@jesus_phish: Oh, and I never played Blackgate, but wondered how it was. How is it?

@zolroyce: Yes, that's why I said a 'sort' of anagram, but not entirely. I didn't know any other way to put it, and anagram is the closest thing it comes to.

@jesus_phish: @ozzdog12: You know, now that I remember back since you guys replied, while I remember him dying in Origins (though I believe you that he was sent to Blackgate), he was in City at the very beginning, one of the first villains you see actually! So that answers that question. Also, I'm not sure if they consider Origins canon or not, I just think they should. I'm probably in the minority here, but I liked Origins more the City, while Asylum is still the best to me.

Wow. Yeah, sorry looks like you have to start over.

NTM marked this as the best answer

Never mind. I fixed it. I just had to go to the product website and download the driver. I feel dumb. Anyways, thanks to anyone that would or could have helped.

So, probably dumb of me to do, but I downloaded a driver update, and once the thing 'updated' my drivers, all of a sudden I don't have working sound. I use the Dolby Home Theater v4. Now it says "The Current Dolby audio driver version is 7.2.8000.17 and the software expects driver version 7.2.7000.6. Please install a valid driver and software application combination." And when hovering over the sound image on the bottom right of the screen, it says "No Audio Output Device is installed". I tried to both recover as I had backed it up prior to installing everything, but that didn't work, and then I tried to roll back the drivers, and that didn't work either. I'm not sure where to find the correct driver to download and install. I'm really hoping I didn't screw this up... I got the PC for free from my boss' boss months ago, which was awesome, but I don't have anything from when it came packaged other than the mouse, keyboard, and screen. Any help would be nice, thanks.

Initially, when three came out, Solid Snake. Now I like them equally.

Aw, yes. Alan Wake can be quite intense. I love Alan Wake, but unfortunately some of that intensity comes from its shortcomings, or what I find unrealistic. Basically, it's not so easy to run away from enemies as you have very limited sprint time, so attempting to run can often become intense.

I don't think it's scary, but F.E.A.R. is the best choice here. I think F.E.A.R. 2, even though cliche in how it does its fear, is scarier than the first, but the first game has slightly better shooting I think. The difference between the two is that the first F.E.A.R. to me was extremely intense my first time playing on its hardest setting due to the intelligent A.I., while the Alma stuff didn't really phase me, but Alma in two was more effective than the Replica Soldier A.I. in two. Dead Space is also a fantastic game, but only under certain conditions is it scary.

Edit - Oh, I suppose I should read through the comments before posting. I see you already said you played F.E.A.R. and Dead Space.

For me, the first time I stepped on Aegis VII in Dead Space. Being in the Ishimura the entire game and stepping out to look into a huge crater and the red-ish skybox was a nice surprise to me. There are a lot really, and these kind of things are very important to me in games, but that comes to my mind, and the reason I reassessed my feelings on Dead Space and I finally came around to the game (as I had initially not liked the game too much), it then turning out to be one of my favorite games ever, and one of my favorite series.

@gunstarred: I assumed you'd be able to figure it out on your own, but I thought I'd try and help anyways just in case. What I found weird was that it wasn't even an item you can or have to use later, and only exclusive to that one section. I didn't have a problem with it, but maybe it was for the better.
