Okay, gamers - question time.

 

1. What's missing from that SD "Some" DLC bundle?

2. And what DLC's all the ones that I really want from SD actually ARE in this "Some" DLC Bundle?

3. And what DLC's all the ones that I really want from SD actually ARE NOT AT ALL in this "Some" DLC Bundle?

Buy base game with EC code. Wait til next 80% off SD sale on Steam, buy the 3 or 4 DLC that are worth it for just a few bucks more.

You will probably want to get Year of the Snake, Zodiac Tournament, and Nightmare in North Point.  The rest are vehicles / costumes / experience boosts.

Sleeping Dogs DLCs that you want..

  - Nightmare in North Point

  - Zodiac Tournament

  - Year of the Snake

  - Wheels of Fury

 

Those are the DLCs adding some playtime and not just cosmetic aspects to the game. The Wheels of Fury being a crazy vehicle should be activated later in your playtime not to make it too easy at the start by having the big monster wheels to start the game.

So, if anyone wants something -  make some interesting and appealing offers to me.

I saw someone mention LoK Blood Omen 2 supports the Xbox 360 controller natively, do any of the other LoK games support controllers? And I think k he mentioned the Thief games, can those be played with controllers?

Another Guild Wars question.

Would Guild Wars 1 be worth checking out at this point? Is it something you can solo?

Also, despite warnings that I won't see much end content in Guild Wars 2 without a group to play with, is the game pretty solo-able?

You can solo almost all of the content in GW1. There are a few missions which are much, much easier with other players, and there is some end game content that pretty much requires a full team of human players. The gameworld is fully instanced except for player gathering areas like outposts and cities. There are henchmen/heroes to round out your party to allow you to solo. (solo meaning only one human player, not one party member)

 

GW2 is more WoW-ish in that most of the game is not instanced. Only your characters personal story-line, dungeons, and certain events are instanced. You can solo most of the open world stuff and all of the story-line stuff except the end.

 

And despite the other posting claiming there is no power creep, there most certainly is. You can read all about it on guild wars guru or the official boards. It is pretty much the biggest turn-off (besides massive grinding) for GW1 players. Again, GW1 horizontal creep, GW2 vertical creep. WoW is an example of vertical creep.

Holy cow, now Sleeping Dogs for $3 after EC coupon?

 

This EC sale has been fantastic. I definitely hope it continues next year.

 

P.S. If there are any kind souls out there that have a bunch of coupons left and could grab me Sleeping Dogs I would be eternally grateful. As I am already grateful to the amazing people that have helped me out lately =D

But none of the DLC is really necessary to buy for Sleeping Dogs. Even the story DLC isn't that good, it's just filler stuff that can be skipped.

Hmm, you could be right. I probably have enough backlog for 2 or 3 years as it is.

You really don't need the DLC.   You really don't.

 

If, after you have done everything in the base game and you really really want more...

By then there will be another 90% off sale and you can pick up the 2 or 3 DLCs that look interesting, based on your knowledge of the game.

 

Even the "must have" story DLCs are not as good as the base game.  You will get many times the $3 worth of fun from the base game.  You can throw another buck or two at DLCs later if you really need to.

 

Don't miss out the base game just because the DLC isn't complete enough.  You don't need it.

 

- Me and the ninjas all agree -

I'm not posting my haul list, but would like to post my thanks list.

My thanks go out to:

  • Tony
  • Mystery EA lurker guy
  • Namco Bandai and Lahdpal
  • Rockstar Games
  • 505 Games
  • Fellow CAGs that keep this thread fun and entertaining

And my no-thanks go out to:

  • All the other pubs that either didn't show up for the party or barely made their presence known
  • All the other CAGs (you know who you are)

 

 

And 200px-2_Gold_Stars.svg.png go out to asheskitty and Sepioth for being more organized and generous than I could ever hope to be.

Not sure if I'm a "fellow CAG that keeps it entertaining" on the thanks list or if I'm getting no thanks for being on the "all the other CAGs" list.

{ponders}

 

Do Ashes and Seph each get a star? Or both get two stars?

Or what?

I already own the base-game and played through it, quite some time ago - and it's awesome!

That's why I was asking about the DLC's.

 

Where's a 90% off glitch sale on SD and its DLC content like the one Steam had once that I miss'd out on, when I want/need it?? ;)

 

EDIT:

i meant as in buy now for that or wait for tony magic that lost some lluster ?

Buy the Have Faith Bundle and give me the Time Trials DLC code.

And you take NOTHING! :P

I offered to help someone get mp3 + la noire for $3, but they didn't respond, so I offered the coupons to someone else. Then later on he/she did respond and now I am out of coupons and feel a bit bad about it. Can someone help out?

I'll give fear 1,2 or 3 to someone that helps him out.

 

 

 

Edit: Gep88 offered to help out, so did themadgamer and AionTelos. So it should be sorted now, thanks guys.

To echo what the other said the DLC is crap. There's only a few story DLC and they are short and not great and easy enough to get on a later sale if you must have them. The rest are useless cosmetic crap or even worse cheats that make the game too easy.

 

I bought all the DLC when it went on price mistake on Steam and regretted it. I ended up figuring out how to disable the cheat DLCs and I'm not the only one who went mucking with the files to do that either.

I've got like 4 coupons left but nothing else that I want if someone needs something

 

just looked back in my history and turns out I have like 8 coupons. I think that happened when steam went down and I went a bit crazy buying cheap games on amazon.
