More free crap to a free game - wow, how generous...

It's a hat......doesn't matter if it wielded a lightsaber, it's useless in the game.

Don't care about the hat but it's a nice promotion.

What IS the goal in the game? Kill all humans?
By Thibby (SI Core Veteran) on Jul 30, 2011

In From Dust or in TF2?

TF2. It has become a tradition for Valve to offer hats in TF2. They also did that for Sam & Max, for instance

It was meant as a question to Illusive_Serb, I play TF2 I know whats up with the hats ;)

Oh. lol, sry. I think he meant in From Dust, and there you actually have to help the humans survive in atrocious environments by shaping nature.

I know the hats are useless, but some of them are pretty cool!

And a lot of them are considered status symbols among the vet players.

Wow only $15? Pretty cheap considering how good it looks.

Yea, sorry, I meant the point of "From Dust". So we have to help humans by shapeing nature, but we are the ones in the first place who build a gigantic volcano hanging over their heads?
Huh, I guess the "God game" really is a suteable name :D

I imagine that the playing value can only go so far...it will be interesting to see how many times will I save the humans from nature until, the game turns into cook em or drown them all? Heck, even God brought on the Great Flood...and the Biggest Earthquake in recorded history? well, that is coming soon near you.

Nice find, I can see why it would be used as a status symbol, it really sets you apart from the standard model.

Is someone making a transparent effort towards the Shogun competition?
By Thibby (SI Core Veteran) on Aug 02, 2011
Thibby
The Shogun competition is over :)
By Illusive_Serb (SI Veteran Member) on Aug 02, 2011
Illusive_Serb
Hell, I even forgot there was a competition :P
By SirRoderick (SI Elite) on Aug 02, 2011
SirRoderick
Yeah, I just saw that myself :)
Fingers crossed the next one is something I don't already have.

I hope it's not Deus Ex, because if it is Deus Ex I'm gonna cry :P
By SirRoderick (SI Elite) on Aug 02, 2011

Sweet tears of joy.
And at the thought I'd have to be insanely active to win it cause I'd die if I don't.

Uf, Deus Ex would be sweet or Red Orchestra :).
