Can someone objectively tell me how many of the 5 x-com games are actually worth playing? Obviously the first game is a gem, but it's not much of a combo pack if it's one good game and 4 you will never touch.

The metacritic score is non-existent for all of them for some reason.

News Comments > New Ghost Recon & Rainbow Six This Year?
17. Re: New Ghost Recon & Rainbow Six This Year? Jan 7, 2009, 16:10 Veinman
 
Vegas 2 got a "High Stakes" mode patched in that restored a lot of the old style. You could no longer see around corners when in cover and your health did not regenerate. I don't remember what else it changed. Sadly they didn't enable it for Terrorist Hunt.

But the fact that they did that can only be seen as promising, since they'd surely keep that ability in a new game. Hopefully?

They had said that Rainbow would be re-tooled, so I wasn't expecting one this year. But I'm definitely interested.

I played the 360 version at PAX. It was by far the least fun game I checked out. I'm surprised that there even is a pc version, unless they are just spraying wide in hopes of making their money back.

I much prefer Battlefield 1942 over Tribes, any day. I felt it brought a lot more to the table, and was simply more fun.

What makes it so great far as MP goes, compared to say UT, Q1?

It's nothing like those. Think more of a precursor to the Battlefield series. You run around large landscapes, grabbing flags, killing people, etc. You can ski down hills, jetpack, drive vehicles (that control like shit, imo). It can be a lot of fun, but is about as noob-friendly as Counter-Strike.

One thing I left out... you could actually set up defenses in your base. I always found that to be fun.

If they had more power, they'd just fill that up too and still chug. It would just be more awesome chugging.

With an ATi card being optional... I'm guessing the default is onboard video. Yuck.

I find it good background music when I don't want to really pay attention to what I'm listening to. It's pretty much the same with any songs with no lyrics for me.

This is my second-favorite RPG, after Fallout 2. I regularly listen to the soundtrack (you can download it off Sierra's website, at least you used to be able to). It's just great.

Saints Row 2 is a fantastic game and I really hope the PC version does well. It's much more fun than GTA IV.

I would hate to work for them. They send a clear message to their employees- Bust your ass for us, and if you give us a flop, you are out the door.

Fuck that.

Just created my account and grabbed them. I never finished Steel Sky before, and have never played Temptress.

I would consider picking up BF2 since it's so cheap now, but I am wary about this game being abandoned and left to the cheaters.

Apparently parents in Australia must be as clueless as they are here in the U.S., and couldn't possibly decide for themselves what their kids should play.

I love seeing EA do anything that doesn't have a number at the end of the title.

Just bought Space Rangers 2. How can you not? It's a fantastic game, worth the original asking price of $40.
