    I tolerate Steam, nothing more. I won't deny that I've become spoiled by buying and downloading games from home without having to go to the store, but I have no real love or loyalty to Steam. As long ...

    Most immediate one is Civilization: Beyond Earth, which I've already pre-ordered. I'll also probably get Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel - I'm just waiting for reviews. Beyond that, there are The Witcher ...

    Turns out, screw December. I went ahead and bought it today; it was my visit to her store in months (thanks to Steam), so I just felt bad leaving her store empty-handed after she told me she didn't ha...

    Can't wait. Dreamfall wasn't much of a game, but the story, the world and the music were mesmerising. Hoping for more of the same, with maybe a little bit extra.

  • madrocketeer posted a message in the forum topic Have you seen Grim Dawn recently? The game is awesome!!. on the PC & Mac Discussion board

    I already intend to buy it - they had me at "made by the same guys who made Titan Quest." I'm just waiting for them to leave Early Access.

    Hmm... Microsoft also seems to be, at the very least, trialling the idea of a notification centre in Windows 9.Video of it in action.

  • madrocketeer posted a message in the forum topic Windows 9 Start Menu in Action. on the PC & Mac Discussion board

    Apparently, this is still an early test build, so things could change. But if this is what's going to be in the final product, then finally, Microsoft gets it. You don't need to try to create a single...

    These days, I have a rule: I'm done with lugging around full ATX midtowers. At the moment, there are simply not enough choice of micro-ATX and mini-ITX X99 boards, so I will wait.In the end, I think I...

  • madrocketeer posted a message in the forum topic Windows 8.1 and Gaming. on the PC & Mac Discussion board

    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...
