Can anyone recommend XIII? It looks cool and I'm on the fence

I spent $4.99 at Steam for a non working version of Vampre Masquerades: The Bloodline. Sure the price was great, but since I can't get it to run on my computer, it was a waste of money.

The first Unreal is looking good. I wish I would have played XIII when it came out for Xbox years ago, I might give it a go. I'm guessing I might pick up those two since I can buy the Far Cry's for my Xbox 360.

Oh gosh, you really can't get it to work? Have you asked around on the Steam forums to figure out what the problem is? I bought that one from GameFly for $5 during their Summer Sale and I've had no issues with it.

Can anyone recommend XIII? It looks cool and I'm on the fence

If you're on the fence, you could probably do with or without it. I played the demo on the PS2, and while it wasn't bad at all, it just didn't make me want to keep playing it.

I'm not a diehard FPS guy though, so that may just be a personal feeling.

Thanks for the update (especially for the new releases). Updated the OP and added ArmA II to the sale section.

That a good price for Roller Coaster Tycoon. I got it for that price from Amazon (I haven't seen it any lower) and it's definitely a fun little game that I wish I put more time into. Note that the platinum edition comes with expansions to make both zoos and waterpark attractions in your theme park as well, so it really adds a lot of content. Just be sure to take the time to go through the tutorials, even if they're a bit long and numerous!

Most of the negative reviews on GOG are people saying "it's too expensive", so don't let the 3-ish star rating discourage you. If you're a fan of the genre, RCT 3 is one of the best.

Quick ?'s. I have never used GOG, how does it compare to Steam? Once I purchase do I always need to be connected online to play?

Wife has been begging to replay these games, and I haven't seen it any lower. Pretty good price considering it includes all expansions.

There's no online connection or drm at all. You can either download the .exe files directly from their website, or use the GOG downloading client which just allows downloading but isn't an actual client for logging into anything or registering.

Yup, Thrakker got it. GOG is my favorite DRM free retailer. Everything is download, install, done. No need for the internet, nothing. It couldn't be more simple. All the old games are tweaked to play just fine on new machines too, which is something that can't be said for most other digital retailers.

And as for the price on RCT 3, I haven't seen it any cheaper than this either. I think Amazon had it for 50 cents cheaper, but that's it.

Pretty uncommon for GOG to rehash a sale. They had all the Ultima games on sale a month or two ago, but I don't think there was a bundle deal.

Unfortunately there's a lot of negative feedback about the Ultimas after 7. I already cherry picked the last sale and grabbed Underworld 1+2 and 7. I haven't touched 7 yet, but the Underworld titles are very good.

As for what I've heard about 8 and up (I haven't played it of course so take this with a grain of salt), I sadly have to agree. I believe they rushed 8 badly to keep stockholders happy and made a game that has more bugs and is just smaller as a whole.

As for the Underworlds, I've been looking for a sale on them for a few months so I must have missed it. How much was it off then if anyone remembers - 50%?

The last sale was 50% off as well, that's when I grabbed them. The biggest sale you'll see on GOG is pretty much 60% tops anyways. They don't do 66%, 75%, 80% sales like Steam does, because their base prices are usually lower in the first place.
