Yeah, in the last 1/3rd of the Indigo Prophecy/Fahrenheit game...

Spoiler


Were you that surprised I mean that was the advertised game play. QTEs get a bad name but mostly because you will be watching a cutscene and bam out of no where there was a QTE. It can keep you from enjoying the cutscene and only makes you feel minimally engaged.

I didn't find it a problem in IP because it had a simon says QTE gameplay. Heavy Rain is the same way. Some people find that gameplay boring/bad and I can understand that but QTEs aren't always a bad thing.

Lastly, the person you responded to might have meant this too but everyone I know that has played it and didn't like the last 3rd (including me) was because the story took a turn for the really wacky and nonsensical. This is a very bad thing when the game is heavily story driven.

Just a question regarding the 2012 Editor's choice - will it be single games only or will bundles be included? (I'm guessing it's unlikely, but worth to ask)


Bundles have not been taken off the table for that promo :).

The 1st 2/3rd's had some QTE's...
...but the last 1/3rd of the game literally bashes you over the head w/ them!

The last 1/3rd takes a more action approach to the game (b/c of the QTE's), while the first 2/3rd's did a better job of mixing QTE's and "pure" adventure game elements. I thought the more "pure" adventure game elements (investigating things, puzzle-solving, talking, making decisions) are what really made the game interesting.

Lastly, the person you responded to might have meant this too but everyone I know that has played it and didn't like the last 3rd (including me) was because the story took a turn for the really wacky and nonsensical. This is a very bad thing when the game is heavily story driven.

I absolutely agree w/ this 100%.

For me, the last 1/3rd was horrible b/c the game fell apart for me in every regard...
That would be b/c of the overdosage of QTE's; lack of "pure" adventure elements; and the horrible story turn.

Though, for $2.50-$3 (depending on where you buy it) - that first 2/3rd's is EASILY worth the price of admission.
It'd be plain silly to pass this deal up from either Amazon DVG or GOG.

Per the information on the product page, it does not and doesn't require a client. You download it from Amazon directly.

Any thoughts on the Price of Persia series, they're $2.49/ea (all 4 of them). Any chance they'd go on sale on Steam or is Ubisoft too busy with uPlay to have promos on Steam?

Also, any experience with King Kong ($2.49)?

Star Raiders ($2.49) from Atari activates on Steam. Any good?

Thanks in advance :-)

I can agree with that. Personally I was just happy there were no more stealth things because I hated that but I can agree with them dropping a lot of the other adventure elements.

Sorry but I had thought you were just bashing the game for having a QTE style game play style like most of the time I see when Quantic Dream games come up.

Edit: I just picked up Endless Space. Looks like a great 4x space game which I have been itching for.

Oh, and if anyone wants to split the Desert to Sea Bundle, I'd buy Spec Ops.

Is the PC download version of King Kong free of all traces of Starforce?

(I never had trouble with Starforce games until I tried to install the CD version of King Kong on my Windows 7 machine. It caused some real problems. I don't know that much about Starforce--maybe it only applies to CD products--so I thought I should ask.)

Great sale!!... but since I bought most of what Tony has thrown our way this year, I already got 99.9% of all games listed. First World Problem, I know...

Was just wondering if it would be possible to add these:

- Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes - I Am the Boss DLC (Steam)
http://www.amazon.co.../dp/B005O2TTCO/
(I already have the main game on Steam... just missing the DLC, which I haven't seen on sale yet)

- Mafia II: Digital Deluxe Edition (Steam) or Complete (Deluxe + DLCs)
(There is no way to "upgrade" a standard version to deluxe... so I'm still waiting to get to whole thing. Also, I own every other games in the 2K Mega Pack)

Thanks a lot!!

There is a free to play version on steam, test the game with that.

PS
No idea what added bonus does the paid for version has.

Very good question, couldn't find any info that Ubi should have patched out the StarForce protection :-(

Anyone knows if this is the "Gamer's Edition" as mentioned on Moby Games:

"Windows versions

Two different versions of the game were released for the PC: the original retail release which compares to the PS2/Gamecube and other current generation consoles, and a so-called Gamer's Edition only available through online purchases or OEM disks which features the improved models and textures from the Xbox 360 version and allows for even higher gameplay resolutions."

If anybody bought Indigo from Amazon DVG before, speak up - does it activate up on Steam?

This may be a little late, but it does not activate on steam. It's DRM free to my knowledge (no key in the G&S Library). Also, Indigo Prophecy isn't even on steam anymore. Not sure if it's the uncut version, I think it is just regular.
