Must be kind of like window-shopping: look, but don't buy.
yea, like window shopping at the dollar tree on the bad side of town

I half disagree with this. Yes GTA IV took it's self way too seriously to it's own detriment. Vice City & San Andreas, while having thematic stories didn't feel all serious bidness. No clue on GTA V.
One downside of the GTAs for someone who just wants a sandbox is the need to progress the main story to unlock areas of the map.
A lot of that has changed with V. Sure at points it tries to act like its telling some serious story but there are humorous moments, and the online component and missions are not serious at all. Many of the characters are there to provide levity and not be taken seriously. So its much more like the older ones where it can poke fun at itself. Even some of the dialogue pokes fun at how forced dialog is in some of these games.
V also did away with the map unlock stuff, the whole map is unlocked from the beginning

Are these new Star Trek games any good? I am a big fan of ToS, but came late to the party, so I have never tried or heard of any of these.
I dont remember which one but I remember playing one of them (probably 25th anniversary since that looks more familiar) when I was younger. I do remember enjoying it since I was more in to adventure games back then
I just hope this means ST Armada is coming, those were some good rts games

Makes me wonder how I got some of these games, looks like i have 4 out of these. PA was a dissapointment though, at least I got it from our russian friends when that was still an option but I didnt expect it to end up a bundle either

GOG galaxy now in beta for ALL
One feature I wish they'd talk more about is crossplay. Apparently they are allowing play between both steam and gog versions of games. Interested to see which games added multiplayer as well since the last time I tried the alpha I didnt really see any

I only use Microsoft Security Essentials. And also run Malwarebits from time to time.
MSE since it came out is the only one that I have never seen suck up a ridiculous amount of cpu and memory. Always performed better for me than any of the third party solutions. It stays out of the way and I never know that its actually doing anything besides the occasional taskmgr peek, IMHO how an anti-virus should be

except the majority of games ive tried that were installed via galaxy dont actually open correctly with galaxy. Either get a missing 'lnk' file error, dosbox immediately exits, or some other variations of quick exits. Looks like it just doesnt setup the environment correctly when it launches
Guess that doesnt matter much if your not trying to play them though

gtx 780 are probably comparable to a gtx 970 in the nvidia line
yup, friend of mine has a 780 and I have a 970. He has a much more recent proc, i7-2600k vs his i5-4690 though the 2600 still beats it in many benchmarks, but we both get similar performance out of games.

TTR is awesome, especially the digital version. You can knock a game out in 10min or less so its a great one for pooping at work as well if you fancy getting the android/ios versions. The good thing about the humble ones is usually you can activate your steam key on their site and it will unlock all the same things on the android and web versions as well
