I've pre-ordered, and can't wait to play. I got it with the 4 pack deal, so there's little chance of it not providing my money's worth.

I picked up Civ IV Complete. So far I've only played about 90 minutes of Colonization. I like it, but am still learning the ropes.

I think I'm finally going to pull the trigger on Civ IV. Is Colonization any good?

So when buying straight from them, are you getting any DRM?

News Comments > Final 2 L4D2 Campaigns Revealed?
22. Re: Final 2 L4D2 Campaigns Revealed? Oct 12, 2009, 16:12 Veinman
 
so L4D has nothing to do with cooperatively killing endless waves of respawning enemies in massive groups?

While hordes of enemies are in both games, I'd say 2 key differences set these games apart significantly. First, in Gauntlet you CAN stop the monsters from re-spawning, and you could argue that this is your immediate objective, as opposed to just getting to the exit.

Second, and I'm really quite surprised that no one has modded this into L4D yet (at least that I'm aware), the characters in Gauntlet were actually different from each other.

That said, L4D could be a good base game to make a Gauntlet total conversion.

reminded me of a FPS style Guantlet

That would not be a bad thing. Why hasn't anyone made that?

L4D is fun, but it's fair to say that you should buy it on sale since the content in the first game is/was lacking, although I've had a lot of fun lately with user campaigns.

edit- and I forgot to add, it's really nothing like a first person Gauntlet.

It's a real disappointment to me how OpFlash turned out, based only on the reviews as I have not played it. I'll still give a demo a shot, if one comes out, but again, based on what I've read, they ruined their chances of getting my $40.

Hopefully it's far better than the first Zombie Shooter. That one was way too short. Alien Shooter 2 was fantastic.

I would theorize that it simply keeps Expert level damage, but does away with any HUD aids like seeing your teammates through walls.

Hopefully the infected can't win every time by simply camping the generator.

Has there been any online review that literally compares Arma 2 and Dragon Rising? I'd like to see concrete comparisons of features.

R6:V's cover system was particularly heinous, since you could actually aim while completely behind cover.

Not in High Stakes mode.

yeh that makes sense - in fact the only game i know of on consoles that has leaning is Socom3, and its performed by tilting the controller (with sixaxis)

Rainbow Six Vegas has lean, both to the left and right (for corners) and up (for looking over the hood of a car).

When a pre-order for a game that doesn't even come out this year is the 2nd best seller, I have to wonder just how poor the sales really are.

I'd love for this game to be good, but I suspect it's going to suck. Rogue Warrior was a cool book, I recommend it if you like black ops / Vietnam stuff.

How exactly do the 4-packs work? Does the purchaser enter the steam IDs of the other 3 users at time of purchase? Or does he just have the ability to gift 3 licenses? I've never gifted anything on steam.

This looks pretty fun! Reminds me of an old PS2 game called Zombie Ambulance Driver or something like that, except that this game actually looks good.
