    For all those who didn't know and wanted to buy the game - I'm pretty sure you can get DiRT working on windows 7 64bit with a "no intro video" fix.

    Yeah I had no issues playing it on W7 before, if it plays on Vista it will play on W7.

    CoD:4 and CoD:MW2 are 50% (€12.50 and €20.00) off in a midweek madness deal on steam. Those prices cuts put them below the price you could get them on disk from amazon.

    Bargain?

    That deal doesn't amaze me at all, $14.99 for COD when BC2 regularly goes on sale for $6.79. I would be tempted if it was around $5, even though I hate COD, just that low of a price I'd probably get it.

    Crysis 2 is still $60. I wouldn't blow more than ten on that POS. Conversely, the excellent Witcher 2 with no DRM and way higher res graphics has already dropped to $40. Screw you, Crytek. Seriously.

    BC2 is $20 as it has been for ages.

    ME2 is also $20 and worth every penny (even with the goddamn locked 70 FOV)


    Happy to help but you also have to read my commentary :p

    Yeah I'll double check in my actual Steam client later but pretty sure ME2 is only $20. It's almost a year and a half old.

    Holding out for Witcher 2 as part of the upcoming Summer Sale, tho not holding my breath.

    have no idea why mass effect 2 is showing up that high but the others seem normal.

    pciked up the entire civ 4 collection for 7.50$ with an overall 94 meta score I figured it was worth that easily. Hopefully will be a better game than sim city 4.

    ^here it is $49.99, actually thats more than all other regions are getting
    [​IMG]

    this is not the only game
    at this rate, steam is going downhill for me with region bs.
    not Valve's fault though, which i have most of their games in my account and their games are fair priced.

    odd, but whats funny is that amazon has it for 10$ less than steam at the normal price.

    might have to do that just to get access to the dlc

    Civ 4 is bitchin', and a steal at $7.50. It's nothing like SimCity 4, which was a big disappointment, as SimCity 2000 was fun as hell.

    I just don't have the patience for games like that. RTS too. Wish I did...

    I'm the same, the amount of times I have started Company Of Heroes because it looks awesome and then just lose patience when I get pwned. I panic too much in those sort of games :laugh:
