I picked up Operation Flashpoint 2 Dragon Rising even though I swore up and down I never would. Steam had it on sale this week for $20 USD so it was impossible to resist any longer.

I can certainly see however why the reviews for it are so mixed because it has its good points and has some really bad points that actually seem to shadow the good points. For example, you can enter a mission where one of your team members is killed and once you complete the mission, the dead team member comes back to life. Also, there is no head bob when walking and viewing the world via your scope, it almost feels as if you're walking on rails; very unrealistic.

I do however like the firefights because Codemasters certainly done bullet dispersion and long range aiming much better than Bohemia Interactive ever has. Deep cover such as bushes, long grass, or rocks seems to help your chances as well in OFPDR much better than in ArmA and ArmAII.

Of course this is one of the few points where OFPDR is better than ArmA and ArmAII, everywhere else it comes woefully short.

Steam has some good deals for this holiday season (some older titles are even 75% off), I may pick something up if my 2mb connection that at times works like a 128k connection is fast enough to download them.

I would like to preorder Napoleon Total War but I already know I will be disappointed if I get it on release date. The Creative Assembly, that game's developer, is known for releasing incomplete, buggy, unstable and strategically unbalanced games and then patching them for half a year up to version 1.6 before they become playable. I had that frustrating experience with Empire and I swore I would never buy another CreativeAssembly game on release date anymore. There is just no point in buying a game and shelve it for half a year until you can actually play it (before v1.5 it crashed, the AI was terrible, you had to downgrade! drivers in order to play it without crashes), it was a disaster, you can read some good ranting including mine at that game's official forum.

But I'm actually thinking of upgrading my PC this holiday rather than spending money on new games, my processor is beginning to show its age and I want to run at least 8Gbs of memory.

And you Cricket? are you gonna shoot some cowboys this holiday?

We need a Mario Kart crew in here!!!

I did purchase Super Mario Brothers for my Wifey.(She like the smb games)
Aside from that, pretty much all I enjoy playing is Mario Kart. Online or Offline, makes no difference. It's just one of those games that preserves itself with the replay value.

Now, We need some Mario Kart friend #'s to find each other.. anyone?

I think you're mixing the versions of different games.

The latest major racing games are Forza 3, Gran Turismo 4, DiRT 2, and Need For Speed Shift.

Of all these:
Forza 3 is only available for the Xbox360,
Gran Turismo 4 is for Playstation 2,
Gran Turismo 5 is coming up in March 2010 for PS3,
DiRT2 and NFS Shift are available in Xbox360, PS3 and PC (I think there are Wii and DS versions but not sure).

if you are into simulators or fancy looking games stay away from the Wii versions, specially DiRT 2 for the Wii, I read that it sucks

lol, as I have said, it has been a while since I played... maybe the last time was before I started working and that is before I joined here... I played a few months ago for some days but don't remember which Gran Turismo it is. the NFS I play on PSP is Underground, Carbon and most wanted (one I hated most..)...

I use Wii Sports (fitness) for some extra exercise. I hate it when it tells me I am unbalanced.

My mom got Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince - she's loving it. I'm not sure that you'll find many 78 year olds playing that type of PC game!

I got Borderlands off of Steam, the Steam ID Pack, and the Steam Unreal pack.

In November I got Left 4 Dead 2
