Default $5 on Gamersgate (31/1/10)

Like it says, you can get this for $5 from Gamersgate now. I have heard some less than good things about the game (especially the speech - I lol'ed at the youtube trailer) but this is supposed to be a Fallout type game, so I thought I'd give it a try. Haven't started playing yet - it's still downloading. But I have more than $3 in Blue Coins so I literally paid $2 for this game. Can't be that bad, right?

Well, I played for about 3 hours already, so I've got my money's worth. It's sad that this game has only got one review on Metacritic and that is 20%

Aside from the laughable voice acting, I don't see the problem with this so far. Nice visuals and decent combat mechanics.

I've got a really strange problem that I thought you might be able to help with. I've recently arrived at the northern city and since then Boar starts dancing every time he isn't walking! If this isn't bad enough, he drops any weapon he is holding, which means I can't walk around with anything equipped.

Is this supposed to happen or is it a bug, and have you any idea how to fix it?

Ha! I didn't think of that. I just returned from an expedition and I thought re-entering the city had fixed the problem, but now that I think of it I did rest first. AND I did drink a bottle of vodka. That was so annoying having to pick up his gun all the time. Cheers.

thats where and when i bought my copy.
i was watching it for price drop and the next day... voila.
things can happen.

so far i am quite satisfied with the overall performance.
still getting used to the combat system. i would have appreciated a turn based one though.

graphics are fine, dialouges are ... well... at least u can press escape.
i am just begining to explore the planetary map so i guess theres still much to do.

enjoy!

I am up to the stage where I've explored the northern city (except a western side that you don't seem to be able to get to?) and done a few encounters as well. The game is excellent in terms of the graphics, combat system, inventory etc, but the story itself seems a little lacking. You could use this engine to make an even better game, I reckon.
