Just an FYI for all those interested in Anno 2070. On sale over at Gamersgate for $20. Still on the fence about it myself, but that's the cheapest I've seen it so far.

Anybody know if the Thief collection will play on 64-bit multicore Windows 7?

Go Here

Here's an excellent thread to help with the Thief games. I've installed the fixes for T1 &T2, but haven't tried it for T3, as I don't have that one on steam. Anyway, it works great. Playing T1 with no problems.

I wanted to like it but heard it was buggy. If turning off 'gibs' completely fixes it I may be interested. Johnny five needs more input!

It's actually a really cool game. Been playing it off and on for a bit, and while the AI can be kinda simplistic, it's a fun game that has quite a bit of character customization. You can choose your loadout, and similar to Elder Scrolls, the more you use weapons, the better you get at them. Story is a touch confusing, due to the translation, but it's cool nonetheless.

That's how I felt about it until I tried the demo. Ends up being just a generic cover based shooter. Enemies just stand there until you shoot them, which is always annoying. The story and visuals are pretty good, but the overall gameplay was just 'bleh' to me.

Were you seriously expecting anything different? This thing has CoD clone written all over it.


Expecting? No. Hoping, yes.

Yeah, it's quite impressive how much better it is now. Runs a lot better, game modes are better. Will probably start really playing it now.

Yep, that's the only reason I haven't gotten it, even for a price like that. Shame, really, cause I enjoyed the demo. Regardless, I'll wait for a cheaper price, or at least a change to the DRM (which I doubt will ever happen)

$5 for LA Noir. Still have no interest in buying it, even at that price. However, I'd still be willing to pay full price for Red Dead. Bastages.

Did pick up Arkham City though. $15 bucks was too good to pass up.

There was a Ferret in the first game? I remember the cat and the wolf/dog, I don't remember any ferrets. Nevermind, I haven't played in so long, now I'll have to go play it again. Oh and if I could get the ferret a hockey mask and a chainsaw, that would be perfect.

The ferret was a mod made by Runic.

Yes, can't wait for this to come out.

And to answer a bit about Path of Exile, it seems pretty interesting. Haven't played a lot yet, but it's cool. Looks nice, controls are good, and has some interesting mechanics. For one, the potion system is pretty awesome. Like Dungeon Siege, you only drink what you need, and also, your potions fill up as you kill enemies. Skills are derived from gems that you socket to your equipment. 'Normal' skill tree is somewhat all passive stuff. But it's freaking gigantic. Pretty overwhelming when you first look at it.

Hey gilly, try messing with your CPU affinity for SPAZ. I started having problems myself. Not sure if it was after a driver update or SPAZ update or what. Anyway, after some looking around, I found that if I set the Affinity to CPU 0 and CPU 1, it runs perfectly. Worth a shot at any rate.

On Sale at Greenmangaming for $19.79. Tempting, as it sounds like this expansion is good. Not sure if I'll get it though, as I've hardly played the base game so far. The TW series is one that I really WANT to like, and I do, but I never end up playing them much. And I've bought all of em except for Empire I believe. Probably played each one around the same amount of time. Not sure why that is.

Did anybody else receive some random Steam coupons in their inventory? I did, and have no idea where they came from.

Oh, and BTW. For those interested, Renegade Ops is $7.49 on Amazon this week. I picked it up and activated through Steam. Surprisingly, it includes both DLC's for it. So that was a double bonus

My guess is that they updated the engine to allow for higher resolutions. Hopefully it's more than that though

"that enhances the gameplay experience"

How do ads enhance gameplay? ...


By having a direct link to Bed Bath and Beyond. Wherein you can order a snuggie directly from within the game. Then, once it has arrived, you can be much more comfortable while playing the game for 18 hours straight, therefore enhancing the gameplay experience.

Project Nevada is a rather big mod that adds/changes lots of things

Caliber mainly used by other mods to add in additional calibers for new/modified weapons

Weapon Mod Expansion adds a ton of new weapon mods

Shrapnel adds a ton of new weapons and modifies some existing ones

Tailor Maid interesting mod that lets you 'mix and match' pieces of different armors. Results can be kinda wonky though

Anyway, those are ones that I think are pretty cool. Haven't messed much with texture/lighting mods yet.

Sure, send me a copy. I will give it a spin when I have free time whenever that is. http://www.gamerankings.com/pc/932682-the-ship/index.html seems to have decent ratings. Throw it to "antdude" please.

Can I get an email from ya? Tried adding you as a friend to send it that way, and Steam is telling me 'that feature is not available now' lol.

Edit: ok, got a hit on antdude, but not sure if it's you. Has a different name than what you have listed here on Blue's. That one is Dave W. from San Diego. That you?
