i wonder how many people that support the indoctrination theory have sat down and thought about how pissed they would have been if it was actually the ending of mass effect 3 before anyone outside of bioware ever thought of it?

i think it would be about like when neo got to the control room in the matrix 2
(i'm sorry but yes there really was a sequel to the matrix...never forget)


I never have watched Matrix 3 thanks to that.

But about IT being the end of ME3:

Impulse bought The Secret World, gonna start downloading, if anyone can point out how to check for the Issue 5 DLC I'll look into it. Although it'll probably take a while to download.

MMOs aren't the same as coop games. Even hardcore MMO raiders want some time to just do things by themselves, because that's what they want to do, or because they don't feel like dealing with people atm.

Some people just want to run around and pet the cute little bunnies, so I wouldn't slam them too hard for not wanting to reroll when they die. ^_~

I was more referring to the naked corpse run to retrieve your gear, and the 75% XP penalty if you didn't.

I played and raided WoW for years. I've been in a few MMOs concurrent and since, nothing has the life-sucking grip of wow. But I see that as a good thing. =) Also TSW is now Buy2Play, so no monthly subscription fees (and the mental pressure that brings).


I do agree. WoW had one of the best death deterring penalties out there at the time.

Sounds as if you and I have very similar views on WoW. I LOVED it while I played but it really does have a life-sucking grip as you say. I really do miss playing it but don't let myself be pulled in because of how addictive it is.

The best times I've ever had in gaming where during raids.

The only way I would ever get back to WoW was if somehow my wife started gaming and played it with me or I got divorced and found someone who did lol.

It's in the item shop under "Boosts". It should cost zero coins.

So I just purchased The Secret World from Amazon and I can CONFIRM that you indeed do get the Initiate Pack and Issue 5 for free with your purchase as of right now. If you are like me who was on a 24 hour guest pass you can use the Initiate Pack and Issue 5 on the character you already have created. You claim your items via the in game store under "claim items".

Here is a pic below for proof. But I do not know if you still get the Initiate Pack and Issue 5 if you hold on to your key and activate the game on a later date.

Activation is the only way for them to know when you bought the game, so I'm going to guess you won't get the content if you buy your key and sit on it for a while.

Sims Medieval is a standalone game if I'm correct.

Might get the Premium pass for BF3...urgh.

Finally bit on The Secret World, played the beta and loved it minus the typical sub fee. So 13$ seems perfect for a mmo. I just wonder how they are planning to pay for the game now that it is buy to play.

Be funny to see some hardware in the EC list...

It looks to me like monthly $5 expansions (that are supposed to fo free after some amount of time), on top of the usual clothes, XP boots, etc.

Is amazon going to price match the darksiders franchise pack on steam? Tony?


We'll have the same deal, possibly better (if we include it in the EC list, which we're still discussing), so we're not matching today.
...
Cheers,
Tony


Thanks a lot for this, it convinced me to hold out and wait for Amazon deal instead of Steam. Missed the first Darksiders Franchise sale on Amazon :/

Wow!! Fantastic job, Tony, on the new structure of the OP! I really like it. It's informative for new CAG's & vets alike. The choices you made on the placement of topics, the font size, the numbered FAQ's, including the console currecy, and just really impresses me. With past iterations I could take them or leave them, but if they functioned well for you, that's what counted the most. It seems like you struck a perfect balance now (I hope).

I just wanted to give props where they are due, and the OP (or the 1st 2 posts) is remarkable, bud. It's clear, concise, and keeps me from having to go back & forth between normal font size & squinting. Keep up the great work! :applause:

I didn't realize Amazon sells Microsoft Points digitally. Now if I buy a GFWL game I can get the DLC without giving MS my credit info(I've had issues with their customer service in the past).

Hmm, another thought on price match requests (apart from the "less us about a lower price" on Amazon product pages would be to have a link to another thread with a wiki'd OP where people can post their post their price match requests. What do you think?

I know I'm not the only one sick of the endless repeats of pricematch requests -- doubly so for the ones without the decency to link to both other sale and the corresponding Amazon product. (Esp, since a good segment of requests aren't on Amazon DVG, e.g. Bethesda, Torchlight 2.)

You got a really good Bloomfield to get that OC on air. Is it a D0 stepping, or do you know? Great rig, too.

Is having the 6990+6970 the same as tri-crossfire 6970's, or is it like Nvidia where you only get the least common denominator (so to speak)?
