12. Achievement whore I am! Jul 28, 2014, 06:02 Darth Guybrush
 
I've always been a fan of the art style. Pure talent. But it's the moral dilemmas and story-telling that sold these episodic games from TTG to me.

I only wish you could buy a cross-platform license! (eg Android and PC, 360 and XBox One) even if it cost a bit little more. Say 25%-50% off each platform you buy in one hit.

What can I say - I'm an Achievement whore!

Unless I am mistaken the Blue Tongue is a protected species and it would be illegal to get one.

News Comments > EA Still Investigating GameSpy Workarounds
24. Re: Ships Ahoy - Dawn of War II - Chaos Rising May 11, 2014, 05:07 Darth Guybrush
 
Yes it is unfortunate that with the loss of GameSpy and their servers we are a lesser people. Not worthy of continuing gaming because one or more publishers went with what at the time was the best non - and let me be blunt here - NOT Windows Live solution.

Now there are MANY others. Steam included. But who is to say Steam is eternal? I hope to hell it is as a primarily PC gamer. Origin pts pfft. U-Play points pffft (better rewards here however tangible they may seem).

Micro$oft? Nothing but comptempt. I delayed moving to Win8 now forced onto 8.1 - lots of great games not only do not work in multi-player but refuse to launch at all.

Hardware wise I am what 3 years old? Something is wrong here.

GameRanger allows multiplayer for many older games if you want it. I was never a MP fan (arse whipped or doing same to an even NEWBIER player is not fun).

But millions of gamers love these so...

Steam? Team with GameRanger?

What I am trying to say is :

Would you just turn off the life support for someone you love because you did not immediately have the cash on you to save their life? Or would you battle for an alternative?

2. Summer / Winter Solstice Dec 21, 2013, 14:51 Darth Guybrush
 
Actually your description is incorrect - not the start of summer/winter at all (we've been in "Summer" in Australia for weeks):

Summer Solstice
===============

The summer solstice occurs when the tilt of a planet's semi-axis, in either the northern or the southern hemisphere, is most inclined toward the star (sun) that it orbits. Earth's maximum axial tilt toward the sun is 23 26'. This happens twice each year, at which times the sun reaches its highest position in the sky as seen from the north or the south pole.

Winter Solstice
===============

Winter Solstice is an astronomical phenomenon which for the Northern Hemisphere occurs in December and which for the Southern Hemisphere occurs in June.

For the Northern Hemisphere, the moment of winter solstice is when the sun's elevation with respect to the North Pole is at its most negative value since the previous December. (The elevation with respect to the South Pole is at its greatest since the previous December). The hemisphere has its longest night and shortest day around the moment of solstice with the night within the Arctic being 24 hours long.

COD: Ghosts performance is abysmal (have 8Gb RAM but maybe video card is lacking at 1Gb). Start/stop/start/stop.

Doing the driver update dance. Went back to latest legacy AMD 64-bit drivers and still a crock - only BF4 performed much better - only to still have bizarre DirectX crash issues after 5 minutes or so. Sigh...

101. Re: So sad to hear... Nov 24, 2013, 21:20 Darth Guybrush
 
Thanks man! Appreciated!

Ditto here for all others that have and will suffer a loss. Sad fact of life.

Best thing you can do - after a proper length of grieving - is get a new pet and love them just as much!

I haven't replace my cat (Mel Gibson) mainly due to I now live alone and am always at work for extended lengths of time and would not be fair to keep a new cat locked up. Worse if I had a dog.
