Hero Academy was put out on Steam today for $4.99 which includes The Council Team and the Team Fortress 2 Team. Additional Teams are $4.99 each (there's also a bundle of EVERYTHING for $15.99). It's a 1-on-1 Tactics game which has been out on iOS devices for quite some time. Hero Academy features cross platform play between PC and iOS (with purchases for one applying to the other via shared Robot Entertainment Account). Steam page is here http://store.steampowered.com/app/209270/

So far it's quite enjoyable. It has asynchronous play so turns are sent back and forth between players (meaning games go as quickly or slowly as you and your opponent desire). There's a bit of TCG thing going on in that each Team is like a Deck. You have 6 units or bonuses in your "Hand" during gameplay. The objective is to either destroy your opponent's crystals or all of their units. Games can be set up via random matchmaking, Steam friend list or Twitter account.

If anyone has picked it up and wants to play a few games feel free to add me on Steam

I had the recap of Episode 2 say I 'had' the brother shoot the raving woman - compared to shooting her myself? I wasn't sure, seems to me 2/3rd of the outcomes end with him shooting her and her being shot no matter what.

It might also be a bit of a puzzle, like Deus Ex style, say the right thing in the right order to avoid X - perhaps there's a combo that stops anyone from killing Larry, though at the time it seemed like no matter what I picked someone would have killed him.

I'm willing to reserve judgement until I play through a couple times and see what changes and shifts.

Refuse because it's what I wanted the whole time.

They spent at least 150 hours establishing that the Reapers are simply unbeatable. They are larger and beyond anything we could ever hope to understand (let's ignore Star Brat for just a second). Defeat with the hope of helping the next cycle (or the one after that or the one after that) to finally win against the Reapers is the most realistic and fitting ending possible. I'm beyond pleased that it was included.

I think the only changes occur during and after the conversation with the Catalyst, but I'm not sure

There's ONE thing that happens in London that's new. It happens during the run to the beam. If you have a save in London, that's a great place to start. If you use the Auto-Save at the beam you'll miss that scene.

So that's what's going on? My friend finally convinced me to buy it on Monday night. We've been trying to figure out why I can play HC and Join his games but we can't clear the Skeleton King if I'm in game and I'm blocked from trading. I didn't see anything about a delay mentioned besides 'New Players have to wait 3 days to access public chat channels'. I'm thinking I should call them instead of waiting on an e-mail reply.

Gender roles and social norms are huge issues and, unfortunately, the most vocal on the subjects are often those who are the most rigid, most careless, and least reasonable.

And people screaming that there are no issues to discuss have their head buried in the sand. It's pretty appalling how many people simple can't or won't see that some things are very real, and just because they don't apply to you doesn't make them any less real. Thanks for having some common sense. (this is not a sarcastic reply)

Still playing the base game, but since I nabbed it on the cheap I can't bring myself to pay double for the expansion. C'mon Steam sale!!!

Try clearing you Cache. It gets filled up w/ patches for games and bogs the system down. Cleaning it out generally improves loadtimes and stops random crashes.
