    Oh wow, I remember this. There was a lot of getting fragged all the time by people who mastered shock combos, yet I couldn't pull them off.

    So how is it? I'm a bit tempted to reinstall and see how it holds up.

    I played a lot of UT3 on a server like that. Rocket-jumping from tower to tower on Facing Worlds (especially in Greed mode with hundreds of skulls) was pure bliss.

    Stuck with only a laptop for the weekend, so I'm digging into some less pc-stressful games like Machinarium and Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes. Might try out Uplink too, just to shut a friend up about it :)

    Well multiplayer is honestly,a clusterfuck for me but still it can be enjoyable. There are still about 500-600 servers online,but even if you won't like multiplayer there are offline modes to keep you occupied for long,also sp campaign is quite good,and bot are actually very threating.

    I never knew a character with a Slim build would be so very, very fast! Just made a third one in DaS (out of curiousity) and this time as a pure Pyromancer with a Dex build. He's doing wonders with a schimitar

    Darksiders.

    Kind of stuck and frustrated at Broken Stairs, that highway miniboss keeps butchering me with this impossible range and massive damage. The genius that invented the block function on the same button as the dash should burn in the depts of hell.

    Just had to watch a vid to remind me of that one. Some tips: Stand at the front of your platform, so the cars he throws at you have a greater chance of landing on your platform. Pick them up and return them into his face. Secondly, from what I remember, his area of effect attacks only do damage if you're on the ground, so try and stay in the air while you fight him. In addition, when he does his AoE attacks, try and navigate around him. He only attacks at the front with his claw attack, so you can take him down without taking too much damage.

    He doesn't actually have too much health, but yes, he does pack a punch. Don't even try to block his attacks, just dodge out of the way.

    Made it to Hell difficulty in Diablo 3. Now I'll wait for 1.4 because it removes bullshit like champion packs healing after you die. I don't know how things like this or invulnerable minions made it into the game in the first place, but I'm glad Blizzard is fixing things.

    I'm also playing Prince of Persia 2008. Some platforming sections in the later areas are amazing. Ubisoft's artists are godly! And it is challenging. The timing is generous, but you have to pay attention or you'll be forced to repeat sequences that last even more than a minute. I love how varied these long-ass sequences are. Sometimes I time them perfectly so that every animation flows naturally into the next and I get really excited lol

    Dowloaded Mechwarrior 4 - Mercenaries which is available for free, although this Mektek downloader thing is a pain in the a** to use.
    Enjoying it a lot so far. Wanted to complete it only with looted mechs but I am now at a mission where that's just not possible as I don't have anything more badass then a Black Knight or Catapult. Well, I guess I have to buy one or two Atlas and fill them with railguns.
    But that has always been my problem with the MW series, it's just an arms race and light/meds loose their viability very fast.

    Don't block. I found blocking to be the most useless fighting mechanic in this game. Just dash and jump around.
    Also you can try to catch the cars he throws at you and throw them back. One or two hits should bring him down to almost zero health.

    I tried that but my timing is often horrible and get a flying car against my face, eating almost half of my health if not torpedo me off from the highway. I also tried jumping+ slashing but his attacks are in all directions and he manages to hit my mid-air as well.

    Cherry-tap him then. Dash in, slash a few times, dash away. Slower, but it will work. Also, if you have the souls for it, see if you can purchase the ability that is...errrm, it might be called the home run, but basically you hit the enemy and send them flying. More importantly, even on enemies that are too large to send flying, it can set them on fire for a short time, doing last damage.

    Finally getting into Geneforge 1 after buying the series on GOG with the introductory discount a few months back. I'm interested, and really hoping it's much better than Avadon. It's earned some marks by putting me up against reasonably bothersome enemies from shortly after the introduction, rather than weaning me on rats. I don't really like Vogel's way of boxing you in so that you only have one or two choices of where to go next, though - fine in a dungeon, hard not to notice aboveground.

    Other than that, having a great time with Dredmor since the Wizardlands expansion came out, though as I'd played fairly little of it beforehand, that's not necessarily a measure of the new material.

    Hexen. Rumour has it it's a FPS but it's actually a first-person metroidvania. It's also damn confusing because the game rarely bothers with telling you what flipping that lever even did. Maybe it opened a gate on the other side of the map or maybe it just released a horde of ettins right behind you. Besides from such frustrations, it's mostly fun but definitely less of a Doom clone than Heretic.
    It's still basically a playable heavy metal album cover.

    I have the homerun move, tricky thing is though; it has a little bit of a charge up time before it actually hits, so I need to stand still for a moment plus the charge for the move, I'll try it. That checkpoint is also crazy, having to walk all the way back when you die.

    BF3

    Had a good round in which I flew F35 and killed everything, dodged missiles, reparied on the carrier four times, never died. Sadly that didn't really help my team and we lost.

    To show their appreciation for all that I have done for them, the people of Megaton pooled their caps and got me a ... box of Sugar Bombs. Woo.

    Maybe I should have blown up the town after all.

    Felt the same way, but couldn't do it during my second run either. I suck at being evil. I start off thinking I'll be the Lex Luthor (the real one, not the wimpy Smallville one with daddy issues) of the Wasteland, but once I begin my mayhem spree of ultimate doom I start feeling awful about getting negative Karma because I stole someone's squirrel sticks.

    The weird thing is, I don't have the need for everyone to like me in real life, but I can't stand the thought of anyone disliking my character. Maybe it's some sort of parental feeling because I "created a life!" or something. I don't know but I don't like it. All the cool kids are evil..

    The problem with the "evil" option in FO3, and most games, is that it's so poorly incentivized. I think you get 500 caps out of blasting a city off the map? What the hell is that?

    Purely self-interested evil has always been more fun in games, IMO, than random psychotic killer evil. That is, I'll take neutral evil over chaotic evil every time.

    kotor 2 does the evil part really well. at the end you turn into a complete monster who had scarred the galaxy for thousand years...
    the only thing missing was some nice genocide.
