    I grabbed the GTA4 complete. I'm wondering if I should plug my controller in for this one?

    Hell no! Keyboard and mouse, trust me. The aiming with a keyboard and mouse is an absolute must if you ask me. That's why they have "auto-lock" on consoles because you can't aim for shit.

    Be ready for one of the best gaming experiences ever.

    Keyboard and mouse work perfectly fine in GTA4, unless you really prefer a controller.

    Wow, to play GTA4 I have to be logged into Steam, Games for Windows Live, and Rockstar Social Club all at the same time. I'm not one to complain about stuff like this... but jesus fucking christ.

    EDIT: Now on update #2 of games for windows live. I've had to restart the game twice now to install all this crap.

    EDIt 2: Games for windows live just stopped responding while updating. I've spent nearly an hour creating accounts, restarting and updating since the game was initially installed. I should have pirated this pos.

    I'm sure the game is good but this is ridiculous.

    That version of Magic kinda sucks. The program works well but the AI is basic and the deck editing is shit.
    The Microprose version of magic is superior in gameplay but only works properly under Win98.

    It could be worse, off and on all day I've tried to play it. Every time I've gotten a failed to contact key server error. Apparently this isn't uncommon with games on sale, all they say is you'll end up getting a key sooner or later. It's always nice to buy a game and be unable to play it.

    Other than what I've been complaining about, the game is good. Definitely worth the price.

    I actually quite liked the MtG: Duels of the Planeswalkers games, despite their limitations, until I bought the latest expansion; now all the cards/decks I had unlocked have somehow become locked again. :(
