I was underwhelmed by chivalry. I'd heard lots of good things about it, but after playing for close to half an hour. I have little desire to go back and try it again.


About 20 minutes here, So glad this was a free play weekend. :cry:

I'm not even sure Sims 2 has hit $5. >_>


Hm...

Does anyone know if you can play Sims 3 offline? I have the disc but the code is already registered on Origin to a friend, could I still install it and play it?

Also, Max Payne 3 for $10 after EC credit on Amazon. Robocop'd

I've played over 8hrs of Chivalry lol, got it for $9 during the Winter sale and I can't complain, love the game. *shrug*

Yeah $10 was a good price for it. I actually ended up just getting it and putting it in my inventory, gonna try and see if using the disc works this weekend.

You are aware of the Microsoft Indie Arcade pack and the Microsoft Fable pack, right?


I've heard of them, but have yet to find any details on them, upon Amazon or in the first post of the amazon thread. Links or info please? as it does sound quite nice.

Played Chivalry for about an hour. It's not bad but doesn't really offer any more than what you'd get out of Mount & Blade Warband multiplayer. A little more polish and weapons (including siege) but not that much difference.

Yup. They start on Sunday and run through Saturday. Presumably they won't extend the coupons through to the end of the week, so it would be a good idea to buy before the end of the month if you plan to use a coupon.

Here are the Microsoft offers again for those who might have forgotten:

Offer #1 is an Arcade bundle for $9.99 pre-coupon containing:
Deadlight
Toy Soldiers
Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet
Iron Brigade
Mark of the Ninja

Offer #2 is a Fable bundle for $9.99 pre-coupon containing:
Fable: The Lost Chapters
Fable III
Plus Fable III DLC

Offer #3 is Age of Empires III Complete Collection for $9.99 pre-coupon

Additionally, all games will be available for 75% off. But they wont's be listed individually (besides AoE) on the EC list. So you wont be able to stack the coupons on the games outside of the bundles.


Amazon deals for the weekend.

Gamestop/Impulse has three Dungeons and Dragons packs on sale (two got added today) Yes you'll need both the GameStop App and
Spoiler


Dungeons & Dragons Anthology: The Master Collection - $4.99 - (DRM-FREE) This is the same one that some CAGs missed at $5 on a GG Glitch Night (and was $7 on GG last Feb). These are the GOG'd versions of the classics, since they are the only versions that have been on digital download. N3UROP0D confims DRM-FREE status of the GS pack here.


  • Baldur's Gate 1 & 2 + Expansions [Average Metacritic: 91%] "...reigns supreme over every RPG currently available, and sets new standards for those to come" - PC Gamer
  • Icewind Dale 1 & 2 + Expansions [Average Metacritic 85%] "Once in a while, a game comes along that completely takes over your life. " - IGN
  • Planescape: Torment [Metacritic 91%] "Is it possible for a computer game to have the intellectual heft and emotional impact of a good book while remaining as captivating as a well-paced film? If so, the first candidate may well be Planescape: Torment. . " - New York Times
  • The Temple of Elemental Evil [Metacritic 71%] "A rock-solid RPG that faithfully re-creates a classic adventure." - Gamespy


D&D Anthology: Neverwinter Nights Complete - $7.49 (DRM: NWN1 is DRM-FREE confirmed by N3UROP0D Uncertain, NWN1 has SecuROM but removed in a later patch , NWN2 has SecuROM but unlimited activations? -- This is the best I could ascertain from research, see end of the post)

  • Neverwinter Nights + 3 Expansion Packs [Metacritic 91%]
    “The last role-playing game you'll ever desire, and at last, the fulfillment of a genre“ – Computer Games Magazine
  • Neverwinter Nights 2 + 3 Expansions Packs [Metacritic 82%]
    “The amazing single player installation improves on the original game in nearly every way imaginable - without breaking anything what has gone before. Even for players who have never hurled a 20-sided die in anger, Neverwinter Nights 2 is not to be missed. “ – Games Radar


D&D Ultimate Pack - $11.24 (Both of the packs above, save $1.25) This price was live yesterday as well.


