I'm not into space sims like Freespace. I need RPG elements. Basically, I'll accept nothing other than a game like Freelancer. Very frustrating that we have yet to get a game(a good game) similar to it.

I'm happy with no more Freelancer. If I'm playing a space flight sim...it better support a flightstick and not have pre-programmed 'maneuvers'.

I'm actually surprised and sad that it didn't make the goal.

Even a look at their customization options video for building your ship is very impressive.

Woot! SR3 back on sale! Go go go!


I am really really enjoying that game. I was a bit reluctant at first since I don't really like GTA very much, but SR3 really won me over with its over-the-top wackiness. The wrestling moves alone have made it worthwhile...

I'm not sure Sword of the Stars 2 will ever be finished. They release two patches a week and have been doing so since the game's release. Either the game was still pre-alpha or they keep breaking stuff with each patch. Probably both.

No...it's not that they break stuff with each patch(not that this hasn't happened). It's just that the game was a lot less further along than people imagined. I've been monitoring the Steam and Kerberos forums and watching the patch notes. The patch notes have changed in nature over the past few months. A lot less crash fixes and now adding things like advanced AI code into the game.

Since I picked it up for $7 at a past sale, I'm just going to wait a few more months before I install it(hopefully it gets the all clear by then). I have a ton of stuff to play right now anyway.

I'm not sure what what pre-alpha even means in this case, but the game was no where near beta on release. What we were seeing, IMO, are patch notes that game devs would use amongst themselves when developing a game, not stuff that you'd show beta testers or end users. I think the only reason those patches got pushed to live was to give disgruntled buyers some indication that progress was being made.

I think it will be finished...just not for a few more months.

Good news for me. I'm currently running Ubuntu 12.04 as my only operating system. I also have a huge library of Steam games that I'm currently not using as per the previous sentence.

Perhaps I missed something...but why would you have a huge library of Steam games and still be running only Linux?

So High Moon Studios is making both a Deadpool AND Hit Monkey game? Interesting. Probably would have made more sense to just put Hit Monkey into the Deadpool game, since the two characters have crossed paths before.

True...but I'm still enthused to see a new Marvel game with no Wolverine in it. And if they can keep the feel and theme of the character consistent through it, I'm buying for sure.

I'm going to buy the Avernum Bundle and Grimrock.

I'll also pick up Endless Space if it hits 50% off.

Saint's Row the Third better win that 75% discount vote! Or there will be violent physical assaults on everyone in my Steam friends list.

It's actually free entirely for current Hard Reset owners. I bought Hard Reset during the Christmas sale last year to get the achievement for it, and then beat it and forgot about it. But I'm going to reinstall now to try this DLC out.
How did you like the original game? I was considering picking this up next time it went on sale.

With the Extended Edition DLC plus the free arena modes and other updates that they added after release, I can confidently say that it is a very worthwhile game.

It's not a tactical shooter and it plays like a more intense version of Serious Sam BFE(with much cooler weapons IMO).

People complained that the variety of enemies was insufficient, but I thought that the game did a good job of making encounters intense no matter what you were facing by having enemies that were either too numerous or too tough to simply gun down without using the environment and or maneuvering with some forethought.

YMMV but Flying Wild Hog did a great job on this game and I'd like to see what they could do with a bit more funding and larger staff compliment.

I totally agree with you there. Stop giving Uwe Boll and people of the same mindset access to game IP. Haven't we suffered through enough really horrible game movies such as Mario, Wing Commander, Street Fighter, Far Cry, Doom, Mortal Kombat, Max Payne, and battleship. The list goes on.

If you are going to do a film based on a movie you better understand the source material.

The first Mortal Kombat wasn't too horrible, at least I felt it was better than the other ones you listed.

I thought though that there was one decent game->movie remake made, I just forget what.

-EDIT-
After looking through a list on Wikipedia... yeh I can't find a game->movie that was really good.

You can't find one because games and movies are completely different entertainment experiences. The things that make games great are not the same things that make movies great.

Books to movies? Sure!

Games to movies? Not so much...

The even worse part is that even when you find something in a game that would be decent movie material, the director gets all up in arms with creative license and changes the stuff that would translate well anyway.

I used to fear the day these sales would arrive, but no more! I have controlled my spending habits.

By "controlled my spending habits" I mean I've bought everything I could possibly want already....and some stuff I probably don't want.

Yeah!!!! We should all just...wait...what?

It's a $20 (actually $10 now) Source indie shooter/RPG with sandbox co-op gameplay made by a group of 4-5 foreigners (so you knew the story/dialog was going to be a mess)... Not sure how anybody could go into that expecting the best game of all time. Too ambitious and very rough around the edges, but I still thought it was a lot of fun for what it was when I bought it day one.

Yeah. It's not a masterpiece by any means, but it isn't a bad first effort. Worth $10. It would be nice if some other dev team would work with these guys to re-release it with a lot more polish and better translation.

You think a small indie could put out a Just Cause 2 or Skyrim? I'd like to see the 15-man team that could manage that.
Hehe, perfect examples ... i dont like the Just Cause games and Bethesda RPGs i find boring since "Arena"

But when i look at a RPG like "The Witcher", with very high production values, but made for a considerably small budget ... i dont need the majors to get games, which play AND look well. Really, Ubi and EA and ActiBlizz can go to hell. Video gaming will not only survive, but profit from this change in the long run.

CD Projekt is subsidized by GOG. You think any other 'small' developer could put out a game like The Witcher 2 and happily ignore the backing of a publisher? Keep dreaming. Why do you think you haven't seen anything close to TW2 from any other indy studios???

And lest you forget, CD Projekt STILL went to a publisher for distribution. So regardless of you not liking Skyrim or Just Cause 2, you'd get nothing but small indie games without publishers.

Also, since you don't represent the majority of the gaming population, you might take note that some of us like huge open-world games. Not because they are great RPGs, but because they are fun to explore and mess around in as you see fit.

I wouldn't substitute The Witcher 2 for Skyrim and vice versa. They are completely different gaming experiences. Just like I wouldn't substitute Deus Ex:HR for Just Cause 2.

So, most publishers are really struggling these days, and once the COD and WoW fascination wears off in a couple of years, Acti-Blizz will be too.
Good to hear. THIS part of the industry i gladly like to go away and vanish for good.

No you actually wouldn't. Unless you are one of those people who ONLY play small indie games.

Most of the popular games that are both good and top quality could not be produced without the help of a publisher. Period.

Yeah something is going to give either way here.

I can't see Steam simply patching itself to allow you to rebundle your game and sell it. Although it is very possible to do on the platform, I can't see publishers being very happy campers about it and that is where the problems will begin.

I revised the Facebook PR page to reflect honesty and integrity:

Thanks again to in-house marketing bloggers for pretend outpouring of support, but we still need to make some cash back on this. Just a reminder that the PC version of PROTOTYPE 2 is indeed a console port mess, but still coming on July 24th as planned, but please understand that updates/posts to Prototype 2 and Facebook over the next few years may be a bit light as we have almost no staff and won't be supporting the game after today.

Have you actually looked at their FB page? There are a shitload of Prototype fans.

The other stuff is definitely true though, because they didn't even really support the first game on PC.

Yeah...not one patch to this day.

Someone else did the port though, didn't they? I'm hoping it doesn't need patching but I'm not buying day one just in case.
