Dunno about Political Machine. Maybe for $2.50 but even then, the first still seems like the best.

Ether Vapor Remaster and Fairy Bloom Freesia are interesting looking. Anybody tried those?

Never played Viking on consoles. Was it good?

Viking was a really ghetto version of God of War.
Very repetitive hack and slash with no enemy variety.

I played it a few years ago, but I remember it being a solid spectacle fighter. Wasn't straight action either, had some stealth areas. I enjoyed it enough to plan on picking it up sometime as long as it isn't a bad port.

Now I'm just wondering why it's in the Total War pack.

I said this earlier in the thread. The game didn't really need a graphics update, but some more variety. Besides the lack of variety and minimal story every else the game offers is quite good. I mean I quite liked the combat however, the 12ish pure hours of it wasn't really to my liking.

I would say to wait for a sale on it. It is good and quite fun, but it isn't something that needs to played nor something at this very moment. Although I would at almost any discount it would be a good price to pick it up for.

If this game required me to roll back to 18-month-old drivers, scour the Steam forums for a custom .ini to make it work on 64-bit Windows, and crashed every 8 minutes it would probably still make me less frustrated and angry than real world politics.

Well, again, a LOT of people disagree with me.


I was going to disagree with you on the principle of defending a series I like a little better than you do, but then you said something completely sensible...

What you CAN do with that saved money is just buy SS:TSE. Get classic for $2.50. It's still such a nice looking game that the HD remake is kinda superfluous, though you won't go wrong getting the newer edition for $5.

If you have a controller you should use it. I have no idea how some games can be played without one. Then again I'm coming from many many years of console gaming to PC gaming so it feels natural to me. I even play FPS games with a controller.

I'm the opposite in that I'm so used to KB+M that I resist using a controller even when I should. But I think this is an occasion where I definitely should.

My final opinion on XCOM and Dishonored, if anyone is interested.

Dishonored isn't great. It's workmanlike. It delivers a lot of what it promises but what it delivers just doesn't reach the quality of the greats of the genre. (And what genre it is is almost as much a question in and of itself, depending on how you divide the line between Thief and Deus Ex.) A lot of people earned their paychecks and delivered a pretty good game but this is not going to go in the history books, at least not any I'd write.

XCOM, however, is great. Looking at all the design changes between the new game and the old, you can't at least whistle in respect at what sort of philosophy animated this game. They took risks and it all paid off so beautifully into something I will say surpasses the original, at least in pure fun, even if it prunes, almost by necessity, some of the original's more chaotic elements.

Why would you play a PC FPS with a controller? Like the whole point of PC gaming is using the superior bar of soap!

Darksiders PC port was the same way. Best played with a controller unfortunately. Most of the PC ports seem to be doing more and more of this considering the 360 controller is damn near considered the prevalent PC game pad. Less time wasted I suppose.

Melee based 3rd person action/platforming games (Assassin's Creed, Amalur, Darksiders, Prince of Persia, etc) and driving games get the controller treatment from me pretty much automatically. I try to use KB+M for most other things, and for any 3rd person games with aimed shooting, but a 360 pad on my PC is priceless at times.

If I'm not playing multiplayer on the PC I will most likely use a gamepad when playing. I have my PC hooked up to a TV and I like to lean back and relax while I play not sit over my desk. I am nearly is good with a gamepad as with KB/M. I like that there is more gamepad support, I think some genres are better generally with gamepad while others KB/M and I its nice to have choice. I don't understand why people seem to balk at having a choice in how they play.

Edit: Also I need more people to play borderlands with so feel free to add me on steam everyone :)

I played it with a KB/M with no problems whatsoever and felt it controlled perfectly fine. Funny, I hit ESC for cancel/back/etc for nearly anything in any game and get pissed off beyond belief when that doesn't work heh. Quicker and easier to hit the key then to twitch my hand for a moment.

To me it depends on the game. Some games are just made for controller. Choplifter HD was a bit clunky with KB/M, but the controller made it funner. There is still bad button placement on it though that makes it hard to speed and shoot at the same time.

Mafia doesn't have native controller support I don't think, but any action sandbox type game is made for controller IMO.

I don't have my PC hooked up to a TV but I like to sit back in my computer chair and relax with a gamepad. The only genres where I really prefer KB/M are APRGs (Diablo, Torchlight), MMOs and certain RPGs (Baldur's Gate, Dragon Age I, etc.) Don't really play RTS but KB/M is clearly the better choice there as well. If I plan on playing an FPS game online, I will get it for consoles so I can have my preferred controls and not be at a disadvantage against KB/M users.

I for one grew up using a gamepad for a FPS as I didn't get into playing them on pc til I was older and my first PC gaming experiences were C&C and Diablo series. So therefore, I don't like using a keyboard and mouse for FPS. If I am able I use a gamepad.

I actually agree 100% here. Dishonored delivers on what it promises but it's just not as good as the games it tries to be. XCOM is fantastic, and with ironman mode, it just makes the game so much more intense.

Also noticed a new game up, Fairy Bloom Freesia. Looks like a 2D brawler from Japan, published by Capcom. Gonna throw that on the wishlist.

Keep in mind nine (so probably all but one or so) have Steam keys so it limits the field a bit.
