Any reason for drawing attention to your errors with italics?

December 12, 2008 8:34:31 AM

"Valve marketing director Doug Lombardi had stated that news on or an announcement of Episode Three may be revealed near the end of 2008"

From Wiki, start of the year. Watch this space i guess.

What a tough act to follow on eh, ep3 needs to be one of the finest games ever created. How do you even start to develop that?!

December 17, 2008 7:44:43 PM

I forgot to add one to the coming months lists: The Witched Enhanced Edition.

Only today I fixed a problem that I had with my steam installed copy of the game. For some reason a Language entry was missing in the registry. Adding it with a trial and error value gave me the desired result (now I can actually see the texts in the menu and in-game).
December 19, 2008 7:01:43 AM

OK, right now I play:

-- much harder and more serious game than WOW, can play your character anywhere there is a computer and internet. Much cheaper than WOW if you decide to pay (you can even play it completely free if you want). Therefore I switched to Runescape. Been playing it #1 for almost 3 years now. Highly recommended.

2) Civilization 2
--- old classic still rocks, different every time. Play this one forever like chess.

3) Far Cry, Far Cry 2 shoot, I love this game

4) Crysis I feel super -- great storyline and game play

5) Spore I like evolution, it's fun to do!
December 19, 2008 7:14:46 AM

Lol Runescape. Its a terrible game for young children and you deserved to be thrashed publically.
@Bigmac - Good game once you get past the weird controls and the boring as hell start. Also, when you take potions and small red diamonds appear on your display dont panic like me when i thought my GPU was overheating :D 

No one has mentioned any flash games yet :o

December 30, 2008 5:05:36 PM

I always like these threads. Lets see, the last five games I have been playing...

1.) Disciples II
2.) Counter-Strike: Source
3.) Neverwinter Nights
4.) The Witcher
5.) Fallout 3

The Witcher and Fallout 3 I have put on hold until I get all my parts for my new rig. I only have my laptop with me right now, so playing those games on it does not give the best performance. I played the demo of Disciples 2 every once and a while, but never got a copy until recently. I enjoy TBS. For CS: Source, it's been a long while since I played FPS multiplayer, and since I conveniently have it and the source engine works well on my laptop, I picked it up again. And I always played NWN since it came out, and have not stopped yet.

5)Colin Mcrae Dirt

I was a huge Elite fan back in the day (Amiga 1200) but I could never get on with Frontier Elite 2, it's a shame really it was a great looking game and you could land on planets and stuff and it was more deep in terms of gameplay then Elite.

In 2008 I played the following games.

1) Call of Duty 4 Multilayer
2) Supreme Commander
3) Oblivion
4) Thief 2
5) Wing Commander 3 & 4 (DVD version, if you do want to play this game I have it on DVD it's well worth paying the extra premium)
6) Thief 3 Deadly Shadows
7) Knights of The Old Republic
8) Psychonauts (highly recommended)
9) HL2 Episode 2
10) Audiosurf
11) Mass Effect
12) Medieval 2 Total War
13) Company of Heroes

2008 is the first year I didn't go back to playing GTA Vice City which I think is the best game ever made. I didn't buy that many new games, I'm getting older I kept wanting to play games that I previously enjoyed (Thief, Wing Commander and KOTOR). Saying that I have to confess I'm a bit high in CoD4 Multiplayer it's highly addictive (if frustrating at time but I always go back to it), I am starting to get board of it now.

Audiosurf is well work the $10 on steam and so is Psychonauts. I didn't enjoy Mass Effect at all, it runs sluggish on my setup (C2D E6400 @3.04Ghz, 2Gb DDR2 800Mhz, 8800GT) and I just couldn't get into the storyline nor the characters the whole game just felt cold and the combat wasn't fun at all.
January 17, 2009 2:57:10 AM

1) CoD4 Multiplayer
2) Far Cry 2
3) Mercs 2
4) Crysis (now that I got a 4850 and can actually enjoy it!)
5) GTA IV (#5 because it runs terrible on my rig)

Honorable mention:

-Mortal Kombat 1&2 on MAME
-R.B.I. Baseball on NES emulator
-Contra on NES emulator - 20 years later and I still thoroughly enjoy this game!
January 21, 2009 4:58:28 PM

1) COD: WAW Multi
2) L4D
3) COD4 Multi
4) R6 Vegas 2 Multi
5) BF2 & BF2142

I plan to pick up Crysis Warhead and see if its worth trying to play. I have Crysis, but it never ran more than 15fps so I de-installed it. Ive gotten new parts since then, so I figure I will give it another try.
