This version of Doom 3 is buggy, especially if you use an AMD graphics card. I was able to play it for a few hours, but in order to get to the single player campaign, I had to start a multiplayer game first, or it would freeze at the load screen. Thing is, now the multiplayer load screen is freezing. I read that it has something to do with Open GL.

It was fun while it lasted. At least they gave us the ability to use the flashlight with all weapons finally. The game holds up, I just wish they would iron out the bugs.

I even fired up Doom 1 and Doom 2 (they come free with Doom 3), and it was incredibly weird to see those games on my screen again. The graphics are obviously way outdated, but it's hard to beat the awesome sound effects of those titles.

Borderlands 2 is still on sale. Problem is, my bros won't install it as they're opposed to Steam. I am also opposed to Steam but I, well, gave in a bit. They remain intransigent, despite installing F2P online games (same thing) and being huge Valve fans (which I'm not).

Also, can we please get some bona fide AA-AAA DX 11 games? I'm burnt out on buying AAA games that still use DX 9.0C tech with only "token" use of more advanced features. I know that y'all know what I'm talking about lol.

Blizzard publishes the specs of the computers playing games like WoW and Diablo 3. The majority are using Intel integrated graphics chips. Ouch.

As for Steam, it works. No more game disks, the game is always available to download when I want to play it. If it goes away and I lose my games sometime in the future so be it.

IMO you ought to pick up the Season Pass DLC, the Mechromancer and The Psycho addons for Borderlands 2 during the Steam Sale. They are definitely worth the ~12 bucks extra.
