Potions help eliminate the need to flee. I don't fault the game for it's emphasis on methodical tactics. My dislike for the game lies entirely on my impatience.
But the opening cinematic is the best I've ever seen. Seriously. Look it up.


That opening always makes my nipples tingle with joy, so epic

Got the following:

 

GTA 5

Halo 4

Fight Night Champion

Dead Rising: Off the Record

Gears 3

 

Contemplating:

 

Skate 2...  Who thinks I should?  Does it have split screen?

 

Btw.. First time/Long time.

No split screen on skate 2, at least from what I remember.

 

skate 2 and all skate games in general are great.  Can't go wrong for 4 dollars.

PBS is always broke. There is also a problem downloading previously purchased content, but I think that is new.


No I mean the Cheap Ass Gamer notifications, they haven't worked for a few days.

Witcher 2 is hard because of difficulty. Dark Souls is hard because of wonky combat.


Dark Souls' combat is fine. Witcher's is the wonky one.

Also smh at it being 1st person

Where have I been all this time? I've got to pick some of these up. I played the Split/Second demo way back and loved it.. so seems like a no brainer for me now. 

 

Sorry if this has been asked recently, but I only looked a couple of pages back. Is Skate 2 any good? My experience in the genre is limited to Tony Hawk 2 for N64 (which I loved).

(and yes I saw one comment already on this page)

 

And finally, if there's really anyone out there that's never played Portal 2. Buy it right now.

As far as I know, it's a Far Cry game in name only, not made by the developer of the main series. It's supposedly not very good.

 

I own FC: Instincts Predator. It sucks.

Wow, you guys are not kidding. This demo is terrible. None of the controls are like Far Cry Classic and the graphics are just sad.

 

What? That's the best 360 game ever. Aged really well too. I could spend all day playing course maps online or race maps or making my own maps or xombies or cop n robbers or jaws or tremors or predator mode or anything. I think it is one of the few games outside of Halo to have custom game modes created by the community that you won't find in other shooters.

 

Then the demo is terrible?  All I see here are multiplayer games with only two "Capture the flag" games available. There's no single player campaign in this. Is the actual game different?

He was expressing dismay at someone else saying Witcher is first person. We know its third person.

The demo (rated 1,337 times on XBL) is multiplayer only with 1 map and 1 game mode I think. I'm surprised people are still playing an 8 year old demo.

 

Full game has 2 campaigns. Thanks to the map maker (actual maker, not editor like Halo series) and great community, there are over 4,000 custom maps (plus a ton not on that website, including about 10 from me) . 5 game modes that come with the game and a bunch of community variants (similar to how people made their own games in Halo 2 before you had a ton of custom game options).

 

The achievements are rough though. I was able to get all the multiplayer achievements without boosting, but I'm not sure if the game is still active anymore, especially with everybody using party chat. Some community variants would be completely ruined with party chat. I probably played several thousand hours of multiplayer. The offline achievements suck because difficulty achievements don't stack and they put collectables (300 I think) in ridiculous locations.

How is Dishonored? I've watched a Quick Look video and checked out reviews and it looks like it could be good. 

 

Also, how is the second season of TWD so far? I thought the first season was amazing and I'd expect it wouldn't live up to the excellent intense/emotional experience of the first season. Is it very good so far or should I hold out?

BioShock Infinite DLCs are a gold deal, but the pass isn't (currently?) part of it.

Already picked up Duck Tales and Split/Second (I went all Disney). Debating whether to get Pac Man Museum, but I already have CE on the Arcade disc.

Interesting... The season pass is still a much better deal. Weird. You'd think they'd drop $5 off the SP or something...

Bioshock 1 and 2 are also on sale for $4.99 each for Gold.  (Don't know if those were in the results Bloomy posted)

It begins, the great DLC sale of our time!!!

Hope something good goes on sale. Since the GWG program unless a game is really cheap I will hold out. DLC on ther other hand I'm all for.
Got nothing but the Walking dead s2 pass since I got a bunch of Telltale games on PSN for a $1.

Ahhh I don't know if I should finally pick these up or not... I only have 20 gb of HD space left though and a lot of that has to go to Dark Souls 2 DLC.

My Clementine is a hardass in the game. Very enjoyable, and $7.50 is a bargain for the season pass.

You have to either buy a Western Digital drive and hack it yourself or buy a pre-hacked one from an Amazon/Ebay seller. Somehow someone got hold of a 500GB security sector early this year, previously the limit was 320GB.


Is this a banable off fence? Already lost an xbox during the Oman wars but I need space to purchase more things from Microsoft.

I didn't check for those.  My thought process went in a different direction - I was checking DLCs of other daily deals whose DLCs weren't part of last week's sale.  I've seen the Gold markdown on BioShock's page come and go with refreshes, but haven't seen BioShock 2's Gold price yet, or if any of its DLC is part of it.  Not saying I don't believe you, just saying the web site takes a bit of time to settle in.

I went down the same DLC checking path and found nothing. When I circled back around to bioshock 1&2 the discounts are there now but no DLC at the moment.

Thanks for the replies. The tone of TWD season 2 is a little different but I still like episode 1 so far. I think I'll grab the season pass.

It looks like you can approach Dishonored a few different ways (total stealth, sniping guys out, etc.) Unless it gets repetitive further in, I'll probably pick that up too.

Speaking of sales, did anything drop yet?

As far as I know no one has ever been banned for using a modded hard drive, but obviously I am not MS so YMMV.  There are many folks in the DigiEx thread who have been using them for a long time on Live with no problems.  I'm about to pull the trigger on getting a WD5000LPVX so I can try this out myself.
