    Compatibility issue?

    Ok, I have the xbox 360 wireless controller for my PC, and I now have the Logitech MX5500 Keyboard and Mouse set, (which is Bluetooth). Now they will not work together. I didn't think the xbox controller was Bluetooth, otherwise, why would it interfere with the keyboard and mouse and Vice versa?

    Silverfall

    I have just tried the demo for Silverfall, and it is great!!! If you like the Dungeon Siege/Titan Quest/Diablo type of games, you will definitely like Silverfall. The graphics and gameplay are great. The caveat that I have found so far, is the map does not rotate, instead you have an arrow...

    Gran Turismo 4...

    Don't waste your money on Gran Turismo 4 for the Playstation 2. The game is beautiful but plays like s**t. I have been a fan of the GT games since the first one. I have had or have the first 3. Just got this today, and I am so disappointed in the game.
