We're Back!

Ok, you all know the drill. Post any game you'd recommend we check out below. Posting the game name in its own line makes things easier to read and count when we're looking over the posts.

Thanks!

Sentient

No Caption Provided

You are on the space station Icarus that is slowly crashing into the sun, president is inboard and so is an assassin, there is mysterious disease going around and alien signal has been found. You have to interact with 50+ npcs to save the day. Features a dialog system that allows you to make custom sentences. For example you can tell somebody that "Larry from engineering has the medical scanner" even if that is not true and you can say it with certain emotion (ranging from angry to happy). Really unique game, but for a reason.

Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth1

these games recently-ish came out on Steam, seem to be frequently on sale. Since he is a seasoned professional of the game criticism trade, I'd very much like to hear @alex's opinion about the land of "GameIndustri"

Terra Nova: Strike Force Centauri

It has bad FMV, power armor, and some of the earliest squad-based combat on the PC. And much like everything Looking Glass put out at the time, it was years ahead of its time and a commercial flop. It was also on sale for $2 on GOG the other day.

Gex 3: Deep Cover Gecko.

The far-superior English VA would be preferred, but I'm sure you guys would still get plenty of jollies from Shit Mountain and a lizard trying to fuck a human woman.

Running with Rifles

A great (relatively) hidden gem on Steam. It's Cannon Fodder with modern King-of-the-Hill leanings. I love it!

All three of you seem to be into 4X games to a certain extent, so this would be great to see.

Bit more Sentient hype:

You can interact also with various station system. For example if you think that problem might be that people are breathing air, you can turn the air off.

You will most likely kill all the people in the station if you interact with these - but you will find out that only after hour or so.

Sentient has a map of the station but it can be only acceded trough "Suzie"-terminals (Icarus's intranet system). You will have to find your way around using rings, octants and decks. Brilliant!

Behind the dude you can see pillars that points the direction of ring 1 octant 8 room 1 of the current deck. Could not be simpler!

Game also features state-of-the-art Hollywood style CGI-cutscenes!

Am I playing a game or watching a real blockbuster movie? I can't tell!

@dave_tacitus: I fourth Sentient. Bought that game when it was released in '97 and it seemed impenetrable at the time.

@charlie_victor_bravo, you've convinced me that Sentient has the potential to be a hell of a stream. Frankly, it was the fact that Vinny can (and probably will, at some point) turn off vital life support systems.

After unexpectedly seeing my dream of GBEast playing Toonstruck realized, I feel it's only fair to help someone else's seemingly longshot dream come true.

@rotten_avocado: I'm pretty sure I finished it (I certainly blundered through for quite a while) although can't remember much more than feeling that the current tech wasn't quite up to the game's ideas.

Agreed! Pretty sure Vinny mentioned that he just picked it up through Steam sale too. Excellent 4x strategy game.

How about Eternal Darkness?

I'd also enjoy a Daedalic adventure like Deponia or Edna.
