Thanks for the warning! Not that I would have checked this out anyhow but now I most assuredly won't... unless I'm in a really strange state of mind and can't think of a better use for $10.

And this is an historic event... the first review with not a single reason to buy the title!

That sounds so bad that I almost kind of have to see it for myself. Almost. If it goes at 90% off in the Steam winter sale I might pick it up for a dollar.

A lot can be done with a dollar instead.... for instance: your plane crashes and you are stuck in the Alps. You can burn it for three more minutes of horrible, frozen life before dying of exposure.

@ Merlance - Nice to see you. :)

@ Choyrt - Good advice. Unless you're Canadian. Our dollars are coins so we use them to scrape ice off cars and such. ;)

I actually enjoyed the Alien Shooter games. Zombie Shooter 2 looks like a carbon copy, so it's probably just a "re-skinned" version of those (I'll have to check the developer/publisher name). Simple, mindless fun in the vein of Asteroids and Galaxians. Nothing more, nothing less. Mow down endless hordes of goons and baddies.

Alien Shooter 2 Reloaded was as good as that series could ever get.

How long would it take for a dollar to burn? I cant imagine one would last three minutes. And if I were in the alps, why would I have a dollar, wouldnt I have most likely exchanged for a local currency, a Euro perhaps? How long would a 1 euro bill last? With exchange rates, would it be one euro? I dont know how europeans do change, but how long would 75 cents last in euro form?

I thought the minimum socially acceptable denomination for that was $20 dollar bill.

There are no 1€ bills. The smallest one would be 5€. Have fun trying to burn metal in the Alps. :haha:

Not that you would need it. If you survive that plane crash you'd most likely be picked up by a helicopter before you die of exposure at any rate. Plane crashes don't really happen withot anyone noticing...

Zimbabwean currency is quite cheap these days. Can probably keep warm for days for a few US$.
