I spent 2 hours in it this afternoon and was fine. My qualifications for back pain, you wonder? Constant, I have a lower lumbar injury. Think of one of your vertebrae breaking and slipping forward .


Sometimes I can spend upward of 12 hours in the chair. Of course there are breaks, but it depends on how much work I have to get done or if I'm in some long gaming session with friends over the weekend.

So guys I thought I'd tell you about a deal on Sleeping Dogs, Amazon PM'd gamestop's downloads so Sleeping Dogs is on sale for $29.99 for the next two weeks at Amazon, and obviously it is a steamworks game so the key works on steam, so if you have credit at either place this seems like a good deal. Here is a link :

http://www.amazon.co...uct/B007VFH3BQ/ .

anyways, also thoughts as to if this is worth it? Now that it has been out for a month, does it have any real replay value and any news about that DLC coming in October.

I put 29 hours in, and I almost did everything except the achievements like buy every car, buy every clothing item, etc. So it's worth $30 for the amount of content you get.

You know the more play Borderlands 2, but more I just feel like blah. I mean it isn't a bad game, it's just Borderlands 2 feels like a $60 expansion pack because it really doesn't do much the first game didn't do.

replay value? not so much, but i really enjoyed my 1 playthrough which took about 12 hrs. really fun game with excellent writing and voice acting. i'd say it's worth your money.

You can try opting into the beta update and seeing if that does the trick, if you're not already there. Big Picture is a completely new Steam experience for me, and I like it. You can also change the client permissions to run as administrator every time you start the program; we all trust Valve well enough for that, I think. ;)


I had that too and it mysteriously stopped. You could always opt not to restart until there's another update announced.


I get the same problem at times, and it seems related to opting in to betas. Like the client doesn't recognize that past updates were already applied whilst in beta.

Better to wait until the clusterfuck of the next 2 months?

Gotta release sometime...

I guess Summer might have worked better for them, though.



I was thinking not wait three+ years to actually release the port in the first place.

Alright, I've written off They Bleed Pixels. There's only so much wall jumping over spikes and around saws and slippery platforms into spikes one guy can take. The controls are better than Meat Boy, especially with Meat Boy's terrible wall jumps but still... They aren't as good as they could be, especially with a pixel perfect precision game filled with spikes and with fewer actual platforms to stand on than healthy foods in my diet.

It's competent but I have absolutely no desire to finish this. Not when Ys Origins, Bunny Must Die, Sleeping Dogs, and New Vegas are all still waiting gameplay. Take that for what it is worth.

normally i wudve never considered getting any of the new cod games. but it seems the new zombie mode for bo2 is quite content heavy with 3 seperate modes and an entire campaign for it. the game also has custom mutators for zombie killing. it sounds like l4d2 inside of bo2. i might get it just for that. i love me some zombie killing. but thats a big "might." right now theres only a 30% chance that ill get it.

I hadn't even heard of Blops 2 getting a zombie campaign. They practically had an overarching story that was almost compelling because of how scant it was in Blops 1. Still, I can wait for a $20 sale. Blops 1's matchmaking ruined zombies. MW3 managed a bit better though in the co-op half of the board matchmaking-wise

GreenManGaming is doing a Sega weekend with most titles 50% off plus a daily 75% off deal. Today's deal is Binary Domain for $9.98 - 20% from voucher GMG20-27J4Z-8NXHO bringing it to $7.99.

Binary Domain is 75% off until 1100 UTC September 28th
Sonic Generations will be 75% off from 1100 UTC September 28th for 24 hours ($6 after voucher)
Total War: Shogun 2 will be 75% off from 1100 UTC September 29th for 24 hours ($6 after voucher)
Aliens vs Predator will be 75% off from 1100 UTC September 30th for 24 hours ($4 after voucher)

All four of these are Steamworks. A few other titles of note are both parts of Sonic 4 and Sonic CD, all half off and Steamworks. Jet Set Radio was also added recently at $8 after voucher.

Edit: GamersGate also has Homefront Ultimate Edition for $6.24, $5.30 after IGN discount. The Ultimate Edition includes all the DLC, but the DLC is multiplayer only, which I assume is dead by now. The base game has been $5 before, so this isn't the best deal the game has seen.

Dang! I wish they gave a bit more advance notice. At work with no time to download and play any of the three games that make you eligible (certainly not to "hardcore"), especially as I only own LIMBO out of the three on PC. I would have liked a free Psychonauts code. . .

I just ran the desktop app and blew through the game to snag the achievements. Didn't take me much more than an hour and a half tops. Ranked Elite now getting 12/13 achievements.

If you pre-ordered Carmageddon: Reincarnation on Kickstarter, check your email. The Stainless guys just sent out free GoG codes for the just-released-on-GoG Carmageddon Max Pack. (I was following Carmageddon: Reincarnation well before their kickstarter.)

Thanks for the alert on that. I *finally* picked up Binary Domain. A month back I had decided to pick it up at it's next $10 sale, but due to my schedule I missed Amazon's $10 24 hour sale a few weeks back. I'd jump right into BD if Torchlight 2 didn't already have a hold on me. That GMG code is multiple use according to their blog.
