Oh no, I totally agree.  Mass Effect 2 was basically Bioware's last genuinely good game (2010), it's after that where they started rolling downhill.  For me they basically peaked with Mass Effect 1 and Dragon Age: Origins (though I still feel Jade Empire is my favorite Bioware game). 

 

I feel like ME2 was a step back from ME1 overall, but I'd still count it as a really good game.  But DA2, ME3 and DA:I were all mediocre messes at best.

I'd really love to see Jade Empire 2 some day, TBH.

Current BF stash:

 

  • That $1.50 Adventure Time game by WayForward (gift from an old buddy... who coincidentally asked me if I knew how to make Finn shut the hell up)
  • Dragon Age Inquisition GOTY

 

Aaaaaand that's it. I've spent more money on movies this time around.

See any good movies?

I rented Hell or High Water, which was excellent.

There are six episodes that play separate from the main campaign that range from 20 minutes to an hour or so.

There are also challenge maps added for both addon characters and batmobile action.

There are the usual skins but whatever.

There are 4 missions added to the main campaign that are not very long as well but allow you to fight villains that are not included in the base game.

Thanks for the info.

 

Batman Arkham Knight Season Pass = $5 on GamesPlanet UK website.

 

Looks like the cheapest this has been:

Looks like I'm gonna add this to my Black Friday Week haul.

 

EDIT:

And....bought.

I expected it to run badly, I knew going in it has problems. I was just thinking out loud. After $15 GC I got it for like 13 bucks from BBC and thought it to be worth the investment.

isn't the game built on the same engine as new Doom?

No. 

 

Doom 2016 is on the newer, better & much more optimized version of Id Tech Engine.

Doom 2016 is on Id Tech 6.

 

Dishonored 2 is on Void Engine, which was based off Id Tech 5.

 

Id Tech 5 powered RAGE, which was un-optimized as hell on the PC - and still could use some improvements, fixing & optimization, TBH. RAGE was a pretty good game, but its performance absolutely sucked.

 

I knew we were screwed w/ Dishonored 2 PC, when I found out its Void Engine was on Id Tech 5 (ugh!) and they recommended 6GB GTX 1060 & 8GB RX 480. Seriously, though - "WTH?!?!" @ these VRAM requirements.

So Dishonored 2 runs pretty trashy.

What did you expect?

 

Dishonored 2's Void Engine is actually built from Id Tech 5 (i.e. RAGE's Engine). RAGE's Engine still could use some optimizations, if you ask me.

Debating between Deus Ex Mankind Divded's Season Pass for $7.50 or Homefront Revolution Freedom Fighter Bundle for $15. Thoughts?

Wait - where's Homefront Rev Freedom Fighter Bundle for $15?

 

EDIT:

Oh, is this on GMG?

I forgot all about BlackFriday10 promo code/coupon. Does it work on this?

 

EDIT 2:

Yep, it does work on GMG w/ that code.

And...bought.

PC Gamer - Deep Silver blames "poor timing" for Homefront: The Revolution's poor sales + reception:

http://www.pcgamer.c...uffer_pcgamerfb

 

No, Deep Silver should be blaming "poor technical performance" + releasing the game when it wasn't ready. I imagine if they released a decent technically performing game a few months later, gamers who like these type of FPS's would've been all over it.  

 

While the story+character stuff is serviceable enough for this kind of game (open-world Far Cry 3+4 type of FPS) - the gameplay is addictive; has a few nice twists on that genre of open-world FPS's; and is honestly tons of fun if you like that kind of FPS and is looking for something good to hold you over until true-blue Far Cry 5 comes along.

 

The game upon release ran like garbage for most and it took a Free Weekend on Steam to show most people, "Look, we fixed our game finally! Go buy it!"
