I need to lose weight. This sounds like an acceptable dieting system.


Well...you won't loose much calories either. But give it a try.

So, i ended up not buying FM2014. My overall haul:

Burnout Paradise
The Walking Dead S1
Shadowrun Returns
Steamworld Dig
Call of Juarez: Gunslinger
Sleeping Dogs
Castle Crashers

I don't want to post mine, as it's got some embarrassing crap in there, but it comes to about £80 :(

I bought Civ5 and The Stanley Parable.

Civ5 seems exactly the same as the others, but with weird rules around units and cities being able to defend themselves.

TSP I know almost nothing about, but people seem to like it round these parts. I suspect I will need to plug in my speakers for that one.

You will need to hear TSP, you can't play it in silence.

So the same people who were outraged by Hatred (temporarily) being pulled from Greenlight are now complaining about Pregnancy being put up on the platform.

Remember, freedom of expression is only important when it's something you like.

Ok, same group of people. GGers, AKA whiny pissbabies who think the feminazi illuminati are infiltrating vidya to instigate cultural Marxism.

I'm hardly the target audience for either, but hatred seemed like a massive shit stain designed for "edgy" teenagers. Pregnancy is, at worst from the paragraph I've read, a propaganda machine for whatever viewpoint is writing it. At best something useful written by someone with experience in the matter...

It could still wildly slant one over the other, though.

It could, yes. Have you watched it?

Also Call of Duty wildly slants towards glorification of war, but that's not a problem.

Yes. "at worst"

There are some people I wouldn't trust to be able to create an even vaguely balanced view even if they tried.

Did I read it right the other day? Steam machines coming in July? Probably.

But since I've got a PC already I'm more interested in the wacky controller.

So here it is again. This time "typing".

Aye, the controller itself has my interest on the assumption you can use it to play any game that doesn't currently support control pads. The numbers of times I find myself hunched over my keyboard playing a Steam game that would work fine with a controller but the dev just hasn't implemented it is too damn high.

I remain utterly and completely unconvinced by these things, and the controller makes no difference to my feelings on the matter whatsoever.

Price wise they're no better value than a Windows PC in EXACTLY THE SAME CASE (except with far less functionality because, no Windows), and it's not like wireless keyboards, mice, and 360 controllers are Star Trek-esque technology that PC nerds have been waiting for Gabe to gape out of his majestic and wonderfully bearded arsehole for the last few years.

Console peeps already have consoles, PC peeps who like PCs in console-style form-factors already have them too. The 'box under the telly' slot is already filled.

I'm calling fail on these things before they've even been launched. I got that OnLive shit right, so I'm allowed a miss on this one, but I'm reasonably confident about going two nil with these nonsense dickfaces.

I got Onlive right too.

Steam box? I really don't know why they're bothering.

I call death on Nvidia's new console too.

I didn't say it wasn't great.

I said it was an amazing technical accomplishment that no one really wanted and consequently would be a commercial failure. The textbook definition of an answer to a question that nobody asked.

It's all there in the original thread, for example I said this in June 2010 - viewtopic.php?p=424688#p424688
