Valve is really s*** at pr. Not a word of reaction from them.

I doubt anyone high enough up to comment is available. It is Christmas day.

High up people usually have to give up holidays for things like this at some places. One downside to having that role, heh

By the same measure who rolls out a new caching routine- supposedly what went wrong since they have now made a statement- on Christmas Day? OK, so it isn't like xbox/playstation where kids get given one for christmas and it's the busiest day of the year for their internet infrastructure as everyone sets them up but it still seems a very odd time to be tinkering with such stuff even so. You've got both people working on 'improvements' on Christmas Day and rolling out changes, surely there would be better days for it let alone a quick way to roll back any stuff ups.

 

Amateur hour, and not just the PR aspects.

no RPGs I care about or like came out

Oh right, Sunless Sea. Sorry for bringing this topic up *again*, but I'd slam my head against a wall if I didn't mention it. Stellar and nontraditional writing, almost completely alien setting to dip into and a game cheerfully defying many principles of modern game design, putting worldbuilding, storytelling and exploration ahead of such petty concerns as player convenience.

I actually tried Sunless Sea, but playing it appeared to crash my PC and make my operating system unbootable after like fifteen minutes. It appeared to have rewritten some registry values involving my Windows 7 "user" folder (C:\Users\User Folder) - specifically, it set the directory location back to the default (the previously mentioned location), whereas I had externalized it to another hard drive years prior and never run into any issues until immediately after trying to play Sunless Sea. I'm not sure if it would happen again, but I don't really have any interest in finding out, either.

That guy was actually worth watching.  Could it be that I've finally found a youtube person I don't hate?

I was struggling to understand ths until I noticed you are from Finland. And having been educated solely by mkreku in this respect I am convinced that Finland essentially IS the wh40k universe.

I do not really consider Bill Nye a youtube personality. I grew up with his scoence lessons.

Technomancer has some new screenshots, looks like an improvement on Mars: War Logs: http://www.thetechnomancer-game.com/

I hope it turns out well.  I enjoyed Mars: War Logs and I thought Bound by Flame was an improvement, so hopefully Technomancer continues that trend.

I sometimes think about going back and finishing it (I got to the final boss accidentally my first playthrough and never finished because I was annoyed at missing all the optional stuff) but BS like time limits to get a character's ultimate weapon have kept me from doing so. At least I'd know to keep all the starter weapons around this time.

 

Truth be told, I think the only Final Fantasy I'd be willing to re-buy is the updated version of Final Fantasy Tactics, just because I'd love to have Agrias' job class available to everyone.

yes, and you're in denial

Yeah, 10 was good, but 9 was the last great one that still had the overworld map and such.

I liked the last Final Fantasy for the PS2.  Might have been 12?  It just fit my preferences.
