    You're crazy. 144h gaming a week?

    Maybe, a little bit.
    And btw, I miss calculated because I have been playing "only" 2 years and 2 months. Which makes around 300 euros.
    So it's +150 euros to my wallet!

    Now spend that money on a nice, singleplayer game.

    Eh, I'm just slashing through Gothic II Gold. It's a good thing I speak german, as I always try to play games in their original language. Awesome game, by the way. I recommend it. As singleplayer game to spend the money on, of course.

    Ridiculously paranoid copy protection, though. I bought the game and still have yet to play it... it refused to run on my computer.

    Gothic III, though, is a damn fine game.

    If by "the WoW expansion pack" you're referring to "Wrath of the Lich King" (the not-yet-released expansion to WoW), I must notify you that he'd effectively have to re-purchase WoW in the process.

    If by "the WoW expansion pack" you're referring to "The Burning Crusade" (the WoW expansion pack released last year, IIRC), I must notify you that he already had that expansion pack (also, see above notification).

    I guess that you missed this from the first post (or I didn't tell it so clearly) but I've quit WoW entirely.
    Account is sold and I don't even feel going pack. And yeah like Grim said I'd need to buy Original World of Warcraft, WoW: The Burning Crusade, and the upcoming WoW: Wrath of the Lich King. No thanks!

    Gothic III won't run on my computer. Well, basically it works, but most of the furniture is invisible (that's better than before, though; the ground was invisible...).
    I also recommend Uplink and The Guild II. The latter one will have a big patch (which may be classified as "free small expansion").

    Just to mention that you can buy Day of Defeat: Source from Steam for 4.99$ until thursday. The Valve team also made a free weekend (which was the last one), because of the game's new update. Achievements, death camera freeze on the enemy, and some other stuff.

    Wow, it's only ~4euros or so, gotta buy and try after I get my new laptop! (Tomorrow or so.)

    4 if you include the tax. (Americans... -.-)
    Remember that the € is ever increasing when compared to the dollar.

    I guess you missed the "tilde" in the front of number four.
    It's like approx four euros, I did not check dollars real price before posting, forgive me.

    Argh, Steam + Games are taking 50GB.
    Really really bad, I'll have to delete some (at least I won't need any CD's/DVD's to reinstall it).

    [Edit]
    Okay, Steam caused me to lol. They're selling Titan Quest for 19.99$, the addon for 19.99$. And they're selling Titan Quest Gold for 19.99$.

    Hey, you can get the entire Unreal series for ~$45, so a bit of price wackiness as regards games with expansion packs is nothing special. ;P

    Narvius 10 years ago
    But really, that's crazy. 50% off if you buy both at once?!

    Steam does 50% off deals regularly. Usually for $20 games, not a $20 game and its $20 expansion pack, but still... it's not unprecedented.

    Okay, Titan Quest is weird (I had a copy, but never really played it - now, after seeing it on Steam I tried it).
    Archery is the most multimassively-AoE-superdestruction-whatever-attack of doom ever.
    The more enemies are in one place, the higher the chance that all will die from one freakin' attack.
    Because every single arrow deals splash damage (ie. damages enemies around the main target) and pierces through all enemies it encounters (thus being able to hit more than one as main target, splashing multiple times). Additionally there's a 16% chance to fire three arrows at once. And a 16% chance to deal some massive damage over time.
    That's absolutely ridiculous. I guess that was a try to make an archer's life easier when it comes to fighting huge mobs (which are encountered frequently)... but that's too much power.
    Except that, it's awesome. Well, there's one thing. Why are spears considered ranged weapons?
    I'll try a mage next. I guess that won't be so easy.

    At first I thought this was just a masterfully executed nintendo parody, but truth is, I think it applies to the gaming industry in general nowadays. Still a fun comic tho.

    Yeah... that's the mainstream industry for you.

    Not actually gaming, but with computers.

    Is there a way to turn that clock Windows has on it's taskbar to AM/PM-Format?

    [Edit]

    Okay, found it. Sometimes some googling really helps. Note that "sometimes" means "almost always".

    Must. Get. Warhead.
    I think I'm going to download that video and copy it all over my desktop, and create hundred of folders devoted to more copies until my hard drive is full. Then I'll buy a new 1TB hard drive and fill that as well.

    Yay for Warhead. I see moar war against human things, which was the IMHO more fun part of Crysis. After the aliens came, it just wasn't as fun since everything needed a crapload of shooting and überweapons to be killed.

    Well, not the weapons, I remember being stuck in the alien complex first time with no ammo at all, and beating the alien floatey bastards with my fists. Couldn't even use strenght mode cuz they instakill me if I don't use armor.

    Those are fun mostly because they're modifiable. Also, against nanosuits, the dart-launcher is totally irreplaceable. One shot, enemy is down, punch him a couple times and repeat.

    There is this RPG called Conquer.
    It's a bit like Runescape, only much better.
    Although the client is a bit big

    Thought I would toss up a few indie games I have been playing (Some may have been posted here)

    Ev Nova-Space trading and combat game with a 2d top down view. There is 6 main storylines to choose from. Open ended but once you choose a storyline your stuck helping them. Loads of mods, even a few total conversions. <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.ambrosiasw.com/games/evn/">http://www.ambrosiasw.com/games/evn/</a><!-- m -->

    Flatspace 2-Flatspace 2 is a space trading and exploration game. 3D with a top down viewpoint, the game has elements of classic space trading games like Elite and Rogue-like games such as Nethack. <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.lostinflatspace.com/">http://www.lostinflatspace.com/</a><!-- m -->

    Clonk Rage-Clonk is an entertaining, action-packed game of strategy, tactics, and skill. It can be played by a single player, with up to four players on one computer, or any number of players in local networks or via internet. Its hard to explain just check the link. Lots of player created maps and objects available. <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.clonk.de/cr.php?lng=en">http://www.clonk.de/cr.php?lng=en</a><!-- m -->

    Clonk Endeavour is now freeware (Previous clonk game)

    Castle Crashers just recently came out and it's an extremely fun Indy hack n' slash by the team at Behemoth who did Alien Hominid. It's an XBox Live Arcade game, but still worth checking out if you've got a 360.

    I just pre-ordered Warhammer Online. It's coming live 18.9 in Europe and open beta comes 7.9.
    Anyone else going to give it a try?
    #
    Idiota 10 years ago
    From what I've heard, the release version is going to be a bit crappy because they've cut a lot of content from the game. I don't know if I'll ever give it a try, but I know at least that it's not going to be from the release and on.
