Payday is fantastic. Much better than KF in my opinion and has more last appeal than L4D


I don't consider KF to be in the same gaming sphere as either Payday or L4D.

At higher difficulty levels, KF is about finding a good spot to bunker down and hold on tight. You bust your ass to the trader and back in between rounds and start all over again.

L4D and Payday are more objective-based games that require you to move from point A to point B. They scratch completely different itches for me and I'm sure most others as well. I always cringe when I see comparisons between KF and either of those games because they don't play out the same way at all.

I've logged three times as many hours in KF as either of those games. It has a tough initial learning curve, but once you get past that it can be intense.

Consider me Gobsmacked.

I wouldn't count on lightning striking twice though. Ubisoft has their own client (Uplay) that they're trying to get some traction for.





Medal of Honor Warfighter is already listed under "Highly probable". #42

I don't want to be that guy, but...

U-Play is installed if a game needs it, even if bought on Steam. So the client is "pushed" no matter the store.

Also, Ubisoft has been quite opened lately at the idea of expending their "horizons":

http://www.gog.com/c...?search=Ubisoft

If Ubisoft would really want to be aggressive in promoting Uplay, I would suggess them first to consolidate all the games I have bought with my Ubisoft account (Ubi store), and then redeem the games I bought from other distributors (like EA did - to a certain point - with Origin). Then, I might consider it as valid game client.

Just my 2 cents...

Dang it! I picked up Secret World thinking they'd fixed the graphics driver issues. Nope! Looks like I can't play it until I quit using an Nvidia graphics card.

Any idea how long some of the smaller things are gonna last (i.e. Viking Battle for Asgard). If it goes into January, I know what I'm using my credit on :D Speaking of which, anyone else think Viking will make Editor's choice? I'm hopeful, but it's not really a big title...

well, maybe it's just my card then. My card is a laptop card and when I tried to update it for the beta it crashed every time I loaded the game. I eventually had to roll it back and tune my graphics settings way down (talking about super jaggy image) just to be able to play for 30-60 min blocks before it'd lock-up and crash.

I highly doubt it. Also everything I've read points to it being horribly optimized for PC.

Thanks for the sale Tony. Unfortunately you spoiled us so much during the year that I have nothing more to buy from the current sale.


Problem is that all of these bundles are more or less repeats. A few have slightly better prices (most notably the strategy bundle), but otherwise we've seen all of this before.

So much for the Amazon winter sale. >_>

Games are more of a happy exclusive for Windows than something that they consider a major focus of the OS.

Spoiler


Weird. Games are the only reason I have windows installed on my desktop (gaming) machine.

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.

Spoiler


I find cutscene QTEs irritating. I just want to sit back and take it in, which adds some nice change of pace. Before QTEs were all the rage, I remember when PS2 games (e.g. DMC) would rumble during cut scenes. The would startle me. I often set my controller on my desk, so this made a terrble noise and frequency vibrated the controller right of the desk.

Sucks you were banned from NeoGAF, Tony. Tis a shame. :(

I've known about it for a while, but figured I'd just say something now haha


Their loss. Our gain.

Hey Tony, is it possible to get Steam version for Test Drive 2 Unlimited? Link here - http://www.amazon.co...02TAMQP1RCG2NNZ

Also, any idea what DRM is Split/Second?

Thanks!


It is SecuROM elsewhere. I'd guess that same on Amazon. If you have a console, I'd recommend getting it there. It's still a great game, I can recommend at the $5 mark. I own it from D2D.

From an ealier post (can't quote a post in a locked thread).

Split Second: Much fun. The gimmick set-destruction is very very well integrated and mastery of is critical to getting 1st place. Unfortunately, I've played 2/3 though three times... my saves get horribly corrupted. (Despiite rolling back to prior saves: GoGo Dropbox restore w/Link Shell Extention -- I should post about that separately). I want to finish this sometime by not exiting it before completion.


Spoiler
I see Drakensang: The River of Time is $5.
What's the DRM on that?
And do you guys carry that game's Philleason's Secret DLC?


I agree, Amazon's sorting options are in dire need of improvement. Drakensang complete was ~$10.20 (w/o IGN) during the first week of the GG August sale. I wound up picking it up on eBay for $10. My understanding is that only the Special Plastic Edition (retail) is DRM-Free.

75% on Sreeping Dawgs hasn't happened but it's been as low as $14-$15 which is like... 70% off.


$13.60 after GMG coupon, just before Thanksgiving.

Just a heads up to everyone who bought TSW, the Blood Raven pet only can be claimed on ONE character. The weapons and jackets can be claimed on every character you create, once each.


Wait, I was wrong. The game was just lagging or something and didn't show it.
