Deus Ex Human Revolution-Director's Cut...$3.99 in the 12 hr bin. That was one of my favorite games on the Xbox 360. I bought the DC version for PC in the summer sale on the last day for $5.99. I will definitely revisit this one down the road. For those who haven't indulged it yet. The game is awesome IMO. Great story. Terrific choice mechanics. Tough bosses. Superb graphics. great overall game play. It mixes a futuristic noire type style with intriguing choices.

I grabbed Bulletstorm for $3.99 tonight. It is a GFWL...So you'll need an Xbox Live profile to download and play it glitch free. It uses my XBL gamertag & profile. But the game plays beautifully. Terrific graphics. And great game mechanics. I only played 35 minutes. But I can already see this one is going to be fun. Sort of reminds me of Enslaved...meshed with Duke Nukem...with gigantic guns & weapons. I tried multiplayer a bit too. And it feels terrific. I'll finish a SP campaign then give MP a full run. I was always curious about this game on Xbox 360. I'm glad I waited and got it on PC. Because it looks awesome in full 1080p 60.

Yeah it's not the Xbone so it's total garbage for scummy loyalists.

I was hoping for a little more of a discount on it, but 20% off for Far Cry 4 is pretty good. 33% off with the season pack included apparently too.

Anybody else excited or interested in grabbing this app for Steam.

It's listed in the Steam Sale. I plan to give it a try. And if I really like it...bump my RAM up from 16GB-32 or even 64GB to really optimize its potential. Does anyone know whether Microsoft use a similar memory management scheme with the Xbox One?

I would love to buy more ram. I just can't bring myself to do it. I need low clearance ram for my HTPC. The last set I bought was something like $75 for 2x8g. The cheapest I've seen the equivalent lately is $100-110. Just can't do it.

I never liked ram drives since I always felt like they were redundant with the file cache windows already has, but way less flexible. I have a little program that can read a folder directly into the cache so it has the same effect without all of the drawbacks. Don't get your hopes up though, it doesn't make load times completely go away, it's usually just a hair faster than SSD load times. If you wanna dump money into speeding up loads you're better off raiding a few SSDs than buying enough memory to squeeze a 30gb game into a ram drive.
