Almost certain BD's been cheaper elsewhere before. Like sub-$5. I've heard multiple people say it was a good game, almost a sleeper hit though so if you're interested there's a good chance it'll feel worth it even at its current price tag.

Might as well; I have ME3 on Origin and ME1-2 on Steam. Never had any issues with either platform. Keep in mind you'll still need to buy most, if not all, of the DLC (ME3: The Extended Ending is free, and From Ashes may be included... though it wasn't for mine. Cerberus Network gave 4 pieces of DLC for free for ME2... and I've still never bought any DLC for ME1).

Edit: All told, I've clocked over 400 hours between all three games. 146 on ME1, 206 on ME2... and only 85 on ME3 Smiley: lol

ME3 is Origin exclusive, I believe. EA and Steam's rules for DLC distribution don't play well together.

Well the Trilogy on Gameflys Is all Origin. I can deal with it I guess. I mean I realized I alreayd have a ton of other installers, holding out against one because of w/e reason is just stopping me from playing, what I can assume, from everyone's opinions, is supposed to be a great game series.

I mean I was looking through and I have Steam Desura Uplay Smite/Tribes installer, Raptr, Gface(?). Maybe one day in the future someone will code a program like Raptr/Xfire that unifies all the installers with their own store pages on different tabs or something, but populates all your Games Libraries into one list. The only reason I use Raptr, isnt because of the Unified games tracking(sort of, PSN,XBLA achieves = experience in games, unlike Steam/PC games being tracked by time/achieves) thats a nice bonus. I originally grabbed it for IM unification/Ingame overlay of IM's so I don't miss messages.

Games with separate installers are games I end up not playing as much. I hate having a cluttered desktop. When I open my Steam (or Origin) library, I see my game options. Definitely prefer it.

Yeah this was one of my arguments against Origin, I hate having my library separated, Steam and Desura likened to Mainstream or Indie. Desura is mainly indie games, low budget, bundle stuff, mostly. Steam on the opposite hand handles more of the larger Mainstream games. So the issues of them being separate never bothered me so much. Uplay while being separate launcher, has the nifty Achievement points can buy in game stuff thing, which steam doesnt support (atm), but they are still working with Steam, putting in a 'lite' version of there installer (From what I can tell).

My main issue was EA and there we have to have our own and cant share mentality, and that it just separated my games library. If you want any new EA game you're forced into their system.

Like I said the person who can make an Installer that populates and gets all your steam games, origin games, etc and puts it all into one program will be a rich man.

ATM there are 3 avenues, installing everything, putting all the Desktop links in one folder on the desktop like years passed (I cant be the only one to do this back in Windows 95/98), be like Joph with a spreadsheet of all his games, or just deal with tons of programs to launch said games.

Gamefly Today

KoA: Reckoning(Origin) - 7.49
Farcry 3 - 34.99
Xcom:EU - 14.99
Torchlight II - 6.79
The Cave - 7.49 (This is Free for PS Plus members starting this week.)
Sleeping Dogs - 9.99

I missed the ME Trilogy yesterday because I saw it had been 17.99 on Amazon a month ago.
Ill probably install Origin though because of the Origin sale for C&C Ultimate, I have the First Decade already but Missing the last few games.

I may wait to see if Amazon price matches ME3 Origin sale (They have a ton of physical console/digital games on sale like 50% off on Origin) and pick it up for PS3 with the Buy 2 get one free @ Target, since they have Lollipop Chainsaw for 19.99, and another game I was looking at.

Amazon doesn't match publisher sales so they wouldn't match a ME sale on Origin, Far Cry 3 on Ubisoft, etc.

That XCOM: EU price is as low as I've seen it thus far. Of course, it'll probably only go lower. That's easily the best price I've seen for Torchlight II. Last best price I saw it at was $7.49 each if you bought into a 4-pack.

XCOM: EU has been unlocked as a Bioshock Infinite Pre-Order reward, so if you plan to get both it may be a better deal. Or you can wait to see if someone that already has the game will gift the extra.

Oooh, are the Sims 3 expansions a good deal at that price? I'm missing almost all of of them (I only own World Adventures). I want to get either late night, ambitions, or supernatural expacs, but I'm still unsure.

Yeah I would like them all, my main issue is with The Exchange, I'm constantly finding little neat household items I want (Like the hookahs), but then I download them and my game expansions are not compatible. It would be really nice if they actually listed what expansions you needed.

Hence why I havent bought any yet. But I might...

I haven't annoyed anyone in a while by talking about good deals I've snagged.

-- Bought Bioshock: Infinite bundle from GamersGate including Bioshock: Infinite, XCOM: EU, Bioshock and SpecOps for 36,805 blue coins (using 20% comp discount from Bethesda fiasco). Get back 15,792 blue coins as part of promotion. Total spent: 21,103 Blue Coins ($21.10). Actual cost to me is $16.88 since I got the BC's during the short window you could use the comp discount for them.

-- Already own $24 copy of B:I from buying the AMD card. Sell extra Bioshock:Infinite code for $22

-- Now own free XCOM: EU (and extra copies of Bioshock & SpecOps... yay?) and made $5 cash on top of it

Yeah. I haven't sold it yet since the key hasn't been released yet (although I know several people who are interested so it should take no effort) but I'm mainly just covering costs. No reason why someone else shouldn't get a nice deal on the game on top of me getting a nice deal.

I'll probably wind up giving away SpecOps. I'd say I'm going to give away Bioshock (1) except I don't think there's a man, woman beast or child left who doesn't already own it Smiley: laugh

It's a good game and well worth the play through. I won't pretend the story revolutionized my life or anything but the setting and experience are interesting enough to make it worth it.

I never played Bioshock II which I understand had a less enthusiastic response.

So thought a completely un-expected turn of events I have a few Steam keys that overlap. Bioshock and Xcom:EU. Bioshock is yours for free if you want it, The Xcom I would like to see if I can get a trade or like 10 dollars for. Any takers?

Edit: Nvm found a buyer

Yeah I actually enjoyed it. The sense of familiarity hurts things a bit, and the "collect & protect the little sister" thing gets repetitive, but when the plot gets moving it's actually quite solid.

Minerva's Den is also decent, though I think it wears the traditional Bioshock plot structure a little thin.
