    That's it, yup - except you control one character. The depth comes in the specific talents and unlocks of that character, and then the complement of heroes your team has.

    Just watched the review - do want to try, very much. I love strategy games where you are allowed to really nerd out on unit combinations/talents/skills and the like. Essentially well balanced rock-scissors-paper-water-fire-gunpowder-flashbang. See you on it, Jive!

    Anyone else who has it, add me/yell.
    Also thanks for this nifty description, I'm definitely going to trial it over the weekend, now.

    Two maps only, though: but as I understand it, DOTA was born of one map alone - its the character mechanics that are the crucial element; the arena you fight in just has to serve them and the variety will follow. I hope.
  • Deleted user 7 December 2012 14:33:18
    I have found the concept intriguing from the little I've read. One worthy map could be a godsend if the mechanics are that deep.

    Just about to trial the demo I have a tenner earmarked for it if I see potential. And if I don't suck of course.
  • Deleted user 7 December 2012 14:50:22
    Wait on your decision until we have played and ruminated, I reckon.
  • Deleted user 7 December 2012 15:25:09
    Just played the tutorial. First impressions good, very intuitive controls. I'll play with you Red as it's only going to come into its own in multiplayer.
  • Deleted user 7 December 2012 15:37:51
    Yeah, pretty much.

    Maybe it's another small game I can champion with utmost futility.

    Working my way through G of ME at the moment. It's slick enough but I feel a little too far away from the action to figure what's happening a lot of the time. I don't think it explains itself well, but I'm hoping teething issues gives way to another Awesomenauts type experience. Got a way to go to top that though.

    I'll at least try the trial.
  • Deleted user 7 December 2012 20:45:21
    After being confused, I am loving it. so much fun. Well worth a shot - online, that is.

    So much to tinker with, and once I got tuned to what was happening to me, and what was happening to an enemy, it got easier.
  • Deleted user 7 December 2012 21:08:53
    Single path map is a bit uninteresting, but the three-way one is much better.

    Season pass only talks about characters + modes. Hopefully maps included also. At least it seems as though they have some plans for the future.

    I have only played a few matches, but am eager to try more. I like being Eowyn and healing people.
  • Deleted user 8 December 2012 11:32:07
    So after playing G:ME some more, I am enjoying it.

    The only issue I have with it is the netcode - takes a while to find a game, sometimes. However, they're patching that on the 14th, apparently. From what I have read, they've built the game for regular updates.

    Will let you lot know how it fares, if you like.

    Keep the G:ME updates coming Red - although maybe time for it's own thread.
  • Deleted user 8 December 2012 13:49:53
    I tried to create a thread yesterday but it didn't work for some reason.

    Anyway, so far it's great although it will be far better with a full team. Coff, hint, coff.

    I've been playing a bit of GME and liking it so far, although as said the matchmaking can be a bit of a drag. Feel free to add me: b0vril
  • Deleted user 8 December 2012 18:28:16
    It's a great game, currently hampered by some network issues. Brilliant.

    Patch next week, apparently. Still enjoying it a lot, however.

    Just learned that the patch includes a new 3v3 map for free, set in The Shire, and is aimed at fixing matchmaking issues.

    For what it's worth, the core game is clearly well-made, and the devs seem keen on supporting it for a while. Shall update ye all after the patch and we shall see...

    DOTW now live.

    Tropico 4 is Ł14.99 on Games on Demand, and all the DLC is half price.

    Nothing for me, so time to save points for Christmas I think.

    New list of upcoming stuff here too.

    Nothing particularly interesting (more free Kinect stuff, yay), but it does look like there's going to be a rolling Christmas period sale starting on the 18th.

    Edit: THQ sale this weekend, too. Probably not Humble Bundle prices though, I'm guessing. :)

    Lets hope its better than last year.
  • Deleted user 11 December 2012 15:38:05
    I still have some of the points sitting on my account that I bought for the Xmas sale last year!!!

    More on the way as well as I got Halo 4 & 2100 points free for signing up for 02 broadband last week.

    I also have 2100 unredeemed from the recent Tesco BLOPS2 deal.

    Please please let there be something for me to buy...

    Where's best for cheap instant points? Shopto seem to not have any at the moment.

    Our very own evilvortex is probably the best place to start. I think someone else in the swapsies thread had some too.

    Oh shit, man. I'm going to need me some points! :o

    Definitely want Mark of the Ninja and Dust, will probably also pick up Hell Yeah.

    Also want The Walking Dead, although I might just pick that up in the Steam Christmas sale instead.
  • Deleted user 13 December 2012 09:04:49
    It's probably too much to ask for Retro City Rampage to be released before the end of the year, right? :-(
