    @RedSwirl I’m still one of the four people who hasn’t played Deus Ex 3. What’s the difference between the two editions?

    @beige I’m intrigued. Does the game have a website from which one could purchase it? Is it a Steam game?

    @bluesforbuddha @feenwager Yeah yeah yeah. We’re waiting until its registration goes through with Steam.

    I keep meaning to comment on To The Moon as I’ve been trying out the demo. It’s pretty great. I’ll play the full version eventually, kind of holding out hope for a Mac version.

    @redswir1 Yep, I’m well aware of To The Moon. Haven’t played it yet, but I was one of the first people to report on it after composer Laura Shigihara (of Plants vs. Zombies fame) contacted me to make me aware of it. /brag

    Thought it sounded like a fascinating idea back then, and glad to see it’s getting some recognition from other sites, particularly now I’m not in a position to bang my drum about it to a wide audience. 🙂

    Will get around to checking it out soon — Squaddies interested in narrative-heavy games with intriguing premises, check it out.

    @angryjedi Huh, well now that we’re talking about obscure indie games I had just come over here to talk about To The Moon.

    Sqaud goin’ down on this? I think I am if it get’s through Steam registration.

    The first time I heard about this game they described it as a 16-bit JRPG without the RPG combat. You just walk around and talk to people, engaging in the story, and that’s the whole game. I’m thinking maybe it’s a sort of 16-bit Dear-Esther – a short story in interactive form.

    Eurogamer’s Take:
    “A top-down adventure that frames itself visually as a 1990s Japanese role-playing game, while snipping out all the bits that define that genre. In fact, it omits most of what would define any game.”

    @shingro I watched a lot of Greg Kasavin’s marathon and I’m actually kind of stoked for Skyrim…just not right now. I’m content to have caught the Souls wave of discussion this time around, so I’m going to sit this one out.

    For me, it won’t be a lack of challenge, it’ll be getting bored with the Elder Scrolls combat system, which is the only thing I feel Demon’s/Dark Souls has really ruined for me (a little bit of Mount & Blade too). To be honest, I wasn’t too impressed with it back when Oblivion released either. This new one looks marginally more engaging in that regard.

    No, with Bethesda games my course is very predictable. I’ll most likely dig real deep and lose myself in the world, then a point will come (30-50 hours in) where I get sick of the life of a ronin and jump back on the main quest for some direction, which eventually leads to The End…and then me asking myself, “what is the point of doing this now?”. The more things change, the more they stay the same, eh?

    @beige I saw that email. Curious. Could be cool, sounds kinda Total Recall-ish, but without Johnny Cab and seeing Richter at the party.
