Sigh, couldn't help myself and bought some cosmetic DLC for Anno 2070. I guess I'm a sucker for making my Eco cities look good, and I hate those small few tile areas you can't fit anything in.
Just started playing AirBuccaneers. I never got around to playing the UT2k4 mod, so this is my first experience of it, and it's bloody ace.
First time out I was piloting a 2-man balloon and my gunner and I saw a small brown package being lobbed onto the deck of our ship. It was only afterwards when I was plummeting toward the ground, and on my knees with laughter, did I realise it was a grenade.
There seems quite a lot of room for strategy as well, with the boarding mechanics and the different types of balloons. Kamikaze balloons are pure evil, and it's amazing getting into a panic trying to shoot one down as it floats closer and closer to your ship!
However, the fact that there's only one populated server in the entire world, is a crying shame. It makes me sad to see such innovative FPS multiplayer being ignored whereas so many bog-standard deathmatch variants are incredibly popular.

Just turned Mira and Handmaiden into Jedi. Yay.
GOTO joined my team also and I hate his guts. Stupid asshole. Plus he is so useless. Does anyone use him at all?
I loved HK-47 when I was younger, but his act got stale. Maybe due to all those comics inserting a HK-like character. GO-TO was a nice change of pace.
So I'm perforating my way through Sniper Elite V2, pun intended. Of course, I'm playing it all wrong, as the game clearly intends for me to, well, be a stealthy, creeping assassin, but I just can't get into that, which is weird because I generally love trying to clear levels in these types of games without a kill (unless required). But this game just doesn't inspire that mode for me. It probably has something to do with the wonderfully gruesome kill-shot highlights, which I can't get enough of, just like the slo-mo face-explosions in Fallout 3 and New Vegas. I'm finding the game the most fun by going on full attack mode from a distance and just seeing if I can manage the resulting flanking attempts with nothing but my sniper rifle and gadgets. Of course, I'm only on the fourth level, so this tactic might become impossible as the difficulty ramps up.
Anyway, so far, I highly recommend the game, although I wouldn't pay $49.99 for it. Perfect fodder for a Steam sale or whatnot.
EDIT: Just found out the whole Sniper game collection is on sale at GamersGate. Redeems on Steam. Great timing :)
Do you need to play KOTOR 1 before playing second one,i heard second one is much better.
You don't need KOTOR 1. But I wouldn't sign off on that rumour.
There will probably quite a lot of things in KoToR 2 you wouldn't get without playing 1.
Play 1 first, it's still a good RPG with an enjoyable story, it's just fairly by the numbers. It was made in a time when you were still allowed to be incredibly evil at points, too. It's just that 2 has a very good story and some great moments, that tries to push the boat out a bit more than the first ever does.
I think the first KOTOR is a great game, and worth it on its own merits. As pointed out above, if you like being evil in games KOTOR will let you be pretty darned evil at times.
To be honest you may prefer KOTOR1 as I felt the combat was more balanced throughout. I prefer KOTOR2 but then I tend to go for story/character stuff over gameplay (so long as the gameplay is at least servicable or inoffensive).
They're both great games though, and playing the first will only make you think better of the second.
There's a pretty decent game underneath all the performance issues in Rage, but it's definitely the worst running game I've played in years. And I don't even have any AMD/ATI hardware that could give me trouble.
I remember when I first played Kotor 1 I was in high school. I've fallen in love with Bastila, heh.
KOTOR 1 and 2 it is then! Also i kept playing METRO 2033 and need to admit,i'm quite enjoying it,need to find out who or what are the dark ones!
Going up to the twi'lek dancers, turning sideways, and activating your lightsaber in a vulgar manner at pants-height should get you a public indecency charge at least.
Do you have to be a jedi in the KOTOR games? All this talk of lightsabers, what if I want to shoot people instead?
