Goddamnit Rockstar! (Share your first world problems)

So, I pre-ordered Max Payne 3 on steam about a week ago. Can't wait till it's out. As a bonus, you get both Max Payne's free. Problem is, I owned both of those on steam before (got 'em in a sale). So, I had to find a friend who didn't own it, and wanted it. I had none! Then, I go on steam today and see that the people who have pre-ordered Max Payne 3 get LA Noire for free too! But I already got that game in the christmas sale! Now I have three games just sitting there in my inventory, and it's pissing me off! Why must Rockstar give me free games that I already own!

Now that I've shared mine, let's have a first world problems thread! Share your silliest, yet most annoying problems that only come from you being well off.

My N64 won't work with the composite port in my new monitor, it made me slightly disappointed.

Ahhh I know that feel bro. I would be happily playing the N64 to this day, but it doesn't make any sound when I plug it into my TV.

Oh I know, we all have our problems here. Mine is that my iphone is full of games, music and books and I can't fit any more on it! damnation!!

Got this one 18 months ago, 23" 2048x1152, 150. Though I don't know what S-IPS is.

OT. I've been lonely all weekend, so I joined this forum and spent too much time here. Should be studying but procrastinated a lot, and now feel bad for that too.

S-IPS is the kind of panel, this one has great colour reproduction and viewing angles. Getting one for sub 200 is a hell of a bargain.

I take it yours is a CRT?

EDIT Oh, it may not be looking at google. Only time I have seen that is in CRTs, can I have a link to the model?

I want to play on L.A Noire and Shadow of the Colossus, but my addiction to Dragon Quest 8 won't let me. I don't know if that counts, but it's been bothering me all day!

Quite sure this is it, doesn't show up on the Dell site for some reason anymore. I thought it was a decent deal at the time. If the link doesn't work it's a Dell SP2309W.

Ah, it's a TN panel, that would explain the lower price. That's not to say it won't look good (the review seems to say it looks very good) but IPS is on another level when it comes to image quality.

I need to play that game again. Problem is I made Yangus use maces which are completely useless so I totally gave up on the end game dragons. I'm going to try a 3x fisticuff party this time probably.

I thought there must have been more to it. I don't understand much more than inches and pixels. Got a little LED TV for my uni house and thought I was so cutting edge haha.

Hey, Blizzard? Female characters of a given race do not need to all look the same.

Hey, Trion? What the hell possessed you to use Gamebryo? Also, why can my bahmi characters not have actual sefir tattoos?

Fallout 3 is incompatible with Windows 7 64-bit, and it doesn't like running on any more than DuelCore, where as I have QuadCore.

Why, oh why.

I've got Windows 7 64 bit and the Fallout 3 GOTY version works fine for me. May be because I've got the GOTY Steam version, or maybe it's just your computer.

Nah, I've got the Steam Version of the GOTY, and New Vegas, Oblivion, Skyrim, and other games that work on the same/similar Engines all work perfectly fine.

The problem is I'll start the game, and it'll run fine for around 5 or so minutes, and then just freeze. Apparently it's really common a problem for Win7 64 and QuadCore computers.

You can limit Fallout 3 to 2 cores in the ini. It's a really easy fix.

I've got an 8Gig mp3-player, resulting in me jugling albums all the time. I feel your annoyance.

I've already done that, and I'm running both steam and FO3 in Administrator mode, so I have no idea what I can do about it.

Maybe the file is being over-ridden?

Did you set it to read only after?

No, if it was being over-ridden that would have stopped it so you did the right thing.

I'm not sure what else, after I came back from not playing it for months it started doing what you described even though the fix had worked. I never bothered to go back to it (disc GOTY).

Killing Floor has a new bundle which gives you the only female character there is plus the game. But I already have it so I can't play her >:I

I want to play Team Fortress 2, but it's difficult finding a game that doesn't lag or drop my framerate on this laptop.

Oh how I wished I had a desktop. :(

I will take those games off of you.......

:D?

OT: Don't really have any.

I want to get a 3DS, but the game I want most for it is America only and the fucking region lock prevents me from doing so...

I just went through 40 hours without any food and I was damn hungry. Oh wait...

I burned my toast this morning.

I lived off the grid for four hours today. Goddamned power cut throughout half of the Fifth District...

May I have your extra copy of L.A. Noire though? Since you already have the game? Pretty please?

kiri2tsubasa:

I feel your pain man, I did the same thing!

Still ate it though.

I hate that I cant skip the company logos when you boot up some videogames. Dammit I know who the companies that made them are now let me shoot Brazilians in the face in slow-mo Rockstar you bastards.

i tied to fix my y key sticking on my laptop. i broke it and it won't go back on, so now i have a hole where it used to me. its on a laptop too, so can't just get a new keyboard, have to plug an external one in. feels bad man

I just found out that Dragon's Dogma only allows one save file, as it's connected to your PSN account. In other words, my brother cannot play at the same time as me, and vice versa.
Because of this development, we've decided not to buy DD, and I'm somewhat disappointed.
But seriously Capcom, what the fuck?!
