Burnout Paradise is so much better graphically on the PC, the PS3 version might have been the definitive console port, but the PC version is the true optimal game. Now all I need is for my 360 wireless receiver to get here and I'll be in business.

I played Burnout for about 50 minutes and turned it off. Came back later and now it won't load. I get a crash on the startup screen in the same place every time. This sucks. I see a thread on the Steam forums about setting the compatibility to XP. After I finish redownloading I'll try that. I allready tried Vista and same thing.

One other thing you can try if the XP compatibility doesnt work, go into burnout graphic options and set it to DX9.

XP didn't work but I figured it out. I uninstalled a driver I had for the Ps3 usb eye camera. Happy again.

I already had Mirror's Edge. I do want Dead Space, but I am going to hold out for under $10.

Mass Effect 2 sales today are nice! $24 for the game or $36 for the crappy digital deluxe edition.

I just got Mass effect 1 for 5 bucks, I was going to get ME2 but I said fuck it and I'm just going to wait for a GOTY edition that comes with the DLC later on. You know it's coming. Every game that comes out now is GOTY!
