Posted on r/gaming: If i buy the retail version of skyrim, will i be able to activate it on steam?
Stay out of the scary places for now. Try fighting aboveground things first… fiends or or radscorpions and such, so you get used to paying attention to looking at your radar (lower left corner) to be aware of nearby enemies. Also you might want to increase your perception stat so that enemies show on the radar earlier.
I am tempted to unsubscribe to all other gaming related feeds and just leave this one.
Posted on r/gaming: When you first saw Ryu/Ken do the hurricane kick, what did you think he was saying?
We always referred to it as the katkatnougat (back before the internet existed)
Posted on r/gaming: Fallout: New Vegas mods and savegames question
If I install a mod and save my game with the mod enabled, then I later disable or uninstall it, will my save game no longer work?
It's better IMHO
No sale yet, but apparently today's daily deal ends in 264 hours
Posted on r/gaming: (Casual gaming question) My mom has finished all of Angry Birds on the PC and is asking if I could recommend any games for her, looking for suggestions
Hopefully something cheap (if not free). Also, I can't give her anything that has time pressure (i.e. Plants vs Zombies) because she gets hypertensive sometimes when she tried playing stuff like Bejeweled or Text Twist.
There goes 5 minutes I'll never get back
It's a point-and-click adventure game? How good is it, and how come I never heard of it before? (Big fan of the genre, i.e. LucasArts-style games, the Sierra quest games, etc)
I didn't make it to the end of the video.
Is this really how people pronounce it? Spelling out the “N”, “E” and “S”? I've always pronounced it as “Esness” (and logically, “Esness Nine Ex”)
I already have Mount and Blade, but it's still a couple of games from the top of my to-play list (still haven't finished going through everything I bought at the last Steam sale :p) What about Fire and Sword? Should I get it? There's a 10% off preorders at the moment.
Posted on r/gaming: King's Bounty question
I have 3 King's Bounty games that I apparently got back during the Steam holiday sales. Legend, Crossroads and Armored Princess. Just starting to play them now, surprisingly fun. What order should I play them in?
What is ARG?
Woohoo me! Reddit id = steam username :D
Here you go:\nhttp://imgur.com/ITVSv
Just something I randomly drew today :D
I passed by a gaming store on my way home today, and the guy behind the counter mentioned that they had a new game called “Pokemon: Black Ops”
Cheers, my steam id is the same as my reddit username :D
Pretty good read
I delay purchasing new games until there's a GOTY with all the DLC
Posted on r/gaming: Fallout New Vegas: Is it still buggy/glitchy?
I didn't bother purchasing it before because of all the reported bugs, etc. Hs it gotten better?
Guy1: What's Superman's real name?
Guy2: Clark Kent?
Guy1: No, it's Efren
Guy2: What? Where'd you get that?
Guy1: In Superman the Movie, when he catches Lois Lane falling from the Daily Planet she says to him “Who are you?” and he replies “I'm Efren”
Why are there people crying foul? Isn't it optional to activate?
What if they didn't bundle DLC separately and just straight-up sold the game for a higher price (and with a slightly later release date), would you prefer it? Or if the game was released with the same price but no additional DLC at all? Or the game is released with no DLC but six months later a new full version of the game is released with slightly more content that could have been released as DLC but instead you now have to buy a full game again?
Personally, I find that DLC is a good idea as it allows customers to pick and choose which content they want. I'm not going to bitch about it, I don't have to buy the DLC if I don't want to. In fact for longer games like RPGs I just wait for the GOTY to come out later.
Also, the phrase “cutting content out of the game” shows misunderstanding of how software development in general works. Like all other software development gigs, game development is largely constrained by schedules and real-world budget and resource constraints. And most of the time they're going to fall short of those schedules and have to decide what features to cut so they can make it on time. Having the option of releasing them as DLC creates less pressure on the team and creates an opportunity for content that would otherwise have been cut or saved for a larger expansion disc to be made available. And please don't take at face value the rantings that because 90% of a DLC's content is already on the disc that it should have been included at release - you haven't considered the other 90% yet.
Games gives you carrots to chase all the time (quests, getting to the end of the level, mission objectives), achievements are just an additional layer of that for people who like having goals.

Oh well, free game is free!
The medium(Normal) computer isn't very good as a gauge of your abilities as it isn't very difficult at all.
I'm not a particularly good MvC3 player, but here's some ideas: Are you able to block correctly? Do you use assists to create openings? If you have trouble doing hypers on the fly, have you tried doing them in training? Completing a few missions?
Actually I think Wolverine can do Berserker Barrage X (QCF + AA) off most light or medium attacks, so you should be able to practice like Light into Medium into down-forward + Light + Medium at least. I find this easier on an arcade stick instead of a controller though due to the button layout.
Aeris dies at the end of disk one
What game is this?
You need to find work with more nerdy gamers :p I think as many as 60% of people where I work are gamers of some level.
Nice drawings btw :D
Really? Did you get that from the multiple game of the year awards it garnered? :p
Dunno whether bnet is “shitty” or not but I've personally logged more than 500 games online, and I'm no pro just a casual player mostly. Hundreds of games are ongoing at any one time on bnet, I'm not sure under what definition of shitty that qualifies.
Tldr sc2 is an awesome game
It is a characteristic of games from that era. There's a whole lot of trial and error involved, especially back in the days when we didn't have the internet for walkthroughs :p
Don't do it.
Posted on r/gaming: Just started playing NWN2, any tips? (No spoilers!)
For SNES RPGs look for any of the following:
- Chrono Trigger
- Secret of Mana
- Seiken Densetsu 3
- Dragon Quest VI
BTTF seems expensive though. Does that price already cover all 5 episodes?
Grotesque Tactics is the daily indie sale today: http://store.steampowered.com/app/46450/
Any feedback on this game?
I'm not one to troll :)
I'm not that much of an FPS player so I never really got into the Half-Life series.
Their naming convention is weird with HL2E1 and HL2E2, I initially thought they were like parts of HL2 or something.
It's the definition of “expert” in the post that's throwing me off. By that definition, the only people who can be considered experts have to be playing FPS, RPGs, Platformers, and every other genre that has one of the “must play” video games.
Not everyone plays FPS.
Not everyone plays RPGs.
I guess Super Mario Bros. is a given though.
This topic is a download-fest! I will upvote everyone here!
A newlywed couple moves into their new house. One day the husband comes home from work and his wife says, “Honey, you know, in the upstairs bathroom one of the pipes is leaking, could you fix it?” The husband says, “What do I look like, Mr. Plumber?” A few days go by, and he comes home from work and his wife says, “Honey, the car won't start. I think it needs a new battery. Could you change it for me?” He says: “What do I look like, Mr. Goodwrench?” Another few days go by, and it's raining pretty hard. The wife finds a leak in the roof. She says, “Honey, there's a leak on the roof! Can you please fix it?” He says, “What do I look like, Bob Vila?” The next day the husband comes home, and the roof is fixed. So is the plumbing. So is the car. He asks his wife what happened. “Oh, I had a handyman come in and fix them,” she says. “Great! How much is that going to cost me?” he snarls. Wife says: “Nothing. He said he'd do it for free if I either baked him a cake or slept with him.” “Uh, well, what kind of cake did you make?” asks the husband. “What do I look like,” she says, “Betty Crocker?”
What if I don't really play FPS games in general? The only one I really play is L4D2
So, if tomorrow will be repeats, these are the last day of new sales?
