Steam and ID Games

More Great News from Steam, just as I am trying to figure out what to spend my money on(The Ship, Half-Life 2, etc. etc.) Steam announced that they have just added a sh*tload of the Legendary ID Games line up. These include:
Commander Keen, Episodes 1 through 5- $4.95
Wolfenstein 3D- $4.95
Spear of Destiny- $4.95
Return to Castle Wolfenstein- $17.95
Ultimate DOOM- $9.95
DOOM II- $9.95
Master Levels for DOOM II- $9.95
Final DOOM- $9.95
DOOM3- $19.95
DOOM3: Resurrection of Evil- $19.95
QUAKE- $9.95
QUAKE Mission Pack 1: Scourge of Armagon- $4.95
QUAKE Mission Pack 2: Dissolution of Eternity- $4.95
QUAKE II- $9.95
QUAKE II Mission Pack: The Reckoning- $4.95
QUAKE II Mission Pack: Ground Zero- $4.95
QUAKE III Arena- $17.95
QUAKE III: Team Arena- $17.95
Heretic- $4.95
Heretic: Shadow of the Serpent Riders- $4.95
HeXen- $4.95
HeXen: Deathkings of the Dark Citadel- $4.95
HeXen II- $4.95
Being somewhat of a fan of the old simple games such as Doom and Return to Castle Wolfenstein, I will almost certainly be looking into this. And if your like me, your probably seeing several games out of this list that you would like. Luckily, Steam is offering some pretty nice Package deals:
The QUAKE Collection: All the QUAKE Games- $29.65
Wolf Pack: All the Wolfenstein Games- $17.95
DOOM Pack Complete: All the DOOM Games- $35.95
Heretic+HeXen Collection:- $9.95

Even though I am not interested in all of these I might be getting the Super ID Package which includes every single game listed above for $62.95. Just figured I would let everyone know, cause I know there are a lot of people that still get a wet spot in their pants when thinking of DOOM, QUAKE, and Wolfenstein. And since I use Steam much more now a days it is just nice to see the selection increase and promising that some major companies have started releasing their titles through it.

Ahh, the good old days   read

If you read my profile you will see that I am looking forward to Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures, and of course Pirates of the Burning Sea. Luckily for me, both of them scored huge with the staff of at E3 with Pirates of the Burning Sea winning Editor's Choice of Best MMO and Age of Conan becoming a finalist. I have been very patient in the wait for Pirates of the Burning Sea which was set for release in 2006, but luckily it looks as though it was worth the wait. What I have seen from E3 of the game looks AMAZING!! If you’re an mmo type of guy (or gal) and you haven't looked into it yet I recommend you do so immediately. First off, who hasn't dreamt of playing a pirate, getting to sail around in the Caribbean plundering, burning, and killing through out. Or as I plan to do, hunt down these scallywags and bring them to justice. In all seriousness though the features in Pirates of the Burning Sea are going to be cutting edge. From the Sword fighting which is set to feature several different sword techniques and various upgrades to your character(hp,strength,etc.), ship-to-ship combat, and the supply-chain economy which is similar to that of Eve: Online. What interests me the most though, is the PvP which is shaping up to be pretty badass, the whole idea of earning "unrest points" for your nation by delivering supplies to rebels and attacking foreign merchants among other things is very intriguing. I will be getting this game as soon as it hits the shelves, so look for me in the British Navy if you do get it:P

Steam and Toy Headquarters Team Up

Well this is my first blog so don't flame me too bad :)

Some great news just came out from Steam a week ago regarding a new partnership with Toy Headquarters, more famously known as THQ. These new releases will include games from THQ's Relic Enterainment, Gas Powered Games, and Pandemic. With this new partnership some great new games become availabale through Steam, the games that are already up for purchase through Steam are:
Company of Heroes-$29.95 (Relic Entertainment)
Titan Quest-$19.95 (Lore Entertainment)
Titan Quest: Immortal Throne-$19.95 (Lore Entertainment)
Full Spectrum Warrior-$9.95 (Pandemic)
Full Spectrum Warrior: Ten Hammers-$9.95 (Pandemic)

Other games that are set to be released soon on Steam are:
Supreme Commander (Gas Powered Games)
S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl (GSC Game World)
Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War Gold Edition (Relic Entertainment)
Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War: Dark Crusade (Relic Entertainment)

Personally I think this is great that the selection from Steam is expanding even further. I have lately really found it easier to get games from Steam, saves me both the trip to the store, no CD-Key, and no disc to keep track of. Best of all, at no extra cost!!   read
