Crysis 3 worth it for $5?

I think so - hell yes!

 

It's a combo of many of the things people liked about:

Crysis 1 (bigger wide-open spaces for shootouts, jungles)

and Crysis 2 (vertical areas + shootouts, C3 runs on a better version of this engine).

 

Plus, C3 can be played much stealthier now, since we now have a BOW always in your inventory.

 

Though, Crysis 3's story and characters still are a major far cry from anything actually worthwhile. Story and characters are just there to get you to the next incredible shootout and to keep you drooling at the incredible technical graphical eye-candy.

I love the Lego games and I'm almost .... well I'm not a kid .. :)

 

They just get better with each game. Really fun games .. more fun if you can play co-op with someone.

 

TT Games and Lego just keep getting better and better at making these games. While typically I hate when companies "rehash" games over and over again .. each Lego games seems new and fresh even though it is typically the same mechanics and gameplay.

 

Personally I think they are pretty good games.

 

 

They aren't hard, but they also aren't geared specifically towards kids. In fact, some of them might be too hard for younger children. They are action/adventure games in which puzzle solving is the focus. Chances are if you like that type of game and whatever license is attached, then you'll enjoy. 

 

All characters are unlocked through gameplay. New characters mean new abilities, and once you get a few you can return to a previously beaten level and use the new abilities to access alternate pathways or hidden stuff. No idea about Deadpool though, as LEGO Marvel is one of the few I have yet to play.

Thanks for the input guys.  Sounds like it would still be a fun game for an older guy like me, especially being a Marvel fan.  $10 seems like a fair price, so I think I am going to go ahead and bite on this one.

It's actually pretty good if you know what you're getting into and play it the right way.  I think it caught everyone off guard by not being what was expected at release.  But people playing lately without the wrong preconceptions as to what it is seem to rate it as pretty OK.  You've just got to go back through this very thread.  Everyone suggesting it's bad has, like you, never played it and is going off its rep.  Those that have played it recently actually seem to like it.

Yeah, I liked The Bureau - even despite my complaints w/ it.

 

Its combat is pretty good, if you like Mass Effect 2+3 & want something w/ more tactical shooting than the ME series & you actually enjoy micro-managing every move for your party members. I played on Squaddie, BTW - and I still had a tough time w/ it, at times. Lots of reloading saves, my party dying, and even sometimes I'd survive a mission but a squad-mate died (when squaddies die, they get perma-death'ed).

 

I just wish the story and character development was better. Seriously - until the last 1/4th of the game, it often felt in those departments predictable, cliche, lacking, and/or what should've been the "pay-off" moment in a scene just wasn't executed well at all. I wish story-wise, the 1st 3/4th's of the game was as interesting & intriguing as well-executed as the last 1/4th of the game.

 

Overall - solid game, but nothing special.

 

EDIT:

This!  People with no firsthand experience all seem to be parroting "it sux" and everyone who's played it thinks it's at least decent.

I still think people see the words XCOM in the sub-title and then say, "This isn't the XCOM that I know and love, so this sucks!"

I bought it for my spare/daughter's account because I know she'll like it. (Plus, I can play it too when she's gone to bed =P)

Yeah, I was so pissed about this when I found out, there is really no reason for them to tax NC either, I have researched it and cannot find an official reason that they decided in Jan of this year that they would start taxing us beginning in Feb. I mean, they have fought the state and won in 2010 and they still don't have a physical presence in the state. I'm even considering canceling my prime sub, as I will be ordering significantly less from Amazon now. Really disappointed, thought we were safe at least until after 2016.

I already have DK1 from a previous GOG bundle. I hit "get it now" and they sent me an email with a gift link to give away.

 

They really want to give it away to as many as people as possible.

It was the same with MA and the tax ... they "technically" have a presence here but it is not shops or stores .. they have a research office in Cambridge and bought robotics company Kiva System in Woburn so this was the "loophole" the state used to get them to start charging tax ...

 

Whatever even with the tax it is still typically cheaper to get stuff online.

Same in Tennessee - started taxing here too in 2014.  I suspect Amazon feels they no longer need the tax-free status to keep sales up, so they're stopping the fight.  It will probably start taxing in most states over the next few years.

Amazon has a fulfillment center in Tennessee. That's likely why they have to charge tax there.

Just to clarify, this isn't Amazon deciding to be big meanies to CAGs all of a sudden by collecting taxes.  They are being forced to do this in many/most cases by the state itself.  Blame your local government if you're going to point any fingers.

 

Amazon tax

Yeah, they've been here for at least a couple of years. Newegg has been charging tax for a while now, too (they're in Memphis.) It sucks.

It was 19"97", not 20"11" like I thought, but someone got it.

 

Edit: Duke Nukem Forever.

 

Yeah, DNF is the obvious answer, and I too read the clue as "the year that it was released".
