So when are the armchair vets here at Bluesnews going to finally create your own gaming development studio?
If you put up the funding, I'm sure there's people who frequent blues that would jump at the chance to earn some money.

Fuck all that. I want games for grown ups and games that target specific groups of people. Chances are that a game that appeals to 10 year olds isn't going to appeal to me, I am fine with that. But when you try to satisfy all you wind up with a big pile of human dog shit.... wait that didn't make sense.

It is amazes me that these things are "features" in PC games these days. I am not knocking the game devs but just wow.
They put that stuff in bullet-points for guys like us who care about such things. Saves us from wondering if it's gimped like most everything else that comes out. I appreciate them doing it myself.

More evidence of how damaging consoles are to gaming and pc gaming in particular.

It's like people that bring kids to a party or out camping. All the adults have to dumb themselves down while in front of the selfish parents. "Oh little janey and timmy are here.... great...., hide the bong, don't swear, chill on the drinking....."

It was looking kind of interesting, but it looks like you're limited to a 2D plain which made me lose interest. It may well be a very good 2.5D shmup though, that's just not my thing.

They should have went with desura, I think its very easy to get placed there and its somewhat familiar as an indie alternative to steam.

Anyway, anyone tried this game?

Edit:
Here's a youtube trailer with gameplay:

It is sad they have to differenate themself from all the other turds that have tainted the well.

All Zombies Must Die was the first to point out these things and still FAIL on multiple levels. Most notably, no online co-op. For some reason they thought people wanted to play local co-op on their computer.
