    Er, isn't that a bit like comparing IL-2 against an RTS? They're entirely different genres, arguably even if you move the fleet management aspects into a typical space sim viewpoint.

    World of Goo. To date, it's the only PC game I've been able to get my otherwise games-phobic wife to play (which she did, nigh-obsessively, through most of the OCD challenges). Also, possibly the...

    Max Payne 3 has a brilliant but very short section set in an airport - http://youtu.be/L3o-z5Xw-F4. (the rest of the game was soundtracked brilliantly - IMO - by the same band, similar to a movie...

    Pff, my first moon lander didn't have a lander - I just jumped in the air and grabbed the side. Has to be said, the only other successful landing (with a much nicer, ladder equipped, lander) did end...

    Have you played any of the games before?

    Because that's the key thing. I went through the first ones (CoD, the expansion, CoD2, Cod4:MW), and they're all more or less the same thing; which is why...

    Dirt 2 still has GFWL with, AFAIK, no confirmed plans to remove it - so probably not too surprising it's not in there.

    I have been, somewhat oddly*, playing the Kerbal Space Program demo. Partly because it's surprisingly addictive (and I regret not getting it in the Steam sale), but mostly because my daughter loves...

    It'd probably help if they didn't have the 'more than 2000 games on sale' bit persisting in the banner. Is it just me, or is this the first time they've actually stopped the regular discounts before...

    Natch, it's the stuff that wasn't on flash or daily deals (or that lost community votes). C'est la vie - I just wish the front page had been clearer about exactly when the sale ended (whether it was...

    It's kind of annoying, IMO - I'd been waiting until today before making a decision on buying some stuff and..well, no chance now. I always find it really confusing as to when Steam sales actually...

    I'm mostly playing stuff for trading card purposes on Steam, largely as a mechanism to filter my vast unplayed library. Although I've not actually bought anything this sale round.

    Sounds a shame (need a space-sim fix), but good to know. I'll skip it for the moment then.

    At the risk of diverting the topic, is there anything (complete or in a reasonably featured early...

    True, what I really mean is that China stands out as the nation feasibly able to use military might as a big stick (especially with the current activities to extend bluewater naval capacity).

    I think people seem to forget that, if you're having a game with the US - the whole country - as a protagonist force, there are very few opposing forces capable of making that game a fair challenge. ...

    Former didn't work, but the logitech vista drivers did. Except not in any games, annoyingly. Not sure if it's some vista+ directInput thing? ho hum.

    Is there a consensus on which is the better game - Napoleon, Empire or Shogun (2)?

    SLI works a bit like RAID mirroring, I think (in this respect).

    Not that this comment adds anything useful, I'd just like to express my jealousy of your phenomenonemally Big Shiny Gpu.
