Don't like the snow? You can make a bookmark with the following text instead of a url: javascript:snowStorm.toggleSnow(). Clicking it will toggle the snow on and off.
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    Okay so it's like they went to find the most obnoxious possible example of a genre I dislike as a rule and decided to remake that. Awesome, I'll avoid that.

    And EVERYONE is a fucking newb when playing HoN or DotA for the first 100 times.

    But GTAIV is still really great even with the port troubles. It's an amazing game.

    I promise I'll try GalCiv II. Just as soon as I'm less obsessed with GTA IV.

    I just picked up GalCivII - Ultimate edition, and was really disappointed

    I am a big fan of many other 4X's like SMAC, MOO2 and Civ1,2 and 4.
    But Galciv is SERIOUSLY lacking in documentation.
    From what I have grasped of the documentation, it is a micromanagment WHORE. Pretty much requiring you to adjust your sliders every turn.
    The only overflow is for research, and the displayed statistics are NOT WYSIWYG.
    There is no choice of combat tactics.

    If you obsess over getting the maximum out of your empire - forget about GalCivII.
    If you like to know the game mechanics in-depth - forget about GalCivII
    If you like some semblance of control for battles - Forget about GalCivII

    Into Alien Crossfire? It has been almost 10 years. Time to update your datalinks.

    You thought HL2 was short? I felt like it was one of the longest fps I've ever played.

    I thought it dragged on a bit too long. I could have done without Ravenholme completely.

    What? Are you kidding me? That was my favorite part of the whole game! :shock:

    Did absolutely nothing for me. Didn't scare me, wasn't fun.

    It was the most wonderful grav gun playground.

    Obviously Loki is tricking us with his tricks.

    He is a trickster, as has long been written.

    Gravity gun never hooked me. I mean, sure, I used it during Ravenholme because no other weapons were around until you get the shotgun, but it was incredibly tedious using it as a weapon. The most fun I had with it was in a HL2DM game at a LAN where someone grabbed a container and uprighted it, and we spent 10 minutes putting stuff in it. Bit odd that I got the most fun out of it doing digital housework.
