I don't even fathom where to begin a clean up and where to put all the debris just to begin a clean up process.

Seeing that I highly doubt that there will be a lot of MP servers with decent pings to me, would this game be worth it for the SP campaign alone?

A touching story about a couple of dogs who are victims of the tsunami. It's in Japanese but the translation is provided on the bottom of the webpage:

Ok posted in the forums on my thoughts re this

http://www.blendogames.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&p=2407#p2407

The site admin, which I'm assuming is the programmer, replied to your post. Wow, he may actually listen to people's ideas and implement them, that would be awesome.

The infantry unit is my fav. Its when you have barricades, the atttractor thing and the single one of explosions - that is then impossible, the only thing you can do is evacuate as many as you can but its not fun frown

It is when your job is to evac. I was in a level 4 town, my job is zed eradication. The infantry doesn't move fast enough to catch them all.

One thing I don't like is you don't get to pick the mercanaries you get or have for missions and it can give you some really poor choices where you haven't a hope.

+1 on this. Trying to kill off all zeds in the city with just an infantry unit and some landmines made for some very frustrating retries.

interesting fact on video:  3 of the 4 corners of the 'ring of fire' (chile, christchurch, japan) have had major earthquakes almost all within a year.

Doh...don't say that! We all no where the 4th corner is and I just happen to live quite close to it.  paranoid Unless of course Mother Nature decides to go for the upper 4th corner like she did in 64.

Yeah, VRaverna and I are dead smack in the middle of the Ring of Fire, so here's hoping nothing major is coming our way anytime soon.

I'd buy it but still depends on pricing. It's basically the same M&B core game, so if they priced it under $20 it's a buy for me, otherwise I'd stick to mods of M&B and Warband til F&S goes on sale.

I've been looking for a decent p&s camera too and so far, from the reviews I read, the Canon PowerShot S95 seems to be a good pick. It's a p&s with a nice set of manual controls.

131  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: Netbook needed mainly for writing (about $400 or less) on: January 28, 2011, 02:20:12 AM
I'm with Blackjack on this one. If you do a lot of writing, you'll probably want a keyboard, and maybe even a bigger screen. I'd probably look more into the 13" screens compared to the 10" of the netbooks. If battery is one of the concerns, I'd go with the CULV laptops (I think Intel SU processor series). If you do decide on a netbook, I think the new Intel N550 is a dual-core nano.

I'd check http://www.techbargains.com for daily deals on laptops

I remember in the very early 90's going into a Software Etc and writing stuff down from the hint book to Zelda: A Link to the Past. Don't recall what problem I was having but the guy caught me and asked me to stop smile

Whoa, I remembered some of those hint books come with red plastics that you have to use to read the pages. I think they were Sierra On Line hint books.

I'm trying out the Dual Wield character but my play time is pretty limited so I've only gotten to level 3 or 4.

What are the books for? Should I be keeping them after reading or just selling them? What about gems, are they good for anything or just for selling?
139  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Saboteur for the PC, and a warning for ATI users on: January 05, 2011, 02:29:23 AM
I use an ATI card and the game runs. However, I do have a bug with the map that is part of the ATI problem. When I zoom out or in and move around on the map screen, the map markers (current locations, waypoint marker, etc) don't scale / move with the map, so they're practically useless.   The game runs fine though.
140  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Steam Holiday Haul 2010 on: January 04, 2011, 01:13:43 AM
Here's mine, thought I spent way more than this but after looking at the list, it's not too bad:


Bethesda Pack    $69.99
The Witcher    $5.00
Greed: Black Border    $2.49
Puzzle Quest    $1.50
Railworks 2    $6.00
King Arthur Pack    $5.39
Dragon Age Awakening    $14.99
Cities XL 2011    $19.99
SimCity 4 Deluxe    $4.99
Lost Horizon    $9.99
Mafia II DLC    $7.94
Divinity II    $26.79
Amnesia    $6.80
Winterbottom    $0.49

Total of $182.35.

Would've shaved off $7 if I had bought Divinity II during the sale instead of the day after. Now I just have to find time to play them all.

After a couple of days Steam sales break, now I'm tempted by MOH, Divinity 2 and the Mafia DLCs. I want Settlers 7 too but not until the permanent internet connection DRM is removed.

Is MOH worth it at $30?

This is proving to be a pleasant way to spend an hour or so.  I've completely mastered driving diesels and electrics but haven't tried steam yet; I assume it must be quite different and much more complicated.  A few observations:

  • How are you supposed to know when a different speed limit comes up?  The first I ever know about it is when the limit shown beneath my speed suddenly changes and I find myself 40km/h over the limit.

For speed changes you get a warning on the side of the tracks first, a yellow signal that looks like an arrow pointing down with the speed limit coming up posted on it. Usually there are 2 posted on it, the top number is for passenger trains the bottom is for freight trains. After that, the next yellow speed limit signal that you see will be the start of the speed limit area.

that's the same thing I came up with.
