Dino Beatdown has a MetaCritic of 35 and no one is in here telling us to buy it?! Motoki, we need you!

I tried to set up a group buy when it accidentally went on sale, but then they took it off sale. If they put it on sale again I've already got at least one person who wanted a slot reserved :)

Ooo, new game, Closure, looks amazing. I can't wait until this gets a sale price, and look at those metacritic scores.


I'm also really looking forward to picking up and playing I Am Alive.

Lastly, Humble Bundle VI is coming! It showed up in the Steam registry.

Stop reminding me! It's been in the registry for a couple of days and I really thought it would be live today. I'm on a plane right now and signed in just because I expected some discussion of it.

Played it on PS3 and loved it. I'll definitely be picking it up on Steam when it goes on sale.

Tempted to bite on some of those. I've always wanted to play the original FEAR, and I still need to pick up Arkham City. Still, I've got a backlog to work through and I have a feeling those games will be available for cheaper some time during the holiday.

I just bought Renegade Ops from Amazon and I knew it activated on Steam, but the code included both DLC's that are available (Coldstrike Campaign + Reinforcement) also. In fact the receipt from Steam after typing in the code said "Renegade Ops Retail + DLC". Just an FYI for you guys, cause $3.75 for $23 of content is insane. It was an awesome deal to get the base game for that let alone the whole package. Hell that's an awesome price if you already have the base game and wanted to just pick up the DLC.

http://www.amazon.co...heapassgam08-20


The trick to that is that everyone who bought Renegade Ops first got the DLC for free. I think it was a good will gesture out of the ridiculously over-delayed launch. Amazon codes are still of that batch though I do not know if they can guarantee it.

The DLC is worth it well enough, though I didn't like the main game.

$7.50 for FEAR 2 seems high. $5 for FEAR1 is a good deal no matter how you slice it. I think FEAR 3, which I feel is better than FEAR2 but from a different design group with a different-ish take on the series, has been $5 before

EDIT: Related. FEAR is a game that's supposed to be a paranormal horror thriller that features you fighting a faceless army of super soldiers with bullet time and slow-mo jump and slide kicks with half-splattered ragdolls flying everywhere.

I mean, that's two very disparate tones glommed together. Everyone and their dog has commented about this all series long and it really speaks a lot about Monolith that they managed to patch that together into something that was really good. of course, if you played NOLF1 and 2 you already knew they were geniuses.

I'm still thrilled about Humble Indie Bundle VI being prepped for its inevitable unveiling, but I'm also quite happy to see Closure is making its way to the PC. ("Back" to the PC, technically, but nevetheless.)

Yeah, the prices on a lot of those WB games suck. I love Amazon, but you can easily find better deals for most of those if you wait. The entire F.E.A.R. collection was $10 on Steam during the summer sale, and F.3.A.R. goes on sale for $5 or less often enough.

No one's forcing you to shop at Amazon. If you love Steam so much why didn't you buy it there?

So, Arkham City GOTY is available on steam now ($23.99). Does anyone know if it includes the Catwoman DLC?

Ah, the news page for it says no :cry:

I actually really like that Amazon now has Steamable versions for the LEGO games. Those seem to rarely go on sale on Steam, so I plan on snatching them up once they hit the $5 point on Amazon. Even now, the prices for the LEGO games are decent!

Oh, and I did buy the F.E.A.R collection on Steam ;)

Do you mean the Catwoman DLC that is the online pass for the consoles? If so yes it most certainly should have that, it is part of the base game on pc and isn't differentiated like on consoles, as far as I know, I'll double check though for ya.

All I know is if you look at a console GOTY version it says it includes a Catwoman DLC. That would be awesome if it was just part of the base game.

No one asked for your opinion Suntoast. Maybe you should spend more time playing F.E.A.R. collection and less time whining.

Yeah I think it is just a matter of PC vs Consoles, the consoles the Catwoman DLC was the online pass for the game, so if you bought it used you didn't get to play as her, where as on PC there is no online pass or online pass system because there aren't used copies of PC games typically. Also, I own Arkham City the base game on PC but not on Steam, and I definitely played as Catwoman and it was a lot of fun, again the reason I don't think it is listed is just because this was the online pass for consoles, currently the only hard proof I have for you that it is included is the following
http://marketplace.x...15-d80457520fa0

http://store.steampo....com/app/57400/

On the GFWL page and even the Steam page for the base game there is no mention of Catwoman DLC anywhere, but as I said I'm about 100% sure the base game is what includes the Catwoman DLC because I played through it, so it truly is a GOTY edition, and for $24 that is a killer price, if only I could get the Harley Quinn DLC on GFWL for a decent price :lol: Oh well eventually I'll get the GOTY :lol: .

Also on their forums
http://community.bat...man-DLC-(for-PC)

Everyone seems to indicate that it is included and like I said I've played it so I'm certain I played as Catwoman so this version should absolutely have it, just need some confirmation somewhere would be nice, even just someone who has played it on PC as well, I figure that might give you a little more confidence that it is there than just me :P.

You are very welcome, I'm always glad to help a CAG.

On a side note I've been playing Dino D-Day, they had a massive update in July and somehow there are still people playing and to be frank it is awesome, it is WW2 and the Allies and Axis have Dinosaurs to help fight the war, it has a playable T-Rex and bots so you can play by yourself offline and online with others and online with bots too. I hope it goes on sale so more people will play, but again people already are check it out here. http://store.steampo....com/app/70000/ I'm super excited that the developers have been supporting the game since release because to be honest it was a wreck and through their patching they've done amazing and deserve to be supported.

On a side note I saw you guys also looking at Orion: Dino Beatdown which looks neat and for some reason is 25% off here http://store.steampo...com/app/104900/ . I have no idea what that is on promotion for but that one looks good, has anyone played that, I'm hoping to see that one cheaper as well. I know these games have a super narrow auidence (or maybe larger than I imagine) but they are pretty cool and thought I'd let my fellow CAG's know about them.

Thanks for pointing that out. I haven't played Dino D-Day since January, but news of a new update is great so I will try it again this weekend. I enjoyed the game alot and it was in an indie bundle in January, but not many people play it here.

Orion Dino Beatdown looks cool to me too, but I am waiting for it to hit 50% off and then get one of the 4 packs before I buy it.

Edit:

This game is coming out soon too (though not sure if on Steam):
