Speaking of amazon, had sucky experience with prime day purchase. amazon tried to double charge for the same order, so it set off alert and credit card company flagged. Finally got it all sorted but now have to reorder all over again, bleh. So hopefully will get it ordered, when I'm sober? Damn, another reason to get fired as a news uploader, drinking on the job!

Thanks Verno, sounds good. Still checking around and heard of private firewall brand, might read a bit more about it.

Terrible news in France... Cry

Unrelated question, does anyone recommend a replacement for zonealarm firewall? checkpoint is far to untrustworthy but a stripped down version of just the firewall is a decent product. You just can't get the stripped down version now days. It's a choice of bloat if you buy or popups with free.

After what these guys did in Human Revolution and Thief, I'll be waiting to hear from you guys. As a fan of the originals, can't help but hope for the best but these developers are clearly console focused and only seem to give lip service to PC gamers.

That was the problem Sheltered had, no quests. You just explored, trade or fight (often a choice) and build/manage.

Man, it's one hot mother today. 32C atm where I am, basically 40 with the humidex. Now I know how Brian's gay cousin Jasper feels.
It's been 100f or so for the last week here in Austin, not to mention at least +5 heat index. So 105, not many people sitting outside eating for lunch now days. Now that college is out, most everyone just wants to stay floating down one of the local rivers. Sweatdrop

Speaking of Lyme, there was a shout out in the 1957 timeline, on 12 monkeys.

Hope you guys have better luck, than I did. Tried both these games and could never get into them. I recall being stealthed with a silenced pistol. I was in the bushes and the mob was less then 5 feet away on a patrol. Stopped next to me, headshot him and nothing but pissed him off. Probably had to shoot him 5 more times and alarms everywhere. No fun.

I never picked up SoM, figured I'd get it at low price one day. I might be wrong but it didn't seem to have any story and was mostly a beat'um up. Sort of like how so many games add challenge levels now Dishonored, Witcher and such. I really hate constantly respawning mobs, it seems the lowest form of development.

Actually, the story is pretty cool so far. Yeah, it's standard "revenge" fare, but the addition of Celebrimbor makes it pretty cool. The cutscenes haven't bored me yet, the way the Crew's cutscenes do. (You want to talk about a god-awful story, look no further than the Crew.)
Cool, I'll give it a try, thanks...Wait what's Crew, the car mmog, The Crew?

Grabbed a hard drive and cables, didn't see anything impressive in games. Does Black Friday, give more/different deals?

Gtk thanks nin, but yeah got to agree with the sentiment of not changing mid game, Unity is fine. I just think Epic has really been dropping the ball for the last 2 to 3 years in this department.

Death to big publishing! Lighter

I'm not sure, but think they are using the Unity Engine. It's become so popular, due to it's great balance of price and performance, with most Kickstarters. I really wish Unreal Engine had got out in front of with this need from independent developers. Epic would have stood to gain from helping crush the big publishers, who constantly mislead and mismanage, these game IPs.

Afaik, the EE was on their own dime and once they realized new engine possibilities, decided to do Kickstarter.

The level design was boring and re·pet·i·tive. The best level designs were in Redneck.

what?

you had a carnival, a train, a boat, a friday the 13th inspired campgrounds, a level in a city getting bombed and so much more. The first episode had some bland stuff, but it only got better from there.
Definitely fun, original and very creative level designs. Iirc, that was the first time a train or a boat was used as a level in a FPS. I can only hope the original creators from Q are part of the team. Fingerscrossed

Edit: No more drinking and posting for me! I see at least Nick Newhard is there, yay!

Great idea, Human Head could do a Kickstarter! Lighter

It's too damn bad, we can't get Heretic 2 on a digital site like GOG or Steam. At least I haven't been able to find it, yet.

Derp, I should have read my own post and learned, how to cipher like Jethro Bondine. I would have noticed, Blood was only about 2 months away from release, when Monolith bought the rights.

Uggh, please don't screw this up, when they tried to make their own Blood (original was made by 3D Realms, iirc), Blood 2 was terrible.

Monolith was developer on both Blood games, though George and Scott from 3D Realms are credited as producers on the original.
Did you see this part, guess my memory is a bit off but 3D Realms always tried to help new developers get started. The 3 most successful were Blood, Shadow Warrior and Max Payne. In regards to Blood, it was near completion (iirc) with a year or less until release.
Development began at Q Studios, an independent developer funded by 3D Realms, in parallel with a number of other well-known titles. Following the success of Duke Nukem 3D, development progress was made public starting in June 1996 with weekly updates on their website. It was originally scheduled for release in early 1997. Q Studios was acquired by Monolith in November 1996. On January 22, 1997, a press release announced that all rights had been sold to Monolith[5] so that 3D Realms could focus efforts on Shadow Warrior, another Build engine game slated for release the same year.
At least imo, why there was so much discrepancy in quality between Blood and Blood 2.
