    Go to the AngryJoeShow, open the links for the top ranked games, and watch the reviews. Play the one which seems the most interesting. That's how I started Civ 5: Brave New World. Caused me to barely sleep for 3 weeks straight

    Oh. AND how I got Southpark: Stick of Truth. If you haven't played that then you're SERIOUSLY missing out
  2. ViralBunny liked a post in a topic by Jemtai in Nexus: Jupiter Incident anyone?   
    Considering that Star Citizen and Mandate will not be coming for a while, I have decided to dig up this old Space Strategy game to tide myself over until they come. Anyone played this before? AND if you have, would you agree that it is a one-of-a-kind space strategy game? With delicious complexity, once you get the hang of it, and we absolutely need  a sequel? Well, that's not likely to happen,  but at least Star Citizen and Mandate will go some way to easing the hurt.

    Just wanted to remind you guys of one of the really unique games that absolutely need to be not so unique anymore (give us sequels!)

    I'm assuming you're a console player, otherwise, yes, you'd be the only PC player who prefers sitting on the floor =P

    I'm with you! Awesome game, truly. Loved that Epic Cane with the Mobster Rat that only fairy...female? Ninjas could use. Talk about limited issue. Only sad thing is that firearms were not as uber as I would have liked =( Only person I would give a ranged musket is the Mook gadgeteer, and he already had his Omnigun Mark 6. Put in some enchanted quarrels and you've got a ballista

    Well have finally beaten the game on Impossible with second wave options and ironman and the game have been the thing i have hated and loved the most. (I cheated once with alt + f4!)
     
    Well briefly the game is a lot harder then Enemy Unknown and you are forced to learn some basic spawn positions on every single map (All spawn position on council missions) if you want to beat it on higher level then classic you should read some guide lines from the wiki :=)

    Why, sir? Why did you bring up MechCommander? I was happy having left the game forgotten, but now I am cursed once more with my glorious memories that leave me longing for such wonders yet again.

    Glad I'm not the only dinosaur around here I played so many old games when they were new, and yet missed so many. GOG is gold if you feel nostalgic btw. They have ton of the truly good old classics.
    Let's not forget Sierra, the king of the adventure games: Leisure Suit Larry 1-7 (8 was made by Atari and is awful), King's Quest 1-7, Space Quest 1-3, Gabriel Knight 1-2, Police Quest 1-2 (the original SWAT was theirs too, but never sold well).
     
    Sierra and LucasArts defined the adventure game genre, and the format was so solid it barely changed at all till the genre died out (Deponia is a great comeback to that style and humour).
     
    I've played and owned pretty much every single title Sierra ever released, including Grand Prix Legends, which I think is the only historical racing simulator ever made. It was AFAIK the first racing game made for PC that basically required wheel+pedals to even be playable because of the incredibly realistic physics engine. Gamepads (controllers) were not really a thing for PC back then, and most of them were digital.
     
    I remember playing SimCity - the original shareware version Will Wright made with a couple friends before they had a real publisher. And just about every Sim game Maxis made afterwards (Tower Sim was an addictive game, even if it was extremely primitive - if you find it, get it and play it, it should still run in Win95 mode on modern machines, or on the emulators).
     
    Lost many days to Civilization. Dune 2 and Dune 2000 pretty much took over in place of doing homework. Wolfenstein 3D spread to every computer we had at school, alongside Tank Wars (made in 1986 - http://www.squakenet.com/download/tank-wars/908/ ) << note the amazing sound assets. We still played it in 2002, though it might have been a remake, not entirely sure.).
     
    Stunts - first racing game to include a track editor. It was made by the people who made The Duel (Test Drive 2) and for the time it had great 3D graphics. Think we're talking 1995 here, so there wasn't much competition. Track Mania is pretty much the only modern game to have a similar editor.
     
    Under a Killing Moon - not sure if it was a first, but I remember it as such (not the first in the series mind you) It mixed video of real actors on blue/green screen with 3D environments and multiple-choice conversations. It was one of the first games I remember being on 4 CDs, simply because video compression didn't really exist when it came out.
    Need for Speed Underground 2 I think is the last modern game to use that video technique (Josie Maran, you're cute, but you can't act, sorry).
     
    A lot of people think Tomb Raider was the first game with a female lead, but it was actually Jill of the Jungle by Epic MegaGames in 1992. Though not quite up to the level of Mario, Jill had the ability to magically transform into a fish or a bird to cross obstacles.
     
