Let me guess: Does that list of two games include:

You only say this to make it easier for you to lie. You have never told us
the names of the 40+ games you have bought since the begining of this year.

and went and purchased it for myself you mildly retarded idiot.

None. I'm busy playing through Indiana Jones and the Internal Machine
after finally getting it to run an XP equipped system.

I'm also playing through the incredible Sanitarium from ASC Games
-about 1/3rd through the story I'd estimate.

40 games since January 1? Does he claim to have actually played them
all? How does he find the time? Let's see, at an average length of 30
hours for a PC game, that's 1200 hours of playing time. Since we're 120
days into 2005, that would amount to an average of 10 hours per day,
every day, for the last four months. Where does he find time for work or
school? 70 hours gaming plus 40 hours for school or work leaves only 58
hours per week for sleeping, eating, bathing, commuting, buying new
games, writing dozens of anti-steam rants, etc. Somebody needs to go
outside more often.

On the plus side, this sort of schedule does amount to an excellent form
of contraception, so we needn't worry about seeing any little
steamkillers running around in the future.

You don't need to actually PLAY the PC game to be a True PC Gamer<tm>.

You just need to buy it. At retail. In a pretty box.

It's the box that counts.

Infernal Machine isn't it?

Never finished that one - got about 90-95% of the way through then the
camera view screwed up so I could no longer see Indy at all and I had to
give up.

BTW - if you're in the UK then PC World (spits) are actually doing a decent
deal at the moment (but not for long) - buy any two chart games and the
cheapest is free. Probably go for BIA and Swat4 tomorrow...

Oooh, I want to play too! I can't compete with your list, but here's
what I picked up this month:

Brothers in Arms (read my review from April 3 :) 
Doom 3: Resurrection of Evil (yawn)
Pro Race Driver (didn't play yet, though)
Driver 3 (ugh... wish I could take it back :) 
Scrapland (it looks fun... but it's too cutesy for me to bear)
Splinter Cell 3 - Chaos Theory (more of the same)
Magic the Gathering Online (freebie; score!)
Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds (it's Star Wars, I have to buy it)
Battlefield 1942 (just to see; multiplayer, ugh!)
Medieval Total War (Rome:TW was fun; this one, not so much)
Alpha Black Zero (not great, but okay after the first few levels)

My mind's reeling! After lightening up on my game purchases the past
couple of years I've *almost* managed to complete my collection of
games with coherent storylines -almost. You're set for life with that

I love it. I actually give a damn about the main character and a
sizeable amount of the people you encounter during the adventure. It's
an outstanding display of story telling and plot advancement. I do
have to take frequent breaks from it though. It's unsettling how
everyone seems oblivious to disturbing situations around them.
Although I'm sure yet if all of these situations are really happening
or imagined..

Scratch that previous post. I bought Resurrection of Evil - the Doom 3
expansion pack - earlier today. Its price has been reduced to $19.99
and almost every store in the area. Even Amazon.com has it listed at
this price. It's suprising considering that Computer Gaming World
reported the expansion pack as the best selling PC game of the past
couple of weeks -whatever though.. I'm not complaining!

For years I thought that I'd never be able to play the game properly
due to a rendering error. Out of the box the game played fine but then
abruptly the screen would become flooded with a single color which made
navigating impossible. Windows XP systems seemed to be affected by
this error most as evidenced by other user reviews on Amazon. The 1.2
patch seemed to fix everything though. It could be worth looking into
if you're interested in finishing the title still.

I just reached the pyramid in Teotihuacan and I'm having trouble
figuring out the puzzle involving the statue and gears. It's rather
discouraging. Instead I'd rather focus on the exploring and action
since it's a nontraditional Indy title - at least from what I remember
of The Fate of Atlantis and The Last Crusade. I'd hate to leave a game
unfinished though so I'll just tough it out for this level until the
more exciting level return.

I've seen it at EB:Games, although it might not be entirely recent. You
should be able to go up to the front desk and ask for a special order.

If not, well you could order it direct from the manufacturer or publisher
(assuming that's an option).
