    Zeno Clash

    I played the demo and enjoyed it. If I didn't have so many games to play right now I'd buy it probably. But until then, I think I'm gonna wait for a weekend deal. I love it when games are built off of Source engine!

    GTA 4 PC: Professional Review Scam

    When you consider the rigs that PC Game Reviewers probably use to judge a game, of course GTA IV would do very well. Most GTA IV PC users probably did not have as good as a PC, therefore performance sucked and they give it a poor review.

    Games that 'everyone' hates... but you love! (warning- play nicely)

    I loved Matrix: Path of Neo as well as 24: The Game. Both games did not go over so well with the critics.

    Yeah I agree with you, the inventory system is a only a tiny bit improved...still ugly and fairly inefficient.

    Brothers in Arms Hell's highway awesomO!

    I really enjoyed the game. Played it through in just a few days. And I agree that the cinematic are great, however the run a tad too long in my taste. But then again, I enjoyed MGS's cut scenes so maybe its just me.

    Which RTS game should i play first?

    Really? That's ridiculous. "Um..yeah we didn't like your expansion. So, uh...we're gonna sue you!" But yeah the original World In Conflict was a gem of a game.

    Which RTS game should i play first?

    Haha, nice to know someone is keeping the PC game industry alive. I vote Demi-god. I heard the RA and WiC expansions are mediocre. Hopefully that isn't the case.

    Good laptop FPS games?

    Well, official Steam games such as Counterstrike: Source, Team Fortress 2, and Left 4 Dead all have great anti-cheat measures (so long as you play on a "VAC Enabled" server), Although in any Valve package you won't get anything in terms of military or war-type games. I would suggest maybe...

    Steam Weekend Sales

    After waiting forever for a good deal on CoD4, I decided to suck it up and pay the full price. Whatever, the game is worth it anyways.

    OnLive...death of dedicated pc hardware?

    I absolutely love the idea. But I don't know if our internet would be capable of this today. Maybe some of those European connections can do it :p.

    Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood

    I thought the first CoJ was pretty good. The kid platforming levels kind of sucked, because FPS platforming is well...kind of stupid. Also, the whole not being able to whip the horse/corpse thing was silly. The storyline and the action was enjoyable. So I'm looking forward to this one. I...

    Popular games that you just...hate

    Hate is such a strong word..... However, I couldn't really get into Fallout 3 or the Stalker Series. Games with weight or inventory systems piss me off.

    Fallout 3 ... overrated?

    Overrated? No, not really. Did I like it? Meh..... It was fun at first. I found myself getting bored. I feel a game can be too open-worlded. I didn't like the idea of having to open every little box and shelf if I wanted to make money or get good items. I found myself mashing the E key...

    New Nvidia Card...Need to know what to get (sizewize)

    I would love to overclock my CPU but my motherboard doesn't allow any kind of overclocking unfortunately. Well I'm thinking I have at least another inch, maybe even an inch and a half for the video card so I should be able to handle a 260 no problem. But if I get a Geforce 260 I guess the...

    Pirate Bay cashing in?

    I think DRM has worked in some of these cases though. It's bullshit that DRM causes more piracy because they don't like the DRM. That's honestly just a lame-ass excuse to justify their pirating.

    Advice on my upgrade.

    Hardware Guru...would it hurt if I got the 4870 ATI card? Maybe future proof myself a little bit more?? Especially since I might want to get a larger monitor in the future.

    Pirate Bay cashing in?

    I only read the part after the picture and the advice to consumers/producers. Interesting though. I myself am kind of working on quitting the pirating thing. I really can't afford games but I'm to pay for ones that I think will be worth it. And for the ones I don't think will be worth it...
