Bro, use their customer service help line.

Found out my laptop runs bioshock 1 and 2 at very high settings.
And bioshock infinite on low.
Interesting tid bit: very low setting on bioshock infinite is literally what the game looks like on the consoles... Or at least that's how my eyes perceive it whilst comparing them side by side haha.

Re: (re)Newly Steam User

Yes. Yes, you should. Lol.

I fell in love with.
I had an old account back when Half Life 2 came out, but wasn't too impressed. It just felt like shitty DRM with a shitty selection of games.
Now it feels like shitty DRM with a pretty great selection of games.
Just gotta sift through some shit to find the diamonds though... Haha.

Im right with you

Its till DRm but they have SOO many games, and it gives indie devs a place to give it a go, solo, rather than having to work for the man getting a job at EA or whatnot

Game Dev Tycoon (on steam) is a pretty good game Ive killed many an hour on, that an indie dev put out at a reasonable price. And it follows the real life game cycle from Commodore 64 on up to today.

And bottom line, DRM or not, protections or not, if you truly want to pirate a game and have know-how, you will.

Pirating, in my experience at least, was a direct reaction to growing up poor.
The older i got, and the better jobs I've held, if shit is convenient then i will pay for it.

$10 game on gog or steam that i haven't played since 2000?
Sure.
$10.47 for all three bioshocks?
Sure.
That run optimally with a patch installation?
Fuck yea.

Ask me to copy and paste and edit line up and line of code to get a pirated game just to fucking run for free?
No. I haven't done that since i was too young for a job.
And i doubt I'll do it again.

Another thing, regardless of my love for conveniences...
You know what isnt convenient?
Sorting through the mass of shit that is on steam.
I know, you love indie game devs.
Great.
How about a separate section?
And a better rating system?
And a queue that's not fucking retarded.

Gah.

Re: (re)Newly Steam User

Personally, I tend to look at Metacritic ratings that show on the store section along with the generic Steam ones.  Helps me pick out games.  And they've tried implementing tags to allow better searches, but there are just so many games that it can be hit and miss.  Plus they've got their "curators" now who make lists of games they like.  Mostly I pay attention to games my friends are buying and what's selling the best during the firesales they go through twice a year.  Add anything I find remotely interesting to my wishlist.

Re: (re)Newly Steam User

On a different note, there's a game coming out soon that Chuck Ragan did the soundtrack for, it's called The Flame in the Flood.  A survival sim like Don't Starve.  They had a giant kickstarter that I failed to get in on and are in a closed beta right now.  No official release date, but I'm hoping for holiday season, depends on how rough the beta is.

Re: (re)Newly Steam User

I had no idea Chuck Ragan was doing a soundtrack for a game, so that's cool, and that game does look interesting. I like the old school adventure style that is coming back, and the Tim Burton Nightmare Before Christmas style animation is up my alley as well. Definitely going to keep an eye out for that one

Re: (re)Newly Steam User

Saints Row 3 was probably the best one. I thought 4 was way, way too over the top and cartoonish, but thats just me. Witcher are some of the best games out there, Witcher 1 is at least 40 hours, Witcher 2 gets into the 60-80 territory, and when you get to Witcher 3, its easy to get over 100, and you can hit 150-175 if you are a total completionist

And they follow the books pretty faithfully, although its a pain in the ass to get the series in English. Its based on a Polish book series, its like the Lord of the Rings for Poland.

The Stanley Parable was a good go, huh? Not at all what games normally are, but in a good way. Amnesia is great for a game that scares the crap out of you without always resorting to cheap Silent Hills gimmicks

The Witcher is just great, and since you started with 1, the game only gets better. Like, if you played Witcher 3 and then wanted to go back and try Witcher 1, it just doesnt compare. Go through 1 +2, by then Witcher 3 should be cheap
