Nope, I just wanted it in my Steam profile, oh well. I will get my $60.00 worth! hahahaha

Can't wait - our crew is nice and plump with 82 members! We shall see how many people get the PC version.

BOOM

GTA5 at Green Man Gaming is 46 and change with a coupon.....

59.99 at Steam if you want it linked to your Steam account, and you get 1.3M instead of 1M, and you get and extra copy of SA.

(Looks like you get SA and the extra cash anywhere.....)

Looks like Nuuvem has GTA5 for 35, but I have never purchased from there....

If you buy directly from R* you get a free game from a list of games
Max Payne 3 is in that list.....

Couldn't the devs put the game on Humble Bundle or a similar service and regions don't matter? (no clue about the laws on your island)

Thanks for info guys. I just loaded Win7 on it for simplicity for him. he doesn't have an MSN account, and I wasn't going to walk him through all of that. He is good with Win7, we will just leave it at that.

One very cool tool I used, since I had to do a fresh install of Win7 and all drivers for this Toshiba model are Win8, this tool worked like a dream - so much so that I donated to the site.

Driver Identifier.

No more trying 10 different things not knowing what that stupid little yellow question mark is. Thing worked like a dream. Awesome.

/Thread jack -

So I mentioned last week that I saved some data from my old man's laptop. Well, it has hardware failures that probably made it do what it did - so I ordered him a new laptop.

Came with Windows 8.........hmmm...he doesn't even have a MSFT account.....proooooooobbbbably going to format and install Win7....

Thoughts?

I bought 3 copies of the game

That was your choice which you made of your own free will. If you keep buying these copies at full price, why do they have any incentive to offer a discount? Makes no sense at all. Next time vote with your wallet if you want a discount. That's a language publishers listen to.

We all know that it isn't. They don't care. The game will sell millions and they know that. Period, end of story. Anyone in here who says they won't buy it is a liar.

Lastly, what is that weapon thing in pic 022?

Markus is really into movie props, he hired a company to decorate the place and they bought a number of pieces including the Brando bike from Wild One, it's in the pics - the guns a prop from a James Bond movie, don't remember which one.

I won't claim to have recognized it right off, but as the self-designated authority on the Bond books and movies, I felt compelled to research this.

I'm pretty sure that's a Browning M1919 fired from the helicopters attacking the oil rig at the end of Diamonds are Forever.

Considering there is a Bond book next to it - I would imagine you are correct sir!

What did YOU do to help?

You come across like an ass, so here, let me talk your language.

I BOUGHT 3 FUCKING COPIES OF THE GAME YOU [expletive deleted].

Has nothing to do with entitlement, not sure how you get that out of what I said, you are probably bleeding my comments over with someone else's. Next time don't use the quote function.

It isn't a different product. It is a re textured version of the same game.

It isn't unheard of to get a discount because you have a game from a publishers catalog. Happens all the time, not sure why you think it is the same as a car or house? Does the game appreciate to the tune of 350k when I don't want it anymore? Do I have a title to the game that I can sell after I have applied really cool upgrades to it? Your reverse nerd rage is confusing.

Pretty awesome. I am loving this. As a Kurt Busch fan - this is so awesome. I can't get enough. It is better than the old WWF.

The only better thing is Clint Bowyer during interviews.

Is the game THAT good? A lot of people were poo pooin it....maybe I can throw this in before GTA 5 comes out? I hammered out Mordor in 2 weeks and did 50 hours. How much time this one take up?


I guess you could hurry through in 10-12 hours. I spent 30+ hours exploring the station and getting all the collectibles. The atmosphere is so gorgeous, it would be a shame to not stop and savour the best bits.

Sweet. It will probably be a 30-50 hour game for me then.

Next question. What version should I get?
Vanilla (15.00)
Ripley (20.00)
Nostromo (25.00)

Looks to make most sense to get vanilla, cause the 2 things given in the other versions are available for super cheap, like a couple bucks each. Am I missing something?

Thanks.

Bats do you like survival horror games? Or rather Ill put it this way. Do you enjoy games which force you to do set piece parts over and over again until you figure out the exact way to get through them by trial and error?

Something tells me I need to watch some broadcasts.....

Well my friends, I have reached Whiskey snob hood. When I am paying 32.00 for a 375ml of Rye Whiskey.......I don't know what to say.... http://www.11wells.com/#!spirits/cihc

On top of that, I have called every Liquor store in Minneapolis and have acquired the current stock of the product....other than the distillery itself, I am now probably the current private household record holder for 11 Wells Prototype Rye Whiskey.....just sayin......it is a sickness.....

Do they actually distill it themselves? Too many of these small startup distilleries are buying the exact same whiskey from the exact same Indiana distillery and charging an arm and a leg for it while they slowly distill their own. Rather than wait 5 years, which makes some sense, they buy what's out there and just mix it. Sadly, that stupid Indiana distillery is where everyone buys it from. Even Bulleit now.

Yup. I know the head distiller, they have a super tiny operation. 1 Mash, 3 holding tanks, 1 pot and 1 still. Some time ago MrGrosser and I spent a few hours at their shop, chatting and sippin. Was awesome.

The 375ml Rye bottle I have at home that is opened is Batch 01 Barrel 11.

Minnesota Rye, Minnesota Oak for the barrels. They then dispose of their by product by getting it to local farmers to use as feed. These guys have their S together. I am more than happy to support a great product and company, that is LOCAL.

MrGrosser has a Bourbon Prototype bottle, but I don't know what batch and barrel he has.

yeah, it was a pretty good party - lots of cool people, that's me in 004. The Minecraft biome room was the shit!

Who the hell are all the rubes? I dunno, was at plenty of HOllywood parties and they were all filled with nobodys from 12 off commercials. Not even joking that Swingers hits the nail on the head. You know how many times I got asked what I drive? Even I got bored of saying "your mom".......

Although a very cool pad, hahahaa what a beautiful landscaped of......SMOG!@
