Trucks end up being sitting ducks for enemy units that sneak behind your line. Chinooks are way better.

Love this game, got distracted by some newer releases but I really have to go back. Who gives away DLC these days. Focus is the best!

It wasn't that long ago that McAfee was wanted for an alleged meth lab on his property. Not sure what happened to those allegations, but I think it's clear that the authorities in Belize are corrupt and would like to Nationalize John's assets. I'm not saying he did it, or not - just saying he isn't going to get an honest shake in a third world country and sensationalist headlines seem to be the norm with John McAfee.

That being said he cannot stay with me while he sorts out his troubles.

I don't put stock in any game featuring "HD" in the title. As if this were 2002.

I thought it was an iOS game with HD in there.

I've been waiting to buy this one anyhow, so of course I chipped in for the kick starter.

27. Re: Borderlands 2 Captain Scarlett DLC Next Week Oct 11, 2012, 12:36 McSterls
 
I love Borderlands 2, but to hell with this. Games been out three weeks and we have DLC coming out already, should have been included as part of the base game. Money grubbing bastards. Too many good games to play right now, I'll come back next year when this is on sale for 2 bucka and buy it.

Thus proving that 64bit is 1.38x better then 32bit.

217mb download for a driver install is kind of getting out of hand.
This driver is 175MB.

The 32-bit version is only 127MB.

I'm going to give it a try, but probably not until Spring. Too many AAA games this time of year.

News Comments > Notch Knocks Win8: Minecraft Certification in Doubt
14. Re: Notch Knocks Win8: Minecraft Certification in Doubt Sep 27, 2012, 11:11 McSterls
 
Pretty sure that certification is for Apps only, applications run as before. I tried the Win 8 preview and had no problems getting older software to run, including Minecraft.

That being said, the experience was underwhelming from an interface standpoint and and Stardock's Start 8(still in Beta) only half works to get rid of it. I won't be switching over to 8 anytime soon.

Today is also Black Mesa release day. Finally. Although, the links are all jammed and it hasn't appeared on Steam yet.

Triple A doesnt just refer to the production cost, it refers to the quality and robustness of their final product and the reception of that game. Based on these criteria Ubisoft hasn't made a AAA game in like ten years.

Just bought mine from Steam this morning, they are also offering a bonus copy of Bloody Good Time for free....which looks bloody horrible. Steam didn't notice this offer on their site.

I'm going to buy the Avernum Bundle and Grimrock.

I'll also pick up Endless Space if it hits 50% off.

Just tried Endless Space last week, try the demo first. I wish I hadn't picked it up - it's decent enough but doesn't draw you in like SoSe

I think so. Amazon had it for 50% off last week, but I'm counting on Steam matching that price.
