They scrapped the Mako for the future 2 games. And yes, that is almost universally the most-hated part of the games.

And the pace of combat ups in the latter two games. The first game is the most like classic turn-based systems, with a lot of skills and such. They drop the number of skills in the latter games, make them more unique, and the new engine makes it a lot more like a typical FPS.

For instance, they introduce thermal clips (essentially, ammo), instead of the heat mechanism.

Same for me, but it shouldn't be over. They haven't done the "Best Of" sale yet.

Plus it would make that ******* Natural Selection vote pointless.

SOSE: Rebellion is worth the $10, in my opinion. The Stardock bundle would be pretty awesome, if it drops in price a bit more. Galactic Civilizations II is like $6.79 right now as well, so I guess the bundle is really only worth looking into if Fallen Enchantress catches your eye.

I recommend any of the flash sale titles.

I voted AC3. I see Deus Ex on sale all the time, and I don't own AC3 yet. Granted, I almost certainly won't buy it.

Deus Ex is almost certainly going to win, anyway.

BUT DUES EXX IS 85%!!!1!!1! WHO WANTS STUPIT METRO??!!?!1?

I've never played any of the Assassin's Creed games, but the pack is $85 so I'll wait on it while I play some of these others. Still waiting to see if Civ 5 BNW goes on flash sale, if it already did and I missed it then maybe it will be back on the last day.

Metro looks kind of interesting, I picked up Kerbal Space Program last round, not much else out there that I'm looking at right now. Problem is, every time one of you mentions a game, I go take a look at it, and I start thinking, "oh that looks interesting."

I don't want to know how much I've spent on this sale so far.

EDIT: Also, one of the Flash Sales - "Organ Trail" - huh? I thought it was Oregon Trail but didn't recognize the artwork, then almost laughed that they made a dopey typo. But it's no typo.



Kind of like Shadowstrike did with his name.

I just watched that at the office, without sound but I don't think sound could have made it any funnier. When the first launch crashed all I could hear in my head was that line from the original Die Hard movie when the chopper crashed - "We're gonna need more FBI guys."

Can't wait to try this game out.

Kerbals is pretty freaking fun. Although it gets stale pretty quick. One of those games that is really fun in moderation.

It was 50% off on the first day of the sale, and will most likely drop again on the last day.

Might be again on the last day.

It's a cross between SimCity and a RTS. It's a bit difficult to get into, but a pretty good game.

My son has both the PC & PS3 version and prefers the PC version. Controls better and looks better; PS version looks all zoomed in like you're playing it at 600x400 or something.

It looked good which is why I dropped 25 buckaroos on the full edition with all DLC - but there is no tutorial at all. I mean usually I hate tutorials but there was nothing telling me what I was doing or what to click on or anything - just a single structure on a map.

And I was tired from trying to get uplay to work >.>

Will give it another go some day when I have time to play video games again. (Not tonight, I work from 8 am to 10 pm -.-)

Oh I like that game. I am also pretty sure I have it. Terrible I can't even remember (was playing it on facebook before)

*Checks*

Yeah I got it in one of those bundles I bought recently.

I am debating buying Reus... I won't have time to play it and I suspect that in a few months I'll be able to get it in a bundle for cheaper than 5 bucks.

Also considering getting Arma II to try DayZ even though I am sure I won't actually like it. I think I had better pass.

The missions are the tutorial. Each one will tell you what to build and where (to an extent) to teach you how the different buildings interact. The first mission where you have to drop off the supplies at the NPC ship can be a little confusing, but if you pay attention to the ship UI in the lower right corner, you'll figure it out.

Nice. I ordered my 760GTX the day before Newegg started a promotion for a free copy of the upcoming Splinter Cell game. I don't think I've ever played a Splinter Cell game, but I gave it a shot and emailed back and forth over a couple of days. They comped the cost and shipped me the coupon to redeem when it's released at no cost.
