Enjoy it! It's a fantastic game. It's the best Resident Evil we have seen in years and perfectly blends the feeling of the older RE games with a little bit of the action from RE4.

I wonder if the rumors are true and it will end up on the home consoles (Of course it's true, it's Capcom afterall). :lol:

yeah I got the game thinking I was excited to play all these 2D levels in HD but truthfully, the 3D levels were so well done that a lot of them ended up being my favorites.


Yeah, I loved this one too

You guys have been talking about the Sonic kart racing game. I don't know if you guys watch Breaking Bad, but I've seen Sonic games being played on that show, one of which was all star racing I believe. I wonder if the people behind that show are Sonic fans

Here we go:

Can't get much more exposure for Sonic than to have him on what many people have called the best show on television

EDIT: Some of my favorite 2D stuff they did

1. Sniper Elite V2 (PS3)(TPS)
2. Teen Agent (PC)(Point and Click Adventure)
3. Alpha Protocol (PS3)(RPG)
4. Beneath A Steel Sky (PC)(Point and Click Adventure)

I asked recently what genre I should play, and several folks recommended I play more point and click adventures, so I decided not to let them down. Since it was free on GOG, I decided I would go with a classic: Beneath A Steel Sky. It's funny (probably not always intentionally so), and the game combines a graphic novel introduction with a cyberpunk atmosphere with virtual reality segments out of something that William Gibson would write, albeit not quiet as cool as he made cyberspace out to be.

So yeah, I had quite a few chuckles and a couple of truly laugh out loud moments, such as when Foster changes into a radiation suit and reveals he is wearing a sweater with a teddy bear on it. Good times. Or the Divine Punishment. You'll have to play it to see what that is, but I guarantee you will find it as unexpected as I did.

And for the sake of argument, Sonic sucks and you suck for liking him. Also, your mother. And stuff. Yeah.

Awesome! I've started this game, but never finished it. Revolution Software makes one of my favorite P&C adventure games ever, Broken Sword: The Shadows of the Templars, so I've always wanted to finish this one. I got it on GOG too (obviously) and will get to it this year! Maybe!

I say go for it. It shouldn't take long to beat(I installed it Sunday night), so it's a quick gaming fix and an entertaining one.

Admittedly I also have a copy of Broken Sword for PS1...

^ You need to play Broken Sword on the PC, the original (and the directors cut with additional scenes) is an amazing game.

Beneath A Steel Sky is one of my all time favorites! The atmosphere and world the game creates is simply amazing.

I may play Beneath a Steel Sky myself soon, once I finish going through all the Sam & Max games. I'm already in a PC adventure game state of mind so I could easily jump into Beneath a Steel Sky

I'm actually starting to believe that point and click adventure games are the best genre to introduce someone to gaming. Anyone who has enough skill with a mouse and keyboard to browse the internet can play a PC adventure game

Hmm, I also have access to Lure of the Temptress, another game by the same company. I might give that one a go sometime soon, though for now I'm once again debating what I will play next.
