How is this game compared to original SWB games and Galactic Conquest mod for BF1942? I still have my SWB games!

Has Overwatch changed and improved much since its last free weekend back in 11/19/2016 according to my http://aqfl.net/node/11973 blog?

Lots of her adjustments to achieve better balance, new maps, a couple new heros, and the Arcade with half a dozen game modes for quick matches.
Thanks.

Isn't Skyrim a game pretty much everyone has played?
I haven't played it.

Well, now's your chance.
Let me finish my old games like World in Conflict, Oblivion, etc. I already have the original Skyrim, but haven't downloaded and played it. SE won't run on my ancient gaming box.

I have the original one instead of this SE. I haven't touched it yet. Is SE a free upgrade for original owners?

Thank you in advance.

If you had the original and all three DLCs, Steam should have given you a copy of the Special Edition for free. If you missed a DLC, you wouldn't have gotten it.

One big thing I forgot to mention is that the SE is a 64bit engine, so you no longer run up to that bullshit 2GB limit for mods in memory. I think I'm nearing 3.5GB on texture mods and it runs flawlessly.
I don't have any DLCs. Just original from Steam. Never downloaded and played too.

First Brink, now Shadow Warrior.

I need to stop buying games if they're just gonna keep giving them away for free after a few years. I'd save a bundle.

Crap. I missed Brink. What's up with these free recent games?

Brink and Shadow Warrior aren't really recent. SW came out 4 years ago and Brink came out 6 years ago.

His last truly great movie was Saving Private Ryan in my opinion. That was in 98! All his others are generally "meh" for me.

Lincoln, Bridge of Spies, and Minority Report were all excellent films. Looking at his imdb credits, he's directed some clunkers post-Saving Private Ryan, but then his pre-Saving Private Ryan track record is mixed as well. If anything all the stages of his career seems to be a consistent mix of a few great films, mostly crowd pleasing good films, and a few terrible misses.

Don't forget "Catch me if you Can". I think that was probably one of his most underrated films ever. (One of the best DiCaprio performances I've seen as well).
Ditto. I remember seeing it before LOTR's second movie (The Two Towers) in Arclight Cinema dome theater and thinking it looked stupid/dumb. Boy, was I wrong after I saw it on local TV.

Has Blue ever missed a single day of updates? I've been reading this site daily for at least 15 years, and I honestly can't remember a single day that he didn't update at least a small update. I recall a few technical issues, but never a whole day without an update.

Wonder what he does when he's sick.
Yes, he had when his mom died. Frans had to sub for him for a few days(?).
