A flawed castle sim, but good nevertheless. While I do like the original SH better, this one has alot of cool features that I miss when I play it.

I'm glad to see support for it, on release it needed alot of work, the multiplayer barely even worked, if only it didnt need a powerhouse CPU I could play it LAN on my laptop vs friends =/

15-35% performance increase in openGL games like Doom3 and Quake 4...I think Nvidia just lost its edge, beat by ATI in DX9 AND OpenGL now.

Very fondly, yes. I loved the cinematics at the point where Boston and team venture into the asteroid, finding it to be a spacecraft/transport vehicle of sorts, whisking them away to another galaxy....

Still have the CD in one of my binders, but can't play (m)any DOS game(s) on my AthlonXP64 WinXP-32 rig.

Might as well give that one a shot, though I won't hold my breath.

Dosbox is your friend =)

This could have been prevented easily enough if you had just taken the time to pick your shit off the floor and not left it there for him to get at!

My poodles a smart little bastard and such a statement would never apply to him.

He takes the liberty to re-arrange the table chairs so that he can use them as steps to climb up to higher areas, namely the kitchen counter, and begin eating everything in sight.

Damn poodles, too smart for their own good...or for our good I suppose.

graphics come second, and gameplay comes first, with AI a close second.

It all makes perfect sense now.

I sure am glad I bought one of those radeon coupons off ebay for $20 bucks...and to think my friends said I was gonna get scammed, $10 upgrade, HL2:silver for $30 before it was even released...pretty nice deal for an ebay coupon =)

And DoD:S isnt that great, its an updated mod, nothing more nothing less...plus theres lotsa bitching in game about the fact that Valve charged for it.

Ill help you elaborate on that a bit

Friends, family, ME, my aspirations, my goals and dreams...life, and the pursuit of living it.

This comming from someone who was forced to take catholic schooling on the weekends to compliment my public schooling during the week. I've been exposed to the religious side of life, and I choose not to walk that path.

That "under god" part was added in 1954 under President Dwight D. Eisenhower...

In his words, "In this way we are reaffirming the transcendence of religious faith in America's heritage and future; in this way we shall constantly strengthen those spiritual weapons which forever will be our country's most powerful resource in peace and war"

I just found it interesting that it wasnt part of the original pledge.

EDIT: Well isnt that an interesting coincidence...

The Sims 2 Nightlife introduces the new Pleasure aspiration which allows Sims to lead a life filled with fun and exciting moments.

I smell a lawsuit.

Understandable, a message to developers in light of "Hot Coffee", but this thing about third-party mods is ridiculous.

It stands to reason that if you downloaded a mod you understand its not part of the original game and as such does not reflect the ratings of said game.

The same can be said of any product, modification outside the original intents and purpose of the product can not be held against the developers of it, how anyone could even begin to think that it does baffles me.

I had problems with the AI in the campaign. I controlled 3/4 of the map, yet they had the resources to rebuild their army 3 times complete with artillery. I couldn't do anything against them because artillery completely annihilates troops. It's a one-shot kill.

There's an artillery unit that has the advantage: Good against other artillery.

Some troops I would imagine as well but cannot say.

Problem is artillery is veeery expensive

The AI is easy, they send small waves of troops and all you really need is one fort plus a small group and they will NEVER break through...its all too easy if you ask me.

Plus they continue to attack in the same manner every time, and they seem to have an obsession with archers. I know this wont be true in the single player campaign, what with scripted attacks and such, but the AI in skirmish could use a little work.

The graphics are set to high-low mix, so if you think it doesnt look good, make sure you change the options. I really like the whole trading post thing, setting up a trade post on the native american camps and then training their troops is a neat addition that I see going much further if they choose to expand it.

Once you get the hang of the cards its really neat, and with the ability to customize your deck it adds a new level of strategy to the game.

All in all I had fun destroying the AI in a few skirmish games, it gets a little to easy once you get the hang of it but the game itself is very fun to play, but doesnt change much in terms of RTS innovations.
