Rent... And I say that with hesitance. If your playing solo the experience is dramatically different. Extremely poor A.I. bots. But even playing multiplayer Brink is not really all that fun. Rent at your own risk.
I dont think you can really said which game is better. I think a better question would be which game gave you the best experience and I would clearly have to say Dead Space 2. Bought extremely fun and quality games but COD is basically an over the top action and explosions everywhere, shoot whatever moves, never have to conserve ammo, sensory overload. Wheareas DS2 is a tense and enthralling game where you have to conserve ammo, upgrade weapons, a variety of different enemies, guns, and you feel like every kill was an accomplishment cos you had to shoot em in the limbs coming at you at all directions whearas COD you just wait til the enemy AI sticks his head up from cover and blow it off. The kills are more satifying, and the experience overall is better.
Whether it was stolen from your home, or from the mailbox, or from the USPS, I dont think you should be held liable to pay for any game stolen from your property. At least on a first time situation. Multiple times then I think that would be a problem. Gamefly should always anticipate a very small possibility of this and out of good will clear you of liability. If they require addition information like a copy of the criminal report or other accounts of the theft you should willingly provide it. The only time I think you should be held liable is if you physically damaged the game and scratched it or dropped it or put it in a unplayable state. Then its only fair you should pay. And act that directly involved you damaging or misplacing the game. Someone breaking in your house is beyond your control. IDK if Gamefly will charge you. They are basically at the mercy of their subscribers. They ship out nearly 600,000 games a months but only get back probably around 550,000. But i honestly think most of that is USPS.
Assuming everything will stay the same price wise, I think Gamefly is absolutely worth it. I look at it like this, I own 6,000 games for about 25 dollars a month. It is without question the best value for a gamer. The turnover is fairly good, not great. Customer service is good. The only problem is not enough new releases in stock. If you dont get it on release day it could take in upwards of 2-3 weeks for it to be shipped. That is too long to have a slot open. I have a 3 games out plan solely for that reason cos I know anything less would be frustrating.
High availabilty = 75% or greater odds of shipping. Medium availability 50-74% odds. Yeah I think I would be a little POed too. Ive been waiting 2 weeks for a game thats hasnt moved from low availability(25-49%).
Wasn't really really that hard for me. Its all in the way you approach the game. You cant just cant jump from out of the corner and kill everything that moves. You have to approach enemies tactically. I actually think the cloak makes this game reasonably easy. I usually cloak and try to take out guys one at a time and sneak up on them until theres like 3 of them left and ill jus finish the rest off all at once with maximum armor.
While Crysis 2 has stunning visuals and pretty good gamefly, I cant say its better than black ops. Black ops and other COD games are just much more of a exhilerating experience and better mutiplayer. There are too many lows in Crysis and not enough really good weapons and the enemy AI is kind off a bit. But Crysis 2 is definitely up there.
Im not sure Gamefly will raise their current stock. I think you just have to wait it out a couple of weeks for other subscribers to return the game. I understand Gamefly has to limit their supply to a certain amount of games to make profits. It would be impossible to guarantee everyone a new release.
Yeah one week isnt gonna get it. Although I still think you will be in a good posistion to get the game reasonably soon. Its weird that Portal 2 has been listed as "available now" for like 2 days and still hasnt been shipped. I think that might be a error. Portal 2 is in much more of a demand than that. Im waiting for Socom 4 and I had it in Q for about 2 months. I probably wont get it until late next week. The waiting is starting to become unbearable.
