    Ah, It is a PAX weekend. And I missed out. :( I am working within blocks of the event, and I can't see. /me crys. Well, I see it has caused class in this thread, but that should be no surprise to anyone. I'm going to be out for the weekend, so my gaming will be on an android tablet. So no steam more sad panda. I have been loving Baldurs gate though.

    I have been trying to stay away from MMO's, but that being said I was looking at EQ Next. I might be interested, but it won't get your fix immediately.

    Last I looked it was like 50% off at Amazon.
    Worth every penny. I have well over 100 hours in it right now and have only just scratched the surface. It's easily my favorite MMO to date.
    How do you have that much time? I think I have gotten 5 hours in Baldurs gate in a week. I just don't have time anymore. :( But than, time with Fiance is fun. I do enjoy time at comic book shop as well though.

    I'll be honest here. You could do a lot worse with $5 than pick up Colonial Marines. I was expecting a war crime based on the terrible reviews. Granted, I'm only 2 hours in, and yeah the combat is repetitive, just point and shoot, and yeah it's not scary in the least, but it's not a bad looking game. I like the UI, the dialogue isn't terrible, and the atmosphere isn't bad either. Definitely evokes Aliens more than Alien fore sure. All the sounds are out of the movie and I'm mildly interested in seeing where the story goes.
    I have like $5 in non-survival spending this week, so I said fuck it and bought it.
    I was trying to find some youtube videos from people with specs similar to mine to see what sort of performance I would be seeing and holy shit Youtube is off its fucking rocker lately. Between constantly asking me if I'd like to use my real name and then bothering me for a reason when I say no and then telling me that they'll ask me again in the future to this cute bug that is happening where you can't skip ahead in a video at all (instead it just resets to the beginning) with videos just suddenly ending partway through... man, I hate to complain about something that is essentially free, but still, fuck man. You're one of the biggest tech companies in the world, get your shit together.
    Anyway, I hope it's good. If anyone else buys it the season pass is currently on sale for $6 on Amazon.
    Log out. Than it will stop bugging you. I rarely leave myself logged into gmail for this reason alone. They are pushing G+, groups thing and trying to beat facebook.

    Yeah, especially early access titles Anything. Every single oneThing, even the more well developed ones (which Prison Architect probably is) are better things are filled with bitching terrible and should never be gotten/used/looked at, Unless it is a meme.

    Keep in mind that it is still an alpha! As much as I love Introversion, I'd rather wait for the finished product. And I am more than willing to wait.

    I can definitely see the appeal of early access to a game, but that's just not for me anymore.

    And the argument from the prosecution (of your wallet):

    If you get the itch from watching footage of the game, the actual game even in this early state will hook you. Every single game for me is basically the same rush to the same rooms but I've still started over six or seven times to try something just a tad differently and I've pumped far more hours into the game than you'd think for an alpha. The fact that the game gets better all the time is really just cake on top of all the showerroom shankings.

    So much blood... must place more drains...

    So after reading your guys' comments about War of the Roses and looking up some videos on how to play, I played it some more and it has really grown on me. I also played it with a friend and that doubled the fun. Being able to protect each other from being executed and revive each other is a lot of fun. Dueling with each other is great fun too. And I love that you can create custom characters with different weapons & perks. So far I made a Braveheart character that uses a Scottish Longsword. I think that this series could grow even further if they added the amount of customization that you see in the Saints Row series.

    The lowest Conviction has ever been, apparently, is $6.24. And that was during a Winter sale. The game didn't see any discount during the Summer Sale, so you'll probably end up waiting until the Winter Sale.

    Also, Conviction on Steam is not able to be added to wishlists for some reason. Maybe it's because I have the vanilla version on my wishlist already, but I just deleted it off my wishlist to test it and I still can't add it to my wishlist. So keep that in mind if you use your wishlist to note games you might want in the future, as it's not a perfect system.

    edit: Also super weird? GMG has the old artwork for Splinter Cell Conviction on its store page. This was back when the game was going to be about stealth in crowds, chair throwing, and emo beards. They ended up folding the idea into Assassin's Creed, I think

    It was free as a preorder bonus for blacklist, so I'm surprised it hasn't seen a larger sale since blacklists release as a way to get more people into the series

    I haven't spent as much time as I'd like to with War of the Roses but what I have played is pretty much what I want out of that kind of game. I've never played Chivalry but it sounds like a faster, more arcadey experience that is set in not-really-medieval times. I'm sure that's a blast, but I enjoy the historical setting and what seems to be deeper system of combat.

    Also, Brian Blessed.

    A comparison I would make is that Chivalry is like Counter-Strike. Whereas War of the Roses is more like Battlefield.

    Specific differences:
    -Slower paced, but this is not so bad because parrying takes a lot more skill.
    -More team-based. Players are not usually instantly killed. They are usually put into a downed state. In that state, they can either be revived by a teammate, executed by an enemy, or suicide by begging for mercy. Reviving and Executing takes a few seconds to perform, where you are vulnerable to being attacked during the animation.
    -A lot more variety. You can create your own classes choosing different combinations of weapons, perks, etc. You can also customize the look of your character and emblem to an extent by choosing from different presets.
