    I own AC and so far it looks promising, right now the game is just hotlaps 'cause there's no AI or multiplayer yet. Better get a wheel for this game although even X360 controller is fully supported and developer is prettty dedicated to player user base, just look at official AC forum. They even working on Oculus Rift addon which works with some flaws right now.
    They should release a demo because driving model is pretty responsive and feels solid
    did I say there are Ferraris

    I have a logitech g27 so wheel is sorted :)

    So at its £23 sale price you will have paid for its potential but don't know what the full game will be?

    It looks nice but I rarely pay that much for the finished article, think I'll waiting for it to finish an come on sale.

    Is it only me that really hates "the holidays" rather than just plain old Christmas. It started in the US but I've seen it in the UK this year and I'll be damned if I'm going to put up with it!

    Its because in this modern politically correct world Christmas is seen as an affront to other religions, so people call it "the holidays" so as not to offend anyone.

    Anyone interested in worms revolution.

    My son wants it and I'm quite happy to buy a four pack and then people pay me via bank transfer if I have enough interest.

    £3.75 a copy.

    Noticed the sale was on, looked at the games that are on sale and I was like Meh!

    They could have most games reduced but I wouldn't buy them from Steam after there attitude towards refunds, so I am sticking with Origin from now on.

    A few friends though have already spent over £200 each on different games, but I have to laugh because they hardly have time to play what games they already have let alone new ones.

    In previous years I have seriously spanked the plastic on Steam's sales, but this year? There's been a couple I've spent on but no more than one every other day max. Dunno whether that means I've bought too many in the past, the Sales aren't as good anymore, or there just aren't too many great PC games around at the mo...?
