Man, you can just go through the entire game holding a vending machine on that difficulty, huh?

No --> , there is a way to not be kill-on-sight in the police station if you talk to the guy (he was a former Sarif security employee) at the reception desk the right way.

Also, failing a hack will still make the console beep and aggro nearby guards even with boxes blocking the view.

There was a badass google doodle on the google.co.uk page today for Freddie Mercury's b-day. I tried to find it in google's logo database but it's not there yet. There a video of it on this page and more info though:

Uggh, I was just commenting yesterday on here about the chore it is playing this game given how much UI's have advanced. Too much clicking but I'm still tempted to have it in my GoG bookcase

Games are quite complex these days and I can imagine the destructible assets in BF3 aren't easy to implement, let alone document. This isn't 1996 where some guy can hack together a level editor for the latest FPS. (I'm thinking of the old Outlaws Lawmaker editor.)

Such a awesome game, I remember playing this on my c64 20 something years ago, started my love affair of CRPGs.

Same here. I also loved Bard's Tale 1&2 on my C64.

I've still got the original Ultima IV C64 box with cloth map and the little ankh knick knack they included.

I'm pleasantly surprised by how well it runs.

Yeah Tumbler, I was going to upgrade my video card so I could have all the tesselation, etc. but it ran so smooth I decided to put that off a few more months or so.

It's sad that we are so used to unoptimized console ports that when a developer releases something actually optimized for PC it's a surprise

I've been meaning to fire up Just Cause 2 in casual difficulty to mess around. I love that game engine. I bought all the DLC back in December in a STEAM sale and haven't even played it.

I've resigned to not play retro games anymore until I get amnesia that makes me forget how much user interfaces have evolved in the last 20 years. Believe me, I would love to play the original populous but after five minutes my carpal tunnels are like wtf is this???

Saw that link a few weeks ago. The Adam West floor is still the best lol. Lots of other clever ones though.

Re: Tron legacy: I was never a big fan of Tron but Tron legacy was a good sci-fi popcorn movie. And there's really not enough decent sci-fi movies anyway...

Elevator Action is a classic arcade game but the screenshots of this 3d remake for the PS3 looks like something from a 1997 3dfx voodoo game...

I didn't play a WC game until privateer but spent countless hours in college playing that and x-wing/tie fighter. I even got the speech pack and expansion for privateer

This cartoon shows one of the main reasons I will never own an apple device.

I never really cared for Steve Jobs the businessman but don't wish cancer on anyone...well, maybe Kotick if I had to choose a person.

Jobs did pretty much legitimize the music download business I guess: even though it was wrapped in a pretty drm turd, non-literate computer people ate it up - finally they could get their musicz on their ipodz.

I'm still shopping around online for a new video card and noticed most of the Radeon 6950's on Newegg have DXHR included now instead of Dirt3

I've played the first "intro/level" and love it so far. Wish I could play more but I have to evacuate thanks to hurricane Irene. It doesn't look like where I am in the Bahamas (Andros island) will get a direct hit, at least right now it doesn't look that way...

Honestly, even if I had any interest in this game (which I don't), just the fact that it's published by UBI gave me reason to ignore it. I don't buy anything from that company any more because supporting their DRM gives it legitimacy leading other publishers to think it's OK to use something similar.

GMG purchasers will have to wait until release to start downloading. From a post on their forums:

If you try to add your copy of Deus Ex: Human Revolution to Steam before release day, you will see an error stating that you already own this product. Please ignore this error and keep hold of your key.

Oh God....thanks for that mental picture lol.
