I bought AC3. I like the AC series and I don't see what was so bad about tower defence. If your any good you only ever had to do it once. ;)

Which is exactly one of my points:
It was to easy, dull and you only had to do it once. Waste of space, time and money.

Ah ok. I thought people were annoyed with it.

Started playing AC3, haven't even seen Connor yet and I'm pretty bored already. :roll:

Just bought Dawnguard at 50% off. Also, got FTL the other day, it's quite enjoyable, haven't really got to play for any length of time though.

Stick with it, soon after you get Connor you will get a boat, and the boat missions are great...

The ending will tick you off though.

So, the Trine franchise is on sale. Is it worth getting the whole thing, or am I better off just buying Trine 2, seeing as it just seems to be a better version of the first one?

Also, Orcs Must Die! franchise. My brother and I are thinking about picking up the complete edition of the second one in that 2-pack, or just two of the vanilla game, which would safe us some 70 cents each. Are the DLC's worth the extra cents? I'm guessing yes, since 70 really ain't that much.

Thoughts?

I grabbed Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2 Digital Deluxe. I have beaten ME before but stopped about half way through ME2 this time I will stick it out and give the game a better chance. Plus I want to play as FemShep again.

Thinking about buying the Deep Ocean expansion for Anno 2070, but need to know if it's multiplayer compatible with vanilla as my friend's not going to buy it for some time yet.

Rock of Ages - 1,91 EUR
Trine 2 - 3,24 EUR
Total: 44,16 EUR

Seems to me like it will be over in 4 hours, so all in all I'm rather pleased. Haven't tried most of the new games yet, but I can say that Mark of the Ninja, what I have played of it so far is a superb stealther, Torchlight II seems to be made of some form digitalised meth on a level with Diablo 2 back in the days, Ace of Spades is fun, if a bit rough around the edges and Intrusion 2 hast the best I have seen in what probably amounts to decades and big, hairy balls of steel.

Kinda bummed I didn't buy Spec Ops: The line when it was on a Flash sale a couple of days ago. I somehow overlooked the fact that the sale will end one day, so I waited too long and I don't want to buy it at only a regular discount.

Bought KOTOR again.
This time all I had to do to get it running was to delete the commercial intro's of the game.

Wait, no. They're going for two days, all of them and the sale goes from the 5th to the 7th. Well, fuck you then, Gabe. :snooty: I don't need your handouts. I'll just wait.

Used the extended period to buy all the available DLC for Anno 2070, including the Deep Ocean expansion.
Man that game is addictive!

Well you have mana (The land things) and you knock em sideways to use them, they stand up each turn. And uh you either summon Creatures or spells and try and kill the other guy.

I think I fail the Universal Nerd test. I can't get the hang of MtG at all, I keep getting thrashed by the first guy.
I'll teach it though, I'll smash my laptop with a hammer and we'll see who's laughing then! :crazy:

No the first guy is an absolute bastard. The difficulty curve is way the fuck off for that guy. He trashed me repeatedly until I ran at him with a variety of the available decks I had till he finally caved.

For some reason my Green Deck was fully unlocked and managed to murder him. Not until the revenge campaign second time fighting the white deck of spam have I had such a difficult opponent.
