  1. Important If True 6: Get Hoisted

    So although it sounds like a degrading nautical punishment, it basically means "get blown up by your own grenade". It kind of blew my mind when I looked that up.
  2. Free to play hunting game -- The Hunter

    So...this topic actually exists! Awesome! The reason I'm raising it from the dead is because I've recently gotten back into playing this after having played some DayZ, and it's quite interesting how much parallel there is between the way both games work in terms of pacing. This is obviously much more casual in it's theme (nothing is trying to kill you), and it's single player only. I'd recommend anyone who likes DayZ and has any interest in a game with similar pacing to give it a go. Also, if you like it, there is also an entry on Greenlight here: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=94011364
  3. Team Fortress 2 Co-op! Mann vs. Machine

    Yep, that's exactly how it reads. Play it free whenever, or if you want to try for special items, then pay for Mann up mode.
  4. Return of the Rise of the Triads

    Yeah, I want to see how it turns out. If it's bad then too bad. Maybe they could do it well though. Maybe. (I have a soft spot for that era of gaming, in case you couldn't tell)
  5. Return of the Rise of the Triads

    Did either of you play the original? There is a solid story behind the game, its extremely over the top and unrealistic, but it was there. The Triad was some kind of cult that were breeding monsters to take over the world. Also Undead monks. If you hadn't played the original, you might not realise that the cowering in fear was part of that game too. I remember when one of the guys first did that I stopped shooting. IIRC, he collapsed as if dead, then a few seconds later got up and started shooting me in the back. I thought it was a clever bit of AI deception that hadn't existed in many similar games at the time. Why they've emphasised that element of the game in the trailer I have no idea.
  6. Return of the Rise of the Triads

    If they succeed in simply recreating the fun of the original ROTT in a more modern engine, that could be a good thing. Consider how much fun you can get out of "Retro" platformers these days. Couldn't the same thing happen to FPS? I don't see how this is different to most FPS games in existence? I agree that this is the wrong message to send to anyone, but it's so over the top it's hard to see the blood as anything other than strawberry jam, which makes it seem less violent than modern "serious" FPS games.
  7. I agree with this wholeheartedly. Game stories have different focuses to movie stories, and I think some of the biggest mistakes come from trying to move the exact same story from one format to another. In the same vein, I'd hate to see a movie about Gordon Freeman, but I'd love an "Escape from Black Mesa" one, from other people's perspectives. Gordon shouldn't be in it at all.
  8. Though this was a valid criticism for a little while after the new items launched, I recall an update including this setting a very long time ago. I've never seen a public server have it enabled though. EDIT: You know, if they did add it (I'm sure I saw it way back) then they've hidden it well. All a server needs to do is disconnect itself from the item server to make itself vanilla again though...
  9. The Mojang Scrolls

    I had hoped that the game would include more "tactics", perhaps some interesting maps to drop your creatures into, and a little bit of micromanagement of them (while still in a turn based framework).
  10. I found "Meet the Pyro" to be quite disturbing... But all in all I'm glad that they've finally finished all the films. I found that myself for about 6 months, then I found a group of people who wanted to play and am having a blast again. I think as the game goes on, having good (and fun) team mates is more and more important to enjoyment of the game.
  11. New people: Read this, say hi.

    That was an accidental smiley. I claim no credit for its sudden appearance in my post.
  12. New people: Read this, say hi.

    Hello! I'm Karsaroth. I'm joining because: A) I have been looking for a good gaming community since I got a little estranged from my previous one. I really liked the old podcast. C) I would like to play on the MC server. The CAPTCHA I got was "its kehter" which had me worried that I'd be creating some sort of world ending event until I realised it wasn't spelt correctly. Dodged a bullet there. In closing, I believe I have demonstrated an ability to write words.
