Not only do I not know that, by the time I had invested 4 hours into it it appeared the only way I could get the save system functional was restarting the game so GFWL could update.

I'm going to start the game up again at some point and try to stomach replaying those four hours, so I'm not as enraged as other people. But as DRM goes that's really annoying. Especially because if they had made it a ban on loading, instead of a ban on saving, I would have been able to save it last night, wake up this morning, figure out I needed a Live account, made the account, and then continued on my merry way.


Unfortunately, for me there was an agonizing road between "made the account" and "continued on my merry way" in the form of activation e-mails not working, wrong services activated, the game freezing up, the client updating for an hour or so, and other things. What I only just rediscovered about GFWL in Bioshock 2 is how the bastards neatly shuffled the option to create an offline account into a dark corner. I managed to do so when playing Red Faction: Guerrilla, but when I tried to find the button that says "Offline account" in Bioshock 2 I was at a loss. Now here's the thing: There was no button. Instead, on the 'Create a new account' screen, you can scroll down the information where there is a link near the words "If you do not want to profit from the services offered by Games for Windows Live, and would prefer to have a rabid squirrel inserted up your" etcetera, which allows you to make an account with a lot less fuss.

Okay yes I did make up that last bit, but no one would object if that was actually what it said.

PENUMBRA INTERESTS YOU.

Also, if you're in to any sort of combat games, the rabbit one, despite looking goofy as hell, is a pretty hardcore fighting game, with your attacks being blocked then riposted so you block and riposte and get blocked and manage to block the attack coming back at you and finally kick the bunny bastard in the head... in the course of a second or two.

You might as well get the Penumbra games now, so that you're up to speed for when you buy Amnesia: The Dark Descent.

What do you get if you combine Asteroids with Audiosurf?

Sued for copyright infringement because somebody already did that and it's called Beat Hazard.

Until July 4 Beat Hazard is on sale for $5 US. There's a demo available in case you're unsure of buying it. If the game seems a little shallow, keep in mind that it was released only two months ago and they're still working on updating it. If you're curious, you can read about it here.

Also, the DLC is pretty much required if you buy a lot of music through iTunes.

The game is beyond awesome if you love space shooters and music. It's basically Asteroids set to your music with a maelstrom of particle effects and a seizure warning. As we all know, any game that starts with a seizure warning is going to be good (unless, you know, you're prone to having seizures).

I actually dislike Beat Hazard, it's a fun asteroid style game, but what was going on didn't seem at all connected to the music I was playing.

Yeah, i'm keeping my eye on those. If there's no daily deal for them then I'll be picking it up on the last day of the sale (I know it's already 50% off, i'm cheap like that).

I put even odds that it will be $2 at some point before the end of the week, if it doesn't get bundled with something else. Steady your hand!

I've heard Tales from Monkey Island was a bit middling, but for ten bucks I think I'll have a go. And all the critics seem to like Oddworld, but of course I purchased it when it was twice its current price.

In other news, D2D is making a cute little attempt at competing and are for 6/28 only offering Mass Effect 2 for $20. More deals to come, too, but that's the only one I'm interested in, really.

Dude, I bought those games for the ps1 when they were first released, at least 40 or 50 bucks. Twice it's current price would be 5 dollars. I think you got a pretty good deal still. :P

Besides, those are awesome games, still worth it.

PENUMBRA INTERESTS YOU.


Something told me I should look into this Penumbra game, so I read the description and watched the trailer and was intrigued. I downloaded the demo and... eh, I'm on the fence. Mostly because the controls seem a bit unwieldy. But if it gets cheap enough I may go ahead and pick it up because otherwise it seemed pretty cool.

GTA IV is up for 7,5 euros. I'm tempted to buy it. If I need a more mindless version, I already have Saint's Row 2.

Also was the Penumbra thing in the humble indie bundle? I havn't even downloaded that yet.

It's a great game. It's calming until the later levels, which leave you scratching your head.

Fixed. I'm at level F2-3, and it's killing me. How the hell am I supposed to capture all three repulsors? The best I can do is fuse two of them but that gets me nowhere.

Edit: Apparently the solution is to get really freakin' huge and bounce around fast. Only two more levels to go, and they all involve complicated orbiting mechanics.

Agreed, but there's a very good chance it just seems that way to me because all the games I'm interested in in the sale, I already have from previous sales.

A query: when Steam drops prices like this, how often do you actually bother taking the time to try a demo before adding yet another game to your library?

