    Now for a game that tries to shape itself around realism in the fact that you only find weapons in realistic locations (pistol on a guard, once ammo is out its useless) and create realistic weapons (like nails in a bat etc) for it to then go down the "you have super human abilities if you kill x number of zombies" is a bit annoying. why not just have it like GTA. you werent superhuman, you had no special abilities, just you and a gun and hopefully some skill.
    my guess is it means you will end up meeting zombies that are the average zombie stumbler, up to ones that are mutated and you need to use abilities to kill them.
    it just takes the shine off for me
    Yea bit worried about that. Decided to cancel my steam pre-order and let it hit and see how I feel about it.

    i seriously feel a zombie game with no power ups, no "special" zombies, just zombies overrun an area sell like mad. sort of like left 4 dead. remove the special zombies, make the normal infected a bit slower (and remove the horde invasion) and it would play like the zombie movies. but the moment you add in zombies who can spontaneously explode, or zombies who are 100x more powerful and need 18 rockets to kill, it becomes just a game again and not something that can draw you in.

    i'll probably still end up getting it, because the actual island looks amazing and free roam will still be good. but it will lose that added extra bit i think

    I'm looking forward to...

    Hard Reset
    Serious Sam 3: BFE
    Deus Ex: Human Revolution
    Rage

    Serious Sam 3 is what Duke Nukem Forever should have been like and the Blade Runner-esque 'Hard Reset' looks amazing. The best thing about these two games is that they are PC exclusives so they won't be ruined by being ported to/from consoles.

    Isn't anyone boycotting BF3 due to it not being on Steam? Origin sounds horrible.

    Based on playing the Alpha, Origin really is awful! I hope EA backtrack and make BF3 available on Steam, then one day when I have a better rig, I can get it through there. These days, if I can buy a game in Steam rather then in a shop, I will.

    The reason its not on steam is steam is taking an Apple approach, all sales must go through them for their cut and EA want to sell DLC direct as well. Direct2Drive etc will work fine but I will probably use origin myself although the client is dog slow right now.

    Serious Sam 3 looks good, rememeber playing the first one a long time ago

    Not really a war game type person aside from maybe the old Quake 1 & 2, Doom 1,2 and 3, although Waiting for Darksiders 2 on the PS 3

    I'm really out of touch with games at the moment, and with recent events its not been foremost on my mind either
    I only recently discovered L4D and Portal!
    Completed Portal and working my way through Portal 2...
    L4D is more tricky due to the way you can only save progress at "safe houses" so really need a lot of time to play it to make headway - not easy with a 4 year old!
    Might take a look at CoD once I'm back in work...

    Used to be right into Counterstrike, but again life has moved on and since my Son arrived, gaming has really been on the back burner...

    Until now!
