Ah Irony!

So I got a copy of Ghost Recon with my card but it doesn't work. Leading me to wonder about the card, so I did a little snooping on the net and found out that it needs a patch to work with the MSI card it was bundled with. Too funny! You would think that if they bundle a game with a graphics card it would work right out of the box.
Furthermore they don't have this patch available online, you have to e-mail them and they send it to you. So I feel reassured that the problem is on the software side. Even funnier is some of the below:

Thanks for the information. I'm glad I looked under General Information. I figured it was for the gaming side of it instead of the, "how do you get this thing to run" side.
What a crock! You buy a new card featuring a game that you must first get a patch for to run.
Great way to get someone to buy something else from you, donn't ya think? - NOT!"

I must concur. Turns out Ubi really dropped the ball on this one letting their game get bundled on a type of CD that wasn't right or didn't have the correct code. Only reinforces my desire to stay away from Ubi games.

    New Year, same stuff going on. Looking forward to warmer weather, but it was nice around Christmas time here. Everytime I see a snowstorm somewhere…

    I had a good time at the Distant Worlds Final Fantasy symphony concert last night at Jones Hall. Forgot my phone at home so I don't have any…
