Is there a lot of players playing Chivalry MP? I haven't had time to play much MP games lately, but I've always wanted a game like this. Anyone want to go in on a 4-pack?

And to delay me from getting it back, they used my Apple account to wipe every one of my devices, my iPhone and iPad and MacBook, deleting all my messages and documents and every picture Id ever taken of my 18-month-old daughter.

I don't use apple products for other reasons, but if what he says is true that is the #1 reason to never use apple. I wouldn't want one company being able to remotely wipe all of my devices. And another point, what kind of moron doesn't keep external backups of important things like family pictures and documents?

Sounds like Apple products are going to take a nose dive in terms of quality.

It won't matter. Most apple people upgrade to the latest iCrap as soon as it comes out, so even if apple has to use a lower quality battery with a shorter life, most apple customers will never know.

Snuggle Truck eh?

It was in a Humble Android bundle. It's pretty fun on a tablet, and they actually give you the original Smuggle Truck version as well as the cutesy Snuggle Truck. I haven't played it on PC, but I assume it plays a bit like Trials 2.

Excellent find! NOW THE REST OF YOU GO BUY IT!

Waiting on Cutter's opinion! :)

I was considering getting it, but I think I'll wait to see what the winter sale has in store. If I bought it now it would be a month or more before I even got to it.

Green Man Gaming has some 50% to 75% off sales too with a 25% off coupon. Good deals like this are too hard to let go.

I fucking hate my ISP. Last year during the holiday sales my cable would randomly go out. It would last anywhere from a minute to several hours, and I missed a few deals because of that.

Yesterday about 4pm my cable went out again. I had to leave at 5:30 to meet family, but I wanted that hour and a half of internet time. It was up when I got home by round 10pm, but went out again not long after. When I got up this morning the cable was back up, but there are six new deals than what was up last night. They seem to be staggered by 12 hours, six deals with half expiring 12 hours apart, so I think I missed a set.

I was really hoping this one would make it. I played the shooting prototype and the weapon handling reminds me of Raven Shield. I couldn't get through the movement prototype (it's linked on the KS page) because you can't rebind the keys.

Anyone still playing PAYDAY? Played the hell out of it when it came out, and noticed the DLC is only a couple bucks. WOuld play it more if anyone else would like to hop on.....

I picked up the DLC during the last sale, but I have yet to play it. I haven't done much of any MP in a while, but I'm up for some.

There's a lot of indie games at a great price, like Cargo Commander.

Remember not to buy a game until the last day of the sale. Some games that are already marked down may show up as daily or flash deals at a higher discount.

Since The Walking Dead is a daily deal, and the last episode was also released today it's probably not going to be marked down more than 50%. I wonder if it will be cheaper during the end of year holiday sales?

Yeah there are a lot of games on sale that aren't listed on the main page. I keep things in my wish list for an easy way to check sale prices for games I want. There are a few that are 75% off that aren't listed, like Dungeons of Dredmor and its expansions.

I enjoyed the first episode of SiN. It sucked when they canned it after the first. If you also get the original SiN with it, you'd be crazy not to grab this at this price.

News Comments > Hitman: Absolution Reviews
16. Re: Hitman: Absolution Reviews Nov 18, 2012, 18:26 jimnms
 
I lost interest when I learned they removed the first person option that the previous games had. I prefer to play games from a first person perspective, and there are very few third person games I've been able to tolerate.

I watched some video (pr)reviews this morning and was going to grab it from GMG if it looked like the third person perspective was tolerable. I found it frustrating to even watch other people play it in 3rd person. The camera is way to close and the FOV too narrow, which gets even worse when you move into a close quarters interior. Although you shouldn't be doing much shooting, the shooting looks shitty, even on PC with a mouse.

One of the reasons that I don't like the 3rd person view is that it seems "cheaty" and kills the immersion. You see your character hiding behind a wall or other cover where he can't possibly see what's around it, yet you can swing your 3rd person camera around and see everything.

Even if it had the first person option, I think I would still pass on this. Maybe some of the AI features can be fixed in patches, but so far from what I've seen is that most of the levels aren't nearly as open as previous Hitman games. The first few hours or so are linear "tutorial" type missions. It looks like even some of the open areas feature linear missions with no optional ways to complete objectives.

I've yet to play more than about an hour of the GTA4 campaign thanks to the lousy controls and driving physics so I'm not holding my breath. It does look cool but a shitty PC port (and I'm usually defending such things) coupled with driving being unpleasant in a primarily driving game means I'll wait this one out.

Try this mod. The default handling physics were ok to me, but after using that mod, I can't go back to the stock handling. The high damage option in the mod is still too forgiving, so I used an editor to boost the damage multiplier to all cars to make it more realistic. It's much more fun and challenging running from the cops knowing your car isn't going to drive away from a 60 MPH head on crash.

The game is a fucking resource hog, its astounding really for what it is, drives the fans on the vid card
into overdrive, but then its running optifine as well dont know if its the cause. but even the server is a resource pig and it runs on linux to ,me happy :)

It doesn't cause my video card's fans to speed up. It does cause the CPU fan to speed up from silent to a slight whisper. I'm also running optifine, using AA and AF and boosting the view distance.
