Maybe Square's working on a "reboot". I can see it now:

Boots is replaced with an edgy, emo character. Realizing their mistake from the Thief reboot, they add the jump ability. The old fashioned turn based jrpg combat is replaced with real-time fps cover based combat. The aristocrats!

Somehow I doubt real scientists would contribute to a game where Earth collides with Mars. Is Bruce Willis involved in the story-line in any way?

Just give me a goddamn jump button, and I'll give it a chance...


Perhaps one day consoles will be advanced enough to allow for this "jump" feature.

Also, anyone else seen/played Beyond: Two Souls? The entire game is a quicktime event.

I played quite a bit of Avadon on my iPad. Fun game with a lot of story and good old fashioned turn based combat. From what I understand, Avadon is a lot more stripped down than his previous games, complexity-wise.

Good work, government. Really, just a job WELL FUCKING DONE. Vote yourselves another raise, you clearly deserve it.

Please everybody, vote all these fucking incumbents out of office at the next election(s).

I wish it was so easy, but remember, the only idiot you have the power to vote out is YOUR idiot You have no control over all of the other idiots in the House, and their districts are usually so gerrymandered that they have no fear of losing. I saw a statistic on The Daily Show the other day that mentioned that there is a 91% incumbency rate in the House. An MSNBC article mentions that Congressional approval is down to 5%...

Shrug. Just play The Dark Mod.
You no longer need doom3 to play it, its standalone and free. Open source. Moddable, customizable, great map editor with too many features to list (darkradiant is freakin amazing) and all with classic Thief gameplay, but refined and improved by Thief purists. None of which T4 includes. TDM exceeds the originals and not just for graphics.

I'm not bummed about T4. It can go jump in a lake. Oh wait, no it can't... Only prescripted jumping is allowed (facepalm).

http://www.thedarkmod.com

Well, technically, Garret would first kneel and look down at the edge of the lake, and only jump in if you tried again :/

This game was fun. I liked the grittier feel of it, as opposed to WoW. My problem was that I didn't know anyone else who played it, and the Public Quest nature of it didn't really lead to very much partying and getting to know other players.

I mock the guy, but I wish he'd create a FPS again. At least it wouldn't be a Call of Duty clone.

How will he explain Daikatana to the class? Perhaps this is more like a "scared straight" type course?

You definitley don't rush though your library, do you?

Well, to my credit, I did only just buy it last month. I've been enjoying older games I never got to play more than modern games, lately (except for Wizardry 7, which felt like I was playing a spreadsheet simulator).

Why do people play these games? I never hear anything good about them. Just about how awful the community is and how everyone's games are ruined by griefers. How often do you get to play a match that you think was enjoyable?

If you play with a team of just friends, it's very enjoyable. Pug games are mostly awful.

They won't perform live over here as far as I know.

They'll be touring next year as well. I'm missing out on a Vegas show this fall, so I hope they make a lap around next year...


Was kind of disappointed in the new album at first, but some songs are growing on me.


I think it's the best thing he's done since The Fragile (not AS good, but the best since), but I'll openly admit I like the more electronic slant (I'm an electronic junkie in general).

Also found it funny as hell that part of the fan base freaked out about Everything, but then don't bat an eyelash at Satellite (one of my favs, but highly commercial sounding IMO).

I pretty much liked all of it except Disappointed and Running...

Yah, didn't like Disappointed (although it's almost as if he's mocking disappointed fans with the song itself) and Running. You ever listen to Skinny Puppy?

So does this mean I can play the couple of games I bought on an old account (that are installed on the same computer) on my main account? I don't have to log into the old account to play those games? I still wish I could just move them to the current account.
