    In my experience, it's mostly just all round UI improvements, everything else is the the same as 8.0. I haven't had any problems with games at all, though admittedly I only play old and low-spec games...

    Yeah, even with all the official patches, the game is bugged and glitched like crazy. It's just something you have to accept.It is a lot better on my current playthrough, though. I have all the unoffi...

    South Park: The Stick of Truth.Because it was published by Ubisoft, I assumed it would use Uplay. Not wanting to deal with two game clients at once, I bought the physical disc version.Imagine my annoy...

    So far, got Dungeon Defenders for $3.74 and $9.66 worth of DLCs (no themed stuff). $13.40 total.Waiting to see if those Borderlands 2 Headhunter packs will get a better price.

  • madrocketeer posted a message in the forum topic What kind of antivirus do you people use? on the PC & Mac Discussion board.

    Avast. I heard NOD32 is the best, but I can't be bothered paying for it. My friend has a "less than legal" version, but I hate wearing eye patches and peg legs, so I've become a freeware addict. I use...

  • madrocketeer posted a message in the forum topic Should SP games start incorporating PERMANENT SAVE ??? on the PC & Mac Discussion board.

    I know what you mean. XCOM has a permanent save option, which forces you to use a single automatically updating save slot, so all decisions, deaths and stat boost from promotions are final. I don't us...
