When talking on the message boards people often refer to Demon's Souls as DeS and Dark Souls as DaS, but that only works in the context of knowing you are already discussing the two games. The asylum is the tutorial level, it's got messages all along the ground informing the player of the various combat mechanics. Demon's souls did it slightly better, because after the tutorial there was a small area in the Nexus hub which had lots of messages on the ground with the more advanced tactics.

The walking dead is a great adventure game, it be linear but that doesnt stop it from being a great experience.

And anyway if you want to consider it a movie, it is 12.49 for a 20 hour movie, well worth it.


20 hours? Took me like 10 and no re-playability. Game is linear as hell and decisions have no impact other than change of few lines. Also puzzles are almost non-existant. Only interesting part is the story, visual and audio. Still worth but people overate it way too much.

I don't like point n clicks, but really liked TWD. if it took you ten hours you probably rushed through.

I usually always have to shoot something or stab something but I really liked the story of the game, voice acting, and dialogue.

Different strokes for different folks:)

Yep, the older EA ones, namely.

EA wants to compete w/ Steam - especially since Valve and EA keep butting heads on things...
i.e. EA tried to buy-out Valve numerous times and Valve refused; EA wants to keep DLC exclusive to them, but Valve's new rule requires all DLC content to be on Steam as well; EA wants to distribute games and things more so through Origin; etc etc.


EA has been trying to shove Origin/EADM down our throat for years.
Most of their new games released SINCE Battlefield 3 flat-out require it.


I dont know Why People Hate Origin. Its a really good stable Client. Totally better than GFWL & UPLAY. as far as i know people used to hate Steam Bigtime. Now People cant live without steam. but Im sure, after another few years , They'll love Origin ;)

My i7 950 is a D0 but takes 1.39v to get to 4Ghz Stable.
It used to work 4.2Ghz stable at this setting but doesn't anymore. But using 4.2Ghz at this voltage still works fine with games/emulation without any issues.


Golden batches of the 920 is the best in overclocking. Your CPU is degrading and that is normal, I am running mine at 4.20GHz currently because 4.25GHz is not very stable in long gaming sessions anymore. After 2 years at 4.25GHz, I think the degradation rate is acceptable :lol:

I don't hate Origin but think the biggest issue with it is that it started the same way that Steam started. EA should've started where Steam ended

Took me 14 hours and I usually take more time than most people in games. 20 hours is probably longer than average.

Yes, Origin is stable.
Yes, Origin is better than Uplay and G4WL.

About Steam - it's the most functional of the programs w/ the most features.

All of them are still forms of DRM.

If it weren't for the community aspect of Steam, I'd like Origin better. Origin had features (like install directory choice) before Steam did, so it's pretty sad, but Steam has and still is learning from Origin.

And let's not even talk about support...

Terraria - $1 (Steam),  X3: Terran Conflict - $2 (Steam)Fable: The Lost Chapters - $2 (Steam)

hehe yeah. but come on,IF you look @ EA now. They are doing lots of things different now.They gave away free games. They are doing lots of Sales recently. They are giving away voucher codes. For me the worst company is Activition. they are too much greedy. at-least with EA we are getting discounts :D

:lol:

I understand. But Origin came to life around 1 .5 years ago. look where they are now.Origin 9.0 update is really Amazing. They told us that they are adding lots of features like Achievements & Social features very soon :D . They also thinking about adding Gifting / Trading system too. I'm sure they'll do it right. Give them some time.
COMPETITION between Steam Vs Origin is Always good for the customer :D
Just like Amazon Vs Steam from deals. Love you Tony. You are taking Down steam like nothing :applause:

Rushed? Not really. Always talked to everyone, always checked everything. I'm not saying I didn't like it or it is a bad game. I loved the story, characters, visual etc. But the games is pretending to be something it is not. Your choices have none or little impact on the story. And the puzzles were like for 5 year old. I still gave the game 7/10 :)

Walking Dead's a visual novel, which TellTale has been moving towards for a while now as it's the main evolution for the adventure genre that wants to focus more on story and characters. It's not really pretending to be anything else but a story with multiple choices. If you're familiar with the genre already you probably won't be impressed in the first place with it, but will enjoy it. If you're not familiar with the genre then either you'll find out it's actually a fantastic one done right and love the game or find that it's not for you. I haven't really seen any VN fans rave over it, but have seen the opposite quite a bit.

Walking Dead was actually the first Telltale game I could get into. TBH the other ones bored me. It's reminiscent of the choose your own adventure books I used to read. Sure they all lead to the same end but it's the stuff in the middle that entertains.

newbie question: can you buy the download code with your amazon gift card in account?

since it's only a "buy and download" button, I don't know if there is a confirmation page after that. thanks..

not really pc gamer but i did check the first page of this thread and there's no faq on this :)

There will be a confirmation page showing any discounts that apply before you are charged, AS LONG AS:
1. Any debit cards you have listed as payment options DO NOT have "PIN-less" transactions enabled and
2.
You DO NOT have any "1-Click Settings" enabled on your account.

You can check both in your account settings. 1-Click has it's own entry, for opt-ing out of PIN-Less debit transaction, you will need to review the cards already added to you account and change the setting for each individual card.

Anyone who wants a 72-Hour guest pass to The Secret World, just PM me your email.

made my first purchase on steam this sale since amazon has been crushing steam (For me at least) so far. Hopefully Tony doesn't make me regret it by putting batman arkham city goty at 2.50 after coupon lol
Also, put me in the camp of people excited for the upcoming alice + Dragon Age packs.
Hopefully we will get prices and dates from Tony soon.
If I recall, last time DA1+Da2 was 10 and alice 7.50, so hopefully alice complete and DA1+DA2 will be in that range again before coupon

Last year there was a recap period at the end of the month. If they do the same again this year, Mass Effect 3/Collection seems a likely candidate to have a repeat appearance.
