Re: Sacred 3 Looks like there are different power skills that you unlock as you level.  Each character has three or so per slot.  They still don't seem terribly unique, though.  You can also upgrade your weapon/armor but it's mostly 'do more damage or knock down enemies' type of stuff.

 

In case anyone is interested in figuring it out before the pick a character, this guide breaks it down: http://guides.gamepr...de.asp?ID=26175

Hmmm.

The guide says I should go back to Sacred 1 Gold + Sacred 2 Gold...

Kind of interesting they replaced Sacred Citadel with Sacred 3 in this repeat.   Although I think Citadel has been bundled a few times.  Not a bad game, either.

They should've also put Citadel in Tier #1, since I don't have any of that either. 

I want them Steam-game +1's. :P

Wow. I own the entire bundle already, except Sacred 3 Gold.

In for $1 b/c of Sacred 3 Gold.

@MysterD

 

Now FFX/X-2 HD 1080p 60fps!!

Spoiler

Nice!!!

 

Though, he ain't done (see the modder's replies/comments on the Youtube vid) - as he says he has to do the gameplay and every single cut-scene properly to make it 60FPS. Ouch - sounds like that'll be one HELL of a crazy job to take on.

 

Hopefully, either the modder or Square can get this done in full + release it.

 

Regardless, I'm fine w/ the game at 30FPS lock and never-ever wanting to drop at 1080p w/ everything maxed. 

 

Though, I'm really looking forward to Untitled Project X releasing w/ cut-scene skipping (in case there are poorly placed saves causing cut-scenes to be repetitive if you die over + over; and/or for any sort of game-replays) - unless Square wants to patch this in themselves. 

 

EDIT:

BTW, I really am digging the game (FFX HD Remaster), so far. Combat looks and feels just fine here; quite good, IMHO. Really liking this game's style of turn-based combat.

 

Despite some odd muddy textures and the obvious textures of some non-important NPC's not really looking good at all - I can't help but think, as usual with a Final Fantasy game, the art direction itself is unique, artistic, gorgeous, and fantastic. Despite some not-so-great English audio voice-acting - sometimes I just wish they'd use NO voice-acting instead, if they ain't going to get decent voice-acting - and some not-so-hot dialogue/writing here & there, I can't still but help (as usual w/ FF games) like the overall direction of the plot, character, & story stuff they have going on here.

Well, 2-of-3 games from my GMG crap bundle were new: Return NULL and Elements: Soul of Fire.

I don't know whether to facepalm or like that joke.

Why not go for both?

EDIT:

 

You'll have to ask MysterD about BUTT-HIVES.

What about asking MysterD about DRM-HIVES? And/or VRAM-HIVES?

Forget dat...When is Red Dead Redemption coming out on PC?

Yeah, I've been wanting to know that one for a long time. And still do.

 

EDIT:

 

Well you know I love hardware talk and all, but what I really want to know is what do you think of DRM? Also I need to get MysterD's opinion again. Plus the current price of Fallout 4 on Amazon right now and every 3 seconds for the next 3 days.

$31.33 for FO4 PC retail box on Amazon.

 

EDIT 2:

 

Does anyone know how much VRAM I'll need to play a DRM-free copy of Final Fantasy X-2 REMASTERED EDITION?

Only on Steam right now. If you want it DRM-FREE, you might be waiting quite a bit. Square doesn't put a lot of their newer PC releases on GOG often.

 

Looks like minimum is 512 MB of VRAM for either NVidia 9600 or AMD 2600 XT - see system requirements on Steam page for FFX/X-2 HD Remaster:

A month later, I was crying about Fallout New Vegas.

I was glad Obsidian for Fallout: New Vegas went w/ Steam.

I'd rather deal w/ Steam than that God-awful Microsoft-made trainwreck called GFWL that Bethesda used on FO3.

