This is absolutely true. I liked the game, but I forced myself to 100% it and I ended very burned with some of the bonus levels. I don't consider it a 4/10 game by any means, more like a 7/10.

The levels weren't that hard, but the sprint function doesn't work very well and there were points were I'd die constantly in the same spot because I did not start running facing a certain direction (yeah, really). The game also crashed a lot of times, and that added to the frustation. In the end, I enjoyed uninstalling it, but overall I liked it.

What annoyed you about it? They made a lot of nice changes to the Steam version. It controls much better with a mouse, and there are a lot of little touches like how it starts you at the point of your last hydra rather than always starting you at the beginning of the level.

Can't buy it at the US store either. For some reason Remedy weren't able to do pre-purchases or pre-loads for AW on Steam.

Because the game is mediocre, are some bad decisions in the game design that made it frustrating, not because the game is hard is because is annoying, like the fuckin bird, the flying enemies, animations deaths, etc. Also are bugs in timing gameplay and has zero charisma in his world and characters, feel like a cheap phone game with good graphics...

4/10

I finished the game but did not try to get gold in all levels as I was just not enjoying it that much . I have to say I agree with you on everything besides the world and characters lacking charisma and the score, I think a 6/10 it's more adequate.

So true. I promised myself to not buy any games full price this year, I broke my promise because of Eden and I don't regret it at all. I'm having so much fun. Once this game has a sale I'm considering gifting it to some friends.

Though GMG's 33% off coupon sounds more tempting, even though I'm not really interested in the game - too many AAA games in my backlog as is.

Looks to be like they jumped the gun and withdrew saying an actual percent discount :|

edit: they also seem to be really adamant about referring to their 40% darkness 2 deal as 50%, unless us yanks are missing out to their .co.uk deals.

Pretty much yeah. The mechanics never really feel speed friendly so when you hit the levels that demand speed it can be quite frustrating. That's only two or so of the main levels though.

If the GMG version is Steam activated, I may buy it even though I beat the game on the 360.

I never played the two DLC chapters and a getting them for free with a better version of the game for $20 sounds pretty great.

Avernum's predecessor, the Exile series games were probably the games that really got me into PC gaming in the first place. Exile 2 and 3 in particular. Very old school style RPGs. They were diamonds in the rough and easily the best games on the half-dozen or so CDs in this shareware compilation I had.

I'm still having an odd problem with Sonic Generations. Basically, I don't get any logos or UI, and no hud at all durning gameplay. When I press pause, I can hear the menu sounds, but can't see anything. I tried re installing, which made it work once, but never again.

Anyone had this issue?

It'll go live alongside the game. Code will either be available via their Twitter, or on the homepage of GMG.

This may be old but...

http://www.2kgames.com/blog/civiliza...pack-announced

Fans of Civilization V have been begging me for an answer to this question for quite some time: will Civilization V get an expansion pack?

Today I am extremely excited to tell you all that yes, it will! Sid Meier's Civilization V: Gods & Kings is currently slated for a late Spring 2012 release.

It will come as no surprise to those of you who are familar with expansion packs for previous Civilization games that Gods & Kings will add more techs, units, buildings, Wonders, and playable Civilizations. But what about the big brand new game elements that will change the way you conquer the world? Let me lay it out for you:

Tons of New Stuff. I know I just mentioned it, but I want to draw attention to just how many new things we've got here: 27 new units, 13 new buildings, 9 new wonders, and 9 new playable civilizations. Among the new civilizations are the Netherlands (William I, Prince of Orange), the Celts (Boudicca), and the Mayans (Pacal the Great).

Religion. That's right; quite possibly the most requested major addition to the game is coming in the Gods & Kings expansion. Using the new "Faith" resource, you'll be able to found your own religion and grow it from a simple Pantheon of the Gods to a world-spanning fully-customized religion.

Reworked Combat System. The expansion has a reworked combat system along with an AI that places more emphasis on balanced army composition. Among the changes to the combat system is the addition of melee naval units, which will force you to really rethink the way you execute your naval assaults.

Enhanced Diplomacy, with Espionage. In addition to being able to establish embassies with your rival civilizations, spies will now be an important part of how you conduct your foreign affairs. Surveilling foreign cities, stealing advanced techs, and garnering influence with city-states are some of the things you'll be able to do with this new powerful mechanic.

New City-States. With religion being added to the game, it only made sense to introduce Religious city-states which will interact with your religion in special ways. In addition, Mercantile city-states will be attractive for those of you who love to grow your civilization's treasury. All city-states will use the greatly expanded quest system, making city-states more dynamic and diplomatic victories more challenging, while decreasing the importance of gold when dealing with city-states.

New Scenarios. Three new scenarios will be coming in Civilization V: Gods & Kings. Experience the fall of Rome, explore the medieval era, and my personal favorite: a unique scenario in a Victorian science-fiction setting.

So there you have it. What do you think? I'm sure you guys have tons of questions, so come on over to our forums and let us know! Or if you'd prefer, you can also reach us on Twitter or Facebook. We'll be reading all of your questions!
