    I just finished Cormac McCarthy's Blood Meridian, and I think that it's something I'll have to consider for a while before coming to a conclusion on. There were parts in which I absolutely hated the...

    I just finished Half-Life 2: Episode 2, which I suppose I'd rank above the first Episode, but below the two main games of the series. Overall, I had a good time with it, though I wasn't a huge fan...

    I just finished Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, which I had a pretty great time with in spite of the terrible end-game. The combat was a bit clunky, to be sure, but overall I think it holds...

    So far nothing is really grabbing me this sale, which is kinda disappointing since I've whittled my backlog down to 2 games (Half Life 2 Episode 2 and Star Wars: KotoR) and thus feel justified in...

    I'll look into the motherboard; didn't know that it was overclocking-enabled, and if I can save some money on that front I'll do so.

    As for the 280x, I'll look into it. The review that I read...

    In that case I'll probably pick it up; I generally like the AC series in spite of its (many) flaws.

    I think I've hit a wall with Fallout. I've somehow managed to exhaust all of my sidequests, but have only reached level 11, making the endgame near impossible. Plus, I killed the mother Deathclaw...

    Thanks for the advice; I'll downgrade the case and the GPU and invest in an SSD. Is there any particular time that it's best to buy parts, or do prices not fluctuate that much?

    Half Life 2's sewers weren't terrible, but still probably my least favourite part of the game. The original Deus Ex had some great sewer/underground sections.
