    Would really like to pick up SS3 BFE, but $20 is out of my range. $12 is better, but I'm still not sure. I love playing FE/SE co-op, but find the games annoyingly dull when playing solo. What I've seen of SS3 looks really awesome, but I'm worried that none of that will change. If I loved playing it singleplayer I'd be all over the $12 promo, but at this point I'm going to think on it. The game desperately needs a 4-pack as I find it to be the most fun when playing with at least 3 other people.

    SPAZ or Titans? I'm trying to limit myself.

    Also, if you've played both, which is more fun and dungeon crawly? DS3 (on sale at amazon) or Two Worlds 2? Pondering one of these, but not sold yet.

    Sorry, asking again. anyone have opinions on this?

    Okay guys, I'm at work without access to Steam or steamgifts and want to give some soon-to-be-happy person Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light. Also I have a meeting in 15 minutes, so if you want it shoot me a PM and its yours (assuming I recognize you yadda yadda yadda)! Also, don't be scared if you're buying on Amazon. They used the "box" art from the XBLA version, but it's the PC version.

    Weird, I have both the Team Fortress and Dungeon Defenders cheevos and yet they haven't registered on the gift pile, really don't want to do them again. That sucks, decided despite there being a few games on the sale today that I want, and SirCarcass's incredibly tempting offer, I really can't buy any more games, I have too many to play and I'm just playing SWTOR all the time, so I think I'm out.

    I couldn't last the course, carry on brave soldiers

    I wish I had that kind of self control, I too have way too many to play and spend ages on SWTOR (Shandril here, hey Teep) but my steam games list keeps growing and growing every sale with awesome games.

    I think they both have demos. I'd vote for SPAZ overall though. Both fun, but I think the glut of Tower Defense games makes me value Revenge a bit less.

    thanks Corpekata, I did play the demo of SPAZ and enjoyed it. I'm a sucker for hybrid tower defense games (a la sanctum, Iron Grip Warlords, Dungeon Defenders, etc) But I can't even get into defense grid....odd I know. I'm a sucker for strategy games but it blows my mind about defense grid.

    Now, DS3 or Two Worlds 2?

    Titans is old school TD like Defense Grid, not a hybrid FPS/TD. Between the two, Defense Grid is more structured and forgiving actually.

    Oh joy, I didn't notice that Republic Commando was on sale yesterday, snagged that last second!

    Looks like there's nothing for me in today's sale. I almost want nothing else to show up cause that means I can let myself buy Skyrim if there's a "best of" day again.

    Well fine. I guess I'll just go to my meeting and (hopefully) give this to somebody when I'm back in a couple hours (hopefully sooner - these meetings are super dull and I already want a nap because I'm just coming back off of 4 days off for Christmas).

    So be thinking about how much you want GoL and be the first to PM me. Seriously, guys. Super easy contest here.

    Wait.

    There are people who don't like TotalBiscuit?

    I may not agree with all of his opinions about games (he doenst like adventure/puzzle games for example) but he always seems to be very honest in that it's all his opinion and tries to give a good look at the game for people into the genre.

    I didn't know people had strong negative opinions toward him

    Lara Croft and The Guardian of Light. Kain and Raziel character pack. It is not as stupid as it sounds, and is actually kind of awesome. Get it.

    Damn I decided against Sequence, now I'm not sure that was the right call...

    It was not. Fortunately, you can still buy it since there's a grace period.

    Let me talk about Sequence a moment.

    I dislike rhythm games. I hated guitar hero, rock band, could never be bothered to step on a DDR pad at an arcade. I have no rhythm. I generally hate the techno/electronic whatever it's called music in these games.

    I installed Sequence for the cheevo. Got it in 10 minutes or so,

    I played virtually nonstop for the next four hours.

    It is a fantastically fun game. The dialouge and item descriptions are really excellent and I laughed aloud several times. It's really just FUN. Better than it has any right to be. Decent length, as I'm on Floor 5 of 7 and I'm pretty sure I'm gonna have to go back down to do some things at some point.

    Plus, I'm damn sure that Naia is a babe. She sounds hot. @kalia thinks she sounds like Eliza Dushku. Not sure how much I agree, but still... Hot voice. Snarky. Rrrrrowrr.

    The only real flaw is that it can be a bit grindy and the whole spend experience points to craft... but there's always a chance of the crafting failing... thing can die in a fire. Bad decision.

    Other than that it's great!

    EDIT: oh and you know how I usually hate this type of music? Well, I'm really, really enjoying the music in Sequence

    Watching you talk about it in the Steam chat was a joy, haha. I got a few good laughs.

    I can't decide whether or not to buy Star Wars Empire at War

    I'm going to go against the grain and recommend SW: EaW.

    It is, certainly, not the best RTS I have ever played.

    On the other hand, the base campaign is fun - manufacturing equipment and sending them to other planets to fight in battles as either the Rebels or the Empire - and it lets you set up defenses on your planets in advance of battles. The expansion campaign was a little less fun for me, because I didn't care about the "protagonists" as much, but it was well worth the money I paid for it.

    Space battles, though, are where it's at for me, and the instant-action against the CPU is a fun romp. It's the mode of the game I've played the most, and still fire it up every now and then for a quick SW space battle.

    Empire at War isn't awful, but everything it does, Star Wars: Rebellion did better.

  • mntorankusumntorankusu Registered User regular
    I just want everyone to know that $2.49 for Guardian of Light (on Amazon, Steamworks) is an absolute steal. It's so gooooooood

    People keep asking about the single player, and if it's worth playing without doing co-op. Sure, it's one of the best co-op games ever made, but let's just say it still would have been my GotY last year even if it didn't have multiplayer at all.

    Nope, I'm waiting for that one too. That and SPAZ (today's deal) are likely my last purchases of the sale.

    Serious Sam 3 is tempting but when I'm in Steam Christmas sale mode, anything that is in the double digits feels too expensive. Plus I need to hold on to some money so that I can pick up Shogun 2 + DLC if it's goes up as a daily sale.

    Did pick up Serious Sam Double D though (already own Random Encounter). Almost feel bad that I've waited this long since I know the developer. :)

    It's on sale, but not as a Daily Deal which we all know is really the only time to buy. That and at the very end when you are certain X game is not going on DD.
