IGN says the story is wanting but gameplay is so good they gave it a 9.3. Also said PC versions looks so much better get it if you have a choice, which is kinda duh since its GFWL and great gamepad support, but that confirms the PC port is good unless someone has seen something bad about it?

Since I can't get the $20 rewards with PC version at BB, I think I'll sell my 360 copy after reading that. Between BB preorder special DLC, the $20/ in rewards, I should easily make some money on it,and just get the PC version first good sale I see.


Good idea. I think i am with you on this.

Backlog? What backlog?

Just a heads up, after 8,500 bundles are sold in the current Groupees Be Mine 5 they will unlock a bonus Steam key for Kung Fu Strike: The Warrior's Rise.

At this time they only need 23 more bundles sold to unlock.


Just a heads up Kung Fu Strike: The Warrior's Rise has been unlocked now.

I love HIB, but I'm really taking a liking to receiving individual key per game in these bundles. I hope the next HI follows suit.

I've played a bit of Half Minute Hero: Super Mega Neo Climax Ultimate Boy over the last few days. It's all a bit... samey. I don't know what I was expecting but I don't think it was this. Every "level" is basically a 30-second puzzle where you need to beat the clock to kill the final boss.

On paper it seemed really fun. Maybe it's just me and I've outgrown games like this, but it just felt all a bit... bland.

There's no demo that I can see so I'd recommend you check out a few YouTube vids of it before buying (as luck would have it, I think TotalBiscuit is working on one now).

Stuff like that (and most indie games I'm not immediately dying to play a la Orcs Must Die/TL2) I've pretty much relegated to bundle fodder. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate those games that they're usually just a nice little creative diversion for three to five hours of game play.

One could argue the bundles devalue games but ultimately I'm sure the developers get a nice profit (otherwise they wouldn't do it) and I get to experience games like Rochard, Wizorb, Shatter, etc. that I probably wouldn't have given a second look.

This is a key point for me, too. There's plenty of indie gems in bundles that I otherwise wouldn't touch, so it works nicely. HMH:SMNCUB was an impulse-not-going-to-the-pub-Saturday-night purchase, which I semi-regret. It's worth a punt, just not at £6.99.

p.s. [JR]Damn you all, damn you all to Hell![/JR] - I've just pre-ordered Dishonored.

There is a demo for the 360 version which I assume is identical. Anyone with a 360 could try it out using that route. I did when the game was released and found I had 0 interest in buying.

If you aren't trying Rochard no matter how often I pitch its quality it's your own fault. I was excited for it from seeing reviews back when it was a PS3 exclusive and it did not disappoint.

Played through all of Rochard last week.

The style is charming, though nothing particularly interesting. The story is a bit throw away, and some of the characterizations are borderline offensive (Skyler's Indian Uncle that owns the space casino and the space police force's... flamboyantly homosexual qualities come to mind), but in a largely innocent way.

The combat is kind of terrible, and becomes a heavy focus in the latter half of the game. I found the combat frustrating and dull, and really hurt the rest of the game.

That aside, however, the puzzles in the game are fantastic. They're clever without being frustrating and include a nice mix of timing and conceptual execution.

I really just wish it had been nearly all puzzling, because the combat really does drag the rest of the game down.

But it's only 3-6 hours long, and is totally worth a playthrough.

I hated Borderlands before it was cool to hate Borderlands. I'm so ahead of the curve I realize now that to be a proper counter-culture hipster I have to LIKE Call of Duty.

You should enjoy the ignore feature of CAG. I ALSO find all forums more pleasant when everyone who has an opinion not like my own is blocked from my sight so make with the ignoring and your day will be unbothered.

Hipster as a term just needs to be retired. When you have hacky sitcoms on a station for senior citizens like CBS even making fun of hipsters, the whole thing has collapsed in on itself.

I guess I'm not sure why RollingSkull disliking Borderlands means he can only be a hipster or a troll.

It's also possible he just genuinely doesn't like Borderlands.

Right?

The industry hasn't quite matured to the level of movies or something but video games have really opened up as a medium and there are so many quality games where now it comes down to taste, just like movies and books and music.

Also, if you are attributing counter-culture solely to hipsters then you sir are a bigger fail than anyone else.

RollingSkull may voice opinions in a way that sparks heated debate, but he's not all bad. I mean, I don't recall him ever coming into a place he's never been before and, as his grand introduction, calling out one of the regulars there based on a single statement he just overheard. You know, because you can't exactly pin down someone's personality that way, and if you did have that ability, exercising it won't endear yourself to everyone else. So yeah, RS's got that going for him. I'd buy him a drink.

Honest question, what did Amazon offer that made Xcom seem like a better deal than GMG?

And I try and fail many times to ignore stuff in threads that turns it directly toward me. I don't like the idea of entire pages of the Steam deals thread built around the novelty of my tastes in games so I am gonna try to resist now.
