    Yup, they're listening to the community and gradually walking it back towards Sanctum 1, which is nice to see. I'm also glad Coffee Stain has decided not to have an ego about this, it further raises my opinion of them.

    It's worth noting that, having gotten to the end, the game does steadily get better as it goes, and culminates in a final level genuinely worthy of the original game. It's just unfortunate that the pinnacle of the sequel should only be equal to the original, and that the nadir should be right at the beginning of the game and so very far below the original.

    Personally, I'm quite enjoying what I've played so far, but I'm coming to the idea that what I really, really want from Coffee Stain Studios is a Mirror's Edge-like game in the Sanctum universe.
    If there's one thing I love about the Sanctum games is the setting and the art direction. Absolutely breathtaking sights in Sanctum 2, and a freerunning kind of game where I could explore it all would be a-freaking-mazing.
    The art design and easter eggs are a treat in both games, that's for sure. I detested Mirror's Edge, but I'd certainly be up for a game that allowed me to explore this universe a bit.

    I have made some headway in Lego Batman: Direct Current Super Heroes with my kids, ridiculously the mid mission save feature flat out doesn't work on the pc version of the game meaning this casual game need a whole hour or more of play between real checkpoints, this isn't true during the lovely open world bits where checkpoints are often fractions of a minute apart.

    You know, anticipating a reaction like that I started thinking about just exactly why I didn't enjoy it. Setting aside the parts of the design that everyone agrees are broken (the gun fights, for example) it occurs to me that there's a common thread to many of the widely loved games I dislike: timing. I really hate games whose core gameplay revolves around striking a key or combination of keys at a very precise moment. It's not really any wonder I'm mostly a strategy and RPG guy, I suppose.

    Now playing Into the Dark.

    If you can look past some technical hickups and if you have enough background knowledge to get most of the jokes, itīs simply the most offensive, trashy, funny, scary and awesome game ever. However, Iīm kinda stuck in Level 6 right now as I didn īt find the solution for the adventure quest, and I donīt want to finish it shooter-styled.

    That still doesn't remove the need for timing your jumps if you want to move through the buildings/rooftops at an acceptable pace, and for better or worse, that's when the game truly shines and manages to immerse you in it.

    Pretty much mandatory in a game like this to take all curves drifting.
    Is this really true? So far I've always waited until the lights got red, and then released to get the boost. I didn't notice that it got larger the longer I waited. Everything else said on this page stands, drift and flip as often as possible and you're good.

    The good news is that I just broke the 2 million simbucks record in my city vault and gonna break it again in three. The bad news is land value is going to shit abd I don't know why. If it's about funding for the stuff I've been cutting I'm gonna have to zone more but I just don't understand what affects land value aside from basic civil infrastructure

    But then what's the point? I tend to play games for challenge, since it's an extremely rare game that manages to present a story that actually catches my interest. If the only challenge to be had is twitch timing, then there's no satisfaction in turning it off and nothing but frustration in turning it on. In short: why bother?

    Just remember that there are some parts of the game that combat isn't even necessary and you could skip it entirely by running away. 'Fighting' Ropeburn sucks, still.

    SS2 is really scary. random sounds, fucking monkeys everywhere. really keeps one on edge all the time.
    also stepped on some worm goo and got poisoned. it was very unpleasant.

    I enjoyed mirror's edge for the navigational puzzles, and the sense of transformation. Early on you view the world like any fps, but when you start to see the full scope of motion available instinctively.

    Now go to your local shop try to get there without spotting at least 2 vault points.

    Red lights are boost level one. There are three levels of boost. ^^

    Shadowgrounds? It's not amazing but certainly entertaining enough for a couple of hours of fun.

    A top-down shooter in a WH 40K universe on a Space Hulk or something similar sounds so good...

    I'm playing Elemental Colon Fallen Enchantress Colon Legendary Heroes.

    I think it's rather good. The mechanics seem to have been subtly improved.
    Irrelevant on further examination of the rest of the thread.
