    Steam Specials Thread

    Strongly recommend purchasing Bard's Tale for 5 bucks - has a surprisingly lengthy campaign and some great humor. Played it when it was released back in 2005 or so, just bought it again for another (slightly nostalgic) play through - oh what fun! :D

    Macbook Pro.

    Thank you SOOO much tinbane - a very useful nugget of information has been added to my brain tank.

    New Magic Mouse

    Looks pretty, but is one of the worst mice i have used. Tracking sensitivity is abysmally low (at max settings) when trying to use it with a 27" iMac or even a 21.5" iMac It's uncomfortable to use And $99 is just too much. I could get TWO Logitech G5s for that.
  4. Only ever owned a Windows PC for my whole life, and now wanting to get a Mac as well. This has largely come about because i am just about to start a new job as a computer salesperson & repair technician for PCs & Macs (and will be needing to get Apple certified so i can repair Macs as well). Just wanting to know what i might need to know about them that might take a Windows XP user (myself) by surprise. What are some good websites to learn about them and their features? And what peoples experience has been like learning the ins and outs of Macs after using Windows for a long time.

    Anyone played the WET demo yet?

    Getting an Apple Mac for the first time ever

    Batman: Arkham Asylum

    *Also turns on 360 to find free theme*

    Xbox 360 Elite and PS3 same price in USA

    'bout time they simplified things. It'd be nice if there were a "clearance" price on the Pros though - don't need 120GB of space, or for the thing to be black. I reckon eBay would be a goldmine for cheap Pro models when the elite drops price.
  11. What party, isn't it always like this? :p

    Getting an Apple Mac for the first time ever

    I've never used Unix or Linux before - why would it help to use them, and Ubuntu in particular? Wouldn't i be best off getting myself a copy of Mac OSX? I have always had a bit of an aversion to Macs (not really 'Mac hate' though) , mainly because i know how to use Windows and on a Mac i feel like i have had my control taken away from me... not really the Mac's fault though i guess. I have just been fiddling around with my house mates Macbook with Leopard installed, and i must say: it's pretty damn sweet after using Windows XP for so long - there are a lot of features which i am slowly finding that are great, like the easily accessible widgets, and the ease of installing programs (just drag and drop), etc. One question though - is there an "enlarge window to full screen" button/shortcut in OSX? (like there is in almost every window in Windows XP up the top right) And are Mac's easily upgradeable hardware wise? (eg, is upgrading ram as easy as a PC?) Do they have a list of compatible hardware, or do they only let you use specific 'Apple' branded hardware?

    Anyone preordered Halo 3: ODST?

    Don't like paying the full preorder price so will probably pick it up in the first week from where ever is the cheapest. The Halo series is one of my all time favourites, so this is a must buy. Actually just playing through Halo 1 campaign (for like the 50th time) with a friend on legendary at the moment and having a freaking blast - so much fun!! And no Aki, everyone is NOT waiting for MC2 - the original was decidedly average - hopefully they do a better job with the sequel...

    Xbox 360 Elite and PS3 same price in USA

    No offence, but what do you classify as "full"? Yes it comes with a 120gb HDD, HDMI, probably one year of gold membership (Don't know) and it's black. That isn't much extra IMHO (Apart from the HDMI). What else does it come with that the PRO doesn't? ALL Xbox 360 consoles (Arcade, Pro, Elite) come with HDMI port.Also, all consoles come with a free 1 month Xbox live gold subscription for the first 3 accounts created on the console.

    Batman: Arkham Asylum

    One of the best games iv'e seen this year - must buy for sure.

    Batman Arkham Asylum

    This game looks so damn sweet - played the demo, definitely has the feeling of a great game to it, the x factor i guess. Reminds me of The Chronicles Of Riddick and The Darkness for some reason.

    Im bored!

    Lol well I guess I wouldnt mind it if the gameplay was better then the graphics but I'd rather have something 2008-2009 in graphics :p most of the recent games have shite gameplay in favor of good graphics. mass effect is excellent. but seriously, play some of the following games if you ahvent already: morrowind jade empire titan quest +1 to the above Also, try Star Wars Knights Of The Old Republic 1 & 2 - awesome star wars/rpg goodness.
  18. Lord-Ezekiel

    controllers, whats the point?

  19. Lord-Ezekiel

    Why do most PS3 games only support up to 720p?

    +1 to that. Also, i have played about 150+ 360 games and haven't noticed any of this supposed AA blurriness in any of them...
  20. Lord-Ezekiel

    Bionic Commando MP demo

    Yeah - i'm looking forward to the single player campaign as well. And regarding the graphics in the MP demo, remember that graphics are often scaled down a bit for multiplayer to ensure it runs smoothly, this may be the case here as well.
  21. Lord-Ezekiel

    Has anyone played "The Last Remnant"

    Thumbs up from me!
  22. Lord-Ezekiel

    What are your favourite open world games?

    Oblivion, followed closely by Morrowind (and probably Fallout 3 when i get it!).
  23. Lord-Ezekiel


    +1 to that - and Braid is awesome, i just bought the 360 version a couple of weeks ago :D
  24. Lord-Ezekiel

    The Chronicles Of Riddick: Assault On Dark Athena.

    It's a must buy for me - having finished Escape From Butcher Bay a long time ago on the original Xbox, it seems like as good a time as any to replay it in it's enhanced form on the 360! :) And Riddick is a great character - i'm looking forward to playing the new chapter in his saga, Assault On Dark Athena.

    The 360 Gods must be displeased with me

    I'd go and buy the Arcade, and sell the broken one on eBay - even clearly stated as broken I've seen many 360 consoles fetch over $100 - better than (potentially) fucking it yourself and voiding the warranty imo...
