  1. I approve of this, since it happens to be on the same day as my birthday!

    8 levels?! In a month?! Holy Crap. Not a bad bit of leveling. Even a new banner (for assault rifles).

    New look, new gun, new...class? No, this isn't an April Fool's hoax. I decided to expand my horizons and try out the Combat Medic class. And holy crap am I having way more fun. He's holding his Cycler TRV (which is now my favoritest gun EVER!!!) In all honestly, this gun is amazing. Chances are I will be focusing on my Medic directives for the time being.

    Looks like someone has been busy. I'm currently working on my LMG certifications. So far, I need one more LGM (T32 Bull) to get the Gold certification (and a free Banner). Gotta love that NS-15M2 he's sporting. However, with my recent purchase of Crusader Kings 2 and Europa Universalis IV, I might be a bit distracted.

    New face, new gun (T-16 Rhino), tons of kills!

    After a break from PlanetSide 2 (thanks to Skyrim ), I'm back to playing one of my favorite FPS's. Now, he's camo'd out and is holding his trusty MSW-R.
  7. While I can't recommend Civ 5 or Beyond Earth, I actively play Civ 4, mainly the Caveman to Cosmos Super Mod. I've started (a LONG time ago) with Civ 2, then Civ 3, and currently Civ 4. I am looking forward to Civ 5, but I probably won't play Beyond Earth. I've heard its a lot of "meh".
  8. So yea, this Civ might be a bit old, but I haven't had a chance to try out Civ V. Right now I'm playing the Caveman to Cosmos Super Mod for Civ IV. Has anyone else tried it? I'm interested in your experiences, horror stories, successes, etc...
  9. How about something WITHOUT the friggin' Warscape engine?! Medieval 3 by far, or something fresh, like a Warhammer Fantasy license.
  10. Hello Angry Army, I'm curious, who in this great Angry Army still plays Medieval 2: Total War? To me, this is by far one of my favorite RTS's I've ever played. But, I'm wondering if there are others here who still play. I'm thinking up a challenge of sorts and I'm looking for thoughts, ideas, etc... -Marcoosi
  11. I suppose the argument that can be made is that CA needs the 4-5+ years for development. It was roughly 2 years after Shogun 2 was released that Rome 2 launched, which was a total disaster. My understanding is that even with all of the patches, the game still runs pretty terrible. I wouldn't know from personal experience, I have a friend who is rather happy with it. But more often then not, I've heard Rome 2 is just terrible. For me, I tried Empire, and I was disappointed and irritated with the game. That's why I pretty much stay with Medieval 2. In my opinion, it is by far the most superior Total War game, with Rome 1 right behind it. So, in all honesty, I want CA to take as much time as they need to get the next Medieval right. If it were to have a bad launch of its own, I probably would never play another CA game again. I understand your point, though. There are times I wish a new Medieval on the market. But, I would hope you would agree that CA should take the time to get it right. Ohh, and they should go back to the original engine, and not that crappy Warscape engine, or whatever it's called.
  12. Glad to see people still showin' Medi2 some love

