Last few days to sign up for GamePump. Another random game a month service, this one promises to include "classic" games that are brand new to PC. Subscription is $5/mo or $20 for a year and the first game is heavily rumored to be a port of the Wii's LIT.
Humble Bundle has Assassin's Creed Bundle live now. 3 Tiers:
Pay $1 or more for:Assassin's CreedAssassin's Creed Chronicles : ChinaAssassin's Creed Chronicles : RussiaAssassin's Creed Chronicles : India
BTA (currently around $5.66):Assassin's Creed II Deluxe EditionAssassin's Creed Liberation HDAssassin's Creed III plus Tyranny of King Washington DLC
Pay $15 or more and unlock:Assassin's Creed UnityAssassin's Creed Brotherhood
Pretty good bundle if you don't have any of the Assassin's Creed games, I may bite on the $1 tier, as I only have Chronicles China, and like to try the Russia and India. Uplay keys, so uplay is required.
I just played the China game last week - kind of like Mark of the Ninja and the original Prince of Persia. Totally worth a buck.
Ass Creed 3 is still free on UPlay.
I subscribed to the annual subscription, you get a bonus game as well. I figured $20 for 13 games couldn't be too shabby.
Haha, they never give up :)
Is it weird that AC 4 (Black Flag) is missing from that bundle? Possibly it will get added? That's kinda the one I want.
These are the ones I don't own in that bundle. It's probably not worth $5.66 to get those.
I'm in the exact same boat.
Liberation is feeling pretty threadbare as a desktop experience, and Tyranny of King Washington is eminently skippable. The Chronicles might be worth a buck though.
I bought China on sale a while back, hoping for more "Mark of the Ninja" style gameplay. And it definitely is that, although in some ineffable way, less so. So if you liked Mark of the Ninja (and of course you did), it's probably worth a buck.
Whom do you think supplies the keys for these games to Humble? It's the publisher, UBI. Imagine the gall of them making them keys from their games platform.
Especially considering that latter AC games with steam keys end up launching through Uplay anyway.
"Man, I can't believe they won't sell me an In And Out Burger at Arbys..."
I was a bit obnoxious there, but I spent my entitlement on a great bargain for game library client fatigue. Sorry for the derail.
Diablo 3 is on sale for $10 base game, $10 expansion from Blizzard.
Gamestop has the console versions for $20 for base and expansion together. (Reminder: Console version is better).
Mass Effect 2 free on Origin for PC.
Console version is missing things from the PC version, right, like seasons and such?
They each have unique things. The PC version has seasons and inventory tetris.
The console version has offline play, same screen multiplayer, controller support (really good controller support), circular no-hassle inventory system.
When the console version first came out it was even better, since they had an overhauled loot system that made the loot system much better than in the PC version, but those changes were eventually ported over to the PC version as well, so those are the same now.
Oh, the PC version never benefited from the controller support?
Never. And it never will. And their reasons for it makes sense. The two games are balanced differently.
I agree that the balance and feel of the game is quite different. And I like the console feel a lot more.
Yes, reading about the console version, it seemed like a game that sounded up much more appealing to me than the PC one. Oh well, thank you for the detailed answer!
