Damn, anyway I try to get to Amazon's PC Digital Downloads, it's 400 pages! I really miss that list we got occasionally from Reddit. It was just a strait list down the page no icons, separated by each date what was going to be on sale during the holidays. Urk

I'm genuinely shocked that Bioware Points are on sale. This may very well be the very first time ever. Sadly, the discount is only 33%. Bioware's DLC is so overpriced that 75% is the minimum discount required to be worthwhile.
FYI, using a VPN like cyberghost is the best solution. You can usually get up to 50% off depending on your current region. Here's a thread on Biowares own site, talking about how to do it. The thread is a year old and most recently tested in the last 30 days as still working. The procedure is a little different from a year ago, just make sure to read the posts. Ahoy

Nice find! Sadly, even 50% off is still too little. When Mass Effect Trilogy routinely goes on sale for $15 and offers over 100 hours of gameplay, paying $20 for a few hours of ME3 DLC is absurd.
Oh I agree it's still priced too high. I'm just looking out for ME2 DLC if it's a good dead. I decided not to buy any more ea origin games, the last two I played were ME2 and DA Origins.

Edit: Oh wait, this could stack, getting the 50% of then using it to buy the 33% dlc? Damn, I'm too tired atm, brain not working...must sleep! Sleeping

Some other strange things I noticed besides Dungeon Lords. Mafia 2 is still down for the count and while UBI has almost all of their games on sale Stick of Truth isn't.

Stick of Truth is now on sale on Steam for $7.49 (75% off).
Just noticed it, thanks.

Thought all the sales prices were set with the new Steam sales? I posted last night how Stick of Truth was one of the only UBI games not one sale, now it's on sale.

Edit: The DLC seems to be regular price, but Amazon has them on sale. Ultimate Fellowship Pack $.75 US and Samurai Spaceman Pack $.50 US, so game and dlc is $8.75.

Just bought a game from GOG. Then tried buy 2 games from G2A, for the fist time. Got a message saying the credit card failed, 4 times and no luck. I called the cc company, they said no problems and they are not denying it. 20 minutes on Live Chat with G2A support, they told me to call the cc company. Middlefinger . Guess I'll try Kinguin.

Are you doing it through Paypal? Might want to double check with your CC provider's security because the same shit happened to me at first. Turns out G2A is flagged in their database so there was, in fact, some sort of block. They removed it and it's worked fine since.
Thanks for the tip, actually I did finally get Venetica and Frayed Knights from G2A, at 50% off Steams current sale prices. It turns out it was a cross site check being done via script at the last second for the visa approval. NoScript blocks cross site transfers by default, so I temporarily disabled the function and went through. Both keys worked, well at least I haven't been kicked off Steam yet ! Party2

Oddly enough, I thank you for telling me this! Even with it's reputation Dungeon Lords is a blast in some form or another. Glad it's on steam finally, going to buy it right now.
Oh I've been interested in the past at least. I'm just laughing through the pain ! Zombie

This is actually the 4th release and they still haven't even come close to a stable multiplayer. In their defense, Nordic has patched it extensively and has a developer in forums talking about future updates.

According to the forums the Coop is pretty much DOA still but single player is possible. Of course it's being sold as Coop, too! Backstab

I dread steam sales now, cause the front page scroll is at least 1000 and takes 15 minutes minimum.

Saw a couple mention Amazon, did they have their holiday sale yet, I don't recall seeing it?

Yeah, I get your point. I just thought despite UBI flaws (not to mention forced third party login while on Steam), they do a pretty good job on open world. Their random discovery areas, base capture system, shooting mechanics and driving (cars, boats and heli) are all good. It's true they aren't the best at everything but usually the games are fun and solidly built. It would have been interesting to see their take on Post Apocalyptic setting. I don't think they would have any trouble competing with those 3 other companies.

It's hard to believe they went Primal instead of Post Apocalyptic! Slap

They are doing open world design pretty well and I could see them doing a much better job than Mad Max, Rage and not mention Fallout 4.

Oh, I thought GOG worked it's magic with DOSBox to get a pretty stable Daggerfall. Or it just could have been a wishful thinking, kind of daydream! Please

My understanding is that Daggerball was just a buggy buggy mess to start with. Can't fix that!
I bought it at release, and the major issue I remember was Sound Blaster incompatibility. Iirc it was one of the first to use the new SB tech. Also, wasn't there a patch or two to fix the broken quests. Since it's free, guess it really isn't as big of issue and it's probably the most stable version atm.

Yeah but are there more than three base gun models which do the same amount of damage regardless of your level?

If you're using guns in Dying Light, you're doing it wrong.

On a side note, I love how much post-release support Techland has given DL. It's surprising given that WB is the publisher and they have a pretty poor record of DLC and post-release support.
Support has been good, but the ability for the community to mod is still extremely weak compared to Fallout or Elder Scrolls. It's obvious how much of a benefit to longevity and sales full modding is to a company.

Too bad they don't offer Future Shock, wouldn't mind having it to complete my collection from the olden days! :Terminator Smiley here: Nod

Still, one free game and 2 more free games if you buy at least one Bethesda game is a great deal.

Almost everyone liked the starter island, but once you left it went down hill fast. Iirc, I don't think it did nearly as well as LotR, when it went F2P.

What? the starter island was dull, both Cimmeria and Stygia where a Conan fan's wet dream. The atmosphere in AOC was incredible.


I bet its gonna be a F2P moba
It's been so long I've forgotten, but did the voice acting stop after the starter island? It was like they ran out of money at level 30 and everything after (especially the addon/expansion) was a grind-fest.

I would advise against it, unless your a glutton for punishment! Biting Giggle
Even for free? Either way, I doubt I will every play it due to BUSY life (still haven't seen Ant-Man, SW:TFA, etc. :P).
Yeah, sadly. Iirc, it's not real F2P like Guild Wars 2 or LotRO, limited more like SWTOR to make you pay even if your not monthly.
