cool dude. now if I could find the time to work on that side project I've been meaning to work on. :) Also, glad to see that work is being put into the API.

Thanks for the advice, though it seems like we're split here. Maybe I'll start it up and see where it goes.

I'm was about to start playing through this on PC (Amazon sale FTW). I own the original on the xbox 360. I dislike analog stick controls for shooters. Worth it to play through The Darkness (original) before I start a play through of The Darkness 2?

Just wanted to let you guys know about a Trackmania 2 tournament that's going on at a gaming event called GEEX in Salt Lake City, Utah. This is the first North American tournament officially sponsored by Ubisoft. The tournament is also sponsored by Intel. The tournament is free to participate in and consists of an online qualifying event which will narrow the field down to 10 competitors that will compete live on stage at GEEX on October 14th. Prizes include a custom Trackmania 2 gaming laptop from Intel and Core i5 processors for runners up. If anything, I hope this is the beginning of an eSports scene in North America surrounding Trackmania and we want to get as much participation and support as possible to show Ubisoft that we want more events like this.

Get more of the details and sign up here: http://geexshow.com/tournament.php?id=14

I'm one of the organizers of the event as a whole and the organization of the tournaments. Let me know if you have any questions.

Btw, I've been frequenting the Giant Bomb server and it's pretty awesome. Good competition and crazy maps. Awesome community of course.

What about Portal 2? They didn't seem to care that purchasers of the PS3 version got free copies of the steam version. Nutso I say.

Their quote says that only a "slice of our team" has been working on.  It can't be something huge.  Maybe an episodic re-release of the first game?  On PC perhaps?  That's something that fits the

"opportunity for players who aren't familiar with the franchise to finally jump on board".

I'm totally going to keep playing the game.  It's too crazy not to.

I think @Make_Me_Mad kind of clarified what I thought I already understood.

I've just finished the second chapter and while I'm loving the game... I have no idea what's going on.  The action is some of the best I've experienced in any game... but I'm having trouble following all the madness.


All I know is this (spoilers?): girl is not pure blood... has to fight some chick in red leathers (who drives her motorcycle over angels faces)... girl eventually ends up in a bottom of a lake in a coffin where she is released by some dude who she kills... dude's son is out for revenge... now girl doesn't remember what's going on except for the fact that she needs (gets?) to kill angels... ALSO guns on feet, clothing made out of hair, and lollipops.

Without spoiling anything... can someone give me a basic run down of the plot of this game?  I'm going to keep playing regardless, but it would be nice to know something.  Thanks!
