    Dragon Age II is $12 on Origin.

    This is tempting at 13 bucks (after tax): what kind of DRM nonsense or DLC does the game have?

    DNA Building Blocks Can Be Made in Space

    Without getting too much into the biology i'll try to explain the basics. The early earth had a very different atmosphere than what we have today. There was no free O2, by this i mean any oxygen that was around was sequestered in water or other forms. This was a very good thing because oxygen...

    EA Says Steam "Too Restrictive" For Battlefield 3

    If the gamer stats are not a big deal ( and it shouldnt be if the game is something your not interested in) you can have him sign in to offline mode. He will then have access to every game and you can log online or offline on your computer to do the same. I actually have my wifes' computer set...

    DNA Building Blocks Can Be Made in Space

    Well the 'Im alive so it clearly happened' is a good starting point. If more people would understand that religion is a social system used to control people and move past it they would see that the universe opens up. The interesting part now becomes how did everything get to where it is now...

    A Farewell to Galaxies: Escapists last stop in SWG

    I do feel that the game was pretty bad but had massive potential. I really enjoyed the creature handler in the short amount of time I played it.

    Opinions on Valkyria Chronicles

    Reading about this makes me want to play it again. Not sure if i beat it or not the first go around lol. I agree that sometimes you have to rush through it to get the best score, replaying it and killing every unit sounds a lot more fun. I wish they released a proper sequel for the ps3.

    Cthulhu Saves the World? ROFL

    My favorite 2 scenes were meeting the boss after first getting paws and then scene after you get your powers back. I will say after playing this and breath of death I went out and bought a couple JRPGs on the Ps3 i had missed.

    Dragon Age 2 Disappears From Steam!

    Valve doesnt buyout good compaines and turn them to shit, so fuck EA. I dont care if this is Valves' fault or not.

    Apple to Replace Faulty Seagate 1TB iMac Hard Drives

    Seagate used to be a good manufacture, but their 1tb+ hard drives are complete shit. They have an extremely high failure rate for some reason. I actually had one for a little while because previously I used them exclusively for new builds. After 2 days it started clicking. This is a known...

    Apple to Replace Faulty Seagate 1TB iMac Hard Drives

    Ah the joys of prebuilt computers full of shit components. At least Apple is stepping up unlike most if not all of the PC laptop companies.

    What should Skyrim bring from Oblivion?

    It is hard for me to think about anything oblivion did better than morrowind or daggerfall except for graphics and perhaps horses.

    Cthulhu Saves the World? ROFL

    Could someone check the game folders to see if there is a config file? It might be in my documents as well. Id like to try and start the game with no music to see if i can bypass the WMP crap but I am guessing it doesnt create a config file until after you modify the options.

    Divine Divinity II: The Dragon Knight Saga

    Its the expansion plus a remastered original in one. They fixed some bugs and smoothed out the progression, plus other things i dont remember. Much better buy, and it gives the game an actual ending unlike just playing it without the expansion.

    Nintendo DS Outselling 3DS Two-to-One

    When I was packing up some netfix disks this morning i noticed that the 3ds will have netflix sometime soon. I do not know any details but I can imagine that will influence future sales in a positive way.

    Dungeons of Dredmor released on Steam, $4.50

    Ive put too many hours into this so far. The deepest I've gotten is lvl 4, seems like it will be fairly easy moving on as my character kills everything with 1 fireball now heh.

    2K: turn based xcom not contemporary enough

    I see this ruining the series, pretty much like every other recent rendtion of aquired IP's. The big studios fail to understand that fans what more of the same with updated graphics and refinement/addition of game features.

    Just a heads up for anyone that wants to build a house for themselves: Over the course of the game you unlock a total of 7 npc's. These npc's will move into houses you make, regardless if it is one you are using. I would recommend creating a structure somewhere in the world with 7 rooms for...

    Assassins Creed 2 $3.74/4.99

    It was 6 bucks for the directors cut on steam, or free if you bought the complete pack depending on how you divied out that extra 6 bucks in savings.

    Parallax has to do with how the background moves. If you have it set to a mid to high setting when you are underground you can see the background move with relation to the foreground, its a neat effect so I recommend to turn it up to about 50 or more. As far as the workbench, forge...

    Steam Summer Sale 2011

    I just bought x3 but I can tell you without even playing it it is nothing like sins of a solar empire. Sins is a strategy game more or less that set in space. X3 is a lot more like a single player eve - You do whatever you want. From what I read X3 can get boring if you dont feel like...

    Steam Summer Sales 2011 - unofficial Thread

    Its nice to know my personal boycott of GFWL saved me some money this sale. Fable 3, Dead Rising, Batman, and Fallout3 goty (already own basic). It is kind of sad when overall at least 3 out of those 4 are great games. Having a blast with atomic zombie smashers and Alpha protocol though.

    Divinity 2 and/or Risen, worth it?

    Get them both. I will say having both I would be more inclined to replay DD again as a different class than Risen.

    Steam Summer Sale 2011

    I recommend both Divine Divinity 2 and The Last Remnant. Checking my hours it looks like I put in 145 hours into the Last Remnant for just 1 playthrough. I would read up on it though, the way character levels work it is kind of backwards and you can screw yourself by grinding mobs for exp...

    So I picked up Puzzle Quest 2 on a whim

    I enjoyed PQ2 in the begining, but near the end it just got repetitve and boring. I did beat it though with the Assasin, but it became a chore.

    Guild Wars pack on Steam - worth $15?

    Are there places that you can not solo with the new heroes? I know in the orginal one there was some high level instance that needed a group of peeps that knew what they were doing.

    Steam Summer Sale 2011

    For those that enjoy/enjoyed dues ex you might want to give alpha protocol a run. I bought it on the 5 buck sale and so far it's been really fun. Very much like dues ex in several ways.

    Mortal Online, Anyone play? Free 14-day trial, UO style mmo using UE3 engine.

    My first forum post was about mortal online. I was a lurker for many years due to the restriction on email accounts and me being lazy about it, but the potential of this game was too much to let go un-noticed. My wife still remembers me busting out laughing once I logged on to the game only to...

    Have gamers developed A.D.D?

    There have been a lot of good responses to why my 'games are shit' hit home with a lot of gamers. I want to expand on two trends that really bother me with games: lack of end content and the destruction of original titles. I know every single one of you have played a game in which once you...

    Blizzard sending out free keys for World of Warcraft to subscribers

    For all the shit WOW gets it is actually a fun game. The fun might not last if you dont like doing the end game stuff or rolling alts, or pvp but generally the rise to the top is entertaining.

    Interesting Social Dynamic...

    In a game where you can excange rl currancy for ingame money and even pay for your sub with in game money every item in the game that costs you in game money can already be viewed as a microtransaction. The only difference I see is that instead of spending in game money on...

    Gods & Heroes: Rome Rising

    Well I went ahead and bought it.... Impressions so far are mixed. The player character models look really dated, and so does a lot of the buildings. The world itself looks pretty good though. The amount of content so far reminds me of rift: there are enough quests to level you, but not...

    Gods & Heroes: Rome Rising
