  1. I think I'll probably be getting this due to hype here and gameplay videos.

    Snark aside, this game is rad. Looking forward to spending more time with it after I complete minecraft.

    What? Can you actually complete Minecraft? I'm assuming you mean the single-player stuff, but I thought there wasn't an ending? Sorry, I don't know much about the single-player.

  2. As part of the reboot I think she needs to go from a double D to like a B or C. Hopefully gamers have grown past that whole boobs = BUY! thing, but probably not. People are sad. :getmecoat

  3. PC games are terrible:


    This is quite the double edged sword. On one hand, this is the only way publishers see a return on producing a physical copy of the game… it’s a way to fund the huge cost of traditional copies. It also becomes terrible in this instance (offering game-changing bonuses).

    On the other hand, if this method dies, and is discouraged, we won’t be seeing physical copies of PC games anymore which will be the greater loss (for me anyways).

  4. I beat some things recently:

    Worms 2 - Believe it or not, this game runs on Windows 7... barely. Also, it has 45 single-player missions which for the most part are poorly designed; however, one mission, 44 in particular is insane. You have to find a way to glitch the engine/AI to be able to beat it, was this a joke or something in the Team 17 team? But anyways, it's still an integral part of my teenage years and I love it (just not the single-player).

    Halo 3: ODST - My favourite Halo is recent memory... definitely surpassing 2 and 3. I just loved the atmosphere and soundtrack so much, and the departure from the typical Halo "save the universe thing" was nice.

    Vindictus - My bimonthly affair with a random new MMORPG set my sights on this gem. Was excellent until I got bored (not saying it's boring, that's just how I am with MMOs). Very high polish with neat, unique gameplay. Issues: Lag and story (but hey, at least there was some story).

  5. I haven't heard of this site before, but I guess it's kind of like a Steam-thingy that has it's own client but allows trade-ins? It's kind of weird... they are also doing a huge deal/sale thing that allows you to purchase any game, then trade it/give it back for a refund of the full price (minus $1). So it's basically like $1 rentals, online. I've also heard that this is refunded in store credit; however, it can be used for future purchases through their service which stocks a huge pile of euro-pc titles, obscure titles, and other indie-esque stuff.

    They have ALOT of cheap games with some ranging in the 90% off margin. Furthermore, with their normal trade-in system, you can buy some games for like $2 then trade it in for 50 cents store credit, or just keep it.


    BUT WAIT - I've heard some bad things about their downloader and DRM methods. Supposedly you have to log in every three days or you lose access to your games? I haven't confirmed this or even used the service (yet?) but for a couple bucks I can get a lot of games.

  6. ^ What?

    (I assume it's a bot, since it's about a million miles off topic, but it's rather coherent for a spam bot.)

    I was thinking the same thing too... but they also mentioned "TLJ" (The Longest Journey) had sad music in the sad music thread. It's definitely not an automated bot, but perhaps a human that knows some... stuff... about stuff, then posts some stuff.

  7. If you have Windows 7 Professional, you have the options for every compatibility mode under the sun; however, if it's just standard - I think there is still a Windows 95/98 mode? Have you tried any of those settings? You can also check off things like: Disable visual themes, disable desktop composition, disable display scaling.

    Right click the .exe(s) and look for these settings under the "Compatibility" tab.

  8. Track 4 (Deference for Darkness)


    Track 4 is split into three parts (or separate songs). If you want to hear my favourite track in the whole or game, or like... any game, forward to the 3 minute mark; however, the sad song is the first one in the series, and I guess the third one is pretty somber as well. I just connected with Halo 3: ODST's soundtrack so much... I love so many songs from it.
