    Canadian math. I always wonder how you hosers get so good with numbers.

    I've got an extension for that. It says 1541 people ≈ population of Christmas Island, nation.

    I wonder how many games allow you to plausibly get a body count that would stretch all around the equator. You'd need... about 25 million corpses?
    Irrelevant on further examination of the rest of the thread.

    Any game that allows you to use a large bomb/bomb from orbit? I'm sure there's the odd game that allows you to blow up a planet.

    Reminds me of the orphan stat in Alpha Protocol, which gave a direct means of measuring how much of a bastard you are.

    While I'm here then, a bit of Star Trek: Online and its decent space combat. A smidge of Sonic and All Stars Racing Trasnformed, of which I managed to reach 100% completion and unlock the Triple Star award/achievement. Of course, it should be noted that you can surpass 100%; I think it goes up to 104 or 106. Some of the time trials can go suck it though, just absurdly hard. Great challenge though, really highlights just how good the game is.

    I suppose the biggest one though would be Dota 2. It's just fun to play and there's a real sense of satisfaction that comes from a long, balanced game that even if you do lose, you feel like it was a good fight and that everyone won in enjoyment. Of course, that doesn't always happen thanks to smurf accounts hampering an already not great matchmaking system.

    In the mean time, my backlog weeps.

    Any single planetary siege in Sword of the Stars comes to mind. Casualties are regularly in the 10's or 100's of millions.

    Inspiring me to check my unimpressive multiplayer stats.

    Strangely, I stopped playing Battlefield 3 and BFBC2 at approximately the same times (around level 15) but the kills in Battlefield 3 were almost exactly half what they were in Bad Company 2:

    Battlefield 3: 552 Kills
    Bad Company 2 (on PC): 1,103 Kills
    Bad Company 2 (on XBOX): 2,198 Kills

    ...so that's weird.

    Otherwise, I'm currently playing Crusader Kings 2, the Ys Series, and trying to get 100% Completion in Red Dead Redemption.

    My kills in RDR are rather monstrous. I don't remember the total count up to this point, but I'd imagine it's somewhere in the 10,000+ range. You kill a lot of people in that game when you spend 150 hours running around.

    Now I'll have to look up the stats for every other game I own, too.

    In Max Payne 3 I killed more people through Head shots alone -so there were hundreds of other deaths too-in a narrative time frame of about a week than my entire army did in Shogun 2 in a full stacks battle with unit sizes on huge.

    In between long sessions of Brave New World which really improves Civ V (although it needs patching. Some things are a little unbalanced although nothing major) I've also been playing Mark of the Ninja. Loving this even though I'm not usually that big on stealth. It's all put together beautifully well.

    And comparing your scores at the end of each stage with those in your friends list is a nice touch. I'm a few stages in but I'm finally beating Mnemnoch's scores :)

    Actually, I don't think it is. A lot of BC2's maps are infantry focused so you're more likely to be engaging in on foot shoot-outs. The reduction in vehicles means less support points for repairing, the fact that regenerating health was faster in BC2 also negated significant use of med packs leaving ammo the only immediate resource. You also get a lot more assist/squad based points in BF3.

    Oh geez. It's like that scene in War Games, except you feel a tingling sense of responsibility that millions have just died under your watch and there was nothing you could do to save them.

    In terms of points? It'd be hard to because between BF2142 and BC1 they changed how points are doled out. It used to be 1 point for an assist or kill, two for an objective. Now it's all over the place up into the hundreds. On the one hand, the inflation for providing points for assists makes sense as to make those assists worthwhile, on the other, I think they've ended up giving less of am emphasis on general objective/team-play by effectively making sure that gun-fights give you more points than objectives will.

    Finally got round to starting The Walking Dead: 400 Days. Not sure if it is as good as the original game, was expecting the stories to start intertwining, but two down and there is no sign of that happening (or that it is even possible, with the decision-heavy plots and unspecified order). Just a prologue for the second series maybe? Hum.

    stellar converter in Master of Orion. Also magically turns tiny very poor planets into medium sized with average content of minerals.

    What are you driving, a wormhole?

    In our most recent (and first, and likely only) RPS Chat Defcon match, I killed a mere .7 million people with a score of -60.

    Comparitively speaking, I played a pacifist.

    I just meant the fact that they're all almost exactly halves of each other.

    2,206/2 = 1,103 and 1,104/2 = 552

    Because the rest of the world - not just Canada - has standardised mathematical systems unlike the various batshit insane numerics Americans use? :)
