Yeah, I've always wondered just how good the AC series is, but from the commercials they sure don't look like rpgs to me at all. Maybe more like Tomb raider or something similar?

Well the first one was about as far from an RPG as possible. Lots of fun jumping around though.

The animation was great and super well polished, but gameplay became VERY repetitive.

Hmmm… Is it any similar to Thief series? I enjojed Thief back then…
But if it's just jumparound fest only, then I'll definetly skip it.

Well, it's more than that. There is a bit of sneaking around, and sneaks in and out to do assassinations, wild escapes, etc. Various combat moves/combos too. But medeival parkour is really what it's mostly about.

I may have been wrong; there may be some selection of skills at level up, so perhaps there is some RPG to it. No choices or consequences though.

Unbelievable price on Anachronox.
GOG of course, till tomorrow mornin':
http://www.gog.com/news/classic_gem_promo_anachronox

If there is a game I'd love to see rebooted, this one is it. Even if it doesn't get the refresh ever, still it's a great game.

Wow, thanks for the heads-up on Anachronox, 2.39 was just too cheap to not purchase this. Looking forward to it right after I finish Gothic 2.

Same here - I hadn't gotten it when it came out on GoG because I had just played it on CD. But at that price there was no way I could NOT buy it!

One more good thing guys, GOG usually adds only official pathes to games, but in case of Anox, they've applied even the patch made later by the former developer and it fixes all questbugs (including to me very annoying bug where you can't solve a quest with a child toy, yea, I'm a nitpicker).
Bad thing? The rare doorlord crash bug that happens on 0.0000001% machines wasn't addressed, but luckily, if any of you stumbles upon it, there is a fix elsewhere to download:
http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/19660…ronox/55653065
or here: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/17053904/DLF.exe
I wonder why I think this game is completely opposite to Skyrim…

GOG also added another great game, it's not RPG though:
http://www.gog.com/gamecard/clive_barkers_undying
But it does have skills that can be upgraded during the game based on your choice so in a way we can say it has RPG elements. Horror, humor, suspense, thrill, awsome story - for just 6€.
I hate FPS genre, but when it comes to this game I wish they made more stuff like this one instead of dumb grinders. The only minus is far too long above-the-skies part, luckily everything before and after is awsome.

And Omikron: The Nomad Soul!

Granted, it's been a while since I played it, but I loved every minute of it. Very intriguing setting, and good story! I can recommend it.

I can't reccomend Undying enough. The best haunted and creepy house setting I've played.

Green Man Gaming and GamersGate have sweetened the deal for their Bioshock Infinite pre-order bundle. You now get Bioshock 1 and XCOM + 1 other game if you pre-order from them. The offer is good until the 26th.

That is a sweet deal … I do like the Blue Coins (have paid for games with them in the past) - but since I own everything else on the list, I think I will just wait for Bioshock Infinite to go on a 50% off sale within a month …

I think you're being a little overly optimistic there.

Probably … but I'm fairly patient, and have a huge backlog

… oh, and #2 wasn't as good as the first one, giving me added pause at over-aying (again).

I never finished Bioshock 2, but I agree it didn't seem as good as the first game. However, that wasn't developed by the same team.
