Trump basically licked Putin's boots at the Helsinki presser.  What a disgrace.

Leveling up your steam profile gives you more showcases and allows you to have more friends. It's actually pretty useful in a stupid sort of way.

I actually have more showcases than I know what to do with now, but it is fun coming up with interesting uses for them!

You can get a showcase where you CHOOSE the achievements you want to show off.  The "rare" ones aren't the best depending which games you might play and the overall community.

Good to know.  I had no clue that there was a benefit to leveling up your steam profile and that sounds like a nice showcase to use.

As Tim noted I am playing BL2 again.    Going with Maya because she is hot.  Just kidding, in an FPS it really doesn't matter. :p  I just had the itch to play the game again.  Not sure how far I will get. 

BTW that link you gave me with the ability to look at Steam achievements organized in different ways was pretty interesting.  Not sure how they figure some of those rankings out.

Always at the cutting edge of video game releases, I'm spending most of my time on... Binding of Isaac (Rebirth, and extensions), which I had somehow never played, and got during Steam sales. Quite enjoying it, and how different layers of gameplay reveal themselves. It seems purely random at the beginning, but you learn how to actually manipulate and do get thebest out of what you're given.

Along this, after my initial run where I mastered Dark Souls III with caestus (ys, admire the masochism) I'm doing a run with a pyro which seems kind of easy mode compared to the first one, and a coop run with a friend with Paired Ringed Greatswords, which are completely silly, hence extremely fun.

You are welcome that I pushed you.  For only 44 more Steam EXP you can get to level 20 and get a new profile showcase.  The easiest will be to do the last of the 3 community ambassador tasks.

1) Post a status to your friends
2) View a guide in the Steam Overlay

Those 2 are very quick to do, you might get the new badge just on that. Otherwise you need

3) Post a video.  Thats a bit more complex, you need a youtube account, link to steam account.  I think I had short thing of serious sam.

You can get a showcase where you CHOOSE the achievements you want to show off.  The "rare" ones aren't the best depending which games you might play and the overall community.


Anyway, for your next challenge ;)  You have quite a few story based DLC things you could do, eg the Blood Ties bit

I see you playing some Borderlands 2, here are some non grindy things to try for:

Goliath, Meet David
Allowed a Goliath to level up four times before killing him
That one can happen normally and is both fun and very freaky ..  RECOMMENDED!

Then, go visit the places, do the things, hit level 50 at least :P

I blame Tim.

He goaded me to play Rise of the Tomb Raider in Extreme Survivor Mode.  Just finished it.  Don't do it, not that I am really worried that you would.  The game play was a bit tougher than Survivor Mode.  The annoying thing is that if you die you go back to your last campfire.  For the most part this is not that big of a deal.  There are a couple points though were you have a long quest, followed by a battle, followed by hard jumping or quick time events.  It is the last thing that is miserable.  Screw that up and you have to go back to the beginning are do the whole thing again.  The biggest pain as the final battle which ends with some quick time events against the boss Konstantine.  I did that several times.  I got really good at defeating the helicopter.

Well I am done with Tomb Raider until the next one comes out in September.  Can't wait for that one.

Oh...another annoying side affect is that my Steam Profile was using the rare achievement display.  It would showcase the rarest achievements that you have done.  Because I did this all my achievements that are showing up there are for Rise of the Tomb Raider.  For what it is worth, the only 0.7% of players have the Extreme Survivor Mode achievement.  Gone are the other fun ones I had, like Zombie Chopper from HL2.  Ah well.  I need a new showcase (again, not that anyone ever looks at those things).
