LOL I was just going to post about this sale, you beat me to it! I haven't installed it yet - downloaded it while I slept. I'll definitely be playing it this weekend.

WARNING: Neo has decided that this game does NOT meet his high standards for gaming excellence. He doesn't have a problem with the graphics or the gameplay, nor has he even tried it to see if it's any good. It's a much more nebulous and philosophical problem he has with this game. Sadly even he can't define it other than to say he's not attracted to it (and he hasn't even met it!)

Hmm. Maybe no warning is needed after all Wink

...or should I say ^_~

Hey everyone, I recently got the chance to interview Matt Enright and Nick Mazmanian. I've edited it and thrown it over some multiplayer footage (that probably makes me look better than I actually am, but that's the perks of editing it myself) and have it up here.

Hope this is entertaining for you guys, and I'll definitely be deleting more of you in the Tuesday community multiplay matches!


My Steam nick is GrendelD3 BTW.

I only got a chance to play for a couple hours, but it looks promising... Still trying to figure out the various weapons etc.

Some of the secondary functions (hit the residue w/ a scan) are fun, eg. if you run into something that shoots missiles, mines, or bullets hit it w/ the beefed up shotgun and scan -- everything they shoot gets captured by the gravity wells Smile I've stuck the shotgun into all my MP profiles as the 2nd gun. The charging injector (green "sniper" gun) works closest to the massdriver, it shots on release. Any of the three sniper guns are favorites in MP, it really caters to the mouse-look feature of the game (to any sticklers dismay I may add...) Standard grenades work surprisingly well in MP, the are "magnetic" and hard to dodge (altho you can shoot them down !) The missiles are more annoying than dangerous, I almost never use them. One laser variants 2nd effect is very usefull -- the residue slows enemies down. Laser bolts are also almost impossible to dodge (fast.)

And then there are the add-ons... Cool

No, it's not. It's really not even a distortion. It's possibly mistaken - but how would anyone know?

Really? It must be that "they" decided that what you said was what you meant. How silly of "them". Obviously, from now on, when you tell us how you feel about something, we'll remember to ask you how you feel about it afterward.

That won't help, because that wasn't about grammar. It was about you clearly stating something, and then implying that you had said something different.

I'd say it's about consistency, logic, or even possibly "not being an asshat."

Good luck on that. I'm pulling for you tiger!

Apparently the scope of your assumption was too limited. They have their own bulletin board for this. Wink
