Damn, 3 more months, maybe enough time to binge watch all the episodes.  
The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders.That is easy.All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.It works the same way in any country.

I don't watch the show either but I did like the one about scientology and tom cruise being in the closet.

Really looking forward to this, doubt I will preorder it though.

They make a great world to adventure through, amazing editors and have overall very good story plots. But I can't think of any AAA RPG game developer with worst writers, in story, dialog and NPCs.

Whether it's being forced to listen to Linda Carter saying "I'm am forced to carry your burdens" or Fallout 3's infantile dialog. "Have you seen a middle aged guy, I'm looking for my father."

I'm playing through SWKOTOR2 right now and some of the characters are just one info-dump after another. I "got" what was going on after the first two lines but I'm having to click through a wall of text so I can get to go DO something (doing something being the point of a game).

I'm actually starting to lean more towards liking NPCs that have simple dialogue. If I want to read a lot of back story or detailed explanation I'd much rather read it in an in-game journal or book.

This goes doubly if I have to listen to a voice actor read from a script.

Without getting into the obvious shortage of time they had for development, I'm pretty sure they didn't have time to fine tune the dialog. Obsidian did mention KotOR2 was a dialog and story structure experiment. Trying to improve/recreate the feel of Planescape and they obviously learned a lot. Constantly experimenting (Alpha Protocol) and improving (New Vegas), their dialog and writing, unlike Bethesda.

Also in their defense, they were arguing against the Force. While it might be passe now days, att it was a bold move. Since then, there have been many Dark side games made, Obsidian was one of if not the first.

Bethesda seems completely egocentrical about their writing, using sales of a mainly adventure/exploration game as self justification. Reality is, their dialog is less then 1/10 of the of the game mechanic. Also their low quality and low mentality dialog is pretty much universally panned.

Amazing work !

We could see quite a few games with this even though consoles can't really keep up. Since Unreal engine has always been very scalable. PC versions will have higher physics and resolutions, not so sure about AI function.

Good fun, best arpg I've played despite the issues. Mine are mainly being disconnected between 6pm and 10pm. Minor desync issues, mostly play on normal servers. My current friend group, don't now the meaning of backing off and would last about 10 min in hardcore.

Farcry 3 is the same price on Amazon that activates on Uplay. I don't own any Uplay titles, so I'm completely unfamiliar with it. Does it have an offline mode like Steam? From what I understand so far, if you buy it on Steam, you have to launch it on Steam first, which then brings up Uplay, then the game. Or since it's registered to your Uplay account, can you skip Steam and just launch it from Uplay?

If you have to jump through two DRM hoops by buying it on Steam, it sounds better to just buy it from Amazon and register it on Uplay.
If I understand your question correctly, this is worst part of the game, but uplay is unavoidable, afaik. Think, I have to start Steam (so far, I've always been on it) and it launches uplay (it launches the game). However, even though uplay is completely intrusive malware, you can set it to offline mode. Apparently they monitor you anyway, as every time I quit, get a thanks for playing popup.

In case you didn't know, it's a big open world but the vehicles don't spawn correctly. So when you get to a base, without a boat or buggy that should be there, you have Save first, then quit and restart the game for them to appear correctly.

Not to mention ubi forces punkbuster install, whether you play competitive or Coop. Then when you uninstall, ubi leaves that trash 3rd party monitoring malware on your PC. Iirc, had to download a special uninstaller from punkastards to remove it.

Also the achievements seem to be on ubi, not steam.

Could this be used to play the game Coop with friends, or is it intended just for deathmatch/pvp style gameplay?

ea/bioware is so broken, I doubt they could even make a good KotOR single player, again.

Oh well, guess I'll have to wait till the Winter Sale or get lucky with a Flash sale . The 3 games (skyrim, Far Cry 3 and Tomb Raider) I need dlc on are still stuck at 50% off.

Give us a report on the DLC. I was holding off, since it sounded like Challenge events, which sounded like more spam spawning.

Skyrim is the same way...they still want a minimum of $10 each for the two main DLCs...
If you have Vanilla Skyrim, can't you just buy the Legendary edition and, in effect, add all the DLC to your vanilla copy? Well, if the 75% off hadn't finished.

This. The next time I'm gonna hear an adult whine about the Skyrim DLC prices when the Legendary version is going away for 13 euros, I'm gonna shoot someone.
Lol, why would a person buy Legendary if they already have Skyrim? Then you have 2 Skyrim games and 1 Dlc. I'm new to Steam so I don't know all the rules but are you guys suggesting we can just give away the Skyrim from Legendary and keep the Dlc ?

Doesn't this use CryEngine 3?
It uses some form of crytek engine, since they gave them credit in the closing credits.

A pretty good indie title, I'd give it 75 atm but a 86 if fix the camera/FOV issues and spawn spamming of zombs every 10 feet.

It's and open world but you can't really run around exploring very much due to the spawning and weight limit. They don't put items back in chests or drop(iirc) items on the ground.

It needs some work but on the plus side it's 50% off today on Steam.

... Also they have the Risen 2 + DLC bundle on for $6? Is that worth it?
Did you see this? Risen Franchise Pack [Download] At least to me, they are easily worth $7.00. Probably not as good as Gothics but damn close. You will defiantly know your are playing a PB game.

Buy the regular Steam edition on Amazon for $7.49 and then buy the Far Cry3 Deluxe Bundle DLC from Steam for $4.99. I just grabbed the two, so it works!
Excellent, thanks! Can't believe I missed the Far Cry3 Deluxe Bundle DLC in my search. Sleeping

It always seems we get just a taste on Thanksgiving, but the real deals are during the winter sale.

I found the opposite to be true last year, especially the Steam sale.
Good, if there anything like your Reddit/Amazon it will be great and thanks for the list, btw!

Anyone now if there's a way to upgrade Far Cry 3 to Deluxe or buy extra dlc ? A friend is worried he won't be able to play Coop with us, if he can't upgrade. The amazon deal for $7.49, is a steal if you don't already have it.

Edit: Also is the Saints Row 3 main story fully coop, a couple of us are thinking about getting it for Coop? The Full Package Looks like another steal at 7.49.
