Street Fighter Alpha 3? Awesome game, so many characters, so much to it... I don't know how the newer one could compete with that.

Terraria - $1 (Steam),  X3: Terran Conflict - $2 (Steam)Fable: The Lost Chapters - $2 (Steam)

Dunno. I still prefer Super Street Fighter 2 on the SNES to the new ones, lol.

I'm someone who's generally against the graphics of the new Street Fighters. High quality spriting is a dying art, that's why I'm stoked that Guilty Gear X2 #Reload is on sale on GOG for $2.39. :D

I have too big of a backlog. Can you guys help a fellow CAG out by deciding which game I should play?

Nice deal on Dead Rising 2. If you buy both DR2 and DR2 OTR, the price is about the same as Steam's was during the winter sale, but it'll be missing the DLC.

Lost Planet 2 is tempting, but I'm not sure if it's worth it.


What was the combo price for the Winter Sale? Can't believe I missed it. But from what people said, it doesn't seem too important to have both DR2 and OTR. I'm thinking of going OTR just for the un-restricted sandbox.

Throw a dart at all of those games you have only spent 0.3-2hours on and you have about a 60% shot of hitting something I would tell you to finish right away.

Both games, all DLC for $9.99. It was the very definition of an anomaly in Capcom sales.


EDIT: You're in luck.

Wow, that is bizaare, thanks. I guess if OTR and DR2 are so similar I feel alright getting OTR for $6 with 4 in my pocket for something else. Though it makes me a little concerned with how problematic the game seems from the Steam forums though.

Yeah, that's not a bad idea. OTR sounds better because it has the photography system while DR2 doesn't, and since the DLC doesn't seem that big of a deal, it's a good purchase to just grab OTR.

I'm picky though and just want everything, lol.

This! I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one who hates the SFIV graphics.

I don't know the complaints on the steam forums. OTR2 runs okay/fine on my venerable Phenom II X3 720 BE @ 3.2GHz & GTX 260, I think I dropped the AA to 4x (maybe 2x) MSAA to improve my framerate.

I dream in yellow comic sans.

It rubs the lotion on it's skin or else it gets Bad Rats again.

VVVVVV can be completed in less than 2 hours. It's a cakewalk. Enjoy it.

This sounds like a fun game to play with one's PS2 library.

There's really no point in buying DR2 -- just get OTR. I got it because the pack was $10 with the OTR DLC (which is probably superfluous, anyway). If that 20% off promo stacks then $6 for OTR is the better deal.

The second one isn't as good as the first one :)


So, is it the same case as with lost planet 2? Can you even get the first one on Steam?

According to the big activation list on steam support, you can activate it.

Lost Planet: Extreme Condition CD Keys in this format: 1AB2C-D3FGH-456I7-JK8LM-NOP9Q
Lost Planet: Colonies Edition CD Keys are not accepted on Steam

However I don't know where to buy it from unless you want to get it retail, which may or may not be used.
And for some reason I didn't think it was on Steam.

There are two versions of the first available on steam. No idea what the difference is.

DMC 2 is AWFUL! Don't bother (but, if you do play it, just press square to win). play DMC 3 instead. (in fact, play it twice than play 2)

Wasn't DMC 3 one of the most difficult games of all times? I only played DMC 2 back then (don't know if a bad game, only played an hour or so and was VERY boring)... and just bought DMC 4 from GMG... that one is GREAT. I should try DMC 3 after ;)

I remain of the opinion that DR2 is a better experience because DR2's plot is better. And sandbox mode has no value to me because the basic zombie killing in DR isn't worth sticking around for. It's the challenge of the time limit that makes the game worth it to me. Plus, the added zone and bosses and one reworked boss just aren't good enough to make up for the loss of that good boss.

But the games are TOO similar, such that it's practically pointless to play them both.

Actually just spent the last 5 or so hours with it. It's probably bundle fodder but looking at it, thought it would scratch an itch I had at that particular moment, and it did.

It's a little bit Chuzzle a little bit Puzzle Quest but much more manic than either. The game is essentially grinding away in the dungeon until you build up enough gold/wood/stone to continue your upgrades and get further in. Long before I finished upgrading my armor I had a run that came up with 9.7 million so I figured it should be a cakewalk to finish at that point, but I still haven't managed to get the 10 million needed to finish the game. The end game is very much a matter of just getting a lucky run plus a good board which can end up being mildly frustrating but it really doesn't get in the way of the addictiveness.

That's the thing with it, since each run only lasts a couple minutes, there's a very strong "One more run" aspect which can easily make the hours disappear on you. You're always just a couple runs away from the next upgrade, and once you've finished all your upgrades, it's just one more try to finish the game.

It will probably show up in a bundle at some point, but if it looks like something you want to play right now, I'd say it's worth it for the price. Gave me a solid day's entertainment so far, and I still need to settle in and get that final run to clear the game at some point.

Not if you get the special edition. It's much much much easier than the original DMC3. I raced through DMC3 so I could lead right into DMC4, and oops, it's a prequel. It's still definitely worth playing.
