    Re: PROMOTIONS: Events and Promotional Offers

    I think you have to be over 18 for several reasons: 1) I think you need a credit card, 2) they can only enter contracts with adults, not minors (but doubt if they care much about this) and 3) because there are mature games on the site (seriously i doubt if they care about this either).

    I wouldn't sweat it too much though as I think they're going to start charging fairly soon with a subscription fee, which brings me to the flaw of the service... you pay for a subscription and then buy your games.... If you stop the subscription you've lost access to the games you've purchased. How does that make sense?


    _________________________________________________
    Okay, now some comments on this promotion (and sorry it isn't available everywhere):

    First, there are a couple of games worth checking out as I was surprise by how well they were developed. Both of these are first person shooters (most of the time).

    The best one in my mind was FEAR 2. A mix of a traditional shooter and a horror. You fight against another army who seems to be defending the place and trying to cover up some experiments while you seek out to destroy Alma, a ghostly figure. The story is a bit convoluted but if you want to know what a chill down the spine feels like then this will give it to you.


    FEAR 2: Project Origin

    ESRB: M - Mature 17+
    Genres: Shooter
    Modes: Single Player, Multiplayer (yes it has multiplayer, not spectacular but it was workable).
    Release Date: Jun. 17, 2010 (just a few months old)

    Free Trial: YES for the next week or so (unlimited play while the offer lasts).
    3 Day PlayPass:
    5 Day PlayPass:
    Full PlayPass:
    $5.99
    $8.99
    $19.99


    And,
    Front Lines: Fuel of War
    Again, very surprised by the quality of this game. Rich textures and environments and a good story line. Odd vehicle control switches to 3rd person and is difficult to steer, and a couple other oddities, but overall worth it to try out.




    Other demos worth a try (about 30 minutes of play):


    ESRB: M - Mature 17+
    Genres: Action
    Modes: Single Player
    Release Date: Jan. 4, 2011 (this is a brand new title and has a rich environment and story. I like that they actually have a full range of civilians living a 'regular' life as it brings a cool level of reality to gaming.)
