My controller won't stop moving left

by Smartdino101. Posted on Aug 10, 2020

My xbox one s controller seems to always like to go left when ever I try to go into menus and make it impossible to select something. I want to know if there is a way to fix this, or if I have to buy a new controller.

Steam needs to have an automatic "abandoned" tag for early access games.

by PartTimeCrazy. Posted on Aug 10, 2020

The number of games that are still in "early access" that haven't been updated for years is ridiculous. If games were automatically flagged as "abandoned" after 1 year of zero updates, that would be great, but then Valve wouldn't get their cut on shitty games so I'm guessing it would never happen but one can dream, right?

After 4k hours in Dota it is time to say goodbye... and give away my Arcanas.

by ChatterBaits. Posted on Aug 10, 2020

EDIT: BIG FAT EDIT! So far 3 Arcanas have reached their new homes. The Jugg, PA and Rubick ones. The people I chose just had stories that resonated with me. They stood out, either they made me lol or they just reminded me of my own Dota time.

I have messaged people for the rest but they havent responded yet. I guess some are in crazy timezones by comparison to me and are sleeping.

Althought my initial message highlighted alot of the bad in dota there is alot of good and your stories show that. Thanks for sharing. I literally read everyone but I couldnt respond to all of them. I mean there was 450+ this morning when I woke up.

So, after sinking far too much time into this game it is time to say goodbye. I am a 30 year old man. I work far too much making games to be spending anymore time playing games, especially this game.

There are a few reasons for this decision, the first and probably most important is being to play roles you dont enjoy to earn tokens for roles you do enjoy. Pretty awful system. Secondly, in 100 games, I can pick out maybe 2 or 3 where I actually felt I had fun. The community is far too toxic. People are far too angry and at this stage in my life, I really just have no interest in dealing with it. The world is angry enough already. Lastly, after disconnecting from my first game in I dont know how many games I have a 5 match low priority pool thing that I just cant be bothered with to be honest.

So, the important part! Why am I making this post!? I mean, why not just quit and not say anything, no one would know any better, no one would even care. Well... not too long ago I felt that my love of Dota was waning and began selling alot of my cosmetics that I have gathered over the years. My steam balance reached a nice 4 figure sum. But I didn't realise it actually meant nothing, its useless, as it cant be withdrawn... anyway... I have sold most of my stuff but I do have pretty much every Arcana left (except CM, I am keeping that for nostalgia) and I would like to give away those Arcanas to people who will use them. People who maybe cant afford them for whatever reason.

I also have a 750 (or so? might be 850 I really dont remember) level battle pass but I assume I cant give that away?

So, if your favourite hero is Zeus, Rubick, Legion Commander... whoever else has Arcanas... PA! PA has one! But you can't afford it, I dunno maybe you're young and you have no income. Maybe you're old and just have too much outgoings to spend any on pixels. Anyway, gimme a shout below. Let me know your favourite Hero's Arcana, maybe share a story of good will or something. A story about how the Dota community has some good linings in its pile of shit. Do something to improve this shitty community and you can have whatever Arcana it is you want (oh shit I have the techies one too lol).

So in summary, if you want an Arcana that you dont have. Share a story about Dota 2. Share some information that will make me smile and think, damn, those 4000 hours were not completely wasted. But please, lets be cool, don't try take from others who don't have to just sell. Dota sucks enough already, let's be cool.

Have fun! Share some stories! (Dota Clips are good too) Have a long and good life and stay safe!

For the Record I have:




Phantom Assassin

Legion Commander


Earth Shaker (Apparently cant be traded or gifted?? Didnt know. If it cant be taken off my steam account disregard tbis one)

EDIT: I expected to go to bed and wake up to maybe 20-30 comments. Not 400... still Im reading through them. I have sent messages to the various people I have chosen for Arcanas. Ill give them until end of the day to reply and if not I'll move onto new people.

Looking for a specific sound bite (DDLC)

by Katie_or_something. Posted on Aug 10, 2020

I'm trying to find a audio clip from Doki Doki literature club but i can't remember which episode it's from. It's late in the "first run", Arin is impatient for the thing to happen, and the girls are talking about something inane and irrelevant. Arin exasperatedly says something like "You guys are fucking CHATTY today!"

Hate that gosh darn limit...

by manzoqueen. Posted on Aug 10, 2020

Ok, so as many of you know, the xbox user limit was changed. I had a really good username that I liked, but I didn't know about this at the time, so I changed it. Now I really miss it, but it was 14 characters long. Is there anyway to get it back without an xbox 360?

