Single player is a lot of the same as Anomaly 1, but multiplayer is pretty fun.

What no Eador: Masters of the Broken World

I want it, but they've been blasting it in the forums for being super buggy and unfinished. Ima wait for a sale/ a few patches on it first.

I haven't experienced any major problems with it. Here's video of me playing it for almost an hour.

There is certainly mouse support. Co-op is far better than single player. Check out the game in my video impressions.

I haven't gotten mail about a review from you in ages... Are they being eaten by my horrid spam filtering mail server, or are you not sending them?

I have transitioned from written reviews to video impressions, so I didn't feel it was appropriate to post alongside reviews anymore.

I shot Dan from IGN (and made a snarky comment about it) while recording my video for ShootMania Storm, and I am quite proud of myself.

I played the open beta for a while and I liked it. More simplified, less random luck, lots of jumping and dodging.

I reviewed this when it came out 1.5 years ago. I'd hope it's improved since then.

I wish the critics were taking less EA ad money

All of the reviews that came out before release were done at a press-only event at EA HQ last weekend using limited numbers of players on one (most likely low ping) server. Obviously, none of the server connection issues could be assessed in such a closed environment. Personally, it doesn't matter how good or bad a game may be if you cannot play it.

2nd favorite game of last year, right behind Crusader Kings 2.
Still playing NS2, and I enjoy it so much more than your typical online shooter thanks to the strategy elements that make each game different.

Hope it's not to arcade'ish.
I reviewed a previous installment of the series and it was most definitely an arcade game.

Omerta's main issue is a lack of depth: it's too easy to succeed and you end up doing the same thing each mission. At least it has the tactical battles to vary things up a bit.

They had a review embargo lasting until two weeks after the game came out on Steam? Lol..

Yeah, the PR guy from Kalypso wanted me to wait until the retail release date to post the video (I didn't realize PC games were still sold at retail). I actually had it done a month ago as the review version was handed out the beginning of January. Seems like some other sites did not have the same restrictions, as they posted reviews when the game hit Steam.

Good thing being colorblind requires you to have a constant internet connection.

Kinda curious about this one.
I'll have video impressions but not until the retail release date of Feb 12; the review version has been on my Steam account for about a week or so.

It's a simplified city builder (less resources, with direct relationships between converting them (rather than having multi-step chains) ...examples: a speakeasy sells liquor and beer for dirty money, while a ponzi scheme converts dirty money into your "liked" rating) with turn-based tactical battles that are interesting when special abilities are involved.
