When it's 75% off on Steam, please let me know. In the meantime I picked this up earlier this year for $20.

This is probably a word to the wise, and I don't think even applies to the original BG1, anyway...but just in case you aren't aware of it--as I wasn't initially--when Amazon game descriptions say "Win7 compatible" in the description, what they are usually always talking about with much older games is "Win 7 x86" compatible, because these are 16-bit Windows games that will run fine on Win7 x86 but *won't run at all--won't even install* on Win7 x64 systems.

All eight games run flawlessly on my installation of Windows 7 64-bit.

EDIT: Just for clarification: They INSTALL and RUN flawlessly on Win 7 64-bit. No need for compatibility modes or anything else to install or run them.

News Comments > Black Ops II Patch Increases FOV
22. Re: Black Ops II Patch Increases FOV Nov 23, 2012, 00:09 RaZ0r!
 
Yeah I proclaim myself old school, but the multiplayer is outstanding.

The killstreaks are now scorestreaks and much toned down from previous games. The sprinting knifers are not near as viable as before. While the game is set in the future, it's very subtle and not way overboard in my opinion. They way you unlock weapons and the variety of weapons and add-ons are stellar.

The DX11 graphics are subtle but top notch, and with TSAA filtering there is no weird shimmering or anything while you are running making it very easy to see. It does make things look a tad soft, but it's good compromise in my eyes. The 5.1 sound is outstanding, by far the best of any CoD title.

The input control is very smooth. I'm not sure what they are doing input-wise, but it's seems they looked at it. I run vsync and triple buffering and I notice really no input lag at all with my DeathAdder. I also have yet to run into a 'bad host' game that is lagging. Maybe they don't have players host any more I'm not sure.

It's no Counter-Strike or Red Orchestra 2, but it's a lot of fun, really.

Did anyone ever pay full price for the original game? This doesn't seem to be the best choice for a sequel methinks.

I don't buy console versions because I don't own any consoles. While there is a little cross-over nowadays with PC, generally the games I want to play are not on console. They are on PC. So I don't invest in console.

If games die on PC (and I mean any personal computers and or operating systems) I won't be moving to console. I'll probably just go outside and stuff then.

Yeah I threw money at him. If for nothing else than the hours and hours of playing Wing Commander in DOS. (With a special boot disk no less.)

I believe the size increase is due to the fact that these are international drivers with support for all languages supported by Windows included.

Their first RTS game APOX got really bad reviews so I never picked it up. I'm curious to see how this one turns out.

Developers site also has Linux and Macintosh versions.

On Steam you get both the Macintosh and Windows version when you buy it. Probably won't see the Linux version on Steam until the Steam client is released for Linux. (Which is soon, umm in Valve Time)

I'm all for the release of this

Me too. It's a very nice update to CS for $15 bucks, and it seems it's had a good amount of testing. Check it:

So many IP zombies walking around these days...it's fucking disgusting.

What an awesome way to put it. IP zombies. Like Metal of Honor, Call of Duty, Dungeon Siege, Flashpoint, etc. Sad.

I forgot about the reaper bot, good call. Also the Omicron bot was pretty good too if I remember correctly.

I've owned and played every Battlefield PC game except BF3 since it's not on Steam, and every Call of Duty PC game. (The first Medal of Honor too!) The one thing they all have in common for me is I have never touched the single-player in any of them.

I'm glad they put it in there for the people that want it, but it does nothing for me. I'd much rather go up against real people then a lame scripted AI anytime. I think AI has a long way to go for shooters, that or they don't put enough effort into it.

I will say though, the bots in the original Unreal Tournament were not too bad. It was actually enjoyable firing up a bot match on UT.
