Brits, like most Europeans take the opposite view: sex is normal and natural, gratuitous violence is to be abhorred.


You sorely underestimate British prudishness. We're not very European.

I always laugh when the Europeans have problems with violence/Americans have problems with boobs things comes up. Europeans in general are hardly turning away the zillion violent entertainment products produced each year. They are fine with both. They get the gore and boobies. Which might explain that tacky Dead Island statue.

Just a quick bit: Played a bit of Leviathan: Warships iOS this morning. It's ok. Not sure $5 is the right range. But I also bought it on Steam for $9.99. The Steam version, too, is ok.

1. I think the single player is hard as hell and doesn't hand-hold. Mission 1 out of the tutorial I got whooped. Like big time. Then I figured out my arcs and my speed/momentum and things clicked a little better.
2. I also think they should have done a better job explaining the use/movement of these ships.
3. I think the multiplayer has some serious promise.
4. I think the customization options for your fleet should have been gone over. There is A LOT of information on that screen to figure out. Some I'll tinker with to figure out, some is frustrating.
5. Painless registering of my account through them. The default server is EU so if you're not paying attention that might catch you.

I would recommend waiting on a sale for both of them at launch. I think both versions show great promise but right now it just feels a bit clunky.


P.S. Apparently the game has temporarily been pulled due to a MP bug on the iOS.


(I'm going to duplicate this post on the other forum in case they are interested)

______________________________________________________________________

I will also admit to being disappointed on my High graphics detail and it just doesn't scream good graphics, even on my PC. Alot of the edges were jaggedy (especially landmasses and ships). I suppose I could force smoothing and the like but I thought it'd be pretty out of the box you know?

I will say the water effects look WAY better on the PC but the changing of the graphics on my PC still has the jaggedy rocks. I wish I knew how to do pics on my iPad so I could show a comparison.

Leviathan looks like something I'd enjoy. I'd be more likely to pick it up if it was on the Humble Store and gave me a Steam code and Android version the way Kairo does. I hope to see more of that.

thoughts on the Dirt franchise pack? that is lot of racing for only $17 and I seem to have a lack of racing games on my game collection. Now that I think about it, the last racing sim I bought/played was Gran Turismo 4 on the PS2

I haven't actually played all of them yet, but most people say to avoid Dirt Showdown, and you don't really need all of the games. I think just buying one Dirt 2 or Dirt 3 should suffice. I hated Gymkhana in Dirt 3, so you might want to research it a bit and factor that into your decision.

Dirt 2 is fucking awesome, at definite buy at $5
Dirt 3 is also really good, I strongly recommend it at $8.50
Dirt Showdown is Dirt in name only, the gameplay is much much different. It's been slammed by Critics and Dirt fans alike. (That said there are some people who like it.) I don't own it so I can't say more. I might pick it up when it hits $5.

Thanks Ikeda, I found the PC vs iPad screenshots interesting

I also noticed Bioshock 1 now has a View Stats page that games with achievements usually get. When I was replaying Bioshock 2 a few weeks ago, I noticed it had the View Stats page at the time, but it was blank at the time.

GMG has had better Dirt deals recently after the 20% coupon than Steam's current individual prices. The pack is a pretty good deal, though. I got Dirt 3 on GMG on 3/28 for $6.80 and Dirt Showdown on 4/13 for $6. They both activated on Steam.
