Forgot to add a internet requirement to the PC version unless something has changed. Last I looked the game is digital distro only for PC in the US.

$2000-3000 for a gaming PC? rly Yerli? I think my desktop was around $500 a couple years ago, and it still runs everything. I suppose the purported high cost of PC gaming is one of the myths that keep console gamers from feeling like chumps, so it lives on.
Remember you needed a "$4000" computer to run that Star Wars Unleashed on PC when it came out. Rolleyes

For anyone who plays FFXI this sounds familiar.

SE always cried "PS2 limitations" when users asked for more inventory space. Something that did not limit PC users which 90% of the people played on by that point.

Big shock! They found some way to give us more space at a later time after having to buy a $10 keybob.

I must be the only guy in the world that has never played Halo. Still have not forgiven Bungie for selling out to Microsoft, or Microsoft for making it XBox-exclusive and then using it to market Vista. They can kiss my undead sorceror's ass.

The Master Chief is just a corporate symbol used by idiots in suits to sell things. If the products were any good, they wouldn't need it.

I've never played it. I don't own a console, and never bought it for PC.

Interestingly, a few months ago, my wife came upon a shrink-wrapped Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS at Goodwill. It has bundled some pretty awesome games: Jedi Knight Academy, Tomb Raider: Angel of Darkness, Rainbow Six 3, Splinter Cell, and the original Halo. So, I may get around to it at some point.
Wow. Thats... wow. Damn thats a good set of games.

I love how no one has reported that in the US the only way to get the new Tomb Raider is digital download. There will be no physical copies.

Is there some practical reason to charge for namechanges? Aside from greed, I mean. Maybe consistency lets players more easily keep track of who they have played against?
Usually the cost is to prevent people from harassing others, changing their name, harassing more people, changing their name, harassing even more people...

It must be late because I read "erects" and "Lego for adults" and was scared to click the link, but after doing so, felt oddly disappointed lol.
Good... I'm not the only one who thought that.

Bad move. It's the tv that will be the computer in a year or two. He should be working with the tv manufacturers to sign deals to have steam a default app on the tv. Why waste money on a another console type thing? Gabe needs to rethink his plan.
I like this idea!

Basically your personal OnLive/Gaikai. Leave your high end PC in your computer room or wherever and stream it to your big assed TV over Ethernet.

Once in a blue moon I do like to play a game on my large TV instead of at my desk. Here I don't have to buy another machine or drag my computer into the room.

Oh, it got released for the season pass, while I got them from the deluxe edition.

Steam deluxe edition came with the season pass.

They milked the market, destroyed the fanbase that got them where they were. Now they are cashing out.

Not surprising.

Here is the problem with this.

There are no settings in games for 'gamepad only' players as far as I know. So anyone using a controller is going to be at a serious disadvantage in MP games.

If I remember, most FPS MP games tend to give controller players a basic autoaim to help against mouse/keyboard players.
And those that do are trash. If in MP NO ONE should have auto aim. Period.

Crysis 2 anyone?
