Dungeon Defenders: Aquanos Update Not Working (SOLVED)

Many gamers that love Dungeon Defenders were disappointed the other day after Steam downloaded the Aquanos update.  Many would try to launch the Aquanos map from their Tavern, see the game trying to load the map, then get kicked back out to the Multiplayer list screen that would allow them to select a game to join.

I found a fix on Steam's forums that worked for me, and have blogged detailed instructions at That One Tech Support Site.

The fix involves closing Steam, renaming the ClientRegistry.blob file in the Steam installation directory, relaunching Steam (forcing a recreation of the ClientRegistry.blob file and a download of the latest Steam Client Update.  You then verify the integrity of the game's cache files ... close and relaunch Steam again, then test your issue to see if it is fixed.

I hope it works for you like it did me.

This fix may work for other games you have issues with after updates as well.

Nitronic Rush - Racing Survival Game from DigiPen Students

Nitronic Rush
(borrowed from the Nitronic Rush homepage)
Hey Gamers!
Dragonfly (Duane) told me about this game today called Nitronic Rush.  It is a project developed at DigiPen; a technology/gaming school.

PC Gamer referred to it as "the lovechild of Tron, TrackMania and Transformers"

Story mode - flight
It's pretty cool looking... Shawn (Ender) and I checked it out for a few minutes with the keyboard.  It's a little hard to control with a KB, but could be really fun with a gamepad.  I don't know that it has multiplayer, but it has leaderboards we could compete with each other on.

It appears to have a story mode and competitive mode.

Give it a test run and see what you think!  Fans of TrackMania will most likely find enjoyment in this title.  Kudos to the developers that created the game!

Takin' some air...
