Has anyone seen Max Payne 3 or the latest Tomb Raider on sale? Or better yet, Half Life 3?
Is MP3 a Max Payne game or is it just a random shooter?
It's the 3rd in the series, came out in 2012. Story and plot based FPS. Great ratings and the first two were awesome, first one in 2001, second in 2003. It's like reading and playing a really good novel.
Which is my point. Is it a proper Max Payne game? Is it as apocalyptic as the first and as overly dramatic as the second? Is it noir at all? Because from what I've seen about MP3 it's nothing like that.
EDIT: And yes, the noir bit is important. A not noir Max Payne would be like putting a Humprhey Bogart character in Lethal Weapon or something.
Not looking for reviews, I'm looking for a deal. I could just buy the DVD on Amazon for $14.99
Ooohhhhh yeah wait I thought you said (it's hard to hear what people are writing obviously) something else and I thought you had played it. My apologies. Here the DVD version is €8 btw and there is a site that sells keys that seems legit where it's €6. Sweden only though.
Yes, I've played 1 and 2. Reviews on 3 are mixed, but I have not tried it and want to. I found the Steam triple pack for $13, may jump on that.
Picked up the bioshock infinite season pass for 10$ (both episodes of burial at sea) off along with stronghold complete pack. for 7.50$ haven't tried the burial at sea but the stronghold series is panning out, the second one is at least, found the villains voices far too annoying to continue the first lol.
They both go on sale frequently. Just wait for the next sale.
It takes very much after Max Payne 2 mechanics wise. Story wise, it really doesn't fit Max Payne at all I thought but I haven't played MP1 and MP2 in a long time so maybe I'm forgetting. If I'm remembering right, MP1&2 was about a cop with a vengeance. MP3 is more like a mercenary with not much purpose in life. In fact, the story was so underwhelming, I don't remember much about MP3 other than it was pretty freaking long for the genre it is (on-rails shooter).
Not really and no. It reminds me more of Kane & Lynch than MP1/2.
Checking... I bought it for $6.99 on Steam on 12/23/2013 and that included (all?) 11 DLCs. The download was like 30 GiB so...yeah.
Tomb Raider: 11/30/2013, Amazon, $9.99
Tomb Raider DLCs: 12/2/2013, Steam, $3.99
I know I've seen Tomb Raider by itself go for $7.49 during sales on Steam. In fact, I'm pretty sure I kicked myself for not waiting three days to buy it and save $2.50.
PM on possible MP3
Sweet. TPU never ceases to amaze.
Zombie Driver HD is on sale for $1.99 for today only. It's a fun game (I put 15 hours into it) and it just got a big (1 GiB) update.
Lichdom: Battlemage is finally out of beta and now on sale for $39.99. Game looks like an amazing Skyrim with just spells. I'm going to wait for some reviews to see how it is, I might pick it up on a sale
Pick it up on sale. It's immense fun for the first half hour, then you realise it's horribly horribly repetitive, and the crafting system leaves a lot to be desired in terms of tutorials. Don't pay full price, this is by no means AAA and certainly not long enough to fit the price tag.
Amazon End of Summer Sale
Of particular note: Command and Conquer The Ultimate Collection [ORIGIN] is $5, Battlefield 4 is $15, SimCity is $15.
Consortium: Master Edition is on sale for $10:
A very story driven game. Choices don't have a massive impact now but saves will carry into the sequel where they presumably will carry a lot of weight. The game kind of reminds me of Mass Effect where you spend a lot of time on the Citadel. Instead of being on a space station, you're in a large aircraft. The background story is very deep and if you care to delve into it, there's days worth of material to study. It isn't very long but I think I replayed it in excess of seven times.
Thief is $10 on Steam for the midweek madness.
Yep!! Picked up 2 copies!!
I want it...but I can't get it. I'll wait for Christmas sale I guess.
Don't worry, you're not missing much.
some days ago Grid Autosport was on sale, I ignored it.
Thsi morning I added Autosport to my wishlist and this evenign it was again on sale 50%.
Does Steam personalize its offers? Seams easy to do... profiles, likes, games played, wishlist...
No, Codemaster weekend sale. The sale a while back was just for GRID.
A bunch of great classics (Ground Control II, Empire Earth, Evil Genius) are on sale at GOG:
how much did you pay for it tho? i got it from retail at around 25$
they have to put it on sale because.... autosport isnt as great as they hyped it to be. F1 mechanics on normals cars are a no no if you play for fun. however for people like me who actually play for the love of driving.. its a great game.
that was also what I paid on steam sale (aprox). I like it a lot. I just want a fun driving experience, do not use the much blablablad cockpit, and use auto-gears. I am a diehard motorcyclist after all, haha.
