Actually, as long as you keep your steam-ID and it's password, you can download Steam games that you've bought anytime to any computer. o3o
Yeah, but there's also the problem of: I have a limited monthly allowance on internet that I have to share (ten gigs) with other people. Which I'm hoping to get the consensus that they'll let me use the remaining five gigs (we just got ten this month) to use on the Dragon Age 2 demo on Steam.

Also my computer is five years old and only had a ram upgrade and some graphics processors put in last year.

And the computer is a dying platform. Gosh I wish I could just hurry up and graduate from college so I can get a job, move out, and get some cable internet. :(

The good news is I've pretty much learned how to calculate byte consumption.

Gray is one of the cooler characters I've seen in an FPS. That speech/insane rant when they're about to crash was pretty epic.

I'm just worried I'm going to keep playing, and the game will end.

My only complaint ( and it is a very minor one ), is that the points you get from skill shots don't seem to be that closely related to the difficulty of pulling off such a shot. Getting a Hotshot / Bluff kill with the sniper is way easier than, say, a Gunslinger skill shot with the revolver ( which requires you to kill more than one enemy, on top of everything ), but unless I'm mistaken, they're worth the same amount of points.

I'm worried that Bulletstorm is just going to be absurdly short. I just want Dragon Age 2 to hurry up and get here. Lady Hawke is supposed to be generally hot from what I've read.

There we go. Fist it was the FemShepard, now it's Lady Hawke. Which is a throwback I'm sure. :)

Bulletstorm's campaign is supposedly 9 hours long. I reckon I'll finish it in about 7!

Female Hawke is also nothing like female Shepard, at least not according to my impression of her in the demo. It's the voice. Unlike FemShepard, she sounds ... soft.

Well, have you heard what she sounds like? I'm reminded of Leliana, only slightly tougher and with no accent. But still not what I'd call intimidating, as she should be ( or at least have the option of being! ). I was disappointed, frankly. With both. Male Hawke's problem is just that the voice is so forgettable, though. I always imagined he'd sound like Duncan from DA:O. Probably because they've both got awesome beards.

Don't let the demo ruin your whole experience. Heck from what you say they don't even let you customize Hawke. (Which I'm sure BioWare would not leave out)

There's worse V.O. out there.

Do not open that link! When I did it took me to the escapist and then I had a virus attack my computer from some link off of it

What happened was I opened it, it pulled up what looked like the escapist with a few pictures of a Samus aran in the blue skin tight suit. Then the site automatically opened up a new window and a virus hit my PC. One of those that claims it will run a free system scan for you and wont let you close out till you accept. I had to control alt delete and then restart my PC to get out of it. I only had that page and elliquiy open at the time, and I doubt it came from elliquiy

Im not saying you did that on purpose, I just felt a warning needed to be given before everyone opened it.

I am going retro today, and playing Tetris, on my original "heavy enough to be used as an impromptu mace, ugly and blocky as hell, and outdated technologically on a scale comparable to the abacus" Gameboy.

I hope Bulletstorm gets more multiplayer modes. I'd gladly pay for deathmatch DLC, or something. Anarchy mode would probably be tons of fun, except playing a mode where you absolutely have to cooperate and coordinate your kills to maximize your points ( which is the only way of progressing ), is next to impossible with three strangers and no communication.
