    I got the MOH and it is not bad, it is a DICE production after all. First MOH game I buy after 10 years (only got the WW2 part).

    Problem is it crashes a lot. "Lost conn to EA servers" message." Is this normal or due to overclocking to much? :p

    They show absolutely zero credentials, their "About Us" page is laughable and their "Contact Us" is a script on their webpage (No phone, no email, no address). Regardless if anyone had any "success" with them, I would never, ever give them any sort of personal or payment information.

    Seeing your other posts, you're just spamming that site. Goodbye.

    Yes and yes, and their support email is added as a contact so it wouldn't hit spam anyways. Reading their forums though, it appears I'm not the only one with this issue.

    I have avoided the Stalker series, convinced that they were either too outdated graphically or buggy, basically fatally flawed works that might have been masterpieces - I thoroughly enjoyed Metro and Stalker shares its universe - however, it seems that, thanks to the Complete mods, the Stalker games can be played as they were meant to be played:

    Yeah, I don't think you missed much there, dude.

    I got Stalker: Shadow of Chernobyl years ago and after a little while playing it, I realised that I just didn't like it all that much, as I just couldn't get into it and gave up on it quite quickly.

    I just use it now for the odd benchmark. It showed the improvement of my GTX 580 over my GTX 285 very nicely. :D

    I only ever had the one game, but I expect the later versions to be improved. Hunt down a review or two and find out! :D

    I had the first game when I was rocking a AMD 4200x2 and a HD2900. Game sucked then. Wasnt sure if the later ones were any better.

    Did the noise of that 2900 drive you barmy? It did for me. It didn't matter how I tweaked the voltage and fan profile, it always spun up annoyingly, even on the desktop. On top of that, it couldn't nail an 8800GTX like it was supposed to. :shadedshu

    That card was a lemon, but I kept it, because I really like the look of it. It just sits on a shelf now looking pretty. :) :eek:

    It got the full overhaul as well:

    It has to be worth € 2.49. Has anybody tried these mods? They have a great deal of positive feedback, but if you didn't like the game to begin with, they may not fix that.

    I didnt have the fan problem as some did. But I agree. It was a badass looking card. No doubt.

    I am glad that I waited 1 more day, because all S.T.A.L.K.E.R. games are below 4 euro now (except Call of Pripyat if you don't own or wish to own one/both of the other, in that case it is 7 EUR for that game) while yesterday they still were 7 EUR for SoC & CS and 30 EUR for CoP (14 EUR if you own/buy at least one of the other games).

    CoD4 now half price at only £10

    http://store.steampowered.com/app/7940

    If you've never played this, it's a brilliant bargain!

    EDIT

    For once, it's actually cheaper than retail off Amazon, too.
