I have replayed the BIA series through off & on over the last 18 months, I'm just about through Hells Highway & have loved it.
I got a real shock going from Earned in Blood to HH as I had forgotten just how much the graphics improved, HH is still a beautiful game.
It does get a bit repetitive but you have to appreciate their ambition & like any game it's those moments of alchemy where it all comes together.
The squad control is remarkably effective, the physics are nice & probably the best sound effects I've ever heard of any ww2 game.
I remember in the lead up to the 2005 release of Road to Hill 30 along with a friend being so stoked for the implementation of gun sway & still for me that's the cats shit all by itself. Ironically on release there was a ton of people bitching about it & I think they caved & reduced it on EIB, when I replayed it recently it seemed like it was maybe reinstated.
I recently got stuck on getting my squad through a German defensive position to the point where I just had to walk away, just got pounded every time. After a break of a couple of weeks it suddenly dawned on me, I had to hang back & send two squads forward & watch from a distance. I took them from cover to cover to eventually clean out the various enemy strong points, it was cool seeing it playing out far up ahead before re-joining them. Swear it felt like I was dropped into the Band of Brothers dvd for a time.
Fair criticism when this first appeared was combat "wack a Mole" but in saying that for the most part & for it's age the AI can be spooky realistic, defence of flanking manoeuvres in particular. One of my pet peeves in the past is Pitchford casting himself as Hartstock & hamming it up with over acted breathless yelling. Randy if you read this it wasn't as annoying this time through & you were probably instrumental in getting the series made in the first place so I'm a gonna cut you some slack.
This series still holds up as a challenging, informative, honest single player campaign, my memories of the co-op are fond, it is amazingly immersive.

Ps
I have no idea why in these docos the game footage shows the hud & suppression indicators on all the while the narration touts it's realism, turn all that shit off.

Pennsylvania school district arms students with rocks in case of a shooter.

Add a couple ballistic shields to each classroom, and they might have a chance.

What chance do they have if the shooter brings Paper?

Well I just thought they've arrested Blue & that's that.
Trump will inform the media the motivating cause of every mass shooting ever is now defunct & the person responsible for said site on his way to Siberia as he tweets.
I was reflecting on what a good run it was but worried about Blues lack of conditioning & skinny arms.
Did he enjoy Vodka?
Then Bam!
Back up.

Had no idea this was being built in my backyard.
All New Zealand shots are of my city including the hills & harbour where I have done a lot of RC slope gliding & powered wing flying.

This is not exclusive to tech business by any means, it's Kyle he's gonna stick his head up from the trenches.
What really interests me more are the ramifications this has on his business going forward, & don't for a minute think Nvidia aren't taking notes. Will this all go dark when Nvidia lose the desire to work with him in the future or do we see more green giant Kyle conniptions.

I'm on the 4th season having not re-watched it since the original screenings.
I had made Breaking Bad the number 1 TV epic of all time but 4 seasons in & having forgotten pretty much everything I now pronounce The Sopranos tied equal at the top spot.
Yes Tony's character & performance are great, yes the writing is brilliant, but Junior is a masterclass all by himself.

We had a young man here killed when hit by a golf ball to the temple, standing to one side of his friend teeing off.
I'm appalled his killer most likely trained on golf simulators his whole life.
