Red Faction: Armageddon Path to War DLC

Spoiler

this was brilliant. :applause:

Wow. I think I just ran across the most slightly insane review on Amazon about Need for Speed: Carbon. (Ordinary street racing game, nothing offensive.)




I fear the next racing game she buys is a crappy F1 simulator with a single oval track with no opponents, only the clock to complete against.

I wonder if Mario Kart is too violent for her. Those koopa shells will knock you on your ass everytime.

Wait, sex is supposed to be multiplayer!?!

Judging from porn sales, it also comes with a singleplayer mode.

What if sex was a MMO...?


EDIT:


Is there DRM?

Does it use Steamworks?
If yes - does it have an "offline mode?"

Or is it DRM-FREE?

I wonder if Tony could pricematch this. :bouncy:

Choose windows 7 and then flash for other browsers. Pretty sure that's what worked for me.


Thanks, I'll try that tonight. Pretty sure I went there and didn't see Windows 8 options and wasn't sure if 7 would work.

So far Windows 8 is somewhat annoying, but it was the cheapest option on my new build. I can probably live with it. One big hassle was the upgrade assistant that grabs the iso file reads your current OS and downloads 32 or 64 bit based off that instead of giving you an option. So if you want 64 bit, make sure you use the upgrade assistant on a 64 bit OS and save the file to a usb when given that option.

I just got Start 8 from Stardock and most times I pretty much forget it's not Windows 7.

I really haven't run into any issues with Windows 8. The flash videos work fine on Steam for me and I didn't have to reinstall or anything but maybe I updated some point along the way while I was still on Windows 7, I don't know.

Quite the glut of Borderlands 2 golden key codes. Makes me wonder if I should go ahead and install the game to redeem them although apparently it's scaled to your level so wouldn't be much point as I don't plan to playthrough right now.

You can redeem the keys and store them till you're higher level. You haven't actually used the keys granted by redeeming these codes till you open a chest in a hub-area later on.

After having good first impressions with Jet Set Radio, I decided to give Crazy Taxi a shot. As a note, if the Draw Distance is set to "Far" in the Configuration utility, the game will crash when loading the level. (As an added issue, the number of resolutions available is noticeably more restricting than Jet Set Radio.)

I'm glad SEGA made the decision to give Jet Set Radio more attention. Crazy Taxi works, but it's definitely not among the better Dreamcast-to-PC ports.

EDIT: I just tried Sonic Adventure DX, and I'm surprised it's different than the official PC version. (The Steam version seems to be an emulated version of the Dreamcast game.) That's an odd choice on SEGA's part, since Sonic Adventure DX's official PC version supports higher resolutions as well as Widescreen.

I don't see what's crazy about someone suggesting that a game where you deliberately wreck police cars might not be appropriate for all 10 year olds. Most such games (e.g. Most Wanted) are rated teen exactly as she suggests. The fact that you can't even imagine anyone having an objection suggests that you don't have a normal perspective on violence and/or the police.

That's a somewhat hyperbolic stance to take.

The first two sentences would have sufficed.

5 New Borderlands 2 Shift codes. They supposedly expire sometime tomorrow night.

Aww, man. Got my hopes up. Someone already posted those a few pages back.

That's an odd choice on SEGA's part, since Sonic Adventure DX's official PC version supports higher resolutions as well as Widescreen.

It's a straight port, and it's horrible. Even the highest resolution you can choose in the game (1024x768) is scaled 640x480, so it looks horrible. Read over here for the full details; the Steam version is a joke:

Agreed. That's a rather strict approach towards things (my parents were strict too; I couldn't play games with blood in them till I just started buying them myself, which they still were annoyed about), but it's ultimately the parent's decision.

You dont have to do that much. Just install. At the main menu under extras is the option to redeem your codes. Just make sure you have signed up for shift and the first time you enter a code you can link your account I believe.

I think the issue would be more with being seemingly oblivious to games, yet claiming to be a gamer. Also, to relying on some arbitrary rating for your parenting choices.

I think any gamer who is even somewhat familiar with games in general knows that 95% of your racing games out there will have some sort of crash component. A lot of them will have a cop component.

You'd think if they had the time to write a review, they'd also take 5 minutes prior to purchase to research the game.

Or at the very least look at it. The front cover of Carbon has two cars crashing into each other. The back specifically mentions cop cars and heat.

Damn Idiotekque, it must be a slow day on the forums if you've taken to correcting yourself, instead of waiting for someone else to do it for you. ;)

P.S. Is Space Channel 5 suffering from the same treatment?

I found that it's easiest to start in single player to get your bearings. After that, play with a bot to get an idea of what it's like in 2-player without the possibility of utterly embarrassing yourself. Once you have the confidence, it's time to see if anyone's looking for a match.

This is stating your own opinion. It is however misinformed. No part of gameplay is around deliberately wrecking police cards. I suggest trying to gain basic knowledge of something before attacking it.

Children will play roughly with toy cars, stuffed animals, & legos. Perhaps those should be taken away.

The fact that you can't even imagine anyone having an objection suggests that you don't have a normal perspective on violence and/or the police.



This is TROLLING. While your account dates back to 2005 you have only 267 posts (barely out of CAG-in-Training) and your last two posts were one month and three months ago.

Have you ever had someone break into your home and commit violence against you? I have.
Have you ever been wronged by police lying to cover up for their buddies? I have.
Have you ever had to get a restraining order? I have.

I've played a lot of the NFS games and tbh I had no idea that Carbon had cops. NFS has always been schizophrenic with half the games focusing on pure racing and the the other half on cop chases. Hot Pursuit and Most Wanted are the ones I associate with having cops.

Rumor is that Gamely will have on sale Mon & Tues steam keys for
XCOM - $25 ($20)
Walking Dead - $12.50 ($10)

20% off code 1GFT1112 may still be active then and would drop to XCOM - $20 & WD - $10

Not live yet. Mon & Tues


Nice price on those and I've been waiting for them. I can't help but wonder if they'll hit that price or better on Steam in a couple weeks... guess I can wait a while longer.
