I'm not sure what Binding of Isaac is to me. Steam says I dumped 260 hours into it. I will say it's a great thing to have on one side of the screen if you're, like, watching a Let's Play on YouTube on the other. No official controller support, but it's not all that necessary.

This is the first time I've had any spare income come christmas and my first reaction was "$10? Damn, too rich for my blood" then I remembered spending $700 on most of a new PC 3 months ago. I'm down, how much like Company of Heroes is it?

DoW2:
Quite a lot in certain aspects. Not at all in others. You capture points to get money and electricity. Around electricity points you can build generators to harvest faster. Some races can place turrets, shrines and the eldar build webway gates. All units are produced in your main base, which can be expanded.

Dudes got grenades with different effects, flamethrowers against shit in cover etc. There's a lot to it I'd say. And if you've played CoH, a lot will be familiar. It helps to know some 40k, since imho races and units behave as they do in the stories and tabletops.

DoW1: Haven't played. Apparently unbalanced as fuck in multiplayer. Has fun singleplayer though.

Both of the above have sweet voice acting for every single unit.

I'm still "zombieOnion" on Steam, and in the gausswerks group, if you wanna find me.

As I understand it the first Dawn of War was actually the one balanced to be competitive, DoW2 is really not even remotely balanced in multiplayer. Much like the tabletop warhammer games, so who cares. The fun is pretending to be a space marine and carpeting the earth with orcs.

unpatched soulstorm was apparently a riot though, spectators could cast dark eldar spells or something so the whole game was fucked

If you dudes have a copy of BF2 anywhere, it's time to reinstall Project Reality.

Latest patch has a lot of new awesome shit. Mumble (voice client thing) is now automaticly hooked into the game, no hassle using it anymore. Num pad is used for mumbletalk: 1-9 to reach squadleaders of Alpha-India for example.

Then there's the actual new content: Normandy ( Wermacht vs USA), Vietnam (USA vs VietCong) and Falklands (Argentina vs UK).
Read the manual first before playing, it's complex as shit.

I missed Red Orchestra 2 when it was $5, but it's still on for $10. I got a 3 day guest pass and I'm enjoying it, but for anyone that's owned the game for a while, does it get old? Seems like it might get old faster than some other games.

When I first got RO2 it was so buggy for me I gave up. Post GOTY Edition patches it runs fine.

Only problem is a lack of servers Euroside. There's a handful at best, half of which are usually full of bots (and the bots are awful).

For some reason they never balanced the tanks, so virtually no server plays tank maps. The infantry combat is great and all, but it feels like half the game is forgotten about.
Its a shame it isn't more popular because there is a lot about the game that I like. There's probably organised clan servers etc. but the public servers are a poor showing. You need about 30 players to get the most out of a map so it can be difficult to find a good game.

Sleeping Dogs is up for sale, but it appears to be the "low violence" version (whatever that means). I enjoyed the hell out of it, although it almost strays into LA Noire territory at the end. Super pretty on the PC too.

Damn you just reminded me I never finished sleeping dogs. Got 50% in and got distracted by farcry 3 etc.

Lots of fun, enjoyable fighting mechanics im glad they dont over do the gunplay.

I thought the gun play was kind of shite to be honest, though mostly because the combat felt so damn good. Dunno if it can top Arkham Asylum, but then again Arkham Asylum doesn't have you smashing people's heads in car doors and then stuffing them in the trunk and then driving the car off the pier, but not before slow-mo diving out and shooting the car before it hits the water and produce a glorious explosion.

Despite no longer qualifying for a Young Person's Railcard, I feel that I still fall into the former category.

Ditto, I don't buy a game unless I'm totally excited to play it. The one notable exception recently was hitman absolution. Should've trusted my gut.
