Yo, I crashed some castles.

Over the course of the Steam Sale I picked up a 4-pack of Castle Crasher for me, my bro, and our girlfriends to play. I figured it would be a fun little beat-em-up with a quirky sense of humour we could all enjoy. A nice family experience and all that.

Then me and Kass decided to boot up the game on her laptop "just to test it out."

Barbarian King? Dead. Sock Monster? Dead. Forest Creep? Dead. Ice-Wizard, Necro-Wizard, Jerk-Wizard? All dead, dead, and "ARGH FOOKING GET DED KID".

We ended up blowing through the entire game on our own. Oops. I guess our power duo of a crazy magical ice-chucking Blue-Knight and a super beefy Red-Knight swinging around the biggest club she could find was too much for the game to handle, we crashed our way through stage after stage like a frozen wrecking ball.

What a fantastic game. I know it's been out forever and every single other person on the planet has played through it by now, but DAMN. Really fun.

So sorry my brother, there's always Torchlight 2 I suppose.



Speaking of Steam, I've been really getting into it the past few days! Steam, as a thing.

After tinkering around in the post-summer-sale-haze with some of the features I've ignored for awhile, I've found all sorts of interesting things to do on Steam. Mainly, I took a little time over the past week to transfer my Rogue Legacy and Dark Souls guides over to the Steam community hub/guide service and I'm super happy with I did.

If you've never used Steam guides either as a user or an author, I can't recommend them enough. Super easy to navigate to and browse. A great editor for writing and formatting; very easy to use and a lot less janky than I was expecting.

It's been super fulfilling to watch the hit counter and ratings grow on them over the last few days. Makes me kind of wish Dtoid blogs had some other privately viewable metrics on them other than faps/comments. It's nice to know that people are actually reading (or at least skimming) these guides that I spent a good chunk of time on.

I know we have a lot of talented bloggers around here that have written some amazing guides. I encourage you to take an hour or two to repost them on Steam.



After endlessly mocking the concept, I ended up getting a little into the Steam card thing. Nothing like Jordan of course, but I did let a few games idle here and there and pumped up my steam level a bit. I like the idea of "showcases" on your profile where you can tip your hat to your favourite game, or post up a list of your favourite guides on the service. It's all kind of crazy.

Valve, they've found a way to turn playing games into a game. They'll bury us all.

* - Holy shit, this is the best photolog ever. Lucha 4eva.

* - Get yourself some sound tracks! Jinx has some great resources for freebies here, but even if you have to pay a lot of them are worth it. Max Payne 3 for example had an AMAZING seedy synth sound.

* - Tinker. Good taste brother. I'm super new to DOTA, but Tinker and his crazy game breaking abilities have let me steam roll other newbies with ease. Long live spam ultimates of robot-death-squads and safe teleports back to base. Could they have made a better hero for me?

A - Brother has some strong feelings about Dead Space.

A - TheKodu doesn't believe Microsoft when they say they'll treat indies better.

S - Halo skates past Euro-censorship laws like a champ, all thanks to the Nerf gun weapons and motocross gear looking too ridiculous for the grey faces to care about.

A - People are awful on the Internet. AKone wants to know why.

A - Boobs. The age old debate between pandering and tasteful.

I - True Facts about the ZombieNinja.

T - The best GTA game will always be finding an online date in IV and murdering them in the park with a knife. What? Why you looking at me like that?

T - Wow, another DmC review lamenting the 30FPS and scruffy Dante. How original. Didn't stop it from getting an arbitrary 8/10 though.

? - WOAH! Getting a real hinky feeling from this blog. Looks like spam, tells you to mess with your router settings, and the bio link goes to a "flash fixer" install of dubious intent. Can any tech savvy people confirm if this is on the level?

? - Is this a repost Glowbear, or am I going nuts?

R - ZombieePanda wants some game recommendations. Silly Panda, like you need anything but Dark Souls and Rogue Legacy.

? - It's a development blog! But I have no idea what a "grid simulator" is. I imagine this is the prison inside of a Game Genie.
