I still think AC1 is still the worst one of the club. While AC1 was a new IP, a lot of the series' problems of the AC series began here. The biggest problem is probably the cut+paste issue of voice-acting + side-missions types - AC1 absolutely takes the cake for this one. AC1 set the trend for (often) bad + anti-climatic endings that many of the games unfortunately followed with, in most instances - i.e. AC1, AC2, ACB, etc. Let's also not forget how the game, for the most part, is a stealth game for the 1st 1/3rd, but then suddenly in the last 1/3rd becomes a back-loaded action-fest, which this game never ever needed. Plus, this game on the PC ran like garbage on most PC's at that time when it was new - yes, including mine. It was a cool title b/c it was a new IP for the time, but extremely flawed.

 

I think AC: Revelations was the start of the fall of AC series - and is often where I place the game that belonds next-to-worst AC game. TBH, the series really didn't bounce back until AC4: Black Flag when more different types of traversals (namely Pirate ships!!!!) besides running, jumping, and platforming everywhere were introduced into the game's core+main gameplay (among other things). Of course, AC Unity wasn't anything special either b/c it tried too much to be like earlier AC games in design+gameplay, but it certainly bounced back again with AC: Syndicate b/c they learned from Black Flag that different traversals can break-up the typical AC problem (i.e. buggies, carriages, etc).

 

AC: Revelations might have one of the better stories, character developments (i.e. this was the game where actually Altair's character became less of a jerk + had more dimensions to it) & it wrap-ups b/c it ended both Ezio + Altair's story, pretty much - but the new game-play type of the side missions absolutely sucked here - the Tower Defense mission + the Portal-like puzzles were poorly executed & put together.

 

AC3 certainly wasn't anything special and suffers for a lot of "too much of the same" in the gameplay department, but its story is absolutely over-the-top + ridiculous (Connor showing up at just about every important meeting for the Foundation of USA + every major important event in early Boston history); and Connor is easily the worst character in AC history. Connor could've been interesting, given his background + the opening events of the game - but just like Aiden in Watch Dogs, UbiSoft did nothing w/ making Connor take a stand for much of anything & is just a flat-out dull one-dimensional character. At least the setting of Boston, NY, and whatnot during the foundation of USA was a really cool + interesting setting.

 

TL;DR:

I have it look like this -- AC2 > ACB > AC4 > ACS > AC3 > AC Rev > AC1.

ACU, unsure where it belongs yet; never finished it.

Hm. Was Walking Dead Season 1 ever part of GOG connect? I've been trying to pay attention to connect updates but I don't seem to have it on GOG and this is the only reason that I would.

I don't think so, no.

I have TWD S1 on Steam and it never rolled over to GOG via GOG Connect program.

the self-entitlement and whiny attitude (not you) I've observed in some gamers are just astounding.  The SE was given out for free. If they don't like it, don't play it.  Just stick to the regular one with the existing mods if they don't like the SE.

Yeah; I don't get the entitlement, either.

 

It's very nice of Bethesda to do this + good publicity for them to just flat-out give SE to those who owned LE on Steam in the first place. This is great - I don't have to re-buy the game, if I want the new version b/c I already have it now. I can run SE without mods, if I like. I can wait for more mods to be ported or developed for SE, if I like. I can run Original Edition, if I like. I have hard-drive space - so I do have both installed right now. Hey, whatever floats the boat! 

 

Certainly, SE does look + run better than the original edition (without mods). I think SE being on a 64-bit EXE makes a major difference, performance-wise. Now, I just need some a few mods ported or newly developed here and SE will be where it's at for me. I had no problem porting my saves from LE to SE, probably since I never majorly modded the original game's content much (mostly used UI stuff + Quickloot Mod). 

