    This is true, but it's all the $2.50's that add up :shock:

    I think I'll pull the trigger all the same :thumbup:

    U huh.. they do.. i usually buy most things that are on special on steam, but recently been a lot more selective.. i think i'd rather buy DLC for a high scoring game that could prolong its life rather than buying a shit new release game that expensive.. I was going to buy front mission evolved but then saw the crap metacritic score so i avoided it.. would rather spend $2.50 than $12.50 lol

    You can just replace the new exe with the old one, the game remains patched and Bolo works, just tried it tonight

    Link to old exe, not cracked, a plain old exe.

    The Hitman games are today's 75% special, if anyone is interested.

    I'm surprised that you can't get Steam gift cards, like iTunes cards. They'd make a great present and avoid the problems people have with getting credit cards sorted.

    Yeah, it's worth it for 75% off if you are going to play coop. Shakey camera is annoying though.

    I really enjoyed playing Lara Croft GoL (Coop), definitely worth the $5. The challenge packs arent so well thought out but still stupidly cheap.

    I played it coop using VPN. Didnt try any other way.

    Ping of 80ms was fine, higher pings (200+) made it a bit odd fighting but all of the traps/challenges were still OK.
