If you haven't played Call of Juarez yet, do yourself a favor and pick it up on GoGamer for $1. It's a very entertaining story-based Western FPS, which is definitely a less common environment for the genre.

I just finished the game yesterday. I have really mixed feelings about it, mostly negative. I felt like I was playing both an old tech demo and a game-long tutorial.

For a dollar, you can't go wrong. Hell I bought if for $10 and felt like I got my money's worth. But I certainly would never have gladly paid anymore for it.

The majority of the Capcom ports have been truly pityful.

All of their ports recently have performed great and have also had superior features on PC. Using the Resident Evil 4 excuse, which was several years and many games ago, does not even come close to justifying your argument.

Anyone pre-ordering or buying this game on the first month of release is supporting the notion of industry-wide price increases for games.

For those who "don't give a shit" and are buying it day one anyone, thank you and I hope you enjoy $70 console games next year!

The demo had way more bugs than a load level crash based on what the forums are saying. I hope the full game is more polished because this is the one game this year that I want to like and buy.

PC only release. Looks like a fun FPS puzzler. If reviews are mediocre or better, I'll pick this up.

I'm almost done with Sam & Max season 2 and am just plain loving it. Telltale did a great job wrapping all the episodes together with a great over-arcing plot, while making them great stand-alone too. Here's hoping for a season 3 coming soon

I'm nearly finished with episode 4 of season 2, and I agree with you for the most part. I think season 2 lost a little bit of focus - some of the puzzles just seem slapped together. Still enjoyable though.

I want singleplayer games and I want them on my chosen gaming platform. If that means DRM because some people can't stop stealing shit, so be it.

Most intelligent post on Blue's this week.

Who cares? Never heard of this title or its predecessor. Paradox is a failing, little-known developer. It's no wonder they'd resort to pathetic tactics such as this to get a PR buzz. I hope their plan fails just on principal. >:[

Ridiculous.

They've actually developed/published some pretty damn good games. But it's nice of you to want people to fail because they're trying to drum up a little interest! You must be a great person to be around.

You might. The large majority of people wouldn't.

Really? The large majority? I guess 50 frames per second is the new choppy.

Nvidia's idea of putting it on their GPU, but then letting it take horsepower from the GPU itself, isn't very smart. Do people want cooler physics? Sure. Not at the cost of 30% of their framerate, however.

When a game is running at 70 fps, I'll gladly take a 30% hit in performance for the better effects physx displays.

Owning and playing throuhg both Mirror's Edge and Cryostasis, I can say that physx effects are great when implemented correctly. The gameplay doesn't change, but to me it's the equivalent of going from "medium" texture detail to "high" texture detail - it's still the same game but only prettier.

I for one support hardware enabled physics (a la physx) as it is yet another way PC games can utilize available technology to be superior to their console ports.

. I've never purchased anything through GOG; are those games "tweaked" to run natively in XP or would you still need to run DOSbox or something similar?

They use dosbox. The GOG install wrapper will download/install everything and preconfigure it for you.

$60 games are the reason I don't own a 360 or PS3 (that, and I don't want a controller for FPS or strategy games). Plain and simple; this is price gouging. They've been using the same engine since call of duty 4 and the engine has also been used in other games besides COD. A recycled engine with only a 2 year development cycle cannot justify the increase in price.

I hope Activision continues to piss off their fan base. Perhaps it will tank sales enough to force them to at least return to orbit around this planet.

The single most redeeming aspect of playing Bethesda RPG's, apart from the detail and varied quests, is that there isn't anyone else around to ruin the game experience for you. There are too many juvenile, spoiled, and/or socially inept people playing games for me to have any desire to deal with in what is supposed to be a single player game. In fact, the only online games I've played in the past year are TF2 and L4D - but even then 50% of the time I get stuck playing with someone who's personality I either simply cannot stand or goes out of the way to destroy the fun for everyone else.

Bethesda can pretty much count me and thousands of other customers OUT of buying an MMO elder scrolls game.

I have a feeling Ep3 is going to be a full on sequel. Gave says 'yes' it is being developed but refused to say anything about it because of the amount of emails he would certainly get if he did. I do hope the franchise doesn't stop there. I usually get quite bored of games like 'need 4 speed 15' but that is usually because the quality drops. So frankly I would love to see the franchise continue indefinitely, so long as the story is pertinent and the gameplay as amazing as HL always has been.

You're probably dead on. I'll bet the source engine will have be heavily modified too beyond it's current retail state. Source 1.5, or 2.0 perhaps.
