What I'm going to play next.... (nerds only)

I guess this just came out and I didn't even know it was being made before today.


Just watch this.. don't have to watch the whole thing... I sure didn't... I'm playing this.





Either you know exactly why this is cool in the 1st few seconds of watching it or you missed out on an entire genre from the early 90s.

I almost can't believe they made a game like this again.

Can't wait

pass.

in all honesty I'd rage to much. I get bored of games pretty easy and puzzles piss me off. just not my style of game.

I understand its appeal though. The non-forgiving-ness and quick deaths are something I dig in games.

I think if you preorder you might be able to get in. Not sure if they've sent out the last of the beta invites yet or not.

I'd send you a copy but the whole game is linked to battle net. In fact you can't even play the game without an internet connection to log in with (this is gonna be same for the full version) which is really lame if you ask me.

Don't know what the fuck Grimrock is.

The only two games on my for sure to buy are Rainbow Six and Ghost Recon, and probably Halo 4.
