Now this one looks interesting. Is that thingy who did the voice of the book in Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy?

Nah but I can see/hear why though. It's Kevan Brighting who did the narration to the Stanley Parable, Black mesa scientist and the narrator to Dungeons 2 + 3 :)

Not read the review yet but the price is a little rich for my blood.

If they convert it will be just over £20 which isn't too bad but aye £30 would be meaning I will wait on a sale too.

It's the same guy who voiced the Stanley Parable, isn't it?

Acht, not for me. Getting bored of the gameplay loop already and the writing is really tiresome.
I used to be eVoL but I got better.
I like everything now.

On about the third time when I just have to 'collect 3 things' to progress. Getting tired. Unlocked most things. Those things with shields are a pain in the arse. Secs?

Secs yup, I use either explosives or even the rift gun on them and then place the fuckers in front of boom canons. Died after 140 days and lost all my ammo inventory for the various guns so now having to play a bit sneakier.
I don't like the patients though, groups of them can whittle your health down quickly if you got no explosive weapons on you.

Only gun I don't like is the Rivet gun, the spike works out better overall in damage over time and being silent.

The 'nuclear fallout' gun (can't remember the name but does yellow damage) deals with patients nicely. It hits one with the cloud and then the damage ticks over and kills all of them. It's pretty much the only time I use that gun so have to check who's on board before boarding.
