will be getting on the pc, and will be happy that its counting to my gamerscore on my xbox.

I've never really understood the draw of gamerscore. It's not like a points system on a FPS server for example because the scales aren't weighted fairly, one person might be 1000 points above because they bought Barbie Funhouse for the cheevos. What do people get out of it, just bragging rights or something? I've tried asking my friends but they can't even articulate it beyond they like seeing numbers increment.

I like to compare my score to my friends, especially on games we both played. I could care less about the overall score as there are people out there who's whole entire lives are dedicated to getting 6,000,000 GS. Also its fun to try to unlock all the achievements for a game you really like, for example, the Mass Effect series.

There are a few games I have bought on PC and then on Xbox, just for getting achievements, Alpha Protocol comes to mind.

Its like having a goal and then reaching it. Don't you feel some sort of satisfaction when you have reached a goal that you have set for yourself?

I never have any problems with GFWL. I log in using my Xbox live ID and done. It takes about 5 seconds. I still play Dirt 2 all the time on it. Batman AA ran just fine for me through it and even tracked PC achievements and added them to my Xbox live account. GOTY actually counts as a separate game, so I have all the BAA achievements twice.

And why would you play this on a console when its going to look so much better on a PC. You'd rather play a shitty looking game with a controller than log in to GFWL? I say you are full of it.

Well, I hid it last time but people don't seem to care.

Boss fights can be cheesed. Its called Typhoon.

And if you want to make it REAL easy, cloak and then typhoon.

I'm a pretty thorough player, but I feel like I only clocked about 25 hours... which is pretty decent, but whenever I play a great game like this, I always want more, more, more. I was hoping it would take the 35-40 hours I was hearing that more thorough players could look forward to.

I've seen this in several places, one guy who said he finished it in 15 hours, and I don't know what people are doing to get through so fast. I'm 33 hours in and I just went back to China. I have almost every single augment completely unlocked 51 Praxis points to this point. 26/49 achievements so far, on PC version.

Do you want to unlock the Lucky Guess Achievement?

SPOILER:

When you get to Jacob's bomb type in the code 0000 to disarm it. He's not very smart. Reminds me if the luggage combo in Space Balls. 1-2-3-4-5.

Going non-lethal, sneaky hacker... Have yet to kill anyone that isn't required, and sadly, can't take the 'bust through thin walls' upgrade for that reason (the one time I tried it, he script-killed a baddie : (

There is an augment to see through walls so you know which ones not to punch through.

The Merchant windows force us to use the Arrow keys instead of the mouse. It's obviously not as big a slap in the face as the boss fights (I've only had one forced) but still it stands out as one of the only places we are forced to use Arrow keys.

I'm not having any problems using the mouse in the merchants windows. Click on the arrows to move between categories and then scroll through the items with the mouse wheel.

Also its VERY easy to cheese the boss fights. SPOILER: Cloak and then TYPHOOOOOOOOON!!! You can 1 shot Barret. I shot Ylena a couple times before I typhooned her so not sure If I could have one shotted her or not.

Just drop the long distance service, that's what I did several years ago. 95% of the time I need to call LD it's a toll free number anyway and there's VOIP for the rest.

I'm guessing you didn't even bother to read the article. They are charging for NOT having any long distance plan. Reading comprehension FTW.

This just in from CNN money

"Now, GameStop says it will not sell the opened DXHR packages -- in fact, it won't sell any physical copies of the game at all until Square Enix ships GameStop a version without the OnLive coupon. GameSpot will continue to sell its own digital version of the game in its stores and online."

I started playing around 12:15am, after the decrypt, and continued until 5am. I got through M3. Going stealth, hack, social. Saving Praxis points is torture.

Hacking totally reminds me of The Martix from Shadowrun, which is a good thing.

I don't know how many missions there are, but I think I'll get far more than 30 hours out of the story.

I haven't killed anyone yet and I have got the ghost bonus on every level so far. I changed cover mode to toggle. Its way easier than trying to hold the mouse button down for a minute. FOV to 90. Load times are not bad at all, but I do have a pretty good rig even though its 2 years old. My load times are far faster than I've seen in any videos.

Voice acting is great. Controls are great. You can tell its going to have good replayability. I'll take this as GOTY over Witcher 2, but Batman hasn't come out yet :).

I need to stop reading these reviews. They are making me jones. I'm going to try to sleep for a few hours before midnight so I can play as long as possible when its released. I'm on vacation for the rest of the week :). I've avoided all videos so far. I don't want to know ANYTHING before I play. I know a lot of people didn't like Alpha Protocol. I thought that game rocked. DEHR seems very similar to me.

12 hours and 15 minutes...

You'd think the TF2 items would be for pre-orders through steam... except when I put in my serial key to add in my deus ex pre-order, it said I was going to get the 8 TF2 items on the preload screen.

So like I said, can anyone confirm receiving the TF2 items with a preorder of any type? (such as through steam).

Because I'm going to complain to valve about not getting my promised items.

I did not get the TF2 items. I ordered from GMG. I did not expect to get them because the page clearly states pre-order the game on Steam to get the items. With the new inventory feature on Steam, I can see my friend who pre-ordered on Steam does have the TF2 items.

If you pre-order from Steam, yes. I've heard pre-orders from other sources can't put their keys into Steam yet and thus don't have the items.

You'd be wrong about that. All keys from other places are working for pre-load. The TF2 items are if you pre orderd on STEAM only, as far as I can tell.
