    Yes, I had a quick look at that too - it just seems absolutely crazy. I suppose it was too much to ask for for something else where we might win something else, but what they've done just seems mad to me. Perhaps there is another audience to whom it will appeal greatly, though.

    Her?

    All the eurogamers who actually play with each other on xbl rather than just post pseudointellectual pc handwringing bollocks on the forums, love the shit out of biggy.

    Look - some Retro City Rampage achievements. Not all of them, just a few, but they sound most amusing! I hope this is back on track now.

    Had a brief try of the demo for Kung Fu Strike this morning - must say I really like it. Not exactly a retro game but the sort of game that
    would have been made in the 8-16 bit era if the consoles back then had been powerful enough.
    Reminded me a bit of Viewtiful Joe as well which is definitely a good thing in my book.
    I understand that most reviews says its repetitive but I can handle that -think Ill buy it.

    So far Joe danger 2 is nowhere near as good as the first game. I don't like the focus on the new vehicle types.

    Will stick with it and see if it gets better...

    I was unfair on Joe danger 2. It is still very good although I think I prefer the original still

    It's not a must have, and not a massive leap over the first one. The new vehicles are fun, but it lacks the focus of the original.

    I'm really loving Joe Danger The Movie. Those jet pack levels are ace!

    Plus, I keep beating Andy's scores :)

    Forgot to mention that I finished Alan Wake late last week. It was pretty good! Kind of short unless you go looking for all the pages (which I did) and only three environments so it feels rather compact, but I liked it pretty much all the way through. Nothing there to convince you if you weren't already a fan, but if you did like the original it's a nice little add-on and probably leads us on to Alan Wake 2 proper (the credits claim that Alan will return, so I'm hopeful).

    Been sort of tied up with FTL over the weekend but when not playing that I've been toying with Stacking, which seems okay but I'm not really feeling it like I did with Costume Quest.

    I was disappointed with Stacking, or more accurately I was disappointed with myself. I felt as if I should really like it but just didn't.

    Nah, Stacking's bad.

    Double Fine have this habit of making games which are really stylish and funny to capture people's imaginations, and it makes them almost immune to criticism unless you want to be flamed to all fuck by people who worship Schaefer. I love the presentation and style and stuff in all their games too, but I don't think any of them have actually had the gameplay to back it up this generation. I can't remember having much fun with anything they've made aside from Iron Brigade and even that came with some pretty major caveats (co-op, fun, single-player, horrendous).

    I wouldn't say it was 'bad', as such, it just seems somewhat shallow. There's really not a lot to the game other than 'bring the correct doll here, press button'. The results are often quite funny and it has a lot of charm, but it feels like it needed more complexity in the game design.

    I think Stacking was just disappointing after the minor treasure that was Costume Quest. It's fine, but just didn't have that extra layer of charm I was expecting.
  • Deleted user 17 September 2012 09:58:10
    Stacking was great for what it was; a stylish game with little substance but at least it provided a fair few laughs when played with a kid who finds fart gags the best thing since Ben Ten.

    Personally, I found it a rather charming and refreshing change of pace from the run-of-the-mill space shooters and whatnot that clutter up XLBA.

    It was very overpriced on release though as there wasn't much to the game whatsoever from a technical point of view.

    When you play stacking make sure you do everything in the level. If you just rush though it its pretty dull with no challenge

    I enjoyed Stacking a lot. Super charming, and it's a nice looking game too just in terms of the visual style and general aesthetic. Not much challenge but that wasn't why I played it.
