    Yeah, I went pretty all-in and "roleplayed" through Amnesia. Hell, when I played through Doom 3 I did shit like crouch down next to dead people I found to "check their pulse"... :redface:

    Doom 3 got more annoying to me than anything: It got to the point I could predict where an enemy would spawn in behind me and walk past that point, then turn around and go back and watch him spawn in.

    I got it way back in the day when it first came out and played about half way through it. I just couldn't deal with the monster closets anymore.

    I replayed Doom 3 a year ago. It got to the point where I went up some stairs, entered a room, went "I bet something is going to spawn behind me" turned around back to the top of the stairs in time to see an imp finish coming through the door below, slowly trudge up the stairs in a scripted sequence, and get blown away point blank by my shotgun.

    stukov was in hots? are you sure?

    Did you play it?
    Yes he is. He shows up in the second half of the game. (Specifically on the mission to investigate a Terran science facility making hybrids) and he sticks around after that.

    So GTA 5 got a update today freemode events

    These trigger while in freemode and the three I played where steal cars, fly through checkpoints, and who can get the longest stoppie. My brother beat me by .1m cause he is a jerk. You can opt out of the events through your phone or just not participate. When the events starts they seem to spawn the requisite stuff with a 5 minute period to prep for em.

    Anyways GTA 5 online is a ton of fun still/now. Heists are finally in and they are pretty enjoyable. I did one last night and it had a pretty funny moment.

    Every one has to get onto this aircraft carrier, steal some jets kill some jets and as you fly away everyones radio switches to Danger Zone after some AI speech. Its amazing.

    I stopped trying with GTA because it takes about twenty minutes to get onto the game, if you're even that lucky. Maybe it's better now, but it was horrible during the original release and horrible when the PC version came out.

    It still takes a year and a half to start online but once your in the load times are nonexsistent.

    ATI finally has non shit drivers so the game runs without any hiccups or stupid artifacting now which ia nice.

    Theres also a speed game which is hilrious a teams defending a truck that cant stop as the other team tries to ram em off the road.

    However GTA V is best enjoyed with a group of people and if your just by your self then the online isnt anything special, probably awful even.

    I understand why they didn't call that game Total Warhammer but come on.

    Come on.

    Pac Man's character is difficult to explain even to the Japanese -- he is an innocent character. He hasn't been educated to discern between good and evil. He acts more like a small child than a grown-up person. Think of him as a child learning in the course of his daily activities. If someone tells him guns are evil, he would be the type to rush out and eat guns. But he would most probably eat any gun, even the pistols of policemen who need them.

    Glad I spent all of that time saving Kerrigan in Wings of Liberty so they could immediately rezerg her.

    Glad I spent all of that time playing Wings of Liberty so they could kill the best character for no good reason.

    Glad I spent all of that time playing those missions with Nova so I could feel the pain of Starcraft: Ghost all over again.

    True

    But they have put out a new game or a significant expansion for an existing game nearly every single year since 2009

    It's only been the last three or so that have had real bullshit as DLC

    On a certain level I appreciate that they put out more content for a game and don't just abandon it to work on the next project immediately, especially with games that are so ambitious in scope and scale, but god damn man

    Fuckin' Attila has like thirty dollars worth of DLC right now, what the fuck is that about

    And from that free weekend of CoH2 I'm ninety nine percent sure that's all coming down from Sega as the publisher, because hoo boy was CoH2 a mess of microtransactions

    It wouldn't be as big of a problem if the power creep wasn't that extreme

    There were units in Attila which had to be banned from competitive multiplayer because they were too OP and I heard the latest DLC has different units which completely stomp them

    Stukov-as-Infested Terran has pretty much always been true, in one form or another

    I mean

    Stukov's been around as an infested dude since Brood War. All that Heart of the Swarm really does is either retcon the particular events or adds a bit to the end saying "after being un-infested by a serum, Stukov is captured again and subjected to more experiments".

    Total Warhammer will be the only way to play "massive unit warhammer" now that they've killed off the WHFB figure game and replaced it with skirmish fantasy-40k.

    I'm far too into customizing my dudes, and I'm trying to model them all after real people in my life

    So I may never do that

    I'm considering trying to find a mod to expand the number of physical customization options I have, because I am spending like ten minutes plus on each likeness every time I get a soldier promoted to squaddie

    I have a chart to pull names from that I'm constantly updating

    After my first few tries on classic I stopped customizing anyone below sergeant. Especially in the first few months it was just not worth it.

    Also the only place that uses Fantasy's 25 years of background (which was arguably the best part of the game) now that they've tossed out that part of the game, too.

    Fortunately enough time has passed that our first-stringers (@Metalbourne, @msuitepyon, @Der Waffle Mous, and @Platypus Beirut) are all recovered and out of the infirmary.

    And they really showed off why they're the first-string team, too.

    First encounter was with a couple of roaming Floaters.

    2015-09-17_00002_zps1ctwmbov.jpg

    We gave them a bit of a run around, but when one tried to jump in and flank in behind us all he found was Mous waiting for an easy tap-de-grace.

    It was then that these overgrown lobster-spiders tried to crash the party.

    2015-09-17_00006_zpsvedbmkwo.jpg

    They moved fast and looked scary, and were bearing down on MB at a rate of knots, but failed to observe appropriate combat formation spacing.

    msuitepyon was having none of it.

    I found MECs more useful in general, gene-warriors I used so far for some specialized niches like dealing with alien-sympathizing traitors. MECs also look much cooler which is even more important. Also socking enemies in the face is great and I was appropriatly happy when my MEC got her nickname "Socks".
