  1. Installing Jagged Alliance 2 for the first time.

    Anyone have any opinions about this game? Anything I should know in advance?

    I've had a lot of fun with that game too, especially online. So simple, yet so addictive...

    I'm currently playing Euro Truck Simulator (trying out my new steering wheel) and Battlefield Vietnam with a Norwegian friend.

    Ground Control & the expansion. great squadbased RTS without having to manage a base and building stuff etc.

    (it's also up on for only 5.99 USD, and it's certainly worth that!)

    Finally caved and bought Psychonauts. Played through the (huge) first level, and I'm loving it. It's funny and endearing enough to blind me from the fact that I despise third-person platformers.

    Also borrowed a friend's copy of crysis to finally give it a real playthrough, since I had tried the demo way back when it was released and thought it was a piece of shit.

    Well, yep. Still a piece of shit. Graphics are unimpressive unless you're playing on ultra, but then you're probably going to have a pretty crippled framerate. On medium or even high, up-close world textures look like they were ripped straight out of morrowind. Muddy, blurry and ugly. I guess it wasn't ALL bad though, the awesomely stereotypical engrish accents the korean soldiers have had me laughing my ass off the entire time playing.

    Been reading your LP on the codex about that. Man your so much better at it than me.
    Maybe I should play a less squishy team than humans.

    I started up in Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise again. Despite Professor Pester annoying the hell out of me I'm having a blast.

    And then, enjoy being shot by plants. Them camo-Koreans are absolutely invisible with their high-res texture uniforms backdropped against a high-res forest.

    I just finished Harbinger.

    Diablo in space. Lotsa details that are totally aggravating, but not too shabby either.

    Interrupts are based on the "Level" stat so you should hire one upper level merc (3-4) to start who has a decent gun (rifle). Terrain can be a little dodgy so I prefer to take the high ground and stick to the rooftops. Switching between standing/crouching/prone 2-3 spaces from the edge allows you to pop in and out of LOS and take shots without much hazard of being attacked back. Keep a safety character on the roof just to shoot anybody who climbs up to attack.

    Finished Mechwarrior 3, thanks to a fan-fix that fixes most of the game's problems (gravity, collisions).
    Damn, blowing shit up with an Annihilator armed only in ER PPCs is always fun B)
