The Amazon sale is GREAT. Picked up STO for 5.00 never played it but thought i would give it a shot?

What about subscription?

STO lost me the moment I went to their web site and saw they had all kinds of silly in game stuff for sale, within the first month, and you had to buy Cryptic Points. I figured if they were already withholding content that early, they were going to rape people come expansion time.

So far I've dumped about 13 hours into Just Cause 2. Terrible storyline with awful voice acting but great game mechanics & a lot of fun.

Not that it really matters, but I'd like to point out that the terrible storyline and awful voice acting in the game are deliberately done that way. It's called "camp." It's meant to be ridiculous and over the top. How are they ever going to do a game of a guy who stunt-jumps off and onto flying 747s while pulling parachutes out of his ass, and surviving terminal velocity by going FASTER, if they write a serious story behind it? It just wouldn't work.

It amazes me how nobody recognizes campy stuff anymore nowadays. Quite a few reviews of the game bitched about the "terrible voice acting."

Sigh.

Man, you just made me very nostalgic for NOLF.

Creston: It's tough to recognize it as deliberate because it's precisely as bad as the voice acting of many *serious* games. Honestly, it's better than crap like Oblivion.

It's just not quite over-the-top-awful enough to credit it with being anything other than typical horrible video game stereotyping.

grrr anyone used the wallet? I was up to 4 transactions in the sale so far and was hoping to put $5 into the wallet (bringing me up to the $50 I'd set aside).

Stupidly it seems you can't add to the wallet as part of a purchase, it kept taking me straight to the checkout bit rather than the cart... And why the arbitrary amounts too?

I was thinking of sticking $15 in now whilst the $AU is high ($5 for the end of this sale and $10 for picking up the stalker games if they ever come down to $5) but no go, couldn't even stack a $5 with a $10 since as I say you only seem to be able to buy one at a time with no other transaction.

i think thats probably the next frontier for Just Cause series - a really good, long storyline with lots of NPCs, ala GTA

they made huge progress from 1 to 2, so i think its totally possible.. they could reuse the engine and map, its already quite solid there
 
Go forth, and kill!

How is Cities XL 2011? I've liked the SimCity games since the original. I wish I'd never sold my copy of SimCity 4.
