Note to self: Let glitches be glitches and leave them alone! As some of you know I'm replaying the first Bioshock and every time I ran down this set of stairs there would be a big daddy just standing, facing a random wall at the bottom of the stairs and a little sister wayyyy away from him in another room just staring at nothing. At first I didn't think much of it but after the third time I ran past it I realized something was up. I ran over to the little sister and usually when you get too close to them they start to yell and the big daddy comes running after them. Well nope, nothing happened! So I decided to experiment by setting her on fire. Bad idea! She didn't move at all but the screaming came and I turned around and the big daddy was still facing the wall but the moaning sound was coming from him. Then all of a sudden he jumped to another place as I started running and when I turned around the little sister was gone and the big daddy just appeared in front of me and then I was dead. Okay so when you die and resurrect, the big daddy is usually off your case until you start pissing him off again. Well I'm running down a different set of stairs and all of a sudden he appears out of no where and kills me again. I kept trying to run but he kept coming after me and this time I was no where near him or a little sister!

Well, I guess I only have one multi-player game so it's not much of a choice with me.

Just bought Killing Floor. It looks creepy as hell.

What the hell?! My NEW macbook pro will not run the new Civ V expansion because it doesn't support any intel onboard video cards. Why would they do that?

Sure, this isn't a gaming rig, but most games support those cards because they are super common. Civ V and existing expansions run just peachy even on high/max settings, so why release an expansion and ban half your existing players from running it ( I don't have a super high end macbook, but I also don't have the lowest model)? I would understand if this were Civ 6, but this is just an expansion adding gameplay features, new civs, and some buildings.

Seems like an oversight that might get patched in later.

Trine 2 with two other people is absolutely ridiculous.

Actually, from googling to see if other mac people are annoyed, it looks like Steam just made a mistake. The developer site specifically lists Intel HD 4000 as an exception to the "no Intel" support rule.

Sorry for my freakout--you all know how I love my Civ! I've been looking forward to this expansion. It has an Africa campaign, we get the Zulu back, and it has increased culture and trade routes.

Brian, do you think it will go on sale, or is the 10% pre-order as good as it gets?

I could barely breathe because I was laughing so hard. I was useless with my pretty boxes and terrible jumping skills. MBM was the one who suggested Killing Floor so I hope she plans on playing that with me. Preferably on a day when I don't have to sleep because it looks terrifying!

Until the winter sale, I can't predict a sale. I'm certain it won't be on sale during the summer sale.

Killing Floor is six player, so we can give it a whirl tomorrow/later today! I played it for the first time during Halloween which meant a special Big Bad and he really creeped me out.

That's what I meant. I'm not going to wait MONTHS for this thing! That would require patience and stuff. Plus, during the summer, I can sit around and play Civ for 6 hours without guilt that I should be doing something else like planning a lesson or grading papers.

The entire Sonic Collection has hit Steam. I am awful at Sonic but a BEAST at Dr. Robotnik so, bring it on!

That's weird since it's not changing graphic cards and G&K civ 5 has direct x 9 versions and direct x 10 11 versions separated away from each to help various systems play the game.

they hopefully patch this because day one of it's release I'm playing brave new world.

and I'd also play civ with a person, lavawitch. steam name is Chiatroll

I'll add you! I think my steam name is MollyParrot.

I just got invited to a beta for one of my favorite games. It's already out for Pc, but the Mac version isn't. This should be fun. I missed doing game betas after I stopped building my own systems.

I should point out that Left 4 Dead 2 comes with all of Left 4 Dead 1. The entirety of it is in there. There's no good reason to buy Left 4 Dead 1.

I know this comment is a week old, but this is EXACTLY how my partner and I are with this game. He gave me a copy of Portal 2 on Steam, and we haven't played it yet... We've played it on a console (forget which) before, so I imagine it will go about the same.
