The Guild is a good game but very hard. The Guild 2 is brilliant however. If you ever get the chance you should grab the new Anno game. I think it was Anno 1402 or something like that. Whichever number the new version is. Totally brilliant game.

I just grabbed The Void. Always wanted to play that. $5 yes please.

Took a look at the Void and decided it looks interesting enough to grab. I'm trying to do the purchase right now but it's being slow as it can be.

Madballs! Surprisingly good, seriously.

IGN review of the XBLA version: http://xboxlive.ign.com/articles/100/1003180p1.html (the PC version gets lots of updates so it's actually better)

Steam version review: http://cheatcc.com/pc/rev/madballsin...ionreview.html

Does Borderlands support the xbox pc controller and mic? I just picked up the Borderlands pack w/ expantions. All that for $20, its fascinating. Sold my PS3 copy a while back.

Also got Thief: Deadly Shadows and GTA: San Andreas. Thanks Mr. Newell, if you were here I'd love to shake your hand.

When the stock market is bad, Steam makes up for it in sales!

Yes, Borderlands works great with the Xbox 360 controller. If you plug a headset into the controller, it will function as a PC headset.

If you are referring to the steam version then you get it by either coping it once it is show to you when you first buy the DLC OR you can get it at any time by:

1) going to My games tab
2) right clicking on Borderlands
3) select "View game CD Key"
4) the key shown will be for "Borderlands DLC: the Zombie island of Dr.Ned"
5) click "copy to clipboard"

Then once you go to Jacob's cove and you get the request again you can simply CTL+V and your off and running.

My brother recently had a problem with this as well. He typed in the CD incorrectly during DLC installation (didn't use the copy/paste function) and it went partway through the installation before saying the CD key was invalid and then stopped. It never asked for the CD key again, and he couldn't get to Jacob's Cove.

The first thing i recommended to him was to delete local content and re-install. It did not work (though all of his characters remained intact). He accidentally discovered that if he had one copy of borderlands open, and he tried to start another, it prompted him to put the DLC CD-key in again. This time he did it correctly and it correctly installed.

Let me know if this helps or if this was just a random fix to a random problem.
I haven't installed them yet, internet access problem. But I did find this, hoping it helps because I'll be doing the same thing.

inb4 EastX posting the deals.

Gonna buy Devil May Cry 4 from this day's sales. Wonder how it'll be like with a mouse and keyboard? Heard mixed opinions from people about it but for less than 4, can't complain.
