Okay, I'm behind. Someone wanna tell me what CAG 3.0 is all about?

Also, I finished The Walking Dead last night. Welcome to last year, I know. So great. I saw something hinting there was one more episode? A season 2?

Also, I've got Assassin's Creed III, but I've only finished Assassin's Creed II (not Brotherhood or Revelations yet). Can I go ahead to III, or storyline-wise, I'd be better to play Brotherhood and Revelations first? Just kinda itching to play III.

I'd say at least play Brotherhood. It was my favorite in the series both gameplay and story wise.

I believe a second season is planned for The Walking Dead.

Basically a forum upgrade. CAG is moving to an IPS Board. However it was announced like 2 or 3 years ago. Every time I see something about it, all I hear is "Soon" or "Very Soon". Apparently they work on the same time scale as Valve.

So, that means I have to finish S1 on my backlog??????

Is an awesome game... can't remember why stopped playing it...

I just want to give people some info on Cherry Tree High Comedy Club.

I just spent nearly two hours playing it. It's amusing: the dialogue is great, the characters are unique and interesting, and the gameplay mechanics are creative. You explore your town and talk to people, trying to recruit them to join your school club. You do a lot of the same actions over and over, socializing with the people you meet and reading magazines and going to movies to try to increase your skill level in conversation topics.

But here's the thing.

The game isn't intended to be completed in one playthrough. Much like Recettear, you're expected to play through the game multiple times to max up your abilities and thus make it easier to recruit the characters to your comedy club. Me, I'm just not doing that. As much as I enjoyed Recettear, I find it tedious and boring to replay the same conversations and story progression. The reward just isn't that high.

So yeah, two hours in, and I'm shelving the game, so to speak. Gonna move on to Magical Diary now.

Whoa, Cherry Tree High Comedy Club was published by Capcom? I wasn't expecting that.

Looking at the gameplay footage, I feel like the only thing missing from this title is a soundtrack composed by Shoji Meguro.

YES - play Brotherhood. ACB is awesome.

About ACR - I'm currently playing it. It's good, but it doesn't introduce much new to the series.

While ACB introduced NPC Assassins and a whole Multiplayer Component...
ACR just feels like tweaks to the series.
Oh, and ACR's Tower Defense and Portal-like puzzle missions suck.

I ain't touched AC3 yet.
And I don't think anybody's touched AC4: Black Flag yet. ;)

I've completed AC2/ACB/ACR. They cover the story arc of Ezio. I understand AC3 has a new protagonist. Since you've played AC2 and thus have been introduced the AC Assassin/Templar rivalry, I don't imagine the further story elements/reveal of ACB & ACR is that key to AC3.

YES - play Brotherhood. ACB is awesome.

Oh, and ACR's Tower Defense and Portal-like puzzle missions suck.



Having completed ACR, my verdict is "more of the same" but lacking ponies and that compelling element. It's not bad by any means. Play/experiment and have fun with the expanded bomb crafting as soon as it's components open up. Don't worry there are plenty of bomb making components. ProTip: If you still have at least one bomb of a type and components for more you can quick-craft more of those without a table. (ACR in-game tutorials never mention this.)

The tower defense is lame, but you never have to win it after the lol-easy tutorial. You can just fail it then kill the captain -- Assassin Style. One you assign a master assassin to that den you'll never be faced with that again at that location. It's a perversely compelling reason to assign master assassins to your dens asap. You can get the win-3 achive by repeating the tutorial. TL;DR den defense is weak, but easily avoided.

The Portal-light crap is the Lost Archive DLC, dull portal-lite levels while you are slowly dribbled out bits of Desmond's past. I gave up on that halfway through. IMO, don't bother with it unless you're enjoying it. Youtubing it for the story bits would seem to be an option if you're that interested in Desmond's backstory.

Where AC:R's strength lies is in fleshing out more of the Assassins backstory. It finally explains what they mean by, "Nothing is true, everything is permitted."

Deus Ex: Human Revolution Augmented Edition is $6 on GMG (steam key) with GMG20-P4DLK-FKYRS if for some reason you don't own it already, like maybe that prison stint you don't like to talk about ^_~

Better deal:

I'd forgotten about this as I checked GG last night before bed, and promptly forgot about it since I already own it.

I prefer this version:

In this re-imagined narrative, Edward Cullen from the Twilight Series meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer. It's an example of transformative storytelling serving as a pro-feminist visual critique of Edward's character and generally creepy behavior. Seen through Buffy's eyes, some of the more sexist gender roles and patriarchal Hollywood themes embedded in the Twilight saga are exposed - in hilarious ways. Ultimately this remix is about more than a decisive showdown between the slayer and the sparkly vampire. It also doubles as a metaphor for the ongoing battle between two opposing visions of gender roles in the 21ist century.



EDIT:

I bear no responsibility for that. Absurd forms of bestiality =/= pedophilla.

Well, that Remix was better than all 5 Twilight films put together :-x

I only liked the 1st and 5th Twilight film and thought those were decent.
The middle 3 films just flat-out sucked.

And about the deal for the day, you were....somewhat close:

For CIV they like to use "complete" edition. Until you see "complete" assume there will be add-ons.

And yet the Steam FP is still showing me the Serious Sam Bundle...

I never saw any of the Twilight films (I'm pretty picky on what parts of pop kulture I expose myself to.) Though they annoyed me, *another* character called Bella.

You see my main in WoW is/was a gnome mage, Bellamort (Beautiful death, though I was never sure if that referred to the death she caused, or her own -- back in Classic mages were real glass cannons. "Bella's dead" was heard commonly enough on vent to become a running joke/theme in guild, along with "Rezzing Bella". If something went slightly wrong with the Tank(s) I was next on the aggro list, and quite frequently aggro-capped/limited. Aggro management tools used to be far fewer.)

This continued my trend of names that pop kulture would (mis)appropriate. The pretty good Virginia based Darkwave band, Bellamorte, didn't bother me. Harry Potter fanfiction appropriated Bellamort to refer to fanfiction relating to a Bellatrix & Voldemort pairing.

Blah, how did I get on to this... oh right Twilight...

Weird, I'm pretty sure I picked up CivCity Rome for $1 a couple winter sales back.

I agree, the Civ 5 sale isn't bad, and their new Gold version is a lot better than the old GOTY version.

Yep, you're right. According to Steamgamesales it was 99 cents two years ago (2011 Winter sale) but it hasn't been that cheap since and I missed it on that sale.

For some reason Tony has been able to work his magic and get Steam keys for almost every 2K game but this one.

The lowest it has been on Steam since that 2011 is $5. :cry:

Hm. I bought the Civilization V: Korea and Wonders of the Ancient World - Combo Pack in January, but the store thinks I do not own the Wonders of the Ancient World Scenario Pack. It does seem to show up as "Scenario Pack: Ancient Wonders" in my DLC list, however. This is just a bug in the store, right?
