I lie. I can't find it anywhere!!! Is it a free game? I don't think my PC will handle games anymore tbh, but the 360 will.....

It comes as part of 'The Orange Box' which is a fantastic gaming deal in itself...

btw, if for some reason reason any of you ain't got half life 2 or episode 1 I've got them as gifts to give on steam thanks to them putting them in the orange box. anyone who wants a free copy of either game, or both pm me. Only one copy though. For the PC btw and requires you installing Steam for any n00bs :lol:

speaking of PCs, anyone got Crysis running smoothly? I bought it, but my graphics card isn't up to scratch, I'll upgrade it on Monday...

Other than this, Assassin's Creed is kicking ass.

Anyone played Broken Sword 4? It hasnt worked on either of my computer, ones on XP and ones on Vista. Just says after installation and trying to play it that there is a direct X error, despite having the newest direct X installed.

Playing Assassin's Creed on the 360... pretty ace. Not mind-blowing, but pretty ace :)

How old is he? If you want a blasty, combat heavy one then I'd wait for unreal tournament 3, its out in 2 weeks or so. Unreal Tournament deliver good games, its a pretty solid franchise in my oppinon.

WoW costs per month. If you want the equivalent of WoW without the paying then your best bet is to buy guildwars and its expansion packs. You don't need to pay monthly with them, they're free.

It all depends on how old he is though

Loved Portal, such a cool game, wish it was a bit longer though.
This has led me to start playing Half Life 2.
Still playing Guild Wars which is always fun.
BOA 2015 wish list:
Blind Guardian, Edguy, Wintersun, Fleshgod Apocalypse and Manowar

Guild Wars is awesome. However, if you are Luxon we are now mortal enemies! :twisted:

Well done :yes: That's usually such a fucking challenge many people don't even realise it's possible! I think I used up all my LAMs and several Rockets doing it way-back-when...
