Send a price match request for Castlevania. Hopefully it gets matched so I can use one on my $5 amazon gift cards :)

Playing BL2 for the free weekend. I'm not sure if it's due to my recent driver update or the game, but BL2 doesn't have the screen tearing issue I'd see in BL1 on occasion. Playing as Maya. So far her special skills are pretty much a waste, so I'm missing my Mordecai, but looks like she can do pretty substantial amounts of damage later on. 

Correct... Maya can do massive amounts of damage later in the game. She's also one of the very best at crowd control. Phaselock the toughest guy in view (now he's out of the picture for a moment), all the surrounding guys are drawn together towards the phaselock, all take massive slag/elemental damage. In the meantime, you mop up the crowd that's left over and enjoy faster shooting and higher gun damage.

 

The sniper in this game plays much differently than Mordecai. Zer0 is best as a melee player, but he can definitely be decked out to do some massive sniping damage. Finding the right balance that pleases you shouldn't be too hard.

So far her special skills are pretty much a waste, so I'm missing my Mordecai, but looks like she can do pretty substantial amounts of damage later on. 

 

Anyway, looks like at least money and health and ammo are automatically picked up now, which is a huge improvement over BL1. At least when stuff is from kills, anyway--they didn't do the same for chests, which makes no sense to me. I'm also still annoyed that holding E to grab everything from a chest also still switches out your equipment for whatever you happen to be looking at. That's something that was annoying enough in the first game that they really should have fixed. There was more than one time that I ended up accidentally trading out my shield or grenade and never realized it until I had no idea where my good equipment had gone. It's a really bad system IMO.

 

Hoping it hits $15 on GMG soon. I'll use my credit there for it and pick it up for <$5. Short of that, I'll keep enjoying the free weekend for a few more days via offline mode and changing my clock (I was busy the past few days, so didn't get to play until today.)

 

A waste? Say what? I feel like Maya is the easiest character to use in the game, even early on. Phaselock is a godsend in every situation, especially when you start decking it out with perks (the healing one, especially). Even the toughest, most armored enemies can just be phaselocked, then sidestepped and shot in the head at point blank till they're dead.

 

BL2 has been super cheap in the past. I'm surprised interested people don't have it yet. 50% off is sorta terrible, even at the new MSRP, compared to past sales.

Interesting tidbit...  Since I bought everything near release, I've probably spent around $75 on BL2+DLC.  At 395 hours, that's about $0.18 an hour.  I probably have 200+ bundle games that average out to let's say, $0.20 each.  I may have played 5 of them for a collective total of < 5 hours.  I think I've gotten my money's worth out of BL2.  

 

Something else to think about...  How many people have bought or are waiting to buy BL2 and haven't finished/started BL1?  Those same people probably waited to get BL1 once it dropped to $5 for the GOTY.  See the trend?

But you're just about done with BL2 and yet you have a huuuuuuuge backlog of bundle games that'll last you into your 60's.

Well stated.

 

I paid $7.50 for BL1 GOTY (the very first time it hit $7.50 (75% off) and played it pretty promptly (150 hours).  I picked up BL2+Mechromancer+Season Pass for ~$30 total 3-4 months after release (150 hours)... honestly I wish I'd just gotten in the $30-35 BL2 pre-orders.  There are my two longest-played Steam games, and I've gotten a ton of enjoyment out of them... it's very similar to Elder Scrolls' fans on CAG ordering Skyrim near release... they really like it, they'll play it a ton... money well spent.

 

IIRC a while back CAGs were posting some interesting stats.. like how they've only played (not beaten, launched) ~20% of games in their collection.

Talking about Borderlands 2, I bought base game during Decemeber 2012 on the "Gamersgate epic fail". It was in €, but for that time, was a 4-pack around  4$ at maximum.

Something else to think about...  How many people have bought or are waiting to buy BL2 and haven't finished/started BL1?  Those same people probably waited to get BL1 once it dropped to $5 for the GOTY.  See the trend?

The thing is: you didn't care about price when you bought BL2 stuff b/c you bought something you knew that you'd get TONS of mileage out of. When you keep replaying games + buying DLC's/expansions and you actually keep playing said game - you certainly are getting your $'s worth. At 395 hrs and counting - I think you've done just fine. :D

 

My weakness for buying at higher-prices usually normally include games from BioWare, Obsidian, Bethesda, CD Projekt, and long-winded RPG's - i.e. games I think I know I'll spent TONS of time with.

 

Me, I'm normally not really one to replay games. I might do one run-through and that's it - especially if it's long and big w/ tons to do, there's a MUCH less likely chance it'll get a 2nd run-through.

 

If it's a short game (like 5-10 hours) per play-through like Shadow of Destiny w/ numerous different endings - there's a better chance that I'll replay it.

 

I don't even wanna think about my Steam, retail, Origin, Gamersgate, Retail, and other services/clients backlog w/ stuff unfinished, untouched, barely started, never installed, never downloaded, and/or anything of the sort. All I know - I at least have these games, in case that game stops getting distributed.

That was a bug when I tested it 3 weeks or so ago.
 
One thing to remember with a beta . .especially a MMO .. is what you are playing is nothing near what the release will be with release day patches.
 
Chances are that bug was squashed it will not be there once the game releases.
 
90% of the testing that is going on now (and for the last few months) is primarily stress testing. Seeing how the well the servers can handle lots of people. Even the last email I got said to get in on the stress test this Saturday :)
 
But like most MMO's, or always online DRM games, it will probably fail at launch. No matter how much "stress" testing happens the authentication servers )or something else) almost always crash under pressure preventing people from logging in and playing.


Tell that to Square Enix and FFIV original. They kept promising during beta massive update at release... never came.

I thought the US site got by that time the same price error as the EU. I was wrong then.

It was a cascading problem that GG kept making it worse (applying a 50% discount multiple times)... I was drawn in initially drawn in by BL2 (1-pack) at $16... then the 4-pack dropped to $22.50, then $11.25, even to $6.xx (I'd see a screenshot, the site was well hammered by then, but I hadn't seen conclusive evidence that anyone got in at the $6 before it got pulled).  There's a few other details there I'm not remembering off the top of my head.  Also the season pass briefly was $7.50 but that got fixed before the really deep BL2 drops.  It was a total and complete mess.

 

Mind you, at the time BL2's best sale price anywhere else was ~$30 (maybe as low as $25)... BL2 pre-orders (which came with the Mechro pack) were still a better/even deal.

 

excuses

I'm still marking that down as CAG-fail on your permanent record.

$15?!? Do you think I'm made of money?!? =P

 

The only times I've paid over $10 for a game was for Football Manager 2013, cos they never seem to go below $15 and that game series is a huge favourite of mine, and BF3 Premium for $18. I loved the game on PS3 but I wanted to play it with mouse/kb when I got my new gaming laptop.

 

Since then I've become more price savvy, have a huge collection of games as a result and I can wait for AAA titles I want to be GOTY 75% off or bundled, whichever comes first.

 

The game will still be just as good when I get it. I'll play something else till then.
