    Borderlands 2 is easily worth half price.

    I've picked up a few things. I've been waiting for Max Payne at that price. But I would be surprised if I buy anything in the Winter Sale. And I'd be surprised if the discounts are much different.

    Borderlands 2 is certainly worth that price. But again it is one of those that I won't get around to playing.

    Just noticed the Deus Ex: HR deal. You all must get that game.

    Including you, Jamie. Laying down the law is much better when it's done by smashing an enemy through a wall.

    So for some reason when I try to play Saints the Third the entire game basically plays in slow motion? I honestly don't get it at all

    I have it via Playstation Plus, and actually do intend to start it reasonably soon.

    When you launch the game, are you selecting Directx 10/11? Try using Directx 9. If that doesn't work, then maybe you need to update your Directx. If that doesn't work, then you can try running the game in a windowed mode. If that doesn't work...I have no idea.

    If you get it working, let me know. I'd love to co-op some SR3 anytime. :D

    Also, BioShock 2 is $5 on a flash deal. I might have to get that.

    I updated both of my drivers and haven't restarted it yet. I ran it in both Directx's and neither helped, nor did dropping the graphics.

    So Directx is up to date and it still doesn't work. Switching to windowed doesn't help either. The game runs at like a constant 5 fps at the most and it's really annoying -.-

    Hey mat. Get on Steam sometime. I can help you troubleshoot it. What are you PC specs? Are all your drivers up to date? How was the game installed?

    I used to have that problem with Prince of Persia. Think it was something to do with the graphics card.

    Everything else works fine. Even games that have similar requirements.

    Have you restarted your computer since you installed the game? Sometimes I have to do that to get a game to work properly.

    Yessir. I've restarted my computer at least 5 times since the initial install. The game still seems to run at like 5 fps.

    Also no I did not delete system 32

    Well, the Holiday Sale is here! I don't have a large wishlist, but I might pick up Mark of the Ninja or some other random games as they are put on sale.

    I'm still going to have to resist as much as possible. Nothing on the first day has come close to grabbing me.

    I'll likely buy something, despite not actually playing games on my PC!

    I'm dead broke, so Steam hasn't nailed me. God help me after I get money for Christmas, though.
