I noticed that XCOM pre-orders unlocked Civ 5 recently. I haven't pre-ordered it myself, but I'm happy for everyone who hasn't played Civ5 yet!

"Hard Drive Space: 17 GB"

That's 34 times larger than the Windows XP operating system!!

Can you say "unoptimised, lazy console port?"

You're comparing the size of a AAA game released today to a bare-bones (content wise) operating system released more than 10 years ago?

Then you compare the size of the game to how much compressed video you could store in that same space. FYI, 16 GB gives you something like 30 minutes of 1080p video if you want to do a semi-accurate comparison.

I'd suggest you just get used to the fact that your awesome PC is going to be obsolete after a few years. Or forget about playing modern PC games, console port or not.

Calling someone the "Luckiest Man on Earth" is almost tempting fate invitation to kill them somehow else. Amazing video, though.

MS should just remove IE and have no installed browser for EU residents. Maybe put a message in there that says call your government representative or figure out how to otherwise install a browser.

I don't see why they are waiting so long to go fully F2P.

My understanding is that it's not as simple as flipping a switch. There are lots of changes needed to make the game to support the F2P model that can't happen over night.

Oh well, there's plenty of other games to play until this comes out.

I still can't understand the sales of Arma 2. Is it still all about the mod or are people actually buying it based on interest in the core game?

The graphics don't look bad to me, just simple. The whole game looks a little simple, but that doesn't mean it won't be fun for a while. Simple isn't bad when when the game is cheap.

I'm sure this has been said before, but they should have split Windows 8 into desktop and tablet editions. I kind of want to upgrade to Win8 to get the core OS changes, but I don't think it's worth the UI headache. I'll probably just wait for Win9.

This is the first I've heard about it, but FTL looks like great fun. I hope it sells well and the developers support it, expand it and/or work on a sequel because the premise has limitless potential.

Feel good councilors don't cut it for childhood depression- it's a physiological problem that can't be talked through

The worst is church counselors: "you need to pray more."

I agree that the dark souls port is very good. It's exactly the same game as the consoles got, plus the extra DLC, for less money. The only problem with port was the resolution and that has been fixed with the mod (version .4 fixes the Depth of Field resolution). I can't comment on mouse/keyboard control as I am not stupid enough to try that.

W:EE is not CM, but it's not arcade garbage. They're completely different games.

The difference between D3 and ME3 to me is that I will eventually buy ME3. I have little interest in D3: the gameplay, the story or the DRM. I did enjoy the series when I was a kid, but I'm looking for more to games these days.

I get enough regular headaches just watching regular TV.

I used to get headaches playing regular PC games, but it turns out I just needed glasses. I don't suffer from migraines, however.

The neat thing is I'm experiencing a 20% boost in downstream bandwidth following the new modem and wire repairs.

A similar thing happened to me with some repairs on my DSL line last month. I had an downstream increase of about 80% in addition to no more connectivity issues.

I wonder if they localized the soldiers to be Chinese fighting evil Americans.

Or Chinese soldiers fighting protesting students and other dissidents.

Wow. I am the opposite of blown away. I am unblown here.

What the hell were you expecting? This, like the UE4 demo, isn't for gamers and probably shouldn't even be posted here.
