it was the lack of support against all the hackers that was the straw that eventually broke the camel's back for me

Completely agree. BF3 was fun, but quickly lost that with all the hacking and blatant cheats. I'll care about buying BF4, as much as EA cared about hacks/cheats, which was not at all...
Doesn't this all the time for each game?

NDA in effect, but I can say that the reboot is fun.
Better than/Good as the previous C&C (e.g., Generals) games?

I liked Papers Please enough to return to it 3 separate times yesterday... That never happens.

It's always comical how the one bit of info that I don't verify is the one that I'm dinged on. I might need to write down the issuing cities on a real piece of paper next to me since I have no memory and checking the book is a time sink.

I did that too!
And the last time I actually had to write something down might have been the original Xcom games where I drew my base on paper before building

I created Quake levels on paper in class.....class went by fast that way long long ago! Even drew sight lines from hides and flag points.

I also create Excel spreadsheets for games like Fallout (old and new), Two Worlds, and Skyrim. I like to keep notes and lists of things I want to do or come back to. Story arcs, etc.
Share you work!! Let's see them! Here are some of mine from the old days:

http://zimage.com/~ant/antfarm/files/doom2/j2doom/j2doom.html
http://zimage.com/~ant/antfarm/files/games/quake/skins.html
http://zimage.com/~ant/antfarm/files/games/cc.html (U.S. map for C&C:RA).

I made Wolf3D stuff, original Lode Runner levels too, but don't have those anymore.

Just make System Shock 3 already for christ sake, what they are waiting for. Shodan is still alive and she called me a useless sack of meat and bone!

I'm playing through SS2 now. The only thing that makes it bearable to me is the low poly monsters. If it had updated graphics, I'd have a heart attack...the game has some awesome sound design.
They have mods for better graphics.

An official SS2 remake would be nice!

Cold shivers are running down my spine

And no, i don't want a "spiritual successor" when this means stupid and simplistic shooter crap as in Bioshock. I want the full, unaltered gameplay!
And we don't want SS3 to suck!! So, make it good or don't bother!

I hear good things about payday 2 but $30 seems too high. I'll see if someone wants to trade it on vgfive or 99gamers.
Really? I thought Payday 2 would be 50-60 bucks. :O

Finally! Now I can watch Sharknado wherever I want.


I just watched a compilation video of that movie and....OMG. That looks so bad, I need to see the whole thing. The special effects were seriously worse than movies 50 years old now. LOL!

I definitely need to see it all for a good laugh.
It's Syfy. What did you expect?

Excess of anything could lead to early death.

Therefore, this is a moot point. A waste of good webpage space but I guess silly stories have their place.

The soundtrack uses a lot of music cues from the movie "Aliens".
So the music is better than the game? Hehe.

Taskeen wrote on Aug 13, 2013, 20:57:
PayDay 2 is legit. If you're fan of movies like HEAT, this game is basically like living and playing a bank robber or heist movie. Very intense, good graphics, awesome realistic sounds, multiple difficulty levels, good RPG-like mechanic with a class based system, AND missions can be completed with stealth or going out with guns blazing, but it requires good communication and team work to accomplish. When you complete missions with stealth you feel incredibly badass.
Hence, why I enjoyed the original game. I wished I had free time to play!

Ditto even though I don't play games these days.

I definitely don't play as much as I used to, but still try to get in a bit of time everyday.
Yeah. I just do quick random Flash games. I do play a lot of text and turned based Uno (current game is over 20.5 hours already) and Rumble/Junkyard in IRC. Haha.

Skip this version of Windows all together and continue using Windows 7 Ultimate until the year 2020 when official support finally ends. Done.
This.

Much better plan.

Or keep using XP SP3 until April 2014 and then go to W7 until 2020. OR get another OS like Linux or Mac OS X.
