Personally, I think MP has been ruining FPS. A lot of them nowadays seem focused on MP and just some quick and thoughtless SP campaign. I guess I still remember stuff like the original COD games and Medal of Honor games where I thought the SP was stellar. I rarely play MP. Just not very good and don't really care about stats or stuff like that. I do like co-op but that isn't a focus of these games either.


That irks me too. I'm not a fan of co-op though, mainly because I don't know many people to play with. :-#

I've got the class to level 12, and I am really enjoying it. You can do some really cool and really different builds with this class.

Oh, I agree. Just wanted to let you know I am one of the oddballs, lol. I'll always remember (the first) MW as one of my favorite gaming experiences though - mainly for the multiplayer. And much like you said, it was the only game I bought new and was playing.

Spoiler

Word. & damn that's almost exactly like me bruh lol. I had a 360 for a while but it broke 4x, so I stopped gaming for about 2 years. I had to upgrade my laptop for school and I got a decent high-end one pretty much meant for gaming but not my intended purposes. I don't plan on getting a console again and I've been using my roommates PS3 for a year but honestly its just not as good as an Xbox. Wanted my own games so was like why not try PC, cheap and I can run games now. I'm decent at CoD MP, not good on PC either but hell I'm using a 360 controller still haha. Easier on consoles by far but I'm about the same when using a controller since I still am. MW2/3 is BS anyways, I'm better on BO.

erequena - interesting on Morrowind since I never played it. I spent a fair amount of time tho on Oblivion doing like you said, but primarily just screwing around doing side missions lol. The main quest was just...eh.

Got an email saying that all of the Painkiller games were on sale in the Indie Gala store. 50% off but...

I hate the idea of the "Gala Store" and this is why I never buy anything from there: obviously, Indie Gala has keys for these games which means they'll most likely end up in one of their bundles.

Anyway, not a (terrible) price for those wanting to play the game now so I thought I'd share. Otherwise, wait til it's in an Indie Gala bundle :)

I think they said and I could be wrong on this, that games in the gala store that haven't been in a bundle, won't be in one. Now they change their minds on things quite a bit so take that for what it's worth.

Even with that, it's only 50% off. I believe the Painkiller pack on steam which includes Painkiller: Black Edition has been 75% off before, but I could be wrong.

Also, whatever happened to you being able to spend "Gala Points" on stuff on their store? I guess it's just for certain things. I'd probably bite if the discount were steeper or of I could use these mythical galapoints.

Indie Gala store games will not be in THEIR bundles, but could always show up in other bundles, most likely Groupees.

Also, they have Gala points but they are worthless. For example, if they discount a game in the store, they then reduce or eliminate the Gala Point discount on that game. So the overall effect makes them useless.

Also, Tony from Amazon just posted this:

Wait, $10 for ALL THAT? Good god man, what are they doing, giving the store away? Jesus.

Sadly, I have everything I'd want out of that bundle, so I'm going to have to pass. But damn, $10 is worth Deus Ex alone. The rest is just gravy.

On that upcoming amazon pack, unfortunately I own all of those but that is an incredible deal.


Seeing as how KOA:R will probably never go on sale on steam again, http://www.gamersgat...llection-bundle this is quite a good price for it. Includes the dlc as well. Especially if you include the 15% discount that I'm still cross with IGN for never giving me.

Basically, can anyone convince me NOT to grab this. sunghost has graciously volunteered to assist me with the IGN discount should I decide to grab the game.

Wow, hard to believe you had any issues with Ep. 3.

3 was just so shocking and bleak to me. Definitely hit hard. 3 really felt like the depressing spirit of the book/show.

Hey guys, have a big question involving the new X-Com released yesterday and would like an answer. I'm not getting an answer on Polygon's review of it, so figured I'd copy + paste it in here.

The original X-Com UFO Defense was essentially random in its mission structure. Every game was different, in terms of enemy locations, attacks, etc. The only thing that remained constant was the final mission. This was a huge factor in what makes the original so damn replayable.

When they started making a new X-Com, i was worried they may scrap that in favor of a more common strategy motif, with set missions telling the story they (the devs) wanted to tell. So I guess what i’m asking is, does this new X-Com still generate all your missions on the fly? Will each experience (each time playing the campaign, for example) still be different? (With the exceptions of beginning and end)
Thanks in advance for any answers. =)


My thanks to any CAGs who can answer this.

Personally, I will probably jump at the sound of skeleton hooves and distant screaming for the rest of my life.

I think my wallet made a shrieking sound and scurried off into a dark corner, once I pulled up the Steam page.

Its a mix of the both in this one. There are missions that are part of the campaign, which you HAVE to do. But, its up to you when you want to do them. Currently, Im at a point where I have to get my engineers to make an item called the Skeleton Key. Then, I have to go to the world view and choose the campaign mission in order to progress with the campaign. However, theres no time limit or anything forcing you to do the mission. You can do it whenever you feel like it. In the meantime, you can keep searching the globe for random battles. You can do that for as long as you want.

Avoid Arcania, its expansion, and Forsaken Gods like the plague. In short: you just need the 'Universe' edition. If that ever becomes an IG you could probably just put in a $1 assuming the older ones would be the entry tier. That said keys might be problematic since Nordic (formerly Jowood) doesn't own the rights to Gothic 1 individually so only way you could get it would be in a Universe bundle.

Yes, it is all random. I played a mission and half way through it I realized I forgot to bring a certain item so I reloaded the game before I went into that mission and when I went to that mission again it was a totally different map and enemies and such. The devs said there are 80 different maps and a few variations of each one, plus the enemies generated are random each time as well. For some of the "story" missions, the maps were the same type (ie in an alien base or urban area) but were totally different from one another.

I've played around 28 missions (counting story and just active scanning for abductions) so far and haven't seen the same one yet.

That really is a crazy deal. I guess it's a good thing I have a friend to help with regional pricing. Already own 5 of 7 on consoles, but will probably grab them for the PC for a couple reasons.
