For anyone who cares about Amalur, it sounds like any potential patch won't be coming for a while, if ever:

http://forums.reckon...7928#post117928

The game is good and I think the big glitches are avoidable if you know about em. I played 76 hours so far without running into any, not even actively trying to avoid them. I will from now on, though.



You know I read that whole post as basically 'Sorry, we are EA's bitch'.

As for the game while I generally like RPGs the demo didn't thrill me. I'm willing to give it more of a chance but not at $40. I'll see how much they sell it for on the summer sale and re-evaluate at that time, providing there's not a ton of other stuff vying for my limited funds.

Typical EA..... But on the other hand, at least the game runs great, has little to no bugs, and well overall has a good amount of content for the money.

Is the game worth the $40 Steam price? Depends on the person, try the demo, read up on the game to see how you feel about it.

The amount of content is overwhelming, ridiculous amount of side quests. I think it'd take over 100 hours to complete everything. At 76 hours I've been skipping side quests for a while now and only just entered the fourth of five major regions, I must have at least 20 unfinished side quests in my quest log and picking up more all the time. Been mostly just doing quest after quest the whole time. If you like the game then it's worth full price, let alone $40. The difficulty is unbalanced but you can handicap yourself to help with that, that's my main complaint with the game. I don't regret buying it though. They've said they won't partner with EA for their two upcoming games, hopefully that works out.

If anyone wants Amalur, JakeNome is selling it for $35. Good trader. I've bought from him before with no problems.

Runespell 75% off at $2.49.

I liked the game a lot and bought it during the Winter sale. I think it was in a bundle.

If you don't have it, it is a pretty decent deal. I liked the game.

Also, Mount & Blade is a weekend deal. 75% off.

The game itself is fine; I have it, twice over from two different bundles in fact. I guess I am just sick of former bundle games being DotD but I should be used to it by now.

Not sure if it's intended but the Napoleonic Wars DLC for Mount and blade is included in the collection that's on sale. So it's 8.75 for all three games plus the DLC. DLC by itself would cost you 10 bucks

Mount and Blade worth getting? I came so close to buying it during the winter sale, but eventually held off. $8.75 for three games and the DLC seems worth it. Opinions?

I'm confused about From Dust on Steam due to this post at PC Gamer:

http://www.pcgamer.c...st-drm-removed/

anyone want to clarify? does it still have DRM, and does it sync with Steam or not?

Average is looking pretty high at the moment. I'll wait and see. If it gets closer to $5 then maybe I will bite on this.

I know there was a huge sh!tstorm over the DRM when it first came out to the point where Valve was even refunding people's money because of it, which almost never happens.

I haven't followed it since then though so I don't know if Ubisoft learned their lesson, but I somehow doubt it.

I don't think it's DRM free, just that part of the DRM was removed. They lied in their marketing about the DRM, so they removed the part that conflicted with what they said (you need to activate it once now, as opposed to constantly). It doesn't register on Steam from Gamersgate.

Meh. Already a member of the WLT, and both Machinarium and Samorost2 were in more than one bundle before if you beat the average. Windosill is also $1 during the Steam sales. Pass.

It's pretty good, but it frequently gets the 75% discount on Steam. Mount & Blade Complete Collection was only $5.56 on Nuuvem's website during their sale a few weeks ago, and it was Steam-redeemable. That was the time to have picked it up.

Not really feeling it. Basically they feel like the same types of game, and I already have Machinarium.

Have been interested in Runespell for a while and thinking about picking it up. Remember it was in an Indie Royale bundle once but I didn't want any of the other games so didn't think it was worth it. But now I'm left to wonder if I should get it now or wait for it to be in another bundle perhaps!

The humble bundle is a disappointment this time. I have Machinarium already (it's been in several bundles), have little interested in Samorost 2 after trying the first one out for a bit and not too sure about the new one based on their previous titles, and this is coming from a point-and-click adventure fan. The beat-the-average unlocks are interesting but it's way too high a the moment.
