Worms Reloaded - Who's Buying It?

Posted by kevinski (459 posts) -

While I first played the original Worms back when I was in high school, I never really got into it until I played Worms Armageddon and Worms World Party in college. More recently, I purchased Worms 2: Armageddon for XBLA. It brought back a lot of memories, although I did learn one important lesson from playing it: I can't ninja rope for shit with a d-pad. Enter Worms Reloaded, the upcoming PC installment of the series that'll initially be released on Steam on August 26th (although I assume that people who pre-purchase it will actually get to play on the 25th).

I've already pre-purchased it. I mean, what's not to love? It'll be awesome enough playing a new Worms game with keyboard and mouse support. Better still, I won't need to leave the damn disc in the disc tray this time around. (Sure, that's a minor gripe, but it was ridiculous when you consider the fact that the games didn't install the vast majority of the game's audio to your hard drive.) I'm really looking forward to getting back into the swing of things (literally) by honing my ninja rope skills, as well as better adapting myself to the new weapons without making mistakes due to the awkward controls of the XBLA installment.

I already own two XBLA Worms games and I've spent a lot of money on games recently so I'll pass.

Looks pretty great, I will probably end up buying it.

I really liked Worms 2 for the XBLA, so I might get it.

Worms is the shit yo.
 
As a Brit, I'm getting ripped off by Steam prices, so I'm looking for a Yank who's willing to buy a 4-pack for me and some bros. I could save almost 50% doing that.
 
But yeah, I am hoping this won't be some shitty-ass console port which was gimped up already then not quite ungimped.

How much does it cost for you?

It looks cool, but it's too pricey for what is essentially an updated version of Worms 2: Armageddon. I'm sure I'll end up picking it up in a steam sale or something, but I'm not paying £16 for it.

I like Worms as much as the next man, but could they possible milk this franchise any more?  Never before has such a mediocre developer survived for so long off the back of such a mediocre franchise.

I'm a long time Worms Fan, and I don't have a Worms game on my computer, so I may pick this up. Additionally, I hope that SteamWorks will deal with some of the problems I had with players on Worms in the past who were jerks (using racist language, etc.)

I played a ton of Worms Armageddon like a decade ago, so I'll probably buy Reloaded, eventually.

If I were to buy it myself by itself it would be £16.
 
If I got someone from the States to buy it for me in a 4-pack, it would be £9.
