Unless I'm misunderstanding what you mean by "arena combat game" (to me that sounds like Fairy Bloom Freesia), I don't think it's actually like that. It looks more like a typical 2v2 fighting game, somewhat in the vein of Skull Girls (there's even an optional DLC that uncensored certain naughty bits).

You're right I got my wires crossed with クロワルール.

So, I've betrayed the Steam religion and apparently upset the Allfather Gaben...

 

I purchased the Mass Effect Trilogy from Amazon last week and recovered an EA account long forgotten. After installing Origin and inputting the code, I continually get a popup message of "There's an issue with your account; it can't be logged in to more than one computer at once. You're now in offline mode" (paraphrase). 3 game downloads that should've taken 3-5 hours took almost 2 days because of the constant popup.

 

Does anyone else that uses Origin get this message?

 

On top of that, once they finally finished downloading, I tried to install Mass Effect, and I get a DirectX error: "There was an internal error. Installation failed."  However, I found a solution to that today.

 

 

I'm sorry Gaben.

I'm interested in playing one of the following games on Steam... any recommendations?

 

The Banner Saga

Borderlands 2 DLC (particularly Tina's RPG dlc)

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow

Kentucky Route Zero

Lego Marvel Super Heroes

Metro 2033

I assume you've completed the main BL2 game? If so, go directly to Tiny TIna and carry on with your assault.

That usually means someone is trying to, or has already, hacked your account.

Yep I finished BL2 when it released.  Guess I'll give the DLC a shot!

Steam downloads at my max speed, 20 megabit, 99% of the time. Therefore, I highly doubt Origin is any faster for me.

Monday morning discussion point: is Max Payne 3 actually worth playing?

I played a level and a half of it over the weekend and I was just bored by it. I'm sure diving around and doing that bullet-time trick was fun some time ago, but is that it? It has me working as a bodyguard for people I'd rather see dead, there's lens flare/fancy camera angle stuff going on and it nearly have me a headache.

Oh, and those cutscenes. It's no exaggeration to say that half of my playtime was spent watching cutscenes (w/ aforementioned "special" effects).

I'm tempted to delete it and reclaim that 30g of HD space.

What say ye?

 

Did you play Max Payne 1 + 2?

You honestly should play those first before you touch MP3.

 

Honestly - those were groundbreaking shooters and should've been played way back in the day. A lot of games have taken lots of cinematic cues & the Bullet-Time cue from Max.

I loved all of the Max Payne games, BTW.

 

I love the wit, depression, story, characters, locations, voice-acting, the TV shows from the first two - everything that makes Max what it is.

My internet is not even that fast, compared to people I know with Fios. Steam gets me like 4-5 mb/s which is trash,

5 megabytes is 40 megabits. Not that far off your speed there.

As a short (unexpectedly long) aside - I've been playing Remember Me (when I'm not in Warframe) a bit the past couple of days.  I'm enjoying it a lot so far.  I think I am about half-way through.  I really enjoy the aesthetic and the way they built the world.  Combat could be better, but it isn't bad.  

 

Spoiler

Yeah, I really dug the hell out of Remember Me.

 

It's definitely one of those games that the gameplay (with more skills + combos) and story gets just better & better as it goes along.

 

Oh - and I absolutely love the art design in this game.

And no, Rockstar still has not put the DRM-free versions back up on their website.


MysterD rant in 3, 2, 1...

 

Since you asked for it.... ;)

Well, it would be nice if Max Payne 1 + 2 were DRM-FREE on that website + also on GoG; and if it didn't have CEG on Steam-version.

Yeah, it starts off a little slow w/ the gameplay and story. One of my knocks against the game.

 

But once it freaking gets going w/ the gameplay and the story actually starts getting REALLY personal - holy crap, it's awesome.

Well depending on which one you get and a deal you can get on it it would be a great deal.  I was quoting you like MSRP pricing. 

 

For $270 you can get the 500GB one with Last of Us and I recommend the extra space for the PS Plus games.  For $50 you get PS Plus.  So that's $320.  Right now on PS Plus you'd get Remember Me and  few other games.  Over the course of a year you probably end up getting a crapload of games you would usually pay $5 or more for on PC.  If you just consider that instead of buying those games for PC you would just play them on PS3 you actually wouldn't really be spending much more (if any) than you probably already will spend this year.

I already have a vita and ps+...... and I've "bought" a bunch of free ps3 stuff through the webstore. I just need to pony up one of these days. I think around E3 they will drop the price again tho, so I can wait.

Sixty in March update:

 

I beat nine more games:

 

09: Worms Pinball (3/2; 6 Minutes played; 2 stars) - Don't know if I am going to count this.
10: 9.03 (3/2; 12 Minutes played; 5 stars?) - A nifty arty game about being sad and then going to a beach party for wizards. Oh, those wizards are all dead. Oh. They weren't wizards.
11: Dinner Date (3/2; 20 Minutes played; 4 stars) - Sit at a Table and Ponder Your Life: The Game
12: The Polynomial (3/2; 7 Minutes played; 4 stars) - Endless game, not sure if I should count it. Looks great.
13: GundeadliGne (3/2; 30 Minutes played; X stars) - Shoot stuff.
14: Telltale Texas Hold'Em (3/2; 15 Minutes played; 3 stars) - Pretty funny, but not as polished as their recent poker games.
15: Postal (3/3; 3 Hours played; 2 stars) - The sounds of hundreds of burning ostriches will haunt my dreams for all days.
16: Costume Quest Prototype (3/3; 13 Minutes played; 1 star) - Buggy but charming mess.
17: Save the Date (3/3; 15 Minutes played; 4 stars) - Interesting one. Well worth the investment (zero dollars and fifteen minutes)
