Hell, TF2 is free now, give it a shot.

Nah, the reason why I never got interested in TF2 is because I was really put off by that cartoonish style. Can't stand it, really.

Please tell me you are not serious. TFC/TF2 are nothing like Enemy Territory, I even dare say that ET was rather unique in its gameplay, not only concerning how the maps were designed and how the game mechanics worked but that every map had some background i.e. a small story behind it.
Team Fortress on the other hand never seemed very interesting to me.

From the simple fact about how many hours I sunk into Enemy Territory and TF2 they are exactly the same. So many, many hours wasted

Plus, some of the game mechanics were pretty similar but that comes with the whole team shooter territory I suppose.

Well, I have to admit that I am not overly familiar with Team Fortress, I always assumed that it is mostly CTF based whereas Enemy Territory seems to be based on achieving objectives.
I guess I'm probably wrong.
Still, no game will ever be like Enemy Territory (because no game engine will ever have the same movement as the Quake 3 engine *sigh*).

I really liked Quake Wars, though I'd guess I am in a minority there. It was fun in coop against bots, and the objective-based maps were pretty cool.

I'd like another Quake Wars game, ideally with more maps and a map editor. There was never enough content for the game, which is one reason it underperformed I think.

Don't get me wrong, Quake Wars was really good and it is still a fun game but the lack of continuous support (e.g. new maps etc.) and the lack of fanmade maps kind of killed the game. I guess you can still find a couple of servers but that is not really enough to sustain a game, although it is pretty cool that they haven't shut down the master server.
I remember that there was a 32 player CTF server for Jedi Outcast called [United] Coruscant and it was pretty full, at least until 2007 or so, wonder whether it's still online.

That was TF2.

I'm sorry but Brink was broken and did nothing for me (not to mention that it was rather slow) and the community around Quake Wars vanished kinda quickly, probably due to the lack of support.
It's a shame, really.

I liked Revenge of the Titans but if I remember correctly you had much more freedom when it came to placing your towers.
In Defender's Quest you have that traditional tile-based system while the the enemy walks along its predetermined path, though that is not a bad thing.

Concerning the RPG elements - it is a bit like a very simple RPG, you have different classes with different abilities (e.g. fighter, archer etc.) and you have to use them strategically because they are better against certain classes than others. And they level up which gives you skill points that you can spend to unlock new skills which you can access in-game by boosting the respective character.

It is really worth the money. I cannot believe how much I like the style, but to each their own, I guess. I don't like that 50s style from The unstoppable Gorg but that medieval fantasy thing, that is going on here, really does it for me.

I hope the game does well enough.

Man, this game is really awesome.
Normally I don't play Tower Defence games, do not like them. Had enough of them after I played some Starcraft Brood War maps with my friends, many years ago and the only ones I have played since then were Sanctum and Revenge of the Titans.
This one is really good, though. I just really like the style and the setting they went for and really enjoy the humour, the mix between tower defence and rpg works quite well, too.
Afaik it is neither on Desura nor on Steam though I personally like it that way because I hate to use installers or self-unpacking binaries on my Linux machine.
Took me about ten hours to finish the main game but only on casual, though. Will try to get perfect on every difficulty setting.

The impression that I have is that, the people who do the Indie Royale, saw how successful the Humble Indie Bundle was but didn't fancy the idea that additional work would need to be done to create Linux ports - so they just made a bundle where that is not a requirement.
A shame, really.
Though it still looks like the Humble Indie Bundle is the most successful one of all the bundles there have been.

Uh, that is not correct. You are having fun because you had low expectations, not despite having low expectations.
You see - you had low expectations i.e. you did not expect very much from this game and the game offered more than you expected and that is why you are having fun.
If you had high expectations than the game would have under-delivered and you would not be having fun.

I'm glad the article states that it's not actually Facebooks fault but the fact that a bad marriage and the ability to talk to just about anybody is the root cause. The leading cause for divorce is always marriage lol.

Sadly not everyone has the mental capabilities to realise that, at least I get that impression when I look at the comments section of this article.
These people could also be trolling though.

Either way; sad, sad.

It is a bit sad to see how some media outlets are completely incapable in dealing with such a new phenomenon as Anonymous.
No, Anonymous is not a group, saying "Anonymous said this and that" does not make much sense since people could go ahead and attack PSN while claiming they are Anonymous while others will say that they will stand by the decision not do something like that. It is not an organisation, it is a loose gathering of people.
Adaptation was one of man's greatest strengths but some people are obviously inept at that, in modern days.

And thankfully such censorship is not common in the more civilised parts of the world.
Again: This is the internet. The internet is not a really a "state" or something like that so I'd recommend to drop these archaic ideas and embrace a more modern approach.

If I recall I think I got a warning about swearing in the beta. Blew my mind. I asked them wtf the chat filter was for in that case. Yet another reason this game is doomed.

Sorry, but that there was absolutely no way that they could've made room for a word filter in their budget.

Krahulik should have stayed out of it. He can spin it however he'd like, but it boils down to "I think I'm pretty important since I run PA and PAX, so I'm going to throw my weight into this bit of arm-flailing."

Between this ridiculousness and the Notch/Yogscast Twitter debacle a few weeks back, the "gaming community" is looking more and more like "kindergarten."

That's absolutely ridiculous.

It might also be worth noting that since PAX, the show the guy was touting that he'd be at, wouldn't exist without Krahulik...he doesn't have to think he's important, he is. If he doesn't want someone with that sort of behavior being on the floor at his show then I think it'd be irresponsible for him not to say something. It's part of why PA is as popular as it is, because they aren't just going to let it slide because someone is paying them money...they actually care about what's going on.

As much as I hate the gaming community in general, the actual event that people are talking about is one of the positive examples of it. The stupidity surrounding it and the juvenile actions of random people who aren't involved with the story sucks (including Kotaku here), but it's pretty silly to think that's a gaming community thing and not a general internet thing.

And further dragging this into the public eye accomplishes... what, exactly?

Cheap entertainment for once and even more cheap entertainment concerning discussions about the morality of the whole story. Kind of redundant, actually.

[edit]
Oh yeah, and clicks, c.f. Forbes article.

Was hesitant when I first read about it, especially since I have never played a Tribes game before, but after having received a beta key (I didn't even know why since I, although I wanted to, never applied - my guess is it's because I bought Global Agenda) and actually played for a bit I can say that this game is a blast!
Really fun, kinda fast (although not really fast-paced) multiplayer shooter. Good times.

A VPN network could work - it also could not, depending on how they implement it.
For example: I can say from personal experience that it does not work on Steam. I can connect from the US using a VPN and see products that would otherwise be banned in Germany but if I'd actually try to purchase them I would not be able to do that because I have to enter the address where I live and PayPal also show that my bank account is in Germany. That way Steam can actually determine that I am not a buyer from the USA but from Germany and stop me from buying that game.
Apparently it works sometimes when you use a credit card, or so I have read, though it is a bit strange how that works since one user reported that he wasn't able to do it while his friend was and both of them had the same type of credit card.

You could probably try to enter a fake address in the US but you'd also need to do that in your PayPal account and since they verify these things it could be seen as fraud.

We live in sad times.

Nope, I was never interested in the Transformers either. Never saw the show or the movies and was never interested in any related products.

Prime is a rather generic word, too.
