    *Currently not available in the UK, Japan, or Russia. We are not able to offer this title in Burma, China, Cuba, Iran, N. Korea, Sudan, Syria, or Venezuela. Vouchers are not valid on BioShock Infinite."

    So not available for UK folk, because they have dropped from the EU or something it seems. The credit brings the price down to €40.99 in euro land, which doesn't seem a great deal, but if you use that credit on the site, you could get something for free on the site, like "a game of dwarves". Which is tempting. It may be a better deal in US.
    Going by the prices they'd end up giving away something like 20 credit or 15 cashback. That's a fair whack of credit/change to be going towards another new game.

    Doesn't sound great anyway, I'd expect better deals closer to release.

    I actually thought that was more the purpore of this thread: finding deals AND giving an opinion on the games. Especially as so many of the games are less well-known or little indie things. Finding the deal itself is often the easy part seeing as there are websites for that very purpose and all the digital distributors are happy to notify you anyway.

    I actually think he just posted a response meant for another thread, and then proceeded to edit it out.

    Amazon has a Bioshock bundle for 7.49$. There's something I understand though, it says:

    This version of the game utilizes both Steam and Securom DRM to activate and play this game after purchase.
    There is no mention of Securom on Steam's storefront page.

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0083W649I

    edit: figured it out, Securom is listed as hidden DRM for Bioshock 2.

    Most people recommend Ass Creed 2 as the game to play.

    Ass2 or Ass2 Brotherhood. They are the best of the series. Revelations (?) is really just a way for people who followed the series since 1 to get some closure on Altair and Ezio.

    I suggest avoiding Ass1. It had potential, but the execution was VERY flawed in that they didn't want Altair to be super-powerful, but he was anyway (counter trumps ALL). With Ass2, they acknowledged that players could easily be homicidal maniacs, improved the combat DRASTICALLY, and gave you actual incentives to use stealth (rather than attempt to restrict your combat ability).

    If you want me on either service, I suggest PMing me here first to let me know who you are.

    They improved the combat in AC2? News to me.

    Anyway, AC2 is the better game and you should start there most likely, but if you can play through the repetitiveness of AC1 then do it, it actually still feels like an assassination game rather than the adventure type games the newer ones do.

    Thanks for the reply guys.

    If I play AC2 will I be missing some important story? The reason why I only want to buy 1 game is I'm going to vacation sometime in Nov. then when I come back I guess Ill be able to buy the other titles in Christmas Sale.

    I guess Ill just avoid AC1 as it might put me off the series if its that bad.

    AC1 has the best atmosphere and story. The cities and countryside are glorious, straight out of Kingdom of Heaven.

    It's probably best to not dwell too much on the story. I mean the individual tales of Altair and Ezio are fine, but all the sci-fi crap surrounding it is completely laughable. I still have no idea why they didn't drop all that shit and just spend time with various assassins through history as they oppose the Templars.

    Fortunately it doesn't get in the way too much.

    I found counter to be OP in Ass2 as well. And those big brawls with lots of npcs just allowed you to one shot shank everything in your way while their mates stood around waiting for their turn.

    My opinion is that AC1 has the best story, AC2 has the best setting and AssBro has the best gameplay. I think AC2 is my favourite. It has a good scope and nice variation of scenery as well as good gameplay and a decent story.

    Don't worry about the over-arching(?) story, it's mostly just an annoying interruption. I'd recommend buying AC2 and watching a summary of AC1 on Youtube if you're interested.

    Nope. Not unless you're interested in the setting, in which case I recommend it. I liked it, in spite of its shortcomings.

    What? Im about to click that buy button. :(

    Can I play AC1 after AC2 then? Im just afraid that playing AC1 will put me off with the series due to that repetitiveness.

    I guess I'm one of the resident Assassin's Creed fanboys, because I love the overarching story. That said, I still think 2 it the best of the bunch overall, and Brotherhood for the GREAT multiplayer. Don't bother with Revelations, it's Brotherhood but not so good. I would recommend playing AC1 first, but if you want just one go with 2.
    Steam(shots), Imgur, Bak'laag, why do you forsake me?
