I thought this was funny. But yeah... I don't think I'd let little kids play it or even watch it.

I have a 65% off coupon for Cities in Motion 2 on steam and I am not quite sure where it came from. Free to a good home, if everyone on steam got one disregard this.

So I actually got my copy of GTAV in time to play it for a about 6 hours on Sunday.

Yay! The FUN is back in GTA!

GTAIV was a huge step back for me. I felt like that game was missing something HUGE but I could never put my finger on what that was exactly. Now I know...fun. That game took itself far too seriously and was too dark and depressing (kind of like the city it was set in).

GTAV is fookin' hilarious -- I laughed my ass off a bunch of times already, even in the story mode. I like the extra side missions too! Game play is really tightened up as well, though I'm having to adjust to the trigger throttle/brake. I played IV in "classic" control mode which mimicked the PS2's controls from III, VC, and SA. Classic mode is no longer an option.

I installed to a 16gig flash drive, and it's been running just fine so far with no rendering problems.

So, Valve is getting ready to release SteamOS which looks like it might entice a console gamer like me, who also enjoys a few of the niche games on Steam. I might actually get back into building a computer if it means I can build myself a gaming machine that I can use with my modest-screen TV, kicking back on my couch...

Oh, and by the way, I ended up buying GTA V, just because there were only a couple of copies left in the PX when I visited it last week, and I'm a sucker for something that seems in short supply. I finished Sleeping Dogs last night, and it was a good game, but it just didn't hold me like the GTA games, or Red Dead Redemption, or Skyrim, or so many of those other open-world types of games. Also, because GTA V was sitting on my coffee table mocking me, I think I rushed through Sleeping Dogs, just to get to GTA...

I don't know how this guy manages to drive while switching the camera all over the place. I can barely keep a car on the road just trying to glance behind me.




Oh gravity, thou art a heartless bitch.

Tried to drive the FJ cruiser thing up the huge mountain last night (in GTA). Got it about halfway up and the roads got too steep so I had to go on foot.

Got attacked and killed by a mountain lion!!!

Guess you need to be carrying firepower with you in the woods now and be extra alert for fast moving big cats!

Yea, be sure to clear your surroundings before doing the downward-facing dog.

For shits and giggles I'm going to try and get one of the steam box beta hardware pieces but they've got a list of things to qualify. I've got them all except 10 friends, so any 2 of you with steam accounts wanna help a gamer out?
