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…

We we have are far share of indie games that are total junk on Steam and get removed forcefully from the community. But in this case this is not the way to do it the game that was removed from Steam from the former developer Mike Maulbeck was called "Paranautical Activity" one of the indie games that will be on a Halloween theme highlight section. He released the game today under finished but when it was put up it was on early access and not normal release. So Mike like any other raging person goes on twitter and rants so we all know what is going to happen but I will post the quote that got the game removed from Steam.

"I am going to kill gabe newell. He is going to die."

Then Maulbeck deleted the tweet and his account but the damage was already been done. He did stated in a Polygon got in talks with Valve and this was the statement Doug Lombardi from Valve...

"Yes, we have removed the game's sales page and ceased relations with the developer after he threatened to kill one of our employees"

Then Maulbeck had this to say with Polygon after that statement...

"I have since obviously replied to them saying that I didn't mean what I said and pleaded that they consider the monopoly they have on the PC market before totally writing us off," Maulbeck said in an email to Polygon, "but let's be real. If they took the game off the store, they're fuckin sure about their decision. There's probably nothing to be done."

My god this ranks right up their will former indie dev Phil Fish creator of FEZ and don't get me started on that.

-Blade Symphony
-Company of Heroes 2
-Don't Starve
-Grid 2
-Injustice: Gods Among Us

Blade Symphony indie mini review by DevinShadowV-

Ok now to the hard one and I can't believe there trying to do it this way...Ok everyone wants Half-Life 3 no question about it but the fact that and pressuring Valve for a very long time to give a released date or conform that HL3 is even alive. Well an actual Ad marketing agency "McKee Wallwork & Co" and they have started a crowd-funding campaign for "We Want Half-Life 3" and here are the tiers.

:bulletblack:We Want Half-Life 3 campaign tiers:bulletblack:

(From indiegogo page)

Tier 1: AdWord Campaign - $3,000
You know when you're browsing Google and in your search results page you see a nice little advertisement on the side? Well, we want to do that, but target all 300 employees of Valve. So that way, every time an employee googles themselves (c'mon, we know that they do) they would be presented with an AdWord. What would it say, you ask? Simple. "WE WANT HALF-LIFE 3."  

Tier 2: Mobile Billboard - $9,000
In addition to the Adword campaign, if we reach this goal, we will rent out a mobile billboard (those trucks with the giant billboards that drive around a city), only we'll plaster it with our propaganda and besiege Valve HQ in Bellevue, Washington until their white flag is raised. Or, at least until the end of the day when our driver's shift is over.

Tier 3: Gabe Newell Look-a-Likes - $45,000
You know what's better than one Gabe...? A bunch of Gabe Newells besieging Valve's doorstep wearing "We Want HL3" t-shirts. Who knows, maybe they will sneak into a strategic meeting and release Half-Life 3 themselves.

This might sound a bit pricy, but lets be real. That's a lot of mouths to feed and cotton to buy. And don’t forget, we’ll still be creating the Adword campaign and mobile billboard as well. For those of you that live outside the greater Seattle are, don’t worry. We will film the mayhem in all its glory.

Final Tier 4: Most Epic Concert EVER - $150,000
Now, here's the fun one. If we raise enough money, not only will we complete every other goal we've listed, but most importantly, we'll pack a venue in Seattle with all of the Half-Life fans that can make it and throw the biggest Half-Life concert possible. With some of the biggest names in video game music, this is guaranteed to be so much fun that your headcrab will fall off.

Having a bunch of Half-Life fans together in one place would be awesome, but what's a rocking party without the likes of Gabe Newell, Chet Faliszek, Erik Wolpaw, and all the other employees of Valve? We will invite every employee of Valve to our event and, in person, make it completely clear that WE WANT HALF-LIFE 3.

So what do we get in return for supporting this campaign?...Well a personalized letter from the Ad team, Pin, Good Karma, T-Shirt, Personalized AdWord and JJ Lewis Original Song...Really all that hard work for that? I'm personally not going to help fund this project but that leads into a new question.

Are you going to support this indie campaign for Half-Life 3?

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.
DevinShadowV Featured By Owner May 1, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
No problem actually I like seeing actual items and not CG or drawings sometimes.
KayleetheDragacron Featured By Owner May 1, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist

Radical! If I remember, it might be all uploaded sometime today.
OolonColluphid Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2014
Only going to stick around until I'm not needed. Mod reviews will be back as soon as I can. Although you don't need to really wait for me or Devin to post reviews. People can post their own to the journal unless dA changed things a while back.
Also the way he and I do it are just guidelines to simplify the process.
Xroswarsolider Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2014
Huge thank you for adding 'Good Luck Orange Team' to your gallery. I must say it's absolutely fantastic to see a group deeply interested in the valve games. It may shock Gabe Newell to find that I'm more into their single player games. :P How I will miss them...
