    Just completed Max Payne 3, thought it got a little silly and too bloody difficult toward the end, the storyline also got a little convoluted too. So Pasos was a good guy?

    Well anyway i'll probably get cracking on Dishonored next seeing as i've had it since release day and havn't even completed the first mission. But then again I still need to complete Roche's storyline in The Witcher 2 which is currently reinstalling...

    I'm about 2 hours into Just Cause 2. It's a gorgeous game and I love the grappling hook, but in all honestly I don't really think that it's for me. I just kind of go through the motions without really caring, and I don't find the mechanics nearly tight or interesting enough to want to play. I'll give it a little more time, but if it doesn't grab me soon I'll probably just move on. Bought it on sale anyway, so no real buyers remorse.

    Think of it as an Action Movie Holiday Simulator. The story missions are just there just for filling; the real FUN of JC2 is in exploring and exploding.

That's a story of how all this DRM and PC release bullshit can really spoil a game for you, right there.

    Over the christmas sale I re-bought the GOTY on steam, and it's a very different experience. I know I have the full game, and I'm much more inclined to look in all the nooks and crannys for content I might have missed the first time. And that's a lot, because I only completed the main storyline and never came back. Now I've changed my mind about AC's combat and agree that it's pretty much better in every way.

    What do we learn from this? I don't know. I still feel bad because I now bought the game twice and feel like I encouraged the publishers to initially bomb all their releases with widely distributed but not globally available DLC, and then release a GOTY and force everyone to buy the whole thing again. If this happens to everyone with at least one game, they still get filthy rich from this sick market strategy.
    Games for Windows Live! It's kind of like XBox Live, only shittier.

    You're not alone in this BS. I had the same experience with Fallout 3, re-bought it on Steam for the sole purpose of getting the GFWL bugs out of it.

    I tend to think Microsoft does this crap on purpose.

    Halved their prices or XP cost?

    XP gained is based almost entirely on the length of the match, your actual score or whether you win or lose hardly matters at all. Generally I'd say anything more than 42k XP will feel like a fucking chore.

    See, that's what I mean: people buying a game again, because of DRM. That can't be right.

    Also it defies my capability for logic, but GFWL is much less bad with Steam, thus covering one with a whole nother layer of DRM. But it's true, because steam does the updating, it somehow makes GFWL less game breaking.

    KotoR after many years on Steam.

    With appropriate widescreen hack shenanigans and a mod to make the gui fit the new resolution.

    Graphically its aged horribly but everything else is as sweet as ever.

    Aside from anything else, the steam version of fallout 3 requires that you use GFWL too, unless you decide to patch it out, which is completely feasible for any version of the game thanks to modders.

    Just finished off Act 1 of Kentucky route zero. There is definitely something charming about the game (I'm quite fascinated to see where it goes with the further acts). An interesting counterpoint to the walking dead in terms of how you're shaping the narrative through your choices to some degree, even though the story is going in a singular direction, but with KRZ there's no life or death weight to your decisions, Vs just saying what you feel is appropriate. Only downside is no 1920x1200 resolution. :(

    XCOM and I did a third terror mission with four colonels and a couple of low-rank supports. Goddamn, those colonels could take hits like champs and not give any shit about it. And then proceed to shoot the fuck out of the aliens with crit hits.

    I assume they halved the prices as well(didn't check) but XP cost is at least halved. That means the most expensive items are now 44k xp.

    Would you mind posting how you hacked widescreen/gui improvements into it? I'm thinking of playing it soon, and I'd love it to look at least kinda decent.

    Sounds like U.S. Gov't logic, where we fix out of control spending with more spending. We fix broken DRM with more DRM. And Steam may provide lots of useful services, but it's still wrapped up in some nasty DRM of it's own.

    I think we can fix that problem by informing Gaben that DRM does not stand for Donuts Ready to Masticate.
