I gotta admit, that after the ordeal that was protecting the base (just past the demo levels, where you have sentry guns), and just barely surviving, I thought maybe the game would save after the very long ensuing cutscene. But I thought wrong. :cry: I can't believe I have to play through all that a...

Topic: Which camera mode do you play in?

Since buying the full version, I've stuck with the free camera. It looks a bit cooler than from top-down. I certainly do better (ie the aliens don't swarm on top of me quite so fast) in the top-down mode, so I can see them wanting that as the default mode. I'm getting my tush kicked in normal mode i...

I forgot to mention, Daemonica, another Meredian 4 published game was right up on top of the shelves, so I don't think it's a matter of game/marketing budget. Maybe it's just luck. :?

These are "MPEG-2" format. If your computer has the latest Window Media Player (version 10), it should work. :? You might check under Tools>Options>Player tab to see if the "download codecs automatically" option is checked. I checked around and I guess technically you need some sort of DVD decoder i...

Some Shadowgrounds *gameplay movies* :)

I've been using this cool file streaming service Putfile.com to share gameplay movies from various games (mainly City of Heroes), but I am enjoying Shadowgrounds so much I decided to add some from that too. :) Here are a couple from my early adventures. I've gotten a little further but I don't want ...

Which camera mode do you play in?

This poll is really just for fun. :) I've played a bit in both free camera mode and default non-free camera mode. I'm just curious which mode players prefer. I guess free-camera mode in theory is "better," but so far I seem to be playing more clumsily in that mode. :oops:

Sure. :) BTW, I learned about the game from that full page ad in the latest PC Gamer (the one with Command & Conquer 3 on the cover). Tried the demo, and once I got used to the viewpoint (which was a refreshing change from all the FPS shooters, many of which cause me motion sickness problems), h...

Hi, I was able to buy Shadowgrounds at a Best Buy in Virginia (USA). They also carried Daemonica by meridian4 too.

Look for Shadowgrounds in the action games section, you might find it lurking on one of the lower shelves, if it's like my store. :)
