I avoid most of the F2P type games because I see them as money pits. Maybe someone can prove me wrong, but most just seem like the "free" part is usually very sucky/limited and only meant to get people addicted or obsessed enough to get them to drop money on stuff to "enhance" the game play. I know most games provide a non monetary way for people to "buy" in game items, but the time needed for it is usually crazy long. I have no prob if you avoid those in the future or at least limit them.

^ Where I can not prove you wrong but there are F2P MMOs that have NO CASH SHOP and NO SUBs at all but still call themselves F2P because in the end you have to play on their servers. Games like Allegiance come to mind.

i have an idea for your list, not sure if you've thought of this or if anyone has suggested this already but i think it would be cool to have lists for free games on desura and steam. i know theres a lot of good free games on desura but are hard to weed out.

ps. nitronic rush is on desura now.

I can look into that.

Right now the games that are on STEAM and Desura are on here. I will update Nitronic Rush with the back up link for Desura.

I was wondering if either Megazell or someone else here with just as good journalistic capabilities could begin a different thread documenting all of the indie games out there sold ONLY through the developer's websites.

There's a lot of stuff out there you just never see mentioned any where unless you already know the developer and their site ike Cryptic Comet.

That sucks, I wonder why digipen asked for it to be removed. I added it to my Desura account before it got taken down, it looks like it might be permanently tied to it now. Great game btw, but the controls can take some getting used to for some of the harder tracks (I'm using a 360 controller).

I use my P220 for this game and it's great.

Digipen probably wanted to use the fame that NR is getting to promote their site and work. Which I can not blame them for it.

How do you manage to pull off multiple wall rides in quick succession with a P220? Sounds more difficult than it would be with a 360 controller lol. I get confused easily with the direction I need to rotate my car with how fast you have to make the transition for wall rides in some tracks. I switched to the advanced controls, which helps but I guess I'm just not skilled enough yet.

I use one of the triggers + pitch to do the transitions.

It's in my post holder. Yeah, I check all of the games 2x to 3x each before posting. It's also part of the posting rules.

Many great SEGA fan made games get bad press like this. Usually, I think it's because they are so good they put SEGA to shame and they leak a false story like this prior to taking it down like SOR5.

Just a head's up about the Sonic 2 HD alpha . Apparently, the programmer decided to add DRM (yes, really), to the alpha homebrew, and it's trashing some systems it's installed on as a result. See the following link for more info: http://www.sonicretr...closed-project/

That's ridiculous. First a keylogger, and now DRM lol. It's like they don't want you to play it. I don't get why they haven't taken the programmer off of their team yet.. Sounds like he's on drugs.

The version I have does not have the DRM and/or Keylogger. But I did dl it when it was initially released.

I'll just remove it from the queue until it's finalized anyway. Then pass judgement on it for the list.

Plenty of other awesome Sonic fan-mades to play anyway. If I could just finally kill Romero in GunGirl 2 :(.

Try OpenSonic and/or Ultimate Flash Sonic. Those are great homages to what SONIC use to be. Even if you're not into the character the communities behind them many of the levels are outstanding.

OpenSonic is on the list under Platformers. There is only 1 3D Sonic on this list. The rest are 2D old school.

Megazell, sorry to say that *all* versions of the alpha have the DRM - the dev team stated that the programmer would not release the alpha without it. Again, check out the link I posted above, and you can read what members of the dev team had to say about it (they are none too pleased with the programmer at the moment).

I double check and upload it via PM to ya.

Edit - Just ran it again. It's same as the 2nd link from the site. I also read the link 2x now. There is nothing going off on my virus scans, firewall or anything. I even tried it on a few other rigs. I can take screenshots just fine to. I don't see what the issue is but for now just going to take it off until it's finalized. :)

No problem. Just trying to give you a head's up. No one wants to nuke their system by accident. Aparently, the DRM primarilly kicks in when people try to mess with the .exe file itself. However, I know people who had their systems just quit working after running (or trying to remove) the alpha. I wish it was 100% clean and working, as it looks great (esp. for an alpha release). Who knows? Maybe they'll clean it up for the final version.

I hear you. I'm just not seeing it. No alarms up and the game is in zip. I've dl'ed, played and 3 del it 3x over. With no problem.

How did you not know this when everything with the game (site, dl...) including the game itself when you boot it up says Alpha Release???
