Great to see you A_Thein.
I'll leave it at that as I don't know your situation and wouldn't want to get you into strife.

The ad placements were too much and detracted from the game for sure.

I find Vivaldi embodies a lot of what i liked about the old Firefox.

One of the things I like about Vivaldi is the ability to scroll through tabs with the mouse wheel. For some reason this feature is not common among other chrome based browsers.

I got used to the feature with FF and was happy to see it in Vivaldi.

On a fundamental level, Sifu’s combat very quickly brings to mind the Batman Arkham games and most specifically, Sleeping Dogs, but there are some key differences

Got high hopes for this one. Melee combat done right, like in the aforementioned titles, is a lot of fun.

...I'd kinda like to play it in VR. Definitely had the creepy factor going for it.

I admire people who can play those types games in VR. I don't think I would have the nerve to do it.

Just watching WaB avoid Jeff in HL Alex was tense enough.

I've seen churlish behavior on both sides of arguments in many threads from many posters.
Some seem to think their behavior is okay because most agree with their take on the underlying argument.

This and Blood Dragon were the last Far Cry games I've purchased.
I completed Blood Dragon but never FC3. The game is exhausting and I found most characters irritating. But mainly, FC3 was where Ubisoft's design template (that they used on AC games too) wore too thin for me.

Some recent posts about FCPrimal have got me curious that may be worth my time.

I'd love a firstperson option, especially with a texture quality upgrade.
I wonder what the choice next-generation upgrades will be?

I'm not happy but not surprised by the Epic exclusivity for pc. Remedy gets a guaranteed payday that way. They did the same for Control.

I can wait it out. Maybe even end up getting it for free like I did with Control.

The original is a beautifully atmospheric game. Had some genuine scary chills early on. That dissipates as you get used the enemies, but the atmosphere holds.

I liked the game mechanic for the most part. Although shining the light on flying debri and crows could get monotonous. My only advice is to play it with the all HuD elements off. Alan moves his head toward the nearest approaching attacker so you get used to it quickly. It helps retain the tension.

Unless they add more than higher textures and QoL improvements I can't see myself running to purchase this. The original holds up really well.

Not a bad list.
No mention of Turok2's Cerebral Bore though. That thing is brutal and hilarious.
Or Soldier of Fortune's Microwave Pulse Emitter: blows enemies up like balloons until they pop! Grin

I hope you can finally have more than one instance of Settings open?

Here's to hoping they don't harass us stalker style like they did with 7 -> 10.

Just remember to hit cancel or the X to close the update window and pray Microsoft respects your choice.
Remember that shady crap MS pulled to force holdouts onto 10.

I'm not saying the article is wrong, but a quick stroll around the site tells me they have a definite lean and are not even trying to be impartial.
Frankly, it's the kind of website I try to avoid.

Sleeping dogs is an excellent game.
The melee and environmental takedowns were a lot of fun. The shooting was decent with the addition of slomo when you slid out of cover or shot out an enemy car tyre. Just grabbing civilians and throwing them off bridges or through windows was hilarious.
disclaimer: I would never do this irl Angel

I had issues with the arrow keys being hard bound to the radio stations. While I successfully made the transition to WASD for first/third person many decades ago, driving never felt comfortable that way.
I still use the arrow keys to drive to this day whenever I can.

I played the demo a long time ago and it showed a lot of promise in terms of Fear style combat. I'm not sure the Ai is in the same league though. It's been a while so maybe the AI has improved to that level too.
I'll have to give it another go.
