Legend of Grimrock 2 review. All I can say is  " wowzers", it looks good

 

And it appears harder than the first one

Cute how the lady barely gives a **** about her (presumably) husband being left behind. :lol:

 

I thought it was her dad.

 

Also, they launched off in **** shaped rockets.  Misogyny!

It looks like I'll have to give Evil Within a miss. The internetz are boiling with discontent over a horrific port, where no controls can be-reassigned. I love to have my arrow keys around the arrow keys, and not the WASD-setup, for instance. Perhaps I get to try it on PS4 later instead.

Oh my. This is a definite no go for me then. I always use a custom control scheme.

I watched that trailer muted, while listening to the ISIS song.

Laughs were had.

I'd say the answer to that question is kind of like the answer to "who's the sucker in this poker game?"*

After watching that C:BE video, and a few more on Steam, Im sorely tempted to preorder. Ive never played a Civ game but this seems like a good jumping in point that caters to my sci-fi taste.

I have played hundreds and hundreds of hours of CiV alone (and thousands of hours in the Civ series), and I can say this much: It's a more sleek and Panzer General-like version of Civ with hexes and less micro-management. And C:BE has lots in common with CiV. Personally, some of the immersion got lost, but some of the fun of the CiV-series, especially combat, got even more fun and more user-friendly. It took me a while to get used to CiV, but now I really like it. If you're looking for an Alpha Centauri fit for the year 2014, based on some cool new research in astrobiology and astronomy and some over-the-top sci-fi aliens, I'd say that you won't regret trying C:BE out. :)

 

EDIT: Judging by gameplay vids, C:BE is a much tougher game at the start, and getting a foothold or two after the first founded Central will require more boldness and risks. You will be more vulnerable, and the other factions will arrive later, in succession, somehow. Also, the tech tree is replaced by a very neat tech web.

It's just a cutscene. The game devs more than likely had nothing to do with it. 

Not necessarily, sometimes there is great talent on a development team that can manage the level of quality required for a cinematic model. Mostly within cinematic games, so in this case you might be right.

I felt like buying a new game, then I realized that the only thing that's come out in the past six or so months is the "definitive" sleeping dogs, which is apparently a slideshow on the ps4. A lot of "why not" games like the new cod and gta v/ps4 are going to get skipped this year because they release simultaneously with DAI. I might pick up wolfenstein if it's gotten cheaper, or just, y'know, boot up something old and save my money. Hmpf.

You're a cheery wee bugger, Nep. Have I ever said that?

Ooh I can allready hear the Weenies starting to squeal.

Quite an experience to live in misery isn't it? That's what it is to be married with children.

I've seen things you people can't even imagine. Pearly Kings glittering on the Elephant and Castle, Morris Men dancing 'til the last light of midsummer. I watched Druid fires burning in the ruins of Stonehenge, and Yorkshiremen gurning for prizes. All these things will be lost in time, like alopecia on a skinhead. Time for tiffin.

 

Tea for the teapot!

He must have an inter-dimensional portal in his jacket. He put 2 magazines, two grenades and a knife in the same pocket. :lol:

That loading action also looks like a sure way to jam an ak family gun. :p
