    I don't think I ever actually edited the wiki. I did contribute some in-game tips, hunted down some bugs, and suggested a few features that got implemented. Arcen are very engaged with their...

    Probably my favorite game of all time - the wiki is a useful resource, as are the forums, but I'm always happy to help out if you end up having any specific questions.

    Fortunately, after the patch, your multiplayer progress no longer really matters for single player purposes. The thresholds got lowered to the point where they were easily attained in SP only, and...

    Finished Gravity Ghost. It's a cute, light puzzle game but seriously, what is it with indie games and childhood trauma?

    It can be modded out, but it feels like cheating because the game is balanced around resource decay. The problem is, said resource decay depends on the passage of real-world time, so if you step away...

    Does the YOSE version still have that "time progresses when you're out of game, so all the resources you worked to collect are depleted by the next time you play" thing going on? That killed the...

    I've been sorting through the bottomless rubbish bin that is my Humble account, having a look at all the assorted bundle leftovers that fall outside my normal gaming genres/tastes to see what there...

    Personally I like them because, among other things, it allws me to give money to the games I'm actually getting. By default, Humble splits your contribution over all games, even the ones not in your...

    Those have been there forever. As in, those have literally been there since the earliest bundles. Occasionally you'll get a bundle that doesn't have them (usually the single-publisher bundles) but...

    Yup. Click on "Choose where your money goes" and you can customize exactly that. It's one of the nicest things about Humble, IMO.

    Here's the default split, but you can adjust as desired:

    Picked it up for 80 Days and zeroed out the sliders for the other games. I'll scrape the cards out of Worms and Her Story but doubt I'll ever play them.

    Yup. It's still Borderlands, and still fun with friends, but it's the only one of the series I didn't replay in NG+ and wouldn't ever go back to.




    I very much mean the design. Suffice it to...

    You're aware that you can roll back to earlier versions via Properties -> Betas off the game menu in Steam, yes? Though I've no idea whether that plays nicely with multiplayer or not.

    Yes, that's what I meant by being reductive and unfair. It's not really legitimate to impugn anyone's motivations here, though the practical outcome is unfortunate from my perspective.

    That sounds interesting enough to warrant $1, though I've been so bad of late about accumulating bundle fluff. Ah well, it's summer, so what the hell?

    Yes, I'm being extremely reductive and it's not really fair to anyone involved. Still, the situation bums me out, because the net effect really is that support for a game I like (and would like to...

    80 Days is the point of interest there for me, though I don't know much about it. Any comments?

    TPS is indeed the weakest of the Borderlands games, though it is MOAR BORDERLANDS if that's what...

    I don't recall there being any issues with Rise of Nations at release, but then it is the best RTS of all time so I suppose that's consistent.

    I'll give you credit for at least going back and replaying it, I think for most people it's really just blind nostalgia. Personally, I didn't even think MOO2 was the best 4X space game of its time...
