I'd be happy with a new FlatOut, but they haven't released anything new since FlatOut 2 ages ago(HeadOn and such are just repackaged versions of 2 for other platforms)

Why would I want to play a vampire game and play as a human all the way through?
PropheT wrote on Sep 16, 2011, 23:34:You're not suggesting Bulletstorm must be worse because it didn't sell as well, are you? Please tell me you're not...
Cliff has a pretty good point, actually.
The last line of the article kind of makes the point, really:
I mean, it's not like the game will be a "flop" like Bulletstorm, right?
Eurogamer gave Bulletstorm a 9.

That's a pretty big stretch and a ridiculous conclusion to come to. Gamers shouting epithets or using questionable language at each other isn't exactly something new, whether it's people calling each other fags on Xbox Live or a gamer proclaiming how he "raped" someone else at any other game out there. I don't think anyone has ever claimed, outside of maybe Jack Thompson and Fox News, that it's the games making those people act like that rather than being a problem with the community members who do it and the culture of the gaming community that, for the most part, allows it.
Took the words out of my mouth!

You have the right to be an offensive ass, and he has the right to call you on it. Period. Don't get too sensitive about what sensitive people think about you, ya wimp.

If you're reffering to stereotypical characters, then once again the list of stereo type female characters to stereotyped male characters is, once again, much longer.
Draugr wrote on Sep 8, 2011, 16:27:And for every game you'd name, I could name ten where every male character is a brainless muscle-bound caveman.
Right, because games like Bayonetta, DOA, and Lollipop chainsaw aren't all there just waiting to illustrate my point. They might not be offensive in the same fashion, but it does help illustrate Sexism/views of women in gaming culture. The list could be bigger, but that's just off the top of my head.

What universe do you come from? That's absolutely all 'recommended' has ever meant. "You'll get a pretty decent experience with this hardware."
Sempai wrote on Sep 7, 2011, 19:51:Does releasing it on steam mean they can't also release it on a DRM free site, then? No? No.
Jesus Christ the constant whining..
Any person with a lick of common sense knows what the guy meant when he made the statement about DRM.
It's a pretty safe bet the reason these guys are using Valve's service is to get it in front of eyeballs, that's it.
But by all means, continue.

Rage will most likely come out on 2 or 3 DVD's
peteham wrote on Sep 7, 2011, 05:08:So they recommend people run the game with most of their carefully crafted details turned off? Yeah, that makes a lot of sense...
Recommended: Will run and play just fine on ~medium, or possibly high if you go down in resolution; but forget running well on high.

When does the series make a jump equivalent to BF2 -> BC2?
Ventura wrote on Sep 4, 2011, 19:47:Still not that cheap. It's only £17.99 on amazon.co.uk, which is about $29. Is buying retail in the US more expensive than Steam, or something?
RO2 is presenting itself an appealing package over MW3, if just for the price difference between the two. I can get RO2 on Steam for $35.99, whereas MW3 is currently being let go for a somewhat inflated $99.99. Both in $US, of course
