    What I want is 2460 points from bioware but I doubt I will bring myself to buying it. That is Overloard, Shadowbroker, Leliana's Song and Witch Hunt.

    I was in the weird position of considering buying dragon age ultimate for $25 when it was on sale. It would have been cheaper than buying all the DLC individually.

    If I had more self control I would just wait a year till the GOTY editions come out for all the dlc in one bundle.

    can you like page me when this happens?

    There have been some clues as to which games are being discounted, for one day only, over the Christmas period. One of them pretty clearly points to ME2. Can't remember which day offhand.

    Are Darksiders or Operation Flashpoint worth getting?

    Darksiders is one of my favorite games of this last year. Its GoW and Zelda combined. The game is a lot of fun, the world was well developed and ends on one of the best moments in a game in a long time. Though really its a game that requires a gamepad and would do less on a keyboard and mouse in my opinion.

    24 actually, if you're buying it all at once

    I don't see why you're being so stingy about this. It's really, really good content and you're treating it like some kind of scam.

    I do not like this general direction in games. This is certainly not as bad as Horse Armor or Fable III's black dye pack, but it's an irritating trend that I choose not to support.

    I've been wondering about this for a bit: what's the difference between DLC like the extra missions in ME2 and the expansion packs of PC gaming?

    I mean, bundle them all together and you've got probably a full expansion pack worth of missions or at or a little under the same price you'd find expansion packs for if I remember right

    But god damn is he an awful president I'll you what.

    i've been really impressed with him. for as much as his political style is deningrated by liberals, he has had an incredible number of significant accomplishments in this term. if everything wasn't as good as liberals would have liked, it's worth remembering that about 75% of the population of this country was either in staunch opposition to anything happening or so cynical, removed and indifferent to government action that they couldn't even be bothered to vote in the first place.

    I don't really buy expansion packs unless they come bundled with the game, for similar reasons, or unless they can stand on their own, like with Dawn of War. I like to play through a game once, do everything that can be done with that game, and then move on.

    DLC may appeal to people who like to revisit games from time to time, but I almost never revisit things.

    As far as I'm concerned, at best DLC makes for several-month-long download times.

    Yeah but this girl is in a Facebook war with another girl over who got a better prize from a Neopets vending machine. Like they are breaking out 'cunt' and 'bitch' over this.

    I am sorta the same way. I play the shit out of a game and then leave it. But it's usually a year and a half+before all the DLC is out and goes on sale, so if i like the game it makes sense to play through it again. especially if there's an alignment system

    There was a subsentence right after that moniker. The vocal progressives shout down people like Will and myself, on this board even. You can't hardly mention Obama did well without someone crying he didn't do anything ignoring all the good work he's done.

    The line of thinking seems to be any failure is his alone and any succcess had nothing to do with him and thats fucking tiring.
