For those who have not palyed mass effect 2, you can get the game free now. Ubisoft and other publishers would from time to time post free games to download.
Well, now you are starting to redeem yourself, thread!
In case you don't remember, I posted a few pages / weeks back about how this is supposed to be the MUSTACHIAN forum, and how ya'll informing me of some of what's out there - which won't run on my 2008 laptop - was generating brand new expensive desires
(like, witcher 3 won't even run on a Pentium i3. an i5 is the minimum
requirement. wtf!? So I'd be looking at at least a $900 computer, and that's if I built it myself)...
Turns out Mass Effect 2 will run on a pentium core duo just fine, even at the higher settings.
And free, that's a nice mustachian price.
ME2 is the reason I haven't posted anything on any of the MMM boards in a couple weeks. After my second playthrough, I bought ME1 for $15, which should both last me a few hours playtime on its own and make a 3rd (maybe 4th or 5th too) playthrough of ME2 more fun.
Also found a copy of Witcher (1) on ebay for 10 bucks, just started it yesterday.
Meanwhile, I got 6 new cooperative 2 player games for the PS2 after finishing Champions of Norrath and Perfect Dark with my wife, (who still keeps calling me a nerd, but recently spends almost as much time on gaming as I do :P )
So, yeah, thanks. Between these 9 new games, it should help hold off the temptation to spend a chunk of money on a computer that I really really don't need!
