I discussed my Steam grabs on the Steam thread. Definitely loading down on ports of the classics, yes.
Anyone on this board ever played the Commander Keen games?
I have no desire to play it after about a week.
But dis game would be an awesome contender and probable winner for GOTY for an XBLA game or PC ..short game.
BioShock Infinite, Crysis 3, and Metro: Last Light all deserve to be in the OP imo.
Also, my friend just indefinitely lent me his copy of Skyrim. To quote him, "I just did not like it, so you could borrow it forever and I wouldn't notice". Gon' be guuuuuuuuuuuud.
So that's what? $30 Canadian? Sounds great, I LOVE me some Platinum and I've had my eye on this since it was announced. Thought about even importing but it was expensive.Anyone who loves Platinum Games I strongly demand that you buy there games, especially Anarchy Reigns the game cost only Ł20!
I really wanna play Bayonetta 2 but I don't want to buy a Wii U for it. So I'll wait.why buy this game when you know that Bayonetta 2 is being made, well unless you don't want to buy a Wii U.
...and a toilet seat cover.
Also, most of my Commander Keen experience outside of the Steam collection is from hacks of games 4-6 to fill in for a missing trilogy of games that never got released because the company moved on to the Wolfenstein series and some other things. Said hack is, rather expectedly, balls-hard, that just being how people make hacks for some reason (i.e. always upping the difficulty from the original for some reason).
There were pretty much no games that came out this year that I was interested in, aside from the new Lego games (which are always fantastic), and Transformers FoC, which I still haven't gotten. After Tribes: Ascend and MechWarrior Online pretty much went p2w...I lost all hope for games this year. As for what I was looking forward to, Borderlands 2 was alright, Halo 4 was horribly disappointing, and everything else was just...meh. Games were either ridiculously short or just so heavily focused on the multiplayer aspect that it wasn't worth getting them unless you played online.
Next year's looking pretty good, though. I preordered MGR Revengeance on Amazon (hopefully they don't screw up again and send me the 360 version), as well as BioShock Infinite. Since they confirmed that there's not going to be any stupid, tacked-on-at-the-last-minute multiplayer, it appears that they'll go back to making the storyline the main focus, so that'll be nice.
Anarchy Reigns is looking kinda cool, and hopefully Metro: Last Light won't get pushed back for stupid reasons. I'm still kinda hoping The Last of Us won't end up terrible, but I've got a gut feeling that it's just going to bomb.
Ho lee shit.
The new Humble Bundle has Metro 2033, Red Faction Armageddon, 3 Company of Heroes games, Darksiders, and Saints Row: The Third as the BTA.
The average is at 5.45 right now, get it before it skyrockets.
EDIT: Aaaaaaaaaand it's dropping. Looks like people are just buying it for like a dollar to get everything but Saints Row, lol. I really hope this one succeeds, not in the least because I want to see another.
But I want Metro: Last Light, so they can't die. ;-; Brb dropping my commission prices to hopefully get something. Even though I already have Metro 2033.
Which means they never played any games in the series.
So, **** THQ.
And that's the appeal of Saints Row, it doesn't take itself seriously. If you wanna go around town swinging a giant purple horse dildo while wearing a space suit, go ahead. That's what makes it
Added, but I'm not adding TBA games, as the list will just expand beyond the horizon. I will just stick to firm dates for now.I will just them add it here;
Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch (22 January US 2013 25 January 2013 EU and UK) PS3
Zone of the Enders: HD Collection (30 November 2012 EU and UK) Xbox 360, PS3
Tales of Xillia (TBA 2013 EU, US and UK) PS3
Actually, I'm banking a PSP. Defunct hardware ftw!Originally Posted by Night Shadow
Err, I mean, I'm only getting it as the price of the Vita completely cancels its benefits over me getting a PSP, which is playing portable PS1 games and a few PSP titles that interest me.
Yes, exactly. The fun of Saints Row: The Third for me was largely in how over-the-top it was, never taking itself seriously. I mean, there were some reasonably serious themes vaguely explored in a few instances, too, but the game overall would just be a shaky GTA clone if it were lacking its wackiness.
Iduno, I didn't get too many games this year and I don't follow games much other than the main franchises I'm into. AC3 looks awesome but I still need to beat brotherhood and buy Revelations, even though I know the storylines aren't connected (but hey, by the time I finish those two AC3 will be cheap. ).
Halo 4 was very disappointing. The MP at least, I haven't tried SP.
I remember seeing some footage for TLOU which looked really good, I have no idea if I'll pick it up or not. And Bioshock looks really good, though I've only played the demo for the first one and it scared me hahaha.
Never played SR3 myself, but I have played SR2 and I really didn't like it. Maybe I didn't give it enough of a chance, and with my friend cheat-abusing my opinion might've skewed a little?
