Rules and info.

Official group on Steam Better to join the Steam group instead of giving out Steam addresses when you join the group. The join system is set to auto for the group, so we can't see them.

Help us upgrade to a super group. Cake and beer promised but not guaranteed….

Tired of Chris trolling this section with Brony crap? Then make suggestions here anyways…

Wow I though this mod I'm about to talk about "The Revenge" which in it's moddb blog post there's only 2 one from last year and now so this project has been MIA for awhile but they have a lot of content for us but before I get into that lets get caught up with the story of the mod since again it's been a year...

(From Moddb page)

The Revenge is a first person game based on Half-Life universe. The main character is Anton Logov. He has to get out of the city in order to deliver something important for the Resistance Forces. It would seem like easy task - to come round Alliance roadblocks via proven trailways.But main character's path is far more complicated. Our game starts with the explosion of the special prison " Nova Prospekt " in the East - European city called " Bergshpitse ".

They have a lot of screenshots and since this is set within Half-Life 2 are either limited to get game assets and or keep the style within that universe. When I meant they had a lot of screenshot I mean it and the attention to detail in keeping in faith with the Half-Life universe is pretty good but I can see in a few screenshots that the lighting is overpowering the image but they stated it's in the alpha stages so it can change in the future. Then they talked about a demo release that is on the way and normally we don't do demos we review fully completed or close enough but this may have to be the reviewed just because they stated that the demo is going to be a prequel to The Revenge called "Antenna" and of course there are screenshots, info on the prequel but no release date for the demo.

Alright now for most of us in the US if you go to a Gamestop you might see a sign that shows you can pre-order a Steam Controller, Steam Link and or Steam Machine. So today Valve has announced that Gamestop (US), GAME (UK) and EB Games (Canada) stores will have a decatated section for Steam only...I know that doesn't really make any since that the only stuff that will be there is the hardware and gift cards but our lord Gaben...Gabe Newell had this to say...

"GameStop, GAME UK, and EB Games are leading retail destinations for core gamers and early adopters," said Gabe Newell of Valve. "Creating a 'store within a store' across North America and the UK is a significant win for getting the first generation of Steam Hardware products into gamers' hands."

Alright next there was an ESL One Dota 2 tournament at the New York City’s Madison Square Garden theater wow that's impressive. The return of Alchemist, a hero who hasn’t had a huge impact on the game’s pro scene for a while now. Since the 6.84 patch Normally, the way Aghanim’s Scepter is it supercharges their abilities. It’s the same effect when Alchemist has and uses the scepter, the only difference that was introduced in 6.84 is that he can cast it on his allies as well as himself. So Alchemist is one of the best hero's for gold farming quickly so the idea post-6.84, then, was that Alchemist players could potentially outfit their entire team with crazy aghanim’s buffs Or at the very least since Aghanim’s is relatively expensive (4200 gold), Alchemist could strategically apply it to his teammates that he knows would use it most effectively. There are videos in the blog post showing off what I'm trying to explain but for you Dota fans does this interest you?

Ok first off before we get started with this blog I have talked with my higher up aka "admins" and I have scrapped the Valve goes to Cons contest do to no submission have been filed even when I extend the time no one was interested. So I scrapped the contest and started a new one as of now it's called the "OBFC Halloween contest" that's right anything and everything scary also from our first contest we had done a while back we had to cut fanfic just because of time limitations but we are opening all art styles including fan fiction so everyone. So get your guel gool...get your fright on for Halloween.

OBFC Halloween Contest-

Alright now for mod news we have new blog post from the Half-Rats team and they were talking about the final touch up with continue quality assurance on the project. The the Moddb user "Qwertyus" has been helping out clean up some bugs, exploits, weapons and ammunition much more fitting and subtitles for the mod. There are a few screenshots from new main character model, starting progress of the sequel of Half-Rats.

Ok lastly in mod news the first week of October newsletter for Above the Catacombs is live and it's talking about new music tracks by user GreenPepper for alpha 1.0 which is 64% done as of this blog post. Then they go into basic layout on the first map and talking about the nightmare on detail with map design. Lastly on the blog post that there was a steam poll they made on the side of the website showing "Should this modification be available on Steam?" and it had Yes(but full release), Yes(but early access) and No. They stated that if they do go through Steam it would be a nightmare since it would take forever but if it does come on Steam it will be released as free.

PC Gamer had made this blog post about "Learning to communicate more effectively in Dota 2" Now I have stated before I'm not that great at MOBA's at all but for anyone that is interested in this here is a guide on Dota language.

Oh boy I have to bring this up again that Steam customer service is still broken and I did a blog post about it on March of this year and from the Kotaku blog post nothing much has changed and Erik Johnson Valve's business development authority had this to state now...

“We think customers are right. When they say our support’s bad, our initial reaction isn’t to say, ‘No, it’s actually good. Look at all of this.’ It’s to say that, no, they’re probably right, because they usually are when it comes to this kind of thing. We hear those complaints, and that’s gonna be a big focus for us throughout the year. We have a lot of work to do there. We have to do better.”

Then he also added this...

“We need to build customer support directly into Steam. We need to understand what’s the most efficient way to solve customer problems. Right now we’re in a state where we’re doing a bunch of technical work on thinking through how does a support issue get raised, who has to see it, how do refunds get issued within Steam—we’ve done a poor job on all of that up to this date.”

The rest of the blog post shows screenshots users against steam support and that stuff.
