I love the Christmas lights pattern fabric. Very festive. ;)

I think I actually need to "play" more. I'm assuming you can unlock more swag.

I've barely proper "played". Judges are friggin squares. I tip I'd give is start with one or two features you like (e.g. hair/color, eyes/eyeliner, or dress/pattern) and then build everything else around that.

wtf, 10.19$ for spec ops?! come on! amazon has that desert sea bundle for 9.99
such nonsense



Clearly Gabe is preparing for a big sale on Jan 6, 2013.

Pretty ignorant when it comes to DRM, but is there any way to get the AC games on Steam w/o Uplay or just get it DRM-free?

You know you have too many games on Steam when you can look at the top 20 best seller list and you own everything besides some of the DLC for some games and a few small games from a bundle lol



Heehee, I know the feeling. Looking over Tony's sale lists or the steam front page everything is quickly divided into have and don't-want. Only big things for me are a good deal on BL2 (not gonna happen this month) and some racers that have never dropped below $25 and are well overdue (e.g. Dirt Showdown, F1 2010/2011/2012).

No. AC2 onwards all require Uplay. Uplay is no longer the always online nightmare it used to be. Now it is one-time verification for most titles. Don't let Uplay stop you from enjoying AC2, ACB, & ACR.

And soon enough if you bought anything 2K in the past year you can get another $5 off to get that bundle for $5.


Strange, I've bought several things from 2K over the past year (including Spec Ops a couple of weeks ago), yet I haven't received any emails about it. Got about 40 emails about getting a discount for EA games, but nothing for 2K or any other publisher that I've bought over the past year.

I think Tony said 2K stuff was prioritized last in terms of backfills since their promotion doesn't start until the 26th and runs until the 31st.

I'm also to the point of buying duplicates from my console collection. You know, as a back up incase my Xbox breaks.

With the caveat that there are still a couple of always online games like Settlers 7 and HAWX 2 I believe.

Also running some games in offline mode may lose you access to certain extra modes and items and such. I know M&M Heroes 6 and Anno 2070 is like this. I think for AC though you just lose Ubi achievments so eh.

Those I suppose you can rack up enough credits with those to get DLC for free so there's that.

But anyway yeah it's not as bad as it used to be. You do need to make sure you do the initial activation though because those UPlay servers have been known to go down some times and if you haven't run it at least once and happen to want to start when their servers are down (it's rare but it happened to me once) then you will be out of luck.

Strange, I've bought several things from 2K over the past year (including Spec Ops a couple of weeks ago), yet I haven't received any emails about it. Got about 40 emails about getting a discount for EA games, but nothing for 2K or any other publisher that I've bought over the past year.



They are working on filling the emails. The 2K ones will probably come last so if not today then some time tomorrow probably. The 2K deal will be on 12/26. The others EA THQ and Ubi should be tomorrow.

There's a lot more chatter about it, along with bitching and moaning :roll:, in the Amazon thread.

Own everything but GTA4 on PC. There was some bundle sale a while ago, but I could never get GTA1 to work.


And while I'm eating dinner and we're derailing the thread with modeling pictures... How neat do you guys keep your Steam library? I'm a little OCD with mine.

In my direct experience for some games and in reading up on it for games I haven't played as far as I can tell it works for most games except Settlers 7 and HAWX 2. There may be other exceptions but I'm pretty sure most of their high profile games can be run in offline mode.

I thought it was ok. I don't like the guns, and some of the combat can be frustrating. I had the most fun when I was just up in people's grills punching their faces.

I can't sort by genre because my inner ADD and OCD collide at the speed of light. So, I just launch everything from Windows and let the clients sit in the background.


Still need to update with my newer purchases...

I use the grid view and replace them with custom images most of the time, or put one together myself. :)

Getting more and more let down with Steam's sale. Amazon's bundle gets you spec ops cheaper and comes with both bioshock games. This is probably the worst Steam sale to date, nothing special like coal or tickets and the discounts have been pretty weak in comparison to Amazon, Gamersgate, GMG, etc.

Hell, I don't know. I'd buy it for a dollar. It's technically sound, just really kind of odd in story and gunplay. Very pretty, though.

For $1 Zeno Clash is worth it. Rough around the edges but a cool concept and nice visuals.
