    Eh, I ran The Witcher 2 on low settings and it still looked gorgeous. I'm sure I'm not gonna be able to max this one out (even on the new machine that I'm putting together right now), but I imagine...

    Yeah, I don't think I'm going to build. I don't have the patience or the time to figure things out if they (inevitably) go wrong. That being said, I think I'm going to go with NCIX's custom PC...

    I'll keep that in mind; I'm not planning on overclocking so that should make things easier.

    Okay, so I've decided to go the build (or pay NCIX.com $50 to build it for me) route. The rig that I've specced currently looks like this:

    My gosh the leads The Lost and Damned are obnoxious. Not that GTAIV's protagonists were paragons of great character development, but at least they were a bit sympathetic.

    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.

    And that's Deus Ex: Human Revolution finished. Overall, a fantastic game, particularly in the middle section. The third act wasn't fantastic, in my opinion at least, but the finale was satisfying...

    The 'final boss' was actually fun, and the only one (so far, at least) that you could actually stealth your way through, which is a major plus in my book. Still, I'm glad to be out of that section...
