    Never had a computer to play Crysis until now. Never played Crysis // WarHead for $9.99, yes and thank you!

    Am I a fool for hoping VtM: Bloodlines goes on sale sometime during this?

    Direct2Drive, or at least the UK version, semi-recently had it on sale, so stranger things have happened.

    So did anyone pick up extra copies of super meat boy for gifting/trading? I mistakenly passed on it not knowing much about it and have watched a bunch of videos since and feel as though I have made a terrible error.

    If anyone has a copy I would gladly trade theme for something of similar price tbd, or pay it forward with something to another needing person as the sale continues.

    Got a couple questions for IL-2 Sturmovik players.

    1) Is a 360 controller suitable? I'm not too keen to buy a joystick.

    2) The screenshots Steam provides aren't very flashy. However, I came across a trailer for the console-exclusive sequel, which looks much prettier.

    Are there any mods that would make IL-2 Sturmovik 1946 look more like that?

    1. Don't bother without a joystick.

    2. Birds of Prey is not console exclusive and it's been a daily deal during this sale twice already (once last week and on the sunday best-of).

    I can't find Birds of Prey on Steam at all, only 1946. Would you mind linking it?

    I think he meant the kludgily-titled Wings of Prey.

    Yes, that's what I meant, sorry about that. The PC version of Il-2: Birds of Prey was renamed Wings of Prey for some reason. I didn't realize that the console version had a different title or even existed until just now, so I can't blame anybody for being confused.

    there's no co-op, as far as i know.

    Which is the biggest freaking travesty of that game. The game would be absolutely phenomenal with two-player co-op. Crytek said they could have gone that direction, but instead they wanted to make their pseudo battlefield clone instead.

    If Crysis had 2-player online co-op, I'm certain that alone would have propelled its sales even higher still. And yet, they're not even putting co-op into the sequel either.

    It's just such a sad wasted opportunity, especially when they say it's something they could achieve, but that they think trying to compete with the big boys of competitive FPS's is the better idea. Other games barely give their co-op players space to breath. Crysis gives you access to whole islands, and makes things like distractions to draw people away from bases, setting up traps and ambushes, and generally more tactical play a real possibility.

    No biggie, I had no idea Wings of Prey was even related to IL-2, let alone was actually IL-2: Birds of Prey retitled. Wings of Prey just makes it sound like some potentially iffy shovelware or something.

    Couple of problems with Crysis.

    1) Alt-Tabbing out changes Crysis to windowed mode for some reason. Fix?

    2) Any way to make the iron sights hold instead of toggle?

    3) Ninja Snarl said he changed some of the energy consumption etc variables in his Let's Play. How can I do that? :P

    It's so nice having a computer that can actually run things without exploding.

    Global Agenda:

    ...So, did the initial training missions and putzed around a bit. There still seems to be many manz in the hub area I was in. I was in no shortage of bros to brofist, as it were.

    That was surprisingly fun, though. It reminds me a lot of Oni (Oh yes, blast from the /past/ there.) and I liked how I could putz around as recon and abuse my rifle to pick off security bots from several rooftops away before waltzing over to go where I needed to go. Its fast, responsive and I had no problem with the build of the recon character or how it controlled third person.

    Of course, this was only a brief putz about, but it shows very solid promise (And has in game achievements which spurs on the achievement whore in me.)

    Don't let the lack of co-op put you off, it's still a really good game.

    I'd at least advise trying the demo.

    Just throwing it out there that Living Legends has just released its 4.0 beta, so if you are a Mechwarrior nerd and/or love piloting huge robots, you might want to think about getting that Crysis pack.

    This version works with Crysis Wars too, so it does take advantage of the better netcode than vanilla Crysis.

    Crysis is, what, three years old? And it still makes my computer go CHUGCHUGCHUGCHUG. I swear I can still smell the burning fans as my video card slowly chokes to death trying to play that game. And I can play pretty much everything else, including up to the latest releases in games, juuuuust fine. God that game was a resource hog.

    Now that said it was a very pretty resource hog with a decent campaign. Just don't get too attached to your video card.

    1) Try hitting alt-enter, it's the default command to force a window into fullscreen.

    2) There should be an option called "simple ironsights". Enabling that will remove the toggle.

    3) This guide should help you change the suit values.

    At this point it's in the "probable vaporware" category. :(

    Hmm. Well, better lurking under the radar than flat-out on a slab, I suppose.

    Speaking of which, is that Mektek release still using that retarded download client bullshit for all their stuff, or have they finally given up on it and thrown stuff up for FTP download? I've always wanted to snag it, but all the nasty reports about it've kept me at pole's length.
