Day 2 .. Nothing really interesting except maybe CoD but I have't played that since we had a server ages ago.

it is good, especially if you have the time to really sit down and listen/read the story. You have a good/bad thing kinda like KOTR light/dark force thing going on cept they call it paragon/renegade. The combat is decent, kinda third person squad and the squad actually does a decent job without taking all the fun away from you. you get abilities and such to use and they depend on your class. My main gripe is the PC version doesn't come tweaked for the PC. there are guides out there and mods you can DL to help tweak it to look decent. The LoD values are screwed so all the textures look muddy all the time, and some of the textures ARE muddy no matter what LoD you use on them but the mods really clean it up and make it enjoyable, i just think its ridiculous that you have to do that yourself. The other thing that bugs me is many dialogue decisions are very counter-intuitive, you think you're picking something that would be like very paragon and it turns out to be renegade, the description of your choice sometimes just doesn't match up with what you thought you character was going to do with it. I havent managed to finish it because i ended up losing my savegame :/

i bought the back to the future game. looks fun :) can't decide on rage, i heard it's pretty but very dull.

in case anyone missed it from those reddit links in the first post, you can buy Deus Ex: Human Revolution on Amazon for $10 and activate it on steam. i just did and also got a $5 off a game purchase coupon when i ordered. not a bad deal. :)
