I highly recommend grabbing Battlefront 2. The PC version is NOT a port and it's unbelievably well done and better than the console version. Not only that, the modding community is awesome, and there's some incredible content out there, like...


Battlefront Conversion Pack
-25 new maps
-New era (KotOR)
-Five new clone legions
-Three new unit classes added to the original classes.
-Over 40 new heroes for CW and GCW, and over 30 heroes for KotOR alone
-Six new game modes
-Nearly 30 new vehicles
-UnOfficial 1.3 patch (includes visual upgrades of 1.2 with shell upgrades)



The "25 new maps" are all the maps from Battlefront one converted to work in BF2. So, uh, yeah. Buy it. Multiplayer is still alive and well, too.
 
 

 


Hmm... who to believe.  :-k

I thought nothing of it before, looks interesting now. How many play this mod, I'd hate to get on this and find out not alot play it.

Haha, I meant that there really wasn't a big difference in graphic quality overall. FPS...pshh

Is there still a separate thread for buying and sharing group packs? I'm interested in Castle Crashers if anyone is getting a group set up.

Hrm, just found via Kotaku: THE PSYCHOLOGY BEHIND STEAM’S SUMMER SALE

  • Random Reward Schedules

 

 

 

Fresh card-sets need staggered reese's for a multitude of raisins. Where is Rayman Origins for $5? Ain't nobody got time to wait it out for a week. And Stealth Bastard likely won't be part of a flash sale and that cements its DLC at 50%. Those are my only targets. Zimmerman blows.

I'm not talking about the lack of features (which I can understand being currently absent), but referring to the fact that earlier today I was having server errors practically every time I refreshed a page (happened multiple times while trying to update the OP, which wound up breaking and having to be partly redone). A few other glitches on top of that and I hope you can understand my frustration :cry:

 

Yeah, we don't really have any idea what John is doing, but we don't really need to know either. However if you're having serious issues make sure to try and post a reply to the CAG 3.0 so he at least knows about it (Though for the most part it's usually reported).

So, not related to Steam (other than as an excuse why I am spending time here instead of actually doing work)

 

I really hate days I have to cover customer support. Had somebody send an e-mail asking to no longer be contacted. Our support system sends an automatic reply telling people their request was received and their problem should be resolved within 24 hours. She then sends another e-mail complaining that she got another e-mail after requesting to be removed from our list. I responded personally explaining about the automated reply and assuring her that her e-mail was placed on our do-not contact list.

 

She then complained that I shouldn't have sent her a response if we really had blacklisted her e-mail...

 

But now the day is done and...

 

there were no new games I wanted to buy...

 

Now the question becomes, do I start into one of the Fallouts I bought yesterday, continue playing Two Worlds 2, or just dick around until the new flash sales.

 

I don't really want to get too invested in a game right now because if Skyrim has a good sale I want to jump right into playing it, but there are some games in my backlog that are itching to be played.

My steam cash disappeared thanks to purchasing SMT 4 for 3DS for my Bday (since the game comes out on my birthday) on the upside. Best buy gave me $40 in reward zone certificates for purchasing Bioshock Infinite instead of $20. Now they charged me $5 instead of when I ordered it.

Got a copy of Organ Trail for myself and one for my friend. Considering getting Mirror's Edge and I'll probably end up getting the Terraria 4-pack.

I still haven't really bothered with cards so far. I just play what I want and if it happens to have cards, then I'll get them. But I just noticed I got my first foil after 9 drops from Dust: An Elysian Tail. It's the SmoBop, Fidget, & Bopo card. There weren't any on the market when I first checked, but now there's one at $8.05.

I'd say either continue playing TWII or pick up a short game (or 3) which only lasts a few hours long to tide you over until the inevitable Skyrim sale. (Unless you are only interested at 75% off... 'cause that's not going to happen.)

Mirror's Edge is awesome. The gun parts of it aren't that great, but the feel of running around and playing parkour princess is awesome.

 

Is there xbox controller support for this?

 

 

Regardless of blocks, feints, and the three different swing types, the combat is still shallow. I am, however, comparing the game to War of the Roses, which is a completely valid comparison as WotR is the closest "rival" of Chivalry. I came across some melee fighters that weren't idiots about LMB spamming, but across multiple servers, you come across that a LOT. If I'm getting MVP multiple times in my first handful of games, there are a lot of fucktards playing this game. It's just not a complex combat system at all, and many times it feels like rock paper scissors with who's gonna block, who's gonna feint, who's gonna attack. Again, comparing it to WotR, which I honestly believe did a vastly better job at this.

It's hilarious to me every time I see people say "I've never had lag" in a game. Congratulations, but the other 90% of people playing this game have.

And my preconceptions of the game are being misunderstood by you. I bought Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 for $40. I enjoy "dumb fun" games, so when you're seeing my "preconception" as a negative thing, you're completely off base. I've already recommended Chivalry to people before playing it because of what I've heard about it, so I never had negative preconceptions about this game. Why do you think I bought it? :\
 
 

Being in Hawaii only sucks (badly) for lag/ping when I can't find servers nearby (I have a hard time finding close WotR servers, for instance). There are loads of west coast servers for Chivalry, so every game I played was between 50 and 100 ping, which is great. The rubberbanding issues are not on my end. That said, I'm gonna see if there are any official servers on the west coast and give those a shot too.

 

I didn't read all of idiot's posts TLDR, but I agree with his take after having played both. WotR is very close the M&B Warband which I love. But chivalry is good too. Definitely pick them up if on the fence when they go on sale again.

 

So any recommendations for Sanctum or Oregon Trail?

 

Also is there a way for the outline of quoted posts to show better? Other than the indented paragraph, I can barely tell what I wrote and what I quoted.

75% insta buy and do a dance. I'll even post it to YouTube

66% insta buy but no dance. You didn't earn it, GabeN

50% think about it for a moment, but it'll be a buy

40% like the flash sale... sorry GabeN, but you had your chance. Maybe GMG or GG will have Legendary for $30 or under eventually.

I have it on Origin and it works fine with an xbox controller.

 

Is Mirror's Edge actually $5.99 on the US store? For once in my life, I have seen the NZ store be cheaper on a game

I know Xbox 360 controllers work natively with the game. I can't speak of other third party controllers.

Killing Floor doesn't have any "expansions." The developer of the game runs events during the seasonal steam sales like this one.

 

There are 11000+ people playing it right now.

I doubt it, but anything is possible.  If you want to pick it up for the cheapest that you can, it's probably best to wait until the last day of the sale.

30% off voucher available at GMG right now: http://blog.playfire...i-and-more.html

 

Of note:

$21 Civ V: Brave New World

$21 Mortal Kombat Komplete

$14 Bioshock Infinite Season Pass

$8.40 Final Fantasy 7

 

All cheaper than current Steam sale prices and likely that we won't see Steam beat them this sale.

 

I wish MK Komplete would get even cheaper. ;)

Has anyone here played Resident Evil 6 yet?  I loved RE4 and never got past an hour in RE5.  I've read very mixed things about RE6.  It's $12 on GG UK site with 20% discount, and considering this is Capcom I'm tempted to bite.  Any opinions?

I'm in the same boat.  I'd love to play Dishonored, but I can't justify spending $10 for a game that will probably go on the backlog and could possibly see a GOTY edition with all the DLC included.

 

My rule of thumb = 75% off or better is the "okay" price for backlogging games.

 

Dishonored is just NOT a game that should go into the backlog.

If you are actually buying it this time around (below 75% off), play it ASAP.

 

I should note: Dishonored is my favorite game of 2012.
