Okay how's this for beer talk, I like to buy beer in Oregon where I don't have to pay sales tax and then drink it while playing EA And Activision games and complaining about how money grubbing they are.



Weird, I didn't think you could buy BEER anymore, I thought Miller stopped producing it.

Get the hell out of here right now. :lol:

Also, apparently there's another free GOTM for IGN Prime subscribers, AI War: Fleet Command. Received my email about it at 8:14PM today.

Here's the page: http://www.ign.com/prime/promo/ai-war

Well the free AI War sorta, kinda is one. You just can't work the Prime system like you used to be able to.

Has anyone played Proteus? I still have no idea what's going on but I have to admit that I kind of dig it. It's pretty serene and produces a nice calming effect on me. Of course I did just eat dinner at this brewpub.

You don't even miss the gun and map. It seems destined for a bundle, but definitely an interesting experience when that happens and all of you pick it up.

I can't tell which parts of this post are on topic and which are off.

Is AI War anything like the AC series?

If it's all the same to you, I'll hold off until the GOTY edition with the gun and the map.

I was lying anyway. This game could really use a gun and a map. Of course circle strafing is pretty difficult, but a VATS like system could do wonders.

Due to the "you can't work the prime system like you used to" comment, I'd assume that they're talking about IGN prime.

4 Pack is only $14.99 on Amazon right now. Very likely a price mistake since one copy is supposed to cost that much.

With EA's track record on competitive multiplayer servers, this is a relevant concern.

Thanks for the heads up. This game got totally panned on Rock Paper Shotgun, but I still couldn't resist for some reason.

Age of Empires II HD re-release is coming next month on April 9th and will be Steam exclusive. It's being done by Hidden Path (Defense Grid and Counter-Strike: GO) and includes the content from the expansion as well as online play. There will be a 10% discount for pre-purchases on Steam, but it doesn't appear to be in the store yet.

With Microsoft's recent touch based hardware releases it honestly surprises me that this is Steam exclusive for now and not also on their store.

Yeah, I recall some 20% Gamefly coupon a few days ago, be warned GameFly coupons are almost always single-use. GFDMAR20 I'm not sure when it ends.

Nvidia announces Physx and Apex support for Playstation 4

For those of you who don't know, the PS4 runs a customized AMD APU (APU=CPU+GPU in a single die/package). I guess it's more important for Nvidia to get PhysX into next gen consoles than it is to maintain it as an edge for their GPUs. (Imo, don't take this to read that retail AMD GPUs will have official PhysX support).

I kind of want the HD'ized AOE II but I can't see paying $20 $18 for a 14 year old game that I used to own but lost the damned disc.

I guess I will wait for a Tony deal or maybe so how low they go on the summer sale.

I don't think I ever played AOE II. I remember liking the original AOE, though I didn't get too far in (too busy commit to playing deeper games at the time).

I must have missed the part of this discussion where it was $18. Really? I still have my old Age of Kings and Myths fancy box I paid $50 several years ago (the only thing I didn't already have was the Titans expansion for AoM, but I was atoning for my earlier acquisition of um, skull-and-crossbones versions of the AoeII games).

EDIT: Oh, I found it. The store listing is here: http://store.steampo...nr=1_4_4__106_1

Wait, the PS4 is going to feature Apu? Thank you, come again!

How is the PC Port of Max Payne 3. Lets forget about the 35 GB Install, how is it port wise besides that.

$13.50 is tempting.

Really shitty weekend deal this time. Max Payne 3 was good, but already got it from Amazon. And I hate Soccer Manager to the very core of existence, so that wastes a weekend slot.

Yep, I'll be waiting for that sweet sweet 75% sale on this and BG II:EE (probably Winter 2013 sale).

So Games for Windows is pretty much dead now. Maybe they'll shut it down completely and give me a Steam key for my 10 cent copy of AoE III Collection. I can dream, right?

Really a shame, I would have liked to see GFWL have some success - at the very least as an alternative platform for distribution and community. Especially for console converts - it was nice to have achievements be in one place, etc. Their pricing and lack of content really killed them though.

They've actually been re-purposing it a bit for Windows 8. I bought 4 Elements II when it was on sale on the Windows 8 app store and that logs into your GFWL/Xbox account and has XBox achievements.
