Dishonoroed reviews are out: http://www.metacriti.../critic-reviews

It looks as great as it seemed it would be.


IGN says the story is wanting but gameplay is so good they gave it a 9.3. Also said PC versions looks so much better get it if you have a choice, which is kinda duh since its GFWL and great gamepad support, but that confirms the PC port is good unless someone has seen something bad about it?

Since I can't get the $20 rewards with PC version at BB, I think I'll sell my 360 copy after reading that. Between BB preorder special DLC, the $20/ in rewards, I should easily make some money on it,and just get the PC version first good sale I see.

People said Dishonored was a Steampunk Deus Ex. Reviews are confirming that, and well Dishonored will be my GOTY because of this. I fucking love Deus Ex just because of the openness to the game and this will be just as awesome it seems.

I am excited.

Dishonored is GFWL?

Whew, thank goodness you're wrong. It is Steamworks. Scared me there for a second.

No, it's just Games for Windows. Steamworks is its DRM across the board.

Oh thank god. For a second I was worried.

Also just checked PC Requirements. Holy shit is it beefy. It better be optimized and not a shitty port.

Great news, this new episode looks like another winner. One of the best games to come out this year, no doubt.

Anyone ever have sound problems with Spec Ops: The Line? I recently bought it from Gamefly, and I have no sound at all during cutscenes. I looked at all of the fixes for it, and none worked. I read somewhere that its recommended to update my drivers, but unfortunately most new drivers make my entire computer unstable for most other tasks, so I want to avoid that. Anyone have any advice?

MAN, I'm still salty that my walking dead save file corrupted when i DLed episode 3. My only options are to play through episodes 1 and 2 again or "pick random outcomes" to the decisions. 1st world problems.

Sounds like the console versions suffer due to PC optimization on graphics. Word is it has screen tearing and pretty murky textures on consoles according to a statement on.metacritic

Are the PC specs that beefy? I looked at a couple articles that said they were surprisingly modest but that was in August. Have they increased since?

I'll be waiting on the game anyway given my backlog. Maybe I'll have a new graphics card by the time I get around to it.

Well, it looks like the Polish keys for Blood Bowl: Legendary Edition and Supreme Commander Gold have all been exhausted from CDaction. That lasted all of 12 hours. They haven't been removed from my inventory yet, so I'm hoping I got them for free last night. E-penis leveled up! Backlog length increased by 2!

RPS likes it too.

I'm more happy that they like XCOM, since that's the game I'm spending my bucks on.

Wait, they actually developed on PC first. Jesus Christ I haven't heard that statement in ages. Usually it's all consoles then pray for a decent port.

I got my key in from GMG so I will be downloading as soon as I get home from work. That is considering my other PSN downloads are done. I wanted to get Sonic Adventure 2 and Nights on Steam but I decided to get them on PSN since they are already out.

I'm.not sure, just sounds like its possible. A game that runs great on PC but has issues on both consoles graphically.....

It tells you which bundles are coming up and gives a rough estimate of when on the bottom of the IR page. 1 week for the next bundle, 4 for the one after that.

Ha! I actually DLed the demo on PSN the other day, but still too much. I'd get it at a few bucks.

Also, my Walking Dead saves got lost after Ep. 2 so I had to replay it. Made some different choices, so going back to replay it yet again. I don't mind personally. Good drama.

I started my 2nd playthrough of Deus Ex last week, both the original and HR. So when I saw these reviews for Dishonored I couldn't help myself: got it from GMG with the 25% coupon.

If you have any version of blood bowl in your library I believe you get a substantial discount on the new version coming out. If you are worried about losing it you could get the new version while the old is still in your library on the somewhat cheap.

Yup, didn't fix it. For some reason I decided to give it a shot later and surprise, it works just fine now. No idea what did it though lol.

Just a heads up, after 8,500 bundles are sold in the current Groupees Be Mine 5 they will unlock a bonus Steam key for Kung Fu Strike: The Warrior's Rise.

At this time they only need 23 more bundles sold to unlock.

Hmm.. I didn't know that. Where is this button? As much as I wish there was a pick outcomes manually button (I don't really know why there isn't, seems easy enough to implement), this should do the trick. I'm primarily playing through the series on PSN, but I have it on Steam as well and would just rather run through the episodes quickly on there.

Ugh, figures that I just bought Kung Fu Strike something like 2 weeks ago. :-x

Well, good news for everyone else, because the game's great.
