Oh yeah, I saw that yesterday. Strange shit.

 

All right, caught up on today's pages and the only thing worthwhile (not really) is free Peggle. :-&

 

Ok why do I type the puking smiley, and it shows up in edit, but when I submit the post it turns into a different smiley? CAG is broken.

Not a bad Bundlestars bundle.  I'll probably pick that one up.  Already have Lords of Football and the DLC for it because I'm an idiot but the rest is new for me.

FootLOL has been in a bunch of bundles already, Actua Soccer is part of a series also known as VR Soccer ('96 is sold at GOG), and Canyon Capers... I hadn't even heard of the game before.

 

I might pick this up for that. How is Lords of Football? What is it, a sim?

So Ubisoft doesn't give a shit about PC gamers and pulls a bait and switch showing a game at a trade show with visual enhancements that don't exist in the final shipped game. In other news, the sky is blue.

I either have most of the games in that bundle or they look terrible. There's one review for Actua Soccer 3 that says

 

This game doesn't work on my computer.

 

but i'm happy because i found my childhood.

 

*Edit: Okay someone just posted a second review that it works for them, so crap shoot (or crap chute :booty:) I guess. *shrug*

 

Lords of Football is basically a low rent The Sims with a little bit of soccer thrown in for good measure.

 

Canyon Capers is the only one that looks interesting to me but it's published by KISS so very likely to be bundled again somewhere else.

Their CEO flat out said that 93-95% of PC gamers pirate. I'm not really sure what they think the millions and millions of people on Steam are doing exactly. Or for that matter why they are so chintzy with sales if they truly think we're all pirating instead of doing what they do in Russia and sell the games cheap so people don't pirate them as much.

 

Ubisoft's logic escapes me. They basically just make assumptions and pull things out of their ass and then blame other people when things go wrong.

That's the EXACT kind of pirate Playfire is worried about. He can't complete most achievements, having only one hand and one foot and all. But that hand is pretty damn good at opening programs and clicking check boxes.

Hey guys i've been playing alot of The Long War mod for XCOM: Enemy Within and am loving the heck out of it. It's interesting in that it makes  the game harder and easier at the same time. Easier in that you can bring more than the usual 6 soldiers into battle, more perks and more weapon tiers. Harder in that it brings in harder enemies much faster, and shooting down ufo's is much harder. Anyways, check it out if you enjoyed XCOM but thought the campaign was a bit lacking

:whee:

 

On a similar note, I was playing XCom: Declassified & it took me about 7 hours to realize I wasn't having fun.  I was powering through the missions & then I finally hit one that I thought was almost over, only to find out that it wasn't.  The annoyance I felt at that discovery made me realize it was time to move on.

 

The main thing that annoyed me about the game?  Carter's default & sprint speeds.  His normal 'jog' was ridiculously slow for a game that involved running around to talk to people constantly or moving from conflict to conflict within a mission.  There was a whole lot of bodily motion for a speed I could beat easily with a brisk walk (not even a power walk).  His actual sprint wasn't much better, it may have even been the same speed with a zoomed camera.  Oh and mapping the sprint and cover/climb cover on the same button - great design choice guys.   :wall:

 

I then decided to start up Assassin's Creed III.  I was doing alright with it at first, until I realized I was falling into their collectible crap trap, just like I always do.  As I was sprinting through colonial Boston chasing a page of Ben Franklin's Almanac being blown away by the wind when I ran into a group of orphans.  This cooing brats for some reason attracted the guards - who then, again for some reason, decided I was up to no good (even though I hadn't actually done wrong in the country yet) who then started chasing/shooting at me.

 

I'm going back to the game later today, but I am going to try an reign in my collection compulsion.  

 

Oh, and Ben Franklin's a dick.

Yeah, it's a sim.  I think most of the DLC except the Super Training one, is purely cosmetic and it's supposed to be pretty bad.  I'm still considering this bundle though to get the rest of the DLC I don't have, FootLOL for playfire rewards, and Actua.

Ha ha ha holy crap.

 

They got Nolan North and the other actor from the Deadpool game to reprise their roles for the PINBALL TABLE?

 

My god, I might just buy that at full price.

I think they're trying to be more consistent with the voices. I noticed Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Lego Marvel, and the pinball tables use a lot of the same actors.

North has been voicing Deadpool for a while now, but a lot of times they can't get the same actors because of contractual or work obligations. North wasn't Deadpool in the Ultimate Spider-Man show, for example... and he sounds wrong.

 

He was also voiced by John Kassir (the motha-killin' Crypt Keeper!) in a few games, but I haven't played those so I don't know if he did a good job.

 

And then there's X-Men Origins; Wolverine. We don't talk about that one. Well, after he got Deadpooled. He was fine before being Deadpooled. Yow.

Lords of Football is meh, I like one feature of the match engine. It's biggest flaw is you can't pause during training/night time making management near impossible. The dlc adds new leagues as far as I recall, not much of a needed addition.
