So I looked it up, she's Croatian. And totally the producer. And totally an RPG fan. And totally not satisfied with the state of RPGs today. I mean Zrinka wouldn't lie to us, now would she?

 

 

Doesn't matter to me if she lied, since someone gave me a Steam-key for it in a giveaway, IIRC. ;)

If it sucks, no money out of my pocket. ;)

Thanks everyone... I guess I should have been more explicit... I'd picked up from before that I should play BS1 before BSI... but is playing BS2/Minerva's Den important to play before BSI.

 

BS1 has such status that I really should play it (I've owned it since $5 retail.)  I know BS2 wasn't that well received... I was wondering how important it is to play BS2 before BSI.

 

Amazingly I actually know very little about BS1... underwater, little girl, big daddy, and a wrench.  (Please don't spoil it.  Sure sound like child abuse though.)

 

Play it all in this order:

Bioshock 1

Bioshock 2 (base-game)

BIoshock 2: Minerva's Den DLC

Bioshock: Infinite (base-game)

Bioshock: Infinite - Burial At Sea, Part 1.

 

You honestly should play them ALL.

 

I would recommend playing at least Bioshock 1 BEFORE you touch Bioshock: Infinite. Bioshock 1 players right off the bat should notice similarities, references, & other nods that are placed in Bioshock: Infinite.

 

You surely do want to play Bioshock 1 before you even touch Burial At Sea, Part 1 - since Burial At Sea, Part 1 takes place in Rapture (the underwater city in both Bioshock 1 + 2).

 

I don't think playing Bioshock 2 + Minerva's Den is necessary to enjoying BS:I - but, you should play those b/c they're still at least good. You especially should play Minvera's Den DLC - it's great.

Possibly someone who bought AC4 on a console but wants this on PC?

If one owned AC4 on console, wouldn't one just wait to get AC4: Complete Edition PC when it gets cheap?

Who the heck wants to get double-dipped on so expensively?

Hmmmm...Maybe Neuro - I think he's bought Mass Effect series on numerous times on numerous different platforms. ;)

Windows 8. At first I was like

After a couple tweaks and installing Classic Shell start menu, I was like

Seems legit.

 

Your after picture (of Banderas), though - that's how I felt after putting StartMenu8 and Nimi Places on my Windows 8.1 laptop.

I've never done Kickstarter. Probably never will.

I find Kickstarter as another form of pre-ordering.

I tend to stay normally away from pre-orders, Kickstarting, and/or buying week of release (or very close to it) for tons of reasons.

[Side note: If you want the reasons, I'll be happy to go into a dissertation on why I normally do NOT often buy ASAP.]

 

But, of course - that doesn't always work.

Some games I've pre-ordered in the last few years have included: The Witcher 1 + 2; KoA: Reckoning; & Deus Ex: HR.

 

My usual "rules" always apply.

 

They are:

75% off or better on games I'll backlog or play now.

 

That percentage-off may budge to a lower percent-off of "whatever" on games I'm dying to play ASAP. I call those my "ASAP games".

When budging for them ASAP games, I try to aim for 50% off or better.

That doesn't always work, though.

 

So, yes - the ASAP rule especially goes into effect on funding sites (i.e. Kickstarter - which is basically a pre-order) & the typical type of pre-orders (from Steam, retail stores, digital stores, etc) & week of release purchases.

I'm sorry to hear that.

 

I was reading about how the PC and console HD versions are missing effects present in the Gamecube and Wii versions, due to the game being programmed to call for specific Gamecube functions that don't exist outside of that hardware, so no other ports of the game will have all of the effects. :cry:

Spoiler

I really loved RE4 PC (Retail version), despite its pathetic KB/mouse scheme.

I was happy w/ how it played w/ a PC controller/gamepad, though.

Great game, BTW.

Apparently Pool Nation was $0.99 on XBLA last week...

 

Also Pool Nation Soundtrack is easily accessable as 32 kbps WMA in Pool Nation\sfx\music

We need Pool Nation 99 cents sale on PC, as well. :D
