So the Summer Sale has started and I’ve already blown a fistful of dollars. I finally picked up Portal 2 and Trine 2 is in my possession as well. Picked up those gems for about $8. With daily and flash deals, I’ll be checking Steam multiple times a day to see what new deals there are. God, I love Steam sales!
At any rate, this isn’t an ad for Steam, this is a new release feature. So let’s get on with what few new releases there have been this week.
Foreign Legion: Multi Massacre
This Lego-looking third-person shooter is either based on the Minifigs or trying hard to be a very politically correct (yet gory) indie arena shooter.
Foreign Legion: Multi Massacre, the far too long awaited follow up to Buckets of Blood. The game is a fun for all (even mac users) multiplayer cartoon-style third-person shooter. With your friends (if you have some) you take the role of a Legionnaire to shred a huge army of non-descriptive cannon fodder to lots and lots of pieces. This kill count is added to the global kill count,that unlocks new content for all players, including mac users.
If you missed the last free to play shooter on Steam, Nexon has a new release that does the same thing. Great looking visuals and fast-paced action mark this competitive FPS.
Combat Arms offers a massive array of weapons to take down your foes with, from sniper rifles to SMGs to machetes, and a host of different modes like Team Deathmatch, Search and Destroy, cooperative Fireteam missions, and more. Customize your soldier, rank up for new gear and perks, and aim for special achievements in battle!
Indie Bundle I
If you’re looking for a few great games to fill out your indie collection, this is your game pack. Anomaly, Cave Story+, EDGE, Lone Survivor, and The Baconing are all featured here, so there’s a great mix of new and old games. I would personally recommend checking out Cave Story, as it is free if you get the original version (instead of the + version) from teh interwebs.
Not so much a game as it is a.. Well.. A filmmaking tool for the Source engine. It’s the actual tool that have been used by valve to create the infamous Team Fortress Meet the Class videos.. And it’s free as a public Beta! So get those Levelsave-themed movies up on youtube and submitted to our staff for cookies and kudos!
The Source Filmmaker (SFM) is the movie-making tool built and used by us here at Valve to make movies inside the Source game engine. Because the SFM uses the same assets as the game, anything that exists in the game can be used in the movie, and vice versa. By utilizing the hardware rendering power of a modern gaming PC, the SFM allows storytellers to work in a what-you-see-is-what-you-get environment so they can iterate in the context of what it will feel like for the final audience.
That’s it for The Steamfeed this week. Keep on task and don’t get too sucked into their sale. >_<
