Just noticed in the GMG thread that the following Steam games are on sale.


25% off voucher GMG25-UAAHK-6AI9S
The Lord of the Rings: War in the North $3.75 (Steamworks) with above voucher code
Jet Set Radio $3.75 (Steamworks) with above voucher code

Can anyone recommend either? I've been waiting for a good price on Jet Set Radio but haven't heard much on the HD remake. Also, LotR: War in the North looks fairly decent.

Yes, LotR:WitN is well worth the asking price. It's a decently fun action-RPG (emphasis on action with some leveling/equipment). If you're a LotR fan then even better.

Never played Jet Set Radio, (did play Jet Set Radio Future) but everything I heard about the game was that it was really good, so I am gambling on it being true as I just bought it.

Not a deal but this slipped by me. Shank 1 (!) was updated to include right stick dodging, separate button for booze pickups, and other tweaks. They also changed some of the cutscenes to really pare the thing down. The entire final battle exchange and finale are different radically.

If you've played Mark of the Ninja you probably noticed the cutscenes in that game are almost engineered to say as much as possible in as few words as possible. They do not at all waste your time. I'll need to play Shank 1 again completely to figure out all the changes but I think they looked back on some of the excesses of that game and thought it needed a similar style. I don't know if it is a good or bad idea but I am up for an excuse to play it again.

I can recommend War in the North. It's a pretty basic hack n' slash RPG, but if you are a LOTR fan it's pretty cool to see what they did with the story. Although you don't play as any of the main characters in the LOTR, It takes place the same exact time as the movie/books. You show up to places in the story (and meet up with characters) before/after the characters in the LOTR do. Played through it once on single player, and once Co-op. For $3.75, I'd definitely say pick it up.

Playing through WitN right now with my roommate and it's surprised me so far, in a good way. Decent loot system (though comparing loot is pretty badly done), combat is mostly basic but has good feedback, and the voice acting isn't too bad - especially important when Gandalf sounds weird :] For that price I'd say it's totally worth it.

Thanks for the heads up, will go back and play it some time based on this.

Hmm, I haven't seen a patch for this game lately so I looked under properties and it was set to "do not check for updates". I kept changing that setting and it kept reverting to "do not" so I ran verify integrity and it's converting the game to the new Steam format. I don't think I've seen that happen from verifying integrity before. Guess it's redownloading a chunk of it now.

I got it too.

I've got it from Alienware arena promo. They gave away some beta keys, which apparently turned into retail one. As it's only multiplayer game I think it's the way to gather some more playerbase.

btw. 5th episode of the Walking Dead will be released next wednesday.

So if anyone is interested in Epic Mickey 2, Amazon is selling the PC version as a preorder for $30. I have no clue what type of DRM it has but it's half off the PS3/360/Wii-U versions. I decided to take the plunge.

One can hope, unless they want to make it DRM free. I will also like that too.

The game is dead/dying. Seems like a giveaway to rejuvenate the player base.

I got the game for free as it is.

Hm. Jet Set Radio is tempting at that price, though if I wanted to play it, my Dreamcast is connected to my TV right now. Any reason I should play the Steam version rather than the original? I don't even have an HD monitor yet, though I suppose I could output to my TV.

Also, I did get a copy of Starvoid in my inventory as well.

What res is your monitor? HD is simply a marketing gimmick term, monitors have been "HD" long before tvs where. I still remember back in 98 gaming at 1600x1200

Darn I wish that I had been able to grab a beta key for starvoid now. I would have liked to give the game a shot as it looks interesting. If anyone has a extra copy and does not want it if you send it my way I would greatly appreciate it.
