I find it funny calling a war story badly written. War sucks. It's not supposed to be inspiring literature, it's supposed to be full of blood, death, sorrow, and ultimately suck.

Was Spec Ops a masterpiece of fiction? Not at all, but it accomplished what it set out to do, which was create a bleak, impossible, depressing scenario.


Compared to most other shooters, the story and characters are MUCH better in Spec Ops: The Line when compared to most games in its genre (military shooter).

You're definitely right - it set out to create a bleak, impossible, depressing, and screwed-up scenario - and it worked 100%, if you ask me.

When it comes to depressing story-driven and character-driven shooters, Max Payne series and Spec Ops: The Line surely do a damn good job at this.

Here's why I'd say otherwise - and that it does hit you with a right hook.


Spec Ops: The Line - END GAME SPOILERS

Spoiler


It's sad, dark, depressing, and bleak - no matter what. That's one of the main points of the game.
WAR IS HELL.


I'd like to point out for the endgame, that, (Spoilers)

I'm a war memoirs book junkie. The best books are terribly written (by soldiers), but the meat and potatoes of the story still gets through.

There were at least three or four racing games on flash/dailies. More that are just cheap 'default' sales.

Sorry if this has already been discussed... this thread moves at light speed... but does anybody have any opinions on Avernum: Escape From the Pit? Looks pretty interesting to me.

Ridge Racer: Unbounded's base game, DLC's, and Complete Pack were on sale at 66% off, as well.

SimBin are simulation-style racing dev's.
They made GTR series and RACE series.

Ah. As you can tell I'm not a big fan of racing games.

Fake/real edit: Pretty sure one of the Dirt games was a flash yesterday or the day before. I know because I curse out loud whenever a racing game takes a featured sale spot over Alpha Protocol or the neglected Deathspank games... or anything that isn't a racing game.

Only a CAG would people get outraged over the 9% difference between 66 and 75 percents. ;)

Does anyone have opinions on the Daedalic or Pendulo bundles as a whole? Looking at maybe getting one of them, disappointed that the first Edna and Harvey game isn't on steam though. Although I do have other adventure games to play first such as Book of Unwritten Tales so this is more of a longterm question I suppose.

I guess Grimrock is the most popular. Recettear was the most deserving, but as always.. people are idiots. I think current/very recent indie bundle games should be banned from the community choice deals
