Does anyone recommend any password managing software or methods? The talk in the Amazon thread freaked me out a bit. I saw a mac with a neat looking lockbox style interface, but I'm on a PC and function first of course.


I prefer LastPass since it does have the auto-login/autofill features as well as cloud storage, so I can access my passwords from anywhere I can log in to their website. There's also a mobile app you can use, but it costs a few bucks a year.

I'll throw my recommendation behind LastPass as well. The premium to get the mobile app usage is like $12 a year I believe but totally worth it in my mind.

i'm a lastpass user myself. I had previously used passwordsafe, which was good, but basic, lacking the cloud storage and autofill feature found in the more plugin/app style password managers, like lastpass and keypass. and for mobile, if your screen is big enough, you can easily log into the webpage though your browser to get your passwords if you don't want to pay for the app.

I use 1password myself the android app is lacking but the windows version is pretty sweet.

Way cheaper if you get it on Blackfriday or it's pretty pricey.

Ok, since I only have a few hours left to decide...The Witcher 1 & 2 or Dark Souls? I enjoy pretty much all types of RPG's. Any advice?

Those Lenovo Ideapad deals I keep seeing crop up are making me want one, even though my refurb Asus is going strong.

I bought my Lenovo Y580 due to some of those deals around 4 months back. I quite like it and haven't had any serious issues with the computer while gaming or otherwise. There have been a couple random glitches like Steam Overlays not loading on some games that do function properly on an AMD graphics card, but I think that's just spotty support for notebooks because almost everything runs smoothly even on high/ultra (other than PhysX applications in games which lag a bit during the calculations).

Having played none of them yet, I'd say always buy two games instead of one, so Witcher 1&2 :D

Yeah it is a tough game. Very satisfying though. I had a blast playing it and getting both the normal and secret endings. Gotta go back and get an A rank on every level/unlock all masks. Man that will be tough!

I'm loving this game.

I hear great things about The Witcher 2. The first game gets kind of meh comments about it. I haven't played either. I do own the first on PC and the second on the 360 but haven't touched either.

I have played Dark Souls on PS3 though and absolutely loved it. Very rough but very rewarding.

Personally I would choose Dark Souls, but because of pricing I say grab Witcher 1+2 and grab Dark Souls when it drops a bit more.

I too recommend LastPass. Im a long time user of it, and love it.

I never played Dark Souls, but Witcher 2 by itself is a great buy. I put 38.4 hours into the game to get all the achieves (except beating the game on the super hard mode). The game looks beautiful if you have a great rig too.

Everytime I see Anno 2070 I die a little inside. I can put up with uplay, but not tages.


Honestly, if they dropped TAGES I'd be on it in a hearbeat... UPlay or no.

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


If you like basic id shooters it's completely worth 5 bucks. Don't set your expectations much higher than that and you'll be fine.

The Witcher 1 is pretty awful. Witcher 2 a rather expansive game that is greatly improved on from the first.

That's what I said at first, then by the later levels I got pretty frustrated at random nonsense. Most annoying was the enemies ability to go all Neo on me when I had them dead to rights in a fatal funnel. I guess they don't make combat shotties like they used to.

Nope... I picked up a refurb K53TA exactly a year ago for $350. - http://forum.noteboo...ever-could.html

Upped it to 8gb of RAM, of course.

Seriously. I got stuck on level 3 (the one where you have to get the girl. I must have done the same "safe" routine - did not work. Then I read one of the loading hints saying something along the lines of "be reckless" and beat it on my first shot.

I have no idea what is going on in the game - I don't know why I am doing what I am doing. But its pretty fun doing it.

Am I the only person who used less than half of the steam wallet money they set aside for this winter sale? Only thing I picked up was the RPG maker. I didn't notice any other deals that weren't previously available in steam sales already. Super disappointing sale, not nearly enough 75% off.

Man, Witcher 1 was great. In some ways I liked it better than Witcher 2. W2 is a better game, overall, just some preference things. But I preferred both of them to Dark Souls (which was still a great game, but I just love the Witcher world/lore/etc).

I couldn't imagine tying up my money in Steam wallet or whatever. I'm not judging you, and for all I know you were given Steam giftcards or a Best Buy/Gamestop card and converted it into a Steam card but apart from that I need to keep my funds fluid for the sale seasons.

Agreed though that Steam's offerings this sale were for the most part very unimpressive.

I grabbed RPG maker immediately... everything else I bought for friends since anything cheap I already had. I still want a cheap Fallout 3 GOTY though...
