Gothic Vs Arx Fatalis today.

I think Gothic may be the better game and have more fans, but this isn't about voting for the best game - it's voting for which one gets the best sale. Considering that Gothic has been on sale somewhere every month for roughly a decade, might I suggest voting for Arx Fatalis? :)

I voted for Gothic myself as I already played Arx Fatalis on the original XBOX. I had bought it brand new since I had just played Morrowind and wanted something similar. It's definitely more focused and linear than Morrowind was (I had to buy the strategy guide just to figure out what I was supposed to be doing), but it's a great RPG. I was so intrigued with the world the developers had created and would have gladly bought a sequel.

Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars vs. The Last Express today.

Wasn't this the Broken Sword game that was free a little while back?

EDIT: Yup, voted for The Last Express.

Had Postal 2 in my cart but I couldn't bring myself to pull the trigger. Ended up just getting Arx Fatalis today and voted for Broken Sword for tomorrow even though it's already way behind. :D

Oh man. Silent Storm. I loved that game. Destructible environments in a turn-based squad game. Nothing like having your machine gunner go through a house, have a nazi pop open a door, and your gunner mow him down with a full clip that ends up tearing through the bathroom's wall and sending that poor baddie out the window.

Also, there are ninjas...

I voted for Last Express I have heard great things about it. Now if it wins I just have to remember to buy it tomorrow.

Loved the original Soul Reaver. I vaguely recall the sequel on PS2 and I remember being disappointed. Anyone else have thoughts on Soul Reaver 2? If I recall correctly, I loved the sense of progression on the original, killing each of the brothers and then the ending was a cliff hanger. I just remember 2 not being quite the same ...

Eh, I played it ages ago. From what I remember it had a good lock on system for a third person perspective game and I found the story engaging. I'm actually waiting for the first game in the series to be released since I never got a chance to play it. It's actually a top down perspective action rpg, unlike the later entries.

First Soul Reaver and now Soul Reaver 2? I am liking this! Now hopefully they release Blood Omen 2 (meh) and Legacy of Kain Defiance (yah!) and I will be happy! I am also hoping they release the original Blood Omen as well but I have been seeing it as a free download on places like Abandonia so I am wondering if the rights to the game are in limbo.

Can someone tell me if Deus Ex 2's godawful load time is fixed? I remember how bad it was on the original Xbox to the point of just being unplayable and I heard the PC version suffered similarly as they basically capped it to work on the Xbox.
If it's fixed and I don't have to deal with it I'll definitely buy it.

Honestly, I wouldn't. Sales are fairly rare and that game...it's a gem. Truly worth the price.

Sales are fairly rare


At GOG? The same place that has an annual half-off sale on virtually their entire catalog, weekend deals every weekend, 60% discounts one or two Wednesdays a month?
