News Comments > FTL: Faster Than Light This Week
5. Re: Re:Indie Rant Sep 12, 2012, 16:26 fawker
 
The whole retro fad at the moment has everyone gushing about old 8 bit games. I didn't have an option, I had to play these games if I wanted to be a gamer back in the day. I wouldn't touch them now with a ten foot pole.

Unfortunately this fad has crept into indie games, and it's allowing some developers skimp on art and whatnot yet still be marketable. Much like Instagram will be forgotten about in a year or so, yet the pictures taken will still look like ass, with no one around to remember why.

Overall, great to see things like Kickstarter. But, its rather embarrassing that these shitty graphics are the face of the indie game movement at the moment.

I can't shake the feeling I'm getting the same content I use to, for a premium additional price with a lot of this DLC.

Really a buzzkill.

Yet another case of cutting content out of a game so you can milk the customer for money far too soon.

The creator of PvZ did indeed lose his job. I hate EA, here comes another lifeless sequel.

Just wanted to say that I am the proud owner of the Nobel Peas Prize. It's a gold trophy you get for beating the campaign, and all the mini games, puzzles, and survival levels.

This is probably my only opportune moment to brag, I have no regrets taking it. I don't even like achievements, but for some reason, I do in this game.

On a sad note, pop cap hasn't come up with anything new in a long time. Now the get a sequel? I won't say it's not warranted, but EA's kiss of death has gotten every developer so far.

It appears cutting edge graphics are still not a selling point for this series. Looks like the same old shit to me.

This would of been great at launch.

If I was head of that clusterfuck, I would be working on some more content, or something that will retain gamers. The whole "cash cow" philosophy for Diablo isn't holding much water at the moment.

Except for bots, maybe.

The original port didn't even bother raising the resolution or texture sizes up. I doubt I will be surprised with this one. Actually, the original port may of been one of my first experiences with a port to begin with.

Far too little, far too late.

You still can't even sort stuff the way you want.

It's like looking through a bargain bin at Walmart.

Great news! The inevitable GOTY pack with all the extras is getting sweeter all the time.

Keep counting those eggs EA.

If they keep throwing out DLC after launch, I'll keep waiting to buy these games.

And there goes my SKSE again, hopefully it's been updated.

Time to reinstall that hex editor, sigh.

The announcement of the announcement. Blah..

Pretty lackluster expansion pack, if you should even call it that, according to all the reviews I read.

Preordered from Gamefly, mostly because I had a generous 25% off coupon to use up.

I got the PC Download pre-ordered from Amazon.com a few days ago as it's only $53 there.

Does that register on steam? I assume all PC copies do but I'm not entirely sure.

Man, I need some new friends to play with, lol.

If this is another 12 hour single player campaign with a carbon copy multiplayer for 60 bucks you can count me out, zombie mode or not.

I ended up pirating MW3 just for the single player, I wasn't that impressed. With so many set pieces it actually gets boring, you barely feel like your even part of the action, or required for it.

Still, if they charged 20 bucks for just the single player, I would consider that fair.

I've made a separate facebook account for these kind of games before. To save the pain of loggin in and out of facebook accounts, I will usually save my password and username on a different browser I don't use very often.

Once you do that, you can friend a bunch of strangers that want to play the game. It's okay if you do it that way, but honestly the social aspect of these social games are usually the reason I quit playing

the mechanics are fun despite that, it's a shame this is where a lot of the new "fun" games are appearing.. just wanting to milk as much money out of you as they possibly can
