BTW anyone have CoD:BO2. I really liked the feel of the guns in MW1-3 I felt they had impact, but I realy disliked WAW and BO (I could deal with BO alittle) I felt in the Treyarch games I was shooting a pellet gun, the bullets seems to do overall less dmg and give no impact, people felt more "bullet spongie".

Is BO2 any better in this regard? This is mainly a multiplayer gripe not really a PVE(Zombies/Story) issue

I was in the beta for it, 2 things I didnt like were red dot/flashlight blindness and getting killed from no where.
Btw I'll try everything before I decide not to like it, I had Origin installed, I just didn't like it or the possibilities it held over my games library if I even made a mistake.

Dead Island was pretty glitchy at launch, but a week later modders made it pretty great. Graphics were good, Melee combat was head & shoulders above Skyrim's, & it was fun.

I'll probably nab the sequel.

Battlefield 3 is $9.50 at GamersGate, Bad Company 2: Ultimate Collection is $8.55. (all prices assume use of elder-geek.com coupon code for an extra 5%)

Witcher 2: Enhanced Ed. is $6.45

Dead Space 3 is $39.99 at GG as well (coupon won't apply).

[Edit: My 20% discount won't apply to the single copy of DS3 but applies to the 2-pack. So I could get two copies for $28 each. Primary issue being that I don't know that I'd play it any time soon and don't need two copies.]

$55 seems to be the settled "Buy It Now" mark for the Bioshock: Infinite/Tomb Raider bundle on eBay. Not a bad deal for $110 worth of games at release. Assuming you intend to play them immediately, of course -- no good to backlog them until they're 66% off on Steam.

If you don't want to risk someone sending you a used code from ebay, and don't want to drop the money on a new video card right now (I'm actually seriously considering buying this because of the game bundle), Gamersgate has the best deal I've seen so far for Bioshock Infinite:

Gamersgate Email of Doom wrote:

This week we re-launched our pre-order for BioShock Infinite! Not only can you pre-order the Season Pass, when you pre-order the original game you get the following bonuses:

30% Back in BlueCoins
A Free copy of BioShock
A Free copy of one of the following titles:
Spec Ops The Line
The Darkness 2
Civilization V
BioShock 2
Mafia 2

The pre-order offer will go live on February 22nd (Friday) at 6pm GMT!

Provided you'll use the blue coins, that's a good deal. Even better if you have the 20% Comp discount. You can select the game without the extra titles, get the 20% off and the blue coin refund, bringing your total to about $28. I think you still get Bioshock 1 but I assume everyone on earth has Bioshock by now.

Speaking of, my AMD card off eBay arrived today. Unscratched!

Amazon changed their BS:I offer to $30 in 2K credit after release. Too many people buying the pre-order, using the initial $15 credit and canceling the order.

We warned the rep that would happen but he wanted to try it anyway in the vain hope the internet wasn't completely made up of scammers. Now they have the data to the contrary.

Steam decided to answer this question for me. Black Ops 2 MP is free for the weekend. Spent about an hour playing, honestly I don't feel it handles to bad, it's alittle off, but I can chalk that up to not having played a spectacle shooter(or twitch shooter) recently. Did a few rounds of Normal matches, and Hardcore matches, Utterly failed on Hardcore (<1 K/D) and did ok on Normals (>1 K/D). Part of that I will guess is map familiarity, as I haven't played any of these maps and don't know the ambush spots.

Don't bother with sniping in BlOps2. It's only manageable in 3 maps and, all 3 leave you out in the open when you try to snipe.

Meh, I never really tried to snipe in any of the CoD games (Cept Cod4:MW on a few maps) as most of the maps dont fit with sniping in general. I'm more of a SMG/AR type person in twitch shooters. Planetside 2 on the other hand, I love to snipe.

My impression (from watching my brother play on his 360) is that sniping is fairly useless in general. Guns seem relatively accurate at long range, so assault rifles handle distances almost as well as snipers.

Dragon Age: Origins Ultimate Edition is $5.69 on Gamersgate with 5% elder-geek.com coupon.
Dragon Age 2 is $2.65 w/ coupon

Or get both in the Complete pack for $7.59 w/ coupon

Amazon's had the pack for about that price point once or twice before but I haven't seen the a la carte pricing on DA2 for that low previously.

I recently played Alan Wake, it's easily worth that price. The last hour or so before the end is a bit unnecessary, but aside from that it's a fantastic game. Good story, good graphics, good game play, and it's one of those games that stays with you long after you finish it.

Thanks Joph I just added it to my Humble account and added the games to my Steam, and added DD Beat Hazard and Nightsky to hers since I have those already.

As for the Mirrors Edge, No clue.

I think Im going to grab the Burnout and maybe Hot Pursuit, Not really a race fan but always liked the Burnout series cause explosions. Same ish with Hot Pursuit (Played at a friends the other night its was ok).
Bulletstorm and Alice are tempting also I know they got mediocre reviews, but for 4 bucks thats a steal.

So, Is it worth 4 dolla ***? Seems 2 play throughs to decide it would cover the 4 dollar cost lol. Also with Alice I was a fan of the first one, never beat it but I remember fond memories of raging at the jumping puzzles.

Change that to my Galaxy Nexus and I'm right there with you. I own a decent number of them. I've played very, very few. The reality is that, if I'm in a gaming mood and at my PC, I'm going to end up playing the big titles. Particularly because I tend to buy games that have replay value, which also leads to my other games being woefully unfinished.

Mass Effect and Dragon Age have easily absorbed the majority of my gaming time in the past 2-3 years or however long it is since I first played them. Add on the various MMOs I might end up playing (at the moment, LotRO, RIFT, TOR, and sometimes EVE). Then we have other big titles I have yet to finish, but fully intend to, like Portal 2, Kingdoms of Amalur, and Deus Ex: Human Revolution.

On top of THOSE we have the big titles that you don't so much finish as never stop playing, like Civ V and Torchlight. Plus solid Indie RPGs like Trine and Bastion.

And, well, that doesn't leave much time for Machinarium, LIMBO, NightSky, Samorost 2, Dear Esther, Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet, and Vessel (to name the ones in my Steam library that are popping out at me).

I understand the sentiment. I've bought games for Android that were available on the PC just because I know I'll never sit at my computer and play them. But I might play it while laying on the couch or waiting at the doctor's or something.


Yeah, that's exactly it. Like I am bussing to the doctor today - so that's a time I might play these kind of titles.

While we are talking about it has anyone tried nightsky? I've been eyeing it up on the 3ds eshop for months now but I never feel quite convinced of buying it. Mostly cause it is a bit pricey for an eshop title (yes I am a cheap *******) and it doesn't neatly fit into a genre I know I will like. If it was some grindy rpg I would probably already own it... but I can't figure out exactly what kind of game it is from looking at the description.

Change that to my Galaxy Nexus and I'm right there with you. I own a decent number of them. I've played very, very few. The reality is that, if I'm in a gaming mood and at my PC, I'm going to end up playing the big titles. Particularly because I tend to buy games that have replay value, which also leads to my other games being woefully unfinished.


Yesh, that is exactly it. I've barely played skyrim, minecraft (PC version), and Civ 5, and I have a bunch of other titles I have played for 1 hour or less. But even just those three, I've only played for like 20 hours each, which is nothing with how much could come out of them.

When I get off work I can finally try it out and give you my impressions. But that's not until after 5 EST.

That's fine, I am at work now and then heading to a drs appointment and have no money loaded to download new stuff on it at all ... so I can wait. I'd appreciate the thoughts though.
