Very few of the HD collection ports that are all the rage these days tend to look any better than a PC version has been looking for years. The only real reason to buy them are if you only have consoles or the port was legendarily terrible like Devil May Cry 3.

Yeah there's no way that the PC versions look worse.. they're far superior. I do know that the PS3 version of Anniversary has better framerate than the 360 version (but both have crappy framerate, PS3's just sucks less). The textures for the PS3 trilogy were updated, so they might look a bit better than they did on 360.. but they aren't better than PC. PS3 trilogy has some advantages over the 360, but none over PC. I don't know why anyone would say they don't support high resolutions.. I run them at 1920x1200.

BTW if you do end up buying them on Steam, turn off Data Execution Protection for the 3 games. It causes some crashes with Legend, not sure about the other 2.


Thanks, I hadn't heard about that causing crashes. I'll likely be getting these on PC then.

Actually I tried the DMC3 port again a few weeks ago. 60 FPS solid on my gtx 260. Hardware caught up.:D

Ok. Tried the "Archive" option within the Gamestop Client to backup Planescape Torment. It succesfully created a .impulse file.

Then I tried the Restore option in the tools menu. I get a "archive could not be restored" message

It seems to be an OLD issue (https://forums.impul...iven.com/350804)

I created a post in the forums asking about this... but I can tell you... Unless I am doing something wrong, this is my first and LAST purchase from Gamestop. I don't like this

Looks like the Prototype pack from amazon last year was a waste for me. Prototype 1, after having a sudden difficulty spike where I couldn't even injure those creatures in the warehouse last night I restarted on easy, and now it runs around 5fps. I've played the game before on 360 so I know it's not that difficult, but that was just absurd. Throwing me against 5 of those large mutants when the only power I have is claw and the game forced permanent sprint so I couldn't pick up the rocket launchers like it wanted me to is just stupid.

I've also been playing Hotline Miami and am getting frustrated at map 13 where I cleared out two floors of the building and then get pushed outside the elevator, to midair. I can't reset the map and the only solution was to restart from the bottom floor. Grumble.

Thinking of Buying the Deus Ex collection, but only really interested in Deus Ex:HR, should I Just buy the solo game or are the DLC's worth getting as well?

IMO, the only DLC that is worth getting is The Missing Link. It's no ME2:LotSB, but still fairly solid at extending your HR experience. The others are just primarily in-game bonuses that you can live without. Even the extra mission in the Explosive Mission Pack is very minor. Though, if you're a fan, there's nothing wrong with getting them all (because that's what I did).

Alright so today I was playing CS:GO and for some reason, the game kept on randomly forcing me to look down or up. Is this normal? BTW I'm using a 360 controller if that matters.

I have no clue on the older DLC's for DE:HR...

...but Deus Ex: Human Revolution (base game) + Missing Link DLC are great stuff. :D

Deus Ex: HR (base game) is absolutely fantastic.
Missing Link DLC is actually one of the better DLC's out there, compared to most DLC's on the market.

That`s Funny
I remember two friends buying a new TV sealed in the Box from some shady dude
It did have a new remote control in package taped to the top of Box

Turned out to be a Box of Rocks....

If it`s too Good to be True. Its probably not


I find it difficult to believe that they wouldn't be able to tell the difference in weight distribution between a television and a box of rocks when lifting it.

These are guys that weren't tipped off when the remote was taped to the side of a sealed box.

The Squenix deals started and changeover in the evening.

Looking at when Tomb Raider's prices revert, expect the new sale in just under six hours.

This Square Enix thing seems to have the daily updating around 4 PM PST (WTF?). I can only assume that 10 AM is way too early to switch daily when you have the sorta hangover those guys do.

...either that or Gabe got sick of the "woe is me, I missed the Friday daily" tweets and decided to confuse everyone.

Common consensus is: "None".

There's some support for the content DLC such as the zombie thingy at North Point, but anything such as outfits etc. seems like a waste. Save your pennies.

That's kinda boring. Where's the excitement?
Where's the steam key roulette?
No Hunted: The Demon's Forge, no deal.
You know what goes really well with Skyrim? DOOM3 BFG. ;)
I hope they at least send out random cancellations.
In for a 20% off all steam purchases in 2013.

Well ain't that a kick in the nads? Even the PS3 version is getting 50% off for the first week. Granted PS3 players have had a to wait an eternity for any DLC for Skyrim, but still that's a little sour to not offer some sort of discount for PC.

After beating the game, I came to the conclusion that none of the DLC I purchased was worthwhile. There are costume and car unlocks mostly, but I found that it took away a bit from the experience of being able to purchase my own stuff. Also, I started the game out on level 5 for Triad, Police, and Face XP, so I was already fully upgraded halfway through the game.

Nightmare in North Point sucked...not worth wasting money and 90 minutes for. I didn't buy Zodiac Tournament (have no plans to either).

Yep, those are my exact thoughts as well. Cash is pretty much useless if you have the DLC. There's a way to remove the unlock/XP boost DLC by deleting a few files in the game directory, which would've made it so you don't start out at level 5.

Nightmare in North Point wasn't fun at all, I just wanted it to end.
