    Dwarf Fortress is now in 3D! Well no not really, but the z (up/down) axis is now finished. I'm going to have to relearn the entire game now.

    Edit: I started a new fortress but there were kobolds living in the site I chose so my all my colonists died.

    Heh, not funny, there... DF in 3D... what a bad joke.

    Actually, I'd rather get the Orange box. I've been into Half-Life-o-mania in the past few weeks.

    Xmas, here we go.

    I just hope I am able to deserve it. With bad grades, I won't get this pack.

    I have Vista, came with the laptop. It's okay actually. Kinda like: Win 98 < Vista < XP < Linux. Though I suppose Vista might move a position to the right in time... We laughed with XP too at the start.

    I'll switch to Vista as soon as it stops being incompatible with everything.

    Mind you, sounds more likely a full-time switch to Linux is more likely. Only problem is my video card appears to give Ubuntu problems, but then I haven't tried it with the non-RC version of 7.10.

    Well, then. Call of Duty 4.

    Ball kickin'. I absolutely love it. It's massively linear, it doesn't do anything new at all, it's not just a fun, simple shooter a la halo. But yet rocks arse.

    I can't explain it, really. It's massively immersive, that much i can tell. And it's got just the right amount of eye candy.

    But, but. There's something more. Remember how Brothers In Arms really tried to make you feel like a band of brothers? I mean, you really came to like the bastards during the game, but CoD4 is something else. There's no character development, but the communication and the organization in the first mission just got me hooked.

    I daresay it even beats HL2. Not by much. But it does.
    #
    E_net4 8 years ago
    Hmm...
    (Steam prices)
    Half Life 2 costs: 29.95$
    Call of Duty costs: 69.95$

    I still say HL2 pwns.
    #
    Crazy 8 years ago
    So you're making an argument based solely on price?
    #
    Amarth 8 years ago
    Of course. I mean...
    Freecell costs: 0$

    Thus freecell beats EVERY OTHER GAME IN EXISTENCE. Well, except for the ones you get money for if you play them, but show me one of those...

    For those not convinced, it's not entirely true. Try creating equivalence classes based on price and then calculate the quotient group, and thus we show that the class of free games (all equal, of course) beats every other class of games. Impose a total ordering on it and do fun maths! Now bug off, I go play Nethack. Beats Call Of Duty 4 by a LONG SHOT. And most definitely beats the sum of CoD, Deus Ex, HL2, the entire Sims series and your mom.

    Okay, not really. I'll go play Super Mario Galaxy. THAT beats CoD by a long shot. Wouldn't want to play your mom anyway.
    #
    E_net4 8 years ago
    Actually, no. I was incrementing the price factor to both games to show you that HL2 still pwns.
    Freecell is free, but it's not good enough to be better than HL2.

    By the way, how is one supposed to play his mom...

    Have you even played CoD4? What i said still applies. You're only argument was price.

    You are such a blessed creature...

    Ahem:

    This would mean CoD4 pwns HL2. But:
    Half Life 2 costs: 29.95$
    Call of Duty costs: 69.95$
    HL2 pwns CoD4, because the prices were added to the overall. And HL2 wins, because you said "Not by much".
    #
    Crazy 8 years ago
    Well, if you factor in that i paid 30 USD for HL2 and i didn't pay for CoD4, then your argument is obliterated.

    I do not look into piracy when it comes to rating games.

    He could've just as well gotten the game as a gift, or played it over at a friend's place.
    #
    E_net4 8 years ago
    Well, at least someone DID pay for the game.

    To be fair, Deus Ex beats the sum of CoD, HL2, and the entire Sims series by itself.

    ...Wow. Way to subscribe to argument from lack of imagination.
    #

    Actually, yes, i played it at a friend's place.

    But no, he didn't pay for it, either.


    Ofcourse, you know, if i actually had to pay for everything in my computer (Including hardware. Most of that is bummed off.), i couldn't afford one.

    Here's a fun little Flash game you all should try...

    <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.parapluesch.de/whiskystore/test.htm">http://www.parapluesch.de/whiskystore/test.htm</a><!-- m -->

    You play a psychiatrist who works at a mental institute for cuddly toys.

    Aye. Play it. It's intelligent, funny and captivating. Dub is a hard one, though, but I got him in the end. Poor boy.

    You've probably heard of this game, or at least the tech demo it is based on.

    Just got my hands on this game Penumbra: Overture. This is an exceptionally creepy game that really gets under your skin, with an innovative physic engine that is used in a way even superior to HL2. The game takes you to a mine deep somewere in the Greenland cold wastes. The mine is infested with monsters and other things not of our world.
    So if you're in for a serious creepy experienc, go download the demo or the game's predecessor Penumbra, a tech demo designed to show the physics engine Penumbra: Overture is using.

    Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?

    This is a way too good idea.

    It should be developed in a cool game. If I have time, I'll think about it.

    Wow. Impresively confusing! XD

    That IS a way cool idea. Pity it doesn't explain what's going on beforehand, because you waste one cursor figuring out what the hell you're doing.
