Congratulations!

I signed up just to say thank you to the team for creating such a wonderful series of enthralling and exciting games! Also, you'll be pleased to know that the Penumbra Collector's Pack has reached the tippy top spot on the STEAM best seller's list! Great work guys!

Also, I think I speak for all of us when I say a new game with the iconic and lovable pick axe to bust Mr. Satan's head open once more would be greatly appreciated. Tongue:

Cheers,
HellsHigh

RE: Congratulations!

Just to make things clear: That position was gained through the 75% off sale Smile

Next goal will be to get that position with a full priced game Smile

Now, now... Modern Warfare is pretty good. However you are correct that Penumbra blows it and all the Valve crap out of the water.

No. All those games are either good or very good.

Blows Valve out of the water concerning what in particular...??

Guess you have found your genre...

The list is showing the game that is selling the most copies in the exact moment you're watching it. It's not the game that has sold most copies overall.

Oh I know that, I was just saying that I thought it was pretty cool.

@Lee: Mother fu-... have you ever played any of the Half Life games? Valve does NOT make "crap"! Good DAY to you sir.

RE: Congratulations!

Hells - I've played a few of their games (left4dead at a friends house, and halflife2) and didn't enjoy it. They're very, very high quality, I just find them really boring.

Please -REP me.

RE: Congratulations!

You see, Valve likes to make puzzle games. However, their puzzles rely on "place this box here" or "press this button." They have no time limit or danger factor if you don't push the button or move the box. This makes it incredibly easy and suited for the newcomers to gaming to salivate over.

However, I am not new to the gaming community and feel that a game focused on puzzles so much and forgets to make a good story, program good AI, and map realistic controls and actually does not do the puzzles well is crap. Half-Life was better at gameplay but suffered from extreme monotony. Half-Life 2 was extremely easy and linear. The episodes were better in that they had more atmosphere but the puzzles were still boring. Left 4 Dead is their best game so far but is incredibly short and has no variety in enemies.

Anyway Penumbra owns their butts.
