I got the ME1 to work but it wasn't through the client but a different link at ea.com

I think it was the apply entitlement one IIRC.


I heard that you could do something like that. But I never use Origin, so I haven't been sufficiently motivated to make the extra effort to look into it.

It should still be on sale at GMG plus you can use the 30% coupon too.


I checked GMG after posting and it is still on sale and the coupon stacks, now I have to decide if I don't want to buy it out of principle.

With 2 minutes left on the flock, I buckled and grabbed 3DMark11.

Looks like I have some serious OC-ing work to do.

K, thanks. Think I'll pass. Considering I haven't played much of Civ 5 despite owning it for a long time, don't think I can justify purchasing 2 packs the same day and I feel I got the more important one with G&K since it changes actual mechanics.



yeah i get that. i have put in over 200 hours to civ 5 base game and feel like i barely scratched the surface(i think i am at about 20% or maybe 30% complete of the steam achievements)

edit 262 hours and 32%. but some of those achievements like 'win a game on settler difficulty' just seem like a waste of time. i guess i could try it just to see if i could win in 10 turns or less

And "Civ in Space" Alpha Centauri is $3 on GOG (and they finally added the expansion).


If you want another "Civ in Space" you can get Galactic Civilizations, I have only played II. And it is still on its daily sale too. Quite fun although watching the battles play out is sooooooo boring.

That sounds sensible. G&K already includes a bunch of new Civs so you should have more than enough variety for now.

eh, i would say it is a 'maybe'. It doesnt just add those civs as playable, it adds them to the game as enemy civs as well.

I think it adds more world wonders. I like wonders so i was all over that. actually i think you have to buy korea civ separate and also the ancient wonders pack(again, i like to go for the wonders).

just checked, this is what is included in the goty content
All 4 Cradle of Civilization Map Packs (Mediterranean, Asia, Americas, Mesopotamia)
Civilization Pack: Babylon (Nebuchadnezzar II)
Double Civilization and Scenario Pack: Spain and Inca
Civilization and Scenario Pack: Polynesia
Civilization and Scenario Pack: Denmark - The Vikings
Explorer’s Map Pack
Official Digital Soundtrack (Soundtrack not available on the Mac)

to get everything, you would have to get that, then get this
http://store.steampo....com/app/99614/
that is the ancient wonders+ korea civ

+
gods and kings(get it from greenman gamer for 3 bucks,i paid $7.50 on black friday from amazon, but that included a $5 coupon on a future purchase)


thanks for pointing this out
so I got the $19.99 pack from amazon
if I get the korea and wonders of the ancient world combo for $1.86, i will have everything for the game?

Your talking about a different mod. The author says to install the 2K version on top of the official free HD texture pack from Bethesda to fill it out. The 2k version of Skyrim Realistic Overhaul weighs in at 5.6 gigs. Your confusing mods. 2k references the size of the texture, but there is also a mod that uses "2k" in name (several, actually).

EDIT: Link to what Motoki referenced above:
S.T.E.P. Project Wiki
S.T.E.P. at nexus

I'm talking about the currently available 2K Textures mods here, not confusing any mods. (You could call it "Skyrim HD" too, but no one seems to call it that.)

I was under the impression that the Realistic Overhaul mod wasn't around anymore, and I've never heard anyone call it the "2K Textures" mod, like the other one is called.

:lol:

Refusing a deal out of spite!

FWIW GMG said the DMC4 sale lasts until the new DMC game comes out but the 30% discount is ending soon, though they will probably have another sooner or later.

As with anything, it's around if you look hard enough.

But anyway I follow the (old) STEP process and use 2K AND Realistic Overhaul and others too.

yep. if i am thinking correctly, korea is actually a good civ to play for doing the victory via city states because of the bonuses you get to city states.

ive only played gods and kings a little and already it feels like a whole new game, more like civ 5.5 or civ 6 because they added faith.(and new civs and units and buildings)

Right, your talking about a different mod than I am, and I started this whole thing by posting links to it to prove that you could still get it. From the post I read, many people still consider it the best over-all graphics mod for SkyRim (Realistic Overhaul w/2k textures).

And "Civ in Space" Alpha Centauri is $3 on GOG (and they finally added the expansion).

I'm waiting til the last day of the GOG sale (Jan 3rd) to pick it up in case it drops further. wishlisted for now.

Bought Civ 3 during the last sale. It is the only Civ game I have played. Took a bit to figure everything out, but I've put 38 hours into it an haven't finished a playthrough yet. Tons of fun. I'm slowly capturing the entire map. Probably the best dollar I've ever spent.

The game was a buggy, practically unplayable mess when it was released. I bought it on Day One, played maybe three hours of it and quit in disgust. After the long wait from Civ II devotees and in the era before easy game patching (or automatic patches), I think its reputation was crippled from the very start and never recovered.

is far cry 1 and 2 worth it?
Going to wait on far cry 3. should be at least 30$ again at least by the summer sale.
Scimmed a few pages back. If your thinking about getting Mount and Blade I would 100% recommend war band.
The first one you really dont need bc war band is better in every way.
Napoleonic wars is Multiplier only but a fantastic one at that.
Fire and Steel is warband with guns... the guns are 100% OP
