In Other News – 4 May 2016

May the fourth might be unofficial (or official?) Star Wars day, but for us it’s just another day for Geoff and Darryn to do silly photoshop. Yes, Geoff takes part even though he isn’t a Star Wars fan – he doesn’t need to like a franchise to enjoy the excuse to make fun images. Now excuse me while I continue the hunt for baby Jabba the Hutt cosplay.

In Other News: Nintendo hackers using indie games, Ubisoft searching for a cure and Kim Kardashian developer cuts jobs.

            For some reason I had Die Antwoord as a backtrack while reading this. Was torn between the awesome rhyme and terrible band.

    Also I noticed that recent reviews thing on Steam. That’s nifty. Now if Valve would stop being dictators, that’d be great.

      Oh but Steam! Steam is the nectar of the god of gaming, flowing from the loins of Gabe!

      Now if only Steam would allow me a peak at my friend’s wishlist, I MIGHT be able to get him that Best Man’s Gift I still owe him…

        Steam is the prison that has been built around us, keeping us locked in while indoctrinating us into submission.

        Everything is awesome, right?

          You can hide your profile from even friends. I have a friend who hides his so that people don’t buy him games. He hates it.

            We could be sharing the same friend… No wait. Does that sound wrong?

            Does he play Prem dota for a well known team?

            May 4, 2016 at 16:34

            Nope. He did sink 700 hours into The Division… Does that count?

            May 4, 2016 at 16:36

            Not really, but at least we know that we don’t share that friend. XD

            Not at all… we are all equal when it involves a drink at the end of the day.
