Other PC Games Thread.
So with the film and music threads still going and being discussed... why don't we get some discussion going on something on topic to the board? What other games are you playing now?

Left 4 Dead Looks Like Fun 
:D 
Yeah 
But I'll need friends to play it. 
Left 4 Dead Gameplay 
World Of Goo Demo 
is it full of copy protection spyware rootkit trojans? 
 
Get it from steam. 
World Of Goo 
started to get annoying, then it got worse. I kind of just want to be fucking done with it already.

megaman, your continued paranoiac terror of absolutely everything on the internet continues to amuse me. when are you going to completely snap and go off the grid? 
Hmm? 
Where you at Lun? I'm finishng up island 3 and still find it amusing, almost wish the puzzles were a bit harder though. 
 
So we've gone from world changing experience, to annoying, to just wanting to be fucking done with it. Sounds awesome! 
Bwaha Lun 
that made me laugh out loud :D

maybe it's because i know a lot of stuff :P

xss that takes over your badly configured router? check. xss that acts as a proxy so the attacker can use your line for requests? check. [...]

Every time they teach you a new goo type you use it for like two puzzles and then it's on to the next new thing. The concepts are never built upon or exploited, so instead they have to ramp up difficulty by making every puzzle a new gimmick like "NOW build a tower on a tilty platform that heaves your entire wobbly painstaking creation into the lava at the slightest provocation" instead of exploring where the depth really is.

I quit last night because I finally got my balloon-driven goo tiltawhirl thing to lean over to the pipe the right way, but it stopped in exactly the wrong spot for the pipe to start vaccuuming, but still close enough for all the remaining goo to want to jump to the pipe, so I thought I had finally beaten the level and instead was treated to the sight of every last one of my gooballs leaping gleefully to their deaths. fuck off world of goo. 
 
"Why aren't any of you playing World of Goo yet? This game is awesome. I stayed up far too late last night playing it without realizing - it's one of those games.

The puzzle design and the types of goo are so far extremely awesome, and the game has a very tongue in cheek sense of humor about itself. Intensely cute and squeezable on the surface, but there's an underlying note of sad mystery that really pulls you along, wondering where the bizarre Burtonesque story of these gooballs is going.

I want to play it right now, but I have to wait."

:P 
World Of Poo 
It is cute, but after seeing wobbly-bobbly eyes for more than 10 minutes you might want to pinch them. The sounds are cute too but after a while each "weeeee! woooooo!" and "bloolooobloobiboo?" makes me wanna hit the monitor. Not to mention the dumpa-dumpa-dumpa 20 second "music" loop (is it my imagination or is the sound compressed as fuck? I really get a headache from it.) that is full-on ear and brain penetration.
The art style ranges from "oh nice" over "lol <3 *snugglez u* deviantart-emo" to "please let me kill that thing".
The tongue in cheek humour might be ok if it was done occasionally and well (anyone remember how fantastic the Monkey Island series did this?) but it seems the whole concept of the game is "lol we are so > lololol that we are totally awesome and indie and shit".
The levels were either boring or frustrating so far. The one I am at (Red Carpet) took me several attempts to even figure out what to do because there was no fucking visual feedback on some thing (you'll know if you play(ed) it) suggesting the first idea that comes to mind won't work. But then it does, hohoho.

All in all, play random free puzzle games, you won't miss anything. That being said, just one more level, then I quit.

Thanks For Pointing That Out Again Willem 
My opinion of the game changed the more I played it. Why is that unusual? The first half of the game presented a lot of character and opportunity for depth that the second half didn't bring to fruition.

My opinion of you keeps changing, too. 
 
I love watching people get sucked into hype and then having the joy crushed from their bodies, spraying from every available orifice. It pleases me. 
Well 
I'm nearing the end and I'm not nearly as negative about it as Lun and Spirit. I still think it's funny and fun (yeah those are 2 different things). I agree that they could have pushed the puzzles further, they all feel fairly easy to me and never really posed much of a challenge. 
 
The more I see of Far Cry 2 the more it gives me wet dreams. I was considering holding off on this game until after I play Fallout 3 but I just don't know if I can wait until then.

It just looks fucking bad ass. 
Farcry2 
Yeah it looks more interesting than Crysis anyways, but I'm careful with Ubisoft games these days, they know how to promote them, and I often end up dissapointed.
Won't be buying it right away anyways, cause once again they are being idiots and decided that they would not do a Steam release in Europe, bastards. 
The Medical Community Will Catch On 
 
Why is anyone tasting Lunaran? :(

I suspect it was done without his knowledge and/or consent. 
 
Isn't he more towards the middle there? *ducks* 
Ahhhhh 
Damn. Brutal. Brutal

Oh snap!
