Is your work browser blocked from steam? You can do pretty much everything besides actually playing games without downloading the client.

No I'm not in the group. Don't worry its not a huge loss. I'm sure it will go on sale again eventually.

Also yes my browser is blocking anything associated with games. Although it lets me on some sites oddly enough.

Yeah, my old workplace blocked everything that had "games" mentioned anywhere on the site except for amazon and weirdly enough, xboxlive.com. I'm thinking someone in IT was an XBot.

The Tomb Raider Franchise bundle was amazing at 12.49. Awesome deal, I would have gotten that but I have no desire to play the old school TR's.

I aminly got it for some of the more recent ones (Anniversary and Underworld I think) all the others were just a bonus.

If you want to read some gaming (and tech and science) stuff at work, I know a lot of people are able to get on Ars Technica.

Going with DS2. Just finished the game last week.

What did you think? I liked it quite a bit, especially the second half of the game, but not nearly as much as I liked the first game.

Also, Wired has some good stuff occasionally.

I liked it a lot. Looked and played great like the first game. Stuck with the cutter, pulse rifle, and line gun. I loved some of the zero-g stuff in space, but overall I liked the way you could stick to any surface in zero-g areas in the first game. This seemed more limiting.

I think overall I like both games pretty equally.

If you like Krater, you should check out Dawn of War 2. It's similar in a lot of ways, but is much better in execution. Krater's got a solid foundation, but really messes things up, particularly with their dum level caps. I know it was getting major patches every couple weeks after it first released in June, so maybe things are better now, but I wouldn't know; I haven't played it since then.

I think they have the same parent company as Ars. I saw a lot of stuff in both sites.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 26, 2012 9:04:26 AM PST
Yeah but they gave Skyward Sword a 10, so I asked for that site to be blocked. Trololol!

You know, I tried the Dawn of War 2 demo, and while I thought it was a cool game, it seemed like it was very much still an RTS, which is a genre I'm horrible at. I got my butt handed to me in the demo. I thought Krater was closer to being a real time action RPG like Torchlight?

That Emu Kid says:
Dawn of War 2 and Krater are both squad-based Action-RPG's. In both, you control 3-4 heroes at a time, positioning them around the battlefield and triggering their special abilities while they auto-attack enemies in their range. The main difference (besides settings, obviously) is that Krater is continuous like Torchlight/Diablo, while Dawn of War 2 is mission based. You still find loot, level up your guys, and equip them with different loadouts in preparation for missions with different enemy types.

I'm not sure what the demo for DoW2 is like, but the full game doesn't feature any of the usual RTS stuff like base building or resource gathering. The standalone expansion for DoW2 has some mid-mission resource management stuff that in my opinion is a step backward, but none of that is in the main game or its first expansion.

Correct. Both are owned by Condé Nast.
