    What's up with Flatout 3? A 23 on Metacritic?

    Yeah, it is bad and the patches some how have made it worse since they seem to be put out untested and make the game not even playable.

    I suggest if you want a Flaout, just get Ultimate Carnage, that is a good fun game.

    If you're going to pick up one of these, get Flatout: Ultimate Carnage. It's the last good Flatout game ever made - basically an HD remake of Flatout 2 - and it's ridiculously, almost criminally fun to play. The car deformation and destruction physics are still the best out of any other game I've played.

    Flatout 3 sucks because it wasn't made by the original Flatout developers. It's shovelware. Don't buy it.

    If some AT members wanna pick up Flatout: UC so we can have another demolition derby night, that would be awesome. I would LOVE some people to play with.

    I think the game has to be easier in co-op as well. I've always played by myself, and you only get two lives. :( In co-op, you can resurrect the other player.

    I got Binary Domain from the Amazon sale last month for $9.99, and I still haven't gotten around to it. I really need to play it because I keep hearing good things about it.

    FWIU, they patched all the issues that plagued it at launch so the keyboard + mouse controls work properly now.

    The game also features a voice command system that uses voice recognition from your microphone. It's definitely pretty wonky (from the little that I played), but after tweaking my mic settings I managed to make it work pretty well. It's neat to be able to say stuff out loud and have your squad mates respond to you.

    i had ALL the issues trying to communicate with my partners through mic...i ended up answering "yes" "no" most of the time... like....

    companion: "how are you man?"
    me: "yes"
    companion: "cool!" (increased affinity)

    i thought it could be my ugly english pronunciation...but yesterday i watched a stream of a guy playing it and he had the same issues as me and he talked english quite better than me haha

    Yeah, if I speak in anything other than a crystal-clear news-broadcaster voice, it fouls up. Same thing if I make any noises with my mouse or keyboard that aren't intended to be commands.

    Fortunately you can skip the voice thing altogether and just use button commands. :)

    Kaotik, if you could put one final post at the end of each of these threads announcing that you are switching to a new thread, it would be really helpful. I usually just view my subscribed threads so I don't realize when this thread has cycled into a new one.

    Thanks for maintaining these!

    how do the guns in binary domain work out? Is the story/environment good?

    This looks like a non-retarded mass effect.

    This daily is apparently because of another game from the same studio, 'Iron Brigade', that went on steam today, I hadn't heard of it. It's 20% off for $11.99.
