    Myself and a few of my friends are excited about DUNGEON DEFENDERS, just because it looks like a blast multiplayer. (PSN/XBLA/PC)



    And FIREFALL
  1.  (10196.62)
    @James Cunningham: Well the adventure mode itself isn't all that groundbreaking, for me it's the fact that there's a creative mode that gives you unlimited blocks and no health to lose. Clearly, I have a new purpose in life: dynamite!
    There ares lot neat details though; such as the new changes in light and the way animals run away from you faster than before after you hit them. You're right though when you say it seems like groundwork; XP does nothing and while the food bar is a nice touch I don't know how amazing it will be. And I still haven't seen a dungeon or any new mobs.

    Apparently Bethesda turned down an offer to make a 'A Song of Ice and Fire' game. I'm actually kind of disappointed, if only because I can imagine getting the chance to cut of a horse's head and then see it floating in the air...

    @ Jamie Heron: Brotherhood is preety good a hell of a lot of improvement over AC2 but in some areas it's a little complicated for me spcifically is all.
  3.  (10196.65)
    @Darkest: Cool, I do really like the series and I really want to play around in Istanbul next. And Ozgameshop has Brotherhood for 30 dollars, I'ma gonna go spend money!

    So today- Trackmania 2: Canyon, Minecraft 1.8, and Radiant Silvergun. Radiant Silvergun! I just paid $15 for the best Saturn game ever, on the 360. I'm living in the future and it's odder than I could have expected.

    i need to get 400 more points on my system for Silvergun. much cheaper than almost paying $120 for it a few years ago!

    I completed "Ghost Trick" for the DS the other day, and it's completely awesome. Made by the same people who did the Phoenix Wright series, it puts you in the role of a sort of poltergeist, who gets the ability to rewind time to four minutes before someone's death to avoid that death. It's got a very old-school LucasArts vibe to it at the same time, with the animations and all.



    (That dog in the video, by the way, is also awesome. One of the best characters in the game. Truly a Top Pomeranian.)

    Fairly minor spoilers in this second trailer:



    Also, it's one of very, very few games to make me cry.

    Play it. Play iiiiiit.

    Anyone else "played" Saya No Uta and felt bad/sickened/like drinking afterwards? It's a visual novel rather than a game. I was interested in trying one out and searched for what a "good" visual novel was supposed to be without learning about the details. It's in the horror genre, but it's squick rather than scary. I forgot about some of Japan's "quirks". :( I still feel queasy. Unknown if recommended and honestly, I question the legality of it in western countries. Yeah.
    ----
    Anyone used on-live? I want to try out some new games, but I can't feel motivated to buy a console or upgrade my windows box. Considering I've finished 5 games in the past 5 years, it appeals to me.

    @twentythoughts Thanks for the heads up on Ghost Trick!

    Ghost Trick is still my current 'Game of the Year'. They need to port it to the iDevices to get it out to more players.
  7.  (10196.73)
    Speaking of iOS and Games of the Year.

    THIS GAME IS CALLED GOAT UP:


    You are a boy goat. If you kiss a girl goat you will have a baby a few platforms later who will help you collect keyboards out of the grass.



    When you die, it is Goat Over, man



    Consistent with the brand, an update for the game was released to address an important issue.

    Apparently DCU Online is going free to play next month, I'm glad I held off.
  9.  (10196.76)
    Eff yeah. Wonder if they'll make you buy the Fight for the Light expansion, though, seeing as that one was made free for the paying subscribers.

    Hmmmm. Actually, now it makes perfect sense that they made it free to current paying subscribers. If they'd made them buy it and THEN made the game free-to-play... Yeah, people would not be happy.

    @Twentythoughts

    Yeah, you should've seen some of the feedback Champions got from the people who bought Lifetime accounts and then the game went free-to-play a few months later...

    You could've read by the flames while in orbit.

    The GL expansion should be free for everyone. And people that already paid will be on the second tier of players: free-->Former subscribers-->current subscribers

    guess I get to be in the second tier of players because I had a PS3 account before the PSN blackout/unemployment. Now I can finally use 'the game that cannot be sold' again
  10.  (10196.79)
    Well, yeah, but they said the GL expansion would be free to CURRENT players. So I wonder, now that they're going free to play, if they'll be selling that as a separate expansion.

    But yeah, anyone who's spent more than five bucks on the game is apparently entitled to the second tier. I'm guessing that counts for those who bought the game and used their free month, too. Which is good, because the game is still very much functional like that. In fact, outside of the restriction on chatting, it looks pretty much like what subscribers had before.

    On their website they are saying there are going to be 3 tiers.
