They didn't have Cthulu, so I got F.E.A.R instead, which is pretty boring and not very scary.
Meanwhile, many people have been telling me how Company of Heroes is the best game evar, so let's get that.
The battle system has changed completely but I like it. For once I'm trying to beat an RPG when it's newish and am not using a walkthrough so I'm not sure if I'm missing out on half the game, but I have free time, I can always play it again later..
Bottom line, I like it better than 10 and 8. Best one since 7, at least.
It goes beyond that soon, there's a lot from Shadow out of Time.
It has a gamma adjustment if you need it brighter.
I know what you mean about Attack of the Fishment, though. Not many games have made me that tense.
I've cranked the brightness in the game to the max, as well as on my monitor, and I still can't see shit half the time. I bumbled around for nearly five minutes in that part with the dismembered dude on the alien device trying to find my way back to the door I came through. I just could not see anything.

"Only two very brave UK-based journalists said, 'You know what, Gears of War is a great game but it's like what Quake was a few years ago.
"Why are people loving it so much? It's like added production value, incredible cutscenes and the best ever graphics ever. I'm sure it's going to be a great success, I can't wait to play it, but let's face that graphics are still number one," Tascan continued.
Some of the re-recorded vocal tracks are just retarded. Case in point: Mathew Sweet's "Girlfriend." I don't like this song anyway, but it sounds like Weird Al did the vocals. They also did a fair job butchering "Them Bones." Unfortunately "Trogdor" also had a new vocal track thrown down (and not by Strongbad ).
It feels like they just didn't try with the vocals this go around.
