  1. Indirect Sniper Rifles are your friend in the beginning. Nothing like long range ricochet for crowd control.=)
  2. Or my brain could just explode, you never know. Maybe it can't process such input anymore. ;P
  3. Has anyone been over there recently? It almost feels like a bad anti double fine propaganda. What are people thinking they're gonna achieve, when they badmouth the developer of a game they wish to be fixed? I'm not in forums very often, so I don't know if this is something that is generally encountered, or special degree of animosity. It seems like for every decent post, that is laying down a differentiated point of view, there are half a dozen people there to just bash it down. Most random players I meet in Iron Brigade are decent, funny and kind folks. In the years playing I met barely no exception. Only a few of them are to be met in the forums, even less with the overall tone there. This is kind of sad, as there's vocal minority painting a picture that's not representative of the fine Trench pilots, still holding the line against the mono vision hordes. Sorry for my rambling, I guess I had to get this off my chest.
  4. I never played Iron Brigade with a controller on my PC. Well, since my old 90s sidewinder rests in peace I got none anymore. I'm thinking about getting one again. Wonder what the experience in IB will be.
  5. Seeing that achievements, though not active for the time being, have been added gives me hope. Even if it may still be a long way, it was a little sign of reassurance. I'm still dropping by every now and then, looking to find some randoms for a game, or look into the steams forums, alas, that's one hostile place there. But there are also many voices, pledging to return, once gfwl may be get rid of. I'm also getting regular inquiries about Iron Brigade from friends, as they see I'm still playing it. I'd say there more people standing behind Iron Brigade than the negative voice try to make it appear. The right reverting back would be magnificent!
  6. Ran into a random the other day, playing Iron Brigade for the first time. Doesn't get boring. Explaining some basic controls, or sitting in the back, support sniping or calling down turrets as engineer. It was fun doing the campaign again.
  7. I tried it. Out of boredom and finding no coop partner at the time. Damn that was hectic. Add some mistakes to it. I won't say how far I only got. :')
  8. I wish you lot a good year to come, success health and always the pinch of luck needed in the right situation. When everything fails, at least I wish you luck, may you ever be one corner ahead of the devil chasing you. ;D And may the new year bring more hunting of tubes!
  9. I hope everything's going well behind the red tape for you guys at Double Fine. Just drop a \m/ if you're still alive and kicking. Or if you've got some humour reserves left, update the FAQ in the steam forums. A blackguard would say the place needs some cleansing by the holy flame of reflecting irony. 8) Not me, I'm not a blackguard! =)
  10. I'm still there, on the Iron Brigade forums, it's a cold and lonesome place. :'(
  11. This is a beautiful and useful list, thank you very much! :-)
  12. If it leads back to more Trenches, I'll take it! ;p
  13. Best case (utopian) scenario: Double Fine gets the intellectual property rights to Iron Brigade. Following this... The martian bear is defeated, but we still got some planets left.
  14. One day, we'll wake up and there it will be, Iron Brigade, free from GFWL. I refuse to cease waiting for this day.
  15. I honestly don't recognize your name =D Having met about 14 to 15 months ago, and under my cursed, slightly different gfwl handle 'LetItHackTheMec' might not be helping either in remembering. ;P
  16. There are issues, but they haven't stopped me and others to clock dozens, even hundreds of hours in single and multiplayer.
  17. Well, I learned something new, I've been using these Massive Magnet Launchers for fun, when aiding in missions, but I never thought of using them for 'Rocket Jumps'. I think I know what I'll be doing later on. Cheers!
  18. In the last weeks there was quiet some activity on Iron Brigade on PC. Some random people met on the steam forums, I even picked someone up and ran a full 100 waves of survival despite the stutter lag. Good times. We've supported new players learning the ropes, using hilariously bad/experimental loadouts and even managed to miss gold. All in the name ye olde plain good fun! Sanctum 2 was recently acquired through a bundle by me and I gotta say I quiet enjoy it. It satisfies some of my IB urges and it feels more substantial to me than Orcs must die. But yes, I think you won't go wrong with IB, if you like Sanctum 2. IB is the moustache of (action)tower defense games! I mean this in the most positive way. It is also my first and only (online) gfwl game, which is the reason you'll find me under the handle of 'LetItHackTheMec' there. I thought I would never use this service, except for offline use. Serves me right. But to the point, Iron Brigade was just too great and hilarious, when I was introduced to it at a friend's, that I wanted to enjoy with others. If you get the chance to try it out, do it! Iron Brigade is a beautiful experience, in gameplay and story. Iron Brigade deserves a future. I demand a future. You here me, universe? YOU HEAR ME!?
