dying to shoot something

Postby DogRobber » Thu Apr 21, 2011 12:37 pm

I, and by I I mean we, need a new shooter for Friday Nights.

4 man co-op would be nice, and we've been able to make that work quite a bit, but a larger team would be better.

Any thoughts?

I think I'm going to try the ArmA II demo on Steam for a while.
A good modern tactical sounds like alot of fun, and from what I'm reading this is the best one out there.
I am, however, well open to other games as well.

I believe me and Spencer tried a version of that awhile back, and I think it was over shadowed by the triple "A" shooters that were out, like Battlefield 2 Bad Company, Modern Warfare 2.

I remember thinking the tutorial was pretty good, but the actual online game-play was not.

I would be interested to hear if they have fixed some of those issues.

Did you play Homefront?

While we are having a slow day at work, how about some of these options:
(I will be buying Brink next month.)

Sanctum - http://store.steampowered.com/app/91600/
BulletStorm - http://www.direct2drive.com/10279/produ ... m-Download (might be too expensive)


I do want to mention Magika once again. I mentioned League of Legends to you guys two months before you decided to try it, and then played the hell out of it. I think this game will be similar.

Sanctum is 2 person co-op...
I've been thinking about Bulletstorm for a while. The console demo was a blast. I'd buy it, but I suspect that I'm in the majority.
People are playing League of Legends because it's a good, free, game. Had it cost 20 bucks, it probably wouldn't have caught on. I know this because I've sent 20 bucks on in game items and I've caught alot of shit for it.

True enough.

As luck would have it, ArmA 2 is the Steam sale item today for 8 bucks.

I'm going to get it just because I enjoyed the demo enough to want to at least solo the campaign. Would be fun to have some squadmates for it.

Trying to revive this post.

Technically the tank shooter world of tanks has been fun. But what's it going to be this summer?

Duke?

That's probably going to eliminate a few people just based on system requirements.

Battelfield 3 or MW 3, or Rage.

I am enjoying the tank warfare though. I hear they have another game coming out too, a WWII plane game with the same type of gameplay and style. I feel a Corsair squadron coming on.
