I purchased and installed Frontlines, but it refuses to work in Windows 7.  I tried XP compatible mode, still no love.

OK, my prediction for next week: the big reduction (like what they did with Riddick this week) will be The Witcher for 5 bucks.  just call it a gut feeling.  if I'm wrong you can feel free to send hate e-mail to Chaz.

edit to add:  I'm also leaning towards both Titan Quests and Puzzle Quest being on sale too.

if you go to 'all games' then sort by price ascending you'll see the new stuff listed.  I'm going to grab Storm of Zehir.

OK, I'm kinda baffled by some of their choices for RPG/MMO week.  GTA?  Assassins Creed?  surely they had some better actual RPG choices to pick from, those games belonged in action week.

Agreed GTA nor AC are RPG's.

I might bite on NWN2 and the expansion.  I have a smokin' new PC that can run it, I skipped it the first time around.

That list brings up a couple questions:

1.  Is Storm of Zehir stand-alone?
2.  Is Drakensang worth $5?
3.  In what possible world are GTA and Assassin's Creed considered RPG's?

Not only has the game been removed from the sale, it doesn't appear that they're selling it at all anymore.  Even the "gold" edition is missing.

Glad I picked it up last night.  Hopefully I won't run into any activation code wierdness when I attempt to install it.

Well fuck.  That pisses me off a bit.  Of course, NWN2 is still advertised in the trailer for the anniversary sale on their front page.  I'm hoping it's some kind of site glitch and the game goes back up soon.

I got worried for a second because I bought NWN2 off them when it was released, but checking my account shows the game still downloadable for me so if you did manage to buy it it should be listed under there for download.  that also rules out my thought that maybe they were having issues with the version they have so they pulled it since I can download it.

They probably didn't mean to put the original on sale, or maybe didn't consider the response to selling it.

If you grab Riddick and don't use their download thing, make sure that you use Winzip to unpack it.  The Windows unzipper can't deal with some of the large files in that download, and the install won't work.

Riddick didn't download as a zip file, the downloader set up a directory and downloaded the files unarchived.

But you can download it without using their downloader, and then it comes down as a single zip file.  Which is probably why they tell you to use their downloader, but I've always thought that you shouldn't believe everything you read.  biggrin

Other than being of the same genre, they are not very alike. NWN is more like a simplified Baldurs Gate (fewer party members to manage) although not as good.

Ok just remember that I also said "...although not as good." smile Don't expect BG3 here! I hope you like it. I never finished NWN2 (I got very far and just ran out of steam), but I did enjoy the main campaign a lot until I quit it. It's definitely better than NWN1.
