I just saw Fallout Collection was on sale!. I loved Fallout 2, but never played FO1/FO:T (don't know why). I'm thinking about getting them on Steam, but seems you have to do some work to get it working right. (high res, color problems...).

The GOG version are better?

Thanks! The problem is that some say this could be the last sale on those games (maybe they would fade from steam), because Interplay is about to loose the rights.

On other things... I was trying Lucius. Is not a bad game... but is TOO SLOW!. Even load times are ridiculous. Everybody is talking about it and the developers didn't fix it. That means the game will stay as it is. Is a shame, it had potential. I think I'll eventually finish the game because I like The Omen, but is a bit of a pain to play.

Not sure if intentional, but that's a key for Hearts of Iron 3. Tried to redeem it and already own it lol.

EDIT: Redeemed the new/corrected key. Thanks!

This is what everybody said on the last day of the Xmas sale when I asked about it.

Then everybody went out and bought it anyway.

'cept me.

There's only horse meat in that kebab, kinda a relief, innit?

I'm honestly hoping that you're joking.

I don't know if its been discussed yet but I figured I'd mention it in case anyone else was waiting for it. The Republic and other newer DLC for Crusader Kings II is finally on sale. It didn't have the 75% off like the game and the rest of the DLC had when the Linux sale started.

Smarter to ask around on the Amazon thread, since it was all in a huge bundle.

8800 GT still runs everything I throw at it without much issue.

It was a solid card, and it may come as a shock to some, but graphics haven't been improving all that rapidly in the last half-decade.

But as to was I joking about getting gains from the new drivers?

Yes.

If you are running a 8800GT you are running games at a low res and/or not have any bells and whistles turned out. I had a 8800 GTX and that thing was dragging ass when I needed upgraded to a GTX 260

I'm guessing some people have low standards. I have a computer (that I no longer use) that uses a 8800gtx and Metro 2033 runs like crap, no matter what its set to. The game is brutal, even for high-end PCs.

640X480 with the lowest settings possible? If it is still running like crap then I would probably say that either the graphics card is messed up, your view of crap is considerably different than most, or it isn't the graphics card that is making the game run like crap. EDIT: It could also mean the game was made terribly as well.

I always cringe when I see people get a new fangled graphics card yet are still running with a really old cpu and low amount of RAM especially when they use a resolution like 1280x720.

My standards are it runs smoothly.

Really not interested in how much anti-aliasing I can swing and such.

I'm also on a monitor that's 1680x1050, so that helps.

But most big budget games released in the last year or so still run fine at around medium settings.

I consider that a fine trade-off for still using a GFX card that I got for $140 in 2007.

The game was optimized kinda poorly. I don't remember the exact res that I ran it at, but I did try it at the lowest settings. I think I tried running it from 1280x720 up to 1680x1050. There wasn't anything wrong with my GPU, I just don't expect games like that to run "fine" on an old GPU, even on lowest settings. The same applies to Crysis 1.

Running a game at 640x480 is like, the definition of crap, even if you're getting 100+ FPS.

Crysis 1, at least, ran great for me when it came out at a mixture of medium and high settings.

Again, though, 1680x1050.

I'll install Metro sometime soon and tell you guys how that turns out, though. :)

I have to know how you got it to run great when Crysis 1 came out lol. I had a 8800gtx when the game released in that time period and I don't think I got above 30 FPS with medium/high settings. It was more like around 20-25 FPS average.. and my max res was 1680x1050 back then (old/now dead monitor)

Yes.



^_^ I know what you mean. I'm still running my GTX 260. I upgraded from 1680x1050 to 1920x1200 a little over a year back with little consequence. (though my older 2209wa does support up to 76 MHz) I can afford to upgrade (whole computer at this point), I haven't run into a solid reason yet.

If you are running a 8800GT you are running games at a low res and/or not have any bells and whistles turned out. I had a 8800 GTX and that thing was dragging ass when I needed upgraded to a GTX 260



Hmm, interesting, since I'm still running a GTX 260. A core 216 555nm factory overclocked GTX 260, but that's probably splitting hairs at this point. That said, the GTX 650 Ti benchmarks quite similarly.

I'm guessing some people have low standards. I have a computer (that I no longer use) that uses a 8800gtx and Metro 2033 runs like crap, no matter what its set to. The game is brutal, even for high-end PCs.



My old gaming PC AMD X2 3800 / 7900GT was no longer cutting it in early '09 (at three years old, iirc, when I got my current Phenom II 720 BE / GTX 260. Metro 2033 is very much a corner case, it's so poorly optimized it's used as a benchmark. The only game I own that I want to play and haven't found a happy compromise is Shogun 2 (another known problem child), sure, if I kick it's settings down it runs fine, but I'm talking happy compromise (looking good and staying over 30 fps).
