Does anyone ever have unfounded "What if Steam goes away and I lose all my games" moments, where they want to start buying a bunch of DRM free games?

It's silly, but I do. I'm trying to imagine Gaben holding my hand, whispering reassuring words to me.

Realize if GabeN does that, he's just imagining that you look like a giant turkey (like the old Warner Bros. cartoons) and is getting ready to eat you.

Not that silly, our steam libraries are essentially indefinite rentals.  In the event that steam dissolves I'm sure valve would have some retention policy, but it's not an unfounded fear.

If I did that I would need to change my name to Hans and move to Europe and post rants about the evils of DRM that requires an internet connection when I just bought a new 300 baud modem, how I caress my retail boxes of Paint Drying Simulator at night, and how David Hasslehoff rocks.

Dark souls isn't as bad as people make it out to be. If you Summon people it's actually somewhat easy

I came close to throwing controllers a number of times.  I did not summon assistance for most of the Boss fights.  Fantastic game, challenging, worth playing, but can and will frustrate.

 

I am thinking specifically of a time I had accumulated a very large number of souls and died.  On the way back to the spot to grab the souls, I got stuck trying to jump off an elevator platform and fell to my death.  This would be in addition to dying dozens of times trying to defeat the four kings and other bosses.

I object to this blatant statement of ignorance and stereotyping....

Is the PC community for Awesomenauts better than PS4? Its just a dead ragequit fest there.

Last I played there was a decent amount of people playing, and I don't remember a ton of ragequiting. It's best if you can find two other friends to play with though, since I'm not sure what the odds of communicating with randoms is.

There will be giveaways for donators only too which is not that many people. Last time, every donator won something.

 

I'm thinking of doing some charity auctions too and some other giveaways on the CAG and WGN forums.

Last time I donated and won like $80 worth of games.  It was pretty awesome.  YMMV obviously, but it definitely ups your chances of winning if you donate.

I could donate a couple bucks to Indie Gala and win $80 worth of games!

It would be great if we could have a glossary in the OP, as it's hard to keep track sometimes.   That way no one would read it and we can have another thing to give the newbies, console peasants, and lurkers a hard time about.

 

I know that to Gilby is to see a bundle, think about buying it, and then forget about it until it is no longer on sale.

We all know what it is to Spoder.

You have FakeyBro and Solid Snake Eyes covered.  What am I missing?

Palinn claimed a definition early on: to forget one has bought a bundle/deal and buy it again.  There were actually a bunch more in one of the other threads last month.

 

Some of the optional stuff in that game is controller-breakingly hard. That room with the disappearing blocks...*shudder*

I gave up on that part.  Did everything else, but obviously didn't see the 100% ending.

And to think that Microsoft might actually overtake Amazon in the cloud service industry...what has this world come to?

Nuuvem has Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Ultimate Edition (Steam) for $5.51
 
Ultimate Edition includes:

  • Reverie DLC 
  • Resurrection DLC

 
I overlooked that Nuuvem is having a Castlevania Lord of Shadows sale and according to ITAD these are also at their lowest historical price:
 
Castlevania: Lord of Shadows - Mirror of Fate HD (Steam) - $4.42
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 (Steam) - $16.13

Just in case anyone was curious.

Only if it was a AAA kick in the nuts, and you took 75% off your normal price. MysterD ain't got no time for full price or indie kicks in the nuts.

 

How about one of these?

It's not the easiest game for beginners. Most of the people who play are veterans and not newbies, and have vastly superior characters unlocked.

 

Personally I think the MP is just annoying in Awesomenauts, though I can't say it's a terrible game. The game is just too dependent on your entire team being very good, so if you get even one terrible player you pretty much lose.
