We're at 319k. Totally pledged a wad of cash.

Impossible. There's a lot of good games - but I don't think there's a perfect game. Besides, hopefully the game I'm playing right now is my favorite game right now.

Well, according to this, he says:

NOTE: this game is single-player and PC only- I am looking at ways to get it onto other platforms though!

So I guess it could happen? But yeah, seems like a good match - even if it plays very well on the PC as well. Lovely chiptune beats :)

@pornstorestiffi: That's a good question!

If you mean the white cross in a box that you sometimes see - I always assumed that was "needs healing", as it tends to disappear shortly after I drop a medkit at their feet. The simple cross I thought was just the assault icon (like engineers have a wrench, support have 3 bullets, recon a crosshair). I've not noticed any specific icons while I was "dying."

Then again, I'm far from an expert on the subject, so I could very well be wrong - just been my feeling that there was no indication who had medkits or paddles.

Getting good 15 hours in? Sounds like Final Fantasy XIII. Does this mean Reckoning will get as much hate? Somehow... I doubt it :P

Personally, I've got serious doubts about Reckoning - the combat is the only thing that I found interesting about it. The story seemed as generic as anything I've seen in a long time.

I may still pick it up - if I find myself sufficiently bored. Though with February looking more like a November, I doubt that's going to happen.

Probably 7-9 hours into FFXIII-2 myself, and I like it so far. The timetravel seems fine, though it seems rather simply handled. Some weird language/mechanics (like "Close Gate". I understand what it does now - but it's not intuitive, especially not as I was able to do it before the game informed me that I had unlocked the ability to Close Gates :P).

It's neither revolutionary or ground breaking, probably won't convince people who despised XIII, but I enjoyed XIII and most of it's characters.

Looking forward to digging deeper into this during the weekend. :)

@pornstorestiffi: To be fair, he might not have paddles.

Then again, to me, playing assault without paddles would be INSANE. Love dem paddles. Even if they make me do stupid things when I see someone getting shot down :D

This sounds a lot more positive than a lot of other things that have been said about THQ lately, but I guess that may just be the facts of earning calls (especially ones as grim as these) needing to have a positive spin.

Either way, I think THQ has been making a lot of bold moves, and several of their games have deserved to sell better than they did.

*shrug* I'll continue recommending people to pick up SR:3, Space Marine, etc. Also, pst, I don't think Red Faction: Armaggeddon was as bad as some people are making it out to be.