Please tell me if theres a better place to put this

by bee_bitch_. Posted on Aug 10, 2020

--Xbox one x repair help--

So my xbox one x has not been turning on, like I'll press the button and it will beep? And when I hold down the botton the light will turn on for a second or two and turn off again but the system itself wont turn on

I dont think it's the fan but I'm not 100% sure, the inside is clean, and I've replaced the power eject RF LED board module (I've read that's what I was supposed to do but it still won't work) and I got a new power cord but it still wont turn on, any suggestions?

Edit: sorry if I sound dumb, I'm only 14 and I dont 100% know how this works I'm making this post to help me and my dad out:)

Just changed my sensitivity for the first time ever on pc, I had that sens for 9 months. Any tips on how to get by?

by Jhumm03. Posted on Aug 10, 2020

I went from a 1000 DPI and 17.00 sens to a 1000 DPI 11.00 sens in Overwatch, and I’m finding it hard to get by (obviously) but I was wandering if you guys had any tips. The reason I changed is because I was still over shooting after 9 months of getting used to it, it was very fast and was hard to manage. One slight movement and my crosshair was not where I wanted it to be. I know it was dumb setting it high but at the time I got my pc I was still learning how to use MKB and fast sens was very good for me.

If you have any tips that’d be great.

Just played ryse: son of rome, and wow

by refinedsorcerer. Posted on Aug 10, 2020

I just spent the whole day playing Ryse: Son of Rome on pc and god damn it is so underrated. The combat system was shitty ngl (although the slowmo and the shield sparks were still pretty cool), but the cut scenes, music score, and visuals made this game a masterpiece. Some of my favorite scenes were:

  • when marius bangs on his shield as he leads the ships burn down behind him in the early chapters
  • when vitallion charges into the front line to fight boutica (near the ending)
  • the whole fight between marius and the final guards before he kills nero ( the choreography was perfect)
  • nero poetically getting impaled by his own statue's sword

edit : what were your favorite scenes?


edit2 : Why the downvotes? Are we not allowed to have opinions on this subreddit?

Story Focused & Narrative-Heavy Games

by NatApfel. Posted on Aug 10, 2020

I grew up reading choose your own adventure novels like the Fighting Fantasy books. I remember as a kid on the weekends getting a little backpack, putting my dice a pencil, and a single fruit snack for each of my rations and running around the house playing out the adventure in my imagination!
So its no surprise that now I love playing board games with a big focus on delivering or exploring a story. I've thoroughly enjoyed games like Forgotten Waters, Legacy of Dragonholt, War with the Evil Power Master, and the story that plays out in campaign games like Kingdom Death: Monster and Gloomhaven.

I've found that for the most part stories in games sit in one of two categories:

  • Emergent narrative: stories that are created by the actions you take in the game. Games that come to mind are 7th Continent where the story plays out through you skill tests and exploration of the map. And Nemesis where all the mechanics come together to play out this really cinematic experience full of tension!
  • Explicit narrative: stories that are delivered directly through storybooks, flavour text and the like. Games that come to mind are Forgotten Waters where each action you take delivers a bit of story through it's app and eventually takes you through an entire storyline which you explore through the game's book and map. And Legacy of Dragonholt, which is far more like one of the classic choose your own adventure games where you read a paragraph of story and make a decision which takes you to the next.

I enjoy both of these kinds of narrative delivery. Maybe more on the end of explicit narrative when im playing solo though!
What kind of narrative delivery do you enjoy most?
What are some of your favourite games that have made you feel really involved in it's story?

For anyone that has the Kishi and a galaxy s9 how does it look/feel? Does the phone feel to small and do some games have the big black bars that some mobile games have?

There's still hope

by AttractiveWatermelon. Posted on Aug 10, 2020

Friendly reminder that the Eminence of Ristul arcana came out at 3:16 UTC

At the time of writing it's 2:16 UTC, 7:15PM seattle time. It's certainly still outside of normal work hours, but there's still a chance.

EDIT: 3:10 UTC - the hope dwindles :(

3:16 UTC - We are in unprecedented territory here, a shame indeed

Pack it up lads - there’s still next week.

Retro fighting game suggestions

by lectric_shadow. Posted on Aug 10, 2020

I've never been super big into fighting games, mostly casual. I've played a lot of Injustice, mortal Kombat, and some killer instinct, but I've had the itch for some old school fighting games. Anyone have any suggestions on some older fighting games I can play on Xbox?
