The Gneech With Steam

So, I've got a Steam account, here...


I haven't done much with it, because I'm generally resistant to the whole "software as a service" model, but I have finally found a game where I'm interested in the social/multiplayer aspect enough to actually get connected, to wit SkyDrift.

It's basically an arcade racer game with planes... sorta like Crimson Skies if you took out the dieselpunk setting and anything resembling a plot. I remember when the trailer came out, thinking "Yup! Gotta get that one..." but then I didn't hear anything else about it until @mlp_Rainbow dropped in conversation that she'd been playing it.

Twenty minutes later, I'd downloaded the demo and was blazing away. ¬.¬

So far I'm about 2/5 of the way through the "campaign" (by which they mean, every type of race on every course, forward and reversed), playing on "hard" difficulty. Some races I find ridiculously easy (the Speed Race mode is one I usually do very well with), while others are crazy hard (Power Race kills me). But I'm practiced up enough now that I want to start cutting my teeth on some PvP action, hence my posting here.

So... anybody wanna race? ;)
