LOL.. amazing. Great sense of humor, and "humor is the great healer." Makes you wonder what the hell they are teaching their children about Soviet history in the former USSR.

Nice coincidence with deportation of SS concentration camp guard Josias Klumpf from Wisconsin earlier today. Looking forward to taking on a virtual version of the fascists in-game.

Kosumo, all you have to leech is the client, which rocks in at around 100KB.

http://www.guildwars.com/support/downloadclient/

It will then download game content in the background, and as you enter new areas, which can sometimes be slow but is very convenient.

Using this method I reinstalled GW earlier this week after over a year of inactivity, without using any of my original game discs (hell if I know where they are anymore). Just had to remember my account email and password.

Guild Wars has always been very generous and flexible using this method. Still fun after all these years, and plenty of people still playing. Can't ask for much more for a one time $50 payment that I made in 2005.

Just bit the bullet, was waiting for a sale just like this.

In a nice coincidence, I watched the Romero 68-85 trilogy during this week for the first time. Classics, no idea how I could have overlooked them before.

Downloading... see some of you online!

Then why did it have tons of various mouse issues? For me the game was 100% unplayable without massive fiddling with the mouse config settings and custom binding of a key (the only way to enforce said settings as they had to be reapplied constantly). I was certainly not the only one with either a Razer or a high dpi mouse to try and play the game. Even their own fucking artists should have been using high dpi mice.

I completely agree. The controls and bindings in BioShock were a complete nightmare, particularly for (the admittedly very few) left-handed gamers like me. Hard-coded left and right clicking, regardless of your windows settings. It was also an unstable POS on every box I played it on. It didn't help that it would idiotically reset all your custom config files every time the game crashed. Eventually I resorted to writing a little 1990's-style batchfile that would copy/rename them for me. This was a decent and entertaining game but nowhere near the epitome of PC gaming perfection that some people like to maintain.

Saw multiple copies of this game on sale at Best Buy here, for full price, about an hour ago. Would be such a shame if someone unaware actually bought one.

Their latest interview, once again, made me lol. It's come to the point where I'm looking forward to more interviews with them than the actual RTS game. Hope Dreamlore can inject their entertaining sense of humor into the game itself.

I tried the demo and was like "WTF." Its somewhat fun, but consists of extremely simplistic gameplay. It could benefit from a mouse sensitivity customization setting.

These guys need to lay off the Angel Dust (or just save it up for their next Infinite Space/Wierd Worlds game.. I can't wait).

Wow that's definitely cheap. If you've never played it - make sure it's patched to 1.0005, install Oblivion Lost 2.1.1, and you're in for an amazing and unprecedented budget gaming experience.

This game seems to be getting better and better with the patches. I never played Sacred 1 but will look to pick this one up when the price comes down slightly. Titan Quest: Immortal Throne is still keeping me busy.

Firing 70% of your North American staff, primarily in Customer Service - the very component that most of your customer base says is gravely lacking - has nothing to do with business-as-usual. That they feel the need to use defensive language and bother to justify their staff cuts is doing nothing but support the increased scrutiny and subsequent negative stigmatization. Maybe its obvious that engaging reactionary "Rumour Control" is only for the insecure and those with actually no control.

Time to placate all the panicking investors.

Mosby was actually only a Colonel (albeit a full one) in the Confederate Army, not a General.

I'm looking forward to trying this game out. All of $20 US on Steam, but a demo, although it's probably too much to ask, would still be appreciated.

WHAT?!?!?!?! It doesn't include *any* fixes for the zillions of single player crashes????

uhm, skyguy, it looks like you're reading the patch notes for Shadow of Chernobyl 1.0006, which is a multiplayer-only patch for a different game.

Glad to see that STALKER: CS is selling relatively well in the States, despite apparently little marketing. And yeah, Crysis too.

EA has bought every available advertising space in my metro station (Harvard Sq in Boston), including the floors and ceilings, and plastered it with Spore adverts. They've been up there for weeks and the Spore-themed station never ceases to revolt me. Obviously they had a huge budget for marketing it. Too bad they can't buy reviews on Amazon.com

We've regressed.. the original Shadow of Chernobyl North American DVD has no copy protection at all as far as I remember.
