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!

    I'm really sad they took his name off of the game

    IIRC it was still sold with his name attached in Europe.

    And on Steam

    Edit: Well in Europe atleast.

    Same. Wish I still had some of 'em, all I own right now is CMR 2.

    I got to try Richard Burns Rally as well - oh man that was hard, but so satisfying when you did it right.

    Thanks Cliffordius for Osmos. I was riding extremely low today (just got back from the dr office - officially have Strep throat, pink eye caused by the strep) and I came home to a new game. Wooo!!

    I'm glad I could brighten your day. As you play Osmos, imagine that you are one of your own white blood cells, gobbling up those nasty germs that afflict you.
    Want Beat Hazard? Make up a movie synopsis using the game's name as the movie title, best one wins.

    Want KotOR? Design an awesome lightsaber, 2 copies to gift. Doesn't need to be a masterpiece, but I've pre empted you filthy mogrels so no dongs.

    Want DiRT 2? Show me something awesome to do with cars, doesn't matter what it is.

    Gogo.

    For KOTOR:
    jNQHH.jpg
    A fancy lightsaber. The blade's length and color can be adjusted with the two knobs on the right, which adds significant complexity to the inner working, resulting in a much larger hilt. It was built for a paranoid left-handed Sith, so there's a fake power button on the other side. A right-handed Jedi would press that, setting off a deadly booby-trap. The Sith was also clumsy, so the power buttons are oversized.

    Steam name: Cliffordius

    I would love a copy because Monkey Island is one of my favorite series of all time, it's the only one left on Steam that I don't have, and my wife is starting to give me "the look" over my Steam sale purchases :mrgreen:

    $5 is probably fine for it. I think that works out about 2-3 pound? I'm just bitter because I got it day one. But it has its moments. The marine campaign is good for a few laughs. But I bought it more for multiplayer, and found it to be pretty rough.

    Well,the singleplayer is not thaat bad. I just got it expecting to have some awesome fun with multiplayer like i did with AvP2,and the multiplayer was really meh.

    It is absolutely worth that. It's still worth the $40 it normally goes for. Such a great game.

    WANT TRINE? HERE'S HOW TO GET IT.

    Iolo was awesome enough to gift me a copy of Just Cause 2, so I'm passing along the love with a giftpack of Trine today! I already own it, so I have 8 of these puppies to give away.

    What do you have to do? A GOOD DEED.

    I'm serious. Go out and do a good deed, right now. Help an old lady cross the street. Refill the coffee, even though you didn't take the last cup. Be nice to someone you're not normally nice to.

    Then come back here and tell us about it. (Also, PM me because this thread moves too fast and I easily might miss it.)

    We're running on the honour system here, boys and girls.

    MAKE ME PROUD.

    EDIT: BTW, send me an email address I can gift this to when you PM me. If you've already PM'd me and haven't included an email addres, PM me again, please.

    3/8 gone!

    5/8 remaining!

    Still plenty of Trine remaining! If you've posted in the thread about your good deed but haven't PM'd me, your good deed still counts, but I don't really know about it! PM me and you will get some delicious Trine!

    Alright, hopefully this works, even if it happened before I read this post. :lol:

    So a couple of hours ago, around 11:00, I was waiting for a legal hearing to take place at the State Labor Court, and I see a woman waiting next to me, so I try to start some conversation in order to make waiting a bit more interesting.

    It turns out she wasn't an attorney or a client, but someone that was seeking legal advice regarding her current job; so instead of giving her a business card and setting an appointment, I heard her explain her situation and gave her legal advice, while telling her where she should go in order to get further aid, free of charge.

    The game ran surprisingly well back when I had a 4850.

    Like, really surprisingly well.

    It's far more optimized than the STALKER heritage of many of its devs.

    If you've got a 4850, a reasonable processor (I have a core 2 duo, 8gb of ram) and good ram, you should be good to go.

    And I'm not talking 640x480 no texture playable, it was a very pretty game even with most settings on medium-high at 1680x1050
