Hrm... what about Borderlands 1? It uses gamespy too.
I was just thinking the same... I haven't beaten it yet.

I gave my Geforce 260 GTX to my nephew 2 Christmases ago in a rig I built for him. But by another year's time he should have something else anyway.

Morbid curiosity made me search for this, and lo and behold the news post is still here even if the webpage (my first webpage) is not.

I'm getting old.

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me...

Actually I think by now it would be at least thrice.
I'll give Microsoft this though:
Compared to when Direct X first came out with Windows 95, they really got their stuff together to get it working fairly well now (19 years later!)
I feel old.

I agree with above. This game is so minimalist designed and 1-dimensional. I played it for 5 minutes and I just shook my head. It's like those thinly veiled games that are actually ads on the side of a web browser-- you play it for 5 minutes and move on. Not sure what people are in a twist about.

Played the new Plants vs Zombies 2 update on mobile (an EA game)?
It sucks now. Lawnmowers do not replenish when you beat the map (as they did before). You have to pay cash to get them back unless you farm gold on easy but trivial/repetitive maps. It's lame. I sent them an e-mail saying I would be uninstalling the game if it wasn't adjusted/fixed in the next patch.

Lot of places are going down due to DDos today. Here's a visual representation of what's going down.

Good news about the postal 2 steam version is that Running with scissors is adding new DLC, achievements, and bug fixes in a future patch.

What's pretty scary? This dog eat dog game designer world out there where even games that do moderately well are laid off after the completion of a project. I don't how cutthroat Zenimax would be with id, but a series of lukewarm projects may not blow over well with the suits.

Kinda suspected it coming when he joined Oculus Rift. My impression was it seemed like a huge distraction from his job at the time, and maybe things had changed so much in the lands of id that he was looking for different grassy meadows to roam in.

For those of you who just love Blood, but want another taste besides through DOSBOX and GoG, there's M210's BloodCM. It comes close to capturing the Blood feel, supports modern systems, and has high resolution support. http://m210.duke4.net/

Big blood fan here. I would love to see this come to fruition, if the Jace Hall scenario doesn't work out.

Well, for the price of a postage stamp (assuming the rebate goes through), I bought this earlier on slickdeals.net. Can't hurt.

5. Next Xbox Apr 24, 2013, 23:41 Wookiestick
 
Should be interesting to see what will happen to folks who paid for digital Games on Demand and Arcade Games. Will your purchases on your Xbox 360 Live account carry over onto the Xbox III? Can you play those games on there? Or is it tied to the Xbox 360? Microsoft killed online support for the original Xbox a couple years ago, leaving Halo 2 online players unable to play. Is this what downloaded games on Xbox 360 are fated for-- a DLC dead end? Did you buy or rent those games?

32. Tomb Raider sales Apr 9, 2013, 15:21 Wookiestick
 
If you charge 60 bucks for a brand new game in a tough economy, you'd better have something the competition doesn't have to get gamers to fork over their hard earned money. Everyone I knew that played TR bought it used 3 weeks after it was sold brand new by someone else, only to beat it and have little use for it. Then they return it to a used game store for credit. Rinse and repeat.
