Just updated. My installed list is currently 38 games deep. Company of Heroes Opposing Fronts and Tales of Valor both started updating, CoD:MW2 seems to be re-downloading from scratch.

Probably one of the slickest, best produced games I've played in recent memory.

The art direction, attention to detail, writing, voice acting....everything is so beyond what most other dev studios are capable of nowadays that it'll be hard to go back to other games that I have on deck.

Agreed. After I get through my gaming backlog (damn Steam holiday sales...) I'll go back and take ForgedReality's advice. I played through ME1 as a Vanguard taking the Paragon path and I'm doing the same thing through ME2. I might start fresh from ME1 and take the Renegade path as a Sentinel through both games.

I suppose that's my high mark for a game; when I'm already thinking about the next play through before I've finished the first one.

One month after release, and no fix for the "get stuck in the air" bug... Grrr.

Creston

That one only hit me during the side mission with the transport thats ready to fall off of the cliff. Unfortunately, it repeated frequently. I had to restart at least a dozen times before I completed it. Other than that the game has been rock solid for me, and I'm loving it. I'm still working my way through, slowly.

I've always felt the WoT universe was vastly superior to the books themselves. I've never played anything using RJ's IP; It'll be interesting to see what can be done with it.

I think I was one of the few people that really enjoyed the 3D incarnations of Worms. Worms 4: Mayhem in particular was a blast--I used to play it quite a bit online.

I remember playing the demo for this ages ago. I loved it, but somehow never picked the game up. Glad I can finally change that.

I remember being interested in this game when it was first announced, but it seems to have fallen off of my radar since then. Now it's about to be released. I guess I'll have to dig around for opinions on it.

I'm not getting it until I hear some good Blue's poster reviews but I'm definitely considering it.

Skipping MW2 has really left me itching for a new PCMPFPS.

Me too. It's even worse now that I've just come back from a friends house where I played MW2 for a couple of hours. It was the first time I'd ever used the PS3, and I've gotta say I still hate console controllers for shooters.

If they add dedicated servers, I'll buy MW2. If not, no sale. *sigh*

And with that, Chrome becomes my default browser. I just intend to never, ever think about just how much Google knows about me.

Uhm, these are forums -- can you explain what you mean by "were to add forums"?
Sorry, just saw it linked to at the bottom of the Popular Threads column and didn't pay attention to the separator. I just meant conventional forums rather than like the comments section; like one of the traditional pre-fab types like vBulletin - something that could be added as a separate entity. These forums just don't really strike me as being like... forums.

It's also not really worth putting the effort in if a new and improved forum system doesn't see any usage. I see this as a way of testing the waters, and so far it's proven to be very quiet.

Where are people having issues? I personally don't get many, sometimes games are buggy, but that's a fault of the developer/hardware vendor usually (ie patch fixes it, or driver update) which is generally automatic these days.


I can remember the days of beating my head against a wall to make a game work right (or at all), but I've rarely had an issue in the last few years of gaming. As for the rare issue I do have, well, I simply consider that the price I pay for playing on a superior platform.

It looks like I'll be picking up RA3 then. I've always been a fan of the series.

I know many people who've been waiting for ME for $5, so I'm sure they're selling a crazy number of copies right now.

Hell, I'm tempted to pick it up at that price and I have a boxed copy.

I think Steam is finally cracking under the strain. Tried to buy Mass Effect for $5 and I'm just sitting here looking at a "Working...." button. Steam has broke before under launches, but never bad enough where they still couldn't take my money...

*update: They charged my account, so I'm sure they're just being hammered. Oh well, back to more CivIV

That happened to me yesterday when I picked up the Crysis pack about 30 minutes after it went on sale. I ended up getting a credit card declined notice (after about 10 minutes). I just waited an hour, tried it again and all was well.

The Steam front page currently has the top twenty listed, and it does seem to be updating more often. I don't think it's broken, I think they just increased the refresh rate on the list because of the holiday sales.

Most likely. That Top 20 has been all over the place, depending on the days sales. Shame the last few days haven't had anything I'm interested in.

God damn, I just got Torchlight the other day for $10 from Steam. That's not cool, but at least I'm only getting screwed out of $5 and not $25 or some shit.

I bought it for $20 and it's been worth every penny. Paying anything less is a steal, no doubt about it. It's also nice to finally see digital distribution paying off in terms of game cost; while it may not have improved initial retail price it's certainly helped over the long term.
