They should "accidentally" put Skyrim on sale for $4.99 for five minutes and then "fix" the decimal to $49.99.

And then drink delicious rage tears.

Orcs Must Die! is supposed to be pretty good, sort of a third-person tower defense where you assist the towers. I bought it but haven't had the chance to play it yet. It doesn't have windowed mode, if that's a deal-breaker for anyone.

My father keeps asking me about it. Duke Nukem was like the 1st and only PC game he played a liked.

It's not that it's that bad, it's that it's just not very good. After years and years of waiting, I don't think anything would have been able to live up to the hype, but the game that eventually got made was only average. Because of that it's gotten a worse reputation than it deserves. I'm not saying that it's great game, it's not. But it's also not nearly as bad as some people make it out to be.

I recommend him not playing the new Duke then. The only thing that really is the same from the past is the general type of enemies you have to kill, his one liners, and boobies. The game has a overall sense that the developing team was a group of chimps trying to create a game any half decent development studio could **** out in a year.

This sums it up nicely. Oh and NSFW and all that.


Edit: Somehow forgot to put boobies in there. Must have been distracted by some boobies somewhere in my thought process.

I've heard some pretty good things about Limbo, but always that fifteen dollars was a bit on the high side. I don't know when I'll get around to playing it, but for $2.50 I see no reason not to get it.

I've already grabbed the GTA complete pack, Rainbow Six Vegas 2, Portal 2, and TDU2, which doesn't seem to work all that well. I think I'm going to grab the Splinter Cell series, as well as The Witcher 2.

Picked up Limbo, enjoyed it. Plays a lot like Braid if you picked that up from one of the humble bundles. Steam puts me at 3hours after I finished the game, but I have not earned many of the achievements, so it could probably turn into a 5 hour game if I aim for most of those.

$25 for Fable III? That's pathetic.

$5 for Dead Space 2 is a good deal.

Skyrim failure.

Fable 3 was really average. It was kind of fun but pretty cheesy in a Disney movie kind of way. I still played it twice when I picked up from the summer sale but that was during a slow spot in new RPG releases compared to the holiday glut.

I bet they can't get M$ to lower the price more becuase they still hope to sell it over the holidays. I saw a commercial on TV about getting two free games with an Xbox and one of the games they showed in the commercial was fable 3.

Finally started playing Dead Island, it's pretty much Borderlands with more meleeing than guns. The zombies are numerous and belligerent as they should be, and the enemy AI is pretty decent, can't say the same for the NPC AI. I had a NPC I was escorting stop to let me kill the approaching horde, then run right into the Molotov firewall I had put down to keep any extras from joining in.

The weapons are well balanced, and the repair/mod system works well with the game. I managed to find one of the developer's hidden mods which gives you a BioShock/inFamous style electrocute-shockwave attack. It's good for knocking over large mobs of zombies to give you time to get away, but at the cost of all your stamina (which is needed for fighting and running).

Other than that it's a good deal for $20 and lower, so you should definitely get it the next time it's on sale.
