DC Gamer Club / Alien Swarm: Reactive Drop
« on: April 26, 2017, 03:32 PM »
Alien Swarm just got a big upgrade. It has been re-released as Alien Swarm: Reactive Drop with more campaigns, more multiplayer options (including co-op bots to help fill out your party), Steam Workshop support for community-made campaigns and mods, and more.

Alien Swarm: Reactive Drop extends Alien Swarm, bringing more of everything: maps, aliens, game modes, guns... And most importantly Steam Workshop support.

  • Tactical co-op for up to 8 players with a top-down perspective
  • Steam Workshop support for community maps and challenges
  • New co-operative campaigns
  • Challenges: Modifications of the game, just like Mutations in Left 4 Dead 2
  • PvP: Deathmatch, Gun Game, Instagib, and Team Deathmatch
  • Singleplayer: Play with improved bots on all our official maps
  • New Aliens: HL2 antlion guards and more
  • New Weapons: Desert Eagle, Devastator, and Combat Rifle, with more to come

And it's still completely free!

I had a lot of fun playing Alien Swarm with other DC members, but it always seemed unfairly hard if you couldn't get a full party of 4 players. But now with the addition of bots, it's very doable to complete the original campaign with even just two competent players.

I haven't tried any of the new campaigns yet, but I'm looking forward to doing so. Hopefully with folks from DC again. :Thmbsup:

DC Gamer Club / StarCraft + Brood War expansion now free
« on: April 19, 2017, 01:32 PM »
Blizzard is gearing up to release a remastered edition of the original StarCraft. And in preparation for that big release later this year, they've released the original for free.

StarCraft®: Remastered upgrades the essential sci-fi strategy experience from beginning to end. Welcome back to the original game and its award-winning expansion, StarCraft: Brood War.

We’ve remastered our units, buildings, and environments, improved game audio, and broadened our supported resolutions. Illustrated interludes bring the struggles and victories of heroes like Artanis, Fenix, Tassadar, Raynor and Kerrigan to life like never before. Most importantly, the strategy gameplay that StarCraft perfected years ago remains unchanged.

Get ready for Remastered. The original StarCraft is free to download right now!

Have I Been Pwned is a website/service that allows you to check to see if your email address (or other info) can be found within the database(s) of various sites that have had data breaches over the years. It was mentioned earlier on this site in this thread.

But consider this a friendly reminder/suggestion to occasionally check and see which sites have mishandled your data.

So, I've tried repeatedly to get this update to install. But it just keeps failing, reverting the changes, and then immediately when I get back into Windows 10 it downloads the update again and tells me I need to restart to finish installing it.

I even tried manually downloading the update and installing it. It, too, told me I needed to reboot to finish installing it. When I did that, it did the usual thing and after a while it said it failed to install and reverted the changes.

I've searched and found other people asking around how to get this update to install, many times without a response. But even in the cases where I did see a response, nowhere have I found anyone saying they were able to resolve the situation.

Anyone here have any experience getting stubborn updates to take? Normally I'd just let a failed update sit there and not install, but this results in Windows 10 nagging me to restart my computer and threatening to do it for me "outside of active hours" if I don't take care of it myself. Halp!
