66%? Typical Deep Silver. No thank you.

I'm also taking reservations for my Indie Gala August group buy! Please PM me if you're interested. :)

How does WitN compare with the other King's Bounty games? I played a bit of Armored Princess and enjoyed it, but I have the first three games and I haven't really touched Crossworlds or the other one. Is WitN a better experience than the other three, or should I pass since I haven't even gone through them?

It is more of the same. Instead of a dragon you summon Valkyries and you can fly on the map after a little bit. I like it, but I am a pretty big fan of the series.

I don't do steamgifts myself, so I was hoping for someone else to answer. There is a CAG group on steam, so I understand you can limit giveaways to that. However I've seen complaints that it is an open group and there are a sizable number of non-CAGs there.


Yeah it's big but if you limit it to the group and only advertise the giveaway in this thread then there is usually only about 50 or so entries.

I've been on fire with steamgifts the last week or so. I've won 3 of them.

I can't complain, though. That game seems really neat.

You're not missing much. The DLC is pretty lackluster for that game but I do like the base game itself. Enough that I imported the CE from Germany in a carboard pirate chest with a gnome figurine and all that. :-P

Wait aero themes really can affect my fps?



You could take my word for it (below) or test it yourself.

Win7 using a Basic (non-Aero) theme bought me 10+FPS in Sleeping Dogs.

^_^ I remember your in-thread review of it and the DLC. I've waited this long, I figure I'll wait for the complete bundle (just because). Also I really should get around to playing Risen 1 (thankfully I have it on steam -- didn't depend on VOID). I am thinking that my next game will be Saints Row 2 -- I'm kinda in the mood for something GTAish and I want to play that while my computer is still clocked @ 3.2 GHz.

I also found my free (ad-supported?) version of FarCry from Sept 2007 =D

Insta-buy the new groupees bundle.

Still playing king's bounty the legend (doing every quest) ... But is on my top list. I'm a big fan. I only stopped playing because I wanted to play other games on my backlog. And more of the same, in the king's bounty universe, is a good thing :)

Also, had my eyes on lucius since I saw it on steam. I know it has bad reviews, but still want to try it.

Not as sweet as steams previous deal but I bought CK2 redeemable steam key from paradox's webstore for $18 two days ago.

[quote name='asheskitty']Your GTX 650 has very similar performance to my GTX 260. No clue about Win8, but in Win7 using a Basic (non-Aero) theme bought me 10+FPS in Sleeping Dogs. Below is the tweak guide I used, as well as my benchmark. Try my settings on the benchmark and see what you get.

[quote name='Junpei']Thanks, I saw that you already posted your benchmark some messages ago, but it flew over my head somehow... I'll try that once I get home :)[quote name='squijee']Wait aero themes really can affect my fps?[/QUOTE]

Here are my results, oddly the average fps stays relatively the same...

With Aero, V-Sync On:

With Aero, V-Sync off:

Without Aero, V-Sync On:

As you can see, there is a marked improvement with Aero turned off, but in my case, only when V-Sync is turned off.

That seems so bizzare to me. I can't imagine why NoAero + VSync has less average FPS than Aero+VSync.

Personally, I will probably jump at the sound of skeleton hooves and distant screaming for the rest of my life.

I think my wallet made a shrieking sound and scurried off into a dark corner, once I pulled up the Steam page.

I finished Sleeping Dogs last night and I'm pleased to say it was pretty much as good as people say it was. The setting is fantastic, the combat is cool, the story is varied and unpredictable enough, and the side-mission/collectables stuff is really rather addictive. I got it on a glitched GMG deal over the Xmas sale and I'm more than happy with the purchase. Yes, the missions get a little repetitive in the middle, but overall it's an excellent game. There's plenty of copies available in the Steam trade thread for about $10 and it's well worth it, in my opinion.

Spoiler


I'm planning on playing through Deadlight now. This isn't what I expected. I assumed it was a side-scrolling shooty thingy. Doesn't seem that straight-forward. I'm liking it though, very moody.

No need to look on the trade forums for Sleeping Dogs for $10; STEAM still has it for that price for another 2 hours. Go get it while it's still on sale peeps!!!

I just confirmed my previous results by running them again, I also did a run with Windows Classic Vs. Windows 7 Themes. Both non-Aero, but they both put up the same numbers, so it's definitely Aero.
