civ 5 is a really fun multiplayer if you and the group of people you are playing with have 8 or so hours to burn together,

otherwise magicka is a fun choice if somebody amongst the group of people you are playing with don't have NEET levels of spare time available to burn.

Is anyone interested in sharing steam accounts? I'd imagine everyone here is a trustworthy person. This saves money as you can test/try whatever games we all have.

Don't they make you activate the account for every new pc your access the account with, by inputting a code sent to the owners email address?
>> No. 6996 [Edit]
>>6995

Yeah.

I share an account with someone, but every time we log in we have to do that security code thing.

If you're ever "caught" they might yell at you. I've always had the plan to convince them it was my brother or sister sharing it, or some easy excuse like that.
>> No. 6997 [Edit]
>>6958 here

I should have listed some pros and cons with account sharing with my original post to give everyone a better understanding.

For security, someone can not take your account as there is no way for them to change your password or secret question withour your email. Even if by some chance they do get your email as long as you have bought a retail product for any of the games you own, you can contact customer support and they will require proof of a cd key from one of your games(you will have to write some ticket+numbers on it and take a picture with some camera, pic is an example of a retail cd key). I've gotten keylogged a few years ago(thanks, /a/) and the keylogger could only take my account since I didn't have access to anyone else's email. Though be sure to inform the people of whose account you logged into so they can change their password. You can have everyone sharing set their profile to private for extra security(though not everyone would like that). Anyway...

Pros:
-free games (well, as many as everyone has)
-you get closer to people (easy access to multiplayer games have created stronger friendships from my experience, even if the game isn't fun)
-you don't have to risk pirating a game which could contain viruses, keylogs or botnet(most of them have botnets)

Cons:
-people logging in while you are playing on that account which boots you off
-someone getting a keylogger which keylogs whoever else the person logs into
-someone wanting to dick around and use hacks which can get you vac-banned (you can't remove vac-ban status no matter what, even if you got hacked) vac-ban status is the inability to join vac protected servers (mostly used in valve games like cs, tf2 etc)
-risk of account getting suspended from sharing though I don't think they actually enforce this as I have shared with 20+ people from all over the world(US, EU, middle east, Japan)
-it's not your account, it doesn't "feel" yours and it may not feel fun playing on it (though this doesn't apply to everyone)
-though this hasn't happened to me, but the chance of someone screwing up your account for the "lulz" like deleting all your friends or putting cp on your display pic for example (I can't imagine anyone here doing that though!)

That's all I could think of now.

>>6996
That's called account armour, you can turn that off in the settings.

what is this steam community update steam keeps talking about? is anyone in the beta?

I think they changed how the compress avatars, because none of the ones I've uploaded seem to have the awful artifacting that I remember
>> No. 7151 [Edit]
>>7150
If the avatar isn't a perfect square then it will shrink the image to fit the frame to stop that. Cool, but it looks kind of stupid in the friends list.
>> No. 7152 [Edit]
>>7151
No, I mean even if you upload a 184x184 image there was still something weird with the way they process it that makes it's quality drop. now it seems much better

>> No. 7243 [Edit]
>>7242

Sure doesn't look like that to me, the games seem to sell better than ever. People like to say 'video games are dying' whenever they get the chance but the market seems to get bigger with each passing year. The fact that the only games that sell anymore are shooters is a completely different matter.

>>7232

>because zombies are totally still cool and not played out at all

Reading stuff like that makes me sigh every single time. People talk about some completely bullshit zombie 'boom' because two or so games with zombies got popular 5 or so years ago. Zombies were popular since like literally the 70s, both in cinema and in games. It's like people really think RE4 was the first Resident Evil game.
>> No. 7244 [Edit]
>>7243

The video game market is going to crash because companies are spending more and more money on less and less innovative games, with unrealistic expectations on how much they will sell. Companies like EA and THQ are knocking on death's door.

>People talk about some completely bullshit zombie 'boom'

It's not bullshit at all though? Zombies right now are like WW2 shooters were a few years ago: fucking everywhere. RE4 has nothing to do with it, nor do any other RE games
>> No. 7254 [Edit]
>>7244
>>7243

Resident Evil game don't even have zombies anymore do they?

I think the zombie boom is accurate though, a few big games have gotten zombie spinoffs such as red dead and yakuza. while zombie movies have been around for decades, zombie games seem to have really picked up after left 4 dead. hell it seems like recently the only reason why most people care about armaII is becuase of the dayZ mod for it. even minecraft has zombies.

Gaben confirmed the steam box from the kotaku article Gabe Newell: Living Room PCs Will Compete With Next-Gen Consoles

>Steam's Big Picture mode was just the first step: according to Valve boss Gabe Newell, you'll be able to buy a living-room-friendly PC package next year.

>Speaking to me during a brief interview on the red carpet at the VGAs last night, Newell said Valve's current goal was to figure out how to make PCs work better in the living room. He said the reaction to Steam's TV-friendly Big Picture interface has been "stronger than expected," and that their next step is to get Steam Linux out of beta and to get Big Picture on that operating system, which would give Valve more flexibility when developing their own hardware.

>He also expects companies to start selling PC packages for living rooms next year—setups that could consist of computers designed to be hooked up to your TV and run Steam right out of the gate. And yes, Newell said, they'd compete with next-gen consoles from companies like Microsoft and Sony.

"I think in general that most customers and most developers are gonna find that [the PC is] a better environment for them," Newell told me. "Cause they won't have to split the world into thinking about 'why are my friends in the living room, why are my video sources in the living room different from everyone else?' So in a sense we hopefully are gonna unify those environments."

>Newell said he's expecting a lot of different companies to release these types of packages

—"We'll do it but we also think other people will as well," he told me—and that Valve's hardware might not be as open-source or as malleable as your average computer.

"Well certainly our hardware will be a very controlled environment," he said. "If you want more flexibility, you can always buy a more general purpose PC. For people who want a more turnkey solution, that's what some people are really gonna want for their living room.

"The nice thing about a PC is a lot of different people can try out different solutions, and customers can find the ones that work best for them."

>I also asked Newell what sort of software they're working on these days. He wouldn't give specifics, but he did reiterate that they're working on their next-generation engine—which he said will work with next-generation consoles as well.

"Hopefully that's gonna give us some interesting opportunities on the game side," he said.

There are dyes to get everything a similar colour.
D3:RoS added a transmogify option that visually changes an item's appearance.

Got myself these yesterday. None of which were dailies, just cheap old games.
Divine Divinity - 0.99 EUR
Beyond Divinity - 0.99 EUR
Stronghold HD - 1.31 EUR
Stronghold Crusader HD - 2.63 EUR

I made it a principle some time ago to never buy games on sale that I didn't intend to play anytime soon. Unless of course they're objectively cheap as dirt.

I once had a conversation about buying games on steam sale. I bragged that I had X games in sum, and it only cost me Y $. My conversation partner responded: "that's still Y $ you've spent."

That's pretty much the point where I stopped buying games I wasn't 100% sure I wouldn't play in the near future.
