I played Bioshock a couple years ago now so any references more subtle than "Ayn Rand! Rapture! Objectivism!" will probably sail right past me.

I still have Bioshock 2 sitting on my desktop. havent played more than 30 min of it, if that. What's crazy is I loved Bioshock 1 and would say its easily a top 10 favorite, if not top 5.

Also Bioshock Infinite looks amazing....

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.


I ended up buying Ambitions/Late NIght/Supernatural Plus....

Since the last one was Sims 3 Plus Supernatural (same price as for just the Super upgrade itself)... I think I have a spare Sims 3 key (base game) if there is anyone out there that would like, first person to PM me gets the product key, hopefully it will work for you.

I got drunk and accidentally pre-ordered bioshock infinite on steam. And I bought a lot of total war games. Getting drunk and opening up steam can be expensive. I think I also bought some other thing that was on sale for 2 bucks... oh yeah deadlight.

On the bright side I've never played the original bioshock so... with that and Xcom it wasn't a bad deal. And the total war games were only 22 bucks total.

For the Japanese-savvy members of the board (or alternately, those who are good at blind guesswork) - you can apparently get a free copy of Lara Croft & The Guardian of Light from the website and quiz mentioned in this thread:

http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=529473

Haven't tried it myself, but it seems to have been confirmed. Note though: they seem to only be good for the JPN region PSN. I haven't done so myself, but I gather that it's a trivial matter to set a JPN region account up for oneself.

Ha! I've been in the same spot but with music. Woke up with a dozen new songs a few nights. Usually they were pretty good... sometimes you find out you downloaded an entire Vanessa Carlton album. Oops.

I've only ever drunk-downloaded games that I already wanted. I ordered some games years ago that were so bad I WISH I had been drunk when I chose to buy them (Pokemon Stadium... Harvest Moon 64 off eBay for $80...)

Steam has Hitman: Absolution for $10 this weekend. I enjoyed the game and think it's worth the ten bucks, easily.

GamersGate is having a Borderlands sale this weekend. 50-66% off the games and DLC, some exceptions, etc. I could get a 4-Pack of BL2 for about $11 each but I doubt there's four people reading this thread who don't have BL2 but want to buy BL2 for $11.

Edit: I own BL2 but I'd be willing to host a bundle if there were four interested parties who I knew from a hole in the ground. Given the size of the usual crowd here I doubt that's the case but thought I'd make the offer.

BL2 is on my list of games to buy, but far enough down my to-play list that there's no reason grabbing it until there's an amazing deal. I'll probably wait for a sale on a GOTY edition.

Except there's no GOTY edtion of BL2 yet (and probably won't be soon since they're still releasing DLC) so TirithRR wouldn't be interested. If someone is actually interested (not "I would be but I'm not"), let me know and if there's four of you I'll do it.

If not a GOTY edition, I imagine there'll be some sort of bundle or sale for the 'season pass,' since it only includes the first four DLC. I don't know how many more DLC they're planning, if it'll be enough to have a second pass or not.

No, I'm not interested in purchasing it atm. Finally finishing up Tales of Innocence (DS) and then going to hit up Tales of Symphonia Dawn of the New World (after refreshing myself on the GC game a bit).

I had a nice, unexpected, bonus at work so I splurged and picked up some console games I've been meaning to get around to, so I'll be focusing on those.

It's taking most of my will power to ignore Bioshock Infinite for now work on my console backlog instead. Makes it hard since I could probably finish it in 10-12 hours and most of my console backlog is RPG games which I know will take a relatively long time. But I know I could save myself 20-30 bucks if I just wait a bit and enjoy what I already have.

Yes. I never beat it completely, but I played quite a bit of it. I have tried most every DS game. Very near the end of Tales of Innocence right now. About 36 hours logged. Only a handful of entries in the "Summary" portion left, so I'm guessing I only have a handful of events to witness.

Out of all the DS games I've played, ToI seems to have the best story. And it's chocked full of voice acting. My favorite character being Hasta. And when we finally meet past-life Cerberus and he's a little three headed puppy that goes "WAN WAN". And is sad about losing his chew toy...

My 3DS is basically Heroes of Ruin when I'm bored, Chrono Trigger DS when in need of nostalgia, and a little bit of Etrian Odyssey thrown in now and again. I bought one of the cases for it with the extra battery pack, but it still didn't bulk the system up enough to not severely cramp my hands while using the shoulder buttons. :(

Plus there's no way to get rid of copies except to trade them or activate them (but you can't activate duplicates). So your inventory just fills with clutter like DOTA invites, Steam Beta invites, etc.

It's because it's gonna be F2P, therefor if you have a steam account, you "own" it, if you install it though, you can only watch match's.

The DotA2 link everyone has is a "viewer" only It lets you watch other peoples games, but not actually play. If you get a DotA 2 beta key it actually makes a different DotA 2 Beta on your list that's the actual game.

Stop it! You are forcing me to purchase games that I never had any interest in purchasing and that I may never play. You've neutered my ability to choose. I must buy them, simply because they are only $2.00 each!

McDonalds is doing the same thing - $1.00 for a cup of coffee no matter what size, so I have no choice but to buy the large size!

I'm sure Obama is behind this! He's turning this country into a welfare state! Nino is right! None of this is in the Constitution - when did it become unconstitutional to sell coffee for $1.00 . . . or video games for $2.00?? What am I talking about???




Apparently, exclamation points are on sale also . . .

They also have a bundle that's Bioshock 1, Bioshock 2, and Spec Ops: The Line for $10. Which you'd be stupid to buy, because you can get a Bioshock 1 and 2 bundle for $5, so buying it with the Spec Ops/Darkness bundle gets you an extra game for 1 dollar less...

And a Borderlands 2 / Xcom: Enemy Unknown bundle for $40.
