Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    No, it will not. Under 25% is very rare.

    Has anyone played Nihilumbra? I've been thinking about getting it on sale if its like Portal, but in Steam Hub they say that the game is too easy. What can you say?

    On a side note, what are the requirements to join PA Adventure Team?(I know that you can't join while the sale is so close)

    But otherwise, yeah - go directly to Warband, do not pass Go, do not collect 200 dinars.
    Well this is welcome news, despite that being the only mod I played.

    I was under the impression that Warband was the opposite of good, got depressed without trying it, and hoarded up a few backups of Vanilla for posterity. Hopefully The Newell will give me a chance to atone for my rush to judgement.

    Bought Divekick as a two pack so I can give one away once I'm home. Can't wait to give it a try.

    I tried the risk of rain demo....holy shit!

    Did you like it? I played it for a bit and felt really disappointed by it. Everything about it should be fun, but for some reason it just isn't clicking for me.

    Issues
    The controls are just weird. Having a dodge button in between two attack buttons means I am missing the button in a key moment 25% of the time when I am trying to mash it.

    The time limit is a bit grating. I don't mind the increasing difficulty, but I guess I am not a fan of the forced reckless rushing.

    The difficulty spike. After a few tries I got a handle on level 1. I got some gear, figured out patterns and was able to get the basics down. Level 2 just fucks you right from the start. The enemies are tens of times stronger and half have bullets that you can't see and can barely dodge. That is when there is only one of them and you are focusing. When things go nuts and there are more you just get torn apart.


    Sigh. Don't get me wrong. I love roguelikes. I fell in love with Binding of Issaac and Rogue Legacy (Look at my times played. We are talking a combined 150 hours or somesuch), but something about this one rubs me the wrong way.

    Music is pretty though.

Seems to have helped with my timing on some of the tables. Earth Defense really clicked for me, and I take back most of what I said about V-12, just takes some board knowledge to score points.

    The left side drain on V-12 is ABSOLUTE BULLSHIT though, my god I am glad I don't break my own stuff when I get frustrated; I would be buying a new controller tomorrow for sure.

    I added all the tables I don't have to my wishlist; come on big sales! send me to pinball heaven!
    If you have not done so already, remap the flippers to the left and right bumper. Then move the manual ball launch to the right trigger.
    doing so made the game a lot more responsive for me.

    Thanks for the tip @viking took your advice and passed your score on a table. Thought my new score would put me ahead of everyone, but I think @drake has been playing V-12 recently. You are right though the top bumpers seem a lot more responsive.

    Edit: Someone should make a Pinball FX2 thread for talking tables and talking trash. I would do it, but the game deserves a better OP than I think i could pull off.

    No! Warband rocks.

    Here's my Steam review:
    Me wrote:
    Mount and Blade: Warband is the game that the original Mount and Blade wanted to be when it was released. More polished, more complete, and in all ways improved, this is the best swording-mans simulator on the market. The modding community is fantastic, offering new maps, troop trees, fief management options, etc. The only remaining glaring weakness is companion management - in the game, your companions will not automatically equip themselves with improved gear (though many mods add this as a feature) and it is next to impossible to know, without switching through multiple screens, whether a particular weapon or piece of armor in a shop is an improvement over what your companions are currently using.

    I have sunk more hours into the Mount and Blade series in the past couple of years than into every other non-MMO game combined. If you haven't bough and played it, yet, you are truly missing out on one of the singular gaming experiences of today.

    Repost before I go to class. The giveaways end at 1:20pm pst tomorrow, and hopefully they won't overlap with any timed sales for these games in particular.


    edit: And just as I say that amazon has Dark Souls for $6. That is indeed the cheapest it has been, previous was $7.50. That's a really, really good price.

    Sadly, the video lacks footage of train defense missions.



    shit gets cray during siege and defense missions. Don't be afraid to hide behind siege equipment from bolts and arrows, always carry one melee weapon just in case you have to storm the throne room and kill the last holdouts......

    The best measure of a game is how you describe your strategies for said game. Should your strategy sound quite metal, its a good game.

    Same here. I never knew that pinball could be more complicated than just slapping the triggers until you miss, but I'm seeing the genre in a whole new life. There's one heck of a learning curve, sure, but the table gameplay seems less and less random the more I play it.
