    Steam - UI Overhaul Coming Soon

    Oh that reminds me that GOG has announced its own unified launcher. They promise cross-client friends list and chat, and any stats from each respective client are also pulled in. There's more info, also concerning privacy, through the link. And an option to sign up for the beta.

    Steam - UI Overhaul Coming Soon

    To clarify what Dudley says, you can add any program (be it a game or Chrome or VLC) on your PC to Steam but that's just a shortcut. You're still launching the same program. So if that game needs a disc, it'll still need a disc. And obviously Steam won't do shit with it in terms of stats or updates, it's literally just a shortcut to a game outside Steam. What we were talking about is activating a game on Steam. Sometimes the developer or publisher of an old game went to the trouble to make old cd keys or even GFWL keys, into valid Steam keys. ie, a key that you enter in Steam to add that game to your account. In that case you don't need the original anymore, because the Steam version is now part of your account, your Steam Library. Which includes updates through Steam, stats, etc.

    Giant Bomb Fan Club

    Came here to post exactly that. But you forgot something: not only does he interrupt Brad in the middle of his story, just moments before they announced that there would be a five minute segment with spoilers so listeners could fast forward. So not only does he interrupt the conversation to spend more than a minute saying nothing but. "uuh what's that guy called uuuh you know, that guy, uuuh what's he called", that minute takes away from those five spoiler minutes! I'm surprised Brad didn't kick him out of the podcast room right then and there. In other news, the GB East content is thankfully still more than worth it. Their latest mailbag with the Mario 8ball is hilarious

    Xbox Game Pass

    I agree! For lots of people it's fine though so that's why I mentioned it. And I can't see a handheld Xbox ever happening when Microsoft is focused on streaming - "play it on your existing handhelds or smart devices!" would probably be their rationale.

    Xbox Game Pass

    That's kinda what they want to go towards with Xbox not being a single console but a universal platform. Your Xbox One controller already works perfectly on whatever Android device you have (RetroArch, Steam Link) so we'll probably be able to stream Xbox games to our phones, tablets, or Switch (), or whatever
  7. Excited but I just hope it's not as difficult as Sekiro

    The Watchtower - A thread for all comics

    I loved going to comic shops in the late eighties and during the nineties, and browsing their selection of old Hulk comics. Looking for a bargain, or for those few hard to find ones. Whenever I found myself in a different city for whatever reason, I always looked for the local comic shop to see what hidden gems they might have. Internet has spoiled that, apart from reading digitally I can simply order everything online. Browsing an online webshop and placing and order doesn't have any of the charm of digging through dusty cardboard boxes and stumbling across the first appearance of The Leader. I miss that. Most of my Hulk collection I can tell you where I bought that particular issue. Aaah, nostalgia. See also: music. /oldman

    The Watchtower - A thread for all comics

    Like I said, I have no space for physical comics nowadays so I got rid of everything years back. Only thing I kept is my near complete collection of the second volume of The Incredible Hulk, that ran from Incredible Hulk 102 (1968) to Incredible Hulk 474 (1999). At a guess it's about 80/90% complete. I also have a few issues of Tales to Astonish that have the Hulk as its regular feature before the series was renamed to Incredible Hulk with issue 102. Tales to Astonish 62 from 1964 is the oldest comic I have. I started collecting Hulk comics when I was around 8, switched from Dutch translations to the originals when I was 12 or 13. I was willing to give everything else away, but I couldn't part with my Hulk collection. So, to answer @womblingfree's question - these are all bagged and carded inside cardboard boxes. Like Charlie says, paperbacks - especially hardcovers - are a lot handier, nicer, and tidier. If I had the space (and didn't go 100% digital) I would stick to paperbacks too, single issues have a lot of charm but they're just not practical. I love the paperback collections @cassidy and @Charliemouse posted on the previous page. That has a charm that digital will never have, although digital is a life saver for people like me who just want to read and enjoy without sacrificing space.

    PlayStation Classic

    Modding isn't piracy, is it? As long as those instructions don't tell you to download games from somewhere - or worse, where to download them from exactly - shouldn't it be fine?
  13. Whatever they choose to do, however long all the other Fox stuff takes to integrate, just bring in Dr. Doom asap and I'm happy. Can you imagine Dr. Doom finally done right on the big screen? But I also think that on the one hand multiverse stuff can seem like a handy fresh new start, but on the other hand I suspect the concept of multiverses could cause way more confusion among the wider audience than having a long running established continuity. As lots of comics have proven, a good writer only needs a few words to establish what the reader needs to know to enjoy the current story.

    We're also in the run-up to the next generation of consoles, so that probably doesn't help either. On the bright side: time to clear dat massive backlog! I got games for decades

    RⒶGE 2 - Explosions by Avalanche Studios

    Huh, that's interesting. Avalanche went from trademark floaty but serviceable sandbox combat to id Software level combat in one game. Must have been some real good consulting! At the moment Trails in the Sky occupies all my gaming attention, but I do love me q good in-game shotgun so I'll definitely return to this. Only played a few hours, but I had fun with it - no shotgun yet tho.
