The Second icewind dale is much better than the first, reccomend it over the first any day.
I never could play IWD II all the way through, and I just can't stomach that opening town one more time...

It's on the list after ID II.

Divine Divinity should also be included somewhere on that list.

Nintendo blocking 18+ Wii U content in Europe until 11 p.m.

Nintendo of Europe is blocking Wii U content in the region that is rated PEGI 18+ between the hours of 3 a.m. and 11 p.m., according to a Eurogamer report. Under these stipulations, the four-hour window of 11 p.m. to 3 a.m. is the only time users can purchase games like ZombiU or Assassin's Creed III or even view trailers for such games...

I have Kentucky 6-0 (4-0 SEC; 4-0 East), that is despite adding Virginia Tech and Florida State to the SEC (moved Missouri to the West and added FSU and VT to the obvious East with U of K). Beaten 4 ranked teams (all in top 15) in a row. Freshman Quarterback's accuracy is a little low, so I'm throwing a lot of interceptions, but luckily my freshman running back is a star (as well as my freshman receivers). Also, my young defense is lead by my star freshman, and Heisman candidate middle linebacker. Even if I finish this miracle run to the SEC championship, I am pretty sure an amazing LSU team (they are 6-0 (5-0 SEC; 4-0 West) and killing everyone) is going to stomp me...but I'll settle for a Sugar Bowl this year (LSU is going to get the Nat'l Champ. spot, I'm sure). Next year I am aiming for undefeated or bust, and a USC-esque dynasty. It will be tough though, with a 16 team death trap of an SEC (atleast 'Bamas run of FOUR straight SEC titles (THREE out of FOUR of those with National Titles)) looks as if it is coming to an end, praise Allah, they are 3-3 (1-3 SEC; 0-3 West).

Gosh, these video games make me miss my high school football years. Granted, the only schools I ever got offered scholarships to are too small for this game. :laugh:

Ah.  No, that's an FPS game.  Telltale's is entirely different: story-driven drama relying mostly on dialogue choices, but they too are planning a 2013 release for the second season of their game.

I guess you'll have to save that video link for watching once you've finished the entire thing, then.  My advice for trouble-free gameplay: download all the episodes before playing anything (so that the patches are all applied and the risk for savegame quirks are minimised), then after a playthrough of each episode, back up your save games along with the very critical prefs.prof file.  Best of luck.

My mother thanks you, my father thanks you, my sister thanks you, and I thank you!

Finished the thing already? :-)

By the way, again, for those who've already played through the first season, or do not plan to and might find this interesting, give this little work of mine a look.  My ratings and stats could use an improvement.  Probably the best (likely only) use of the Τη Υπερμάχω Στρατηγώ for the rescoring of a video game.

Yes sir, that would be precisely why I reinstalled. ;D I've been watching Forgotten Empires develop since last Summer, I'm really excited to see it finally ready for release.

I've just finished the first and started the second. The plot seems indeed to be better however I find the D&D 3.0 system quite weird.

Still playing Civ IV. I'm playing it right now, in fact. Well, not literally right now, as I'm typing right now. But after I hit the post button I will alt-tab my way back to the game. Then I'll be playing it...

I installed Civ IV only hours ago. What a coincidence.

Have just finished 2 new themes, the first with violins backed by full oriental instrumental ensemble (the best, I think, of all the renditions put up), the second with an abrasively raw nai and some earlier portions of the final scene included. There are some alternative versions of each with different closing music or voice/music synchronisation. The links to those are in the video descriptions.

BGEE is one of those games I had wished I had waited a month or two to play. The initial release was great, but the bugs were annoying to say the least (I believe they have been resolved as of now). Still, I will probably wait until several of my favorite mods become compatible before giving it another go. I don't know if you are the modding type, but the NPC Project and Unfinished Business will only add to your enjoyment of an otherwise masterpiece.

Just played video darts in a Kinect Party game, and got a bulls-eye, for a 50-pt. achievement! Yay!  :D

I recently re-bought Dragon Age: Origins and have been playing that on and off. I'm also about to start me up a game of Civ IV here tonight.  I heard they're making a new version of Age of Empires 2 with improved graphics, but I also heard that it's like $20, so I'll pass on that. Also glad I passed on the new Simcity, apparently it's as buggy as ell.

I found Red Dead Redemption for 16 bucks at Vacs and Videos. Never played a Rockstar game before, but I look forward to firing this one up.
