Upon further review of Latin-English dictionaries, it seems fossa is more similar to "trench" or "ditch" than trend.

"Trend" doesn't have a direct translation but I have the following:

inclination:  voluntas  - Venatio Voluntas (Game Inclination or Game Good Will)

bearing:  gestum

tendency:  indoles

I like Venatio Voluntas personally out of those revised suggestions

Gaming Trend in Latin translates loosely as: Venatio Fossa

Harkonis will be joining us soon, and I'm pretty sure he will be playing an Assassin  ninja2

Also once again, if anyone needs Ventrilo access, just PM either myself or Harkonis.

So who's the Legion leader/organizer?  Also I'm sending out friend invites to all the characters that were put up in this thread.

Mr Lettuce,

I must exclaim my extreme displeasure in your decision to create a thread stating that you are the worst fighting game player of all time, when that title clearly belongs to me. That you got 31,000 points in any challenge map in Arkham, undeniably proves that you are better at melee combat than myself. How dare you try to claim my title! I demand an apology, and full submission of the Fighting Belt of Suck to me at once.

Sincerely,
Jeff (4900 pts high score in Sewer Bat)



You probably don't want to know what Kato and I scored in Sewer Bat Extreme, then.

Autistic Angel is a beast with those challenges as well.  Using the batarang during the combat challenges is crucial (at least to me) to keep the combo count going.

I can't help myself.  As soon as I see one of my GT friends get close to my score, I just have to increase the gap  ninja

Did you pass my score on Sewer Bat Extreme yet?

Lol, I'm doing that one right now...... (edit: I finally passed your score by 2000..that was hard)

Quote from: Jarrodhk on September 02, 2009, 07:08:42 PM

Had this one pointed out to me via a thread on Quarter to Three. 

As the title suggests the focus is all about space battles.  There are 3 ship classes at the moment: Fighter, Frigate and, Cruiser.  There are several scenarios to play with that limit the number of pilots and cost of fleet you can field. There are 3 difficulties as well and beating all the scenarios on a difficulty unlocks access to another race.

The game is in beta right now, but like stardock tends to do, you can buy and play now. There are plenty of balance issues and some sound crash issues (that seem to be getting resolved quickly).  The only crash that I've had was fixed extremely quickly and had a workaround up even before that. The developer is very responsive and working hard to get various UI issues handled and is willing to adjust the game as people find problems.

I've already gotten a ton of enjoyment out of the game and can't wait for more modules/hulls/classes of ship to be added. From what various people have said it appears to be very moddable.

No online per se at the moment, but you can set up fleets and post them for people to download and try and beat.  You can also send personal challenges to someone as well.  As soon as Kato lets me know his name in the game I have a couple to send him.

At any rate just wanted to post this here as I don't remember seeing anything on the game on GT.

How long is the game clocking for most here?  I really enjoyed the demo and was wondering how much more I could expect if I got the full game.

I've put in about 4 hours so far and I'm only 12 pecent through the game.  of course, I'm going REALLY slow and savoring every moment.  It's that darn good.  i want to explore every nook and cranny, find all the easter eggs and back story.  plus, the challenge rooms are freakin' great.  i see them easily adding another 10 to 20 hours to my gametime (if not much more).

Spoiler for Hiden:
I had just finished the second fight in the sanitorium and thought to myself, "man, I'd love to come back here and stealth my way through this one" when lo and behold it unlocked about 10 minutes later as a challenge room with the stipulation that i take down the enemies with stealth.   icon_biggrin  i love this game...and i'm gunning for USMC Kato's high score on 'silent knight'.

Ah so you're gunning for my high score eh? Now I must score higher! mua ha ha ha!

I've unlocked 4 challenge rooms (not including the pre-order bonus scarecrow one) and they are all damn fun.  Going to see how long I can stay number one in the GT crowd
2143  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Batman : Arkham Asylum on: August 27, 2009, 07:03:28 PM

Game play is a blast.  Their demo MP options... not so much.  It's peer-to-peer, and no way to see if the host can actually handle a full game, no way to start your own server, etc.  With the full version I expect it will be less of an issue since you can have dedicated PC servers for the 360.  But right now seems just about impossible to find a lag free game.

Definitely going to get the game.

I'll be there day 1

The new Post 911 GI Bill will pay for a full four year degree in your home state so that's something you could take advantage of.

Definately going to use that G.I. Bill during my job transition.  Most likely i'll be staying in the military until I hit 20 years or more.  The Marine Corps will not let me change jobs without losing rank so the plan is to transition into the ARMY. I make fun of the army all the time, but in all honesty they have better opportunities for myself and my family.  I can be an XRAY tech, do financial paperwork, or be even be a firefighter in the Army.  The important thing is that I would finally be home for good and actually be there for my family during the holidays.

Best of luck to you, Kato.  But do you know what this means?  ANOTHER PARTY AT PETEROCK'S WHEN YOU RETURN!  And because of the fish tank incident the entire first floor will be redesigned and renovated to better accomodate guests.  A new kitchen, new bar seating area, new wine bar/drink bar in the dining space, new bathroom, new flooring, etc.  What better way to truly christen the space than when you return from the sandbox? 

And we have more than a year to plan the next shindig.  It shall be even more fabulous than the last one.  Fabulous

Quote from: drifter on August 02, 2009, 12:42:04 AM

I got out of the Marines after 12 years in due to the same concerns.  I was married and with the drawdown that was going on (from 212,000 to 185,000) we were told to expect to be deployed 80% of the time.  I decided it was time to get out and April 1, 1997 was my last active duty day; I had 55 days terminal leave.  My XO came to talk to me one evening when I was the Staff Duty Officer and he confided in me that his proudest accomplishment to date was that he was still on his first marriage; this guy was qualified as a Marine One pilot (able to fly the President) so he respected my decision.

Best decision I ever made, I landed in a great job and have done well from there.  I know a lot of what I have done since getting out was due to what I learned in the Marine Corps.

By the way to everyone that thinks the retirement is great think again.  I went in in 1985 and had I stayed to 20 years I would have gotten 50% of my base pay which comes out to about $1000/month, 30 years would have been 75% base pay.  If you are near a base you can take advantage of the exchange and medical there but active duty have priority over you.  The people that went in only a few years after me didn't get 50% at 20 they lowered it to 35% so the retirement sucks and you are starting over at 38-40 years old; not a good combination.

As a family, we have decided that instead of going to the civilian work force, I can try and find a job pushing papers instead of being in the field all of the time.  Maybe if I can find a job in the military that has a decent schedule I can start to go back to school.  My current skill set does not transfer very well into the civilian world...... one of my regrets for being a combat MOS all these years.

in my experience, people like you, or people in the armed forces are victims of their own sucess.  The better the job you do, the harder it is to change your job.  I'm in my 15th year (enlisted right after high school), and I honestly don't know what else I can do.  The only offer I got was from the Army, instructor for Rangers, Airborne, and Pathfinders in Ft benning

Yesterday, I received orders to back to the great sandbox.  This deployment will last 12 months instead of the 6-7 month period.   icon_frown

After a long talk with the wife, we have decided that one way or another, that this would be my last deployment.  I can change jobs (MOS), or maybe even get out of the armed forces for a civilian job. 

There have been many people in this community that have had to start over professionaly, and its something I really never had to think about.  I have no fear going back to Iraq but I have fear starting my life over. 

Anyways, just wanted to vent a little. 

I'll be deploying within 2 months, and I can't believe I wont be here when Modern Combat 2 is released.
