    according to their site graphic cards, and memory wont affect it, anything else is likely to hit you up
    Answer: With regards to the activation system, a PC configuration consists of the most important hard- and software components of your computer, including the operating system, the CPU, the motherboard and the system hard drive. Small changes such as exchanging the graphics card or adding RAM are not considered changes to the PC configuration and therefore do not require a new activation.

    I might not have conveyed it properly, but I'm fairly sure I've said to get Burnout Paradise every time it's been on sale.

    I sure wish Anno 2070 wasn't 30$. That's sitting right outside my impulse range. I've wanted an Anno game since they took the old one off Steam before could snag it.


    Choices.

    I'm glad so many people are loving Burnout Paradise. It's my favorite racing game of all time, and I really hope a proper sequel is in store down the road.

    so is it not possible to buy a four pack when you already own the game? package info even says 'send the extra copies to your friends'.

    Am I just not looking in the right place, or does Best Buy not carry any of the cheap USB wireless dongle to use a wireless XBox controller with my PC? I've got a $25 giftcard.

    Agreed. Just a super fun game, and I usually am not a fan of the open world style. The fact that it's so fast, and yet crams so much stuff to do into it, really makes it good times.

    So I know that it's against serving the Newell but ME1 and 2 are 50% off on Origin, odds are these will never ever go on sale on Steam right?

    The DRM is 3 installs. 1 wears out every month so if you install it 3 times in a month, you'll have to wait a month before you can again.

    Anything else I'm missing?

    I didn't know you got one install back every months, which makes it slightly better. Unfortunately for me is that I'll immediately take up two installs, one on my main machine and the other on my laptop.

    Huh? They were on sale recently (as in: something like December or January) for their usual $5 for each.
    (In fact, I'm waiting for another one to give a gift to someone. Just not Origin.)

    So in Valve related and fairly unsurprising news: The Portal 2 Puzzle creator is currently in beta, and it's also going to be using Steam Workshop to distribute the levels / any other mods being made. Later on Valve intend to introduce Steam Workshop to Left 4 Dead as well (I'm presuming they mean the 2nd one).

    http://www.pcgamer.com/2012/03/14/portal-2-puzzle-creator-in-beta-testing-now-will-use-steam-workshop/

    A one-stop listing for mods, and instead of obtuse install processes, literally just click, download and play. This is something I like very much. Reminds me a bit of Torchlight's mod interface "Tochleach".

    Come to think of it, I wonder whether it's too late for Torchlight 2 to go with some kind of Steam Workshop implementation.

    So after playing a bit of Burnout today, I go to play it again, pick up my controller and nothing... Unplug/Plug it back in different USB ports and all I get is the 4 led's in a circle light up and then go out. It's a MadCatz 360 pad, and it's only a few years old, and has only seen very mild use. If it's alt least getting power(I assume by the lights flashing on and off) is there anything anyone can suggest to fix it?

    I've had this happen. A simple restart of my computer fixed it.

    I tried that first, and still the same thing. Plugged the thing into a laptop and the same thing. Thank for the advice though.

    As has already been said, it's a free weekend for Dungeon Defenders. If you haven't played this game yet, you should. It is wonderful and awesome and great and you can play with quite a few fellow arcadians.

    I will likely be around to play some low level stuff, and I would be happy to serve as a tutorial for any of you who are new to the game. Join the steam chat and/or message me if you're interested.

    The only one that's a must have is the one that isn't on sale. The others are amusing but not really necessary.

    Kinda noticed a few people with 1 comment, and very few months in service grabbing things as of late. Though it's not up to me to say who can give what to whom, I am just pointing out that it seems quite a few people are grabbing up the 'free keys' that haven't really been a 'part' of the community.

    For that to be a real concern would require a pretty intense and constant monitoring of the thread to grab a key that quickly.

    I mean, I suppose you could set it up so you receive every reply to the thread via e-mail and then have a filter that alerts you if it contains a key or a steamgifts.com link.

    Maybe.

    If you are looking to get into Dungeon Defenders (due to the free weekend and the sale), while 50% isn't the best price ever, the price is still pretty decent. If the game hooks into you after the free weekend, 7.50 is a good price for the game, and gives you a lot of content. The only DLCs that are worth purchasing are the character DLCs (the Barbarian Hero DLC and New Heroes DLC) and pre-ordering the Lost Eternia Shards Complete DLC, but with the following recommendations:
    * The Barbarian Hero is neat, and adds a Hero/DPS-based character that has NO towers. You would not be able to solo with him, but he's fun to play in a group. Get this pack if you find that you prefer melee over building towers when playing with friends.
    * The New Heroes DLC adds a gender swap to each of the heroes. By default you have a Male Squire, Female Huntress, Male Apprentice, and Male Monk. The New Heroes DLC adds a Female Countess (Squire), Male Ranger (Huntress), Female Adept (Apprentice), and Female Initiate (Monk). The gender swaps have slightly different abilities, but with the exception of the Countess (who is widely considered one of the best Assault map characters), these changes are not significant in terms of gameplay. Get this pack if you want a character that is the opposite gender of your favorite class.
    * The Lost Eternia Shards DLC - If you get this, you should preorder all 4 DLC, as it unlocks the highest difficulty for all maps. It also adds exclusive (as in, non-shareable... you can't leech off of someone who bought it) Campaign and Challenge maps (1 campaign and 2-3 challenge maps per chapter). I think it also gives you access to the Assault Pack DLC for free. Only the first 2 chapters are out right now. I wouldn't pick this up unless you are ready for Nightmare mode or you've exhausted the content available in the main game. It is not on sale, and not likely to ever go on sale until all 4 parts are released. But it's the best DLC pack available right now.

    No, but the AI is pretty terrible, so the single player is really only worth playing long enough to learn the mechanics.

    I know that some of you folks are buying the indie royal bundle that already have Hard Reset. If you pass one of your extra keys my way, I'd be more than happy to trade for a month of PS+ to anybody that has a PS3, or at least pay it forward.
