Who wants Burn Zombie Burn :?:


I'm interested, the other games in the bundle aren't really my cup of tea so I won't be buying it.


Done.

Keys available for the other games in the bundle, post a message here saying what you'd like. :)

Apologies for double-post

Plain Sight game happening in about an hour (1:30 GMT I believe), if anyone wants a Steam key PM me. Or just buy the Indie Royale.

I have 11 steam accounts with the only game of Hitman: Absolution. It's too much an ass pain to sell them - write me if you want one (please include e-mail you want to be attached to account).

So I got a Dell U2713HM. Paid £440 pounds which included delivery from Dell website.

Wow, I have to say this is such a shit product that anyone looking for a new screen should stay away from it.
This thing is advertised as "factory calibrated with accurate rich colors" yet upon plugging in the screen I noticed a yellow light bleed glow coming from the lower left corner of the screen.

Here is exactly what it looks like sitting in front of it, this is with the brightness reduced from the default 75 to 35 to try and reduce the light bleed.

Yes the colours are great when using it for web browsing or looking at pictures, but anything with a dark screen makes the monitor completely useless.

First thing I did was to look online and discover many more people with the same issue. On the offical dell forum, dell representatives are saying this about the issue:

we do not validate our monitors in a dark room. We use standard office lighting. Dell monitors do not have 100% backlight uniformity specification. As long as the center 2" circle meets our manufacturer specifications, it is acceptable.


:shock: So they call this within spec? :shock:

Next thing was to call Dell techincal helpline. The guy told me this problem had been reported before and the monitor was performing as intended, he could send a replacement but it would be exactly the same. Therefore I could have a refund based on a techincal issue which could not be resolved with a replacement.

It's still shocking that they are trying to sell this thing hoping people won't notice the obvious problems with it.

I have recently been re-playing Metroid Prime. My god, what a legendary game. The only of its kind, sadly. Good metroidvanias are rare enough as it is, but in 3D? Only been done once. (if you know of any other, please - enlighten me).

I think Metroid Prime is definitely one for the history books. If nothing else, it's because it had such low expectations from fans (and the press) only to become one of the highest-rated games of all time. One of the most pleasant surprises this world has seen. And to top it off, the sequel was every bit as good.

I assume you mean Metroid Prime 3, because Metroid Prime 2 was a daunting slog unless you knew the quicker safe way to traverse the Dark World without the suit upgrades. Which I didn't.
