"PC gamers are whiny bitches" = is nearly in tears when half life 2 is shat on and he realises he'll never get a conclusion to the story.

why would someone care about the story in half-life?  I thought people wanted HL3 for gameplay reasons.

oh god, y'all fell in love with the fake blasian waifu, didn't you?

No, I just want a conclusion to the story, like fatstuff promised, that's all.

I like the story, too.

Also, I've been holding my tongue, but here it is. A lot of people giving me grief are the same people who'll play the same JRPGs over and over again, dozens of them, each with 20-30 hours of the most mind-numbing insipid storylines ever written, and they'll go back for more with their tongues hanging out when the next in the "series" comes out. And giving ME shit about liking the story in Half-Life 2? All y'all can eat my dick and a bullet.

Cruncheons :rejoice

Is the windows phone talk Eel's Lumia 520? I am a step away from ordering that myself. I was thinking about the 5c but I'm off contract and the Lumia is $120... I just figure I'll play with windows phone 8 for a year and then upgrade to something better when I (hopefully) have more spending money. Plus I figure saving money on the phone frees up some tablet money :drool If I grabbed a 5c that's basically it for months

Looking forward to the Legend of Dungeon talk. I've been meaning to look into that one for awhile. Looks interesting

I never cared for 1 at all tbh...it took me over a year to finally beat because it was so boring. As far as 2 it's not so much a fleshed out story as the world that it is set in. I definitely agree that actual story is weak...but enough to keep me interested in playing HL3 whenever it comes out. I'm sure as hell not invested in it like some.

Doug is spot on about Minecraft. What surprised me most is the amount of deathmatch servers. If the kids aren't playing normal minecraft or watching minecraft youtube videos, they are probably playing a deathmatch game on some server

My kid asked me about Cubeworld the other day. Cubeworld, a game in alpha that released two months ago and kids already know about it because it looks like Minecraft with magic

Since I don't own a 360 I'm looking forward to buying a Vita TV and letting them play Minecraft on the TV. I can finally get my computer back :rejoice

We had to impose a ban on Minecraft YouTube videos. It was getting out of hand. I bet the guys putting those videos on are getting rich.

I know the Yogscast people are making a killing. They have a company, an office, several contributors, some of which live off of the income... It's pretty nuts.

Goddammit, thanks for buzzkill bros.

Here I am all excited about valve doing shit that might as well be personally offering me blowjobs.

  • Big ass server in the office
  • mini itx machines for every TV in the house
  • huge steam library with multiple accounts


Oh shit, Yoritomo has trouble playing M+KB games in the living room and bedroom? We'll make him a controller. He's sick of logging his brats into his steam account on their machine? Library sharing. He ran networking cable to every room in his house? Game streaming. Windows 8 pisses him off as an HTPC OS due to individual metro apps having shitting compatibility with remote/keyboard controls? Steam OS.

But I'm a unique flower. So even if valve doesn't take over the world, they're currently fellating me.

Doesn't library sharing mean that if someone is logged in playing ANYTHING in your shared library, you can't log in to play anything, even if it's not the game they're currently playing?  Or did I hear that wrong?

No I think you heard right. Now when my daughter wants to play a game in my library she won't fuck up my save games, and I don't have to log her in, but it works the same otherwise. If I decide to play something and she's playing a game she doesn't own she gets booted. It ain't ideal but it's a step and better than what we have to deal with right now.

Just want to confirm the elementary school minecraft obsession.

My 7 year old has minecraft as a default. She'll play other games and screw around on web games, but when all else bores her she falls back to minecraft.

I'm trying to avoid being the admin for a server of elementary school kids.

Fun fact: My cell bill is $293/mo..... 4 phones. I get $95/mo. from my employer toward it.

Steam box is worthless to me and many other big families. The living room is a common area. One person playing a game there would mean the other 4 people would be off in other rooms doing something else. No one person would have enough time to spend alone in the living room. I don't have any consoles in the living room for that reason.

Damn these kids keep getting older.

Wish I had an iphone when I was 10. :fbm

10 is my threshold. By time my son is 9, i"m sure that will change. :fbm
