Re: Steam Autumn Sale - Grab Them While They're Hot
I took a gander and finally succumbed and bought Skyrim.  The Trine Collection was also nabbed and finally Chivalry: Medieval Warfare.  It'll be interesting trying that one out, being a Kunst Des Fetchens practitioner I'll probably be wicked overcritical and get pissed when I can't Zwerch and Krump like a boss.

Re: Steam Autumn Sale - Grab Them While They're Hot
It's a bad game designed by a bad person, don't buy it (or anything from Wardell's company)
Why is Brad Wardell a bad person?

Re: Steam Autumn Sale - Grab Them While They're Hot
I've finally made it a personal policy to not buy games whose prequels/originals I own but haven't played yet...it's just getting to be too much.  So no ME2 or DE:HR this time around.

 
Re: Steam Autumn Sale - Grab Them While They're Hot
DE: HR is actually very standalone and no prior knowledge of Deus Ex is required.

Indeed.  It's actually better to play them chronologically than in sequence of release.

Also, it's $5.  Get it.

Anyone who hasn't played Dragon Age: Origins has run out of excuses.  The entire Ultimate edition is in a flash sale for $9.

I was tempted, but considering the number of other games I have yet have not yet played/finished, I can't justify it.... so, waiting for a GOTY edition.

I can't speak for the expansion pack, but the core game is quite excellent (excluding multiplayer issues).

I'd say yes, but that's probably the naval combat system talking. (I'm still not reliable in land battles.)

Re: Steam Autumn Sale - Grab Them While They're Hot
Well, as long as my battles end up with either of lots of peasant riflemen chopped up by melee weapons or dead samurai shot to hell by lines of precisely-drilled elite riflemen (or Gatling gun batteries), I'll be happy.

I really loved that movie... And you just made me swallow my gum for whatever reason. :nervous:

On Dues Ex: I hear it's optimized pretty well?

 
Re: Steam Autumn Sale - Grab Them While They're Hot
Yep.  It also uses deferred rendering so Lower Hensha is simply gorgeous from all the neon and giant TV screens.

Those points aside, I have a backlog of like 60 games, and I barely have enough money to cover Christmas shopping, so no, I'm still skipping this one. :p

Re: Steam Autumn Sale - Grab Them While They're Hot
Anyway, I promised myself Human Revolution would be the last game I buy... at least until winter.

Damnit, the Witcher 2 just dropped $5. :blah:
