There's a demo for singleplayer... no one plays multi.

No Steam exclusives today either... none I want anyway.

Quick question! If I recall correctly, I was told that Steam only offers 32-bit versions of games. If this is true, then why do people keep buying from Steam regardless if there is a sale or not?

Most games only have 32bit versions in the first place.

From my experience, there have been no performance increase between 32-64bit games. I don't see why that would be a problem.

I bought the square enix eidos package this weekend.

how are the hitman games that are listed?

I made it through about half way into the original one and lost interest and never bothered with the rest.

I liked all the Hitman games. I think they're all good.

The last one, Blood Money, was very well streamlined and still offered a unique spy experience... I would suggest you jump straight to that one and see what's what.

More meh... unless you somehow never got GTA4.

I'll probably buy X-Com just to have a version of it I don't need to mess with endlessly to get working.
