Categories > Downloadable Games > 2K GAMES > Borderlands: Game of The Year + Borderlands 2: Game of The Year [Online Game Code]

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Surpised
Pros: -Lots of fun playing and replaying this game
-Both for $12... what a deal
Cons: -Physx (software by Nvidia)
Other Thoughts: -I didn't think this cartoon looking FPS game would be any fun, but it was
-Physx turned on, while it looks amazing... it really hits hard on performance regardless what graphics cards you have in your system.
In extreme fights (with physx on) frames rates really really drops.... from 100's to under 30...

Categories > Downloadable Games > Bethesda Softworks > Fallout 3 Xbox 360 [Digital Code]

Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2 "Full Game" is misleading
Pros: Fallout 3 is a great game
I love Fallout
Cons: DLC is NOT included
Other Thoughts: The phrase "full game" visible on the product image is misleading. This, to me, means "DLC included." No DLC is included with this. If I'm going to buy a digital code for a game, of course it's going to be the complete original game. Throwing "full game" on it can then only mean one thing: full, complete, DLC included.

Save your money. It's cheaper to buy the base game and all DLC from the Xbox store than it is to buy this and then have to buy the DLC on top of it. Base game on Xbox store is $5. Each DLC pack is $5. $5 * 5 = $25 (not taking tax into consideration). This + all 4 DLC = $35.

Categories > Downloadable Games > Sega > Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine Collection [Online Game Code]

Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3 Eh just a game
Pros: I'm a fan of Warhammer 40k games. Picked this up for super cheap right before DOWIII was released. marines vs orks vs chaos in first person shooter style.
Cons: Basically a less well done version of gears of war.
Narrow maps with invisible walls so no Real exploring, but at the same time they hid collectibles, so somewhere might look like a really good place to hide something, but its hard to tell if its actually possible to get there.
Other Thoughts: C+ for pretty much any game demolishing armies with hammers and chainswords and axes. But they could have put in considerably more effort.
I didn't try the multiplayer.
Campaign was like 16 hours on hard including finding most of the collectibles.
Automatically set up to work with an xbox 360 controller.

Categories > Downloadable Games > Sega > Alien: Isolation: The Collection (ROW) (key & link)

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Masterclass in horror that captures the magic of the 1979 classic.
Pros: -) Emphasis on atmospheric tension rather than jump scares.
-) Sound design is superb. This is probably the best thing about the game. Hearing the Alien is more terrifying than seeing it.
-) Level design with stealth in mind. Multiple ways to traverse a room that allow skilled players to bypass threats unnoticed.
-) Deep levels of immersion thanks to the heavy emphasis on environmental detail that submerge the player in the game world
-) The crafting system is nice, though a little simplistic in nature.
-) Apart from the Alien, the next big threat are probably the Working Joe's. Emotionless machines that kill without remorse.
-) The story is gripping and a good follow up to Ridley Scott's masterpiece.
-) The main character, Amanda is likable and, probably the only one whose voice actor is actually trying.
-) Apart from the Revolver and the Shotgun, every item has a well defined purpose and is useful depending on the situation. (Smoke bombs block the view of enemies and conceal the player, Molotov cocktails are useful for crowd control and fending off the Alien, Pipe bombs are the best weapon against the Androids, etc)
-) The puzzles are nice. I would prefer them a little tougher but they are well designed.
-) The use of Audio Logs and Written Logs, a la System Shock 1 & 2, to further deepen the lore of the game is an inspired feature.
-) The return of the cast from the original Alien is awesome and it deepens the immersion in the DLC.
-) Speaking of DLC, Crew Expendable and Last Survivor possess a reality blurring level of immersion that surpasses the main game.
Cons: -)The stealth mechanics are bare bones. Light and shadows mean nothing, the sound propagating engine works... most of the time and line of sight reigns supreme above all other forms of stealth.
-) The checkpoint-based save system needs to die a fiery death. At best, they become superfluous. At worst, the game becomes a chore due to repetition. The myth that checkpoints add tension is a lie.
-) Apart from Amanda and the cast of the original Alien film, every other character has a voice actor with the talent of a plank of wood. It varies from serviceable down to awful.
Other Thoughts: Half way through the campaign, my game glitched and started to stutter. The BGM would disappear at times and the Last Survivor DLC glitched to the point where I couldn't finish it. Reinstalling the game seemed to solve this problems.

As a fan of Stealth games (Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory being my favorite game of all time), I adore this game. If you like sneaking and enjoy slow and methodical games, then Alien: Isolation is for you. This games in meant to be played with patience. It punishes haste and rewards forward thinking. Borrowing the whole book... I mean a page from the Gospel According to System Shock, the games use of recordings and logs gives further insight into the lives of the people of Sevastopol and of the incoming tragedy.

Emphatically recommended.

Its as if Dead Space were a good game.

Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3 Just get Borderlands 2
Pros: -Borderlands 2
Cons: -Borderlands: It's an old game that wasn't ever optimized and it still isn't on modern system with high end hardware. The game's FPS is capped and it runs ok. Besides performance, the game is terribly boring without playing with co-op but even then, I couldn't get into the story because of the audio bug with 5.1 and above.
