Only thing that remotely interests me in there which I could probably play on this laptop that isn't too expensive or don't already have would be Zeno Clash. Sadly, the wallet has taken several hits recently thanks to this and a re-introduction to eBay not that long ago. Nevermind, not the most interesting of things to me anyway. There's always tomorrow

Still waiting for Just Cause 2 to go on sale.

I've seen the disc version for the PC going for about £15/$22 new on online stores (Well, for the UK anyway) or do you particularly want the Steam version?

Steam activation is required for Just Cause 2.

But I didn't know how cheap it was elsewhere...

Just bought Half-Life. Only £1.19. I'm hoping that they put The Orange Box up next, I got money to burn it seems.

Yup. Half-Life available for $1.99.

I'm tempted to get it, but I'd rather own it for a console so I can use a controller.

LOL I would NEVER play any games on onboard graphics.

Half Life's reduced price today ironically makes the Half Life Anthology a (slightly) worse deal than before.

Well, some of us use laptops.

My laptop has a dedicated graphics card that'll run just about everything

You can use a controller on your PC

Even your PS3 one

Aww, c'mon. I was trying to respond to their arrogant post.

But you're right, some laptops are like yours.

I also use integrated graphics, it limits what I can spend money on

lol my mistake

Ironically two of my favorite games, Altitude and Plants v. Zombies will run just fine with integrated graphics. Trackmania too.

Really like Team Fortress 2 though and if I tried that without my nVidia chip my laptop would explode. Literally.

I play TF2 on my laptop, some maps get slowdown though.
I tried the Flotilla demo, but it wouldn't start. Another game off my list I guess

I tried TF2 in the free weekend. It ran incredibly smooth for about 20 minutes. Then my laptop crashed horribly x_X

I never usually pay attention to integrated or not, unless it specifically says in the minimum requirements that some laptops may have problems.
I can run Doom 3 with no issues, and I think that's a pretty high-spec game. But the Freedom Force demo wouldn't start o_O

XP Service Pack 2 killed Freedom Force. I'm guessing the demo doesn't address it, but there's a patch for the full game to take care of that. It's an awesome game and plays just fine on my integrated graphics laptop, so if you can find it for cheap ($6 on GOG, maybe on sale on Steam for cheaper?) then pick it up fo sho if you're into superheros or action RPGs.

See I played Team Fortress 2 the other day for 5 hours with the highest performance/quality and never had any problems.

That might not be the greatest example though. There's higher tasking games on my system, like Fallout 3, Mass Effect, even Crysis Warhead.

And I hope that $40 Trackmania game gets one of those day sales. That's the last game I want and I still don't want to pay the current $27 or whatever.
