Fuck, I wish my computer could run Civ V smoother. It works okay, but sluggish even on the lowest settings (from the demo).

I loved Tactics Ogre back on the PS1, and I never played World Ends With You. I think I may be buying a couple games.....

I tried a game trial with Onlive and I dunno, I wasn't terribly impressed by it. The response time was pretty good, while honestly from the nature of the service I was expecting there to be at least a minutely noticeable lag. But their overall game selection left something to be desired. I could see the benefit only if I were still using an older computer and if I had a very, very reliable internet connection. I might be willing to start buying games on it if they come up with something really good for a $5 and I wasn't expecting Steam to have the same game on sale anytime soon.

From what I've seen of OnLive, it has exactly two viable markets:

- People too cheap/lazy to upgrade their PCs.

- People who travel a lot and ether don't have a laptop or don't have one that is very good for games. The ability to plug and play is great if you don't want to lug a console or PC everywhere you go.

So it's not a bad idea, and it IS perhaps the future of gaming, but I think it's still a generation too early.

I tried OnLive recently. It was like playing a game with its graphics on "Low" through a video compression filter. I'll stick with Steam, thank you.

With a title like that, I had to click on it and see what kind of game it is.

After watching the trailer and reading up about it, I still have no idea what kind of game it is.
I watch it too, I think it is a "moving" games of bridge?? (I have no clue)

It sort of like a quasi board game, but not really. Also, I remember this is the game where you get to murder someone in cold blood... the guy may have been a rapist though. Still, it's portrayed rather darkly and it's quite unnerving.

GamersGate continues to have EA games on sale at random. I have no idea what schedule or structure they're trying for, or why the international prices are different. It doesn't exactly inspire confidence in their service.
