Enslaved: Even More on Sale!

#1 Posted by Spoonman671 (4777 posts) -

Enslaved is currently (March 13th) Amazon's video game deal of the day.  It's only $15!  Brad gave it a 4-star review and while it certainly isn't the greatest game, it is definitely worth fifteen bucks.

Sorry, but I have to bump for justice.

#3 Posted by JoyfullOFrockets (1177 posts) -

I really wanna get this game, but my friend keeps telling me I should wait for a price drop. I'd feel guilty having to pay less than 15 bucks for this.

#4 Posted by DeF (4979 posts) -

definitely worth even MORE than fifteen dollars!

#5 Posted by JayDubya (165 posts) -

Enslaved is a great game especially for that kind of money. A bargain!

@Spoonman671: oh wow. that's an awesome deal!

For this price it's a steal and a must buy. Probably one of the more underrated games of 2010 - the character animation, especially the face mo-cap, is top notch.

I bought this game yesterday at my local Best Buy for $15, I had a $5 coupon so it brought it down from the original $20. I haven't popped it in yet because I still have to beat Modnation Racers and Dead Space 2 but I'm really looking forward to it. Also I guess they had a ton of day 1 copies beccause I snagged the version with the Sexy Robot Trip costume which looks cool and doubles the duration of all stun moves.

I think that $15 could be considered a price drop.

I know, right? But I'm not really calling the shots, since he's the one who supplies my games, so I really don't have any choice until he changes his mind.

I finished it this weekend, and it's a fantastic game, certainly in my top 5 from last year, and I feel really guilty for just renting it since it was so good, and it hasn't be a success sales wise, it might be sort of like a Beyond Good and Evil of this generation (never played Beyond Good and Evil, but from what I've heard of it, these games are somewhat similar in certain aspects.)

When you have wealthy childhood friends living somewhere where they can get you cheap games, you take advantage.

It's not that great really. Our agreement is that I play using his Live account and rack gamerscore up for him so he can show off (no idea how that would benefit him in any way...) and he sends me games.
 
It's pretty bad however when he sends me shit I can't stand and still makes me play it otherwise the agreement is off.
#17 Posted by NeVeRMoRe666 (267 posts) -
@JoyfullOFrockets:  I don't even get this. What's stopping you from opening up your own wallet and buying the game?
 
If you don't pick this up now, Imma slap the hell outta your face. 
 
:p

I'm kinda poor at the moment, spent the last money I saved on BlazBlue and another controller.

unless you are doing this already, i must insist that you start blogging the game by game story of your exploits in generating fraudulent gamerscore in exchange for free games.  that is truly a bizarre scenario.

Is there any difference between the 360 and PS3 versions?

That's not a bad idea, but these games are taking up a lot of space in my life as it is. :(
 
Maybe some time in the summer when things cool down. 
 
Heh, I did an oxymoron. Anyone? No?...

Alrighty. Just wanted to make sure. Need more PS3 games anyway, guess I'll get it for that then!
#25 Posted by Deeveeus (479 posts) -
@Spoonman671: I just bought it...thank you so much sir!
#26 Posted by Mutley (300 posts) -

This is just sad, A great game continually getting it's price cut due to lack of sales. 
 
People who haven't  bought it- Buy it.  

#27 Posted by Landon (4164 posts) -

I'd like to get it, don't have money to spend right now :(

#28 Posted by wefwefasdf (6729 posts) -

Bought it last month and really enjoyed playing through it. Almost beat it in one sitting.

#29 Posted by Redbullet685 (6090 posts) -

Everyone who hasn't played it, should get it now.

Just bought it.

#34 Posted by JoyfullOFrockets (1177 posts) -

Well, finally convinced him to get it. I played the demo a really long while ago and loved it, really sad to hear the game didn't do especially good in the sales department.

#35 Posted by DeF (4979 posts) -
@JoyfullOFrockets: since the demo wasn't even really that good you're gonna love the full game then. seriously, Ninja Theory's character work rivals those of other top-of-the-line studios (you know, those with the games that sell millions and millions) and is arguably even better!

Yeah, I saw and felt that even during the first moments of the game. And as much as people are hating on them ruining Dante's character in the DMC reboot, I feel like they'll still pull off something awesome. The look of one character a game does not brake, otherwise the Final Fantasy franchise would've never been as successful as it is.
#37 Posted by AngeTheDude (700 posts) -

Everyone who cares about games as a whole needs to buy this. I got it on Amazon back when it dropped to $25 and it was worth every penny. The characters and storytelling are the best I've seen in YEARS. I've never cared more about characters in a video game.

#38 Posted by SethPhotopoulos (5407 posts) -

It's still only $15!!!!  $19.97 standard shipping.  I got the 2 day and thats $23.

#39 Posted by JoyfullOFrockets (1177 posts) -

I can say so far that it's a fantastic game, but it's clear to me that jumping into Hard right from the get go was a bad idea. Still, amazing graphics and feel to the characters with smooth and easy platforming and hard hitting combat.
