Dude! You can't get SSS ranking if you don't get all 110%!


Well, I'm like 95% now.

I really need some Grog since I'm posting in a MI thread though. lol.

All kidding aside, that looks like a very nice level editor.

Yea... I was a bit concerned when they first revealed it... thought the drop specific rooms down was a bit "meh" but the painting details (Boxes, etc) while note making up completely for complete room design , does go a long way in helping unique designs.

hopefully people will get tired of the nostalgia trip at some point

seems to be reaching saturation point with all the reboots, remakes, etc. etc.

I do kind of agree on this... but at the same time I would really like another Monkey Island game.

That being said, Gilbert has stated that he wouldn't do another one unless he owned the IP (he said this in one of his blogs a year or so ago, he softened it to "i don't know if I could..." for this one, but I get the sense that, really, he still wants to own the property.

Disney isn't going to sell it off. Nevermind that I don't see them doing it in general, but Monkey Island kind of competes with the Pirates of the Carribean franchise (seriously... how many direct PotC attraction references are in the original), so they're definitely not letting it go.

This is way more than needed to be written, but I'm 75% drunk and feel like ranting. lol.

Agreed, there are lots of things I liked about The Secret World.

I actually really wish they'd somehow convert TSO into a single player game when it dies... there's so much good lore and story in it to see, but I'd rather just run through the thing solo.

Trying to cash in on the Freddy games?
Glad to see I'm not the only one who had that thought.

Not quite sure how you're equating it to Freddy (especially since no mechanics were shown). As the story indicated, it's actually a setting in The Secret World (and at least to me, the Amusement Park area of that zone was actually one of the more fun sections of the game). Seems like they just took an idea they had already developed and adapted it into a single player experience.

Did you try removing the akamai.net one? Akamai is a content hosting company that streaming places use a lot.

Hillsfar. Kinda like Pirates!, but medieval. I really like the lockpicking minigame.

I loved the lockpicking mini game, but I always felt the timers near the end of the game for both lockpicking and the searching around houses got WAY too fast. Don't think I ever finished Hillsfar for that reason. (never mind doing it 6 times for all my PoR characters to get that extra starting level in CotAB)

And the Humble Bundle weekly bundle is Might and Magic... It'd be like reliving my youth again.

Though I never really liked M&M, so that part would be torture for me. But Nostalgic!

I'm too much of a gold box geek that my first thought after "I need to get these" was "they listed the games in the wrong order for the second collection. Pools of Darkness came after Silver Blades.

Now where's the Dragonlance gold box game collection?

It seems like this would be a lot more work than the RE HD version, which had the Gamecube version to work from. Pretty sure RE2 was just released in basically it's original format with no remaster version on anything previously.

The thing that annoyed me about AT&T rate throttling, is that their throttling was so bad, it basically made it impossible to use the internet, so the "Unlimited" is kind of BS. You can say "well, the customer can still use it, we didn't turn them off." but when you're throttling down to .14Mbps (actual speed on my speedtest when I was throttled), it pretty much prevents any page from loading in a reasonable amount of time... it's not like we have low-data WAP versions of the sites like we used to.

Another day, another Del Toro project that will evaporate into the ether like 95% of his projects. (Speaking about all projects including movies, not just gaming.)

News Comments > Tabletop Simulator & Superfight DLC Released
4. Re: Tabletop Simulator & Superfight DLC Released Jun 7, 2015, 11:10 MacLeod
 
I just watched a 20 minute tutorial video for the Tabletop Simulator software, and I have to admit, it is tempting to buy to get a game running with some old friends that are no longer local.

I will say, this type of software is probably the one of the few cases I wish there was paid addons in the workshop. Going through them, there are a lot of games already built... Warhammer Quest, Warhammer 40k, Settlers of Catan, Arkham Horror to name a few... but I can't help but feeling that downloading them would be stealing from the company who made the game, since people are literally scanning their work and reproducing it to play without purchasing the game. If there were paid addons, the companies could actually sell their games for this and have official support. I can see, especially now that it's "officially" released a lot of game companies getting these addons pulled. Especially Games Workshop, who have always been sharks when it comes to attacking anything that even seemingly threatens their trademarks.

It seemed pretty obvious to me where they switched from standard gameplay animations to something specifically orchestrated for this video (or maybe an in-game cutscene, whatever). The dead giveaway is the guy backing up against the rock.

Though that did make me think that creating an animation if the walking backwards key is pressed and you come up against a solid object would be cool. hehe.

I'd back a Kojima / Del Toro survival horror on KS.


I wouldn't.

Sorry... but since the first Solid, with the exception of three, which I've heard was good, but I still couldn't get into, the Metal Gear games have been long-winded crap. Crap I've tried to love, but haven't been able to. Kojima has been coasting by on his name for a LONG time now.

As for Del Toro. I think he's probably the most over rated hack director in a long time. Other than the Hellboy films, which were okay as mindless fun movies, I don't think I've actually enjoyed any of his movies. Even his most critically acclaimed movies, The Devil's Backbone and Pan's Labyrinth left me with a "Meh" feeling when done. Not to mention the guy can't settle on a single project ever. If you ever look at his production slate, the guy has like 30 projects going at once, and 99% of them don't ever get off the ground. So I definitely wouldn't be giving him money to do something before it was completed.

Yeah. 64-bit KSP was not updated to 1.0. It never worked properly in Windows, particularly when modded. A fresh install of 1.0 will only have a 32-bit executable. The 64-bit Windows version of the engine they use (Unity) is notoriously shit and they can't do anything about it until Unity releases a version that isn't ass.

But the 32-bit version is absolutely fine unless you're installing tons of huge texture packs.

Ah. Good to know. Maybe I'll go back to it at some point. But the second tutorial level not working correctly still left a bad taste in my mouth.

purchased Kerbal the other day... went through the first tutorial okay. Got to the second tutorial (launch), and when I got to orbit, it told me to bring my map up to plot a path or some such. My map is completely blank except for starfield. Apparently this is a known bug. Then I read, while looking that up, that if I wanted to play the campaign, I'd have to run the 32-bit version, because it doesn't work in the 64-bit executable. Quit the game and never went back.

Anet does a good job keeping out cheaters, botters and gold sellers. You see someone selling gold in chat and report it, an Arenanet employee is there within seconds to ban their account. They've all but removed gold spam from the game.

LOLOLOLOL

Yea... Okay.

That's why I've gotten spammed for about 2 hours by the same gold seller. Or why people have been reporting the same cheaters in WvW for months without them getting banned. Come on man...

Man... It's weird. I played the crap out of The New Order, but yet, I'm having trouble with this one on the first section after you escape capture and you have to get past all the super soldiers connected to the power lines.
