I can't wait for Brutal Legend to hit Steam! I've never played it before but have really wanted to try it. Double Fine is awesome for doing this, although I'm not sure how well it will sell at this point.


WHOA. I wasn't expecting that news - I'm quite excited at the prospect of having Brutal Legend in my Steam Library. I missed out on the game because I didn't have a current-gen console. This announcement remedies that issue.

What does that leave, Tim Schafer fans, Grim Fandango?


There was an ugly trophy bug,sound issues, and save game corruption glitches for the PSN version, Double fine made a patch to fix it, but Sony (and some claim EA) refused to release it unless it was purchasable DLC (just like they did with FrozenByte and their Trine patch they had to charge $1 for). Hope to see the game proper on PC. I've passed on this game 3 times at a $5 price point because it sounded like more frustration then it was worth.

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

I had fun with Brutal Legend but I wish it didn't have that silly strategy component. I like to think it would have been one of my favorite games of all time if it was just a straight up metal themed, open-world, third person hack 'n slash game.

Brutal Legend was Airmech or Herzog Zwei. The campaign was largely a long tutorial/practice mode for the vs. AI or the online MP, and the online was full of silly exploits and tricks that rendered it not particularly fun or balanced.

Any mention of Herzog Zwei deserves some extra attention.

All right, back to the Steam-specific stuff.

That said, the Schafer dialogue is there, and Jack Black, Tim Curry, and Jennifer Hale all turn in great performances alongside actual metal icons.

But as a hack and slash, it's terrible. As a competitive multiplayer game, it's terrible. As a geeky love letter to metal, it's absolutely amazing. As a fun ride with friends who don't know or don't use the infinites or the exploits, it's quite nice. If it actually DOES hit PC with a couple of tweaks here and there (Maybe a better save system. No preorder crap or DLC crap locked away.) I'll be in line for it


Pretty much this in a nutshell.

That would have been awesome! The strategy thing was a let down to me also when that was revealed.

Or, imagine if it had Zelda elements as well. :drool:

I played the demo on the 360 around the time came out. It ended too fast.

Like has been said, the gameplay isn't great. It's totally functional from what I played and still fun though, and you're not really playing the game for its technical prowess.

I'd grab it for $5.

I've stared at this game in so many discount bins wanting it, finally I can play it on the PC where it belongs.

Been wanting to try this so its good news. Heard pretty mixed opinions and it seems like most people agree that Chivalry is a better Medieval combat game, but I wasnt too crazy about it when I played during the free weekend. Looking forward to trying this on the 6th

I guess that's what I get for buying the last paradox 2012 bundle mainly for this game. :roll:

I know right! I wasnt able to get the Paradox bundle but was working on a trade with someone for when their keys arrived. Guess thats not necessary anymore

I'm assuming this will pretty much destroy any hopes of me being able to sell the War of the Roses keys from that Paradox pack. Should have tried to sell them right away instead of waiting for the initial wave of keys to clear out.

Nice to know that I can soon play War of the Roses without supporting people who have wholly ripped-off Mount & Blade.

Did any of you read the article? The free to play version is seriously gimped. No unlocks, only default loadouts, and xp/gold at half the normal rate.

I haven't tried the game yet but that really sounds more like an extended demo than anything.

I was thinking the same thing.. I doubt they'd call it a "trial" version without some major restrictions.

Looks like Cryostasis & UFO: Afterlight have been removed from the store. Speculation over on SPUF is that 1C has lost the rights to distribute these games. I'm glad that I already own both because of bundles. But now I'm starting to question my recent policy of avoiding bundles with a lot of games from 1C because of the promised 1C bundle from Amazon. By the time Amazon actually gets that bundle up & running, 1C will have lost the rights to half their game library.

Yeah, I did read the article, but chances are I wouldnt have played the game long enough to unlock that stuff anyway, and I would have paid for it to boot. At least now I can play for free and see if its something that will really grab my attention, and if so then I can pony up the dough for the full experience

I'm pretty sure I saw UFO Afterlight in Walmart the other dsy for $40. I had to laugh about that.

Also, Blood Bowl Chaos Edition is $9.89 thru Gamestop right now, activates on Steam.

On the plus side, this is my chance to trade Cryostasis for skyram!

Right, and I was pointing it out to the others who saw it as a bad thing. Sounds right up your alley, but the rest of the responses weren't so optimistic. But I guess if the game is as bad as many people seem to be saying, it hardly matters one way or the other does it.

I don't care how bad it is, but if people dont choose to play as Yorkshire/the white rose/House of York then I'll start de-friending!

This only serves to remind me of what a disgustingly large number of games I have. I had to check in a panic I had Cryostasis because I couldn't remember if I'd gotten it or not. And then found out I also owned UFO: Afterlight, which I didn't even realize was a thing that existed.

This makes me think I (and perhaps this thread) needs to participate in "Four in February." You pick 4 games, either started or not, and create an unbreakable vow to the ancient gods promise to finish them before March.

I'm down for a "four in February" type thing. If you need someone to pick your games and get this started I gladly will. I could also send you a list of my backlog so we can get this goin.

Hey man, not trying to bite on your idea but I created a 4 for February thread so that people could pair up and get this started
