I'm sure it'll be in a bundle eventually. While it looked appealing to me I've heard it's a bit unpolished and can be a bit of a grindfest. Essentially it's a loot farming game with crafting and such.

This is what everybody said on the last day of the Xmas sale when I asked about it.

Then everybody went out and bought it anyway.

'cept me.

But did they actually play it or is it just sitting in their library?

Is it bad that I really want Restaurant Empire II?

EDIT: 1 friend already owns this game: Motoki. So no.

I have it too, bought it on amazon lol. (guess I should buy the steam version)

I played it when it was on sale last time. Got my friends to get it too. Its REAL bad. I will never touch it again. I thought it was going to play like Secret of Mana or something. Its nothing like that. Real shallow gameplay. Terrible.

It just depends, some people love it, some don't. It is definitely a niche title.

There are plenty of reviews all over, check out the user comments here:

and there are several more, most either love it or hate it.

A lot of the players that did not like the game were expecting Wanderlust: Rebirth to be something different than what they got, or simply didn't spend enough time getting to the harder difficulties, as what I suspect happened with JakeNome. The game takes a turn for the better once you hit Chapter 6/7.

That seems sort of analogous to the "Final Fantasy XIII really opens up about 25 hours in" argument.

Really if you aren't enjoying it to 6, why keep playing? Like I said, it is definitely one of those titles you either love or hate, people usually don't fall in the middle. Could always try the free demo on the website.

I got it for $4.76 back in December from GMG after a coupon. Except for that I don't believe it's been cheaper. You can use one of the price trackers asheskitty advertises to double check.

Ooh, I hadn't noticed Wanderlust was on a weeklong sale. I just thought we were having a "what do you think of [this game]?" chat. :lol:

Cool.

I feel in the mood to make a mistake. Who's with me?

I said WHO'S WITH M- hmmm, I really should try that demo.

Thanks for the answers! Tried the demo of Wanderlust for about 20 minutes. Is... weird. I really want to like it, but is not what I was expecting. When fighting, it doesn't seems you're hitting something... and controls are a bit clunky. The interface is weird too.

Maybe I should give it another shot, but I really don't want to even think about playing it again soon.

I'll wait for a bundle.

Crysis 3 doesn't perform too badly on my GTX 650, well at least the beta doesn't.

if crysis 3 would use directX 10 technically it would run better than on the xbox.

I just saw Fallout Collection was on sale!. I loved Fallout 2, but never played FO1/FO:T (don't know why). I'm thinking about getting them on Steam, but seems you have to do some work to get it working right. (high res, color problems...).

The GOG version are better?
