The models and animations looked utterly wank on that one to be honest. Global Agenda looked more interesting to me. The 'advance faster by paying', by a multiplier effect on xp is a good one I think. I know quite a few people who play World of Tanks and it works well there.
Global Agenda was good at one point, but it's crap now. Spiral Knights was kind of amusing, but the cutesy art style wears thin quickly for me - seems like it'd be a good game to franchise out with plush dolls and miscellaneous crap.
Steam's got another indie sale going on. Unfortunately, all of the good games are in different packs. Still, five games per pack for only $10 (each game is usually $10 on its own.) ARES is so far pretty fun, though it's not much like either Metroid or Mega Man (the two games I was expecting it to play like.) Controls feel a little sluggish at times, there are numerous spelling errors and grammatical mistakes, and I'm not a big fan of the art style (never been much of a fan of japanese-style cartoons), but overall it's pretty fun. Mechanarium is a pretty highly regarded indie title, though I didn't enjoy it when I played it (I bought it a long time ago.)
The first-person tank arena combat game in the action pack looks pretty fun, but I can't afford to buy both packs. Still, it's always a good idea to support indie gaming since that's where the majority of innovation comes from these days.
