Not really. More like the Baldur's Gate series.


Any recomendations for similar games such as Diablo?

Don't want to be that guy, but that is a *horrible* deal on Painkiller Overdose... you can snag that one on Steam for $5 straight up if you want it.

$20 + shipping is robbery.

Also, Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory retail uses Starforce DRM, so buyer beware.

I called my lady friend last night and said my buddy had to beat off on my chest, she is kinda pissed at me, but it was the best idea I had all night, and I stand by it.

Dungeon Siege and Divine Divinity are what I can think of off the top of my head... sadly, there aren't really a lot of worthy games in the Diablo vein of gaming.

In case anyone else is looking to clean up on the PlayNC Game Time cards, here's the deal:
1) Works for Aion, won't expire in the foreseeable future. (Aion is released in mid September, which isn't that far off any more)
2) Cost is $18.90. First one brings you to minimum shipping (2.99).
3) Shipping is weird for multiple cards. You can get 1 at $2.99 shipping, and you can throw in a game for $3.29 total ($0.30 more). You can also get 2 cards for $3.29. For 3 cards or 3 total items it jumps to $5.99, and from there it's $1 more for each one.

So basically, with a large enough quantity or if you were going to get games anyway, it's $20 each. I think I'm going to order 2 at the end of the day, but if anyone wants to jump in on this we might be able to split shipping and use Paypal to pay for the codes (could just e-mail the code to avoid a second shipping). Anyone interested? I'd also be interested in seeing who else is planning to play Aion.

Hmm... I'm not sure these prices really qualify as "madness." More like a slight neurological disorder.

I am interested in that Arcanum, I loved Diablo series and titan quest and sacrad, is this game similar to them? It got very solid reviews, any B&M sells this game?


Did you play either Fallout 1 or 2? It's from the same developers, and a bit of a spiritual successor.

I agree that the PlayNC cards are a great deal. Grabbed two. Between those and the one I just used, I'm good on CoH till Christmas.

I just noticed that the PlayNC cards are under "Everyday low prices." Now, I doubt that means that they'll be available for $18.90 indefinitely. It may be more like they just bought a whole bunch of them to resell (or otherwise came into possession of them) this one time, so it's not really part of the 48 hr madness. Food for thought.

Such an appropriately named sale. My keyboard is too hot even rest my hands on.
Saying you're really good at Borderlands is the equivalent to saying you suck at videogames.

That puts a genuine closed parenthesis at the end of my colon. :)

Wow. Arcanum's got to be at least six years old. I hadn't thought of that game for a long time, didn't think they were still selling copies in stores... if you like RPG's, $10 is a good price for it, but boy is it ever going to feel dated now. Hmm, maybe with the widescreen/high res mod it would look pretty okay. I should try that with my own copy.

Do you guys think the Arcanum is the BIG BOX Retail Copy? That's the only reason I would get it. To sit next to my big box Baldur's Gate and Deus Ex.

Warning: Arcanum will seem very dated. The combat was pretty hanky-janky even back in the day. Magic users were over-powered compared to tech characters unless you made a molotov only character. Even then. Fallout 1 & 2 hold up much, much better. But I still put a lot of hours into that game. It's a love/hate thing.

Wow Arcanum. If Planescape Torment pops up in one of these deals my head is gonna explode.

I'd love to know if Arcanum is the big box version too. Can Jason comment?

Last 48 hour madness sale they had Painkiller Black (Original and Battle out of Hell) for i think 4.90 (more for shipping). But the moment i saw how much that was priced for i think i crapped my pants.
