Soooo, I had fun with the original FEAR a couple years ago, but never got around to the expansions. FEAR 2 looked kind of weak, so I haven't gotten around to playing that either. But now, Steam has a sweet deal for FEAR + Extraction Point + Perseus Mandate for $10. If you haven't played FEAR yet, but love horror, now's a good time to pick it up for cheap.

Everyone loves zombies. This has been scientifically proven many times.

So, I figure it is my duty to report to yall when I've found a bomb-ass zombie game. Apologies if this is "old news" by now, but I'd never heard of this game prior and it's just so addictive.

I guess if I had to compare Infectonator to another game, it's a bit like Peggle. You click somewhere on the overhead view of a town/city, and that is where the zombie virus is launched. At first, you can't do anything after the click, just watch the mayhem and hope you take out enough of townspeople, but eventually you can unlock additional clicks, wider click spread range, increased zombie stats, and OMG SPECIAL ZOMBIES that you can place at any time during a town attack.

I don't want to spoil much about strategies and the special zombies, so I'm just going to hope the concept of annihilating with world by managing zombie infections will draw you to try it. And if this doesn't sound appealing to you, you have no soul, frankly.

Here are 2 different links to the game (online only I believe):

So I won that Armored Core 3 contest last week, but I don't have a PSP. So I'm gonna give my download code to someone else on dtoid. I'm feeling nostalgic right now, so to win it, just list your 5 favorite PS2 games, and a sentence or two on why you feel that game deserves to be in that list. The winner will be determined by both their choice of games and their reasons given. Deadline is Thursday 11:59 PM


So, last night I finished Persona 3. I booted up the epilogue expansion today, "The Answer", and after playing for an hour and a half: GOD DAMMIT!

So Aigis is the main character now, and it's so hard to "first strike" the enemies in dungeons. She has a ranged shot to engage enemies, but it's pretty hard to aim accurately, and if you miss you're pretty much fucked. I don't know about you guys, but I used a 1H sword with the protaganist in the main game, and had no trouble engaging enemies first. Now, I'm getting ambushed about 20% of the time. Nothing like getting hit first by a purple monster, and them casting Mabufula, Zionga (on me + my weakness), and then a second Mabufula to finish me off before I can enter a command. I know normally those spells suck, but keep in mind you start at level 25 when you start the game, so they actually hurt at this point.

It also doesn't help that I, the main character, am the weakest member of the party. My sister android can deal 190+ damage, yet I can't crack 90 :( And the other party members can at least attack multiple enemies. And Orpheus, I hate you. 2 weaknesses, and no resistance. Yet I have to use you sometimes because you possess the only elemental magic in the early game *shakes fist*

So yeah, /rant mode. It's just pretty frustrating to going from a lvl 80 persona master that can beat the shit out of the Apocalypse Incarnate, to a lvl 25 cyborg that still uses friggin' Agi as the only offensive magic. *sigh* Off to return and try again, like an abused woman...


I'm level 19 right now in the game, and so far the creepiest part of the game for me has to be vault 108. This is the one with nothing but clones of a guy apparently named Gary, and all they can say is "Gary" like they're playing hide and seek, and laugh in an unnerving manner. What makes it even weirder I think is how easy they are to kill. It's like they don't give a shit, they just run around all the time laughing and calling to each other while I slaughter all of them in one hit... *shivers*

Hi guys, just pointing out that this weekend the first two Oddworld games: Oddysee and Exodus are on sale on Steam for $3.75 for the package. These games were a blast to play on the PSX, and if you haven't played them yet, I'd best describe them as a platformer/puzzle game with a great sense of humor. Buy it naow!
