Will Blue be watching this Ghostbusters? I'll wait for the home release. I have better things to do and see. I'd rather play the Ghostbusters video games.

I like when people immediately think PG = family movie or something...

Look it up, the original Poltergeist is rated PG, that's a pretty good movie to take the kiddos to see, right?

I saw Poltergeist as a kid, fucking loved it. I drew so many pictures of the tree coming through the window for the kid and the giant skull coming out of the closet. So many iconic scenes in that movie.

All that being said, Poltergest, Gremlins, and Indy Jones 2 were all rated PG, but were too scary/violent for most kids under 10. Thus was born the PG-13 rating, a scourge of movie creativity ever since.
My church friends and I also saw them back then at home on VHS tapes and cable. Poltergeist gave me nightmares, but loved it when I was older.

Most new games are coming out with Linux versions.

Are they? Is there an article that measures this? I know more have come out, but I don't see it as most or most that I play.

Actually, you're right, I don't have stats. It's probably not over 50% so most isn't the best word to use. I was just operating anecdotally, and it seems that a lot of games come out for all 3 platforms.
Need more Linux (and Mac OS X).

I am slow with the new (and old) releases. I do kind of want to see Deadpool though, but everyone saw it already.

I am thinking about opening up a 80s arcade here in Texas. Man, I miss the arcades and fighting games. How everyone got into the close matches; everyone knew each other. Flawless Victory, FATALITY! Bring it!
Uh, fighting games started in the 90s IIRC.

The minimum requirements for Cities:Skylines is definitely listed as 64-bit windows.
Yeah, I found that out from its company's web site. Instead, I resumed my buggy Crysis 1 saved games. Still on Relics! Ha.

7. I tried to play it! Feb 20, 2016, 23:04 Ant
 
"Steam - Error -- Failed to start game (unknown error)."

So I manually went to and tried to run my downloaded game on my HDD, but got "I:\winstuff\steam\SteamApps\common\Cities_Skylines\Cities.exe is not a valid Win32 application."

I was going to try it on my old 64-bit Debian box. Nope! Not enough RAM and too slow (even with every graphic details to lowest settings) on it. I got bored with it already after making roads. But then I was never into SimCity type of games.

Boo. I can't play in both of my old 32-bit Windows XP Pro SP3 (requires 64-bit Windows) and my 64-bit Debian boxes (2 GB of RAM only). Need more RAM and 64-bit Windows according to https://support.paradoxplaza.com/hc/en-us/categories/200224688-Cities-Skylines ...

I'm guessing after that they'll want a urine sample and a notarized statement that Sega are legally empowered to administer corporal punishment if you attempt to engage the official Sonic twitter account in erotic roleplay.

You say that like it's a bad thing.

i'm doing my part!

Would you like to know more?
Yes please. Starship Troopers FTW!

14. Golden Axe Feb 17, 2016, 00:44 Ant
 
Cutter wrote on Feb 17, 2016, 00:06:
Never heard of the other games but man, I remember playing Golden Axe in the arcades as a kid!
Ditto except I played Golden Axe on my IBM PS/2 model 30 286 10 Mhz PC in IBM (not MS) DOS v4.0. All DOS v4.0 sucked so badly due to its crappy conventional RAM to make some of the game's movements missing like throwing bad guys! I saw those moves on my friend's DOS v3.3! Oh and my first SB ISA card just for that game (only Adlib IIRC?) and future games (e.g., Wolf3D). Haha! Great IBM port too. I never finished its Duel. So hard!

But I read it doesn't do online multiplayer while MAMEhub can do that with the arcade ROMs.

Wow, XCOM is that popular? I couldn't get into the original DOS versions. I wonder if I will like the newer games. Are there playable demos of any of the newer XCOM games?

Actually yes, yes there is a demo off Steam for the X-com I enjoy, http://store.steampowered.com/app/200510/

I hated the original games myself, I wanted to like them, but they were pretty difficult. The new Xcom: Enemy Unknown is alot more forgiving and easier to access, I feel. I enjoyed it enough to play through the game complete, twice.
Thanks!
