    I assume pretty much everyone has it at this point, but I have two DoTA 2 beta invites, if anyone wants them.

    I would take one of those invites off your hands.

    I just want to take a minute and thank @Iolo publicly for the unexpected gift of Shogun 2 for Mrs. Croaker.
    It made her day, which in turn, made mine. He is a classy crab indeed, amidst a forest of like minded creatures.

    @Iolo: You rock
    @Everyone : You're all awesome too.

    What the shit?

    Why is the Witcher downloading 16gb?

    EDIT: And thanks much to @rikdaly for Titan Attacks!

    Pause the download, wait about 10 seconds, then exit Steam. When you restart, it should be back to normal.

    Nothing special, but enough to run the majority of games at least meidum settings. Mainly got it as middle ground upgrade from the trashy laptop I was stuck with the last few months, and can work toward a real beefy one later.

    I've never played it but I always wanted too. I picked it up from GOG some years back, but I will make a point to play it this summer.

    Single use $5 off an EA Sports game on Origin, use this code at checkout: yg7umag4a

    This was on the reciept to my $10 haircut. Great Clips is doing some cross promotion with EA I guess.

    I'm never going to use this, so if you're crazy enough to want to buy an EA Sports game from Origin, here's five bucks.

    Way back when, I played the shit out of Lords of the Realm II. I also played some Lords of Magic but my PC at the time couldn't handle it and never picked it back up.

    I got the Lords of the Realm thing on GoGo and it is good but if I recall right it had some issues out of the box with colors in windows 7/vista and afaik you can't play it in a window unless there's some mega secret way to do it.

    Back to Lords of Magic, coming from Lords of the Realm 2, I do distinctly remember being disappointed with how much it focused on action over management of resources and I think that's why I never ended up getting it of GoG when I got LotR/LotR2.

    Also, I never played LotR3. Dunno how it compares.

    EA Sports is bad enough. But then on Origin? That's just rubbing salt in the wound.

    I got burned so hard on Dino-D-Day that I am infuriated that Orion Dino Beatdown even exists. I want co-op dino killing, but I am so sore from the bait-n-switch game previously mentioned. Ugh.

  • SmokeStacksSmokeStacks I see the footbathRegistered User regular
    I stopped caring about Dino D-Day the second they changed it from a free mod to a $20 pricetag.

    Historically par for the course for Source Engine mods, but still.

    I prepurchased Dino-D-Day when it said it was a single player and online game. A day or two before release they silently took out the single player campaign and proceeded to suck butts on the multiplayer.

    I'm glad to inform the gentlemen in this classy thread that I managed to remove one game from my backlog! I just finished Ys: Oath In Fehghana! On normal, there is no way I'm playing it on a harder more, I think.

    Now maybe I can try playing Bastion.

    Edit.- Weird, my sig says "Account is not public", I am quite sure I haven't changed any settings, and I see a couple of other sigs with the same problem, is there something wrong?

    Edit 2.- Oh! Now it's back to normal!

    I'm having fun with Orion Dino Beatdown. Nothing like getting picked up by a bird and flown to the other side of the map, alone and cold with the generators down near the base you're at.

    Having bit the bullet on Port Royale 3, I can't recommend it to anyone like me looking for a Pirates! clone or a game similar to Port Royale 1. It's a business sim like Patrician, just set in the Caribbean.

    Lords of the Realm II was fantastic for its time.

    Lords of the Realm III was an entirely different game and I personally thought it was horrible.

    Store visit cancelled - so yeah, if you need somene for something and my rubbish desktop can cope with it, let me know
