I just finished my first walk-through of Dear Esther.
When I say “walk-through” I mean, walking through the narrative of this incredible mod on top of Half Life 2‘s Source Engine by Dan Pinchbeck.
Defense Grid: The Awakening is on sale for $5. Stop reading now and click the damn link if you enjoy tower defense. This game was, from what I could tell during the demo, not worth $20 or $15. But 5? That, my friends, is the price of a 5 dollar foot long at your local subway.
So instead of shoveling more cheap swine-flu-laced lettuce and the best horse snouts which can be placed on a cheap roll baked fresh from organisms (Subway’s Fred De Luca found in a neighboring galaxy but that was actually too expensive so he had to just use recycled sporks as filler instead) into your pie-hole, go down to your local Steam retailer and buy this tower defense game.
Steam has a sale going on for all three Company of Heroes titles including the new game (Tales of Valor) at $40, Peggle Complete, including Nights and the original Peggle Deluxe ($10), and 50% off all Strategy First titles, including a discount on the pack which includes all of their games on Steam ($74.99).
Ahoy folks! I’m fydo and apparently zakk wants me to write some stuff on this silly blog. I like to hang out in the indie games / opensource games crowd, so I’ll try to share any interesting tidbits I pick up on. Meow?
For instance, I might mention that this weekend there is a weekend sale going on at Steam, featuring 5 pretty awesome indie games. These games are:
I personally know the developer of Gravitron 2 and he’s a great guy too.
So I’ll talk a little bit about Gravitron 2. It’s got a really retro look and feel to it, tight controls and a difficulty ramp that reminds me of the NES days. There are over 40 levels in the original game and the game author just recently released a map pack which adds even more. There is another update in the works involving the map editor, but I probably shouldn’t reveal too much about that. Suffice to say, Gravitron 2 is more than worth the $5, and within this indie pack, it’s a steal! (figuratively speaking, of course)
I’d love to hear your opinions about any of these games in the comments, so flame away, dear readers.
(Note that I’ll try to avoid turning my posts into advertisements in the future. Hardy har.)
Call of Duty: World at War is critically under appreciated. By that, I mean the slights it gets for being popular. Some too-cool-for-school game critics think that CoD:WaW can’t be good because regular people enjoy it.
If only they could see past their indie-rock-pete-esque hearts to the shiny gooey filling that is an improved and different Call of Duty.
Improvements on CoD4:
