I'm really hoping for Binary Domain [I really want to shoot robots!] to be one of the sales games going on sale. I bought Twisted Metal.... I hope the MP is good.

How's Twisted Metal? I just bought some games last week so I don't really know if I should jump on these 2


To me, even the easiest setting (Normal) was really tough. The AI are very aggressive and would often times pin me against a wall to where I couldn't back up or move, my health slowly depleting as their ramming/shooting me.

Also, I only got to the third level but Sweet Tooth's campaign is pretty bleak. It's like American Psycho but without the black humor. Definitely not for kids, but if you enjoy torture porn type films then this may be right up your alley.

Do the tutorial first. There are three different types of control setups and you'll need to find one that's suitable as the AI doesn't ease you into the game.

Picked up Darkness II for $10. I know it's been a similar price on PC but I can eBay the 360 version when I'm done with it

Felt the same about Sweet Tooth, knew he was always a crazy clown but this forever changed his perception as a silly playstation character or someone you use in battle royale or star hawk to something way too dark.
I was looking for a website for ass gaming, but I found this one instead.

Don't forget about Twisted Metal Black!

Sweet Tooth's backstory feels slightly toned down compared to Black IMO, infact I think the re-imagining of Sweet Tooth in this game is somewhat ridiculous, now he has his whole crowd of fanatics, and his head was set ablaze by simply donning the clown mask. So I guess he became a little more social? I felt they tried to merge his Black story into this with the maniacal sense of slaughter but came up short. He just seemed more tame overall, although I think that's kinda hard to argue from all the murders he commits in the cutscenes.

But what I mean is that in Black he killed for the simple sense of enjoyment and thrill (same with TM2012) but in this new one he was practically obsessed with finding Sophie because she got away, so he was murdering anyone that got in his path to Sophie. In Black he did it so that people talked about his murders and how many new victims he had killed, and fear him. Then when he got caught all he could think about was "What a waste. All those people I hadn't killed yet." I think that sentence alone is darker than anything he said in TM 2012, and of course he gets cursed by the Preacher, to feel the pain his victims felt by setting his head ablaze. :hot:

Wait, are you people still buying Syndicate right now?


Looks like it's sold out, since it's only listed as keep on the page. Can't just outright buy it. :(

Hoping to see SfxT go cheaper than 19.99.

Yes, I'm a cheapass. But when I'll later be purchasing 20-30$ in DLC, I've got to make the initial purchase as low as possible.

Debating on TM. I want to try it (and hopefully it would come with Black), but I played Head-On on PSP and found it very meh. Is this TM better than Head-On?

i got my Twisted Metal today and it IS the limited edition, complete with code for Online Play, another for TM: Black, and another for a skin in Starhawk. I'm also the OP, so got my order in very early, though I don't know if that matters.

The game is pretty awesome, if you like TM. I've played through Sweet Tooth's campaign, and it feels like the other TM's I've played. That said, I'm only a fan, not a hardcore player so it's a fwiw. Maps are big and pretty, mechanics feel right, etc.

I don't even think my Syndicate shipped yet, though.

Good to hear that some people did get the TM LE. I'm slightly bummed that I didn't, as I actually never played Black and wanted to try it, but it's not the end of the world.

Glad I didn't buy it then, that would be the only reason I'd have picked it up.

Thanks for the headsup on this OP. Got syndicate in the mail yesterday. Seems like a pretty cool FPS with a decent story . For 10 bucks heck yes. Great condition and came with some DLC something or another that I'll probably never use
