Thanks everyone for all of the input on TSW.  I didn't intend to start another heated debate but was thinking for $10 I might finally bite.  You people wanting TSW on Steam need to stop bringing that up and making my decision more difficult.   :D I too prefer my backlog on Steam but I don't think it matters so much with an MMO.  Maybe I am wrong.

 

In my fav WoW guild I was always a noob... well Respected Noob or ‚ÄčVeteran Noob or Noobcake. The guild leader was Head Noob.

 

 

WTF did you find decent TSW info?  I've spent a good deal of time looking and I can't find anything remotely approaching ElististJerks (WoW) quality of info/discussion.  The most I've found is that it's hard to go too wrong in TSW, and there are some weapon focus pairs that are not a good idea.

 

An entire group made up of noobs?  That is where I want to be.  I want to be a Noobcake.  

 

No I didn't find lots of information but was not really looking and didn't realize it didn't exist.  I'm so used to just Googling a game and finding lots of in depth information I just assumed something would be out there for TSW.

 

I would just like to point out that I have no clue what anyone is talking about.  I just run around in my metrosexual clothes and shotgun blast zombies in TSW. 

 

I believe I will adopt this style of game play.  I think I can pull this off.

EDIT: Oh yeah, almost spaced this. Regarding Black Mirror, there's a comment on Amazon from someone saying that, although the usual tricks and fixes (no-cd, etc) didn't solve the problems, he was able to find a patch from some Bulgarian site that did work by fixing the sound/static issue. Excellent news, but unfortunately that's all he said. No specifics to help track it down. If anyone has the slightest clue what patch he's referring to, I'm sure it'd be welcome news around here.

Seems that some sound files are corrupted.

 

A user of that forum had a fix up on dropbox, but it is currently down.  I registered in order to contact that user, but have to wait to send a pm.

Could someone confirm whether or not Assassin's Creed 2 Deluxe Edition and Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood redeem on uPlay?

I would honestly prefer it if they did.

If anyone here cares, Amazon is now selling a digital code for 2400 Cartel Coins in Star Wars: The Old Republic for $19.99 plus you get an exclusive pet the Umbral Blurrg.

 

http://www.amazon.co...c/dp/B00DIIZ15A

 

*Edit: Found a picture of it: http://dulfy.net/201...ral-blurrg-pet/

 

I will probably buy it because I am addicted and because I already got the pets from Best Buy, Walmart and Europe. :-P

I'm somewhat impressed with the willingness to stay off-topic for so long.

 

This thread needs like a moderator 24/7, if not this always happens. Makes it hard to browse to check for worthy deals, hazardous at times if you want to avoid spoilers on a game you are looking forward to buy.

I really want to play tsw, really... But I'm planning on buying xcom (I'm a huge fan) so everything else will be backlogged. But next sale I'll get it

Btw, I don't know why, but tsw somewhat reminds me of veil of darkness. I really don't know why

 

We'll have that Firaxsis pack for $19.99 again on 7/4. It comes with Civ V Gold, XCOM, and Civ IV Complete. If you're looking for a la carte and see it super cheap somewhere I'd snag it.

 

Is there a free trial method for GW2? I'd try it myself, but the game is just too damn expensive.

Personally I don't play MMOs for the combat system normally. SWTOR, TSW, GW2, even a F2P like Mabinogi... it's all the same old active time combat that I've seen over and over again. I do like TSW's combat a lot more than others because the TPS style, high mobility, and combo system makes it fresh and clean. I've never found TSW's combat anything but smooth (SWTOR is way clunkier), but it's also not my favorite aspect of the game. Tera's combat (as flawed as people might say the game is) is way funner, but the storytelling, almost non-existent voice overs, etc really hurt it.

But yeah, I don't know. I watch GW2 combat videos and it's just a bunch of spamming the same attacks like in every MMO (including TSW). Nothing wrong with that, but I don't see what's unique and so much smoother about it. Then again, I'm not a big social player either, so if I wanted a high fantasy RPG with better combat, Divinity 2 is great...


EDIT: And I have to add... 3 hours is no time to experience TSW's combat system. Probably similar to GW2, it really matters which active abilities you use on your 7-skill set. The inner ring of abilities is only scratching the surface of abilities. There's a noticeable change in combat style between the various weapons, and there's even big differences in combat styles within the same weapons because of the massive variety of skill trees that open up loads of different skills to experiment with.

The game really encourages experimentation and combinations more than any other MMO I've seen or played. 3 hours gives you no insight into the skill trees, ability combinations, and combat system of TSW at all.

 

PM me if you want to try GW2 and I'll just give you my account info to use and try out.

 

Really would like to know if [Oh So Fine And Dandy Bundle](http://www.amazon.co...nd dandy bundle) will be coming back before the sale ends. All the games in the bundle are available, so it's difficult to understand why the bundle isn't :error: .

 

That bundle was only on sale for 1 week, I thought the time bounding was listed in the OP.

Cheers,
Tony

Just bought two copies of The Secret World for my husband and myself.

 

Yeah, I would have preferred a Steam version, but its $10! I can deal with the hassle of having to remember to go to my Amazon account to download for that price.

 

Is the cash shop for this game prohibitively expensive? I have no problem buying a few items here and there, DLC,  but I ain't paying no $100 for a tshirt for my ingame character.

It's $20 (base price) on Steam, so $5 or less would be a good price. ;)

Yeah, I got a Uplay email today.  I don't really house much of importance on my UPlay account and I use a random password generator so I should be fine once I change it.  I do expect some sort of Oops Sony style concession though.  If they can give out their games with GPUs they sure can give me something free for compromising my info.

Agreed, I don't think Ubisoft is in any kind of financial state that they can afford to handle this badly and lose more customers than they already will.  Hopefully they will at least give us something like a 2 week window to choose one of their less expensive/older games for free.

Also I would still like confirmation as to whether or not Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood can be activated on Uplay.

Yeah, not that many people use Uplay so the backlash isn't that big. For Sony, it's an entirely different story.. a lot of people use PSN so it was understandable why they gave out free games.

 

Most Ubisoft will do is probably a coupon code.
