Are you guys going to start being more wary of buying games on steam 75% off for $5? These bundles are really making me kick myself considering I spent probably $20 on all the games in the THQ bundle...


Nope. I'm not even angry with this situation because of the situation THQ is in.
I already owned all the games from the bundle and spent way more and dont regret that at all for the amount of time/fun I had with the games.

Saints Row bought for $30 I think when it first came out
Metro 2033 bought for $45 as preorder
Darksiders bought for $10, I double dipped on this game as I owned it for the PS3 when it first came out.
Company of Hero games, owned the first from awhile ago, bought the pack on a Steam sale for like $10
Red Faction Armageddon bought for $6, only one I haven't played yet.

Bought that bundle for Red Faction and a PC Copy of Saints Row 3. This bundle is crazy but seeing as they are about dead, it makes sense. Hell of a deal though.

You are giving them too much credit.

An EA Humble would include nothing but demos and a Need for Speed World and Battlefield Heroes (both already free).

Of course with EA, you would then try to activate your demos on Origin and see that in fact you just received their entire catalog due to a glitch.

In all honesty EA could kill a bundle if they really wanted to. Dead Space 1/2, Dragon Age 1/2, and Mass Effect 1/2. Start at $5, unlock the sequels at $10. Considering the bundle deals on Amazon in the past, it's totally feasible. Unlock would be Mirrors Edge. That get's people attention because everyone will assume it's to market the supposedly upcoming sequel. And they'd probably make bank on DLC purchases.

But yeah, it'll never happen...

Lol @ DA1 for $5, and you'll get DA2 at $10.

Should be DA1+2 for $5, and they burn a copy of DA2 for $10.

Agreed. I remember listening to the Giant Bombcast going on and on about how DA2 was the biggest disappointment of the year (not necessarily the worst game, just the biggest disappointment), and I thought they were being way too harsh.

Then I played and completed DA2... and I have to say I agree with them :( I don't think DA2 was bad, and I don't even mind the "dumbing down" that much (ME2 dumbed down the RPG elements and is still one of my favorite games of the decade), but I feel they really messed up the story and player choice, and I didn't even like the majority of the characters. Oh well, that's a whole other tangent...

Here's hoping DA3 Inquisition displays a return to form.

Hm, I wonder what 2012's Biggest Disappointment would be? I've loved all the games I beat this year (Spec Ops: The Line, Walking Dead, Sleeping Dogs, To The Moon, Penny Arcade 3, Driver: SF, Darkness 2, Witcher 2...). I think the only games I didn't like much were Diablo 3, Max Payne 3 and Darksiders 2 (I'm 1/2 way through and I just don't want to go back to it). I feel like someone would throw in the whole ME3 ending controversy but hopefully we've had time to regain our senses.

I would say without a doubt Diablo 3 was the biggest disappointment of the year. Not a terrible game, per se, but really a letdown.

RE: Far Cry 2

Chalk me up as another who didn't like it. I knew I should have liked it. I know I wanted to like it. For some reason I just didn't. I gave it multiple attempts over periods of time and just couldn't settle into it. I don't know if it was the locale, the traveling or what. I wouldn't call it bad by any means. It didn't leave a bad taste in my mouth, if anything it was like water and left no taste at all. Though Far Cry 3's gameplay does have me intrigued enough to keep an eye out for it possibly this time next year.


I like Far Cry 2 - namely, the main quests. That stuff was really good - and the missions were much more interesting than unique. Though, that often goes w/ the turf of open-world games.
Some of the side-quests and non-main stuff was repetitive (like AC1), though.

EDIT:

How about I give them $10 to pretend DA2 never happened and was all a bad dream?


Sure, DA2 was NOT anywhere on DAO Ultimate's level and not even anywhere near even close to the original game AT ALL....
...but, what games really ARE going to be on DAO Ultimate's level?
Not many, AFAIK.

I still thought I got my time and money's worth on DA2 ($32 or so that I spent on it).

Alright guys kind of off topic kind of on topic I guess? I had been listing my game collection the past couple of years and was too lazy to do a A-Z order well now I am on my last list of games to redo and that is my PC section. I over the summer bought the big Sega pack on Steam and ever since then I listed all the Sega Genesis and etc games as their own and not "Sega Genesis & Mega Drive Classics". So should I just count them all as one game under that name or should I label them individually since you can buy them separately and or in smaller packs and just put the "Genesis & Mega Drive Classics" thing next to the name of the title? I don'tusually count compilations as more than one game like for example "Sonic Mega Collection" I only count that as one game. So guys what do you think count them as one game "Genesis & Mega Drive Classics" or by their original titles?

I thought Diablo 3 was pretty good, as well.
I just am NOT a fan of the "always online DRM", when I was easily able to GO SOLO the entire game no problem.
Granted, it is quite fun, when playing w/ others online.

Eh, I loved Max Payne 3. Just finished the SP portion last night.
I thought Mass Effect 3 was great, except for the last 5-10 minutes (the end stuff), more or less.

I played it quite a bit when it first came out, but found the ONLINE ONLY to really be a turn-off. Even though I was playing single player, and have the battle.net mobile authenticator program, someone was still able to sign in to my account and empty my character of both gold and loot every 3 or 4 days. After about 2 weeks of that, I gave up on the game, called the $60 a loss, and moved on.

Yes, AC1...another game I just couldn't force myself to like. And similar to FC2, I really did want to like it. I did just pick up Brotherhood, so I'm hoping it was just an isolated incident with AC1.

See, the D3 always-online thing never seemed an issue to me, mostly as after the first solo playthrough I never played D2 offline. Even when playing alone I would create a game on Battlenet. Some items were only available on ladder games, plus I could take a character I was using on my own and get together with a friend or two.

D3 is what it is -- a loot grinder. The negatives associated with it and Blizzard were more than enough for me to pass on it in favor of Torchlight 2 (never mind the $40 price difference... which was more like $47 as I paid approximately $12 for TL2 at release). Unless you're looking to get into the digital item market via the RMAH there is little difference between the two games with TL2 coming out ahead on most of the distinctions.

I'm doing the same, I remember Black being on sale for $5 by itself during the summer sale. So I'm sure it will hit lower during winter.
