  1. General Video Game Deals Thread

    I don't remember much of it except that I didn't like it - but in the absence of anyone else coming forward; you'd be better off passing, and reinstalling HoMMIII or something like Age of Wonders if you want to scratch that itch.
  2. Artist for hire

    There's something sinister about that upside down smiley and the way he hangs off every post. My guess is he doesn't do the drawings at all, but has a factory full of little chinese children do them for him. I'll give them their due though, it's some good stuff.
  3. Games giveaway

    Whoops, If this is my fault for posting clickable links I apologise (for being lazy). Seems a little coincidental.
  4. Games giveaway

    Could be yeah. I guess one of them will be Batman Arkham Asylum - since I know I had that at the time.
  5. Games giveaway

    I've got a spare Crusader Kings II STEAM key for the unlikely thumb who doesn't already have it? PM/write to fabricate a claim for the game. And some humble bundle gifts which I'd copy and pasted into 'Google keep' but forgot to note the game they referred to (doh); All gone And since these aren't the sort of games someone is going to PM me for;
  6. Return of the Steam Box!

    Must have missed that part, did he go into any detail?
  7. Kerbal Space Program

    What does any of it mean? This game took me by surprise. I bought it simply because of the sale, but after spending some time with it I think I've fallen in love. It's quite an inspiring game. I'm just hoping the new update drops soon as apparently it breaks compatibility with old saves.
  8. Half-Life 3

    I wanted to believe so much I didn't realise how ridiculous it was until the end...
  9. Steam Summer Getaway Sale

    I haven't noticed either on sale if that helps. Savvy Gamer is also a pretty good site for keeping track of things. If you've got a phone it'll also start up and log into the STEAM app quietly in the background. It won't be long before they send someone round to 'help' you type in your credit card number.
  10. Steam Summer Getaway Sale

    An interesting thought - especially as they will presumably be 'out of print' following the sale. I'm not optimistic, but thanks for the idea, Hopefully nobody else thinks of it!
  11. PL4YST4TION 4

    I played enough of it to appreciate what was on offer, but not being a particular fan of the game, or console FPS in general, didn't stick with it. I'm not saying it's above criticism but I think it did bring enough to the table to warrant some distinction, even if they failed to make a more compelling game out of it. I feel people dismiss it out of hand too easily personally - it had a lot going for it. That said... it doesn't look like they've made any great strides on building upon that with KZPS4. Well I was referring more to this forum than the internet at large. The internet dislikes everything. I get the impression Gears of War is generally well liked round these parts though.
  12. PL4YST4TION 4

    I don't like first person shooters in general on consoles but I think KZ2 gets a disproportionate amount of criticism. Outside of its graphics/sound/atmosphere I thought it had a good feature set, from the included bots and multiplayer, to some good combat mechanics which were a little less gung-ho and ice-skatery than other games. I like the idea of moving from cover to cover and flushing enemies out methodically rather than the typical run & gun that defines the majority of shooters and I thought KZ2 did that pretty well - with some decent AI to boot. Not to say I'm a fan of the series or anything (when I saw the KZPS4 trailer I groaned and fell asleep like everyone else), but I could lump practically every mainstream shooter into the same category. Off the top of my head Call of Duty 4 was probably the last one to really distinguish itself for me. But this is supposedly the sort of games the mainstream wants.
  13. Yeah I really enjoyed this too. The lack of 'gameplay' filler made it all the better in my opinion and the format was a nice change. I didn't play them in any particular order and I felt like it fell together quite well, even if the ending was a little contrived. My only worry is I doubt any of the choices I made will have that much of an impact but since I only seem to care about that afterwards it's not dulled my appetite for season 2. Me neither, it's almost too subtle. I caught the references to the boat and 'the guy with the moustache' though which was pretty funny.
  14. Broken Age - Double Fine Adventure!

    Am I wrong in thinking it was Remo who warned against the game balloning in size in one of the first backer videos, or...? I don't know how anyone can be angry, upset or too disappointed when they watch the teaser trailer previously posted. That should calm anyones nerves. I think they will be secretly hoping backers will find it in them to be extra generous...
