    Batman AA with PhysX and AA enabled on a PC = a very nice visual experience. But yes, one of the many games that suit the console audience. I'm not sure how much replay-ability the game had, but i might wait for it to drop to like $9.98USD before i pick it up...or just rent it on the Xbox 360 and clock it.

    I'm a bit iffy on getting Batman too. It wouldn't really be worth it if I'm running only an ATi card, would it?

    Too bad i dont have a download cap for the THQ pack, no free steam downloads, but that's a steal if anyone needs THQ games.

    I think im getting Osmos and Stalker tonight.

    Hope batman runs on my rig (sig) ok. Demo ran 'good' enough so I hope the full version is a little more polished.

    Why does everyone keep complaining about their caps? Can't you just buy it now and then download it at your leisure?

    Surely there'd be a few people here willing to spin a couple of Steam Backup DVDs and post them out.

    If I buy a game, I want to play it at my earliest convenience. Like as soon as I get home from work :p

    I don't want to have to download a few gig every month when I have left over quota, then not be able to play the game til the sequel comes out, then I have to start the process all over again.

    Or I can just cap myself out with a few days to go til my net rolls over.

    I generally cap myself out and then keep going while my connection is capped to 56K..its takes its sweet time, but gets it done eventually.

    I'd do it close to the end of the month, not in the middle :D Anyway i'm sure someone local or a friend may be able to download it for you.

    hmm.. wonder if the steam version of STALKER disallows playing with mods (eg: stalker complete 2009) - anyone know for sure please?

    I'll pick-up Osmos soon as its pretty cheap and an indie game (i like to support those devs). I hope daily they have indie games in their list.
