Not if you get the special edition. It's much much much easier than the original DMC3. I raced through DMC3 so I could lead right into DMC4, and oops, it's a prequel. It's still definitely worth playing.


More easier? That can't be right - Try Dante must die difficulty then come back to me :)

Like in the throne room, amirite?


Never really cared for 'em or their cow motif.


Spoiler


I see what both of you did there.

Not sure if posted here but looks like Skyrim's Dragonborn DLC is finally hitting PC on Feb 5th.


It's about time. I don't even know what it entails, nor will I buy it without a heavy discount, but it just feels like it's been forever since the XBox exclusive release.

Bought Lego LOTR. I really did not want to buy it yet but my fucking friend was saying how he likes it and it was $8.16 on GMG. I will get to it sometime.


I grabbed this, too, for my wife. Had a $2 referral credit, so $6.16 out of pocket. From what I've seen, the level of humor in the LEGO Popular Franchise series of games has been top-notch, and she's a LotR fan. Looking forward to co-op play.

I have too big of a backlog. Can you guys help a fellow CAG out by deciding which game I should play?

http://steamcommunit...ShufflinZombie/

Portal 1 is probably about 3-4 hours
Spec OPs the Line is 5-7 depending on what difficulty and if you scour for all the intel items collectibles, I notice you started it, keep with it, it gets amazing at the 2 hour mark or so.
Just Cause 2 is fairly long but hella fun (18-20 hours for main story missions, 80+ hours to get all the collectables and free all the villages/towns/cities.

I'd say go with one of those.

Wasn't DMC 3 one of the most difficult games of all times? I only played DMC 2 back then (don't know if a bad game, only played an hour or so and was VERY boring)... and just bought DMC 4 from GMG... that one is GREAT. I should try DMC 3 after ;)

Original DMC3 was hard, DMC3: SE made things a lot easier/less tedious. Original DMC3 was kinda Demon's Souls hard, difficult to get going but once you get past the first boss and get your second weapon the difficulty curve starts to ramp down.

Anybody know how to create an appmanifest file? I forgot mine on another computer, and now my game wants to redownload.

I might just fork over 20$ for Sacred 2 Gold.

And BTW, Soldak is a treasure trove of goodies. I'm interested in a game called Drox Operative. and then Din's Curse popped up to. Cool developer.

The Special Edition had its difficulty levels lowered. Easy Mode in DMC3 is Normal Mode in DMC3:SE, etc., etc. Hard Mode is "Very Hard Mode". So yes, DMC:SE is easier than DMC3. I'd imagine since he's concerned with the game being difficult, he be won't playing on the hardest difficulty level.

Wait, people finish Just Cause 2? I assumed everyone played about four missions and then started just lashing cars to helicopters and going on fire truck rampages through the city.

Does anyone know when Terraria could have another price drop? I was going to buy it but a friend of mine told me that it was $5 not so long ago and it even hit $2.50 as well but now it costs $10 and I am not sure if it is worth the $10. Sorry if this is the wrong thread to ask ):

I'd definitely throw some palate cleansers in the mix there. 7 third person shooter/action games in a row and you'll never want to play one again.

It's not on sale right now, so it's $10. Steam puts things on sale all the time (every day, one game goes on sale) so the next time it's on sale it'll be either 50% or 75% off, possibly more. I would say that if you can wait, try to wait until then.

I'll also say that I've played it almost 90 hours, so even at $10 it's a pretty good deal.

Not saying it's a bad deal, but Gametap isn't what it used to be.


Gametap currently holds an 'F' rating—the most negative rating available—from the Better Business Bureau of Metro Atlanta.[11]

I have nearly 170 hours in the game thanks to playing it forever solo and then starting anew in co-op with my wife. It's an easy way to lose an entire weekend with a "one more turn" ("one more mining run") mentality.

The recent console release added content. If you're willing to go full price, you might consider getting it on PSN or XBL for that reason. I haven't heard of any plans to add the new stuff to the PC version. That said, if that were done, it's quite likely it would go on sale at that time as a promotion.

Thanks for the info guys (: I didn't know that about the steam prices deals. I will probably wait a little for, hopefully, a 50 off discount (: By the way, Is there an official release date for the console version already? I read March but I am not sure :/

Oh, you're right. I thought the console releases for Terraria had already occurred. Looks like they're saying "as early as the end of February" now.

But I agree with the decision to wait.

Stealth games are awesome. Hiding from The Man, skulking in shadows, the thrill of infiltration. But why do they have to be so... slow? That was the question that spawned Stealth Bastard, the fast-paced, nail-biting antidote to tippy-toed sneaking simulators that the world had so desperately been craving.

What game?


The Secret World. I just grabbed the main "The Secret World" folder and forgot the appmanifest file.

Huh. Seems I got it to work. I grabbed another appmanifest file, changed appd numbers, install folder, changed state flags to 4 and zeored other fields like download/install size. Deleted the appupdatestats.blob, and now it shows as installed. Just need to copy over the files. Sinister it worked.


Addictive games like Terraria: Minecraft, The Sims 3, New Vegas, X2 even though i have to still play it. I will find more!
I'd say that Terraria is basically a metroidvania with some awesome Diablo like qualities. cool link on metroidvanias: http://www.411mania....vania-Games.htm

A civilized person would cleanse their pallet with sorbet between courses. In the states they often refer to it as intermezzo (from Italian). Maybe my expectations were too high for a zombie. ^_~

I dream in yellow comic sans.

It rubs the lotion on it's skin or else it gets Bad Rats again.

Since Devil May Cry 3 (Original Version) is on Steam, I guess this qualifies as in-topic discussion. The original DMC3 had Japan's "Hard Mode" set as the International's "Medium." Thus, it was recommended by many, at the time, to die enough times to trigger the option to downgrade the difficulty. I'm guessing that the Special Edition fixed that, having the actual difficulties coincide with their in-game designations.

As enjoyable as I found DMC3, I still regard the first game as the best. That's my opinion, though.

I like to play some of the older ones first. That way I'm not disappointed by graphics/gameplay. Try Portal, Half-Life Series, Batman AA.
