Same, on lowest resolution with minimal effects it still runs so slow on the tutorial I didn't even bother trying to play an actual game. I could already hear cries of 'N00B!!' Even though Half-Life Source/2/ep1 and Portal 1 and 2 run beautifully, episode 2 slows a bit though. Basically no other Source games give me trouble but that one, no clue why.

Portal 1 and Half-Life will run fine on low settings and no other memory hogging apps like Mozilla. But TF2, and really most of my steam games including BIT.TRIP RUNNER </3 don't run so well.

Including Left4Dead 2. It doesn't work at all.

Editedit: Also, we're very offtopic. So, maybe if we;re going to TF2 and Half-Life Engine speak, we should head to a new or current topic?

The Journey Down, the best adventure game since Grim Fandango, is now permanently half priced at £5/$7.

http://skygoblin.com/the-journey-down/

It was originally £10/$15 for the first chapter, but given the unknown amount of chapters and the length of chapters, it was deterring people since they didn't know how much they ultimately had to invest. It's now £5/$7. Took me about three hours to finish blind, will take more or less depending on how good you are at adventure games. The production values and general design are utterly top notch.

To be honest, I'd have much prefered a longer development cycle and all of the chapters making up a whole game in a single release. I don't understand the marketing/design decision of episodic content at all. Still, it is a wonderful little gem so far, and if it wasn't worth picking up before for anyone, it certainly is now!

In the case of Skygoblin, the episodic setup was required to make sure TJD was commercially viable.
But yes, TJD is pure gold! I'd been super excited about it ever since Theo first created the WIP thread for the free version, on the AGS forums. As soon as he announced they were going to be re-making it, I was pestering him to setup a pre-order so I could throw my damned money at him already! Cheesy
Also yeah, it definitely brings in the same epic vibe that made Grim Fandango so awesome! :3
BTW, I take it you're an adventure game fan, then? Cheesy

Mhm! I do them all the time at the site I stream for, currently playing through Beyond A Steel Sky for the first time (along with Spelunky, ramping up for the XBLA release).

You mean like Space Quest/King's Quest etc?

These were part of a somewhat related (pretty much by name alone) series by Sierra games. Adventure games are generally point and click with puzzles, like Monkey Island and Sam & Max. But yes, all the 'Quest' games are adventure games too.

TBH, I'm not actually sure if there's much I want to buy that'll come within my price-range...

[...]

Not all of them! Interactive Fiction are considered Adventure games too! In fact, They where here BEFORE the point and click!

Not to mention the early graphical adventure games that you'd have to type in commands for the character in order to interact with the environment.

Also, some IF are made for storytelling and not for puzzles.
