    Recent Purchases

    OT has a thread dedicated to tracking recent purchases. It seems to get bumped to the top pretty regularly so I thought I would start one here, for items with a gaming slant.
    It may be interesting to see what all people buy but don't always bring up.
    Hardware and/or software.

    Re: Recent Purchases

    I'll go first:
    I just ordered this software (hasn't arrived yet):
    Will Rock - cause the demo was entertaining and now it's really cheap.
    Serious Sam 2 - Just because.
    Prey - Special Edition (preorder). Supposed to come with an extras DVD and some kind of pewter figure. I'm stocked on Prey.

    I just got an SATA2 drive. only 80 gig but all it has to do is hold the OS (XP64) and BF2. it cost $50, I know I could have gotten a 300 gig for $100, but 50 bucks is 50 bucks. Besides I already have a 250 gig that I'll use for storage

    Re: Recent Purchases

    just bought a Saitex St290 Pro joysyick from Radio Shack for $9 on clearance. Now I just need to learn to fly anyone know how to switch axis settings. Seems when I twist or move the stick in one direction the plane moves the opposite way. and the Heli is configured in controls for joystick but does not move forward or back.

    Is Admuncher better than Firefox + AdBlock + Filterset.G ?

    - Cheap $10 headset for Buu because he ripped the wire out of the previous cheap one This one looks a little more well built.

    Was going to look into getting Far Cry again today (used to own it but have been wanting to play it again).

    I'll have to look into that admuncher thing. Will it replace No Script as well?
