Awesome, I'll grab this one for $5

Indeed. War for Cybertron, and it's sequel Fall of Cybertron were both pretty solid adaptations by High Moon Studios, a team that sadly fell apart during and after their work on the Deadpool game, which is why Rise of the Dark Spark is back to the film games level of quality, ESPECIALLY in the writing. I think War for Cybertron is the definitive "Transformers video game" though. Truly inspiring level of heart in that game there.

Well I just got some sweet news to offset this unfortunate date-night fallout.

Got into the Evolve Alpha!

Glad to see all this love for BioShock, if far later than I hoped most would have experienced it.

As for the Banjo Bundle - I jumped for one reason and one only, that being the lack of previous sales on the individual titles and the limited listing period for the bundle. Many still think the bundle is permanent and not a month long offer.

That's quite a statement!  In what way did those games impact you?

I'd be venturing deep into spoiler territory to be exact but a lot of the running themes of choice and consequence have stuck with me, and the entire end of Infinite/BurialAtSea is one big reminder that our actions shape not only our future but the future of those around us in ways we may never realize first hand.

A quick note about my gaming tastes...hated the Zelda games, with the exception of the old style couple on the gameboy color. Never quite got the appeal of the N64/GC/Wii versions.

Quick note about my personal gaming tastes, I don't like to relegate myself to a particular style or approach to gaming because more often than not I find I quite enjoy the things I avoided before for one reason or another, but enjoy them because they provide different sorts of satisfaction.

A clock in story mode just kills it for me. I play games for fun, adding a deadline for getting stuff done really messes with my enjoyment. If it's a mission that has it no big deal but when it's the whole game that just ruins it in my opinion.

It's plot driven, though. I can understand if you'd take issue with a random clock placed in games, but when centered around a city being nuked at a given time, or a virus spreading through your system - doesn't it add to the weight of your actions moment to moment to know you can't be wasteful and need to think about the next move constantly? Could easily just be personal preference, but I enjoy it.

I wish I still had Blur! Why did I trade it in !? Why!?!?

I think all us 360 owners hoped it'd be a franchise and we'd see sequels but...

Feeling particularly lazy so not sure if this has been mentioned, but for those picking up Just Cause 2, there are 3 pieces of FREE DLC - All completely silly fun but FREE!

 

My two cents on the sale games:

PvZ: Fun as PvZ is, I still think it's best with touch interface.

Just Cause 2: LOTS of fun but more for messing around than much else, but hey, it's FUN!

Quantum Quandrum: Not portal. Yes it's got some fun bits but it's not a completely enjoyable experience.

Dead Island: Alright game overall but most of us got it free already, eh?

Dead Island Riptide: Unless you LOVE every zombie game because it's a zombie game, pass. It's more of the same.

Deus Ex HR: A brilliant game but the Directors Cut fixed the issues this release had for the most part. Mixed bag.

Tomb Raider: If you missed out on the reboot, jump in. It's not going anywhere, because it's a solid game.

Lightning Returns: A fun new spin on the series and much more involving than previous XIII entries, but lacking in depth.

Dishonored: This is still on sale? Well, if you havn't played one of my favorite games of all time, GET IT!

Looks like another chance for me to NOT buy Dark Souls.  Wow that game keeps getting sales, those devs must be desperate.

Uh, hardly? Both Final Fantasy XIII-2 and Dark Souls have sequels dropping in the next 60 days?

Are any of the dlc's woth getting for Bioshock 2 besides Minerva's Den?

Not unless you're dying for more less than perfect combat. I enjoy electrobolting a man while riviting him as much as the next big daddy but Bioshock 2 has one piece of DLC worth grabbing and it's Minervas Den.




#11425969 XBL Deals - Jan 6 - Sep 4, 2014

I forgot I already have Minerva's Den. Is it worth digging out Bioshock 2 to play it? Also, Mafia 2 is a great little GTA lite if you want the whole style over substance thing. The game has an amazing personality but after GTA 5 I'm sure it looks empty and dated. Still, I thought the writing and personality were great.

 

Finally, I couldn't really get into Blood Dragon but still wanted to give Far Cry 3 a shot. Would I like the original more? I found the Blood Dragon pacing to be kind of slow, probably because I'm so used to the heavy scripting of all post COD shooters.

FC3 has similar pacing issues but is much more fun to jump in for simple exploration than it's Blood Dragon counterpart. As for Minervas Den, I HIGHLY urge you to give it a shot. It's not long, but it's a standalone story that is almost as good, if not better than the entire retail game it's added onto.
