Re: Hawken

I've been with Hawken since the beta days and love it. I think it is the best mech game out there at the moment. The devs are earnest and the community is generally polite and fun to play with (unlike the toxic MWO community). Definitely one of the best F2P games out there you can try.

Re: How well do you know your classic video games?

I got 9. I got a kick out of seeing a screenshot from the old Star Wars game. Forgot all about that.

I am surprised there was not screenshot from Battlezone or Missile Command, two of my favs!

Re: Chinese couple sells children for in game items :(

That was extremely well said. I confess to sometimes wondering where the line is between gaming addiction and gaming enthusiasm. Like you, I have a hundred or so games spread on Steam and other services, something I imagine amounts to thousands of dollars. Now, I accumulated such a library over a pe...

Re: Gunpoint

Did you ever get the "Alright, have one! Just stop it!" achievement for beating a guard senseless? :lol: I got it by accident when I was punching a guy and I started to see funny comments at the bottom of the screen. As soon as it said "You know, there isn't an achievement for this" I made it a poin...

Re: Steam Summer Sale 2014 is ON!

I feel like I should run around in circles screaming. I have no idea why. LOL! :lol: I've done quite well on sales this past week. Not just Steam, but on Gamers Gate, too. I got Gunpoint for $2.50, Shadowrun Returns for $5, and just picked up State of Decay for $5. I am a happy gamer. :D I have a b...

Gunpoint

Well, this was an unexpected surprise. I saw this was on sale over at Steam for something like $2.50, so I gave the demo a try because I've heard nothing but good things about it. And, yeah, I have to say this is the best little game I ever played! The humor is very funny, the cool jazz soundtrack i...

Wow, I didn't think it would start this soon! I figured another week or two! Hurray!

Magrunner free on GOG

Never played the game, but GOG is now giving it away for free:

Seems like Portal. Might give it a try. The price is certainly right.

Re: Big Team Fortress Update hits at 8:00 PM EST.

I was just playing to give the first update a try. I like how when you teleport, you get to see some bread roll off the teleporter. LOL! :lol:

And that movie was great. I think it is long past time for a feature length TF2 movie. 8)

Re: Big Team Fortress Update hits at 8:00 PM EST.

I can't wait to see what it is. I love that game. After spending so much time in "realistic shooters", it is just fun to be able to hit someone with a frying pan. :lol:

Re: E3 2014 discussion thread

I think the PC and console's obsession with graphics is one of the things that is hurting the industry. Don't get me wrong, I like nice graphics as much as the next gamer, but NOT at the expense of the rest of the game. Graphics in gaming is becoming like FX in the movies: too many game devs are spe...

Re: E3 2014 discussion thread

This article sort of supports my previous post about this year's E3 being a bust, and little more than a rehash of last year's E3. Here's why: E3 2014 attendance rises 1.5 percent, exhibitors drop 13 percent I've been a gamer my whole life, and probably will be until the day I die, but I have been r...

Re: E3 2014 discussion thread

From a PC gamer perspective this year's E3 is not impressing me. So far I haven't heard a single game announcement that has me excited. For the most part, the games announced I already knew were in the works (some were pushed back to 2015 for various reasons), and the other are just bleh. Just a yaw...
