Borderlands is an RPG?  :-k

 

Is this one of those "Pac-Man can be an RPG if you imagine that you're really eating pellets while being chased by ghosts" sort of things?

 

Or did he really mean this?

Spoiler

 

Borderlands is a FPS (obviously) mixed with some ARPG elements (i.e. crazy loot galore and leveling-up system).

 

No way is Borderlands a usual type of RPG. Doesn't really do the dialogue trees thing and also doesn't really give you those branching choices.

I'm missing some of these SF classics, so....this is great news for me! :)

 

EDIT:

To get the older SF games that are before SF4 onto Steam, this is just great! :)

Divinity Anthology is on sale on Steam for $2.99. It includes Divine Divinity, Beyond Divinity, and Divinity II. Good deal for three RPGs.

http://store.steampo....com/sub/17798/

VERY highly recommend Larian's Divinity series.

 

A lot of RPG gaming there for not much money at all.

 

Divine Divinity was great. It felt like the proper mix of Diablo-style ARPG's (real-time combat with isometric camera); regular RPG's (decision-making and great storytelling & characters); and semi-open world games. I just wish they'd have had an option to turn all voice-acting off, b/c it's pretty much the only weakness of the game - as it's ranging from terrible to good, at the drop of a hat.

 

Beyond Divinity, from what I played, was good. Never finished it. As usual, other stuff I bought got in the way...and I never got back fully. BD feels and looks much darker than DD; and also has an interesting two-man RPG duo (your character and a Dark Knight, who you are bound to). If one of the two dies, game over. It has a few cool new tricks up its sleeve over DD, as you can zoom in and out now w/ the camera and more quests give you more choices - but feels more linear w/ its Act progression cycle and less semi-open world. Still, this game never really struck a chord w/ me as much as DD did.

 

Divinity II was great overall, once DKS came out. Div II feels more like a semi-open world type Fable games combat-wise & Elder Scrolls w/ its open-world. Div II: Ego Draconis base-game (original edition) had some issues w/ difficulty, performance, and a crazy cliff-hanger - supposedly, DKS and DC's remaster of Div 2: ED base-game really fixed a lot of those concerns in the base-game; never re-tried base-game after the remaster, so I can't speak on it. But, the original edition of Div II was still pretty good, despite its issues; so I'd guess the remaster found in DKS and DC would be even better. The expansion content in DKS (and DC, for that matter) was an excellent way to finish off the Div II saga - and that is also definitely worth playing.

 

I still have yet to begin Dragon Commander and Divinity: Original Sin 1.

And I don't own Div: OS2 yet.

 

I should note this, even though these games have not been bundled much of all:

Div II DC has been bundled before in $1 Tier 1 of a Focus Bundle - https://isthereanyde...#/filter:id/352

Both Divine Divinity and BD have been bundled in $1 Tier 1 of a Triumph/Larian Duo Bundle - https://isthereanyde...#/filter:id/817

Witchfire looked pretty cool.

 

 

I pretty much jumped for joy when it said "But also from the guys behind Painkiller and Bulletstorm."

Oh, hell yes!!!!

So at 6:44 Eastern it was OK to do re-releases, but 5 minutes later it's a poor business practice. Got it.

I think I'd prefer a season pass for loot boxes over seeing the same shit re-released over and over.

It's more complex than that, as always.

 

Sometimes, I don't give much explanation. Sometimes, I do. So, I do need to get better at this.

 

Re-releases are a very tricky thing.

 

From me, as a consumer: I don't own DMC1&2 Regular or HD Editions period on any platform ever period.

Those games have never hit Steam.

So, yeah - I'm okay with DMC HD Collection coming to PC for especially those reasons.

 

From a developers & publishers point of view: it's probably in their best interest to put games on as a many platforms as possible and put out as many SKU's as possible. Heck, those consumers who might own it already on PS3, might also want it on Steam for PC now - so the dev's and pub's get those who don't mind the double-dipping/multiple-dipping.

inb4 a 20 page dissertation about MysterD's opinions on Privateer, Privateer 2, and the whole Wing Commander series, with a brief mention of Star Citizen.

Y'all dodged a bullet.

No dissertation possible, since I ain't played ANY of those.

 

I did play both Starlancer and Freelancer. Starlancer was good, but I absolutely loved Freelancer.

You know what to expect from MysterD by now.

01. Mentions of owning older games from retail on CD, DVD, etc.

02. Repetition.

03. DRM discussions.

04. Platform discussions - i.e. Steam, Origin, GOG Galaxy, etc etc.

05. 75% off or wait for bundle on buying most games.

06. Go see #2 again.

07. How more games should come with SDK's to keep their lifespan going; especially MP-based games.

08. Poor business practices - i.e. content milking, loot boxes, MTX's, Season Passes, Re-Releases, etc.

09. Long-winded posts.

10. Insert any other MysterD-like discussions here.

Glad I never bought DMC3SE!

 

That said I hope all of you guys who already own it get a discount. But it's Capcom, so I doubt it.

Never bought it on Steam, but do have it from retail on 5 CD's.

Never played DMC3SE.

 

Anyways, glad to see the entire HD Collection come to the PC.
