So this is first-person Lunar Lander for Atari? It looks pretty interesting, but bundles have me on the fence about purchasing any indie game now...

Similar principle but more complex, naturally. Did the first mission in 3 attempts, very cool. My successful landing on the third attempt:

re: Installing Bioshock 2 DLC Minerva's Den from GFWL on the Steam version of B2

yeah, cause the steam version still uses gfwl.



And just to further confirm this, I have Minerva's Den on my Steam copy of Bioshock 2 that I got from GFWL a while back when it went on $5 sale. It installed without issue and runs fine.

That's the kind of stuff that gives me nightmares as a CAG Steam collector. Wait for the deal... wait for the deal... wait for the deal... **poof** the game is gone from Steam. :shock:



I hear you. I'm not so much a Wolfenstein fan, but I keep kicking myself for not buying Sacred 2. :cry:

but I keep kicking myself for not buying Sacred 2. :cry:

OMFG, when did Sacred 2 fall off of steam?

I bought it back when I read the studio was in serious financial crisis. I got it because I was afraid it would be taken off of Steam. Weird.

My only regret is missing out on Dragon Age 2 (Steam), which was not, and still isn't worth the pricetag.

I got into the TL2 beta weekend. Can't wait to try this game out later today!

I like it but I was hesitant to put too much time into it considering I presumably wouldn't be able to carry my character's progress through to the final game. I found the co-op was a bit pointless with random people going all over the map doing their own thing, and most of the treasure chests I came across had been opened and emptied out, but I can imagine it'd be cool if you were playing friends and co-ordinating, like sticking together as a team. When I was on the same screen as someone else it appeared that we each had our own loot so I don't know why those chests had been cleaned out before I got there. That sucked. I think I'll be playing strictly solo/offline.

With this Ubisoft weekend I've been hoping for some AC deals but I really doubt either Brotherhood or Revelations will be 75% off, I think Rev would be 50% at most and maybe 66% for Bro. Not sure I would buy either at those discounts considering I own them on PS3. Let's hope for the best, tho!

As you know, Ascaron [dev's of Sacred 1 and 2] are gone.

CDV published the Sacred 2: Fallen Angel game in USA - and the publisher basically went out of business.
They own USA distribution rights for anything Sacred 2 related still.
Since CDV's out of business, that's probably why you ain't see any game keys for S2:FA go up on Steam and other DD stores [in the USA].

Deep Silver is the owner the rights to Overseas Territories [non-USA] for publishing Sacred 2 products.
Deep Silver is also the NEW owner of the entire Sacred IP...and supposedly got someone working on Sacred 3.

Also, Deep Silver published Sacred 2: Ice & Blood expansion pack - which has NOT received a USA release.
Since they blocked S2:FA USA version owners from using I&B officially, you'd have to work around quite a bit to get I&B to work w/ S2:FA USA.
Or, you'd have to buy Sacred 2: Gold Edition UK Import [contains S2:FA + I&B - UK Versions].

We probably won't see a release Sacred 2: Gold Edition in USA or Sacred 2: I&B in USA, unless CDV and Deep Silver hammered a deal and agreement out of some kind.
It'd be nice if Deep Silver somehow could get Sacred 2 USA distribution rights from CDV, since CDV ain't doing anything w/ it....since CDV is basically out of business.

According to this thread over on the Winter Voices Steam forum, the game series might be coming back. Apparently the old company that published/developed the game went bankrupt. But the writer of the games bought the rights to the project and is trying to get the older installments back up on steam.

He also wants to finish the series. Apparently achievements for the fifth part appeared in the registry the other day, so it looks like it might actually happen.

Yeah, I had gifted the first episode to a friend who enjoyed it, and I got one of the DLCs in the summer camp promo that can now never be used.

I see from that list that I was lucky to grab Stubbs the Zombie before it poofed.

That is really excellent news. I would buy all the episodes if they came back. It's a strange game and didn't make a ton of sense, but it was moving in an undefinable way. It seemed so much like stream-of-conscious writing sometimes, the stumbling thoughts of a fractured mind - like the world was the character's soundboard.

Anyway, I liked it. I'm hopeful now.

Sounds like a great Kickstarter project! Especially if he can wrap up the story in one more episode. There are a lot of fans out there who were left holding the bag on this one. I bought the first release (Prologue) and was waiting for the series to finish before buying the rest. I guess people making a decision like mine didn't help the company at all. :-/

Jamestown is the daily deal. 66% Off $9.99 $3.39
For $4.40 you can grab the game and the DLC (worth it). It's an excellent shmup.

With this Ubisoft weekend I've been hoping for some AC deals but I really doubt ... Brotherhood ... will be 75% off

It's your lucky day.

It'll also be in the Because We May sale. I realize it might not be much cheaper, but who knows.

Never played an Assassin's Creed game, but was waiting for a good sale. $5 for both the first two means a purchase, and if I want more, I'll get the others during the summer sale if they're apart of it, or wait for 3 later this year.

you may want to skip the first one and just read a wiki....its kinda boring. I played the first one and have yet to play 2. All my friends tell me 2 is so much better. If you ask people you will find that to be the general consensus...but its also 5 bucks. But you've been warned


I bought the deluxe upgrade for 2 and brotherhood.

I didn't have a chance to jump in and recommend Delve Deeper while it was on sale, but others summed it up similarly to my notions. Great game.

Good (potential) news about Winter Voices. I don't remember what prompted me to grab all four episodes when I did, but I've yet to regret doing so.

I would generally agree except I think AC1 is worth having because it has some of the more challenging assassinations out of the entire series. AC2 is better all around, but I think if you get engrossed in the lore, having AC1 to go back and play through isn't a bad idea. I found it far more enjoyable after completing AC2.

Does AC2 still have online DRM? I know they removed the always-on requirement, but does it still require you to be online when you start the game?
Try SwagBucks, where you can earn prizes just for searching the web! I have earned more than $60 Amazon credit so far, and get about $10 more each month just for using it instead of Google.

I actually bought Sacred 2 and its expansion retail through GoGamer (remember them?), not realizing the expansion was UK only. Having not actually played it yet, I haven't had to go through the hoops of getting them to work, but I'm sure I'll try at some point.
