    I use origin for my Mass effect, and only because I love mass effect so much. EA is moronic. They stole one of my games from my library and exanged it for another game I really didn't want. For no reason. Without telling me anything. And I had already downloaded it and they deleted it. Makes me really not have any compulsion to give them my money

    I was under the impression they were proprietary, but I don't know anything.

    Direct2Play Bioshock Infinite $34

    Activates on Steam.

    Region free but this is the company that sends you a text for your first purchase and sends you a picture of a key. I bought two games from them a year or so ago. Didn't have any problems, but I always throw that out there just in case some have never bought.

    Turns out you buy and download it through Origin and you activate the key using steam. :toast:

    Download through Origin and activate on Steam???? :confused:

    Can't you just plug the key in to Steam and download from there?

    Yeah, I bit the bullet and bought it on Origin because of the price. I guess what I was trying to say was yes, that was just the way I wound up doing it. Sorry if the other post was confusing.

    Not to me it isn't but...

    If I were you, I'd play AC, AC2, AC:Brotherhood, and AC:Revelations before considering AC3. I've played them all and AC3 still didn't make much sense to me.



    www.indieroyale.com has the Lunar Bundle available.

    I played the first and second one, didn't do brotherhood or revelations heard they were short for the money. I love the franchise though. They do build on each other sort of, the story of the templars unfolding over centuries. I should play the third one. Waiting for a good sale

    I have 40 hours into AC2, 43 hours into Brotherhood, and 48 hours into Revelations. All are 100% completions with little/no multiplayer.

    play the brotherhood and revelations, its part of the story and you will miss alot if you go straight to ac3, brother and rev are basically AC3 and 4, while AC3 is 5. lol, you get the point

    Very true. Revelations actually might be the most important in terms of plot. The end of Brotherhood is important too.

    Totally irrelevant; @FordGT90Concept, in your custom title space or whatever right above your av, I just saw that if you put zeroes where the exclamation marks are you get 90 in binary. Its also a palindrome. I'm so proud of myself lol

    www.indieroyale.com revealed the last three titles in the Lunar Bundle. Micron looks pretty fun albeit short.

    It was on sale for $25, then -20% off = $20. I posted late last night (early this morning), and the deal has since expired. Sorry...

    Many of the GMG deals last a day only...

    Fwiw, Steam now has Tomb Raider 50% off. So $25 for the cheap version until the 6th.

    Why Games With Female Protagonists Don’t Sell, and What It Says About The Industry
    http://www.themarysue.com/why-games...ont-sell-and-what-it-says-about-the-industry/

    Kind of interesting. Now I feel compelled to buy any female protagonist game. Reverse psychology?

    Also, Skyrim went on sale a month after it was released (11-11-11, on sale for xmas 50% off). So its not that unusual
