I'd love some new EA Madden + NHL on PC.

Do it, EA!

I don't know if it's been mentioned anywhere, but i was looking through the gog sale and Dragon Age Origins Ultimate edition (includes base game + all the dlc and the awakening expansion pack) is 4 dollars. I'm fairly positive that's the cheapest it's been. While it's a pretty old game and I'd imagine most people own it by now, if you don't you should pick it up. If you just own the base game it's worth getting - there's a fair amount of dlc and the expansion is worth 4 bucks on its own; it's very good and around 15-18 hours. 

DAO Ultimate is fantastic.

 

The DAO base-game is amazing & is one of the best & last AAA old-school style CRPG's (strategic-combat party-based cRPG's like that of BG1+2 & NWN1: Hordes & NWN2). While Awakening is basically "more of the same", it's certainly not a bad thing here - it might not be as long + as amazing as the base-game, but Awakening feels like a wonderful trip back to the grand old CRPG.

 

For DLC's here - for me, it's all about Leilana's Song & Witch Hunt. Those two were pretty good, IMHO.

I don't know why I keep putting Freespace. I meant Freelancer.

I liked both of those games a hell of a lot, BTW.

TW2 also has coop missions and and interesting village mode (resource management sim lite).  Its not half bad, and I am up for bro-oping it.  Also new DLC is upcoming:

I've actually never touched the MP for either 2W1+2.

 I think everyone hated it, but there's also a digital deluxe version of Raven's Cry on sale at the moment too.

 

Still looking at one of thesefor the ongoing saga of my build.

Hopefully, you get a nice price-drop soon so you can scoop up a nice 6GB of VRAMzzzzzzzzzzz GTX 1060. :)

 

I'm still waiting for Vendetta: Raven's Cry to wind-up bundled on BundleStars or somewhere.

Are the Two Worlds games any good or complete crap? I had seen that they were going to create new DLC for the second game, and I asked myself why.

 

The original Two Worlds 1 is decent, despite its tons of shortcomings + issues. Basically, a C-grade version of a Morrowind, Oblivion, and Skyrim. When it came out, it had TONS of issues - performance issues (Shouldn't be an issue now); DRM issues (limited install counts, crummy DRM system, etc - won't be an issue on GOG version, not sure if they removed DRM on Steam version); horrid voice-acting; horrible writing; broken quests; etc etc. Though, it had a huge open-world, lots of quests, and a nice crafting system - and was addictive just b/c of these reasons, provided you could get past the technical issues + horrible voice-acting & writing.

 

Two Worlds 2 took almost every issue w/ the original and slayed it, just about. The game looked and ran great, upon release. Quests were often way less broken, out-the-gate. Writing, dialogue, and voice-acting got better - though, just don't expect the BioWare or Obsidian quality on that stuff. The crafting system got deeper and more complex, as now you could craft also magic. Weapon crafting system was now a bit more interesting - as you can taken weapons you had doubles of + use that item to improve your current weapon. You can break apart items also, too. Basically, its crafting system got even more addictive to me here. Finally, Two Worlds got its act together, basically - and was a worthwhile B-grade version of Morrowind, Oblivion, and Skyrim. Two Worlds 2 is easily their best game.

 

I also guess that they are doing more Two Worlds 2 content b/c they have a nice running game, a solid system in place, decent performing game here in every regard. I'd guess all they would really have to do is just basically add more content. Probably a safe solution for them, especially after how disastrous Vendetta: Raven's Cry supposedly turned out. 

 

EDIT:

If you can catch + likely will catch Two Worlds 1+2 ultra-cheap, as they've been certainly bundled a zillion times on BundleStars - check 'em out. 

 

EDIT 2:

Oh, look - TW2 Velvet [Steam key] is in a $1.49 bundle on BundleStars - https://www.bundlest...heroes-2-bundle

 

EDIT 3:

If you are looking for a dirt-cheap open-world RPG fix + time-sink and you have not played Gothic Universe, it's a steal for $3 on Steam for PB's Gothic 1+2+3. If you're curious about them, go back a day or 2 or so and check out what I said about Gothic games.

For those doing budget builds, wanting 1080p gaming, and are not future-proofing on VRAMz....

 

Zotac 3GB GTX 1060 Mini-sized card w/ Rocket League key = $150 at Microcenter in-store only:

http://www.microcent...pact_Video_Card

 

 

Performance-wise, 3GB 1060 performs a bit better + similar to a 4 3.5 GB 970:

Just finished Medal of Honor: Pacific Assault, and it was Fuck ing terrible.

 

It has possibly the worst hit detection I've ever had the misfortune of dealing with in an FPS. 

 

The AI is anything but intelligent; you can't even call it AI, it's just pathfinding. The enemies alternate between cowering behind cover, standing stiff as a board, and rushing forward. Beautifully paired with this is a favorite of bad 90s game design-- aimbot-style, instalock accuracy.

 

Coupled with low-res bushes and trees that obscure everything, the jungle levels are an infuriating mess. 

 

Most of your guns aren't worth a damn, and ammo is maddeningly scarce for those that are decent. Your squadmates are similarly worthless.

 

The cherry on top is the awful health system. Health packs are rarer than a night in which Bah's mom doesn't get penetrated. You can call over a guy to heal you twice a level, which doesn't always work, and you can die while being healed.

 

It's not a matter of being dated. This was released in the era of Far Cry, Half-Life 2, Doom 3, The Chronicles of Riddick, and other fine titles which still hold up.

 

A curse upon the “Comunidad en español” Steam group for helping me acquire this steaming hot basura.  

When West and Zampella leave a company + franchise (i.e. they were at 2015 Inc with MOH: AA + then Infinity Ward until CoD: MW2), the quality of a franchise dropping seems to happen.

 

Just look at how the quality of MOH dropped after MOH:AA + how CoD really hasn't been the same since MW1+2.

I think this description is the perfect description of the perfect Joker.  He doesn't need to be scary or menacing if he can be entirely unpredictable and capable of anything.  "True uncertainty (certainty?) that anything at all could happen" should be the main feeling you get around him.

 

Edit:  I have not seen Leto do Joker.

Yeah, see...that's also the thing: Jack wasn't really that unpredictable or anything to me, as The Joker. Jack was...mostly funny + over-the-top. Even to a point, it felt more comedic than anything. It never felt really scary to me.

 

On the other hand, there were a bunch of moments w/ Ledger as Joker that felt unpredictable with him & that he was truly frightening, scary, and jaw-dropping. Ledger just knew how + when to play that role for the right mood.
