OCN,

What up..

- - -

BioShock Infinite is available for about $7.50 until 03/25/2014. I can get some sort of season pass thing... but is this worth it? I haven't ever played BioShock but it looks polished so...

Geneforge Saga is available for $4.00 for all 5... it is very low budget but looks like a good story... any opinions?

Men of War: something about something... $4.00... hmm...

Payday... I see a lot of people playing this...

Please provide me a link to the Steam sale you would jump on right away... biggrin.gif

EDIT EDIT EDIT

By the way my SSD is full so I am buying these games to play later... so it should be a really good deal to be worth buying right now...

Bioshock Infinite if you don't already have it, pretty great game. The Season Pass is just some DLC. Getting the game for $8 and the DLC for $20 is no deal at all IMO. Don't bother with the Season Pass now. If you get the original game and enjoy it, you can pick up the DLCs later when they are on sale if you want.

Remember Me looks unfriendly to the fan of keyboard and mouse... opinion?

Remember Me is a fantastic game! I played with a controller so I don't know how keyboard/mouse feels.

The Void, if you like games like MYST/Amnesia. Plus it's 99 cents right now.

Bioshock Infinite is a must but I see you are already getting it.

Remember Me has stunning visuals, an attractive protagonist with a sexy voice, a good story, great music and fun combat. The combat is similar to the combat you see in games like Batman Arkham City and Devil May Cry. You can't button mash though, you have to memorize and customize your combos.

PAYDAY 2 is one of the best multiplayer shooters ever made. Here's a good review of it. Private co-op is an absolute must due to the amount of planning and teamwork it requires. It has 4 different classes so it's really diverse, all sorts of heists that are really challenging when you bump up the difficulty, it's very rewarding, and they're constantly giving out free DLC.

The Serious Sam complete pack is a steal... all those games for less than $15. Serious Sam HD (both parts) are some of the most fun co-op shooters I've played. Shadow Warrior is on sale too, it has impressive mechanics and is decent fun.

Killing Floor is an easy purchase, it's a great co-op survival game with so much content (the devs constantly give out free content too), plus an abundance of mod support. Or better yet, get the entire Tripwire bundle. Killing Floor, one of the best co-op games, plus Rising Storm which is one of the best PvP shooters (it's like a much more mature, tactical, and realistic Battlefield game, what I would have liked to see the series evolve into), for a mere $25.

I do feel like Im fighting the controls a bit but I dont think this is due to KB+M. The storyline is clenching though and some of the segments have you questioning morals of said abilities (1 hour in)

This storyline could really benefit from a better dev team though, however its one of those hidden gems I had never heard about

EDIT: the music is top of the line, completely compliments the atmosphere
