  • Expo 2016: 2nd *cough* Annual EPIC Scavenger Hunt!

    Hello everyone! Welcome to the 2nd ever annual Icrontic Expo Scavenger Hunt...a few years late! We’re super excited to introduce some of you to the lore of Icrontic and awesome stuff about Detroit, and remind the rest of you about our historical shenanigans.

    Teams can be anywhere from 1 to 5 people. You guys can turn in your physical items by bringing them to me any time before the deadline-- for your photos, I'd like you to create a thread here on IC for each team. @Lincoln will be making a separate category on the forums for this, so anyone not interested can hide that so it won't muck up your content. Please label each photo in your thread with the requirement you are meeting.

    All photos must be taken during the event, meaning from this point onward! Your photo from Canada two weeks ago does not count.

    Please turn everything in by 3pm Saturday! I will need time to score. Italics denote a physical item.

    I want to see:

  • Re: ICHQ in The Sims 4

    So the first step in building ICHQ is creating the family, obviously. Unfortunately, Sims doesn't have a ton of options yet, and there are no dogs. so this is the best I could do.

    Brian @primesuspect

    Lincoln @linc

    Aaron

    Ryan @cannonfodder

    Hopefully with further expansions I'll get more options, and dogs!
    (I'm so so sorry Aaron)

  • Steam Family Sharing!

    This is a game changer, you guys.

    Steam just released information that starting next week, they will be opening up a beta for a feature allowing you to share your digital game library with close friends and family, with achievements and saves being logged to each individual account. Basically, you give authorization to a friend's computer to access your library, and they can play your games with no problems. There are limitations- you can only authorize ten devices (they don't say if you can rescind permission; maybe that's coming), and you share the ENTIRE library at one time. That means that if a friend of yours is using your library, you cannot also use your library at the same time. Additionally, not all games will be available on the share, due to technical difficulties with some of them (some games need 3rd party keys, etc.)

    Still, I think that this is super rad. I've wanted for ages to be able to share some of my games with others (EVERYONE MUST PLAY BIOSHOCK INFINITE). I also kind of love that Steam is doing this-- so many other companies are freaking out about sharing rights to things because then maybe people won't buy their stuff, and Steam is just like "we DGAF. Hats." I wonder if this will actually lead to a rise in sales for Steam (if the owner of the Steam library opens up their library while you are playing a game you lose access, with a box that pops up offering to allow you to buy the game you were playing).

    Thoughts?
