Oh Batman Arkham Asylum!

Oh, it still needs GFWL. Pass.

(Hate that shit.)
It's very unlikely that they will drop GFWL at any time. You really shouldn't skip any of the Batman games because of GFWL, these games are absolutely amazing and worth of "overlooking" the GFWL crap.
Besides, it seems to work better in Asylum than in Arkham City, for whatever reason. That said, I didn't have any problems with GFWL playing through Asylum & City, it signs you in automatically and then doesn't bother you again.
I'm more annoyed with the way Darksiders II handles similar stuff, where it wants me to sign up for a useless account at the beginning of the game every time which I happily cancel every time, but I get re-asked again and again. This is annoying as it takes a lot of time to get rid of the dialog again (and the dialog to show up in the first place), for whatever reason. GFWL on the other hand operates mainly in the background and won't bother you again if you don't invoke it (if everything goes right).

I loved Darksiders. It was one of my favorite games the year it came out, was a much needed niche filler. I didn't bother with Darksiders 2 though.
Darksiders II is actually pretty great, you should definitely give it a try! I started the game with mixed feelings based on ... what exactly, I can't tell for sure, mediocre reviews? But the game really dragged me in right from the start. Both Darksiders I and II are very good games. Don't let someone tell you otherwise and go play DS2

News Comments > Ships Ahoy - Dead Space 3
11. Re: Ships Ahoy - Dead Space 3 Feb 6, 2013, 03:51 coldcut
 
Funny how (for me) games not appearing on Steam always come as a surprise. This game is a pass for me for many reasons:
- Origin
- I still didn't finish the first Dead Space, although I liked it, but the horribly fixed FOV made me nauseous after a relatively short time of playing. Even worse than in Warhammer: Space Marines.
- Microtransactions ... although probably not needed to play and finish the game, I don't support the concept behind this

But that doesn't really matter as I got too many games to play in my backlog. Recently enjoyed Arkham Asylum a hell lot, and currently having a blast in Darksiders II. Looking forward to playing Arkham City soon and would love for a Darksiders III, but that is not really likely at this point, unfortunately.

Forgot to mention this game with the HD texture pack added= O...M...G! The game looks amazing!
Additionally, the sound is superb. Warp radio and especially Ninjatune radio (hence my name ) blew me away. Top notch.

Ya, i'm in germania myself. Couldnt even install the HD texture pack....so i did what i always do....VPN'd to america, unlocked and bought what i wanted (i have an american cc and also american address so maybe you can only grab the texture pack).
Yes, I got a similar method to circumvent German "low violence" versions, I let a "good friend" from UK gift me the games. The HD pack was no problem as I could just install it via Steam.
Unfortunately, this doesn't work for DLC as these cannot be gifted

Unfortunately, none of the DLC is available for purchase in Germany via Steam only the two latest "Skin/Model packs" are available

Would love to play more of this, I think this game was really amazing, and the story got pretty intense later in the game.

It's even more funny if you think about the fact that their first successful game was created with pirated software

Great news. I also thought I wouldn't like the third one, and I didn't touch it at all until recently. But then I played through the whole game in about two sessions, and I liked it a great deal. The only downside was that it was too short and too linear, even the monsters are fixed, there are no random encounters.

These guys also released free DLC I think for christmas, adding a new mini-episode, which was quite cool, but kind of short too.

I think they could have done a lot more with the game. Many enemy types only appeared a handful of times, then the next set of enemies appeared. With this announcement, here's hoping that the fourth installment will be just as good as I hope it will be

It's definitely worth checking out the Steam Workshop content for this game. Some levels offer quite an improvement in the graphics as well as some gameplay mechanics. Just check out the highest ranked maps, you won't be disappointed.

One of my favorite campaigns is The Tomb of Zarthos.

News Comments > Indie Royale Snow Storm Bundle
5. Re: Indie Royale Snow Storm Bundle Jan 17, 2013, 04:39 coldcut
 
I bought a lot of Indie bundles in the past, but recently, not a single one. Reason being - I am only speaking for myself of course - the packs have one outstanding title and a lot of fillers. Those outstanding games are generally a bit older, so by the time the Indie pack comes out, I already own those (or at least those I was interested in) and bought them shortly after release for full price. So, no need to purchase the bundle just for the sake of owning games I never gonna touch (too many of those in my Steam library already)

Sadly, there wasn't that much stuff which appealed to me in recent bundles.

10000000 is on steam, and I've heard good things about it. I guess for $4, I'll give it a shot...
You might want to check the steam community forums, there are discussions about it being originally a mobile game. I also considered buying it, being a sucker for "match 3" myself, but these discussions made me hesitate. I'll wait for some more reviews.

Additionally, the name "Akaneiro" invokes some resemblence to "Daikatana" for whatever reason - but this time, it seems that American McGee is (trying to) make us his b*tch with the 100% "complete" nonsense. Will carefully watch this release.

Thought the first one was pretty great. Still haven't loaded up the second yet though.
The second one should be even better (and longer, for that matter). Unfortunately I haven't come to start the first game yet, as the queue of games to play is just too big for me. Right now I'm having a blast playing through The Book of Unwritten Tales, which is for me one of the best adventures in recent times (if you are into that kind of jokes), and the second one is already waiting for me in my GoG library.

Daedalic Entertainment is really an amazing developer, they are so close to their fans, they make a lot of stuff with and about them. The boss of Daedalic, Poki (the one who sings the opening song) made a duet of that song with a famous German Let's Player (Gronkh), and they even included the full Let's Play through two of their previous games (Edna breaks out and Harveys new eyes) of Gronkh on the newly released special edition game DVDs. That's hilarious and amazing too, in my opinion, I've never seen a developer so close to their fans.

Anyone play this yet? How does it compare to the Blackwell series, Gemini Rue or Resonance?
Preordered it some weeks ago, but haven't been able to play it yesterday. I hope and assume it's in the spirit of these games, which I all played through and loved

3. Re: Second Antharion Kickstarter Dec 1, 2012, 15:21 coldcut
 
It's kind of funny, I don't know if they added some money from the previous Kickstarter, or the ~250 people really backed about 25$ in average. This seems quite a lot to me, for this kind of game. From looking at the screenshots, I can immediately tell that I don't like the over-cartoony art style of the game. If they want to recapture the feel of the games the are aiming at (Wizardry, Ultima, Pool of Radiance - one of my favorite 'old-school' RPGs), those were not cartoony at all, this just does not fit in my opinion.

News Comments > Black Ops II Patch Increases FOV
9. Re: Black Ops II Patch Increases FOV Nov 22, 2012, 14:04 coldcut
 
Correct FOV has nothing to do with screen size, but depends on viewer's distance to the screen roughly because of peripheral vision (in addition, some people perceive this differently and might need slight adjustments to not get dizzy).

A good explanation is in this great tutorial video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=blZUao2jTGA
