Wasnt the release of a crappy remake lately, which made the original look 100 times better?

I dont know much about it but they remade the first game four or five years ago and I believe they just released part two. I might check out the second one, theyre supposed to have fixed a lot of the first games problems and it does look quite a bit better. Honestly though, Im in love with the original game graphics, illustrator dont really draw that way anymore and I rather like that older style.

I found out today that Sudden Strike 4 has friendly fire (to some degree).  I called in an airstrike and one of my tanks was in the path where the bomber dropped its payload and I sorta blew up my own tank.  :facepalm:

This was one of the reasons I sucked at Hardcore mode for CoD MP.  Every single time I'd get one of those airstrikes or area destruction-like rewards for a kill streak, I'd end up killing more of my own team than the enemy.

The first version of that remakes cover image was AWESOME. Then they changed it to something extremely generic.

 

I also love the original style. It's timeless as well, imo.

I bought Ghost Recon: Wildlands in a Eurogamer (!) sale and I've been playing that on and off.

 

This game is damn good! I have no idea why so many reviewers gave it middling scores. It looks fantastic, you can play through everything in co-op, the world is gigantic (and sooo well made) and the gameplay reasonably varied and fun.

 

Also, it's so ridiculously polished. Just how menus look and behave, how easy it is to transport yourself and your tram everywhere, how snazzy the weapon modifications look, how the physics affect almost everything (from explosions to fall damage to destructible environments). Everything seems to have an extra layer of thought put into them.

 

I was wandering through the wilderness, far away from anything, when I found a small path. It wasn't even on the map, but it went up to a vertical cliffside and disappeared into the rock. I got curious and followed the path, and it turned out someone had carved a very realistic looking passage through the cliff so the path could spindle its way up to the top of the cliff. I was so impressed! This must be one of the biggest games ever made and still.. someone took the time to create that little non-mapped path and made it look realistic and cool in the middle of nowhere. I loved that.

 

I think much of the criticism was leveled towards the writing. I've long said that Ubisoft missed a golden opportunity given the subject matter to make something on the level of Spec Ops: The Line which people would be talking about for years later. It did come out in a time of Narcos and after another Tom Clancy novel and film based on the novel with similar themes:

I've really caught the Lord of the Rings Online bug. The storytelling in this game has always been a notch above other MMO's for me, and after I got over my dislike of the mounted combat, I'm enjoying my time in Rohan and looking forward to moving onto Gondor soon. My captain just hit level 88 and is an inspiration for all these gloomy Rohim.

No. The newest Duck Tales is by far the best version...

 

The old ones are the terrible ones lol

Just what do you think you're doing?! You dare to come between me and my prey? Is it a habit of yours to scurry about, getting in the way and causing bother?

 

What are you still bothering me for? I'm a Knight. I'm not interested in your childish games. I need my rest.

 

Begone! Lest I draw my nail...

Yay for productivity.

Sadly finishing ME3 took the entire night. No WPF studying for me! Was trying to find the thread where we were talking about the leaked ending, recall someone commenting everything after you go up a elevator is bonkers but not sure.

 

edit : ok, found that http://forums.obsidian.net/topic/58642-mass-effect-3/page-12 - ah, man, so much snark.

 

I've really replayed the ME trilogy way too many times, heh

I tried playing Disciples II but it refuses to let me play. I can boot it up but once I start the actual campaign ,the game freezes. I'll try a refund, despite having bought the game in 20112.

Get it on GoG, works like a charm.

Hello, Labadal is busy at the moment. He'll be back in a few moments. There is nothing suspicous about his machine, not at all.

Pushing on with Thimbleweed Park. I do like the reference to the MI2 tunnels.  Jokes are kind of flat for me though.

As I expected/suspected, I did not get a refund. It was worth a shot.

Currently having big break from gaming. Watching with my gf Star Trek Enterprise every day for more than a month. Last three episoded to go. And I am trying to play Atelier Rorona in between, but going very slowly. The crazy hot weather might be gone now, so I'll probably end up playing more games again.

Wait, very hot weather means you are less likely to play video games?  For me it's the opposite, when it's super hot outside (like right now, though we should get cooler air on Thursday) I'm more likely to play video games, since I'd rather stay inside in my air conditioned home than do stuff outside.  When the weather is more pleasant I'm much more likely to be outside and not playing games.

If you don't have air conditioning for whatever reasons, though, it can make playing games too miserable to bother with. Alternatively, if your air conditioning isn't quite good enough to handle the hottest parts of summer...

Never believe that anti-Semites are completely unaware of the absurdity of their replies. They know that their remarks are frivolous, open to challenge. But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past.
