Anyone care to guess the likelihood of Dishonored going lower than 50%?

For Steam? Not a chance in hell for this sale, it is already on 50% as a daily deal.

GreenMan is probably your best shot with a coupon. I am goign to use my 35% on it when it goes on a good sale.

I am not a graphical guru by any stretch of the imagination, but I thought Metro 2033 looked absolutely amazing.

Well, maybe it will be better with the FOV fix...as it currently feels like I am looking through a paper towel cardboard tube. 23 inch monitor WS and it feels like a 17 inch square tube. So.....

I don't know what, if anything, is going on.

But, I've seen in a couple past games where maxing everything screwed stuff up (dunno if it was from drivers or just they didn't expect anyone to be able to max everything). So my suggestion would be to turn everything down a notch, or choose medium settings, as a first step to seeing what might be wrong.

HOLY F!

I started playing Metro. The game looks like ASS! I have everything maxed, I am not impressed. Also, who the F sets a FOV to 45!?!?!?!?!?!

I agree with Cutter on this one the game was really pretty good & I remember thinking the graphics were outstanding. Hmm

Graphics, A!? No man.. sorry but compared to what? Bioshock? Which debateably looks better still.

The stale, bland graphics were one of the reasons the game underwhelmed me greatly.

Why isn't the Mechwarrior franchise on Steam or GOG? I can't find it anywhere (although I DL'd MW4: Mercenaries for free)

Probably has something to do with licensing. There is a real quagmire surrounding BattleTech.

That's not right. It's not the prettiest game in the world but it should look good. I know most folks around here loved that game, myself included.

Picked it up and regret it already.
Graphics look like crap, game plays like it is on rails, one quick time movie after another, mouse controls are weird. Sigh
Oh well, at least I did not pay full price for it. I should have tried the "demo" first

Sims still takes $155 to get all the DLC even on sale. If they ever offer a PACKAGE DEAL where I can get the whole thing for a reasonable price, I'd probably get it.

I picked up the darksiders set from amazon (redeemed on steam), both so I could get codes for the stuff I didn't use (already had DS1, and it oddly gave you an uneeded code for one of the DLC), and because it was cheaper.

Interestingly thats NOT the same beth bundle as whats on steam for $90:
http://store.steampowered.com/sub/18743/

While they both include a lot of the same games, the steam one includes id stuff like quake and doom, while the gamersgate one includes things like rogue warrior and hunted something or other (which is doubly odd considering that gamersgate says they are steamworks).

Going to repost what I did in the previous thread:

Not going to get them all at $60+. Now if they had a 75% off on the PACK as well, I'd probably pick it up. Plus I already own the best of them in steam, most of the splinter cell ones.

Since I was bored:

Metascore 68

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter
Metascore 80

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2
Metascore 76

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon

I'd agree with all of those. And yet, for whatever reason, I just never have this burning itch to play more Dishonored. It really soured me when they sent me right back to the same fucking level I had just completely cleared, and suddenly everyone was alive again, everything was filled again, all the houses had all their loot again, blegh. That was just a piece of crap to do that. Even IF you're going to do it, then send me back like five fucking missions later. Not right-a-fucking-way, (in the game it's literally the next day) and suddenly everything's back where it was.

The next level after that was new, fortunately, but I saved right when I started that, quit, and haven't gone back in like a week. And every time I think "What shall I play?", I look at Dishonored, and go "Hmm... no."

Can't really put my finger on it. When I'm playing it I'm having a lot of fun, but it just doesn't grip me. It's probably the terrible excuse for a story that turns me off.

C- for side quests? Why? I thought they were great. The only problem is that there were so few of them.

I didn't find the side quest stories really interesting or drawn out. If they were more like Fallout with a little deeper content I might of enjoyed them more, instead they were very simple in the narrative.
