Alice O'Connor posted a new article, Weekend PC download deals: BioShock Infinite for $30.
The weekend is upon us; ready thyself. PC games going cheap digitally this weekend include BioShock Infinite for $30, Fallout: New Vegas Ultimate Edition for $4, the first two BioShock games for $5, Sleeping Dogs for $6, Aliens: Colonial Marines and its DLC for $8 (I know, but perhaps you're curious?), The Walking Dead and its DLC for $12, Anno 2070 Complete for $17.
Everyone should get Sleeping Dogs
I just got through the opening and got the bike, seems decent so far. Is the DLC worth it?
I'd say so. Nightmare at Northpoint was pretty neat because it felt like a horror movie of sorts. TheZodiac tournament was fairly fun and it was a tribute to movies like Enter the Dragon. As for Year of the Snake I felt it was the weakest of the DLC. but it was nice to see some continuation after the story.
I enjoyed Nightmare, got Zodiac and Year of the Snake during Summer Sale looking forward to it
I want it, but it doesn't seem to run too well on my system.
It's crazy how dated Quake 4 looks. I remember just 5 years ago it looked great, and my old computer ran it a tad slow. Now it looks plasticy.
I'm not sure that Quake 4 ever actually looked good. I don't remember it looking good at all. Doom 3 and Quake 4 had an awful lot of shit with no style or maybe just bad style, and Quake Wars too. Just really bad materials all over the place, with exceptions here and there. Rage was better and would have been exceptionally better if it didn't throw hideously low resolution textures all up in your face sometimes.
Quake 4 really suffered from the fact that the areas lit with bright baked ambient light maps looked terrible, the interiors looked pretty good along with Doom 3 though arguments could be made against the art style.
But yeah the big issue, like you said, was a material issue. I think Quake Wars was better than Quake4 with at least dealing with the textures under bright ambient light, but it still suffered.
Rage was significantly better at handling materials and cooked lighting, though as Carmack pointed out in the keynote, part of that was due to many manual hacks on the specific instance of the material for the lighting it was exposed to.
SPACE MARINE for $10 you xenolovers!
This game needs more love too. Too bad no sequel.
WADMAASI IS A CREDIT TO THE TEAM.
Thanks for these posts Alice! Still not $8 curious about ACM though. I know it's probably splitting hairs at this price range but $5 might do it.
A:CM can't be bad for 8 bucks right............right???
I said the same thing when I got it for $12. It's bad.
Is it funny bad? Or just terrible bad.
Mostly terrible. There's no fear element to it. These cardboard alien things just kind of lurch towards you like drunken mutant infants and you shoot guns that dont feel powerful at them.
I signed in for the first time just to give you props for posting that review link.
Awesome! Didn't realize They'd done one for A:CM!
I try to post this whenever the game gets mentioned.
Other thread says avoid at all costs. Even if it's cheap aren't there so many better games to play?
I guess it's a morbid curiosity... but ya... you're right lol.
let's just say the Zero-Puncuation review of it was very very gentle.
I always enjoy watching the part where the boss alien is content with killing only one marine.
Get the ROTT remake for only $7 more!
I did! :D
Great job! Now, I'm stuck at 91% completion with 2 secrets to be found on E1L1. If you find them all, lemme know. I find less than 50% on the first half, then the other to make it 91% during the 2nd so I think I might be missing something on the first half.
Here's me playing ~30 minutes on that level looking for them all. Some spoilers I suppose, but it's the first level of the game.
They said the same thing about aids.
I went on ahead and bought it for $8. Hell, you get the game and the season pass. Even if it does suck I'm quite sure I'll get $8 worth of laughs out of it if anything. No biggy to me. Thx for the post Alice!
How is Anno 2070? I tried the demo over a year ago, but my radeon 4850 just couldn't handle it, so I wasn't left with a great impression of it. Gameplay? It sounded like a simcity/rts style game when I first looked into it. Any thoughts?
It's pretty great!
Get it, it's amazing if you want a builder-type supply chain management game.
^^ not trolling
^^ might be trolling
^^ definitely trolling
Thanks for the recommendations. I'll have to give this game a second try and pick it up.
One question though, it's Ubisoft. How is the DRM situation?
When are those morons at SEGA going to let Company of Heroes 2 go on sale?
When Half Life 3 is officially announced.
