On 26th October 2011, Antisocialfatman (Stephen Bray) died of a tragic heart attack. This is a group created for the fans of Antisocialfatman where they can pay tribute and remember him. Whilst there is a full memorial website planned thanks to Brannnn and theadder, I would like this to be a place available on Steam to remember his passing. I would also appreciate if you are not aware of Antisocialfatman's forum that if you are a fan of his that you sign up there as well:http://asfm.freeforums.org/index.php
Arkham asylum was a brilliant game. varied in gameplay, rich in content, and extremely solid, with the only *technical* issues being the stupid games for windows live service. it was a masterpiece of gaming, and set a new standard for comicbook games in general. Arkham city was hyped and hyped, and yet, despite it being a satisfying package, it was not the gleaming god of the batman ip the first game was.
In fact, arkham city seems to have become the downfall of rocksteady.
First, the dreaded games for windows live returns, which i found a way around by using a local profile, but prevented me for using the DLC and, had me play half of the game, only for my save to be lost. Its story is short and lacking, with many villans making only a cameo appearance, and paying 100 dollars (for i live in AUS) for a game that makes me wish i could play the original again is a massive disapointment. i had some fun, but the game has numerous problems, and seems to lust for my money, not my enjoyment.
its been a while since i have played such a brilliant puzzle game such as Braid. Braid is a two-diamensional, puzzle, platformer that is probably the most satisfying puzzle game i have ever played. you play as tim. a chap whose lady has become a damsel in distress and needs saving. tim has the power ot rewind time much like the protsgonist in the prince of persia series. right off the bat, this game is art come to life. the background and foregrounds of the levels are stunning and the style is unique. the puzzles begin mildly simple, but buil dup to brain shatteringly challinging. i have to admit that i mangaed to finish the game without using a walthroug which is amazing in itself. new gameplay elements are introduced gradually that amkes the game more challenging and interesting. the pacing and excelent in this game and even more amazing is that this masterpiece is an indie game. while the ending was unsatisfying, the game was excelent. braid is a masterpiece of puzzle gaming.
