it did hit $2.50, not sure if it was this past summer sale or last holiday sale.

My purchase history shows it was 2.49 during the holiday sale last December.

Perhaps my fellow CAG's can help me out. I'm not sure if I should go ahead and grab The Bard's Tale. I've been mildly interested in the game since the PS2 days, and I've simply passed on it every single time. Now, the game is $2.50 and even includes the originals. However, I still can't seem to get myself to take the plunge, and the deal has less than two days to go.

So, CAG's - Is The Bard's Tale worth $2.50?

I looked it up and it seems like a pretty prominent issue, but sometimes after I shut down, all the non-Steam games that I've added to my library get removed. Does anyone have this problem or have a solution for this?

I don't know if anyone has some advice but I'm about the shelve Sleeping Dogs as a big disappointment. Combat is just ridiculous. Countering/blocking is sluggish and leaves me open if I mistime it but "mistiming" it is practically random considering how the game responds to hitting the button. I'm stuck in a fight against five guys which I barely make it through only to fight five more immediately after and haven't come close to winning.

I'm not randomly mashing mouse buttons; I'm trying to time the blocks and grapple and all that stuff. But the game has gone from "This is cool" to "Wow, this is the exact opposite of fun" within a very short period of time. I mean, if this is how the first hour is, I don't think the fights are going to get easier further on.

Maybe I just suck and shouldn't play the game or something but I'm hoping that's not the answer.

Considering that now you also get the original games when you buy The Bards Tale, I highly recommend it :)

I'm sorry, but I just noticed the tagline under your username. If that's true, I'm sorry for your loss - I enjoyed your story of how your cat became so fond of the Miniature Display Tent, and I understand how difficult it is to lose a family pet.

Oh thanks man, it was a few months ago I had to have him put down. As far as the bards tale goes I've been having fun with it when I've been stayin at my GF's place...its def worth the 2.50 IMO...and the added originals..while I havent played them def add to the value.

I'm not sure if it's the same issue, but sirfragalot mentioned something about the timing being off for combat when he first played. Maybe ask him if he knows anything?

I haven't played the game, so can't help personally.

Quick question on steamgifts, sorry if this is the wrong spot for it. I was trying to enter a contest to win "Payday The Hiest" and every entry I look at it says "exists in your account". What does that mean? I tried to view my winnings thinking maybe I've won it but missed the notice and nothing is there? I looked at a giveaway for Borderlands 2 and was able to enter that one just fine.

Before shutting down your computer, try exiting Steam and waiting for the Cloud sync to finish first.

That works for me.

I just experienced HL: Blue Shift playing audio off the CD drive. It was right when the zombies are introduced and they are pulling a guard apart by the arms. The music starts and I think, "Action time!"

HL has weird spacey electronica so this song didn't seem out of place. It doesn't have typical dubstep bass so I just thought it was from the 90s. Full surround with a sub sounded fucking awesome.

Surprised no one has responded yet. Here is what happened my first two times playing SD: I hated the combat! Granted these were random times my bro handed me the controller without me having played it at all, but I too found the combat system horrible and unresponsive. And this was on the Xbox. But when I bought it and started playing it on my own on the PC I have the opposite feeling now. Probably my favorite combat system in a GTA style game.

Tips are to do side missions/cop missions/ return jade statues, etc. to level and get better at fighting. All this really does help. If you try to follow just the main story line or do the cameras without exploring some of the side stuff it will take longer for the combat to level up for you. It's all about timing. Attack one or two guys, counter when another guy comes in (Red) and then attack him. When I was being overpowered my strategy was to grapple as many people I could and do environmental kills to thin the ranks and then deal with a smaller crowd. That said, right now I can handle gangs of 10-15 thugs ;)

i played sleeping dogs on ps3. combat was responsive and fantastic. don't know about pc, but the melee was on a long list of great things about the game.

however, different enemies do need different strategies. you can't use certain moves against certain enemies or you'll get beat down.

but yea, i absolutely loved that game.

I think I might be getting Borderlands 2 curtsey of Newegg's decision earlier tonight to sell OEM copies of the keys that were supposed to be given out with video cards. I'm curious as to what they do. Also, is there a way to redeem the key code without having the game yet?

They allow you to open a chest which gives you awesome loot that is dependent on your current level. ;)
