Goddamn I feel old.

Loved Unreal 1. Started getting into online gaming over modem with quakeworld, but it was unreal tournament (1999) that became my game of choice for many years. Quite a few lan parties with the old planetunreal (later beyondunreal) crew, the strangelove mod was always a crowd pleaser.

Good move for both gamers and paradox. The base game can provide hundred of hours of entertainment, if people enjoy it they're more likely to invest in the (hideous amounts of) DLC for it.
But thats not a bad thing. A lot of the DLC content is pretty awesome and they're always on a steam sale every few months or so.

Not sure how they're completely screwed when they're getting refunds?

Got an original pebble (from the first kickstarter) and a time steel. They're still working fine.
When they eventually break I'll look to see what else is out there, but currently if I want another waterproof, lightweight, always on display and a 7 day battery life on a smart watch there isn't one.

*"cloth maps or posters or what not. The excitement of waiting for the release. Driving to the mall and buying it. Driving home and opening it."

Hell yeah, the Ultima VI Britannia map was hung from my wall for many years, there was a DOOM level set that came with a sick skull poster that was up there too.

I remember where I used to live, there was a video game rental shop (before Blockbuster and what have you) and they actually rented PC games (with the box). I used to wade through those games like I do with record shopping.

Still one of my favorite games from that era was The Magic Candle, that came with an awesome map as well (and manual).

Here's the map - http://magiccandle.wumple.com/files/mc1/mc1map.jpg It was one of the few games I remember where you actually needed to camp and some could go hunt, some could keep watch over the camp while others rested, etc - and later in the game it was imperative to split up party members for certain quests/tasks.

I bought U6 when it came out. Spent about half a day trying to free up the 600k base ram to allow me to run the game, before finally realising that the "Amstrad 1512" I was trying to install it on only had 512k base and no amount of buggering about with config.sys or autoexec.bat would get it to run.
I was gutted.
Kept the game though. Still got the box on the shelf, cloth map and moonstone included

Liked WL2, liked the DC version even more, though I agree with the comments here that it wasn't perfect and there's definitely room for further iteration and improvement.
Will be backing this one.

Was sat in a hotel room using lync to connect into a company conf call.
Leader turned on some type of camera and due to some weird setting everyone else's webcams turned on.
Due to time differences it was 3am in the morning and I was sat there in just my boxers in a hotel room in hong kong.
All my laptops since have duct tape covering the camera.

I don't know. By the name you'd think it would be a newer take on BF1942. However in the brief glimpses of gameplay we see, it seems more like Call of Duty, or BF4 with a WW2 theme. I'm not seeing much in the way of gameplay elements that are really 1942-y.

Which makes sense if the devs are referencing MoH and CoD2. But then it puts the name at odds with the gameplay.

Ahhh, I remember it like it was yesterday. Midway, jumping out of an airplane, then realising that I didn't know which button opened the damn parachute.

Good times.

I liked the tropico series. I held off on getting 5 though as it pissed me off the amount of stuff they cut from 4 to 5, and then tried to nickle and dime on the DLC adding it back in.
Reading the various community forums I wasn't the only who was annoyed by this. I'll see if they try the same thing again, if they do then no more tropico for me.

"single player gory of quake"?

Bollocks to that. While the original campaign was fun, that paled into insignificance compared to the absolute mayhem that quakeworld/glquakewworld was. Still play it now, ultraviolence and basewalk/aerowalk alongside some of the ztndm maps are still a great example of how maps should flow for pvp.

I got a pebble time. I like it. Battery life is a week though, not 18 fucking hours like the apple watch.
But is it accurate and do you have to be tied to an iPhone? I had an accurate and precise watch in the 70's.

I also swap between my TAG and a Raymond Weil dependent on what I'm wearing.

Yes it's accurate, whats the bloody point otherwise? I've got it tied to a samsung s6.
Lets not joke around though, it's a screen extender for your phone. Range is good. I've had the watch tell me that someones phoning when I've left the phone on a different floor. Still limited by the Universal Law that if you run to answer your phone, it's going to divert to voicemail as soon as you pick the sodding thing up though....

Steam tells me I've spent 44 hours playing it so far so it's definitely growing on me . Being able to move and rotate structures to elsewhere in the sector makes things a lot easier for when you have a facepalm moment and underestimate how much space you'll need.

So I bought this as I (along with quite a few on this messageboard), have sunk a silly amount of time into Anno 2070.
Only had a few hours of it so far, while it's slicker it's not grabbing me as much as 2070 did with the different factions and personalities.
Hopefully it will improve. Don't get me wrong, it's not a bad game, it's just that Anno 2070 with the deep ocean expansion was the proverbial dogs nuts, whereas this one isn't quite there yet.
With these guys I'm sure there will be DLC for this, if they provide an extra faction like they did with Deep Ocean (Tech faction, geniuses and underwater building shit) then it will replace 2070 for me.
