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…

Alright a there's a mod I have been watching for a while it's called Lunar Descent it's an action adventure mod and they just posted up an alpha tease statistics on the mod and there is a lot to read so I'll just link up the post.

Lastly I'm not going to do a mini review of Half-Life 2 update mod because it's mainly just patches, stablizing and overhaul on the lighting system but as it stands I do recommend getting it plus the gameplay is left 100% alone but you do need Half-Life 2 to run it since it's still a mod but all of it is through Steam plus there is a brochure on the steam page about the mod, faq and PC tech info as well.

:bulletred:Pirates, Vikings, and Knights II mini review:bulletred:

(From Steam page)

Pirates, Vikings, and Knights II pits three teams against each other in a struggle for wealth, power and total domination. Whether using the Gunpowder Keg to clear out a territory full of enemies, or the Javelin to pin your dead foes to a wall, you'll find this game both hilarious and exhilarating.

It’s pretty much a multiplayer mod set within teams of Pirates, Vikings and Knights killing each other in these modes. Booty (CTF), Territory (King of the hill), Trinket Wars (Tubro Deathmatch with special power ups), Last Team Standing (Arena), Objective Push and Team Deathmatch. So there a variety of modes which is awesome. Now since it’s Pirates, Vikings and Knights weapons will be period pieces meaning swords, muskets, powered kegs, etc and it’s in real-time so if you fire your musket you better have good aim because reloading takes a lot of time. But the only problem I had with this is mainly just not a lot of people are playing it that’s the problem.

Now the graphics and sound department is all original which is awesome but the graphics are average like Half-Life 2 deathmatch quality which is not bad but not Counter-Strike: Global Offensive or Left 4 Dead 2 quality. This also includes the sounds mainly the voice acting is way over the top once you get killed and they talk in there team speech and its meh and can be overhauled in the future.

I personally would like everyone to at least try this out since one it’s free and has mod support so you can mod within a mod…also it has achievements. I did say that the quality and sound needs to be improved but the real major problem is that this is really fun and not that many people play it which sucks. So go out there you Pirates, Vikings and Knights TO BATTLE I SAY THEE…I guess how they say it right?

(quick news)

PC Gamer just posted up that Valve has fixed the Steam Discovery system which was released last summer but this happened in the quote...

"Prior to the Discovery Update, products only showed up to customers under specific circumstances; being manually featured by Valve admins, being present on top sellers/new release queues, or via direct search results," Valve explained in the post. "As a result of that limitation, we were able to highlight only a small selection of broadly popular titles that we knew would appeal to the majority of customers. That is no longer the case."

So the original system could only show ten to 20 games per day to each user that has been changed to more than 4000 unique titles are shown every day. Product page views across all of Steam have increased by 30 percent since the Discovery Update was implemented, 75 percent of which comes by way of the Discovery Queue. In fact, 16 percent of all product page views now originate from the Discovery Queue. Steam Tags have seen a threefold increase in clicks since the update was made as well from PC Gamer blog post. Lastly Valve had wrote this to PC Gamer...

"To look at smaller titles, we dug into revenue for all apps outside of the 500 top sellers. Within that subset, total revenue has increased 18 percent and daily earnings per app have increased by five percent, even with 400+ new apps joining the store since the Discovery Update."

Valve says the Steam "Discovery Update" is working PC Gamer blog post-…

Hello Orange-Box-Group,

Anyway I was wondering if you like to spread your message to the members if they would like to join my contest and I'm going to say I do have insane prizes this year and I thought the members would like to hear about it. However if you want to know the prizes it's STEAM gift cards. :D

Thanks for adding me to the group. I hope i submitted to the right folder(the Portal Gauntlet in Cosplay and Crafts), because it is a physical item. Though it does look like something rendered.
