    You heathen you - Arma2 (with mods) is the best game ever, ever, ever ;-) Seriously though, if you didn't like it then the flightstick isn't going to turn things around for you.

    Hitman: Blood Money - £1.47 at greenmangaming, probably my favourite out of the series.

    Anyone seen a reasonable offer for Skyrim? Ziip are out of stock for a week or two, greenmangaming have it for £30.97. The Tesco and ASDA deals for ~£25 are finished now.

    i had a feeling you'd chip in at some point. lol. The problem i have with the game is mainly to do with how the missions don't exactly flow nicely. i.e you're always wondering if something with the AI scripting broke and thus would have to reload. Not fun.

    I can put up with the horrid voice overs, the clipping issues, the lack of rag doll physics, the ass-backwards command system which is fine for complex actions but a pain when trying to do simple stuff.

    What annoys me the most for some reason though, is that the game has a crosshair. what's the point of ADS if you have a cross hair that is just as good if not better.

    Btw. what mods would you recommend?

    Well, for just £1.25 that "much more" includes the one and only, now infamous Horse Armor Pack!!!

    I'm very tempted by this, but it's also tempting to just put the money towards buying Skyrim now. £30.97-£3.74 = a more attractive £27.23!! :jawdrop:

    Yeah, the stock missions aren't that great - I make my own or play the community made ones. There are hundreds of them but I can particulary recommend the Ghost Recon ones. The ACE mod is what you are after - no crosshairs and ultra realism. For AI enhancement then ASR_AI is awesome. The new patch (out any time now) addresses a lot of the single player and multiplayer issues too - the latest betas are so much better than vanilla.

    It was a bargain last week!

    @spectre456;
    As Jedra already said, ACE is a really good mod.
    The A2WarMod is also an excellent one to think about, there's a version of it that runs along with ACE so you can get some great new combined features, added weapons & enemies, improved AI, a better interface and of course a much better experience.

    Overall I prefer A2WarMod on it's own because I don't like adding factions, units, vehicles and all that stuff to the game... I just wanted gameplay and UI tweaks.

    Severely tempted by the oblivion for £5...but then i dnt know if i should get that and then get skyrim during a sale or just get skyrim now. The stories are not direct sequels (unlike witcher) so its not like i need to play oblivion first

    dont know what to dooooo :confused:

    I was in the same boat as you, but I bit the bullet and snagged Oblivion. I just want to get an idea of the Elder Scrolls world before diving into the latest one.

    I'd get both. Oblivion was fine compared to most games, and the Shivering Isles campaign is great and worth the price alone.

    Skyrim I have not played yet, but I have heard only good from everyone I know who has the game. (Appart from the few the Steam haters that is.)

    Yea i've decided to get Oblivion, all that content for £5 is too good a chance to miss, plus i've seen theres a fair few good mods out as well to improve graphics and such.

    I will get Skyrim later when it's cheaper

    Yeah I picked it up as well, it was an insane price for the content, getting Skyrim for my birthday in a couple of weeks though but I thought why not get oblivion for a fiver.

    Free Magicka weekend, and discount on Steam. I'd advise anyone who hasn't tried it to give it a bash, and if you can get a party of 4 together for a game, even better!

    New Humble Indie bundle. Introversion this time.

    Games:

    Uplink, Darwinia, Multiwinia & Defcon - also, if you give more than the average you get Crayon Physics deluxe (great game) and Aquaria.

    Trying to buiy Batman: AC on steam and keep getting the error message:

    There seems to have been an error initializing or updating your transaction. Please wait a minute and try again or contact support for assistance.

    Been like this for 2 days and since steam support takes 5+ days to reply I was wondering if someone could help, preferably someone who has batman:AA and can get it for £27.99. Have money waiting in paypal.
