Hey, it comes out to 21 cents.

That's like 21 Metro LL's.

 

EDIT:

Hrmm...

 

As previously stated, Bloodlines is a fantastic game.  That ghost house still scares the crap out of me because I somehow ALWAYS end up playing that level when it's 2 am and the lights are out.

 

Warmachine... Warmachine... I just don't know... I've been tempted to nibble a few times (since I enjoy the TT but don't have time).  The DLC is just a bit much though.  I'm just not sure.  It's being passed through the "will I want to buy this before the next sale and thus pay more" filter in my head.

The ghost house is one of my favorite levels of all time.

 

I also love the plot-line involving the Two Sisters working at The Asylum, as well. The end of that plot-line the first time I experienced it, was just mind-blowing and jaw-dropping.

Wow, that's the cheapest I think I've ever seen Bloodlines get.

 

I love that game. Seriously, if anyone doesn't own this - while it can be a major pain in the neck to get running properly (especially on newer PC's after Win XP), it's worth it if you can get it going.

 

While gameplay and combat isn't as great as most games w/ shooting elements that came after Mass Effect 2 (i.e.Bloodlines feels a bit clunky b/c it does gun-shots based on your stats + dice-rolls, not where you shoot someone) - the story, choices, and atmosphere are fantastic.

 

Basically...just see this thread, if you're trying to get it going + trying to avoid Steam from backwards-patching you (to last official Patch):

http://forums.steamp...d.php?t=2025035

 

My Advice:

Download the game from Steam. (duh!)

 

Back-up a clean copy of Bloodlines somewhere, in case you unofficially patch it and screw it up from working - in case you might need to reinstall that folder from scratch.

 

Disable Steam Features - Overlay, Community, and especially Forced Updates. These can cause problems w/ Steam-version if you want to mod it or use any unofficial patches - b/c unfortunately, Steam's been known back-patch you to last official version, which still had its issues. Last official version can be a pain to run on Modern OS's.

 

Unofficial patches solved A LOT of problems w/ running it on newer OS's - b/c they fixed + modded the EXE.

 

Install one of the unofficial patches - either Tessera or Wesp's Unofficial Patches.

Both have their followers - and both fixed EXE so it runs on Win XP + above.

I use Wesp's, personally.

 

Enjoy!

Rage dlc is good and well worth the 1.25 or whatever it is on sale. I recommend it.

Agreed.

 

Scorchers DLC is actually needed to keep the game-world actually open (so you can actually re-visit old areas) + to continue playing after you finish the base-game or DLC.

 

Otherwise, w/ the base-game only - after a certain point, you cannot return to old areas (one you hit the Subway Area, you can't return to certain older areas) + the game actually ends when you actually finish the base game campaign (WTF?).

 

Plus, Scorchers DLC is campaign is good & it actually has a final boss fight + an actual finish to its story - unlike the actual base-game.

Just a head's up, Driver Parallel Lines is 75% off in addition to Driver San Francisco. It was only 40% off before.

Hmmmm - did anyone actually back when UPLAY launched buy Driver: San Fran Deluxe (UPLAY version) for $1?

So uh, did Amazon's sale ever get any good discounts?

No.

Valkyria Chronicles never hit 75% off to match Steam-sale.

So, no Bing $ spent there.

"Bleh" on you, Amazon.

Any thoughts on NFS? Which is the one to get? Shift, Undercover or Hot Pursuit?

 

I'd go with NFS: Hot Pursuit (2010 Reboot from Criterion). The game's a blast. With its Cops vs. Racers theme, you can play either sides at any time + their missions (depending on what missions you unlock). With a big maps loaded w/ lots of races + types. Yeah, it's tons of fun.

 

While I did like NFS: Undercover, I was disappointed with it. It's basically NFS: Most Wanted [2005 version by Black Box] - but nowhere as great. Nowhere as great as NFS: MW 2005 - as it only has a few new race types (like Highway Battles - which are awesome). Other than Maggie Q doing actual acting + a different story than MW 2005, it don't feel too different from that game. But, if you ain't played NFS: MW 2005, you might actually like UC more than I did.

 

While I did like NFS: Shift, that's more for those who are trying to try something less arcadey than NFS, but want something a bit more sim-like - even though it is not entirely a sim type of racing game. It is in first-person always in the cockpit, so that's different for a racer (especially NFS) and kind of cool.

 

Personally - for NFS games, I loved both NFS: Most Wanted 2005 + NFS: Carbon + NFS: Hot Pursuit 2010. Those are the ones that I dug the most.

 

This is worth a mention behind the other three - the recent NFS: Rivals was a excellent cross b/t NFS: Most Wanted 2005, Most Wanted 2012 & Hot Pursuit 2010. While I'm sure most didn't like it's locked at 30 FPS, screw it - I dug the game and had a lot of fun with it. The seamless transitions b/t online + offline mix is awesome, if it finds you a connection, other players, and whatnot. And if it doesn't connect or you choose to not allow for online players - just play solo, offline or online; up to you. Of course, like many recent EA Titles - NFS: Rivals is only on Origin.

I guess they saw you guys arguing since they added this:

{Shenmue 3 stuff}

Spoiler

Bleh @ this:


Are there plans for the HD versions of Shenmue 1 & 2?

The property rights for Shenmue 1 and Shenmue 2 belong to SEGA, so we are not in a position to comment on that.
