That game abused me horribly when it picked up a bug in the save game (despite all the precautions) on the ghoul rocket mission about 60 hours in.
I've never once run into that, and I've got 407 hours played according to steam. The only one that really got me was the one bug with veronica and "I could make you care" with her dialog not catching at key points.

Sad to see all the repeating sales. Hoping for a good Fallout New Vegas sale...!
Really? It was on sale for 75% off last month.

To be fair, going from 6 gigs of RAM to 14 gigs won't show any noticeable performance improvement in the vast majority of games. You only need that much memory if you do a lot of 3D modeling, video editing, etc. Replacing your regular HD with a SSD would actually show a greater performance improvement (in terms of load times mainly).

This pretty much is it. The only way you're going to see an increase as well with memory, is by tweaking and adjusting timings(cas, ras and so on) and by screwing with the timing clocks. And you're only going squeeze so much out of it anyway. We're pretty close to the end of the line for the current DDR3 standard for the desktop game, so what most people have a 3% difference isn't noticeable, hell a 5% difference isn't noticeable.

I'm just glad it got the attention it deserved. The Iranian gov't is horrible, but the people living under that regime have the potential to create a great country if they could get the right kind of govn't.
The population is unarmed, and the government is a theocracy with all the weapons. The chance of them being able to "create a great country" is next to impossible.

Remember, they beat, rape and imprison women for standing up for the rights of others. They hang gays for being gay, the religious police cane people in public as an example then send them on their way. And so on. And before someone gets the idea of saying "but look at Egypt" ... yeah look at Egypt, how's that new theocracy workin' out anyway? Worse than the old dictatorship isn't it. Much the way Syria is going.

Certainly not, but just like other forms of media and art it can be used to provoke discussion of social issues. Some people may not catch onto themes like these but they are there in a lot of the media we consume, Regardless of whether the author put them consciously or not.
I've got a great response to the elitist pricks who love to spout this crap in the dead tree media. Fuck off, I don't need their opinions on "omg hurt ponies, and need more shiny ponies."

Especially since Starcraft basically shows you how to mow down innocent little kids with an assault rifle.
Never mind that he didn't use the "assault rifle." Don't worry, I caught the sarcasm.

Perhaps they should be looking at the dismal state of the mental healthcare system instead.

720p?

even on next gen hardware, I thought they were going after 1080p res.

Hah no. Consoles holding consoles back, in turn holding back PC gaming.

Tablets won't kill off e-readers until they have the same battery life they do. Right now my kobo takes around 3 weeks before needing a charge, when I'm reading it for around 4-5 hours a day. My mom's vox has to be charged daily, and she's reading it for 5-7 hours, with most of the power hungry features turned off. Plus I find the e-ink much easier on the eyes.

That was in response to Frum's bout of crazy incase you missed it. The bodies weren't even cold and he was trying his very best to score political points.

Aren't all modern processors still compatible with the i386?

Creston
From what I understand, it's the compatibility between 8bit and 16bit registers that screw everything up, especially in the 32bit pipe.

29% of folks are running 1920x1080? =(

I'm still rocking 1280x1024 on my 4:3 and 1360x768 on my widescreen. Sounds like it's time for an upgrade.
The problem is that a lot of monitors these days especially in the 19-22" range, especially the cheap monitors cap out at 1360x768. Blargh, and if you're buying a PC instead of building one that's probably what you're going to get.

Play much better with the lights off, sound up and partially wasted(I prefer booze). Loved both games without a doubt, been awhile since I played something that actually scared me a few times.

No one cares about San Andreas and how would you deal with the timelines. What made Vice City the best GTA was the 80s theme. So unless the entire time period is 70s/80s it'll suck.
Really that's my feeling on all of it. I've played the entire GTA series and at the end I wasn't really impressed. Though I just finished SR3 off of recommendations of some folks here and damn if I didn't enjoy that a lot. That, was a blast.

Now off for some more super-ethical-murder-happy-funtime!

I haven't gotten the Steam survey popup in a while. My system hasn't had any major changes in a couple of years, so that may be why.
Got one two months ago, my machine hadn't had any changes in a few years. Since you're randomly selected good chance you simply weren't chosen.

Though I'm kinda surprised to see Win8 has almost 5% of the market already.

Win2k's a chunk, I'd bet.
That'd be my guess, there's still some hardcore people who are still hanging on to it. It was a hell of an OS for gaming through once you got it all up and running.

It would suck to be a retailer still holding onto these games in boxed product form.
Really, how many retailers actually sell PC games these days? Not many. Most sell console games, and pretend that the PC market doesn't exist anymore. Never mind that it'll outstrip all consoles by next year.
