I could do witha huge discount on vanilla Skyrim. Not paying more than $10 though. I really want to mod it, but I already previously got the platinum trophy on the PS3 version (after taking months off while they patched that ******* mess of a game). I have plenty of other games to play though so my willpower is strong on that one.

Hopefully Dragonborn is a nice low price (it's the last one I need), if not I have now found a crack-like addiction with Terraria, I even bought it for my neighbor so we could play in one world (or farm multiple other worlds).


Oh yeah, Terraria is grade A Crackalin. That game had me big time last year. :) Was almost fever like.

I've never played Minecraft but my understanding is that Terraria (which I have played) is more RPG-ish and less "build anything" in style. There's a lot of different monster types and weapons with particular stats, spells, etc. There's boss monsters and some sort of weapon/armor/enemy progression and you'll increase your base health and mana during the game. There's no real NPC interaction; you go to the nurse and select to get healed, not hold a conversation.

You can build lots of neat looking stuff, both explicitly in game (furniture, decorations, etc) and by using architecture. But you don't see things like Minecraft's working Pong machine or calculator. And, of course, it's all 2D.

You shouldn't feel bad. Anything in DS can destroy you. You need to learn their fighting patterns and adjust accordingly. This will generally take the form of you banging your head against them until you finally realize what you're doing wrong.

That will probably be wise in the long run. Also moving, dodging, blocking, etc. The actual combat options in DS are relatively simple, but you need to learn how to use them properly.

I hope you don't mean the skeletons in the graveyard. If you do then you might want to consider going somewhere else first. they're not really meant to be tackled at the begining (although any route is possible at any level).

As a rule in the begining you should go up, not down.

Reading a post about beginner's tips might not be a bad idea. Dark Souls is a sufficiently difficult game that, even if you were someone who is opposed to using guides and things in general, it really deserves leniency. There's a lot here that you'll never discover without help. Honestly, in my opinion, they designed the game with the idea that people were going to be actively sharing information (beyond the scope of the in-game messages).

So now that I've played XCOM, I feel comfortable saying I really want them to make a fantasy game with similar systems.

Or for SE to make a FFT game to challenge it.

I'll be happy with either.

Very GTAish game without the carjacking/gun play if I remember correctly, had the 360 version at release. Fun but if I remember right I never finished it.

FFVII is a flash sale for 33% off. I bought it earlier from GMG for 30% off.

I voted for Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale. I think I'll buy it if it wins.

You should play the demo if you haven't already. I enjoyed it, and for can see grabbing it for 4 dollars if they vote for it.

I'm still hoping Legend of Grimrock goes back on sale before the end of the whole thing. Maybe during a super flash sale at the end...

Didn't notice it had one, I'll do that.

Grimrock was another one I was watching for - grabbed it earlier in this sale. With how often repeats are coming up, I'd be surprised if it wasn't an option.

I'm really hoping Jade Empire will go on sale, but I've more or less given up.

Quite right.

Current sales are Terraria, Sleeping Dogs, Dark Souls, and Max Payne 3. FTL won the community vote. All are 75% off.

They'll have one more group of daily deals today; then when the store updates tomorrow it will be the "Best Of", which will end at Tuesday's store update.

Edit: Correction, since the postcard behind the main one is now randomized with each page refresh today may be the "Best Of" sale.

I didn't notice that, but sure enough, Bioshock Infinite was there when I first checked. Reus, then Skyrim.

So tomorrow morning may be the last flash deal before the end of the sale. Otherwise I got to remember to look up my Steam password and bring it with me to work and double check things before the end of the day...

Check the sale again in about an hour. I've noticed that it takes awhile for Dragonborn to drop from 30% to 50%. It might be the same with regular Skyrim since it's also at 30% off.

Maybe this isn't the right place to ask this, but I did a cursory look around for the old Skyrim thread and didn't find it (operative word: cursory).

I bought the Skyrim DLC. In fact, I screwed the pooch and bought the Legendary Edition while I already owned the basic Skyrim. O.K., I got over it. But now I cannot find anything to indicate any of the DLC is available.

Steam says "it should be there" and my library does show it if I right click on Skyrim and then on DLC, like they suggested. But there is no DLC tab when I right click on Skyrim on my desktop and then click on Properties, which they also suggested. Also, there is no indication of any DLC when I launch the game, when I load an old character, when I look at the map, or when I start a new character.

Any ideas on what I'm missing here? Do I need to have a character of a certain level (as opposed to four at level 30)?

If you can help, thanks. If you can't, well thanks anyway.

Well, with limited experience with any of them, the first thing I can think of is to check if there's any clay around you in the world. Like near the stream/river outside Whiterun.

If it's there, that means that Hearthfire, at least, is installed.

Dragonborn stuff apparently starts by getting randomly attacked by cultists when the city environments load, so going in/out of a building a few times might give you a clue.

And Dawnguard, you get randomly attacked by Master Vampires, Thralls, and **** Hounds.

I think if you use BOSS or Nexus Mod Manager you will probably see the Dawnguard/Hearthfire/Dragonborn ESM files as well.

Bethesda game launchers normally have a "Load Data File" option that lets you load or unload the DLC from the game. You should check there as well.
