Gaming Thread New Year's Eve Eve Edition

Afternoon Morons and Ettes! I hope you are enjoying a pleasant weekend with your friends and family.

This being the last Gaming thread of the Year, Game of the Year discussions are fine. Try really hard not to spoil people. For The Walking Dead, that ends next week. With all the GOTY discussion it's been really fascinating to go through everyone's different choices and how it impacted what was My 2012 GOTY.

So yea, GOTY discussions, but be nice about Spoilers.

I've really been enjoying the coverage and podcasts from Giant Bomb this year. Go check out thier show parody videos which were pretty funny. Also if you are a podcaster, all 5 are very good. Fair warning, the videos spoil the podcasts (not terribly, but you know the winners if you watch the vids)

More Gaming Shiz Below the fold


Steam is once again attempting to send me to the Poor house. Great deals abound. Personally I think the THQ bundle is a great deal and you can capitalize on them almost being Bankrupt. I've been playing a grip of Saints Row: The Third, which is like GTA with some bubblegum and popcorn. Pretty fun.

I also gifted some Civ5 DLC to my father (he loves that game), picked up an extra copy of The Walking Dead when it was 50% off to gift it to someone at a later point, and now I'm avoiding the Steam Store. But Deals abound! Go get some stuff on sale!


Eve Stuff:

This is a map of the NullSec Sovereignty map. They also Annotate the wars so you kinda know what is going on.

Here's an Interesting Article from Forbes about Eve thriving in a FTP Market

One of the more hilarious kind of Meta Game things is This. There has been so much crap talked by some of those guys it's pretty unbelievable. There's going to be some quality trolling in the Eve Podcasting Community. Be sure and check out Crossing Zebras and Lost in Eve When they get new episodes up. The amount of trolling is gonna be great. I know the CZ guys are making a Rundle Soundboard.

Decent Eve 2012 Year in Review

For all things Not Eve. Yea. GOTY Stuff. Avoiding going broke on Steam. That sums up my week. Go get FTL and TWD if you haven't.

I'm in the market for a laptop to take on my trip to Iceland for Fanfest. Doesn't nec. have to be a gaming machine as my main focus is on battery life. If you have some suggestions, post those up.

If you have something you'd like to see posted on the weekly Gaming thread send it to aoshqgaming at gmail dot com

So yea. Grab some deals on games, and lets talk 2012 GOTY and what we are looking forward to in 2013. It's going to be an interesting year. If you haven't played Frog Fractions go do that right now. Just Google it.
