Save yourself the money and pass on Brink. The other two should be more than worth purchasing though.

You're too quick lol, thanks. Pretty good deal on Alice. Competes with Kmart. I'll probably grab it if they actually drop it to $35

Actually kmart.com has the better deal. $34.99 + $1 ship + tax was just under $39 for me.

Most good Kmart deals tend to sell out very fast online though; hopefully if they match they do so soon

I'd say that Brink is worth it (so far). Got it for PS3 during the TRU 2 for $50 glitch a week ago. It's pretty much Killzone 2 + Team Fortress 2 with parkour. The shooting feels nice, looks nice and the only area that isn't nice about the game is the lobby system (there isn't one). The developers botched a simple feature for MP - you don't know if you're playing with real players or not some times. That's my only gripe with the game so far. Also, there's a huge patch coming out in a couple of weeks plus free DLC (new maps, new weapons).

Apparently so, yeah. It was supposed to be buy 2 games and get a $50 GC. It was supposed to last until yesterday, but TRU stores started to take the deal off their systems on Tuesday (some people still got in on the deal because of a manager override - stores didn't catch on yet).

The free Brink DLC coming out in early July is going to coincide with a patch that aims to fix many of the issues people have had with the game, in particular the awful AI. Though without a review of the DLC and fixes being out yet, you'd be taking a chance on whether the fix actually fixes it properly. Personally, I LOVED Brink, except for the Ai and lag issues...if they can manage to fix those, this would be a seriously fantastic game.

Alice: Madness Returns is alright...the art direction is wonderful, and the level design at times feels like a nice throwback to Super Mario 64 style gameplay, but it can also get kind of repetitive.

Yikes Alice for $30 on PC? Oh man I wonder if steam will go that low (assuming the summer sale starts later this week and Alice is actually on sale) ><.

Ooo very tempted at The Witcher 2 at that price.

I'm kinda scared how the game will run though as I'm skirting the minimum requirements with my system.

Win7 64 bit, 4GB DDR2, e8400 @ 3.6 Ghz and 8800GT 512MB.

And running the game at my LCD's native 1920x1080.

I wouldn't want to run at 1080 with your setup, most likely. You should be ok at a lesser resolution or ok at 1080 with a slightly beefier computer but where you are exactly I just don't know. That is a popular ass card though, or atleast it was and is still in a lot of computers, so you should be able to find some other people with similar systems.

It's worth noting for the PC Alice Madness that it doesn't include the original Alice in the boxed version like the console versions do.

The developers botched a simple feature for MP - you don't know if you're playing with real players or not some times.


The PC version of Brink doesn't have this issue since you can see that bots don't have pings to the server.

The free Brink DLC coming out in early July is going to coincide with a patch that aims to fix many of the issues people have had with the game, in particular the awful AI. Though without a review of the DLC and fixes being out yet, you'd be taking a chance on whether the fix actually fixes it properly.


The bug and balancing patch has been put out on the PC version already and it does a good job of balancing the weapons out. Bots still don't seem too smart, but they seem just like they are in most fps' where they make up for it with great aim now.

This is project 10 dollar. As long as the code is unused, which it never will be in a new copy, you'll always get american mcgee's alice with the console games.

Are you referring to Brink? If so then yes, Brink activates on Steam since it is a Steamworks title. Any PC version of Brink you buy anywhere will require you to use Steam.

Alice and Witcher 2 are a no, no. Although I'm sure you can take the Alice key and pop it into EADM (Origin) and not have to bother with the Amazon Game & Software Downloader.
