No L4D or L4D2 missing ? No Dungeon Defenders ? No Payday ?


I guess it is a matter of preferences

Yup, preferences. I'd put Battleborn in there but I know Battleborn isn't popular amongst the collective gaming yobs of the Internets. It's something I've had to accept even though I love it.


No other game has actually offered me the chance to play a flat-chested punk girl, an old man in a wheelchair, a disabled birdman, or such a kickass chubby and body positive lady before. So I've been having a blast with it. I appreciate its diversity and sense of fun.


I don't think they should have put The Algorithm as the first mission coming out of the tutorial, though. I can see how a piss-take of the Simulated Reality theory would go FWEEEEEeee~ over the heads of most people. Which is disappointing, but most certainly expected.


I'm genuinely of the opinion that Battleborn is just a bit too clever in certain ways for most people to appreciate, and that's despite it being an action game. Quite how they pulled that off...


So, yeah. Most people would rather blasting each other's brains out with contemporary weapons in military settings, or drooling over one-dimensional 'waifus.'


Everything is a matter of taste. Suffice it to say, I don't value the taste of many people very much, but they're entitled to it.


And that's why I didn't mention Battleborn in my post below. Like I said, I know it's not for most people. The majority wouldn't be interested in playing an old man in a wheelchair, or most of the rest of the cast. Evidenced by how Oscar Mike is the most played character, despite his status as a parody (very much revealed in his lore) and a big softie.

Had only bad experience from OCUK, so I wouldn't be going to them first. Still nice to see the PC Parts being moving to gaming related shops. Hopefully those will have more understanding than the sales ppl in the last computer shop I went to:

Him: "This graphic card is better: it has 256 Mb of RAM."
Me: "Yes but it has a weaker Processor."
Him: "No, but this is a bigger number."
Me: "Do you even understand the product you are selling?"Reply

People are still pirating games ? Oo


I would have normally waited for a sale on steam, but I couldn't wait seeing the positive reviews there. :D

I know right? I have a huge back log (1750 hours from Steamleft.com) and then I purchase nearly all my games at Steam xmas sale each year, so cheap and huge value for money.


Hell over its lifetime a console is more expensive with $100 games, not anti-console, I own several

Hah, i bought this 2 days ago after scouring through Greenlight applications to find things that were "out" on Steam yet. Cost me a fiver.

.

It's friggin gorgeous looking. Only thing i struggle with at the moment is working out a way to 'turn' your cart, since the wheels are not very grippy and the turning device doesn't stop, so you frequently snap your axal in half! :D

.

Setting soldiers on fire and watching it spread through a whole army is strangely satisfying... >:)

ye did the same thing, so for any potential buyers: If you have a steam account, better buy it on steam directly. ;)
