Deep underground, a man is taken prisoner by goblins. Unaware of who he is, or where he is, he befriends another captive and works to escape the dungeon and explore the vast labyrinth that houses friends and horrific foes alike. This is the start of Arx Fatalis, a wonderfully fresh dungeon crawler that never seemed to get the recognition it deserved.
Need more storage space for your games on Steam? External hard drives are a great way to go! However, most cheaply made USB cables will go very slow and make your install times take forever. I found a solution to this not too long ago on Amazon, the Sabrent USB 3.0 to Sata/IDE Hard Drive Adapter. If you do not have USB 3.0 (the blue USB ports on your computer, this will not apply to you.)
The Sabrent Adapter (the adapter from now on) can transfer at speeds of 5Gbps, supports up to 4TB hard drives, and even comes with a power supply that connects to a power outlet to power the drive rather than taking power from USB. The adapter supports Sata, IDE 2.5/3.5, and even supports connecting disc drives. The base of it has the three connectors with two LEDs that show the status of the hard drive.
This quick video I made shows how it works and shows how fast it can go! If you don’t want to watch it there’s also a few screenshots.
Do you ever wish or wonder if your life was being narrated? That someone was telling everyone what you did or will do? If you woke up one day to suddenly hear a disembodied voice telling you what to do, would you listen? The Stanley Parable, a PC game released in 2013 by Galactic Café, takes this line of thought and runs with it.
You are Stanley, a normal guy working in a small office; following instructions relayed through your computer. Everything is fine until one day when something strange happens and suddenly there are no instructions and your co-workers have all disappeared. As the game starts you are introduced to a ‘helpful’ narrator who will outline your next course of action. Whether or not you follow his exact instructions is completely up to you.
