One last spam post

I don't think I will be buying Rome II TOtal war

the first Total war game I wont be buying...

I don't like the dlc spam they are doing.




All those factions which are locked, future dlc...
Back in the olden days, those would unlock when you defeated them on a campaign map!!! You didn't need to pay money for them months later in order to gain hype!!!

No, in the old days you opened up My Computer/C:/Program Files/TOTAL WAR and found the factions file and Cut/Pasted them into the UNLOCKED line.   Grin

I remember playing Sid Meier's Pirates on the Commodore 64.  I had the power cable on top of an upturned fan and would play the game for 15 minutes, then shut it down for 45 min while it cooled.  The remake in the early 2000's had pretty much all the gameplay elements of the old one but without the quirks of the C64.

I am loving this trip down memory lane.  I remember playing the heck out of Lords of the Realm, Oregon Trail II, Field of Glory (an old DOS game about the Hundred Days campaign), Close Combat I/II/II, Doom/Doom II, Wolfenstein...

The only old games I still play are AoE and AoK.  If I can ever find a copy of Close Combat III, I would be all over that.

The CC games were the best. I remember downloading a demo of A Bridge Too Far when I was 8 and playing that for way too long until my parents made me uninstall it.

I played Sid's pirates too but on the PC

I always tried to get the bishop rank in the end Wink jk lol

I always liked the way invasion fleets worked, to see ai actually take land from other factions without my help. Sadly, when I played it on the ds or something it seems they took that out, so when the invasion fleet went somewhere it literally did nothing

anyway, was lots of fun getting a ship of the line

I got a SOtL once or twice but mostly made do with Schooners.  I would get a Brig here and there if I wanted to take over a city and needed the manpower (which when you get old is one of the better ways of making money as constantly fighting saps you of speed), but otherwise, it was always the fast, nimble ships.  I could even kill the big ships by staying in front and raking their bows.

Speaking of tall ships games, I've actually been playing Pirates of the Caribbean with the Build 14 mod on it lately.  It is a ton of fun and a million times better than the stock game.  Tons of content,  I highly recommend it if anyone happens to have a copy of POTC which is not so easy to get, unfortunately.

I've been contemplating purchasing Sid Meier's Pirates again, since it is only $10 on Steam. Wonderful game. Plus, it'll satisfy my need for Sid Meier's games until Civ V is within the budget  Cheesy

With all the DA stuff lately I decided to start a new game of Dragon Age: Origins tonight. It still surprises me how easily attached you get to Duncan, especially considering how little you actually see of him. Anyway, back to the game, there are darkspawn spiders to kill!

I've had difficulty playing that game. Mostly because in the past, my computer hasn't been able to handle it. But, I'm planning on trying again.

Eventually.

38 Studios' Kingdoms of Amalur Rights Going to Auction This Month

Last year, following the cataclysmic implosion of 38 Studios, the Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning rights are scheduled to go to auction as early as this month. Richard Land, the court-appointed receiver for 38, told WPRI that Copernicus and the Amalur IP will go on sale "soon."...

After about 5 years, I've finally gone online with my Xbox 360. I wasn't going to spend all that money for a wireless adapter for the system, but I lacked a cable of adequate length to plug it in to a wired connection. That changed when I got a 50ft ethernet cable for cheap off of eBay recently. I've decided to go online because a lot of my college friends game online, too. You can find me under the same username I have here. Send me a private message or post your own name here if you want me to know who you are.

I wish I could complete challenges but I can't.  If I try to 'draw' a circle in the air with the tip of my thumb it takes a series of erratic jumps of maybe a quarter inch or so.  I never notice this disability except in video games, but then it's just about fatal.  I'm unable to hit most moving targets or steer fast moving vehicles.

I suspect there are many disabled people who can't finish computer games but are too embarrassed to mention it.  I'd like to see more companies give the option of unlocking the whole game if customers wish to - (just don't give them medals or high scores).  This would allow disabled people to see more of the games they buy.

Yes, I did get it today, even though it is icky and stuff... I figured all the characters get killed a lot, which means they pay for what they did, and that evens it out in a really awful film noir way.  Smiley I try not to take games too literally. In a way, the game's so complex it's almost art- and art can have a multitude of uses and meanings.

Now I'm off to get blowed up in the not-so-imaginary Los Santos! It was nice knowing everybody. I'll take oxygen breaks every few days. Wink

I bought GTA5 this morning ... the clincher for me was discovering Rockstar included the ability to skip challenges if you failed more than a few times like in LA Noir.  I have a kind of nerve tremor in my thumb that totally sucks at video games. 

woohoo!  now where is the god-mode cheat?   Wink

Cool, skipping challenges and god mode. Maybe next they'll have games that play themselves.

I wish I could complete challenges but I can't.  If I try to 'draw' a circle in the air with the tip of my thumb it takes a series of erratic jumps of maybe a quarter inch or so.  I never notice this disability except in video games, but then it's just about fatal.  I'm unable to hit most moving targets or steer fast moving vehicles.

I suspect there are many disabled people who can't finish computer games but are too embarrassed to mention it.  I'd like to see more companies give the option of unlocking the whole game if customers wish to - (just don't give them medals or high scores).  This would allow disabled people to see more of the games they buy.

Hand eye coordination can be trained. In fact, videogames are one way that doctors encourage people to do so.

After about 5 years, I've finally gone online with my Xbox 360. I wasn't going to spend all that money for a wireless adapter for the system, but I lacked a cable of adequate length to plug it in to a wired connection. That changed when I got a 50ft ethernet cable for cheap off of eBay recently. I've decided to go online because a lot of my college friends game online, too. You can find me under the same username I have here. Send me a private message or post your own name here if you want me to know who you are.

Perhaps. Though if MS is anything like Sony they plan on keeping the console somewhat relevant for a couple more years. It could be worse: Nintendo hasn't been relevant since the day before they released the WiiU.

So it's been a long time since I played a GTA game, probably like 7+ years, and even then I wasn't that interested. I did see a vid of the new one though and it looked... well at least better than what I remember. So what exactly happens? Do you have missions you have to complete, like "go shoot the cops over on X street" or whatever? Is the storyline important, or is it just one thing among many that you can do? How many hours of gameplay can you expect to get out of it? Just general thoughts?
