I can't speak for anyone else, but I liked Alyx because she seemed real, not like some typical cliched game chick. But these videos represent her as exactly that: some 'cool' chick. I hope they're not indicative of Alyx in the game.

Valve, you lose at cool. Whoever is making these videos needs to go back to his day job.

They said the price will not exceed US$250 or 25000 yen. The news article probably misunderstood that statement. Nintendo has hinted that the price will be US$199 by telling people to look at their previous console launch prices -- which have been $199.

Yeah I'm really looking forward to the game, but these videos are pretty awful.

Scrapland was made by many of the same people who made Severance: Blade of Darkness. It's a very different setting.

Maybe they packaged 4-6 into DLC7 fearing more backlash.

In any case this one seems (without having tried it) to be much more substantial, and perhaps even worth the price if I wasn't bored stiff with Oblivion.

Hmm, the bad guy in the Dark Messiah clip looks like a clone of the movie version of Sauron ...

If you think Diablo is an RPG, then I guess Hellgate is an RPG. If you think Diablo is.

The more I see of this game the more it looks terribly boring. Running around random maps killing wave after wave of repetitive monsters. I don't see the attraction.

The more I think about it, the more I think that unlocking the game in the middle of E3 was done to crap out the early adopters. Note how it's been almost a week, and neither IGN nor GameSpot have a review up...

I doubt every IGN and Gamespot contributor was at E3 ... It's more likely they don't have a review because there was no publisher to mail out a review copy two weeks before it was released. If game sites have to actually pay for a game, and wait until it's released like the rest of us, their review is generally late. Funny that.

You might not like the game, but clearly plenty of people do. And I think Ritual has faith in it as well.

It's a good game. I don't generally like basic shooters, but Emergence was just fun. People still complaining about the length probably haven't played it. It took me 4 days on and off to finish it, and for $20 that's pretty good ... assuming you judge a game's value by how long it lasts, which you really shouldn't. I don't see how you could finish it in one sitting unless you have no other life commitments at all.

My only complaint is that it's too hard. I had to reload many times to get through certain areas, which is frustrating. Ritual is apparently working on a patch to fix that, so I look forward to playing it again when it's released.

I think it's one of the better shooters around right now. It's definately fun, which is the most important thing. I don't mind the price. It costs less than most DVDs and lasts longer, so I think it's reasonable value for money. I'm not sure about longitivity, though. I think Ritual is getting ahead of themselves listing 9 episodes. 4 or 5 episodes spread over 18 or 24 months, maybe, but I think I'd be bored to death if it went on any longer. It's a standard shooter, after all, and unless they start bending genres and adding really new stuff, it will get old.

What I'm concerned about is that we'll lose the freedom and customisability of online PC gaming. Do you think we'll see the same kind of diverse content if we have to use Microsoft's service? The same customised servers running various mods, and so on? These are genuine questions, because I'm not sure what kind of effect it will have.

It sounds like this will encourage more cross-platform games, and as we know from experience there are very few good cross-platform games. I'm not jumping over the moon about this.

This reads like a fake to me, with all the spelling and grammar errors. And this:

During your interview, Thompson also gives antidotes from his new book, "Out of Harm's Way" (Tyndale House Publishers).

Antidotes?

The whole series is simplistic arcade rubbish, console or not.

So does this mean Steam no longer requires you to make a connection with their server everytime you just want to launch a single player game?

I see this mentioned again and again, but I don't know why. If Steam can't connect for some reason, it gives you the option of loading in 'offline mode'. And as long as all the games are properly downloaded (i.e. the last time you loaded Steam you didn't close it down during the download process) you will able to play all the single player games.

The only reason I can think of why people don't know this is because they actually do have a permanent internet connection and therefore never saw the 'offline mode' option. And that's really kind of funny.

It might be a deal with a publisher or something like that, but it's advertising as much as anything. Downloading all that data is a deterrent to online distribution, so they give all potential customers plenty of chance to get ready without feeling like they've 'missed out' because their connection isn't fast enough. Let's face it, the ability to have the game ready to go as soon as it's released and be able to play it at the same time as everyone else is an effective way to hype the game.

Remember, games sell by far the highest number of copies in the first week of release, in no small part due to hype. Why would Valve effectively stagger the release for their customers and kill that anticipation?

Yeah, Deep Shadows did Boiling Point. They mentioned a couple of months ago that they're working on a sequel, so maybe this is it. Let's hope they're able to finish this one. I assume they're still working on Precursors as well ...
