So a 13 years old game getting released on Steam, you better believe he'll be all over it

I'm not a huge fan but I do enjoy them. Although I'm not sure how I've been trying real hard to get into them lately?

I'm really enjoying Far Cry 3 so far. Really ****ing weird though that when you run it on Steam, it runs UPlay, then you can run the game, but when the game is running, it runs both UPlay (Shift + F2) and Steam (Shift + Tab) at the same time...

I really wish Dark Sun 1 & 2, as well as Al-Qadim would get released somewhere. Those are my favourite classics RPGs.

Hey Natey, Penny Arcade: The Precipice of Darkness 3 is sorta the style of game you're looking for.

PoD 1 and 2 were 3D and very clunky but PoD 3 is sprite based.

Since I'm watching the show Prison Breakright now, and saw this for sale: http://www.gamefly.com/Download-Pris...iracy/5005024/

I thought I'd have a look at the wiki article on the game since I never heard of it. Then I saw this nugget.

Here is an interesting bundle type promo I saw on Gamersgate.

EDIT: Deus Ex for 1.99.

If you have been living in a hole and haven't played it you should go do so now

So Dragon Age II is on sale for $12 on Origin. I'm playing DA:O right now and it's good. I've heard not so good things about DA2. Is it worth $12?

Yes, but it's been cheaper before. I'd wait and see if Green Man Gaming puts it on their Christmas Sale.

If you like DA:O, you probably won't like DA2. The games really aren't similar at all except in name. I loved DA:O but I still consider buying DA2 for $10 a waste of money. Consider that DA:O took something like 6 years to make, while DA2 took 1 and that's about all that needs to be said about their quality.

So I guess it's best to wait til it's like $5 or so?

Although with the time to make the games, let's not discount that BioWare was probably a much bigger company when they were making DA2 so it'd probably be quicker to make. That doesn't discount lazy developing (like caves that are exactly the same every time), but it could account for the speed of development. DA3 should be interesting.

They probably figure everyone who was going to buy it probably already has. I mean its been $2.50 pretty frequently.

Its a pretty decent game, but the lack of promotion for it was always the problem. Everyone who is going to get it already has.
