Cry or Dynasty Warriors. You can beat it in 15 minutes if you want to cross one off the backlog, but there's extra weapon types and another character so you might want to play more than once. Plus weeaboo card$.

You forgot to mention that it also gives Playfire Rewards as of today as well. :-P

 

Available until Tuesday 6 May, 2014 @ 23:59 UTC:

We will add more rewards for BloodRayne and Croixleur when we have access to the achievements.

  • BloodRayne Betrayal - play for the first time - £0.10
  • Child of Light - play for the first time - £0.10
  • Croixleur Sigma - play for the first time - £0.10

 

You're free to your opinion but games that suck don't usually get three installments. It's not Raven Squad. I enjoyed it quite a bit.

Well, yeah. A game can have a good first and second game, and a terrible third game. But, I'm sure there are SOME bad games that got two sequels, probably a licensed game series.

 

I enjoyed LP1, LP2 was okay from what I remember, but LP3 was hot trash is what I think people are saying. And I'm inclined to agree.

 

This is how kids conceived while watching Evangelion turn out.  Next time, don't forget to use protection.

Neon Genesis Evangelion (新世紀エヴァンゲリオン Shin Seiki Evangerion?, literally "Gospel of a New Century"), commonly referred to as NGE, Evangelion or Eva, is a Japanese science-fantasy mecha dystopia genre animation series that first aired from October 1995 to March 1996.

 

BobbyTastic's birthday -> Dec 1990

 

Gonna have to take offense to you calling me 17 - 19 years old, possibly even younger as my parents do not know Japanese.

 

And for reminding me that I know the day I was conceived, and how disgusting knowing that is. :wall:

Yup, it's tempting me too.

Looks like you can't buy the Classics separately any more either. That's okay, they were overpriced to begin with.

 

Serious Sam sale going on, I only have XXL. Hmm, to buy a Serious Sam bundle off of SteamTrades, or to try and get a cheap price on the Sam collection?

I pressume most CAGS who own the classic games, bought it from the Serious Sam Humble Weekly or Indie Royale.

Due to gamespy shutdown, you can't play the original multiplayer online anymore and they added steamworks to 

Revolution.

 

According to the store page on future updates:

  • A brand new campaign with new and exciting enemies, environments and a special ending boss! 
  • The beloved Plasmagun and Minelayer from the Warped mod! 
  • Even more new and refined gamemodes! 
  • Even moooooore achievements, and icons for them! 
  • A fully featured scripting engine for advanced mod creation! 
  • More OpenGL shader integration like post processing and more! 
  • More versus maps and fixes to the current ones based on user feedback! 
  • For modders, we'll be adding a set of tutorial maps to showcase the new features we've added to the engine! 
  • Steam Trading Cards!

You're young, enjoy it while it lasts.  I hated my 20's.  Though, I was in better physical shape than I am now.

 

I was conceived as a birthday accident surprise for my mom.  Sex...it's kind of a natural (or unnatural if you're into those sorts of things) thing, deal with it..

A friend of mine wouldn't speak to me for a little while after I pointed out that she and her sister, who have birthdays just a few days apart, were born almost exactly 9 months after their dad's birthday.
