News Comments > BioShock Infinite GMG Pre-order Bonuses [Updated]
4. Re: BioShock Infinite Pre-order Bonuses Get Bonuses Feb 23, 2013, 14:12 Tumbler
 
That xcom deal-o is really hard to pass on simply because I know I can sell/trade that code easily. VGFive.com (new game trading site) let's people trade steam codes among other things and I picked up Assassin's Creed 3 from someone on the site recently. I already have Xcom so assuming I found someone wanting to trade for it I could hopefully get another game down the road, DMC on PC should be equal value on the site soon...and it's just sitting there saying "Buy me!, BUY ME!"

So tempting...

Oh my, free Xcom plus they let u gift if u have it already? The push to buy guys is coming from so many directions. Gmg will give me $14 and an older game, steam will give me Xcom, amazon will give me $30 in credits to buy 2k games.... Must hold out. Must not buy at launch.

I picked up BF3 on sale for $34.99 just after launch. I did not find it to be the game for me. Don't expect I'll be seeing anything in BF4 that will impress me.

I'm expecting Crysis 2 -> Crysis 3 to be similar to BF3 to BF4. Just a new set of maps and a ...bow of some sort.

I picked up Far Cry 3 and Assassin's Creed III on the pc and I'm playing those with a controller. (happily) I play CoD on the PS3 (with a controller obviously) and I played CoD on the PC during a free weekend using the K/B mouse and hated it.

The way the mouse allows you to spin at blinding speed and be ultra accurate kind of ruins the gameplay for me. I like the pacing of the Console experience where if someone is shooting at you and they aren't already close to your aiming point you're kind of fucked.

I'd be fine with Mouse/Keyboard folks simply having their own little area while others with controllers have their own area.

And lot of the language they used plus the phone interaction have me concerned. How do you keep people coming back for 50 to 100 hours of game play month after month. Then that phone message thing saying Venus is awesome tonight. It sounds like an mmo. No sub but the only way you can have that much content is to make those cookie cutter missions in mmos. They could be talking about something like planet side 2 which would be interesting or maybe dust 514. I hope it's something like borderlands where there is a sp story to play through and others can join you on the fly.

Oh joy, see those fucking "triggers". You SEE THOSE!?

I could give a fuck about everything else there but you're going to ship those weird rounded ball sack simulators again!? Are you fucking kidding me!?

Honestly, after seeing the difference in quality between the "demo" and the "final" I will never order a gearbox product until there's a clear consensus on what the final game looks like.

Well that is pretty amazing. I don't remember watching any of that, no wonder people are upset.

Watched the Giantbomb quicklook and while the game didn't look amazing I thought it looked acceptable. Maybe a point less than homefront. Homefront had a lot of the same issues I'm seeing in this game but that was a while ago so maybe this one is being judged more harshly.

Looking at Metacritic Homefront got a 70 and this game seems to be getting a 45-50. Seems like a 50-60 might be more fair but meh, can't say I really care one way or the other.

I thought I saw a comment on destructoid that the press had been shown a "demo" that shows gameplay that isn't in the game? Wasn't clear if he was saying they created a demo specifically to fool the press and then sold a totally different game? Or if it's just content that isn't in the full game?

you can't just farm regularly in many areas due to lack of respawns.

I am not thinking people need to farm in this game. It's a waste of time. It's a waste of money to buy DLC and a waste of time to farm. This all seems to be much ado about nothing. It feels like EA came running in at the last minute and made them put these DLC packs in there. This is not a situation like Diablo 3 where they totally fuck the game up in order to drive people towards these dlc packs.

People thinking they need to farm in this game is weird.

The people willing to spend $3 to save some time and get ahead are not going to go pick up something, save, reload and waste how much time picking up these resources? The people who want to spend money won't even know this exists.

I..I really want that boxed set...I'm not really sure why because I have no interest in the content...I think I just really like this company and want to give them money.

How do they do that.

Maybe it's the brick walls, I definitely dig their office.

It's started to feel like all these shenanigans around Sim City and now crysis 3 are just an excuse to let people know about these games. Like some sort of backwards marketing attempt. If people get all up in arms about it I guess that would be a good sign as that means a lot of people want to buy it?

Hard for me to believe either one of these games is as popular as these silly issues make them appear.

Crysis 3? Who knows.

So far it seems a lot like Crysis 2. I find this game hard to look at. At a glance you might think, WOW! Look how awesome that looks!" But then you start running around and you get these blur effects, everything seems way too busy, you try and aim down your sights, a red dot sit that is supposed to be helpful and it feels like it's in the way more than anything else...

This game definitely taxes my system but Nvidia is really pissing me off lately. They just released a set of drivers that is supposed to help with this game but they don't support my card. (560M GTX) Not only that but the previous 3 releases don't fucking work!? Half the games I try and play simply crash at launch with almost no explanation.

Rolling all the way back to 306.97 (4 version back I believe) and things finally start working again but WTF?!

Crysis MP has never been very good. Crysis 1 they tried to create a brand out of called crysis wars and it was trying to be a Battlefield sort of game but it never felt quite right. Everyone was a super soldier so it kind of loses the cooperative classes stuff that generally makes the BF series more than just a shooting match.

Crysis 2 they tried to make it like Call of Duty but I think the theme hurt them more than anything else. Most every map was of a destroyed building or place in new york and of course everyone is a super soldier again. You could outfit your guy with different weapons but I don't think they did a lot of balance testing because the standard rifle seemed to be able to kill better than anything else. Maybe their lag coding wasn't good, I don't know, I just found the experience utterly boring.

Crysis 3? Who knows.
