Someone stop me from buying X-Blades ($1.99). I bought the Blades of Time Collector's Edition when Tony had it on sale and I'm feeling OCD. By the way, Blades of Time is schlocky but entertaining. My only complaints include a rifle mechanic that feels hard to aim (I'm using an Xbox 360 controller and am used to KBM - maybe that's it?) and the time rewind mechanic which I'm a bit baffled by at times. I found it tricky to kill certain enemies using it but maybe that's just me as well.



I see you got your first issue sorted =)

Yeah, the rifle mechanic is the lowpoint. It's not really that bad though. For some sequences it did having me reaching for the mouse to shoot. For actual shooting I like the machine gun or skyguard rifle.

The Time Rewind mechanic is pretty important. It works like this:
  • You depress the rewind button to rewind for longer. You can rewind multiple times for multiple copies. For certain bits of combat I fought alongside 4-6 copies of myself.
  • When time resumes, the old copy of you does exactly whatever you did. Enemy mobs to not do *exactly* the same thing they did before, they are reacting to the situation the multiple you (plural) are creating -- but it's generally close enough to not notice.
  • The multiple you (plural) create two general effects. The first is burst damage. This is pretty important for some encounters (notably the magic-bubble shields). It can be just plain helpful anytime though. The second effect is that the past versions of you can act as decoys so you can get behind/past enemies (notably that creature you cannot kill and the guys with canisters on their backs).

I dream in yellow comic sans.

The $5 was before it went B2P, I think you'll be waiting a while before that happens again. But yes, I agree.

How does the amazon promotional credit work. I see dark souls for 18$ and when I click buy it asks for my credit card info.

If i submit my info is it going to bill me 18$ or the 13$ since I am suppose to have 5$ off?

Or is there another screen to confirm the price once you get my credit card info?

Wow, and here I thought I was the only person with a spreadsheet...

All mine has though is purchase date, vendor, and price.


I have a spreadsheet with that too, as well as what box number in the attic houses it if it's a physical copy. 50 boxes in the attic with PC games in them dating back to the 80's.

Thoughts? Why is everyone getting TSW lately, just because of no monthly Sub?

I bought it when it was a sub and thought it was a fun game but not a fun game worth paying $14.95 a month for. Got to keep my cash for more sales.

Now that it's BTP, it's just a "fun game" again and well worth buying at the offered price.

Are you buying a game on the Editor's Choice list? Did you receive a $5 promotional credit for buying a digital game from Amazon between mid-November and the end of 2012?

I could of swore it said I get 5$ for buying roller coaster tycoon and dark souls was on that list. Even if I'm wrong I now have another problem, it doesn't recognize I bought roller coaster.

I got an email saying:
Did 'Rollercoaster Tycoon 2: Triple Thrill Pack [Download]' meet your expectations? Review it on Amazon.com

Email to the account i logged in, also has my name on the email. I click to rate it, and it also isn't appearing.

Nope, you activate it here: https://register.thesecretworld.com/

And the game updates and launches through it's own launcher, so there's not much point having it on Steam unless you're just anal about that.


I'm guessing you could add TSW (Non-Steam) as a Non-Steam game, right?
This way - everybody on your Steam Friends list, they could see if you're online playing TSW!

I practically LIVE on Steam...and Xfire; and Raptr.

When I first started the install (download) for TSW, it (optionally) installed xfire.

I assume that's a chat client, right? If we add the game (as a non-steam game) to steam, that should negate the need for the app as all my friends I would chat with are on Steam.

That sound correct? :)

Well I'm anal about it, I mean EA published the game, I should be able to get it on to origin. So, I've got an "escalated ticket" open with origin now.

Yeah, I just have it added as a non-Steam game and the Steam UI works fine. No need for xfire.

Which is fine, but that's not easier. It's a bit OCD if anything, but it's not easier at all.

Didn't think I was saying anything was easier or OCD or whatnot. I was just sharing my SS, someone mentioned Raptr, I replied with my very brief feelings on it and that's it. Maybe you thought I was replying to something you posted? IDK

Anyone recommend the Amalur DLC? Still have an unopened physical copy of the base game that I might sell if the DLC is good.


Yes, they're both pretty good and a decent value for the money.

I actually have from Retail --> C&C Saga Box (C&C Anniversary X: The First Decade - Collection Box + C&C3: Tiberium Wars) + C&C3: Kane's Wrath + C&C: Red Alert 3 - Premier Edition (tin box).
Yeah, I never even touched any of them.

I never bought C&C4 - probably b/c of the "always online" DRM. Even though, it has been dirt-cheap many times.

EDIT:
Oh, I'm also missing C&C: Red Alert 3 - Uprising.


Well, you want to avoid Tiberian Twilight because the mechanics are completely different from a standard RTS and not in a way that's good, IMO. When I lost my HDD to a crash, I lost my saves for it and I haven't reinstalled it yet. Basically you have one of three different types of mobile bases (each of which can produce a certain kind of unit only, like air) for your faction and your base can spam units which you then throw at your opponent's army. And you do this ad nauseum until you fail or complete your objective. It's a really weird mechanic that takes most of the tactical thinking out of the game and encourages a lot of near-mindless clicking. I didn't finish the campaign but I may someday.

Uprising is good, if only for the mini-campaign that it has. The Commander's Challenge is tough, and I didn't get too far in that. On the whole it's more RA3 and that's always a good thing.

C&C Ultimate Bundle in the OP.

Command and Conquer The Ultimate Collection

17 games, $25


Yeah, the big thing about this is that EA supposedly optimized the older games to run well on newer systems (XP/Vista/7/8). I actually have disc copies of most of the games I'd be interested in, but the last time EA slapped a collection of these games together, there was zero optimization and I can't get the older games like Tiberian Sun and the original RA games to run worth a crap on my computer now. However, $25 is way too steep a price to pay to play games I already own, so I'm going to have to wait for a much better sale.

If you don't mind it requiring Origin, I'd say go for it. Personally, I'm hesitant because I don't want to install another client (especially just for one game.)

Should be another screen. Will show on the right side:


True, Unless you have any 1-Click settings turned on, or have Pin-Less Debit card transactions turned on. Turn both of those off (1-Click has it's own section under account settings, but you'll have to go to "update credit card" to op out of PIN-Less Debits for that card. If any of those settings are turned on, you WILL NOT get a 2nd confirmation screen (the one that shows any credits that will be applied) and it instantly charges. Just an FYI.
