I was seriously considering selling it and mailing it tomorrow because, quite frankly, I just don't have time for real long-winded games.  My gaming time is very spurt like and usually only in tiny increments.  So, unlikely I would ever finish it.

you might be able to make a nice amount on eBay...

Although I bought both Brothers in Arms games and even the Halo PC port (so I'm not some anti-Gearboxx troll, truly), I truly think Randy Pitchford spends too much time bragging about how great their next games are going to be and not enough time working on making it so.  disgust Tongue

well, I'm about to start Act 5.  I know I missed some cards in Act 4 (at least 3 that I know of) but I figure I can try for those on my next playthrough.  I have to say the teleports in Act 3 spoiled me, but I got used to running around again in Act 4 (which is a huge area).

One thing I noticed is that it seems like getting meteor metal for the steel sword seems to be pretty useless.  From what I've seen the meteor one cannot compare to the steel sword I found and the one I bought later on.

I saw a new sword off the elves/dwarves, but i picked up the wrong one (the Blue something). It turned out the sword i left behind sells from the Vendor for 1500!! Hopefully i'll see it again.

Anyone buy the 5000 armor? I just did in Chap III and now i'm broke again. Ah well, no sex until i do more quests biggrin

Yeah I have that armor.  Scrounged, gambled, and monster hunted until I could afford it.  I honestly can't tell much of a difference, but it has 2 potion slots instead of 1...so 1 more precious inventory space!

Holy crap, i didn't even notice that. Shows how tired i was last night. Played until the game crashed. Silently wept and went to sleep.

ah, so that explains where the other slot came from.  As I finish up act 4 I'm finding I have Orens come out the wazoo (at least 6000, and I spend probably 4000 during the act).

You can't just forge the metorite to the new swords you found?  I've been holding off on getting my sword reforged until I found a better sword to act as a "base". 

as far as I can tell (from the stats given when I choose the forge option) it creates a brand new sword.

I've had one lovely bug come up from time to time - the level loads in COMPLETELY dark. As if there isn't an ounce of ambient lighting PERIOD. The only source of light until I restart the game (as zoning in/out doesn't work) is to keep firing - the lighting 'effects' from my gun hitting the ground, along with the mini-map, allow me to see enough of the level to progress.

actually that sounds kind of cool..... if there wasn't a targeting reticule it could give the level a whole new sense of dread.

I just saw a top of the line PC on Attack of the Show that had a 1100 watt power supply.  That is freaking lunacy.  Of course my system still has something like 300 or 350W, so I have no clue. 

Yea, I don't see a need for the 1KW PSU they had - this'll handle everything under the sun for a good while I think.

I was originally going to get that type of PSU in my latest PC but decided to cut it down to 850.

Ceek, where did you get the half their subscriber base thing from?  Your math does not compute.  $73 million is nothing to cough at to sell on a system despite the 360 selling so much more.  If anything come 2008 when good ports are common, Sony's big exclusives come out, and everyone in general is now fully fighting for games to publish, we'll probably see these numbers even out more.

I should have said installed base, not sub base (that's what I get for typing at 5:30 in the morning).   you said the PS3 install base was only half since it was out for only half the time, so I made the joke of doubling the amount of money listed for the PS3 ($17 million- the $73 million is PS2 sales).

If the youtube videos correctly show the 360 version than I can tell you that its even harder on the PC-and yes, I have gotten to the terrorist twice and hit the VIP both times-but its been about 3 hours to do that and I got pissed off and havent tried in a few days.

they nerfed it for the 360?  we were playing the PC but since most everyone else has the 360 version I figured I'd ask.  we only tried for about 30 minutes before calling it quits.
