My problem stems from the insinuation that this causes real life behaviours that mimic the game.
Are either of the articles you posted actually saying that though? Seems to me like they're just pointing out that they find the mode creepy (as some in this thread have said) and that it resembles harassment.
Y'know I thought I kept a close enough watch on the forums to know when people asked for stuff but apparently I missed 3 days worth of requests! I'll get on sending all those out so keep an eye on your PMs if you asked for something recently!
@zedman, @rahf: Someone already asked for Rocket League way before both of you posted so I'm afraid I've got nothing for ya!
I had been hoarding a bunch of extra steam keys with the intent to use them as donation incentives for the most recent Giant Bomb Community Endurance Run... but nobody ended up donating for them, so I'm just going to give them all away! I've got 50 keys at the moment and if you want one here's what you need to do!
The interview I did for GBCER6 is up on YouTube! I talked to Alex Zandra Van Chestein/HavocHQ (who also did the Paxamania poster!). We talk about making and playing games, PAX and we even did a quick playthrough of a game she's working on called One Last Cup. Here it is, I hope it gets featured so more people can check it out!!!
I have a couple of last minute things you can donate towards!
Somewhere around 50 Steam games from this list are up for grabs! If you want a chance to win then you must: donate at least $1, mention what game they want in the comment field and leave a form of contact (twitter handle/Steam id/GB Username or something!). One game per donation, so if you want more than one game then you should donate multiple times. Sorry about that!
Flywrench Colorless Run
If we raise $3,000 by Sunday (before 8PM EST) then I will play through the entirety of Flywrench in a colorless palette (all white on a black background).
You can also donate towards a callsign for me to use during the playthrough (8 character maximum, suggestion with the highest donation total by the deadline will be used), custom text that can be put into the game (10 slots maximum, custom text can be any length, please keep it clean!) and anyone that donates towards Flywrench will get their names put into the end credits of the game!
Just did Alex's trials and he seems like he'll be fun to play. Gonna head into training mode with him for a bit and try to find out some stuff.
There's definitely some stuff you have to level up to unlock in the shop. Colors seems to become available for puchase every 10 levels, I'm level 30-something with Mika and can buy up to 4 extra colors. There are also character specific profile designs but I'm not sure what level you unlock those at. The only one I can buy is for Mika.
It also seems like you can't unlock costumes for characters you have at level zero? It seems like I can only buy stuff for the characters I've played which are; Mika, Birdie, Karin, Dhalsim, F.A.N.G., Laura, Necalli and Alex.
