Source isn't even a completely new engine. There are bits and pieces from the Half life 1 engine still there. I doubt HL3 (whenever it comes out) will be a completely new engine even if they end up calling it one. There's probably not a lot of benefit to starting from scratch.

Amazon has a few really good deals going on right now:

Mafia 2 - $12.50
ArmA2: Combined Operations - $12.50
S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Call of Pripyat - $5.00

All of those are the cheapest I've seen yet.

That Mafia 2 purchase activates on steam (I just tried it). Very good deal!

Where are the amazing Steam sales this Christmas? I've been less than impressed with Steam this year so far!

Those are always after christmas, usually starting the day after i think.

Evidently the 9.99 price was a mistake. I purchased it at 9.99 and got to keep it :}

Also according to the steam forums the expansion was playable for an hour or so after it went up for sale. Wasn't able to verify it myself.

Age of Empires Online is not F2P.


Oops, i thought i read that somewhere. Sorry for spreading misinformation!


Actually according to shack news it will have "Free to play Experiences" http://www.shacknews.com/onearticle.x/65157

So i guess it's not quite clear.

Recommiting with 2 new pc games? one being an online-only Free to play game and the other being flight simulator (which i wouldn't even consider a game although that could be debated).

Come on.

You must be thinking of the original Day of Defeat (non-source). Day of Defeat: Source has only been around for ~5 years. Less time than Counter Strike source and Half-life 2.

Does the game actually have to RUN successfully to give you the earbuds?

All I had to do was start the game (but not an actual match). My macbook couldn't even render the main screen correctly (would do some weird flickering thing), but I got the earbuds.

Are you kidding me? Its the most expensive rent ever! And U$S 59 its a lot of money for a episodic game.

Yep, you're right. They should cancel those 2nd two games and then it wouldn't be episodic and thus would totally be worth $60

Just purchased Metro 33 on Steam. $49.99
I have 15mb internet speed. No problems with my rig or connection. It's been over and hour and it's still downloading. I'm at 50%.

My connection is maxed out most times when i try (granted I usually am not downloading at peak times) and I have a 12 MB connection.

I've never found the multiplayer to be that enjoyable, $60 is way too much for a short single player game - especially since it only includes one of the three factions.


Starcraft 2 has 30 missions. the original Starcraft had 30 missions. What makes it short?

If there were 3 factions of 10 missions each (which is what the original had), would you be ok with it?

"The first game sucked!" ass as the kids would say. It takes more than profanity and violence to make a game good. Right?

Might have happened before, but this is the first time I've noticed that not a single valve game has appeared on the top ten.

World of Warcraft is on D2D, so it's not completely out of the question.

My original starcraft disc did NOT include a mac version I'm 99% sure. The Starcraft battlechest version did.

yeah, if vgcharts is to be trusted (no real idea of how accurate that information really is) then the list seems awfully wrong. According to vgcharts nintendogs and New Super mario bros (ds) both sold around (or more) than Mario Kart Wii.

Well it sounded like when you buy mass effect 2 you get codes for some DLC for free. So that said I'm not surprised if this was true.
