I hate lazily designed games and Arkham Asylum was far from lazy. Even though it was linear, the game created a non-linear feel by allowing you wander around and explore, whereas Modern Warfare holds your hand, yells at you or holds your hand while yelling at you.

I do hate QTEs though, they were novel in Shenmue but make me feel like developers took an early lunch in modern games.

RPS did a wee write up about an earlier version here, if Kieron Gillen recommends it, then compares it to proto-Portal, it's worth your time.

FREE GAMES!

Well, for a period of time. Team Fortress 2 is having one of it's fun free weekends for the Solider/Demoman WAR update starting Thursday (and pre-loading from, uh, yesterday). See you on the battlefield, I am not a Spy.





WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAR!

Crysis Wars, the multiplayer component of the chicken punching Predator-simulator Crysis is free from the 19th to the 29th.



WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARS!

I just bought a Laptop and Its good enough to run a few games.

I love the demo for World of Goo, but kind of feel 20 bucks is a little high. Also really dug torchlight, but I needed muliplayer to justify it over a 3 dollar version of diablo2.

Speaking of Diablo 2, Thats what im playing. Where was I, when this game came out.

Oh and Civ4 is THE SHIT!!!!

I will give Team fortress a try this weekend.