    My TR character as of August 27
  14. I'll have to add that to my wishlist
  15. I'm working out some sort of a dynasty or house challenge. It's still a little hard to explain, but I will try my best. I like the family tree aspect of the Total War franchise (was seriously bummed when I heard the Rome 2 stripped it out), and I am into Medieval history. I always found it interesting how the family backed then garnered their power through politics, wars, alliance, etc... So, a couple years ago (I've played this game A LOT...) I started tooling around with the idea of creating, or at least influencing my ruling family and the direction they take. Recently, I played as England, and beat the game. All the while, I noticed that my ruling family (House of Old Sarum, in this case) remained chivalrous through 3 generations, highly chivalrous at that. A lot of this "challenge" (I think experiment is more of an apt description right now) is fluff based, and requires a decent amount of imagination. Back to my example earlier, the current king, is named Augustine. I also had him take his grandfather's and father's name of James, so he became James "Augustine" III. During his reign, he reunited all of Italy under the English banner, so as fluff, I renamed him James Augustus III, partially after Caesar Augustus. Of course when I beat the game, he finally became Emperor James Augustus III, High King of England, so on and so forth. Sorry if it seemed like I rambled on and on, but the idea is to create a family and tell a story through their reign. I'm no where near furnishing rules or regs for this, and I was kind of hoping that there were more members of the Angry Army who played this, because I think this would be something interesting to do. Now I have to get back to getting ready for work, lol
  16. Welcome aboard
  17. I'm interested in anyone's thoughts, opinions, whatever... Recently, I ordered a new desktop PC, after using my old one for 7 years. It's an Alienware X51. Due to financial restrictions, I have to go on the cheap, which is weird to say about an Alienware. I was able to upgrade the memory to 8GB. Even though it's fairly stock, with the exception of the memory upgrade, I was impressed with the specs. However, I'm interested in anyone's feedback or opinions about the X51. I tend to not trust the reviews on company sites (I'm actually surprised how astroturfed some of the reviews can be) and I want to hear back from the Angry Army. I want to get involved in gaming with you guys and girls, and I just want to make sure I made a good choice in gaming machines. Looking forward to your feedback. Cheers, my friends. -Marcoosi
  18. *UPDATE* Dell finally shipped the PC. Should be getting it by Wednesday (possibly sooner). Hopefully I will be up and running by the weekend.
  19. So yeah, my experience with Dell is getting worse in a real hurry. They pushed the delivery date AGAIN, to supposedly August 7th. Personally, I'm not holding my breath. Their reason for the delays, according to Dell, is that the extra part I ordered (a memory upgrade from 6GB to 8GB) isn't available. Whether or not that's the case is a whole different story. *deep sigh* My patience with Dell is wearing thin real quick, and I really REALLY want to be a part of the Angry Army in a more proper way, instead of just cruising the forums. This computer is the only thing holding me up.
  20. I appreciate your thoughts on the matter. The only irritating thing about this is that Dell pushed the delivery date a week. *sigh* friggin' Dell...
  21. That's fine with me. Considering that overall I didn't have problems with my PC (until recently), I am happy to hear that. By then, I hope to have built my own machine to my specifications.
  22. Ok, so far the general idea I've gotten is "What are you, stupid? Build your own PC!!!" lol jk But seriously, if I could, I would build my own. Circumstances, on the other hand, dictate otherwise. First and foremost, my current PC, the one I am using RIGHT NOW, is SEVEN flippin' years old (and still runs XP). And when I got it, it was a functioning piece of crap. However, I tend to make the most out of my situation, be it computers or RPG characters. It worked OK, but I never could play anything amazing down the road. Second, I'm going through my parents, by using their Dell account (I know, Dell). By doing this, I will only have to make payments, as opposed to outright buying it. I don't know about most of you, but I ain't exactly swimming in disposable income, so buying outright isn't an option. Now, I know some of you could argue that I probably can build a better PC than any prebuilt on the market, but time is also kind of a restriction. I don't know how long my current PC has before it decides to die. I made a few rookie, or newb, mistakes recently and I all but ruined my computer. I supposed I could have clarified some things in my earlier posts, and thats my fault. Right now, I'm just looking for feedback and opinions on the X51. Although, I do appreciate all of the opinions I've read so far. Thanks.
  23. I value your opinion nonetheless
  24. The long and short of it is my current computer is old and dying. Trust me, I would much rather build my own beast, but this is NEED as opposed to WANT. Beside, the computer I have now can't run anything. Another reason is that I'm going through my folks to get this (at a decent price), instead of outright buying it, which I can't really do right now. So yeah, it's part logistical, part need.
  25. Yea, that wasn't really an option for me, but eventually I plan on building my own machine
