Nope and I'm buying it for the boobies

The game is pretty lackluster imo. It was also part of an amazon bundle for $15 with a bunch of other games not too long ago.

The game itself is a standard action beat-em-up game. I would say save your $5 for something else myself.

I enjoyed Blades of Time ($10, steam summer sale). I want to pickup X-Blades for $5 or less. X-Blades seems to have a 3-activation limit (the same topware DRM goodness as TwoWorlds). Apart from the Steam Daily, GamersGate has X-Blades for $4.95 ($4.20 w/IGN) and boasts a key replacement policy similar to Amazon. Imo, the $15 Amazon bundle wasn't that compelling beyond X-Blades and TwoWorlds (which can be had at $5 each).

Well today is the first time in my life a game I preordered is going straight into the backlog without me even touching it. I am looking at you Torchlight 2.

Glad to see it's finally coming out, but I might just wait for the Mac version so my GF can play (she has a Macbook, and no HD space to install windows), she did get in on a 4 pack with me though. That and I have a huge ass backlog already determined, :lol:.

Wish T2 came out in the summer like Mid July when I wasn't playing D3 anymore and not now when I have Borderlands 2.

Glad you found some enjoyment out of that game. It was a doomed project that somehow found light.

My feelings exactly.

I needed a RPG at that time and some how I found myself stuck in SWTOR. Now I can't give up SWTOR and BL2 is my mix up.

X-Blades is absolutely wretched, even worse than Blades of Time, but if you liked one you'd probably like the other.

Are the Blades games related apart from thematically related? They have different developers.

Torchlight 2.

This is probably my plan as well, since I never bit on the preorder promo. My brother's going to want it when the Mac version becomes available, so I'll probably wait for the first sale price on it and get a 4-pack then.

Not sure what I would have done with extra copies of TL1, but now that that's gone, I don't feel any incentive to buy immediately. At least, until people start talking in this thread about how great it is...

All right, why is this thread on Page 2? Shame on all of you.

By the way, for those that consider Blades of Time [currently] too expensive, just purchase X-Blades, the spiritual predecessor, for $4.99 and get a nice demonstration of Topware Interactive's game design prowess.

Torchlight 2 & Borderlands 2 might have something to do with it!

Basically it's buying in bulk. One person buys a mass amount of copies of the bundle, and it ends up being $1-$2 a copy. The host of the bulk buy distributes the gift URLs to your keys and downloads.


Oh so y'all are usin' the gift feature? Doesn't that still round up to $4 a person? I think I'm just slow atm lol. But I'll have to check it out next time

It's great to finally see the game reach PC's. Understandably, it's a bit late, but it's still a fantastic addition to the PC's line-up.

By the way, is any of the DLC content from the console versions going to be included in the base game?

Hopefully the steam achievements are better. I found the xbox lacking and very easy to get. I might get it if there are other goals for me to shoot for.

I think I must be in the minority in not being super impressed with Castle Crashers. It wasn't a bad game at all, but I just don't think it deserved the 8 megatons of praise it received.

Agree, cool little flash game but nothing I am compelled to buy.

It was fun when it came out, but they missed the boat on a Steam release. At $2.50 I'll probably pick it up, but no more.

I filled up, but Mink-e is hosting too, I've bought off of him before so he's a good guy.

@Sunasun I usually charge by the minute for dances.


I have both Psychonauts and Stacking on Steam, so if I win this, I would like there to be a danceoff to determine the winner of these two awesome games. :lol:

Cheap gets the first one, then the 11th pm I gets the other.

I saw that Company of Heroes 2 is now available for pre-order, with a twist:

http://store.steampo....com/app/55300/

Looks like they're doing a kickstarter-like pre-order bonus. Strange, but it could work out well for them I think, given the love for TF2 hats. There is also a free game up for potential pre-orders, as well as some sort of bonus in-game currency. :)

How the hell is $100 cheap?Posted Image

So, not Steam related, but Resident Evil 5 is $10 on GameStop and the Capcom Store right now. It's GFWL DRM, eh? It's the same on Steam though, isn't it?

Looks like it's been $9.99 on Steam before during the last Winter Sale... Not during the Summer Sale though. Think it'll go lower than 50% off this Winter?

Also, GameStop says it REQUIRES the GameStop client, but does that mean all the time or only for the download? Is the Capcom Store version any different? I can't find any info on the page.

During various Steam sales, yes. Lower than a dollar even.
