O.K., I need a straight answer here. How long is this charade going to continue? How long is everyone going to just keep posting and acting like Shadowstrike did not get a name change and drop the "d" in his name? Hm? How long?

Will he next be "Shaowstrike the Shay"?

Sorry, I have a 1000 and 2000 hardmodded.

FTL is interesting, seems to be worth the 2.49, and I ended up getting that Rochard game for 1 dollar on the humble weekly... cause it was only one dollar. If it turns out to be good I'll feel bad about being cheap.

GetLoadedGo Bethesda sale. Pick any two games for $15:

Dishonored
ES Oblivion: GOTY Deluxe
ES Morrowind GOTY
Doom 3: BFG
Fallout New Vegas: Ultimate Ed.
Fallout 3: GOTY
Hunted: The Demons Forge
Brink
Rage

No Skyrim, probably since they're releasing the Legendary edition and don't want to undercut their sales.

You should. I just finished it. 36 hours total but that's with 1 high chaos 1 low chaos run + the Knife of Dunwall DLC (Which was pretty good as well). Still even though it's fairly short replay was pretty high.

Holy F* the mafia 2 devs need a serious course in "How not to annoy your customers". It's kinda pretty and kinda atmospheric but good lord are the missions annoying so far. Hey Devs its F*ing 2013 let us save the game when we want.

Don't pay more than 10 bux for this PoS. Feels especially hard trying to push through it after Dishonored which I enjoyed.

I don't feel that strongly against it. Mainly that driving across town gets tedious and there isn't much to do outside of the missions besides heist cars for the junkyard guy and buy new suits.

The missions themselves I've felt were pretty balanced so far. I'd get flustered and certain that I'd fail but managed to beat them despite myself (gas stamps and trip to the doctor).

On the other hand, I only paid $8 for it a while back so so I got in under your $10 anyway Smiley: grin

I made almost 5 dollars while playing FFXIV, and you can too!

Winter ends?!?! Well that's good news at least. Smiley: lol

I think for me it's the arbitrary save system. On that first car robbery I screwed up and wrecked into a cop car. Then I had to do the entire thing again from the walk into bar, fight random dude outside. Shoot other 4 guys, pick car lock...

Same thing happened to me at the gas voucher place before I looked up how to disable the silly alarm. Also my car got freakin worked on the dash to the gas stations. No idea how much that will cost me because that's about where I quit last night.

Yeah, okay. I'll give you the save thing. It's annoying because it discourages taking chances or experimenting with stuff. I had stolen two nice cars, outfitted them at the mechanics and put them in my garage. Then I was messing around with something else, got into an accident and died. It reset me at the end of my last mission and my cars were gone, etc. So I wind up playing more conservatively than I'd like.

And, yeah, the first car theft was a pain. I found out through trial and error that you can walk around the building, go up some stairs, come in from the side balcony and approach the car that way, avoiding the fistfight. When the dudes came out, I just busted the window and jumped in the car and tore on out of there before the gang dudes could get in their cars and mount a decent chase. Still, that was like Attempt #5 after four times of fighting the one guy, shooting the others, stealing the car, getting shot at and chased, crashing, dying, restarting, rinse & repeat.

I think the story is good. Not captivating but well enough to keep me interested. The setting is well done. Voice acting and characters are good (aside from the one creepy looking prostitute). I don't have a complaint about the gun mechanics or fist fighting. I think I just keep wanting to treat it like an Saints Row style open sandbox and it's more of a narrative driven game with a few open elements. It discourages ramming down the street in a truck and going on a massive shooting spree but it's a game about some mafia guy, not an insane lunatic with a shotgun.

I'll do you the favor of saying not to invest too much time into your bankroll since you're going to lose it anyway. Cars in your garage and clothes in your closet remain yours.

For now. Later next year they'll probably have it set up like Xbox Live, where the higher your level the bigger discount you get on games.

Go to bed and the next chapter has me fleeing my pad in my underwear (no guns or cash). The street is STILL littered with .38s. So I scoop one up, gather all the ammo, kill a bad guy with a machine gun, grab that, steal a car, drive to a clothing shop and rob it stealing both cash and a suit and arrive at my next location fully dressed, armed and with $100 in my pocket rather than half-naked and helpless as intended. All because I got bored a half hour earlier.

I had 11k and they took it. Again.

Smiley: motz

I ended up punching one dude in the face getting his gun, shooting a couple more. Then cops showed up and they were fighting with the bad guys so I hopped some fences and stole my neighbors car. That was after several underwear deaths where I tried just running and only got to my pool or the bushes before splaying akimbo in inglorious death.

I also completely tricked out a car for a couple grand . Drove it to a mission, parked it outside, and it was gone after the cut scene. No longer in my garage either... I have come to accept the transience of anything I obtain in this game at this point.

$12.50 is 75% off the $49.99 base so that's as cheap as it'd get without a base price drop. No idea when that'll happen (I'm guessing not until after summer sale, or else a drop in MSRP and then a 50% discount).

Indie Royale "Spiral Groove" Bundle:

Sniper Elite V2 (Steam)
Gatling Gears (Steam)
Judge Dredd: Dredd vs Death (Steam)
Bloody Trapland (DRM Free, Desura)
Title To Be Announced

Currently $5.40 minimum. Really,it's worth it dollar-wise just for Sniper Elite V2 which continues to have a stubborn $50 base price and thus rarely goes below $12.50 or so (75% off) on sales.
