    A New Game Everyday

Posted 06 December 2012 - 12:50 AM

I saw this in my rss feed and figured Id share it:

Amazon offers a $5 off $25 Amazon credit for free when you answer a question and post it to your Facebook page. (The credit will then be applied automatically to your Amazon account.) That's tied with our mention from two weeks ago as the largest such credit we've seen from Amazon. Limit one per person. Credit expires December 9.

Checked the fine print and doesn't work on digital products.

I don't know what was so good and unique about FC2.
It certainly wasn't the story; and it certainly wasn't copy & pasted side quests.
The performance on my (then) PC, bugs, and broken quests were crappy before Patch 1.01 dropped.


It was Tom Chick, actually, in a review of Far Cry 3.

His opinion may not be a majority one, but it is well-considered. Of course, from reading his columns and such since they were actually in these things called magazines that came to my house each month, I know he tends to be a bit masochistic in what he likes from a game.

While the weapon-breaking; car-fixing; malaria; and all of that stuff was cool in FC2...
...FC2 was NOWHERE as ground-breaking & as interesting as STALKER: SOC & Call of Pripyat.

I have not played Far Cry 3, BTW.

Anyone experiencing dreadfully slow Amazon download speeds right now? Tried downloading Far Cry 2 (4GB) and the download is holding firm to taking 29 hours to download. Really?...

Amazon is generally slower than Steam for me, but not that slow. It took me about 3-4 hours to download Crysis earlier today and that's what, 6-7GB.

The other thing that was happening to me was that I kept losing connection to Amazon's servers. Not my internet connection mind you, but the download installer kept dropping it's connection. It happened for the last time, with a timeout no less, with 500MB left and I had to restart the installer. I was afraid I was going to have to wait through that whole mess again, but luckily it picked up where it left off and the game seems to play fine.

It seems like no one has brought up the original in this discussion. Is FC3 closer to FC1? Because I did enjoy the original.

Also, he complains about the fact that you can permanently destroy/kill things, which he depicts as a bad thing, even though it seems fun (similar to Red Faction: Guerrilla?), so I can tell he has some bias, among other reasons -.- Either way, this one's still on my list :D

Well, yeah. Everybody has some bias. It's the people that pretend they don't when they write reviews that bother me.

The Steam forums are down again, or it is just me?

This is probably asking a bit much, but could you please do a figure out a repeat sale on Spec Ops: The Line, Tony? Even if it was a bit more, like $7.49, it would be much appreciated.

I liked FC2. It wasn't perfect but the setting was nifty, I generally enjoyed the game play and open world nature. The outposts were annoying but not exactly as bad as described above: they typically had 4-5 men, not 15.

FC3 is fun so far (only a couple hours in) but not without its own ridiculous nature. Such as a cash limit of $1000 unless you craft a new wallet and the only material that can hold money is the skin of a pig. And not a boar or a tapir, it needs to be a pig because nothing else can hold money. :roll:

We'll have Eve Online for $4.99 for you MMOers out there. Right now there's nothing else planned though, most of our big deals will start again closer to Christmas.
