I gave the Machinarium demo a spin this weekend. It took all of five minutes to capture me. The world and presentation just clicked. Now I’ll have to see if it provides an enjoyable experience in addition to looking and feeling cool.
I’ve been playing a lot of Dawn of War 2: Last Stand lately, and I’d say it’s easily the best DLC I’ve tried. It provides a new experience and expands the game. There’s a lot of longevity in it for the right audience, and it’s free. Last Stand feels a lot like a concept prototype that was fleshed out for general consumption.
