Games Request Thread

Postby Beani on Sat Sep 13, 2008 4:41 pm

Time for a shiny new request list for all those people out there who know of an awesome game that EGG simply must have. So that we consider games properly we request that you fill out the form below and be sure to push why you believe this game would be good for the club. Single player games will be harder to push but please feel free to suggest them if they are simply that awesome (like Assassin's Creed and Katamari for example)

Title:
RRP:
Platform(s):
If multiple platforms, which one is best and why:
Why this would be a great addition for the club:

Note: The club currently owns and buys games for PS3, PS2, Wii, Xbox360 and PC. Older generations will only be considered if we can guarantee they will play on the current consoles we own and the game is relatively easy to find. We do not currently buy handheld titles.

If you wish to add to or discuss another person's suggestion please quote their original post. Do this even if you are responding to someone else's discussion about a particular game, make's it easy for us to follow what's happening and when new requests pop up.

out of curiousity, are we allowed to argue why a game SHOULDNT be bought (i.e. one that someone else suggested), or are we only to stick to the form style shown and just have only game requests?

Feel free to discuss suggested games just please quote the original form first so that we can easily see what's being referred to as well as which posts are discussion.

And people please be bothered to at least find out a price, it's not hard to do :p (more justification wouldn't go astray either...)

tl;dr it does its research or it gets the hose.
"It's a boot," says Cheryl, "in space."
The robot lions charge together. They form a giant robot. This is the glorious stock footage that is Voltron.
Vladimir rubs at his chin. There is the sparkling in his mind again. "We should add lasers."
"Heat-seeking lasers!"
"They laughed at us in engineering class," says Vladimir. "But now the engineering department is in ruins - we may build as we see fit."
Thunder crashes all around them.

I dont know how we have to get it, given the nature of steam/egg computers etc.

Standalone disk is apparently 50 bux, although I believe the downloadable version is cheaper. Can't check this atm as I dont have steam on this computer.

right film, wrong guy
Tetris (as an allegory to the Soviet people)- everyone is an unindividualistic block that must be made to fit together in Soviet conformity, and sometimes whole lines of people are made to disappear without any explanation
