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.

I don't always wait for a sale. But I don't usually pre-order or buy first day. I'll wait for reviews and community feedback purchasing.

*Flexes left hand*

Yup... I can still feel it. Holding down the left trigger button basically for 17 hours non-stop in Prototype injured that hand slightly, and do this day I can just barely feel the stiffness and the burn. For the longest time the first joint of my index finger was sore as f*ck as a direct result of playing that stupid game.

So for creating a game where I had to hold down the left trigger to basically do *anything* for 10+ hours and contributing to soft tissue damage, Radical can go fuck themselves.

Not sure why I'd ever want to play this with a controller. Mouse and keyboard worked more than fine for me. Nice to be able to look one way and run another. I had pin-point perfect control.

So... what does this mean for the PC port of Prototype 2? Is there a skeleton crew of Radical devs still working on it? Has it been outsourced to another developer? Cancelled? Given the huge delay between the console and PC releases, I have to assume that work on the port hadn't even begun until the console versions had shipped.

Crapple... This is one in a very small list of games I preordered well in advance... It better make it : )

Maybe I should go for a refund before the summer sale starts...

-Alamar

I didn't preorder, but I'd still like to play it at some point.

Even better, I never heard of the Expendables and can you call 1 movie a franchise? .. I only barely remember something about a rambo knock-off with stallone, but is that this? , so this is a movie tie I have no idea what it even ties into.

Maybe I ought to rent the movie heh... imdb rating 6.. meh

It's a flat-out action flick for guys with the same kind of vibe of most classic action flicks. If you like explosions and violence, you could do a whole lot worse.

I kinda liked it. I think the 6 on imdb is mostly from people expecting some sort of profound dramatic story. It was a decent movie that does what it set out to do. That's basically it.

That's odd. I thought they were changing the main character because they wanted to put in someone who was likeable.

The other issue probably being that African American main characters just don't sell as well as Caucasian ones. So adding one on top of the other probably didn't help. I'm assuming he really was a bigger douche than Mercer.

I didn't mind Mercer that much, though. Anti-heroes are sometimes a refreshing change of pace.
