    Pizza delivery in the online age!

    Tipping is for suckers. I've never tipped, and I'll never tip. Their employer pays their wage, they're doing what they're employed to do. I am not their employer.

    Alice the Madness is here!

    Personally, if you enjoyed the first Alice... and aren't expecting some mind-blowing AAA top-tier title with 'Madness Returns', but know and accept that it's more along the lines of the old school simple gameplay of the first game. Then you should enjoy it. In short; Don't expect it to be something it's not, and you shouldn't be disappointed.

    Bad Company 2

    Love when that happens.Either they drive off on you without a care in the world. Or they reverse over you in a panic 'cause they're taking hits, instead of sitting there and letting you repair while they find the source and fight back. Cool when you're repairing and the driver gets out and starts repairing too... so you stop getting points 'cause it's an empty vehicle.

    Map of Metal

    From what I can see, it's missing a few things.

    Steam Specials Thread

    I do, this is why I watch a lot of movies containing those themes you describe though and that doesnt require me to persist though terrible gameplay, controls and so on... Max Payne 1 & 2 is a great example of how interesting characters and mature stories marry up with fantastic gameplay. Admittedly I cant think of any others at the moment. though That said, if there was a K&L Pack for $10 I'd probably get it and give it another crack. I never finished it on the xbox... at the moment the first one is $20 :/ Personally, the first game got a bit iffy when you get to the 'military' type stages later in the game. But otherwise I found it to be fairly decent for its time.But I really enjoyed the second game. It was pretty intense. I also love Kane and Lynch as characters, so yeah.

    Steam Specials Thread

    If you don't like Kane and Lynch, you don't appreciate interesting characters, and mature stories. People complain about the gameplay being generic, but here's a protip: Look at 90% of your games collection post-1995 and you'll find the same thing.

    Foxtel on Xbox 360?

    My housemate uses it. Seems to work well.

    Best War Movies?

    If you ever watch Apocalypse Now, all the way to the end, Nuke... and you don't like it. Just take the first knife you see and completely remove your testicles from your body, because you don't deserve to be a man.

    Crysis 2 Pulled from Steam

    God I hated EA Download Manager. If we're forced to use Origin for EA games in the future, then let us pray that it works better than that steaming pile of shit.

    Post Your Latest Real Life Purchase!

    Awww, yeaaaahhh! EDIT; Saw my Bravia NX sitting next to whatever the top Samsung was 6 months ago and unless the Samsung had a dodgy feed, the Sony blew it out of the water. Again, my deepest condolences. Don't Samsung make Sony's panels, anyway?Unless something has changed since 2008/9, when I last checked in on the matter.

    Gran Turismo 5 APPRECIATION and screenshot thread!

    Hi elfinke, I haven't played since the PSN blackout. To be honest, I've turned my PS3 on twice since. I'm definitely down for playing, though. And to your delight, I prefer low-PP races (500-550pp), as they're closer and more competitive races than the higher performance cars. I just need to find motivation to drag my PS3 upstairs, as my housemates are TV junkies -- as I've said a few times in this thread, I'm sure.

    Modern Warfare 3

    I don't think BF3 will top MW3 in sales, better game or not. But who cares... BF3 will still reap massive profits for DICE and EA. ...And that's all that matters.

    Daemon Tools alternative for Windows XP?

    Hmm, I stopped using Daemon Tools a couple years ago, and replaced it with Power ISO. Not sure if it supports mdf/mds, though.
  14. Q: Is the Physical Warfare Pack available in all regions, or just in the UK? A: It will be available worldwide at select retailers. It was first announced in the UK. Exact details for other countries and retailers will be announced at a later date. Q: Will Physical Warfare Pack imbalance the game? A: The three exclusive items in the Physical Warfare Pack were specifically chosen not to be overpowered or imbalance or break the game in any way. Q: Why do I want the Physical Warfare Pack? A: Owning these items will give you a more varied arsenal, but it will not give you a significant advantage on the battlefield. Q: Is the Back to Karkand expansion pack exclusive to pre-orders? A: No. You can also buy it separately if you do not pre-order Battlefield 3. Back to Karkand will be available the exact same date after the launch of Battlefield 3 no matter if you pre-ordered or buy it separately. Q: When will the Back to Karkand expansion pack be released? A: We have not yet announced the Back to Karkand expansion pack release date. Q: How much does the Back to Karkand Expansion pack cost? A: We have not yet announced a price. However, it will be included in the Limited Edition at no extra charge. Q: Do I have to choose between Back to Karkand and the Physical Warfare Pack as my pre-order bonus? A: No. There is no way you can pre-order Battlefield 3: Limited Edition and not end up with the Back to Karkand expansion pack at no extra charge. On top of this, select retailers all over the world will carry the Physical Warfare Pack. Exact details for other countries and retailers will be announced at a later date. Q: Why do you offer pre-order bonus items? A: Because we believe in rewarding our core fanbase with special offers -- such as giving them the Back to Karkand expansion pack at no extra charge.

    [ALL] Dirt3. Anyone playing yet?

    Anybody wanna play online in a short while? On my way home from my gf's place, gonna get smashed and fire it up. :)
  16. Pretty sure it was posted on the previous page.

    [ALL] Dirt3. Anyone playing yet?

    I stopped reading when I got to this ridiculous comment.

    I don't think any of that is in-game except the side-on double chopper shot... and even that doesn't look right.

    New cards for 3/4 Quarter

    Yeah, doesn't make sense to me either, since I'm sure I've also read all the videos made have been using a single GTX580 (I think?). Can't seem to find where I read either of these things, either... :S

    FARCRY 3

    I feel the same way... But also, I always felt, while driving around in jeeps and stuff that Far Cry 2 would've worked better as an animal hunting game. :P I dunno, it just had that kind of visual feel.

    New cards for 3/4 Quarter

    Until system requirements for BF3 come out, nobody will know 100%. The devs have stated, however, that no current PC built can run BF3 absolutely maxed out with a decent framerate.
  24. Fuck really? Yes.Confirmed that Battlefield 3 is an EA Origin exclusive. Though no official word has been said on whether retail copies also tie to an Origin account or not. Personally, I am annoyed if they do... as I don't need another program I don't need or want running in the background. ALSO; That BF3 multiplayer video looked nuts.
