No-one suspects the man with the pink gun.

Final Reviews:

-Metro 2033: Bleah. It's boring, buggy and badly assembled. The story is vaguely interesting, with fascinating moments bad they're cobbled together with some very flat and uninteresting gameplay.

-Just Cause 2: It gets really repetitive, but even with that, it's not boring at all. I find myself playing it a lot even with the terrible driving missions. It's such a forgiving game, that aims to please the player and lets him loose, in a way that's incredibly similar to the early days of GTA (the ones where you could commit the most horrid acts of debauchery and get away with it while ignoring the main plot completely). But here the tone is 100% humorous. Rico is a smart ass who clearly doesnt give a flying fuck about anyone and his lines are insanely funny sometimes. The surroundings are also beautiful. Plus everyone is saying that this game works better on PC than on console. EAT IT XBOXERS!!!

-Left4Dead2: took a peek at the improvements. A ton of super cool details. love it

Pondering on Borderlands. Hmmm.

I'm also pondering Borderlands.

Just Cause 2 crashes my PC. I think since I put another card in the PCI-E slot near my graphics card, it's starting to overheat. This makes me sad in the belly.

Metro 2033, on the other hands, runs awfully...

Hmm, is there anything else I should be upgrading the drivers for? Other than my graphics card? I've had a quick look online and it looks like you can't really get processor drivers/firmware. I've got the latest ATI drivers and I've tried letting the card overclock slightly (it was mentioned on another forum).

Hmph. It's so fun too!

Besides pushing the graphic card (and eventually trying forceware drivers), i guess the RAM and the processor help.

Apparently it doesnt work well on XP and it's mainly deisgned to run smoothly under W7 but i might be runnin' my mouth...

It is incredibly fun.... I recently did a plot mission (after roaming Panau aimlessly for days) and i wiped out a whole aztec temple filled with soldiers with a giant machine gun, while chatting gleefully with an NPC.

I love how you're supposed to be the good guy but you end up doin worse stuff than the actual baddies.

Yeah I've spent the last two days loading up the game, going after the nearest Colonel type chap, getting killed by him a couple of times and watching as the graphics card restarts. I even took one out who was on a roof, I did it by hiding behind all the AC extractors and taking out his guards, then cooking a grenade and landing it perfectly at his feet.

It might be something to do with me running it in a window, maybe the combination of the game and all the transparency and whatnot going on in the W7 desktop is too much for my GPU, but I have it on lowlow settings and the lowest res. It upsets me so.
