Medal Of Honor Warfighter $29.99
Need for Speed Most Wanted - $19.99
Battlefield 3 Premium Edition - $29.99
Inversion - $4.99

Was only looking to buy cheap games but for price for 2 recent releases that I really want to play I will support Tony and Amazon so publishers keep giving good deals on new games.

By the way Tony any deals on Assassin's Creed III Standard or Deluxe?

Trying to figure out - are you joking w/ me or are you serious? Or a mixture of both?

The stuff I said about StarForce disc-DRM was meant to be a serious. That disc-based DRM is no joke.
Those are many of the reason people complained about it over the years and were throwing lawsuits Ubi's way; and hence why Ubi and many others dropped it.


Oh, yes - I forgot, I also use a gamepad for racers, too.
Add that to my list, some few posts back.


I found your CD/DVD-based StarForce DRM to be an interesting and clear explanation, taking it seriously. My whimsical (but technically correct) musings applied that to download DRM. What I mused is theoretically possible, but the precision and technical difficulty would require extremely precise instruments.

conflicted on whether or not to get it now. >.> is there a way to play offline?


Whenever you boot Dark Souls PTD (PC) - Don't sign into G4WL or have it set to auto-log in.
Put it into Offline Mode so you have an Offline Profile.

Though, you really should play this online - as the players online give you a constant barrage of messages to warn you and help you out; and so you can see other players' Bloodstains when they to die to see how they actually died.

Is it actually done like that w/ StarForce download version of the DRM?
Or not?

I think people are blowing 60 FPS Dark Souls:PtD out of proportion. When uncapping the 30 FPS you are subjecting yourself to some large variable FPS. The game's coding/phyics doesn't work perfectly when uncapped. I'd suggest you try it at 30 FPS before worrying about it.

Sliding down ladders can make you fall through the ground. Workaround: don’t slide down ladders with unlocked FPS.
Jumping/rolling distance is slightly reduced at 60 FPS. Workaround: in case you need to do one of the 2 or 3 jumps in the game that need maximum distance, use the new toggle key to toggle a 30 FPS limit for the jump, then toggle back to 60 after it.
Slope interactions are slightly different at 60 FPS compared to 30, which may make you “stuck” at small obstructions from time to time. Workaround: rolling if there is space, walking back and forth a bit if there is not. Toggling the 30 FPS lock for a second in the worst case.

No, it's not done with the download version of StarForce. It would require seriously sensitive scientific instruments, on the order of Gravity Probe B or LISA.

kind of upset that i couldn't get prototype 2 to run at over 7 fps. my laptop runs games like SR3 and sleeping dogs perfectly fine but prototype was completely unplayable. maybe i should just build a 'home theatre pc" as i only ever use it plugged into my tv nowadays.

here's my specs:

i7 q 740 @ 1.74ghz
4 gig ram
mobility radeon hd 5730

you guys think i need to upgrade to play the new games coming out going forward? sorry for going OT here

gives you a rough idea of where your graphics card falls in terms of performance, below most Nvidia 8800 series cards. Quite a ways below a GTX 260 or 4850.

The numbering of most mobile graphics, has no relevance to the desktop edition numbering

Thanks for the heads up... You know, those other games are either so bad (Homefront) or off my radar (Stalker? Metro?) that I'd honestly rather spend $4 on Space Marine alone and save the other $5 for something else.

I was unsure about getting this before, but you have convinced me to give it a try. Sounds awesome!

You should be fine for games that are optimized for PC but console ports that are not like Prototype 2 are giving people problems even on better systems. If you can find a AMD 7000 series for cheap it wouldn't hurt though.

What are the must have dlcs for Civilization 5?

I only plan on using one civ, as thats the way I normally play my games.... (ie: Age of empires only used the Korean Civ, likewise in Civ series.)

Gods and Kings seems like a must...but are the map packs and scenarios worth it?

I haven't played Stalker, but I LOVE Metro 2033 (although I know they are from the same developers). Highly underrated and missed gem. Although not the newest game, you'd be surprised at how demanding the game can be graphically even on the most expensive rigs. Great game, not perfect, but thoroughly a good time. Can't wait for the sequel.

Metro 2033 developers (4A Games) are NOT the same developers of STALKER series ( GSC Game World). From Wikipedia

The company was formed in Kiev, Ukraine. It was founded by former employees of GSC Game World, a year before the release of S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl, in particular Oles Shyskovtsov and Oleksandr Maksymchuk, the programmers who worked on the development of the X-Ray engine used in the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series.[3] They developed the 4A Engine for Metro 2033.

For me:
Metro 2033: 10/10 game. Linear.
STALKER Series: 7/10. Open world, really buggy.