    There are tons other games I played back then, but I can't remember the title of many of them.
  10. Simmie liked a post in a topic by Jemtai in Warhammer 40000 games   
    Chaos Gate was just EPIC. The turn based bits could get tiring at times, but that's just normal for turn based games. However anyone who has ever played it will remember if you just say "Join ussss" =P 

    DOW Retribution, however....was just mindblowingly lazy. I played first on Space Marine, in which Techmarine Martellus was around...and I was like...didn't you go rogue in Chaos Rising? Pretty sure I killed you already? Never mind, let bygones be bygones...then I played Imperial Guard, and I was ....like....this looks familiar? THEN I played Tyranids...holy SHIT THE CAMPAIGN MAPS ARE ALL THE SAME. IT'S NOT MY IMAGINATION. Unbelievable. Never seen such a lazy-ass campaign system before. Compared to Chaos Gate, which is ancient....Retribution totally ranks below Chaos Gate. Even that even more ancient Eldar based game, Rites of War was way better than DOW Retribution. Actually I quite like Rites of War. It's still playable 20 years later, even on turn based, without all the special effects.
  11. TheRogueMonk liked a post in a topic by Jemtai in Games are getting bad what is your experince   
    A good example...Red Alert 3. Yeah, there are babes in EVERY cinematic in EVERY faction...but...it's not supposed to be porn, it's supposed to be Red Alert! Yes, the gameplay is fun....and super easy....and over in a few hours? Um. Red Alert 2 gave a much better impression overall.

    Or Rome Total War 2...a very good example.  A game from a franchise which has traditionally delivered DE BEST in gaming experiences (for fans of that genre)...WTF happened? Total FUBAR. Or the ending of ME3. They may not be getting worse, but it's easy to see why someone would say "Uhh...is it just me, or is there a wave of WTF covering the land?"
  12. Zenedar liked a post in a topic by Jemtai in XCOM Enemy Within   
    I just reached the Base Invasion mission. On a scale of one to ten, the impression it makes on me is an 8. Holy Shit Level. Most impressive. 

    ...my Support Major just got stuck IN A PILLAR. As in, RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE PILLAR. That's a Holy Shit situation also, although in a different way. With Great Fun....comes Great Bugs? My enemy unknown experience was remarkably bug free; I'm seeing a few in Enemy Within, although this is the first one to seriously affect gameplay.
  13. EQ501 liked a post in a topic by Jemtai in Reviews, how important are they?   
    Importance of reviews.....7.5 out of 10? Some games you buy for the franchise no matter what the review says, like Starcraft or Total War. But then again some games are SO bad (like Rome Total War 2) that you might actually NOT buy the game after reading the review. Might. So...7.5 to 8 over 10, I guess

  15. Jemtai liked a post in a topic by Scout in Are you religious?   
    You see, my point of view is that it doesn't matter.  95% of the world's population believes in some form of higher being, one way or another. The God I worship is also the same God many other people worship, just in a different way. Although we sometimes disagree on the method, the fundamental aspect of most religions remain the same. Our disagreements really don't matter because it's fundamentally connected by the same simple principles. 
    Treat others good and be a good person. 
    I would argue that Creationism is in fact, a THEORY because it's an account written in a book in which it's stories HAVE empirical evidence to back them up.  To simply disregard one very important section of the Bible as Myth because it seems 'far fetched' would be folly.  Especially considering how many of it's stories scientist have for many years poo-pooed on and have been since proven real.
    I believe people of science tend to instantly roll their eyes at the Bible and the things in it (and other religions for that matter) simply BECAUSE they are things of the spiritual aspects of life and to even touch anything to do with religion makes you a target for ridicule among those who would claim themselves to be the scientific elite. 
    I think it's ...for lack of a better word, arrogant, for those people to claim they understand the universe and the great mystery of life. 
    Give a Engineer wood and metal and he can make a building, but give all the scientists of the world all the elements of the earth and they still can't create life. 
    My thoughts are that man are not ready to understand the workings of God. To understand the mind(s) of a omnipotent being, of our creator, would be something our minds are just not capable of understanding... It's for this reason, I think, that most people who believe themselves 'smart' are unable to accept that God exist. Because that would mean admitting you are a simple... so very very a simple thing.
