    Welp, Darkness 2 and Crysis 2 are mine. Now, is Serious Sam 3 worth it at $12?

    Darn. I caved on Crysis 2 too early, I guess. But for those of you on the fence, it's still a tour-de-force shooter. Lots of cool encounters; a bit more linear than the first game, but still worth a play nonetheless.

    Go to GOG.com in the next 48 hours and you'll be able to pick up the original Fallout at the low, low price of free.

    Yes, Serious Sam 3 is worth it.

    Indiefort bundle hosted by Gamersgate is live: http://indiefort.gamersgate.com/indiefort-bundle-1?caff=3884871


    Kenshi (Alpha)
    Steel Storm Burning Retribution
    Wanderlust: Rebirth
    Cardinal Quest
    Devil Whiskey
    Black Market

    6 games for 6 bucks minimum, though you can pay more and the money goes straight to the devs (Gamersgate won't take a cut of it). They also have several tiered bonuses. The Cardinal Quest soundtrack is already unlocked, and there are like 5 more that could (some are based on units sold, and some are based on money made) including it looks like a couple of future games by the devs.

    That L.A. Noire is easily worth 499 of your pennies. It was a landmark game with a very compelling storyline. One should play that if they haven't already.
    I'd go for it in a heartbeat if the DLC after the fact didn't cost more than twice the price of the game. The complete version has already been on steam for 15 bucks in the past, so this isn't any better of a deal.

    LA Noire could have been good if that stupid grading system wasn't in it. To "solve a case properly" you have to do it in a very specific, linear manner. It honestly felt like I was playing a FMV Sega CD game most of the time. They missed a great opportunity to make the definitive cop game.

    Regardless of the price, don't waste your time on this "game". If you're any sort of completionist, you'll need to follow a guide or reload several times to solve a case "properly". I spent more time trying to figure out the right path than actually playing the game. Got old fast.

    I did a regular playthrough where I didn't worry much about grades. Much more fun that way. I started a 'completionist' one but never finished.

    Don't play it for perfect scores. It's a good game if you don't.

    If the grades or failing had any effect, the game might've been more engaging. As it is, you can be a total moron and bungle every case you encounter and you won't affect much of the story aside from maybe your boss yelling at you.

    You can "fail" cases, but the story still progresses. Personally, I loved LA Noire. Such a breath of fresh air amidst so many shooters.

    But I absolutely understand the people who hated it. It is absolutely not for everyone.

    Hmm, when I tried to get Saint's Row The Third from the sale, I got an error message and nothing is added to my account, but when I try to but it again amazon says I've already purchased it and would I like a duplicate copy? Has anyone had this happen with them before?

    LA Noire gets amusing (for awhile) when you start accusing everyone of lying every time. Clearly innocent people, children, old people, everyone. As was said, it doesn't matter, the game continues on anyway. I gave up on the game halfway through, but was determined to finish and discovered that. I would be wary of picking it up.

    I love LA Noire - I haven't totally finished it yet, because I switched consoles midway and had to rebuy it (and now I'll have to play through the first part again) but it's one of those rare games that feels like everything in it was made for my tastes exactly.

    Note: There is a pretty good chance this is a pricing error and that it'll be fixed by the time you read this:

    Gamersgate has the 1C complete pack for 20.00 USD, which is a rather insane deal even though 1c is kind of a iffy company. Notable franchises are King's Bounty, Men of War, and Space Rangers, with a few cult following types like Pathologic, and those games alone are probably worth the price. Only a few of these are Steamworks like the Men of War titles but thought it was worth sharing.

    http://www.gamersgate.com/DDB-1CBIGPACK/1c-complete-pack-bundle?caff=3884871


    If it is down, well, consider this a post for notification that GG has most of 1c's catalogue for like 70 percent off.

    Holy crap! I love Amazon... they grouped my separate orders together without me asking, and delivered them yesterday, a day earlier than estimated :D

    Syndicate is really badass. Its like an RPG-lite Deus Ex:HR except its not dreadfully boring.

    I didn't play the first one, but Infamous 2 is pretty awesome. It does a good job of making you feel like an asshole with superpowers. Or a Jesus with superpowers, I guess...

    I dunno, it was easier to do things like blow up refugee camps to get from point A to B instead of not blowing up the refugee camps and being careful. So, I wasn't exactly a "good guy"

    ...I'm having a hard time articulating it. I couldn't get into the characters all that much (why does Cole talk like a grizzly bear?), the plot didn't really hook me, I got a little tired fighting the same guys over and over and over, and flying and zapping around the city was fun but not really joyful. I mean, I liked the experience, but at no point did I go "holy crap this is awesome!" I dunno. Maybe I've been spoiled by the Batman games.

    Those are all core things about Infamous 1 and 2. So they didn't change. The characters and cutscenes and combat all improved, but it's still about tooling around a city as a possibly-evil/possibly-good electric super-guy and killing bad dudes.

    The major change that I liked was the attention to melee combat. A lot people wanted to use melee in 1, so they added a melee weapon and made it awesome for 2. It's not revolutionary, but it's satisfying and has some upgrades and such.

    They also added a bunch of variations on each power plus new powers, and made it easy to switch between them at any time.
