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…

(slow news day and one piece of news I missed yesterday)

First up a lot of Steam users are created a new Steam group that is dedicated to the either lost for forgotten games that have mutliplayer by creating events for those dead games that either have or is mutliplayer only and there are two statements from the group which sums up what I stated...

“Let’s face it: we all have those games in our library. Old gems with amazing multiplayer or co-op modes that seriously deserve some love and loyal players, but have sadly become dead, deserted, and forgotten. Those games vainly wait for better times to come.”

   “The Dead MP Games Resurrection Group is a group of Steam players dedicated to reviving our dead multiplayer games if even for one night. Events can be created by group members for any dead multiplayer game on Steam that we support! Let’s get some of these games active again!”

Oh just a quick update I'm going to delay the review of Portal Stories Mel just because of personal and job life is taking a little tole on me but it will happen and I'm actually enjoying the mod so that is a good sign.

We have a two part from Above the Catacombs mod just a weekly update for the last week in June just talking about the progress working towards alpha 1.0 including new screenshots. Then the second part is the July release schedule with two newsletters July 10th and 24th then on July 31st will be the next update and will it be alpha 1.0 I don't know since the June blog post they stated this...

(from the blog post)

"For those wondering what exactly is planned with "Alpha 1", the intention of Alpha 1 is to have at least 10 minutes of gameplay, since a few of the assets used in the Niagara Apartments level will be carried on into other levels - development for that particular area has taken quite a bit of time."

Next and sadly a new mod is going to be underground called "The Unknown: Emergence" has stated that the project got too big so and they explain it like this...

(from the blog post)

So, to kind of sum it up, taking on such an ambitious and large project like this as a small team doesn't really work. Although, that doesn't mean we're stopping this forever, it just means we need to wait on it until we can understand as a team what we are doing. So, we're gonna archive the mod until 2016 comes around, and then we'll be back in business and finally meeting our goals and ambitions with this project.

Well looks like were going to have to wait until Valve I know Source 2 is out but come on get it out of Dota 2 so we can have Source 2 mods/indie titles.

Well this sucks I was just informed by Gamezone that Valve updated the FAQ on trade scamming that you can get restored will not happen anymore and here is the updated info from the FAQ...

"Our community assigns an item a value that is at least partially determined by that item's scarcity" the FAQ reads. "If more copies of the item are added to the economy through inventory rollbacks, the value of every other instance of that item would be reduced."

Well this does make since but we all know that hack/scam attack happened after the holidays and a lot of us players including me some of our items were stolen through a hack. So this kind of case is more just poor judgement I guess what do you think?

Steam no longer restoring items lost to trade scams GameZone blog post-…

Alright now for something silly in TF2 now I would normally put this in the mod news section but I wanted to put this in it's own section for this reason. Now most TF2 players including me have played fan created custom modes prophunt, surf and Saxton Hale modes just to name a few. Then what about a mode that was recreated from a recently released game from Nintendo...That's right DrLilRobot and his team has recreated Splatoon's Turf War mode and the team is calling it Splat Fortress. The mode itself where you have to splat ink everywhere and I mean everywhere even covering up the other teams ink so you can score. If you have played Splatoon before you can turn into a squid and swim in your own ink which also reloads your ammo in this mode you can. But this mode is in it's alpha stages so it has a long way to go but DrLilRobot has put up a video on the progress of the playable game mode.

Sorry to disturb, but I want to contribute this artwork made by me to your group.
The only trouble is that this artwork I made is a crossover, and thus I am a little
bit worried on what gallery folder should I contribute this artwork to. Any help
would be greatly appreciated.

Just a reminder, I can't post the requested image in this comment because
I do not own a DeviantArt Premium Membership.

no problem were always open plus if you do the member version the submission on our end goes faster and journal support but that is your choice.

Okay, thanks for the reply. Perhaps I should become a member of
your group for the benefit of the doubt.
