I don't get it though. It's a third person FPS? He's just... like a cop that is on the run right? Or is it the story that's so awesome? And does it hold up to the time test (could I start playing 1 today and not be fully aware the game is 10+ years old?)?


It's like playing the Matrix, really. In fact, one of the most popular mods for it turned it into the mansion hallways from Matrix Reloaded.

It's a third person shooter with slow motion mechanics that allows you to dodge bullets and slow down time. The story is about a New York cop who walks in as his wife and baby are being murdered by drug addicts. This leads him to join the DEA where he stumbles across a conspiracy, and goes on a bloody warpath of revenge.

That's the first game. The second one isn't quite as awesome in story, but is even more awesome in gameplay.


It's the godfather of bullet-time! I played the Kung Fu mod for MP1 but I can't remember if it was any good or not. MP2 is on the shelf...

Port Royale 3 is on sale at Green Man Gaming. With the 30% off code it would bring it to $7 and the individual DLC to like $1.05 -- so basically you get the full package for the same price the base game was on Steam a few day ago (and yes it's Steamworks).

The Kung Fu mod was amazing. There was also a mod that let you dual wield every gun in the game, so you could rock two AA-12 style shotguns and just mow everyone down.

MP2 had a mod where some guy changed nothing but the bullet time, but when you'd go into bullet time Crystal Method or Type O Negative would play, and the screen would go a sepia tone. I used to love going into bullet time just to hear Name of the Game by Crystal Method.

And no it doesn't have crappy 3rd party DRM, contrary to what some guy in the Steam forum who doesn't even own it wrote about it.

Except the GG one needs a hand reaching in to try to take some of the games back after he already left with them...

Never played myself, although from what I hear there aren't many improvements over Port Royale 2 -- just graphics.

No, aside from flukes like last year's Amazon coupon stuff. 75 percent off is the threshold for most games unless the publisher likes to bundle stuff, which CD Projekt hasn't shown any affinity for.

Thinking about picking up Rage for $4.99 worth it?

i think it would be better to get the physical copy for a console version for the same price instead. i dont think the 25gb install is worth it

All though there is some tweaking involved (unless the new DLC has fixed it) but the PC version can look amazing in term of its graphics compared to its console counter parts.

I'm thinking I might get that first transformers game today, since it had very nice reviews and I missed it last time.

Also pondering TSW, MP3, and hotline miami with amazon ec coupons....

So, I heard that there were some problems with Darksiders II DLC causing the game to glitch. I picked up the complete pack from Amazon -- should I wait to redeem DSII DLC?

Too bad Steam removed my coupon for death rally :cry:

Mine was taken away, but now it's back, and better than ever!

90% off on the title Death Rally.
Can't be applied with other discounts.

(Valid November 30th, 2012 through January 31st, 2013)



Blur was also pulled from steam, wondering what Activision is doing.

Sounds like they're doing an EA. :-#

And a Girly Mahn.

Doooo Eeeet! Doooo Eeeet!

:cry:

Two of the DLC's crash very often for a lot of people. But since you have to select and play the DLC's seperately from the main game, those crashes shouldn't happen to you when only playing the main game.

Do you happen to know which DLC causes it to crash?
