When it was held on stage the first thing that I thought was that it looked relatively small for a new console. Smaller than the 360 and PS3 launch boxes for sure. Will this one include an external power brick?

Machinarium is PS3 only unfortunately, not cross buy with Vita.

The other posters are all correct.

If it's not showing in your library I suggest restarting Steam. Sometimes new items that weren't purchased through the client need that to show up in the library. You can also always go to the game's store page in the client and launch/install it from there if you don't want to restart it.

This is going to end well.

It can't end worse than it started.

Follow the money.

Chem trails.

It's no coincidence that every Polygon staff members lives in a town or city where the water is fluoridated.

@frenden: No pro mate, and I think I found a solution. Worked in Beyond Pod, try it in your app.

And tell me if it worked or not!

I can confirm that this works in Pocket Casts.

I came in here because I knew people had posted how to pass through the user/pass previously for video RSS feeds and was going to adapt it to the podcast feed. Thanks for saving me a couple of minutes by giving me the exact URL.

I use Lastpass. The browser extensions are free. It syncs to the cloud (and is well encrypted). It has a web interface for machines that you can't install the extension on. It's free.

If you want mobile support it's $12/year.

I've been using it for a couple of years. It's been great and I've never had an issue. Give the browser version a shot for free.

Yeah it sounds nice...Can you login to it and have it show you all your passwords? Because if you couldn't, how could I login to apps like Facebook, Twitter, etc., or login to games that require accounts?

Yep. You go to lastpass.com, login, and you have access to your entire password database. You can view them and copy/paste. You can access the website for free on mobile as well. The $12/yr premium access for the app is more about convenience.

I don't even think about passwords anymore. When I register for a site I hit the generate button which creates and stores a new password. When I open up a site it automatically fills in my password (if I choose).

edit: And to respond to your edit, I use a really long and complicated pass phrase for my lastpass password. It's something that would take a very long time to crack and be impossible for someone to guess based on knowing me. It's essentially a nonsense phrase with non-English slang. It's very easy for me to remember and quickly type in. I couldn't remember a different one for every site, and most sites don't even support a password like that.

If you want mobile support it's $12/year. You can still use your mobile browser to access the website and retrieve passwords for free. The mobile app just makes things easier.

What I think is weird is all of the people on Internet forums who distrust every professional reviewer for some reason but when they ask for an opinion on a game, and I give mine, they take it and thank me for it. They don't know me, they don't know my biases, they don't know my motivations, they don't know my tastes, and they don't know my history. Professional reviewers have a public body of work that tells you that stuff. Still, to them, my opinion is somehow more valuable even though for all they know I'm some dick on the internet who just wants to screw with them.
