Just wait 90 days max after the launch of virtually any game not by blizzard and there will be a notable discount/sale. I just wait for those to happen these days.

TL2 actually gets even better after level 40 at Veteran. Your characters can become very varied even if they are the same type.

Yikes -- its gonna be more like a freemium webgame/tablet game under the hood, than anything else. Disappointing.

thanks for that correction draginol and link -- I was wrong.

Tactical battles are still there and even more in depth. Check out this gameplay example:

the move to a tactical battle map is now gone, which for me is very disappointing. Looks more like Civ type battles now.

I'll definitely wait for lots of reviews.

All DLC is a plague on gaming.

Just wait: there will DLC for XCOM that will allow alien sieges on your bases. Something in the original game.

The only somewhat negative I heard so far is the in the fog of war the aliens dont start moving until you actually spot them. If that's true, that's a bit unexpected in a turn-based game of any sort. I wonder if they did that to keep the enemy turns shorter.

imho, the tactical combat part of the game looks great in the gameplay vids. Smaller teams and no action points arent deal-breakers.

not him at his best, though his sleeping dogs and guild wars2 videos offer some good points.

I want this game but the trailer above did nothing for me. The gameplay videos are awesome however.

If we are really lucky, a few years from now, someone other than Sandy Whathisname will be given the franchise and do something interesting with it.

Right now though? The mass effect franchise is on life support.

The article writer thinks there's a "pack mentality" to reviews on both the professional and gamer sides.

Sure I suppose that is a minor part of it all, but it doesn't sufficiently explain why so many major-website game reviews these days are nothing more than glossy PR blurbs.

The Elder Scrolls Adventures: Redguard -1998

was a fun but buggy game with a strange mix of pirates and dwarven ruins.

Particularly great looking for its time.

Agree with Beamer about the cool art style -- whoever designed the look and levels from that E3 video deserves lots of credit.

for all of its many faults RE2 has some great moments here and there. AKA the first time you see the licker. Or the first time the spiders appear and all you have is a knife.

what they are not really saying is they made some new maps and some bonus doo-dads and that's about it for this "adventure pack"

I played TR Anniversary and it had particularly terrible enemy AI that pretty much broke the game combat-wise. The super blurry textures in the remake didnt help either. TR's remake was not a good example to use in the article.

Halo -- the most incoherent plot of a game franchise from a major publisher. Dead Space is close though.
