Interesting, I had no idea Deus Ex had whored out that much already with DLC... what sort of DRM does Direct2Drive use? They don't list anything there.

*EDIT* ah in each product page they list Steam, my bad.

League of Legends (and DotA style games) are increasingly popular. I'm pretty sure this is one of the signs of the coming apocalypse.

LOL!

I am about to suffer a hernia from laughing. After all the indie cred from Minecraft and Bethesda/big corporate gaming hate for the Scrolls nonsense lawsuit that was floating around, they come out with always online DRM(most likely).

What a joke, hope this game fails utterly.

It looks somewhat similar to those screenshots, at least that one map with the shot up city. However it looks like those screenshots are much higher res than this video.

Still, feels like old Serious Sam, with slightly better graphics.

Another console based, console port shooter, with the as yet unused WW2 setting!

Even better, it's third person! Throw in cover based and you have made all the mistakes required for market success.

Also I see the potential for undiscovered secret Nazi technology... how quaint.

What, was the Korean War not taught in Let's Make a FPS/TPS Video Game class? The Falklands Conflict? The Soviet invasion and occupation of Afghanistan? etc. etc.

I leave out the option for something totally original, because of course that will never happen. :O

So.... every Skyrim thread approaches 100 comments, mostly complaining about the UI, but extolling the other virtues of the game.

Excellent, as soon as that GotY version hits the bargain bin, and the mods are polished, I'm all in.

By then I expect some ultra high res textures as well!

Well, it's good that they realize the tactical light is annoying as shit, but hopefully they take into account the hassle of an unkillable teammate blinding you with it, whether purposely or not.

Teammates blinding me, or at least covering up a significant portion of the landscape with a giant glowing circle, even while I am in a TANK, is a lot more on my mind than some enemy turning on his light. So far, I don't think I've failed to kill an enemy trying to use the tactical light the way it was meant to be used.

Yeah their FAQ was pretty general, they warn that some games MAY require Steam/Desura at some point in one of the bundles, basically.

All the games in this current bundle (#2) can be played without Steam/Desura, as far as I can tell so far.

I think I'll keep an eye on their future bundles from now on, they seem eager to compete with Humble, price wise.

What the... The Humble Bundle has COMPETITION!

Most of these games look good, I think I'll buy this after some DRM research. I never heard of the first bundle in this series.

*EDIT* Not quite as good on the DRM front as HumbleBundle, some of their games use Steam or Desura? Oh well, still buying for Night Sky.

The online stores won't divulge numbers.

Just generic top 10 sales lists from Steam and the like, I take it? It figures, those shifty, online bastards. No doubt it's to hide their true income from tax agencies.

Only 2 million BF3 copies sold? Hrm maybe they won't be quite as dickish with future plans to sell maps as expansion packs? Oh wait too late.

Also, why do these analyses focus on retail(brick and mortar only I am assuming) instead of also counting online sales? Seems like they are purposely ignoring reality.

Animation Smanimation. Let me know when the GotY version hits the bargain bin.

By then the modding community will have set this game right.

Hrm, the graphics are a lot better in this than previous Serious Sams.

Still, it basically looks like any other Serious Sam game, gameplay wise.(with added melee animated kills)

They aren't charging 40-50 bucks for this, right?

This game is awesome. It's that simple. I've played it more than BF3, to be honest, even though you can't even really compare the two genres.

That said, various costumes... meh, I could care less. As long as all the missions are available on ALL platforms(for free if they are free on one), it's all good.

As far as the Halloween mission/costumes on PC, they were available on Open servers starting November 2nd. This was announced, but only on the Trendy forums, I had to go looking for it.

I only play open/local myself, as I keep getting disconnected from Trendy's Ranked servers, to the point that I can't even finish a map.

Meh, I'm still going to buy this game, most likely.

In comparison, Assassin's Creed series has some amazing animations, and that game is still boring as hell on consoles, and DRMed out the ass on PCs.(so I have no idea what it's like on PC. :D)

It makes me realize why I enjoyed Fallout 3/NV so much compared to Oblivion... exploding headshots. FO melee is about as bad as Oblivion.

In conclusion, Bethesda needs to add their exploding body part engine from the Fallout 3/NV games to Skyrim. Better animations are beyond their team.

I gave in and bought BF3, and indeed, it is very good.

Minor dislikes:

- 'Dirt' on my cameras inside tanks/AA vehicles... I get their attempt at gritty realism, but it is just annoying. I want to see a crystal clear view as I shoot enemy infantry in the face with a gatling gun/HMG, or turn enemy tanks into flaming roadblocks! (bloodthirsty smiley here)

- Chokepoint maps. As good as Operation Firestorm and a few other maps are, some of the ridiculous chokepoint maps (Operation Metro, that tunnel one with a few vehicles) are just laughable. I halfway think these are in the game just to grind for unlocks.

- Coop, while very interesting, has NO BUILT IN TEXT/VOICE CHAT. This seems like a shoddy port of a console feature. Not even text chat? Really? Multiplayer has it... Also, coop seems inordinately slow compared to multiplayer, regardless of comps involved. Obviously some of this is from AI routines, but still.

- Maybe it's just placement, but C4/explosives in general seem WAY stronger than in BFBC2, for example. 1 C4 destroying a full health tank? Lame. Still, tanks are beastly, so it was probably a balance decision.


The single player is of course a bad CoD ripoff, but the jet sequence is gorgeous enough that I almost forgive DICE. Eyegasm territory, and you don't even get to free fly. I can't wait for the single player tank sequence, when I eventually go back and finish up the singleplayer portion.

Yes, I get the gameplay > graphics argument. I still fire up BG2 occasionally, and I'm still playing various indie/humble bundle games that all have their various non-AAA graphics setups.

However, I still blame Minecraft for the veritable flood of new indie games that don't even bother to do graphics that would look out of place after about 1990. I'm looking at you, Terraria!

Voxels are still implemented primitively enough that Voxatron makes a bit of sense, I am just annoyed that my Humble Bundle track record will be interrupted because I literally could not tolerate playing this game.

Oh well, between this and the semi-fake voxel engines out there, maybe voxels are the future of graphics... again.
