It's a great port, have it myself and have not heard anyone say otherwise. Looks great, framerate is solid, supports 360 controller too.


THIS.

Spec Ops: The Line PC is an awesome 7 hours of shooting and depression.

With Alice:MR and Syndicate going on sale soon, what are your opinions of a decent price to pay for either? I'm a big fan of good art styles, stories, and single player so they both have appeal to me.

There's a demo for PC. You can find it on Steam. Ran pretty smooth for me, but you can see for yourself how it goes for you.

Well, Syndicate was recently $5, so you can use that as a guide. Honestly, I'd be fine if it just hit that price point again.

Just keep in mind - w/ KOA:R Steam-version, while in-game, you will STILL need a valid EA Account and/or EA Origin account to activate any DLC.


i don't think that is right
there is steam dlc and it is not published by ea

Thanks for the insight, grabbing a copy!



Ran great on my 4 year old GTX 260. I'd advise not looking at any FAQs or walkthroughs (not really needed) as the impact is in the story and your decisions.

Guys, I wouldn't put too much hope into Tony getting Steam keys for Amalur. I passed along that address but my best guess is that the court appointed bankruptcy receiver isn't in a position to start negotiating with Valve for keys and open things up for sales. Most likely outcome is he politely declines and goes about setting up an 'auction' or negotiated sale of the IP. Really wouldn't expect the possibility of Steam keys for Amalur until that happens which is probably months off.


QFT, I'm actually thinking that this guy probably doesn't manage the business relationship, I'm partially convinced that no one does honestly. My hope is that I can find someone with the AUTHORITY to manage the business relationship, get them to agree to distribute with us, and then start working on a promotion.

That will be months, at minimum, off.

Cheers,
Tony

Indeed. It's more likely the IP will be sold off in the time. My guess is EA might end up with it eventually. That said, I wonder what actually happens to the proceeds from the Steam purchases. Obviously they aren't getting a ton of sales at $60 but surely a few people might have grabbed it.

Okay, so where are the Steam-version owners of KOA:R when I need them to clarfiy this?
Namely - this is asking about Legend of Kel DLC & Teeth of Naros DLC.

In-game while in KOA:R, there is a special SIGN-IN area - in which you use are supposed to use an EA Account or an EA Origin account.
That is how you activate any bonuses, DLC, etc etc.

Considering I think Rhode Island is looking to recoup tens of millions, they are probably not in rush to sell a few thousand keys at a discount so people here could get it in time for a $5 promotion.

Not that I own the Steam version but my best guess is while you need the Origin account to activate the preorder bonuses and such (or that promotional stuff from the demo or whatever) you don't actually need to do it to access the expansions.

I downloaded the demo based on all the praise it got here and was really impressed. I plan on playing it through shortly as I now have the full version Thanks to The End's pre-January 1st coupon. :)

I usually avoid military shooters mainly based on the general theme (huge Borderlands 1 & 2 fan though), but SO:TL really gripped me.

I did okay on normal with my KBM setup, but I might try a controller for the hell of it.

Performance-wise, it ran great on my gaming laptop (Win7, i5 proc, 4GB RAM, and ATI Radeon 5850M).

Well the idea is that they'll get the big money in actually selling the IP but, in the interim, if you can get a few thousand... nothing wrong with free money. But, again, I'm doubtful because it would take some negotiating and hell, the attorney fees alone might outweigh any sale profit.

I see the Sims starter pack is in the editor's choice list @ ~ $50. Do you fellow CAGs feel this is the lowest price its going to be this month (yes, I know nobody can guarantee that) and is worth biting now?

I don't have any of them and am sure my daughter would love 'em.

Thanks,

DA


If you don't have any of the pieces, the bundle is fantastic. The $49.99 bundle price is 72% off the individual retail prices; and if you have an EC coupon, it's a 75% discount. That's a deeper discount than any of the pieces have ever had as a standalone. (I think.)

Keep in mind, that's a guess. Wouldn't make sense as EA isn't 'publishing' the Steam versions. If they rigged it such that you don't need an EA/Origin account to play the base game on Steam I'm not sure why you'd need one for the expansion.

I've seen many of the Sims 3 expansions released BEFORE Showtime from $5-10 a piece before on Gamersgate.

Does anybody know what the cheapest Sims 3 base game has been anywhere?

SIDE NOTE -> I own Sims 3 (Retail DVD); Generations (Amazon DVG); Late Night (Direct2Drive/GameFly); and Showtime (Gamersgate).

It plays well with both KB/M & controller. I recall switching to KB/M for some precision shooting. I tend to use both (yes, even at the same time).

We need someone who owns KOA:R from Steam-version to comment on this all! :D

I have KOA:R + ALL DLC from Amazon DVG...and their version requires Origin.

Well, yes, because all non-Steam versions are published by EA and thus require Origin. I will say that, first hand, I know for a fact the Amalur demo on Steam doesn't require you to install/log-in to Origin. Nor would I expect it to because it was 'self-published' by 38 Studios and there is no mention of EA anywhere on the store page.

Spec Ops is a good port overall but suffers from the typical awkward control scheme where they bind like 4 different things into a single button and it changes on context. Makes sense for a controller, not so much for a keyboard. Let me rebind more stuff so that shift/sprint/jump/makeasandwhich aren't all bound to the space bar!

Yeah they aren't exactly set up to do stuff like this. I think effort-wise they'll just wait to see if they can sell it off all at once since it's been such an embarrassment for the state.

Was that really necessary? Is being bitchy a requirement for posting in this thread or something?

Yes.

What if The Walking Dead was $12.49 as the deal of the week next week?

What if...

... you had it at $10? ;)

Guys anyone have a screen cap of then Miami Hotline was for sale for $5 on Amazon? I want to get my $2.50 back, no lie. I bought it when it was $7.50 so im a little pissed. Well if anyone can help me, that would be great.



Nice.

Concerning The Secret World controls, anyone have any experience with 6+ button mice that they want to share concerning any MMO? It seems to me it would be easy to map numericals (1-6) and quick action keys to them. For some reason I can't map anything to the regular left and right clickers on my mouse. Any experience with "gaming mice"?

I use a Razer Mamba, which has two side buttons. I map my basic attacks to them, my resource using attack to the middle mouse button, and the rest of my skills to the number keys. Works well.

It plays well with both KB/M & controller. I recall switching to KB/M for some precision shooting. I tend to use both (yes, even at the same time).
