Overall I was enjoying the game until it hit me that nothing I did mattered. I had my save game from the first one going into game two, but lost the save before getting game three. I had saved Wrex in the first game and the thing that slapped me in the face was that it didn't matter because his brot...

I bought Storm of Zehir through Direct 2 Drive. About half the games I had bought through them did not carry over when Gamefly bought them out. I bought Mysteries of Westgate from Atari, but it looks like they don't sell it any more either. Your only options seem to be either the collected edition o...

DDO and LotRO both run better on the second computer than WoW does. They are both built upon the engine for Asheron's Call 2. They don't run great, and the settings are turned down, but they run. For quick reference the system has a 1.6GHz Pentium III processor, 2 gigs of ram, and an ATI X800 graphi...

I run it just fine. I am running 32 bit XP as well. My monitor is the same dimensions and resolution as yours. I keep it because I have kids and cats and the screen has a hardness rating of 9H on the Mohs Scale according to the documentation. It's just 3mm thick, but I've had it for eight years and ...

There is still a somewhat active modding community based around the single player Hellgate: London. It scratches much of the same itch as Borderlands for me, but has instancing instead of the more open world of Borderlands. Rage was another game that has some of the same feel as Borderlands. It didn...

500w should be okay for what you posted. I wouldn't go much below that myself as they can lose efficiency over time with heavy use. A year of constant pushing can mean a 20% drop from initial wattage. That's extreme for most home users, but it's not uncommon for many home users to see a 20% drop aft...

What happens is the Dunmer in the cell across from you has different lines he says depending on your race. It doesn't trigger with custom races. There are various fixes available. The method I recommend is to install the unofficial patch along with the extra patches that go with the DLC if you have ...

Flowers in the Attic. I saw this movie as a kid and nothing has come close to touching it yet for scaring me on a long term basis. Other movies might make me jump, but that one was the only movie to do more than keep me up for a night.

They tend to go back and forth for performance within a specific cost bracket. I advise checking Tom's Hardware.

I have to agree with much of what you have said on your points. I agree to some extent on customization. It is less than that of many games, but it isn't completely obliterated. The fact that people aren't particularly worried about getting a specific rune or power when leveling is evidence that all...

It always strikes me as funny how every so often there are games that come out which try to create an RPG/Strategy hybrid but ignore games like Baldur's Gate, Fallout, or Arcanum when gameplay wise they were very much strategy games with the story and customization of RPGs. I think part of the probl...

I usually don't have trouble with Origin for the most part, but I can't launch ME2 from Origin. It downloads and installs, but if I want to run the game I have to do so from the executable itself, or a self-made shortcut pointing to that executable. It's the only game that has given me any trouble i...

Every game should have a pokedex One of the first things that struck me as cool about Planescape: Torment was it provided a sort of monster manual for every type of NPC you encountered as well as some entries for some of the named ones. Warhammer Online was pretty cool in this regard as it had entri...

Unless the item is intended purely as vendor trash I normally don't sell anything. It's rare for me to buy anything either though. I may sell something akin to a fire protection potion if I have a stack of potions that do a better job protecting me from fire. I never use those things, but I never se...

Part of why I play MMOs is I am bad at video games, but have lots of time. I am disabled to the point where I can't sit up on my own. I also have trouble focusing on things, but a computer helps by condensing everything into a focal point for me. I really do perform rather poorly in just about all g...

Pikes were probably the last melee weapons to be used as a mass in times of war and were used right alongside firearms. One fairly common formation was to have a block of pikemen with two blocks of guys with handguns behind them facing sideways and have these formations go down the line. The pikes a...

Well, the title of the article pertains to grabbing players. Normally to grab someone you either need to give them a slap, or utilize some sort of a gimmick.

Keep in mind Galraen is speaking from the perspective of someone that enjoyed Fallout three more than the first two. There's nothing wrong with that, but if you liked the first two more than Fallout three then your opinion on New Vegas may differ. http://www.gamebanshee.com/forums/fallout-series-37/...
