HOORAY!

Although all of those looked good. E.Y.E looked the second best, I'm thinking about preordering Frozen Synapse, and I've already planned on buying Naturual Selection 2.
The only game that didn't look great was Encore, looked majorly unfinished and odd.

This is full of awesome. Well done Wolfire, the fact you beat all those games without actually having any substantial gameplay developed makes me wonder how much you're going to be kicking everyone else's ass once you actually have gameplay included. :lol:

However, E.Y.E. looks like it has the potential to be a modern-day Deus Ex. I may have to check it out. :shock:

Congratulations to all, though I have to admit, Infinity and Frozen Synapse are looking great.

Keep in mind they're making it from scratch ... which is one hell of an impressive feat considering the detail they already can display in map demos ... That's probably what set them out so much to the guys over at Moddb ...

Also their impressively active PR definitely makes them noticeable ...

If i could redo anything while making mods ... it would of been taking the time to publicize ... It's insane how much articles vs no articles will help you ...
