Anybody know what DRM the Sword of the Stars collection that's 2.50 on GamersGate right now uses?

It's listed as "Other."

Hoping it's Steam and unlabeled, but not holding my breath.

I've actually played it. It is just plain awful i.e. something I'm sure Motoki would be happy to get :D


I guess they had to come up with something after water-boarding was stopped.

It's a paradox game. Few (if any) paradox games sold through Gamersgate are steam versions. So I would guess that it's not steam. Can't say with 100% certainty, but I really doubt it.

Amazon isn't really a good example for this though. Their deals are poorly advertised and unless you frequent a forum or community with Tony as a member then you might miss out on a lot of their deals.

In the digital world I think Humble Bundle definitely has a higher profile than Amazon even and even if you just consider HiB, I think the crossover is pretty big there.

Some devs can get past the indie bundle devaluation, but even with games like Giana Sisters there's a ton of people waiting for it to be bundled.

I don't think indie games are worthless and I think even the cheapest ass gamer would happily play full price if it's a great game they enjoy, but for those without a strong interest in a game, it's more of a wait and see approach even when it's on sale.



This. All of it. 100%

Spoiler
In a sane world, no. Indie games should be bundled and given away with real games like peanuts at a restaurant.

Actually, I'll buy an indie game on release that tickles my fancy. HM was THAT good. Exceed too. Magical Diary I bought too.



The only place I've gotten free peanuts is a on a plane.

Did I just find a new Motoki game?



That's been featured at the top of the GG offers page for *days*. I guess we know who isn't a GG glitchstalker. ^_~

GG is almost always spot on on it's DRM descriptions; it it don't say it's steam, it's not steam. The recent exception I can think of is Vanguard Princess is actually DRM-FREE, DRM still says other, IIRC.

Do you realize that, quite literally, every modern shump on PC that is not MAME emulated is either fanmade, Sine Mora, or Jamestown? It isn't like Touhou, Ether Vapor, Exceed, Blue Wish, and the Gundemonium games aren't doujin works. Hydorah too. That's like telling me to give you a list of hack and slash action games but then telling me "No fan works or Devil May Cry games please."

If you at ALL like shumps in any meaningful way then you have an Xbox 360 or at least access to one, or you have MAME and are emulating a whole suite of them. If you don't, you still won't like SM because it's gimmicky, slow-paced, poorly balanced crap.

"Just being a curmudgeon" is a good line though. I'll have to save it for the next time people go into a reflexive Call of Duty hatred refrain.



I'LL DEAL WITH YOU LATER FLOWETTE.

Granted, if their art guys got behind a shump that had some better design to it, I'd be a much bigger fan.



1. yikes, so when you previously stated "a lot better" you were essentially referring to a bunch of rough amateur pc games that fundamentally play like CAVE/Treasure games (just way worse). No thanks.

2. your example using DMC is not really apt. If someone doesn't want to play DMC, but still wants something that wasn't created by a bunch of hacks (sorry), they can at least play Bayonetta, God of War, Castlevania Lords of Shadow, etc.

3. and your final point about buying a console - obviously someone can buy a 360 :roll:

it's okay to hate things, I was just wondering if you had any meaningful game suggestions.
fate marches with us!!!

Noticed Brutal Legend's promo materials STILL disguise the RTS aspects. Kinda odd considering they are free of EA's yolk. I GUESS SCHAFER STILL WANTS TO LISTEN TO THE RICH PUBLISHERS.

So apparently you haven't played the games I recommended. Nor have you played Crimzon Clover (Still probably the finest shump I have ever played.), Suguri, Sora, Acceleration of Suguri... Hydorah and Satazius and Hitogata Happa are trying to be Cave games? This is absolutely news to me.

Also, "rough amateur pc games that fundamentally play like CAVE/Treasure games (just way worse)." That's Sine Mora. To a T.

On a related note, "like Treasure games?" They have made two shumps, as far as I remember: Radiant Silvergun and Ikaruga. And those two could not possibly be more different from each other if memory serves. Except for Exceed 2 ripping off Ikaruga wholesale I find it weird to suggest that Treasure has a defined style.

My point about DMC is absolutely apt because not a single game you mentioned on that list has hit PC.

Also I cannot believe you are causing me to defend indie games. I hate you i hate you i hate yoooooooooou.

If they could only get the rights to some of the old Star Trek games..... Elite Force,....Armada, ...Bridge Commander


I'd add Birth of the Federation and the Starfleet Command games to the list, too. Those would pretty much all be insta-buys for me.

Thanks for the update. I haven't heard anything about this title, though the screen shots imply that it has, at the very least, competent visuals. I don't believe I've seen any CAG's discuss it, though - How is the gameplay?

For those who ordered the Crazy Machine Bundle from the Indie Store:

My keys for Crazt Machines 1.5 and Crazy Machines weren't showing (Steam keys for Crazy Machines 2 and Crazy Machines Elements did show up). So I sent an email, this is the reponse I got back:

The serial numbers for those products are out of stock. Do you mind waiting a couple of days till we receive other keys from the publishers? If not, in alternative, we can offer you two of these other Steam games at your choice, instead of the two Crazy Machines games:


Helldorado

Mata Hari

Alter Ego

Cargo! The Request For Gravity

The Whispered world.


I told them I didn't mind waiting, and that I would post the email here to hopefully cut down on any duplicate emails asking the same question. Just an FYI.

Anyone who wants a 72-Hour guest pass to The Secret World, just PM me your email.

Good to see. I'm hoping Delver's Drop gets theirs as well. Although that will get made regardless of their Kickstarter. Here's their Greenlight page for Steam so that will hopefully get a couple extra votes.
