FUCK YES LA-MULANA!
Valve Grabs Another 10 Games From Greenlight
La-Mulana is pretty fucking awesome. At first I thought it was just going to be a traditional Metroid style romp but, then the game world started to open up. The mix of high difficulty and huge variety of puzzles is what really surprised me about La-Mulana. Everything in the game feels as if it was there for a purpose. On top of all of this is an intriguing lore that surrounds the ruins as you explore.
The lack of Euro Truck Simulator 2 displeases me.
Why? It's already Greenlit, it just needs to be released.
From the Greenlight page:
We would like to extend a huge THANK YOU to the big family of Euro Truck Simulator 2 fans! Your help was fantastic - our game is coming to Steam!
We'll be working hard to get ETS2 on Steam as fast as possible, but we have yet to take care of paperwork and handle all the technical details to make the Steam release happen, so please have patience with us.
That was at the beginning of December, so it shouldn't be too much longer.
Nothing that I see here that really screams buy me.
P.S. Where the hell is Black Mesa? I know I can download it but why is it not on steam? Didn't that thing get Greenlight?
Will probably be released once it's done. They're still missing the final couple of chapters.
Get voting COOK, SERVE, DELICIOUS right now, you sons a bitches.
Weak. The racing game, Distance, by the Nitronic Rush guys should've made the cut over Leisure Suit Larry, at the least. Nothing against LSL especially, it just seems like more of a nostalgia/retro reference game than an actual....GOOD game. An itch that's fine to scratch, but not when other games are actually trying to find a foothold and get into the market.
Kind of weird to me that Cook, Serve, Delicious! hasn't made it yet.
The iPad version is almost the essential version.
I would almost agree with you, but they are almost like 2 completely different games when you compare the PC and iPad versions.
There's something raw about the PC version where it almost feels like a typing game, capturing almost the same urgency and magic of Typing of the Dead. The iPad version while still a great and quality version, feels like more of a known quantity. The iPad version is clearly the better fitting shoe, but something about using the keyboard for input on this game makes it really special.
Some of these look cool but the continued lack of The Pinball Arcade on Steam is really distressing and makes me wonder if I really want the steam community to have this much say in what goes up. How the hell does a game with tables licensed from The Twilight Zone and Star Trek not immediately get fast tracked on to the service? Last I hard they were only in the top 80 or something, but I'm sure all the people who voted for the game would pay for some tables as well.
It's fine that valve have democratized their service but it seems that in some instances more niche games are going to get the shaft in favor of more in vogue indie puzzle platformers and horror games.
It's a shame. Every time they announce more games have been green-lighted, I keep hoping The Pinball Arcade finally gets the go ahead but no luck. I'd be willing to part with 15 or 20 bucks to be able to play the Twilight Zone board, even if it's just a digital recreation, again.
La-Mulana is pretty good guys. You will rip your hair out :)
So exactly how similar is it to something like Spelunky XBLA? Because if the answer is very, I can get behind it.
I wouldn't say it similar to splunkny that much. The jumping is kinda off in La-Mulana but it still a very good tough and maybe unfair game :)
I know Kentucky Route Zero was Greenlit, just waiting for them to come to an agreement with the games makers.
Hopefully it comes to Steam sooner than later. Can't wait for that game. Assuming it's episodic content, we'll be doing a little bit more waiting in between episodes...
