Zombie Driver looks like gta1/2.

I'm trying to use my dualshock 3 when playing the steam version of the Underworld/Anniversary demo. My dualshock 3 works perfect in pcsx2, but it won't enable gamepad support on these demos.

buy a 360 controller or find software that lets you emulate a 360 controller

New motionjoy allows emulation of 360 pad so I'll see.

well, you're gonna need to find one way or another to trick your computer into thinking it's a 360 controller.  A good number of games are built with the 360 controller in mind, and many will only support the 360 controller (unless you trick it).

Just be aware that the entire hud will still reflect the 360 controller.

Games are designed with 360 in mind

It's actually really awesome and has made PC gaming better this gen.  Controller support has been lame for most gams in the past, and even when it does work, you're stuck with shit like "Button 1, Hat Switch Up, X Axis".  Now you just plug in the 360 controller (or sync up the wireless one, which is what I do) and it works perfectly.  The hud and ui stuff for the game is all changed to xbox 360 controls, like ABXY etc.

Eh, I bought it.  It's $5.  Less than a burger and has an 88 on Metacritic.  Plus it's 2 years old so it'll run perfect on my rig.

Never played a Total War game.  Will give this a shot.

Free steam weekend on Dreamkiller.  Is this the first free weekend with a single player game?  Seems kinda silly since people can play through the game and beat it while it's free ;)

I'm guessing the game sucks though and isn't even worth the time if free.  I'm studying for finals this weekend so not gonna try.  Otherwise I'd at least give it a shot.

Machinarium and Samorost 2 bundle is $10 now (comes with soundtracks).  I might jump on this.  Good price for Machinarium alone.

my problem is that for some reason I got incredibly cheap.  Anything more than $5 and I feel like it's hard to justify.  I remember wanting to buy Call of Juarez 2 a while back and now that it's $15, it seems too expensive when I'm able to get all these good games from $2 to $5.

Alien Shooter is pretty awesome. It's an isometric shooter where you explore various levels of a research facility and mow down hordes of alien scum in order to get more money to upgrade your weapons and armor or buy more ammunition.
