    I nabbed AVP for 9.99€, I don't mind a few $$ here and there, especially since mates paid 4-5x that at launch for it and I skipped out then.

    Loved the demo tho, hopefully its worth my tenner, but I'll need to wait more than another 24 hours to know that on my slow ass connection.

    Just a theory:
    I have all cookies (even LSO) disabled and I still get the USA prices from "store.steampowered.com". My assumption therefore is that it uses your IP address to pick which prices you see. If so couldn't you use a free USA-based proxy to see the US prices?

    I tried using a few different foreign proxies and all I got was "USD" added to the end of the prices so I don't know if it'll work but it might be worth a try.

    Day of Defeat?
    I know it used to be wildly popular, but I'm not sure about now. For $2.50 I might just get it.

    There is still a strong following behind DOD:S. I do play it occasionally to fulfill my Kar98 rampage.

    Seems like a decent deal considering it's still around 60 bones on consoles. I haven't read many critical reviews but what I've heard is good. Still it isn't hard to be the best F1 game in town when you're the only developer that's licensed to use the name...

    I'm watching this review while I eat my dinner:

    Interesting, looks like Risen on PC got pretty good reviews, and 360 got crap reviews. Wondering if its worth it, is it open world or more of a linear path? Comparable to Oblivion? Or Anything else?

    Please tell me you're not confusing Australia with Austria. Please tell me you were only kidding when you posted this comment.

    Risen is a spiritual successor to the Gothic series and I enjoyed it though it got a little slow in the final chapter. It's not very linear. If you want a good idea of what it looks and plays like download the Gothic 4 demo that just came out.

    I didn't realize they were different continents.

    In related news, I heard that Russia was flying planes over Georgia. I called my cousin in Atlanta and he assured me that he couldn't see planes so I figured out that the media was lying. Goddamn liberal media.

    I know this might sound stupid seeing as how they are old games and the deal is no longer around too, probably. Last week I bought GTA, GTA II, GTA III, GTA Vice City and San Andreas for only £5 as a all-in one bundle and that really saved me a lot of time of getting them on legit discs which will probably be living on my shelf right now had I not brought it from Steam. I was surprised that I was able to get the first and second game as a part of it too as I believe the PC versions would be games that are free downloads on the official Rockstargames website. I guess the good point is I won't have to go hunting for them. ^^

    I noticed in the game details area. Has a DRM that limits to 3 machine activations :(

    not really.

    instead of being about sniping and stealth, its more like a generic close combat FPS with the odd sniping bit.

    It depends on the game (which is rather wierd actually).
    When I buy indie games it puts them in c:\ProgramFile(x86)\Indie Games
    otherwise they are in c:\Program Files (x86)\Stardock\Games (if it's a stardock game)
    and I think non-Stardock, non-Indie games are somewhere else.

    Hope that cleared things up 'Rocker. :laugh:
