Yep. Disc is the only way. I doubt we'll ever see a GoD version by this point, much to my lament and what sparked this whole conversation to begin with, lol.

Lemme know what your impressions are.



Demo is in the queue and I've found some reasonable priced phyiscal copies of the disc online in the event I like the dem.
Thanks!

Going to throw my hat in the ring on Culdcept Saga as well. I played the demo and just had to get the full game after playing the demo several times. Then I brought the game over a friend's house and was shocked when they all got so caught up in it that they didn't want to play the usual Halo and Call of Duty that the get togethers were about. At least two of them picked the game up as well after.

Really an interesting game, hope you enjoy it!

Thanks guys...any tips for a beginner at Culdcept Saga?
I read some reviews already and it sounds like there is quite steep learning curve. Any suggestions to ease curve?

Perhaps you can PM me to avoid hijacking this thread?

Why is Metro showing up as 19.99 now? I was going to get it, but I guess I'll settle for Saints Row.

Just published my Happy Wars review at Co-Optimus. It focuses on the multiplayer aspects and not the PDLC, which I've covered in a previous article. Feedback is greatly appreciated. :)

that is some BS about Metro 2033. Thought the sale is until the 22nd.

I checked on Twitter and someone asked @XboxSupport about it and they said:

@DanielPeirce We're currently looking into this. Thanks for being patient. =) ^KC

There is no such thing! The only genre there's too much of is FPS games on consoles, and puzzle games on mobile phones. :P


Especially physics puzzlers. Yuck!

Nicely done. I've been intending to get around to trying this out sometime soon and your review made me bump it up on my gaming priorities list a bit. I appreciate the in-depth focus on the class abilities so I have some idea of who to pick and what to do.

I was turned off almost instantly from Fat Princess for some reason so I'm hoping this can draw me in a bit more. Either way, FREE! AND ACHIEVEMENTS! So why not?

Home Run Stars comes out 10/26. Since it's a Kinect game that means I will be snagging it.
Shouldn't it be "Homerun" though?

Glad I waited for Wreckateer. It's fun but not 10.00 fun. This is the first year I didn't buy all the SOA games, so I hope Deadlight and Dust go on sale next.

Correct me if I'm wrong guys, but wasn't last years Shocktober sales really crappy? I want to say that a lot of things on that list weren't actually on sale. They amassed a big pile of Halloween/Scary content and advertised it all, but only about 1/5 of those games actually got a discount. The rest were just advertised at full price.

I'm not 100% sure on this, but I think that's what happened. There was lots of disappointment because a lot of us were waiting for the advertised content's prices to drop, and they never did.

Crap, you are right! I tried to find a separate thread here on CAG about the Shocktober sales when I made my previous post but had no luck. However, I am sure we discussed it in here. I do remember it being a big letdown now. Everyone keep you expectations low and hopefully they will actually put the stuff on sale that they advertise.

I am interested in it for the Kinect functionality and how it is going to work with SmartGlass.

Hey Gamers-
need your help and insight on a few things with the Metro 2033 download for 800MSP / $9.99. I've read from different people here that there are OTHER downloadable games that people have gotten (either here in the U.S. or in other countries), where there is a difference from the downloadable version and the actual disc version. (Maybe it has something to do with a country restricting certain content, etc ??) For those that have downloaded this game and perhaps played through it, is the 4.9GB the FULL, COMPLETE version with no exclusion of content ?

Also could I ask for your thoughts / reviews of the add-on "Ranger pack" for 240MSP ? Is it REALLY worth considering this additional purchase for the game ?

As much as I'd really LOVE to have the physical disc copy of Metro 2033, and save hard drive space, like most people, trying to find a copy even close to $10 is like "trying to find a needle in a haystack."

As always, thanks for everyone's comments and help in advance.

I don't know what difference is between different versions of the game selling for either 800 or 6XX but either way, Metro for $10 is worth it. As already noted, finding a used physical copy for $15 is alone is a hapless endeavor

It's a bad game. VF2 was good back then but with VF5 out i don't see why i'd play it, at least not for ten dollars. All they need to release is fighters megamix but they keep rehashing these games instead. most of these came out on ps2. hopefully they will port sega rally then as that got put out on ps2 as well and would be nice to play online.

SR2 expansions? Worth it?

I haven't read anything about missing content but I did play Metro off of a disc and (like others) feel that the sale price is an excellent one. Half the game would need to be missing for it to not be worth $10. If you're turned off by an atmospheric, deliberate FPS than it might not be for you but even then it would be hard to not to not get your money's worth. It's not a perfect title by any means but its faults are a lot easier to handle at such a good price. I paid 2.5-3 times this amount back when I obtained it and didn't regret it then. As I have not played the Ranger DLC I have no opinion on it. Hope this helps your decision.

I hadn't heard of it either but it looks like shart!
SR2 - general consensus (here and reviews) is no.

prob to do with the region you are in.

for example metro is 800 msp but in australia it is 900 msp as it is not $9.99 like in america but $14 or something

This, it's decent at $5, it's a Kinect game that basically works.
