Well, I do play Rbot's Uno, Junkyard, and Rumble in IRC with my online friends a few times a week. Those can take hours, days, and even weeks to finish! Haha. I still have yet to finish my old Windows games like Crysis 1, C&C3:Kane's Wrath (did resume it last month from a saved game from 2008!), World in Conflict, Oblivion (still in that sewer level with rats haha), etc. I loved NS games! I wished it was ALIENS theme though.
What irc channel? I need to play and finish some of my old games too
It's a private server.

Let me add one more, no "ping" counter. So how are those of us who are from more remote parts of the World, like Europe or Australia or Asia going to compete is anyone's fucking guess. Or in other words, this game is a LPB's wet dream.

* JDreyer strokes his fiber optic cable feeding him 100 mbps of pure internet goodness *

I'll see you in-game, InBlack. I'll see you in game. Devilish
I hate you. Where is this?

Seriously, what person plays new games on a computer that still has xp on it, or maybe I should say what computer with xp on it can still play any of the new games? Don't see that as an issue for any developer.

It's not a new game for starters and was released when XP was still supported. Hopefully this doesn't screw over too many people.
Yep, also it ran on video card with 512 MB of VRAM. That happened before the Windows XP drop. That's OK. I don't game these days due to BUSY life.

Like at all? :O

Natural Selection 2 isn't that great anyway, unfortunately. I think Natural Selection 2 is what they wanted Natural Selection always to be, so it's not Natural Selection. And that's why it's not that popular.
I spent several thousand of hours on Natural Selection but I don't think I've spent more than 5 playing the sequel. The hit detection is just so unfathomably bad. It was bad in NS1 and I thought that no game ever could have worse hit detection but lol was I wrong.

I miss the days of logging into my favorite QW/TWCTF/Q2/Q2LMCTF/Q3A/UT Etc. server so I could duke it out with/against people that I would see all the time. The community used to be so awesome. We'd even swap over to teams that were getting wiped out to even the odds.

Remember when people used to actually switch teams to even things up mid battle?

That shit is all gone. Now its just click a button and play with a bunch of random people.
Yep. Dude, we're old now. Another reason I don't game these days beside being too busy and stuff.

Oh and get off our old lawns, you whippersnappers!

Star Wars stuff has been horrid shite since after the oldest 2 movies, with the obvious exception of Bioware's 2 single player RPGs.

Wow, so there hasn't been any good Star Wars anything since 1981?

The Dark Forces series was pretty good all around: DF, Jedi Knight: DF2, and Jedi Outcast.

Also, the X-Wing series was pretty good: X-Wing, Tie Fighter, X-Wing Alliance.
Ditto.

After giving it a good try, it is a pile of utter shite!

It's pretty and it sounds fantastic, but the more I played the more the gameplay felt like shit. I'm sad, as this could have been fantastic in the right hands (and not dice/EA)...

So, it's not good as the Galactic Conquest mod for BF1942, original Battlefront 1-2, etc.?

The game runs unbelievably well on my laptop. I'm a little concerned they might be using black magic. I'm on a Asus G75V laptop with a Geforce 660M graphics chip and the game runs real well on low. Even looks great at 1920x1080.

I expected it to be a slide show.
Using maximum options too?

Sounds like the maps are even smaller than Battlefield, so maybe around the same? The FB3 engine isn't a total hog. Ant, what's your rig currently?
Old enough not to be able to play today's newer games for years since I don't game these days. Haha.
