Yes I want another X-Wing/TIE Fighter too but maybe the first-person shooter will be an Outlaws sequel? Doubtful but I can dream...

They were good at hyping their games so maybe they can get into politics now.

One thing to keep in mind is that it seems all armor can be worn by every character assuming they met the level requirement. By that I mean, my wizard can wear chain, as can my barbarian, as can my monk. However, the appearance of the armor always changed to suit the class. So for example, my wizard playthrough has a relatively highly leveled up blacksmith, so I craft everything with her, then put it in my stash, and every character can pull the gear out and equip it, and the stats of the armor didn't seem to change. Makes me wonder why the status of crafters in the game aren't persistent across characters.

Weapons were different, and there were obviously some weapons that could only be worn by certain classes. However, things were still very flexible. My wizard could wield a 2h sword, or a hatchet/shield combo, or a wand and an orb. There were only a few things like hand wraps for monks, and shivs for demon hunters that were very class specific.

Seriously? Any character can wear just about any armor? I guess I'm just old fashioned but I prefer class armor restrictions...

Well, we had this 17 years ago so it stands to reason that 17 years from now maybe a gamer generation will be the talking heads and tv news will have a clue. It's optimistic I know. Maybe 34 years?

Man, you can just go through the entire game holding a vending machine on that difficulty, huh?

No --> , there is a way to not be kill-on-sight in the police station if you talk to the guy (he was a former Sarif security employee) at the reception desk the right way.

Also, failing a hack will still make the console beep and aggro nearby guards even with boxes blocking the view.

There was a badass google doodle on the google.co.uk page today for Freddie Mercury's b-day. I tried to find it in google's logo database but it's not there yet. There a video of it on this page and more info though:

Uggh, I was just commenting yesterday on here about the chore it is playing this game given how much UI's have advanced. Too much clicking but I'm still tempted to have it in my GoG bookcase

Games are quite complex these days and I can imagine the destructible assets in BF3 aren't easy to implement, let alone document. This isn't 1996 where some guy can hack together a level editor for the latest FPS. (I'm thinking of the old Outlaws Lawmaker editor.)

Such a awesome game, I remember playing this on my c64 20 something years ago, started my love affair of CRPGs.

Same here. I also loved Bard's Tale 1&2 on my C64.

I've still got the original Ultima IV C64 box with cloth map and the little ankh knick knack they included.

I'm pleasantly surprised by how well it runs.

Yeah Tumbler, I was going to upgrade my video card so I could have all the tesselation, etc. but it ran so smooth I decided to put that off a few more months or so.

It's sad that we are so used to unoptimized console ports that when a developer releases something actually optimized for PC it's a surprise

I've been meaning to fire up Just Cause 2 in casual difficulty to mess around. I love that game engine. I bought all the DLC back in December in a STEAM sale and haven't even played it.

I've resigned to not play retro games anymore until I get amnesia that makes me forget how much user interfaces have evolved in the last 20 years. Believe me, I would love to play the original populous but after five minutes my carpal tunnels are like wtf is this???

Saw that link a few weeks ago. The Adam West floor is still the best lol. Lots of other clever ones though.

Re: Tron legacy: I was never a big fan of Tron but Tron legacy was a good sci-fi popcorn movie. And there's really not enough decent sci-fi movies anyway...

Elevator Action is a classic arcade game but the screenshots of this 3d remake for the PS3 looks like something from a 1997 3dfx voodoo game...
