Also seems to be the case for Arkham Asylum… cool, lol. The Arkham City upgrade is especially nice in my case, though, since I never got around to playing more than 30 minutes at launch.

Now, if they'd only upgrade my Skyrim purchase to GOTY

Wow……the combat in Risen 2 is quite awful, I honestly don't recall it being this poor in Risen 1. I've gone back to M&M 3 now, lol…..at least I only spent 7 bucks on Risen 2.

Yeah, combat's pretty poor. Exploration is fun though.

It's sitting side by side with the original edition.

GotY uses slightly different saves, it seems, but there are instructions in the Steam forums about how to modify the old saves with a hex editor to make them work with the GotY edition. After sitting on the shelf for two years, I'm fine with starting all over again myself.
Ooh, I guess I need to add it to Steam (have a hardcopy). Also, my Arkham Asylum copy! Thanks for the heads up!

Yes, I've been waiting for that as well. C'mon Bethesda. I'm not buying those DLC for more than $5 total, I think.

Yes I got Risen 1&2 in the recent Steam sale. Started playing Risen 1 and was underwhelmed. My problem is that I only play mage characters, and in Risen 1 it sucks. First, I had to play like 10 hours to actually finally become a mage. And then, it's such a weak option compared to melee (probably also archery). After finally getting my spells and increasing my fireball to level 4, went out to test, and awesome! instakilled the first moth I saw, then the 2nd one. A couple of wolves later I was out of mana… 4 or 5 casts. No problem I thought, I remember a barrel with water near here… Nope, it only heals your health, not your mana. Also, all those little spells I found that I thought, once I became I mage, I would be able to cast instead of using scrolls…. nope, at least not in the beginning (and then why would I use my precious little mana on that without easy recovery).

I hope casting got better in Risen 2, if not, wasted money.

Risen 1&2 are not easy games , and you really have to invest in them. Personally, I like that aspect. If you're looking for quicker gratification though then you'll have to look elsewhere.

Weeee, thanks for the notice on King's Bounty items being on sale. The only one I didn't have was Warriors of the North, I feel dirty for picking it up at 8 bucks. Not dirty enough to give it back, however!

Halloween sale at GOG.com.

I grabbed "I have no mouth…" and Pathologic. The latter seems very intriguing, yet disturbing at the same time. Anyone here played it yet?

Grabbed Fallout 3 GotY for 5 bucks currently on sale at Steam. They've got a few sales going on right now, I played F3 when it first came out but never did the dlc's so this will be something to tide me over till BG 2 extended comes out next month.

Another title to catch my eye during this Steam Sale.

Secret World - Massive Edition
…contains (I think) all up to date issues + some cosmetics. Great all-in-one price on a great game.

Thanks All

grabbed Secret World, I too had my eye on it for awhile.

I was about to grab Fallout 3 but the steam web page says it is not Optimized Prime for Windows 7. Where does that put me when I got me Windows Metro?

The Gamebryo engine is optimized for nothing beyond a single core pentium 90 as far as I'm concerned. It's simply horribly coded. Having said that, while I believe I've only played FO3 on XP, I've spent hundreds of hours in FNV while on Windows 7… and they're built on the same [horrible] engine.

I've never played Fallout 3 on anything other than Windows 7.

Been trying to play "I Have no Mouth". Very disturbing game. I'm going to try to beat the game being a good guy but the 5 characters in the game are total A-holes. For example one of the characters is a doctor and the main antagonist places the doctor in an Auschwitz type camp . . . right before surgery. Hard to play more the 20 minutes with out taking a break.

Now I'm going to do some Gothic 3 grinding . . . . ahhhhhhhhhhh
The Kiting Life for me.

and consider Fallout 3 for the next 3 days.

You can get "I have no mouth and I must scream" through the pay-what-you-want VODO bundle (along with some other goodies which might interest conspiracy theorists!):
