Can anyone list me good indie games which can be played on my PC xbox controller ?
Keep an eye out for Braid, Limbo, Aquaria, Bastion, Trine. They're games I remember playing and definitely know have controller support built-in. Some may not be as indie as others, but definitely all from relatively small studios compared to mainstream titles. All of those are 1-3 years old but they still play well; I haven't been keeping up with the scene for current games to play.
A decent general strategy if you want to do some legwork, while waiting for suggestions, is to look at the most popular games from Xbox Arcade and see if they also have PC versions.
If starting your search from the list of PC games, low-hanging fruit to start checking would be any side-scrolling 2D style game. Notable exception is Terraria, which doesn't have controller support built-in, and a lot of its gameplay is keyboard/mouse dependent anyway, even if you used something like JoyToKey.
Is anybody else having troubles updating games via Steam? I can never get updates to run and then whenever I want to play a game, I get the "server too busy to handle your request" bit. Won't run them offline - I already tried that. I already changed a bunch of port settings on my router so Steam is accepted, but it just doesn't seem to work..
Steampowered forums are too much of a mess to sort through, just wondering if anybody had solved a similar issue.
Oh, and to remain somewhat on topic, if I can get Steam to run, I'll consider buying a new game.
Nothing for me today, just glad that they are finally having the SALE! But I'm posting to say you should definitely get Hard Reset if you have any interest in it. The plot wasn't much to write home about, but the action was fun and it's a no-brainer at this price.
Was thinking hard for CoD, but with the rampant hacking that goes on there, I'm really dissuaded from buying it for PC.
As someone who has stupidly stuck with the CoD franchise on PC since MW2, please avoid MW3. I haven't touched since January because of my disgust with Activision and IW. It's basically the same thing with laggy hosts and hacked games. At least Black Ops was decent...

So what I'm hearing is "Hey rebelx, save your $30 and apply it towards the $50 (after some sort of pre-order deal) for Black Ops 2." Am I right?
