Retail-box PC games? 

Sometimes, it's cheaper - especially on Amazon, these days and age. You know, since they likely are trying to get you to buy physical stuff + b/c they have Prime service and all. Oh, and since they probably want to clear some of their shelves at their warehouses so they can put new products on there.

 

Example: Mafia 3 PC retail-box is a bit cheaper (currently $17.39) than the digital-version right now ($29.99).

 

Yeah, I know - most of us w/ decent Internet connections (like myself) likely would just open the game-box when it arrives; take the game-code from Steam or Origin in the case + activate it up; download it directly anyways.

 

EDIT:

Now we only need seven boxed games to go on sale for $5 each instead of ten.

I could go for that, as long as the boxed $5 games are cheap and come w/ Steam-keys, Origin-keys, UPlay-keys, or tie to some digital-service.

About damn time!

 

Amazon has dropped Free Shipping on minimum qualification (from $49) back down to $35:

Now, we just need some killer retail-box deals on PC games again...

I disliked Dishonored 2 more than any game in recent memory.  I just don't think that I'm in a "stealth" type of mentality anymore and I was bothered by the fact that if I went "guns blazing" I would get a crappy ending so I was torn between playing how I wanted and getting a bad ending or playing how I didn't want to play to get a good ending and in the end I just uninstalled it.  It is too bad because I really enjoyed the first one.

I think it's easy enough to turn it around w/ the best ending, on the default difficulty.

 

In the 1st half, I pretty much was playing as Emily and having trouble going stealthy, gaining lots of kills - landing me in High Chaos.

 

Though, in the 2nd half, when you likely had WAY more stealthy skills behind you, I was able to turn it around and kill...very few.

And I still ended up w/ the actual best ending here.

 

I also should note that I did not kill many of the important kills, either - I usually took the "knock 'em out" option. So, I don't know if doing that also made it much easier to get me out of the High Chaos territory and get me easier into Low Chaos ending.

 

EDIT:

Also, since they do have Chapter Select now, make sure you do check-out the Clockwork + Time Manipulation chapters; they're incredible.

Ffs

Yeah...I know, right? ;)

 

I mean, I wish Redemption was on Steam too.

Don't we all?

Would be nice, if Activision + Paradox come to some sort of agreement for it to get on Steam, wouldn't you say? 

 

But, for now - GOG version, which I've had for some time, will just have to do.

Which is fine, I guess - since it has No DRM + also can utilize GOG Galaxy.

The original Mafia is a top 5 all-time game for me.  Things I look back fondly on like the speed-limit and literally being able to run out of gas would drive me insane today.  I will never play that game again but boy, back in the day it was unbelievable.

I think that stuff you mentioned is one of those defining elements of what an actual Mafia series game is (Besides strong narrative, storytelling + character development). Most crime games, like GTA, don't follow those rules of realism like Mafia 1 aimed for.

 

And you had to literally shoot-out engines & gas-tanks, to blow the cars up. Unlike many other crime-games, in Mafia 1, shooting any part of the car won't light the car up.

 

Mafia 1 was often so grounded in realism, it really did feel like that helped make the world's immersion factor, making it feel real + alive.

Nah.  Every opinion I've read is pretty much that it's nothing like Mafia aside from the name and shoehorning in Vito to call it a 'Mafia' game.  Boring game play, story doesn't hold up, bunch of technical step-backs from Mafia II, etc.

 

I'll wait for it to be in a Humble Bundle or something.  Maybe if it hits $7.49

I absolutely loved Mafia 1 + really liked Mafia 2 a hell of a lot. 

 

It's a shame to have heard so many mixed things about Mafia 3 - technical performance + bug issues (when it first launched); repetitive gameplay issues; etc etc. Some people have said the story + character stuff is great, some haven't. 

 

I really don't know what the hell to expect out of this game. 

 

EDIT:

Oh, and it would be nice if Mafia 1 got its license issues straightened-out and it wound up back on Steam.

I am getting back into borderlands 2. Why? Remembered I never played the DLC after I bought the SP when it was still new. They sure offered a lot of content for the money.

I played the heck out of the base-game - and when I finished it, that was pretty much it.

Like yourself, I eventually bought GameAgent's BL2 Pack.

 

I've barely touched Captain Scarlett DLC.

I still need to get back to the DLC's at some point, as well.

 

EDIT:

I also have BL: The Pre-Sequel (base-game), too. Great, I'm falling way behind on BL series' DLC's+games over here.
