Is there really a point to getting DR2 and DR2 OTR? Isn't OTR the same as DR2 but with a bunch of extras?

You play as a different character and the story is different as a result. That's pretty much it as far as I know (though feel free to correct me anyone). From what I've read, OTR is the superior game.

Also really tempted by Lost Planet 2, :/ but man I wish GMG had the first lost planet. It's the superior game IMO.

They're different games with different story lines. I liked OTR better, as it doesn't have the time restrictions that DR2 had. Both are pretty solid though.

Oh that's tempting. I like the no time restriction. That always annoyed me.

Alt-Tabbing can be a pain but, for me, I just use my tablet to look stuff up when I don't want to risk tabbing out. And a lot of games (at least the ones I play) have pretty detailed Wikis with pictures, maps, etc.


I like the games that have their own Wikia pages, but they're so loaded with adcrap that accessing them in the Steam overlay browser can be a chore. Having extra RAM helps.

a way to get my Civ II fix when playing the game was impractical.


Like in the throne room, amirite?

I have four shelves of my bookshelf in the gameroom stacked with strategy guides... And I have no idea why. I collect them and rarely ever use them. Le sigh.

Def in for Lost Planet 2 at GMG. $8 is the lowest it's been for a Steam copy.

Any opinions on Gateways? Reading through the game's Steam discussion boards, it seems to be a decent puzzle platformer. Downloading the demo now to see if I should bite.

I was so close to buying it with my credit until I looked at the Steam game page and saw the Steam Enhanced red warning bar. Bummer.

Lost Planet 2 isn't worth it.

DR2 OTR changes the story, makes the game easier, cuts one of the better bosses, includes a sandbox mode and minigames.

FWIW, the other game by the Gateways dev is Adventures of Shuggy, which is a solid platformer but has been on sale a few times, in bundles, and free on IGN Prime.

Dark Void Zero uses Securom!?

I played the demo this week and didn't enjoy it. It does eventually get to shrinking mechanics, but it's quite Portal: The Flash Version. I didn't like the movement and jumping feel of this, or Shuggy's either for that matter.

Edit: HA! GMG's base price for LP2 is $40 dollars! $40! Not this time, Capcom.

Yeah I noticed that too (via the big red warning bar from Enhanced Steam). I got it anyway, since I had the GMG credit. Maybe it'll get patched out some day ;)

It's worth a play for a buck, DRM or not. I played it through Void, just found out that's over!

Got a scare a while ago. I activated Lost PLanet 2 key in steam but it didnt show in my game list. Had to restart steam twice before it showed up.

They're different games with different story lines. I liked OTR better, as it doesn't have the time restrictions that DR2 had. Both are pretty solid though.


First, there are still time limits on the missions, and if you miss the key missions, you still fail the game and have to reload. It happened to me and a friend several times. jshackles might be referring to the fact that there is no overall 72-hour time limit, but that was really more of an end-game timer because if you didn't do the key missions within their specified timeframes in DR2, you still failed the game and the overall time limit didn't matter. I can't confirm or deny that DR2 OTR doesn't have the 72-hour time limit, though, as I don't remember.

Second, I played the SHIT out of DR2, and went into OTR hoping the story would be different. I am about a third of the way through and the story is basically identical to DR2, with even the exact same cutscene dialogue from characters who are not Chuck/Frank. So far, I have done the same things, fought the same bosses, in the same order as DR2. They are even in the same fuckin places (survivors who must be rescued are in the same places as well). I was really disappointed by that.

I liked DR2 better, at least so far, because it felt more insidious than OTR, which has more levity. Not to say that DR2 isn't silly, because it purposefully is, but it is also a very violent game with some seriously evil bastards in it. OTR feels a lot more like a romp, and tonally I just preferred DR2.

I was referring to the addition of the "sandbox" mode they added to DR2 OTR, where you are free to explore, not worry about missions, and just have fun bashing zombies endlessly. I never completed the missions in DR2: OTR, but I probably put 10-15 hours into sandbox mode on the Xbox 360 version.

The only guide I've ever bought was for FFTactics & it was very helpful.

I think that game would be impossible to 100% without resorting to a guide, lol. Deep Dungeon...

In for $8 Lost Planet 2, if only to continue to story from the first game. Still cheaper than console!

If you're a fan of the Lego games and of LOTR, it's hard to go wrong with that one. I've put 25 hours into it and still only at about 75% completion. For $8 it's a steal.

Last SF I played was on the PS2... I think it Was Alfa or Zero (correct me if I'm wrong)... and I can't remember those being great... but I loved SF2 on SNES
