My Culdcept Saga post:

Quote
For Culdcept Saga Contest

Forum Name: Fink

I would have my CompTIA A+ text book turn into a Culdcept Saga monster.

This 800 page textbook would be this huge monster with sharp teeth, yellow eyes, and a T-Rex roar.

It would confuse enemy's by yelling tecno mumbo-jumbo, and if you made it mad, it would just squash you.

Hope no one picked that, I didn't read any of other posts.
Thanks Steve, hope I win :)

Maybe I should of selected my iPod Touch.

It would entice you to touch it's bight screen, and when you did you would get sucked in and trapped as a new icon.
And the only way out is for someone to pay $20 to unlock you  ;)

I'm tempted to enter because the odds are very good that I could win but I'd feel bad selling a prize I won... you know, because I don't have a 360.

That's what I'm planning to do. Look at it this way. Steve is still giving you something, and someone else gets culdcept at a low price!
No way dude, you're trolling me.

Oh come on, don't sell it.
Give it to someone who wants it, and has a 360.

Yes, I fit both of those, but I'm asking for you to give it to me. It's just kind of unfair to win if you don't want it.

That's why I'm not entering. :D

But if I did win I'd give it to you.

lol, thanks.

Anyway, I played the demo, and unlike what Steve said, I won my first game  :)

I think it would do better as a arcade game though  :-\

I wonder is it a world wide release for the game or will people in PAL territories have to wait 6 months to get a prize?

For the person who was looking for wing commander type games: May I suggest taking a look at Project Sylpheed for the 360.  It definitely skews heavily toward an anime style (which I like) but it has some pretty good if chaotic space battles.  Also, it should be dirt cheap now.

I have a friend who told me he'd want it - But I'm worried, is the 360 region locked? I so, I might ask my cousins in the US.

Yeah I'm pretty sure NTSC games don't work on PAL consoles for 360 (short of some kind of modding).

I hope Steve plans some alternate prize for his millions of fans over in Europe and here down under.

I think it was a great show! 

Steve always has great inteviews and fantastic news but I think he does ramble a little bit. 

Does he write out what he plans on saying as I know I can ramble and I find if I right out what I want to say I can cut it down tremendiously!

I still can't beleive he did't like Transforms as that movie Rocked!



Thank you, as you have just been Lazered

Anyone else think that Nobu sidestepped Steve's complaints about game balance? Loved the show, hope you have time in the future to do some more game reviews or retro reviews or even just to drop some names of games that you like or hear about that are interesting... a lot of great games like Darwinia, Dreamfall, the Darkness, Drake's Fortune, and other games that don't begin with D I wouldn't have picked up / even heard of if it weren't for your awenessifying.
