Woohoo, I'm just glad to hear something about Thief 4, it was May 2009 since it was announced and then it all went a bit quiet so I was starting to get concerned.

love the series. I'm playing through the Cradle again right now.

I passed on SH too this week, along with Wings of Prey in the Steam sale that also had horrible restrictive DRM. Even when games are heavily discounted I still refuse to support this crap by paying for it.

I may pick up Far Cry 2 today though, I originally left it on the shelf because of the securom limited activation crap but the Steam version has it removed now (despite what it says on the store page).

I'm forcing myself not to buy anything now, I still have games from last years sale that I haven't even installed yet.

Bored here too, I took a break for a couple of weeks because of the problems with the PC version but I just can't get back into it now.

Maybe they will give PC owners the map pack for free as an apology for the appalling state the game was released in, and maybe monkeys will fly out of my butt.

I have problems with BC2 under Win 7 64 too, if I don't run it in XP compatibility mode it will CTD between almost every round, just at the point it starts to load the next map.

I still get this randomly even in XP mode and there are a good few others experiencing the same problem.

Shame because I like the game, I just can't play it for long without getting mad at it and I won't be buying any expansions unless they fix it.

Any spoilers in the trailer? I feel like I've seen too much already from all the other footage of the game that's been released so far.

In before someone says "Invisible war was a good game in it's own right though" because someone always does in a Deus Ex discussion.

I liked it but it was sure as hell the worst game to pick for a first ever FPS type game for someone to play on a console, so it certainly did have a learning curve for me

I only buy my PS3 games used or heavily discounted, they are just way too expensive brand new and I am months behind with what I want to play anyway so it doesn't bother me. I just finished Batman AA GOTY this week which at £17.99 is the most I've ever paid for a PS3 game. I'm hoping to get uncharted 2 in my stocking this Christmas.

It's great when devs have a game that's so bug free and optimised that they have extra time to put cool stuff in like this.

I love this game but it still suffers from CTD's between rounds for me so I can only play for so long without getting seriously pissed off with it.

It looks like they are only making gameplay tweaks in the patches new so I'm not holding out much hope of it getting fixed, and there's no chance of me buying the expansion.

The worst one for me was the firing range map, but they were all pretty bad apart from Nuketown. They all run silky smooth now without shadows.

The lagginess and frame rate problems are gone for the most part but now the game is kicking everyone out after 3 minutes of play with a Steam disconnect error, this game just can't catch a break.

Glad it's not just me then, I just had that on 3 maps in a row :(.

Multiplayer got a huge performance boost for me, but with shadows enabled, of all things, performance drops by literally half. There's clearly still a graphics-related bug going on.

Not that I notice shadows in multiplayer anyway, so it's easy for me to have fun with it regardless now.

Wow, I see what you mean, like I said a few posts back the patch fixed the hitching but hosed my frame rate, I just played a couple of rounds with shadows disabled and it's amazing what a difference it made to performance.

Well the patch fixed the stuttering but screwed up my overall frame rate

The worst thing for me is that I can't believe how difficult it is to jump into a game with friends, they shipped it with the inability to join a server from it's IP address either in the menu's or the console, you can't even click on a friend in your Steam list and join their game either (nice Steamworks integration there guys, just use it for DRM and VAC without actually giving us any of the useful features).

You can only see a fraction of the servers that are out there via the browser and even if you added a server to your favourites in the past, if it's not listed in the cache of servers currently in the browser then it won't appear in your favourites or recent lists either.

I've heard of people who are renting servers for their clans but can't actually find a way to connect to them!

I don't understand why Valve don't leave these single player mutations in the game full time?

Wow, that's a horrible price, a full 25% more expensive than the retail version is on Amazon, Play and Game.

I would rather get the digital version but at that price I will order the retail version and risk waiting a couple of extra days, it's not like I won't end up with it integrated into my Steam account whichever version I get anyway.

I find it a handy reference for which games to avoid buying on the PC and go for the PS3 version instead, like I did with GTA4, Batman and Fallout 3.

I'm quite content to ignore sll of this BS, if people want to let Valve sit on their money until they are ready to buy some new hats in TF2 then good luck to them.

If Steam wallet eventually becomes the only way to purchase games on there then it's all over for me.
