Every week we look at what people have been looking for in Google to find our website and try to answer the questions that you should be able to find answers for on our blog. This week in the Q&A section: Star Wars furnishings, Fallout bans, Halloween stuff and more. Hit the jump to check it all out.
Full Pipe would have been just a quirky odd-looking indie point-and-click adventure in the vein of Machinarium and Samorost, were it not their elder by five or six years. It doesn’t seem to have enjoyed the critical success of those later titles. The news section of developer Pipe Studio’s website claims that during a presentation of the game at the Russian Game Developer’s Conference KRI-2004 John Romero and Tom Hall (of Doom and Quake fame) were so enamoured by Full Pipe that they had to be forcibly removed from the computer. (The news story linked to in this announcement simply says they liked it a lot.)
So there’s that. But the game critics at large seem to have mostly ignored the title. Maybe it came out ahead of its time or maybe it just isn’t that good. I have no way of knowing, because I’ve never played the other two games. But I can tell you what I think about this one after the jump.
I’m finally playing again! I was on a self-prescribed hold because I needed to make time to read all of Stephen King’s Dark Tower books without distraction. It was a great experience and I recommend you read them if you haven’t, but I missed gaming nonetheless.
And now I’m at it again.
I’ve been amassing a PC game collection for the past two gameless months (The Dark Tower is a long, long story) and started off by firing up Ben There, Dan That!, an indie point-and-click adventure by Zombie Cow Studios.
Read on for my full review.
For one reason or another I have never bought anything from Xbox Live or the PlayStation Network. I’ve purchased quite a few DD games from various providers on the PC, but have so far only downloaded free demos and trials on my consoles.
Of late, however, I’ve been hearing about those great DD only titles that I’ve been apparently missing out on. After watching Vanya demo Scott Pilgrim vs The World: The Game and seeing how great it was, I decided that I should make some XBLA/PSN purchases.
Hit the jump to see my shopping list.
It’s the final week of Gamersgate‘s summer sale and oh, how good it is! After the campaign’s strong RPG-biased kick-off three weeks ago, I’ve been somewhat disappointed by Strategy and Action weeks that largely left me cold. But this We HEART indie thing that is going on now more than makes up.
After going through the list of offers I ended up owning Bob Came in Pieces (PC + Mac pack), Braid, Emberwind, The Path and Zombie Driver for the total price of EUR 14.80. Other titles on sale include critical darlings Flotilla, Machinarium, Osmos and World of Goo as well as a few other interestingly looking games such as And Yet It Moves, Plain Sight and Saira. There’s also a handful of strategy titles from JoWood.
The full list is here.
