CoH2 is still too expensive. You are still looking at over $30 to get everything and you can't even just get one bundle. Then there is Ardennes Assault which is stand-alone and just released at $44 (CDN).

The SP campaigns are bad to be honest, you basically just buy in for the MP. Ardennes adds nothing no new units or etc so it can be safely skipped. You only need the base game and the Western Front armies addon to do all of the MP related stuff which at $18 is a pretty good value IMO. But if you're not going to play it often then *shrug*. I think their next game will be F2P, they certainly seem to be heading in that direction.

I have no interest in MP. I'd play the campaigns (maybe) and play co-op with a friend...who owns all of it. So just getting the base game and 1 dlc doesn't really work for me.

They already tried CoH Online and it failed miserably. Relic isn't the same Relic it once was. Most of the founders and the lead designers on their older games are all gone now.

Well I'm safe today. No prices I'm willing to pay. I find it interesting that games that have been on sale in recent weeks are actually priced higher now than they were on sale before. I seem to recall that in past sales too. I guess pubs/devs are trying to take advantage of people more willing to throw money around right now.

For that reason this is a good website to keep in the bookmarks: http://isthereanydeal.com/
What I can remember from previous years this sale was always weaker than the actual Steam Christmas sale coming up in a month.
Even then greenmangaming always have a better deal than Steam does. Can't remember the last time I bought a game directly from Steam.

I was refering to big sales as a whole, not this sale versus the xmas sale. This sale and the xmas sale have the same prices due to their close proximity (as evidence from the leaked doc last year). We will just see less on sale now than at xmas.

Examples would be Sir You Are Being Hunted, Walking Dead Season 2, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes...all on my wishlist and they have already been cheaper at previous sales in the last few weeks or so. Granted they are not on a daily deal today...so they may still show up cheaper.

Another good example...Shadowgate was on sale just 4 days ago on Steam for $7.

The early poor word of mouth, the expensive and numerous DLC's...not interested in being bled dry by Relic for a game I'll barely play.

The same stuff and same that goes on sale in the fall is repeated during the winter sale, and they'll probably do the card crap during the winter sale again. You might as well wait and spend your money then so you can sell the cards to make a little back.
I vaguely remember this card thing they had going.
You get cards for each purchase, but you're saying you can sell them back or soemthing?

Sell them on the Market in Steam.

I was stuck with the deliberate bug in Titan Quest where early in the first act, performance would go to crap and it would be unplayable. I went to the forums and was ridiculed and abused by posters and stuff alike for pirating the game, as it was deliberately included to kick in for hacked versions.

My problem, once I'd established with IL that I was a legitimate customer, was that securom was allowing the game to load but then insisting my disk was a copy and kicking in the deliberate corruption bomb once I'd start playing the game.

So yeah, while I'm happy for game companies to try and combat piracy, I get pissed as fuck when it affects their paying customers. If you can't discriminate well enough, don't fucking bother...

So you were ridiculed and abused by posters...not the dev team.

It's widely known that the game had this problem. It was a problem with the DRM on legit CD copies. I may not be remembering this correctly, but I think it was actually the other way around...people that pirated the game didn't have this problem.


As for comparisons, I do recall the first few days after Tribes was released. It was hilarious seeing all the idiots that didn't even change their name before playing. They were all running around with "DaJackal" over their heads.

Well..... Technically it did, right? I mean, if you wipe out a patrol of bad guys, more of them will show up randomly.

This only applies if you never take over nearby Outposts. Once you take over an outpost, enemy activity and reinforcements just driving or walking by drops to next to zero.

"Keep in mind that both Pirates and Privateers will not be seen in the game world much after you have liberated all the outposts.
...
After patch 1.05, all outposts can be reset when the player has completed the story line."

So as I was saying last week...I'm surprised Ubisoft hasn't been unloading FarCry 3 on the cheap...

And sold!

They're offering a fairly normal pre-order discount.

Offering a 10% discount for 2 weeks and then pulling it when the game doesn't even come out until next year; and they aren't even showing what the pre-order bonuses are yet...this isn't "normal".

I'm not playing a marketing game.

It also requires uplay and you no longer can buy it on steam. I am glad this way I dont have to see any more crap from ubi anymore. Hope UBI just dissapears.

