Same here, I was ready to just go get a cheap copy somewhere but I'm glad I can get it on Steam now.

Don't forget to grab the recently-released Restored Content Mod which frankly sounds awesome.

Many are iOS ports, but several of those are really good games. I loved Paper Monsters. PC versions for $5 with controller support (or heck even keyboard support) is a pretty good deal.

Thanks for the announce. It has it's own thread. Thread consensus is PC/Mac ports of tablet games... without the tablet option.

This just found its way to the top of my wish list. Despite all its flaws I loved this game and have been dying to play it again for years. Hopefully I can stay strong til the winter sale.

I can't remember the Story for KOTOR 2 at all so I'll probably get it if it goes 75% off or more. I have it on xbox still. Either I didn't beat it or the ending sucked so much I just forgot it.

No offense intended. I just thought people might also like the thread link. The OP linked each game to reviews, and there has been some game discussion there as well.

I can't remember the plot either. I marathoned both 1 & 2 in a couple days a long time ago. If I remember correctly 2 had the old lady and the cheesiest end boss ever - a couple flying light sabers.

I did like the character creation in 2 better than 1- I passionately HATE(turns me into a yellow jacket) level caps. If I want to spend hours upon hours fighting tuskien raiders to become a badass- please let me. Don't hold me back.

Another thing I loved about the games was being able to play as a female Jedi. One of the first games I remember having the option to play as a female protagonist. I ran both games with a party of Sith females. Great times.

So while waiting around for Isaac to hit ... I downloaded the Sleeping Dogs demo of Steam this morning.

Is it just me .. or does it have really awkward character animations while running. They just seem extremely unnatural.

Things look ok while fighting, but when just walking or running around it seems very odd.

So I bought Sleeping Dogs. I was over my gf's place and her brother was playing Sleeping Dogs and that was tempting me. Then I quick logged into Steam to ask my one friend how the port. I found out that another friend of mine bought it and well peer pressure and the $35 copy at GMG pushed me over the edge.

It really fucking sucks because I have this and Guild Wars 2 this week. Plus I have to beat Sleeping Dogs before Borderlands 2. Yeah, this sucks :lol:.

So basically I figured I now cannot watch any type of TV unless it's at work on my tablet to feed my gaming addiction, lol.

Is getting Just Cause 1 worth it if I already played 2 to death? Not sure if it's much of a downgrade or not.

I actually bought Shuggy for FIVE AMERICAN DOLLARS at only 50% off during the Summer Sale. I do not regret it.

...Anybody got any thoughts on Krater?



Thread regular Flowette had a great review a few threads back. Hopefully he won't mind me reposting it:

Sit down, you. Yes, you Dave.

I'm going to talk a bit about Krater, which I picked up a few weeks ago at launch. I've played 4-5 hours of it now and... I'm sorry to say I can't really recommend it. Yet.

Pros:
- It has a nice take on the post-apocalyptic theme, bit more colour than normal;
- Scratches a hacky-slashy-looty itch which will appeal to some;
- Vast majority of bugs-at-launch have now been fixed;
- Crafting has potential;
- Soundtrack aint bad;
- It's not Diablo 3.

Cons:
- Combat in dungeons is too short-lived, and often relies on just mashing buttons wildly;
- The "Permadeath" gimmick doesn't feel dangerous enough, you can just heal your characters when you get back to a town (Admittedly, Hardcore mode might be a better option);
- It's just not that much fun. I tend to run my characters into a pack of monsters, hit a load of buttons, and hope everybody survives. And I do it a lot. It seems pretty repetitive. There just doesn't seem to be much strategy about it;
- Your characters seem to have a "cap" on their levelling, which means after a while there's no real point in clearing a dungeon or suchlike - they were at max level a few hours ago so what's the point?

I think it can become a pretty good game in time, with a few tweaks here and there. The devs, FatShark, seem to be taking feedback pretty seriously so hopefully we'll see a betterer version introduced over the coming weeks and months, but as it stands Krater just isn't that fun to play. It's really quite samey.

Multiplayer is being patched in sometime next month (I think) which might change it up a bit, but I'd only jump in on it if it really looks like you're kinda game. Casual hackyslashers might get bored pretty fast.


Hope that helps Dave.


Workin on it

after further review, I retract my previous statement but it's sometimes hard to fight my cag instincts. I believe it will be at a lower price within 3 months, just saying. Not Gay

It sounds like Krater didn't come out of the gates strong but the developers are making it better. Might be a good pickup.

Krater is fun. But I'd probably wait till the co-op is released. There will likely be a sale/promotion around the time it is released that is at least equal to that Gamersgate sale.

No firsthand experience, but everything I've heard says 2 is far superior, and there's no point playing 1 over 2.
