I hope they do patch one in, as I generally like to join servers with around 16-18 people.

Huh?

I was under the impression that although the server browser isn't ingame that there still is a server browser.

Yep, there is. Just accessed through the Battlelog site. Once you choose a server, the game loads in the background, and a little notification will tell you that it's ready. Optionally, you can have it just switch to the game once it's done loading. Also, as has been said already, loading is a lot faster than the older games. Just yesterday I played a match of BF2, and was seriously annoyed at how long it took to load the map.

Hmm. Depends on when you clicked the link. I've noticed that Impulse sales end at 10pm Pacific Time. My client is showing that the Titan Quest bundle is the daily deal for today. Although right now I'm getting a 404 on it.
Anyway, maybe that's why the Dead Space bundle looks lousy. You could have just missed the sale price.

I predict the Monday announcement will be for DLC. I'd prefer a patch that lets you turn off the radar, though. That thing is so ridiculously overpowered, it renders almost all of the stealth augmentations useless.

Can always duct tape your monitor

and don't get me started on the joy I am having with Deus Ex: Human Revolution..

*gets Ray started*

Game of the Year, and quite frankly, Game of the (past) Decade. If it wasn't for the truly fucking miserable boss fights, I'd call it the best game ever.

Speaking of which, Amazon has it for 34.99 right now. And that's the digital download version. Just snagged it, and it's now downloading through Steam.
And also, if any of you haven't picked up Metro 2033 yet, it's a steal at $5 on Steam. I had preordered Homefront and got Metro for free, but after Homefront actually came out, the way I looked at it was that I bought Metro and got Homefront for free.

I've never played the other games, as I just thought of them as GTA ripoffs. Maybe they weren't really, but I never paid any attention.
This game, however, looks awesome. Seems like it's going to be a ridiculous, crazy ass blast of a game.
Hopefully they'll end up having a demo as well

Origin is just a renamed version of the EA Download Manger. The only good I found to come of EADM was linking my retail copy of ME2 to my EA account. Doing that, I don't have to have the disk in anymore. And yes, I know there are nocd's out there, but those have always been kinda funky for the ME games.

I was wondering if this was going to happen. Especially after IGN opened up their PC store. Your account and purchases show up on D2D and the IGN PC store, so I'm wondering if they're basically selling the name. It'll be interesting to see what comes of this

...is now available in North America for Windows, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, PSP, DS, and 3DS

Aww, no PC version for this one? Bummer. These really are great games. I haven't played through any of them yet, but I have played them all except for Indy 2. My son is addicted to em though, which is the main reason I've played em.

Hardcore mode? It already takes like 2 hits to kill someone.
Unless you're me. Seems like I can pump 10 or so rounds into someone, then they turn to look at me and I die.

Been trying to download the demo off of Steam for the last 7 or 8 hours. Clicking on the Download Demo button doesn't do anything

Game does look kinda cool though

Wonder if they're going to phase out D2D. Just logged in at the IGN PC Store, and clicked my account, and all the games that I have gotten from D2D show up there.

I feel the same way about the TW games. I have Rome, Medieval, and the first Shogun, but they're a bit much. Which is why I was wondering about King Arthur. Seems like the same type of game, but maybe not as much micro-managing. On sale on Impulse right now for 3 bucks. Maybe I'll just pick it up anyway.

Wowbagger, just go here http://www.starwraith.com/main/go.htm and download it. You get a 30 minute time frame I believe to check out the game. It's pretty cool, and one of these days I'm gonna buy one of his games. Just haven't gotten around to it yet

I was in shock that I'm not the only crusty bastard to remember AQ2!
*raises can o' beer to the sky and sheds a tear*

Ah yes...playing AQ2 with my 33.6 modem, and 500-1000ms ping...those were the days
Aside from the ping issue, that mod was awesome. Had a lot of fun with it despite the lag

They shouldn't bother with subtitles anymore and just add the year at the end of the title.

Or maybe the quarter?

Very cool. Maybe now I'll actually play through this. Had this game for years, but it's one of those that I start, then forget about for months, only to start it again, and, of course, forget about it again. Now just have to wait for it to be updated through Steam as this patch won't apply to the Steam version

Get Hegemony, get it now!
Sweet game and with the betas leading to the Gold version, they add so many improvements that you can't do anything wrong for $3...

Thank you for that suggestion. I had seen it was on sale, but knew nothing about the game, and just passed it over. Most games like that I don't pay attention to because they just don't do it for me. But after you mentioned it, I decided to try the demo, and just after a few minutes, I bought it. It's now roughly 3 hours later, and I'm taking my first break from it.
What does it for me is that it has combat similar to the total war games, but without the boring-ass city parts. It's really like a more streamlined total war game. Build units, send em out to conquer, rout enemies, capture them as slaves, and send em to work in your mines
Good game, and I recommend it to any Risk/Total War fans.
