Mod makers selling their game for money! The Ship, Red Orchestra... both mods, now standalone games sold on the cheap. That's cool!

What exactly is so good about that? I though free mods were supposed to be free. Did I miss something?

yes, Gods and Xenon 1/2.

I'm hoping they will remake Xenon in 3D, this is a much better title for a 3d conversion.

Sorry, I really liked Sam & Max Hit The Road but I will never buy this before I can playtest the game.

No demo, no buy

I don't care about this new pricing system, all of my servers already include the following line in their startup config files:

mp_dynamicpricing 0

What's a "stewertess"?

Anyway, I don't want the Sims on board, I would like to play games like CS:S during flight... against other passengers

So would be great!

Who cares about FarCry 2 or FEAR 2? I want Condemned 2 and quickly.

That was an intense, great-looking, atmospheric Silent Hill action clone on steroids, inspired by the movie Saw.

That last level and final showdown still amazes me when I think of it, wow

...then you will suffer even more this time..camera is horrible

agreed but the rest of the gaming aspect is just fine if not perfect for an adventure game. Great story, characters and puzzles. What do you want more?

I just started playing "Secret files: Tunguska" and it seems to be an excellent adventure game. Why are so many great adventure games released after the genre has been said as being dead (Longuest Journey, Grim Fandango, Syberia, Black Mirror, Still Life, Broken Sword) when no one apparently is buying them...

Just picked up Advent from gogamer for like $5.90...

yeah well, Psychonauts is also available at amazon for 10 bucks less than on Steam but hey, Valve is just trying to get money to pay the costs of all their content servers or aren't they? The bandwidth of content servers is of course like everybody knows much more expensive than boxes, cds and shipping costs.

I really hope that Advent Rising will be a success on Steam so we might get the sequels of the trilogy.

Advent Rising is definitely one the most story-driven action-adventure games of the last few years. Nice graphics, excellent music, beautiful alien-world settings but above all a blast to play.

Nice to hear that Psychonauts will also get a new chance to show gamers what they have been missing in games for several years now: Originality and insane creativity.

I heard the story is the main problem with this game. Puzzles and ambience is said to be really nice but the story is lacking...

You could be one of the first to get into the demo of the most-anticipated game of 2006

Again, who decides what game will be the most anticipated game of whatever year, because BF2142 is certainly not on my "to-buy" list.

29. Re: Purchased CE; cannot install Jul 11, 2006, 16:29 vacs
 
I was able to copy the files from the DVD to the destination directory on my HD. The game runs now and I didn't have to use the Setup at all.

Good to hear that, my first guess actually was there might be data corruption on your DVD and therefore the installer fails.

Fortunately all of the ID engine based games can be copied manually from the CD/DVD to the harddisk. This "feature" is actually meant for linux installations so they don't need to include a seperate installer but it also can help in other situations... like yours

Error number: 0x80040703
Description: Failed to Find DLL function: CDkey.GetCDKey
Setup will now terminate.


The problem is obvious. You've entered the CDkey but bought the DVD version. Insert the DVDKey to continue the installation process.

ppl are writing...

Yeah, people are writing that you downloaded the illegal pre-release version of Prey and that you are not fair enough to admit it.

Of course you only read in a warez forum that something special will happen after the credits but you only read those warez threads because you are not really interested in pirated copies.

... and I can read.

Congratulations for this amazing achievement! You're now officially a level 2 bluesnews' poster (98 more levels to go).


Anyway, I really hope that the rest of the game offers the same quality than the whole demo. The game looks very promising so far... even the multiplayer.

4. Bill Gates has failed? Jul 2, 2006, 21:00 vacs
 
Only a jackass could believe that. I'm certainly not one of MS biggest fanboys, but stating that Bill failed because out of the 100+ important technology inventions he was directly responsible of, only 1 or 2 failed, is indeed fricking stupid.

Most people don't realize where we would be nowadays if MS didn't exist. Sure, Linux is god concerning servers but when talking about desktops or 85% of the market, there is no other reasonable solution than Windows eventhough Windows has many faults.
