I'm going to give Windows 8 another chance after reading Scott Hanselman's blog posts.

He really makes a good case for being somewhat productive on it.

Since IT support is my career, I'll probably do the $40 Win8 upgrade thing just to have it around so I can learn any new tech in it. I have no desire to use it daily though.

Today (Sunday) is the final day of Ubisoft's download store sale, and you can get Driver: San Francisco Deluxe Edition for only a dollar! All versions of the game have the same UPlay DRM so paying more for the game elsewhere like on Steam doesn't allow you to avoid UPlay.

This is a terrific value, and for $1 you can't go wrong. You can buy the game using the website link without installing the UPlay client.

It's not worth it for crappy UBI DRM. Thanks though.

I would like to think the inevitable Diablo 3 expansion will be a terrible failure but some people just buy Blizzard games no matter what so they'll get their 5 million sales again. Sheeple...

I was into W:EE for a few weeks but it just got so tedious and finishing a mission was more of a "wow, I finally won after 4 restarts" thing instead of a "wow, that was a fun 30 minutes playing" experience. I might still get this expansion if it's reasonably priced and I can try a demo first though.

I don't miss the stupid long loading times on my C64 disk drive watching the EA logo flashing...and that was with a fastload cartridge

Playing my first game on it, Dr. J vs. Larry Bird, was awesome though lol

He also said what's hidden inside the cube will be "so valuable, and so life-changingly important."

I'm guessing it's a golden condom...you heard it here first.

News Comments > Wargame - European Escalation Free DLC
3. Re: Wargame - European Escalation Free DLC Jul 5, 2012, 14:05 Shok
 
I played through a few single player missions in the campaign but never multiplayer. I got a bit frustrated after the 3rd or 4th mission though and never got back to it. I'm hopeful the DLC and patch helps the difficulty. I emailed Blue patch notes the other day but he didn't post (probably since it was from an unconfirmed message board post):
