Battlefleet Gothic?

Got my hopes up that DICE may be releasing medieval game
Yep, I got confused too. I was like I must had missed a big news! EA hasn't sued for that BF name?

News Comments > C&C Tiberian Dawn Redux
4. v1.4 is out. Dec 13, 2015, 23:33 Ant
 
I finally tried it! Whoops. I blame this game to keep me stay up late like old times. I decided to do quick install and play, but I ran into problems with my old C&C:G 0 Hr. not launching. Even uninstalling failed! That was a hassle. I guess the installation rotted since 2005 according to my very old saved generals games! :I Anyways, I finally got it uninstalled, reinstalled, upgraded, and played it a little bit. Then, I ran into bugs (already told the developer -- hey, am I getting paid? :P). The graphics were outdated, but much better than the old 2D engine. It was still fun! Even single player was there, enhanced. o/~ I'm a mechanical man! o/~

I hope someone can/will do the same for C&C3's engine (still have it installed too!).

Did anyone else try it?

Doom omg, first game I had to upgrade my PC for. 4MB of RAM does not cut it! that programming monster ate 8MB for it and the Windows to run.

Doom and Doom2 worked fine with 4 MB of memory if you knew how to pimp your config.sys and autoexec.bat files in DOS
Multi configurations FTW. I remember using HIMEM.SYS, EMM386.EXE, QEMM386.EXE, etc.

8. :) Birthday DOOM! Dec 10, 2015, 13:00 Ant
 
Medic wrote on Dec 10, 2015, 12:52:
Cool Story Bro Moment:

I met a pretty interesting girl at work and asked her out. She agreed, and over the course of dinner I disclosed that I was an avid gamer and really enjoyed games like Doom. She just nodded politely and we enjoyed the rest of the evening.

At the conclusion of our date as I walked her to her door, the following happened:

Her:"I have one favor to ask before you leave."
Me: "Ok, what's that?" *She begins to pull a Doom2 CD out of her purse*
Her: "Can you help me beat level 31? I just can't seem to figure it out."

We've been married 15 years.

Uh, why does she have it in her purse? Sounds fake. We need proofs.

A doctor's time is apparently more important than yours. They overload their schedules, so you end up waiting 30 minutes in the big waiting room, then another 30 minutes in the small waiting room.

a) if there's one person on the planet I don't want rushing through his work it's my doctor.

b) there is a growing shortage of both primary and specialty care physicians in the US

c) diagnosing cancer and explaining the prognosis to a patient isn't the same as telling a mother her child's tonsils need to come out, and one is going to take a hell of a lot longer than the other

No one is questioning that. We're just saying, manage your fucking time better.

I can understand 5 minutes late but nothing beyond that.

I schedule 15 minutes per patient (which is VERY generous, and I'm lucky I can get away with that), and I usually run on time, sometimes ahead of time; however, there is no way for me to predict how long any given patient is going to take. Some take 3 minutes, some take 30. Some patients have 3 different rashes and 4 skin cancers, others just have 1 spot and 1 easy problem. To expect your doctor to never run more than 5 minutes late is ridiculous; frankly I'm surprised the practice puts up with that behavior. You have *much* more control of being on time for your appointment than your provider.

I guess I always ask when the lunch break is and make it right after that, or, *gasp* plan ahead and be the first appointment of the day.

Never have issues.
Yep, I do this too.
