the saboteur is properly great, don't put it in this cruel cruel thread :(

NI, Saturday, 12 October 2013 16:12 (six years ago) link

oh man you have me tempted to run out and buy this right now

papa smango (fadanuf4erybody), Saturday, 12 October 2013 22:40 (six years ago) link

saboteur was fabulous, gtfo

No, I know, but it was a horrendous flop. Unfairly! I think it's awesome. But it still fits my criteria.

I mean BULLETSTORM is on my list but still got my number one spot that year. Deadly Premonition is also all time great. I do this out of love.

Nier is the only game this gen that i've gone back and replayed (twice!), just love running around the world listening to that amazing soundtrack while the companion characters bicker behind me. Drakengard 3 is coming out in the west next year and has the same writer/director and sound team, so hopefully it retains some of the atmosphere (Nier was a spinoff from the Drakengard series after all)

i keep thinking about picking up Nier

Does 50 Cent: Blood on the Sands fit into this niche? the voiceovers push it into it IMO, the game itself is just totally uninspired.

Charlie Brooker is entertainingly vitriolic about that game

btw, Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death is a self-aware-ish budget title that looks fairly enjoyable if you are so inclined

Andrew Kornfan, Thursday, 17 October 2013 11:45 (six years ago) link

When it hits a budget price I think I'll bite on Dragon's Crown

Ha, Ride to Hell dropped to $10 at BestBuy. I'm really tempted to get it from jjjusten's review here but... i've probably got enough legitimately good games in the backlog that it would be unwise

Nhex, Tuesday, 22 October 2013 03:37 (six years ago) link

Aliens - that's the broken one that looks like a PS2 game?

EZ Snappin, Tuesday, 10 December 2013 21:58 (six years ago) link

true of so many games, but yes

a friend picked up the Alone in the Dark reboot mentioned way upthread as a gag and oh my god this is really something

papa smango (fadanuf4erybody), Wednesday, 11 December 2013 01:55 (five years ago) link

Aliens: Colonial Marines for PC download, $1.99 just for today. Comes with coupon for $5 off an Amazon download next month, they're usually pretty good with their "Best Of" selection in January.

dudes i want to talk about Anarchy Reigns

Wendy Carlos Williams (jjjusten), Monday, 13 January 2014 18:34 (five years ago) link

so its a sequel (kind of?) to madworld, closed world beat-em-up that is also apparently a 20ish character fighting game as well - im hot garbage with regards to fighters, so i am not a good judge. dumb as a brick in many ways, weird "why is this here" vehicle timed lap racing sections, no attempt at even vague coherency, interspersed with completely out of character and hamfisted "touching" dead kid storyline. its a glorious god damn mess so far, not as broken as ride to hell (which well jesus i dont know if anything in recent memory is that broken) but so bafflingly out of step with videogames of the modern day that it is quite refreshing. its no bulletstorm, but its cheap as dirt and solidly in the spirit of this thread.

Wendy Carlos Williams (jjjusten), Monday, 13 January 2014 18:43 (five years ago) link

sounds fun, will wait for $5

Nhex, Monday, 13 January 2014 20:57 (five years ago) link

The first good argument for me to own a gaming PC. Which I don't, so infinite sadface.

jjjjusten if you like bad games and you don't have even a mid-level PC that can run garbage from 2006ish then you're missin out.

Andrew Kornfan, Saturday, 12 April 2014 04:05 (five years ago) link

I know! Curse of Mac owner. And it's a shitty "old" mac, but that still means nothing came out for it ever.

I kept seeing these two Skylight games (for Vita) pop up in PSN sales and became curious enough to look into them. And, well...holy jesus:

You dishonor your ancestors with your emoji abstention (Old Lunch), Monday, 12 February 2018 16:07 (one year ago) link

Just to be clear, these are pretty much brand new games and not something someone made for their high school computer class in 1996.

Ah ha ha ha. Just saw that this is currently on clearance sale in the PSN store and came here to post a gameplay vid, totally forgetting that I'd already ragged on this irredeemable POS. Thanks for saving me some work, Younger Lunch.

Why have more than 1,000 of my bucks disappearded? (Old Lunch), Wednesday, 6 February 2019 00:42 (ten months ago) link

To be clear, someone is responsible for making three entire games that look/play like this.
