@-cerberus- Formulating an opinion by spending a couple of hours with a game is one thing, but completing L4D on Expert is quite another. You must have put in at least 50 hours to do that, maybe more. I know I sank a LOT of time into co-op and still didn't finish off Expert, mostly because it felt like too much hard work. Hats off to you for playing a game you hate for so long to finish on Expert. It took some of our friends above many, many runs and they're what I would call expert players. You must have been playing the game for a very looonnnng time.

@-cerberus- If that's the case, then you put an awful lot of effort into something you hate, which is pretty weird behaviour, imo. Weird!

@Tomo Nice piece of writing there, which genuinely brought a lump to my throat. They were the best of times ever for gaming, a sublime period and lightning in a bottle. Biggy will never forgive you for missing him off the list though!

So, it's just like L4D then. Play with randoms and it's pretty bloody terrible. Play with friends on Versus and it's transforms into one of the most sublime multiplayer experiences of all time.

This is a brilliant (I'm not going to say little) game. Relaxing and frustrating in equal measure, it a shame that games like this on the Indie channel don't get more exposure. This is a step in the right direction though.

It doesn't look as though this will do for Frogger what Pacman DX CE did for Pacman.

Very neon in the same way though.

This game is nothing less than magical for those who are both nostalgia inclined and who have an eye on the future. It's utterly brilliant. Just getting lost is awesome.

Sine Mora Review

@cloudskipa


"The screen ratio is there to help make it easier to see oncoming bullets just like the letterbox display for vert shmups, which I presume makes sense to you?"

How does it make it easier to see oncoming bullets? Genuine question.

I thought that vert shmups were bordered because their original incarnations were in arcades, so had long screens. May be being a bit daft there though.

@Der_tolle_Emil The aspect ratio is 2.39:1, or widescreen cinema standard. I dunno, something about it just feel a bit strange in a game like this.

It's surprising that none of the reviews I've read have mentioned the aspect ratio oddness.

Yeah, an absolute stunner of a game. Well done Supergiant and Greg! I'd admit though, I would like to see a sequel, if the format can remain fresh. I'm also playing through NG+ and loving it as much as the first time round.

Shoot 1UP is indeed a brilliant addition to the Indie games channel on the 360. Most of the games priced above the 80 point mark have no right to do so, compared to greats like this and I maed a game, or Miner Dig Deep. Great stuff.

Did somebody get paid to take photos of geeks with their back turned to the camera? Very odd set of shots. I'd love to see the bad ones, they'd be pretty funny I reckon.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars - Republic Heroes

BinaryBob101

J is my just eleven Son. J loves Star Wars. Possibly more than me, or his Mum. J would probably watch, play, or build Star Wars rather than do anything else. On downloading this demo and giving the controller to him, he played it for two minutes before almost slamming it back down on the table saying, "This is NOT how a Star Wars game should be!"

I felt his pain. He's correct and I couldn't deny his frustration.

This is bullshit.

Left 4 Dead: Crash Course

BinaryBob101

9 years ago

Just gotta chime in to echo local and Floyd's thoughts. L4D is not a game to play solo. It's all about the Versus. I've been playing up to three matches a night since March (although I have cut down significantly since then). Every game is new, every game is different and the atmosphere in each game is different too, depending on who you play with.

With the advent of the release of Crash Course we've been given a short, sharp shock of a campaign - which is very cool, but again the Versus is where the game comes into it's own. Last night I had three Versus matches varying from 45 minutes to 90 minutes, all three were bloody great fun and were worth the 560 points for that night's play alone.

Sadly, I don't own a PS3 otherwise this would be bought instantly. However, I've given the soundtrack a listen and it's bloody great. If you don;t have the game I do advise downloading it now. GO DO IT! :)
