Having downloaded the demo some time ago, I thought I should really give it a go, especially after glo and MrTom were talking about it in our party last night, and despite my light-hearted mockery of the lore, once I played it I realised that ...deep breath... it's exactly the kind of stat-laden, tactical/strategic stuff that I love. I can imagine it takes on all kinds of combinations of characters and skills in increasingly confusing strategies, and I like the idea of that.
If what the EG review says about it, in relation to PC MOBAs is true, that GoM-e is slow, slow, slow, then I'm glad I haven't got a PC that plays games, because my days of playing anything faster than this are, I fear, long behind me.
I am wrestling with myself about buying it though - I bought those points ready for the festive XBLA sales, and buying new and shiny things with it means it will take up time I should be using to play Iron Brigade and Rise of the Martian Bear.
On the other hand, now would seem to be the ideal time to play it, while other people still are, rather than when the inevitable sale comes about and everyone is playing, er, Shadow Complex 2, or something.
Maybe I'll get drunk and absolve myself of the responsibility.
