      These Forums are closing!   10/04/2019

      After more than a decade of serving this community well, these forums have finally run their course and it's time to close them down. That doesn't mean we want to close the doors on our community, quite the opposite!
      Our discord server grows ever busier by the day, and we encourage all Double Fine fans to meet us over there www.discord.gg/doublefine In a short time these forums will become a read only archive and will remain that way until they become needed again.
      You never know, it might happen.  There is... a prophecy. Thank you all for being part of these forums, and remember that the fun is definitely not over - so please join us on Discord! Love ya, Spaff, Tim, Info Cow, and all of Double Fine.

  2. PC: Will it be region locked?

    Some good news and some bad news: Apparently, Microsoft has expanded its LIVE service to some new countries, including Argentina, my country. You can see that it's now included in the official list, which was updated recently: http://www.xbox.com/en-US/live/countries Sadly, I still can not buy IB from Steam, it seems that microsoft has yet to lift the region block for the new countries, hopefully you can ask them to do something about it. PS. Happy new year to everyone at Double Fine.
  3. Black Lake: Voting Discussion Thread

    The same idea also crossed my mind when I saw that Black Lake wasn't in the top 4. I mean they both seem to be dark and atmospheric titles. Black Lake seems more hunting and combat oriented, while the White Birch is more focused on exploration and puzzles, but if you work together I think they can be like two sides of the same coin.

    Oh boy! let's hope you guys can do something about it.
  5. PC: Will it be region locked?

    My thoughts exactly. The same thing happened to me last week with Dark Souls, it's really frustrating. Actually you can create a Live account and say it's from the US or UK or whatever, and then you can access the GFWL marketplace or play any game without problem. The thing is you just can't buy the game from Steam.
  6. PC: Will it be region locked?

    Sadly my prediction seems to have fulfilled :'( Hopefully you can do something about it, not every GFWL games are region locked on steam. Ex: Arkham Asylum, Bioshock 2, Dirt 2,etc

  8. PC: Will it be region locked?

    HAHAHA Indeed it is, but let's stay on topic
  9. PC: Will it be region locked?

    Given that microsoft is the publisher and the game uses GFWL, I am wondering if Iron Brigade will sadly be unavailable in some regions. Several GFWL games, like Arkham City or Dark Souls, can't be bought from some south american or european countries. Perhaps I'm just paranoid but being from Argentina, I'm somewhat afraid that I won't be able to play Iron Brigade :'(
  10. Great post. I'm studying soft engineering, and coincidentally last week we learnt about the waterfall model and agile development techniques, including scrum. It's amazing to see your take on them.
