    And to retaliate, @dakotac9849 gifted me Castle Crashers in return. A very classy move I must say!

    If I worked for Valve I'd definately take steam dollars as pay lol
    Since you would already own every Steam game I'm not sure what you'd do with them...

    Still kinda on the fence about which one to pick, played the Orcs must Die demo and thought it was a great game, but ever since I read previews for Dead Island I've been so intrigued by the premise of Dead Island, it just looks and sounds so much like Fallout/Zombie apocolaypse, though I've never actually played it to tell. Well got one more day to make up my mind at least

    Dead Island was, for me, a bit closer to Borderlands in tone than Fallout, in that there's much more of a focus on (mostly melee) combat than dialogue.

    That and Dead Island is really dumb.

    It's fun, if you can get into it, but man, is it dumb.

    Watching videos of Dead Island was the first time I realized just how different first person and third person animations were.

    Much of my thanks to @testsubject23 for reminding me what classiness is about. It's about multi-massacres and foreign legions, clearly! Amazing the man was able to find me within the mountain of work I've been living under for months. I miss you PA.

    NEXT GIVEAWAY!

    1679.jpg

    The Last Remnant is an awesome RPG with a truly bizarre encounter and combat and battle and leveling and character and team and army management system.

    So, if you want to enter to win you need to PM me with what you would do if you found yourself in command of a vast army. Would you invade Poland? Would you round up and eliminate Hippies? Would you suddenly become bogged down in the logistics of how in the hell someone put you in charge and descend into an ever-maddening downward spiral of depression and angst as you tried to manage payroll, keep your army fed, and find housing for 100,000 (or however the hell many) troops under your auspicious charge? I'm just curious what your first thought and/or action would be.

    Alternately, you could just PM me the reason you want the game.

    Either way, I'll PM you back the url for the Steamgifts giveaway.

    This one is odd because I'm going to cap the number of entries. I'm not going to tell you the number at which I'll cap it, but I will. I totally will. Probably. So act fast.

    Ends Saturday at Midnight.

    Also EDGE

    Dammit, you people got me to buy Section 8: Racism, all that talk of Halo gameplay and being similar but not the same just overrode my common sense and knowledge of not having a job atm.

    Also, so close to beating Chronicles of Riddick: Dark Athena

    Given the Disney acquisition of Lucas Film today, I think I'll reinforce what I've said a bunch of times in the past, if there's an old item you want based off a property with licensing issues, get it while you can. Disney has stated in their conference call their game focus is going to be about licensing rather than publishing, which does not look good for LucasArts, who have published the games on Steam. Granted, since the property owner published the games, they are not as likely to disappear as some, but better safe than sorry. At the very least give a look if it's on sale soon, as if they shutter LucasArts, we might not see decent sales as often.

    @Corpekata, or other knowledgeable forumer, what's the short list of games to consider scooping up?

    For the Halloween chills, I've got a bunch of Containment: Zombie Puzzler codes to give out (about 15). The first 15 who message me will receive Steam codes for this little jewel of a game. I'll be checking my mailbox later today (because I'm going to be on a train for the next 2 hours).

    Dead Island with a friend is a completely enjoyable experience and fun from start to finish. Even when you're in areas with the constantly spawning frenzied zombies. Dead Island solo is not remotely fun in the slightest once you leave the Resort.

    Speaking of Dead Island, what is the upcoming expansion supposed to be about? Or is Riptide a sequel.

    iirc, Riptide is Dead Island 2.

    I enjoyed that game til the last 1/3 or so. Then it just got...dark. I know it was a zombie game, but
    when I'm going around killing uninfected people with the fire machetes and poison sickles...
    it just left me feeling bad. I was thankfully @iolo gifted me Costume Quest afterwards and the cute balanced things back out.

    Cars and long reach weapons are your friend.

    For some reason I enjoyed Dead Island solo (after waiting a month because of their botched save system) but I found one run was enough. I'd play again in co-op but the game is definitely shelved otherwise.

    While I'm sure the answer is no, kill it with fire, or something similar...I have $10 in Amazon credit. I'm thinking Darkness II will be mine. Also, there is a Legacy Pack with something stupid like 16 adventure games in it for $4.99 which includes Chap 1 - 5 of a Doctor Who point and click. Anyone played those to know just how horrible they are? I mean, $1 each for a mediocre point and click on a series I love still seems tempting...

    Thanks to @karmacappa for the code for the Zombie Puzzler. It looks like the type of quick puzzle game I love to play so I can't wait to install it. Right now I'm installing Darkness II - if anyone missed it, it's back to $4.99 on Amazon and activates on Steam.

    I'm very tempted by NS2 (played some of the mod, way back), but I know from past experience that when I get too many MP-only games in a short space of time, it's inevitable that one of them goes unplayed for long enough that the community dries up and then it's just a wasted purchase. Between War of the Roses and Guns of Icarus I should have my hands pretty full.

    Someone make me a Let's Play for NS2. I demand it. ;)

    The NS2 community is not going to dry up. It has a dedicated fanbase, something War of the Roses and Guns of Icarus didn't. It has a competitive community, something those two games didn't have. It has been played for more than a year now in large numbers, something those two games can't claim. The original mod still has players. And there's literally dozens if not hundreds of hours of NS2 footage on YouTube if you want to check it out.

    Offhand I can just think of all the Star Wars games and the lucasarts adventure pack which has the dig, loom and 2 Indiana jones games. Also possibly the Lego Star Wars/Indiana jones games? Not sure who publishes those.

    I think it's only about 3 hours long, give or take. I finished it in one sitting then went back for the 2 achievements I was missing. I wouldn't mind at all if it was longer.

    It'll have a free weekend eventually. Demos are really hard for small indie studios developing multiplayer only games. Free weekends are much better for them.

    I don't even know what natural selection 1 was, let alone this new game.

    I assume it was a 2d fighting game set on and staring animal species of the Galápagos Islands?

    If only. I'm imagining Charles Darwin as the final boss, with lines like "your adaptation to this environment is...sub-optimal."

    While I'm sure the answer is no, kill it with fire, or something similar...I have $10 in Amazon credit. I'm thinking Darkness II will be mine.

    Darkness II is a really solid game, especially for $10. It's short and dumb and has no real replay value, but it's a great ride of a FPS that has a neat art style and some interesting gameplay mechancics.
