Yeah, where's the pill that replaces sleep? I could get a lot of extra gaming done in those 6-7 hours each night!

DARPA has it, its a military project (for now). And yes I want it too! But man that is going to be ripe for abuse.

Thanks for the feedback folks. It sounds to me like the game doesn't really add to the franchise and that even though the game isn't horrible and I would only be out 6 bucks, my time could probably be better used on something else.

It is one of the things I love about the new XCOM game...it holds up very well to my rose-tinted memories of the original game. The comments here do not give me confidence that my experience with Syndicate would be the same.

It has absolutely nothing to do with the original and is nothing like it. It's just a name on the box though, that matters little to whether the game is worthwhile or not.

Anyway, if you don't like average shooters then I would agree it's not worth the time.

Hmm, sounds interesting! I would try it as long as it doesn't have any crazy side-effects such as suicide, death, ED, etc..

XCOM:EU on sale for 33% off. Time for me to pick it up, even though I don't have time to play it yet.

I don't get the bloom complaints, it's supposed to look like Blade Runner future.

It's pretty simple, the bloom was overdone to the point of silliness and done very late in development for seemingly no reason. Comparing the promotional shots to the retail release is almost comical. Adding a shitload of bloom is not the same thing as creating atmosphere. I don't think it's a bad game because of the bloom but it's not exactly hard to see why it bothers people.

I agree it has a shit ton of bloom, I just don't think that means insta-bad. Most people who complain about bloom want everything to look realistic, but I'm not as focused on that. I thought Syndicate looked different and interesting.

Greenmangaming has stopped working for me. I tried buying Mass Effect 3 four different times with 4 different cards and I keep getting an error saying the transaction could not be completed. Too bad - with my 10 dollar credit and 20% off coupon it would only be $2.80

Have you tried their support? Almost sounds like an account problem.

Considering Syndicate at 6 bucks on Friday morning.

Anybody already have it? I know it was underwhelming..but is it 6 bucks worthy?

It's a fun 5 hours or so. Got some console stuff in it that's annoying but no more than was common a few years ago. I don't get the bloom complaints, it's supposed to look like Blade Runner future.

You'll probably get six bucks worth of entertainment out of it but it has really nasty bloom, limited FOV, requires Origin - some people get their skirt in a ruffle over it.

Don't think I will be getting much during the sale. My library is huge right now....I don't have anything that is a must have right now.

I'm almost disappointed that I won't be spending ridiculous amounts of money during any of the upcoming Steam sales. I have almost everything I want, and my library and backlog are so huge at this point that I'll probably never play all of the games I own.

Speaking of, Sleeping Dogs at $16.99 there. But it ends tomorrow morning - act fast!
