and they just put up the Kings Quest 7 & 8 bundle.  I'm hoping they run a special on them soon; 30 bucks for all 3 bundles seems kind of pricey.

better to do the telltale adventure bundle instead.  save $10 and get 4 whole other games with it.

Gary Oldman and Ed Harris are going to be doing voice work for this.

so gary will be doing the russian leader's voice then?  ed harris can voice the US leader.  not a bad matchup.

great cause but i am not nearly as interested in the other games as i would be if sam & max were included.  it's not likely to be at this point as they've sold 1200 and only have 3 more days to go. 

not a bad deal at all if you wanted to get puzzle agent though. 

whispered world looks pretty cool though.

SW:TFU Sith - $7.50
Disciples 3: Renaissance- $27.95

beware of these two though.  the pc port of TFU was considerably poorer than the console and D3:R is pretty bland according to the impressions here.

I had a lot of fun with it even though I never finished it, nor earned any achievements. A sequel could be even better with co-op. Hopefully, they can get some kind of insane Serious Sam player counts and have 8 or more against the mobs.

well, it looks like i was able to get a game in on time so this will be delivered some time next week, hopefully wednesday or thursday at the latest so i'll have impressions to offer up for the short time i have with it until a certain game hits next week.  i was able to get that game for less than full retail, so i don't have to worry about getting the spot open in my queue.

i only sent back mafia 2 on thursday, so i was a little surprised they mailed me saying hawx 2 was on the way yesterday.

1st game spoiler
Spoiler for Hiden:
i know The Riddler got arrested at the end of the first game,but then he should actually be THERE in Arkham City,right?

well, technically...
Spoiler for Hiden:
he was only arrested if you found out all of his clues.  he should be in there personally, but in one of the previews, his puzzles were mentioned as the basis for a new form of puzzle.  they won't be simple collectibles this time if i read it right.

They're having a 25X XP weekend. They don't mess around.

They realize that nobody is going to play multiplayer once Halo 3 comes out in 2ish weeks, so they're going out with a bang.

Halo 3?

from the link you posted here.

Just enter the coupon code “PAX” and get $5 off instantly for any purchase over $15!

oh well, i guess you could get a few of the deals and then use the code to save a few more.  not a bad deal i guess. 

and fwiw, i haven't even installed star wolves (the game i got for $2.50 in july) as it was a 4+ gb zip file that needs to be extracted and i haven't committed to spending the 2+ hours it estimates it would take to extract.  and 7zip is supposedly faster. 
7299  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Want to save 5 bucks at Direct2Drive? on: September 03, 2010, 01:30:19 AM
too bad they locked it to $15 minimum; I used the last $5 off to get a game for $2.50. Would have loved to get tropico 3 for a buck.

i wasn't able to get either of the games back to gamefly in time, so i will have to wait this one out.  by that time, halo reach will be out anyways, so i kind of doubt this game will get any love.

7305  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Valve has 3 big surprises in store for us in the next 12 months.... on: September 02, 2010, 05:25:48 PM
exactly.  what we'll probably get is a new l4d game/expansion, more news about portal 2 and probably something about tf2 in that telltale game.  i doubt we'll get anything ground breaking unless its for something a few years out.  the problem is, it's already been 6 years since hl2, which is as long as it took to get the second one out, even with the code steal and last month delay.  as it stands, we haven't been given any details in a few years about episode 3, let alone half life 3. 

i also attribute some of the indifference to announcements in general.  i'm tired of getting all excited for the potential only to be disappointed by the actual.  wake me when it's news, not hints of news.  this pre-announcement crap is getting old.
7306  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Valve has 3 big surprises in store for us in the next 12 months.... on: September 02, 2010, 12:52:51 AM

The problem with waiting is how bad N is about price drops on it's firs party stuff. They had twilight princess for full price for more than half of the time since release day. No sure how bad this is now as I haven't had a wii in over a year. ( I do wonder what I miss out on though)
7309  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: what games do you regret not finishing? on: September 01, 2010, 07:57:39 AM
okami is a good example for me.  i forget where i left off but knowing how the game was structured would make it almost impossible to know where to go if i loaded it up. 

ff12.  for the life of me, i couldn't get into it despite hearing all the good things about it.  biggest example from my pile of underplayed jrpg's.

i never finished sotc either, despite picking it back up again on the ps3 and getting to within the last 2 or 3 bosses.

Like that sale a few days ago with them for $30. $65 means no sale for now. My play & charge is ok for now. I do wish I could find some batteries by themselves though. Mine are getting a bit old.

From what I heard on CAG, you can stack up to three years on to the end of the current month. Not sure how reliable that is tbh, but the cards usually have a decent life span before they themselves expire, so you could have q few in reserve.

I did the speed achievement last night using the dragster you get in chapter 8 down the wide east-west bridge. Start on the east side and you should hit the speed by 3/4ths of the way across with enough time to stop.

You might be able to do it with the speedy car you get from a friend later on, but my attempts ended up in wrecks.

I only have the wanted posters to track down and I am all done.
7317  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Arcania: Gothic 4 on: August 31, 2010, 08:14:45 PM
Leaning towards two worlds 2 and risen 2 myself. The team behind arcania is the same who made gothic 3 forsaken lords? and that's generally considered the weakest of the series.

Every jrpg since ff7 in my collection as they mark the death of my interest in the genre.

I haven't finished any rpg's in a while except for the mass effect games and sacred 2 either so it's not just jrpgs.  
7320  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Mafia II on: August 31, 2010, 12:16:26 AM
Finished the game with a nice glitch.  I picked up a Thompson with a glitched ammo counter that started at 1000 in the clip. It never needed to be reloaded and didn't revert to normal when I did. It also stuck with me through chapter 14 and 15. Made the last battle a lot easier. I finished the game with several hundred rounds spent.

Yeah, that ending is a bit harsh, isn't it?  Not what i expected at all.

With that and some of the other moments in the game, it really left you feeling like an a-hole at the end, didn't it?  "Cleaning up after Joe", for instance.

About chapter 14
Spoiler for Hiden:
As for that car you start out with, I pegged it as soon as I saw it. It was a very odd feeling to know what was coming.
