    I might hate the Mako less if most (all?) journeys on it didn't end up in a copy/paste remote base that I have to rid of its inhabitants.

    To be fair, once you get a Grammy, you lose the "lesser-known" attribute ;). Also Muse hasn't made a good album for years, so you're clearly in the right :P.

    Unsurprising. XFire basically died when they changed owners years ago IMO. I really wish they hadn't since Steam was still such a frustration to use, but now the masses (and most games) are on the...

    They've confirmed that you can do a clean install after you've redeemed your free copy via the upgrade, so at least there's that. I too would like the option of doing a clean install without going...

    I wouldn't really call Elite Beat Agents lesser known (I guess if you don't play rhythm games normally?), but I digress.
