is Rage any good? cant decide if i want to pick it up for 5 bucks.


Good, but not great. Could've and should've been great - but, it's not.

The story is nothing special; and the ending is down-right terrible and actually worse than ME3's ending.
Though, this game has the best and coolest characters I've seen in an Id game.

Recycled areas for side-missions is not a good thing, either - and this is one of the major problems w/ this game. You'll feel like you've went through many of these areas before - b/c you've often explored them in the main quest!
Also, it can be a pain in the butt to just game actually looking and running well - if you actually can succeed at this.

Though, if you like Id-style shooters and combat - you'll see this is what this game is fantastic at.

Also, keep in mind - RAGE is like over 20 GB in size...

Yo everyone! I found this amazing german site where you can buy games. Today and tomorrow they have a couple of them on sale for just 1 euro each. As far as I know they all come with steam codes (I bought Saints Row 2 and it gave me a steam code). Not all of the games (in fact a lot) are really interesting though I think.

You can pay with paypal. You'll have to make an account though.

Enjoy!

(Be warned though, when I entered the key it said I was activating "Saints Row 2 (DE)" but I have no idea if the game will be in german then...)


NVM! All crappy german stuff

yeah i'm starting to get the impression that stealth no-kill is not the way to play dishonored
(i guess i should replay human revolution for that)


I played stealth so horribly. I need to replay it for that.

Most of that Dishonored game, it was High Chaos for me - and I had a blast w/ it. When doing combat, the game reminded me a lot of the Bioshock-style gameplay - with weapons and magic at your fingertips.

God, Dishonored was awesome...

Ace of Spades is virtually unplayable on my laptop, which is surprising considering what this laptop can play perfectly fine. Textures aren't loading fully and I'm getting probably 5 FPS. It's awful.

EDIT: Yep, even on the lowest graphic settings, it's unplayable. I wasted $3.74. Oh well.

I used it and it's rarely failed me.... at least it gets me in the ballpark... some games have issues that are GAME issues and not necessary system requirement issues (bad optimization, etc).

System Requirements Lab is not a very good site. It's meant for people who have next to no clue what's actually in their computer. You're generally far better off just googling the make or details of your laptop and the game's name. Laptops are generally not very easy for people (or sites like that) to give accurate advice on.

You forgot "Black Magic".

Or am I the only one who paid extra for that? It's a Gateway. So maybe that's why....

Yeah that sounds about right. Even the DRM free version at GOG.com is over 20GB + 3-4GB of "extras".

Steam updated their version to have all extras that the GOG version has, the extras actually come in around 6.5 gigs now. GOG did have 3 extra mp3's for the OST though.

Never really trust systemlabs, it is after all a site that makes money off linking you to upgrade sites, my laptop which can play a lot of games on max perfectly fine, isn't able to run a single game on min settings according to that site.

I need someone who's knowledgeable with monitors to help me with this issue. I bought this monitor: http://www.amazon.co...rds=ASUS VE248H.

I'm having some extremely weird issues with it. When I hooked up my PS3 with it, I'd get random black screens. For example, the game would work fine, but when I hit the PS button to bring up the XMB menu, the screen would go back until I'd hit the PS button to get out of that screen. It also happens on Hotline Miami. The game loads fine, but when the game actually starts, it goes to a black screen. I can still hear the game playing and the monitor is still on, but it's black. It works again when I press start and go into the menu. For the record, I'm using HDMI and I have tried different cables.
