So they say OnLive kicked the bucket. Hurrah, I say! Maybe next time they'll realise that they can't force even the most imbecile of gamr boyz n' gurlz into a shitty service unless they're pushing something the idiots desperately want to play. So one wonders what measure of victorian georgian apparatus will inevitably ride in alongside the inevitably inevitable Half Life 3. I'd humbly suggest calling it the "Burner", for what it'll do to consumer rights and mods and whatnot. Alternatively, the "Bath Plug", because it'll be pulled eventually and you'll be left with nothing but an empty, useless tub with no tap. Also possibly, the "Bucket of Coal", an homage to Steam fans the world over. duckie

Why, it accentuates my lovely fringe. With your hair, it's no wonder you didn't know that. icon_chick

Unless, of course, you want to claim to know nothing of what happens with hot property when it's tied to a major company with money to burn, like Valve and Half Life 2, Blizz and Diablo III and others.

If that's the case, then I posit that you, good Sir, are the one with the hat made of foil of Tin. Or I would, but then, you know, your scalp... icon_drunk

Not only to that but to your preference of pixel perfect controls over triple A's tirade against anything resembling responsiveness and accuracy.

Grand lil' game. If anything, I dislike the "no child left behind" infinite lives system, but with a soundtrack like that, that's about as critical as I dare to be. Taito is violently rolling around in its grave, tho.

Looking forward to getting sweet revenge on the Space Invaders. Sequel, perhaps? icon_drunk

Anyone playing Sleeping Dogs? Got about an hour in and lovin' it. Shame the controls are a bit clunky on the PC version.

Also, anyone playing Diablo III?

Got Dark Souls on PC. I don't know why the required specs are as high as they are, this thing can run on a toaster at 30 FPS.

Its fun don't get me wrong - its just like the console versions - but my controller, which is a standard generic USB one, has some controls that are off from the PS3 version I had been playing at my friend's place.

And I can't change them.

Its driving me mad. The keyboard and mouse are virtually unplayable, so I'm stuck with a controller that has its buttons inverted.

Isn't it that super hard game that in which you can't save anywhere, and when you die, and you die often, yo have to start over everything?

Not quite, when you die you lose your souls and humanity, you use souls to level up and buy things and using humanity makes you a living person instead of running around as an undead monster. The rest of your inventory is perfectly fine. If you can get back to where you died and pick up your souls and humanity again before you die you're fine, otherwise if you die before you get back to it its gone forever.

The game saves frequently. The game just does checkpoints, so if the game saved right before you fight a boss it'll teleport you back to the last checkpoint regardless if you had exited and booted the game back up.

It is hard, though. I did fix my controller problem with a 360 controller emulator, so I'm doing a lot better since I'm not fumbling with the controls any more.

I have to admit being curious to find out what manner of game narcoleptic-supreme From had produced that had got all the consoletards' panties in a bunch and somewhat looking forward to either giving it a proper hiding, or, in an unusual reversal of fortune, actually be suitably entertained.

I'm not paid nowhere near enough to put up with ports of this quality, however.

Not to mention GF(Y)WL. icon_drunk

The actual port is fine as long as you have a controller to play it, the keyboard and mouse configuration is impossible to play with. As far as optimization goes you can play this on just about anything, and my computer's processor is well below what they originally recommended, and I can play it at a steady 30 FPS.

There's virtually no performance loss, the thing uses less RAM than nearly every other game I play by a large margin. The only fault is that its locked at a 1280x720 resolution with a capped 30 frames per second. And poor mouse and keyboard support.

Games for Windows Live isn't even obtrusive, as unbelievable as that sounds.

I say get it on a steam sale if you're unsure, beyond that I'd say its worth the 40 bucks, which considering how expensive most new games are nowadays its not a bad price for what you're getting.

You just need to make sure you've got a controller to play it.

CK2 is pretty beast. Not going to lie. ASoIaF mod makes it hilarious, though debatable as to whether or not it improves it.

Also caught Jagged Alliance 2 on sale on Steam. v0v.

I found demon souls to be harder, personally. Dark Souls was more enjoyable though. What does the Prepare to Die edition add?
