So I finished Bioshock 2 (yeah, I'm slow). As far as how I'd rank the series, I'd go 1>Infinite>2. Not that it's a bad game, it just didn't have the freshness that 1 did at the time (and Infinite by extension with the move to Columbia). I did like the weapon variety though, and the storyline despite the reused setting.

I actually played it through BC on the Xbone and wow, is it ever some of the worst emulation I've ever seen. By about the third mission you start coming across entire sections of the stages that are transparent when they shouldn't be, walls that are missing their textures completely so you're looking through the wall and directly into the water or another room that you can't go into because there's actually a wall you can't see there. In the later stages all the prisoner models are semi-transparent so they look like weird ghosts, and the best one was when you first find Eleanor when she's locked in the chamber... she has no head. This one particularly confused me because all the other models did. I couldn't quite figure out if she was supposed to be some weird reanimated corpse or if it was a glitch. They really should not be letting people pay money for something so obviously completely untested.

Weird timing. I'm playing through Bioshock 2 for the first time right now. Yes my backlog is actually that bad. I just finished Infinite for the first time a few days ago, though I've played that before, I didn't go far into it, I got to about the part where you first meet Elizabeth and then never got back to it.

Either way, nice video @Nefty . It's an interesting what-if take on what the next game would be like if/when it ever actually happens.

Peggle was already free on Origin once. And then it stopped being free at some point, and now it's free again. Oh EA.

i have windows 10 64 bit and my antivirus is windows defender and it was stopping the game from running, i looked in the settings of windows defender and the controlled folder access was on ( i had this turned off before ) so i turned it off again and the game runs like it use to.

Great. Thanks for the information. I'll keep this in mind for future reference in case somebody else has the same problem.

Get a free copy of The Witcher when you subscribe to the GOG mailing list. If you haven't played any of The Witcher games yet, please hang your head in shame for the rest of the day.

In the next update (a day or two from now), you'll be able to override the default save file location by adding a SaveRoot=xxx line into the game.ini file.

e.g.
SaveRoot=D:\SavedGames\TotalMinerData

To edit the game.ini file, right click Total Miner in your steam library, select Properties, Local Files, Browse Local Files.

You'll need to be more specific about when you last played for anybody to really tell you what is new since then. But you should be able to get a general idea what new additions there are with a quick look through the topics here http://totalminerforums.net/index.php?board=2.0
