Does the mod make you stronger, more money, health or just for the look? I have base game.


It depends, just look at the forum there are different mods.

I'm totally lost about this DoW pack, mainly about... where to start playing. Is there a good game to jump in to first? I'm really terrible at RTS games so I've practically avoided the genre.


You can start on DoW or DoW 2, there's barely a reference between them. I think Retribution makes some references to DoW 1, but nothing too crucial I think (Still ain't played retribution, but I read about that)

If you like Tactical games, start with DoW 2, then chaos rising then retribution (or you can directly go to the last stand with Retribution for some multiplayer)

RTS: DoW, Winter Assault, Dark Crusade, Soulstorm

Can I get some opinions on Darksiders 2? I own the first and I played it for about 4-5 hours before I got really, really bored. I really enjoy God of War (I've beaten all 5 games) and TLoZ , but something about Darksiders didn't click for me. Will the second one be any better?


I strongly suggest that you try again, I'm not sure which point did you reach but from the amount of hours you say you played :

I think that he should start with the 1st one + expansions.
Then of course the 2nd one.

Does it have an open world? Is the gameplay boring? I can't stand repetitive hack n' slash (except for Dynasty Warriors 3 :lol:)

Nah, I got it for $12.99. Unless there was a pricing error on Dark Souls I don't know about.

That extra $5 was from an Amazon CS who gave it to me when I called in for 2k Super Strategy Pack when it was priced for $14.99 on Jan. 2. It was that price briefly. I had just bought that pack the day before and wanted a refund. Since I used the key, they gave me $5 credit that works on anything. So I was looking at a free DoW Franchise Pack or a $5 MP3.


Ahh got it. Makes sense.

I remember playing DoW II beta on Steam and it was actually quite cool. But Darksiders 2 looks awesome too. And I'm trying to limit my gaming so limiting myself to one! Too tough of a decision.

TQ is awesome period.
And I'm so looking forward to Grim Dawn.


Agreed. After the Diablo games themselves, TQ is the Diablo-style game I've put the most time into. It has that hook that a lot of other games lack.

Personally I found Titan Quest/Immortal Throne one of the most bland and boring Diablo-clones I've ever played.


You know what game I want? Revenant. That game was THE GAME.

With Torchlight and now Path of Exile, there's a lot of awesome games in the Diablo style now too.

I have little interest in the DoW pack, and I have a massive backlog, but is this such a good deal that I can't pass up? I probably won't be playing it anytime soon. I already own DoW and titan quest from the humble thq bundle

So, after activating my codes I somehow managed to have "DoWII - Retribution" and "DoWII- Retribution - The Last Standalone" added to my Gift Inventory? Whaaaa?
EDIT: As there is no "CD Key" link for DoW II Retribution" in my library, I'm going to assume that because I activated "The Last Standalone" before the base game, it glitched. Trouble is, I won't be able to actually play it to check for issues until next week.

Did you have it before? I'll trade you Darksiders 1 for DoWII Retribution :)

I loved being able to combine two classes rather than just the single class path. I also loved the artifacts. IIRC, it was basically a talisman you could make once you find the right materials. It was like having stat and attribute improvements boiled down into a single, equippable item. I only ever found a couple artifact plans but they were so handy that I didn't mind.

If I didn't have Torchlight II to beat (or, Borderlands 2 - 88 hours in!) I would readily reinstall Titan Quest Gold right now.

Awesome deal on the DoW games! I love the first, never finished it though.

Yeah, Darksiders starts out VERY slow, I didn't like it very much either until later in the game when you get more abilities. it takes a few hours, but it does pick up, so if you can suffer through the general tedium of the first few hours it gets MUCH better. It's a very fun game overall, just very slow pacing initially.

I'd love to get the pack here so I can play Darksiders 2, but my PC is really old and I would rather have it on Xbox 360. :-(

RTS/Tactical games.

And titan quest it's a hack n' slash alĂ  Diablo.

In my opinion they're not worth it (SR3 dlcs). I'm fine with the base game + the mods (http://www.saintsrow...forum/index.php).


Does it have the mod similar to just cause 2 Blackmarket mod - Everything free and unlocked?

Not free, but there's something like that:

The best part is "The mod allows you to access and keep weapons you normally might not be able to"

I wish there was a re-release of Revenant. One of my favorite games of all time and something I prefer over Diablo. Yeah. I said it.


ALSO: This DoW complete pack has left me with two spares of The Last Standalone, 1 spare of Dawn of War II Retribution and Dawn of War 1.

Lucky you then, it works but there are like 3 different version of the game with three different dubbings:
The original in chinese
The good one dubbed in english (pretty good*) by the chinese guys
The bad dubbed in english by americans

Where did you find it?

I bought it off of eBay a billion years ago. I'm not sure which version I have. I'm tempted to install it to find out. Hell, I'm going to do that tonight and find out. I'll let you know!

That game was amazing. I hope they re-release omikron too. I own both games on their physical version... but don't want to mess with physical media. I think they may be scratched by now. That happened with Abomination: The Nemesis Project. Luckily Gamersgate have it, so I bought it again.

Other game I REALLY want on a digital (working) version is Requiem: Avenging Angel.

Good gaming then, I think that there's a spiritual sequel. Seal of Evil, but it's nowhere as good as Prince of Qin.

Agreed.
And also - Amazon DVG should pick it (Prince of Qin) up, too.

YES!
I missed out on Omikron - I'd love to see that get onto GOG and other digital services!
