Edit: Wohoo for credited back again. I love amazon customer support

Good morning, I just woke up and found that Alice's price dropped $20 in my cart...

Not sure if they are price matching another retailer but this is a great deal. I want the PC version but I have a nice backlog so I'll probably wait until Black Friday :/.

Excellent game, despite the average reviews, I don't understand how it is getting such universally average numbers.

I'm enjoying Brink quite a bit. It feels vastly improved (performance) over when it first came out.

Save yourself the money and pass on Brink. The other two should be more than worth purchasing though.


Yeah, definitely agree. Just thought i'd throw it in to the OP since it was part of their deals this week.


I'd say that Brink is worth it (so far). Got it for PS3 during the TRU 2 for $50 glitch a week ago. It's pretty much Killzone 2 + Team Fortress 2 with parkour. The shooting feels nice, looks nice and the only area that isn't nice about the game is the lobby system (there isn't one). The developers botched a simple feature for MP - you don't know if you're playing with real players or not some times. That's my only gripe with the game so far. Also, there's a huge patch coming out in a couple of weeks plus free DLC (new maps, new weapons).

I was wondering what to do with my copy. I have it for 360 but haven't opened it yet. I got it for $25 witha price match at Walmart so it's not like I'd be losing much but I don't want to open it if it's complete garbage.

It has to be worth $25, right?

I got Brink with low expectations at the gamestop buy 2 get 1 free deal.
I got it with crysis 2 and Dead Space 2 and Brinks the only one i kept, its a solid online game.
If you like mirrors edge and/or tf2 just buy it.

It seems to be a very polarizing game. You'll either enjoy it a lot or hate it and the only real way to tell is to play it yourself.

What are peoples impressions on this game so far ? Seems like a dark and quirky platformer/action game and I like dark and quirky games

Hmm tempting... I recently finished InFamous 2 and LA Noire so I would have time to fit this game in though I do have other games in my backlog already. Either way thanks for the heads up OP!

Though it is a good game, I can see why it's getting not great reviews. There's no center camera button which some people use a lot. The amount of invisible walls is ridiculous, the levels are 4 hours each which gets repetitive instead of having more shorter levels. And of course, sometimes the textures are extremely bad, and I can say that even though I don't care if the graphics are great or not. Everything just feels 10 years behind what it should be.

REGARDLESS of my rant about the game, I do think that it is fun despite it's problems. I say support this game so that they will make a third and final game. It is definitely worth the $40 or $30 if you can shell it out.

I expect this to drop even even more pretty quick. It was an ok game I think 30 bucks is about right new so you can get the first Alice with it. Otherwise I'd wait until 20 used.
The story is not that great and the levels are way too long.

I can see your other points but I just never ran into a problem with invisible walls. Maybe twice I actually tried to go somewhere and ran into one, otherwise I was really looking for spots because I heard of that complaint before I played the game and found it hard to find any that would actually trick you. If it doesn't have some kind of item pick up, enemy on it, or platform/bouncer next to it, you just don't need to explore which really seemed to solve that problem for me in my 13 or 14 hour playthrough.

If you have a decent computer, trust me:

Buy

The

Witcher

2.

It's a PHENOMENAL game. I buy about 50 games a year, and finish at least 15 or so. The Witcher 2 is the best single player title I've played in YEARS. Other than an abrupt ending, it's a nearly perfect game. Easily up in my Top 10 of all time, nestled with games like KOTOR, Ocarina of Time, and Metal Gear Solid.

I've had my eye on it but sadly my pc couldnt even begin to run it. I was really excited when the xbox 360 version was confirmed.:bouncy:

Witcher 2 will be cheaper. Not in any hurry.

Alice PC doesn't come with the original Alice I don't think. Unless I can be sure I'm getting original Alice with it, I'm in no hurry.

I'm trying to figure out if Alice PC comes with the first game as well. If it does I'm all over the deal.

Alice on PC only comes with the original if you buy from origin.com

Other than that, Alice is amazing. Everyone's price point is different to buy, but either way if you are even slightly interested in this game buy it when it hits your price. Reviews are wrong, play it before you write it off.

Actually the version on Origin with the original Alice was only available for the first week of release, it no longer comes with the original on there.

In for Alice. That's as cheap as I see it getting for at least another month or two.

I was never "tricked" by invisible walls, but there was some places that it looked like she would be able to go or fit if she shrunk, but I knew right away she wouldn't be able to, but with games today, you really should be able to go everywhere. Not that I mind a game where you don't get lost every 10 minutes, but I still feel it brings the game down a bit.

The Witcher 2 is the best PC RPG game this year...BY FAR, so far.

As much as I want to pick up Alice, I wouldn't be able to play it right away. As with many other games that I don't play immediately, they drop even lower in price once I get to them. I'll wait and hopefully I'm done with the games I'm playing now when Alice costs a bit less.

I get that, but I don't see why it matters. If you didn't run into it, and there was absolutely nothing there of consequence, why would it?
