    So far nothing that excites me really. If Witcher 2 wins the first round of voting then I might pick that up. Have been waiting on Last Remnant to drop below $10 bucks for sometime, currently at 17 so there is still hope.

    That reminds me. Went on a vacation over the weekend to visit old friends
    I was informed that one of them got rather fat since I last saw him
    When I saw said fat friend I should have taken a pic cuz my first thought was "Oh my god... Gaben Jr!"

    Some nice deals on there
    Portal/Portal2 combo for $6.24
    MW3 half off (yank, yank)
    Bethesda collection for $50(Brink/Fallout:NV/Skyrim)
    Square/Eidos collection for $50(DeusEx series, Hitman, JustCause2, TombRaider)

    Valve pack is pretty huge too, tho I suspect most will already have a bulk of it

    32% for Batman, 36% for SR3, and 31% for The Witcher 2. So I guess Gaben ate the remaining 1%?

    So what's this bullshit about anyways? Worth getting, or is it just another GTA clone?

    Jacks, perhaps you'll find this a bit more relatable:

    It is a GTA clone, but lots of things are done differently. Some things, like combat, are done much better imho. Other things, like vehicle physics and damage, are done much worse imho. Saints Row games have always been more arcade-y and wacky than GTA games, if that's even possible.

    It's more like the older GTAs (San Andreas/Vice City/III) and practically nothing like GTA IV, with the realism and stuff, which Saints Row does not have.

    As to whether or not the game is good ... eh, I liked it. It wasn't mind-blowing, but none of the SR games were. It was relatively solid mindless-destruction fun for the 10 or so hours it took for me to finish the campaign. There are also tons of upgrades and unlockables to find if you fancy that sort of thing (I don't.)

    There is also an awesome section where ... (non-massive spoiler ahead:)
    ... Burt Reynolds enlists your help to fight off the beginnings of a zombie apocalypse in the middle of the city. Yep, zombies and Burt-Fucking-Reynolds. And also a guy that talks completely in autotune. Saints Row is cool like that.
    In the end, I'd probably buy it if I didn't already have it. You should play the first two games before the third if possible, Saints Row does actually follow a series plot. The first two are more-or-less just as good as the third.

    Saint's Row is great because it never gets in the way of letting you do ridiculous stuff that's just flat-out fun.

    Want to skydive as a drag-queen clown and blow up rival gangs or innocent bystanders with a grenade launcher? How about a gun that shoots fish guts, attracting a shark that pops up through the sidewalk and eats the guy chasing you down? Drive a tank through city streets causing mayhem? Don a Hotdog costume and hijack a boat or a flying motorcycle? Bodyslam pedestrians while wearing a wrestling outfit?

    Yep, you can do any of that stuff. Why? Because it's funny as hell.

    Anyhow... day 1 picked up:
    - Spellforce 2 Gold $5 (I've been looking for a good NWN kind of game)
    - Legend of Grimrock $6 (a crazy cool old school dungeon crawler - map editor coming soon!)
    - Might and Magic Clash of Heroes + DLC $4 (Mix Puzzle Quest, a bit of strategy, and some charming JRPG art)

    Day 1 for me was both of the Renegade Ops dlc for $4.73 total

    And just picked up Trine 2 for $3.74. Would have picked up the first game as well since they also discounted the 2 pack for 75% off, but it is local coop only so screw that business.

    I would strongly recommend terraria if somehow you dont already have it, and the binding of isaac is pretty fun too.
