Coach :"Now that sounds like a PLAN" :P
I think I might now get the game from steam. Homefront was never on my buy list but getting a free game is not so bad, right?
Nice deal. I really enjoyed Metro 2033.
Activision and EA just died a little inside when they saw someone giving out ANYTHING for free, much less a whole game.... BLASPHEMY.
Activision, maybe. EA seems to have a bi-polar marketer since they gave BurnoutParadise for free to UK and then made a BC2+Vietnam bundle that was more expensive than the sum of its parts. =/
Also with dead space 2 on steam, instead of giving it away free to people who pre-ordered it, they only discounted it to $5. They would have increased their sale by so much buy gifting that game to the people, and it would have justified that $60 price tag. Even though I got it a week later on amazon for $40.
well its valve, the company that made a mistake in their VAC system that banned 12,000 people by mistake and then they unbanned them and gave them all 2 L4D2's for free (one for a friend).
What are you talking about? It's not Valve, it's THQ's call.
Metro 2033... Great game. Very tense and thrilling. As much as I hated the gas mask sequences, they were thrilling ;P Can't wait for the sequel.
that's a deal i could get behind.
a good deal on steam? of course!
Metro 2033 was a great game imo, and i have an eye on homefront, so all in all great deal
Great deal but the question is do I want the game? I can't help but shake the feeling that this is a COD/BC2 clone that will just get old really fast....what say you fine folks of N4G (there aren't many of you)....you think it's got staying power or is it kinda meh?
It doesn't like a CoD clone. I'm liking the SP aspects of the game, and i'm sure the multiplayer won't be a CoD clone. But my fear is that the game will be forgotten really fast.
The team behind the game are ex-battlefield modders who then became part of dice, after They became Kaos Studios where they made Frontlines: Fuel of wars, so they have multi-player pedigree and enough experience to make a multi-player game with lasting appeal.
That does sounds like a good deal,although I'll get Homefront for my PS3 if it's any good.My old 360 needs to get repaired.
