As a splinter cell fan I get more depressed with each release. The first 3 were the pinnacle of being an operative. The objective was not to be seen, and you get heavily penalized if caught. That's not what I miss the most though. I miss the classic Sam Fisher character. His banter with Grimsdottir and Lambert made for some really good dialogue and his humorous yet cheesy dialogue. Now he's just another generic pissed off rogue agent. Why is he killing all the bad guys? I remember in the first three Sam was against killing, unless it was a last resort. Now it's the complete opposite.

Memorable settings and enemies from the first 3 replaced by generic middle eastern settings.

Also whatever happened to continuity. I remember Sam Fisher being in his twilight years in the first 3 game, with grey hair and slow movement. Sam Fisher was slow, to match his old age. He wasn't some Jason Bourne bullshit knockoff that he is now. Sam Fisher used to be one of my favorite game characters. Can't say the same now.

And no Michael Ironside...need I go on?

Yep, my thoughts exactly. Can't beat the original ones.

Similar things can be said about Resident Evil for me too. The first three were awesome, but after that they went in a direction I don't agree with at all.

The bots in the GO beta are pretty decent. Sure real people are best as long as they are not being tards, but bots is what got me by for years before I had a decent internet connection and it was ok.

I'd love to play Arma 2 MP, but every time I try each server is running a different and large list of mods/addons that I don't have. I'd like to be able to play pure vanilla Arma 2 (plus the official expansions) MP.

Personally I find the game design, every bit of it, of old games to be far superior to modern stuff. This is why I still play the old games so much and much more than new stuff.

Game design did move on, to something much worse. Gotta hold the hand of the kiddies I guess.

Did anyone ever complain about monster closets in Doom 1 and 2? They were full of those things.

This reminds me that I never got around to finishing the Doom 3 expansion. Kind of weird because I liked it, especially since they brought back the double barrel shotgun. I played through Doom 3 almost twice.

Even though it never really felt like a true doom game I still liked it quite a bit for what it was. If I think I'm playing a game NOT called Doom then it's all good.

The old doom level remakes for Doom 3 never felt quite right to me.

Blizzard already has your money, Mr. Lemming. What did you learn today?


I learned that some people, like yourself, can't take a joke. I have never seen error 37 actually. Only error 12 but turns out that can be fixed by changing the battle net password.

I also learned that some people, like yourself, are so sad and pathetic that they have to belittle other's game choices so they feel better about their pathetic little life.

It seems the servers are up yet many of us are STILL getting the error 12 issue. I have the collectors edition so actual DVD, I am in the USA and am trying to use the Americas option in the game. Should work eh? For some, it works to use servers from the countries they are NOT in. heh.

This is fooked. I guess I'll I get to play tomorrow, or next week, if I'm lucky.

This is the main reason I was so skeptical about D3 over the past few years. I only give a crap about single player and yet I have to rely on their dumbass servers. But I liked the beta so much I bought the game anyway. sob :/

Not that this is surprising due to his health problems over the years, but this to me is just very sad. Carroll Shelby is one of my fav people of all time. He's a legend, an idol, and his cars he made were some of the coolest. What IS surprising is how he made it this long due to his health issues he had all his life.

I was really wanting to get one of the newer GT500s (since I can't afford an original) and have him autograph the dash before he died. Looks like that won't happen now. Dang it. Still wont stop me from getting the car anyway. But having him sign it would make it worth much more later. Plus I would have loved to met and talked with him.

Shelby Cobra forever!

Free DLC....Bohemia FTW!

Even when these guys charge for DLC, it's a lot more content than you get with most others.

Bring on Arma 3!

"Fixes an issue where an “Unable to purchase” alert could be displayed after successful purchase"


Good to see this get fixed. This has been annoying me for quite some time now. Every time I go to the app store to get updates or download something I'd get interrupted about a certain 4 apps that could not be purchased, yet they were and downloaded just fine.

I'm glad you can't rotate the camera around. Doing so would not feel like Diablo. A fixed camera is not a bad thing at all.

I would have much preferred them going with a 4.3" screen and a much improved battery. The battery in my S2 sucked balls. Barely made it through a day unless I shut off all the background services, but then whats the point of having a smart phone if you have to disable everything on it to get some battery life out of it.

I miss the good old days of charge the phone ones a week.


My AT&T S2 has great battery life. Usually I use 1/4 or less battery in a full day. Of course I don't sit and have my face glued to it constantly either. I also keep on top of disabling features I'm not currently using (wifi, blutooth, gps, etc) and also using Samsung's widget to "exit" apps when I'm done with them. My usage habits are pretty much the same as when I had the HTC Evo (I probably use the S2 more though) and the Evo would go dead in less than a day for sure. That thing's battery life was horrible.

Just to be safe though, I always plug my S2 in the Samsung cradle every night so I start with a new battery every day.

Yeah one of the spots I got stuck on had to do with white gel. I ended up painting the whole damn place with white until I had a duh moment and figured out what to do. lol! The solution was pretty simple but it had me for a bit.

Nice. I never played Portal 2 despite buying it at full price. Strange isnt it? Seems to be a good time to start playing.

Whoa, it's one of the few games I have finished. I got stuck on one level and had to cheat but besides that I thought it was great.

Looking forward to the level editor and community maps. Hopefully there won't be any shaped like dongs but I doubt it

Which part did you get stuck on? I'm curious if it's the same part that had me for a while. Actually, there was a few parts that had me going WTF!?
