Day 12: Steam Holiday deals Drive Meatboys and Deus Ex home

We’re reaching the end here but the goodies keep falling into place, here we are with an epic showing.

The recommendations are pretty easy here as Tech2k would vouch, if you don’t have New Vegas… why not? GTA is a classic even though IV goes into way too serious of a game design, you can always get the ENB mod for San Andreas though and upgrade your experience heavily. Driver is a bit of a trip but if you like that go for it and Super Meat Boy is retro platform goodness.

Did I forget anything? Of course not, DEUS EX, it’s one of the most interesting titles of the year and visually stunning. A lot of time and care crafted the entire game and I have yet to experience it again in full DX11 mode. Make the time and play this game, especially for $16.99

Those who want the objectives, here’s the missions!

  • Day of Defeat: Source – Valve Gift Grab 2011 – DoD:S – Collect three gifts dropped by opponents
  • Super Meat Boy – The Golden Gift! – Complete all levels in “The Kids Xmas” chapter in super meat world IN ONE PLAY SESSION.
  • Universe Sandbox – Snowball Earth – Freeze the Earth by moving further from the Sun
  • Spacechem – Polar Expedition – Reach the south pole of Semimir IV
  • Puzzle Agent 2 – Christmas Tree Census – Spend over $202,259 of taxpayer dollars; The number of Christmas trees cut in Minnesota in 2007 (Source: USDA)
  • Flight Control HD – Snowball – Land 5 helicopters in a row on the Windy airfield

That’s all of the goods for today, Day 13 is tomorrow so I’ll see you then!

 

iCEnhancer 1.2.5 is available!

It’s here, only a few weeks of waiting too! iCEnhancer 1.2.5 for Grand Theft Auto IV on the PC!

Download now! – Download link from GTA mods grabs you a link to mediafire, not sure if the 102mb+download is too much bandwidth use for the servers there or not. Either way don’t panic when you see the text file.

Okay with that said, you can also check out the Youtube clips below from the finished 1.2.5 for a glimpse of what you’re getting into. keep in mind that you really do need some higher end hardware with a lot of video memory. I was running it on a 4850 and it looked great but I was handicapped by my lack of VRAM available.

For those wondering, this isn’t the final version of the mod, iCEnhancer has pictures listed on a facebook page to show off a secret WIP build going on. 🙂 The header image is taken from that album.

Tweak your PC copy of GTA IV – iCEnhancer 1.2.5 coming soon

Gaming often falls into a pit where you get what you get and that’s it. On the PC side you get lucky when a dev doesn’t lock up their game from further tweaking. GTA IV is one of those fortunate titles and today we have a glimpse of iCEnhancer 1.2.5 coming to the game soon.

What does this do? It makes GTA IV look close to photo realistic and absolutely stunning. I feel lame for buying it on the 360 back in the day because now I need to buy and beat the entire thing over again on the PC but at least it’ll look great in the process. If you’re not sure what the fuss is about, look at the clip below. I advise watching in at least 480p though because there’s a lot to see in this upgrade.
