so do you need an origin account to play mass effect 2? or just for dlc?


Mass Effect 2 came out before Origin; you don't need Origin but you can register the key if you want. And to my knowledge, all ME DLC is only available through the fucking Bioware store. I took a quick look at Origin just in case but it seems that that's still the case.

When is the next big sale? I am tempted by Skyrim, but having difficulty with it having been out a year already.


Just wait for the next sale - with the modding progress slowing down (and with one of the major mods now unavailable) you should just wait for the next sale.

No, it's not bad at all. If it weren't for the fact that I'd end up with Bad Rats & World Basketball Manager 2010, I probably would have bought it already.

69 games for $30. Of course, most of them are kind of mediocre. But there are enough gems in there to make it worthwhile.

EDIT: On second thought, I'm not sure I'd want all those games that I'd never play cluttering up my library.


Well there's someone selling the pack in the trading forum for only $20, so I figured I might jump on that. There are some duplicates in there, but I think most of them will be new to me. Out of the entire 69 game lot, I own about 10 of the games and the rest I'm worried will show up in a bundle. But like you said, there are some gems in there. There's a lot of garbage, but the $20 price tag is what's grabbing my attention.

Torchlight II is good but if you don't want the top down perspective I hear Divinity II is also a good choice.

I still need to play both of them :lol:. Yep in the backlog.

I think it'll never reach it's lowest price of $0.10 again. CAG SD There are three price trackers in my sig.


Yeah, I downloaded GFWL on my new pc to play Dead Rising 2 a few days ago. Out of curiosity I checked my downloaded games and remembered that I got AoE III and Deus Ex GOTY for pretty cheap prices. I also have Viva Pinata for some reason.

For anyone considering DMC3... (For the record, the PC port of DMC4 has always been great.) DMC3+4 bundle $10 on flash sale

I have it both on PS2 and PC. Regarding the PC port...

It seems to run fine on Win7-64bit. The PC port's performance was pretty bad back in the day. I just ran through the first mission and Fraps reported constant 60 FPS on my four year old Phenom II X3 720 BE (@ 3.2 GHz) and GTX 260. Without modding, it is 3:4 with resolutions up to 1600x1200. It looks a bit sharper than the PS2 version (simply due to rendering at higher rez). Graphics and textures look the same as on PS2.

I stronly recommend that you have a DirectInput compatible controller (e.g. RumblePad 2, F310/F510/F710), for this and any other games on PC that predated the Xbox 360. If you do, it will work flawlessly.

You can use an Xinput (360 controller, F310/F510/F710) controller but by default the sticks will be swapped. Simply adding a few lines to the INI fixed that. However LT and RT do not seem to work (not surprising, in Xinput LT & RT are mapped to the positive and negative halves of a single axis -- not separate buttons like in DirectInput. This seems to render LT & RT unusable. I do recall some software for backward compatability for 360 controllers, but I've never tried it. Reportedly you can just map two of your buttons to keyboard keys as a workaround.

I dream in yellow comic sans.

quote to reveal grimrock? yes? :)
I'll bite on Jagged Alliance Crossfire even if its awful. Probably pick up AssCreed 1 and/or 2 if it comes back. Shoulda got it.
I'm probably gonna wait for Far Cry 3 to go a bit cheaper. I can't buy it with a 10-15$ Steam surcharge, knowing well that Uplay copies go frequently for 20$ less. What a bummer. This game SHOULD have cost 10$ since it was an ATI pack in, but due to the existence of UPlay it wasn't.
Probably gonna get Anno 2070 base, even if it is totally and completely wrong on so many different levels. UHG. NO. STOP.
Anybody recommend a different better purchase. I really don't want to support Ubisoft practices. Oh no I just remembered its an online single player game.

I was disappointed last year when I grabbed Divinity II & then realized it had no controller support. Yeah, yeah, some ppl would only play PC games w/ a mouse & keyboard, but the controller is how I prefer to play with rare exception. And since the game was ported to the 360, there's no reason that control option should be absent from the PC version.

I used a gta san andreas specific controller app to get fully customized controlls. I have a link around somewhere and will post it later.

I was going to post about this, it's called SAAC and I think it requires you to find a version 1.0 exe of the game and pop it into your game folder along with the app. Sorry if that was already mentioned, I don't have time to read the last 6 pages of the thread right now.

What mod went missing?


Skyrim Realistic Overhaul

It changed so many textures, and with it gone (Modding drama, think of it like Steam drama but 100x worse) the game has suddenly become a lot more bland. Doesn't help that the community is burned out (That mesh bug really turned off modders to Skyrim). The next DLC better be another Morrowind to bring back the modders...

It's mostly multiplayer stuff. There's an additional single-player mission as well but if you're not planning on playing MP, I'd have a hard time saying one extra mission is worth another 20%.


I was wondering too. Thanks.

I was going to use Amazon but went with this for $27. 83 with the code in cart and has a dlc.

Nexus seems to kick a lot of the mods and modders off their site [I know that the author THIRTEENORANGES was kicked off for having a 2nd account]. Good thing some of them are moving over to Workshop.

Ahem,

HTTP download of both the 1k and 2K version w/ Dawnguard textures (1.6 Update)
Torrent with 2k textures (same as above but highly compressed and spit into parts)

1.6 was the last version produced. Enjoy. Oh, and here are some pics:

I suggest if you have any interest in SkyRim at all, you grab this mob before it does become extinct.

Shady, selling scanned keys. For CAGs that prefer dealing with legitimate sellers, I'd suggest avoiding these guys.

If the 'cycles' are predictable Serious Sam will end up as a daily sale overlapping into January. If it ends up on the EC you're looking at $1 for Serious Sam 3. I totally overpaid by $3.50!

I have a dillema, I wanted a resource/management game....so I purchased the 2k collection from Amazon today ($20 for Civ IV GOTY, CIV V, and Civ 5 Kings & Gods). I never played any Civilization game since part 2 (long time ago, at least 15 years). I always had fond memories of Age of Empires II when in middle school, I really loved that game.

I start up Civ V, and immediatly feel overwelmed. Im not sure why though, maybe how modern games (COD, Halo, Final Fantasy XIII) everything is fast paced, based on reflexes rather then thinking). I played Civ V for around 3 hours straight, and felt like I got nowhere at all, no sense of accomplishment. I had 3 military units total after 1 hour, and after 2 hours I only had 2 buildings researched. After the 3rd hour I gave up, all the CPU civalizations had 3-4 citys each and I only had two, but CPU refused to make a move on my territory.

I see that Age of Empires III Complete Collection is on sale at steam for $10. I never played AoE III, I swore I thought MS made Age of Empires III Free to play online, or am I mistaken?

Can you guys answer these questions, regarding Civ 5 and Age of Empires III.

1. Age of Empires III easier to understand? less complex at least?

2. AoE III quicker then Civ V? (momentum and advancing wise)

3. I tend to ignore foriegn policy in Civ V, but of course get detroyed because of that,, is AoE III more forgiving in that aspect?


Also I see Mount & Blade Collection is on sale also, I enjoy War of Roses and Medeval Chivalry, are they similar to that? Should I purchase the whole Collection or just pick the best one?

That's a heavy assumption to think a texture patch will be broken by a future update. You're recommending him to wait, I'm recommending he download the mod just in case, whether he waits or not. That way he has it either way. Buy or don't buy, makes no difference to me. You told him a mod was unavailable, I was educating him otherwise.
