It would improve Modern Warfare 2 if they charged for each grenade out of the Grenade Launcher.
It would cut noob-tubing down to a minimum

Are they any closer to putting physics or AI calculations on the chip like NVidia? I reviewed the page but didn't see anything about that.

Thanks for your review.
Here I was thinking that you would be playing a taxi driver who picks up zombies, drives them to a zombie swarm. and then picks them up when they've finished eating brains.

A sim-type or tycoon-type game. Upgrade your taxi to handle more zombies, travel faster, with improved radar to detect potential swarming sites. I'll hold onto my dollars until that game comes out.

Bought Arma2(on sale for $25 on Steam)and Downloaded it overnight.
I've seen some game-play viodeos and looking forward to playing it.
Not really waiting on Modern Warfare2.

There was the Left Behind RTS game - It was a big NON-seller (it doeth sucketh), so I sometimes find a row or two of them in BestBuy or off-beat retailers. The company is still making other puzzle and children's games and a Left Behind sequel.

The "new" is just a corporate news release.

The new one is called Storm of War: BoB. I had hoped they hadn't delayed it too much with the Birds of Prey work
IL2 - best flight sim ever -

Lots of model work has been done and the atmospheric engine will push your PC. Less models but more detail in each

Aren't you the only person playing it online?

Haven't played it in a month or so - there were usually 3 or 4 maps out of 10 that had enough players. There was also a mode called Armoured Front - a Mech battle - that had one or two full 16-player maps at peak times

I don't know if I'll pick up the DLC, but I was impressed by the earlier Multi-player Cockroach map
Great design(sniper mainly) and the best and most tense CTF I've ever played.
Single-player - blah, except for the schoolhouse - only the MP made it worth the money I spent on it.
Big Fan of FEAR 1

Here are the details on a new Team Fortress 2 patch that's now automatically available through Steam to update Valve's co-op zombie shooter:



That should be Left 4 Dead Patched as per the fixes

Knob goblins?

That's an error - it's actually "knob-gobbling goblins"
Mature-rated game I think

Is MP included??

I've been enjoying Quake Wars(derived from RtCW: Enemy Territory)and wondered if we could sample that gaming goodness except in RtCW form.

Another Russian flight sim - good people doing good stuff
I'll take a look

And Oleg Maddox - where's Storm of War: Battle of Britain. Hints suggest 70 years after the Battle of Britain - September 2010

I never play historical strategy games. But as soon as I copied an opening build order, I got into this great game

Apple warns about unsupported players' iTunes integration.

Translation: We're going to be dicks. And we're going to "update" our software to prove exactly that.

I've recently been spammed at work by bots using my own e-mail address against me - 15 e-mails yesterday were caught in my quarantine

One got really rough with the following subject line:
Answer this or we'll sue

Where are the botnet killers?

I'm enjoying the multi-player - so I'm looking forward to it
An enjoyable mixture of grenades, melee,good maps, and an OK set of weapons

"pop-up target dummies" kinda says "Wow!!!!!!" or not. But I'm looking foward to it

Activision said that it wouldn't pay the rest and if Valve went to court Activision would countersue
That's a real "fuck you"

Valve has apparently called Activision's bluff and the parties are now once again at odds

Nice counter-fuck-you
