Steam uses the GOG versions of those games, so they should be the same. I don't have them on Steam though, so I can't comment further.

The latter is slightly more literary.

Thinking of Buying the Deus Ex collection, but only really interested in Deus Ex:HR, should I Just buy the solo game or are the DLC's worth getting as well?

Just get the solo game, the bonus missions and missing link don't really add much at all (missing link especially is pretty boring)

Missing Link is good for its 'boss fight' which is better than the outsourced boss fights in the original game. That said, if they're still selling it for $3.75 it isn't really worth it compared to the $5 for the base game. I'd also recommend the original Deus Ex for $2.50 -- it's better than HR.

Agreed on SD DLC. Skip it all. I loved the game and those aren't worth it.

Missing Link is good for its 'boss fight' which is better than the outsourced boss fights in the original game. That said, if they're still selling it for $3.75 it isn't really worth it compared to the $5 for the base game. I'd also recommend the original Deus Ex for $2.50 -- it's better than HR.


I thought the bosses in HR were great fun. ML's boss is just a room of guards but you can't wait to kill that asshole.

Personally I think all the HR DLC is worth it. More toys to dick around with but you could easily go without it. Missing Link is a standalone single "dungeon" if you will. It's a tight experience and pretty replayable.

I got it for $20 back in mid-december from Amazon and loved it. Definitely recommend it at that price.

I'm glad to see the Tomb Raider preorders shoot up this weekend. I preordered it back around Christmas time to get Guardian of Light with it since I never finished the XBLA version, and now it looks like we'll at least unlock Tier 2 for some free DLC.

This is actually one of the better deals that Steam has had in a long while. I've never played a Hitman game though - would anyone recommend I start with this one? Or should I start with one of the previous games. I own Blood Money - is that one any good?

I've only ever played Blood Money but loved it, plus there is a cash type upgrade system which I always enjoy in games for that light rpgish feel.

Plus lots of varied locations and settings so easily worth a play through.

Any opinions on GOG Tomb Raider 1/2/3 versus Steam Tome Raider 1/2/3?

When did Steam start selling E-books?

I find it difficult to believe that they wouldn't be able to tell the difference in weight distribution between a television and a box of rocks when lifting it.

You underestimate the human capacity for dumbassery.

After beating the game, I came to the conclusion that none of the DLC I purchased was worthwhile. There are costume and car unlocks mostly, but I found that it took away a bit from the experience of being able to purchase my own stuff. Also, I started the game out on level 5 for Triad, Police, and Face XP, so I was already fully upgraded halfway through the game.

Nightmare in North Point sucked...not worth wasting money and 90 minutes for. I didn't buy Zodiac Tournament (have no plans to either).

crap, is there a way to disable the Sleeping Dogs DLC? I stupidly bought it all when it was 91% off.

Delete these from the game directory. It's all the unlock/money/XP DLC:

1E6323E1.dat - Gold Top Dog
576E446C.dat - Silver Top Dog
E58008F5.dat - Red Envelope Pack

Play Blood Money. Is the best game in the series by far... I haven't played Absolution yet... but after watching some videos and reading some reviews it seems is FAR from Blood Money.

Hitman BM is AWESOME. You can accomplish your objective on so many ways. Just try it. By the time you finish the game, Absolution will be cheaper.

I'm waiting for absolution to reach $5. Not in a hurry to play it. I'm more worried about X-Com... I'm a die hard fan and still waiting for it to reach a lower price. Is so hard to resist!

Well, here is the only way to run Doom Rails on Windows 8 right now (can only run outside of Steam):

Step 1: Get your key from Steam and copy it or write it down somewhere. Note: You need to have Doom Rails installed via Steam or the DL started on the game before the view key option is available when you right click it.

Step 2: DL the Doom Rails installer here:


http://www.fileplane...Doom-Rails-Demo



Step 3: Run the installer as Administrator (it is possible you may need to run as Windows 7 Compability too).

Step 4: If Windows Defender or your antivirus gives you a trojan warning it is a false positive. Ignore it if you can, otherwise you will need to disable it, uninstall, and install again.

Step 5: Once installed, run the Doom Rails exe as admin (and possibly as Windows 7 Compability). If you had to disable your antivirus you have to keep it disabled to run the game.

Step 6: Enter your key to activate the game. ONLY 5 ACTIVATIONS!!!!!

Step 7: Decide if it is worth it for you!

Step 8: Play?

Lots of trouble, not sure if I want to disable Windows Defender every time. Trying to find away to have it ignore the false positive and then I might keep the game installed.

I haven't played Blood Money but I very much enjoyed Absolution. It's the only stealth game where I actually felt inspired to play it right rather than machine gunning everyone in the face (it's 'stealth' if I shoot their eyes out, right?). To the point where I'd restart a level if someone saw me rather than take the small point hit.

From what I've read the disguise system is considerably different than the previous games making this game more traditionally stealth based and most complaints are because you spend your time hiding behind pillars and in laundry bins rather than walking around dressed as a clown or plumber.
