I think the second problem has been solved through game design- nobody (at least, nobody sensible) makes platforming segments in first person games anymore. Half Life 2 and Metroid had them, but soon after that they died out because people realised that they were awful.

I only realised that nobody does them anymore during the Duke Nukem quicklook, when the Giantbomb guys were marvelling at the platforming segments ripped straight out of the late 90s.

There are still games where you need positional awareness, don't get me wrong- Portal, for example. But I don't think they need as much pinpoint accuracy as previous games once did.

Voted for Saints Row, bought Saints Row. Not doing so would just be improper.

I might get Arma anyway if it's on offer, the rest of the game looks interesting.

@kumquat: DayZ is switching to a standalone game soon and everyone who bought Arma II are going to have to pay again to play it so you may want to hold off on that

Looks like I'm not going to be playing Day Z ever. I've owned Arma 2 for years and bought Operation Arrowhead last week (mainly because I like flying helicopters and there are many more in OA) and was thinking about trying the mod out some time. Now I say "Fuck DayZ" out of protest. Bohemia Interactive already screwed people with the whole Arma2 to Operation Arrowhead bait and switch, and they seem to be willing to do it again. I have a feeling this company won't last beyond Arma3 with these stupid business tactics.

Isn't it a mod by another developer? I don't see much wrong with them wanting to get a return for their efforts, especially seeing as it's become so popular.

My broadband got upgraded today, Gabe knew this and is starting the sales tonight. I can feel it.
