I loved the movie but just assumed the game would be utter crap.  Glad it didn't turn out that way.  I'll wait until it goes on sale and pick it up.

Thanks for the mini review.

Anyone know if the expansion was released in the US?  I saw an article that said it was released on Steam in November, but I could not find it on Steam.

I thought Sacred 2 was a great game and I'd like the play the expansion.  Any thoughts?

Anyone have any deals on pre-ordering Mass Effect 2?

I know there were many options for pre-ordering Dragon Age and they all came with various DLC.  Please post any deals and DLC options for Mass Effect 2 here.
85  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Dragon Age is looking good! on: December 23, 2009, 10:23:32 PM
Inferno is great.  I use Blizzard the same way too.  I've been rolling with two casters (Wynne and Morrigan) with my main (Warrior) and Leliana.  With the dual wield and some nice daggers Leliana does some major damage.  She can take a bit of damage too but I generally try to keep all the mobs aggroed on me. 

My standard practice is to nuke (a fireball from each caster) as soon as the screen pauses from a new encounter.  After that, we'll clean up what is left over.

I just noticed they currently have Torchlight for $9.95 right now.

Torchlight for $10 is a steal!

wow, the dwarf section is huge.  41 hours in and the end is nowhere in sight, but the more I think of my next playthrough the more I think it'll be some time down the road instead of restarting again right away,  don't get me wrong, this is my GOTY and I love it but I think spending another (probably) 70-80+ hours on it again right away  may make it feel like a chore.

Yea, that dwarf area goes on forever.  For party conversations, you can't beat Oghren. 

I'm in the dwarf section now and it is huge!

By the way, did anyone notice they added more DLC today?  Return to odsgar?

I thought the first Mass Effect was outstanding (Xbox only, I did not play it on the PC).

Looking forward to playing the sequel.

I fired up the game tonight and got notified of some new DLC, a weapon called The Edge that downloaded for free.  looking around it's only available to anyone who registered before November 30th.  here are the stats, I imagine it's a weak item for those who have been playing awhile but it's nice for me since I've only apparently been playing for 20 hours.

It's actually the best dual wield dagger in the game.  I used it from the moment I got it, until I won the game, 24 levels later.

All of the mods apply to both hands; so the critical and damage mod will increase the main hand weapon ability an amazing amount.  For example, that +5 damage applies to both wielded weapons, so it raises your overall damage output an insane amount.

It's kind of ridiculous that such an overpowered item is available from the start of the game.

Yes, that dagger rocks especially after the patch.  Dual wielding that with the sword made from the meteor (with three rune slots) and my guy kicks major ass!

I dropped Sten from my party almost immediately because he couldn't hold up in a fight.  Did much better with Dog in my party until I was able to grab Shale. 

This!

Sten gets his ass kicked in every fight.  Dude gets beat like a rented mule every time.
91  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Half Life 2: What was your favorite part so far? on: November 29, 2009, 01:51:45 AM
I agree about the highway part, it was great.  I also liked the giant bridge that you had to traverse.

The entire HL2 + episodes 1 and 2 were awesome!

I'm hoping there is an episode 3 or HL 3 but it doesn't sound like it at this point...

I wonder what time Impulse will release the game.

found an answer on their forums:

Quote
Download will be available around 10 AM Pacific tomorrow (Nov 3rd).  This time and date is set by EA.

DLC codes will go out around the same time.  You should receive an email with them.  There will also be a pop-up in Impulse when you first run the game that will list them.

Silly question, but if I leave my computer on with Impulse running, will it automatically download it while I'm at work or do I manually have to start it?

Question regarding Steam:  Can I load steam on my laptop and install Torchlight there as well or will I have to buy a separate copy for my laptop?

Just wondered how Steam handles these things...

Once you login you can download to that computer, so you can use it multiple places.  You just have to be logged in with the purchasing account to play.  Saved games are stored locally, iirc, so it's not like battle.net with characters saved online.

Thank you.  I installed steam on my laptop and it downloaded and installed just fine.  Perfect for gaming a lunch!

Played a couple of hours last night.  I'll echo what everyone else is saying: great game that is very well done.  If you liked the Diablo type games, pick this game up for sure.
99  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Torchlight, a follow-up to Fate and Mythos on: October 28, 2009, 04:24:01 AM
Played it just for a few minutes and completed the very first quest. 

Nice game and definitely a steal for $18!  This should definitely hold me over until Dragon Age hits.

I'm stuck at work - can't wait to get home and start downloading.  It sounds great!

Just so I can set my expectations, how long did it take to download?

It wasn't too bad - about 20 min to download and install.

(yes, I know I am answering my own question...)

I fired it up last night.  Started the first Metroid (Metroid 1?)  Made it through the first section (space station).  The controls took a little to get used to, but I'm enjoying it so far.

103  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Dragon Age: Where to buy? on: October 26, 2009, 02:58:39 AM
Thanks for the coupon.  I'm ordering the CE version on Impluse.

I picked this game up for myself on the TRU B2G1 sale last week.  Haven't had a chance to fire it up yet, but I think I'll start tonight  nod
105  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: World of Goo 'Pay what you want' sale on: October 16, 2009, 11:00:28 PM
I saw this at Target last night for $3.74 and picked it up on a whim thinking it's got to be worth at least that.  I put it in the pile of games to play eventually when I got home.

I just saw this thread and now I'm going to install it!
106  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Dragon Age: Where to buy? on: October 16, 2009, 06:22:14 PM
Looking forward to getting this game on release day and these devs typically don't disappoint.

Hoping the hype machine hasn't caused my expectations to be out of line with reality...

I had a good experience at TRU with the B2G1 for my recent Wii purchase.  I was able to stock up on controllers as well as getting some games for the kids (which I am saving for Christmas).  Both my local TRUs had plenty of stock of everything I needed.  The staff at both TRUs have been very helpful.

I used to get all my 360 games at Best Buy (or used on this forum) but as previous posters mentioned, Best Buy is a pain in the ass!

109  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PC/XBox Gamer Needs Some Wii Advice Please on: October 05, 2009, 04:08:37 AM
Cool.  I appreciate the great recommendations.

I managed to pick up Boom Blox and My Sims on clearance at the Target secret shelf.  Also, I see TRU is having a sale next week.

I'm going to get Wii Fit and EA Active for the Wife as well.

I'm intrigued by the backward compatibility.  I've seen what I think are gamecube controllers even at Target.  These would be wired, correct?

I thought the two dark forces (and expansion) games had excellent level design and lots of fun.  Too bad the graphics would be dated or I'd give them another run.
