Wow, a new thread pops up just after I go to bed and it's already 6 pages full.

I'm just gonna assume that it's mostly people saying stuff like "new thread smell" and that it's not worthwhile going back to read through.


It is pretty much everyone marking their territory and making the thread feel lived-in.

Bethesda stopped in and gave away a bunch of keys for Skyrim and Dishonored and dropped some pretty in-depth details about the future of those franchises.

Anyone have opinions on Endless Space? It's on my hit-list this sale, but I'm still on the fence about it. Thoughts?

I already have both Rage and Last Remnant but if someone wanted to they could buy two Rages and two Last Remnants from GG, get one of the last Remnants free $3.75.

If you use IAMANELDERGEEK on blue coins and then again on the games you can get all four for $13.30 or $12.35 if you happen to have 540 blue coins (about 54 cents worth) in your account.

I thought Rhode Island and Vermont were different states.



Well I'll be. So they are.

I still reserve the right to blame Vermont for my gaming disappointments.

Won't Amalur Complete Collection go on sale on Amazon in a few days, though? I recall reading that on the Amazon PCDD thread...


I've been playing this game on Origin and it runs really smooth. The game play and graphics are really good, but the story and main character feel empty. It's a tired story and the main character is bland. It might have to do with she doesn't have a voice. That didn't bother me in DA, but for some reason in this game it does. Despite it's flaws I really enjoy it. I only wish I had more time to play it- work and kids.

It occurs to me that we are just two days from when the Winter Sale is due to [allegedly] begin. Not to mention the fact that there is, supposedly, a new Humble Bundle due out by the end of the year.

Shoite, I think I'm excited.

Also Indie Royale, if they know what's good for them, should drop any second now. Otherwise they will get Steamrolled by the Steam sale. is up.

I grabbed it when I saw $4 before even looking at what it was because I almost never can catch that damned thing at $4. :-P

Surprisingly, I didn't have anything in this bundle because I passed on the Serious Sam games 800 million times that they've been on sale and in bundles.

I was going to buy 4 copies of RAGE, but then that annoying 2 copies limit reared its head. :roll:

If anyone is actually interested in splitting 4 copies of RAGE (works out to $3.2/copy), I'll contact GG support to see if I can get that limit increased.

I own half of the games, and got Colour Blind free in the developer's giveaway. Double D was also free for a certain period of time in the LittleBigBunch bundle, which most people have probably forgot by now. Also, the Serious Sam titles are repeats from the Serious Sam Indie Royale bundle.

Just remember guys, when the sale starts there will be one game you want that is 50% off for the entire sale. When the last day hits you will buckle and buy said game. It will be the daily deal for 75% off the next day.

I'm secretly hoping for some crazy, non-standardised percentage discounts to come in and throw people off guard.

"When was the last time Jade Empire was 57% off?"

"Will we see Hydrophobia at better than 79% off?!"

Imagine the carnage :lol:

Don't be ridiculous. Nobody buys games when they're only 50% off. :-s

So... apparently there is new DLC for Rage called 'The Scorchers' that adds more outdoor areas, some items, and another difficulty level. Talk about out of left field... why did they even bother developing paid content for this? Cost is around $5... same as what they sell the base game for at this point.

I've read many people say the DLCs were a lot better than the main game so it might make sense to play those if the main quest gets dull.

That Steam score site is awesome, Steam needs something like this. Without any sort of ranking or score level like the consoles have, I don't find Steam achievements worthwhile and just ignore them completely. Not that console trophies are worthwhile, but at least there is some level of motivation to go after them, for me.


I come at it from exactly the opposite angle. As long as there's no public score, and these separate sites exist just for the junkies who want to compete, I'm down for it. If they made it more visible, I'd probably say hell-with-it. Course I say that now...

you deleted a part of my soul along with it


I lol'd.

Re: Steamscore site

Once I got it to go through all my games, I looked through the scores and values for games. I seriously can't understand the formulas behind quite a few of the numbers. Examples: Borderlands 1 is worth roughly 3,500 total for all 80 achievements while Borderlands 2 is worth roughly 28,000; some games (Sleeping Dogs, Walking Dead) have scores go beyond the stated cap; some games are only worth a couple hundred (Secret of Monkey Island 2 versus Sonic CD) when they have the same number of achievements as other games. Why the Fuck can one game be worth around 8 times the score as another game? Steamscore needs some actual consistency and less wonky formula math before it's really worth checking, but it could be entertaining given enough time.


The formula's a work in progress, so I hear, and another thing that screws the values up is that new achievements are set to 1000 pts apiece until they're manually adjusted. When that Swords and Soldiers DLC came out this summer, I did the chvs real quicklike and they boosted the total score way over almost every other game—since corrected.

Didn't know that was even a possibility, I'll look into that, thanks!


Holy crap. The User CP is all I use here; too much to see otherwise.
