It's bad when the 10 dollar indie games give about as much play time as the full price triple As. Haven't seen a boxed edition of the indies.

Indeed. It seems that lately I've been buying and enjoying indie games a lot more than AAA games. Defense Grid, Frozen Synapse, Sanctum, Terraria, Magicka, etc. Don't get me wrong, some AAAs are still really good (Just Cause 2 is incredible! Just got it on the Steam sale), but there's real competition now on who gets our money.

Regarding these PC sales, do any of these statistics take personally built PCs into consideration? I know the number would be very low, but it doesn't seem like they could record such sales since people buy different parts from several places.

Ooo, there's a demo? Think I'll give it a spin.

Where do you see the demo? I can't locate one either on Steam or on their website.

Hmm, I guess there isn't one. Thought I read somewhere there was. Damnation!

I like tower defense games. I'll try the demo if there is one.

It's not on sale today, but there might be a Steam encore for it Sunday... Sanctum is awesome! It's my new favorite game. It's like Defense Grid except when the waves start, you get to jump in all FPS style. You get to choose whether to upgrade your towers or your guns. It's just...great. Been having so much fun with it. Multiplayer, too!

Wow, I didn't realize it was DirectX 10/11 only (no XP). This a pretty big game to do that. I just upgraded last year to Win7 64bit, thankfully. A little late to the party, I know.

Frozen Synapse is a great game, especially if you like turn-based strategy, strategy, or just good games.

That Frozen Synapse price finally looks about right, I think I'll bite on that and meh to the rest which I already own anyway. I think some of us are rapidly approaching the steam saturation point where stuff can go on sale all they want but we already own most of it

It's a great game, definitely worth it, especially at that price (and you get two copies).

This game has Duke Nukem Forever syndrome.

Except they've had playable demos for gaming conventions for over a year, and they're not a no-name company, and they have a huge publisher giving them lots of money while giving them lots of time to make sure the game is good and polished. This game is going to be nothing like the abortion DNF was. No offense to abortions.

Girlfriend and I bought Magicka today before the previous sale ended (yes, I know we're late to the party). It's fun so far, though we keep killing each other by accident. Today's sale I'm thinking about Tropico 3. Defense Grid is a steal at 2.49, have about 90 hours on that game. Torchlight is a steal too at 2.99.

I'm hoping its at least as good as the King's Bounty series has been in it's absence.

Yeah, I have The Legend, it's a good game.

So when's the update that adds a proper interface for 3rd-party maps coming? They don't seem to want the game to take off.

Nice to bring attention to new maps though.

Hopefully they'll add it in their free summer DLC. It isn't that hard to play custom maps, but I agree they could make it a lot better, which would have more people playing/making custom maps, which is good for everybody!

I actually enjoyed the closed beta (everything was working).

I enjoyed it, too. Never played it the first time it came out. Going to play again when it starts.

Wow, the new Soldier items are pretty beefy. 40% faster rockets with no reduction to splash damage or radius? A shotgun that has automatic mini-crits on airborne targets? While a lot of players will stick with the Gunboats or Buff Banner as their secondary weapon, I'm pretty sure everyone will switch over to the Liberty Launcher.

I'll definitely be trying out the Liberty Launcher. Right now I'm using the Black Box. I play mostly payload, go commando style a lot (solo), and use rocket jump. If I play smart, I can heal for quite a bit, stay alive longer to kill more people.
