Second, I think the negative, potentially=violent rhetoric IS even from both sides. One look back during the Bush Administration easily equals what is going on today.

Your turn.

My father had prostate pain. Claimed ceasing his caffeine-intake eliminated it. I don't know if this is any way relevant to your situation, but I thought I'd throw it out there just in case.

Well, I found a workaround to get rid of most of the stutter. I tab out of the game, open up msconfig and assign "high priority" to the game. For whatever reason, that's made it playable.

I still have to run it at much lower settings than I would have hoped, but I'm actually killing goblins now!

cc, do you have a pc you can try it on?  i believe if you buy the mac version, you have access to the pc version as well. 
I actually am running it on the pc side of my mac via bootcamp. Sorry I forgot to mention that...

Oh well, I have several other games in the backlog that seem to run fine. I guess I'll move on to those.

I bought this during the Steam sale. It was the most I paid for any game, and the one I was most looking forward to diving into. Unfortunately, I can't get the game to run smoothly. There is this peculiar choppiness that occurs during movement... it mostly looks like the movement of the ground skips frames while everything else looks ok. It's really disorienting. And the strangest thing is that it occurs independent of the graphic settings. Turning the resolution down, and limiting bells and whistles doesn't make a difference. I'm on a macbook pro w/ a geforce 9600m. Not the greatest set up, but definitely should be capable of running the game. I just played F:NV, alpha protocol and even mafia II w/o problems.

So, yeah... ugh. I probably should have tried the demo first. frown

might as well grab the Mafia 2 DLC since it's all 75% off.

What do you know about the DLC? Just more missions? How are they integrated? I'm nearing the end of Mafia II right now.

I'm also considering Divinity II, since I seem to recall some buzz about it in the PC games forum. I know you say to buy everything, Ceekay, but is this game worth $20? Is it a Gothic-type RPG? Those tend to be my favorites.

I'm still waiting for Mafia 2 to go on sale.

It's $12.50 for a digital copy from Amazon. You can purchase it there, but activate the license to download and play in Steam.

What type of game is King's Bounty?  Any good?

I love the series. It is turn based strategy very much like the Heroes of Might and Magic games, except instead of building up resources to defeat other enemies on the map, it is quest based w/ a much bigger emphasis on the battles than on resource development. I've put in over 100 hours into the series.

Definitely!

They have updates their list to include some more titles, including Mafia II for $12.50 and Bioshock 2 fo $5. I'm peeved about the latter, because I just dropped $10 on it on Steam a couple of days ago!

I just totalled up the amount I've spent so far, and I'm sitting at $118.60.  figuring the few things left that I want I should hit my earlier estimate of $200.
After the sale season is over, I'd really get a kick out of having you list your ENTIRE backlog. I'm starting to flex my index finger muscles now in preparation of some heavy use of my scroll wheel.  Tongue

Wow -  *every* Square Enix / Edios game on Steam for $75.

Arkham Asylum
Deus Ex Series
Hitman series
Just Cause 1 & 2
Kane & Lynch series
Tomb Raider titles
Thief: Deadly Shadows

and more

That is crazy....

The 2k pack blows my mind:

Bioshock
Bioshock 2
Civ III
Civ IV (plus expansions)
Mafia
Mafia II (plus DLC)
Borderlands (plus DLC)
NBA 2k10 & 11
All the Strongholds
All the XCOMs
And more...

All for under $80. That's a TON of gaming.

REM was transitioning into a much more radio-friendly band around that time, but I loved Out of Time and Automatic for the People all the same.

And, although I wasn't listening to them at the time, I now might have to nominate Uncle Tupelo.

I got all excited when I saw Mafia II was on the list, but was disappointed to see that it was just a 25% reduction. I think I'll wait until the Christmas sale to see if they beat it.

Are the Kings Bounty games fun?  The videos look cool!

I got completely sucked into the first two games... probably sunk a total of 100 hours into them combined. The Crossworlds expansion didn't do much for me, however. The two new mini-campaigns were short and simple, and I didn't see enough changes to the Armored Princess campaign to go through it again.

The "cancel" trick successfully got it downloading again, but w/o fail, it crashes sometime within the first 15 minutes of downloading.

I think I can say w/o reservation that I much prefer Steam.  icon_razz

Won't download for me. It started to the first time, but it crashed, and now it won't start again. It just says 0kb downloaded.

If you click "Cancel" instead of "Resume", it should allow you to download it again.  That's what I did after each time it crashed.
That worked! Thanks. I owe you a dime, good sir!

He came back out to the boards recently.

Zeke came out to the boards? That certainly is ironic. Fabulously so.
