I just noticed on ShopTo they are selling Overlord 2, a game that's scarcely been out for a month, for only £12.79! This is still selling at £39.99 at places like Play.

Even though I told myself I have enough games to play right now I couldn't pass this one up, the original was a hoot if you like British humour- satirical, dark and mischievously funny!

Also this is my 1st HUKD submit

Ordered using PAYPAL. Thanks but I don't trust using my card with them any more.

Ordered - great spot, wasn't on there earlier at this price.

Bargain.

Also had £3 credit from their magazine, so got it for £9.79 and Quidco.

This isn't a bad game either.

how come bud?:oops:

Cracking price.

Doesnt anyone know what the dif is between this one and Raising Hell ? Is hell the first version or something coz ive seen screens of it but it looks very very similar gfx.

keito star - About a month ago I add a brand new card to my shopto account. It was the first and only time I have used the card. A month ago there was a report that shopto leaked people's cards onto the internet. There was no solid proof of this. Until people reported that £30 was taken out for vodaphone top ups. All the people that reported this shoped at shopto.net. My bank called me and said someone used my card to top up £30 credit for vodaphone. So I had to get a new card.

Damn, was just about to do that,
Would have traded one in to CEX, and got the game virtually free.:oops:

hmmm I had a £30 top up taken off my card too....to 02. VERY fishy!!! And I had only used the card to order from SHopto that week.

Great price, I'd totally get this but I'm not going near Shopto with a barge pole after I got £30 taken from my account :x

Haha! I know what you mean. It is good though, that they put a limit on how many people can order, as it wouldn't be fair if someone came along and just bought a ton of them.

Personally, I've just bought one and will take it straight into CEX on my way to work one of the mornings. Yeah it's only £12 profit, but it's £12 I can then put to a game I really want.

Same with the Argos deal, SOCOM with headset and Battlefield: Bad Company. Trading SOCOM and headser meant I got Battlefield for £9. It's there to be taken advantage of in my eyes. Just so long as you don't take the **** and buy twenty of one game or something.

Anyway, heat and rep added. Cheers.

Also ordered through PayPal as I'm a little weary of them.

Raising Hell was the expansion pack for the first game, when the game was ported to PS3 it incorporated the expansion pack. The graphics in Overlord 2 are a step on from the original in that they're a lot more detailed although the framerate isn't as smooth as a result.

Although it's Overlord II it's not really a sequel more a rethink on the original game and many of the animations, audio and other features are identical. However the environment is new and they've tried to add a bit more variety which sees you sailing in boats for example as one part of the game or become a minion in other parts. The minions are pretty much identical to the original although this time around they each have an animail they can use, the brown minions can ride wolves to leap gaps and break up enemy formations. You can bring back minions that have died for a certain cost which means if your horde gets slaughtered in a boss fight or similar you can quickly get them back to strength rather than starting from scratch.

The Overlord himself plays more of a role this time as he's now much stronger and health is more widely available - in the first game the minions could inflict far more damage than the Overlord plus health was few and far between meaning you had to stay out of the fight. This time you can wade straight into battle with the minions following to lead from the front rather than always giving the orders while cowering at the back.

Unfortunately they haven't fix some of the problems with the original, the camera system is still rubbish and the targetting system is weak. Some of the minion AI seems to be worse as well as they seem to get stuck or lost too easily, annoyingly if they get stuck now they're returned to the spawn pit rather than warped back to the pack. This is really frustrating when you're a long way out from a spawn pit as you may have a long way to go to get the minions back. My brown minions were all riding wolves and managed to get stuck going up some steps(!) and were all spawned back to their pit. Losing my fighting force was a total pain in the neck (the other colour of minions can't take as much damage) as I had to backtrack to the start of the section to get the brown minions back then try to find where the game had randomly dumped their wolves.

I bought this the other week for 18 quid from Zavvi and I've been enjoying it, the little minions crack me up with all their muttering and their enthusiasm for destruction. As items are dropped minions are allowed to pick them up if they want and at times their choices are bizarre, you can't actually actually force them to do so - at the moment most of my minions are wearing soldier helmets with one of them proudly wearing the commander's helmet but one of them is wearing a dwarf's cloth hat which he won't give up for a helmet. For 13 quid I think it's cheap enough to be worth a shot.

I had exactly the same thing happen, and the same O2 top ups charged to my card :x

used paypal. hot

Thanx John for the cracking, and time consuming i bet, response. Rep added m8, you earned it ;-)

My nipper is about 80% through Overlord 2 pc version so i was just wondering if its worth getting him Hell for the PS3.

If he's not played either Overlord or Raising Hell and enjoyed Overlord II then I'd highly recommend the original, while there are improvements in the second game the core of it is still pretty much the same but the maps are completely different. I just enjoy having my horde of minions making all their odd little noises while idling and their assortment of hats, weapons and armour then sweeping them forwards to maul the enemy and smash up everything they can find...make you feel sorry for the bad guys at times while you watch them getting swarmed by all the little brown minions while the always eager red minions are setting everything on fire.

Nice find - heat added ! - always fancied the concept of this game, no harm in a little indulgence of comedy wickedness, but was gonna wait for a knock-down price = well here it is

Most people refer to babies/toddlers as nippers - how old's yours? 17? God I hope so....

I work in a fraud department at a bank, and the most common transactions for fraudsters to make are mobile related transactions. Very interesting job, you see something new every day.

As for the deal, what a cracking price, going to find some reviews just now.

TBH i dont find Overlord2 to be in any way 'mega violent' for him .Theres no blood, guts or snot flying about and he actually finds it quite commical. I do vet games for him very well - this was one that was borderline for me but i watch him play it and find it ok. I know of 10-13 year olds that play COD and Killzone quite regularly, that sorta thing shocks me - but Overlord to me personally is not like that whole kill kill kill mega realistic loadsa swearing type game, its funny fantasy.

PS now showing as OOS.

Good game, voted hot. Runs like a choppy slidehsow on consoles tho.

hot. its winging its way to me right now, thanks OP, :thumbsup:

I think fraudsters compromised Shopto's stash of credit card info. Anyhow, I think they've fixed it anyway, so I'm not that concerned.

Received!! Sweet!!

hopefully i'll get mine today

Just rang ShopTo and they recon they are gonna have more stock in tomorrow. Any1 had experience of this or are they just trying to get me to order and not get the game in for ages ? Was gonna do the same from The Hut with Raising Hell but i dont know whether to or not :-/

It says pre-order on their website but no button there to pre-order it? Does that mean it's no longer available?

You have to login i think ?

Yep, I have logged in but no button to order

Hmmm i got the impression i could 'pre-order' when i spoke to them today. Will wait and see what tomorrow brings and if they get in any more stock like they said they would.

I finally figured out how to pre-order - I had to register my bank card with them first......

Now just fingers crossed we get a copy!!
