You should just upgrade to Windows 7 instead.

You should just upgrade to Nvidia instead.

Heroes 6 was potentially as good as 3, but instead if felt way, way more like a never ending grind fest. I couldn't put my finger on it... it just never lived up to it's potential.

Nvidia's shadows play is free if you have a Geforce card.

Thanks for that mini-review Axis. I loved World of Xeen so much, but still enjoyed 6 & 7, so I was curious to see how this would turn out. Too bad uPlay is intertwined with the Steam version.

Translation: We will make sure the fan runs at "bone saw setting" at all times because we are pushing this chip as hard as we can to compete with GK110 and we didn't put any effort into the cooling system.

So instead of Half Life 3 we continually get crap like this instead.

Yes, you nailed it. The game programmers are creating Steam trading card systems instead of programming games. MYSTERY SOLVED.

I was so excited when this came to PC. I played it and thought it was great. Then I played it some more, and it got a little repetitive but I still liked it. And then it got extremely repetitive... and I stopped playing.

I could care less. What I want is the ability to sort and search through my games library better. Like showing me all co-op ones.

Steam has them all marked as such in the individual store page, its just not very interesting to code some UI work to actually use that info.

Really? So you care just enough or too much for this new feature?

News Comments > Gearbox TMs "Shift" - Has Steamy Plans?
3. Re: Gearbox TMs Jun 26, 2012, 10:57 tony
 
They have nothing to bring to the table. EA at least owns many, many developer houses. Gearbox releases a game less often than Valve does and, as it has already been pointed out, their games aren't exactly instant classics like Vavle games.

Nothing to see here, move on.

Nope. They released those two packs at the same time they did the GotY edition, only full price, which is the reason I didn't buy them then.

I was waiting for a complete definitive edition, but I guess everything at 75% is good enough.

Still, I feel a bit bad. We were promised PBEM play and it's still not supported

Do you mean pitboss? PBEM can be setup manually to be fairly easy. Just create a shortcut on your desktop to the saves folder, and email it to whomever after you take your turn.

Don't tell Ubisoft. I still don't want their DRM laced console ports coming, even if there is money to make.

I really wasn't impressed with Civ5. Civ3 and 4 are still my favorites, speaking of which I think I'll go play some.

I was a vocally really against Civ V during it's first few months. The last few patches brought about some good balances, though. It's ultimately going to have trade off's with Civ IV - no research manipulation, no individual city management, and a hard limit of 1upt being the biggest drawbacks - but honestly, as much as I was looking forward to this game and then was initially against what I thought were big steps backwards, it has come into it's own.

I hope the expansion puts it on the same level as Civ 4:BTS

I have never heard of this game until now, but for being free it looks really well done.

They should have made a $1 minimum from the start. The transaction fees make anything less than a ~30 cent contribution a loss. I imagine there are more people who give less than 25 cents than there are people who give between 26 and 99 cents, so cutting those extremely cheap transactions out will probably save money.

Its rare to see AI improvements to games nowadays. Glad they are still improving the game.

I'd probably pick this up on a decent sale. But does it have ubi's always on DRM crap? Having that in the latest settlers game annoyed me. Even a year+ after release, it was still stopping me from playing when ubi's servers went down.

yes it does. You an start a game offline, but you won't get access to the relic artifacts you can carry through the entire campaign. AND, if you start a game while you are connected, and it disconnects, it will boot you out of the game without saving it.
