How much did you pay at the garage sale out of curiosity..?

It was a steal at $2. At some point I'll buy it again proper with all the expansions. I've of course got my $2 worth out of the base game, but the ship editor is bugged and annoying. I'm guessing they fixed that.

It's not like I feel ripped off from them; I'm more pissed at the guy that sold it, since he surely knew exactly what he was doing.

Um, are you sure about that?

Yes, because it happened to me. I bought GalCiv 2 at a garage sale. I was unable to get the license transferred to me, and as a result, the jerk that sold it is still enjoying the full game with all the perks, while I get the excellent, but still a bit buggy, boxed version.

When did Valve say Left 4 Dead would cost $45? The site says nothing about it.

I still say that is something that is missing in that StarDock gamer's bill of rights; gamers should have the right to sell their used games and not have them crippled by a non-transferable license.

First they'd have to believe that themselves. Stardock doesn't let you transfer a license.

Cool, I'm interested to see how it performs on my laptop and my aging (HL2-era) PC. I played the 360 version at PAX and it was awesome. A must-buy for me (on PC), but I hope to not have to wait until I can build a new PC.

Once this is perfected, I guess all my games will be filled with giant boobs.

Far Cry 2 is an open environment with missions that unfold based on who you are playing as, who you meet, etc. It sounds like they are going for a game that plays different each time, but who knows how different it will actually be.

I think it looks really cool, and it's nice to see a limited edition actually contain unique gameplay, although I'm not crazy about it being unique to a given store.

I played the demo on 360 and absolutely loved it... and I hate Star Wars.

So if someone buys these, and for whatever reason just can not get them to run, he's screwed, right?

I had not heard these guys before seeing their performance at PAX. They kicked major ass, and I immediately bought their CD, which their guitarist signed. They were very cool guys as well.

I'm afraid I'm going to have to see pictures of these breasts before I can pass judgment on this story.

Of course I've not played the game, but I have my doubts that speeding by some terrain that just happens to look like Rio de Janeiro is going to be more fun than speeding by random terrain.

Pretty crazy that someone could win the lotto not only 4 times, but with the same numbers!

Gears of War 1 and 2 can't even hold a fucking candle to ANY Valve product

ANY? Did you play Blue Shift?

As for me, I'm getting both. I was undecided about L4D, but the recent videos have convinced me. Gears might have to wait and become a Christmas gift though.

Paying a fee so I can use something I already own in another thing I own. Yes, this sounds just like the music industry.

I'm interested to see how they will sell expansions to something that presumably allows you to make everything yourself.

The interest is only slight though... this game really doesn't look like it would appeal to me for more than an hour, which is about how long I played the Sims.

Intentionally putting a crash bug in gamecode sounds like a horrible idea to me. The risk of that bug not getting removed, or causing some other unknown trouble would frighten me.

And then to rely on it to say "oh, his game crashed at that point so he's a pirate..." ugh
