Lead and Gold, a game which I have been keeping a careful eye on for a very very long time, this is a 3rd person wild west shooter. Where just like other games now days you can play various classes each with great strengths and weaknesses. What held me back was lack of support for dedicated servers, and today the dedicated server support update has been released I believe in time this will be a GREAT competitor against Team Fortress 2.
With achievements, steam cloud and a great online community this game is a definite buy for all you fans of online games out there, The game is not restricted to the PC but is also available on the Sony PlayStation 3 and the Microsoft XBOX 360. This is a great start for the game because Team Fortress 2 while being on the XBOX makes you pay for the free upgrades on PC for the classes using Microsoft points.
With an amazing price tag of a mere $15 this game has already caught my attention.
