this is a cool looking indie "metroidvania" type game. check out the trailer here:

A demo for an older version of the game is available here: http://www.bit-blot....uaria/demo.html

It feels like Castlevania mixed with Echo the Dolphin. I'm still undecided on whether to get it or not though.

It looks pretty. If they ever put it on sale for $10, I'll get it for sure.

If i ever get through all the DS titles I have in this genre, I may pick this up. I still haven't finished the original Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow.
Saying you're really good at Borderlands is the equivalent to saying you suck at videogames.

That puts a genuine closed parenthesis at the end of my colon. :)

Yeah, I think I'm gonna hold off from purchasing this one until it goes on sale during a Steam sale weekend

Very interested in it, but even $16 looks a little too much for it imo

looks awesome, Ecco the dolphin is still one of my top genesis games, but I'll wait for the inevitable steam deal

i think there should be a steam deals thread as opposed to having a bunch of threads for each game and deal.
my trade list doesnt have anything in it right now, but it will someday. soon. hopefully. maybe.

I suggested that before, but with anyone making up anything they want... nothing to stop the threads from being created.

we should just have a stickied Steam thread.

i agree. and if a thread is created, it can be added and then moved or removed.

I personally think a thread per title/deal is better suited for readers. A stickied thread must be constantly monitored for deals, however a killer Steam deal in its own thread will probably stay near the top of the forum due to activity. Likewise, a crap deal will just sink to the bottom unless people are having off-topic conversations about it (hi).

I (and I assume many others) use the forum as a sort of filter to cut out the crap deals and the cream rises to the top - save for some flaming on "crap" deals. The stickies prevent the filter from running its course and we have to check each thread manually. I also think that the weekly ads are good for a sticky, however if there is a truly killer deal in those ads it can have its own thread. Everyone is going to have their own preference...

Yeah, I don't think a collection of deals would be a good idea
People would likely miss out on deals if they didn't check back every week :(

Aquaria is a great game. It's definitely worth $16.
