Game looks really good, but I share the concerns about a half-ass PC port. I really hope they don't fuck it up yet again.

Syndicate gameplay trailers look awesome, I dunno what you guys are talking about. Definitely looked like a buy to me.
What are you talking about? Looked scripted and gimmicky when they were trying to incorporate Syndicate-y stuff, and otherwise just another shooter.

I just want a modern remake of the original. Hopefully Cartel turns out to be that. I loved the original and played it and the expansion for a long time. I couldn't get into Syndicate Wars though. It just felt different and wrong, but I don't even remember why anymore.

I can't even imagine wanting to play Eve, especially with all the douchey things that CCP has done and things they let their employees and friends get away with. Why would anyone want to pay to deal with that? If I want to do something tedious for hours at a time, I'll just stay in the office.

News Comments > No Mass Effect 3 on Steam; Requires Origin
145. Re: No Mass Effect 3 on Steam; Requires Origin Jan 16, 2012, 17:42 Wowbagger_TIP
 
Meh. I'm not installing Origin. At least not until it's at least as bug-free and unobtrusive as Steam, and right now it's not even in the same hemisphere. It's tempting just for BF3, but really not worth it. There's plenty of other games out there and I don't have time for many of them anyway. As for ME3, I'll watch the cutscenes on Youtube and spare myself all the planet-scanning and repetitive chest-high-wall fights. That shit is just tedious.

Do the games I bought as gifts for others show up on my list? If not, that list should be twice as long or longer. Thank God and Superman that my wife doesn't pay close attention to the bank account that we make online purchases with.
Lucky you! I had to explain to my wife that my purchase of the latest Humble Indie Bundle was done out of pure, unadulterated altruism. It's for the children, really!! Ok, not entirely, but I did pay $25 for it, and that was before they added more stuff to it too. Oh, and I had a couple of the games already.

Holy shit, this is just bizarre. The guy is like some parody of a jock turned PR guy. Why not just hire one of the morons from Jersey Shore to represent you? Seriously, how does this guy even have a job? Blackmail is the only thing I can come up with.

what is this adult content?it 's a shooter not rpg.
are they talking about gory scenes?

Yep. From Gamestop:

UPDATE: The Classification Board has now released its decision report into Syndicate, which states that the game was indeed refused classification because of its high impact violence.

In its report, the Board cited several examples of high impact violence, including the fact that "combatants can take locational damage an can be explicitly dismembered, decapitated, or bisected by the force of the gunfire. The depictions are accompanied by copious bloodspray and injuries are shown realistically and with detail. Flesh and bone are often exposed while arterial sprays of blood continue to spurt from wounds at regular intervals."

"The game also allows a player to repeatedly damage enemy combatants' corpses. For example, it is possible for a player to decapitate a corpse with a headshot before individually blowing off each of its limbs."
Awesome deal for EA. The Classification Board just wrote their marketing material for them!

How many Steam Cheevos you guys have to Holiday Sale? I skipped a couple of games I am not interested in or that weren't a good price point. I am at 25.
I think I only have like 5 right now. Haven't been that interested in a lot of the games that I don't already have. Haven't done the Frozen Synapse one from today yet though. Wish they'd have some interesting ones from games that I already have, or at least that I want.

As I mentioned in previous comments see this thread for cheaper (50%+) deals than Steam's 33% on Saints Row 3.

Dude, thanks for that! I just picked it up from GMG for $20 using the FIFTY-SAINT-XMASS voucher code. Merry Xmas to me!

Oh, and it activates on Steam too, of course!

Where can I get wars dirt cheap? I really want to play this but I want to give EA the absolute minimum ammount of money. Im thinking under 5$.
I think I picked up Crysis, Crysis Warhead, and Crysis Wars together for around $5 during a Steam sale. Keep your eyes peeled during this holiday sale and maybe you can grab them that cheap again.

Their servers must be getting pounded. I'm getting errors and blank screens in the Steam app. Refreshing will sometimes fix it. Sometimes I just get another mostly blank screen.

A lot of enthusiasts run their systems to the limit and if their system doesnt crash and runs stable they automatically assume that everything works fine & dandy without looking at the fine points like CPU temperature and the like.
I think those are crazy people rather than enthusiasts. I try not to kill my processor when I overclock. Running that far outside of the safe temp range is a REALLY bad idea. There's a reason you don't overclock to the point that your cooling solution can't keep up, which is the instability you're likely to encounter, as you obviously found out. It isn't always immediately apparent. I don't know of any enthusiasts that would do that. They either back off on the overclock, or buy a better cooler.

Anyone have any idea where I can get the Win7-64 versions of the 12.1? I only find links to what I assume are the 32 bit versions...

Creston
The download page lists both Win 7 x32 and x64 as supported Operating systems. Seems like it should work for either?
