great deal on the king's bounty games

they're also on sale individually, so if you only need one you can get it cheaper.

although, if you are buying any more than one, it's cheaper to get the bundle.  crazy steam sale again.

just the indie pack for me though.

if it let me, that is.  there's no add to cart button for the pulse pack.  you have to go to one of the individual game's pages, then you can get the add button for the pack.  a bit quirky.

just the indie pack for me.  tropico 3 gold is a great buy but i got that a while back on d2d.  arma 2 would be good but i had it for a while and couldn't get into it.

so, just like ac2 then.

I missed my chance to get the big compendium of the first 48 comics (about the fist six books iirc) yesterday but amazon has it for a decent price if you can get it without tax and shipping. I know the books go to 13 atm, so there is a lot of life to the tv series if they can keep going.
6971  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: GoGamer Black Friday deals on: November 25, 2010, 08:14:35 PM

6974  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Re: WTB: Space Rangers 2 + expansion on: November 25, 2010, 06:59:48 PM
i have the import copy of the first game only.  never could get into it enough to warrant the expansion.  lmk if you want it.

saw this on CAG:

Also, there will be more packs of indie games similar to today's Indie Energy Pack. 5 game per pack, on massive discount, one day only. Again, I don't know the daily order these will come in, or exactly what the discount will be, but, here's what the names and contents of the packs will be:

- Indie Air Pack: Altitude, DogFighter, Flotilla, Gratuitous Space Battles, Plain Sight
- Indie Clever Pack: Doc Clock: The Toasted Sandwich of Time, Eufloria, Iron Grip: Warlord, VVVVVV, World of Goo
- Indie Pulse Pack: Audiosurf, Beat Hazard, Bit Trip Beat, The Polynomial, Rhythm Zone
- Indie Puzzle Pack: Cogs, Droplitz, Puzzle Dimension, Shatter, Tidalis
- Indie Story Pack: And Yet It Moves, Gish, Puzzle Agent, Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale, Jolly Rover

damn, i think i will end up with most of those packs even though i already have a handful of the individual titles.  too bad you can't gift the surplus.
6976  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Steam Black Friday/Thanksgiving Sale 2010 is ON! Fill you wishlist up! on: November 25, 2010, 06:05:27 PM
new batch is up.
Eve online - $5

Cities XL 2011 - $ - $29.99
Deathspank - $10.04
Indie story pack - $5
Autiosurf - $2.50
Batman GOTY - $10.20
K&L 2 - $5.

probably going to pick up the indie pack as a buck a game is too sweet a price and consider K&L.

Regarding one of the Romulus Lairs:

Spoiler for Hiden:
Holy crap!  I just did a lair that had me going through twists and turns, dead ends, then I had to fight followers of Romulus not once but twice!  And the second fight area was on multiple levels.  I just don't see how I'll finish this one in 8 minutes.  Even if I knew the exact path to take through the maze, the second fight alone eats up a good amount of time.
if that's the one i am thinking of, it would help to get into combat before your enemies are on the same level as you, ie, slash their hands before they pull themselves up or crossbow them from a higher ledge.  i did that on the lair i think you are talking about and didn't even take damage from them.

i have a feeling this one is firmly going to nail activision's ass to the wall.  he waited, which means his lawyers have checked the validity of his claim and no doubt no exactly what the contract said and how they breached it.

All this Steam talk had me checking - I still have an HL2 and HL2 Episode 1 gift (unused). If anyone wants these, let me know. Also, how to you rank your wishlist - still can't find it?

drag and drop the game listing.  it is a bit funky so don't drag the part of the list which takes you to the game's store page or you will go to the page instead of re-ordering them.
6982  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: It's Thanksgiving Day, What Game Are You MOST Thankful for? GOTY Thread on: November 25, 2010, 04:48:17 PM
split between either RDR or ACB.  partly, it's due to the fact they both took an open world game (favorite genre by far) and made them fun and interesting outside of the quest markers. 

follow up goes to ME2.  i had a lot of fun with it but i feel it missed the mark by taking away a lot of the rpg experience which they should have kept from ME1.  instead of fixing the known issues, they dumped them out entirely.

i have the same problem.

6987  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: AC: Brotherhood - impressions and full review! on: November 25, 2010, 12:24:02 AM
oddly enough, the story progression also means you can do a ton of pick-pocketing and build up a healthy dose of cash long before the game starts tracking notoriety, just like in ac2.  once i found the reins had been lifted, i went out and tackled many of the towers and collectibles before the game introduced them.  it is odd to have that but it's much better than forcing you into a long sequence of story missions before opening up the sandbox. 

the assassination missions are fun but other than getting cash, i don't see the point yet.  same with the courtesan missions.  good for a change though.

Even if the chain hadn't rusted through, what good would the car have been even after a few months under water, much less a few years?

Well it's worth well over $100,000 now.

Really, for a bunch of rusted old metal?

6991  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Seattle, Nov. 22 Storm on: November 24, 2010, 04:59:57 AM
3 hours for me to get from seattle to my stop, less than 25 miles away.  we passed a semi that jacknifed and blocked the entire north bound freeway, plus the 15-odd cars that piled up behind him.  i had the distinct dis-pleasure at telling the 4 people who were waiting to go back north at the transit center that their bus was likely going to be delayed much longer due to that backup.  

at least i got home 30 minutes after that with no accidents encountered.  i also rode home with my lead who after the second hour said there was no way in hell she was coming in today that i didn't need to bother either.  

bus seats hurt after a while btw and standing up isn't much better either.  (i traded places half way through with someone who had been standing.  amazingly, only 4 of us did so, despite the obvious weariness of those standing.  

it sucked, but at least i wasn't stuck in traffic in my car.

thanks for that ceekay.  i haven't made up my mind which way to go with this yet.  i really wish i could find a decent stand alone that stood on its side.

I am a little bummed they didn't leave the old engine behind and that it's being described as a direc sequel.

yeah, that's the big problem with getting anything now that isn't already reduced.  the sale is coming and last year, it was huge.  anything you buy now may just go on a crazy sale then and you won't feel all great that you spent so much more on it.  i would check out the demo's, search out the freebies and get a good list of games which can be registered on steam.  imo, having the option to register a game i bought on d2d and use steam instead is a huge bonus and i have in fact forgotten i had bought a game because it wasn't in my steam catalog.

also, you can use it as a launcher for your non-steam games and clear up your start menu/desktop.
