    There are two immersion breakers in most games (of what ever type, be it racing or walking sims or FPSs RPGs). AI acting totally out of character and game objectives being out of character.

    Can you play a game where the endings a given, and it's not the one you want? (Not too much of a plot spoiler, as AFAIK all JRPG/Anime ends the sad way... no happy endings... ever. ;'

    The whole CS GO (especially the latest update) has put me off Valve as a company completely. TF2 was bad enough, but CS Go takes it from pocket money to consumer manipulation.

    Actually, looks more like a perfect merge of HumbleBundle and Steam. The best of both (in GUI). That kind of negates the usual.

    If you wish to recover any data on the HDD, then take it out, get a new one and then recover the data asap. Don't use it now.
