I don't know. It does look pretty fucking horrible.

:lol:


By the way, that is laughing, right? As in, "I laugh at the notion that anyone would want that game".

It wasn't supposed to be a smiley face (as in "yes please") and you just hit the wrong smiley, right?

I just bought FTL after seeing it on sale and hearing all this GOTY hype. Its a good game, I get it what its trying to achieve and etc but I dont see why this game deserved GOTY tho.
Visualize my mind... :whee:

I tend to think everyone actually is their avatar or signature.

For example, I'm under the impression that Genocidal actually is the late Eddie Guerrero.

Of course on some days I think he's Locke from Final Fantasy VI.

RollingSkull is a very smug Pheonix Wright.

Mooby is a slobbering golem that loves RPGs.

And asheskitty is a shapeshifter. Though before that she was invisible.

Serious Sam is now Wolfenstein.

And I am very tired.

I wish I was the pilot of Gaiking if that's any consolation.

Yes it is. I thought it must be hyperbole and installed it myself last week.

It is that bad. A puzzle game needs consistency on how things work. When a solution fails in Bad Rats, you really have no idea if it was because you need to tweak placements or because it just randomly didn't work that time.

Add to that a rather limited set of objects to work with for the puzzles, quickly leading to boredom.

It is that bad. Pity, as a game with that concept could work. They just did everything wrong in the execution of the concept.

I found that while there was an element of randomness (which, yes, is really inexcusable), there was a finite amount of deviance. After pulling the trigger 3 or 4 times, you got an idea if you needed to move something. In getting all the achievements, I hit the play button a lot.

But yeah, they executed piss-poorly everywhere.

I don't have a lot of experience with physics puzzlers (I don't think Portal counts for this discussion), but I kept seeing Crazy Machines compared to Bad Rats, and I hope that series sees a reasonable discount soon.

Is that Bad Rats offer still out there?

hmm, my first impression of that guy's post was that it was a lame attempt at humor. After all, Seymour's hint wasn't all that subtle. I thought he was either just pretending not to know what it was, or he was using the chance to take a shot at the game Metro 2033.

After seeing everybody else's response to him though, I guess I was probably wrong. If you guys are right, it was kinda a dick move to bitch about a give away. He's lucky that he didn't end up with Bad Rats.


I originally typed something nicer and changed it after I looked at his posting history. To me that made it clear what kind of person I was dealing with.

I dropped a Bad Rats code here a while ago. No one ever said they used it or tried though.

I have a handful of leftover July Madness Bundles - PM if interested

^ I just finished the whole thing (Bad Rats), and while by no means is it not a bad game, it's not nearly as awful as everyone makes it out to be.

I played it for a while years ago, and from what I remember, I have the same opinion of the game.

That said, I did stop playing and haven't bothered to go back again to complete it.

I think most of the people in here are aware that Amazon has started its bigger winter deals, so I won't highlight the deals that are in that thread already. However, there are some other interesting stuff in there (all should activate on Steam, according their page. I'm not saying these are the best deals on the item ever or that they won't be beaten in the Winter sale, but I'm only mentioning those that seem to be competitive. (I'll update if I see anything else.)

Might and Magic Clash of Heroes : $2.54
Viking: Battle for Asgard : $5.09
Payday the Heist (4 pack) : $14.99
Jet Set Radio: $3.39

Rigonauts is the daily for $3.39 (66% off). Six CAGs on my friends list want it, and it doesn't look that bad...but I can see it being a bundle game soon. How many bundles has World of Goo been in? Exactly.

The daily deal for today is the really excellent Defender's Quest for $5. There is a chance the publisher site might update the price, as getting it there also gets you a GoG key as well.

I guess I've gotten pretty jaded, because I do want to play this, but it doesn't look like it's worth even $5 to me when it looks like bundle fodder. Maybe the Humble bundle that's about to drop? I'm not sure of the dev relationships to know if that's realistic, but that would be nice.