Buy Shatter before it's too late. It's awesome.

I also bit on The Void today. I would have bought a couple others, but I don't feel like going through the horrid Games for Windows Live.

Yes, would someone care to sell me on The Void? The trailer doesn't look appealing at all, especially since it has to so quickly resort to boobies.

I'd also be willing to go in on an L4D four-pack. Any takers?

I haven't gotten enough time to play it, but from what I did, the nudity is never something that is even attempted to be used as some kind of selling point in the game, it's just there. I also believe there's full frontal male nudity as well. If you've ever played Pathologic, it feels very similar to that (most likely because it was made by the same developer), even though they don't share much in common beyond atmosphere.

This is right. Characters in The Void are naked for the reason gods are naked, not why pin-up models are naked. Sure Sister (the tutorial character) is quite pretty, especially with all that Color bubbling around her naked form, but to be honest she creeps me out just a little beyond the point of finding her anything more than aesthetically pleasing. She's both motherly but vulnerable (in a "protect me, you big strong man" way) at the same time, creating this weird juxtaposition that kind of prevents the nakedness becoming fanservice because finding her motherly is weird, and finding her sexy is equally weird. This may not work as well if the player is female.

I haven't played through it very far, but what I've seen of it I like. It's incredibly atmospheric, giving the right feel. The game is meant to be a struggle for your life and it feels like it. You always want more Color. You need Color. Where can I get some more Color?! It really makes you feel the central mechanic which is something that can't be said for a lot of games. The graphics are this strange mix of dated and high-quality. A lot of the terrain doesn't even have normal maps but the Brothers and Sisters are rendered in exquisite detail, from their flowing hair and delicate dresses, to the spikes they've impaled themselves upon and used as legs. The particle effects are brilliant and the English voice acting is great too.

It plays upon the instinctive fear of death. The opening cinematic describes the closing stages of someone's life and how, even though they've tried to do good and have happy memories, the thought of death still chills them to the bone. It's chilling and definitely appropriate. And this fear of death hangs over you in the entire game, unlike other games you never do anything specifically for material gain or challenge. Everything you do is to get more Color and to extend your life as much as possible. If I had to point at one videogame that could be called art, it would be The Void.

Overall, most definitely worth the £5 (or equivalent quantity of your currency of choice).

Was I playing The Void wrong then? You make it sound really good, but I found that once I'd started to understand the mechanics and actually get by, every game ended in me running out of colour. After a while, my gardens would just turn up nothing and long before I'd had the chance to visit any of the other sisters. I killed the second sister I met in desperation for more colour as I'd have died without it, but that didn't do nearly enough for me and I died anyway.

The game felt to me much like going into an RTS against a really great player - You have to immediately know exactly what to do, there isn't time to actually experience the game, and one slip from the correct course of action will kill you. Not wanting to play by trial and error, I gave up on it. If I've been missing something huge and I'm wrong about the game's difficulty, I'd like to give it another go. Otherwise, though, I can't recommend it.

And if you meant 'nothing' as in, very little, it's because you're being too frugal with Color. You must have heard someone say "The more you give, the more you get"? If you give a tree like three bits of Color, it'll give you five after the first cycle and two or three after that. Give a tree the full amount (around twenty) and it will give you double that after the first cycle, and half of it each cycle after. It's the fundamental paradox of the game: you want as much Color as possible, but to get as much as possible you have to give as much as possible without killing yourself.

We're getting away from Great Steam Deals here (Void thread?), but I picked up on both of those points whilst playing the game. I recall putting about 60 colour into a tree and receiving a return of about 5 on the first cycle it produced anything. I can only assume that it was because it was the second time I used the garden, but I don't recall any explanation of what I was to do about it.

Aw yeah, I totally called it.

By the way, that Penumbra game everyone was raving about? D2D is currently selling it at 50% of Steam's sale price. Granted, it will also probably be five bucks on Steam at some point in the time remaining, but I can't imagine it will be cheaper. Or will it..?

What's the word on Prototype? I'd rather have Infamous, I think, but then I don't have a PS3 and probably never will.

Hmm, that is a good deal, esp because it includes the first one too, whereas the steam one is just the second 2. But I really would rather have it on steam, and I'd pay a couple bucks more just for the ease of installation and access steam provides. I'll wait till the last day of the sale though, maybe it will be on the daily deals.

I guess we will find out on July 4th, because the daily countdown timer will say. Probably noon July 5th I would think.
