I kinda liked Sin Episodes. It isn't until you get FEAR Perseus Mandate that they finally just give you a survival mode. Sin Episodes comes with one out of the box.

That said, it's not spectacular but it's a fun ride.

Note, I also recommend Bodycount and Inversion and Binary Domain for similar quality shooters

It was a smooth ride.

For as much as I was hoping to get a Trine 2 coupon to work, I should probably remind myself that I never bothered to finish Trine 1. Holiday achievement, next in line, never looked back.


I was actually the same way.. lol. But Trine 2 is a bit different, it has online co-op. I bought it during the Steam summer sale and played through it with Severose. It's worth it for the co-op alone. This was a few months AFTER I played through the PS3 version (got it free from PS+) with a friend.

So keep in mind, I'm the type of person that almost never buys indie games when they're not in bundles. Trine 2 is worth adding to the exception list. It may not be in a bundle until next year.

can't believe skyrim is still going for 25.99 at the cheapest

i paid that (give or take) for BL2 before it even came out


Unless you were lucky enough to score a TRU $10 copy or a Best Buy price-match. I was happy with that price, even when I know I won't play it for years, because even the price of Morrowind is still stubbornly high.

Nope. You just get your steam key through the webpage, like the Gods intended. I've bought a fair number of steam and non steam games from them. GameStop/Impulse is the only one that requires a client to get your steam keys.

Oh yeah, I should note that if you had a Direct2Drive account it should work on Gamefly. Gamefly mostly took over the D2D assets. My Gamefly account dates back to D2D. You can still download most games you bought on D2D from Gamefly.

I'm psyched Doom 3 is back on the store at a lower price. I hope to pick it up cheap for The Dark Mod.

Have there been complaints about Doom 3: BFG? I confess, I haven't really paid much attention to it. I know that people were pissed that the original game was temporarily removed from the store. But that's a separate issue entirely.

You can't use the Doom 3 vanilla mods with it and there's no option to have the original configuration of flashlight separate from gun (the flashlight is always attached to the gun in BFG).

Oh I see.

Well I first played through Doom 3 on the Xbox. Being a console version, it was obviously impossible to mod the game so that I could have the flashlight on the gun. I recall wishing that I could do it somehow, but there was no way to do it on the console. And at the time, my computer wasn't nearly powerful enough to play Doom 3, so I was stuck playing on the Xbox.

For me, playing with the flashlight on the gun is the preferred way to go. But even if I'm never gonna miss the ability to play it the original way, it does kinda suck that there isn't even the option for those who somehow enjoy not seeing where they're going/shooting. Not being able to use any of the other older mods seems to be the bigger loss to me though.

I've heard that it looks worse than Doom 3 vanilla and that the new content sucks.

Didn't the Mass Effect Trilogy come out just a few weeks ago? With that 20% code it'll go down to just 24 bucks on Gamefly. Nice deal for anyone who hasn't played the games.

Having completed Sleeping Dogs and the DLC, I can say that really none of the DLC is worth it. Nightmare in North Point is ALMOST cute in the Chinese death mythos but it never gets B-movie good like it wants to be. Plus, the missions are rather lame. Just the same stuff from SD but now with less of the good pacing and variety to back it up.

The only DLC I think might be worth it would be the cop missions DLC, but even then those are short shootouts, chases, and hostage situation sniping fests. Literally nothing else is worth your time. Not even in the kitsch SR3 sense. The game is pretty full featured as is.

Did they say half off or just that it would be on sale? I looks like everyone else that carries it are selling it at 25% off for the holiday sales.

Their news post, I could've sworn said half off but I guess it doesn't. Oh well. Either way, might not be a bad idea to wait, unless you have the IGN promo at Gamersgate.

Ah, SiN Episodes. This was my first Steam game many years ago. It's pretty fun while it lasts, a relic of the era of female characters with gratuitously-enormous busts in games (oh, wait, that isn't over yet). In any case, yes it's worth $2.50 with the caveat that there will never be an Episode 2 or 3, so if you're a fan of cliffhanger endings, grab it. Ritual went out of business before any follow-up to Emergence was completed. This is also why the folks thinking this will appear in a bundle are probably wrong.

I had fun with it -- basically a side scrolling/platforming MOBA. I will say the community didn't seem that large and the balance is such that you can be dumped into a game with totally inexperienced players matched against a pre-made team/a lot more experienced players and get rolled.

Eventually I'll pick it up but will probably wait for 75% off and/or a possible appearance in an indie bundle (Swords and Soldiers was in two -- same developer).

I'm waiting to see if GamersGate makes Torchlight II a daily deal this week during its sale. Nothing to lose since I can always get it for the "regular" sale price if I really want although 25% off isn't all that tempting even with the other stacked IGN/G2PO/BlueCoin discounts. If it hits 50% + Misc Discounts though, I'll be all over it.

After the burning disappointment that was Anna, I was craving for a good adventure with a subtle dreamlike taste, and it appears that The Dream Machine could be easily my cup of tea!

It also reminds me of another old clay-animated adventure, The Dark Eye, inspired by the works of Edgar Allan Poe, although that one was far more dark and grim...

I recommend it. I had a good time, although I found a bit of frustration in one of the chapters. My girlfriend, who plays about 1.5 games per year, and I played it together and she really got really sucked in, which is rare. The only bummer is that the episodes get released pretty far apart. As far as I know it's just the two guys and the animation style doesn't make for quick work.
