huh, what is that game? Is there a colon missing?
Steel Storm: Burning Retribution
or
Steel Storm Burning: Retribution
or maybe a new one:
Steel Storm: Burning: Retribution
:rolleyes:
you can type any of those in on google and it'll bring you to the same page. Me thinks you're just being a douche.

It came off as you trying to give me shit for not having the colon in there. At least that is how I perceived it.

Sorry.
I meant did the developer of the game leave out the colon. I have no idea what the game is, only that it's title is hilariously generic

Your deal threads are amazing! Can't live without them since the work firewall block Steam, but not AT.
So, apologies:oops:

No worries, simple misunderstanding :)

The actual title of the game is Steel Storm: Burning Retribution

I usually just ignore colon's because I am lazy and people will know what the title is still :D

Ooh! I like this game. Sort of a "poor man's Katamari" if you will, but still really enjoyable IMO.

I have a 25% off paradox coupon, anyone know if that works on the sale price?
Well, you can try it, no? ;) Just add the game to your cart, go to checkout, and it will let you know if you can use a coupon before actually buying.

(Hint: Yes, coupons do stack)

yeah should probably have mentioned; at work where "games" are blocked.. So can't try it, that's why I asked. But realized it would save me $1.5 or something, so who cares:D

After running England into economic collapse in EU3 I now feel like I should do the same in the 1800s. For $7 why not!

I tried it and it was a really boring generic shooter. What's so "awesome" about it besides you have jetpacks and robotic looking armor?

Section 8 was one of the games I waffled on during the SteamSale; I need to stop waffling on $3 games.

It's a perfect mixture of Tribes and Battlefield? Heavy mechs and tanks? Killzone-inspired randomly generated missions in multiplayer? Huge maps? Extremely tight and well-designed gameplay? The fact that it's ridiculously cheap?

I should also maybe take back what I said earlier. Totalbiscuit is a huge fan of Section 8: Prejudice, and since he's realized that it's such a criminally-ignored game, he actually started his own dedicated server and made a slew of videos related to the game. There's actually a good chance you'll find some people playing online now. Also, Section 8 actually uses very good AI-bots to fill up empty slots so the servers don't feel so empty.

Watch: Section 8: Prejudice - This is why we can't have nice things, as well as these two other gameplay videos.
