Slender: The Arrival

Slender: The Arrival out soon on Steam with new content

Building on The Eight Pages

Although something tells me it'll never truly go away, the Slenderman craze seems to have died down a little bit recently. And that has me feeling slightly more receptive to Slenderman: The Arrival's impending Steam release. It's happening on October 28, 2013 through Majesco's indie publishing label Midnight City. Oculus Rift is supported, if you're up for it.

I missed out on the original release back in March, and I'd be a total liar if I said Steam distribution had no impact on my purchasing decision. The bulk of my games are hooked in there, so yes, it sure does. This version is also supposed to have "extended content."

For console players, The Arrival is looking at a Q1 2014 release for unspecified platforms.

I routinely listen to the Dustforce soundtrack every week. Incredible sounds. [youtube][/youtube]

Steam rejected the DP refund. Meh, It's been a long time between when I bought and played it, don't care anymore, heh. Decided to play more MGS4 on PS3 and start replaying Rayman Origins on PC. Fun games that actually work.

Being an asshole, watching this Star Citizen debacle unfold and seeing Cloud Imperium's meltdown about the whole ordeal is incredibly entertaining. Even if the allegations ARE false, CI's official statement comes off as wonderfully bitter and petty.

Alright. Playing off of the Avatar question, why did you choose your username?

I tried playing Deadly Premonition on Steam from my backlog today and it's a GODAWFUL pc port. I bought it forever ago but I requested a refund. If anything I don't want it in my library....

Why is it that Sundays always feel so lazy? I always tell myself I'm going to get things done and then...well....

So, I plan on using my GameStop Power-Up Rewards points (yes) to buy all the eventual P4DAN DLC. Even though the practices are very suspect. I am so not made of stone. Moreso blubber and Dr. Pepper.

Having a puppy and trying to play legend of grimrock 2 somewhere the puppy normally doesn't get to hang out is a futile effort.

Shafts of light emanated from Robo Panda Z's eyes, illuminating the intricately engraved obelisks looming impossibly above him. A whispered voice spoke from the obelisk. Do you pay too much for your Internet? Comcast. Like you have a choice.

I miss Kill la Kill - I think mostly because it was so damn entertaining to have a bunch of people drawling, "Nuuuuuuuuudiiiiiiiist Beeeeeeeeeeeaaaach" at each other.
