    NV, for me, has high replayability. But not for all I think. I'm a pack rat in game, so I pick up everything and put it in one of my stashes and somewhat organize it...Hardcore mode definitely makes the game more replayable, but many people complain about water, food issues, ammo, etc...To me, though, it makes me explore more and more completely. Get all the DLCs and you open up a lot more area to explore...Then there are multiple ways to play missions (quests?). I don't do hacks or cheats, so this helps with the challenge of the game.

    Saints Row! Now that sh$t is FUN! I did not think I would like it as it looked geared to kids, but it is fun as hell...Plus you can customize your character's "look" almost any way you can think of...I am partial to busty blondes (I know-Cliched). I began to wonder about myself when I started "accessorizing" her outfits HAHA.

    Some of the original Steam pricing makes me laugh... Crysis 2 is 75% off yet still £9.99 (£39.99 RRP!!!). Also, Risen 2 is included as the next offer but with a 33% discount, it's going to still be almost £30 (another £39.99 RRP)!!! :eek:

    In the states it's about $3.50 cheaper. I don't know why they do that.

    Well, other than that it plays like Assassin's Creed II?
    On Brotherhood, you have helpers that you can summon to assassinate targets.

    Revelations have that too, but with the added castle defense-style mini game where you put assassins on roofs to take out soldiers with in order to defend your assassin den.
    Then there's the hookblade for zipping through...well, zip lines, and a (slightly annoying) first-person, puzzle platformer extra 'missions' about Desmond's past.
    And bombs...various bombs (well, 'grenades' to be exact) that you can craft.

    Good choice. Revelations is just Brotherhood full of bonus stuff that you dont really need, in a different city.

    Imo:

    AC2 - best, AC-BH - very good, AC-Rev - kinda uninspiring, AC1 - plain boring

    Got high hopes for AC3 though, seems to be a bit different (free nature climbing, hunting, mass battle scenes, new gameplay style, new environment, ship combat)

    Wish I'd bought Civ V: Gods & Kings now when it was £15 (25% off) as I've a feeling it won't be discounted any more than that. :(

    yeah sure Alice had an RRP of 50euro, so on sale it was 12.50euro but in the US it was $5 and £3.50 or so in the UK, i have no clue why they do that, i have never seen Alice being 50euro on steam in the past 6 months.

    At least crysis 2 is 10.49euro here on 70% off with RRP of 35euro, pity the game is $hit lol

    I have myself 80+ hours in NV. Totally good replayability, especially with mods.

    OWB DLC is simply amazing. Haven't tried the others.

    True, but it does bring some closure to Brotherhood's story.
    And it was $17 for the whole shebang, so it wasn't really that bad of a deal.

    To be fair, at the time AC1 was out, there was nothing else came close to its gameplay. =b
    Of course, by the time ACII was out, AC1's wow factor for its gameplay mechanics have faded long since.

    Well, looks like I can stroke another off the list! Batman AC for $10 through the community choice sale. It was close, 45% chose Batman, 41% chose Witcher 2. I would have bought either one as I want them both! :)

    This sale is already starting to get expensive for me, and I didn't even know about it until yesterday! Some great deals though I must admit. I could use a great deal on Max Payne and Alan Wake, those are the two I'm waiting for.

    It will be discounted next Winter Sale to be honest. As many other game I will have to play I think I can wait until then to save another $10-15.