I cleansed myself of brainwashing from the DRM-free cult long ago - no need for me to expatriate! Those reddit comments are hilarious. I do like DRM-free packages for older games, but for modern games DRM-free is a hassle not at all worth the premium you pay for the inconvenience of having to download giant installers, back them up, then download manual patches that come days after the auto updates on Steam.

The automatic-updating process is probably the ONLY thing GOG Galaxy does right - I've had Galaxy basically do updates before to basically fix the files that I downloaded from GOG via the web-browser (game-installers for the entire game, DLC's, and patches) in the first-place. Like Steam, If you have Galaxy enabled to do updates - it'll just update whatever it needs to, whenever it needs to.

 

Pretty much, GOG Galaxy has fixed my Witcher 3 a few times. [shrug]

 

EDIT:

I think for newer games + games still getting updates, it just might be best if you get a GOG Version to just deal w/ Galaxy first. Once the game's done with its final run of official patches, updates, DLC's, and whatnot - then you can download from the web-broswer while signed-into GOG the actual installer files + patches so you can keep 'em for back-up purposes (in case you're offline and need to reinstall).

 

I've seriously had more issues before Galaxy existed on GOG with Legend of Grimrock 1, Outcast + W3 getting proper installer game-file builds, patches working properly, re-downloading files (often b/c of corruption issues), re-downloading installer (b/c newer-builds came out and newer patches only worked with those), DLC's being recognized properly (W3 issues), and other non-sense. GOG sucked with file-integrity, until Galaxy came out and fixed that issue.

About DRM-FREE vs. Game-Client Platforms...

Let's be realistic here: there are pro's and con's to both platforms. 

 

Game-Client Platforms (which often have DRM):

The problem for most Game-Client platforms like Steam is this - none of them offer the amount of options or are as feature-rich that Steam has. It's often why most of us prefer Steam in the first-place. Steam has turned game-clients into something for gamers to want b/c they have the BY FAR the biggest + best community; Achievements; Steam Cloud support; Steamworks Multiplayer support; Big Picture Mode; Screen-Shot Taking; Game-Time Tracking; Steam Reviews; and other really cool stuff. Unfortunately, nobody else is on Steam's level w/ their game-client and nobody is even bloody close to it, which make all of the other platforms (Origin, UPlay, Battle.Net, etc) vastly inferior to theirs. No wonder everybody really want all their eggs in one Steam basket.

 

The funny thing is - well, Steam can throw DRM-FREE games at us, if they want. Dev's + pub's just don't ship the game with CEG and/or don't ship the game with any other 3rd party DRM-crap (Securom, IronShield, Denuvo, etc) in the first place. Sure, you still need Steam game-client to download and all - but for many of those No-DRM Steam games (i.e. just see Wizardy 8), after downloading and keeping the files - you can find ways to get them going w/out needing Steam, if need be.

 

DRM-FREE:

Yeah, it's great a game's DRM-FREE and has nothing of much in your way of really backing installer-files/game-folder files-up (once you get them), installing the game, modding the game, replacing EXE's if need be, playing a game, booting a game, etc etc. You own the game - do what you want with it and the files. Awesome! :)

 

Problem is - most DRM-FREE platforms don't have much of a game-client or don't have any sort of game-client at all. GOG just launched their Galaxy game-client platform not too long ago and that is WAY behind almost every other platform out there, also. It's not as feature-rich as Origin, nevermind even Steam. It's cool I can run GOG games without the Galaxy client and all - but frankly speaking, GOG's Galaxy client sucks!  :(

I'm sure some people might have slow/weak/cheap Internet; might not want to blow-up their actual data cap w/ their ISP (if they have one); and/or actually just what a physical copy of the game for them ahead of time.

 

It won't matter that much to me, as I do have fast Internet; hey, I do feel I have to, in this digital-deal crazed era.

 

But, it might matter to someone else. [shrug]

 

EDIT:

Okay for the last time no one in murica besides you MysterD gives two shits if they get a disc for a PC game.

 

Get a time machine or move to Europe.
