From what i'm reading, the Unreal Complete pack current deal isn't that great of a deal. I'm really wanting to get it, i'm hoping it'll be 75% for the Winter Sale.


I bought the complete pack for 75% off during the summer sale. So I'd say that is highly likely that it will reach that price during the coming summer sale. Might only be a one daily deal (or a flash sale), but it'll hit that price again. So unless you're absolutely dying to play it now, I say hold off for a few weeks.

Civ 5 Gold is coming to steam. And I just bought GOTY + G+K too x.x

Excuse me as I have a chuckle at your expense.

lol

OK, now that that's out of the way, is this it for Civ 5? Are there any more DLC planed? Am I gonna be hearing about a Platinum edition a year from now? Or can I now safely buy Civ 5?

You can never safely buy Civ 5 until Civ 6 comes out. You know this.

I thought Diablo 3 was pretty good, as well.
I just am NOT a fan of the "always online DRM", when I was easily able to GO SOLO the entire game no problem.
Granted, it is quite fun, when playing w/ others online.

Eh, I loved Max Payne 3. Just finished the SP portion last night.
I thought Mass Effect 3 was great, except for the last 5-10 minutes (the end stuff), more or less.


I think out of the 40 or so hours I played Diablo 3, I probably only enjoyed about 2 hours worth; the majority of that was playing through Insanity with 2-3 friends, woefully underequipped. We did manage to defeat Diablo but it took 45 minutes! (thank goodness for no enrage timer on the big D)

I wanted to like MP3; I generally am a big fan of Rockstar games (esp RDR and Bully but even commonly maligned games like GTA4 and LA Noire). I'm not sure why I was so disappointed by it, but perhaps its linearity (and unrelatable protagonist) turned me off from the "story" crammed down my throat.

I loved ME3 quite a bit, though not as much as ME2. The multiplayer was quite fun with friends, but I eventually grew to despise the IAP roulette wheel of doom due to its uneven and random progression system. The game itself was great, though there were many changes from the previous two games that I thought were questionable (especially the "readiness meter" and the fact it made hardly any impact on the ending). The ending... well this horse has been beaten quite enough, so I won't get into it.

When I say my biggest disappointment this year is D3, it's not because it's a bad game. My biggest disappointment last year was Heavy Rain (with DA2 closely behind), though neither were bad games. They just completely failed to live up to the hype and/or personal expectations.

THQ hate? GET OUT!

Relic alone is worth it. Dawn of War, Company of Heroes. Saints Row the Third was my game of the year. Metro 2033 is amazing and atmospheric ( I still have that whistling stuck in my head).

They totally put the wrong Red Faction up, but oh well.

THQ is boss, I love them. Have for a long time, they make or publish some of my fave games. If they went under, I'd be super bummed out. My only hope would be that Voliaition and Relic would get picked up. My fear is that EA or Activision would do just that.

I only bought the extra civilizations/wonders DLC. The maps and scenarios would never get used by me anyway since I always just play a straight game on a random map.

You talked me off of the ledge.....for now :)

I won't be playing it immediately, especially since I just got my Microsoft store Skyrim today!

You're right in that it has been $9.99 before, but it's not like $13 is a bad deal either. I'd still say it's easily worth that, it's just potentially worth waiting for if you're not in a rush to play them since the winter sale is a month away.

I can't be a Blizzard fanboy anymore since they crapped on my hopes and dreams with Diablo III.

THQ is all I got left of my child like (teenage...) innocence of loving a singular game company way too much.

And then they are on the brink of dying... NO!

A lot of people sleep on the Explorer's Map Pack. If you like playing on random, scripted maps then this is the DLC for you.

The only good thing about Diablo 3 was I was able to make $2000+ on the RMAH. In all other aspects IMO it's a failure and Torchlight 2 in general is just a really fun game and better in every aspect.

It makes sense. You just have to look at the evidence. >.>

I played it quite a bit when it first came out, but found the ONLINE ONLY to really be a turn-off. Even though I was playing single player, and have the battle.net mobile authenticator program, someone was still able to sign in to my account and empty my character of both gold and loot every 3 or 4 days. After about 2 weeks of that, I gave up on the game, called the $60 a loss, and moved on.

I'm know it's been discussed, but is the GoTY SR3 worth it, or should I get the standard edition to drop to a reasonable price. I skipped over all the SR3 DLC talk in the summer sale, because it was out of my price range at that point.

My main concern is I've seen a screen shot of people attacking others with huge purple dildos and I need to know if that is in the standard edition or what DLC I need to get to enjoy that sort of gaming.

Damn. And here I thought I was hot shit when I got $40 for selling some virtual plants in Ultima Online in 2000.

The dildo weapon is just in the game. So you don't need any dlc for that.

Yeah but no sensible person can attack someone with a purple dildo without wearing their pimp suit!

Thank you, a simple answer to a simple question. Plus, I'm sure that there were a few other CAGS that were dying to know the answer to that question.
