    I'm sure I've seen a thread for this, but had no joy with the search.

    Official site.

    10% off on GOG.com



    Also available on Steam with 10% off, IIRC. Looks like a kick-arse bit of gaming to me, reflexes and skill needed, score's there for replayability.

    If you have it on GOG you can get the preview download now.

    I only tried it very briefly, but to be honest I thought it was a bit shit. Got a sort of a "WOO THIS IS WHAT DRUGS ARE LIKE, TALKING HORSES AND VIOLENCE" vibe from it.

    I've preordered with getgamesgo to get the bonus expo level. Wtf is the deal with releasing at roughly the same time as Dishonored and XCom though? Basically 3 of the 5 or so games I care about this year ALL AT ONCE.

    Yep, I've pre-ordered as well. It's a hell of a game.

    This game looks five star, but I'm struggling to keep up with game releases at the mo. May buy it/may not - in February, this'll probably come on my 'play now' list.

    It's a stealthy shooty puzzler in neon, a 2D Vice City with a great soundtrack :)

    I will be shit at it.

    Click on the box on your gameshelf, there should be a 150Mb "preview" download.

    Nope :(

    I'll have another look though.

    Update: Back again. Nope, it's on my shelf but when i click it i only have wallpaper and avatars etc and the release date of the 23rd. Maybe it's only those that ordered before a certain date?

    Oh well, i'll have another look tomorrow. Thanks.

    I might have a special copy, then. Came in as part of a review for something else.

    Either way, I'm not particularly impressed by it thus far. But I fully accept it may just not be "my thing".

    Fair enough.

    The OST sounds fantastic though. Probably going to buy it in a minute.

    You going to elaborate as to why?

    Yeah. I want opinions. I really shouldn't be buying more games, but I'm finding this hard to resist.

    Justify your opinion with evidence to back it up otherwise it makes you look like a troll with nothing useful to add to a conversation.

    The game in itself is fine (though not particularly my thing, the whole planned-out-combo-massacre can be fun). It's the style. It leaves me absolutely cold, and in fact leaves me feeling deeply unsettled.

    I just finished Chapter One. Holy hell, this is hard, it's gory and it's fun. There's satisfaction in throwing an empty gun at a guy before caving their head in against a wall :)

    Is this keyboard only or can I use a pad?

    It's not working for me, Xbox controller won't work and other issues. Steam forums have a lot of people with the same problems.

    Yeah, the pad works for me, but has no way of going forward through menus so I can't start the game.

    Keyboard and mouse only for the time being.

    Yeah pad not working for me, keyboard and mouse is fine though.

    I do get a stupid error about having a later version of Visual C++ everytime I launch though as it tries to install it. The game works fine but it's a pretty half arsed launch by the looks of things.

    The GOG release is late due to last minute bug squishing. I'd expect patches for the other versions soon too.

    Can't wait to go Into The Miami Vice City Eagle's Nest!

    I am still going to be crap at this game :)

    Ha! Poop! I thought the envelope thingy showed all new messages and it's been on 9 for ages. Much appreciated though, mystery caller.

    It's still brilliant, but they probably should have held off launching it. Bethesda levels of broken.

    Might hold off for a patch then. Really like the look of this and the soundtrack sounds damned cool from what I've heard in videos.

    Selecting your mask is fucked most of the time and I'm sure it's giving me the wrong chapter as being unlocked as well as it's not the one I last failed on when I quit it.

    Certainly going to leave this alone for a while, fuck knows what they released tonight.