 

In some other cases - i.e. Sleeping Dogs Definitive, Dead Island: Definitive + Dead Island Riptide: Definitive, Metro 2033 Redux, Metro LL Redux, etc - gamers who wanted the new overhauled version w/ new graphical stuff had to buy the new version, if they wanted it. Whether they were given a discount or not b/c they owned older versions...well, that's another story entirely. 

 

If any gamers are thinking they should pass on Skyrim LE b/c it don't give you the extra free SE anymore, that's crazy talk - at $10, LE is a steal. LE packs so much content, it ain't even funny. Easily over 100 hours of content in LE.

I'm not sure who doesn't own Skyrim by now but you can buy the Legendary Edition at gamestop for $10

Everybody who doesn't own Skyrim LE that loves RPG's, go buy this now.

 

Skyrim is a fantastic open-world RPG with tons to do just from Bethesda's content alone here - as this is the game + all DLC's/expansions. That's not even getting into the insane modding community, which will even more so extend the longevity of this game likely for many gamers. 

 

For me w/ Skyrim LE, since I'm still on Play-through 1 here (even w/ all main quests done, I still got other side-quests unfinished), I use these mods: SKSE, SkyUI, and Quickloot Mod.

 

On any game w/ PT1, unless the game's horribly buggy or something, I usually try to finish it as close to vanilla as possible. But, since BethSoft sucks with UI - well, that's one thing I will overhaul w/ their games b/c UI in their games have been horrible since Morrowind.

 

EDIT:

The problem w/ Skyrim Special Edition is...well, not every mod has been remade or ported over to SE. So, if you got LE before SE released, SE was yours for FREE. I have no real use for SE yet, since the mods I use from LE haven't been moved over yet...so when running SE, something just feels missing - even though SE runs better + looks quite a bit better than LE (without any graphics mods/enhancements).

So far, got about 3 hours or so on this Free Weekend with the Titanfall 2 MP.

 

Yep, it's fun right out-the-gate, as one w/ expect, if you've played T-Fall 1 and all.

 

There's nothing like killing some enemies, dropping a big-ass Titan from the sky, and then laying waste to enemies in the Titan. Nothing like being in that Titan...and then stomping on Pilots who ain't in their Titan and blowing other big Titans right out-of-the-water.

 

The grappling hook here really is a cool weapon + additional to your Pilot's arsenal for movement, as it can make the running up the walls and vertically stuff even more fun & interesting. 

 

Though, as usual, w/ Titanfall 1 - seems like also in T-Fall 2 here that I can mostly get games w/ Attrition going without much effort and without much wasting-time, waiting to get a get Match-Maked and all. While there are a bunch of other different modes here, Attrition pretty much is the game's main mode, so most seem to be playing Attrition here.

#13553526 Neverwinter Nights Diamond Edition Free on GOG

Posted by MysterD on 04 December 2016 - 01:10 AM

Steam gives you the option to add these DRM-Free games right there into your Steam library! I did it with the banned, AO rated Manhunt 2 download I got on Amazon! It appears right there in your games list with all your other Steam games. O_O

Yes, which is great as an extra option - and I absolutely do use it for GOG games, Origin games, other Non-Steam versions, etc etc. This is even more important for games that are exclusive to Origin and/or aren't on Steam at all period. You do have benefits from this of taking screenshots that you can post right-up on Steam + also the benefit of (more or less) letting your Steam-friends know what you're playing (if they check their Friends list to see who's playing what) which can be important if a Non-Steam version + Steam-version have middleware where you guys can still play together.

 

But, adding a Non-Steam game to Steam just still is not the exact same as having a native Steam-version. Steam-versions still have additional Steam-benefits of Steam's gametime-tracking, auto-updates, Steam Cloud (if it uses that), and other Steam-exclusive stuff.

 

I'd love to see NWN1: Diamond and NWN2: Complete on Steam - especially if Atari wanted to do a cheap Humble Bundle w/ those in it having Steam-keys. ;) I'd be all over it; especially if those will appear in an Atari Humble Bundle w/ other games I might actually be missing.
