Looking through descriptions and video clips of it, the arrows are a bit different. Although similar. They expanded it in this game. You dont need to unlock anything first to get them. Just with an ordinary arrow, walk up to any flame thats on the floor or a lit door or whatever, hold your arrow in it and it lights up, then you can do whatever you want with it. All the ideas may not be original, but the way you do things in that game are fairly unique. Plus it was one of the few first games that used physics properly, not pre-programmed scripts.

Dark Messiah? yeah I played it on the Xbox360. Despite being one of UBI Soft's infamous dodgy ports it was good. Arx Fatalis was very good aswell.

I got to play roughly 20 minutes. Its put together real well and the physics are nice. It must be challenging because after the intro I kept dying (had it on hard mode). You have to have a strategic plan if you don't have enough patience or mana. But otherwise its enjoyable.

I read from its wiki that it was very repetitive and a ton of mixed reviews.

No different to any other game like Oblivion etc. This one just has properly set up stages and a story to go with it.

Ok I put my list together...


Tropico 4 with all DLC
Jade Empire ulimate edition
Saints row 3 with all DLC
To the Moon
Fallout new vegas ultimate
Gratuitous Space Battles/Gratuitous Space Tank Battles with all DLC
Anno2070 Collectors set
DA Origins ultimate
Shoot many robots
Company of heroes complete pack
Metro 2033
Stacking
Prince of Persia pack
Robin Hood
Batman Arkham City with DLC
Shogun 2 Fall of the Samurai
Trine 2
Lunar Flight
Crusade Kings 2 with DLC
M&M Clash of Heroes
Jericho
Red Alert 3 with expansions
C&C4
Legendary
Trauma
Zombie Driver
Lords of the Realm
Stronghold Crusader
LA Nior complete
Universe Sandbox

..I THINK thats all.... Most of those are steam. Maybe 5 are elsewhere like GamersGate and GoG. Thats probably around $200 spent. On... At least 38 games if I count expansion packs as they're generally $20-$30 on their own depending, and how ever much dozens of DLC in the packs. ROUGHLY well over $1500. If this was xbox it would be $2000 lololoollool

Also just bought me 8 games on GoG for $28 since they were having a sale.

The Feeble Files
Simon the Sorcerer 2
Simon the Sorcerer 3D
Simon the Sorcerer
The Journeyman Project 2
The Journeyman Project 3: Legacy of Time
11th Hour, The
Fahrenheit (Indigo Prophecy)



Theres some games I wanted but didnt get cause I spazzed out and missed a sale or it didnt go on sale as much as I hoped. Missed out on ArmA2 combined operations, and Heroes 6 didnt go low enough to appease my wallet. I Bought a few games for some friends but thats not being added to the spent list. I'd also like to add if that had been in AUS currency and I'd bought all that shit in my stores, it would of been brutal. Probably double that. But since our dollar is slightly better than the US its like buying everything at 40% by default when theres no sales lololol. We get screwed here so badly.

What a nice selection. I paid full price for LA Noir, both Fallouts, DAO, and Batman back when they launched. So you saved a ton there.

I also have Robin Hood off of GOG, the Legend of Sherwood.

Jericho is also a hit and miss. It did a few things real well, but it was very short. I'm also shocked you didn't pick up The Darkness II when it was on sale. I paid $30 about a month after it launched and I believe Steam had it for around $13.

Heroes VI is tough to find cheap. I got V for a reasonable price a long time ago. Disciples III was one I was also interested in, but I've heard some pretty bad things about it.

I can add one more to mine. From the UbiStore too.
AC3 - PC

The entire Might and Magic series is 66% off on their website too. A weekend event too.

Heroes III is fantastic for those new to the series and its on sale for $3.40.

Yeah, Jericho I was always interested in but never got around to it and since it was $3 I thought why the hell not. Darkness 2 I watched a friend play it for a while. Looked ok but not really for me. Also heard bad things about Disciples 3 too. They all say just stick to 2, and theres plenty of expansions for that one I havent played yet. And not a fan of the AC series.

Just checked the ubisoft store. Sadly their copy of 6 is more expensive than in my own stores, which is horribly retarded. One day. Wish the new Kings bounty would hurry up and be made. I really want to play a game in this style.
