that's kind of cool then.  i loved revisiting saints row to see how the neighborhood had changed.  tbh, other than some of the structures in crackdown 1, i don't really remember the city landmarks.

i would assume that something interesting has been done to the agency building though.

i can't even access the steam store, wow.
CeeKay took EVERYTHING, Steam doesn't have anything left to sell!  icon_eek icon_lol

I swear, once my Steam games list hits 300 I'm done! icon_lol

I'm only at 110 (including the 30 games in the complete Popcap collection)

that makes my 71 feel a bit better.  but not by much.  at least 30 of those were due to my winter sale mistake though and several were rebuys to avoid the physical media.

that might be the best way to play it or you'll have higher level smacktards joining up to grief you and mess with your game. 

keeping my fingers crossed that it will be in the mail soon.

for anyone looking to snag this, kmart is having a launch day sale.  a $20 credit on other MS stuff.  not as good as a price drop, but still money in your pocket and a good way to save on getting a live card if your sub has expired.

went back and picked up civ IV complete, despite having the original CE in the box.  colonization sounds like fun and i'll be able to see what that whole "fall from heaven 2" mod is about.

passed on star wolves after spending some time looking at the reviews.  sounds like wasted potential mixed with some fun, but after this sale, i had to stop somewhere.  also held back on crazy machines 2;  have enough puzzle games already.
6806  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (07/05) on: July 05, 2010, 08:17:24 AM
hopefully getting "super plumber butt arrow number", as ceekay put it, via gamefly.  sent both games in a week early to make sure at least one of them was back before this week.

wow, guess i was a little bored eh?

tbh, i was getting a little antsy towards the ends there, like i had to get online by 10 to post the deals. 

nothing quite like being out of work these days.
6811  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: If you like your wallet DO NOT GO TO STEAM. Summer sale! on: July 04, 2010, 05:12:05 PM
Max and the Magic Marker
Beat Hazard
Monkey Island Complete Pack
Chrome: Specforce
Zeno Clash
Audiosurf
Puzzle Kingdoms

here's what i picked up.  some good gaming and some good budget gaming as well.  should keep me occupied for a while and i was able to keep from buying everything on a whim. 

6812  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: If you like your wallet DO NOT GO TO STEAM. Summer sale! on: July 04, 2010, 05:07:40 PM

So is this the last of the sales?  Am I safe to go out and pick up Kings Bounty Gold for $10?

i think there is one last day, but it's likely to be a re-hash of some of the previous sales. 
6815  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: If you like your wallet DO NOT GO TO STEAM. Summer sale! on: July 03, 2010, 05:30:55 PM
their timing is odd when it comes to the switchover.  i forgot to buy shatter until 9:50 the morning after it went on sale and tried to get it.  said 2.50 in the screen, but jumped to 10 when i tried to buy it.  the new stuff hadn't even gone on sale yet. 
6816  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: If you like your wallet DO NOT GO TO STEAM. Summer sale! on: July 03, 2010, 05:07:23 PM
today's deals:

Sam & Max: the Devil's Playground - $17.49
Just Cause 2 - $24.99
BF: BC2 - $33.49
DMC4 - $7.50
Freedom Force pack - $1.87
Mount & Blade - $10.20
Metro 2033 - $24.99
World of Goo - $5.00
Portal - $1.99

likely in with sam & max

looks like borderlands is still at 10.19 in case you missed yesterday's sale.  dlc is still on sale too.  in fact, it looks like the sales from yesterday are still in effect, at least for a while.  

it's been scrapped, as expected.
6817  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Playlist - 07/02/10 - Happy Independence Day Edition! on: July 02, 2010, 09:53:39 PM
likely some bioshock 2 and maybe red dead coop.

still playing bits and pieces of the other games, but nothing has really caught me lately.

plan on trying some of the games bought during the steam sale.
6818  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Max and the Magic Marker on: July 02, 2010, 08:33:26 PM
picked it up and played the first two levels.  really enjoying it so far and imho, it's a better game than crayon physics.  there is more than just getting two items to meet which gives you more to work on.  there are the added challenge of enemies and collectibles and different objects in the world to interact with. 
6819  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Steam warning on: July 02, 2010, 07:31:18 PM
part of their delay may be due to the massive sale going on now, but i have heard of people having issues getting support from them in the past. 

6820  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: I need more music like this, please on: July 02, 2010, 07:28:08 PM
check to see if slacker is available in your country.  i actually like it's music matching abilities better than when i tried pandora. 
6821  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Crackdown 2 on: July 02, 2010, 07:25:12 PM
well that's odd. 

can't wait til next week.  seeing purge playing this is making me jealous. 

purge, how does it compare to the first one?  i've played the demo and enjoyed it even though you don't have enough time to get to the cooler stuff.
6822  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: If you like your wallet DO NOT GO TO STEAM. Summer sale! on: July 02, 2010, 06:54:56 PM
i played through all of the Empires at war campaigns and they were all very fun, even though i tired of the land assaults towards the end and just moved the death star around to eliminate the pesky rebel bases. 

the smuggler campaign was my favorite though.  rebel, not so much.

i also picked up max and the magic marker after watching the video.  it's like crayon physics but better. 
6823  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: If you like your wallet DO NOT GO TO STEAM. Summer sale! on: July 02, 2010, 05:27:19 PM
agreed, but i thought they would have had a better deal on it, and crysis for that matter.

at least you can get borderlands with all the dlc for around 20 bucks.  imo, a much better value for the money.
6824  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: If you like your wallet DO NOT GO TO STEAM. Summer sale! on: July 02, 2010, 05:08:47 PM

6826  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Saddle up! The Red Dead Redemption impressions thread. on: July 01, 2010, 05:19:59 PM
finished the coop missions last night and man the river was a pita.  20 minutes and almost 200 enemies.  got to expect the respawning enemies, but i hate that they just show up on the map without warning.  every time we died it was due to someone running down on us and getting us in a crossfire. 

worst part of it was getting incapped and then falling back into the water where you couldn't be revived.  that's a pretty stupid thing to happen

i was always fond of disassembling them and keeping the platters around the desk, as a warning to the new ones, if you will. 

i did learn through this that if you smack a platter with a hammer, it will leave pixie dust and potentially dangerous glass dust on your desk. 
6837  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: Very frustrating wireless connection issue on: July 01, 2010, 04:08:52 AM
sounds like you have a problem with DNS entries not being sent from the router.  check your configuration on the computers for DNS entries other than the router (likely, a 192.168.x.1 address depending on default config)  if you aren't seeing some form of outside dns entry, then that explains why your network is good while the web is not.
it will also show you if you are getting an IP conflict. 

with many routers, you can assign an address for each machine by mapping it to their MAC address.  that way you don't have to worry about manually assigning it to your laptop.  this will reduce work if you have to take the laptop to another location and then rely on their network.  i do this with both wired and wireless devices in my house.

we have phones that do everything you could want mobile (gps, games, IM, voip, camera, video), home entertainment boxes that game/video on demand/social network/media hub and cameras that double as HD video recorders. 

it seems that everything these days is destined to do a bazillion features rather than specialize.  so long single use devices.  you will not be missed.
