News Comments > Epic on Bulletstorm Sales

It had some pretty funny dialog, actually better than a lot of games manage, but it was more in the vein of stuff like, well, pretty much any movie with Vin Diesel in it.

I found the dialog more comparable to something like American Pie or any of the Scary Movie/Typical-Spoof-Movie than The typical Vin Diesel yarn.

For the record, I also liked Bulletstorm. A balls to the wall action shooter that came during a time when I was swimming in tactical shooters, felt like a breath of fresh air.

I'm calling it right here and now: The Unreal franchise is getting transformed into Gears of War.

As a result, the paid version of the game was removed from the site and as of now, customers who have paid for the game (including myself) can't download the game they paid for.

About this bit: Maybe it was me dreaming it or something but I could swear reading somewhere that Valve had allowed Indie Stone the use of Steam's servers for distribution, do you know anything about this?

I only got to play the alpha a couple of times back when it was still available, saw great potential but figured I'd just let the game simmer for a while before getting back to it again. Since then I've been reading on Reddit about all the hardships the team has been going through. (The whole "Paypal freezing their account" fiasco was particularly painful)

How come we never hear enlightened statements about the virtues of piracy from indie developers who haven't made a million dollars from their sales?

The Project Zomboid lads haven't made close to a million dollars and they have roughly the same outlook on the situation.

Damn, it's incredible how bad things were at Bondi, and how LA Noire still turned out to be so cool. (YMMV)

I guess Bondi being kicked out of the R* fold won't really be a bad thing, judging by everything said here. And perhaps LA Noire 2 will be even better.

Creston

Your last point actually has some precedence: Red Dead Revolver was originally a quirky third person shooter by Capcom that had to be dropped, was later picked up by Rockstar and finally slapped into shape to what it is today, turning out to be above average but nothing really special.

Red Dead Redemption eventually came along and blew everyone away.

Perhaps if Rockstar do acquire to rights, they'll be able to turn out something special for the sequel.

Just to clarify, you can either pay two bucks for it or you can redeem three summer event tickets and get it for free, you earn these tickets by completing certain Steam achievements for the games that have been released as daily specials so far.

Now, how did they manage to get all that stuff built on the roof of the underground part? It looks like they were just floating up there?

Here's hoping for some rare artifact style items, no adventure is ever quite complete without them.

Once you get tired of building rollercoasters there isn't a lot to do in MC except do it with other people on a server.

That's around the time you should start dipping into the user created content section of the Minecraft forums, give this a try.

Also try Millénaire, it gives the game a whole new angle to shoot for by spawning NPC ran villages that you can have a hand in building.

Or if you just want to screw around in a new world for a bit, try the recently released Kataminey Damacraft.

At the moment, the high amount of manpower from the mod and mapping communities are outputting way more interesting stuff than Mojang themselves can ever hope to accomplish. I'm sure Mojang will come up with something truly special once 1.8 comes along but right now, I'm even more anxious to see what other craziness the community can come up with.

"I’ve already seen an early version, and it’s crazy awesome."

I'm still anxious to see an honest developer say "I've played an early version of it, and it sucks."

See if it were me I'd release some public server software so people could keep the game alive through user run servers and party like it's 1996.

But then again, they're complete morons so that's probably too much to ask.

News Comments > Frozen Synapse Soundtrack

My main wish for this game: A GUI window that lists every active order and special state all of your squad elements is currently following that I can overview before hitting the commit turn button. This is because I keep forgetting to unset that one guy I forgot about from focus mode and he ends up waddling ass forwards into the fray, giving a very literal meaning to the phrase "Getting your ass shot off", just about makes me face palm every time it happens.

Other than this bit, I love this game, been waiting a long time for something like it to come along.

They should go an extra awesome step forward and just name the game "Sci-fi Shooter."

Every single 1.x release has had some horrible bug in it that breaks everything, thankfully Mojang is usually quick enough that they release 1.x.y and 1.x.z a couple of hours later.

The problem with depicting Vegas as having been struck by a nuclear holocaust is that it already looks like it went through a nuclear holocaust.
