I've done really well at not buying any impulse games this year. GoG almost got me with Witcher2, but I stayed strong. How are you guys doing?

Well actually, I kind of want the Bethesda pack but I haven't picked it up yet... Kind of thinking of waiting, but on the other hand....

But yeah, so far so good :D

Borderlands 2, The Penny Arcade Trilogy, and Dungeon Defenders DLC. I couldn't stop myself.

I'm trying to be moderate. Some deals are just too good to miss, but I'm not buying stuff just because it's cheap. So far I only got Darksiders Franchise pack, Saints Row: The Third Season Pass and bought some heavily discounted games to give away on SteamGifts. Still hoping to get Natural Selection 2, Immortal Throne expansion pack for Titan Quest and the complete edition of Dungeons of Dredmor.

I'm kind of hoping more games are added to the bundle as I paid over the average :)

@jdodson and you got your wish. :) 3 more games added to the bundle.

I, too, have been trying to control myself, but the Humble Bundle came out and I can't resist any of those. Also, my current gaming rig is a little underpowered for most AAA titles, so that's helped, too.

However, I did re-purchase Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit for the PS3 since the optical drive died a while back.

@bean I totally did. And they added some really great games too.

Your PS3 disc drive doesnt work? Whoa. Thats a huge bummer. I guess we could still use Netflix with it, but not BluRay? Whoa.

beansmyname   Supporter wrote on 12/28/2012 at 10:17pm

S'ok. I only have two BluRays anyway and a lot of my more recent games have been digital downloads. I had been using GameFly for disc-based titles to play some of the games I hadn't played before, so now I get to save $20/month.

And I'm past the point of paying another $270 for a low-end PS3. Blasphemy, right? Take away my gamer card now.

jdodson   Admin wrote on 12/29/2012 at 06:33am

No. I think the PS3 is at the end of its life, so if BluRay isn't a big deal then I can see not replacing it. I really dig my PS3 a lot but the only game I still have to play on it I have not is Read Dead Redemption and thats because it didn't come with a PC port.

Still waiting for that. I'd pick it up. Is it the only one without a port?

jdodson   Admin wrote on 12/29/2012 at 04:36pm

Yeah, Rockstar said it would be released without a PC port. It made some sense to me at the time because console games way outsold PC. I wonder if they will break on that and port it?

Tungsten   Post Author wrote on 12/29/2012 at 08:07pm

Well, we have every GTA, all the Max Payne's, at least 2 of the midnight clubs, LA Noir, Bully.... no Table Tennis though (pretty good BTW). So ya, Table Tennis and Red Dead Redemption. Those are the two they did not port to PC.

Tungsten   Post Author wrote on 12/29/2012 at 10:02pm

... Gave in... Witcher2...Well, I liked the first one, let's see how this goes.

jdodson   Admin wrote on 12/29/2012 at 10:27pm

Awesome, interested to hear about how it goes. Seems like a cool game.

Tungsten   Post Author wrote on 12/31/2012 at 04:14pm

For a taste of what the game is like, watch the opening cinematic. It's... intense.

NSFW, well, unless you work at a morgue or something and people being killed in a horrific manner is just a normal part of your day.

jdodson   Admin wrote on 12/31/2012 at 08:31pm

Wow that is really intense. Putting that game on my list for sure now. Well, prob finish The Witcher first then move to the sequel. Nabbed the first Witcher at the time I was buying a ton of games at it was lost in the mix.

jdodson   Admin wrote on 12/31/2012 at 08:31pm

Did you play the original and if so how does this stack up?

Tungsten   Post Author wrote on 12/31/2012 at 09:42pm

The first one, if you can get through some awkward mechanics and a really creepy predatory relationship system, is pretty good.
The new one shares a couple problems with the original, but it has quite a bit of personality.

Beyond being a predator in a relationship, that sounds pretty good. Looking forward to checking it out.
