Randomly generated words

I thought I'd launch a topic for generic/random discussions that don't merit a new topic on their own. I can always split them into topics if they end up being talked a lot about.

Feel free to post anything you like here.

I was looking at Steamspy's stats, and it struck me that in its first 6 years, Steam added less games (750) than in any recent month. (e.g. 873 games added in September, current record holder.)

I remember when Greenlight was being criticized for allowing shit games to go through. Made sense that Valve would replace the system with an even worse one, ah ah... Be careful what you wish for, eh..?

Now I'm wondering if they're regretting their decision, in light of the fact that they're letting through any kind of asset flips. (e.g. just look at the Match 3 tag page, there's a lot of games with 'berry/berries' in their name, they're all asset flips from a Unity tutorial, and they were all eventually removed by Valve, but how many games like that until it stops...?)

Fun fact: I have a Bacon number of 3. (Yes that's me.)
Me -> Jeroel Tel (composer on my game) -> Charlie Hankin (actor & musician) -> Kevin Bacon (both starred on I love Dick.)
Technically the Bacon Oracle doesn't keep track of video game artists, but I don't care, I'm just one away from a Bacon #2. :P

So, nothing related to Lestrade's or video games (well, vaguely..)
I was using my Steam client, noticed overnight trading cards were added to Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy, and auto-farmed by ASF.
Went to sell the cards (nice values), then visited the game page to see in which way it was 'remastered'.
Started reading description.
Stumbled upon this: "Cinematic Score — Fahrenheit features a fully orchestrated [check] score composed by Angelo Badalamenti, famous for his extensive work with director David Lynch. "

I am absolutely not shitting you: my playlist, at that very moment, was playing the main melody of the Twin Peaks theme. Considerin my playlist runs in repeat mode forever, and it has 13.591 items in it right now (for a total of nearly 5 weeks worth of music),, I'd call it quite the coincidence. I mean Badalamenti is not a musician you see everywhere.
