    Deus Ex

    Yeah, I liked IW too. Another one of the "nowhere near as bad as the internet says it is" crowd. Or the "Bioshock 2 coefficient".

    What games did you complete? 2019 Edition

    I'll try and remember to keep this complete this year. No promises, though. 09/01 Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain (PC): I could have put this into the abandoned pile as I haven't completed every mission, but with 76 hours on the clock I'm choosing to call this a completion. I have 5 or 6 of the main missions to complete and it was these, that come at the end, that made me stop with the game. Up to that point the gameplay, if not the story or some characters, was excellent. I will never get bored tranqing some surprised guard in his stupid face before sending him into the sky attached to some balloons. 09/01 Carpe Diem (PC): I've been looking or smaller experiences that you can complete in one sitting to play inbetween the 'main' games I have on the go (currently Yakuza 0, Final Fantasy 7 (I've never beaten the Weapons and This Is The Run) and Torchlight 2) and Steam is great for small, experimental things that are short and free. This is on Steam, it's free and takes maybe 10-15 minutes. It's a short visual novel with a relatively simple hook, so I won't say anything about the story but will say it's worth a look for the time and cost investment, and I was pleasantly surprised. 12/01 Disturbed (PC): Another of the 'free on Steam' gang and I completed this in an hour or two. Remember those 'Choose Your Own Adventure' books that had stark choices to make (To go East, Turn to page 132) and instant death was only ever a wrong choice away? This is one of those. You're a farmer who finds his land overtaken by a corruption and has to try find the cause. In classic fantasy tradition you'll need a sword guarded by a ghost and an glowing orb and quick death lurks around every corner. What makes this less frustrating than that sounds is that it's been expertly made, has full controller support (even for quick save and quick load and the other, modern, PC conveniences) and the art and writing are both pretty good, if a little sparse (although I think that's by design). I did grab a guide to mop up the last few endings near the end, but it's perfectly possible to complete and see every ending without help. Another pleasant surprise.

    Steam

    So in the Steam News Feed for Bayonetta, a Bayonetta Dev posted a picture of a sheep sticking out its tongue with the caption, "Baa". Some are speculating that this is a reveal of Catherine being ported to PC. Given that they teased the port of Vanquish to PC though an update to PC Bayonetta, there is form for this sort of thing. First Atlus game on PC? Bodes well for Persona? Edited

    Manga

    Funnily enough I'm living in Bangkok for work for a bit and I've just been doing some Christmas shopping at Terminal 21, a mainstream shopping centre, and there's a store in there almost totally commited to One Piece merchandise which even for this town is an oddity. I've seen on the app they have Death Note as well so I'll be hitting that but aside from One Piece and Death Note are some of the other really long running series like Bleach and Dragon Ball worth a look? Any slice of life or sports series that stand out? I want to try a varied range of stuff.

    Manga

    I’ve just signed up for the Shonen Jump subscription as well. Not read anything from them before I think but £2 a month is kind of insane and worth a punt. So as a manga virgin (I read Akira years ago but that’s about it) what should I start with for Shonen stuff?

    Last game that you couldn't put down?

    Binding of Isaac. I have 232 hours in Afterbirth on Steam. Plus 50 or 60 into both the original on Steam and Rebirth on PS4. So I've spent money on the same game three times, in addition to the crazy time I've spent. It's just the perfect 'run' game. If I'm going to sit down for a couple of hours of games, I'll start with an Isaac run before moving into whatever "big" game I'm playing, and I've been doing that for 4 years. The combination of relatively simplistic gameplay (don't get hit, basically) coupled with the clever meta-game systems (item synergies, secret room locations, interlocking systems) means every run is different and I'm still, after 300+ hours, learning things about this stupid, cartoonish, dark Christianity themed roguelike. I've often thought about uninstalling it, so I can try and make some inroads into the backlog, that ever growing list of other great games I own, but I just can't do it.

    Antiquarian increase stack size for loot. For instance, a stack of gold will top out at 1750, but with an Antiquarian in your party it increases to 2500. I think it also allows specific curios to drop which are other items that sell for gold, that won't appear without an antiquarian.

    NHL discussion thread

    The Maple Leafs, Blackhawks game played on Sunday. If you haven't seen it find a way to watch it. One of most amazing endings to a hockey game in a long time.

    Best short games

    In the same $1 tier is Simulacra which is a "lost phone" horror type game (and given it's Halloween month the best time to play) and clocks in around 4-5 hours and I enjoyed it despite the sometimes ropey acting. So get this bundle is I guess what we're saying. For $1.

    There's a tool that can make Steam catagories for your library automatically according to How Long To Beat (and other things like genre, year of release, steam user reviews and others). Called Depressurizer, and free, instructions are here.
  12. Steam doesn't make a noise when you earn an achievement. Therefore, they are dead to me. Although, some on Steam clearly do care. Look at this shit. 2,880 Achivements! All piss easy to get apparently, and that's pretty much the whole reason for the game's existence.

    Steam

    From the Steam client highlight Bad Rats (for instance) and then look at Support on the right under the Links heading. You have to be in details view, not the icons view. One of the options there is to permanently remove the item from your account.

    Update on the above. I contacted Bethesda support to see if they would at least give me the reason for the key being revoked and their response was So they revoked a key purchased from a reputable third party seller (again, from Amazon EU SARL, not a third party seller, the key was in my Amazon digital library) and can do so eight months after purchase and can cite 'payment problems' as the reason. Seems our digital libraries aren't as secure as we thought.

    Steam

    Get a pop up on Steam telling me, "You have an account alert on your Steam account". Open it and it seems that Prey (2017) has been removed from my account because: "Well, don't buy games from G2A, you jerk", you're all saying but I bought this key new from Amazon EU SARL. With a giftcard. Eight months ago (which hardly seems recent). I contacted Amazon and they said they couldn't find anything wrong with the purchase and while they couldn't issue a replacement key as they come direct from the developers they did issue an immediate refund (by which they mean credit note) for the purchase. This seems really odd to me. Is there any way to find out who revoked the key and why, especially after all this time? Would Steam support offer any answers or just say, 'none of our business, guv' because the purchase doesn't even show up in my history as it was a third party sale. Amazon were great to be fair but this is a bit worrying if your games can be removed months after the purchase for vague 'payment problems' reasons, especially when the retailer is as trustworthy as Amazon.
