Only if your playing it for the story. And, well with RPGs story usually isn't very important...

It's also the best game in the series.

Story isn't important in an RPG? Are you high?

It took me a while to realize this, but I have an aversion towards a lot of things sci-fi. I really don't know why, but if you take the exact same game and change the settings to sci-fi, most of the time it loses its appeal to me. For example, I love Civ and I don't care for Alpha Centauri. I enjoyed the first two DeathSpank games and I can't bring myself to even start the third one. I look forward to playing Dragon Age and KOA, but the thought of starting Mass Effect or Deus Ex makes me want to load up a puzzle game instead. Yeah I know it's weird, and I have no idea why I do this. I guess I can relate more to things that are based in reality (ie a sword instead of a photon rifle).

Being the silly person I am though, I buy everything including sci-fi stuff. So I keep convincing myself that at some point I will play all these titles I am hoarding. The tough part is putting the disc in the drive, starting the game, then coming back to it when I finish for the day or take a break.

So yeah, this will be a chore and not just because it's a time consuming task. ;)



I'm the same way for the most part. So far Halo and Mass Effect are the only two things that are sci-fi that I can get into. I've never even watched a single Star Wars or Matrix movie just because of this. I'd much rather have fantasy then sci-fi any day.

If it weren't for the characters/story, I probably would not have beaten ME1. It's a technical mess with bad framerate, screen tearing, lots of freezing during autosaves, and bad UE3 texture pop-in that made me wish that MS didn't rush that game out.

It just unlocks all of the weapons, gear, and such so you don't have to play the multiplayer to do so.

Only 20% off of mega man. I'll continue to wait.


Agreed. My backlog of games will keep me occupied for another 12 months while Capcom looks up the definition of "sale". ;)

I've been waiting for Mega Man 9 to go on sale ever since I bought Mega Man 10 on sale for 50% off two Easters ago. PS+ gave us both for free, great, but I already own Mega Man 10 for 360, and I like achievements, so my OCD tells me to get Mega Man 9 for 360 instead, if it ever goes on sale. It finally does, and it's only 20% off? Rrrrrreaaaaallllyyyy? After so long? And after PS+ owners just got it for free? I mean... REALLY? Nevermind, I'll tell my OCD to take a long walk off a short dock and go play them on PS3 instead. I guess that's a sign of someone telling me I'm stupid for wanting to give one company money for a game I already own on a competitor's console.

Slight exaggeration on the word "own" but still, pretty damn close.

I can't even get into Halo or Mass Effect, and I really want to get into those games. The only sci-fi I like are the recent Star Trek movie and anything with robots. (Binary Domain - robots that are so advanced that they look human and don't even know that they're not human? I jizzed in my pants.)

You should check out Blade Runner. Once you see that you will think Binary Domain's story is trash like the rest of us.

I'm disappointed that Kingdoms of Amalur Reckoning isn't on sale for $10 with its DLC. I would've jumped on that unlike their other deals.

Haha, Capcom won't even try to build up some good faith by giving me those dlc chars for 50% off to go along with the 2013 update. They have made it too easy to avoid at 20 bucks and now 15.

I am starting to waver on buying DA2 DLC. I have yet to play DA:O from my back log and it is $17 for all the DLC for DA2. Essentially it is about $10 with my cost on points but even 1360 points is a lot to spend on a game I may not play this year. The only thing I worry about is EA does not put the stuff on Sale much and with the new systems coming I wonder what happens to a lot this DLC.

Interestingly enough, one could make the argument that Star Wars is more fantasy than science fiction given the setting (ancient past), the lack of any viable scientific basis for the technology presented, and a protracted emphasis on magical abilities, fate, etc. I would argue Star Wars has more in common with ancient mythology and is more closely related to the works of Tolkien than Bradbury, Ellison, etc.

I was hoping to find a deal on Autovista Car pack in order to augment my Forza 4 Essentials Edition that I got with my Black Friday Xbox 360 bundle, but what I really want is a big sale on the Forza Horizon Season Pass. I find it ironic that the Forza Horizon Season Pass has always stayed at that ridiculous 4000 Microsoft Points ($49.99) price, while the game itself has been as low as $10 on Black Friday (and this price was from Microsoft's own stores, of all places).

Was very pleasantly suprised when I logged on and saw this sale today. Should sate my appetite for a while.

I thought that the first time I watched it too. It was so boring and the story went nowhere.

For some reason, I gave it another chance years later. On the second viewing I realized what a fucking masterpiece it is. Now it's one of my favorites.

Forza Horizon was actually $15 but yeah :P I would never buy the season pass for that much.

Really? I don't think I could sit through it again. Watched it when I was a kid and then again just last year and I still thought it was terrible. I even watched the extended director's cut to see if I was missing something but I still didn't get it. To each his own I suppose.

I kind of went the opposite way with my opinion on it. I liked it as a kid, now I think it's terrible.

I'm also on the fence. I doubt I'll get around to playing Dragon Age II until late 2013 / early 2014. I don't want to buy at 33% off if there's a fair possibility of a better sale within the next 12 months.

Any of you sci-fi or fantasy fans have a means of predicting the future?

I've been waiting for so long on a deal for Deathspank 2. I grabbed The Baconing on sale a while back after LOVING the original Deathspank, but I'm one of those people who wants to play the series (even if it's a loose one, they seem to be connected in some way) in order.

Now I just need to get the points!