Far Cry 3

They removed Far Cry 4, which at this point I don't care about as I won't be paying launch price anyways.

I've been watching for FarCry 3 to go on sale for about a month, and nothing. I'm surprised Ubisoft isn't throwing FC3 up for sale to generate more interest or even including it as a pre-order bonus.

Far Cry 3 was on sale more than a few times the past year or so, I expect it'll be on sale again for the Steam Holiday sale if you want to wait. I got it for like $7.50 or something and it was easily worth 2-3x that, by any measurement.

isthereanydeal.com shows it was that low like 7 months ago on gmg.com, so you may have to look outside of Steam to find a really low price.

Yes, but I said the last month, which is when I've had a computer that can run it properly. And I want it on Steam otherwise I could have got it from either Humble or GMG, forget where I saw it recently.

I'm just surprised that Ubisoft hasn't been doing fire sales on FC3 as most companies do when a new version of a series is coming out.

I tried hard to love DA:O, but it needs so much micromanagement. I really like it, but TES games are much more my thing, very freeform and a little looser around the edges.

Micromanagement? Sure to a point, but nothing unexpected. Did you never play Baldurs Gate, Icewind Dale...or any of those style of games? It's the same for all of them and that should not change as far as I'm concerned.

Every TES game needs to be modded heavily to make them worth playing and fix up the UI.

I don't think I'll ever play it on PS3 again...but despite my disdain for Rockstar, I am tempted to get GTAV on PC and will likely crumble when the release date rolls around.

Just get that shit through alternate means. Don't fall for Rockstar's double and triple dipping nonsense.

But the whole point would be to pick up where I left off with the Online game. As they have said that your online toon will carry over to PC/PS4/xbone for those that want it. And whenever Heists do finally come out, I'll be playing it on PC with others.

If all I cared about was playing the single player again, I'd just do that on PS3.

Wishing there was a mouse/keyboard with analog buttons...for driving.

Yeah, I ran across that article a few months back. All the url's for mod files are 404's After all, the article is 4 years old...

And if you Google search those mod names, you can easily still find them.

I don't own X-Wing Alliance or I might try this out. But I'm guessing you don't get all the story stuff doing it this way, just the missions.

People are probably busy, presumably like you since you weren't volunteering that information for them either.

Because I don't blindly buy old shit off GOG hoping that it works properly. See my last post. If you already have the Collectors Series CDs, this GOG release is a waste of money and isn't even the newest version of those games.

Reposting this as I edited my last post.

Just came across this this guide here to get the Collectors Series CDs installed on Win7 64bit systems.

I just went through the instructions for installing Tie Fighter and it worked without issue. So if you own the Collectors Series CDs, you are better off installing that than buying the GOG low res release.

seems like the answers are on gog forums

[url=http://www.gog.com/forum/general/release_star_wars_tie_fighter_special_edition/page7[/url]

looks like you can either run it in dos mode (320x200) or windows 95 mode which uses xwing vs tie fighter engine that takes away more than it gives, mainly dynamic music and messes up the physics for the sake of multiplayer balance - even though this is single player.

people are clamoring for the 95 collectors cd edition that's not part of the release.

In 1995, TIE Fighter also received a Collector's CD-ROM. The CD-ROM version offered optional enhanced SVGA graphics, increasing the game's resolution from 320x200 to 640x480.[2] The cinematic cutscenes were also enhanced, and the game received numerous voiceovers. The CD-ROM includes the previously released Defender of the Empire expansion and an additional Enemies of the Empire expansion.


Yea I own the Collectors Series and it won't install. And seeing as what is on GOG is the older, lower res version...I'll be passing on this.

Just came across this guide here to get the Collectors Series installed. I haven't tried it yet. But might be worth a look for some.

OMG you guys are pathetic. I didn't even say anything bad about the games and you are immediately getting into defensive fanboy mode.

Peoples nostalgia over how the original games means nothing to me. As my nostalgia over the games would mean nothing to you.

I want to know how the current releases function and how they look and at what resolutions are available...among other issues, features, etc.

Guess I'll just go get my answers from another forum where people don't have giant sticks shoved up their ass.
