I picked these up in the Steam sale. Warband was a gift from a friend, I also gifted someone The Binding of Isaac as I believe everybody needs to play it!

Waiting for the ARMA pack to go on sale (a better sale; it will probably be on a daily sale).

Feel free to add me on Steam, however my gaming PC is broken at the moment so I'm purchasing games on my laptop.

Only got Serious Sam BFE so far, looking at a few others though. Might buy the Sega pack just because I'd be saving £270. :lol:

Steam sale happens, just when I start saving for BOA...

Loads of things I'd buy too.

Does anyone else get like 'stuttering' on Deus Ex: Human Revolution despite the fps being constantly at the cap? I've googled about a bit and it just seems to be due the fact that the game is a bad console port :/

Right, has any actually played a 'bad console port'? I don't mean the annoying UI of Skyrim, or the fact that you have to use Q as something other than lean.

I'm talking shitty shitty bad ports like Dark Souls or The Darkness.

Saints Row 2.

Basically unplayable due to graphic/FPS problems.

Is Dark Souls even out on PC yet?

Well that sucks, surely devs should want to release games in an optimised state?

Yeah but isn't Dark Souls the one that was purposely ridiculously hard? Surely a bad port would make it even more of a ballache to get through? :P

I primarily play new releases on console because while I have the specs to run most stuff on a PC, they tend to create for Consoles now because console players actually pay for games. Besides which, i'm not autistic enough about grafix to care enough about the differences. I don't play online much either, so that's rarely an issue, though i'm sure it would be if I did, so that is a fair point.

In other words, this -
