Hatred, which is basically a modern successor to Postal 1. Was briefly removed from Steam before being reinstated by gaben himself
Still not available here in Australia. Man, I live in a shithole. :'(   
It actually is, via legal loophole you can purchase it from their site without issue. The game, however, I'd say is a 6.5/10 at best, coupling some very good maps and design choices with ideas unarguably much worse. It's not the broken game it was on release, but it's not worth purchasing full price IMO. The dev team was very active and responsive and fixed some issues literally just an hour after I reported them.

I still love it, though. I haven't seen destruction and fire physics on par with it since Far Cry 2 or Red Faction.

Iím also super duper drunk at this point. Grains of salt etc.

Games are wonderfully about lots and lots of things so I think you can have a good game based off of physics, story, mood, gameplay, variability, progression, punchy shooting, punchy punching, multiplayer, player trolling, or any combination of those things.

(Of course my favorites are the ones that combine mood, story, and player trolling juuuuust right. Too bad you can almost certainly only experience such a thing properly one time...)

Are there any other good player trolling games side from Undertale and The Stanley Parable?

I read that and decided I should get the Stanley Parable to play at some point, so I went to Steam to put it on my wishlist, except I couldn't because it's already in my library. I guess that's what having 360 Steam games that I haven't even played does.

I have several things on my account that I just don't have the rig to play. I bought Witcher 3 (on sale, admittedly) after getting pissed off with several indie games with kinda shitty devteams, so I decided to support a devteam that's actually been really cool towards their customer base.


...but beyond the warm glow of moral superiority, I haven't personally gotten anything out of the deal. Consumerism is weird.

Consider it an investment. Someday you will get a beefy rig that can run Witcher 3, and by then most if not all of the worst bugs will have been ironed out. Maybe even a free expansion or something.

Mild wtf, WaPo's 'you have adblock on' notification keeps coming up in private browsing mode despite adblock actually being off. Seems to have no effect on the 'you have read x articles' counter though if I refresh, which makes it a bit less annoying than it otherwise would be.

I'm sad that that game was very briefly free-to-keep on steam, and was gone before I could get it. :(
