Shadowrun for 99 cents is a no-brainer.

It is one of the best squad based MP shooters ever made.

To bad people got hung up on the name.

I disagree - I wouldn't play that game for free....

Is anyone even playing Shadowrun anymore? What good is a multiplayer game when there's no "multi"?

Anyway, it wasn't the name that prevented me from buying it - it was the Vista exclusivity.

oh Yeah, I forgot about that one. Had it been a bit less onerous like it is now it wouldn't have been too bad. A lot of games require STEAM to run nowadays but they make it so low-key that you don't even give it a second thought.

IMO, MS should simply bite the bullet and make it a free title. It seems such a waste of a great game to have it shelved.

Yeah. The Longest Journey is a fucking classic. The graphics aren't THAT terrible, and it's got one of the best stories ever for a game. Seriously.

DA:O is the only game I'm interested in the holiday. Hopefully will come up on a good Steam sale. Possibly BFBC2 Vietnam.

Is the DA:O expansion pack worth picking up for $7.50? Does it add anything worthwhile to the game?

If you enjoyed DAO, you'll probably enjoy Awakening. It's only 15-20 hours long, has much less developed companions and is ridiculously easy, but for $8 it's worth a go.

The EA Store is having a buy 2 (or more) and get 50% off sale. Their latest releases are excluded though.

Is the DA:O expansion pack worth picking up for $7.50? Does it add anything worthwhile to the game?

What about Bad Company 2, is the SP only portion worth playing?

Didn't we get it to work on XP?

I've played it but not on this machine, my last one was XP.

Oh, there was a hack I'm sure, but unless it's really something I'm dying to play I generally won't go through the trouble.

I don't care if it is 99 cents. I refuse to play any multi-platform game that forces my aiming to be sloppy because mouse/keyboard is unfair to console players.

edit: Does the MP exist at all anymore?
On January 7, 2008, it was announced that the dedicated servers hosted by Microsoft for PC users would be available until at least the beginning of February 2008, at which time plans for their future support would be evaluated.

I didn't play TLJ until 2004 or so.

When the other greats of the genre are mostly from the late eighties to mid nineties it doesn't look so bad.

Sanitarium and The Longest Journey are great adventure games. The graphics are pretty bad (especially Longest Journey's) but the stories are great.
