Lightbulb Random game talk

About:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So...

- you found an interesting article/news about some game,
- you found a video of a game that probably no one here saw before,
- you are too lazy to start a new topic about some game,
- ...

What are you waiting for? Post, share, discuss...
Increase your penis size... I mean post count.



------------------------------------------------------------------------------


I found an interesting game/concept that was submitted for IGF 2012. It is called Parallax.

@Dave3d: Haha, looks pretty confusing, I agree.
The black and white style reminds me of "TAG The power of paint", a IGF game that became Portal 2 later.

Maybe Parallax turns out to be Portal 3 ?

What is the purpose of "R..... t........" thread in the other subforum ?

This is a "random game related stuff that doesn't deserve a thread" thread.
I saw similar stuff on other forums so I thought I give it a shot here.
There are a lot of threads here with less then 10 posts. IMO it would be better to keep all these small announcements/news/sales... in one place.

Im kinda missing the run and gun survival action genre. By that I mean games that play like Dino Crisis. I mean sure over the shoulder and third persons are one of my favourite geamplay styles, but sometimes static camera which adjust their angle screen by screen is also pretty cool. (IF DONE PROPERLY)

It's also kinda sad that my love of high speed adventure games (Sonic the hedgehog) is only really covered by either HIS particular series, or racing games. ;-; I need more fast running platformers. XD

I have a similar things for action games. I want more hack n' slash games that have punishing difficulty, stylish combat, deep complexity, and a substantial amount of gameplay-style choice (not like RPG choice, but rather weapon/style/equipment selection, etc.). Right now it kinda just biold down to Ninja Gaiden and Devil May Cry (primarily Black and 3, respectively, but NG: II is also pretty good).

Speaking of Sonic, Generations just went up for preorder on Steam. I didn't know they were doing a PC version.

Sonic the Hedgehog 3 / Sonic & Knuckles are my favorite games in the genre. I always found em to be much more fun than mario games, although to be fair, I only played Super Mario Bros and a fraction of some other mario game I can't quite remember.

Actually... I didn't play more Sonic games either. But the one I did play was freakin awesome!

I only played Sonic on my friends Sega Gamegear. We played together and only managed to finish it once (those diamonds required to catch the final boss were hard to collect). And yes, it was a more advanced game than SMB .

Life was hard without "save" feature, but back then it was never a problem to replay the same parts of the game hundreds of times. But now, I don't have the nerves for that. I am spoiled, like many others. When did it happen ? And now even developers avoid making a challenging game because of that.

I'm tempted because the PC version is cheaper, but the console version is probably the safer bet. Maybe I'll hold off for a little while after release and see what people say about the PC port.

I always did and still suck at most life-based games, (like Contra, and even SMB). Sonic 3 on the other hand seemed to be more forgiving, either that or I was hoarding lives like there was no tomorrow.

Edit: I think I just said that I suck at life...

Super Meat Boy isn't life-based so he probably meant Super Mario Bros.

Context Fiendian, context... we were talking about old stuff so its Super Mario Bros. Not to mention e_V already wrote the full name

Speaking of Sonic have you seen project Sonic 2 HD. It is a fan remake of the original and it looks pretty darn good.

I have seen that before, I've even read a little bit on the forum where they're making it. It's kind of interesting because it's a community project where anyone can contribute, so it's not just one team that's working on it. Those guys are seriously picky about making everything look right. Even if the art looks good but is slightly different from the original, they'll critique it until it looks 100% accurate. It's actually kind of cool to see that level of quality assurance on a community project.

Sonic Fan remix or something did a better job at recreating Sonic than Sega ever did. I'll look it up when i can be bothered.

Battlefield 3 vs. Modern Warfare 3

These are games that don't interest me much. I liked them more when they were set during WW2 period. However as a PC "gamer" I respect that Battlefield's creators have decided to put so much focus on the PC version. IMO they really made a great looking game which modern PCs/GPUs enthusiasts were waiting for.

We all know what Ubisoft thinks about piracy on PC, here is what Gabe Newel says about piracy in Russia and succes of Steam there (from PC Gamer interview):

Wise man Gabe Newell, wise man. So he figured out that people like you more if you treat them better; if only everyone else had his amazing powers of common sense!

(Slight sarcasm, but not really, Valve is awesome, and so is Gabe)

Im wondering if I should get Jurassic Park. I mean I love the movies and this one helps close some of the plot holes and loose ends but I'm worried since it's all QTE's and CSIesque movement. I dunno if I'll enjoy it.

I mean I enjoyed Jurassic Park on the Genesis and Operation Genesis the park builder. GB and GBA had some great titles too. But this. Eugh

Cracked.com article on Game DLCs (summary):

Quote:
...It'd be a less pointless spiral of financial insanity if you twisted dollar bills into mobius strips and set fire to them in pentagram, and the result would be less damaging to your soul.
Both entertaining and true! (Also, OH MY GONADS about that Train Simulator 2012 DLC thing!)
