Controls on this game (DS1 at least) are f'ing terrible for keyboard mouse...terrible as in barely (and not worth) playing.

Did you play with vsync disabled? I didn't notice any problems with the controls once doing that. With vsync enabled however it's completely unplayable.

Force VSYNC disable in the game launcher associated with your video card, I know Nvidia and AMD both have that feature.....and you'll be back to normal. I had to play with a joypad however, it never felt right with kbm, but the game was designed with pad in mind so I wasn't really surprised.

If all else fails and you want Vsync in Dead Space, then use D3DOverrider found in RivaTuner to force triple buffering along with Vsync.

The forced triple buffering aspect of D3DOverrider can greatly help the playability of other games as well, Just Cause 2 being one example.

Holy! 10$ I would bite but probably not able to buy it in Canada.

Also, finally a rebate on the DD format compared to the physical.

Alice Madness Returns is $7.50 on Amazon. It also qualifies for the December promo code, so you can get it for $2.50 if you have one of the promo codes. You can also use the key and download it on Origin.

I guess I'm jaded. After the sales that Steam, Amazon, Gamersgate, etc. offered last month; 20% off looks positively anemic. I'm going to do what I always do and play my huge backlog while waiting for the summer craziness.

20% is nothing compared to the Amazon and Steam sales but still.

2 weeks ago I bought Dawn of Discovery (only available on D2D), I would have waited if I knew this was coming

This deal is nice if you still haven't pre-ordered ME3, since it's not available on Steam, this will cost you around 43-47$ for ME3....

About all that game is worth. I bought it used for the Xbox 360 in a buy 1 get 1 sale. I ended up paying $7.50 for it and felt a bit cheated.

I picked it up for $5 on Steam couple years back. I did finish the game and was sad how it had so much potential it had. But the dumb AI, held it back from greatness.

I bought this game for a couple of my Steam accounts and had a blast playing it in co-op when friends come over. I thought it was a pretty cool game.

Amazon has Crysis 2 download for $9.99, or $4.99 if you have one of their $5 off promotional codes.


I could have sworn that I had 3 of those $5 off promotional codes, but I can only find two of them in my email inbox. One of them I used to get Dead Space 2 for free, and the other one I used on Need For Speed Hot Pursuit to get that down to $5. I was about 95 percent positive that I had a 3rd code, but I've searched my inbox and can't find it.

Oh well.... I guess I'll pick up Crysis 2 at a later date. I have tons and tons of games to play, so no rush...
