PC Gaming > Blues News Top 3 PC Games of All Time

1. Half-Life
2. Command & Conquer
3. Guild Wars


The first two were easy, the third could be filled by a number of games. I decided on Guild Wars simply because of the sheer amount of time I put into that game, along with the fact that any mention of Guild Wars 2 makes me giddy.

So, anyone has the game? How is it?

I just played for a few minutes in a public server to get a feel for the game and I had a blast. Runs smooth as silk, easy on the eyes and just, well, plays well. Gonna be on for a little while if anyone wants to play, just add me (see my sig).

Given how common preloads are, it seems more likely to me that Valve is using this release as a way to test their infrastructure. A solid 2 GB download, during peak hours with high demand. Plus, it's free, so any complaints are easily disregarded (after all, it's FREE).


I'm probably looking too far into it, but in truth the lack of preload doesn't matter to me one bit. My world won't end because I have to wait a little while for a free game that's fun.

I've almost got it downloaded, though Steam is telling me it's slightly over 2GB. It took me 20 minutes just to get it started though, and the download rate has been all over the place (steady at 850 KB/s right now). I hope to jump into it a little later, if the Steam servers haven't completely died by then.

Hell yes!

Alien Swarm was one of my favorite UT2004 mods. I would have paid for this, but instead it's free.

It would seem that Valve's plans for world domination are proceeding as planned.

Everyone should get Beat Hazard.

Agreed. I picked it up during the sale and I'm having a ton of fun with it.

It takes a lot of skill to play. Be sure to play on Insane when you unlock it. The game gets super fun at that point.

It's funny that you mention that, since I started playing on Insane yesterday. Getting the daredevil bonus becomes a lot harder.

Every time I read one of their articles I want this game even more. I'm tempted to load up Guild Wars just for memories sake.

Best deal! Should be on the list.

Damnit, I don't need any more games! The demo sucked me right in, that's another purchase.

Too many sci-fi games to pass up. Purchased some. Wife is gonna kill me.
If my girlfriend knew just how many games I've bought on Steam in the last week...
My account is almost to the 230 games mark.

Stunned

Good god man! I thought my account was bad, and I'm probably going to crack the 100 game mark by the time the sale ends.

The DLC is on sale too. Now I just have to wade through this massive pile of games so that I can play it.

Are there any good Diablo-ish (read: clones) out there that are recent? I've been hungering for some good bash 'em and loot gameplay lately.

I've got Sacred and Sacred 2, Torchlight, Titan Quest Gold. What I really want is a warrior wielding a massive two-hander, but that's even more rare. *sigh*

I picked up Ghostbusters and the Serious Sam Pack. Overlord pack, Quantz, Trine and Space Rangers 2: Reboot yesterday.


Sure, I'd love a solid state primary drive. But where am I supposed to put all my games?! Damn you, Valve....

Yup, PC gaming must be dead. I've never, ever had such a massive backlog of awesome games to play.


Good lord, it's going to take me ages just to look through all the deals (and I will).

Tempted to buy Elemental while it's 15% off. I've avoided the preorder since I don't want to play a buggy beta, but the next batch is for Beta 3, so it may be getting stable by then. At least I hope so, since it's coming out soon.

Yeah, it's tough to pass it up for the 15% off. I still wouldn't participate in the beta testing because Stardock treats it as real beta testing, instead of just an early demo.

Why would anyone buy from Impulse with restrictions at every corner when stuff on Steam has no such restrictions? Instead of splitting your library over 2 services, you might as well wait for the next THQ Ultimate bundle sale on Steam and get all games proper.

One problem with that statement is that Steam is required to run any game purchased through the system; Impulse is only needed when you wish to download or update the game.

I use both services depending on the price of a given game at any time. I'm not picky.

Edit: Tag fix
