Ok where is that popcorn clip from Real Genius?

Seek and ye shall find!

Jerry's House of Popcorn

Great movie, Hard to believe Val Kilmer let himself go out of shape so badly. Was hoping to see him in the new Top Gun as the Iceman again. but more then likely he will be renamed Call sign the Fat-man.

Burn baby burn.


And the Black Hole keeps getting larger and large.

No hope for this game, none at all. Once a rumor starts it all people can talk about. Chris is running around trying to put his fingers in the leaky dam, and he just doesn't have enough of them to plug all of the holes.

Guess I should finally check this out. Never played it, but remember walking past that box art in the store...


Well if you do then make sure you grab all of the Texture Packs for this. You defiantly don't want to play it without those.

Scroll down the page on this one to and hover your mouse over the screenshots to see the visual difference.

There are links on this page to go and grab the new textures.

This game was doomed on its inception. Deep Silver screwed the pooch with Dead Island franchise.

Not just that, the whole concept of this game was bad to begin with. They way they went about each mission and how Coop worked just sucked.

I gave up on this game a long time ago after trying to play it with a few friends. We just could get into it. left us feeling Meh!

I've been hoping this game would come out for the pc for a long time. Watched my son play it on the XBox. loved how it looked and played. hopefully they are over hauling the graphics on this gem.

Yeah...that Starcraft 2 really bombed and no one plays it anymore. RIP.

LOL, yea I had to laugh at his comments too. Apparently he lives under a rock.

The game is actually quiet good. I've been enjoying it a lot.

Have none of you guys ever played the Original Act of War? if so, very much like that. and Yes, this is a very similar game to Generals. in fact they made these games to be very similar to the old Generals.

And yes, the AI on the harder setting can be a very tricky bitch. he will attack you on one front and if he cant get in that way, he will find another way around your front to attack you. very good AI.

I've changed my mind on this game after completing the into and the first mission.

I absolutely f'ing hate the inability to map my keys as I see fit.

I have a Naga and a Nostromo, and I cannot bind the common keys I want to the buttons how I like them. I am not doing anything out of the ordinary either, this is awful.
Also- in the menu, it's built 100% for a gamepad, there is ZERO mouse support in the menu.. none, zip.. it doesnt work.. you have to use your arrow keys like a peasant.

the FoV hasn't bothered me yet, and the locked frame rate is fine for me at a solid 60fps.. the game looks great.

I just wish I could remap the keys how I want them.. why is this even a problem???

Go download AutoHot Key. you can then remap your keys by a script that you run for the game. best thing ever!!

More stupid decisions on EA's part. Six months from now, they will relent and fix this. But the damage is done. Personally I have no interest in PVP, so they lost my money anyway.

Looks pretty sweet. I'll pick this up at some point. I just picked up the first one during the summer sale, so I'll play that one first.

Also, not sure that we've had that much of a dry spell. Grey Goo was a pretty classic RTS that came out just a few months ago.


Grey goo is a POS compared to this. Trust me no comparison at all.

In the end: Damn, I want that game and my new graphics card is DirectX (insert number her) compatible, so I'll upgrade.

I call it the Windows upgrade drama, because with each new Windows version, the drama repeats itself and the drama queens are almost always the same.


Thats where you are wrong and for assuming. I'm on Win 7 and very happy to stay there. I refused to move over to Win 8 and 8.1 and will be refusing to move over to that shit spy infested Win 10.

Is there any sort of project schedule or deliverable plan? They are quick to tell you all the awesome 1007 you will get but come up short on any sort of plan that describes how they will deliver.

Damn, $50 to get a copy of the previous one with it?

Guess I'll pass...looks like they'll do fine w/o me anyway.


25 a game is too much?? Considering it's still 40 for the original at full price, sounds like a good deal to me if you don't have the first already.

As far as schedule goes, who knows, it's KS. But Larian will deliver as they've shown.

I would have gone $30 or $35. I guess I feel like if they're funding their next game, the previous one should be gratis, as an incentive. Like what inexile did with the first 24 hours of bard's tale.

Theirs actually two 50 dollar pledges. One gives you two copies of the new game while the other gives you a copy of both old and new. I don't see how this is a problem and like nin said. there are other lower end tiers to pledge to.

This was a no brainier backing for me, I loved the first one. And these guys set out to make a great RPG and they deliver.

Cant wait to play this one. and I really liked how both players were off doing separate things and backstabbing each other. Pretty kewl!!
