Ozzie Mejia posted a new article, Weekend PC download deals: Steam looks to the future
Mass Effect 3: What DLC's do I need? I don't care for aesthetics, I just want the critical gameplay content without spending a fortune. ME2 was great and I didn't get any dlc for that.
That's the sad part about ME games, they constantly go on sale but not the case for their DLC.
This is because Bioware sells DLC content as in game microtransactions bought with Bioware bucks, which never go on sale.
Anyway, for ME3 From the Ashes complements the main story (pretty sure this is bundled with the ME3 special edition), I've heard great things about Omega and Citadel.
Yeah, I keep thinking that there will be a GOTY, or Complete edition with all the dlc so I don't need to pick and choose, but feel like I'm missing some part of the story, but it never comes. It's annoying.
I also don't care for necessarily getting the "Best" ending either. I didn't in ME2, I got close, but lost 2 members (the ones I didn't care for as much as Talia, Gareth, and Grunt, Scientist alien, and Miranda, to name a few that survived. The robot didn't, but I think I also missed part of his story, making me care less about his death?).
For ME 3 you'll want Leviathan and From the Ashes. Those are the only core ones. If you want something that's more about the characters, get Citadel as well.
SimCity studio closure sale on origin
Well, fuck me, I purchased Max Payne 3 and the key is for Rockstar's Social Club thing.
Make damn sure you take a good look at the DRM listed on your purchase page, people.
This is the correct listing http://www.amazon.com/Max-Payne-Online-Game-Code/dp/B008FPV88U
hmm same url, but one does list Steam as DRM, weird.
Has anyone run into problems with their keys? I'd have to download the whole game through Amazon to see if it works, because Steam is not activating the key Amazon provided.
Welp, got it sorted out, the key was busted or something, Amazon issued me a new one and all is fine and dandy.
Same thing happened to me LOL... I ordered the wrong PC version. Hopefully amazon will issue me a steam key!
Oh I may have to pick up Geometry wars 3 finally!
Awesomely hard/good game
Guild Wars 2 is $10 on their website http://buy.guildwars2.com/store/gw2/en_US/html/pbPage.buyguildwars2?_ga=1.30876735.1404632717.1422130943&cid=88:5::::Global:40
Again? I wonder how much Heart of Thorns will be selling for. I'm guessing $40-50, which is on par with Guild Wars 1 expansions I think.
Lol @ X-Rebirth sale, stealing is still stealing no matter how much money you charge for nothing.
