Every time I think of racing games somehow I think of Asheskitty now.

I swear of all my Steam friends you probably own the most. Well maybe AnarchyOblivion but that's kind of a given.



^_^ Zoom zoom!

@Motoki
But, Asheskitty doesn't have Test Drive Unlimited 2 on Steam... ;)

@Ashes
Do you have TDU2 outside of Steam?
Also, how's Ridge Racer Unbounded? Any thoughts on it yet?



Well, some quite negative reviews had turned me off to TDU1&2 (including lousy vehicle handling physics) until I decided to give it shot due to recommendations on CAG (mostly/only you I think). But since then it hasn't gotten back down to $5 on steam. Amazon ran TDU2 @ $5 once but I was expecting it's regular appearance on the steam Winter sale. Grr. At this point I might just pick up it up next time it hits $5 on Amazon. There has been very little love for racers this winter sale. I hope it hits Gabe right in the financials.

I have more NFS games off steam than on Steam. Also GRID (non-steam), and Split/Second (Disney, never on Steam). Re-bought Burnout Paradise on Steam. Don't even get started on my PS2 collection...

I'll post more thoughts when I get some time with Ridge Racer. I only played the demo for like 20 min (to verify it wasn't crap) before buying it. As I said kinda interesting, inspired by BP & SS. It wasn't easy at all, two or three full first race attempts only netted me with 9th place. (That's a good thing. I like challenging.)

Don't they usually go through Sunday and end Monday at 1:00 EST?

Looks like this one ends on Saturday, right?



Yeah it's a strange ending time.

Unvarnished opinion time: Little inferno is crap. Don't buy it... ever. It's a not-so-2-deep-4-u morality play about how you shouldn't waste time playing video games (irony, no?). Bundle fodder.


God, that sounds horrible. I just might boycott whatever bundle that turd ends up in.

Just finished Spec Ops. Well worth the $5. It's a little odd doing a story about the horrors of war and then require that you kill literally hundreds of people, but hey.

That's exactly the point - by having the player DO all these HORRIBLE acts, the player FEEL HORRIBLE about it and actually thinks about everything.

Then let's just throw on top of it the entire deconstruction of the military shooter genre and Walker's on-going issues...

How about Spec Ops the Line? Did you get that? Finished that 3 days ago and it's still on my mind.

The choices you make have an effect on you, and you alone, which is the case of most choices in life, whether I run down a random pedestrian or give a homeless man a sandwich isn't going to change the fate of the world, yet so often it does in games. You make a split second choice, sometimes a wrong one, and like the character you have to live with it as it instantly saves.

In the case of the big "decision", you do have a choice; you can do what needs to be done to continue the mission, or you can try and do it the conventional way (the game lets you do this) and inevitably you will fail before making a dent in the attacking force. You will fail, because in this situation of stacked odds, there really is no alternative if you wish to proceed, as much as his squad mate (and you the player) may cling to the belief in the contrary.

There is also an option C, HUGE SPOILER

Spoiler


Anyway, if one has finished the game and wants to read more about the genesis of the game, and lots of little touches which are there that you might not notice, start with this and if you want more there is a list of more material here.


Thanks for the links! I've read one of them before, but it's always enjoyable to see a little more into stories where an obviously large amount of thought and effort went toward. I did enjoy Spec Ops' story, though I suppose the word "enjoy" may not be the most appropriate given the context. I thought the writers had a vision for the game, and surprisingly they were given the means and the funding to see it through. Although the gameplay mechanics are a bit lackluster (I don't really like playing FPS games in general), it's probably the only FPS I'd recommend to my friends. I know someone else earlier compared it to Max Payne 3, but I thought the story had much more scope and ambition than MP3's ever did.

Anyway, good stuff. I heard Hotline Miami has a pretty similar vision in some ways too, albeit more subtle.

I confused Guns of Icarus Online with Air Buccaneers, which was a Greenlight title that came out in early December.

Also, can't decide if I should use one or both of my $5 amazon coupons on Darkness2, Spec Ops or both. Want both but also kind of want to see what other EC2012 titles on on sale this month.

Just catching up with the thread...

These were all flash sales:

Need for Speed Hot Pursuit $4.99 75% off
Need for Speed Undercover $2.49 75% off
Need for Speed Shift $4.99 75% off



Well that sale sure disappeared in a flash! It would be nice if they went on sale again to make up for the early finish the first time.

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



Because a CAG would realize that the difference in the final price between those two discounts is 36%, worth a bit of outrage surely!

They were both in Be Mine 4. Oldschool was in the basic bundle, If you beat the average you received the beta for Online, but not the final product.

That's exactly the point - by having the player DO all these HORRIBLE acts, the player FEEL HORRIBLE about it and actually thinks about everything.

Despite not being a shooter fan, you're making me think that I'd like to play this game...

Definitely give it a try at that price. It's a racing simulator not an arcade racer, it'll feel slower, braking is as important as IRL (as is traction management). And the AA/AFoptions are broken (I had to force from the Nvidia panel) -- road markings were looking pretty bad w/o AF.
