Hmm that seems like one hell of an offer for Tropico. I am strongly considering picking that up.

Origin's having a Mass Effect sale: 1 is $7, 2 is $10, 3 is $15, or you can nab the trilogy for $25. It looks like the pack includes all ME1 DLC, but not 2 & 3s. Crysis 3 is still 30% off, too.

I wonder if they're including the Cerberus Network in that deal for ME2. Would really suck if they weren't, since it would require an additional $10 to unlock the ability to use the DLC (and I'd definitely recommend Arrival and Lair of the Shadow Broker).

Still though, $25 for what I'd consider the best RPG series of the past several years is definitely not a bad deal.

Also, you can get ME3 for $10, but the $15 version comes with extra stuff. Including the $10 From Ashes DLC, which is decent enough, particularly if you're the type that gets interested in the lore of games.

I had heard it was a terrible PC port. Maybe someone who has actually played it on the PC can clarify.

Idk a quick Google search seems like the controls are mostly fine, cept the whole rooting you in place to aim, but that was a issue with the console version also. Amazon reviews were normal hit or miss, PC guys complaining about the rooting, to people not knowing the that minimum specs run any game like crap.

I have it it for PS3 already (PSN Plus RE5 Gold Free), and I'm still tempted to drop a few dollars on it just because M/K Controls would probably make the experience a bit better IMHO. But honestly GMG is a hassle for me thanks to my bank so I'll let it pass more then likely. Besides, I shouldnt be replaying older games I've already beat when I have such a huge backlog.

Also someone please take my Kungfu Strike Steam code, seriously.

GOG's having a promotion where you pick 5 games from a specific list and you get 80% off.

List seems decent. Legend of Grimrock, which I've been meaning to try, for $3. The first Witcher for $2. Alan Wake for $5. There's at least a diversity. Nothing amazing, but seems decent for the price.

If they're following the trend of the last few years, the next sale won't be until June/July with the Summer Sale.

Figured that out after a little trial and error. When I'm on my Steam PC I'll have to add it.

Someday Anno 2070 will get below $10 and I'll finally buy it.

And probably backlog it. But still.

Nope. It's pretty much just Steam, but limited to EA games. There are some limited social features, if you care, but that's about all. Cloud storage is available, and it's linked to the store. Most modern games will allow you to patch straight from the system, and it's fairly easy to access the DLC menu.

But overall, it's just a less impressive version of Steam.

I doesn't really bother me. A mild nuisance, segregating some of my favorite games away from the rest of my library, but overall it makes very little difference.

[EDIT]

Realized my listing was confusing. Cloud storage is available. The Origin platform includes a store feature.

Those two are not linked.

Nope its its separate loader, like Steam. To play the game you need to install and load Origin then install and play the game from within Origin. Like how Steam works. If its an Origin game it doesnt use Steam.

Edit:Digg beat me to it.

Speaking of the deals: Amazon has Cars, Jets, DirtBikes Pack(Ridge Racer Unbounded, Ace Combat: Assault Horizon, MUD - FIM Motorcross World Championship) for 14.99 all Steam activated. Or each game is separately 8.99-9.99)


Ridge Racer IIRC got decent reviews, as did Ace Combat, The Dirt Bike game I've never heard of.

Be warned, Assault Horizon turned Ace Combat into CoD. Don't support it if you want the series to return to the previous game style, the ones where the majority of air combat isn't based on an on-rail gimmick.

Don't think anyone pointed this out: the entire Assassin's Creed lineup is on sale via Steam right now, but the deal ends in an hour and a half.

AC3- $25 (50%)
ACR $10 (66%)
ACB $5 (75%)
AC2 $5 (75%)
AC $5 (75%)

Sale on DLC too.

Franchise Pack $65 (35%), which includes all of the above, plus DLC for ACR but is NOT A DEAL unless you miss the sale on the piecemeal items, because it actually costs more right now. But it's up for 25 more hours.

It's good? Because I was seriously debating it. I like the idea of a large-scale RTS game... I tend to fail horribly at them because I want to build up the biggest base I can, with all the upgrades, when the best strategies have specific build orders and priorities to counter your enemy...
