Wait, there's a fourth one?  I thought the upcoming Revolution one was #3?

Nope, AC1, AC2, Brotherhood, Revelations.
The first one had a main character, then it was the same guy in the last three. The upcoming one is a new main character, thus AC3.

I'm kind of pumped for AC4. I've beaten them all except for the newest one. That time period could be interesting if done right. I'm reading that the main character might be a native american.

dammmmmmit. I wish I had money for a PS3. The Show is going to be so cool. I think I'd waste all of my time playing the Diamond League mode.

Or you could just diagnose your one blue screen and run it natively in Windows 7 ;)

All games in WINE are a crapshoot, esp anything remotely recent.  I'm not saying this as an MS fanboy, I'm being serious.

Yeah, EA is pretty shady. I hate how you need online passes for their games.

ME3 would've been a day-one purchase for me if not for Origin.  I'll likely cave at some point but between Origin, what I saw in the demo, and what I've heard from the tubez so far, I'm perfectly content waiting a bit.

for some reason this computer ran like crap with Windows 7 Premium on it.

maybe they forced it when they probably should not have.

I installed Ubuntu, and it is running like a dream.

I really do think my problems with Linux were simply due to a crappy bought-it-on-craigslist-for-cheap computer.

I understand that running things in WINE is not ideal. But to be truthfully honest, I just want Steam for the Community features. the Messenger, Game tracking, etc. Not so much for the actual Games at this point. we'll see how it goes.
