We’re good for GO this Friday, 15/7.
The EDGE has acquired new laptop in the form of an Asus G73SW – primarily for graphic design/work purposes of course, but I’ve also been busy building it up and kitting it out for the next gaming foray. This new 17″ stealth powerhouse (review to come after further testing) will allow us to now step up to the current crop of games during most missions as Wood will be promoted and approved to use Deepthought, upping the minumum spec’d PC which has been holding us back to date. The only known drawback being Windows 7’s compatibility issues with V8SC3, but as an alternative, GRID is now on the table, along with DIRT3!
The EDGE encourages legitimate forms of software acquisition and provides the following list of genuine games on hand so that agents can seek out their own genuine copies. Many of the titles are now available for as little as $10. Titles from the “Games Installed” STEAM list should be a priority! Please share any bargains you find in the “For Sale” section of the blog.
