Is Deus Ex anything more than an over hyped Alpha Protocol? I still need to finish that game, and the characters atleast seem a lot better than what I see in previews for Deus Ex.

Generally speaking, big business is good at making bombastic titles, small business is good at working creatively with their limitations.


Agreed there. I'm not sure if I'll ever buy a big game title again until one of those select few come along that are worth it(which is what I've been doing for the last few years anyway).

It's got pro's over DX and con's over DX. But IMO AP is better.

Of course countless reviewers and gamers disagree.

Well I think I'd be disagreeing with them. I'll take a game that does one thing great over one that does many things but isn't great at any, and almost fails at a few.

Don't think STEAM has anything I want at the moment.

Actually, as I did pick up DE:HR in the aforementioned Amazon sale, but haven't gotten to playing it yet (thanks to Shogun 2, Frozen Synapse, and a strategy-gaming itch that needed scratching), I should ask: Is the DLC particularly worthwhile or indispensable?

I didn't realise the two games had anything in common. Wait, I still don't. :)

Uh? Nope. Completely different type of approach to level design/problem solution. Deus Ex actually has good gameplay too, so that's a plus.

Still haven't gotten anywhere in the missing link. Having my carefully crafted build ruined and having to do it all over again just didn't seem that interesting. The vanilla game is the best of its kind in a while.

Question: Is Dead Island any good? What's the closest game to compare?

It's OK but not so hot as a single player game, it's a bit like an FPS version of Dead Rising without the humour, I never completed it.

Meh, you just have to think of it as a separate (mini-)game, which is what it really is. I liked it, mostly because I was better at the game at that point and so enjoyed going at it without super powers. Also, I wanted it to be the first game where I get and maintain 100 % on the PS3, and thus had to do it Factory Zeroed. :lol:

They ran out of third party prizes. If you go for any gift pile achievements, you can only get valve coupons and games now.

Tried out a bunch of demos. After playing them all for at least 5 minutes each, I ended up buying 2 games. Rochard was a must (got the version including the awesome soundtrack). Just plain fun. Secondary choice was Divinity 2 The Dragon Knight Saga (2 games in one)

I think Rosbjerg mentioned the PC port was really ****ty.
