  • What a coincidence. I rarely try demos, but I just finished the XCOM demo before seeing this article. I wasn't impressed though, although it seems to be getting praise. Maybe if it was $20 or $30 instead of $60.

  • That Kung Fu game looks interesting. Apart from that only minecraft interests me in that list. (Minecraft has some sick stuff, like the star trek ship scale 1/1 or earth project :D.

    The project where the ship looks like blocks, can't move or do anything interesting but takes hours to make? The wonders of unemployment...

  • I love Orcs Must Die 2! The game engine is near-perfect, the graphic design is excellent, the play balance is superb (there are no killer tricks) and it's funny and fun to play. It takes a long time to get bored with this one. The one drawback of this sequel, for single-player, is that all the levels are set up for coop (two-player) action. So there are always two goals to defend, which I simply don't care for. Others may find it adds to the challenge.

  • the only thing that even looks slightly good, and i'm already being generous, is Sniper Elite. If anyone is really into a sort of sandbox, Soft Bodied (cars are destroyed in all ways possible) car simulator, you need to check out BeamNG Drive. they have a free tech demo and the Paid Alpha is only $5. Also another good demo i didn't see in here is Kerbal Space Program. This game is like nasa's Do-It-Yourself program where you build rockets and control them and ultimately fail at everything possible. They have a free demo on their website (https://kerbalspaceprogram.com/demo.php) and the paid version is like $10-$15 or something like that. Anyway, these are two great games that are absolutely incredible and more people should play them.
