Sigh. One day i'll get to proclaim my love for Oblivion without LOL MORROWIND!!!!!!!!!! right after :(

Deus Ex is the best game ever. You can't edit that.


If they didn't want people to complain like that, they shouldn't have got rid of half the spells (give me Levitate, and all the transportation spells back), dumbed down the levelling system (Medium Armour, Small Blades etc) and lost that sense of a massive open world that went with the introduction of fast travel. The silt striders were interesting, original and worked very well as a game mechanic, I doubt that sorting a horse/carriage thing that took you from city to city would've been too much to ask. Oh, and the level scaling. No game overs unless you die would be nice as well. Apart from that, it's amazing.

Deus Ex rocks socks. Make love to me.

I think he's getting to that stage where men develop a huge pot belly and their wang sort of retreats into their bodies.

Lord of the Rings Online. I love it to bits, the community's really friendly, the graphics are really natural looking and the quests and deed system make grinding a lot less dull! Only downside is, not enough people play it, so it can be hard to find a group sometimes. :(

Should I get Dirt 2 for £15 on the steam weekend sale or get it for £18 on 360 from Amazon and save myself some hard drive space? (and have less hassle with graphics settings)

Given the choice between getting a game for console or PC, I go with PC every time.

Never heard of Dirt 2 though, so I couldn't tell you which it'll play best on. I didn't even know there was a Dirt 1. :|
