I've said it before and I'll say it again; Hitman is following the DXHR pricing trend from last year. I highly expect it to keep dropping in price sooner than later.

Good point, it is dropping like a rock.
I'm Elbow deep in Borderlands 2 & Amalur too at the moment.

Is Dark Souls worth getting on PC? I heard about it being a bad port and such, and the framerate is capped so it's smoothness isn't much better than console (although I would assume it'd be better in like Blighttown). I also heard the mouse and keyboard controls are god awful, too.

Check the Steam Forums... there is a Community made patch that will make it 1080p and run smooth. I would highly recommend using a XBOX 360 controller on PC though as it is difficult to control using the mouse and keyboard.

It's easily (and really must be) modded to look better and have an uncapped framerate. The KBAM in general sucks though. I'd only get it if you have a gamepad.

Hello Cags,
I need a suggestion, I finished Far Cry 3 yesterday with 100% maps and side quests and now I am itching for something not necessarily similar but as good. I haven't played Xcom, Skyrim, Dishonored and Devil May Cry 5. What should I go for next?


Quick Review FC3: Great shooter, fantastic graphics (as in you can make a wallpaper out of every frame), not so involving story but still good. And this is coming from someone who didn't like FC2.

EDIT: I know Bathesda games are not on Amazon.
Edit 2: wow and no DMC5 either.

I would think that with all the praise Dark Souls gets for being difficult that people would welcome the difficulty in using it without a controller.

Oh darn, I don't have a 360 controller. I don't know I already have Dark Souls for PS3 but the PC version comes with DLC so I figured it might have been worth it.

Then use your PS3 controller. Easy to setup it up on PC with motioninjoy. It can be setup to emulate a 360 pad.

I didn't know you could make a PS3 controller work through USB, only through bluetooth. Thanks!

I own both Far Cry 3 and Skyrim. I love BOTH FPS and RPG [my 2 favorites genres]. I can wholeheartedly say Skyrim is a much better game than Far Cry3; so if you were impressed by FC3, Skyrim should blow your mind.

Also:
Far Cry 3 - Metascore 88
Skyrim - Metascore 94

A very cool Skyrim Mod:

I tried Dishonored after doing Hitman: Absolution & Far Cry 3. I quickly got bored with Dishonored but I don't know if that was because I didn't like the game itself or if I was just burnt out on crouch-walking through my video games.

I learned of this site during the run-up to the Steam Summer Sale 2012. I posted something on the Steam forums asking about some game going on sale or hoping it would. Tony made a rare SPUF post linking to this thread where, naturally, Amazon was putting the game on sale the next day.

I give my vote to XCOM. Most addictive game I've played in years. I just finished Dishonored two days ago. Another fantastic game. Going to play it again in a few weeks and try a different play style (after I finish Far Cry 3 and Modern Warfare 3). Never played any of the Elder Scrolls or Devil May Cry games...

And I couldn't disagree more with that. Far Cry 3 is far, FAR better than Skyrim. Why? Because Far Cry is a carrot on a stick with a great reward for doing everything. New moves, abilities, guns, - fantastic. Skyrim? It's a carrot on a stick with no carrot. Yep, that's right. There's no payoff AT ALL! It's just aimless wander around. Where's the loot? Where's the reward? Skyrim was my least favorite game in recent memory, and I can't fathom all the high praise. Sure, Skyrim will last many, many hours longer, but you'll wonder why you're bothering.

Most overrated games in the last year:

1.) Skyrim.
2.) Persona 4 for the Vita (admittedly a "special" edition, but still).

Feel free to flame away now. :D

I have actually bought the THQ Medley, Darksider Franchise, SR3 Franchise and even the THQ Humble Bundle..

very tempted to get the THQ Full Bundle to secure the remaining missing ones but I would have so many spare codes :/

Is everything in the DOW Franchise Pack now in the THQ Full Pack too?

It's okay, real gamers put pointless, idiotic people like that guy on "ignore" because they know his opinion is worthless and has no effect on the industry or gamer consensus. Just another troll going against the grain to instigate conversation in his otherwise solitary, bridge-dwelling life. ;)

It's one thing that it's your least favorite game, a whole different one is that you think it's a bad game just because you didn't know what to do with it.

What's with the plague of solipsism these days anyway? Have we become so isolated in this, the age of social networking??

I find Skyrim fun if you have a good imagination and inner storyteller. I love creating different characters, playing them in their own styles, making choices according to their personalities, etc.

Incredible game, especially with mods (looks utterly gorgeous with ENB), but it can feel pointless if you're not into it.
