It didn't work on multicore processors? I've never seen a program like that, usually they'll just use 1 of the cores.

 

Yeah, it was weird. Just looking it up, it looks like the fix is just to set the affinity to one core, which is easy enough. Not sure why I didn't do that back in the day though. Oh well, $2.50 extra for one of the best games of all time won't hurt me :)

Looking at a couple games at the moment. Thinking about get Metro 2033 at the moment. besides that nothing is really interesting me at the moment. With Guild Wars 2 coming out soon, that where the majority of my playtime will be going.

Bought New Vegas, still debating on whether or not I will buy Cave Story +. I'll wait for the next DD's and see if anything deserves my money more.

I would say no. Humble bundle 6 (the previous one) had cave story+ included in it, and they've thrown humble bundle 1-4 up on the daily deals so far. So you can probably get it and like 6 other games if you wait.

So far I have gone for portal and portal 2 as a bundle. I am also looking at the hit man series, though I might just go for the last one. That series has been intriguing me for a while, but I've never bought any of them. So far deadspace 2 is the only game I've seen on sale that I already have, which is nice. I doubt it's the only one (and I never bought it on steam anyway), but it makes me a little sad. That said, I got more than my money's worth out of it, so I'll not be too upset.

 

And KOTR does indeed work on multicores off steam without issue, though that's one of my buyer remorse games. Not really enjoying that one at all. I didn't know how it worked, I thought it was more like Mysteries of the Sith but more epic, and I think that difference has hurt the game in my mind.

That's one you have to stick with for a while before it gets good.

My favorite part about Steam sales is how when one game goes on sale, the entire series takes on the same sale. They aren't trying to screw us at all. :thumbup:

I wanted to get the mount and blade games but it'll take about a day to transfer the monster form my bank to the O2 money card (so I can buy the games) :( The next community choice will be mirrors edge, I want that one as well but can't now fml

It's a bad idea to buy Test Drive Unlimited 2. I wasted $10 on that game, and it crashes even before it starts loading. Stupid game.

So is AOE 3 worth it? Is it a good game and is it better that AOE 2? Because my local Wal-Mart still stocks some copies of the complete AOE 2 collection that I could buy for $10.

Not as good as AOE2, but still pretty decent. I've never played the expansions though, so I don't know how those are.

For that price not a chance. A game that old should be at most £5. It's not as good as the other entries in the series and even if it was, it getting quite old now.

Bought Mount&Blade: Warband and Assassin's Creed II for a total of $10.

 

That should cover my gaming needs for a while.

AoE 2 Kings and Conquorers together is worth $10 I'd say. I have both, and they are my favourite RTS games after Red Alert 2. I also have AoE 3, and I do not like it nearly as much as it's predecessors. It's not like the jump from AoE 1 to 2, it's a fairly different game, and people who have not played its predecessors will probably enjoy it more.

 

Got the portal games last night (don't know if I said it, or just thought it a lot). Good games, though not very long. Together I think I will have my moneys worth though. I am also going to get episodes from liberty city, to get the lost and the dammed which I don't have. Cheaper than going through the microsoft store and their stupid points shop that coincidently only lets you buy denominations that don't match any of their prices (so that you have to overpay).

 

After that, I might keep an eye out for some more smaller games. I have decided to not get hitman. I have other games I am sure I would rather spend money on. Been looking at the Esther game, and it looks neat, but I guess it's also more of an interactive movie, and I already have Myst for exploring breath taking worlds (except the fourth one, because Myst isn't on steam :().

 

I'd get the whole gta pack but I don't think my computer will even run the 3rd one. I know my computer has a lot of trouble making vice city (which I got through steam) work, which is even more recent, so not something I want to risk money on, even if its only another $5 to get them all. Besides, I know its a rose tinted glasses situation, which is what I realized playing VC on my laptop (vista runs it better than win 7). Even SA has a lot of things that bug me now after playing IV, and I would rather leave III intact as the epic game it was, without ruinging it with the inevitable compairison to the latest games. It shall be imortalized as and awesome game with an awesome map, where by the time you were halfway through the game you couldn't explore half the places anymore without getting shot at :lol:

 

Also, there were entire guides dedicated to getting that stupid plane off the ground. Good times.

So oblivion, obviously I already have oblivion but my copy is a CD copy with only Kights of the nine and Shivering isles included. Is it worth the other DLC to rebuy the game on steam?

Unless if the game is less than five bucks, I don't think the DLCs are too worth it. You got KotN and Shivering Isles, the two biggest and best "DLCs" of the game.
