gamer. any game that i get into, i play to finish and win, not just for fun. used to break codes to skip levels and max items back in the 8-bit NES days. i like puzzles.. solved Rubiks Cube without help (took 4 pages of notes). solved fastest solution to Rubiks Magic Links from solved position either side to solved reverse side. i like pool/billiards and strategy in cards. super selective in multi-player games team/mmo party formation. loner, renegade, Christian, idealist, enigmatic. Bible prophecy student, current events interests.. and i love great deals on games

i cant find the bookmarking feature independent of owned games/mods, so im using this instead, for my notes. i noticed a game tracking feature but thats more geared for update notices. it'd be nice to have an Add to (custom) List , button available on every game page, if that doesnt exist yet, like on GamersGate wishlist.
any game i note here (unless otherwise indicated) in blog simply means have further interest/ will look into, later (maybe, if i get around to it)... as for the blog rules, "The article content is unique, original, relevant and presented in a professional manner," my notes here wont be presented professionally and not even intended as a public blog entry. im making use of this as an on-site notes thing since theres no customizable user game list i can find yet (apart from the automatic one for owned games). so if this gets deleted, __
can only have so many Tb of external HD space, right?, so in an attempt to be more organized, before i install any games, this is a sort of screening system.
Games I Happened to Encounter (Among the Thousands Available) Which I Might Like (aka That I Havent Ruled Out Upon Initial Perusal) -- it doesnt mean i like the game, or even that i'll get around to actually trying it, since i have way too many queued up, and other stuff ive been meaning to do, side projects etc
Gateways - Half-Life 2 mod
Aberration - Half-Life 2 mod
^ verify if standalone or base game needed. install size not indicated.
bits of game information like that.... the lack of it says something. yea i can google/find it by other means but i find it just as useful as ranking and certainly more useful than # of watchers, news, reviews, and the Share thing at the end, w/e that is (im noob still).
Amnesia The Dark Descent
a tab for similar games of same genre would be nice, with a user-customizable option of how many in list and option to randomize order of appearance or keep in descending order of rank. of course something like that should be a randomized subset and not always the top few most popular games atm.
This is a cool site, glad i found it. If it ever tends more to the big developers of multi-million and billion dollar resources at their disposal, I'll be migrating to other sites. i like it better than steam, definitely.
Desura stands out among the many gaming sites ive seen on the web, along with Good Old Games, Big Fish Games, and Indie Game Bundles, to name a few. bargains, launches, reviews, forums... all elements of a winning game site, besides the quality of the games themselves. best of the gaming world online, apart from the specialized mmo scene, which deserves a whole category in itself...