NWN1 Complete has been on GOG for some time.
NWN2 Complete was just released on GOG today. (Thanks MysterD, I checked yesterday. >.> )

More info on the DRM:

Regarding the $11.24 D&D Ultimate Pack on GameStop...

I suspect:
D&D Anthology Master Collection is DRM-FREE (as it is on GG, owned, verified).
D&D NWN Complete:
* NWN Diamond is DRM-FREE (as it is on GOG, though GG.uk lists DRM:Other)
* NWN 2 Platinum is SecuROM (as it is on GG.uk)

NWN 2 Platinum was on steam Nov 2010 - June? 2012. Atari lost distribution rights for it then and Hasbro has taken over distribution. NWN 2 digital distribution seems quite limited atm. NWN 2 is reportedly much patched since it's buggy release.

Why am I tempted to buy this just for NWN 2 Platinum? (own the rest) :wall:

Looking a bit more I've found further evidence from the physical versions that:
NWN used to have SecuROM but it was removed in a later patch.
NWN 2 has/had (removed?) SecuROM but there is no activation limit (at least under Atari).

Ossian Studios is pleased to announce that there is no longer a 3-activation limit on NWN2: Mysteries of Westgate. The activation limit has been removed by Atari after Ossian highlighted to them how many fans were not happy with it. You can now install MoW as many times as you like on your computer. Here are some quick facts about this change:
Q: Do I still need to activate MoW to play?
A: Yes. The DRM activation limit has been removed but you still need to activate MoW online for each new installation on your computer. After the one-time activation for each installation, you don’t need an Internet connection to play. Activation is necessary to prevent serial numbers from being posted to the web where hundreds or thousands of people can access it.
Q: So, I don’t have to worry about changing my hardware and not being able to re-activate MoW?
A: No. You can change the hardware configuration or operating system on your computer as often as you like and can re-activate MoW as many times as you like.
Q: Is it okay if I install the game on more than one of my computers?
A: Yes, that’s fine.
Q: Are the MoW resources still encrypted?
A: Yes, the MoW resource files are still encrypted. However, we have provided most of this content for free from the Mysteries of Westgate page on the NWVault:

Suddenly, SquareEnix weekend. Today's deal is Tomb Raiders at 75% off. Still disappointed that there's no classics pack of 1-6 and that they'd cost the same price a la carte as buying the pack.

It's strange, I saw that quantum conundrum was $0.01 in the specials section on the steam front page, and it shows up that way when I search for it.

But when you go to the actual page it shows up as $7.49.

Ashes, you are right, the version of NWN Diamond on Gamestop is the DRM-free GoG version. All the other games, except NWN2, are as well.

The fact that NWN2 is on GoG now though, makes me wish I'd waited. Seriously, I'd say pass on the GS deal and wait for the next big GoG sale. It's worth it for the extras and not being leashed to the GS app (or GS itself for that matter.)

Cool! Thanks for the NWN1 DRM-FREE confirmation. Sorry I saw nothing that hinted that GOG was working on getting NWN2 yesterday. I think think it is a good deal. I know some CAGs lament missing the Master Collection @ $5.

im getting -0.01. That would be amazing if they credited your steam wallet a penny :-P I could just imagine the chaos of people trying to buy 100 copies just to get a 1$ then try to sell each copy...

The update adds timestamps for all activities, removes the /me functionality from chat, adds a log of recently sent messages when you open a chat box, and allows sending of messages to friends who are offline. Maybe some other functions, but these are what I've noticed.

One thing to note about the Squenix sale: If you pre-order the new Tomb Raider, you get 25% off the Squenix pack, bringing it to a very solid $60. In other words, if you've pre-ordered it, we expect you to help everyone else out :lol:

People still don't have this? They were selling HR for like $5 during the Winter sale. And while the original is better than HR, Invisible War is horrible so I'd pass unless a bundle price is cheaper than buying the other two solo.
