Steamships Ahoy - Unstoppable Gorg

Steam News announces the release of Unstoppable Gorg, the new take on the tower defense genre from Futuremark Game Studio. The game is on sale for 10% off for the next week, and here's word on what it offers:

Get ready to experience a revolution in tower defense that will send you spinning. Unstoppable Gorg challenges you to defend the solar system from fearsome aliens by sending satellites into orbit. Unlike other tower defense games, in Unstoppable Gorg you can move your towers by rotating the orbits that surround planets, moons and space stations.

Unstoppable Gorg is a lovingly crafted homage to vintage sci-fi films from the 1950s. Flying saucers, rubbery aliens, dodgy effects, it's got it all. The game's story scenes were shot on film using models, miniatures and live action actors and then edited together with genuine archive footage to create a classic sci-fi experience that is out of this world.

Worked out well for Arkham City, didn't it?

Is that supposed to be funny? No, no it didn't.

Obviously you and I have completely different definitions of "shitty engine". Short of CryEngine3, I don't know of another engine I'd take apart from UE3.

Considering every single aspect of UE3 was designed explicitly for the 360 (and it shows)...

As most of the features in CryEngine 3 were... as were the Gamebryo engines that Bethesda uses... as was id Tech 5...

There really aren't any PC-centric engines out there right now that are worth much of a damn, plain and simple - and rolling your own is beyond the expertise of, well, pretty much everyone.

So yeah, what is the only game running UE3 that features DX11? Arkham City, right?


How's that working out?

Worked out well for Arkham City, didn't it? Whose fault is it if features aren't used?
And I'm fairly certain virtually every feature shown at GDC last year goes beyond what consoles can do.

Except for DirectX 11 support, amongst many others.

I'm convinced, based on PHJF's enlightened comment, that the 360 has DirectX 11 built in...

Turns out deleting client blob file is the fix. I haven't had to do that in forever.

Wouldn't surprise me if valve forgot to forward port fixes for that that they've fixed in past versions of steam. They've done that before in games.

Come on valve, hire some fracking dedicated UI and server people. And maybe do a bit more testing before you push things out.

Dungeon Defenders is tower defense, and that's getting to be over 5 gigs now (with all the DLC added probably more).

2 GB on your hard drive? WTF kind of tower defense is this?
Dunno, but mine says 200 megs. Before it says no steam content servers are configured to let me have it.

Sidenote: Defense grid has over 1 gig of install. Thats a fun tower defense game.

Says 200MB, but when you look at the properties of the download it's about 900MB.
I would if I could... except it won't let me.

Anyway, as I mentioned, defense grid is about 1gb, and I'm sure its not the only tower defense game to be around that size. Just depends on the graphics and videos.

What the FRACK would you let someone buy it (aside from pre-order) if they can NOT install it and play it RIGHT THEN?!

Please hire some dedicated UI people and server people. kthx
